Emmys Take a Risk by Jumping on the No-Host Bandwagon

  • The Wrap
If it worked for the Oscars, it’ll work for the Emmys.

That, at least, seems to be the reasoning behind the decision not to have a host for Sunday’s 71st Primetime Emmy Awards. Seven months after a hostless Academy Awards show garnered positive reviews and saw an uptick in ratings, the Emmys will go the same route and hope for a similar result.

Speaking to the Television Critics Association in August, Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier admitted that the network, the show producers and the Television Academy considered the Oscars show in making their decision – but, he said, the real reason was to have more time to celebrate the shows that are competing for Emmys for the last time this year, including “Game of Thrones,” “Veep,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Empire.”

Netflix may be the future of television, but it will likely need to wait a year and watch its rival HBO dominate the Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday.

HBO, after all, goes into the show with two shows that have ruled the Emmys over the past few years and recently completed their final seasons: “Game of Thrones,” the most-nominated and winningest series in Emmy history, will be competing one last time in the drama categories, and “Veep,” which has won the top Emmy for each of its last three seasons, will do the same in comedy.

Plenty of other shows are gunning for upsets, including “Killing Eve,” “Fleabag,” “Succession,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Pose” and “Barry,” but the chance to give a golden sendoff to “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” should prove irresistible.

NewFest Sets ‘Sell By’ As Opening-Night Film, ‘Tu Me Manques’ To Close Lgbtq Fest

NewFest Sets ‘Sell By’ As Opening-Night Film, ‘Tu Me Manques’ To Close Lgbtq Fest
Exclusive: The 31st edition of NewFest, the New York Lgbtq film festival, has unveiled Mike Doyle’s rom-com Sell By as its opening-night film, while Rodrigo Bellott’s award-winning Tu Me Manques will close the fest. In addition, Martha StephensTo the Stars will serve as the centerpiece.

This year’s festival runs October 23-29 at Sva Theatre, Cinépolis Chelsea, and The Lgbt Community Center in New York.

“As we were reminded during this year’s World Pride and 50th anniversary of Stonewall, New York City is and always has been the epicenter of queer life and queer liberation,” said NewFest executive director David Hatkoff. “We are thrilled to bookend New York’s 31st annual Lgbtq Film Festival, our biggest and boldest yet, with two magnificent films set in our vibrant, diverse, international city.”

Sell By stars Scott Evans (Grace and Frankie), Kate Walsh (Grey’s Anatomy), Michelle Buteau, Augustus Prew (High-Rise) and Patricia Clarkson. The Manhattan-set ensemble follows a group of friends who navigate their complicated relationships in the city. Adam (Evans) and Marklin (Prew) seem to have the world in the palm of their hands, but their love life could use improvement. Marklin’s rise as a social media influencer, and Adam’s struggle to switch from ghost painting to creating his own work, has caused a rift between them. As their five-year relationship grows colder, they must decide whether to go all-in or explore other options. Meanwhile, Cammy (Buteau) is failing to find her way in the world of online dating, and Haley (Zoe Chao) has to fend off an almost-legal student who’s hot for teacher.

Tu Me Manques is an adaptation of Bellott’s own 2015 play which explores a trio of men and their struggle to reconcile their identity and heritage. Following his son Gabriel’s death, Jorge travels from conservative Bolivia to New York City to confront Gabriel’s boyfriend Sebastian. While the two battle over Jorge’s inability to accept his son, Sebastian channels his grief into a bold new play in honor of his lost love, in which Gabriel’s inner turmoil is transformed into an eye-popping gay fantasia. The film won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Screenplay at Outfest this year and is Bolivia’s selection for Best International Feature Film at the 2019 Academy Awards.

NewFest’s U.S. Centerpiece Film, To the Stars, features Kara Hayward (Moonrise Kingdom), Malin Akerman (Billions), Jordana Spiro (Ozark) and Tony Hale (Veep). The story follows a bespectacled and reclusive teen, Iris, who endures the booze-induced antics of her mother and daily doses of bullying from her classmates in a god-fearing small town in 1960s Oklahoma. Iris finds solace in Maggie, the charismatic and enigmatic new girl at school who hones in on Iris’s untapped potential and coaxes her out of her shell. When Maggie’s mysterious past can no longer be suppressed, the tiny community is thrown into a state of panic, leaving Maggie to take potentially drastic measures and inciting Iris to stand up for her friend and herself.

Stay tuned for the complete festival lineup, which will be announced September 19.

So not ‘Marvelous’: Rachel Brosnahan is the least likely acting champ to defend their Emmy crown, fans say

So not ‘Marvelous’: Rachel Brosnahan is the least likely acting champ to defend their Emmy crown, fans say
Sorry, Rachel Brosnahan, but we’ve got some not-so ‘Marvelous’ news: 44 percent of our readers believe you are the least likely reigning Emmy champ to defend their crown.

The ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star is one of five 2018 regular series acting winners who could go back to back, but while her road to the Best Comedy Actress Emmy last year was bump-free, she has a lot more roadblocks this year. For one, six-time champ Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) is back, looking to go 7 for 7 for the HBO satire. Brosnahan and Louis-Dreyfus have never competed against each other at any major awards show, so there’s no data at all. Jld is the favorite to repeat in our combined odds, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) in second and Brosnahan in third. Catherine O’Hara (“Schitt’s Creek”), Natasha Lyonne (“Russian Doll”) and Christina Applegate (“Dead to Me”) round out the six. Of note: Brosnahan

Primetime Creative Arts Emmys, Day 2: Complete List of Winners
After setting a new record for the most nominations a series has ever received in a single year, “Game of Thrones” dominated the 2019 Primetime Creative Arts Emmys, which were handed out on Sunday evening in downtown Los Angeles.

The final season of the epic HBO series won 10 awards, taking Emmys for casting, music, main-title design, picture editing, sound mixing and sound editing, makeup, costumes, visual effects and stunt coordination — though it was beaten by “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for cinematography, “Chernobyl” for production design and “Star Trek: Discovery” for prosthetic makeup.

Jane Lynch won the award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” the fourth different show for which Lynch has won an Emmy. The show also won the guest-actor award, with Luke Kirby helping shut “Saturday Night Live” out of the guest acting winner’s circle for the first time since 2015.

Emmy episode analysis: Henry Winkler seeks a bookend Emmy as lovable Gene on ‘Barry’

Emmy episode analysis: Henry Winkler seeks a bookend Emmy as lovable Gene on ‘Barry’
TV legend Henry Winkler finally won his first ever primetime Emmy last year for Best Comedy Supporting Actor for HBO’s “Barry.” After six nominations spanning his lengthy career, it was a moment to remember as he graciously accepted his Emmy to a rapturous standing ovation. He is back this year looking to defend his title.

On “Barry,” Winkler plays Gene Cousineau, an acting coach to a neurotic hit man (played by leading man and co-creator Bill Hader) who longs to be an actor. The veteran is enjoying a career renaissance decades after he became a TV superstar in the 1970s as Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli on “Happy Days.” His Emmy win finally came after three consecutive Best Comedy Actor nominations for his role on the classic ABC sitcom (1976-1978), a nomination in 1979 for Best Informational Program for “Who Are the DeBolts?” and a nom for his guest turn on

Emmy episode analysis: ‘Barry’ scene-stealer Anthony Carrigan could take out the competition
Anthony Carrigan received his first Emmy nomination this year for playing scene-stealing NoHo Hank, a weirdly exuberant, theatrical but ultimately naive Chechen mobster on HBO’s “Barry.” He co-stars alongside co-creator and leading man Bill Hader, who plays a depressed hit man with aspirations to be an actor and gets caught up in the messy lives of mobster Hank and his ruthless but often incompetent gang of thugs.

Carrigan is contending in the Best Comedy Supporting Actor category against 2018 champ Henry Winkler and his other “Barry” co-star Stephen Root, plus previous winners Tony Hale (“Veep”) and Tony Shalhoub (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and past nominee Alan Arkin (“The Kominsky Method”).

Long live the Queen of the Emmys! Julia Louis-Dreyfus is back as a Best Comedy Actress nominee for the final season of “Veep” and will likely continue breaking Emmy records.

Louis-Dreyfus is currently tied with TV legend Cloris Leachman as the performer with the most primetime acting wins (with eight each). Six are for “Veep,” one for “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and one for “Seinfeld.” In addition to that achievement, Louis-Dreyfus also has three more wins for producing three-time Best Comedy Series champ “Veep” for a total of 11 career wins.

Tony Hale may join the club of 3-time comedy supporting actor Emmy champs in this very unusual way
Tony Hale is one of eight men to have won the Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy twice and he’ll have his final shot — for “Veep” at least — to upgrade to an even more exclusive club next month of three-time champs. If Hale does pull through with the win, he will stand alone in one way in the group: He’d be the only three-time champ who never had consecutive victories of any kind.

Just five men have scored a trio of statuettes in this category, all of whom won at least two Emmys back to back: Art Carney, Ed Asner (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” 1971-72, ’75), Michael Richards (“Seinfeld,” 1993-94, ’97), Brad Garrett (“Everybody Loves Raymond,” 2002-03, ’05) and Jeremy Piven (“Entourage,” 2006-08).

Hale’s previous triumphs came in 2013 and 2015, and he is one of three men, the others being “Modern Family’s” Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell, to have won this category twice this decade.
