The “Big Little Lies” nomination haul comes just days after HBO confirmed that a second season of the show is now in the works. Behind it is FX’s “Feud: Bette & Joan,” which has four nods; then Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and FX’s “Fargo,” with three apiece. Beyond that, the Hollywood Foreign Press spread the nomination love around, with many of TV’s most acclaimed shows receiving just one or two nominations. It’s the end result of the Peak TV era: With such a robust and eclectic offering of scripted TV shows from multiple outlets, HFPA voters opted to honor as many shows as possible.

Best Drama Series “The Crown” “The Deuce” “The Handmaid’s Tale” “Game of Thrones” “Stranger Things

Spoiler: “This Is Us

Since the above predictions feature three returning series and a virtual lock in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” there’s a lot of room for spoilers. Not only could “This Is Us” very easily land its second straight nod for Best Drama Series, but series like “Mindhunter,” “The Good Doctor,” “Ozark,” “Mr. Robot,” “Better Call Saul,” and, yes, even “The Leftovers” could find their way into the final five. The Golden Globes like spotlighting new series, which benefits shows like “Mindhunter” and “Ozark” which haven’t been crowned by other awards shows just yet.

Dramedy In Motion: Blending Genre With ‘Atlanta’

By Jacob Oller

Donald Glover makes genre collisions look easy. ometimes the meshing of genres is an inevitable development of a show over time. It’s how Game of Thrones became much more military over the years and how Parks and Recreation abandoned much of its mockumentary trappings in favor of relatively straight-forward rom-com fun. A show that’s nailed […]

First Solo: A Star Wars Story teaser poster surfaces

While director Ron Howard delivered regular social media updates and teases from the set of the film, we’ve had very little in the way of marketing material for next year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, save for the official title and logo reveal back in October.

Obviously Disney and Lucasfilm are focussing their marketing efforts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi at present, but things may be about to change as the first teaser poster for Solo has now been spotted in theaters. It’s just the film’s logo, so nothing to get too excited about, but it may indicate that the first trailer could be just around the corner (and presumably puts to rest any speculation that the movie could be pushed back from its May release date following the director shake-up and extensive reshoots)…

‘Ozark,’ ‘Smilf,’ and 5 More Shows That Could Really Benefit from an Awards Boost

‘Ozark,’ ‘Smilf,’ and 5 More Shows That Could Really Benefit from an Awards Boost
Whether or not award shows like the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards have an immediate impact on viewership, a strong night at either (or both) can drastically affect the future of a series. Low-rated shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Mozart in the Jungle,” or even “30 Rock” and “Arrested Development,” may not have earned follow-up seasons without the repeated embrace of the HFPA, SAG, and other appreciative awards shows that boosted their profile (and their respective networks’).

What matters, in the end, is more seasons; more work; more of what at least someone considers to be TV’s best of the best. The fact that a golden sphere on top of a podium or a bronze statue of a performer can contribute to talented creators continuing their passion projects is pretty special.

No Lando in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, according to director Rian Johnson

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens feeling like a reunion, of sorts, with the series’ iconic characters, it’s natural to hope for even more cameos in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and one such character is Lando Calrissian.

Given the character’s upcoming appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story, played by Donald Glover, it feels like a great time to catch up with Billy Dee Williams smooth talking smuggler. Well, for those hoping to see Lando in the upcoming film, prepared to be disappointed.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is mincing no words on the potential of Lando making an appearance:

“No, and I don’t want fans to get their hopes up. He’s not in the film, and it was never really something that came up. I mean, I loved that character. It would have been fun to see him, but

Why Lando Doesn't Return in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Why Lando Doesn't Return in Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Where the heck is Lando? Bad news, Star Wars fans. Director Rian Johnson has confirmed that Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian will not appear in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The actor said as much during this year's Star Wars Celebration in April, but this puts the final nail in the coffin. Though, Johnson's reasoning is hard to argue against. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.

"No, and I don't want fans to get their hopes up. He's not in the film and it was never really something that came up. I mean, I loved that character. It would have been fun to see him, but it's just not something that ever really had a place in the story."

At least Rian Johnson isn't being cagey about it. Even though Billy Dee Williams said he wasn't in the movie, that was back in April.
