Will ‘Killing Eve’ star Jodie Comer be the latest to snatch an Emmy bid for a sophomore season after a snub?

BBC America’s “Killing Eve” netted two Primetime Emmy Award nominations last year, one for Sandra Oh in Best Drama Actress and the other for Phoebe Waller-Bridge in Best Drama Writing. The show’s second season, which is currently airing, is expected to nab nods across the board, including one for Oh’s co-star Jodie Comer, who is currently in fourth place in our combined Emmy odds.

Comer would be the most recent actor to turn a first-season snub into a nomination for the second one. Recent examples include:

1. Zazie Beetz – Best Comedy Supporting Actress for “Atlanta” (2018)

2. Joseph Fiennes – Best Drama Supporting Actor for “The Handmaid’s Tale” (2018)

3. Ed Harris – Best Drama Actor for “Westworld” (2018)

4. Brian Tyree Henry – Best Comedy Supporting Actor for “Atlanta” (2018)

5. Vanessa Kirby – Best Drama Supporting Actress for “The Crown” (2018)

6. Matt Smith – Best Drama Supporting Actor for “The Crown” (2018)

The Shape-Shifting Zazie Beetz

The Shape-Shifting Zazie Beetz
‘I still feel young and small in a big, big world,” says Zazie Beetz. “My inner self sometimes feels in danger of being exposed.” Exposure is certainly a risk if your career moves as quickly as Beetz’s has. As Van, the on-off girlfriend of Donald Glover’s Earn on Atlanta, Beetz, 27, is a grounding presence in a sea of surreal turns. Her performance, infused with intelligence and vulnerability, has earned her an Emmy nomination — even though the role was initially designed to be more limited. Beetz has pushed behind

2019 Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series Emmys Predictions

There is genuine drama in the Emmy race for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for two reasons. First, last year because of the Television Academy’s voting formula there were eight nominees instead of the expected seven. Even with “Atlanta’s” Zazie Beetz ineligible this year, it makes things very competitive. Moreover, Alex Bornstein, who was a somewhat surprising winner for “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” last year, now is likely trying to repeat against two-time winner Kate McKinnon.

The Twilight Zone Revival Renewed For Season 2

I’ve got some great news for those of you who are fans of Jordan Peele’s revival of The Twilight Zone. CBS All Access has renewed it for a second season!

While the series isn’t as good as the original, it’s still a solid show worth watching. I’ve been enjoying the stories that it’s told and I’ve also liked how some of the original episodes of the series have been reimagined for this revival. They don’t feel like complete remakes, which is good.

Season 1 of the series only consists of 10 episodes and this week, episode 6 will air. I think it would be great to see Season 2 get a bigger number of episodes. The original series was getting over 30 episodes a season! I don’t think we’ll ever see that kind of episode count again in any kind of TV series.

Oscars 2020: Best Actress Predictions

Oscars 2020: Best Actress Predictions
It’s early, but the time has come to lay the groundwork for the 2020 Oscars, which hit the calendar earlier than usual. Nominations are January 13, and the Oscar show is February 9.

This year’s returning Oscar contenders include Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”), Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”), Anne Hathaway (“Les Miserables”), and Charlize Theron (“Monster”).

Newcomers include Sundance breakout Awkwafina, star of Lulu Wang’s true-story family dramedy “The Farewell” (July 12) which A24 acquired for $6 million for the world (outside China). Shot in English and Mandarin and showcasing the acting chops of the “Crazy Rich Asians” star, “The Farewell” (Metascore: 87) will test the ceiling in North American for a foreign-language indie (American movies are not eligible for the foreign-language Oscar). Visibility will be key to this movie’s Oscar chances.

Neon acquired another Sundance breakout, writer-director Chinonye Chukwu’s prison drama “Clemency” starring Woodard as a prison warden under duress.

‘Easy’ Season 3 Trailer: Joe Swanberg’s Netflix Comedy Sets Up a Star-Studded Swan Song — Exclusive
As episodic anthologies continue to thrive, one of the early adopters is saying goodbye. Joe Swanberg’s Netflix comedy series tracks the ever-evolving love lives of Chicago residents from the Loop to Logan Square, but Season 3 of “Easy” will be its last.

“The support, flexibility, and trust that Netflix provided, combined with their global reach, made this a completely unique experiment,” Swanberg said in a statement. “The fact that I was able to collaborate with so many of my favorite actors took an already dreamy experience to the next level. I couldn’t be more proud of the new season, and I can’t wait to share it.”

Behind the series’ early appeal was its cast, and plenty of favorites are returning for the final run. Elizabeth Reaser (“The Haunting of Hill House”) and Michael Chernus (“Orange is the New Black”) continue exploring the joys and pains of an open

Fox Settles With Family Of ‘Deadpool 2’ Stunt Woman Killed In 2017 On-Set Accident

  • Deadline
20th Century Fox has reportedly settled out of court with the family of Joi Harris, the motorcycle stunt woman who was killed in 2017 during the production of Deadpool 2 in Vancouver after an accident on the set riding a high-powered Ducati motorcycle.

The settlement, for an undisclosed amount, is to be made available to the family following the case’s path via New York probate court, which is where Harris lived.

The Hollywood Reporter had the news first Thursday, speaking with the Florida attorney Michael Buckley, who repped the family.

Harris was the first African-American female professional road racer. She was doing her first film as a stunt performer on Deadpool 2, Deadline reported at the time.

Witnesses said the crew was filming a stunt sequence when Harris lost control of her motorcycle and crashed through a plate-glass window at Shaw Tower on West Waterfront Road near Jack Poole Plaza.

Cannes: Directors’ Fortnight Flashes Rebel Spirit By Selecting Netflix Pic ‘Wounds’, Risking Wrath Of Local Exhibitors

  • Deadline
The Directors’ Fortnight, which runs parallel to the Cannes Film Festival, has flashed its rebel spirit by selecting Netflix film Wounds among its lineup.

Doing so could potentially rile local exhibitors who kicked up such a fuss the last time Cannes played Netflix films in Competition that the festival had to ban the streamer from competing for the Palme d’Or in future editions. Cannes says its Netflix ban is in place to protect the theatrical window.

The non-competitive Directors’ Fortnight section sits outside the parameters of the festival and is organized by the French Directors’ Guild. It prides itself on its “freedom of thinking” but inevitably it is also closely associated with the festival.

Will Joker Follow the Villain's Comic Book Backstory? Well, It's Complicated

  • Popsugar
Image Source: Warner Bros.

With Joker coming out this year, we're excited to see how director Todd Phillips will flesh out the iconic character in his first stand-alone origin story - partly because the point of the Joker is that he doesn't really have an origin. Not knowing quite how he became a murderous psychopath preserves his status as a terrifying figure; he's the incarnation of chaos. Having said that, Phillips didn't have a shortage of comic sources from which to draw inspiration. Given that the Joker came about in the '40s and is one of the first comic book supervillains ever, it's inevitable that writers would explore his history. If you're curious about how Joaquin Phoenix's portrayal aligns with past comics about Batman's foe, keep reading!
