My 2014 Emmy Nomination Wish List

May 17, 2014

Hey everyone,
What's In The Box?I’m baaaaack… Sorry for the delay between posts, but luckily I have been quite busy. I shot an episode of Grey’s Anatomy opposite the lovely Sandra Oh (more on her later), booked a new webseries to shoot in June, and Co-Produced my first feature film Like You Mean It. It’s been a wonderful time, but I have missed ya’ll.

So, I’m back with another blog on entertainment awards because I’m a little obsessed. TV’s big night, The Emmy Awards, will happen in late August with nominations due in early July. With that said, I am hereby recommend the following people on my Emmy Nomination Wish List… Now don’t fret, I still love a ton of people and shows that will probably grab nominations like Downton Abbey, Maggie Smith, Sofia Vergara and Clare Danes. However, I wanted to shine a light on some serious long shots along with my personal favorites and a few surprises. Take a look below and then let me know who you’d love to see grab an Emmy nomination this year.

CBS Bets On Laughs with their 2013 Fall Schedule

May 15, 2013

the-crazy-ones-robin-williams-sarah-michelle-gellarApparently CBS is ready to make Thursday night “Must See TV” again as they attempt to conquer the night NBC owned with hit comedies for decades with their first two-hour comedy block this fall. Joining hits The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men on the night will be the new Robin Williams/Sarah Michelle Gellar comedy The Crazy Ones and the Wil Arnett-starrer The Millers. Those comedies will lead into Elementary for a fun night of TV. It’s the biggest move for the network which is pretty darn stable throughout the rest of its schedule… However, they will have their first split season serialized dramas on Monday nights with Hostages and Intelligence sharing the 10pm slot and displacing Hawaii Five-O to Fridays….
