3 hours ago

A fan of Hairspray in all its myriad adaptations over the years, on stage and on screen, Hairspray Live! costume designer Mary Vogt faced new challenges when called upon to give her one take on the beloved property. With the intense and very involved choreography on display in NBC’s latest live theater production—from directors Kenny Leon and Alex Rudzinski—Vogt quickly realized that she would need costumes that could hold up under pressure.

Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Television Movie

4 hours ago

HBO tends to dominate this category, with numerous victories over the years, so there is no reason to believe that their two entries this year, The Wizard of Lies and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks aren't immediate frontrunners. But this could be a year for PBS as well in a critically uneven field of contenders that pale compared to their Limited Series counterparts. The broadcast networks long ago virtually abandoned this format, which they once championed, so the… »

Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Limited Series

5 hours ago

For six years I served on the Television Academy's Board of Governors, representing the Writers' Branch. During that time there were attempts to downplay, eliminate, or move the category once known as Miniseries, and now more broadly referred to as Limited Series. There simply weren't enough contenders, or at least enough reasonably strong contenders, to even pass the Academy's so-called "Rule of 14" that determines if there are enough candidates to trigger a… »

CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter began this morning’s program with a heads-up – “This was not a normal week so this is not a normal show” – before raising questions he conceded were usually posed off the air: Is Donald Trump a racist? Ill? Unfit to serve? Though Stelter’s questions – posed to a panel including reporter Carl Bernstein, presidential historian Douglas Brinkley and former Ted Cruz communication director Alice Stewart – weren’t as broadcast-verboten… »

No News Blackout on Total Eclipse Coverage By TV, Online Outlets

9 hours ago

Monday’s solar eclipse is a cosmically big show, and the media is giving the celestial phenomena the star treatment. The eclipse will allow everyone in the continental Us an opportunity to see at least a partial blockage of the sun by the moon, cloud cover permitting. The full 73-mile wide lunar shadow will take one hour and 33 minutes to travel from Oregon to South Carolina. If you can’t get outside to see the first Us total eclipse in nearly 40 years – or if you’re not… »

Anthony Scaramucci Signs With Hollywood PR Firm — Report

23 hours ago

Update with photo of Bragman and Scaramucci: It looks like Anthony Scaramucci has his eyes on Hollywood, or at least Hollywood assistance. After his very short stint as the White House communications director, he immediately made headlines, was the subject of numerous memes and viral videos, and made a much-talked about appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The obvious next step would be to get some representation. The Mooch has reportedly signed with… »

‘SNL’ Production Designer Eugene Lee On The Series’ “Unpresidented” Year

19 August 2017 12:00 PM, PDT

With NBC’s late-night fixture Saturday Night Live since its very first season in 1975, suffice it to say that production designer Eugene Lee has seen it all, going round and round that lofty Emmys carousel. Splitting his time between SNL and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Lee earned his 13th nomination this year for the former series. Election years at SNL are always lively and fun—Lee has worked through 11 of them—but as can be expected, the production designer… »

19 August 2017 11:04 AM, PDT

With Boston police warning rally-goers to “leave the sticks and stones at home,” the city grabbed the day’s cable news coverage for what was a largely peaceful, if uneasy, stand-off between the so-called Free Speech Rally and the vastly larger-in-number anti-racist counter-protesters at Boston Common. Despite some tense moments of riot-geared police swarming potential clashes – one such incident got simultaneous coverage on CNN, MSNBC and the Fox New Channel – the… »

Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Comedy Series

19 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT

For five consecutive years, ABC's Modern Family ruled the roost, and for the past two years it has been HBO's Veep. Emmy voters definitely like consistency in their comedy series and both these shows are back in the hunt again. In fact, other than FX's first season hit, Atlanta, the lineup is identical to last year with only Amazon's Transparent missing the cut, probably since it crossed the line a bit too often between dramatic and comedic moments. Emmy likes their… »

Emmy Predictions: Outstanding Drama Series

19 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT

In a truly remarkable, record-breaking development, no fewer than five of the seven shows nominated for Outstanding Drama Series this year are not just first timers, but series in their very first season. Part of this can be attributed to the absence of the victor of the past two years, Game of Thrones, which started to air its latest season after the eligibility window closed. But what it really points to is the extraordinary quality of this year's new output of dramas… »

19 August 2017 8:13 AM, PDT

If you had been hoping to see Norman Lear and Donald Trump face off at the Kennedy Center Honors in December, the former Celebrity Apprentice host just dashed your dreams and likely avoided a very uncomfortable confrontation of sorts.
