Dexter’s last season was terrible with lack of ideas and nonsense twits. But Michael C. Hall is the puzzle that join all the series. Can he return for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series again?December 21, 2013 at 8:46 am #546433
Maybe.December 21, 2013 at 10:33 am #546434
No way. This final season was universally panned so hard, Hall would need several miracles to get back in. And even if he made it, his nomination would be considered the worst nomination of the year.December 21, 2013 at 12:53 pm #546435
Maybe you should change the options cause maybe not everyone feels the same way you do. AKA make them more objective perhaps?
I say it cause I (sadly) don´t think he can get a nomination next year, but I didn´t vote cause the option says he can´t get in because the last season was horrible.
First of all, and this is obviously my humble opinion, the last season was good. It was the finale that was beyond terrible, but the rest of the season, while a bit rushed in most parts, was pretty good (obviously one of the weakest still). But leaving the quality of the show aside, he won´t get a nod because when the emmys are done with a show, they are DONE with pretty much anything regarding the show. Everyone agrees that season 7 was, if not really good (its one of my personal favorites), then a HUGE improvemente on silly (but still fun) season 6, and the show had 1 nomination for 6 and cero for 7 (at least carpenter deserved one). He won´t get a nod because:
1. They have moved on completely from dexter. (Still pissed they ignored last season)
2. There is much hotter competition right now.December 21, 2013 at 2:12 pm #546436
No shot. Season 7 was the possibly one of the best seasons of the series, and Hall couldn’t get nominated for that even though he had been nominated the year before for the abysmal Season 6. If Season 8 had ended the series on a high note, than Hall might have had an outside shot. But since the season went downhill from the midpoint to the horrible finale (and airing opposite Breaking Bad’s final season made it look even worse), he’s out.December 22, 2013 at 5:41 am #546437
I’m not agree with you that the last season was good. The first 5 episodes were good, then Zach is killed, Vogel is killed, Cassie is killed, Deb is killed, Dexter rejected to kill Saxon the first time. Those points I didn’t like it so much and I think the writers didn’t know the objective of the series. Dexter Morgan, a serial killer who kill killers, a monster. The writers though that the objective was Dexter damage everyone he love so fake his death and become a lumberjack. I still don’t know why didn’t nominate Michael C. Hall for the seventh season even they nominated for the sixth season which was worse than that one. And Showtime fucked up the finale when they led Dexter live, who I think, and the most of fans think, he deserved to die. I voted maybe yes or not because I think that last season was horrible but he is a great actor, so let’s see in the 2014 Emmys.December 22, 2013 at 1:18 pm #546438
I agree the first half was much better than the second one, and because they rushed into things so much (one of those being the hannah storyline), the second half was really shaky (and did lose focus and the objetive sort of), but it was still a good enough season overall if we ignore the finale. I like to pretend that never happened cause it was so terrible from top to bottom, its not even about dexter (ridiculously) surviving the storm (fckin cherry on top of a horrible cake…the lumberjack thing? really?!), but they did literally eveything wrong in that episode (I´m looking at the morron that had the idea to kill deb…among other things).
But again, his chances of getting a nomination have nothing to do with him being a good actor or not. He is an amazing actor, who btw didn´t get the attention he deserved for his great (but inferior to dexter) performance in six feet under. I love the guy and I hate he is emmyless after his brilliant portrayal of dexter. He won´t get in cause they just don´t care about dexter anymore and because they rather reward newer/hotter shows, if they did then last season would have nominated last season somewhere. And trust me, I want him to get in more than anything (well, actually I would kill for a Jennifer Carpenter overdue nomination). Hope I get a big told you so from you next year, but I´m being realistic.December 22, 2013 at 4:11 pm #546439
-There are a couple factors to nominate an actor apart from being a good actor. Also Emmy voters are focused on the submission they select, and the season in general, with the best tapes overall. I’m not sure if they could nominate Michael C. Hall but if they do he must submit one of the first five episodes wich are the best of the season. I would choose ‘This Little Piggy’, but that’s a very hard prediction. In June that I think will be the Emmy nominations date, we’ll know it.December 23, 2013 at 1:09 pm #546440
No. He was already taken out, and the last season was absolutely horrible. It’s forgotten. Plus the competition is stiff. There are six slots.
1. Bryan Cranston
2. Kevin Spacey
3. Jeff Daniels
4. Michael Sheen
5. Jon Hamm
6. James Spader
and if you don’t agree with them as the most likely, then you have:
7. Hugh Bonneville
8. Damian Lewis
9. Demian Bichir
10. Steve Buscemi
11. Matthew Rhys
12. Timothy Olyphant
13. Aden Young
All in a far better position than Hall. Hell, even Kevin Bacon is likelier. It ain’t happenin. I hated the final season, and I love Hall, but I didn’t even think he was very good this year.
