‘Killing Eve’ just ended a 17-year dry spell in drama actress with Emmy bids for Both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer

‘Killing Eve’ just ended a 17-year dry spell in drama actress with Emmy bids for Both Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer
Killing Eve” made a killing with Tuesday’s Primetime Emmy Awards nominations with nine total. Two of those are for Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer in Best Drama Actress, marking the first time since 2002 that a show produced double nominations in the category.

Oh, who last year became the first nominee of Asian descent in the category, and Comer are up against Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Laura Linney (“Ozark”) and Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”).

The last duo to make the cut were Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths from “Six Feet Under.” They lost to Allison Janney, who upgraded to lead that year after back-to-back wins in supporting for “The West Wing.” For the three years before that, “The Sopranos” co-stars Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco competed against each other in lead, with the former winning twice in 1999 and 2001.

‘Killing Eve’ could kill this 17-year dry spell in the Best Drama Actress Emmy category

‘Killing Eve’ could kill this 17-year dry spell in the Best Drama Actress Emmy category
Can “Killing Eve” make a killing in the Best Drama Actress Emmy race? Our early odds have Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer making the cut, which would be the first time in 17 years one show has produced two nominees in the category.

Six Feet Under” was the last show to do so, with Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths, who lost to Allison Janney (“The West Wing”). For the three years before that, “The Sopranos” stars Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco competed against each other, with the former winning twice.

The ‘90s yielded co-star nominees in 1997 (“ER’s” Julianna Margulies and Sherry Stringfield) and 1994. But it was ’80s where co-star nominees ruled since there were far fewer shows back then compared to the 500 now. “Cagney & Lacey” (Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless) and “L.A. Law” (Susan Dey and Jill Eikenberry) dominated, but others included “Dallas” (Barbara Bel Geddes and Linda Gray

‘Killing Eve’ will be first show to get 2 drama actress nominations in 16 years, Experts predict
Is “Killing Eve” going to end a 16-year long drought in Best Drama Actress? No show since 2002 has fielded two nominees in the category, but two of our Emmy Experts believe the BBC America drama can break that duck.

Robert Rorke (New York Post) and Glenn Whipp (Los Angeles Times) are predicting nominations for Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer in the tough-as-nails category. A five-time nominee for her supporting role on “Grey’s Anatomy,” Oh has risen to sixth place in our odds within the past month on the heels of “Killing Eve’s” escalating buzz and the show’s leading five Television Critics Association Awards nominations. Newcomer Comer trails in ninth place.

‘Killing Eve’ could be first show to field two Best Drama Actress Emmy nominees in 16 years
Killing Eve” could make a killing at the Emmys — specifically in Best Drama Actress. The BBC America series has two leading ladies, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, and if they both get shortlisted, the category would feature two co-stars for the first time in 16 years.

The last time a show double-dipped in Best Drama Actress was “Six Feet Under” in 2002, when Frances Conroy and Rachel Griffiths lost to Allison Janney (“The West Wing”). For the three years before that, “The Sopranos” stars Edie Falco and Lorraine Bracco faced off, with the former winning twice. The ‘90s had two more co-star pairings in 1997 (“ER”’s Julianna Margulies and Sherry Stringfield) and 1994.

Drama actress co-star nominees occurred with regularity in the ‘80s, thanks to “Cagney & Lacey” (Tyne Daly and Sharon Gless) and “L.A. Law” (Susan Dey and Jill Eikenberry). “Dallas” (Barbara Bel Geddes and Linda Gray), “Hill Street Blues” (Barbara Babcock

Raising Caine on TCM: From Smooth Gay Villain to Tough Guy in 'Best British Film Ever'

Michael Caine young. Michael Caine movies: From Irwin Allen bombs to Woody Allen classic It's hard to believe that Michael Caine has been around making movies for nearly six decades. No wonder he's had time to appear – in roles big and small and tiny – in more than 120 films, ranging from unwatchable stuff like the Sylvester Stallone soccer flick Victory and Michael Ritchie's adventure flick The Island to Brian G. Hutton's X, Y and Zee, Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Sleuth (a duel of wits and acting styles with Laurence Olivier), and Alfonso Cuarón's Children of Men. (See TCM's Michael Caine movie schedule further below.) Throughout his long, long career, Caine has played heroes and villains and everything in between. Sometimes, in his worst vehicles, he has floundered along with everybody else. At other times, he was the best element in otherwise disappointing fare, e.g., Philip Kaufman's Quills.

From 'Traitor' to Screen Legend: Fonda Still Busy on the Big Screen

Jane Fonda: From ‘Vietnam Traitor’ to AFI Award and Screen Legend status (photo: Jason Bateman and Jane Fonda in ‘This Is Where I Leave You’) (See previous post: “Jane Fonda Movies: Anti-Establishment Heroine.”) Turner Classic Movies will also be showing the 2014 AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony honoring Jane Fonda, the former “Vietnam Traitor” and Barbarella-style sex kitten who has become a living American screen legend (and healthy-living guru). Believe it or not, Fonda, who still looks disarmingly great, will be turning 77 years old next December 21; she’s actually older than her father Henry Fonda was while playing Katharine Hepburn’s ailing husband in Mark Rydell’s On Golden Pond. (Henry Fonda died at age 77 in August 1982.) Jane Fonda movies in 2014 and 2015 Following a 15-year absence (mostly during the time she was married to media mogul Ted Turner), Jane Fonda resumed her film acting career in 2005, playing Jennifer Lopez

DVD Review: "Beyond The Poseidon Adventure" (1979) Starring Michael Caine, Sally Field And Telly Savalas

  • CinemaRetro
By Lee Pfeiffer

Seven years after his blockbuster success producing the 1972 film The Poseidon Adventure, Irwin Allen revisited the same story for a sequel, Beyond the Poseidon Adventure. The 1979 film represents all the reasons that sequels to most hit films are generally disdained. Yes, there was The Godfather trilogy to buck the trend, but there were also those God-awful sequels to Jaws. Beyond the Poseidon Adventure opens the morning after the capsizing of the cruise ship. Michael Caine is Mike Turner, the financially destitute captain of a small vessel who is facing bankruptcy after losing his cargo in the same violent storm that destroyed the Poseidon. On board his boat are his first mate Wilbur (Karl Malden) and Celeste Whitman (Sally Field), a perky but klutzy young drifter the men have befriended. They stumble upon the capsized wreck of the Poseidon and Turner immediately smells financial opportunity in the tragedy.

Review: 'Hill Street Blues: The Complete Series' on DVD

Review: 'Hill Street Blues: The Complete Series' on DVD
Late in the DVD commentary for the pilot episode of "Hill Street Blues," actor Joe Spano marvels at the show's impact on the medium. "It's extraordinary," he says, "the repercussions of this 48 minutes of television." The cop drama's co-creator Steven Bochco follows by suggesting, "It's sort of a family tree, and if you look at the branches of the tree, you'll see 25 years of television." Bochco is, if anything, underselling the importance of "Hill Street," which is on the short list of the most influential TV shows ever made. Whether through shared actors, writers, directors or through stylistic and thematic complexity, its DNA can be found in nearly every great drama produced in the 30-plus years since it debuted. The show was only occasionally interested in the legal trials of the criminals in its unnamed fictional city, but the complete series DVD set (it arrives in stores on Tuesday, for

Lost: Lighthouse Recap

  • Pajiba
This week's "Lost," entitled "Lighthouse," was about as solid as a transitional episode could be for this final season. Every episode will likely provide answers or clues about major mysteries (actually, every episode has answers, it's just that they raise more questions, which irks some people but is kind of just the way life goes, kid), and if last week's "The Substitute" was a chance to really dig deeper into the Locke/Enemy story, this week's episode was a chance to push the pieces forward a little with the remaining survivors spread across the island. Plus we got to see Claire go wolfshit insane. Not a bad little hour of TV.

Photos – Lost 6.05 "Lighthouse"

Still trying to wrap your head around this week's new episode of Lost? Trying to figure out who might be a candidate in that cave of names? We've already posted two sneak peeks for the February 23 new episode of Lost, which is a Jack Shephard-centric episode (check out sneak peek #1 and sneak peek #2, if you're into that sort of thing) and now ABC has released a very short synopsis and promo photos for the same episode. View those below.

You can also re-watch episodes from season 6 on the ABC website with commentary from actors and crew for the show. Read more details here.

Sneak Peek #2 – Lost 6.05 "Lighthouse"

Late last night we posted a sneak peek from the February 23 new episode of Lost, which is shaping up to be a Jack-centric episode. ABC has released a second sneak peek, along with a very short synopsis, which you can view below. Mama Shephard's back in action! Oh, and for those who haven't seen it, I've thrown in the promo for the episode as well.

Unsolicited advice: don't watch Supernatural if you also watch Lost. You'll never believe Jacob is a good guy if you also watch Mark Pellegrino play Lucifer on Supernatural. This is freaking me out.

[TV] Lost Connections: Five Years of Guest Stars

If you're a Lost fanatic like me, you were likely as glued to the television screen as I was last Tuesday night when the final season of this magnificent sci-fi show premiered. Like many of you, I was scratching my head as to what the hell the writers are up to for this season, and was rabidly speculating theories with my friends.

Amidst the brain melting scrutinizing, however, I found the time to geek out over two guest stars I love: the always likable John Hawkes (Deadwood, Eastbound & Down) and Japanese badass Hiroyuki Sanada (Ring, The Twilight Samurai, Sunshine).

Over the years, many recognizable actors have stopped by to do guest spots on the show, to compliment the already spectacular regular cast. While revisiting all five previous seasons of Lost in anticipation of the sixth and last season, I made a point to note all the known guest stars I spotted.
