Peter Dinklage needs to overcome a 23-year curse in drama supporting actor to make Emmy history

Peter Dinklage needs to overcome a 23-year curse in drama supporting actor to make Emmy history
Peter Dinklage feels like a mortal lock to take home his record-breaking fourth Best Drama Supporting Actor Emmy for “Game of Thrones,” but his victory may not be as assured if you go by recent Emmy history. If he does prevail again this year, it’d be his second straight win, but no one has been able to defend their crown in this category in 23 years.

The last person to win two drama supporting actor Emmys in a row was Ray Walston (“Picket Fences”), who triumphed in 1995 and ’96. Since then, the only people to earn multiple Emmys in this category have been Dinklage and Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”). Paul accomplished it first, winning his second trophy in 2012 to go with his 2010 one; he nabbed a third in 2014, becoming the most awarded person in this category. Dinklage tied him at three wins last year, but his were all non-consecutive as well,

Guilty by Suspicion

Movies about the blacklist aren’t common, probably because as Robert Vaughn wrote, the period produced no happy stories, ‘Only Victims.’ Robert de Niro, Annette Bening and George Wendt give a bite of immediacy to the way the blacklist upset careers and blighted lives. Few of us would like to be publicly branded an Enemy of the People, but doing so seems to be America’s number one spectator sport.

"The X-Files," Season 11, Episode 4 Recap: That’s a Mirror

  • MUBI
X-Files Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering Chris Carter's 10-episode continuation of the X-Files television series.Some late-night chatter overheard at a diner: “The world’s gone mad…” says Martin (Dan Zukovic), a man of wild stare and clammy brow. “…because Martians have invaded, but nobody seems to care!” The eatery’s owner, Buddy (Alex Diakun), tries to calm the guy down with a bit of coffee and straight talk, but Martin—convinced that these extraterrestrial invaders are using some kind of mind-erasing laser gun—isn’t having it. His paranoia is soon proven true, since Martin turns out to be one of the bulbous-headed, multi-appendage aliens and Buddy is actually Satan himself. (What a twist!) But just before the big reveal, a fearful Martin points down the counter, right at the camera—at us, the audience, watching. “There! I just saw one!” he says, “Outside through that window!

Appreciating the relaxed genius of the late James Garner

Appreciating the relaxed genius of the late James Garner
There have arguably been bigger stars in television history than the late James Garner, but none who ever made it look quite so easy. Garner, who reportedly died in his home on Saturday at the age of 86, first hit it big in 1957 with "Maverick," a comical Western in which he played Bret Maverick, a Wild West cardsharp who was as quick on the draw as he was with a quip. At a time when TV was dominated by Westerns — and very solemn ones, at that — Garner was happy to play the same material lighter, to occasionally be the clown or the guy who gets punched in the face, and yet always made it clear that Maverick could easily kill you if he wanted to — it just wasn't his preferred way of doing things. Garner left Maverick after only a few seasons (and had spent much of that time alternating episodes

Re-Enactors Get Their Own Sweet Family Movie with The Discoverers

In his debut feature, Justin Schwarz is clearly drawing from the same bag of tricks as many of his indie comedy predecessors, but he's refining them. Even his wide, Wes Anderson-ian compositions have a purpose.

Paintings are everywhere in this film about shaping history, setting up a nostalgic framework before the central characters forge out into the semi-unknown.

After the death of his mother, harried academic Lewis (Griffin Dunne) is forced to return home to Idaho with moody teens in tow. They arrive to find that grieving Grandpa Stanley (Stuart Margolin) has begun to take his "rather unhealthy Lewis and Clark obsession" to the next level. And so the disgruntled tribe sets off, period costumes and all, re-enacting the 1804 expedition with a band of history buffs in o...

Cinema Retro's DVD Round-up

  • CinemaRetro
By Lee Pfeiffer 

As Cinema Retro gets inundated with DVDs to review during the course of any given year, it's virtually impossible to keep up with all of them in a timely manner. Here are some notable titles you should be aware of:

Cabaret Blu-ray (Warner Home Video): Warner Home Video has inherited the rights to Bob Fosse's classic 1972 film adaptation of the stage production that, in turn, was based on Christopher Isherwood's Berlin Stories. The Blu-ray comes packaged in one of those irresistible hardback book formats that is loaded with wonderful photos from the movie. The movie itself holds up superbly even after 40 years. The decline of Germany's Weimar Republic amidst the rise of National Socialism in the 1930s is seen through the eyes of nightclub singer Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli) and her constant companions (Michael York, Helmut Griem) . Fosse's decision to emphasize the sleaze elements

Review: Nichols

  • Comicmix
Like most humans presently stalking the Earth, I’ve been watching teevee ever since my eyeballs could focus. Being a fanboy collector, I do my share of possessing odd and great stuff. Sadly, there were two teevee shows I absolutely worshipped that I could not find, even from collectors who obtain their DVDs through questionable means.

The first is T.H.E. Cat, Robert Loggia’s jazz-based New Orleans cat burglar private eye show. It only lasted one season, it was in black-and-white, and each episode only ran 30 minutes. So it’s half-life in syndication was roughly the same as Lawrencium. There are some truly awful bootlegs around, 12th generation dubs of a kinescope shot off of teevee set that desperately needed rabbit ears. I haven’t given up, but the challenge is undermining my otherwise natural sense of happy optimism.

The second is Nichols, the post-western western about a pacifist who

Emmys inside track: Who'll win Best Supporting Drama Actor?

Emmys inside track: Who'll win Best Supporting Drama Actor?
In the Emmy race for Best Supporting Drama Actor, there are two past champs (Aaron Paul, Peter Dinklage), two former nominees (Jonathan Banks, Jim Carter) and two men new to the category (Bobby Cannavale, Mandy Patinkin). Paul already won a pair of Emmys for "Breaking Bad" (2010, 2012), tying the record for most wins in this category along with Michael Conrad ("Hill Street Blues"), Larry Drake ("L.A. Law"), Stuart Margolin ("The Rockford Files") and Ray Walston ("Picket Fences"). Paul may be en route to his third thanks to having a curious advantage in this category -- he competes against a costar (Banks). Since Emmy judges view a sample episode submitted by each nominee, that means they see two episodes of "Breaking Bad." Paul benefits from getting extra screen time on Banks' submission and vice versa. In his episode this year, Paul has a great arc as his character Jesse decides to leave t.

An Oscar Winner Has His Day Supporting a Brilliant Woodward and a Heavily Made-Up Hoffman

Martin Balsam: Oscar winner has ‘Summer Under the Stars’ Day on Turner Classic Movies Best Supporting Actor Academy Award winner Martin Balsam (A Thousand Clowns) is Turner Classic Movies’ unusual (and welcome) "Summer Under the Stars" featured player today, August 27, 2013. Right now, TCM is showing Sidney Lumet’s The Anderson Tapes (1971), a box-office flop starring Sean Connery in his (just about) post-James Bond, pre-movie legend days. (Photo: Martin Balsam ca. early ’60s.) Next, is Joseph Sargent’s thriller The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974). Written by Peter Stone (Father Goose, Arabesque) from John Godey’s novel, the film revolves around the hijacking of a subway car in New York City. Passengers are held for ransom while police lieutenant Walter Matthau tries to handle the situation.

Most classic sci-fi movie fans should remember Westworld, but have you seen the sequel? 1976′s Futureworld will be making its Blu-ray debut, courtesy of Shout! Factory, and we have all the details:

“Do you remember that disaster at Delos a few years ago when the “Westworld” robots went out of control and killed a few guests? Well, the entire resort has now been rebuilt and redesigned to be completely fail-safe.

To combat the lingering adverse publicity, Duffy, the Delos representative, has offered the Imc Communication Network exclusive rights to the “new” Delos story. Tracy Ballard (Blythe Danner), the network’s top commentator, has been assigned the story with Chuck Browning (Peter Fonda), the newspaper reporter who broke the original “Westworld” disaster story. But as Tracy and Chuck’s private tour starts, they get the feeling the entire resort might not be as safe as Delos thinks…”

Discoverers, The | Review

Lewis (Griffin Dunne) is a history professor at a community college who has been existing at unfathomable depths below his potential for many years. We can only assume that Lewis is stuck in this demeaning position for one of two reasons: lack of confidence or to focus on his magnum opus, an exhaustive 6,000+ page book on William Clark's slave, York. Well, Lewis is about to finally get his big break. With a promising publishing deal -- albeit with a podunk academic press -- in the works, Lewis has been invited to present his research on York at a conference in Portland, Oregon. So, Lewis commences his cross-country drive to Portland with his two teenage kids -- Zoe (Madeleine Martin) and Jack (Devon Graye) -- slouched, unwillingly in his backseat. Divorced, Lewis sees this road trip as an opportunity to bond with his estranged children; at the very least, he

Title: Arbitrage Director: Nicholas Jarecki Starring: Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Brit Marling, Nate Parker, Tim Roth, Laetitia Casta, Chris Eigeman, Stuart Margolin A crisp, procedural-type throwback to 1980s-style financial world thrillers about rich men behaving badly and skirting danger, writer Nicholas Jarecki’s narrative feature directorial debut, “Arbitrage,” has the benefit of a superb, invested cast and a narrative that’s plugged into the current zeitgeist in a compelling fashion. The story of a billionaire hedge fund manager trying to broker the sale of his company ahead of the discovery of either long-simmering financial impropriety or a tawdry and possibly criminal matter from his personal life, “Arbitrage” won’t necessarily win awards for originality, but it’s a [ Read More ]

Arbitrage – The Review

The shelf life of a Hollywood leading men can sometimes be quite short. When the A-list scripts or name directors cease to call ( or return calls ) many leading men have turned to television (especially now with the quirky shows on basic cable and premium channels ). Some actors will turn to smaller supporting or character roles: the gruff father or grumpy grandpa’ parts. And then there’s Richard Gere. He emerged as a major heart-throb in the late 70′s with splashy performances in Blood Brothers and Looking For Mr. Goodbar. Of course, posters of him in American Gigolo adorned many a bedroom wall in the early 80′s. Even then he balanced these main stream flicks with quirkier fare like Days Of Heaven. Through the next decades he cemented his box office status with romantic roles in box office smashes such as An Officer And A Gentleman and Pretty Woman. But Gere
