He has at least two excellent tapes, I’m not aware of the recent tape changes but we learned over and over that tapes do matter in acting categories. Could he be the biggest theat to Jon Hamm or Chandler?
“Walk This Way” and the season finale “The Captain” are both excellent emotional submissions that screams emmy.
What you guys think?
I don’t think so. I love Ray Donavan but even I was thrown back at his nomination.
No, I don’t think so either. I’m expecting Liev Schreiber to submit “Walk This Way” as his tape. He directed this episode and has said that this episode is important to him. It will keep him in the mix of things if the tapes are actually watched. Otherwise, his reward is the nomination in a tight category field.
I think both tape are as strong as Jon Hamm’s “Person to Person”. Not sure about episode 12 for Chandler.
I need to rewatch “Walk this way” but right now I would rank him in third. Odenkirk is my personal winner and Chandler is #2, Hamm #4, Daniels #5 and Spacey #6. The thing is, I would probably vote for Hamm if I was an Emmy voter, obviously not because I think his episode is the strongest, but because it would be a shame if Don Draper ended his run without a single emmy.
I might be in minority here but I freaking love “Ray Donovan” and Liev’s performance. I’d give him an Emmy in a heartbeat. I hope he submits “Walk This Way”. It’s a fantastic tape for him.
I think he’s great on the show and is in my personal crop of like 15 guys but in a year where Hamm has a huge narritive of being Emmyless I don’t see it happening
So, Liev submited “Walk this Way”, consider him now definetely in the running.
Also , what you guys think will be his emmy clip?
The conversation with his daughter?? his face expression when she tells him Abby came home 2 a.m and him walking down the stairs holding the camera to his face is fantastic.
The Fight with Terry? (most likely) eventhough I think Marsan overshadowed him in that scene because he is that great.
The conversation with his son?? which is less likely.. at the end with the dancing(hillarious).
Maybe they will show him talking to that weird chest hairy guy and calling him an asshole, emmys like to do that I guess.
Or maybe we won’t even have clips.
Oh God, I hope we will have clips! I love them. I hate when they just read all of the nominees while the camera approaching their faces. NBC did the worst last year. But Fox always prepares some juicy clips for every category. I also want to see that Drama/Comedy/Mini/Variety segments as the show progresses.
