Last night TV's finest -- which these days tends to include some of movie's finest too -- gathered for the Emmy Awards, while the the rest of us stayed glued to "Breaking Bad" and to some extent, the series finale of "Dexter." Either way, both options were better than that dubstep dance routine to "Breaking Bad" on the awards show. And once the jokes were over, and tributes were finished, some statues were handed out honoring some fine folks.

After a particularly strong first season, "Homeland" took a little bit of a downswing in its second. The first few episodes were cracking, but they were so daring in the amount of plot it tore through that it didn't leave much for the back half of the season, which disconnected increasingly with reality.

It might seem like "Breaking Bad" is only thing coming up on TV worth caring about but for many the return of "Homeland" for its third season is yet another good reason to stay in this fall. The acclaimed show is riding high at the moment, with 8 Emmy nominations for its second season, following four wins for its first season including Best Drama, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Writing. Not too shabby, but can they keep it up?

As Cannes passes its halfway mark, already a number of deals and release dates have been set, with Asghar Farhadi’s “The Past” being just the latest. But away from the Croisette, a number of smaller pictures are nearing release, and a diverse slate at that: a UK cop thriller with a stellar ensemble, a coming of age drama starring Claire Danes, and a space horror with Sharlto Copley in the lead.

Here's how indie movies sneak up on you. This was announced way back in the spring of 2011, before "Homeland" became a big hit, and thus when we saw a new movie with Claire Danes, we sorta just shrugged our shoulders and moved on. But the actress is back in a big way thanks to the hit series (which just got renewed for a third season), and undoubtedly many more eyes will now be on her indie feature "As Cool As I Am," which Radiant Films has just picked up the sales rights for.

It’s one of the President of the United States’ favorite shows, it just swept the Primetime Emmys (the coveted Best Drama Award, plus Best Actor and Best Actress) and the second-season premiere boasted its highest ratings to date until last night's episode broke them (1.75 million). So yes, it’s safe to say Showtime’s “Homeland” is very much the darling of the cable network who has, in the eyes of some, struggled to compete with HBO at least in terms of similar acclaim, awards and must-watch shows.

Project Is Payoff To Franco's 'General Hospital' RoleJames Franco's had a pretty good 2010, but his 2011 is likely to be even better. The polymath will kick things off by not only co-hosting the Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway, but also with a near certain-nomination at the awards for his stunning performance in Danny Boyle's "127 Hours." April will then see him topline the fantasy comedy "Your Highness," and the summer will see him take on his first full-flung blockbuster lead in 20th Century Fox's "Rise of the Apes."
