  • ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Mad Men’ take top Emmy awards
    Monday August 30th 2010

    Move over, “Glee.” It was a “Modern Family” night at the Emmys. The ABC comedy series about a disarmingly dysfunctional family won the top comedy series honor as well as in the writing and supporting actor categories. Fox’s cult phenomenon “Glee” — nominated for 19 Emmys going into the awards season — earned just two Sunday night, in the supporting actress and directing categories.

  • Boost community involvement in TV, CRTC orders
    Thursday August 26th 2010

    The federal broadcast regulator has directed Canada’s cable firms to ensure that at least half the programming on their community access channels be created by community members. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission said it wants to enhance local participation on community channels with the new policy released Thursday. “The[…]

  • Director of opening film of Montreal film fest denies tiff with Toronto
    Thursday August 26th 2010

    The director of the movie opening Montreal’s World Film Festival was conciliatory, not combative, when asked Thursday about the event’s supposed rivalry with the star-powered Toronto International Film Festival. “All those wars about festivals, personally, they depress me,” said Louis Belanger, the director-screenwriter of “Route 132,” as he took the high road. That didn’t stop some good-natured partisanship from one of the stars of “Route 132.” “We think Montreal is better,” quipped Francois Papineau jovially to a smattering of applause and laughter.

  • Newcomers make partial gains at Emmys
    Thursday August 26th 2010

    The 2010 Primetime Emmys may have been a breath of fresh air, but no hurricane. “Glee” and “Modern Family” grabbed headlines for helping to revitalize the Emmy comedy category, and “Friday Night Lights” wrote a Cinderella chapter in its decidedly un-fairy-tale Emmy history by scoring two lead acting nominations. But voters stopped short of a true upheaval, passing up opportunities to inject even more change into this year’s kudofest.

  • Jean-Luc Godard doesn’t know he’ll win Oscar
    Thursday August 26th 2010

    Where is Jean-Luc Godard when you need him? The motion picture Academy has spent almost 24 frantic hours trying to reach the iconoclastic filmmaker (“Breathless”) to inform him he’s getting an honorary Oscar — and by late Wednesday they still hadn’t been able to find him. Godard, a Swiss citizen born in Paris, is notoriously anti-Hollywood. He’s also anti-flying and has avoided long plane flights, one insider said, because he’s not allowed to smoke. This means Godard, 79, could be one of the rare no-shows for an honorary award. Audrey Hepburn died in 1993 before her prize could be presented.
