Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Stage Door: Hillary and Clinton

We're seeing a lot of theater in the run up to the Tonys.Here's new contributor J.B.

For the last twenty years or so,and probably longer,well-crafted stories about women in politics told on stage or screen have frequently been described with words like "timely"or "vital."These stories,in many cases,are ones we haven't heard before,and to the extent we as a society want our art to imitate life (and indeed,vice versa),they are,now more than ever,ones we need to hear.

It is for this reason thatHillary and Clinton,a well-crafted story about the quintessential woman in American politics now playing at the John Golden Theater in New York,feels like such an anomaly.The play,written by Lucas Hnath and directed by Joe Mantello (his SEVENTH production on Broadway in just the last three years),takes place in a hotel room during the thick of the 2008 New Hampshire Democratic Primary and offers an imagined glimpse into what exactly the titular characters (played by Tony-winners Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow,respectively) may have been thinking,feeling,and communicating to each other at that precise place and time in history...

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

By Spencer Coile

When you consider all of the funny women working in television,you might think that the past winners in the Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series race would be competitive.However,with Julie Bowen,Allison Janney,and now Kate McKinnon monopolizing the 2010's with two wins apiece,the other nominees don't seem to stand a chance.(That's not to say there aren't shocking winners every once in a while – look no further than Merritt Wever's win in 2013 forNurse Jackie.) With McKinnon back in the race,can anyone overtake her?

Emmy Nominations for 2018: Glow,Mrs Maisel,Game of Thrones,and the Snubbing of Mindhunter

Happy 70th,Emmys!The big awards night won't be held until September 17th (hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che) but the nominations were announced this morning.The Emmys have so many categories that beware when you seeanysite that says "full list of nominees."Even the major news outlets (like Variety and all the massive circulation papers) do this while leaving out a shit ton of categories.In other words don't believe it when anyone says "full list".The only place that regularly shares that is the Emmy site itself.Here's the PDF.

The behemoth,once again,is "Game of Thrones"which,after a year off,returns again to its throne of "Most Nominated Show"just barely edging out "Saturday Night Live,""West World"and "The Handmaid's Tale"all of which received 20 or more nominations.I was particularly happy about plentiful nominations for "GLOW"though it's worth noting that these nominations are not from the show as we know it right this second but from season 1 a full year ago.

After the jump the major stuff and a few other categories that we're interested in...

Stage Door: Glenda Jackson in "Three Tall Women"

by Eric Blume

The Broadway revival of Edward Albee's 1994 playThree Tall Womenopens on Thursday.It stars Alison Pill,freshly Oscar nominated Laurie Metcalf,and two-time Oscar winner Glenda Jackson,who hasn't been on an American stage in 32 years.

Director Joe Mantello builds a stunning production.Albee's play,which won the Pulitzer Prize when it debuted off-Broadway in 1994,holds up beautifully,as all of his major plays do.Albee writes in a theatrical,controlled,but go-for-broke language that soars in the way only the best theater can.Three Tall Womenis a major play,likeWho's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?andSeascapeandThe Zoo StoryandA Delicate BalanceandThe Goat,Or Who is Sylvia?.It's mind-boggling when you think of this man's contribution to the theater,and the deep and compelling issues and emotions he tackled during his long career.

Act One ofThree Tall Womendeals with a rich,dying old woman (Jackson),her caretaker (Metcalf),and her legal representative (Pill)...
