Emmy FYC: Hong Chau in "Forever"

By Spencer Coile

Despite its impressive cast (Maya Rudolph,Fred Armisen,Catherine Keener) and creative team,the premiere of Amazon Prime'sForeverwas oddly muted.Yet for anyone who watched the eight episode first season,this shouldn't be a complete surprise - the premise is almost too clever and takes a solid three episodes before you actually know what is happening.Still,with its pedigree,it's strange that not even Maya Rudolph's strong leading role garnered any Emmy buzz,nor did it receive any Globe or Critics Choice love.

Still at least one performance absolutely deserves the Emmy voters attention: FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: Hong Chau for Comedy Guest Performance in episode 6 "Andre and Sarah."Months after the series premiere (I first watched it back in September),I haven't been able to shake Chau's performance as Sarah…

Sundance: Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling in "Late Night"

The Film Experience has two contributors at Sundance this year,亚博主页Murtada and Abe.Here's Murtada's first missive,on a film that'scurrently closing a record Sundance dealwith Amazon -Editor.

by Murtada Elfadl

Emma Thompson plays legendary late night talk show host Katherine Newbery (think Letterman,2 decades younger,English and a woman but just as famous and revered and still on TV) in the new comedyLate Night.Early in the film Newbery meets a male employee from the writers room who is asking for a raise because he recently had a baby.In two minutes Thompson eviscerates him,and all of the decades of sexism and inequality in the workplace.She likens having babies to having a drug problem that one can't shake.The latter is an unexpected and illogical simile until,that is,you hear it coming out of Thompson's mouth.The writing's funny and sharp,and Thompson is on full throttle hilarious commitment.Late Nighthas a few more of these golden moments,but also a few that are clichéd...

Homecoming: Season 1

By Spencer Coile

With the recent wave of bona fide movie stars making their way to television,it should come as no surprise that someone as prolific as Julia Roberts would do the same.Her extensive career has proven time and again that she can master multiple genres,complex characters,and still be the best part of any ensemble (looking at you,August: Osage County).

That is what makes her performance inHomecoming,the latest Amazon Prime series fromMr.Robotcreator Sam Esmail,all the more exciting.Based on the popular podcast that came before it,Roberts takes on the role of Heidi Bergman,previously played by Catherine Keener.Working for the Homecoming Transitional Support Center,Heidi's job is to assimilate soldiers back into civilian life.However,unease and intrigue begins to set in,as Heidi soon realizes that her role is more sinister than she had initially thought...
