The night will cap off the celebration of the year’s best in TV, after last weekend’s two-night Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Fox hasn’t given many hints about the show, which is going hostless for only the fourth time in Emmy history and for the first time since 2003. But it did say this week that Thomas Lennon will handle voice-over duties with a “refreshing, lighthearted take on the traditional factoids that audiences typically learn as winners make their way to the podium mixed with jokes, commentary and unexpected anecdotes.”
Also in the works: the music for the annual “In Memoriam
In a preview of his book with the New York Times, Van Ness opened up about his early struggles with sex and drug addiction as well as his experience with sexual assault, revealing that he was abused by an older boy from his childhood church.
“For a lot of people who are survivors of sexual assault at a young age, we have a lot of compounded trauma,” he said.
That trauma, Van Ness revealed, led to a series of other “self-destructive” behaviors, including spending hours in AOL chat rooms, which he used to meet up with older men for sex in his teens. Later on, Van Ness started college at the University of Arizona in Tucson where he began doing cocaine. And after spending his monthly allowance on the drug, he began advertising sex for more money.

India has been submitting to the category formerly known as foreign language film since 1957.
The country has been nominated three times, beginning with its first entry “Mother India” in 1957, followed by “Salaam Bombay” in 1988 and “Lagan” in 2001. It is yet to win the category.
Variety critic Jay Weissberg, who selected the honoree, said that it is not usual that within five minutes of a film starting he begins to cry, but he did so when watching “Talking About Trees.” “There is this most beautiful scene of these Sudanese directors who have not been able to make films, who have not been able to watch films on a big screen, who are expressing their love for cinema by recreating a scene from ‘Sunset Boulevard,’” he explained.
The documentary has as its backdrop the destruction of cinema in Sudan due to a toxic mix of dictatorial government and religious fundamentalism, but front and center are
The big-screen continuation of the popular British TV show beat expectations with $31 million when it debuted in 3,079 theaters, setting a new opening weekend record for the specialty studio. “Downton Abbey” easily surpassed fellow newcomers “Ad Astra” and “Rambo: Last Blood,” which are in a close race for second place.
Overseas, the royal period drama has collected $41 million to date for a worldwide tally of $61.8 million. Series creator Julian Fellowes wrote “Downton Abbey,” while Michael Engler directed. Much of the cast from the TV show — including Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Michelle Dockery and Maggie Smith — returned for the film adaptation. “Downton Abbey” now ranks as the biggest opening weekend from a specialty studio in the last decade, as well as the second-best start for specialty fare behind The Weinstein Company’s “Inglourious Basterds” ($38 million).

“Downton Abbey” was projected before the weekend for an opening in the high teens and expected to leg out with older audiences well into October. But now it has passed the $23.6 million of “Insidious: Chapter 3” for the highest opening ever for a Focus release, setting it up for possibly an even longer run as a milder alternative to films like “Joker” that come out next month.
“Audiences were clearly ready to come back to Downton and visit the Crawleys and all the familiar faces upstairs and downstairs,” said Focus President of Distribution Lisa Bunnell. “At its core, it’s a story about family and audiences, both original fans and newcomers,

She used part to thank those who had given crucial help, such as, among women, editors Nieves Martin and Carmen Frías (1993’s “La Lola se va a los puertos), and dedicated the prize to Spain’s Association of Women Cineasts and a very early version of herself: “a young girl from Cordoba born during the Civil War who did everything possible through thick and thin to break with the inertia which destined women to become housewives.”
But, having remembered Carmen Alborch and her “intellectual lucidity” and thanked Spanish Vice-president Carmen Calvo for her support of female filmmakers, the brunt of her speech – applauded by Spain’s cultural establishment which packed out the Tabakalera’s main hall – was
The crooner dubbed “Mr. Las Vegas” – Newton has performed over 30,000 gigs on the Vegas Strip, including a current residency at Caesars Palace – adeptly handled the chorus of the 2011 hit.

The clearest example of this comes with the show’s lead character of Lola (Simone Missick), a determined and deeply empathetic attorney turned judge who forms the show’s main perspective and moral backbone.
Pitt's Ad Astra did manage to edge past Stallone's Rambo: Last Blood with an estimated $19.2 million from 3,460 locations. Last Blood took in $19 million from 3,618 cinemas, the widest count of the three new films. It's possible the order could change when final weekend numbers are ...
