Inside Zooey Deschanel and Jonathan Scott's
Zooey Deschanel and Jonathan Scott "like each other a lot." The New Girl alum, who announced her split with husband Jacob Pechenik in early September, has recently been spending time with the Property Brothers star.

"They were really sweet together chatting over their meal and smiling at one another," an eyewitness tells E! News of the couple. "They...

Emmy Music: ‘GoT’ Scores Again; McCartney, Springsteen Specials Share Wins
Music specials had a big look going into the weekend’s creative arts Emmys, but no one ended up being the boss of the ceremonies — not even Bruce Springsteen. His “Springsteen on BroadwayNetflix film won Thom Zimny an award for direction, but it lost for best variety special, the category that would have allowed the star himself to finally complete his Egot collection.

It was a contest between specials starring Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Beyonce in various categories, but only Beyonce’s “Homecoming” went home completely empty-handed among the three. “Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool” picked up the award for variety special (pre-recorded), as Emmy voters decided to share the love between the Springsteen and McCartney showcases.

On the scoring side, the Emmys congratulated one returning powerhouse composer — Ramin Djawadi, winning for the second year in a row for his “Game of Thrones” series work

Collaboration Connects Crafts Across Creative Arts Emmys Categories

  • Variety
With 97 Emmys set to be given out over the two-night Creative Arts ceremony, it can be easy to forget that the silos the Television Academy creates for awards purposes belie the need for crafts departments to collaborate as much as possible to create a successful show.

Ask even casually, and artisans at just about every stage of production will stop to acknowledge their crew, co-workers and the departments whose work intertwines with their own. For double Emmy-nommed sound editor Mandell Winter, the producers, director and film editor are his closest collaborators. He works with them to get a careful understanding of what sounds are needed for a project. He also talks with other sound editors to ensure whatever they need makes it to the mixing stage and is part of the overall editorial process, making adjustments as needed.

Rappers T.I. and Chance the Rapper have trolled Grammy-winning musician Cardi B over her driving skills.

Chance was the first to troll Cardi, quote-retweeting a post that made fun of her driving skills after a teaser for her upcoming show "Rhythm + Flow" made its way online.

From #MeToo to MoMA, Hannah Gadsby Pushed the Culture Forward With ‘Nanette’

In February, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City announced a renewed focus on works by women, Latinos, Asians, African-Americans and other overlooked artists following a massive renovation and expansion. According to sources with knowledge of the museum’s decision, the effort to include more underrepresented artists was at least partly inspired by Hannah Gadsby’s galvanizing Netflix special “Nanette.” In a rare blend of comedy, one-person show, and searing social critique, Gadsby drew upon her art history background in “Nanette” to admonish the art world for revering artists like Pablo Picasso, who had relationships with underage girls, while largely ignoring women artists.

“Wow! You just never expect…like institutions are not really listening. So that’s kind of incredible, isn’t it?” Gadbsy said during a recent phone interview after learning of her influence on MoMA’s reasoning for the first time. “I’m a bit blown away.

Film Review: ‘Technoboss’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Technoboss’
If a particularly enterprising Portuguese amateur theater group took it upon themselves to stage Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman,” only to freshen things up by making it a black-box musical, the result wouldn’t be a million miles from “Technoboss,” the latest from cultivated oddball auteur João Nicolau. Anyone who takes that statement as a compliment, then, is squarely in the demographic for this traveling-marketer road movie: very much a mileage-may-vary proposition, even as the protagonist’s own odometer ticks languidly along. Others may find Nicolau’s blend of doleful deadpan, perky showmanship and existential panic — call it Carpool Karaoke as hosted by Larry David and Aki Kaurismaki — too preciously absurd to stomach.

Either way, at 112 minutes, “Technoboss” is probably too much of a weird thing. — which began with a surprising slot in Locarno’s main competition. Less brazen programmers may find room for it in more experimental,

James Corden Got a Little Help From Paul McCartney on His Drive to the Emmys

James Corden Got a Little Help From Paul McCartney on His Drive to the Emmys
Saying “Baby, I could drive your car” has proven to be a very good strategy for James Corden — never more so than when he put Paul McCartney into the highly sought passenger seat.

The primetime special “Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney, Live From Liverpool” is a contender in five Emmy categories this year, including variety special (prerecorded), plus directing, writing, editing and sound mixing for a variety special. That’s hardly the only impressive stat Corden can claim, though. The late-night host himself is up for seven Emmys, the most for any on-air performer this year, and five of those nods are directly associated with the “Carpool Karaoke” franchise.

“You’ve got to be really careful at times like this to not start to think you might be more of a dude than you really are,” admits the “Late Late Show” host, faced with the abundance of Emmy love.

Ben Winston (‘Late Late Show with James Corden’): ‘We made something really beautiful’ with Paul McCartney [Exclusive Video Interview]

“It was so much more than a carpool,” reflects producer/director Ben Winston about the TV special where James Corden drove the iconic Paul McCartney around Liverpool last summer. In our recent webchat (watch the exclusive video above), he adds, “We were taking Paul back to Liverpool. I wanted it to feel like the audience was coming on a journey with Paul and James. Carpools can only last 15 minutes, but this was an hour special. As a director you couldn’t look at it as a carpool anymore.”

Winston directed the special, which was a spin-off from “Late Late Show with James Corden”’s popular segment “Carpool Karaoke.” The segment has already spawned an Apple series and other prime-time specials. This year Winston is the most nominated individual at the Emmy Awards. He has eight nominations for his work on “The Late Late Show,” “When Corden Met McCartney,” “Carpool Karaoke

Here’s Why James Corden Is King of the Emmys This Year

Here’s Why James Corden Is King of the Emmys This Year
An edited version of this story about James Corden and Ben Winston first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

The most-nominated person at this year’s Emmys is writer, producer and director Ben Winston, with eight separate nominations. The second-most nominated is James Corden, with seven.

What does this teach us?

Well, since Winston happens to produce, write and direct James Corden’s shows, it teaches us that it’s good to be in proximity to Corden (or to be Corden).
