Another candidate will be released shortly.
Well, that sucks. Imagine being an actor up for an award at the biggest television event of the year, only to be told that you're ineligible for candidacy because you work too much. That's what happened to 'Veep' star Peter MacNicol who has had his nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series revoked this week.
It's no doubt a disappointment for the actor, but maybe he'll be recognised for his larger role at next year's Emmys. On the grounds of a technicality that labels guest actors as only those who have appeared in less than 50% of a series, Peter MacNicol has been disqualified from the awards show.

Quincy (Jamie Foxx) is a man with everything -- a good job as a magazine editor, good friends, and a fine woman to whom he's on the verge of proposing. Just as he's about to write a series of guidelines for firing employees, his girlfriend dumps him at their engagement party. Despondent, he quits his job, refusing to fire employees for his spineless boss (Peter MacNicol), and becomes a recluse.

The story involves a fantasy kingdom which sacrifices a young woman every year to the mean old dragon on the hill, lest it burn up all the crops, and so on. Peter MacNicol plays a young magician who is bent on destroying the dragon, even though he's a bit of a schlub... you know, like Peter MacNicol. Caitlin Clarke plays a young boy who turns out to be a young woman in disguise, designed to evade the lottery used to pick the woman for sacrifice.

Brooks basically takes Bram Stoker's Dracula (Francis Ford Coppola's film) and gives it the once-over, recreating the plot and characters almost directly from that movie, and giving them supposedly funny lines. The problem is that Bram Stoker's Dracula was pretty silly to begin with, and Brooks' version comes off as poking fun at a film that was already doing a good job of it all by itself.

See, Olive's not really a reindeer - she's a dog. A strange dog. Voiced by Drew Barrymore, she speaks English to her owner Tim (Jay Mohr), doesn't dig for bones, and won't chase cars. While listening to the radio on Christmas Eve, she hears that Santa may cancel his delivery, as Blitzen is injured. He announces (in a 90s soundbite), that he'll just have to rely on "all of the other reindeer."

The story's the thing that kills GB2 right from the get-go, which picks up five years after the original: Our boys in brown saved the city, but now they're reduced to hosting cheesy psychic TV shows and begging for work, as most of the spirit disturbances have been cleaned up. Even Venkman (Bill Murray) didn't end up with Dana (Sigourney Weaver), who's now divorced and has (gasp) a baby, one which will figure centrally in the plot machinations later on, involving (double gasp) Peter MacNicol as a vaguely Eastern European art expert. Good lord.

"Baby Geniuses" doesn't waste any time gettingstupid. The first scene is a bunch of bozo Orwellian security guards beingkarate-chopped to a pulp by a brainiac toddler who is trying to escapethe lab of an evil scientist.
The evil scientist is Christopher Lloyd, forever lit frombelow to make his worn-out elastic face look sinister. His evil boss isan Ivana-ized Kathleen Turner, in what has to be the most embarrassingrole of her tail-spinning career, as the scenery-chewing CEO of Baby Co.,a kiddie product conglomerate that is secretly experimenting on babiesto discover if they know the secrets of the universe.
