I was looking for this thread to post about LEMONS and I couldn’t find it so I made this. Black-ish has been doing great at the guilds. It is almost a lock at the Emmy’s and I could see it winning at this point. The season started off bad with a commercial for Disney World in VIP, but it has gotten much betterJanuary 12, 2017 at 3:54 pm #1201986646
I want to applaud the writers for making another politically relevant and hillarious season. 3 episodes have stood out to me so far.
The first was Auntsgiving. That episode was so funny and if Jenneifer Lewis gets the nomination she deserves, she found her episode. Lorraine Toussaint was also great and I hope she gets nominated.
The second episode that stood out to me was Being Bo-racial. It will totally be Ross’s submission. If episodesattered she could win. The writing was superb and I hope it gets a writing nomination. Beau Bridges could also get nominated
The third standout episode was LEMONS. Possibly the best comedy episode of the year. GIVE ANTHONY ANDERSON THE EMMY. He was amazing. This episode is this years Hope. What a great episode. This episode deserves directing nomination. Such a powerful and great episode.
This season is my favorite season despite the weak start. I hope it gets wins this year. In a perfect world, we would see nominations for Series, Anderson, Ross, Lewis, Fishburne, Bridges, Toussaint, writing(being Bo-racial), and directing (LEMONS).January 12, 2017 at 3:55 pm #1201986647
I was thinking the exact same thing, especially in light of last night’s episode. Anthony Anderson needs to make it his Emmy submission; that’s a winning tape for certain.
I know there’s a lot of hype around Atlanta, but at this point I can see Black-ish taking Best Comedy before that. If there’s a show that’s gonna stop the Veep streak, it’s definitely this one.January 12, 2017 at 4:37 pm #1201986692
Can’t wait to watch it tonight. I really wanted him to win last year and I hope he can pull it off this year, along with Tracee.January 12, 2017 at 11:21 pm #1201986948
Last night’s episode was utterly brilliant and Anderson gave an incredible performance. I would love to see the show, Anderson and Ross all win this year too. If last night’s episode is not nominated for writing, there is something wrong in this world…. And Ross was amazing in “Being Boracial”. I really hope she can stop Julia Louis Dreyfuss (who I still love) from winning again.January 13, 2017 at 6:31 am #1201987043
I enjoy black-ish in my mix of ABC comedies and it does produce good episodes every week but they took it to another level this week! Wanda Sykes doesn’t get enough praise for her guest role. Definitely their writing submission this yearJanuary 13, 2017 at 10:54 am #1201987204
This episode had me so shook. Prolly the best 30 mins of TV this season, IMO.January 13, 2017 at 12:29 pm #1201987265
What a powerful, poignant episode. Black-ish is a lock for that comedy series nod, as are Tracee Eliss Ross and Anthony Anderson. In fact, I won’t be surprised to see Ross or Anderson win at the Emmys (Especially Ross after her GG win). I’d even consider Anderson to be a major threat to Tambor for SAG.January 14, 2017 at 1:26 pm #1201987735
One of their best episodes to date!January 14, 2017 at 1:41 pm #1201987738
I never watch this show, but I left it on after Modern Family and it was so good! I was really blown away by it. I hope this finally picks up some wins at the Emmys-they would be very well-deserved.January 14, 2017 at 4:47 pm #1201987938
I think this is going to be the year it wins some big emmys.January 15, 2017 at 10:52 am #1201988284
I have not seen the last six episodes; I did see the first six of the season and posted my thoughts on the first four in the old thread. What I saw was really disappointing for an Outstanding Comedy Series nominee.
In terms of the Emmys, I think that it will just get its nominations last year and add sound mixing. Supporting and casting are the other ones that it could add. We have seven shows fighting for five slots (Atlanta, black-ish, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Silicon Valley, Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Veep) and they are all pretty much even if you ask me. You mention cinematography, but single-camera comedies like black-ish do not have their own category and it is never getting nominated over the likes of Westworld. Veep and Silicon Valley are just too strong across the board for black-ish to have much hope anywhere else, as they each take multiple slots. Beyond them, we have Atlanta coming into the non-acting categories above the line and A Series of Unfortunate Events coming in for the crafts.January 15, 2017 at 2:39 pm #1201988491
Honestly, I see it getting in for Series, actor, actress and supporting actress for Jennifer Lewis. I am a little skeptical about writing and directing since they snubbed Hope last year for both. Fishburn is not getting in for this.January 15, 2017 at 2:44 pm #1201988492
Emmy support for network comedies has been waning each year.
