"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Who will win the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Drama?

By Spencer Coile

Emmy voting is currently underway (ballots are due on the 27th),so it's time to start digging into some of the more exciting categories this year has to offer.The Supporting Actress in a Drama field is always tricky to navigate – we hope for inspired wins,but end up with repeat winners,such as Anna Gunn forBreaking Bador Maggie Smith forDownton Abbey.

That's why it is exhilarating when an unexpected name is called on Emmy night,for instance: Archie Panjabi onThe Good Wifeor Ann Dowd last year forThe Handmaid's Tale.This year,Dowd is back.Will she repeat or will someone else be victorious?

Together & Apart: 10 Years with The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

By Spencer Coile

Growing up in the early 2000's,it was near impossible to avoid hearing someone talk aboutThe Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.It followed four best friends who,realizing the difficulty of being apart from each other for the summer,find themselves inexplicably linked by a pair of jeans that magically fit all of them.The first book by Ann Brashares was published in 2001 with four sequels shortly after,so it wasn't long before a film adaptation was in the works.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantswas released in 2005 and its sequel in 2008.With the casting of TV stars Alexis Bledel,America Ferrera,Blake Lively,and Amber Tamblyn,the films brought the same magic that the novels did before them.They were melodramatic and trite,but bursting with themes of loss,love,and friendship.I was swept up in the magic,and with the 10th anniversary ofThe Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2,felt it was imperative to get nostalgic and explore a series that helped define my adolescence...

The Handmaid's Tale: Season 2 Begins

By Spencer Coile

What one word would you use to describe the first season ofThe Handmaid's Tale?Bleak,visceral,angry… timely.Take your pick – they all apply.And returning for its second season,it becomes abundantly clear that the series is not shying away from its difficult subject matter.

Set in Gilead,a dystopian future where only a handful of women are capable of conceiving children,The Handmaid's Tale(based on Margaret Atwood's novel of the same name) is a grisly yet empowering exploration of femininity and feminism in a time when women's bodies are viewed as mere vessels.Season one was righteous,searing,and highly acclaimed earning eight total Emmy Awards and a place in the cultural zeitgeist.Can the second season keep the momentum going?

The Handmaid's Tale's first season loosely followed the plot of Atwood's novel,but the second must conjure a life of its own...

"Praised Be": Or,The Handmaid's Tale

By Spencer Coile

Mad Menended almost two years ago.For many fans,it was the end of an era as we watched Don Draper spiral out of control,while Peggy Olson climbed the ladder to success.It was a story many of us cherished for its seven year run.Importantly,though,it was the series that catapulted Elisabeth Moss to stardom.Sure,she had stints onThe West Wingand later found success in film and on Broadway,but it wasMad Menthat helped pave the way for Moss to be where she is now.For many fans (myself included),we found ourselves wondering when Moss would claim another role that used her incredible,chameleon-esque acting abilities the same wayMad Mendid.

And then Hulu ordered a straight-to-series 10 episode adaptation of Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel,A Handmaid's Tale.After its premiere (today),it is safe to say that Elisabeth Moss is back.And better than ever.Of course,she is not the only stellar quality to the series.After the jump,a review of the first two episodes ofThe Handmaid's Tale.And boy,are they doozies...

Mad Men @ The Movies: Megan,The Actress

In Mad Men @ The Movies we talk about the show's movie references.Mad Men happens to love the movies and we happen to love Mad Men.

Megan Draper:My father won't care if he finds out you read James Bond.
Don Draper:You know what?It's a good book.You should read it.

Eyebrows were raised recently when it was announced that Jessica Paré would be submitting herself in the lead actress category at the Emmys for this season ofMad Men.Over the show's interminably long hiatus she graduated from guest star to...well,the new Mrs.Don Draper fits the "Lead"description in every way. Not only does Megan gets key storylines in every episode but her energy,impulsiveness,and partial foreignness is something like a youthquake for the show,especially since all the other characters are aging quicker than they'd like to.

In"At the Codfish Ball"and"Lady Lazarus"Megan's decisions continue to cause aftershocks with Don,Peggy,Roger and more who all seem to interpret Megan's decisions through their own narcissistic lens.Her parents visit,she saves a major account (Heinz Baked Beans) proving her natural aptitude at advertising but instead of celebrating she announces her resignation.She secretly still wants to be an actress and has been attending auditions on the sly.

Movie grammar and a pinch of Hitchcock after the jump...
