A new Best Drama was crowned at the 2013 Emmy Awards as Breaking Bad gets its first Best Series award. With just one episode left in the series, it was a satisfying win for fans of the series.
Brian Cranston of Breaking Bad didn’t take home the top actor award though: that went to Jeff Daniels from The Newsroom, in a big of an Emmy surprise. Claire Danes repeated as winner in the Best Drama Actress category for her excellent work on Homeland. Elsewhere in the drama categories,
Michael Douglas was honoured as best actor for his portrayal of the late musical star Liberace in Behind the Candelabra. The film was also named Best Movie or Miniseries.
In the comedy categories, it was business as usual as Julie Louis Dreyfuss again Best Actress for Veep, Jim Parsons Best Actor for The Big Bang Theory and for the fourth straight year, Modern Family was named Best Comedy Series. In an upset, Tony Hale won Best Supporting Comedy Actor for Veep, breaking the winning streak of Modern Family in this category.
There were definitely some Emmy surprises this year, including Bobby Cannavale winning Supporting Actor for Boardwalk Empire, The Voice winning Best Reality Show away from The Amazing Race and Supporting Actress Comedy: going to Merritt Wever from Nurse Jackie.

Labor Day and Back to School time are looming soon so that means the lucrative blockbuster summer movie season has come and gone for 2013. As always, a lot of tickets were sold but there were winners and losers. We take a look back at some of the biggest from each category.
Summer 2013 Winners:
The biggest grossing movie of Summer was Iron Man 3, showing that this franchise has plenty of legs left in it. Will Robert Downey Jr. return for another Iron Man film though? Debatable. Despicable Me 2 and its lovable Minions were also a monster hit, ranking as the 2nd highest grossing movie of Summer. Other summer winners included: The Conjuring was a low budget, under the radar horror flick that was a surprise hit, Man of Steel rejuvenated the Superman franchise and instantly greenlit a sequel, Fast and the Furious 6 opened huge and became the summer’s first blockbuster; The Heat female buddy cop was a hit, and Now You See Me came out of nowhere to gross well over $100 M.
Summer 2013 Losers:
A rare summer flop for Will Smith as After Earth became the first dud of Summer 2013. R.I.P.D. was another high profile dud, failing to find any ticket buyers right out of the gate. Other underperforming movies of the summer included: The Lone Ranger did respectable business but for a Disney film starring Johnny Depp, the expectations were much higher than $88 million; White House Down failed to find an audience despite a lot of marketing efforts; The Hangover Part 3 grossed substantially less than the first 2 films; 2 Guns and Denzel Washington didn’t register; and Disney’s Planes didn’t hit with audiences the way the similar Cars movies had.

And they’re off – the 2013 Oscar derby is underway with the nominees list being relased! The nominees for the 85th Academy Awards are led by early fave Lincoln with 12 nominations, including Best Picture, Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor and Steven Spielberg for Best Director. In a big of a surprise, the visually stunning Life of Pi had the second most nominations with 11.
There were 9 films that made the cut for Best Picture this year, getting the required 5%+ of first place votes. They include Zero Dark Thirty, Les Miserables, Django Unchained, Amour, Silver Linings Playbook and Argo. Ben Affleck, star and director of Argo, was snubbed by the Oscars though as he did not receive a nomination in either category. Also getting snubbed was The Dark Knight Rises, receiving no nominations, not even in technical categories.
The 12 nominations for Lincoln matched Spielberg’s personal best on Schindler’s List, which won seven Oscars that year. Other top nominated films include Beasts of the Southern Wild
, Les Miserables and The Master. Fave actors receiving nominations include Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence.
Seth MacFarlane is set to host the Oscars this year, airing on February 24th. Expect his alter-ego Ted the bear to also make an appearance.
The world’s favorite spy James Bond is returning this year in the much-anticipated Skyfall movie. With Bond back, we take a look back at the Best of Bond – MovieGoods presents our favorite James Bond movie posters.
These are listed in no particular order but they are what we believe represents the best movie poster artwork on Bond films.
Thunderball (1965): Sean Connery – arguably the best Bond
Casino Royale (2006): Daniel Craig, looking broody and way too cool in the poster image
Quantum of Solace (2008): the movie itself isn’t one of Bond’s best but the ‘impending doom’ feel of this teaser poster is great
Dr. No (1962): classic Bond movie poster artwork here
For Your Eyes Only (1981): the rare Japanese poster from For Your Eyes Only is our personal fave from the film
Thunderball (1965): Sean Connery – arguably the best Bond
Goldfinger (1964): another classic Bond movie poster that stands the test of time
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969): our fave poster from the George Lazenby Bond years
Moonraker (1979): the campy, somewhat cheesy, 1970′s space artwork on this poster works!
