Lou Eyrich is on the Fox lot, at work on the set of the brand new season of American Horror Story. At this precise moment in time, we’ve only had teasers and a scary poster. Viewers are guessing wildly what the next season will be about, but don’t even think of asking Lou for any secrets. She is sworn to secrecy.
She has Emmys in 2014 and 2015 for her costume design work on American Horror Story and this year received another nomination for her work on American Horror Story: Hotel.
She was at work when the Emmys were nominated and didn’t expect to be receiving a nomination this year. However, when she found out the news, needless to say, there was “a lot of screaming.” She wasn’t expecting the Emmy nomination which made it all the more special for her. (Lou Eyrich)
Robert Duncan is a very soft spoken guy, but his words thoughtful and full of intent. Talking with someone about scoring music felt a bit difficult for ADTV’s Joey Moser at first, but Duncan’s casual tone made Joey realize that it’s like speaking about any other type of medium.
Duncan’s fourth career nomination comes in the Main Title Theme category for ABC’s deceased drama, The Whispers. His theme is the only nominee from a show on a major network. While the other themes are flashier, Duncan’s score is unnerving and creepy, but there’s a tinge of otherworldly hope in it, too. It definitely leaves you wanting more. Duncan uses a lot of unconventional sounds in his music, and he told Joey about the difference between scoring television and film. They even delved into Castle, the show Duncan worked on the most. (Robert Duncan)
Jill Soloway’s newest Amazon show definitely has an eye-grabbing title: I Love Dick. Surely, there are a lot of critics and bloggers out there trying to think of the wittiest titles and jokes to accommodate their reviews. After you watch Soloway’s new offering, however, you probably won’t be capable of cracking anything other than your curiosity. I Love Dick is easily the best pilot that Amazon has released so far this year. It’s amusing, absurd, and, best of all, allows Kathryn Hahn to take center stage. (I Love Dick)
NZT-48, the pill dramatized in both the film and television versions of Limitless, does not exist in real life. Sure, a half-dozen internet ads or late-night informercials claim the opposite, but the pill as rendered in CBS’s now-cancelled freshman series is a work of fiction. Still, after a 20-minute conversation with Limitless’s accomplished composer Paul Leonard-Morgan, you may wonder if that pill doesn’t exist after all. At the very least, you start questioning how you’re spending your day. (Paul Leonard-Morgan)
They asked me what day it was, and I said, ‘Well, it’s Thursday.’ You’re the only person in Los Angeles who doesn’t know what day it is, they told me. It was really surreal and fantastic. I thought they were for other people, not for me.
In an on-going series, Clarence Moye makes the Emmy® case for Better Call Saul to win the Outstanding Drama Series Emmy. As the Emmy voting period winds down, the writers of AwardsDaily TV will pour out their hearts and minds to try and convince Emmy voters to follow their expert opinions.
Better Call Saul represents television’s current greatest underdog story. It’s fitting that the sophomore season of AMC’s hit continues to face HBO’s juggernaut Game of Thrones in the Drama Series race. All evidence points to a Game of Thrones win, and you can hardly argue with what feels inevitable. Still, it’s not difficult to imagine a Better Call Saul / Game of Thrones duel as the Emmy incarnation of the series’ persistent Jimmy McGill / Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill rivalry. Everyone loves an underdog, right? (Better Call Saul)
If you think you know Tony Hale’s performance as Veep’s subservient Gary, think again. Even I took it for granted. It wasn’t until a second viewing really turned me onto the sheer brilliance of Tony Hale’s physical comedy. Your eyes gravitate toward star Julia Louis-Dreyfus or toward the bumbling, Keystone Cops White House staff members, but Tony Hale’s Gary is laser focused on the action. Gary often seems to live in an alternate universe, busying himself with who knows what so emphatically that it almost becomes a story behind the main story. (Tony Hale)
He’s held the belief this entire season that why didn’t people just hand her the presidency? She’s obviously the best candidate. He thinks they have Jesus in front of them, but they just don’t realize it.
