‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Will Address Its Race Issues, But Will Stick by Its Controversial Soundtrack Choices

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 2 Will Address Its Race Issues, But Will Stick by Its Controversial Soundtrack Choices
“The Handmaid’s Tale” showrunner Bruce Miller knows the show triggered “thousands of discussions” in its inaugural run — and as production continues on Season 2, Miller said he and his team have been paying attention to those conversations.

One major issue for the Emmy-winning Hulu series — nominated Monday for three Golden Globes — was that how to approach racial issues. While Margaret Atwood’s original novel took place in an all-white world (due to the ethnic purging orchestrated by the nightmare nation of Gilead), Miller and Atwood ended up making the decision to incorporate a diverse cast and focus on the treatment of women within this society.

“There was discussion and praise and criticism for how we integrated or dealt with race in Gilead,” he said. “It brought up a lot of questions that just didn’t come up in the stories in Season 1, that we were able to put it in

Black List 2017 Features Record Number of Scripts By and About Women

Christy Hall’s “Daddio” made the list: Hall’s official site

If the 2017 Black List is any indication — and hopefully it is — we’re going to see more films written by women going into production soon. And more female-led stories, too. Compiled by tallying the votes of over 275 film executives, the famous list recognizes the best film scripts that haven’t begun principal photography during this year. “The big takeaway from this year’s list is that women are more present on the list then ever, both in the stories that are being told and the screenwriters who are telling them,” TheWrap writes.

More specifically, 25 of the 76 works featured this year are written or co-written by women, and 34 scripts center on female protagonists. According to the source, that’s “a record for both categories.”

Each Hollywood exec who participated in the Black List contributed the names of up to 10 favorite scripts.

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

75th Golden Globe Nominations – In An Industry Of Snubs It’s Hard To Stand Out

Award season is a world of snub, complaints, and second-guessing, but the recent announcement of The Golden Globe nominations already has people talking, and tweeting. Among the most noteworthy misses, in a year when the nominations are mostly academic, is The Big Sick and Wonder Woman, both of which got no attention at all from The Golden Globe Awards.

Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.

Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.

'13 Reasons Why' Star Katherine Langford Reacts to Her Surprise Golden Globe Nomination

'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.

“Thank you so much to the HFPA!” Langford posted in an Instagram story. “So excited to be nominated alongside this illustrious group of women.”

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).

Langford’s nomination was one of several big surprises for this year’s Golden Globe nominations, as the series -- which will return for a sophomore run -- was bypassed by many of the major awards shows, including this year’s Emmys.

Many of Langford’s co-stars took to Twitter to celebrate her nomination, including Dylan Minnette, [link

’13 Reasons Why’ Snags a Surprise Golden Globes Nomination Amidst Controversy for Its Treatment of Suicide

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from the first season of “13 Reasons Why.”]

The teen drama “13 Reasons Why” sparked plenty of controversy when Netflix released it in March, but the Hollywood Foreign Press Association saw fit to give it a nod on Monday. It’s a show that’s all but been forgotten and didn’t really show up on many critical prediction lists. Although the series overall didn’t get recognition, its star Katherine Langford snagged the nomination in the Best Actress in a Drama Series category.

“Words cannot express my sheer excitement and gratitude for being nominated by the HFPA this morning for portraying ‘Hannah Baker,’ a young woman whom I have come to truly love and understand,” Langford said in a statement. “Hannah’s story resonated with so many people, and I feel truly grateful to Netflix, Paramount TV, Brian Yorkey, Tom McCarthy, Selena Gomez, and all of our tremendous producers…and to our incredibly talented cast – who are also my dear friends,

Golden Globe Nominations Are In, and Once Again Women Directors Are Shut Out

Lady Bird capturing our feelings well (“Lady Bird”)

Lady Bird” is officially the best-reviewed film ever on Rotten Tomatoes. The coming-of-age dramedy has been scoring award after award, giving many hope that writer-director Greta Gerwig would be a shoo-in come Golden Globe and Oscar time. Well, Golden Globe nominations are in, and Gerwig scored a nod for Best Screenplay and “Lady Bird” is up for Best Picture — Comedy or Musical, but once again the Best Director category is composed entirely of men. No Gerwig. No Dee Rees for “Mudbound.” No Patty Jenkins for “Wonder Woman.”

Fortunately, female filmmakers fared better in the Best Animated Film category, which is noteworthy because women are especially underrepresented in that field. Two of five films in the running are women-directed or co-directed: Nora Twomey’s “The Breadwinner,” the story of a girl who cuts her hair and disguises herself as a boy so she

Cannes Palme d’Or winner “The Square,” directed by Ruben Ostlund, scooped the best European film, comedy, script, director, and actor prizes at the 30th European Film Awards ceremony, which took place Saturday night in Berlin.

“We wanted to say something important, but we also wanted it to be entertaining and exciting – I think it’s part of a European approach,” said Ostlund upon receiving the prize for best European comedy. The provocative Swedish helmer cited “Toni Erdmann,” last year’s big winner at the European Film Awards, as another film that uses comedy to say something meaningful about humankind and society.

Robin Campillo’s critically acclaimed “Bpm (Beats Per Minute),” the winner of Cannes’ Grand Jury Prize, took home best editing out of several nominations.

Alexandra Borbely (“On Body and Soul”) won best actress, beating out French stars Isabelle Huppert (“Happy End”) and Juliette Binoche (“Bright Sunshine In”), as well as Florence Pugh (“Lady Macbeth”) and
