Michael K. Williams has to buck an unfortunate trend to win his Emmy for ‘When They See Us’
Michael K. Williams received one of the eight acting Emmy nominations for “When They See Us,” in Best Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actor. It’s the actor’s third nomination in the category, making him one of six men to have nabbed at least three bids. But if Williams wants to win, he’ll have to pull off a rare feat because not many of them have converted their nominations into victories.

Williams joins Beau Bridges, John Gielgud, John Malkovich and Joe Mantegna as three-time Best Limited Series/TV Movie Supporting Actor nominees, while Brian Dennehy holds the category record with four bids. Only two of them have won here: Bridges, who is the category’s only two-time champ and Malkovich, who prevailed for “Death of a Salesman” in 1986.

Homeland will have the longest hiatus between seasons, with the drama’s final eighth season set to premiere February 9, two years after Season 7, which debuted on February 11 2018.

At Showtime’s TCA executive session, the network’s President of Entertainment Gary Levine stressed that the delays are related to the demands of filming and no creative or other issues.

Homeland is an ambitious series, and especially in its final season,” he said. “[Showrunner] Alex [Gansa[ wants to go out proudly, and he’s going to. And that has involved production in multiple countries, and, at times, in places that have some issues just takes time.”

Levine added: “There have been no missteps here. It’s been a relatively smooth process but a very ambitious production schedule that has just taken more time than we hoped it would. And one of the things we do at Showtime is we’d rather have it good than fast. And that’s

Showtime at TCA: Homeland Delayed, Halo Casts Leads, Gal Godot Series, and More

If you were hoping for a premiere date for Showtime's delayed final season, then we have some good and bad news.

Homeland Season 8 has been delayed once again, but we do have a premiere date. That's a silver lining, right?

The premiere date is set as Sunday, February 9, 2020.

As you are probably well aware, the series was supposed to return in June, but it was delayed to fall, and now it will be sitting out of 2019 entirely.

While it's common for many to think that there are issues with the final season's quality, Showtime president of entertainment said that the delay is a result of the production demands of an international series.

Supervized Trailer: Bridges & Berenger Are the Oldest Heroes in Town

A brand new trailer for Supervised has arrived online. Superhero movies are the biggest thing in Hollywood right now and they've been that way for more than a decade. At some point, studios are going to have to find ways to try and reinvent the genre in order to give audiences something a little fresh. That doesn't always mean better, but it's an inevitability. In this case, Lionsgate is giving us a look at some Hollywood veterans as retiree superheroes. To what degree that may be appealing, as presented, very much depends on the viewer's sensibilities.

The trailer begins with a look at a retirement home specifically designed for superheroes who have aged out of the job. Their powers are being kept in check and everyone seems to be pretty miserable. It's not long before we realize that something isn't as it seems and a few of these old-school heroes

New Regency Acquires Film Rights To ‘The Hawkline Monster’

  • Deadline
New Regency has acquired the film rights to the long-gestating adaptation of Richard Brautigan’s Gothic Western novel The Hawkline Monster which the legendary Hal Ashby had been trying to get to the big screen, Deadline has confirmed. Roy Lee (It), Andrew Trapani (Winchester), and Steven Schneider (Pet Sematary) will serve as producers.

The Harold & Maude filmmaker first acquired The Hawkline Monster in 1975, a year after the book was published and attempted to adapt it into a film. Various stars were attached including Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman as well as Jeff and Beau Bridges. Following the death of Brautigan in 1984 and then Ashby in 1988, Tim Burton fell in line to develop the project for Nicholson and Clint Eastwood. The adaptive rights then fell into limbo between the Ashby and Brautigan estates for decades before New Regency picked up the rights.
