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.

HBO’s 2018 Preview Includes A Sliver Of Footage From Westworld Season 2

With Game of Thrones now on the back-burner until 2019, all eyes are beginning to turn toward HBO’s other big-budget drama in anticipation of season 2.

We are, of course, referring to Westworld, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s whip-smart adaptation of the 1973 cult movie classic. Initially released in October of 2016, the HBO genre mash-up – Westworld fused sci-fi and Western drama together like few others have – blindsided TV critics with a smart, deftly crafted story of high-paying tourists and their robotic hosts.

Dig beneath the show’s immaculate surface, though, and you’ll begin to uncover a taut thriller that touched on many of the genre’s biggest themes – namely artificial intelligence and its ensuing moral dilemmas – so it’s small wonder why Westworld was given the go-ahead for a 10-episode second season while the first season was still on air.

Story details are still few and far between, of course,

There's a Familiar Face in This Upcoming Black Mirror Episode

Image Source: Netflix Black Mirror will debut its fourth season shortly on Netflix, and one of the episodes already generating a lot of buzz is "USS Callister." The sci-fi episode pays homage to (or perhaps straight-up parodies) the original Star Trek TV series. Jesse Plemons (Fargo, Friday Night Lights) stars as Captain Daly, doing a solid tribute to William Shatner without going over the top. Daly's right-hand man is Walton, whom TV fans will definitely recognize from a variety of shows. Walton is played by Jimmi Simpson, whose most recent noteworthy credit is Westworld. In case you haven't watched the first season, we won't spoil his storyline for you, but generally he's a first-time visitor to Westworld who gets sucked into the deeper meaning of the park's story. Image Source: HBO Before Westworld, Simpson could be seen as computer hacker Gavin Orsay on Netflix's House of Cards and on A&E's short-lived Prison Break pseudo-spinoff,

This Is Why Westworld's Thandie Newton Hates Being Told 'You Look Good For Your Age'
The next time someone gives Thandie Newton a backhanded compliment like, “You look good for your age,” she wants them to consider how much women are expected to balance.

“For women over 30, there’s the addition of children and the stress of holding down a job, and most people don’t have help,” the Westworld actress, 45, tells Refinery29. “They grit the teeth with their mother-in-law, support their husband, and deal with misogyny. That’s a lot of stuff.”

The mom of two has a new idea for what people should be saying.

Los Angeles Fires Stop TV Productions, Close Freeways, and Threaten Homes
Blazes in Southern California are currently wreaking havoc on the film and television community. The 405 Freeway has been partly shut down due to a brush fire that started last night and now encompasses 50 acres, per the Los Angeles Fire Department. That fire endangers the famed Getty and Skirball Cultural Centers; according to Bloomberg, Rupert Murdoch’s Bel Air estate is among those that fall within the evacuation zone.

These are in addition to four active fires reported yesterday in the counties of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Ventura, plus one in Santa Clarita that raged across tens of thousands of acres, with the Ventura fire requiring 27,000 residents to evacuate.

Bleak New Trailer For Black Mirror Season 4 Confirms December Premiere

The fourth season of Black Mirror is only three weeks away.

That’s the news coming out of Netflix this afternoon, after the online giant confirmed that six new episodes – six bleak, technology-driven nightmares – will be available to consume from December 29th. A suitably chilling trailer accompanied today’s media dump (see above), which cuts between each new chapter in Charlie Brooker’s Emmy-winning anthology series.

From the Jodie Foster-directed “Arkangel” to “Metalhead,” the show’s first ever black-and-white episode (see below), Black Mirror season 4 looks set to deliver another dose of unmissable drama. It’s vintage Brooker, too: happiness is fleeting and, supposedly, everything happens for a reason. Other instalments include “Crocodile,” “Hang the DJ,” “Black Museum,” and the Star Trek-inspired “USS Callister,” which stars Jesse Plemons and Jimmi Simpson of Fargo and Westworld, respectively.

'Westworld' Shuts Down Production Due to Massive California Wildfires, Cast Members React
The fast-moving Southern California wildfires on Tuesday have affected filming on HBO's Westworld, Et has learned.

The show is currently in production on season two, which is expected to premiere sometime in 2018. In a statement on Tuesday, a rep for HBO confirmed the shutdown.

“Due to nearby wildfires, Westworld stopped production earlier today and will resume filming as soon as it’s safe to do so," the statement reads.

Thousands of Southern Californians fled their homes Tuesday as a massive brush fire spread through parts of Ventura County. The fires have been largely fueled by strong Santa Ana winds, which are expected to last until Thursday. CNN reports that the fire had grown to 50,000 acres by Tuesday afternoon.

Actor Jeffrey Wright tweeted about the fires on Tuesday.

"Got an unexpected and unfortunate day off owing to the #CreekFire & #RyeFire," he wrote. "Be safe, folks."

First Solo: A Star Wars Story teaser poster surfaces

While director Ron Howard delivered regular social media updates and teases from the set of the film, we’ve had very little in the way of marketing material for next year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, save for the official title and logo reveal back in October.

Obviously Disney and Lucasfilm are focussing their marketing efforts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi at present, but things may be about to change as the first teaser poster for Solo has now been spotted in theaters. It’s just the film’s logo, so nothing to get too excited about, but it may indicate that the first trailer could be just around the corner (and presumably puts to rest any speculation that the movie could be pushed back from its May release date following the director shake-up and extensive reshoots)…
