Sheryl Lee Ralph singing, Jennifer Coolidge dancing and history-making 'Squid Game' winners livened up an Emmy night of all-too-familiar winners and odd production choices.

Emmys: Julia Garner Wins Best Supporting Actress in a Drama for Final Season of ‘Ozark’

Julia Garner took home her third Emmy for best supporting actress in a drama, all three for her role as Ruth Langmore in the Netflix series Ozark. “Thank you for writing Ruth; she’s changed my life,” said the actress while accepting her award at the 2022 Emmys. “I want to thank Jason Bateman for taking […]

Emmys Host Kenan Thompson on Monologue Fodder (The Slap!) and Pre-Show Rituals

Besides hosting the Emmys, of course, which other moments in your career are the most memorable? I’m blessed to have several. Opening the Emmys in 2018 with Kate McKinnon, becoming the longest-tenured SNL castmember and booking All That [see page 112] — I don’t take any of it for granted. I still remember the days […]

Emmys: Who Will Win, Who Should Win

Best Drama Series WILL WIN Succession (HBO) Succession, the most nominated program on TV (with 25 mentions, nine more than the next most-nominated drama) won two years ago for its second season. And though rookies Severance, Squid Game andYellowjackets all have passionate supporters, and sentiment often favors departing shows like Better Call Saul (the first […]

Emmy Telecast Goes Big — And Nice!: “It’s Not Going to Be a Hatchet Job”

Few in Hollywood speak with the enthusiasm and optimism of awards-show producers. A hybrid of party promoters and air traffic controllers, artists and makeshift medical experts (thanks to COVID-19), they’re regularly roasted for their efforts by either ratings or reviews and still eagerly come back for more. But Reginald “Reggie” Hudlin and Done+Dusted president Ian […]

Brutally Honest Emmy Ballot: “‘Pam & Tommy?’ Are You Kidding Me?”

Best Drama Series I thought that This Is Us went out with a bang and should’ve been in here. I would have preferred it to Squid Game, which was just too violent for me. Stranger Things has fallen off, and I bailed on Severance after episode two. (I know there are people who say it’s […]

This Week in TV: NFL Kicks Off, Emmy Awards, ‘Cobra Kai’

After a few light weeks for premieres, the Sept. 7-13 period is notably busier: The NFL season begins, the Emmy Awards are on deck and there are a good number of season and series debuts across all platforms. […]

‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ Production Designers: “Our Core Mission Is to Celebrate Black Women”

SKETCH: “FUNERAL BALL” This sketch — a callback to season one’s “Basic Ball” — was shot on location at RSI Locations in Pomona in an abandoned medical campus. “We had a bunch of tinsel and our title card lit up with marquee lights, and we wanted to bring those elements over to this sketch,” explains […]

How the Emmys Adopted Groupthink

When the nominees for the Emmy Awards are announced July 12, don’t be surprised if the acting categories are dominated by performers from a handful of shows — likely Succession, Ted Lasso, Saturday Night Live, The White Lotus, Stranger Things, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Euphoria, Yellowjackets, Squid Game and Dopesick. Yes, this is the era […]

Non-English Content Has a Bigger Shot Than Ever at This Year’s Emmys

In March, Netflix’s Squid Game made history with its SAG Award wins for best actor and best actress, making it the first non-English-language series to take home those honors. The hugely popular South Korean drama is now an Emmy frontrunner, and it’s likely it will be the first non-English show to earn a series nom […]

“This Is Why Women Are So Dope”: Robin Thede, Natasha Lyonne and THR’s Comedy Showrunner Roundtable

It was not by design that every participant on The Hollywood Reporter‘s Comedy Showrunner Emmy Roundtable was a woman. But, about one hour into an 80-minute Zoom over Memorial Day weekend, gender prompted a shared gripe: Female TV writers — even those as prolific as I Love That for You‘s Jessi Klein, Russian Doll‘s Natasha […]
