Liev Schreiber Reveals Why His Proudest Golden Globe Memory Involves His Son Sasha (Exclusive)

Liev Schreiber Reveals Why His Proudest Golden Globe Memory Involves His Son Sasha (Exclusive)
Liev Schreiber earned his sixth career Golden Globe nomination earlier this week, his fifth straight for his performance as the title character in Showtime’s Ray Donovan. Five seasons later, Schreiber said he feels like he's finally hitting his stride on the show.

"I was very happy to hear about [the nomination]," the 50-year-old actor told Et over the phone after the Golden Globe nominations were announced, adding that he'd hoped his onscreen wife, Paula Malcomson, would break through for her heartbreaking performance this past season. "Sad that we didn’t see Paula['s] name, but I was very grateful."

Season five broke from convention for the hourlong drama, which revolves around Ray (Schreiber), a Boston-bred fixer for the rich and famous and a devoted family man (for the most part), when Ray's wife, Abby (Malcomson), died from cancer. The way the story unfolded -- each episode was told in two different periods of Ray's life: before and after Abby's death --

'13 Reasons Why' Star Katherine Langford Reacts to Her Surprise Golden Globe Nomination
13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford is a newly minted Golden Globe nominee.

The 21-year-old Australian actress scored a surprise nomination in the Best Actress in a TV Drama Series category for her performance as Hannah Baker on the Netflix drama, and Langford shared her sweet reaction on Monday morning.

Langford will be going up against seasoned vets Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Claire Foy (The Crown), Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Deuce) and Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale).

On the film side, Sofia Coppola became the second woman ever to win the Cannes Film Festival prize for Best Director for The Beguiled, while Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird, is the best reviewed movie ever on Rotten Tomatoes. Patty JenkinsWonder Woman earned over $800 million at the worldwide box office, far surpassing the recent wave of DC Comic films.

'This Is Us' Star Chrissy Metz on the Adorable Way She Found Out About Her Golden Globe Nom (Exclusive)
Chrissy Metz learned about her Golden Globe nomination in the cutest way possible.

The This Is Us star earned her second nom in two years for her performance as Kate Pearson, and Et’s Leanne Aguilera was on the set of NBC’s hit family drama on Monday morning to celebrate Metz’s latest achievement.

Turns out, the 37-year-old actress preemptively discovered she was nominated before they were even announced. As Metz recalls, her boyfriend, Josh Stancil, dropped by her house moments before because he had a gut instinct that her name was going to be called.

“Josh called me [this morning]. He was like, ‘I’m coming over!’ I’m like, ‘Ugh, this is presumptuous, it’s not gonna happen, Josh.’ He’s like, ‘That’s not true. You always tell me you have to manifest what you want,’” Metz said. “He came over in his pajamas. I open up my laptop and then of course, [presenter] Garrett [Hedlund] was like, ‘Chrissy Metz

Kyle MacLachlan Is Having a Full-Circle 'Twin Peaks' Moment After 'Unreal' Golden Globe Nomination (Exclusive)
Kyle MacLachlanis having a full-circle moment.

The 58-year-old actor received his second Golden Globe nomination for his reprisal of Agent Dale Cooper in Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival, nearly three decades after winning the award for the character in 1991.

“It is a little unreal,” MacLachlan told Et on Monday morning after the nominations were announced. “It really points to the power of Cooper and how he resonates with so many people. Also, the fact that [creators] David Lynch and Mark Frost were able to write something so compelling -- not necessarily a nostalgic revisit of something we had seen before -- but an entirely new story with the same characters, that they were able to make it as extraordinary as they are.”

In the 18-part series, also known as Twin Peaks: The Return, MacLachlan found himself portraying three vastly different characters (the evil Mr. C, Dale Cooper and Dougie Jones), providing him the unique and rare opportunity

2018 Golden Globes Nominees - 'Disaster Artist', 'Dunkirk' + 'Get Out'

The list of nominations for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards (of 2018), the yearly precursor to the Academy Awards, have just been announced today - you can find all the film nominees below. The infamous Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees this morning from The Beverly Hilton. The selection this year is interesting, but as always it's full of some weird and confusing picks, and a few snubs (like Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele from Best Director). The top nominees are The Shape of Water with 7 noms, plus The Post and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with 6 noms each. Lady Bird and Get Out at least did get Best Film noms. Another intriguing year of picks but not that surprising for the HFPA. The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday, January 7th, 2018 at The Beverly Hilton hosted by Seth Meyers with a live telecast airing on NBC.

Fox Searchlight had a lovely Golden Globes nominations morning, notching 15 nominations as Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” continued its Critics Choice surge with seven nominations, followed by Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” with six.
