A solo woman could win the drama writing Emmy for just the 6th time

A solo woman could win the drama writing Emmy for just the 6th time
Like the Emmys’ Best Drama Directing category, there have not been a lot of individual female winners in Best Drama Writing. Only five solo women have ever won before — slightly better than the three female drama directing champs — but just like the directing race this year, there are three chances for another woman to join the drama writing winner’s circle.

Yahlin Chang (“Home” from “The Handmaid’s Tale“), Misha Green (“Sundown” from “Lovecraft Country”) and Rebecca Sonnenshine (“What I Know” from “The Boys”) are all individually nominated this year for their scripts. There are other two female nominees, Janet Mock and Our Lady J, but they share their bid for the “Pose” series finale with co-writers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuck and Steve Canals. The other nominees are solo dudes: Peter Morgan (“War” from “The Crown”), Jon Favreau (“Chapter 16: The Rescue” from “The Mandalorian”) and Dave Filoni (“Chapter 13: The

Review: Howard Hawks' "Scarface" (1932) Starring Paul Muni; Blu-ray Special Edition From Imprint

Review: Howard Hawks'
Normal 0 false false false En-us X-none X-none

By Todd Garbarini

I originally saw the Brian De Palma/Al Pacino version of Scarface (1983) on laserdisc in 1994 and again in a 20th anniversary theatrical screening in New York, but not since. Recently, I decided to have revisit it on Netflix and was amazed that I recalled very little of it. The constant use of profanity and the intensity of some of the violent set pieces, in particular the notorious chainsaw scene, are tamer than the language and the most violent moments of HBO’s The Sopranos (1999 – 2007) and Showtime’s Brotherhood (2006 – 2008). However, in 1983 Universal Pictures was prompted to release the film with the following caveat in the newspaper ads when the film was released in December: “Caution – Scarface is an intense film both in its use of language and depiction of violence. We suggest mature audiences.” While one might think this was a

Rick Aiello Dies: ‘Do The Right Thing’ Actor, Son Of Danny Aiello Was 65

Rick Aiello Dies: ‘Do The Right Thing’ Actor, Son Of Danny Aiello Was 65
Rick Aiello, the son of late actor Danny Aiello who appeared with his father in such films as Do the Right Thing, A Brooklyn State of Mind and Harlem Nights, died Monday of pancreatic cancer in a Warwick, New York, hospital. He was 65.

His death was announced by family members.

The younger Aiello also had roles in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, The Sopranos, Sex and the City, the original Walker, Texas Ranger and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. He is perhaps most recognizable to TV viewers for his recurring role on Danny Aiello’s 1997-98 CBS crime series Dellaventura.

Rick’s elder brother Danny Aiello III, a stunt coordinator on the Denis Leary’s FX firefighter drama Rescue Me, preceded him in death, also succumbing to pancreatic cancer. Danny III died at 53 in 2010.

Danny Aiello (Moonstruck) died at 86 on December 12, 2019.

Rick Aiello is survived by wife Arlene and their children Ricky Jr.

Rick Aiello, ‘Do the Right Thing’ Actor and Danny Aiello’s Son, Dies at 65
Rick Aiello, actor and son of Oscar nominee Danny Aiello, died of pancreatic cancer on Monday at a hospital in Warwick, N.Y., his niece Sydney Fingerhut told Variety. He was 65.

Fingerhut remembers him as a great uncle who was close to all his nieces and nephews, and a “strong guy.”

With more than 60 acting credits, Aiello followed in his father’s footsteps, appearing alongside him in Spike Lee’s 1989 classic “Do the Right Thing.” His father earned an Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Salvatore “Sal” Fragione and Aiello played Officer Long, a role he’d reprise a couple years later in Lee’s “Jungle Fever.”

Aiello also starred in films, including Christian Maelen’s “Remedy” and George Gallo’s “29th Street,” and toplined the TV series “Dellaventura” and the movie “A Brooklyn State of Mind” opposite his dad. As a character actor, Aiello had roles in shows such as “The Sopranos,

The Sopranos: 10 Best Nicknames & Aliases, Ranked

The Sopranos: 10 Best Nicknames & Aliases, Ranked
There are plenty of alluring things about the dialogue in The Sopranos and one of these things is the nicknames of the various characters. The gang of creative mobsters finds it appropriate to give each other names of terms as they see fit and the nicknamed party doesn't have to necessarily like their new label. It sticks anyway.

In a show that is mostly deep and violent, the ridiculous and well-thought-out nicknames give viewers something to either think about or laugh about. Surprisingly, Tony avoids getting a nicknamed and his only notable second moniker on the show is "Tony A" to differentiate him from his cousin, "Tony B" (Tony Blundetto).
