Never mind that Breaking Bad wrapped up the second half of its final season nearly a year ago. Out of sight definitely didn't mean out of mind for the Academy voters this year, as the acclaimed AMC drama dominated the Emmy Awards, facing off against HBO's Game of Thrones and True Detective, among other series, and coming out on top. That includes closing out the awards show by winning the grand prize of Outstanding Drama series one last time.
One of the biggest stories coming out of this year’s Emmy nominations was the flippant broadness of the TV Academy’s rules for what series went into which categories. Looking to avoid all manner of category controversy are the Golden Globes.
When consider female leads for the second season of True Detective, Elisabeth Moss seems like a really obvious choice. Not only has she played a detective before, but she's a fantastic actor and would be an asset to the HBO anthology series in any role.
The latest actor’s name circling True Detective's second season is none other than Vince Vaughn, who is reportedly in preliminary discussions to take a part in the darkness that Season 2 will bring. Is this decision money, baby?
In the fastest news to zip around the entertainment-verse today, it seems like True Detective may have landed another Season 2 lead. Soon after news broke that veteran actor Colin Farrell is in talks to join the critically-acclaimed drama, news broke that his partner in crime will likely be none other than Taylor Kitsch.
What fans are really hungry for now is news about who will take the two stellar actors’ places once Season 2 rolls around. Here’s one big clue: Colin Farrell.
Following up on the lengthy list of Emmy nominations that was announced today, we've picked over the choices the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made with regards to the main categories, and we found quite a few reasons to applaud the nominees, and just as many reasons to to wave our fists and complain over the talented actors and outstanding TV shows that didn't make the cut this year.
There is one giant, glaring issue with these Emmy Nominations that every single man, woman and child in the free world should share. It makes no sense whatsoever that True Detective and Fargo are not in the same category. None. And rather than a weird little quirk, the diverting paths of those two shows are a clear example of a larger problem that’s only getting worse.
Nominations for the 66th Emmy Awards will be announced today! Last year's list of nominees included Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Girls and The Big Bang Theory, among others. Will those series make their way back onto the Outstanding Comedy and Drama list this time around?
For those without HBO, the chance to watch True Detective has arrived! HBO released the DVD and Blu-ray set for True Detective today, and in addition to coming complete with the full first season of the riveting crime drama, the bonus features also include deleted scenes, commentaries and other behind-the-scenes looks at the series.
As of late, the only thing we really knew about the second season of HBO's True Detective was that Matthew McConaughey would definitely not be coming back for Season 2, which will center on a new crime and a new set of characters. And that, despite reports to the contrary, Jessica Chastain was not cast as one of the leads.
Well, that was fast. Less than a day after rumors began circulating that Jessica Chastain had been offered a starring role in Season 2 of True Detective, a new report states that the Zero Dark Thirty star and Oscar nominee is not doing the series.
It’s been nothing but crickets, at least officially, from HBO since True Detective’s first season ended, but that might all be about to change. Rumors have started to swirl that the beloved mystery series may have offered one of its two leads to one of the best actresses on the planet: Jessica Chastain.
You know that uncomfortable moment when your Dad walks into the room while you're watching one of the most awkward sex scenes of HBO's Girls, and uses it as an opportunity to talk to you about your right to speak up because it's "your body"? Ok, maybe that never happens to you, but the scenario sure is funny and HBO's not above using it to promote HBO Go.
TV is an evolving medium and that can certainly be said for how we categorize scripted shows. So it's interesting to see the debates and shifts happening as they relate to which shows are being submitted for which categories at the Emmy's.
