Hoeveel van u gunsteling hoëregisseurs drink elke dag hul gewig in koffie, en hoeveel van hulle verkies tee?

Dink u dat u oggendkoffie die bron van u kreatiwiteit is? Bel Stephen Spielberg.

In 'n opname van sommige van Hollywood se mees prominente regisseurs, het die tydskrif Empire filmmakers soos David Fincher (Weg Meisie, Die meisie met die draak -tatoeëring) Joss Whedon (The Avengers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) en Christopher Nolan (Oprigting, Die Donker nag trilogie) oor hul koffiegewoontes op stel, en veral een antwoord was te skokkend om nie te deel nie.

Steven Spielberg - die regisseur van films soos Maak ontmoetings van die derde soort, Kake, Jurassic Park, en Saving Private Ryan - het blykbaar geen koffie nodig om kreatief of gefokus te bly nie. Trouens, hy het aan Empire gesê: 'Ek het nog nooit in my lewe 'n koppie koffie gedrink nie, maar ek het ten minste 'n dosyn koppies munttee per dag.'

Alhoewel ons beslis die rustigheid in 'n goeie koppie tee kan waardeer, kan ons nie anders as om verbaas te wees dat Spielberg nog nooit 'n besige dag op die stel met 'n koppie koffie probeer begin het nie. Regisseur Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Magic Mike) noem dr Pepper sy 'keuse -stelsel vir kafeïenaflewering'.

Dit is ook opmerklik dat Nolan en Whedon 'n nuutgevonde waardering vir tee gevind het na te veel koffie. Slapeloosheid.”


Gold Standard: Vyf dringende vrae voor die Emmy -benoemings

Oprah Winfrey kyk na die eerste episode van "The Handmaid's Tale." En deel van die tweede. Maar sy het daar gestop en kon nie voortgaan om te kyk na die somber gebeure wat uitgebeeld word in Hulu se aanpassing van Margaret Atwood se waarskuwingsroman wat 'n toekoms uitbeeld waarin vroue onderwerp, beheer en in sommige gevalle seremonieel verkrag word nie.

'Dit is net so donker,' sê Winfrey. 'Dit is amper te veel om te sien. Dit skud jou tot in die kern. Ek kom daar ... dit is 'n wonderlike vertoning. Maar dit gaan tyd neem. ”

Ons weet dat Emmy -kiesers te veel het om na te kyk. Maar een van die belangrikste dinge wat Donderdag se aankondigings oor die nominasies sal onthul, is watter programme Television Academy -lede gekies het om na te gaan en watter hulle moedswillig geïgnoreer het. As u nie alles kan kyk nie - en u kan nie, glo my, ek het probeer - wat val dan op die pad? Aaklige, treffende vertonings, seker. (As u verby Episode 3 van Netflix se "Gypsy" gekom het, om 'n onlangse voorbeeld te noem, verdien u 'n koekie.) Maar ook 'n uitdagende prys soos "The Handmaid's Tale" - programme wat u ongemaklik laat voel, programme wat u laat dink.

Miskien verbeel ek my 'n ander soort distopiese toekoms, waar een van die jaar se mees gevierde reekse verbygegaan word ten gunste van, byvoorbeeld, nog 'n seisoen van 'House of Cards'. Dink dit kan nie gebeur nie? Verlede jaar het die meer as 21 000 lede van die Televisie Akademie, meestal mans, gedink dat Jerry Seinfeld saam met komediante (meestal mans) koffie drink, meer verdien as Samantha Bee se vreeslose, feministiese breëband "Full Frontal With Samantha Bee."

So, ja, die Emmys is steeds in staat om sielverwarmende teleurstellings te lewer. Dit bring my by die eerste van verskeie vrae wat aan die vooraand van nominasies in my kop rondskarrel ...

Kan daar in hierdie versadigde tyd van Peak TV selfs iets soos 'n Emmy -snuif wees?

Laat ek eers weer daarop let dat ek nie regtig in die hele konsep van snubs glo nie, aangesien dit 'n aktiewe vraag namens kiesers impliseer. Gewoonlik is dit eenvoudig dat mense meer van 'n vertoning of opvoering hou as van 'n ander vertoning of opvoering. Bee se "snub" verlede jaar was nie 'n terugslag nie, meer 'n voorbeeld van hoe hulpelose kiesers soms kan wees.

Dit gesê, af en toe gebeur snuffels. Ben Affleck verdien nie 'n Oscar -benoeming vir die regie van "Argo" nie? Snuffel. 'N Geval van direkteure se takkiesers wat hul neuse vashou vir 'n mooi seuntjie -akteur wat op hul grondgebied inbreuk maak.

Vanjaar se Emmy -benoemings kan 'n paar polities gemotiveerde afwykings in die kategorie variëteitgesprekke toon. Jimmy Fallon is mal oor al sy gaste, maar sy onskuldige onderhoud met Donald Trump, wat geëindig het met die gasheer wat die Republikeinse presidensiële kandidaat se hare deurtrek, maak nog baie industrie mense kwaad nege maande nadat dit uitgesaai is. As Fallon se "Tonight Show" nie 'n nominasie verdien nie, kan dit korrek gelees word as 'n snuffel.

Bill Maher se onverskoonbare gebruik van die "N" -woord op sy program verlede maand sal hom ook baie stemme kos en heel moontlik 'n nominasie. Dan het Maher oor die jare heen na 38 benoemings geglimlag, so 'n ander knik sou nie 'n verrassing wees nie. Dit sou pateties wees, maar dit is 'n ander, groter gesprek.

Wat die vetgedrukte name betref, wat moontlik oor die hoof gesien kan word, is dit moontlik dat Oprah Winfrey se kragtige wending in die HBO-film "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" nie die besnoeiing in 'n oorvol hoofrolaktrise/TV-rolprent-hoofrolaktrise sal laat oorheers nie deur die vroue van "Feud: Bette and Joan" en "Big Little Lies." Met Winfrey, soos soms met Steven Spielberg die geval is, kan kiesers, ten minste onbewustelik, dink: 'Sy het alles. Sy doen nie nodig het 'n Emmy -benoeming. "

Sal die Emmys vanjaar weer rede hê om te spog oor inklusiwiteit?

Daar was 18 genomineerdes vir kleur vir toneelspelpryse by die Emmys 2016, en verskeie vroue is genomineer vir regie.

'Ek sal jou vertel, die Emmys is so uiteenlopend hierdie jaar, die Oscars vertel nou vir mense dat ons een van hul naaste vriende is,' het die gasheer Jimmy Kimmel geskerts in die openingsmonoloog van die program.

Vanjaar se getalle kan selfs 'n bietjie sterker wees, met Donald Glover se "Atlanta" wat vir verskeie benoemings voorberei is, Issa Rae se "Insecure" in die mengsel vir komedie en Rita Moreno onder die voorste deelnemers van die komedie vir 'One Day at a Time'. ” Thandie Newton moet 'West Knights' knik en Sterling K. Brown, 'n wenner verlede jaar omdat hy Christopher Darden gespeel het in 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, 'kan nog 'n Emmy by sy mantel voeg vir sy sterrewerk oor' This Is Us '.

Is dit die Emmy -einde vir "House of Cards" en "Modern Family"?

"Modern Family" is vir elke sewe seisoene benoem en het vyf Emmys -reekse gewen. "House of Cards" het nog nooit die dramareeks Emmy geneem nie, maar is vir al vier sy seisoene benoem.

Kiesers van die televisie -akademie is geneig om hul gunstelinge te beloon totdat die programme (of hulle self) sterf, maar selfs met sewe reekse, lyk dit nie goed vir een van hierdie staatmakers nie. Aan die dramakant is daar te veel goeie nuwe programme - "The Crown", "Stranger Things", "This Is Us", "The Handmaid's Tale", "Westworld" - sodat "Cards" kan meeding. Die komedieveld is nie so sterk nie, so ek kon 'Modern Family' vir 'n agtste keer sien piep voor: 'Onbreekbaar Kimmy Schmidt', 'Master of None' of 'Insecure'. As kiesers sentimenteel voel, is die uitstekende finale seisoen van "Girls" 'n waardige keuse.

Hou op. U het so pas baie Netflix -programme in die laaste antwoord genoem. Hoeveel programme van die streamer sal benoem word?

Vier. "Stranger Things" en "The Crown" vir drama, "Master of None" en "Kimmy Schmidt" vir komedie. HBO behoort drie te hê (afwesig van die onbevoegde "Game of Thrones"): "Veep", "Silicon Valley" en "Westworld."

Watter Emmy -benoeming sal mense Donderdag die gelukkigste maak?

Nietemin, die moeders van die genomineerdes, hoe gaan dit met Carrie Fisher vir haar laaste optrede op Amazon se "Catastrophe", geskiet dae voordat sy in Desember sterf? Dit was 'n net so perfekte uitstuur na Fisher as wat u kon vra, veral die laaste toneel van die episode waarin haar karakter poëties geword het op haar gunsteling (fiktiewe) TV-program: "My Children Are Schizophrenic."

As kiesers sentimenteel voel, is die uitstekende finale seisoen van "Girls" 'n waardige keuse.

Hou op. U het so pas baie Netflix -programme genoem in die laaste antwoord. Hoeveel programme van die streamer sal benoem word?

Vier. "Stranger Things" en "The Crown" vir drama, "Master of None" en "Kimmy Schmidt" vir komedie. HBO behoort drie te hê (afwesig van die onbevoegde "Game of Thrones"): "Veep", "Silicon Valley" en "Westworld."

Watter Emmy -benoeming sal mense Donderdag die gelukkigste maak?

Nietemin, die moeders van die genomineerdes, hoe gaan dit met Carrie Fisher vir haar laaste optrede op Amazon se "Catastrophe", geskiet dae voordat sy in Desember sterf? Dit was 'n net so perfekte uitstuur na Fisher as wat u kon vra, veral die laaste toneel van die episode waarin haar karakter poëties geword het op haar gunsteling (fiktiewe) TV-program: "My Children Are Schizophrenic."

Van die Emmys tot die Oscars.

Gold Standard: Vyf dringende vrae voor die Emmy -benoemings

Oprah Winfrey kyk na die eerste episode van "The Handmaid's Tale." En deel van die tweede. Maar sy het daar gestop en kon nie voortgaan om te kyk na die somber gebeure wat uitgebeeld word in Hulu se aanpassing van Margaret Atwood se waarskuwingsroman wat 'n toekoms uitbeeld waarin vroue onderwerp, beheer en in sommige gevalle seremonieel verkrag word nie.

'Dit is net so donker,' sê Winfrey. 'Dit is amper te veel om te aanskou. Dit skud jou tot in die kern. Ek kom daar ... dit is 'n wonderlike vertoning. Maar dit gaan tyd neem. ”

Ons weet dat Emmy -kiesers te veel het om na te kyk. Maar een van die belangrikste dinge wat Donderdag se aankondigings oor die nominasies sal onthul, is watter programme Television Academy -lede gekies het om na te gaan en watter hulle moedswillig geïgnoreer het. As u nie alles kan kyk nie - en u kan nie, glo my, ek het probeer - wat val dan op die pad? Aaklige, treffende vertonings, seker. (As u verby Episode 3 van Netflix se "Gypsy" gekom het, om 'n onlangse voorbeeld te noem, verdien u 'n koekie.) Maar ook uitdagende tariewe soos "The Handmaid's Tale" - programme wat u ongemaklik laat voel, programme wat u laat dink.

Miskien verbeel ek my 'n ander soort distopiese toekoms, waar een van die jaar se mees gevierde reekse verbygegaan word ten gunste van, byvoorbeeld, nog 'n seisoen van 'House of Cards'. Dink dit kan nie gebeur nie? Verlede jaar het die meer as 21 000 lede van die Televisie Akademie, meestal mans, gedink dat Jerry Seinfeld saam met komediante (meestal mans) koffie drink, meer verdien as Samantha Bee se vreeslose, feministiese breëband "Full Frontal With Samantha Bee."

So, yes, the Emmys remain capable of delivering soul-crushing disappointments. Which brings me to the first of several questions rattling around in my head on the eve of nominations …

In this saturated time of Peak TV, can there even be such a thing as an Emmy snub?

First, let me note again that I don’t really believe in the whole concept of snubs, as it implies an active spurning on behalf of voters. Usually, it’s a simple matter of people liking a show or performance a bit more than another show or performance. Bee’s “snub” last year wasn’t a rebuff, more just another example of how clueless voters can sometimes be.

That said, snubs do occasionally happen. Ben Affleck not earning an Oscar nomination for directing “Argo”? Snub. A case of directors branch voters thumbing their noses at a pretty boy actor infringing on their territory.

This year’s Emmy nominations could see a couple of politically motivated shunnings in the variety talk series category. Jimmy Fallon fawns over all his guests, but his innocuous interview with Donald Trump, which ended with the host tousling the Republican presidential candidate’s hair, still angers a lot of industry people nine months after it aired. If Fallon’s “Tonight Show” fails to earn a nomination, it can be correctly read as a snub.

Likewise, Bill Maher’s inexcusable use of the “N” word on his show last month will cost him plenty of votes and quite possibly a nomination. Then again, Maher has smirked his way to 38 nominations over the years, so another nod wouldn’t be a surprise. It’d be pathetic, but that’s a different, larger conversation.

As for the bold-faced names who might be overlooked, it’s possible that Oprah Winfrey’s powerful turn in the HBO movie “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” won’t make the cut in a crowded limited-series/TV movie lead actress field dominated by the women of “Feud: Bette and Joan” and “Big Little Lies.” With Winfrey, as is sometimes the case with Steven Spielberg, voters might think, at least subconsciously, “She has alles. She doesn’t nodig het an Emmy nomination.”

Will the Emmys have cause to brag about inclusiveness again this year?

There were 18 nominees of color for acting awards at the 2016 Emmys, and several women were nominated for directing.

“I’ll tell you, the Emmys are so diverse this year, the Oscars are now telling people we’re one of their closest friends,” host Jimmy Kimmel joked in the show’s opening monologue.

This year’s numbers could even be a bit stronger, with Donald Glover’s “Atlanta” primed for several nominations, Issa Rae’s “Insecure” in the mix for comedy and Rita Moreno among the comedy supporting actress front-runners for “One Day at a Time.” Thandie Newton should secure a nod for “Westworld,” and Sterling K. Brown, a winner last year for playing Christopher Darden in “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” could add another Emmy to his mantle for his stellar work on “This Is Us.”

Is this the Emmy end for “House of Cards” and “Modern Family”?

“Modern Family” has been nominated for every one of its seven seasons, winning five series Emmys. “House of Cards” has never taken the drama series Emmy, but has been nominated for all four of its seasons.

Television academy voters tend to reward their favorites until the shows (or they themselves) die, but even with seven series slots, it’s not looking good for either of these stalwarts. On the drama side, there’s too many good new programs — “The Crown,’ “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Westworld” — for “Cards” to compete. The comedy field isn’t quite as strong, so I could see “Modern Family” squeaking in for an eighth time ahead of, say, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Master of None” or “Insecure.” If voters are feeling sentimental, the superb final season of “Girls” would be a worthy choice.

Hold up. You just mentioned a lot of Netflix shows in that last answer. Just how many programs from the streamer will be nominated?

Four. “Stranger Things” and “The Crown” for drama, “Master of None” and “Kimmy Schmidt” for comedy. HBO should have three (absent the ineligible “Game of Thrones”): “Veep,” “Silicon Valley” and “Westworld.”

What Emmy nomination will make people the happiest on Thursday?

Nominees’ mothers notwithstanding, how about Carrie Fisher for her final performance on Amazon’s “Catastrophe,” shot days before she died in December? It was about as perfect a send-off to Fisher as you could ask for, particularly the episode’s last scene that found her character waxing poetic on her favorite (fictional) TV show: “My Children Are Schizophrenic.”

Gold Standard: Five pressing questions before the Emmy nominations

Oprah Winfrey watched the first episode of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” And part of the second. But she stopped there, unable to continue watching the grim events depicted in Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s cautionary novel depicting a future in which women are subjugated, controlled and, in some cases, ceremonially raped.

“It’s just so dark,” Winfrey says. “It’s almost too much to witness. It shakes you to the core. I’ll get there … it’s an amazing show. But it’s going to take some time.”

We know that Emmy voters have too much to watch. But one of the key things Thursday’s nominations announcement will reveal is which programs Television Academy members chose to check out and which they willfully ignored. If you can’t watch everything — and you can’t, believe me, I’ve tried — then what falls to the wayside? Awful, plodding shows, sure. (If you made it past Episode 3 of Netflix’s “Gypsy,” to cite a recent example, you deserve a cookie.) But also challenging fare like “The Handmaid’s Tale” — programs that make you uncomfortable, programs that make you think.

Maybe I’m imagining a different kind of dystopian future, where one of the year’s most celebrated series is passed over in favor of, say, another season of “House of Cards.” Think it can’t happen? Last year, the 21,000-plus members of the Television Academy, mostly men, thought Jerry Seinfeld having coffee with comedians (mostly men) deserved a nomination more than Samantha Bee’s fearless, feminist broadside “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee.”

So, yes, the Emmys remain capable of delivering soul-crushing disappointments. Which brings me to the first of several questions rattling around in my head on the eve of nominations …

The comedy field isn’t quite as strong, so I could see “Modern Family” squeaking in for an eighth time ahead of, say, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Master of None” or “Insecure.” If voters are feeling sentimental, the superb final season of “Girls” would be a worthy choice.

Hold up. You just mentioned a lot of Netflix shows in that last answer. Just how many programs from the streamer will be nominated?

Four. “Stranger Things” and “The Crown” for drama, “Master of None” and “Kimmy Schmidt” for comedy. HBO should have three (absent the ineligible “Game of Thrones”): “Veep,” “Silicon Valley” and “Westworld.”

What Emmy nomination will make people the happiest on Thursday?

Nominees’ mothers notwithstanding, how about Carrie Fisher for her final performance on Amazon’s “Catastrophe,” shot days before she died in December? It was about as perfect a send-off to Fisher as you could ask for, particularly the episode’s last scene that found her character waxing poetic on her favorite (fictional) TV show: “My Children Are Schizophrenic.”

Gold Standard: Five pressing questions before the Emmy nominations

Oprah Winfrey watched the first episode of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” And part of the second. But she stopped there, unable to continue watching the grim events depicted in Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s cautionary novel depicting a future in which women are subjugated, controlled and, in some cases, ceremonially raped.

“It’s just so dark,” Winfrey says. “It’s almost too much to witness. It shakes you to the core. I’ll get there … it’s an amazing show. But it’s going to take some time.”

We know that Emmy voters have too much to watch. But one of the key things Thursday’s nominations announcement will reveal is which programs Television Academy members chose to check out and which they willfully ignored. If you can’t watch everything — and you can’t, believe me, I’ve tried — then what falls to the wayside? Awful, plodding shows, sure. (If you made it past Episode 3 of Netflix’s “Gypsy,” to cite a recent example, you deserve a cookie.) But also challenging fare like “The Handmaid’s Tale” — programs that make you uncomfortable, programs that make you think.

Maybe I’m imagining a different kind of dystopian future, where one of the year’s most celebrated series is passed over in favor of, say, another season of “House of Cards.” Think it can’t happen? Last year, the 21,000-plus members of the Television Academy, mostly men, thought Jerry Seinfeld having coffee with comedians (mostly men) deserved a nomination more than Samantha Bee’s fearless, feminist broadside “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee.”

So, yes, the Emmys remain capable of delivering soul-crushing disappointments. Which brings me to the first of several questions rattling around in my head on the eve of nominations …

In this saturated time of Peak TV, can there even be such a thing as an Emmy snub?

First, let me note again that I don’t really believe in the whole concept of snubs, as it implies an active spurning on behalf of voters. Usually, it’s a simple matter of people liking a show or performance a bit more than another show or performance. Bee’s “snub” last year wasn’t a rebuff, more just another example of how clueless voters can sometimes be.

That said, snubs do occasionally happen. Ben Affleck not earning an Oscar nomination for directing “Argo”? Snub. A case of directors branch voters thumbing their noses at a pretty boy actor infringing on their territory.

This year’s Emmy nominations could see a couple of politically motivated shunnings in the variety talk series category. Jimmy Fallon fawns over all his guests, but his innocuous interview with Donald Trump, which ended with the host tousling the Republican presidential candidate’s hair, still angers a lot of industry people nine months after it aired. If Fallon’s “Tonight Show” fails to earn a nomination, it can be correctly read as a snub.

Likewise, Bill Maher’s inexcusable use of the “N” word on his show last month will cost him plenty of votes and quite possibly a nomination. Then again, Maher has smirked his way to 38 nominations over the years, so another nod wouldn’t be a surprise. It’d be pathetic, but that’s a different, larger conversation.

As for the bold-faced names who might be overlooked, it’s possible that Oprah Winfrey’s powerful turn in the HBO movie “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” won’t make the cut in a crowded limited-series/TV movie lead actress field dominated by the women of “Feud: Bette and Joan” and “Big Little Lies.” With Winfrey, as is sometimes the case with Steven Spielberg, voters might think, at least subconsciously, “She has alles. Sy doen nie nodig het 'n Emmy -benoeming. "

Sal die Emmys vanjaar weer rede hê om te spog oor inklusiwiteit?

Daar was 18 genomineerdes vir kleur vir toneelspelpryse by die Emmys in 2016, en verskeie vroue is genomineer vir regie.

'Ek sal jou vertel, die Emmys is so uiteenlopend hierdie jaar, die Oscars vertel nou vir mense dat ons een van hul naaste vriende is,' het die gasheer Jimmy Kimmel geskerts in die openingsmonoloog van die program.

Die getalle van hierdie jaar kan selfs 'n bietjie sterker wees, met Donald Glover se "Atlanta" wat op verskeie nominasies geplaas is, Issa Rae se "Insecure" in die mengsel vir komedie en Rita Moreno onder die komedie-ondersteuners se voorlopers vir "One Day at a Time. ” Thandie Newton moet 'West Knights' knik en Sterling K. Brown, 'n wenner verlede jaar vir die speel van Christopher Darden in 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, 'kan nog 'n Emmy by sy mantel voeg vir sy sterrewerk oor' This Is Us '.

Is dit die Emmy -einde vir "House of Cards" en "Modern Family"?

"Modern Family" is vir elke sewe seisoene benoem en het vyf Emmys -reekse gewen. "House of Cards" het nog nooit die dramareeks Emmy geneem nie, maar is vir al vier sy seisoene benoem.

Kiesers van die televisie -akademie is geneig om hul gunstelinge te beloon totdat die programme (of hulle self) sterf, maar selfs met sewe reekse, lyk dit nie goed vir een van hierdie staatmakers nie. Aan die dramakant is daar te veel goeie nuwe programme - "The Crown", "Stranger Things", "This Is Us", "The Handmaid's Tale", "Westworld" - sodat "Cards" kan meeding. Die komedieveld is nie so sterk nie, so ek kon 'Modern Family' vir 'n agtste keer sien piep voor: 'Onbreekbaar Kimmy Schmidt', 'Master of None' of 'Insecure'. As kiesers sentimenteel voel, is die uitstekende finale seisoen van "Girls" 'n waardige keuse.

Hou op. U het so pas baie Netflix -programme genoem in die laaste antwoord. Hoeveel programme van die streamer sal benoem word?

Vier. "Stranger Things" en "The Crown" vir drama, "Master of None" en "Kimmy Schmidt" vir komedie. HBO behoort drie te hê (afwesig van die onbevoegde "Game of Thrones"): "Veep", "Silicon Valley" en "Westworld."

Watter Emmy -benoeming sal mense Donderdag die gelukkigste maak?

Nietemin, die moeders van die genomineerdes, hoe gaan dit met Carrie Fisher vir haar laaste optrede op Amazon se "Catastrophe", geskiet dae voordat sy in Desember sterf? Dit was 'n net so perfekte uitstuur na Fisher as wat u kon vra, veral die laaste toneel van die episode waarin haar karakter poëties geword het op haar gunsteling (fiktiewe) TV-program: "My Children Are Schizophrenic."
