The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in, and expectedly outraging everyone across the internet. It takes a 'True Detective' to figure out this 'American Horror Story,' but did the right nominations go to the right people? Will Tatiana Maslany ever get her due? Can dogs really write blogs? We weigh in on the upsets, upchucks and underdogs of today's TV snubs.
HBO has long been a thorn in the side of streaming media enthusiasts, only licensing its content to be accessed through HBO GO, unlike the Netflix and Amazon Prime models that have become so commonplace in recent years. Now, the pay-cable network struck a surprising Amazon Prime deal to deliver streams of a variety of shows past and present, but don't expect to start that 'Game of Thrones' marathon just yet.
Surprised though we were to see HBO agree to make season 3 of Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' its final season, the early end has nothing on his latest revelations about the journalism drama. Speaking from a recent conference, Sorkin straight up apologized for criticism of the series, simultaneously previewing a few major world events that will end up covered (*cough* scrutinized) when 'The Newsroom' returns this summer.
Last week saw HBO delivering updates on its highest-profile series, confirming final seasons for both 'True Blood' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' but it seems the TV reaper had one more axe to grind. Aaron Sorkin's oft-debated 'The Newsroom' will officially return for a third season, though the coming year will end the Emmy-winning Jeff Daniels drama altogether with a final run.
As many people were flipping back and forth between the second-to-last episode of 'Breaking Bad' and the 2013 Emmy Awards, many assumed that Bryan Cranston would take home one last Best Actor Emmy for his work as Walter White. Those people (including us!) were wrong, as Jeff Daniels pulled off the upset of all upsets and won Outstanding Lead Actor for his work on 'The Newsroom.'
The HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' will close out its second season this coming Sunday with "Election Night, Part 2," a season that was a bit truncated by costly reshoots. To mark the occasion, we've got two new finale sneak peeks from 'The Newsroom''s newest closer, and an insider update on HBO's season 3 renewal status!
It seems concerns about the renewal chances of HBO's Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' for season 3 proved unfounded, as series star Jeff Daniels took to Twitter to announce that the series would indeed return. Or will it? HBO claims that Daniels' announcement arrived prematurely, leaving the future of 'The Newsroom' not so set in stone as we might have thought.
Just a few days ago, concerns arose over HBO Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom,' whose production-challenged second season and modest ratings made it unclear if the cable network would opt to pursue a third season, given the delay in announcement. Now, Aaron Sorkin fans can breath easy as 'The Newsroom' season 3 will officially unfurl on the teleprompter in summer 2014!
HBO's 'The Newsroom' has been mired in controversy and debate from its very inception, whether by Aaron Sorkin's tense relationship with the media, or the uneven reception of the series itself. Most critics have come to consensus that the still-airing second season has marked a significant step forward, but are HBO or Sorkin himself dragging their feet on a third season renewal?
Earlier today we learned from the HBO panel at the ongoing TCA press tour that in-development projects like 'Criminal Justice' and a 'Transporter' TV series had largely been stalled, but the premium cable network had nothing but good things to say about the futures of its current flagship hits, from 'Game of Thrones' to 'True Blood' and 'The Newsroom.' Less certain however, is the fate of Larry David's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'
