Elizabeth Olsen Explores the Messy Glory of the Uncurated Life

During the fourth episode of the second season of Facebook Watch’s stellar drama “Sorry For Your Loss,” Leigh (played to perfection by Elizabeth Olsen) tells her editor that he’d have her copy in an hour – “90 minutes, tops” – before turning back to an empty screen, waiting for her words to come.

It’s a small moment. Easy to overlook for those unfamiliar with writing and how blown deadlines often become hostage negotiation between yourself and your editor, held captive by the most unpredictable assailant of all: your brain.

But that small moment is what keeps popping up when I try to find my way into this very story, an exploration of the the low-key brilliance of a series dedicated to both unraveling the tangled emotional journey that is grief and navigating the messy reality of depression. Because it’s not a series about bereavement or healing, it’s a

Emmy episode analysis: Jason Bateman (‘Ozark’) gives ‘Reparations’ to Emmy voters while wrangling with a drug cartel

Emmy episode analysis: Jason Bateman (‘Ozark’) gives ‘Reparations’ to Emmy voters while wrangling with a drug cartel
When it comes to playing bad, Jason Bateman has gotten pretty good. So good, in fact, that he racked up three Emmy nominations for directing, producing and starring in “Ozark” this year. It’s the second consecutive bids he’s gotten in Best Drama Actor and Best Drama Directing and his first in Best Drama Series for the Netflix crime drama, which casts him as a Chicago financier who flees with his family to Missouri to launder money for a drug cartel. Prior to that he received Best Comedy Actor noms for “Arrested Development” in 2005 and 2013.

Bateman has chosen the same episode for his acting and directing submissions: the season two opener “Reparations.” In this installment, Marty Byrd (Bateman) is trying to save his casino deal with the loathsome Snells (Peter Mullen and Lisa Emery) after they murder one of the drug cartel’s top men. They meet with the

‘BH90210’ Casts Natalie Sharp; Madison Thompson Joins ‘Ozark’
Natalie Sharp (Hit the Road) is set for a recurring role on Fox’s summer drama series BH90210.

4 reasons why ‘Ozark’ star Janet McTeer is an Emmy dark horse in Best Drama Supporting Actress

4 reasons why ‘Ozark’ star Janet McTeer is an Emmy dark horse in Best Drama Supporting Actress
Our Best Drama Supporting Actress Emmy odds currently have Julia Garner out front to win for “Ozark,” but her co-star Janet McTeer, who joined the gritty Netflix drama in its second season, is back in 14th place. While McTeer appears to be a longshot with 100/1 odds, here are four reasons why you shouldn’t underestimate her:

1. “Ozark’s” five Emmy nominations last year

Netflix released the first season of “Ozark” in July 2017, so nearly an entire year before the 2018 Emmys. Keeping that, and the stacked drama field, in mind, its five nominations were an impressive feat, especially if you consider where it ended up hitting: Jason Bateman not only crashed the Best Drama Actor lineup, but also managed to sneak into Best Drama Directing (“The Toll”) alongside co-director Daniel Sackheim (“Tonight We Improvise”). It also got nominations for Best Cinematography and Best Production Design.

These five nominations are indicative of

Tony Award Predictions: ‘Hadestown’? Cranston? ‘Constitution’? Who Will Win – And Who Should

Tony Award Predictions: ‘Hadestown’? Cranston? ‘Constitution’? Who Will Win – And Who Should
Call them predictions, opinions or hopes, but here are my thoughts on this year’s Tony Awards races. As usual, the roster of nominees includes a mix of consensus categories (famous last words) and the up-for-grabs. Voting closes today, so the curtain is all but drawn on the campaigning and jockeying and strategizing. Nothing left but the arguments, so add mine to the mix.

By the way, this year Tony Award administrators have pledged to crack down on voters who, in years past, might not have paid strict adherence to the rule that requires voters to see every production in a category. The administration has been keeping track of who saw what, and will disqualify fakers.
