She Is ‘Maisel’, Hear Her Roar: Amazon Series Creators & Stars On #MeToo Timing & Blazing A New Trail
Two-thirds of the way into the pilot of Amazon Studios’ The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, there’s a moment that underscores just how unflappable Rachel Brosnahan’s uptown Jewish housewife heroine, Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel, truly is.

Her business suit-wearing wannabe stand-up hack of a husband, Joel (Michael Zegen), drops the news on the eve of what will be a very busy Yom Kippur that he’s leaving Midge for his secretary Penny—and with his wife’s suitcase no less.

“You’re leaving me for a girl who can’t figure out how to sharpen pencils?” stings Midge.

“I need to start over,” Joel groans.

“With her? She wins?” Midge asks—without tears—before slamming Joel. “Can I just say you have the worst timing ever?”

Then comes her punchline: “Grab some pens on the way out, you’re going to need them.

Emmy Predictions: Elisabeth Moss Likely To Repeat As Drama Series Actress But Claire Foy And Keri Russell Circling For The Win

Emmy Predictions: Elisabeth Moss Likely To Repeat As Drama Series Actress But Claire Foy And Keri Russell Circling For The Win
Two past winners in the category, versus four past Emmy nominees trying to break into that exclusive club—including the first ever Asian contender here—make up the extremely competitive lineup for Drama Series Lead Actress this year. I could easily have seen slots go to Ozark’s Laura Linney or Maggie Gyllenhaal of The Deuce, or This Is Us star Mandy Moore after her exemplary season, but the field turned out to be simply too crowded. So can it be Keri Russell on her last season for The Americans, or Sandra Oh on her first for Killing Eve as upsets? Or will we crown Claire Foy’s exit as the Queen? Here’s the analysis…

Emmys: Donald Glover and Rachel Brosnahan Appear to Be Comedy Locks, But Spoilers Lurk — Screen Talk Emmy Edition
It’s Donald Glover’s world right now. The dynamo seems to be able to do it all: “Atlanta” is a triumph, his music career as Childish Gambino is burning up the charts, and he was even considered one of the best things about “Solo.” He won the Emmy last year for Outstanding Lead Comedy Actor, and appears to be the shoo-in this year as well. Standing in his way for a repeat win: Bill Hader, whose “Barry” was similarly deemed a critical success; Anthony Anderson, whose recent police investigation will likely hurt his chances; and TV royalty Ted Danson, Larry David, and William H. Macy.

Tj Miller Denies Former ‘Silicon Valley’ Co-Star Alice Wetterlund’s Bullying Claims
Former “Silicon Valley” star Tj Miller is defending himself against claims from his co-star Alice Wetterlund that she was subjected to bullying on the set by him and the rest of the mostly male cast.

‘The Sinner’ Boss Explains What the Hell Carrie Coon Is Doing With That Giant Rock
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Sinner” Season 2, Episode 3, “Part III.”]

The Sinner” has been known to feature any number of disturbing scenes, but Wednesday’s episode also included a sequence that was more baffling than anything else.

In the scene, Emmy nominee Carrie Coon cycles through a series of emotions with only a giant rock as her scene partner. As Vera Walker, a concerned mother whose son has been accused of murder, she turns to a means of solace that others in her commune, Mosswood Grove, use. She appears to be doing what looks to be yoga at first, alternating cat-cow pose with breath work, but then she also begins to cry and wail. When she’s done, she walks over to the towering rock and then puts her hands on it.

IndieWire turned to showrunner Derek Simonds for answers to this mysterious behavior.

“It’s some kind of exercise,” he confirmed. “We don
