Seth Meyers on hosting the Emmys: 'We're going to try to bring a little New York to L.A.'

Seth Meyers usually plays host to a TV star or two each night on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers. But on Monday, he’ll play host to hundreds of them—and all of tube-obsessed America—as he emcees the small screen’s biggest night: The Emmys, which air on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.

On a scale of one to 10, how pants-wetting nervous will Meyers be when he walks out on stage at the Nokia Theatre? “Oh, I think I‘ll be high 9s. But I’m happy it’s the same physical space as the ESPYs,” says Meyers, who hosted the sports awards show in 2011. “For me, the most nerve-racking is the first time in a space. It’s a different audience and a different set, but at least down in the caverns of the building, the hallways are the same. And I know where the bathroom is, so that’s good.”

EW spoke with the former SNL head writer and Weekend Update anchor about what to expect when he goes live from L.A. on Emmy night. (Fans of Game of Thrones and other quality shows: Catch up on unwatched episodes before tuning in. Or reading on.) READ FULL STORY

Mike Judge on 'Silicon Valley' Emmy nods and dreams that (thankfully) don't come true

Mike-Judge.jpg

Before creating Silicon Valley— the new HBO comedy that Thursday morning garnered five Emmy nominations—Mike Judge says he “hadn’t had a hit in awhile.” Specifically, he was referring to a pair of high-profile 2009 projects: the ABC animated series The Goode Family and the Jason Bateman-led feature film Extract, both of which were received unenthusiastically by audiences. Despite those hiccups, flops have been the exception rather than the rule for the creator of Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, Office Space, and Idiocracy. So when it was announced that Silicon Valley was up for Emmys in Best Comedy, Best Directing and Best Writing (as well as Art Direction and Main Title Design), it wasn’t just appropriate recognition for a deserving show: It was a restoration of order. Shortly after the nominations were announced, Judge spoke with EW about his latest hit.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations on the nominations. Where were you when you got word?
MIKE JUDGE: I was in bed, and I had just had a very realistic dream that we got zero nominations. In it, I was in the office and we were all kind of bummed but not really talking about it. Then I woke up—my son was laughing hysterically in his sleep—and I remembered someone saying they were announcing the nominees at 5:30a.m. [PST]. I looked at the clock and it was around 5. I went back to sleep and had another dream that we’d lost. I woke up from that dream and it was 5:45, but that was actually just a dream about waking up. Then I woke up for real at 5:40, and there were a bunch of messages on my phone. READ FULL STORY

Christine Baranski also laments that 'Good Wife' Best Drama snub

The Good Wife started production on season 6 Thursday, but since Christine Baranski wasn’t on the call sheet, she distracted herself that morning with coffee and a swim as the Emmy nominations were announced. “One doesn’t want to invest too much in it, but that said, when you find out that you’ve got a nomination, it’s always a wonderful thing and a great privilege,” the 12-time nominee says. With one win for Cybill, this is her fifth consecutive nomination for The Good Wife. “I always get the biggest kick to hear I’m in a category with Maggie Smith,” she says. “It just kind of blows my mind.”

Still, the day is a little bittersweet, Baranski admits. “The anticipation, for me, was my really great hope that the show would be recognized and get a nomination this year, because I thought, as so many people did, that it was an extraordinary year for the show. The Kings, Robert and Michelle, and our writers did an extraordinary job of crafting season 5 and taking the show in that brave place—so much drama, so much emotion, so much craftsmanship went into those 22 episodes. The audience was really invested in it,” she says. “We’ve got three actors with nominations [including supporting actor Josh Charles and guest actor Dylan Baker], and that’s largely because we’re just given such great writing. I don’t follow Twitter or anything,” she continues, with a laugh, “but I guess the show’s getting a lot of press for being snubbed.” READ FULL STORY

Jim Parsons on Emmy nods and 'Big Bang Theory' bobbleheads: 'What the hell is going on?'

Jim Parsons usually advises other potential Emmy nominees to sleep in the morning of the announcement. “It’s the only way to do it,” he told EW. Except he couldn’t follow his own advice this morning—he had a 6:30 a.m. appointment, so he was up anyway.

Is 'True Detective' worthy? 'Modern Family,' again? The critics react to 2014's Emmy nods

Emmy-noms.jpg

MELISSA MAERZ: Jeff,

When the Emmy nominations were announced this morning, I was sitting at my desk, shouting, “Hodor! Hodor! Hodor!” Game of Thrones dominated with 19 nominations! Hot pie for everyone! I’d quibble with the fact that Noah Hawley’s fantastic update of Fargo didn’t get a best drama nod, especially since it was the runner-up with 18 nominations, and The Good Wife was unjustly ignored in that category, coming off its best season ever—it might be the only network drama that I truly loved—but the rest of the list was pretty solid. Among the smartest choices made in the best drama category: refusing to forget that Breaking Bad was and will always be one of the best TV shows of all time; leaving that mess of a Homeland season off that list (somewhere, Dana Brody is furrowing her brow); recognizing that House of Cards just keeps getting better and better as Frank Underwood gets worse and worse; and picking the right underdog, PBS, to fight in the battle against cable with Downton Abbey.

Here is my only real complaint, and I know I’m in the minority here: I was really, deeply disappointed by True Detective and don’t think it deserves a best drama nod. Don’t get me wrong: I was totally captivated by the first four episodes, and Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey both deserve their acting nods. Plus, the show deserves some kind of diamond-encrusted, deer-antler trophy for that spectacular six-minute tracking shot alone. But am I the only one who thought the story completely fell apart in the second half? The unreliable narrator device—which could’ve made for real suspense and second-guessing about who these two detectives really are and what their motives might be—ultimately  lead nowhere beyond one police cover-up. The central mystery was solved in a way that felt random. Too many Easter eggs ended up being MacGuffins. And I know people are really going to throw tomatoes at me here, but that final speech about the lying there and gazing up at the stars? So corny. Leave the cosmos-pondering to Neil deGrasse Tyson, guys.

What did you think of the drama nominations?

Tony Hale on his Emmy nomination and what's really in Gary's bag

Tony Hale, who plays Gary on HBO’s critically acclaimed Veep, is on a roll: He received his second Emmy nomination for supporting actor in a comedy series early this morning. (Hale won in this category for Veep last year.) Hale joins his costars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Anna Chlumsky, who were nominated for lead actress in a comedy series and supporting actress in a comedy series, respectively; their show was also nominated for outstanding comedy series. We last saw Gary going to the White House alongside Selena, the newly instated president of the United States. Here, Hale talks about this crowning achievement and other standout moments from the season (hint: they squeak).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You won the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor for Veep last year, and here you are nominated again in the same category.
TONY HALE: It’s awesome. Having been in the business for 20 years, I’m just so thankful to have a gig. I’ve spent years just looking for gigs, so to be on a list like this is kind of overwhelming. READ FULL STORY

How Colin Hanks celebrated his 'Fargo' Emmy nod: Playing Princesses and Castles

Colin Hanks was really hoping his FX drama Fargo would receive an Emmy nomination. It ended up getting 18, including a nod for the 36-year-old, who was recognized for his performance as conflicted cop Gus Grimly in the best supporting actor in a miniseries category. That one was a bit of a surprise, he admits.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congrats! How did you find out about the nomination? Were you even awake?
COLIN HANKS: No, no, I was asleep. I had woken up around 5:20 and sort of said, “Oh, okay, no phone calls. Well, I’m gonna go back to sleep,” ’cause in my mind they would just announce all of [the nominations] at once at 5:15. [Laughs] So I was like, “Oh, didn’t happen. Too bad,” and sort of went back to sleep, totally content. And then around 30 minutes later or so the phone rang and I just went, “Well, no one would be calling around this time unless it did actually happen.” I answered the phone and all I heard was screaming. And it was good screams. So it’s been a very surprising but very good morning.

Who were the screams coming from?
My publicist and my manager. My team of all-stars.

Who was the first person you then told about the good news?
Well really, I mean at that time on the West Coast, there’s really no one to tell. Obviously my wife was with me; as soon as the phone rang she woke up. But actually the first person I talked to, I called Allison [Tolman]. ‘Cause she’s in Chicago and I knew that she would be awake by that point, just based on time difference alone. And I had a nice, funny conversation with her about how surreal this all is and how happy I am for her and how proud I am of her. This whole experience has been so great, and Allison is so awesome. I called her and wanted to tell her how much I love her and how happy I am. Then all the other news has trickled in, I talked with Noah [Hawley, creator] and he filled me in on just how many nominations the show got, which is fantastic and incredible. And I’m really glad that a lot of people on the show are being recognized for it, ’cause it was a lot of hard work up there in minus-35 degree temperatures in Calgary, Alberta. READ FULL STORY
