“Free Solo,” the National Geographic feature documentary that already claimed the Oscar earlier this year, lead the field on the night largely devoted to unscripted programming with seven big wins. On Sunday, the remaining Creative Arts Emmys will be handed out for shows largely in the scripted genre.
RuPaul earned his fourth consecutive trophy as reality host for his work out front on VH1’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race.
“An Emmy For Megan” also lost both categories it was nominated for in 2018, Best Short-Form Series and Best Actress (Amram).
This year, “An Emmy For Megan” was denied by SundanceTV’s “State of the Union.” Starring Chris O’Dowd and Rosamind Pike — both of whom won Emmys in the acting categories — the 10-episode first season from author Nick Hornby and director Stephen Frears took home the Emmy for Best Short-Form Series, as well, going three-for-three on Sunday night.
The HBO historical miniseries, which dramatized the Soviet Union’s 1986 nuclear disaster, did not shy away from painting bleak pictures. “Please Remain Calm,” the series’ second episode, followed the events that occurred several hours after the explosion, including the eventual evacuation of Pripyat.
“Chernobyl’s” harrowing cinematography is one of many reasons the miniseries became a breakout hit for HBO. IndieWire’s Ben Travers lauded the series’ bleak atmosphere and emotional weight in his A- review.
Although 2019 was the first year that Ihre was nominated for an Emmy, the cinematographer has been on the rise in Hollywood for years. Ihre was recognized by IndieWire in 2015 as one of the industry’s rising cinematographers due to his exceptional work on projects
EU dismay as Boris Johnson compares himself to HulkEU officials reject Boris Johnson claim of ‘huge progress’ in Brexit talks
Hulk might be strong, but he works best as part of team, says Hollywood star Mark Ruffalo, who probably knows a little bit more about the Marvel superhero than the prime minister.
The actor, who has portrayed the anger management-averse green giant for the last 12 years, spoke out after Boris Johnson compared himself to the Hulk in escaping membership of the European Union: “Hulk always escaped, no matter how tightly bound in he seemed to be – and that is the case for this country. We will come out on 31 October and we will get it done,” Johnson told the Mail on Sunday.
“Well, some places they went were painful like, ‘What did you sing at your dad’s deathbed?'” Rosanne Cash told IndieWire. “I think that was the first time I told that.”
“Country Music,” delves into these details – not to mine personal tragedy – but to highlight the often complex and tumultuous lives that these legends in the industry led. So much heartache, loneliness, and yes, drama, made headlines and yet simultaneously fueled art.

But the day after its debut the film was hovering around 50 on Metacritic. That’s why figuring out the Oscar potential for this movie is dicey. You don’t have to have critical acclaim to win an Oscar. Look at “Bohemian Rhapsody” last year (Metacritic: 49). But that was a worldwide $893 million blockbuster based on the enormous appeal of Queen and Freddie Mercury. The Oscar win went to Rami Malek.
While “Jojo Rabbit” may play well to Academy voters,
Titled “Beyoncé Presents: Making the Gift,” the new hour-long special will allow viewers to “experience the process” behind the “Lion King” companion album, according to a new teaser released by ABC.
The teaser also depicts a number of clips from the recording studio intermixed with choreography shots and scenes from the Disney film itself. Another teaser from the special will air early Monday morning on Good Morning America.

“The Lion King: The Gift” comes from Parkwood Entertainment/Colombia Records and was released on July 19 alongside Disney’s remake of the classic animated film (read Variety‘s review here). Beyoncé, who also stars as Nala in the film,
“Hustlers” planted the flag for the cause of comedies, original projects, and women front and center with a stronger-than-anticipated $33 million. That was good enough for second place, behind “It: Chapter Two,” which managed to keep its second-weekend drop to reasonable levels and a total just under $41 million that maintained the #1 slot. A particularly strong group of small-drop holdovers also added to decent results.
And then there was the absolutely dreadful #8 with “The Goldfinch,” which grossed $2.64 million. Its failure, which Warner Bros. can sustain, will have more long-term impact than most similar high-end duds.
What emerged was a weekend total that should end up over $110 million, enough to slightly surpass the same date last year.
Radcliffe joined Howden and “Ready or Not’s” breakout star Samara Weaving in the Variety’s Toronto Film Festival studio, presented by AT&T to talk the limits of acting with weapons attached to your hands, snorting vitamin C and the worst parts of the internet.
“Guns Akimbo” takes place in a world where a nefarious underground internet movement, called “skism,” live casts random strangers fighting each other to the death. When the morbid streaming service turns its eye on Radcliffie’s mild-mannered, troll-hating desk jockey, Miles, things get even more violent. His character is kidnapped, knocked out and revived with guns literally bolted to his hands. Now stuck inside this real-life, video game hell, he must fight or die.
Growing up is hard.
For an adolescent just making their way into the world, it seems like the physical changes, mood swings, and all the conflicting emotions that come with transitioning into adulthood are the most cataclysmic events in the world — a matter of life and death.
But what does it mean to observe this period from some distance, particularly through the cold lens of a movie camera? ‘’I probably never saw a happy teenager.” Italian director David Maldi remarked casually while promoting his new film “L’Apprendistato,” which premiered at the 72nd Locarno Festival in the Cineasti del presente competition.
It might seem like a joke, but Maldi takes very seriously this job of documenting adolescence, especially as a

Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit has won the Toronto International Film Festival’s (Tiff) Grolsch Global People’s Choice Award, a key bellwether in the Oscars race.
In the last decade every winner has gone on to earn a best picture nod except Nadine Labaki’s 2011 winner Where Do We Go Now? Last year’s winner Green Book won the best picture Oscar, and the other Tiff audience award winners of the previous 10 years to do that were 12 Years A Slave (Tiff 2013), and The King’s Speech
