Ranking the Best Golden Globes Hosts Over the Years

Ranking the Best Golden Globes Hosts Over the Years
Believe it or not, the Golden Globes having a host is a relatively new development. Since the Hollywood Foreign Press started their awards show in 1944—back then it was just about honoring film, TV came in 1957—the Golden Globes ceremony was host-less until the 1990s. In 1994, actors John Larroquette and Janine Turner became the first hosts at the 52nd annual ceremony. At the time Larroquette was starring in The John Larroquette Show, Turner was in Northern Exposure. The ceremony went back to having no host until 2010 when Ricky Gervais began his three-year stint. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler picked up the baton for 2013-2015, Gervais returned in 2016, Jimmy Fallon helmed in 2017, Seth Meyers in 2018, and Andy Samberg...

Golden Globe predictions: ‘The Crown’ will reclaim the drama series, uh, crown with an unprecedented comeback win

Golden Globe predictions: ‘The Crown’ will reclaim the drama series, uh, crown with an unprecedented comeback win
The Crown” led our Golden Globe Best Drama Series predictions through the nomination phase and that remains the same for winner picks: The Netflix series is the odds-on favorite to take home the prize, which would make it accomplish something that’s never been done before.

The Crown,” which won for its first season three years ago, would join “The X-Files” as the only shows to win drama series non-consecutively at the Globes — but “The Crown” would be the first to do it after a loss. “The X-Files” won its first Globe in January 1995 in the middle of its second season, but the Globes dropped it from the lineup the following year — as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is wont to do sometimes. It’s typically hard to return after a snub, let alone win, but “The X-Files” did just that, bagging the award the next two years. It had

The Sopranos Legacy for TV, New Jersey, and Loose Endings

Tony Sokol Nov 19, 2019

The Sopranos gave rise to the TV antihero and spelled the death of closure.

Martin Scorsese's gangster film The Irishman promises to deliver classic cinema to Netflix while the rest of the movie-going public ride marvelous theme park attractions on the big screen. David Chase is doing post-production on The Many Saints of Newark, a film prequel to the series which changed television. The Sopranos premiered on HBO on Jan. 10, 1999, immediately eclipsing the groundbreaking series Sex and the City which debuted only six months before. The crime family saga blurred the lines between cinematic and televised art. It also transformed the way people see New Jersey, a borough of Manhattan, where the show's most rabid fans gather for SopranosCon, a place where the Dimeo crime family never dies. It doesn't matter whether Tony Soprano, played by the late James Gandolfini, the head of two Jersey families,

‘The Crown’ will have to emulate ‘The X-Files’ to nab another drama series Golden Globe

‘The Crown’ will have to emulate ‘The X-Files’ to nab another drama series Golden Globe
The third season of “The Crown” hasn’t even premiered yet, but the show is currently the odds-on favorite to snatch Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes, which would mark its second victory in the category following its Season 1 win in 2017. However, it would have to defy a big Globe stat to do so.

Seven shows have won Best Drama Series more than once at the Globes, but only one of them managed to do it non-consecutively, which is what “The Crown” is attempting. On its first nomination, “The X-Files” triumphed in the middle of its second season in January 1995 and wasn’t even nominated the next year before returning to win the subsequent two years. It was a perfect 3-0 until it lost on its fourth and final nomination in 1999.

The sci-fi hit’s three wins are a category record, later matched by “Mad Men,” which bagged three

Critics Pick Their Favorite TV Doctors of All Time

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: Who is your favorite TV doctor of all time? (Doctor Who does not count.)

Damian Holbrook (@damianholbrook), TV Guide Magazine

I am not a fan of how TV usually represents doctors. They are mostly either super earnest and “I am going to save you at the risk of my career!” annoying or the “doesn’t play by the rules” rebel who rides a motorcycle down the ER hallway. Both are tired. And don’t even start me on the hard-ass doctors who obviously know everything and show it off while parading a crew of new residents through a massive hospital during the opening of soooooo many pilots. We get it: Their job is their life and they have a secret soft center.

No, I like my doctors like

‘Killing Eve’s’ Emerald Fennell could be just the 6th individual woman to take home the Best Drama Writing Emmy

‘Killing Eve’s’ Emerald Fennell could be just the 6th individual woman to take home the Best Drama Writing Emmy
Emerald Fennell replaced Phoebe Waller-Bridge as showrunner for the second season of “Killing Eve,” and now she can do what her predecessor was unable to: become just the sixth solo woman to win the Best Drama Writing Emmy.

Fennell, who will cede showrunner duties to Suzanne Heathcote for Season 3, is nominated for penning the second episode of Season 2, “Nice and Neat.” She is the only woman nominated by herself; Kira Snyder shares her nomination with Bruce Miller for “The Handmaid’s Tale.” The other nominees are Peter Gould and Thomas Schnauz (“Better Call Saul”), David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (“Game of Thrones”), Jed Mercurio (“Bodyguard”) and Jesse Armstrong (“Succession”).

First given out at the 7th Primetime Emmy Awards in 1955, Best Drama Writing has long skewed male. It took 19 years before the category crowned its first individual female champ, Joanna Lee, for “The Waltons” in 1974. Five years later, Michele Gallery (“Lou Grant”) prevailed,

One is the loneliest number: Will ‘Game of Thrones’ join ‘Mad Men’ and ‘ER’ by winning Emmy for just 1 series regular?

One is the loneliest number: Will ‘Game of Thrones’ join ‘Mad Men’ and ‘ER’ by winning Emmy for just 1 series regular?
If the Emmys love you enough to give you Best Drama Series, you’d think they’d love you enough to shower you with acting awards, especially with an ensemble cast as deep as “Game of Thrones.” Alas, only one actor has ever won for the show: Peter Dinklage. This year is the last chance for his co-stars to join him in the winner’s circle. But even if no one does, “Thrones” will be in good company. “ER” and “Mad Men” couldn’t get more than one regular cast member to the podium either.

ER” was a pop cultural juggernaut in the 1990s, and it won Best Drama Series in 1996 for its second season. When all was said and done the show ran for a whopping 15 years and picked up a slew of nominations across acting categories, but the only time a regular cast member won was in the very first season,

Billy Drago, ‘Untouchables’ Star, Dies at 73
Billy Drago, who often played harming but chilling gangster roles and appeared in Brian De Palma’s “The Untouchables” and Clint Eastwood’s “Pale Rider,” died Monday in Los Angeles of complications from a stroke. He was 73.

The character actor played Al Capone’s henchman Frank Nitti in 1987’s “The Untouchables.”

On TV series “Charmed,” he put his reptilian stare to good use as the demon Barbas in several episodes over five seasons.

Born William Eugene Burrows in Hugoton, Kan., his actor-director father was said to be of Native American origin. His mother’s family was of Romany extraction; he took their name Drago as his stage name. Starting out as a stuntman, he moved to New York and beginning his acting career.

Drago started acting in the late 1970s, appearing in films including “Cutter’s Way,” “No Other Love” and “Windwalker.” On television, he had guest roles in “Hill Street Blues,

David Schwartz (‘The Good Place’ composer): ‘Comedies are a lot more fun because you’re laughing all the time’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
The musical score of “The Good Place” has been essential to the show’s success as a show that gives the audience feelings of warmth and great tension. David Schwartz has been the NBC sitcom’s composer from the start, writing its celestial main theme and the rest of the show’s score. Schwartz, a veteran composer who has racked up three nominations at the Emmys and another at the Grammys, is heavily involved week to week in crafting “The Good Place” score. “I come in every week with the music editor, Jason Newman, the two editors, whoever’s episode it is, [Michael] Schur and a couple of the producers and we talk about first where music should go and second what it should be,” Schwartz explains. “It’s a pretty detailed conversation.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

‘Barry,’ ‘The Americans,’ and ‘The Good Place’ Among 78th Peabody Winners

The 78th Peabody Awards Board of Jurors announced its latest batch of winners on April 18, including nine Peabody 30 honorees in the Entertainment category.

Fictional murderers had a big year in 2018, with Peabody Awards going to HBO’s darkly comedic hitman-turned-actor series “Barry,” in addition to wins for BBC America’s slinky, serial killer drama “Killing Eve” and FX’s Cold War spy thriller “The Americans.”

That marks the second Peabody Award win for “The Americans,” which originally scored the honor in 2014, elevating the show to an exclusive echelon of drama series that have been honored by the organization more than once. AMC’s “Breaking Bad” accomplished the achievement most recently, for seasons in 2008 and 2013, respectively, with both “The Sopranos” and “The West Wing” earning back-to-back honors for 1999 and 2000. “Northern Exposure” also won twice, while “Homicide: Life on the Streets” is a three-time winner.

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Last Year’s Winner: Thandie Newton, “Westworld

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: In the last 20 years, there have only been three repeat winners in this category: Anna Gunn for “Breaking Bad” (2013 – 2014), Blythe Danner for “Huff” (2005 – 2006), and Allison Janney for “The West Wing” (2000 – 2001). Nancy Marchand is the only actress to win Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in three consecutive years: between 1980 and 1982 for playing Margaret Pynchon in “Lou Grant.” She also won in 1978 for the same role, which is the most of any actor ever.

Fun Fact: 2018 wasn’t the only year the Emmys nominated seven actresses in the supporting actress category. In 1992, Valerie Mahaffey (“Northern Exposure”), Mary Alice (“I’ll Fly Away”), Barbara Barrie (“Law & Order”), Conchata Ferrell (“L.A. Law”), Cynthia Geary (“Northern Exposure”), Marg Helgenberger (“China Beach”), and Kay Lenz (“Reasonable Doubts”) were all up for the Emmy, and each performer represented a broadcast network. In 2018, none were.

NBC Developing Fish-Out-of-Water Comedy Set in Alaska (Exclusive)

NBC is going north for its latest comedy project.

The network is developing a single-camera show set in Alaska, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The untitled project comes from creator Blake McCormick (Single Parents) and 20th Century Fox TV, where McCormick has an overall deal.
