Ann Dowd on Her First Golden Globe Nomination and the
"F—k no," Ann Dowd said. The Handmaid's Tale star was not waiting to see if her name was called during the announcement of the 2018 Golden Globe nominations.

The comedy race, in particularly, has been upended from the Globes of recent memory.

Golden Globe Nominations 2017

by Nathaniel R

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has reached its diamond anniversary. Alfre Woodard and Sharon Stone announced the nominations. Here are the Globe nominations in all their glory and folly (it's always a combo of the two with any awards body... though people tend to be harsher on the Globes in this perception matter). The biggest surprise was the big love for Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World (which no other awards group had screened to date) but the Golden Globes do like to be first as is always evident in their TV nominations which are generally quite favorable to new series (note the love for The Handmaid's Tale, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, and more). As is also their habit they embraced a musical for their comedy/musical category giving a Best Picture nomination to The Greatest Showman

The Marketing Mavens Behind Pennywise and the 'It' Red Balloon, 'Handmaid's Tale' Stunts and More

Hollywood's marketing wars are fiercer than ever thanks to the proliferation of content. Movie studios still wage the richest campaigns — think $150 million or more for a tentpole — but television networks are stepping up their efforts to combat the likes of Netflix and Hulu, whose on-the-ground stunt for The Handmaid's Tale made global headlines. Warner Bros.' marketing machine, led by Sue Kroll, made a huge comeback in 2017 with Dunkirk and the horror blockbuster It. In regard to budgets, more is being spent on digital, but television ads remain a necessary evil. "Budgets have shifted to new platforms,"...

  • BuzzSugar
Netflix dropped a new drama in early November titled Alias Grace, based on the 1996 novel by Margaret Atwood, who also wrote The Handmaid's Tale.

Read on to find out, but be warned of spoilers for the Netflix series. On the show (as in the novel), 33-year-old Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon) is in prison for the double murder of her employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper and lover, Nancy. At the time of the murders, Grace works as a maid for Kinnear, and her alleged accomplice in the crimes, James McDermott, is the estate's stable boy.

It's Official: The Handmaid's Tale Season 2 Has a Premiere Date

We're officially one step closer to an exact premiere date for The Handmaid's Tale's second season. This week, Hulu set premiere dates for its 2018 lineup, announcing an April 2018 release for the Emmy Award darling. An exact date is still Tbd, but at least this means we're less than six months away from our return to Gilead. We have a few ideas about what will happen next time around, but seeing as it's burned through a ton of the source material and ended on a truly devastating cliffhanger, we can likely expect even more departures from the book as we move forward.

Baywatch, Björk and mimicking Madonna: 30 years of French and Saunders

With surreal silliness and spot-on parody, the comedy duo – who return to TV screens this Christmas – altered the face of comedy

At the TV Baftas in 2009, French and Saunders were given a joint fellowship in celebration of their comedy career. They walked on stage to the sound of Here Come the Girls, as was the legal requirement for every woman achieving something from the period between 2008 and 2012. They got a standing ovation from the crowd of TV insiders. The applause went on, and on, so much so that Jennifer Saunders had to shout at the audience to quieten them down: “Shut up, shut up! That’s very embarrassing. Far too long.”
