American comedy drama Nurse Jackie is to return for one final season.
Sad news for fans of the American dark comedy 'Nurse Jackie': the satirical hospital drama will be ending with its next season. Starring Sopranos alumni Edie Falco, the drama has been on the air since 2009 and follows the life of Nurse Jackie Peyton, an emergency department nurse at All Saints' Hospital in New York City who also has a mild addiction to prescription drugs.
Edie Falco has played Nurse Jackie since 2009
Since it began on television channel Showtime, 'Nurse Jackie' has received widespread praise from critics and maintained a strong viewership in the US. It initially aired on BBC Two in the UK, but moved to Sky Atlantic in 2011. The show has received multiple awards over the years, including an Emmy for Edie Falco in 2010 and nominations even as recently as this year, and will be bowing out whilst still proving a strong contender in the ratings.

Newcomers like 'House of Cards' and 'Master of Sex' replace the old guards like 'Mad Men' and 'Homefront' in the TV noms
The nominations for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards were revealed this week and although there were few surprises in the movie nominations; in the television categories however, it's time for change in the established order of critically-acclaimed TV. Former nomination regulars like Mad Men and Homefront are nowhere to be seen in the nominees lists, replaced instead by the new order of critically-acclaimed shows.
Master of Sex, along with House of Cards, is now the show to beat
Master of Sex and House of Cards now look like the shows to beat, with Breaking Bad making what will be its final appearance at the Golden Globes with the series ending this year. This comes just a year after Homeland achieved the impressive feat of winning Best Drama Series, Best Male Actor and Best Female Actor all in one night, although this does mark the second year in a row that the 2007-2009 winner Mad Men has not appeared in the Best Drama category.
The actress remembered her on-screen husband from 'The Sopranos' in a heartfelt tribute to the late actor
James Gandolfini was remembered by his The Sopranos co-star Edie Falco in an emotional tribute to the late actor during Sunday (22 Sept.) night's 65th Annual Emmy Awards. In a ceremony that featured a number of memorials to fallen stars, Falco's appraisal of her on-screen husband was by far one of the most poignant of the night as she led the ceremony into a hushed remembrance of the acting great.

Falco, who played the long-suffering Carmela Soprano in the ever-popular series, fought back the tears as she remembered the late actor, who passed away in June aged 51. She remembered Gandolfini as a man of "tremendous warmth and heart" and who was "uniquely generous," being nothing like the character he will be best remembered for.

Having served as part of a hosting team in 2009, NPH is back hosting the Emmy's all by himself this time
Neil Patrick Harris will look to further his claim as a natural awards show host when he takes to the stage at the 65th Annual Emmy Awards this Sunday, 22 September. Having built up an impressive resume already as co-host of the awards in 2009 and as a four-time host of the Tony Awards, the How I Met Your Mother star needed no incentive to take on the challenge of hosting the Emmy's this year.
Harris is relishing the chance to host the Emmy's again
"I love TV and the motley crew of people that are part of it," Harris told reporters on Wednesday as the red carpet was laid out in front of Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre ahead of Sunday's ceremony. As the host of the celebration of television, you can bet that NPH had praise for the current crop of shows looking to be honoured at the awards show. He continued, in reference to the wide-ranging scope of shows up for awards, "I think that makes for a better viewing experience of television than ever, and I'm happy to be the guy in charge of honoring that."(via USA Today)
The late actor has been remembered by fans, co-workers and family following his untimely death earlier this week
Gandolfini reactions flood the web. The death of James Gandolfini - the man who reinvented the gangster image on television with his portrayal as Tony Soprano in The Sopranos - cause shockwaves to ripple across the entertainment industry and even further afield, as social networking sites and blogs became over-run with tributes for the late actor.
Gandolfini will no doubt go down in history as one of television's finest actors, and will probably be remembered as one of the finest character actors to grace any screen, and the sheer rate of well-wishes sent on his behalf goes some way to cementing his legacy - which isn't bad for someone who only got into acting to keep a friend company and to pass the time.
The man who recognised Jim's talent and gave him his biggest break of all, Sopranos creator David Chase, left a particularly heartfelt message when the news of his passing broke, and he spoke lovingly of his "brother" in the moments after his passing.
The Sopranos actor died of a heart attack
The news that Sopranos star James Gandolfini had died of a heart attack aged 51 seemed to transcend the usual reaction to a celebrity death. There were no quick jokes, just heartfelt tributes, none more so than from those who knew the Jersey-born actor.
Edie Falco, who shared one of the most famous, devastating and believable on-screen partnerships in TV history, issued a statement. “The love between Tony and Carmela was one of the greatest I’ve ever known,” she said. “My heart goes out to his family, as those of us in his pretend one hold on to the memories of our intense and beautiful time together.” Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who played Tony’s daughter Meadow sent her best wished. “This news has left me heartbroken,” she said. “I spent 10 years of my life studying and admiring one of the most brilliant actors, yes, but importantly one of the greatest men. I treasure my memories with him and feel so honored that I was an up-close witness to his greatness.”
Gandolfini died in Italy, while on holiday with his family and family friend Carole Marini. “There was no sign of trouble,” said Marini, wife of “Dancing with the Stars” veteran Gilles Marini. “For us, it was a shock.” His heart attack was followed by a desperate 40-minute survival effot, alas, to no avail. “The patient was considered dead on arrival,” said Dr. Claudio Modini, the emergency room chief. Sky Atlantic will be showing four classic Sopranos episodes tomorrow (Friday, June 21) in honour of the great actor.
