Julia Garner (Netflix’s ‘Ozark’) just broke this 40-year Emmy trend in Best Drama Supporting Actress

Julia Garner (Netflix’s ‘Ozark’) just broke this 40-year Emmy trend in Best Drama Supporting Actress
Age may be just a number, but it affects one Emmy category in particular quite significantly over the past few decades. In order to win Best Drama Supporting Actress at the Emmys, there seems to be an unwritten age requirement of 30 or older, as we have seen over the past 40 years of the category’s history, with few exceptions like Katherine Heigl winning at 29 for “Grey’s Anatomy.” There were three actresses nominated this year who could have broken the trend as they were all in their early to mid-20s: Julia Garner, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. Garner ended up prevailing Sunday night — see full list of winners.

SEEHere are the 14 Netflix shows that won Emmys in 2019: ‘Ozark,’ ‘When They See Us,’ ‘Black Mirror’ …

Garner is now the youngest to win Best Drama Supporting Actress since Kristy McNichol, who won for “Family” in 1979, two days before her 17th birthday.

Anton Yelchin Retrospective Returns ‘Green Room,’ ‘Like Crazy,’ and More to Theaters
Three of Anton Yelchin’s most beloved films will return to theaters this month in the run-up to the release of “Love, Antosha,” a documentary about the late actor’s many creative pursuits which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The theatrical retrospective will feature J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek” (2009), Drake Doremus’ “Like Crazy” (2011), and Jeremy Saulnier’s “Green Room” (2015). The screenings are set to take place at New York’s Quad Cinema and Portland’s Regal Fox Tower Cinemas, with additional cites to be announced at a later date.

Directed by Garret Price, “Love, Antosha” features interviews with the actor’s parents, Irina and Viktor Yelchin, as well as many of his high-profile friends and collaborators. While his acting work is well known to many, Price highlights the lesser-known sides of Yelchin’s artistic process by exploring his photographic projects as well as scoring the film entirely with the actor’s original music.

‘Love, Antosha’ Trailer: Documentary Honors Actor Anton Yelchin’s Life and Work
Almost three years after the tragic and shocking passing of the uncommonly sensitive and prolific actor Anton Yelchin, a new documentary about his life and work offers an intimate window into this rare talent. Garret Price’s heartbreaking “Love, Antosha” features interviews with the actor’s parents, Irina and Viktor Yelchin, as well as many of his high-profile friends and collaborators. While his acting work is well known to many, Price highlights the lesser-known sides of Yelchin’s artistic process by exploring his photographic projects as well as scoring the film entirely with the actor’s original music. The newly released trailer also promises plenty of archival photos and video of the young actor, sure to move any fan to tears.

The official synopsis reads: “From a prolific career in film and television, Anton Yelchin left an indelible legacy as an actor. Through his journals and other writings, his photography,

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Emmy Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Last Year’s Winner: Thandie Newton, “Westworld

Still Eligible: No.

Hot Streak: In the last 20 years, there have only been three repeat winners in this category: Anna Gunn for “Breaking Bad” (2013 – 2014), Blythe Danner for “Huff” (2005 – 2006), and Allison Janney for “The West Wing” (2000 – 2001). Nancy Marchand is the only actress to win Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in three consecutive years: between 1980 and 1982 for playing Margaret Pynchon in “Lou Grant.” She also won in 1978 for the same role, which is the most of any actor ever.

Fun Fact: 2018 wasn’t the only year the Emmys nominated seven actresses in the supporting actress category. In 1992, Valerie Mahaffey (“Northern Exposure”), Mary Alice (“I’ll Fly Away”), Barbara Barrie (“Law & Order”), Conchata Ferrell (“L.A. Law”), Cynthia Geary (“Northern Exposure”), Marg Helgenberger (“China Beach”), and Kay Lenz (“Reasonable Doubts”) were all up for the Emmy, and each performer represented a broadcast network. In 2018, none were.

Sandra Oh (‘Killing Eve’) could finally win Emmy after awards sweep of Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, SAG

Sandra Oh (‘Killing Eve’) could finally win Emmy after awards sweep of Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice, SAG
Sandra Oh has become an awards magnet for her performance as British intelligence agent Eve Polastri in “Killing Eve.” Over the past few weeks she racked up wins at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards and Screen Actors Guild Awards, winning over huge competition like Laura Linney (“Ozark”), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Julia Roberts (“Homecoming”). Yet, one cannot help but notice a major award missing from that sweep: the Emmy. Oh remains unrewarded at the Emmys, even for her acclaimed work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and she lost for the first season of “Killing Eve” this past September. With all those precursors under her belt, will Emmy voters finally reward her this September after six losses?

Emmy episode analysis: Ann Dowd (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) rings the bell in ‘June’
Ann Dowd finally received the recognition she long deserved last year when she won the Emmy for Best Drama Supporting Actress for her memorable performance as Aunt Lydia on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” For her second consecutive Emmy nomination she went with the Season 2 opener “June.”

The series picked up where it left off with the handmaids rounded up and forced to endure a fake hanging. Aunt Lydia then makes her grand appearance — if you’re a villain this is how you make an entrance! As she’s punishing the handmaids by making them hold rocks in the rain she learns that Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is pregnant. She demands the ladies join her in chanting, “Praise Be!­­”

Praise be! Will Ann Dowd (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) be 7th person to win back-to-back Emmys as Best Drama Supporting Actress?
Last year, Ann Dowd’s Emmy win for “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” first season was one of the biggest surprises of the evening as Thandie Newton (“Westworld”) seemed to be the frontrunner to win. Dowd was able to overcome vote splitting with her co-star Samira Wiley, but it remains unclear whether she will be able to overcome two of her co-stars this year. This time around, she is up against Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”), Alexis Bledel (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones”), Vanessa Kirby (“The Crown”), Yvonne Strahovski (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Newton.

If Dowd prevails, she’ll be the seventh in Best Drama Supporting Actress to win back-to-back Emmys, joining Ellen Corby, Nancy Marchand, Bonnie Bartlett, Allison Janney, Blythe Danner and Anna Gunn.

Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?

Can John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf still earn Emmy love despite icky ‘Roseanne’ cancellation?
When Kristin Chenoweth won an Emmy in 2009 for the cancelled ABC comedy “Pushing Daisies,” she joked, “I’m unemployed now, so I’d like to be on ‘Mad Men'” (watch below). Chenoweth’s triumph was hardly the first time someone prevailed at the Emmys for a cancelled TV show, and that’s the one potential bright spot for “Roseanne” scene-stealers John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf following the show’s shocking cancellation. However, while Goodman and Metcalf are still in the running for Emmys, might the icky demise of “Roseanne” thanks to Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweets make the entire program toxic to voters?

Will third time be the charm for Blythe Danner (‘Will & Grace’) in Best Comedy Guest Actress at the Emmy Awards?

Will third time be the charm for Blythe Danner (‘Will & Grace’) in Best Comedy Guest Actress at the Emmy Awards?
During the 2000s, Blythe Danner was an Emmy Awards darling, earning six nominations, including two victories, over just four years. Now, after more than a decade-long Emmy absence, Danner is poised for a grand return, once again in Best Comedy Guest Actress for “Will & Grace.”

Danner’s portrayal of Will (Eric McCormack)’s mom Marilyn earned her nominations in both 2005 and 2006. The actress returned in the show’s recent season finale, “It’s a Family Affair.” Much to the chagrin of her son, she is invited by Grace (Debra Messing) to move into their apartment for an extended visit. Grace’s father Martin (Robert Klein) is also staying over and, as he and Marilyn invade their kids’ lives, Will and Grace strive to come up with a plan to respectfully kick them out.

Gwen Inhat of The A.V Club praised the performances of both Danner and Klein, writing “Martin and Marilyn,

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

Emmy Predictions 2018: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Last Year’s Winner: Ann Dowd, “The Handmaid’s Tale”

Still Eligible: Yes.

Hot Streak: There hasn’t been a repeat winner in this category since Anna Gunn won in 2013 and 2014 for “Breaking Bad.” Before that, the last back-to-back winner was Blythe Danner for “Huff” in 2005 and 2006.

Fun Fact: For the past four years, at least one show has snagged two nominations in this category. But only one series took home the Emmy (Dowd for “The Handmaid’s Tale”).

Ann Dowd is making quite a case for another Emmy. The actress behind Aunt Lydia on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” remains an unforgettable force in Season 2, and Dowd’s deepening of the character is second to none on television.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of competitors. Thandie Newton is rolling through the second season of “Westworld,” grappling with complex issues of identity as the one woman wrecking ball,

And they’re off! Audience Network’s ‘Mr. Mercedes’ jump-starts 2018 Emmys as first Fyc mailer out of the gate

Audience Network’s latest scripted series “Mr. Mercedes” has jump-started the TV awards season by being the first Emmy Fyc mailer out of the gate. The complete first season was sent out the TV academy membership back on February 6 in an effort to reach voters who may not subscribe to the premium network. In addition to the mailer, Audience Network has also scheduled an Fyc screening and Q&A with select cast members in Los Angeles for Sunday, April 15.

Developed by Emmy fave David E. Kelley (“Big Little Lies,” “Ally McBeal”), “Mr. Mercedes” adapts Stephen King‘s crime novel for the small screen, with Brendan Gleeson playing retired detective Bill Hodges who’s out to find the man (relative newcomer Harry Treadaway) that killed 16 people with a stolen car. Jack Bender (“Lost”) directed most of the episodes and also serves as an executive producer along with Kelley, King, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
