Gee, isn't it nice to not have to wake up at 5:30 A.M. for the 2016 Emmy nominations? Either way, the big announcement is finally here, as presented by black-ish star Anthony Anderson and Gilmore Girls returnee Lauren Graham, so let’s find out what we're all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!
Orange Is the New Black
That time of year is upon us again, as this coming Thursday, July 14 sees the announcement of the 2016 Emmy Awards nominations, in a field that seems tougher by each year. Favorites like Game of Thrones hit new levels of spectacle this year, while newcomers like UnREAL and Mr. Robot could split the nominations wide open.
The sheer gravity of Orange Is the New Black Season 4 demands a re-watch before long, but Netflix is already hard at work on that three-year renewal with Season 5 production. Not only that, but Lori Petty has compelling reason to believe fan-favorite Lolly will return for Season 5, despite an ominous outcome this year.
If the Golden Globes can reward Lady Gaga, surely ScreenCrush can recognize TV’s best too, right? Right? By gum, we’re going to try.
A few weeks back, bizarre news that Netflix’s Fuller House had viewership on par with The Walking Dead caught us by surprise, and it seems the Tanners may be unstoppable on the streaming service. That strange cell phone app analyzing viewership data by audio reveals Orange Is the New Black Season 4 came close, but Fuller House remains Netflix’s crown jewel.
FXX favorite and critical darling You’re the Worst won’t continue its worst impulses for Season 3 until late August, but that isn’t stopping the series from a timely addition. Fresh off Orange Is the New Black Season 4 this past weekend, Samira Wiley has broken out of Litchfield and made a run for Gretchen and Jimmy’s out west.
Lest you think that three more seasons of Orange Is the New Black would keep creator Jenji Kohan locked up, the former Weeds boss is already eying another enclosure for Netflix - the ring. ‘80s women’s wrestling league G.L.O.W. will get a revival of sorts on the streaming outlet, reborn as a 10-episode comedy set within the real-life league.
The third season of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black left Litchfield on a quietly ominous note, that for all the unexpected beach days, a busload of new prisoners would join the rapidly-filling halls. Things seem to have taken a turn for the worse by Season 4, as overcrowding and some harsh new guards take the first 2016 Orange is the New Black trailer in a decidedly dark direction.
Streaming markets are still evolving, between features available, tiered subscriptions, pricing and more, and Netflix, granddaddy of them all, will soon up their prices without a majority of customers realizing. Say goodbye to those grandfathered into the Standard Netflix subscription, as you’ll be forking over an additional $2.00 each month without realizing.
Lest you think Netflix would ever cut you a break from its original programming, the ladies of Litchfield are already gearing up Orange is the New Black Season 4 promotion. Piper may not be the only one in trouble, however, according to the first new photos of the season.
