Emmy Video: As the 'Lost' boys say goodbye, Damon Lindelof puts the blame on Carlton Cuse

For me, the Emmys meant a paid vacation to L.A. and a chance to score as much swag as I could fit into a carry-on. But for the Lost gang, it meant a last chance to say goodbye, to the show and each other. Somehow, though, when I spoke with exec producer Damon Lindelof, Terry O’Quinn, Nestor Carbonell and Jorge Garcia, they managed to hold back the tears. Maybe that’s because O’Quinn distracted himself by playing coy about his bromance with Michael Emerson and their (hush-hush, don’t-say-it-out-loud) hopes to reteam on screen; Carbonell had Peter O’Toole on the brain (let him explain); Garcia was thinking up a lovely message for the haters who dissed the finale; and Lindelof… well, he went back and re-solved “the Walt problem” all over again, then revealed that he blames partner-in-crime Carlton Cuse for… Oh, right. He can tell you himself, and does just that in the video after the jump. READ FULL STORY

EW Emmy party video: 'Lost' nominee Michael Emerson responds to 'Office' gossip

emerson-240.jpgThe short list of possible successors to Steve Carell’s Office throne seems to get longer with each passing day, but one name has emerged as the clear choice among fans and professional TV watchers alike: Michael Emerson. And yes, the Lost Emmy nominee has heard the talk. Even better, he’s interested in the job—and he told me so at Entertainment Weekly‘s pre-Emmy bash last night. Emerson also weighed in on the recently released Ben-centric Lost epilogue and the possibility of joining his real-life bride Carrie Preston on True Blood. “I could play the mild-mannered accountant that gets torn limb by limb by supernatural beings,” he suggested. “People could pick up my gooey mess and put it in a bowl.”

Ask Ausiello: Spoilers on 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Castle,' 'Burn Notice,' 'HIMYM,' and more!

Question: Any Glee scoop? —Ines
Ausiello:
I’m hearing a major character (a series regular!) will find himself/herself in a literal life-and-death situation in this season’s third episode. In possibly related news (I say possibly because I honest-to-goodness don’t know), Chris Colfer’s Emmy-nominated TV dad Mike O’Malley tells us that episode 3 will be “another emotional, emotional episode” for father and son. The actor goes on to hint that the show will revisit the complicated dynamic between Burt and Kurt’s crush, Finn. “The last time I was on the show, [Burt] threw Finn out of the house. There [may] be some resolution there. One of the things I think is really important in life and for human beings is to forgive and be able to rise up from our mistakes. I’m hoping that Finn and Burt are able to cross that chasm.”

Question: I seem to recall you said that Chord Overstreet (a.k.a. Glee‘s newest stud) wouldn’t turn out to be Kurt’s new boyfriend. Jane Lynch tells it differently. —Ashley
Ausiello:
Actually, Jane Lynch tells it exactly the same way I did. Snap.

Question: Will Glee ever cast Rachel’s “two gay dads”? Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick are my top picks! —Kim L
Ausiello:
Series creator Ryan Murphy sounds doubtful. Though “people always ask me to do that…I don’t know that we ever will.” Maybe he’ll go with Lea Michele’s idea. Says the boss, she suggested “we see them in season 3, like a shot of Elton John cheering her on in an audience. I haven’t decided how I’m going to do that.” READ FULL STORY

Emmys 2010: How 'Lost,' 'Mad Men,' 'Glee' and 'Modern Family' will go after the gold

Will the pilot and Madonna episodes be enough to convince voters that Glee was the funniest show last season? We found out what episodes the shows are submitting for Emmy night’s biggest categories on Aug. 29. But first, know this: a reported 300 or so members of the TV Academy serve as judges for the two categories, though they don’t see all the episodes submitted for consideration. Six are handed over from each show, and then the judges are separated into three groups, each receiving two episodes (the show producers actually choose the pairings).

Do the voters take the time to watch all of the pairings? We sure hope so. Here are all the submissions: READ FULL STORY

Emmy predix: Who will win best guest actor/actress in comedy/drama

ausiello-predixImage Credit: Michael Yarish/Fox; Dana Edelson/NBC; Randy Tepper/Showtime;The proliferation of stunt casting has turned the typically mundane guest-acting races into major Emmy spectacles.

Exclusive 'V' video: Elizabeth Mitchell and cast on premiere's 'big twist' and 'huge winter cliff-hanger'

elizabeth-mitchell“Juliet did it!” exclaimed Lost star-turned-V heroine Elizabeth Mitchell at the outset of our interview over the weekend at Comic-Con. To what was she referring?

Emmys predix: Who will win best lead and supporting actor in a drama?

emmy-drama-actorsImage Credit: Bob D'Amico/ABC; Danny Feld; AMC; Justin Stephens/NBCNow that the Emmy nominations have been announced, it’s time to get down to the business of predicting who will emerge victorious on Aug. 29. Each week between now and Emmy night, I’ll be taking a closer look at the major categories and singling out the frontrunners, the dark horses, and — because my bitterness knows no expiration date — the most unforgivable snubs. (During this time, my esteemed colleagues Lynette Rice and Ken Tucker will also be offering their kudos insight as well.) First up: Outstanding Lead and Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

'Lost' earns 12 Emmy nominations, including nods for finale

lost-the-endImage Credit: Mario Perez/ABCThe executive producers of Lost still aren’t ready to reflect creatively on the drama’s two-and-a-half-hour finale (as if they ever plan to), but they had plenty to say about the 12 Emmy nominations it received today from the TV Academy. Besides a much-anticipated nomination for Outstanding Drama, the series also earned nods for stars Matthew Fox, Terry O’Quinn, Michael Emerson, and Elizabeth Mitchell. The finale — which was simply titled “The End” — also earned nominations in the writing, directing, music, and editing categories.

“As storytellers, you rarely get to end a story on your own terms,” executive producer Carlton Cuse tells EW. “Most shows kind of fade away or drop dead. We finished our story on our terms. Let’s face it, there were very high expectations for how Lost should end, and for us, it was enormously gratifying that we were recognized for doing a reasonably good job of ending the show.”

Executive Producer Damon Lindelof was particularly surprised by the wave of emotion he felt when Lost was announced as a contender for Outstanding Drama. “I basically started to weep,” he told EW. READ FULL STORY

'Lost': Will Emmy voters give it a fond farewell?

lost-24Add this to the many questions left unanswered about Lost: Will Emmy honor the ABC drama for its final season? Unfortunately, there are no axioms to suggest that Emmy voters have soft spots in their hearts for groundbreaking and/or critically beloved shows that end their runs on broadcast or cable TV. For every Everybody Loves Raymond and The Sopranos (both of which won Emmys in their final seasons), there are many more shows that did not win the sentimental vote for Outstanding Drama or Outstanding Comedy after their curtain calls.

Nobody was surprised when the last seasons of, say, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Gilmore Girls or even Battlestar Galactica didn’t earn Emmy nods; they weren’t as strong as previous seasons and the voters always ignored them when it came to the major categories, anyway. But when gold-standard dramas like The Wire and The Shield – two critically acclaimed shows that produced stellar final years  — get the shaft, then it certainly provokes concern that maybe Emmy voters aren’t as in tune to good TV as we’d like to think. (Both dramas failed to ever earn nods in the Outstanding Drama category during their runs, though Michael Chiklis won a statue after his first year on the FX cop show while the HBO series got noms for writing.)

Another show facing the sentimental vote question is 24. READ FULL STORY
