PGA Awards predictions: ‘The Americans’ will continue its winning streak with a Best Drama Series victory

PGA Awards predictions: ‘The Americans’ will continue its winning streak with a Best Drama Series victory
“The Americans” is having the best farewell tour since “Breaking Bad.” After winning two Emmys, a Golden Globe and three Critics’ Choice Awards for its sixth and final season, “The Americans” is the favorite to take home Best Drama Series at Saturday’s Producers Guild of America Awards, according to our combined odds.

With 16/5 odds, “The Americans” is ahead of defending champ “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “This Is Us,” “Better Call Saul” and “Ozark.” “Handmaid’s” is the only former winner in the category.

Just like at the Globes, this is the FX drama’s first nomination in the top category at PGA. Adored by critics but under-seen, “The Americans” had largely been overlooked by awards groups in its early years (unless your name is Margo Martdinale) before breaking through at the Emmys with nominations for Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys and a Best Drama Series bid in 2016.

Darren Criss, Rachel Brosnahan on a roll after winning Emmys, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards
Just about everyone in Hollywood knows how hard it is to win an award. Winning three for one performance is another thing altogether. That’s what Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) and Darren Criss (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”) just experienced after adding a Critics’ Choice Award to their respective mantles last weekend, following victories at the Emmys and Golden Globes.

SEEDarren Criss is now the 3rd youngest Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor Golden Globe champ

Unlike with film awards, we don’t often see full sweeps on the TV side. Only five actors have pulled off a total sweep of the major TV prizes: Bryan Cranston for “Breaking Bad,” Claire Danes for “Homeland,” Tina Fey for “30 Rock,” Julianna Margulies for “The Good Wife” and Sarah Paulson for “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” For Brosnahan and Criss to win three

Trailer for a New Breaking Bad Game That Will Let You Run Your Own Drug Empire

There’s a new Breaking Bad-themed mobile game coming out called Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements. It’s free to play strategy game that is based on elements from the original AMC series.

The game will allow players to “experience the complex moral decisions explored in the show, and the strategy elements will come from navigating those decisions while still running the drug operation successfully.”

It’s kinda like Rollercoaster Tycoon, only instead of running a crazy theme park, you’re running a meth empire. According to the press release, players will assume the role of an “associate” of the famous duo of Walt and Jesse. Gus, Saul, and Mike will also make appearances in the game.

Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan has also been working on the development of the game with Ftx Games, and this is what he said about it in a statement:

Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements Mobile Game Revealed

Rob Leane Jan 14, 2019

Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements is coming to mobile devices later this year...

Are you a guy who opens the door and gets shot, or are you the one who knocks? Will you let a rival drug lord go free, or will you poison the fella then dissolve him in acid? We can only imagine these are the types of tough choices you'll have to make in the newly announced, decision-driven Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements mobile game.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, reporting that Sony Pictures Television has teamed up with Ftx Games and Plamee to bring a mobile game based on Breaking Bad to life.

25 Wild Details Only True Fans Know About Lost

It’s crazy to think that Lost has been off the air for almost a decade. Few shows, apart from maybe Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad, have had the level of popularity and fandom that the hit ABC drama received. Fan theorizing, intrigue, and anticipation helped evolve Lost into one of the cornerstone shows in modern television history. The immense cast and even more immense stories allowed for viewers to experience the show long after the credits rolled. Lost ran for the old-fashioned amount of episodes per season (15-25) over the course of six seasons, giving viewers not only much to be entertained by, but also much to speculate about.

Six seasons is a good run for any show to have and with over six years (more like eight if you count pre-production) of hard work, there’s bound to be some pretty crazy trivia stemming from it. Few

‘Rust Creek’ Exclusive Clip: Cooking Meth In A Backwoods Kentucky Trailer Is Absolutely Terrifying

We’re not saying that “Breaking Bad” glamorized making meth in an Rv, but it sure looked a hell of a lot fancier than what is presented in “Rust Creek.” The thriller, which puts a new spin on the classic “girl is lost in the woods” subgenre, shows a seedier, and dangerous, side to the meth game, and much like Sawyer, in the below clip, we would be grabbing the sharpest thing we could find to get out of there too.

‘You’re the Worst’ Creator Hates the Phrase ‘Stick the Landing’ Because ‘It’s So Accurate’

  • The Wrap
Don’t ask “You’re the Worst” creator Stephen Falk if he’s going to “stick the landing” for his Fxx comedy.

During the summer TCA press tour, Falk shared his distaste for that phrase and how he’s “upset” with “Breaking Bad” for even making it a thing with its widely-celebrated series finale. Ahead of the fifth and final season of “You’re the Worst,” which debuts Wednesday night, The Wrap asked Falk just why he hates the phrase so much.

“I probably dislike it because it’s so accurate,” he said, likening running a TV show to performing a gymnastics act. “You’re always one misstep away from falling and hitting the ground and getting a really low score.”

Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 7 and The Mandalorian will both arrive in 2019

2019 is shaping up to be a very big year for Star Wars fans. Not only do we have J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode IX to look forward to this December, but it has now been confirmed that both season seven of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the live-action series The Mandalorian will be with us before the year end.

‘The Americans’ is the 1st Golden Globe series champ without a matching acting win in 7 years
The Americans”‘ farewell tour continued Sunday with its first Golden Globe win — and it was a big one, Best Drama Series. It did not win either of its acting categories, for Emmy champ Matthew Rhys or Keri Russell, making it the first show to take home a series Globe without a corresponding acting award since “Modern Family” in 2012.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association often likes to pair its series wins with an acting award. For the previous six years, all of its drama and comedy/musical series champs saw at least one of its actors triumph.

2018: “The Handmaid’s Tale” and Elisabeth Moss; “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and Rachel Brosnahan

Bryan Cranston Discusses ‘Network’ Broadway Run, ‘Breaking Bad’ Movie & Joining Wes Anderson’s Pack With ‘Isle Of Dogs’
An Oscar nominee who leaped into the Wes Anderson ensemble with Isle of Dogs, Bryan Cranston knows how to paint a picture. Before signing on for the director’s second stop-motion outing, Cranston had never met the director; he’d only seen him in photos, and looking to understand the nature of one of the industry’s most distinctive auteurs, he found some clues therein.

“He certainly is a dapper gentleman, in his Seersucker suit. He’s tall and thin like Ichabod Crane, so I guess I was expecting a very idiosyncratic, interesting man. And quite frankly, that’s what I got,” Cranston says. “I call him the most un-Texan Texan I’ve ever met; I don’t mean that in any derisive way, but Texans strike me as being bold and brash, and gutsy, and physical. That’s the impression that they leave, and of course that’s a generality,
