Just days away from beginning production on Season 2 of BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” Sandra Oh was reviewing script drafts at her London flat the moment she made Emmy history.

Her part in the thriller is her first headlining role, and it yielded her first lead actress in a drama nod when Emmy nominations...

Emmy voters remembered how much they loved Tatiana Maslany and Ted Danson, didn’t have much patience for “Twin Peaks” and finally embraced Trevor Noah’s vision for “The Daily Show.”

Yes, Emmy nominations day wouldn’t be complete without the annual airing of grievances, globally trademarked as Snubs...

Five first-year TV shows earned Emmy nominations last year for best drama series, offering a rare, almost revolutionary jolt of change to a set of awards that, over the years, have celebrated monotony and excellence in equal measure.

This being the Emmys, all five of those series — “The Handmaid’s...

“American Crime Story,” one of the anthology series from Ryan Murphy’s oeuvre, had a splashy launch in 2016 with its focus on the highly visible O.J. Simpson murder trial — its review of charged, prescient themes like systemic racism, sexism and media culture translated into ratings success and...

Two years ago, Jessica Biel was raising her baby boy with husband Justin Timberlake in their Hollywood Hills home when the actress got hooked on a book. Universal Cable Productions sent her a thriller by German crime novelist Petra Hammesfahr, and once Biel started reading “The Sinner,” she couldn't...

"Late Night" host Seth Meyers may have exited his home of nearly 13 years, "Saturday Night Live," four years ago, but a quick peep into his office proves that he's brought a lot of memories of those years with him. Meyers' modest corner space on 30 Rock's eighth floor is rife with show props and...

For Jared Harris, star of AMC’s “The Terror,” horror doesn’t have to involve a serial killer or supernatural beings. The 10-episode limited series, which follows the crews of two Royal Navy ships that become stuck in the ice while looking for the Northwest Passage, reflects a different sort of...

It would be easy to dismiss Paramount Network's "Waco" miniseries as old news: After all, what could a 1993 standoff between FBI agents and religious leader David Koresh tell us about today? Turns out, quite a lot, particularly with Michael Shannon (as FBI negotiator Gary Noesner) and Taylor Kitsch...

The 1992 Merchant Ivory film “Howards End,” adapted from the E.M. Forster novel, won three Oscars, including one for leading lady Emma Thompson. So pity the actress who would attempt to tackle the same role a quarter-century later, right? Not necessarily. When “Howards End” returned on the Starz...

“Big Little Lies” and “Feud: Bette and Joan” made the limited series Emmy categories the races to watch last year, offering a wealth of first-rate acting and entertaining and intimate moments. This year’s races don’t quite offer the same appeal, though my dream — and, yeah, it’s a surreal one containing...

“Twin Peaks” true believers expecting to see Kyle MacLachlan’s Special Agent Dale Cooper ordering up a mess of pie and damn fine coffee in the show’s limited-series return had to be confounded as MacLachlan spent most of the season’s 18 episodes playing a variation of Cooper — the catatonic Dougie...

It's been three years since "Downton Abbey" signed off and Michelle Dockery went from being Lady Mary to an actress who needed her next gig. Fortunately, two came along in short order: TNT's "Good Behavior," which wrapped its second season in December with no word yet as to a third, and Netflix's...

When Scott Frank finished writing "Minority Report" in 2002, he dropped a show biz bombshell that took 15 years to detonate. "I remember telling my poor agent at the time, 'I'm going to write an original on spec,' and she said, 'Anything, as long as it's not a western,’" Frank recalls. "I just...

Emmy voting began this week and as you’re reading this, Television Academy members are probably dutifully checking off the usual suspects — many deserving (Elisabeth Moss, Tracee Ellis Ross), others (Bill Maher) not so much — until voting closes June 25.

This era of Peak TV offers so many choices,...

In 2015, the young South African comic and television personality Trevor Noah took on one of the true good news/bad news gigs in entertainment. The good news: He went from obscurity in America to hosting his own national show, inheriting the infrastructure and audience of a popular program. The...

“Saturday Night Live” earned a show-record 22 Emmy nominations last year for its 42nd season, winning eight, including variety sketch series. But its ratings tumbled this year — even Donald Trump seems to have stopped hate-watching it. Still, even with “Portlandia” bidding farewell with a sweet,...

NBC's "Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert!," which broadcast the 1970 rock opera musical by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber from the Armory theater in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on Easter Sunday, was by all rights a success.

Visually ambitious (if sometimes audio-challenged, thanks to an overenthusiastic...

Laura Dern’s many high-profile projects in the last couple of years include a “Star Wars” film, the “Twin Peaks” revival, and the everything-winning “Big Little Lies” (now shooting Season 2). But a small movie, “The Tale,” may be the hardest hitting of them all. The HBO acquisition is the narrative...

It’s a Sunday and Michael B. Jordan is in the back seat of a town car, driving to New York for a photo shoot on his day off from shooting “Creed II.” While he’s in the city, he might stop by a favorite restaurant for a quick bite — the film’s boxing scenes were shot weeks ago, so he can dial back...

“Wild Wild Country” tells a tale of sex, drugs, Rolls-Royces, religious fervor, attempted assassinations and bio-terror attacks that would have seemed preposterous on a fictional show. As a documentary series, it struck such a cultural nerve that it even inspired a “Saturday Night Live” skit.
