hose storms.And boy, did Gotham test him. From a green detective on a police force rife with corruption to commission of a city in need of some serious rebuilding, the show kept finding new ways to sweep Jim’s legs, shoot him in the shoulder, and encase him in darkness, like that time Lee buried him to make him take the Tetch Virus.But through it all, Jim always found his way back to his moral center. Sure, he made bad deals with people like Sofia Falcone and Oswald, but those decisions would prove to Jim that he could never take the convenient path. Consider just how few concession he gave during No Man’s Land: Even with resources dwindling and rival warlords chomping at the Green Zone, Jim managed to stay true to his ideals. He also managed not to kill Ed when he was revealed as the person who blew up Haven. Would Jim have had that strength without all the previous experiences, kidnappings, back-door deals, and Oswald s attempts to be his friend? It may not have all gone smoothly, but Jim managed to save the city from tearing itself apart without the Batman.In fact, he proved you can do a Batman show without Batman. Despite the Dark Knight being the hero Gotham deserves, Jim proved one mostly good cop can hold the line as well. It makes sense. He was the first supporting character creators Bill Finger and Bob Kane introduced into Batman’s world and has had the same 80 years to develop. But Gotham allowed him to take a journey as harrowing and as dark as any his future friend would embark upon, and he is now a richer character for it.Nonetheless, as the series finale airs tonight, let’s see what the Batman can do in his single Gotham appearance.The Gotham series finale airs Thursday, April 25 at 8pm. on Fox.Like this?

And I thought it would be fun to tell you about some of them, and the thinking behind them.DEATH – Dream s wiser, nicer, and much more sensible sister. Significantly harder to cast than you might imagine (well, than I imagined, anyway). Hundreds of talented women from all around the planet auditioned, and they were brilliant, and none of them were right. Someone who could speak the truth to Dream, on the one hand, but also be the person you d want to meet when your life was done on the other. And then we saw Kirby Howell-Baptiste’s (she/her) audition and we knew we had our Death.DESIRE – Dream s sibling and everything you want, whatever you want and whoever you are. Desire is also trouble for Dream. Families are complicated. We had barely started looking when Mason Alexander Park (they/them) reached out on Twitter, and threw their hat into the ring. We were thrilled when they got the part.DESPAIR – Desire s twin, Dream s sister. She is the moment when all hope is gone, the bleakest of the Endless. Donna Preston (she/her) will be playing her, and her performance is chilling and sad. You feel her pain.JOHANNA CONSTANTINE – Eighteenth Century occult adventuress, John Constantine’s great-great-great grandmother. This Sandman character became so popular that she even had her own spin-off series. I created her to fill the role that John Constantine does in the past. When we broke down the first season, given that we knew that we would be encountering Johanna in the past, we wondered what would happen if we met a version of her in the present as well. We tried it and the script was sparkier, feistier, and in some ways even more fun. So having written her, we just had to cast her. Jenna Coleman (she/her) gave us the Johanna of our dreams – tough, brilliant, tricky, haunted and probably doomed.ETHEL CRIPPS – Roderick Burgess s love, John Dee s mother, is a small but vital role in the comics, but she became more important as we told our story. In the 1920s and 30s, she is played by Niamh Walsh (she/her): a betrayed and determined young woman seeking to survive. In the present day, now a woman of a hundred identities and a thousand lies, she s played by the brilliant Joely Richardson (she/her).JOHN DEE – Ethel s son is dangerous. He was driven mad, long ago. Now he s out and on a quest for Truth that may destroy the world. We needed an actor who could break your heart and keep your sympathy while taking you into the darkest places. We were lucky that David Thewlis (he/him) took the part.Now we re shooting The Doll s House, the second big Sandman storyline. It s the story of:ROSE WALKER – a young woman on a desperate search for her missing brother, who finds a family she didn t know that she had, and a connection to Dream that neither of them can escape. We needed someone young who could make you care as she ventures into some very dangerous places. Boyd Holbrook s Corinthian is waiting for her, after all. Kyo Ra (she/her) achieves that as Rose.LYTA HALL – Rose’s friend, a young widow mourning her husband Hector. Rose doesn t know that Hector has started showing up in Lyta s dreams, though. Or that strange things are happening. Razane Jammal (she/her) is Lyta, and she s terrific.UNITY KINKAID Heiress, Rose s mysterious benefactor. She has spent a century asleep. Now she s awake, having missed out on her life. She s played by Sandra James Young (she/her).GILBERT – Rose Walker s debonair protector. A dab hand with a paradox and a sword cane. Stephen Fry (he/him) is a National Treasure, and we forget sometimes that he s also a remarkable actor. Seeing him in costume and make up on the dailies made me blink: it was as if the comic had come to life.MATTHEW – Dream’s trusted emissary. A raven. I expected our animals to be CGI, and was both taken aback and thrilled when the dailies started coming in, and there was Dream talking to well, a raven. But ravens don t really talk. The question was, could we find an actor who could make you care about a dead person who was now a bird in the Dreaming – one who isn t certain what s going on, or whether any of this is a good idea? And could we find a voice performer who was also the kind of Sandman fan who used to stand in line to get his Sandman comics signed? The answer was, we could if we asked Patton Oswalt (he/him). And Patton was the first person we asked, and the first person we cast, the day before we pitched The Sandman to Netflix.Of course, there are more delights and nightmares cast than I ve listed here, and we have a few more secrets up our sleeves. I can t wait until you can start watching. On September 25, 2021, Gaiman and Sturridge revealed a first look at the series opening moments, in which Burgess summons Dream and, apparently, gets some help from an unseen Corinthian. The official Instagram and Twitter accounts also unveiled the first character posters for Dream, Death, and Desire.I am the Lord of Dream and Nightmare. pic.twitter.com/8t8NI9PZZd The Sandman (@Netflix_Sandman) September 25, 2021What Is the Story?Joel MearesAs for the main plot, Dream will likely spend the season reclaiming three essential items containing much of his power – a ruby, a bag of dust, and a gas-mask-like helmet – while learning the ways his captivity changed the Dreaming and the waking world. In the comics, this story featured appearances from DC characters like Dr. Destiny, Martian Manhunter, and John Constantine, but it is unclear if the TV series will maintain these comic book ties. For Instance, although John (and actor Matt Ryan) will be absent from the series, his ancestor Johanna Constantine will take his place in the scoundrel s team-up with Dream.Additionally, issue #4, “A Hope in Hell,” introduced the version of Lucifer Morningstar featured in Netflix’s Lucifer. While we initially theorized Lucifer star Tom Ellis might do another cross-show cameo (he appeared briefly in the Arrowverse’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event), the part will be played by Game of Thrones’ Christie. Considering Lucifer is far more androgynous in The Sandman – and quite like David Bowie in his first appearance – the choice of Christie is inspired. Although, it should be noted that the Prince of Darkness only makes a handful of appearances in the series, so it remains to be seen how often we will actually see Christie on screen.Though Sturridge and Christie’s involvement was rumored for some time, Netflix confirmed their participation in January 2021. Other actors confirmed at the time include Acheampong as Morpheus’s trusted librarian Lucienne; Bhaskar and Chaudhry as Cain and Abel – yes, that Cain and Abel; Holbrook as the Corinthian, the murderous dream who becomes more of a threat in the comic book’s second storyline; and Dance s Roderick Burgess, a key figure in Dream’s 20th century captivity.The program will also update the story, with Dream escaping his captivity in the 2020s instead of the 1980s. As Gaiman told CBC Radio in November of 2019, “Instead of him being a captive for about 80 years, he s going to be a captive for about 110 years and that will change things.” But, as he learned adapting Good Omens to the medium, changing things is part of the fun; though, fans surely wonder how much of the comic’s undeniably goth aesthetic will survive the update. Will Morpheus’ sister look passé with her Cleopatra eye make-up and ankh pendant? Or will it have retro charm by the time we first hear the sound of her wings?Gaiman is already willing to change Dream s look, originally inspired by Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy. Nevertheless, he promises a more or less faithful telling of the story is on its way.When Will It Premiere?The series will likely appear sometime in 2021; of course, that could change in the current climate. And though it is a while to wait, there is good news: Gaiman, Goyer, and Heinberg have already plotted season 2.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.

In Hollywood (2019) 85% was the toast of the Riviera, the Pulp Fiction director was shut out from all of the final night s major awards. This year s jury was led by the Jury President and Birdman director Alejandro González Iñárritu and included actress Elle Fanning (Teen Spirit), and directors Pawel Pawęska (Cold War) and Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite); the group picked a surprising selection of varied work from famed directors and dynamic newcomers.Most of the night s prizes were given to films that championed the poor, marginalized, and unsung, including Snowpiercer and Okja director Bong Joon-ho s Parasite (2019) 98%, which took home the festival s biggest prize, the Palme d Or. French actress turned director Mati Diop continued to make history as the first Black female director to take home the Grand Prix, the festival s second most prestigious prize, for her debut film Atlantics (2019) 95%. (Diop already made history by being the first Black woman to compete for the Palme d Or in the festival s 72-year history.)

(Photo by Daniele Venturelli/Getty Images)It s a shame Song Kang-ho isn t better known to international audiences, because he has been quietly dominating South Korean cinema for the past couple decades and change. Though he never underwent any professional training as an actor, he clearly possessed the kind of singular talent required to move seamlessly between genres, and he found willing partners in some of the most gifted directors to come out of Korea. This led to fruitful partnerships with people like Lee Chang-dong (Green Fish, Secret Sunshine), Park Chan-wook (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Joint Security Area, Thirst), and Kim Jee-woon (The Foul King; The Good, the Bad, the Weird; Age of Shadows), but his work with one Bong Joon-ho may be his best known and most significant.It was Bong s 2007 creature feature The Host that propelled both him and Song into the international spotlight, and when they later reunited for Bong s English-language debut, 2014 s Snowpiercer, the film was widely hailed as a brilliant, ambitious dystopian vision this is nothing to say of their very first film together, 2003 s serial killer mystery Memories of Murder, which is a decidedly smaller film, but an equally compelling and masterfully told story. To be clear, all three of those movies are Certified Fresh at 90% on the Tomatometer or higher, but it s their latest collaboration that has people talking about the Oscars.In Bong Joon-ho s Parasite, Song Kang-ho plays the patriarch of a family of con artists who bamboozle their way into a wealthy household by providing needed services; everything goes according to plan until, of course, it doesn t. To say the film has earned rave reviews is an understatement, as it earned the Cannes Film Festival s coveted Palme d Or by a unanimous vote, and many predict the darkly comedic social satire will win a host of other awards en route to the Oscars. We chatted with Song Kang-ho ahead of Parasite s release, and speaking through a translator, Song gave us his Five Favorite Films, revealing a dry sense of humor in the process: I didn t really have time to think about what my favorite movies are. I guess I ve been busy.

The first of many Certified Fresh awards came with her next movie, Rocket Science; being cast as Jessica in the Twilight franchise meant Kendrick would have a high-profile job waiting for her for years to come.Her career would soon become defined by steady versatility, appearing in a wide range of films like End of Watch, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Cake. Kendrick is particularly adept in comedy hybrids, as seen in in The Voices, A Simple Favor, 50/50, and Up in the Air, the last of which garnered her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nom. Meanwhile, she s been one of the 2010s most reliable musical stars – just look at Into the Woods, Trolls and, of course, the Pitch Perfect series.Her latest films were Stowaway and the Trolls sequel, World Tour. And now, we re ranking all Anna Kendrick movies by Tomatometer!

Abrams closed out the universally beloved, not-controversial-at-all Star Wars sequel trilogy with the universally beloved, not-controversial-at-all Rise of Skywalker…Yeah, that isn’t quite how the catch-up scroll reads on the most recent Star Wars flicks. Instead, the trilogy that began with an almost unanimously adored bang in The Force Awakens had divided and inflamed the fanbase by the time it ended. Depending on which side of the chasm you sat, that ending either provided a fantastic twist and return to form, or it was a total betrayal of promising new story threads – and a certain middle film’s director.In the latest edition of our podcast, Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong (A Podcast from Rotten Tomatoes), we are traveling to a controversial title not so far, far away, and asking who got it right when it comes to The Rise of Skywalker: The fans, who awarded it an 86% Audience Score, or the critics, whose reviews put it at 51% on the Tomatometer – the lowest of all live-action Star Wars movies.To assist hosts Mark Ellis and Jacqueline Coley as they pick up lightsabers and choose sides – or, you know, give nuanced thoughts in both directions – is Nerdist’s Dan Casey, who’s such an enormous Star Wars fan that he wrote the book on it… literally. (Well, at least one book: 100 Things Star Wars Fans Should Know Do Before They Die). Will the trio decide that Rise of Skywalker rose to the occasion?

It is rare that the box office has an upset of the magnitude of this weekend s. It s even rarer that such a surprise victory does not come with the normal spoils one might expect from it. All the projections showed the adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep leading the pack with a haul in the mid-20s to as much as million. Roland Emmerich’s WWII FX-laden updating of Midway was trailing even behind Last Christmas among most projections. Nevertheless, Midway bucked the odds – or the typically wrong tracking services – and pulled out a victory with .5 million, albeit one that is the lowest-grossing number 1 in November since 2012 when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – in its third weekend and in the doldrum weekend post-Thanksgiving – grossed .4 million.King of the Crop: Midway Causes Major Upset, But Faces A Battle to Profit(Photo by © Lionsgate)Midway s surprising victory at the box office does come with some caveats. Aside from the Twilight statistic noted above, Midway’s .5 million is the lowest opening weekend for Roland Emmerich since Stargate in 1994 (.6 million) and it seems unlikely to stretch to .5 million as that film did. (Though if this weekend taught us anything, it s that we should prepare for surprises.) That would then make it Emmerich’s lowest-grossing wide release since 1992’s Universal Soldier made .2 million. It will gross more than that but in the history of November only two wide releases – not rated “G” or “PG” – have ever opened to less than million and grossed over million. They were Martin Scorsese’s Cape Fear (.09 million) and A Bad Moms Christmas (.11 million).Lionsgate can surely promote Midway as “the number 1 film in the country” this week but it is still staring down a 0 million price tag with not a lot of international appeal for its American victory tale. Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor grossed 0 million in international dollars. Lionsgate has only had nine films make as much as 0 million overseas: four were Hunger Games films and one was the final Twilight film. (The other four Twilights were released by Summit before Lionsgate acquired them.)Rotten Returns: Dark Fate indeed, for Terminator, but its Tomatometer score is rising (Photo by © Paramount Pictures)Paramount is not having the greatest of weeks. Their family film, Playing With Fire, is the worst-reviewed (24% on the Tomatometer) of the new releases this week; the nearly million-budgeted film grossed .8 million, which is hardly a disaster – and better than some projections – but not a rousing success, either. It is last week’s release of Terminator: Dark Fate, though, that is just not looking good; it dropped 63% to .8 million in its second week. A solid haul is not unheard of from here: Dark Fate is just a million behind Paramount s own Daddy’s Home 2’s 10-day gross (.21 million) just two years ago as it went on to squeak out over 4 million. But its second weekend is over .5 million less than what the Farrell/Wahlberg sequel earned in its second weekend. Dark Fate is also about a half-million ahead of The Muppets, which had a massive fallback in its second weekend back in 2011 and grossed over million. Terminator’s second weekend is also slightly behind that one (.08 million). However, an optimistic million finish means nothing without a stronger international showing and to date it sits at just 0 million when it is going to need more than 0 million outside the U.S. to break even. On the plus side, Dark Fate is one of those rare films whose Tomatometer score is actually getting better as it expands and more critics see it: it is currently Fresh at 72% after spending time in the 60s.The Top 10 And Beyond: Doctor Sleep Fails to Shine, Joker Enters The All-Time Top 50Doctor Sleep this week became the victim of too-lofty expectations. The numbers are truly disappointing though, which has pundits asking if Warner Bros. should have sold its connections to The Shining more forcefully – and whether there was an appetite for more Shining in the first place. Only four Stephen King adaptations have ever opened to over million – and two of them were this year with It: Chapter 2 and the Pet Sematary redux. (1408 and the first It were the others.) Inflation notwithstanding, Doctor Sleep had the 10th best opening for a King adaptation and at 73% on the Tomatometer ranks as the 11th best-reviewed theatrical release of a film based on the author s work.1980’s The Shining grossed approximately 9.5 million in adjusted dollars. Doctor Sleep’s .1 million start trails behind even Dreamcatcher, which opened to .02 million back in 2003. If you gave The Lawnmower Man an inflation boost from 1992, it would have grossed million today, right around what Mike Flanagan’s Ouija: Origin of Evil sequel opened to (.06 million) – though we should note that was 10 days before Halloween in 2016. The trouble for Doctor Sleep might have been with the release date. Horror is not a popular genre in November these days. Not a single horror film has grossed over million from a November start since before 2000. The Mist, a 2007 Stephen King adaptation released over Thanksgiving (and the 12th-highest–rated King adaptation at 72% on the Tomatometer) took in what equates to about million in ticket sales today on its first weekend.Also not a great genre in November: romantic comedies. At least, successful November rom-com releases have been pretty sparse. There have been some moderate numbers over the years for films like The American President (.07 million) and Love Actually (.69 million). Shallow Hal grossed .8 million, but that was sold more on its high-concept premise than as a traditional rom-com. Paul Feig’s Last Christmas began with .6 million this weekend. That puts the film likely in the - million range. As for those who are surprised Universal put out a Christmas movie in November, rather than December, it s not uncommon practice – and has worked well for some releases in the past. These November releases with Christmas in the title show the release strategy can succeed wonderfully, and fail spectacularly:How the Grinch Stole Christmas (.08 million opening / 0.04 million total)A Christmas Carol (2009) (.05 / 7.85)Four Christmases (.06 / 0.14)Christmas with the Kranks (.57 / .78)A Bad Moms Christmas (.75 / .1)This Christmas (.95 / .12)Arthur Christmas (.06 / .46)Almost Christmas (.13 / .15)A Very Harold Kumar 3-D Christmas (.95 / .06)Ernest Saves Christmas (.71 / .2)A Christmas Story (.07 / .29)All I Want For Christmas (.64 / .81)One Magic Christmas (.66 / .67)I’ll Be Home For Christmas (.89 / .21)The Man Who Invented Christmas (.35 / .52)In better news for Warner Bros. this week, Todd Phillips’ Joker has passed more milestones. Its 3 million domestic and another 0 million internationally gives the film 4 million. That means it has now joined the list of the 50 highest-grossing films of all-time. Say goodbye to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (and say it soon to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Jungle Book once Frozen II and The Rise of Skywalker open) as Joker enters the list this weekend at 44th place; it is also headed soon to become the 44th film ever to reach billion.Maleficent: Mistress of Evil has had a bit of a rebound lately. It is going to pass 0 million at home sometime this week and it is now over 0 million worldwide. But it is still going to need about another 0 million before getting out of the red. The Addams Family is now well into profit with over 4 million worldwide, million of that domestically. United Artists Releasing (a combo of Annapurna, MGM, and Orion) had some rough box office results earlier this year with Booksmart and Laika’s Missing Link, but they have been more recently putting out movies that have been turning profits, like their remakes of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (a.k.a. The Hustle) and Child’s Play. The Addams Family will be their biggest earner to date.Check out Harriet star Cynthia Erivo s Five Favorite FilmsHarriet dropped 38% and made .2 million in its second weekend. Between that and its .46 million gross to date, the film is in the vicinity of Allied and Stranger Than Fiction, which each managed to just get over the million line. That could make it just the 18th film in Focus Features history to reach that mark.Fox Searchlight expanded Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit from 256 theaters into 802 and it just missed hitting the top 10 with .9 million. That puts the film squarely between the studio’s (500) Days of Summer, which went from a third weekend of .77 million in 266 theaters to .73 million in 817 theaters, and Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, which made .51 million in 238 theaters in weekend three and jumped into 791 theaters the next week to gross .05 million. Those films had .35 and .72 million, respectively, after 24 days. Jojo Rabbit is at .1 million.Bong Joon-Ho’s Parasite moved into an “official” wide release this week, expanding into 602 theaters. It grossed another .5 million, which is better than The Farewell’s move to wide release from 409-to-704 theaters in its fifth weekend, where it grossed .09 million. The Neon release also has a slightly better per-theater-average (,152) than Boyhood had (,900), when it jumped in the same period from 310-to-506 theaters. The Farewell had .2 million after 31 days; Parasite has .2 million (and another .5 million internationally); Boyhood had .5 million and grossed over million. I, Tonya is Neon’s highest-grossing domestic film to date with .9 million.Check out Parasite star Song Kang-ho s Five Favorite FilmsFinally, in limited release news, Amazon’s release of Shia LaBeouf’s autobiographical Honey Boy grossed 8,825 in four theaters. That is the second-best per-theater-average (,206) for Amazon to date, ahead of both Late Night (,576) and Beautiful Boy (,722), also each released in four theaters. The 2018 Suspiria remake had a ,019 average in just two theaters. It is also the fourth-best PTA of 2019 behind Parasite, The Farewell, and Avengers: Endgame.This Time Last Year: The Grinch Kicks Off Holiday Season With Plenty of GreenThe second weekend of November 2018 brought us Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, from Illumination. The feature-length animated version of the classic story opened to .57 million. Hanging strong was Bohemian Rhapsody, grossing .2 million and just getting over its first 0 million in 10 days. In third place was the Nazi monster film, Overlord, with .2 million and back in sixth place was Claire Foy taking over the role of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl In the Spider’s Web, which made just .8 million. Just before the weekend, Venom passed the 0 million mark. A Star is Born rose to 8 million and David Gordon Green’s Halloween was at 6 million. The top 10 films grossed a total of 2.58 million and averaged 59.2% on the Tomatometer; this year’s top 10 grossed an estimated .7 million and averaged 55% with critics.On the Vine: Ford, Ferrari, and A Trio of AngelsNext week a pair of new challengers for the number 1 spot emerge and most are betting on James Mangold’s Ford v Ferrari with Christian Bale and Matt Damon to be victorious. The true-life racing drama is Certified Fresh at 91% on the Tomatometer after a successful festival run. The box office must also find room for Elizabeth Banks’ new reboot of Charlie’s Angels with Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. The previous big-screen iterations both grossed over 0 million, but will this one draw the same nostalgic interest? Warner Bros. is also releasing Bill Condon’s latest, The Good Liar, with Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, which is expected to come in on the low-end of the charts. Then, finally, in limited release is Trey Edward Shults’ Waves, which is Certified Fresh at 88% from its festival run and which is being touted as a potential awards contender.The Full Top 10: November 8-10Midway (2019) 42% – .5 million (.5 million total)Doctor Sleep (2019) 78% – .1 million (.1 million total)Playing With Fire (2019) 24% – .8 million (.8 million total)Last Christmas (2019) 46% – .6 million (.6 million total)Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) 70% – .8 million (.46 million total)Joker (2019) 68% – .2 million (3.49 million total)Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) 39% – million (.3 million total)Harriet (2019) 73% – .23 million (.46 million total)Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) 68% – .32 million (.66 million total)The Addams Family (2019) 45% – .2 million (.47 million total)
The 71st annual Emmy Awards ceremony on Sunday was entertaining in spite of itself. Garish moments and excruciatingly unfunny running commentary threatened to overshadow some stunning upsets and heartfelt speeches. The Fox presentation, which scored a 0% on the Tomatometer on its first reviews, will hopefully go down as a teaching moment: Don t replace professional hosts with Statler and Waldorf–like heckling. (Actually, the program might ve gotten away with the discount-hosting format had they hired those grumpy Muppets instead.) There were some genuinely shocking and deserving winners, Caroline Framke wrote forVariety. These moments were good enough to almost, almost, distract from the fact that just around the corner from these unscripted reprieves lurked some new cringe-inducing bit. Here are the moments that stood out in a night of big highs in a show that set the bar low.1. The Surprise Dominance of Fleabag and Phoebe Waller-Bridge(Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images)British actress-writer-producer Waller-Bridge was visibly floored when her name was read out as winner for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series category for her work on Fleabag in one of the night s biggest upsets. Veep’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won the award six times for her part as Selina Meyer, was the favorite to win for her final season in the role. Waller-Bridge also won for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Episode 1 of the Amazon Prime Video series, joining Tina Fey who won both acting and writing awards in 2008 for her work on 30 Rock. Harry Bradbeer won the Outstanding Director for a Comedy Series award for his work on the same episode. Fleabag also took the Outstanding Comedy Series award over contenders like Veep and last year s winner The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The series also won awards for casting and editing for a total of six Emmys this year.2.

Step out of line!”3. Jharrel Jerome Wins As Central Park 5 Look On(Photo by Amy Sussman/WireImage)The 21-year-old actor not only defeated some major players in his category, he is also the youngest-ever winner to take home the Lead Actor in a Limited Series trophy. But more importantly, the subjects of When They See Us, which tackled the story of the Central Park 5 (a.k.a. the five teenagers who were wrongfully convicted and imprisoned for a 1989 rape they didn t commit), were present in the audience as Jerome accepted his award. This is for the men that we now know as the Exonerated Five, he said as Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise (the role Jerome played), who spent years in prison and whose convictions were vacated in 2002, watched on.READ ALSO: 2019 Emmy Award Winners4.

I m grateful at 50 to be getting the best parts of my life and that s great. But in my heart, I’m so sad I lost my sister Alexis and that trans people are still being persecuted,” she said during in her speech. “I m in mourning, Alexis, and I will be the rest of my life for you until we change the world, until trans people are not persecuted.

The category is Love ! declared Porter as he took the stage, referencing Tell s ball-starting catchphrase from the show. Porter went on to say, We as the artists are the people that can change the molecular structure of the hearts and minds of the people who live on this planet. Please don’t ever stop doing that. Please don’t ever stop telling the truth!” Porter was up against tough competition in the Lead Actor in a Drama category, including Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington and Ozark’s Jason Bateman, who took home an award for directing.6.

It feels as though the character Batwoman has been on TV for a while — what with her splashing around in summer 2018 headlines and making a special appearance in last year’s Arrowverse “Elseworlds” crossover — but the debut episode of The CW s Batwoman will be the real beginning of Kate Kane s (Ruby Rose) television journey.You may already know Batwoman is Bruce Wayne s only living relative, an accomplished fighter, and very out and proud. But that s only a sliver of who she is, what she s fighting for, and why she has a series all her own. And combined with her ties to the already-sprawling CW multiverse of superheroes, it might be helpful to get a primer on what to expect when you sit down to watch Batwoman. Here are a few things you should know about this hero as her series begins.1. It’s Set On Earth-1(Photo by Elizabeth Morris/The CW)Currently, The CW airs six superhero shows set on three different Earths. The Earth-1 of Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl’s Earth-38, and the undesignated Earth of Black Lightning. The latter two occur on different Earths because they were not developed as CW shows — Supergirl first aired on CBS and Black Lighting was developed for Fox — but their alternate universe homes also pay homage to DC Comics and its fascination with alternate realities.But as last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover made clear, Batwoman takes place on Earth-1. Which means it is possible for characters from The Flash and Arrow to make easy visits to Gotham City. Of course, that famous DC town was not always available to Arrowverse producer Greg Berlanti. Thanks in part to the way DC Entertainment handles film and television rights, the use of Gotham City icons had to be approved by several levels of management. Even a passing reference to Batman in an episode of Arrow a few years ago required executives at DC, Warner Bros, and Fox to sign off on it as Gotham was still on the air on Fox and Batman movies are always in development.Some of those barriers have been cleared to make Batwoman possible, but it means you may be waiting some time to see your favorite Gotham City villains on the show. Most of the marquee rogues are typically reserved or Batman feature films and, thanks to a deal made with 20th Century Fox in the 1960s, the Fox broadcast network always has first dibs to Batman characters on television. There are exceptions, though, like Tommy Elliot — the more recent villain known as Hush — who will appear in the form of actor Gabriel Mann in upcoming episodes and Magpie (Rachel Matthews), a fairly minor villain from the 1980s. Both appeared on Gotham, but are easier for the series to tap than, say, the Penguin.That said, Kate has her own rogues gallery, including the murderous and twisted Alice (Rachel Skarsten) and, if previews are anything to go by, the Crows private security firm run by her father Jacob (Dougray Scott).2. Gotham City Has Its Own Cast Of Characters(Photo by Kimberley French/The CW)Besides Kate, Jacob and Alice, the Gotham of Batwoman will be fairly populated from the first episode on. Other characters include Kate s stepmother Catherine Hamilton-Kane (Elizabeth Anweis), stepsister Mary Hamilton (Nicole Kang), Wayne Industries caretaker Luke Fox (Camrus Johnson), and Crow agent Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy).Applying the old evil-stepmother trope, Kate and Catherine do not get along. Kate is a loner who left home after high school, while Catherine is a mover-and-shaker in the Wayne-less Gotham. She does have a vested interest in reversing the city s reputation as a crime-riddled hellhole, however, which is definitely compatible with Kate s new job ridding her city of bad guys. Med student Mary, meanwhile, may be on better terms with Kate, but her real challenge is keeping her off-the-books health clinic in the tough part of Gotham a secret.As for Luke (based on the DC Comics Batwing character) and Sophie, it s best you watch the debut episode without a great deal of background on either, as they are the people Kate ends up interacting with the most — and for very different reasons.And since we re talking about Gotham citizens, it might helpful to mention Gotham itself is more a grounded Dark Knight place than the sometimes cartoonish city of Gotham. Which is to say, people behave a little more like everyday folks instead of the mad, wonderful, and shouting denizens of the former Fox television show. It s an important contrast for a Gotham set on The CW s Earth-1.3. The First Few Episodes Take Place Prior To “Elseworlds”(Photo by JSquared Photography/The CW)While Kate has a distinctive look, as seen in “Elseworlds,” it may be an episode or two before Rose is actually wearing that particular Batwoman super-suit. As revealed at screenings during San Diego Comic-Con this summer (and one at NYCC this weekend), the first episode takes viewers back to the moment Kate returned to Gotham after a self-imposed exile and discovers her cousin Bruce’s secret identity. Consequently, the complete Batwoman costume may not be seen on screen for a few episodes.From a narrative standpoint, this is the right way to go as it means things like the Batwoman wig and red cape get to mean something to the audience. But for those watching the continuity between Batwoman and the other CW superhero shows, this means a good chunk of the first season occurred prior to last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover.And just to make things even more confusing, the timeline has to sync up before December’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, since Kate will be featured in the story.In its own strange way, this also honors DC Comics and the way it tells stories, just without a helpful editorial caption to tell you these events are taking a place a year and a half ago. As you actually watch Batwoman, this may not matter too much in the short term — it has to tell its own story after all — but it may come up in December.4. It Is An Origin Story(Photo by Kimberley French/The CW)As mentioned above, a large part of the show s first season will form an origin story. It seemingly takes its cues from Batwoman: Elegy, a story by Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III that really set the tone for Kate in the DC Comics universe. It reveals key details about Kate’s past — getting kidnapped with her twin sister at a young age, getting kicked out of the military when her same-sex relationship was exposed, etc. — and serving as a de facto origin tale even though Kate had been operating as Batwoman for a good year or two prior to Elegy’s publication in the pages of Detective Comics.On the show, some of these details are getting remixed, but it will depart from Elegy in a key way — it will spend far more time showing Kate becoming Batwoman. Back in the comics, the character was always fully formed. But for television, it is important to see Kate making certain choices, literally learning the ropes and cementing her identity.We have to admit that choice is dramatic satisfying for a series like this. And, as it happens, Berlanti pulled this off before on Arrow. Halfway through its second season it introduced Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a visiting crime scene analyst who began a quasi-relationship with Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards). By the end of the season, he was struck by lightning and awarded with his own show. Thanks to the Arrow appearance, the audience had the chance to decide if they liked Barry while the first season of The Flash saw him discovering powers and hitting certain important milestones.And like Barry at the time of his debut, Kate is a person a lot of viewers only know through reputation or her brief appearance in the Arrowverse last year. Giving her a handful of episodes of self-discovery gives the new program — and the audience — plenty of time to obtain a clearer picture of Kate.5. It Is An Action Show(Photo by Robert Falconer/The CW)Thanks to the success of The Flash, the subsequent Arrowverse shows have been filled with metahumans and crazy super powers. Even the fairly grounded Black Lighting, which exists outside the Arrowverse framework, indulges in its super-power displays and, indeed, made the collection of metahumans a key part of its storyline. But Batwoman is a return to the pure action show roots of Arrow. Like that series early days, Kate, her associates, and her enemies will lack for big, bright powers.Granted, that’s baked right into the premise — members of the Batman family are generally conventional humans trained for peak performance — but it means the show will have a different feel than what you might expect. This is doubly true as Arrow finds itself dealing with alternate realities and a multiverse entity as part of its eighth and final season. Week-to-week, this means you should expect a lot more close-quarters fighting and, perhaps, a reliance on gadgets. Hopefully, the latter will set the program apart from Arrow, which avoided trick arrows for a long time.The return to action also means the show will be less tied to the campier elements of the DC Universe. That’s probably a good decision as Batwoman is paired on Sundays nights with Supergirl, a show filled with powered aliens and a generous helping of goofy camp to offset its often-serious stories. And considering the rumblings that a “World’s Finest” team-up between the two heroes may eventually happen, contrasting their worlds can only be a net positive. A similar difference in tone helped set The Flash apart from Arrow.But considering Batwoman’s comic book past includes some wild monsters, aliens, and prophecies, we wouldn’t put it past the production team to introduce something decidedly fantastical into the mix after “Crisis on Infinite Earths” or in the first season finale.Until that occurs, though, expect Batwoman to be a show about fighting for one s identity. Whether or not that s a meta-commentary on the show itself (and its place in the Arrowverse) remains to be seen.Batwoman airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on The CW.Like this?
