The Best TV Performances of 2017

The Best TV Performances of 2017
It’s virtually impossible to limit year-end lists to 10 or 20 shows, so it’s literally impossible to include all the great performances from 2017 on one list. But IndieWire has done our best, wading through the hundreds of award-worthy turns from veteran actors and TV newbies to find the best performances this year.

These actors accomplished something special: They elevated their shows even when it seemed like the series couldn’t go any higher. They found surprising depths within the writers’ words and surprised directors with keen insights into their characters. They made us laugh, cry, jump for joy, and scream in frustration. Their precision in understanding who they played helped evoke passion in the audience watching.

Owen Gleiberman’s 10 Best Films of 2017

Owen Gleiberman’s 10 Best Films of 2017
Earlier this year, as winter was doing its slow fade, something happened in the world of movies you don’t see too often: A film arrived out of nowhere to become a fast-break phenomenon, lionized by critics and flocked to by audiences. I’m talking about Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” (#2 on my 10 Best list), which was made on a tiny budget ($4.5 million!) but became, virtually overnight, a seismic pop-cultural event.

For a moment or two, a movie owned not just the multiplexes but the conversation. It was thrilled to, talked about, granted the hot-potato status of a sociological wake-up call. For a moment, the concept of “niche culture” felt like it was being left in the dust. Something similar happened six months later, in the middle of the summer, when Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” (which didn’t make my list — to me, it was an awesome spectacle but too remote) rode a veritable tidal wave of

Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

Golden Globes Nominations: 21 Biggest Snubs and Surprises
On Monday morning, the Golden Globes reinforced the notion that Hollywood is still a boy’s club. The organization, made up of about 90 foreign journalists, seemed to go out on a limb not to nominate a single woman for best director. Not Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”). Not Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”). Not Dee Rees (“Mudbound”).

Although 2017 has been called the year of the woman, the Globes managed to overlook two of the biggest female-led hits of the year: “Beauty and the Beast,” the most successful movie of 2017 so far, was snubbed in the musical/comedy category, and “Wonder Woman” was shut out for any awards. Other surprises: Jordan Peele didn’t get a nomination for writing or directing “Get Out,” although his movie did receive two nominations (for best picture and actor).

Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” a love story between a lonely woman and a monster, led all movies with seven nominations.

Matt Shakman direct The Phantom Tollbooth

Last August it was announced that TriStar Pictures was developing an adaptation of the classic children’s book The Phantom Tollbooth, and now Deadline is reporting that the studio has enlisted Matt Shakman (Game of Thrones, Fargo) to direct the project.

The tollbooth transports him to a land called the Kingdom of Wisdom, where he acquires two faithful companions, has many adventures, and goes on a quest to rescue the princesses of the kingdom from a castle in the air.”

The Phantom Tollbooth has been scripted by Michael Vukadinovic (Rememory) and Phil Johnston (Wreck-It Ralph 2), and has Donald De Line and Ed McDonnell producing.

Where You've Seen This Actress Before Her Black Mirror Episode

Image Source: Netflix Get ready for a wild ride when Black Mirror returns with its fourth season. One of the best episodes is "USS Callister," a parody of the original Star Trek . . . with a Black Mirror twist, of course. The hero of the piece is a woman named Nanette Cole, who may look like a tiny, wide-eyed ingenue, but is actually a brilliant badass, played by the wonderful Cristin Milioti. The actress is perhaps best known for playing the titular mother on CBS's long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother. She became so popular with viewers that her storyline was be a big part of why fans were so unhappy with the final season and series finale episode.

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,

David Lynch, Jordan Peele, Tiffany Haddish, and More Creators Tell IndieWire What Drove Them in 2017
Words have always had great power, but over the course of the last year — a one of massive change and upheaval in Hollywood and the rest of the world — that old chestnut has never seemed more prescient. 2017 saw the rise of believing those who speak out, even if it hurts to hear, and plenty of the industry’s biggest voices had plenty to say. We talk to a lot of Hollywood’s brightest talents, about the projects which have inspired them most and the industry which at times supports, and at times hinders, their efforts to make their best work.

As individuals, we’re often blown away by their insights; in gathering them together, we end up with a portrait of a community of artists and creators who love their art and their industry, for better and for worse, and refuse to keep quiet about it.

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.
