In a world of drama and mystery (and sex!), Shonda Rhimes is releasing a series on HBO that is thematically very similar to the novel that inspired it. The first episodes explode like wildfire on screen, starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant as they clash in this fun-filled Upper East Side neighborhood with lots of sex and murder. “The Undoing” will remind you of those Sidney Sheldon-style thriller novels.

From time to time, a drama from that period proves to be even better than the original. American lawyer Perry Mason is recovering from the Great Depression (and a divorce) when he must solve a sensational murder. Matthew Rees’ extraordinary performance earns him the title of best actor in a television drama series.

The series was nominated in the “Best TV Series – Drama” category and has received numerous rave reviews since its premiere in 2020. Watch the trailer here:
I KNOW IT’S TRUE.

I Know This Much is True may sound like the lyrics to a song from the 90s (but it’s not!), starring Mark Ruffalo and Kathryn Hahn, this miniseries is written and directed by Derek Cianfrance, based on the 1998 novel of the same name by Wally Lamb. Mark Ruffalo plays two roles, that of identical twin brothers Dominic and Thomas Birdseye, which earned him a nomination in the “Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Film Made for Television” category.
The Golden Globe Awards ceremony will take place on February 28 (March 1, 10 am) at 9 pm.
