The Best Child Actors on TV Right Now – IndieWire Critics Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which child star is giving the best performance on TV today? (Must have appeared in a show that aired in 2017 or is about to air for midseason.)

Soraya Nadia McDonald (@SorayaMcDonald), The Undefeated

Alex Hibbert. The kids in “The Chi” are one of my favorite elements of the show, and Hibbert gives his performances a wonderful, innocent interiority that just draws you in. I was curious to see what his future would be like after “Moonlight.” I’m glad to see he’s playing a kid with normal, relatable kid-like problems (like having a schoolboy crush) while also taking on some serious challenges, again, by witnessing

Can Catherine Zeta-Jones join Triple Crown of acting thanks to Lifetime’s ‘Cocaine Godmother’?

Can Catherine Zeta-Jones join Triple Crown of acting thanks to Lifetime’s ‘Cocaine Godmother’?
The triple crown of acting consists of a rarified group of actors who have won an Oscar, Tony and Emmy. So far more than 20 actors have earned this distinction with such legends as Maggie Smith, Jessica Lange and Al Pacino among them. Oscar and Tony champ Catherine Zeta-Jones has recently begun venturing into television, first with her work on “Feud: Bette and Joan” and now with the current TV movie “Cocaine Godmother,” which aired January 20 on Lifetime. Should this telefilm win acclaim and Zeta-Jones receive awards recognition in the form of an Emmy, that would qualify the Welsh actress for inclusion in the Triple Crown of acting club.

Zeta-Jones plays Griselda Blanco in “Cocaine Godmother,” a real-life key drug dealer in the brutal cocaine trafficking industry. This has been a passion project of Zeta-Jones, which she has tried to get made in various forms for years. She won her Oscar

2018 PGA Awards report: ‘The Shape of Water’ wins Best Picture against tough field of 11 contenders
The 2018 Producers Guild Awards were handed out on Saturday night, January 20. These awards celebrate the best producing achievements in film and television, and the big-screen winners often give us an idea of who will take top honors at the Oscars. Scroll down for our live updating report on the night’s winners and what it means for the awards season to come. Check out the complete list of winners in all 12 categories here.

The very first Best Picture winner at the PGA Awards was “Driving Miss Daisy” in 1990. That film went on to win the top Oscar, and in total 19 out of the PGA’s 28 previous picks have gone on to claim Best Picture honors at the Academy Awards (68%). And in the last 10 years the correlation has been even stronger, with the two groups agreeing eight times (80%). However, the last two years have been anomalies. In 2016 “The Big Short” won

PGA Honorees Sound Off on Risk, Reward and Storytelling

PGA Honorees Sound Off on Risk, Reward and Storytelling
Ava DuVernay, Ryan Murphy, and Charles Roven will all be honored at the Producers Guild Awards on Jan. 20.

Ava DuVernay

Visionary Award

DuVernay, the guild’s Visionary Award honoree, first picked up a movie camera 13 years ago. She was 32.

Since then the L.A. native has completed three narrative features, with the fourth on its way, and two feature-length documentaries, picking up Academy Awards nominations for “Selma” and “13th.” In her spare time she created a television series called “Queen Sugar.” Her upcoming fourth narrative, Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” makes her the first African-American woman to direct a film budgeted above $100 million.

“There was no thought in my head when I started that [my career] would ever become this,” DuVernay says. But all the success in a short period of time has not gone to the filmmaker’s head. In part that’s because DuVernay spent 14 years working as an entertainment publicist.

‘American Crime Story’ Team Responds to Versace Family: ‘We Don’t Make Any Pretense About It Being Authorized’

‘American Crime Story’ Team Responds to Versace Family: ‘We Don’t Make Any Pretense About It Being Authorized’
Ryan Murphy has responded to the Versace family calling his anthology drama “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” a work of fiction, by saying he doesn’t believe that to be true.

“We issued a statement saying that this story is based on Maureen Orth’s book, which is a very celebrated, lauded work of non-fiction that was vetted now for close to 20 years,” Murphy told Variety at the premiere event for the FX anthology drama in Los Angeles, Calif. “That’s really all I have to say about it, other than of course I feel if you’re family is ever portrayed in something, it’s natural to sort of have a ‘Well, let’s wait and see what happens’ [stance].”

Murphy also pointed out that on Sunday Donatella Versace, the fashion icon’s sister and vice president and chief designer of the Versace Group, made a complimentary gesture towards series star Penelope Cruz, who

Netflix has cast Mad Men and Feud actress Kiernan Shipka in the role of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in their untitled Riverdale companion series.

Sabrina Spellman is also described as "an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal

Catherine Zeta-Jones is feeling empowered by the Time's Up movement.

The actress, who took a sheer take on the night's theme of black gowns, spoke with Et's Nancy O'Dell on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards, where she opened up about the importance of women joining forces across the board to effect change.

"This is a celebrating night for women," she added. "When we work together in numbers, strength is in numbers."

‘The Good Fight’ to Tackle Trump Impeachment, Sexual Harassment in Season 2
The Good Fight” is taking on the provocative subject of a possible Trump impeachment in its second season, but in a way that skewers the fever among some Democrats to flip the House and Senate to the blue column and bring down the President.

The CBS All Access drama, which returns March 4, also plans an episode inspired by the sexual assault allegations leveled against now-disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein. The show will examine a reporter’s struggle find an outlet to publish the explosive charges — a nod to the criticism against NBC News for failing get behind the story that Ronan Farrow ultimately published in the New Yorker.

The episode revolves around “sexual charges against a liberal star that you wouldn’t expect to be charged. The lawsuits start to fly even before they broadcast it,” “Good Fight” exec producer Robert King told reporters Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif. Robert

Golden Globe Nominee Jessica Lange on Aging in Hollywood, Feud's Message About Feminism

Golden Globe Nominee Jessica Lange on Aging in Hollywood, Feud's Message About Feminism
At 68 years old, Jessica Lange is seemingly in the prime of her career — but she knows that’s not common in Hollywood.

“Women are viewed as a commodity more so than male actors,” Lange told People in March. “At a certain age women are no longer considered a viable or a valuable part of the community — even if that’s when they may feel like they’re at the top of their game. And that’s not just in Hollywood.”

Lange explored those themes in her TV series Feud: Bette and Joan, in which she starred as aging screen legend

‘The Americans’ Cast and Producers Brace for Emotional Final Season

‘The Americans’ Cast and Producers Brace for Emotional Final Season
Paige Jennings was destined to go into the family business, “The Americans” showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields told reporters Friday as cast members and producers of the beloved FX drama discussed plans for the show’s sixth and final season, which bows March 28.

Weisberg and Fields said they have been planning for some time for Paige (played by Holly Taylor) to follow her mother into the Soviet spy ranks for some time. Her younger brother Henry (played by Keidrich Sellati), however, is another story.

“From the beginning, Paige sort of had her mother’s Russian soul and that was going to work throughout the series and create a certain darkness inside her,” Weisberg, creator of the 1980s-set series starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as covert Soviet spies in Washington, D.C. “But you could feel from the beginning that Henry did not get even the part of his father that had a Russian soul.

Here's an Update on American Horror Story and All the Other Upcoming Ryan Murphy Shows

Here's an Update on American Horror Story and All the Other Upcoming Ryan Murphy Shows
Ryan Murphy is probably the busiest man on all of television.  The executive producer of American Horror Story, American Crime Story, Feud, 911, Pose, Ratched, and probably a few more was on hand during FX's winter press tour for multiple panels for multiple shows, and he even took a second to spill even more on shows he wasn't there to panel. Honestly, we don't know how this man sleeps or has any idea what's going on inside his own head.  To help you (and maybe him) keep track of his many shows both current and future, we've compiled the updates he gave during the 2018 press tour on everything that's in the pipeline.

Ryan Murphy on ‘Katrina,’ ‘Feud’ and ‘American Horror Story’ Season 8
With a lineup of 7 or 8 series currently in development or production, uber-producer Ryan Murphy has more than a full plate. But going forward, he said, he’s going to take his time making sure they’re all in ideal shape. “I’m not going to shoot anything until it’s written, and it’s perfectly cast, and I get great number twos in terms of showrunners and directors,” he told reporters at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena.

In the era of Peak TV and streaming, he said it’s tempting to rush projects through, and Murphy — who has been on hand to present three series (“Pose,” “9-1-1” and “American Crime Story: Versace”) admitted that he wasn’t happy with the first iteration of “American Crime Story: Katrina,” which is slated as the next installment in that limited series franchise. “I still had a passion for the story, but it wasn
