Olivia Colman could finally be the favorite at the SAG Awards thanks to ‘The Crown’

Olivia Colman could finally be the favorite at the SAG Awards thanks to ‘The Crown’
Olivia Colman earned her maiden Screen Actors Guild Award nomination earlier this year in Best Actress for her turn as Queen Anne in “The Favourite,” which she ended up losing to Glenn Close (“The Wife”). But she could now follow up her loss with the sweet smell of victory for playing a different British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, on the third season of Netflix’s “The Crown.” She has already ascended to the top of our combined SAG Awards TV drama actress odds ahead of the Nov. 17 release.

As part of a cast overhaul to accurately depict the aging of the characters, Colman is taking over the role from Claire Foy, who played the queen in the first two seasons. For her performance, Foy not only prevailed at the Golden Globes (2017) and Emmys (2018), but also nabbed two consecutive SAG statuettes (2017-18), which bodes well for Colman’s chances this year.

Grey's Anatomy Fans Can't Handle Cristina Yang's Recent Text to Meredith (Neither Can We)
It's been four score and several years since Sandra Oh's Cristina Yang graced the hallowed halls of Grey Sloan Memorial, but during the Oct. 17 episode of Grey's Anatomy, the character reminds fans of her presence with a cheeky offscreen cameo.

As a reminder, Cristina leaves Grey Sloan Memorial in season 10 when she moves away from Seattle to lead a cardio-thoracic department at a hospital in Switzerland - but that doesn't mean she isn't still in the know when it comes to the hospital's drama. In Thursday's episode, Meredith suffers from an intense case of foot-in-mouth disease when she accidentally publishes a list of problems she has with the medical field and, more specifically, with Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Since Meredith is already on superthin ice after committing insurance fraud, defiantly refusing to apologize for her actions, and attempting to practice medicine while her medical license is under review, it's

  • Popsugar
Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer may have a bewildering, hard-to-define relationship while in character as Eve Polastri and Villanelle, but when the cameras stop rolling, the Killing Eve costars share a real-life friendship that's as pure as it gets. Case in point: when Jodie recently beat out Sandra and took home the Emmy for best leading actress in a drama series, Sandra could hardly contain her excitement despite losing, as she jumped out of her seat and embraced Jodie before she took the stage. Women supporting women, you guys - it's a beautiful thing.

Lucky for me and the rest of the dedicated Jandra (Sandodie?) stans out there, we don't have to wait too much longer to witness Sandra and Jodie's hypnotic on and offscreen bond.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: The Best and Worst of Last Night’s Premiere
Saturday Night Live” returns for its 45th season with now-four-time host Woody Harrelson and first-time musical guest Billie Eilish. Harrelson’s first “SNL” hosting gig was nearly 30 years ago, 30 whole seasons ago. Everyone’s favorite “SNL” cast member, Alec Baldwin, also hosted on that season. As did Fred Savage and Rob Lowe, in back-to-back episodes, if you’re a fan of “The Grinder” and care about that kind of kismet. Eilish was not born at this point. Nor was she born at the point of Harrelson’s second hosting gig, in 1992. Yet the generational gap between this season premiere’s host and musical guest is not the strangest choice. It’s more what this season premiere chooses to do — or really, not do — with its multi-time host.

Variety’s TV Critics Break Down the Highs and Lows of 2019 Emmys

  • Variety
It may have been a listless ceremony, but the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards picked up steam as a bevy of surprise winners came to dominate the evening.

These fresh faces livened up the occasion, but it remains to be seen whether their victories mean a fundamental shift in the way the Television Academy votes is taking place. Here, Variety’s television critics discuss the highlights — and lowlights — of the night’s proceedings.

Daniel D’Addario: Hail “Fleabag”! I’m still stunned as I write this that Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Amazon Prime Video series performed as well as it did on Emmy night, winning prizes for Waller-Bridge’s writing and acting, Harry Bradbeer’s directing and — startlingly, given its more established opposition — comedy series. It beat Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and HBO’s “Veep,” the two most recent winners of the award — quite a feat for a series whose

Five Key Takeaways From the 2019 Emmy Awards

  • Variety
Five Key Takeaways From the 2019 Emmy Awards
The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards offered up several pleasant surprises — wins for Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Billy Porter, to name two — as well as a few less well-received moments. Here are the top five takeaways from the night.

A Long, Host-Free Affair

Fox followed in the Oscars’ footsteps and opted for a host-less Emmys this year. However, while the film awards show saw a spectacular bump of almost 30% in the ratings after ditching an emcee, there was no such luck for Fox on Sunday night.

Instead, the ceremony opened with a piano falling on Homer Simpson — a fitting image as the ratings also came crashing down. The show slipped to an all-time low of 6.9 million total viewers and a less-than-stellar 1.6 rating among adults 18-49, according to Nielsen. The Oscars achieved a tighter show by cutting out superfluous host bits, whereas the Emmys somehow seemed to drag on forever.
