Golden Globes 2018 TV Predictions: Bold Picks in Every Category
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. The Globes could be the first, but we’re betting they won’t be able to resist David Simon’s “The Deuce” — given that all-star cast — and last year’s winner, “The Crown.” “Game of Thrones” and

Amazon Pilot Season: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

By Spencer Coile 

Each year, Amazon releases a handful of their pilot episodes for Prime members to stream. This is a unique twist on determining the worth of new series -- viewer feedback factors prominently into Amazon's pickup decisions. Recent Amazon hits such as Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, and recently The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have all weathered Amazon pilot season to become full fledged series. 

Yet while this trend is potentially on its way out the door, we were still offered a fresh batch of pilot episodes to help get us through fall of 2017: The Climb, Love You More, and Sea Oak. But which of these three (if any) have the most potential for receiving a full series pickup?...

‘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.

Revenge Thriller M.F.A. Coming to Blu-ray & DVD on November 28th from Dark Sky Films

  • DailyDead
As scary as a cabin in the woods can be, one of the most disturbing backdrops for a film can be the college campus culture, where horrors all too real take place all too often. Such is the case in Natalie Leite’s M.F.A., which made its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival (read Heather's review here) and is coming to Blu-ray and DVD soon following its October theatrical release:

Press Release: Dark Sky Films proudly announces the release date of M.F.A., a critically acclaimed powerful thriller starring Francesca Eastwood in a stand out role.

‘Coco’: Why Pixar’s Unifying Día de los Muertos Drama Is Animation Oscar Frontrunner
At a time when we need bridges instead of walls, Pixar’s “Coco” offers the best possible unification for our country, with its beautiful, musical, and heartfelt ode to Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), and will be hard to beat for the Oscar.

But above and beyond its authentic cultural trappings and fresh twist on a “Back to the Future”-like buddy comedy, “Coco” is a wondrous celebration of family and remembrance, featuring an all-Latino cast that includes “Mozart in the Jungle’s” Gael Garcia Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, and newcomer Anthony Gonzalez.

Continuing a recent Pixar trend devoted to mid-life crisis stories, “Coco” concerns 12-year-old Miguel (Gonzalez), an aspiring guitarist from a rural Mexican town, whose family of shoemakers has banned music. After borrowing the skeleton guitar of his great-great grandfather and musical icon, Ernesto de la Cruz (Bratt), Miguel gets transported to the Land of the Dead

Monica Bellucci to Receive Virna Lisi Prize in Rome

Bellucci in “Mozart in the Jungle

Monica Bellucci is set to be celebrated in Rome. The Italian actress will be honored with the 2017 Virna Lisi award as part of the Cinema Foundation for Rome’s Cityfest series, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Launched in 2015, the award is named after Lisi, “one of the rare Italian actresses who worked frequently across Italy and Hollywood,” the source writes. “She gained fame in postwar Italian film, including starring in ‘Casanova 70’ opposite Marcello Mastroianni and later appearing with Jack Lemmon in ‘How to Murder Your Wife’ and as Catherine de Medici in ‘Queen Margot.’”

Bellucci received a César nomination, France’s equivalent to an Oscar nod, in 1997 for her supporting role in “The Apartment.” “Spectre,” “The Wonders,” the “Matrix” franchise, and “Irreversible” are among her other credits.

“I had no idea when I was 25 that at 50 I would still be working. It is a great discovery for me,” Bellucci has said. She recently appeared in “Twin Peaks” and “Mozart in the Jungle.”

Bellucci will receive the award November 8.

Monica Bellucci to Receive Virna Lisi Prize in Rome was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

‘Assholes’ Director Peter Vack Made the Most Disgusting Movie Ever With ‘Recycled Amazon Money’

‘Assholes’ Director Peter Vack Made the Most Disgusting Movie Ever With ‘Recycled Amazon Money’
When Peter Vack scored a role over the summer playing Lola Kirke’s boyfriend on the Amazon series “Mozart in the Jungle,” he used the money to direct his first feature. The actor had scored in dozens of low-budget projects and directed a short film a few years earlier, but he had reason to believe nobody else was going to back his feature-length debut.

Just imagine the first sentence of the pitch,” said Vack, over lunch at Soho House. “‘It’s about two people who share an anal fetish, and I’m thinking of my sister to play the lead.’ I knew this particular endeavor was not something I’d be able to find investors for.”

The movie, by the way, was called “Assholes.” It premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, where it won the inaugural Adam Yauch Hornblower Award (a prize reserved for unique filmmaking visions); it also jolted audiences and critics alike,

‘Red Oaks’ Final Season Trailer: That Show You Weren’t Watching Is Ending

While home to one of the best shows on TV with “Transparent,” the Amazon has a lot of… other stuff. There’s “Bosch,” which your Dad probably watches between naps. There’s “Mozart In The Jungle,” which even won a Golden Globe, but we’re still not even sure what is. There is also a thing called “Patriot.” Which brings us to “Red Oaks,” which we didn’t even know was still on, but given that I don’t know a single person who ever watched an episode, it makes sense that it’s coming to an end.

‘Neo Yokio’ Voice Cast: A Visual Guide to Who Played Whom in New Netflix Animated Series
[Editor’s note: This post contains very minor spoilers for Season 1 of “Neo Yokio.”]

Netflix has a fascinating track record with animation, taking big chances especially with adult-aimed series like “BoJack Horseman” and “F Is for Family” over the last few years. Its latest venture, “Neo Yokio,” looks nothing like either of those series — instead, it draws its visual inspiration from decades of anime as it brings us into the futuristic world created by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.

What does give “Neo Yokio” something in common with its Netflix sisters is its A-list voice cast, which features an eclectic but overall critically acclaimed group of actors, including Jaden Smith as young demon hunter Kaz, who just wants to be the most eligible bachelor in town, despite the growing sense that things might not be what they seem in this society.

Who are the other famous faces behind the scenes? Below is an illustrated guide to all of Neo Yokio’s VIPs.
