The next big award show is the Primetime Emmys. It is still very early to predict these accurately, but we think we are narrowing in on many categories.
The final season of “Mad Men” should cause a stir, while new shows like “Better Call Saul” and “The Last Man on Earth” could potentially breakthrough. Not to mention the return of “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” and “Modern Family.”
One of the most beloved comic series of the new millennium, “Y: The Last Man” was slated to be adapted a couple years ago. Unfortunately the last real news report about the project came in January when we learned that New Line Cinema was on the verge of losing the rights to the project unless they were to start production soon.
Originally “Distrubia” director D.J Caruso was slated to direct the project. Comic creator Brian K. Vaughn had written a screenplay that condensed the whole series into one film.

TV Analysis: Is “Heroes Reborn” a good idea?
“An iconic series that still commands a rabid fan base, “Heroes” will return to the network in 2015 as an event miniseries with original creator and executive producer Tim Kring at the helm, it was announced today by NBC President Jennifer Salke.”
“NBC has ordered 13 episodes for a new stand-alone story arc entitled “Heroes Reborn,” with all details of storylines and characters being kept under wraps.”
The press release mentions the impact that the original television series had in 2006. It also mentions the launch of a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the new charactes and new storylines.

Christine Baranski, The Good Wife

Many would have strong arguments that state that Golden Globes matter very little to the Oscar race. I think, in some cases, they matter a lot. Even since their slates started showing up more clean (No More “The Tourist” incidents) the H.F.P.A. has been given us some solid selections in each category.
This year there were a couple notable things that occurred. A couple notable films/shows that were left out of contention, and a couple of reasonable twists, and some unreasonable. So let’s take a look at these nominations and see what was good, what was bad, and what was just ugly. (more…)
