Toronto: ‘Irena’s Vow’ Director Sees Ukraine Crisis Through Second World War Lens

When Canadian director Louise Archambault shot her Holocaust drama Irena’s Vow — about a young woman’s heroism in hiding Polish Jews from Nazi occupiers – she faced present-day obstacles during production in Poland. Archambault witnessed a makeshift refugee camp filled with Ukrainians fleeing Russia’s invasion of their country next to her hotel in Warsaw, and […]

‘Yellowjackets’ Director Karyn Kusama on How the Showtime Drama Depicts the “Hell We Put Each Other Through” as Women

Karyn Kusama is one of many executive producers on Showtime’s blockbuster dual-timeline drama about the survivors of a plane crash, but she also has a very singular connection to the series: She directed both the pilot and the most recent season finale. Two years ago, she was tasked with introducing the world to the group […]

Emmy Nominations: Harrison Ford, Elizabeth Olsen Snubbed as ‘Welcome to Chippendales,’ ‘Jury Duty’ Surprise

Harrison Ford was widely expected to land his first Emmy nomination this year for his two roles in Shrinking and 1923. Instead, he failed to earn a nod for either performance despite Shrinking landing multiple nods. 1923, on the other hand, is just one of several Taylor Sheridan shows that were shut out from this […]

‘Yellowjackets’ Nonbinary Star Liv Hewson on Decision to Not Submit Themselves for Emmys Consideration: “My Issue Is So Structural”

Nonbinary actor Liv Hewson, who stars as teen Vanessa “Van” Palmer in Yellowjackets, is opening up about why they still wouldn’t submit themselves for this year’s Emmy Awards after seeing two nonbinary actors win Tony Awards.

“I Think We Should Have Therapists on Set”: Jennifer Coolidge, Dominique Fishback and the THR Drama Actress Roundtable

Before cameras rolled at THR’s Drama Actress Emmy Roundtable, Jennifer Garner turned to Jennifer Coolidge and asked whether she’d be returning for The White Lotus season three. It was an innocent question and an instant giveaway that the Last Thing He Told Me star had yet to see the season two finale, in which (spoiler!) […]

How Dual Roles in ‘Queen Charlotte,’ ‘Tiny Beautiful Things’ and More Mirror the Past As Well As the Present

I knew I’d been sucked into Netflix’s Queen Charlotte when 21-year-old star India Amarteifio offers her first onscreen sneer. Playing the young version of Bridgerton‘s capricious royal (Golda Rosheuvel) in this prequel series, the actress showcases plenty of theatrical rebellion by smashing busts and monologuing about all the ways her corsetry could kill her. She’s […]

“It’s Too Hot on the Page!”: Tony Gilroy, Sharon Horgan and the THR Showrunner Roundtable

For the six top writer-producers who gathered over Zoom in late April for THR‘s Showrunner Roundtable, the idea of a potential WGA strike was spoken of like an inevitability. And it was. With pens down since May 1, each participant has been out of work — including Tony Gilroy, who stepped away from season two […]

“Tears on My Pillow Were Just Part of the Price”: Mark Mylod, Karyn Kusama and the THR Director Roundtable

“That which scares me ultimately will be the thing I’m drawn to,” observed Mark Mylod, director and executive producer of HBO/Max’s Succession, not necessarily intending to get philosophical during The Hollywood Reporter‘s Director Emmy Roundtable. But fear, it turns out, is a major motivator for six of the top TV helmers working right now. Meeting […]

The ‘Succession’ Effect: Do Other Dramas Stand a Chance at the Emmys?

Awards strategists managing this season’s Emmy campaigns may have issued a collective gasp on the night of April 9 — at least those who were watching the third episode of Succession live as it aired that evening. With little warning, and off-camera, Logan Roy (played by Emmy winner Brian Cox, twice nominated for his role […]
