We were all in need of additional laughs over the course of 2016, even as comedy seemed to turn more poignant (and occasionally darker) than ever. That contradiction is no more apparent than with the 2017 Golden Globes’ choice for Best Television Series, Musical or Comedy, as Atlanta takes home the gold.
The 2016 Emmy Awards have some outstanding upsets, but there’s always bound to be a few repeats. Once again, Veep has officially taken home the statue for Outstanding Comedy Series, beating out some impressive competition.
The fine folk at Honest Trailers rarely get into the TV game (even less often double-dipping), but suffice to say, certain series might take years to make the rotation. No longer, as all the major Emmy 2016 contenders, from The Americans to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt get their own mini trailer parodies!
Boy, that was quick. 2016 Emmy nominees were announced this morning, and special presenters Lauren Graham and (a very excitable) Anthony Anderson wasted no time in revealing this year’s crop of nominees. While there was rightfully plenty of love to go around for dramas like The People v. O.J. Simpson and Mr. Robot, and comedy faves Veep and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, there were a few disappointments — namely, where the hell is UnREAL?! Or The Leftovers? Come on, Emmys.
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!
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.
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.
Ahead of what will likely prove one of its biggest recorded weekends, HBO already issued a 2017 renewal to Game of Thrones, and now its comedy companions follow suit. Not only will our beloved Veep stay in office for a sixth season, so too will Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley bumble through the tech revolution for a fourth year.
Now that we’ve stumbled our way through the past weekend’s unremarkable Russell Crowe hour, SNL has a bright weekend ahead in returning former cast member Julia Louis-Dreyfus to the stage. The first official promos have arrived, as Julia remembers her classic SNL role … singular … as well as her hit HBO series, Beep.
April 24 still feels a ways away, and where Game of Thrones Season 6 and Silicon Valley Season 3 have already clued us into new trailers, Selina Meyer at last follows suit for Veep Season 5. The HBO political comedy brings twice the vice and barely any of the President in a first look at the 2016 run.
