Daytime Emmy-nominee Alicia Minshew discusses the end of “All My Children‘s” ABC run and what will happen when it moves online: “They basically want to pick up where we left off… If they’re completely capable of doing that, I don’t know. I mean, they seem like really smart guys, because we’ve met them. But, they’ve told us they’re hoping to be on the air by January. They hope to be starting to tape by late November, and they will contact people on an individual basis and let them know what they wanted from them. And that is kind of where they sort of left us. So, again, this is what we’ve been told and it is kind of up in the air at this point.” HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Paddy Considine‘s feature directing debut, “Tyrannosaur,” gets a positive reception in Toronto: “‘Tyrannosaur’ is an arduous film, but it is an honest and intuitive probing of a heavy subject. Considine, [Peter Mullan], and [Olivia Colman] also do it justly through their unflinching portrayal. ‘Tyrannosaur’ was met with an enthusiastic standing ovation at last night’s screening: the standing-O one of the few I’ve seen at the festival this year and it’s well deserved.” AWARDS DAILY
