‘Game of Thrones’ is on the verge of becoming the biggest loser in this Emmy category

‘Game of Thrones’ is on the verge of becoming the biggest loser in this Emmy category
Game of Thrones” has a bunch of Emmy records to its name — most wins by a primetime series, most wins by a series in a single year, most nominations for a drama, most nominations for a drama in a single year, to name a few — but it might add another one in September that it, safe to say, definitely does not want: most Best Drama Supporting Actress nominations without a win.

Thanks to its quadruple bids for Gwendoline Christie, Lena Headey, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams, “Thrones” has topped out at 12 nominations in this category, breaking down to five for Headey, three for Emilia Clarke (now in lead), two for Williams, and one each for Christie and Turner. That’s the second most nominations for a show in drama supporting actress behind “Hill Street Blues,” which bagged 13. But unlike “Hill Street Blues,” which won for Alfre Woodard and Betty Thomas,

Couple goals: Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance could become the latest Emmy-winning spouses

Couple goals: Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance could become the latest Emmy-winning spouses
It might be hard to believe, but Angela Bassett has never won an Emmy before. She’s now her fifth nomination after making the Best Narrator lineup for her work on Nat Geo’s “The Flood.” If she prevails, not only will she get her first statuette, but she and husband Courtney B. Vance will join the club of Emmy-winning married couples.

Vance has a perfect record at the Emmys, converting his first nomination into a win in 2016 in Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor for his performance as Johnnie Cochran on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” He gave a brief but memorable speech in which he dedicated the award to his wife of now nearly 22 years — or “the woman that rocks my chain.” #truelove

Bassett’s previous nominations were for “The Rosa Parks Story”, “American Horror Story: Coven”, “American Horror Story: Freak Show” and “Master of None”. In “The Flood,

Jason Momoa Loves the Idea of a Twins Remake Co-Starring Peter Dinklage

Jason Momoa Loves the Idea of a Twins Remake Co-Starring Peter Dinklage
I don't know about you, but the idea of seeing Game of Thrones stars Jason Momoa and Peter Dinklage join forces for a remake of Twins sounds like good times to me. Let me make sure and point out right up front here today that this is not in any way official news, this is merely a fun story that occurred the other day. You see what had happened was Momoa was recently speaking at Celebrity Fan Fest, and when a fan pitched the idea of the Twins remake with Peter Dinklage, Momoa answered with this.

"F--kin' tell me where to sign! Absolutely. That'd be amazing. I love that movie."

And boom! There you go. Jason Momoa is more than down for starring in a remake of the classic '80s buddy comedy. Now we just need to have someone track this Peter Dinklage character down and make sure he's just as enthusiastic.

Danny DeVito Offers Twins 2 Update, Says Triplets Still Needs a Script

Danny DeVito Offers Twins 2 Update, Says Triplets Still Needs a Script
One of the most inventive comedies of all time is director Ivan Reitman's 1988 buddy adventure Twins starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito as - you guessed it - twins separated at birth. The movie is one of the great examples of a killer high-concept idea, and a sequel seemed like a given. But it never happened. That said, is there still a chance another film may come to fruition? Well, while out and about promoting Tim Burton's recent live-action remake of the Disney classic Dumbo co-star Danny DeVito talked a bit about the rumors circling a possible sequel Triplets co-starring Eddie Murphy.

Danny DeVito says this.

"Everybody would be up for it. The main thing is you have to have a screenplay. We're looking. We're figuring it out."

So what could the film be? There have been rumors flying back and forth for years now that a potential

Don't Mess With Mr. Feeny: William Daniels Stops a Burglary Attempt at His Home

  • Popsugar
Cory Matthews could never get anything past Mr. Feeny, and apparently a burglar couldn't, either. William Daniels, the 91-year-old actor best known for playing Mr. Feeny on Boy Meets World, stopped an attempted burglary at his San Fernando Valley home last Saturday. According to ABC7, an intruder tried to force their way into the home that Daniels shares with his 89-year-old wife, Bonnie Bartlett. Daniels reportedly ended up scaring the burglar off by switching on a light before things escalated.

"Someone tried to break into the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Daniels on Saturday evening," Daniels's rep confirmed to People. "Luckily, Mr. Daniels was able to frighten away the person and the Lapd quickly responded. They are both well. Mr. Daniels thanks all his fans for their concern."

Even though we're all happy to hear that this encounter didn't go awry, it goes without saying that fans are still pretty shook right now.

Emmy episode analysis: Ann Dowd (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) rings the bell in ‘June’

Emmy episode analysis: Ann Dowd (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) rings the bell in ‘June’
Ann Dowd finally received the recognition she long deserved last year when she won the Emmy for Best Drama Supporting Actress for her memorable performance as Aunt Lydia on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” For her second consecutive Emmy nomination she went with the Season 2 opener “June.”

The series picked up where it left off with the handmaids rounded up and forced to endure a fake hanging. Aunt Lydia then makes her grand appearance — if you’re a villain this is how you make an entrance! As she’s punishing the handmaids by making them hold rocks in the rain she learns that Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is pregnant. She demands the ladies join her in chanting, “Praise Be!­­”

Praise be! Will Ann Dowd (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) be 7th person to win back-to-back Emmys as Best Drama Supporting Actress?

Praise be! Will Ann Dowd (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) be 7th person to win back-to-back Emmys as Best Drama Supporting Actress?
Last year, Ann Dowd’s Emmy win for “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” first season was one of the biggest surprises of the evening as Thandie Newton (“Westworld”) seemed to be the frontrunner to win. Dowd was able to overcome vote splitting with her co-star Samira Wiley, but it remains unclear whether she will be able to overcome two of her co-stars this year. This time around, she is up against Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”), Alexis Bledel (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Lena Headey (“Game of Thrones”), Vanessa Kirby (“The Crown”), Yvonne Strahovski (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and Newton.

If Dowd prevails, she’ll be the seventh in Best Drama Supporting Actress to win back-to-back Emmys, joining Ellen Corby, Nancy Marchand, Bonnie Bartlett, Allison Janney, Blythe Danner and Anna Gunn.

Will Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake become the latest married couple to win acting Emmys?

Will Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake become the latest married couple to win acting Emmys?
Jessica Biel received her first career Emmy nomination last week, for Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actress for “The Sinner,” and her husband Justin Timberlake was just as pumped as she was. He tweeted his excitement and commented on her Instagram post. Proud hubby all around. And if Biel takes home the gold, she and Timberlake will join a long line of married couples who’ve won acting Emmys.

A four-time winner, Timberlake has “Saturday Night Live” to thank for all his statuettes. He won two for songwriting (“Dick in a Box” in 2007 and his 2011 monologue) and two for Best Comedy Guest Actor, in 2009 and 2011. He has an addition guest nomination for “SNL” and three other songwriting nominations, two for “SNL” and one for the 2008 ESPYs. Too bad he didn’t host “SNL” last season because then he and Biel could’ve been nominees in the same year (you know

Speaking to Business Insider, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will return to reprise the role of Julius in the sequel, said that Triplets, is set to have its screenplay locked down in two weeks, and a shoot is already set for 2018. More on the Triplets shooting details below.

'Boy Meets World's William Daniels Gets Candid About Being a Victim of Child Abuse in New Memoir

'Boy Meets World's William Daniels Gets Candid About Being a Victim of Child Abuse in New Memoir
Actor William Daniels is opening up about being the victim of child abuse.

The two-time Emmy winner -- best known for playing kindhearted teacher Mr. Feeny on the '90s sitcom Boy Meets World and brilliant surgeon Dr. Mark Craig on the '80s medical drama St. Elsewhere -- writes in his new memoir that he didn't realize he'd suffered from child abuse until he was an adult.

According to the 89-year-old actor, he was forced into becoming a child actor by his mother, who pushed him into auditioning for roles at a very young age, and was made to sing, dance and act alongside his sisters, Jacqueline and Carol, for hours on end without having any say in the matter.

'Twins' Sequel 'Triplets' Gets Delayed

'Twins' Sequel 'Triplets' Gets Delayed
Back in November 2012, Universal Pictures hired actor/screenwriter Josh Gad and his partner Ryan Dixon to pen the screenplay for the long-awaited Twins sequel entitled Triplets. We haven't heard anything about the project since then, but the comedy will bring back Twins stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, with Eddie Murphy joining the cast as the brothers' long-lost triplet. Josh Gad held a Reddit Ama session yesterday for his new comedy The Wedding Ringer, in theaters next weekend, where he revealed that the Triplets script is done, but Universal apparently is contemplating whether or not to move forward with the follow-up.

"Uh, you know... the script is actually done. Everybody agrees that it's great. We wound up doing 2 drafts. Universal, I think, hit the pause button temporarily for whatever reason - internally I think they are trying to figure out if they want to do a sequel or not. I
