Dustin Hoffman & Judi Dench receive Int'l Emmy nominations

Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench received International Emmy nominations Monday for their roles in the BBC One TV movie "Roald Dahl's Esio Trot."

Brazil had a leading seven nominations, followed by Britain with six, including best actor and actress for Hoffman and Dench.

The two Oscar-winning acting veterans were honored for their roles in "Esio Trot," based on Dahl's children's novel about a lonely aging bachelor who tries to woo the widow in the flat below, who is overly fond of her pet tortoise.

Germany had five nominations, including best TV movie/miniseries and best actor (Florian Stetter) for "Nackt Unter Wolfen (Naked Among Wolves)," an adaptation of the novel by East German author Bruno Apitz about prisoners in the Buchenwald concentration camp who risk their lives to hide a Polish-Jewish boy.

Canada and South Korea each had three nominations, while Argentina, France and the Philippines had two apiece.

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said 40 nominees from 15 countries will be competing in 10 categories for the International Emmys, which honor excellence in TV programming outside the U.S. The awards will be presented Nov. 21 at a gala at the Hilton New York Hotel hosted by Alan Cumming.

Brazilian nominees include Alexandre Nero (best actor) for "A Regra do Jogo (Rules of the Game)" and Grazi Massafera (best actress) for "Verdades Secretas (Hidden Truths)," ''Zorra (The Mess)" in the comedy category and "Adotada" for non-scripted entertainment.

The other British nominees are "Hoff the Record" (comedy), "My Son the Jihadi" (documentary), "Gogglebox" (non-scripted entertainment), and "Capital" (TV movie/miniseries).

Taiwanese actor James Wen was the only other best-actor nominee for "Echoes of Time" (Singapore). Other best-actress nominees are Jodi Sta. Maria of the Philippines for "Pangako Sa'yo (The Promise)" and Germany's Christiane Paul for "Unterm Radar (Under the Radar)."

Also competing in the comedy category are France's "Dix Pour Cent (Call My Agent)" and South Africa's "Puppet Nation ZA."

Nominees for best drama series are Canada's "19-2," Argentina's "La Casa Del Mar," Germany's "Deutschland 83" and the United Arab Emirates' "Waiting for Jasmin."

Shonda Rhimes, writer, executive producer and creator of hit TV series such as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal," will be presented the honorary International Emmy Founders Award. Maria Rorbye Ronn, CEO and director general of the Danish Broadcasting Corp., will receive the honorary International Emmy Directorate Award.

Matt LeBlanc signs 2-series deal to host BBC's 'Top Gear'

The BBC says former "Friends" star Matt LeBlanc has signed a two-series deal to host its popular car show "Top Gear."

The broadcaster announced Monday that LeBlanc will front the program when it returns for a 24th series in 2017.

LeBlanc was one of two hosts when "Top Gear" was relaunched in May after the loss of its longstanding team of presenters. His co-host, Chris Evans, quit in July after the show drew lackluster ratings and lukewarm reviews.

A mix of humor, stunts and automotive advice, "Top Gear" became a global hit under presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

The trio left last year after an off-set dustup in which Clarkson punched a producer. They are hosting a new car show, "The Grand Tour," on Amazon Prime.

VIEWER'S GUIDE: Trust and temperament key themes in debate

The most telling moments in presidential debates often come out of the blue — an offhand remark or unrehearsed gesture that helps to reveal the essence of a candidate who's already been poked, prodded and inspected for years.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have competing missions heading into Monday night's leadoff debate of the general election campaign: Hers to overcome the trust questions that have bedeviled her for decades. His to convince voters that he has the good judgment and restraint required of a president.

Plenty of subtexts will play out as well over 90 minutes of must-see TV before an estimated audience of 75 million or more viewers — an outsized share of them disenchanted with both candidates.

Some things to watch for Monday night:

___

CLINTON vs. INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY

Just who will show up to debate Clinton? Will it be the say-anything Trump who roiled the primary debates by dishing out a stream of insults and provocations? Or the rein-it-in Trump who's been trying to demonstrate of late that he has the maturity and measured temperament to be president? One possible clue: Watch to see whether Trump trots out the "crooked Hillary" nickname or puts it on ice for 90 minutes.

___

TAKE A DEEP BREATH

Expect Clinton to try to goad Trump into losing control, perhaps by questioning the size of his wealth and the success of his businesses or by highlighting his past incendiary statements about minorities, women and others. Trump is promising to "stay cool." But 90 minutes could be a long time for the master of improv and theatrics to hew to a script.

___

POLICY PITFALLS

Both candidates have policy gaps to fill in and changes in position to explain. At its best, the debate could help flesh out details of both candidates' platforms, highlighting similarities and differences. There are pitfalls here for Trump in particular: Weak on policy, he's vulnerable to slip-ups that could feed into the not-ready-to-govern line that Clinton is pushing. Trump has been studying up: You can bet he now knows what the nuclear triad is. (During the primary debates, he seemed not to understand that it represents weapons in silos, submarines and bombers.)

___

THOSE 'DAMN EMAILS'

Clinton largely got a pass during the Democratic primary debates on her use of a private email system when she was secretary of state. Primary rival Bernie Sanders, in their first debate, did Clinton a favor when he declared that "people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails." Don't expect Trump to cut Clinton a similar break. She also has more to answer for since the FBI concluded that she was "extremely careless" in her handling of classified material in the emails. Clinton has been struggling to find an effective explanation: Now would be a good time for her to nail it.

___

PUSH-UPS ANYONE?

They can't exactly drop to the floor for a one-armed pushups contest. But look for both candidates to more subtly project health and stability. After her much-publicized coughing fits and recent bout of pneumonia, Clinton will be out to show she's got the strength and stamina the White House job demands. As for Trump, critics have speculated he has any number of psychiatric disorders. It would be a good time to show a level head and solid grounding.

___

POINTERS AND PINCERS

He shrugs. She bobs her head. He waves his arms. She pinches her thumb and index finger. Every wink, nod and fidget on Monday will be analyzed for silent messages that can speak volumes. President George H.W. Bush caught grief for stealing a look at his watch during a 1992 debate. Al Gore's audible sighs in a 2000 debate were seen as discourteous to George W. Bush.

___

FACTIVISM

The candidates won't be the only ones under the microscope. Moderator Lester Holt of NBC News will be under enormous pressure to maintain control and act as an objective referee. In the lead-up to the debate, Trump maintained that it would be improper for Holt to try to fact-check the candidates' statements in real time. Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted that if debate moderators don't fact-check the candidates, "it is an unfair advantage to Trump, who is a congenital liar."

___

GENDER DYNAMICS

Gender politics will be afoot in the first general-election debate to feature a woman. Trump had trouble navigating this terrain in the primaries, when he tried to back away from a derogatory comment about rival Carly Fiorina's looks by declaring in one debate that she had a "beautiful face." Clinton will be ready. She said earlier this year: "I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak."

___

WHAT TO WEAR

Call it frivolous, but people will check out what the candidates wear, especially Clinton. When comic Zach Galifianakis recently asked Clinton what she was going to wear, Clinton said she had no idea and scolded him for "this thing called the double standard." As for what Trump will wear, Clinton said: "I assume he'll wear that red power tie." Alluding to questions about whether Trump is a racist, Galifianakis replied: "Or maybe a white power tie."

___

POST-MORTEM

Even if you watch the whole debate, its impact may not be completely clear until the post-debate pontificating plays out. The analysis and selected clips that are highlighted after the debate can have a big influence on the millions of people who didn't tune in — or who watched Monday Night Football instead. And why wait for the debate to end? Your Twitter feed will be filled with significant moments before you've even had time to digest them.

Jane Pauley replacing Osgood at 'Sunday Morning'

Jane Pauley is becoming a morning television host again — this time at a much more relaxed pace. CBS said Sunday she will replace Charles Osgood as anchor of the "Sunday Morning" telecast.

The bow-tied Osgood told viewers at the end of his last telecast after 22 years that Pauley would replace him. She's been a contributor to the show since 2014.

Pauley will be only the third host of the program since its 1979 start with Charles Kuralt. "Sunday Morning" averages nearly six million viewers a week, the most popular morning news program on the weekend, heavy on features and a quiet, cultured vibe. Osgood leaves on a high note; ratings have increased for four straight years and this past season was his most-watched ever as host.

"Sunday Morning" devoted its program Sunday to a send-off for the 83-year-old Osgood, who will be an occasional contributor in the future and continue his radio work.

"It's a great honor to be given the chance to further our show's legacy on excellence," Pauley said. "I look forward to bringing loyal viewers the kind of engaging, original reporting that has made the broadcast so irresistible for so long."

Pauley, 65, was host of NBC's "Today" show for 13 years, ending in 1989. She spent a decade as an anchor at "Dateline NBC" and tried her own syndicated talk show in 2004.

She's written two books, and the second — about people over age 50 learning new careers and skills — drew at the attention of "Sunday Morning."

The show did a story about Pauley's book, and viewers responded so positively she was invited to become a contributor, said Rand Morrison, the show's executive producer.

Stories she's worked on for "Sunday Morning" include a profile of Hillary Clinton, a report on educators who lived through the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting and are trying to change gun laws, and an interview with David Letterman when he left late-night TV.

"A worthy successor and a perfect fit," Morrison said.

CBS honored Osgood with a tribute that delved into his signatures: a fashionable bow tie, his love of telling stories in verse and piano playing. He sat at the piano to sing a song of farewell.

"I can't think of anything that has given me more pleasure professionally than Sunday Morning," Osgood said during the show.

It featured cameos from Tom Brokaw, who tried futilely to tie his own bow tie; Ted Koppel, who noted that Osgood's real last name, Wood, was abandoned professionally because ABC had another newscaster named Charles Wood; and David Letterman, whose beard is approaching Santa Claus lengths.

Pauley begins as full-time host on Oct. 9, after the show takes a week off for a football game.

Man killed at home rented by former Canadian talk show host

Los Angeles police were searching Friday for the killer of a man in a Hollywood Hills home being rented by a former Canadian TV talk show host.

George Stroumboulopoulos, who has interviewed some of the biggest celebrities in the world, said it appeared the killing occurred during a break-in.

"The victim was a dear friend of mine, who was staying at my place while I was away," Stroumboulopoulos said in a prepared statement. "I am heartbroken."

The cause of death and the name of the victim were not immediately disclosed. Police did say the victim was in his 40s and suffered head trauma.

Officers were called to investigate a burglary shortly after 2 a.m. at the house not far from the Hollywood Bowl.

A man about 5-foot-8 with short black hair and a black jacket was seen fleeing the area, police said.

Stroumboulopoulos, 44, had a show on Canadian broadcaster CBC from 2005 to 2014. Before that he was a host on Canada's music channel, MuchMusic.

Daphne Oz's cookbook aims for weekend cooking on weekdays

Weekday cooking is fast, frazzled and too often defrosted. Weekend cooking, at its best, is relaxed, fresh and tempting.

Daphne Oz seeks to close the gap in her new book, "The Happy Cook," with 125 recipes that she says are practical enough for Monday through Friday while still tasty and adaptable enough to satisfy a variety of eaters and food concerns.

For TV's "The Chew" co-host, cooking at its best is an act of love and personal fulfillment, something she learned from her mother and grandmother.

She marvels at their "ability to be happy cooks, to have fun in the kitchen, to see it as release and freedom and as a place that was about them having confidence, and being a little bit wild and crazy," said Oz, daughter of doctor-TV personality Mehmet Oz ("The Dr. Oz Show").

Her cookbook has recipes including 10-minute breakfast tacos; balsamic onion and pear grilled cheese sandwiches; sweet corn ravioli; cider-braised brisket; honey-lime chicken wings and — wait for it — chocolate dulce de leche layer cake.

Most call for a reasonable number of ingredients. Others require a fair amount of food prep but also rely on bottled or home-made condiments kept on hand. The photos, whether of nicely plated dishes or idyllic shots of Oz at home with her family, are definitely aspirational.

In an interview, Oz discussed the logistics of making enticing, healthy food while juggling home and work demands, and why she believes counting calories isn't the way to go.

Associated Press: How can parents manage weekday cooking, which might include catering to child and adult tastes, without running screaming from the kitchen?

Oz: Don't make a different meal for every person, but make buildable meals. And, I do this with my kids, try to expand their palates gently. I'll make a basic lentil soup, which is still pretty advanced, with garlic and sweet potatoes and spices. And then make a spicy chili cumin oil for my husband and me to drizzle on top. It feels like an adult meal and a child's meal and doesn't cost me anything extra (in time).

AP: With fresh ingredients, especially veggies, there is potentially daunting chopping involved.

Oz: Having been to culinary school, the single greatest asset I learned there was how to cut and chop properly. It's an investment of money that will save you hours of time down the road, and hopefully some cut fingers. ... I would say even if you start small, start with one element of the meal that you make from scratch that night, and it will make a big difference nutritionally. Even more than that, I think it sets the tone for your family coming together and having a meal together.

AP: Are you concerned the cookbook might be pigeon-holed as suited to those with time and money to spare and easy access to fresh food?

Oz: I looked at all the things I was making on a regular basis and a lot of times I simplified. ... I tried to pay close attention to the reality that no one wants to go out and shop 20 ingredients for every meal they're gonna make. And let's not focus on specialty ingredients, but those homemade flavor-boosters you keep on hand that don't cost you much but that will really elevate your meals. I've tried to strive to make it not something just for the affluent, or people who have a grocery store around the block everywhere they go.

AP: The recipes don't include calorie counts or other nutritional information. Was that a deliberate choice?

Oz: It was. (As a college student trying to lose weight) I tried every diet under the sun and none of them worked but, more importantly, they were robbing me of my love of food. ... Once I got to a healthy place where I could know what would make me feel great and let me indulge when I needed to, I never wanted to go back to a place where I was exclusively thinking about a numbers game. ... My goal with these recipes is that you don't have to think about the numbers because the quality of it and the quantity I'm advising you to eat is something that can easily be part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Adult son of MSNBC's Joe Scarborough fractures skull in fall

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough says his son is doing "much better" after suffering a fractured skull Thursday.

Scarborough's "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski said on Friday's program that 25-year-old Andrew Scarborough was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in New York after falling down a flight of stairs. Brzezinski says the younger Scarborough's condition is "touch and go" but says he has been stabilized.

Joe Scarborough missed Friday's show, but said on Twitter that Thursday was "a frightening day and long night." The former congressman says Andrew was able to respond to a neurologist's questions. He said the doctor "ended by asking him his favorite team." Scarborough said Andrew replied, "The Red Sox, who've won 8 in a row."
