“Dexter” season six preview

HollywoodNews.com: Dexter doesn’t return with new episodes until Oct. 2 but a trailer teasing season six of the Showtime hit was unveiled this week at Comic-Com. Entertainment Weekly reports that Dexter (Michael C. Hall) begins the season with worries that the apple won’t fall far from the tree when it comes to his son, Harrison. Will the little guy be a killer, too?
“That’s a fundamental fear that Dexter has, that’s where he’s at,” Hall told the crowd. “He knows he doesn’t want his son to show those traits and he doesn’t want to encourage them. That’s a constant fear and consideration.”

“Dexter” fans don’t have to wait until the sixth season premiere

HollywoodNews.com: “Dexter” fans don’t have to wait until the sixth season premiere of Showtime’s award-winning series to learn more about the underbelly of Miami’s blood splatter analyst, Dexter Morgan. A webcast this Saturday, January 29, will feature director-cinematographer Romeo Tirone and award-winning editor Louis Cioffi discussing the tricks of their trade used to tell this critically acclaimed serial-killer story. Recently voted “Favorite TV Obsession” at the People’s Choice Awards, “Dexter” devotees can see clips of scenes, hear these key creatives talk about how they were made, and ask questions. The webcast starts at 11 a.m. PST, and is limited to the first 200 online attendees. Registration and complete information is available at http://www.createasphere.com/webcasts.
Developed in association with American Cinematographer Magazine and the American Cinema Editors, the webcast is part of a “Best of TV” series hosted by Createasphere, a company dedicated to building and enabling communities in the entertainment technology industry. The webcasts offer a rare opportunity for attendees to interact and directly ask questions about how decisions are made and scenes crafted for a television show.
“Dexter” follows Dexter Morgan, brilliantly played by Michael C Hall, as a Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst who works to help the homicide division solve murders, yet also satisfies his dark desires by hunting and killing bad guys who slip through the justice system. The show has garnered innumerable accolades, including Emmy® Awards for Best Drama, and Golden Globes and Screen Actor Guild Awards for Hall.
Tirone joined the “Dexter” team on the first episode and continues to direct and shoot the series. He earned a 2008 Emmy nomination for his cinematography of the show. A successful and in-demand director of photography for music videos and commercials, Tirone also shoots and directs “True Blood,” as well as other shows.
Cioffi has been working on “Dexter” since 2007 and won the 2010 American Cinema Editors Eddie Award for the episode “Remain to be Seen.” Previously, Cioffi edited several independent films and while at MTV, edited various series and independent films, including the pilot to “Undressed” which allowed him the opportunity to work with the Oscar-nominated director Roland Joffe (“The Killing Fields,” “The Mission”).

2010 Primetime Emmys Roundup

By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Well, Neil Patrick Harris did not win the Emmy for supporting actor in a comedy but with two already at home, he seemed to be in terrific spirits during the telecast.
Neil also managed one of the funnier lines of the evening when he said: “I’d like to thank the Academy for allowing a gay man to host show two years in a row. Congratulatons Jimmy [Fallon] you’re doing a great job!”
It was a pretty wonderfully gay Emmys starting with that glorious opening musical number where cast members from “Glee” including Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, Lea Michele and Amber Riley were joined by Jon Hamm, Tina Fey, Joel McHale, Jorge Garcia, Kate Gosselin (nooooo!) and a hilarious Betty White.
The first award went to Eric Stonestreet who plays one-half of the gay couple on ABC’s “Modern Family” followed by a win for openly gay Jane Lynch for role of straight cheer coach Sue Sylvester on “Glee.” Archie Panjabi, who plays lesbian law firm investigator Kalinda Sharma on CBS’s “The Good Wife” won for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series.
Openly gay “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy won the Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy series and said: “I’d like to dedicate this to all my teachers who taught me to sing and fingerpaint.”
I’m thrilled that Kyra Sedgwick finally, finally, won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for “The Closer.”
She had lost the Emmy four straight years but finally managed to win despite stellar combination that included Julianna Margulies (“The Good Wife”), Glenn Close (“Damages”), Mariska Hargitay (“Law & Order: SVU”) and first-time nominee Connie Brittan (“Friday Night Lights”).
I love that Kyra asked presenter Tina Fey to hold her Emmy as she gave her speech in which she thanked her “kids who let me fly away when I needed tyo and who now are flyng away themelves.” She also thanked “my one and only love Kev [husband Kevin Bacon]. and to quote him, ‘Let’s all be good to each other.”
In the outstanding drama series actor, there seemed to be utter shock when Michael C. Hall was, once again, inexplicably passed over so the Academy could give Bryan Cranston his third consecutive Emmy for “Breaking Bad.” In another threepeat, “Mad Men” won for outstanding drama series. I’d be happier for the show if its only gay character, played by Bryan Batt, not been written out.
But “Modern Family,” [...]

Hollywood Emmy Prediction Roundup: ‘Mad Men’ rules

HollywoodNews.com: When it comes to Emmy predictions, there’s a strong guess by media pundits that AMC’s “Mad Men” could three-peat for the Best Drama Series win.
However, while critics love the show, they want to see another program win. Entertainment Weekly’s Ken Tucker is going out on a ledge and exclaiming that voters will have a soft spot for “Lost.” However, Tucker’s co-worker Michael Ausiello, L.A. Times’ Tom O’Neil and the Vulture TV staff beg to differ.
Best Comedy Series odds go to ABC’s freshman show “Modern Family” per L.A. Times and EW. Vulture, however, would like to see “Glee” bring home the bacon since it’s a cultural phenomenon. The site thinks old-timer fave “30 Rock” could spoil the party for the new kids on the block
Vulture and Ausiello have their money on Jim Parsons of CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” as the winner for Best Comedy Actor. O’Neil is more conservative, selecting the Teflon Tony Shalhoub for “Monk.” Both Vulture and Ausiello concur that “Modern Family’s” Ty Burrell will win for Best Supporting Actor Comedy. O’Neil: Chris Colfer on “Glee.”
All three outlets are in full agreement that Edie Falco, hands down, is the Emmy fave for Best Actress in a Comedy for her moody portrayal of moody medic “Nurse Jackie” – a role that’s more dramatic than funny. Everybody would be nuts not to think that Jane Lynch will win Best Supporting Actress Comedy for “Glee.” In fact, she should be in the Actress slot. Odds, are Fox didn’t want to put her head to head with Falco.
Vulture and L.A. Times believe it’s Michael C. Hall’s year to win Best Actor Drama for his serial killer acting in Showtime’s “Dexter.” Ausiello has offbeat selections: “Bryan Cranston (of AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad’) and Kyle Chandler (of NBC’s ‘Friday Night Lights’). Cranston could well earn his third consecutive trophy, but the Academy has three years of snubs to atone for where Chandler is concerned.”
Vulture and L.A. Times guess for Best Supporting Actor: Terry O’Quinn from “Lost.” Ausiello’s choice: Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad.”
Everybody is in love with Julianna Margulies for her work on CBS’s “The Good Wife” given her rallies for Best Actress at the SAG Awards and Golden Globes.
For Supporting Actress Drama, the three sites think it will go to a “Mad Men” actress. But there’s a bit of [...]

Kyle Chandler is “sad to see” ‘Friday Night Lights’ go

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: Kyle Chandler admits that saying goodbye to “Friday Night Lights” has been “very difficult.”
The actor who – finally – garnered a long-deserved Emmy nomination for his portrayal of high school football coach Eric Taylor says, “It was a rough few weeks. We went from shooting Episode 12, which I directed, right into the final episode and, regardless of how enjoyable, it was a lot of work. So it wasn’t until a few days later that I caught my breath and realized, ‘That stage of my life is done.’ I’m sad to see it go. It was the happiest five years of my life.”
Of the cast and crew wrap party, he says, “I don’t like saying goodbye. I don’t like wrap parties for that reason. But none of that really hit me at the time. I was by myself when all the emotions and thoughts all came up at once.”
Chandler certainly does have something to look forward to, however: the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards Aug. 29. He’s in the running for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series along with Jon Hamm, Michael C. Hall, Hugh Laurie, Bryan Cranston, and Matthew Fox.
“I’m taking my two wives to the Emmys this year,” says the Texas-based actor with a laugh. Referring to fellow Emmy nominee Connie Britton, he goes on, “Obviously, my TV wife will be there. And my beautiful wife Kathryn and I will be coming to Los Angeles, seeing friends we haven’t seen in a white and be two adults in the city of Hollywood, living it up while the kids are at home kicking back. Of course my wife has to be there. The person you say goodnight to last is the one you want to say thank you to last.”
As for what he will do next, Chandler says, “Our two children are about to go to the state swimming competition and I’m going to be there and enjoy that. I’m going to enjoy my horses and I’m going to relax. Whatever happens with the Emmy, the show was a great experience.”
