Nicole Kidman Wins SAG Award for Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for ‘Big Little Lies’

Nicole Kidman Wins SAG Award for Best Actress in a Miniseries or Movie for ‘Big Little Lies’
The question wasn’t so much if “Big Little Lies” would take home the SAG Award for Best Actress in a Miniseries, but who. As has happened multiple times since last fall, Nicole Kidman took home the prize, edging out two of her fellow cast members.

Co-stars Laura Dern and Reese Witherspoon were two of the other finalists in the Best Actress in a Miniseries category. The idea that the actresses from the HBO hit would cancel out votes for each other was mitigated by the fact that the only other series nominated in this category had a pair of actresses itself: Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon each picked up nods for “Feud: Bette and Joan.”

“It’s only the beginning,” Kidman said of the support stories about older

This Is Us Cast Wins SAG Award in Surprising Victory
The This Is Us cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award on Sunday night for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series.

Veep: Final Season Delayed Until 2019 Following Julia Louis-Dreyfus Cancer Treatment
Selina Meyer’s reelection campaign won’t get underway until next year.

According to Veep‘s Matt Walsh, the Emmy-winning comedy’s seventh and final season is expected to begin production in August, once star Julia Louis-Dreyfus has had enough time to recuperate after undergoing chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer. As such, the series’ swan song is not expected to premiere before 2019.

“We’ll start filming in August and it will air in 2019,” Walsh told EW.com. “We’ve seen [Julia], she’s done some table reads [and] she’s doing well.”

The Handmaid’s Tale star Joseph Fiennes arrived at the 2018 SAG Awards red carpet wearing a Time’s Up pin Sunday, continuing the momentum started two weeks prior at the Golden Globes.

Pretty Little Liars Spinoff: How Will It Differ From the Original Series?

Pretty Little Liars Spinoff: How Will It Differ From the Original Series?
It’s been four months since Freeform announced production on a Pretty Little Liars spinoff, and fans are chomping at the bit for updates — so who better to ask than showrunner Marlene King?

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Unsurprisingly, Jessica Chastain Makes Quite The First (Time Hosting) Impression

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Unsurprisingly, Jessica Chastain Makes Quite The First (Time Hosting) Impression
Like with Sam Rockwell last week, this episode of “SNL” works very well to make Jessica Chastain a true part of the show — not just a necessary semi-presence — and make sure that her voice is clear in her sketches. And you know what? As it turns out, Jessica Chastain’s comedic voice (in addition to her voice as a feminist) is pretty weird. Especially when she starts doing voices.

Host: Jessica Chastain

Before Chastain starts doing voices, she’s got to start doing a musical monologue. You know the deal by now, gentle “SNL” viewers. But, said monologue does involve the forever jam “You Don’t Own Me.” And before it becomes a musical number, you’ve got Chastain’s brief aside about wanting to play the nagging girlfriend as opposed to the strong female for once. That particular moment is kind of like Sam Rockwell’s monologue noting he

Five Things You Didn’t Know about Cmt Docu-Series “Music City”

Music City is a new docu-series that is coming to Cmt and is considered a sister show to the popular Nashville that has been one of the shining stars of the network for a little while now. It’s hard not to be skeptical of a new reality show but after so many have aired throughout the years one more seems like it’s just another way for people to get noticed in the most ridiculous way possible. I could be and hope I am wrong since this show will focus on several individuals that were either born and bred in Nashville

Can Will Smith Get in Our Good Graces with “Gemini Man?”

Will Smith might be looking to get back in the good graces of the audience by starring in Ang Lee’s Gemini Man. It’s easy to assume that this will be an uphill battle since Smith hasn’t done a whole lot of noteworthy projects as of late and didn’t start his downward slide on a good note either. His roles in movies like I Am Legend, Concussion, Seven Pounds, and even Focus haven’t won him a lot of new fans since the movies kind of bombed out and didn’t do much. It’s hard to say anything bad about him since I

SAG Awards Analysis: ‘Three Billboards’ Rebounds From PGA Loss, But Oscar Race Still Too Close To Call; NBC’s ‘This Is Us’ Shakes Things Up On TV Side

In a nearly surprise-free show that went across the board for the favorites in movies, and past winners in television, the 24th annual SAG Awards was a predictable affair that gives momentum in the Oscar race to the big winner of the night: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri swept its categories after leading the nominations with four. No surprise there. This is an actor’s movie if ever there was one and it essentially repeated its Golden Globe triumph of a couple…

Sterling K. Brown, ‘This Is Us’ Cast Talk Time’s Up at SAG Awards
Sterling K. Brown and his “This Is Us” castmates spoke about the Time’s Up movement Sunday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

“What the Time’s Up movement has meant to me is just really taking stock of the fact that there are certain things,” Brown told reporters backstage, “that I can be more conscientious [of].”

“Things that are funny to you may not be funny to everyone,” Brown said. “There is a responsibility that we have to make sure that our work environment is comfortable for all.”

Fox's The Resident Premiere: Grade It!
If you’re looking for the next Grey’s Anatomy or another Chicago Med, Fox’s The Resident is not it — and that’s a good thing. From the horrifying opening minutes of Sunday’s series premiere, in which Bruce Greenwood’s chief of surgery botches a routine appendectomy and pressures the selfie-taking nurses into covering for him, it’s clear that the new medical drama is like no other hospital show currently on TV.

The Top Uses of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” in Movies or TV

Cyndi Lauper didn’t write True Colors but she performed it beautifully. Bill Steinberg and Tom Kelly co-wrote the song and then gave to Lauper to sing. This is the only song on her second album that she didn’t help to write, and it was written largely about Steinberg’s mother. Lauper also stated that the song resonated with her on a deeper level since it reminded her of a friends that had passe away from HIV/AIDS.

SAG Awards: Actors Fall Hard for ‘Three Billboards’ but the Oscar Race Is Far From Over

SAG Awards: Actors Fall Hard for ‘Three Billboards’ but the Oscar Race Is Far From Over
The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards would appear to have clearly delineated this year’s acting Oscar frontrunners. Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”), Frances McDormand, and Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) all doubled down Sunday night following recent wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.

In the supporting categories, it’s been an about-face from the critics’ circuit, where Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”) and Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird”) have far outpaced Rockwell and Janney. Oldman has remained the lead actor heavyweight throughout, while McDormand has been neck-and-neck with “The Shape of Water” star Sally Hawkins.

But bear in mind we don’t even have Oscar nominations yet. In fact, the SAG Awards almost never precede the Academy’s announcement. The point is, there’s a very long phase two still ahead, two weeks longer than usual due to the Winter Olympics. A lot can

SAG Awards TV Winners: ‘Big Little Lies,’ ‘Veep’ Propel HBO Over Netflix, Hulu

The HBO vs. Netflix rivalry has never been hotter — but the premium cabler took the latest round in the awards race, triumphing at the Screen Actors Guild awards.

The premium cabler, which had 12 nominations to Netflix’s 19 going into the night, went home with five trophies — two for “Veep,” two for “Big Little Lies” (for stars Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard), and one for “Game of Thrones” (for stunt ensemble).

Netflix had to settle for just one, for Claire Foy’s star turn in “The Crown.” “Stranger Things” and “Glow” were both shut out, despite their multiple nods. Streaming had a rough night overall, with Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” — an awards favorite — also going home empty-handed. It’s a turnaround from last year, when Netflix reigned supreme on the heels of “Stranger Things,” “The Crown,” and “Orange Is the New Black.”

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises

SAG Awards: Biggest Snubs and Surprises
The Screen Actors Guild usually proves themselves to be creatures of habit: They reward the same stars, year in and year out — following their own patterns rather than setting any new trends.

But the night wasn’t completely by the books. Here’s a look at some of the award show’s biggest curveballs:

Surprise: “This Is Us” (NBC)

Admittedly, this race was a tough one to call: Good arguments could have been made for any of the nominees. But “Stranger Things” was a surprise win last year, and the SAG did it again, crowning the NBC tearjerker. The last time a broadcast series took home the trophy was in 2006 for ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”

Snub: “Stranger Things” (Netflix)

Speaking of “Stranger Things,” the Netflix series went 0-for-4 tonight. Nothing for David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, the stunt team, or the cast — depriving viewers of yet another rousing speech from Harbour and Winona Ryder’s facial
