EMM currently has a known bug where it won't scrape IMDB correctly. IMDB changed their structure and the scraper no longer works out-of-the-box.

To fix the issue, force EMM to scrape cast members; I have mine set to scrape the top 15 cast members. This can be done in the settings. Once you do this, EMM will (for some reason) now be able to grab your fanart, posters and synopses.

I also usually use manual scraping with EMM, since automatic scraping has been hit-or-miss.
