For Awards, the Divide Between U.S., Global TV Shows Is Blurred Thanks to Streaming

For Awards, the Divide Between U.S., Global TV Shows Is Blurred Thanks to Streaming
Back in May, “Killing Eve” killed it at the BAFTA TV awards, winning the drama series prize as well as best actress for Jodie Comer and supporting actress for Fiona Shaw.

Killing Eve” is a phenomenal show, and deserves the accolades it has received, including a Golden Globe earlier this year for star Sandra Oh. But those three BAFTA wins came with a bit of controversy. In allowing the series to score 14 total nominations between its TV awards and TV craft awards, BAFTA (aka the British Academy of Film and Television Arts) bent its own rules.

In order for a program to be eligible, the org usually requires it to premiere in the U.K., and for creative control to reside inside the U.K. “Killing Eve,” however, first aired in the United States, on BBC America. The show was also first developed for BBC America. As a U.S.

Emmys 2019: This Year’s Drama Nominees Are Anything But Dramatic

Emmys 2019: This Year’s Drama Nominees Are Anything But Dramatic
For as stacked as the 2019 Emmy comedy categories are, the drama categories are comparatively dire. Blame it on a lack of competition, blame it on the TV Academy for overlooking viable contenders, blame it on the rain: No matter how you slice it, the drama races just doesn’t measure up this year.

It would be wrong to blame “Game of Thrones” for this lack of intrigue, what with its 32 Emmy nominations sucking up all the air in the room and all extra slots that could have potentially gone to a more interesting batch of candidates. Rip “Game of Thrones.” You will be missed. Eventually. Probably. But not this year.

And even if the batch of nominees is underwhelming, there’s still plenty to discuss.

No Time To Die Synopsis Teases James Bond Coming Out Of Retirement

After months and months of speculation from fans, Bond 25 finally got an official title today. The latest entry in the never-ending franchise, and Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007, is to be called No Time To Die. Following up on this reveal, Sony has now dropped a new synopsis for the pic, which promises Bond coming out of retirement to foil one last threat to the world.

Similar to previous plot information, this description teases that Bond’s been out of the spy game for a while, enjoying life in the sun with Madeline Swann (Lea Seydoux), until Jeffrey Wright’s Felix Leiter calls him back into the fray and onto the trail of a mysterious villain (presumably Rami Malek).

“In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the

The drama directing Emmy could go to a woman for just the 4th time with ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Killing Eve’

The drama directing Emmy could go to a woman for just the 4th time with ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Killing Eve’
Two years ago, “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” Reed Morano ended a 22-year cold streak when she became just the third woman to win the Best Drama Directing Emmy. Two women have a chance of joining that group this year to be No. 4: Daina Reid for “Handmaid’s” and Lisa Brühlmann for “Killing Eve.”

Before Morano, the only female drama directing champs were Karen Arthur and Mimi Leder. Morano’s field included two other women, her fellow “Handmaid’s” director Kate Dennis and Lesli Linka Glatter for “Homeland.” Last year, “Handmaid’s” helmer Kari Skogland, who was the only woman in the lineup, was the odds-on frontrunner to win, but the award ended up going to Stephen Daldry for “The Crown.”

Reid, whose nominated episode is “Holly” — one of “Handmaid’s” three eligible orphaned episodes this cycle — and Brühlmann, nominated for “Desperate Times,” are up against three “Game of Thrones
