Critic's Notebook: The Emmy Nominations

No one expects the Emmy nominations to please everybody — there's simply too much TV these days, including on unconventional platforms like Netflix, and there are always going to be shows and performers that won't make the cut, however deserving. But even when the Emmy voters get something right, like adding HBO's freshman hoot Silicon Valley to the best-comedy contenders, we still find ourselves griping over where they stumbled, nowhere more glaringly than in the drama-series race. (For a list of nominees in the major categories, go here.)

Patton Oswalt Previews the Film Independent Spirit Awards

The day before Hollywood's biggest stars don their gowns and tuxedos for the Oscars, they cut loose and drink up on the Santa Monica beach during the Film Independent Spirit Awards. This year, stand-up comedian/actor Patton Oswalt hosts the laid-back affair (airing Saturday, March 1 at 10/9c on IFC). "I'm doing as little as possible [to prepare]," Oswalt admits. "I want to be as relaxed and boozy as everyone I'm performing for. If I'm too focused, I'll just freak everybody out." But one tongue-in-cheek stunts has already been nixed: Oswalt will not be allowed to present live birds to this year's winners, as he had previously intended.

Top Videos: Kids Tackle Oscar Films, Ellen and Minnie Driver's Downton Audition

Weekend Review: About a Boy, Fisher Sneak Peeks, Downton Finale

This week's gold-medal question: Can NBC reverse its spotty track record when it comes to using the ratings boost of the Olympics to launch new programs? (Remember the Summer 2012 debacle when the network interrupted the flow of London's Closing Ceremony to inflict Animal Practice on an unwilling captive audience?)

The news is better this weekend, during the closing nights of the Games. The comedies getting a sneak peek are considerably more entertaining than Animal Practice — what wouldn't be? — and they won't air until after that night's Olympics packages are finished.

First up is NBC's best new comedy of the season (including the star-driven disappointments that flopped on Thursdays this fall): About a Boy, airing Saturday night at approximately 11/10c before moving to its regular time period next Tuesday at 9/8c. This charmingly offbeat ... read more
