‘Detective’ traffic clogs streams


HBO says its streaming service is running again, although disappointingly late for many anxious fans of the “True Detective” series.

Most fans who tried to log onto the “HBO GO” stream for the Sunday-night season finale of “True Detective” weren’t able to do so because the service crashed. HBO said Monday the service interruption was due to “an excessive amount of traffic” soon after the 9 p.m. Eastern start of the episode. Many viewers saw a spinning circle indicating the show was loading, but it didn’t.

‘Detective’ stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

Stage nominations

Screen stars Jude Law, Tom Hiddleston and Judi Dench have seen their stage work rewarded with nominations at Britain’s Laurence Olivier theater awards.

Law is a best-actor contender for “Henry V” and Hiddleston for another Shakespeare play, “Coriolanus.” Dench is a best-actress nominee for her performance as the real-life inspiration for “Alice in Wonderland” in “Peter and Alice.”

The Olivier awards are Britain’s equivalent of Broadway’s Tonys.

Winners will be announced April 13.
