Emmy Awards 2020: Predictions for what could be a very awkward show

Considering that the Emmy Awards will go virtual for the first time — and that winners will accept their prizes from their homes — maybe our annual batch of predictions should focus more on how the telecast will unfold, than who will prevail. For example: Just how many awkward flubs are going to plague host Jimmy Kimmel? Will the WiFi cut out, and if so, when? Who will have the best Zoom backgrounds?

Sterling K. Brown, Jurnee Smollett and Jeremy Pope on Television Re-Imagining Black History

Throughout Hollywood history, Black actors have played a limited role in onscreen explorations of the past, often serving in small supporting roles or simply not appearing at all. And, as such, Black people’s place in history often goes unnoticed off-screen and the context necessary to understand the racial tensions of the current moment is lost. […]

Jeremy Pope, Paul Mescal, Ramy Youssef on Portraying Characters Finding Their Voices

When Archie (Jeremy Pope) is threatened with being removed from his own screenplay because making a movie written by a Black screenwriter would “sink the studio” in Netflix’s “Hollywood,” he responds with as much composure and restraint as he can muster. But given that the show is set in the 1940s, when Black individuals had […]

Hollywood’s New Star System

Janet Mock: How Television Can Be a Force for Political Change

TV is a constant presence in my home, as is the case with most Americans. According to Nielsen research, U.S. adults now spend almost six hours per day watching TV. Honestly, I spend more time with my television than I do with friends and family. Sitting on my couch with popcorn and gummy bears observing the lives of others unfolding in front of me is one of my most intimate interactions. We welcome people like us, and unlike us, into our homes. They show us what it means to be human, to lo...

Broadway Review: ‘Choir Boy’

Honestly, I was afraid that “Choir Boy” — the sweetly exuberant account of a gifted prep school boy’s coming of age, written by “Moonlight” Oscar winner Tarell Alvin McCraney — would be swallowed up in a Broadway house, after winning us over in an Off Broadway staging in 2013.  But aside from the odd set […]
