A catalogue of crimes by Underwood over the first three seasons of HoC, the 1-minute spot is the second Season 4 tease in less than a month. On December 15 and with near perfect timing, Netflix put out a fake FU2016 ad during the fifth GOP debate.
Past Golden Globe winner Robin Wright was up for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series – Drama for Season 3 of HoC this evening. She lost out to Empire’s Taraji P. Henson. While not nominated for a Golden Globe this year, Spacey has just been named the chairman of the recently reorganized and soon hopefully out of Chap. 11 Relativity Media. As my colleague Mike Fleming Jr, exclusively revealed last week, the Ryan Kavanaugh company recently bought Spacey and Dana Brunetti’s Trigger Street Productions. While no Frank Underwood, Brunetti will become the president – of Relativity.
