'Orange is the New Black' star Kate Mulgrew on her Emmy nomination and that magical chicken

After 42 years in this crazy acting business, Orange is the New Black‘s Kate Mulgrew has received her first Emmy nomination for her work as Red in the first season of Netflix’s hit show.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Where were you when you found out this morning?
KATE MULGREW:
I was in bed fast asleep.

So this was the perfect way to wake up.
Yeah, it really was. I had taken an Advil PM ’cause I burned my hand on the stove last night. So I was awakened this morning and I thought, “Oh, what’s the news?” And I said, “Oh how great! I’m jumping out of bed; the pain is gone!” [Laughs]

This is such an amazing character. Looking back, what has been one of your favorite moments or scenes to film with her?
There’s a scene in the kitchen where I describe the chicken. I have a dream about the chicken, and I loved this. I just loved the way I describe the chicken, how the chicken looks, its sensibility, its mysteriousness. And in that moment Red, herself, is transformed, and you see not only her wonderful eccentricity, but [also] the depth of her complexity. And you realize that this woman is living on many, many different levels at all times, not the least of which is this [said in character] “mysterious chicken whose power I must have.” READ FULL STORY

Josh Charles on his Emmy nomination -- and the 'Good Wife' Best Drama snub

Josh Charles received his second Best Supporting Actor nomination this morning for playing (the late) Will Gardner on CBS’s The Good Wife. Sick with a cold and cough, he went back to bed after getting up early to let out his dog, Zeus—and learned of his nod when he rolled over and saw a congratulatory email on his iPhone. “Nothing super fancy or exciting, sorry,” he jokes to EW. “I’m really excited about it even if my voice doesn’t sound normal.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Lead and supporting actors don’t have to choose an episode to submit until after they’re nominated. Will you go with “Hitting the Fan”?
Josh Charles: The two episodes that stick out to me, as an actor, would be “Hitting the Fan” and “The Decision Tree.” So one of those, probably. I’ll just have some people who I really trust watch them both and tell me which one they feel is best. Or however that works. READ FULL STORY

Allison Janney talks 'Masters of Sex' and 'Mom' Emmy nods

Allison Janney had a good reason to skip the gym this morning: As she was getting ready to work out, her publicist let her know that she had scored two Emmy nods. One nomination is for her role as a struggling alcoholic looking to reconnect with her daughter in CBS sitcom Mom; the other’s for her guest role as Margaret Scully in the Showtime drama Masters of Sex. “It was a great way to start my day,” Janney told EW.

'Fargo' star Allison Tolman reacts to her first Emmy nomination

Fargo scene-stealer Allison Tolman was the heart—and brains—of FX’s movie-to-TV adaptation. Playing dogged deputy police officer Molly Solverson was Tolman’s first major acting role—and now it’s her first Emmy-nominated role. The 32-year-old is in the running for best supporting actress in a miniseries or movie. Spoiler alert: She’s pretty stoked about the nod.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congrats! Were you awake when the nominations were announced? How did you find out you’ve been shortlisted?
ALLISON TOLMAN: Thank you! It’s awesome that the show is so well-represented in so many categories. I was awake; I didn’t have to wake up much earlier than usual. I was awake and logged in with my cat in my lap. I’m at home in Chicago right now, so it was nice to be able to be home while I got this news, and be in a familiar place with familiar surroundings.

Anna Chlumsky reacts to her Emmy nom, reveals which 'Veep' scene was an accident

Veep‘s Amy had a roller coaster of a year, what with losing (and then winning) the role of Selina’s campaign manager—but for the actress that plays her, things are looking up. We caught up with Chlumsky, nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy for the second year in a row, right after she found out about her nod.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations!
ANNA CHLUMSKY: Thank you very much!

Where were you when you found out this morning?
I was actually about to take a little morning nap, because I had already been up for a few hours with my daughter. I was like, “Oh, do I do yoga, or do I nap, or do I do both?” And so I was planning on doing both, and really, I was just about to put my head on the pillow and then my phone rang.

So now you don’t get to nap, but do you get to do yoga?
I will tonight after rehearsal. This is worth it. [Laughs] READ FULL STORY

Lizzy Caplan talks 'Masters of Sex' Emmy nod, her love for 'Real Housewives'

Lizzy Caplan prepared for today’s Emmys announcement like anyone would: by reading her horoscope. Which didn’t give her the most hope. “They were all bad!” Caplan told EW. “And then I just started laughing and realized, I really need to get a life.”

'Orange Is the New Black' star Uzo Aduba reacts to her first Emmy nomination

When the 2014 Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning, Uzo Aduba was sitting in traffic. But after a phone call from her rep, the Orange is the New Black star realized that she had just earned her first ever Emmy nomination for her work as Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren in the show’s first season. EW caught up with Aduba right after she got the news.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First of all, congratulations!
UZO ADUBA: Oh my goodness, thank you so much!

So where were you when you found out this morning?
I was in traffic. [Laughs] I was in traffic and, true story, I just happened to look down and see my phone ringing and I was like, “Oh it’s my publicist, let me pick up the phone.” I don’t know how long it was ringing because my ear buds were in, and I picked it up, and she and my manager told me. I was like, “Are you kidding?” I couldn’t stop saying, “Are you joking?” And they were like, “We would not joke about this.” READ FULL STORY

Now that the TV season is over, awards season is about to begin. We’ve watched every minute of every episode of the finest shows from the past year to determine the most impressive scene from each series. It was a task as daunting as it was time-consuming (you try to pick just one “best” scene from Breaking Bad, or Game of Thrones), but we came away with our list, and we’re ready for you to disagree with the majority of it.

The clips, and our explanations, are below. Emmy voters, you’ll want to take notes.

Emmy Watch: Maggie Siff talks Tara's park confrontation on 'Sons of Anarchy'

We said it in our recap of Sons of Anarchy‘s season 6 finale, and now we’ll say it again: Every year, EW advocates for Maggie Siff to get an Emmy nomination. We hope this past season’s scene in the park — when Tara is convinced Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is going to kill her, but instead, he decides to set her and their boys free — will finally cinch her one. Here, Siff — a new mom who imagines she’ll “start sniffing around again in the fall” for her next role — talks about that scene, which was named one of the TV season’s 50 Best in the issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands now.

HBO: Why 'Game of Thrones' gets robbed at Emmys

Lannister.jpg

When it comes to the industry’s biggest awards, Game of Thrones is almost always the bridesmaid. The HBO fantasy hit has racked up a hugely impressive 42 prime-time Emmy and Golden Globe nominations across its first three seasons. It’s also won 11 of those awards, mainly for categories like visual effects, make-up, costumes and sound effects. Yet in the major categories — best series, acting, writing and directing — Thrones has taken home just two statues (a Globe and Emmy for Peter Dinklage as best supporting actor).

What gives?

We asked HBO’s programming president Michael Lombardo about this topic during a Thrones interview, and he suggested the show’s fantasy setting and high production values might distract from the talent on display. READ FULL STORY
