HBO recently released the Golden Globe-nominated series’ Season 2 trailer, which is set to the rousing tune of Fun’s “Some Nights,” and features the arrival of …READ MORE & WATCH VIDEO


Backstage at the Golden Globes: Who Said What?

Matt LeBlanc, EpisodesOn playing "Matt LeBlanc":"I don't mind being the brunt of the joke if they're good jokes -- and thus far, they've been good jokes."On the undying Friends movie topic:"I don't see that happening.... Sex and the City was a single-camera show, like a film.... Friends was about this finite period in six people's lives. Your imagination... is going to do more justice than a movie."

Enlightened's Laura Dern on Season 2 Hopes: 'It's Your Moral Duty as an American to Watch'

DW copy 2

It’s not your average TV show that draws its inspirations from I Love Lucy, Norma Rae, and the Occupy Wall Street movement, but that pretty much sums up Laura Dern’s vision for Enlightened, her HBO comedy that last week wrapped its first season and snagged two Golden Globes nominations — for Best Comedy Series and Best Actress in a Comedy Series. Dern, who co-created, executive produces, and stars in the series, caught up with TVLine about her vision for Season 2 (if HBO, in fact, orders more episodes), the double-standards that still get lobbed at complicated female characters, and why people who were annoyed by the show’s pilot episode are actually its ideal audience. …READ MORE

Callie Thorne (Necessary Roughness) - Best Actress in a Drama

"It's a really big deal for little Callie Thorne. [Laughs] I spent the night at my mother's and was just dead asleep with my cell phone trilling with text messages and also trying to ring at the same time. … I was sleeping in the living room. I leaped out of the living room, and I jumped on my momma's bed. [Laughs] I scared her so badly. Basically, when she realized what was happening, we both started jumping on the bed."

Some of TV’s biggest stars and producers got an extra special wake-up call this Thursday morning in the form of a Golden Globe nomination.

enlightened_dern_DW-1

True confession: I’ve never truly forgiven HBO for canceling The Comeback — Lisa Kudrow’s scathing examination of the Hollywood machine and unflinching/unsettling look at basic human insecurity — that lasted for one brief, dazzling, and painfully hilarious season back in 2005. (All together now: “Note to self: After a long day at work, I don’t wanna see that!”)

Flash forward to 2011 — and more specifically to Monday night’s season finale of the network’s equally brilliant/wince-inducing/honest/infuriating Enlightened …READ MORE
