News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210 and The O.C.

Random Question

31 08 2010

Sunday night I had one eye on the TV for the Primetime Emmys and one eye on TweetDeck, where I saw a number of tweets asking why Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill weren’t being recognized at the awards show.

Historically, the teen drama genre has gone unrecognized at the Emmys, except for in 1995 when Milton Berle was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his appearance as Saul on Beverly Hills 90210.

The closest the genre has come to similar-sized recognition was Beverly Hills 90210’s and Jason Priestley’s multiple Golden Globe nominations in the early and mid-90s.

There’s a lot of theories out there as to why the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences – the organization responsible for the Emmys – continually chooses not to recognize the genre, but I’d like to hear your thoughts.

Why do you think the teen dramas have received just one Emmy nomination over the last 20 years?

News Roundup: One Tree Hill, 90210, Gossip Girl and More

27 08 2010
  • The Real One Tree Hill Twitter account tweeted a very brief video with Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill).
  • Like Nichols did for his character, Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) has started a Twitter account for hers, under the name @BDavis_Baker.
  • TVGuide.com has a brief video interview with Joe Manganiello (Owen, One Tree Hill).
  • Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) tweeted she has a cameo in Scream 4, which also features Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.) and Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl), and an article in the new issue of Nylon, the one that features Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) on the cover.
  • ABC has ordered a pilot from Fake Empire, which is run by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.). The show, which Schwartz and Savage will produce, sounds awfully like the failed CW pilot Body Politic, which starred Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Gossip Cop busted a fabricated Perez Hilton story about Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.) supposedly dating Jake Gyllenhaal.
  • Jackson Rathbone (Justin, The O.C.) has been cast in No Ordinary Family, which stars Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.) and is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (writer-producer, Dawson’s Creek).
  • Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creek) won Best Supporting Actress In A Comedy in EW.com’s EWwy Awards.
  • The Star has an interview with Nina Repeta (Bessie, Dawson’s Creek).

  • The Real One Tree Hill Twitter account tweeted a very brief video with Lee Norris (Mouth, One Tree Hill).
  • Examiner.com has an interview with Amanda Schull (Sara/Katie, One Tree Hill). She made some interesting comments when discussing a possible return to OTH.
  • A pretty big picture of Joe Manganiello (Owen, One Tree Hill) is on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. That’s a huge achievement. Congrats to Joe!
  • Jana Kramer (Alex, One Tree Hill) has officially filed for divorce. She and Johnathon Schaech split a few weeks ago.
  • Takers, which briefly features Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210), stars Chris Brown (Will, The O.C.), and also happens to star Schaech and Rachel Bilson’s (Summer, The O.C.) ex Hayden Christensen, opens in theaters tomorrow.
  • 90210 and Dawson’s Creek are included in The Daily Beast’s look at “racy TV show scenes.” It’s sad, though, how respectable DC’s is and how much 90210’s isn’t. That can be applied to the series as a whole, too, in my opinion.
  • Kristin has an “exclusive sneak peek” at 90210’s new season. Looks like some new characters we haven’t heard about may be introduced.
  • Earlier this month CBS announced a new channel in India, which would air 90210, and now it’s been announced a new channel will also air the show in Australia.
  • Gossip Cop busted a false Star story about Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless were on the Late Show With David Letterman last night.
  • Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone is reportedly working with Fake Empire, which is run by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.), on a new fashion-based series.
  • OK! Magazine has a fall fashion feature with Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.).

  • Kevin Zegers (Damian, Gossip Girl) is reportedly being considered for Mission: Impossible 4.

  • Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) tweeted she will be on Martha Stewart’s show in September.
  • SheKnows has a video interview with Vanessa Marcil (Gina, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Marcil will be on the September 13 season premiere of The Doctors.
  • The Real One Tree Hill Twitter account tweeted a very brief video with Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley, One Tree Hill). Notice the box. Interpret as you wish.
  • Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) and Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill) have partnered with Veritas Fashion on a new t-shirt where some of the profits will go towards the Gulf Coast clean-up. Bush and Nichols seem to be announcing new Gulf Coast-related projects and contests multiple times a week, so make sure you keep checking their Twitter accounts.
  • Bush will be honored this weekend by Reality Cares, though she won’t be there in-person to accept the award.
  • Katie Holmes (Joey, Dawson’s Creek) may star in Jack And Jill, a film with Adam Sandler.
