2016 Golden Globes Winners Led by The Revenant, The Martian, Mr. Robot & Mozart in the Jungle

2016 Golden Globes WinnersCarol may well have led the nominees on the film front with five across the board, but it was The Revenant that was the big hit when the 2016 Golden Globes winners were announced. Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s follow-up to Birdman came away with three big awards over the weekend: Best Drama, Best Actor in the Drama category for Leonardo DiCaprio, and Best Director for Iñárritu. And Todd Haynes’ Carol walked away empty-handed. Continue reading

Game of Thrones Season 4 IMAX Episodes Confirmed, Season 5 Premiere Date Set for April

Kit-Harington-in-Game-of-Thrones-sliceA few days ago, HBO and IMAX announced that the former’s award-winning show Game of Thrones would be making history as the first ever TV series to be screened in IMAX cinemas.

At the time of announcement, all we knew was that two episodes from Season 4 would be re-mastered for IMAX screens, and that they would be followed by a new trailer for Season 5.

In tandem with HBO’s news of Season 5’s premiere date, IMAX has announced exactly which two episodes from Season 4 will be screened, and confirmed that upwards of 150 IMAX theatres will be taking part in the one-week run. And as if that wasn’t sweet enough, the Season 5 sneak-peek trailer is billed as being created exclusively for IMAX, so we can probably expect that to be mastered for the big-screen format as well.

*Spoiler Alert* If you’re not yet up to date, then you’ll probably want to steer clear of the episode descriptions below. Continue reading

2014 Emmys: Breaking Bad, Modern Family & Sherlock Lead the Winners

2014-Emmys-topped-by-Breaking-Bad-and-Modern-FamilyIt was Breaking Bad’s final bow at the 2014 Emmys last night, with the acclaimed show concluding its run last September, and it went out on a huge high, picking up five awards in the Drama categories.

Modern Family and Sherlock weren’t far behind, picking up three apiece in the Comedy and Miniseries categories, respectively, and American Horror Story: Coven and Fargo each came away at the end of the night with two to their name.

With Breaking Bad’s final appearance at the awards ceremony, it was a huge night and I’m so glad they came out on top. Bryan Cranston had already won three times in the past for Outstanding Lead Actor and Aaron Paul had twice for Supporting, but with the second half of season five being so good, coupled with the fact that this is their last appearance as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, I think they really deserved the win. And the crowning glory was of course also bringing home the Outstanding Drama Series statue for the second year running, a second Emmy win for creator Vince Gilligan. Continue reading
