Will the fact there are three actresses in this category from “SNL” cancel each other out? Not likely. Kate McKinnon should repeat her 2016 win easily. If she falters look for the very deserving Judith Light to add an Emmy to those two Tonys and that Daytime Emmy Award already on her mantle.

An unlikely smash hit last summer, STX Entertainment has wasted little time in going franchise with “Bad Moms.” After an ill-advised flirtation with knocking out a “Bad Dads” movie, the studio wisely realized audiences wanted more ‘Moms,’ and this holiday season, the gang is back. Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn have returned for this holiday-themed sequel, which keeps the R-rated approach intact.  Continue reading First NSFW Trailer For ‘A Bad Moms Christmas’ Gets Raunchy For The Holidays at The Playlist.

Family is complicated, and few shows take that theme to heart better than “Transparent.” Amazon‘s hit series has its fourth season coming up, and it looks like things remain lovingly complex for the Pfeffermans.

Welcome back to the Bingeworthy Breakdown, the feature where we ask ourselves if a show is worth watching or not. For the new Amazon show “I Love Dick,” the answer is a resounding “Yes,” which perhaps is all you need to know, especially if you love creator Jill Soloway‘s Emmy-winning “Transparent” (which you should, given that it’s been in our top 5 for the best TV shows of the year for three years running, including last year).

HOLLYWOOOD – When Amazon Studios announced there would be a surprise moderator at their Emmys FYC event for “Transparent” Saturday night the candidates seemed slightly obvious. It would likely be someone from Hollywood’s LGBTQ community such as RuPaul (who has been everywhere lately) or perhaps transgender pioneer Laverne Cox . Amazon had a much bigger surprise in store. The night began with the screening from two episodes of “Transparent’s” third season: “To Sardines and Back,” where Maura (Jeffrey Tambor) reveals she wants to fully transition, and, the season finale, “Exciting and New.” If you’ve watched last season (and if you haven’t why not?) you already know that the final episode ends with Shelly (Judith Light) surprising her family with an impromptu performance of her one-woman show “To Shell And Back” at sea.

A charming and blissful look at the joys and pains of a bravado-flecked reckless youth, director Max Winkler’s “Flower” is an earnest coming-of-age pic mixing cheeky sass will full-bodied teenage angst and beaming vitality. And it’s also an untamed dark comedy that veers off to unexpected places that reveal disturbing edges. If there’s a movie that can pull off the cool insouciance of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Clueless” and Diablo Cody, and successfully mix it with the seemingly incongruous realist sensibilities of “Fish Tank” or the films of Andrea Arnold in general, “Flower” is it.

HOLLYWOOD – Emmy season is already in full swing and Amazon Studios has spent this week pitching their contenders to Television Academy members at the historic Hollywood Athletic Club. Wednesday night the spotlight was on Jill Soloway’s latest series, “I Love Dick.” Now, before you let your imagination get away with itself you should know that the new series is an adaptation of Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel of the same name.

Helping to put Amazon on the map with “Transparent,” Jill Soloway likely has some creative pull at the streaming giant, and they definitely wanted to see what she had up her sleeve next. Well, that project is the provocatively named “I Love Dick.” Starring Kevin Bacon, Kathryn Hahn, Griffin Dunne, Lily Mojekwu, Roberta Colindrez, and India Menuez, and featuring episodes directed by Jill Soloway, Andrea Arnold, Kimberly Peirce, and Jim Frohna, the series is an adaptation of the book by Chris Kraus, and details the unique impact the titular Dick has a woman who finds herself marooned in Marfa, Texas.
