'Hannibal' wins the Best Drama EWwy, creator Bryan Fuller thanks fans

It was a decisive win for NBC’s Hannibal, earning the title of Best Drama Series in the 2014 EWwys—EW.com’s 7th annual awards for the Emmy-snubbed—with roughly 40 percent of the vote.

“We are in such a wonderful age where fans now have a face thanks to social media, and they have rallied around Hannibal with a Fannibal circle of protection, and love, and light,” creator Bryan Fuller told EW Radio while accepting the honor. “So grateful for them supporting the cannibal in every way that they do.”

As Fuller shared at Comic-Con, the season 3 premiere may feel like a pilot for a new show starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson as “a murder couple.” The action will jump ahead roughly eight months, with Fuller earmarking the season’s fourth episode to reveal everything that happened during that time span.

He also noted that unlike Best Actress in a Comedy winner Emmy Rossum (Shameless), who said she’d be placing her EWwy trophy on the back of the toilet in her guest bathroom, his will go over his headboard. READ FULL STORY

Pablo Schreiber, Carrie Preston, Pedro Pascal accept guest EWwys

New this year to the EWwys, EW.com’s annual reader-voted awards for the Emmy-snubbed, are guest actor and guest actress categories. We’ve already posted audio of Elizabeth Banks phoning EW Radio to accept Best Guest Actress in a Comedy for her return to Modern Family (hear it here), but the other winners—The Good Wife‘s Carrie Preston, Orange is the New Black‘s Pablo Schreiber, and Game of Thrones‘ Pedro Pascal—were equally as entertaining when they dialed.

The closest race in the 2014 EWwys was Best Guest Actress in a Drama: Preston topped Lisa Kudrow (Scandal) by just 37 votes. The best part about Preston’s call? She was dressed as Elsbeth Tascioni, taking a break during a wardrobe fitting to reprise her winning role yet again. She also lightheartedly lamented not being able to keep all the True Blood souvenirs she’d wanted. READ FULL STORY

Adam Scott, 'Drunk History' co-creator Derek Waters accept their EWwys

Parks and Recreation scored a second consecutive win for best comedy series in the 2014 EWwys, EW‘s annual reader-voted awards for the Emmy-snubbed. But more importantly, after finishing as runner-up in the best actor in a comedy race the last two years, the show’s leading man, Adam Scott, finally earned a golden ewe statue of his very own. He phoned in to EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) Monday to accept the honor during our live awards broadcast and did his best not to reveal anything about Parks and Rec‘s final season, which began shooting just last week. “We’ve been sworn to secrecy about everything,” he says. “I will say there are a lot of big differences, a lot of little ones… I would hate to spoil anything. But Cones of Dunshire may come into play in the near future in the three-year time jump.” Hey, that’s something.

Wrapping the NBC comedy after seven seasons is the right move, but also bitter-sweet, Scott says. “It’s the seventh season of a TV show, everyone still loves each other, and the material is still great, so why not go out while it’s all still operating at a high level? I’m glad that the show has not turned a corner where we don’t feel good about what we’re doing. We’re all still really engaged and having a great time, so why not end it there rather than when everyone’s fried and no one cares anymore, [which] just never happened with this show,” he says. “Everyone’s still good friends and everything, so I think we’ll all remain friends, we just won’t be doing a show together anymore—which is kinda sad and kinda nice, as well, knowing that it was still good when we finished.” READ FULL STORY

Listen to Emmy Rossum, Eden Sher, Elizabeth Banks accept their EWwys

Shameless‘ Emmy Rossum, The Middle‘s Eden Sher, and Modern Family guest star Elizabeth Banks are the reigning queens of comedy—at least according to EWwy voters, who’ve crowned them best actress, best supporting actress, and best guest actress, respectively, in our 7th Annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy-snubbed. All three phoned in to EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) on Aug. 18, when the winners were announced live. Listen to their full interviews below.

In her clip, Rossum hatches plans to taunt Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson—fellow best actress nominees who are now too hot to write a movie for her—and to place her golden ewe statue on the back of the toilet in her guest bathroom so people can see it. In addition to looking ahead to season 5, she details the lengths to which Showtime went to keep the return of Justin Chatwin in Shameless‘ season 4 finale a secret from even her. “I had been campaigning for the last few seasons for him to come back. I didn’t feel like the story was properly tied up. I didn’t see the episode before it aired, and I was on a road trip, and my phone started blowing up, and my mom calls me, and she’s like, ‘He’s alive!’” Rossum says. “I was like, ‘What are you talking about? I’m somewhere in Arizona.’ She’s like, ‘He’s in the show!’ I had no idea what she was talking about. They had flown Justin Chatwin to Chicago, put him in a different hotel, put him with a different crew, different hair and makeup team, and done this whole thing covert. And then the president of the network sent me an email Sunday night like, ‘Gotcha!’”  READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black' co-stars Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris accept EWwys

The winners of the 7th Annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy-snubbed were announced live Aug. 18 on EW Radio, and for the second year, the best actress in a drama category boasted the largest margin of victory. In 2013, Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany won with 43 percent of the vote; this year, 61 percent of readers cast their ballots for her. “I think people have been bribed, or it’s been rigged somehow. That’s ridiculous. That’s not right,” a grateful Maslany joked when she phoned in to accept the honor and was reminded that fellow nominees included Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal and Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga. “I’m just like, Katey Sagal, that’s crazy. That’s totally insane. Vera Farmiga—I mean, give me a break. That’s crazy.”

Maslany also talked about Orphan Black‘s emotional panel at Comic-Con (“The Clone Club community is such a supportive one and so lovely and so accepting—it’s the greatest gift to know that the show allows for a community like that”) and getting the chance to drive her first golf cart at Comic-Con as well (“It was one of my favorites moments in my life—it was pretty amazing”). The full interview is below.

Her co-star Jordan Gavaris (Felix) picked up his first EWwy for best supporting actor in a drama and delivered the awards’ most earnest acceptance. “I’m stunned. This is a wild, wild honor to even be in a category with some of these actors: Norman Reedus, Peter Sarsgaard, my god. I don’t win anything in life, you know what I mean. I was, like, the awkward kid who didn’t go to prom, but I did—nobody noticed though,” he said, laughing.  READ FULL STORY
