Emmys 2020: Who won big at the first virtual ceremony
"Emmy's happened last night. The last couple days I want to say like through last week, there was some of the you know, technical Emmys and Creative arts Emmys and they've all been I've been seeing like the results of those, but these were the actual Actors and actresses and shows and You know the hole, but it was It was virtual, right? Yes. So every I think that they They actually put a show together to do the Emmys. Um But the other ones that I think we're just getting. I'm sure there was some kind of ceremony on zoom or something. But I don't know that those ones were televised. They might have been. No, I mean, look, I didn't I Maybe you mentioned it. Maybe I read. Maybe I didn't. It was a shock to me at whatever time nine o'clock last night when I started seeing the news roll through, and I was like Emmys. You talked about it a little remember? It was, you know, because Jimmy Kimmel was hosting and so there was some talk, but I play police. Li forgot about it and the whole thing so I didn't see one second of it. Oh, yeah, no. And, frankly, these days because of you, Khun DVR things I'd never sit and watch things in real time anyway, so Because who wants us in just to put the others on When I organize S O. The big winner last night is Schmidt's Creek. It's not the name of the show, but right The clothes. They were saying it on TV because I did see a clip after that. They were saying the word, but I don't want you don't want no trouble with you. Just don't I considered it. You know, it spells have pointed out that every time they say it, they had to put the actual words upon these people can read it with. Oh, right. You see, It's not what you think There's an extra tea and they've thrown at sea in there, okay? So I'm just gonna say Schmidt's creek because I'm with you. You know, whatever. I just guess Monday's gonna be hard enough, right? Yeah. What's our theme? We don't want to. We don't want no trouble. That's right. I keep forgetting the better. That's our theme. Well, since I should write that down here, put it up with all my little, you know, daily affirmations. So the Emmys was virtual And Schmidt's Creek swept in all this is it's actually quite amazing because it has never won an Emmy in any other season. Currently they're grand total of Emmy's up till this season when they took him all zero. It doesn't It seems to be a show that we used to have a million of them. And not that, you know. Ahh, that name in particular is obviously means that's a cable show, right? I mean, it's just It's not your Big four or whatever. But it's just a sitcom, and it's fun and it's and it's not that You could miss it, and you wouldn't care. But you could also sit down and watch four episodes on any given night and be like, Wow, that was light. It was easy is their thread that you follow along with? Yes, it's the family that has moved. Uh, I won't tell you the whole story. But yes, there's a story behind Why they're in this motel and Right off super rich. It's only that I find a just a life. Oh, poor things. Is that a Netflix show? It doesn't even say here. Oh, yeah, It's a Netflix. Yeah. So they won nine Emmys for their sixth and final season, including best comedy Siri's. It's a new record for most wins in a single season for a single comedy. Marvellous. Mrs. Mazel had had the record. They said it in 2018 with eight and then they got eight more in 2019. And I don't know if this means that Mrs Mazel was just completely shut out. Oh, end because all the comedy awards seemed to have gone to Schmidt's Creek. The cast swept the acting categories, and that's the first time a comedy Siri's has done that Eugene Levy and Catharine O'Hara won best actor and actress and Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy, one supporting actor and actress. And they're saying here that's never happened. So congratulations to them. Daniel Levy also set a record for most wins for an individual in a seat in a single season with four because he also got trophies for writing and directing and Best comedy Siri's because he's a producer. So he actually technically that four Just for himself personally. Zero m. He's heading into the night. They never had any kind of incredible. But I guess you know, with my cell dominating in the last couple of seasons would be hard for anyone to rack up any numbers. They also set a record last night at the Emmys for most wins by black actors, including Regina King and Yaya Abdul Mateen. Ah, The second for watchman. Ouzo Duba for Mrs America. And Zendaya for euphoria. She's also the youngest Emmy winner in this category. Outstanding lead actress for drama. Stop me. If you have pulled any audio for any of these things in particular, I pulled some furs and die a winning it Isa from Oakland, apparently which is why we wanted to make sure we've got her on. So here she is reacting. Yeah, it is her reacting and she says a couple of things, but just there's there's a party behind her. So I know that I just want to say thank you to the TV academy to all the other incredible women in this category. I I admire you all so much. This is, um Oh, this is pretty crazy. Didn't really crying, Okay? I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating. But I just want to see that there is hope in the young people out there. I know that our TV show doesn't always feel like a great example of that. But there is hope in the other people, and I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets. I see you. I'm are you I Thank you. And yeah, thank you so, so much. Um, this is thank you. And, of course, is through zoom. So right. Well, everyone was zooming in S O.

I'll watch a little of that. Oh watchmen. Also what Jerry Falwell Jr was into Flashing people appreciating and there's a flash of him in the audience.

Just of course I'm here all alone. Of course. We don't have an audience. This isn't a mag a rally. It's the Emmys. Instead of a live audience.

Oh, okay heads and there's Courtney Cox, Courtney's there. Of course I'm here. We live together. You do know there's a lag. Yeah, We've been roommates since 1994. But I don't know is it is this live TV? Both of you very well done. It's super cute. But the awkward, you know, three seconds of science, retired ruins everything before it does. We're very well acquainted with the awkward three seconds of silence, ruining everything. That is the life we're living right now. Anyway. Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox and Lisa could row whether she just jetted home after 60 ft. Away appearance on the show the awards, though, as they handed these out So I'm not sure how exactly this happened. If only the people who were actually getting the awards had people in has Matt suits outside their homes. No, it seems that Ah, they had everybody on standby like you'd have somebody in front of your house and has been with the award, but you might not win. So that way, everybody still kind of Were they holding? Just like a box. So you didn't know if there was any in it or not. Or that there were things that they were popping out of boxes, too. And that no one boxes that seemed really mean That was a really when I think, John Oliver, go when I have that mean here and you just pulled it up for you, too. Barrett. It pops open and there is it Pops open and and some confetti sprays out. Although that is right on the desk of his HBO set. Although I assume that that desk is in his garage, no, right. Cause that's where he's doing it from. So anyway. Nominees were all it remote locations, many in their own homes. Ah, they were doing the awards were delivered to those locations by people in has Matt suits, and they say someone had to be on hand for every so there was a guy hanging out in Has Matt suit whether you won or not, Some people actually took a visit. Do you have the Remmy use of dew? So this guy did not win in his category. Vinny and Ah, and there's the guy who has He's he's holding the little trophy. He's got the ones walking away having Oh, my God by you didn't win. All that's so sad, right? Well in some categories, all the nominees were given a box and then the winners boxwood Spring open and a hand holding the statue would pop out some They? Obviously a lot of people had to know that they did or didn't when I had a time. Other highlights her H e r her belt it out. Nothing compares to you. During the Emmys in Memoriam segment.

They're saying The emotional highlight of the night was Tyler Perry's speech while accepting the governor's award. Um and then let me see if there's anything else here that I want to make sure that you I just have you have any questions about any categories Have all the categories here, I should, say Dave Chappelle, one for sticks and stones, best pre recorded variety special. Um, yeah, I don't have any questions, but I do. Look without trying to sound like I'm patting ourselves on the back because I'm not trying to do that. I give credit to anybody who's trying to do a show right now. Absolutely. It's a pain in the butt, and you'll see why they could absolutely see why they went through with it. But I could also see if they said not this year, everyone where does it go ahead? Mail you your prize and Here's the announcement work and that and the example the best example of it is that three The five second lag between the friends and less like Jesus. What is that? That's that's live. That's national TV. That's international TV right now. Well, that's you know, that's the world. We're living in pin, right? Everything sucks. The best variety sketch. Siri's went to Saturday night live and actually have a little bit of news about that. The full cast from last year is coming back this year. Usually there are at least some changes, and there were rumors that Kay McKinnon was going to leave. And she's got a career outside of this, but season 46 is starting October 3rd. And it's coming back to Rockefeller Center studio for the first time since the shutdown. They are going toe put all kinds of safety protocols in place, but it looks like we're going to get actual I'm sure will be no audience. But it will be live apparently, and that will happen there at their normal studio. So they say. The last time there was no caste turnover between seasons was 07 when the 33rd season began with the ensemble intact, So everybody who you liked last year and everybody who didn't like last year We'll be back.

Ah, it looks like You know, they're saying it's gonna happen Ah for the for the debut, but they're basically safe in the 46 season, which debuts October 3rd. I I I'm guessing that he's sort of signed on to participate this whole season. There's going to be a lot of Biden this season.

They'll have a limited studio audience for the coming season, but it's going to it's going to happen.

Empty seats and no red carpet: the Emmys in the age of coronavirus
"Jason. How did the Emmys go last night? Can we get rid of red carpets forever? And that's what I'm fine with that I didn't miss it from the show and as somebody who covers these things. They're annoying there in order to cover, especially the Emmys. The Emmys idiots usually like 95 degrees and just hot and terrible, And it's just about everybody saying the same thing over and over and over again. I'm fine without having that so under the winners, though s Creek from pop TV wins big and it was. This is an amazing story because In the first The show's been on for six seasons in the first five seasons of the show zero Emmys last night at 17 Emmys it with all the categories every single Emmys comedy category. Hit one, which is just to go from zero to everything that's never happened before. It's UN president, President Idan Emmys history and a lot of people are going to be sitting around trying to figure out why the show and it was it better in its sixth season than it was in all five seasons was that the competition was that we were all watching because of the pandemic. I mean, there's so many possibilities. It's a good show. I mean, I remember when it first came out getting on that on that train. It's a very good show, and it was fun to see. I saw some of the excerpts of the acceptance speeches. I mean, they've obviously worked so hard on it. Yeah, and they were. They were all together. That was nice to see a cz. Well, they threw their own party. They were in Canada and they threw their own party, Teo and they were ableto every all have the whole cast and crew there together, So it felt Mohr liken Emmys, then say going too. Regina King's home or Zendaya's home or something like that. It had a kind of a different feel to it. But when we did go to the winners homes that was interesting as well. Although I was rooting for chaos. I wanted things to go crazy because I thought that would have been good TV and things were kind of normal. So, Jason, you know, I hear you when you say that, you know, you have to cover the red carpet and you get a little frustrated with the whole thing. I mean, if I hear where you're wearing one more time, it's got you But I have to tell you this in my home. My wife and kids love to see. Okay. What are they wearing? And they love it. The pageantry I know people do in the most clicked on stories. Usually the next day have to do with the dresses and you know who wore it Best and things like that, And I I get that, but it also without having it and without having the I mean, they're still were a few shows. He did a show. A couple of local stations here in Los Angeles did shows as well. But without the whole thing. I mean, it's something I think. That wasn't necessarily missed. It costs a lot of money. It takes a lot of time. It takes a lot of people on DH. I think coming out of the pandemic, we're all going to look at what you know what we can streamline what we did streamline over the past few months and what we can keep that way going forward. I don't know. Maybe the red carpets one of those casualties It does truly take a village to look like that, Jason Agency way love your purest progress. Thank you so much Like the honesty very

Here are the 2020 Emmy Awards highlights
"So much nowadays traditional Glam, gathering of the EMMYS was shrunk down to a virtual version. This year, the winners had to dial in from their sofas but did to scale down show remove any of the fun while I'm joined by the phone critic Karen Cranach from welcome back Karen. Now, Jimmy Kimmel called this the pandemic. What was it like? You. Don't I was reading about the run up because of course, they had five days of the creative emmys, which was very interesting which covered documentarian sports things like that. We don't really get to see those its role waiting for the television ones television on comedy and they're all saying, oh, it's can be terrible to glitches and there were absolutely no. Glitches at all the writing was sensitive national it probably would have worked alive, and in fact, what they were doing is they were cutting back into the audience of previous years. So at first we thought Kimmel was presented to reluctance of couldn't be, and then of course, we see that it's an empty staple center with cardboard cutouts except one person Jason Bateman. It worked really really well, and as you said, he called the Pan Denny's. You can't have virus without a host modest M.. It. Last year it was host free. So he's making a double point there isn't he? Will he is I mean there is a discussion for all the wards shows that you know do we really need a host to carry through to give a a link King presents between all of the awards and sometimes you need that sometimes you don't, but he's very, very good in this effect was. Nominated himself didn't win but for for this year. So he solid reacted really well, and particularly with Jennifer Aniston was was there in I'm assuming was a prerecorded, extra it live. Where he's burning one of the emmy envelopes to sanitize it, and if the fire gets out of control, she actually does put put. The. Fire. Out on stage. Tell US little bit more than about. Who won who lost how things went? Arguably, this was possibly our final reminder. Some was that it was a blissful reminder of our recent past, but people could still make television in the same room. I think we're we're all I. Think we're we're going to get nostalgic about these virtual awards shows really because they could do so much more with with a with a regular live show somebody sends in a prerecorded or televisual link you feel cheated. Now you feel that you've got more possibility because the people can actually record something or talk to you live. So it Kinda works really well, for example, before I go to the awards there was almost apprentice reunion lease a Jennifer Aniston Courtney Cox and Lisa kudrow showed up altogether and Jimmy Kimmel's going what are you doing together and he goes she goes well, we've Jennifer says. We've been living together since nineteen ninety four. It was just a lovely surprised wouldn't have been able to happen in real life. So it was great now. watchmen with the big re reimagined science fiction. Series was for twenty six nominations at one eleven including UN series. Star. Regina. King and also best limited series which is amazing and that helped push the HBO show to Thirty Wins in total, which is very important and also Shits Creek, of course, we have to put little tm on there because it's spelled S. C. H. W. T. s. did a sweep a to record for comedy shows of nine wins and it was yeah it's it's incredible. It's last is the final. Season for that show and it was wonderful to see all of our beloved. Canadian actors. That was a hugely hugely popular series it turned up on flicks. But it didn't start with nets, which is weird. Yes it has found that second life. Elsa Bell Rutland. Well, it was really pop TV and it just it got a cult following because. I mean, these I've been watching Catherine O'Hara Levy since the seventies I mean they were at second city which the rivals Saturday night live we've seen them in American pie everywhere. These are very, very good season actors and writers and the fact that they show up with this unique show on pop TV it just goes to show you that if something's good against audience people will see

Meeting The Right Person At The Right Time
"We hope to meet the right person the thing is that's not enough you've gotta meet the right person at the right time well when she was in College Caren Kaplan knew that and she was worried that she'd met the person she wanted to end up with but met that person too early she writes about it in her essay let's meet again in five years it's read by Regina King who won an academy award last year for her performance in if Beale Street could talk she starring in HBO's Watchmen Airing. now on Sunday nights when I told Howard that we should meet again in five years to see if we or meant to be together I thought I was just being practical my idea was less about romance than hedging our beds I was only eighteen in a freshman at Cornell and he was barely twenty one we had dated since September now it was spring soon we beheaded back to opposite coasts he to San Francisco and Mita suburban New Jersey the impending separation was forcing us to reevaluate our dorm room conversation went something like this me I think finding the one is a matter of person place in time what if we're both the right person but this is the wrong place in time we'd miss our chance Anson regretted him so are you saying we should stay together me no I don't WanNA marry the first guy I'm serious about I'm saying let's give ourselves a second chance let's meet in five years I'll be twenty three and you'll be twenty six we'll see if we want to get back together Howard agree we settled on meeting at the New York Public Library near the uptown lion at four pm on the first Sunday in April five years from that Spring we wrote our play John Dollar Bill Gordon half and gave each other the half we'd written on meeting in a public place would minimize any unwanted intimacy of things Awkward for clock made sense because we could start with the drink and if things went well we could proceed to dinner and go from there if things weren't going well we could go our separate ways the New York Public Library was a sentimental choice as Englishman agers we'd spent a Lotta time around books and it was an easy landmark to fine one that was likely to still exist in five years unlike a restaurant or far although the first Sunday in April was our original choice I soon realized that it could fall on Easter and my confirm Catholic would never abide my heading into New York City that day we'd be having a family celebration so Howard I took back car have dollar bills crossed out April wrote May and handed them back to each other and then we failed to break up in fact we stayed together that summer and through the whole next school year it wasn't until the next semester when he took a leave of absence and lived in Manhattan that our relationship finally ended I started seeing someone else he found out and that was that we have three and a half years before our meeting I use that time well I had relationships flings crushes with a few of those men I wondered is he the one for various reasons the answer was never yes might have been yes if Howard and I didn't have a date planned maybe maybe not in any case most of my interactions with men whether short or long lasting only strengthened my sense that Howard probably was the one and that I had been put into a range our second chance a part of our agreement that didn't make it onto the dollar bill was that we would tell no one a rule I promptly forgot at some point told my best friend she thought the plan was created but fell bad for the guy I was seeing at the time I also told my mother in which was a mistake at the five year mark I was living in Minneapolis I was in a relationship that had been staggering along for months as for Howard in me we hadn't spoken or communicated at all for a couple of years I vaguely knew of his whereabouts from mutual friends but this was before cell phones the Internet and E-mail a bygone era where you could actually lose touch with people and not know how to contact them even if you wanted to that's what happened with US nevertheless a few days after that first Sunday in May I flew home to the Jersey suburbs visit with my mother plan to head into the city for the weekend my sister had an apartment on the upper west side and it will be nothing unusual for me to see okay with her because I always did when I visited but my mother kept suggesting an alternative plan she argued that it would be better go into New York when my sister wasn't working as a restaurant employee she was busiest on weekends now I said I have to go in this weekend being Howard on Sunday that stopped her I didn't know you two were still in touch we haven't been I said but we agreed to meet on the first Sunday in May this year so I have to be in the city when did you make this agreement five years ago I said Oh my God five years ago are you out of your mind doesn't he live in Calgary -fornia he's not gonna fly all the way to New York for this yes he will I'm sure he'll be there while I was on the train into Manhattan my mother called my sister and urged her to keep me from following through fearing I'd be heartbroken when Howard didn't show when I arrived my sister said you're trying to live your life like a movie real life doesn't work like that he's not even going to remember much less travel three thousand miles you setting yourself up for big disappointment I disagreed she had to work there good afternoon and evening so I was quite happily on my own for the walk from the upper west side to mid town a few minutes before for p. m. found myself standing across the street from the library scanning the small crowd in front when suddenly I saw our heading toward the library steps we saw each other smiled and waved across the street and we hugged in front of the lion fortitude I learned later then sat down on the steps and started talking our conversation lasted two days then Howard caught a plane back to California doesn't immediately happily ever after for us I had to extricate myself from the relationship with the other Guy Howard I also had figure out how we were going to live in the same city that fall I moved to the bay area for a couple of months on a work assignment a few months later he moved to Minneapolis where we stayed for two years before moving to New York and yes once we were back east they marry I still resist a calling our story romantic friends who had heard the story tended to exaggerate the details saying things like and you didn't see each other for ten years actually it was a five year plan and it was only three years that we were fully out of touch or they'll say and you always knew now that was the whole point of the agreement we didn't always know even after the meeting it took a while for us to move in together when we moved New York we agreed we would have to see how things worked out with jobs before making any promises what is true is how the story has helped sustain in our relationship through times of trouble I would have hated to in the story with unfortunately it didn't work out with a story like that of course we had to stay together a romantic past we discovered can help keep you belted in place until you find equilibrium still I insisted the story was about foresight and prudence not romance I only share the story with people I didn't think I was trying to live my life like a movie who would know the story was about being smart and love not starry-eyed for years I the story with I thought it was just being practical and giving us a second chance it turned out to be a good plan well the plan may have been practical a friend said recently but the fact that you both showed up there's a romance he was right it was a complete faith in the other person despite others cautions that define the romance showed up for each other we now have been married for thirty five years Howard still shows up for me and show up for him

the tree was it was most of sean was there a lot of law green screen done or is it was it mostly we did have a a significant amount of green or blue screen and we we had a lot of big sets the end you'll see to come you've seen the police station out with skype seats was amazing to be there and that is a two story set at actually but we have some more sets that are quite magnificent that were built are the production design in our department very specs goggles oh isn't that really cool to pop your property the team design that so we have big superhero fan in general was it was anything that had been on your radar yeah i would say that i am shit now the thing gene kind of coupler and stuff of ever i mean i think sam jackson answered the best you know some people don't like their stuff so you know it's true opinion you know they're entitled to around or some jokes sam he will tell it like it is scheduled uh-huh very scary man it doesn't take anything listen thank you so much i always see what you've got in store for us and the species next time round that you put that in the universe next time rags thank you you're listening to previously watchman in association with scott atlantic you can watch watchman exclusively on sky alantic every single monday at nine pm but i'm panic if you've missed it because each episode go straight upon and soon as it said for more information hop over to sky dot com so since that chats episode two ad and doozy it was what a doozy while we go back in case you missed it allow me to allow me to talk you through it the episode was called marsh she'll feats of commanche horsemanship think that's they say that and it was very much an episode the blurred the lines between the good battiston there there is a good old switcheroo from damon lindelof it was to show that not everyone is good is all good and not ever was bad as you know all that kind of stuff so we saw again a flashback this time to world war one and another example of racial justice just being swept under the carpet somewhat by history there was a propaganda pamphlet pocketed by black soldier which was later scribbled on during the tulsa race massacre again please look after this boy the same pamphlet that we saw carried by the mysterious gentlemen in the wheelchair on introduces self as well we join will and angela on top of the hill where the swinging body of judd is still there angela quickly him into custody she's she's clearly shaken we see a screaming and will isn't being particularly good at providing any form of straight and says he keeps giving the same kind of answer what was it he kept saying on the one who strung up your chief of police telling her off the cursing too much less sounding a little bit paternal he insane wait the dad tele connecticut powers even then said he might be dr manhattan but it was interesting the delta manhattan got a lot of discussion in this episode maybe team up eh to making an entrance at some point which would be amazing it was interesting that that we kept getting getting told a couple of times while stocks manhattan as a superhero and he's living on mars and now extraordinary powers he can't do absolutely everything we were we were told about weaknesses something about changing things on a molecular level or or that kind of stuff but i found it quite maybe a bit of foreshadowing that maybe the maybe there are few weeks spots in dr manhattan's powers but clearly will the man is not onto manhattan but then toes andrea quite strangely the judge had a few skeleton in his closet angela quite rightly took those two steaming quite literally and these amazing cool nights goes to have a bit of a snoop around in judge bedroom where she found in a hidden parv his wardrobe with the house i klu klux klan outfit which is kinda shocked her jude was supposed to be a mentor and ally and is this went was he on the other side as well but because of jobs murder there is a huge tension among kind of pleace versus the locals desert big standoff that a trailer park where ended up being a riot in which everybody come loses a temp including angela who she yeah you kind of take out frustrations at the death of jude on a stranger looking glass who i'm calm liking looking essentially ah is taking no prisoners.

"The everybody how you doing jamie stay with episode two of previously homes look at watchmen welcome welcome hopefully by now you will be up to speed you will have seen episode one and episode two of watchmen i episode one time i think a couple of weeks ago now and episode two was just while i'm recording this on tuesday morning so out to you guys last tonight there's a lot of stuff to get through previously in the first episode when i was discussing what we thought was likely to happen with episode with what with watchman as oh with my good friend under harrison we were kind of left with few teasing glimpses and and kind of theorizing about how coach the comic books were going to influence damon lindelof decisions about where he was taking the series we're now two episodes in and tell you what it's building up it's being absolutely crackers night i feel i feel pleasantly surprised i was not expecting it to be quite as intriguing or as action packed given the fact that the source material is relatively character-driven and quite slightly navel-gazing later on in this episode i'm pleased to announce that jani king it's gonna come on and have a chat all about watchman very very excited diagnosed as sitting upon chiwetel room with a last week and she was on top form but before we get to that should give you a bit of a brief recap is to where we are in the watchman saw yeah episode one was entitled watch over this boy kicked off with the young boy in the city in one thousand nine hundred ninety one watching that western and we immediately saw the kind of the the the alternate world kind of merging with the real world crew incidents of the tulsa race riots kind of showing you that we're heading towards something quite quite prescient incentive today's politics wchs this will set thirty years after the events of the one thousand nine hundred six kind of watchmen comic the policemen wearing the yellow masks to protect their identities there's still kind of like squid falling from the sky which is a reference to the comic books as well robert redford yes the robert redford has been president for three decades dr manhattan who is the actual any real superhero with actual superhero powers is still on mars he went abandoned earth and went to mars veasley role shack who you are no if you've not read the comics at the was a character in the original watchman with the white masks with with the rule shack symbols the rule shack during over the front of it to pretty evil character is under harrison pointed out in the previous episode of previous dale hayes now become a martyr or symbol fool white supremacy and the far-right a terrorist organization who calling themselves the seven cavalry in watchmen so they're wearing masks the cops to wear masks to hide their identity it's all pretty grim the place of tulsa lead captain judd crawford that's played by don johnson and a he has got kind of like a a gang of vigilantes would you say there's angela ball is played by john king who is a baker by day but by night is the fantastic system tonight she along with her fellow vigilante detectives red scare who's kind of amazing colorful i guess eastern european fellow in the red balaklava and looking glass they are tasked with digging into all of this this bubbling simmering racial hatred intention that is coming over in glass interrogated a seventh cavalry member in that call pod thing which is clearly just a just an elaborate of a lie detector for the first episode is very much universe building and introducing us to all the different characters however damon lindelof did have something up his sleeve and we were left with a properly properly good no cliffhanger as such but something that let you know that he was not makina bound so as angela is getting geeky with a husband towards the end there's a phone call with a mysterious votes that just said big oak tree out on rolling hail something you need to see their i know who you are don't wear no goddamn mask she gets up she drives there she sees the old man who we know is will reeves whose play by louis gossett junior responded him outside a bakery earlier with the note watch over this on his lap which i guess means that he was the young boy that we saw the beginning of the episode but surely that would make him well hundred years old gets there she sees him and she looks up and sees the body of judd turn ally her kind of mental hanging from the tree and there's that great reference they watchmen logo has a single draw blood dropped from his body onto his police badge out the proper proper good ending there were also those intriguing flashback is to jeremy irons is carried to adrian point we saw that vite officially declared dead was it was one of the headlines but is true 'cause we see him there is riding horseback these kind of like very strange servants were they in some kind of like mazing chateau so that was quite intriguing also the element of who done it to who all the people that killed good you know we saw him leave the house to see the officer shot so clearly someone nozette movements while new new way was going to be is an inside job they were spikes put down on the road that made him go outside it's all very very intriguing setting his up nicely for episode to the thing is seeing is i interviewed regina king be inbetween episode one and episode two is probably best that we just takeover fanatic you say she is android bull slashed sister night the wonderful with jani king welcome welcome welcome how the devil only anthony past the hour you good this is the second time in london this year yes the good guy pretty good going in both times were quite fantastic is it is it quite it must be really intense around the launch of such a big show you must not know where the hell you are at the moment yeah because i was told we agreed early on that october was going to be fully dedicated to promoting the show on yes i ab- finitely don't know what it is that just you know tell me where i'm going there's not i can't remember show or soon enough a long time whether it's been i guess the marketing marketed itself really in the in the fact that there's such a such a history in terms of the comic in terms of the schneider movie in terms of all that kind of stuff the anticipation has been it's been kind of coin intense but also in classic comic book doc nerdy kind of way people don't wanna find that really what it's about until the no one wants any school so it's been quite cold yet very cool very cool i mean you know there's a concern that comes from having those true fans that have been a fan of the graphic novel for years that a actually list the graphic novel is one of their top five favourite books like people seriously are.

Thank you, John. It was definitely you know, it's rough for people to see into watch. But it's also a truth. It's interesting because you. I have so many people reacted different way. When they.

'cause she said such horrible things and then our fill so bad because I've I I'm I'm thinking that. And would that's kind of what we struggle with human beings all the time the just how to control our emotions, and that was again in the book, and again berry was honoring this book view re-getting the opportunity to read the book, you will just see just so many similarities, and it's very difficult when you're doing an adaptation from a book because you're convincing in your trying to make sure you tell that story without. Without disrupting the original content. That's why so often you see in a film inspired by you know, opposed to adapted. John thanks so much for the call. They were two scenes in the movie if Beale street could talk Regina king that were particularly moving. I wanted to ask you about them the scene when your character sharing goes to Puerto Rico to confront your son in law's accuser and the scene in the hotel room where you're putting on and then taking off a bobbed wig was very moving. Tell me about the filming of that scene. What you wanted to convey in this moment of of really introspection. Well, there was so many things, you know, kind of going back to I think Maryland who called in it. It's that moment of where you're seeing the woman that has been able that is so good at controlling her emotions and soothing those around her. It's you're witnessing her within her moment of fear her moment when she's like, I don't wanna do this. But has to suck it back in because she has to that it it's all leaning on her. And normally she has Jodi lean on in times of of of of trauma. But she's there by herself in here's this woman that never probably been out of the country. What is that? Look like what is that smell like what does that feel like what is that sound like, and these are all the things. That are going through Sharon's mind in that moment in the book. It was actually show that she takes off in puts on and takes back off. And when I read the book after reading the script and found out that I got in the part, I call berry and ask him. What did he think about it being a wig instead of a shawl because thinking about my grandmother and her having her wigs in weeks for different Cajun's, and they almost seem like armor. They seem like it helped her move through whatever occasion, she was going to encounter, and I felt like that represented women so strongly so clearly about women of all colors all ages could understand that even more than the schol. And he he liked that. He agreed that he was not a woman, and that he was thought that that was a good idea, and he trusted you trusted me. What he creates a space where you feel comfortable to bring an idea to him. And know that it's not it's going to be heard the other seen Puerto Rico seen was particularly moving in the other scene was when Tisch has the baby, and you are standing over her shoulder is so Vakhidov, really emotional even. Makina here. It's you know, it's so interesting Jane when shooting that scene, I it it did not feel as emotional as it was when you're watching it in context when you're watching it in order in after you've seen an experience everything that happens in this family's life in this slice of their life. And and so to see it in real life it being a mother myself was just like. It was it was a rewarding in a lotta ways. Because here you have this beauty. That's coming through monks, the bruises. And then something that always say find the beauty and the bruises. And when I watched that scene at tiff when I saw the film, I felt like there you go. That's the beauty and the bruises..

"This is on point. I'm Jane clayson. We're speaking with Regina king this hour about her powerful performance in if bail street could talk she wanna Golden Globe and is nominated for an Academy Award. You can join the conversation does Beale street speak to you follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook where they're at on point radio so many calls here. Let me get Noelle in from Norfolk Virginia. Hi, Noel, you're on the air with Regina king. I Jane in Regina, our you. Well, no, I just wanna say I saw the movie about a week or so ago in it's very deep is very poetic. And we my mom is a paint, which is an artist. And we saw, you know, James Baldwin's documentary other update at one about a year ago, and it just the movie it self is so deep great acting. You're definitely a power punch in the film viz king. I mean, you've always been outstanding. I'm just so proud of you. And so have him send your. Hug through the phone. But this film did leave you with just almost like a tragic urban opera like the tragedy of what went on with his even still now the racism that just the false accusations and just like the beautiful love story of of just the enduring love that they have for each other still hanging their head of child and still stand by her man, you know, feeling, but it was still the disparity. I mean, you know, it's like, you know, he's still there, and it was just like a almost like a tragic urban opera. But it was so well told and everyone in the film was outstanding. I just wanna say your hug through the phone. Receiving the hug and Sinden. It right back. Thank you so much. You know, Regina king much has been written about the dearth of tender black love stories in cinema and Beale street, definitely fills a gap in that canon. Absolutely, absolutely. I mean that was I think that's what makes Bill streets. It was such a unique book as far as James Baldwin's writings were up until that point because he was able to. Push through that love theme with such tragedy or trauma. I love the way Noel kind of framed it as a urban tragedy. I think that. Yeah. Like an opera that that. But that was that's fantastic. I'm going to have to handcuff that. No, I'll thanks so much for the call Regina your character in the film. Sharon, immediately, supports Tishman. She says she's pregnant a stark contrast to Fanis mother's reaction. Here's a clip from that scene. Mrs hunt played by new Ellis upset throwing insults at Tisch, and Sharon your character, Regina, confronts. Mrs hunt and tries to reason with her. Coming. His green. Understand you. It's your grand child. What differences it make? How it gets here to tally got nothing to do with that. None of us got nothing to do with that. Regina king. What does the ferocity with which Sharon defense, both Titian Fani? What does it say about the struggles of black motherhood of the day? Would you say? Oh, well, first of I think the. It was so brilliant for James Baldwin m berry, you know, came berries at attention, of course to. Put these two women together that are so strong and just represents two different types of strengths. And when you have one strength, the source of it is fear and the other the source of it is love, and when you put those two together, you just get a. A really I think a perfect representation of fear vs. Love love versus fear, and I feel like black mothers back parents in America struggle with that every day. You know, it's interesting when I was teaching my son how to drive in one of my closest girlfriends, you know, our sons are the same age and she's teaching Merson outta drive as well. And we're talking at dinner, we went to have dinner, and I was talking about you know, the things that I have to. I'm just so nervous. I'm just so scared because again is going out into the world now and just eat even I can control even less of what happens, and she didn't quite understand that and..

"If you in the book, that's not how the book ended the book in. Did you just didn't know what happened to finding? You don't know. No. If he. If he ever got out, you just know that he's in jail when? When you finish the book, and we actually shot that ending the way Tisch finds out that Frank who Fanis five other kills himself, and she goes into labor finding that out and the baby's born, and we shot that ending. And when berry was watching it and screening it to get feedback. What he was receiving was after that beautiful seeing that you see defined when he's just so angry and frustrated but still yet loving to TIs people. They did not see finding after that point. And they thought that the audience thought that finally had killed himself as well. So buried felt like he did not want to. Patriarchs to to fathers to die in the story. And if that's how people were receiving it. He felt like it was very important to change that. So they shot a of we shot another ending. And that was the ending you saw. So that ending is actually more hopeful because very decided that win finest. Character says I'm building table for my family eat around and may not be the table that he built but his family's there together. Malbranque's so much for the call.

"Is a sacrament in. No, I lost mind. We are drinking to new life. Tissue have findings baby. Talk about this the story line here. Tissues boyfriend was falsely accused of rape. Give us a sense of of how that plays out. Well during that moment that you just play that audio. That's we learned that a Titian finally have loved each other since they were little kids and finally is like a family member. And these these young lovers find themselves in in a place. That's that's terrifying. But also one of the most beautiful moments of a couple inexperienced together. And. Tisch comes to me to let me know that she's pregnant and she's scared and our mother receives it with open arms and support. And she decides that you know, we're gonna share it with the family, and we're going to celebrate it with the family, and that's what you hear in that moment. You are really the foundation of this household, what did you draw on to make this character? Sharon, come to life. Oh, ju on personal experiences with my grandmother. And my mother my grandmother's definitely she was definitely the matriarch of our family shoes. The woman that, you know, inner church of family friends, always wanted Loretta to be around whenever they were going through anything because she has had the say, my grandmother is not with his anymore. But I speak about her in the present. Because she's always here. You know? I am her. But she has this presence. That is comforting. A my mother embodies that same thing. So pulling on just that feeling that I've always felt as a child as a mother being part of a family that is very supportive and also just recognizing that it's very rare to see ourselves in. Cinema or on television, where the mother and father is in the home and loving on each other and creating space for their children to thrive, and that was just so important to me to get that right to represent that. Honestly. And I think it was the same that I think it was the same for Coleman KiKi Antion a-, and defined that we we knew we had a responsibility to bring an honest portrayal to the rivers, family and Fani. James Baldwin wrote Beale street in nineteen seventy four but the issues that the book highlights about race. And rape and mass incarceration are still very much a part of our national discourse today, Regina king. How do you see this film fitting into the context of those conversations today? Will is interesting. I mean it James Baldwin his just he has been such an eloquent voice for America. You know, you know, of course, he is a black man. And he was speaking with right? Many essays about the systemic injustices that occur against black Americans. But you know, one of his the thing that's so beautiful about him is as he would write and speak with so much fire. He has so much love. I mean, one of his quotes that I think is represent two. He is the most who he was as he said, we can disagree and still love each other unless you're disagreement is rooted thinking, my oppression that denial of my humanity and right to exist. And it's interesting that he said that so long ago, but yet we're still in so many different ways, you know, even just I don't wanna get into politics. But just we still have a problem. Understanding the difference between disagreement and oppression. And that's just really frustrating and sad. But. I feel blessed to be part of a piece of art. That is. Representation of how far we haven't come. Let me get a listener in here from New Orleans who has a question for you. Regina, king male. You're on the air. Welcome to unpleasant with Regina king. Hi, thank you so much for taking my call. I'm Regina, can I just wanted to tell you that was. Yeah, I really enjoyed that film. And and thank you for making that making that a performance, I had a question about the way that the film ended, and you know, one of the things that I found most painful and poignant about that film was how it didn't really have a concise ending, and that kind of spoke to I guess, the perpetual nature of nothing cars ration-, how it really doesn't have an ending do you? I guess maybe it's more have any any comment on on that aspect of the film? Yes. Absolutely. Thank you. Excuse me. That was a wonderful choice that very Jenkins made..

"Hey there movie fans. Welcome back. And I say back in a very big way to collider's for your consideration our weekly award season show and bully are we back with a very special episode. First of all, welcome back Perry number off. Welcome back. Jeff snyder. The first question is really how much did you miss me? I mean, really come on. That's the big question. You're the star energy energy. You were the star onto the top of my minora. I could not wait to see the both of you to talk about last night's holy shit moment to happen that the very end. S word all my God. I tweeted I texted you right away. What did that say? I'm pretty sure it was something along the lines of holy shape. With a lot of ease. Holy like after the Lal and moonlight thing. There is no holy shit moments anymore. Like, I took the cakes different. The two completely different kinds of shifts. That was the gold standard of holy shit moments. The mama moonlight. Moonlight said shit late ten. How we're starting a brand new year. We are starting a brand new year brand new episodes of collider FIC. And boy, we just really have a lot to talk about because last night's Golden Globes. There's there were some really really good upsets, including the very very last last ward of the night. But should we even get into that? Or should we work our way up which award? Do you want to discuss I? Oh, I can't tell if we should build up like you said or not. But the first thing that comes to mind was my favorite moment of the entire night. And it was when Regina king took the best supporting actress win because going into it. I predicted vice simply because the Globes get vice more nominations than any other movie out there. I thought that was a sure sign that yet. They really liked vice and what wound up happening in in the end is I think they took one out of six of the of the nominations, they got and clearly that means one didn't go to Amy Adams, even though it's a great performance, but a well-deserved win for Regina kings. Everybody puts their list out there, and it's always should win will win. I thought the will win was one hundred percent Amy Adams, the should win across the board should have been Regina king. And she got it. While the great thing about her win was first of all just on your point about vice getting just one award. First of all one thing. Had to say about the Golden Globes. And I know you've got a lot to say about the zoo. Boy, I cannot wait to hear every word of it Snyder butts traditionally the Hollywood Foreign Press the organization which votes for the Golden Globes, they they do tend to spread the love between films. The only time in recent years when that did not happen was two years ago. When LaLa land won all seven Golden Globes that it was nominated for it is the most honored movie and Golden Globe history for whatever that's worth. But they did spread the love last night and the per still surprises, and I agree with you about Gina king. I mean, she should have won. She did win. But her speech was still a really really nice surprise. Because what she vowed which was she she was incredible with her speech. But that that value to have fifty percent women working on all of her productions. That's the kind of thing. That makes a big difference. It makes a big difference in the industry for for years and years to come. Dear God, I hope but also when we just narrow it down to this award season a well-deserved win for her..

"It was at was so good. You see as the the woman is like telling her story, you see Regina king realized she's losing. And losing about like, she is she's not this woman is not gonna come back. And I'm like does she went there? The woman she knows how traumatic event must've been issue gets. I know you don't wanna relive this at need you to issue sees as woman is talking about it. She can't get the woman is I don't know what happened, but they presented him to me until pick him probably add to pick him. And I say that because I thought I thought what she said was feeding thought about that scene. One. Like, I did not get the wig. Like there was this whole wig seen the just take it off and put in my calm and going out, and it's like densities and not hitting right? It felt. Again, it was one of those things where it's like the scene standing on its own as very beautiful scene, but the scene. Yeah. But also, I'm sorry to your is pivoted. I thought what was said was they asked me to him out in a lineup and two I kept thinking what did the lineup. Look like, right. So the lineup was like all white guys. And this one guy, I don't know for sure. But she she said is she said is because Regina king goes, you you've never you'd never saw him until the Lana you didn't know him as she goes. They told me the pick him up picked him, and I'm like. This medically after the. What's interesting about it is you're just leaving one word, which is out. And and so I think it just depends on how you listen to it. Because I I heard it this way to she. She says they told me to pick him out. So I picked him out. Oh, gosh. Mind blown did. They say, yeah. And Pick him pick out. him out pick out him or or is that just like her? Exactly the guy. But then that question is because what we're Gina goes is that an even the lawyer. London. I'm not confused on what he said. But he's like the. Not professional, but like the top whatever was the cop being like, this is the guy, and I think so to do that that is what it is. I do think that that is the thing. But I think that there's supposed to be a little bit because you do to me I think we should have seen some of the night. Come on like because we're supposed to believe like is questionable. Did he do it? But I don't think we are. They were supposed to think he's innocent. But I'm my so it wasn't action till that point where I was like could he be right? And I don't know if it was her phrase, it'd be like I can tell you never been raped. She seems so serious the whole house like, obviously, they like he did not do it. They're just like using him that cop had a grudge, whatever whatever. But the way she was like you've never been raised. Like, you have not clearly as if she knows. You'll know you're pisses is when you see them, right? And so it was hard for me to be like oh shit. Like could she I know? And that's. Whereas I I I think the I think at the end of the movie we are supposed to conclude that he was falsely accused especially because of when he like kind of set out like where he was and relationships and all that stuff. It was like, no, he definitely didn't do it. But then, but this is the thing that I was kind of talking about the beginning was like the movie didn't for me deal with the complexity of this issue in a way that felt satisfying. It just made me feel like kind of like I was just like this is all and maybe that is the point to feel gross. I guess I felt gross the whole movie, but they'll gross comfortable the whole movie. And I do think that that is the point of so much of it not the whole thing. That's. Early. And then because the other thing about that is like that's different than just racism like that's like, the that's like the.

Yeah, I mean, people I always try to say never say never, but I think there's so much legal stuff involved with that. And you know who owns what? And. Yeah, it's just it's just unfortunate, but Aaron was I think, very honest about his role in it. You know, times when I was speak to him and he just he needed to exit that situation. So his soul could be right. And after that, you know, Aaron went on to have twins, and then another child and it just it just kind of it's interesting how the universe works that way, you know he and his wife were trying before that. And then after that situation removed itself from itself from the from from his his world, other things opened up. Why would say for those who've never seen the boondocks just go watch the Martin Luther King episode. Dow just watch watch that one. That was that was my first episode of boondocks, that was my, yes. I saw that the night it came out. I was. Here in DC would room full of thirty brothers and the whole room got quite as Connecticut. And we watched the episode and I was shook. I was not ready to see, but it was if you've never seen boondocks, just go watch the Martin Luther King episode and all of your black friends will pull thank you for trust me. Yeah, let's let's talk about your current work. You'll latest role in the Netflix drama, seven seconds. It's a limited series that tells the story of Brenton Butler who is a black teenage boy who was killed in a hit and run by a police officer who is white. Now, Regina king plays Latrice Butler, Brenton's mother. It's the role for which she earned her. Fourth EMMY nomination. Here is a piece of Regina kings performance. This is Latrice confronting the officer who ran over her son and left him to die Layton for this moon for a long time. I thought I'd want to see you in handcuffs. Seem drag you to the streets to pay for what you did to my son. Right now. Just wanna know of. He was scared. It was paying. If we call for me. To know those last minutes were for him, Regina king as Latrice Butler in seven seconds. What is it like to kind of deal with a role that heavy as an actor? This character is dealing with a lot of anger and a lot of grief how you channel that as an actor and not have it kind of drown you cou way. I mean, there was a heavy six months shooting that show. I will say. I. Oh. Honestly, because of. I've been asked that question and I don't the answer still hasn't changed. You know, sometimes you're asked something and then when you're asked again, you've been able to think about it a little bit more. And so your answer may shift a bit. I feel like a lot of that was in me because of the relationship between the black community in the police growing up that that that that we had growing up and that was very. Extra sensitive for me having a son and just the fears and concerns that I've always had regarding police violence once. Bye. Son became a teenager because honestly, I don't think I really you thinking about so many other things as you're as you're raising a child. And then that moment comes for for black parents when the who specially parents of sons that you realize it. Oh, wow. Yeah. Now I've got a start..

"Right? All women are not hose. We're talking twenty twenty-five percent tops. Okay. But if they not all hose than what I got the pay to take them out to eight thin clip from the boondocks. Regina. How did you come to be involved in boondocks so much fun boys? I'll bet. Yeah. I actually I dish ind for Riley and I. After I got the part of Riley, they Aaron was trying to find Huey, Aaron, mcgruder, Korean air mcgruder. Yes, the great Aaron mcgruder. He was trying to find an actor actress or actor for Huey, and I don't know if a lot of people know, but a lot of times with voices that are boys, a lot of the voices are women because they, there are voices, don't change. Whereas if you actually hired a boy, there's a good possibility that the voices going to change. So I did not know that includes shows like the Simpsons, Nancy Cartwright has played Bart Simpson since the show began. Yes, yes. And I didn't know that in Aaron shared that with me when after I got in the part of Riley, so I was additioning I would read Riley with several different performers during that audition process. And I would say a few months went by and they hadn't found Huey and towed Aaron will do, you know, let me audition for Hugh, you know, I've been listening to. To your notes and listening to the things that you want and the cadence that you're looking for just, you know, give me a shot. So I went in and auditioned for Hughie. And as you hear Hueys voices more like mine is just kind of me changing the cadence. You know, like taking breaths in places that a kid would take breath. You know when when kids speak there. They they, they breathe in pause in different places than you do is in adult. And so yeah, that's how that's how it worked out. And in the addition, they asked me, what did I think I could go back and forth between Huey and Riley. So I said, I'll give it a shot and I did in the dish in and I think that also helped solidify, I think Aaron thought that brothers kind kinda sound similar anyway. You know, if you talked to my sister Raina depending on who picks up the phone, you may not know who and we're four years apart. So I think that that worked out in my favor, it's interesting and for those who don't know, we should say Huey is ten years old. The show Riley's eighth or two brothers who move from Chicago to a suburb called woodcrafts to live with their Granddad and try to keep them out of trouble with which they meet mixed success. I hear boondocks compared to another show for. A number of reasons and Chris touched on that in his Email, Chris writes what a misgivings thoughts on the controversy surrounding Aaron mcgruder is removal from the production of the final season of the boondocks and the comparison to Dave Chapelle leaving his show feeling the work was propagating stereotypes instead of critiquing them through the show satire, Regina. He not like that was just an all of that was just a very unfortunate situation. And because of that situation, I don't know that it's ever a possibility for boondocks to come back for anyone that's like just sent that question. I'm answering that one now. It happens. So often in. Filmmaking and. The TV making that the powers that be and the creators have different opinions and. I know that it was very, very difficult for Aaron. I know that it was very difficult for others that were involved who also had to exit the the situation. And I know that it was difficult for Sony to for it to in that way. I mean that that was a show that potentially could have. Never ended because while could you just imagine boondocks now will that's one of another. One of our listeners alluded to Chris tweeted. I've always wanted to know what Regina king and the freemen boys hewing Riley Freeman thought about Trump after the election. We got Hueys view on Barack Obama in season three. What about today? So it sounds like Regina. What you're saying is that the creative and.

"'cause they don't just exist in Hollywood didn't? Yes. Well, Leyla I think you hit me with that question of at the at the time. I was actually kinda speaking on it. So yes, I, I feel for myself that remaining loyal to those at our loyal to me has just allow me to navigate these industry waters in a way that win. Times for probably when when it felt like the water was a little choppier I always had that great. Team that that's helping to sell the ship. You know, I. I have been with the same agent and manager for twenty years while twenty plus. Yeah. Yeah. Little over twenty years because my son is twenty two. So I, I, I really feel like keeping that open and honest dialogue with each other has definitely. Been the reason why I've been able to sustain and then my family, you know, I I've got, I'm very close to my mother and my sister and and and and and my. Grandmother, and she's not with this anymore, but my cousins and just people that you know if something's not right, they will let you know even if it's not right in your actions, you know family. That's never been afraid of sharing exactly what they feel about you or the situation. And I think that's been a big part of it as well. We've talked a lot about the metoo movement in Hollywood and how the industry is slowly beginning to acknowledge the diff- disparate treatment that men and women receive in the business. Do you feel like Hollywood is making it easier as making significant steps in dealing with with the issues that that female talents and executives have brought up? Is it easier these days to be a woman in Hollywood? I don't know that it's. Easier. I think that now this, we're, we're at a space where an in place in time that the conversation is is out there and it's in the light. It's not talked about just amongst other women behind closed doors or when they're just feeling safe. I feel like we're in a space now that the safety goes, it's in front of the crammer and that's important. So I think we will see a difference, enhanced vibes rights from two to seven, two American crime. I have enjoyed Regina king and everything. She has done my favorite role of hers though, will always be her detective on Southland. Beverly hill writes, you nailed the role of field as parole officer on shameless. I worked in parole and probation for many years. Your portrayal was completely authentic. Monica writes my Shiro. She is a phenomenal actor. I love everything. She does.
