This year, we've asked 10 writers to pick some of their favorite TV episodes from 2017 and weigh in on why they were great stand-alone eps and the highlights of our viewing year. First up: Sean T. Collins on Girls' "American Bitch."

When 2017 lies dead and buried in the ground, "Separate the art from the artist" will be chiseled on its tombstone. But what will we find in the grave?

If it's the idea that creators are shielded from scrutiny by the strength of their creations, then goodbye and good riddance.

From 'Nsync to Woody Allen: How Justin Timberlake Went from Pop Star to In-Demand Actor

How did a former ‘Nsync boy band member end up in a film with mounting Oscar buzz? Here’s a look at the 36-year-old’s evolution from singer to thespian.

Jason Mraz Finds Making His Broadway Debut in ‘Waitress’ Less Grueling Than Going on Tour (Exclusive)

Jason Mraz Finds Making His Broadway Debut in ‘Waitress’ Less Grueling Than Going on Tour (Exclusive)
“It’s a good gig,” Jason Mraz says of what he’s calling a “Broadway Retreat,” making his acting and Broadway debut as Dr. Pomatter in a 10-week limited run of Waitress on Broadway.

The singer, who officially took his first bow on Nov. 3, tells Et that eight performances a week onstage at the Brooks Atkinson Theater in New York City is “less grueling” than a typical touring schedule. “I am not leaving town or changing venues. I am not onstage for three hours singing 25 songs. Broadway, in a sense, is easier, at least currently in the role that I’m in.”

Based on the 2007 film starring Keri Russell, Waitress tells the story of Jenna Hunterson, currently played by Betsy Wolfe, a pregnant pie maker in an unhappy marriage who falls in love with her married gynecologist, Dr. Pomatter. “Suddenly this patient comes along who disarms him and has him step out of his comfort zone; a boring

15 Actors Almost Cast as Superman

15 Actors Almost Cast as Superman
"It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Sylvester Stallone?!" Christopher Reeve cast such a long shadow after his incredible portrayal of Superman it took years to get another actor into the cape. (And lookalike actor Brandon Routh's performance in Superman Returns was nothing short of homage.) But before Christopher Reeve, and in many developmental stages along the way, under the guidance of directors like Tim Burton, Brett Ratner, and McG, a handful of major movie stars came close to securing the role of DC's Last Son of Krypton. Here, we're looking at 15 actors who were almost Superman.

Paul Newman

Paul Newman, the late screen legend who starred opposite Robert Redford in the cinematic classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, among other notable roles, turned down Superman not once, not twice, but three different times. He was offered the lead role, as well as the roles of Lex Luthor and Superman's dad,

President Trump Calls Emmy Award Ratings ‘the Worst Ever’ After Multiple Jokes Were Made About Him
President Donald Trump is once again taking aim at the “rigged” Emmys — with the Leader of The Free World rejoicing over the award show’s low ratings.

Trump, 71, tweeted Tuesday night a few minutes before 11 p.m. while in New York City, writing, “I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night — the worst ever. Smartest people of them all are the “Deplorables.””

Sunday night’s Emmy Awards had ratings of 11.38 million viewers, which was almost even to last year’s all time audience low, according to Deadline.

The television industry, from Emmy presenters and nominees, to other TV industry members, helped raise funds to support their industry colleagues and friends who benefit from Mptf’s charitable programs and services such as financial assistance, crisis counseling, care giving support and of course the legendary retirement facility in Woodland Hills that is “home” to television and film veterans alike.

“The health and social service needs of our community continue to grow, especially during these last few years. The cost of delivering much-needed care can be overwhelming to Mptf’s resources, which makes events like the Evening Before more important now than ever,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg,

Emmys 2017: Everything You Didn’t See on TV

Emmys 2017: Everything You Didn’t See on TV
Sometimes, what makes Hollywood so confusing but also fascinating is how simultaneously surreal and mundane it can be, and how those two realities can coexist in such tight juxtaposition. Case in point: this year’s Emmy Awards, where one minute Sean Spicer turns up as a surprise guest on stage, eliciting a collective gasp in the audience, and the next, Keri Russell gallops into the bathroom, hiking up the hem of her dress so as not to get it dirty while waiting for an empty stall, and exclaims to nobody in particular, “Holy moly, this is nuts!”

What Russell was referring to is anybody’s guess — perhaps just the overwhelming stimuli present at any awards show — but there were a few not-televised, behind-the-scenes moments that might have been deemed “nuts” by any account.

When Spicer first popped onstage during host Stephen Colbert’s opening monologue, some Emmy guests rolled their eyes, a

Elisabeth Moss and Jon Hamm Have a Giggly Mad Men Reunion Following Her Emmy Win
What’s better than an Emmy Awards win? Celebrating that victory with an old friend, of course.

Elisabeth Moss — who took home her first Emmy on Sunday night for her role as Offred, a quiet but shrewd rebel against a horrifically patriarchal society in The Handmaid’s Tale — was the belle of the ball at the Hulu after-party. After posing for photos on the red carpet and hitting the dance floor to Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” with her TV husband O-t Fagbenle, the actress had a warm meet up with former Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm.

Emmys Review: Stephen Colbert Commits the Cardinal Sin of Hosting By Getting in the Way of All the Great Winners

Emmys Review: Stephen Colbert Commits the Cardinal Sin of Hosting By Getting in the Way of All the Great Winners
Everything started so well.

Stephen Colbert, a talented song-and-dance man, started the 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards with a charming, tightly choreographed musical number featuring an array of TV’s favorite faces. Julia Louis-Dreyfus showed up as a president who’s “not beloved by Nazis.” Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys donned wigs to joke about treason. Even Archer popped up — as Colbert slid into animated form — and made a quick, always welcome “phrasing!” joke.

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Breaks the Emmy Awards Streaming Barrier, One of Several Records Shattered This Year
The streaming TV biz passed the ultimate Emmy threshold on Sunday night, as Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” made history.

“Handmaid’s Tale” picked up the win for outstanding drama series, which represents the first time a streaming service had one won of the top Emmy series prizes. It was just four years ago, in 2013, that Netflix became the first streaming platform to win an Emmy, as “House of Cards” picked up a handful of victories.

“Streaming has arrived, and we’re here to say what a wonderful journey,” said “Handmaid’s Tale” executive producer Warren Littlefield. Added exec producer Bruce Miller: “The way Hulu handled our show, they were bold and behind us and committed to making something interesting.”

The fact that Hulu was the first to land a top Emmy series prize, rather than Netflix, is a bit surprising, as Netflix came into this year’s

Elisabeth Moss Drops Two F-Bombs After Winning First Emmy

Elisabeth Moss Drops Two F-Bombs After Winning First Emmy
After seven nominations, “The Handmaid’s Tale” star Elisabeth Moss has won her first Emmy.

And in her excitement, it looks like she may have dropped a couple of expletives. While they were muted on TV, she dropped an f-bomb as she walked up to the stage to accept her award, and then called her mother a “f—ing bada–” at the end of her speech. “You are brave and strong and smart, and you have taught me that you can be kind and f–ing bada–,” she said about her mother.

Otherwise, an out-of-breath Moss thanked Hulu and MGM, in addition to Margaret Atwood, who wrote the book on which the series is based. “Margaret Atwood, oh my gosh, thank you for what you did in 1958 and thank you for what you continue to do for all of us.”

Moss was the front-runner in the category for her tour de force performance as the subjugated Offred
