The odd thing about this issue is Baldwin seems to be rehabbing his own image by playing Trump and fighting with him on Twitter.
Baldwin has his own list of nasty statements remember.December 27, 2016 at 3:29 pm #1201975732
Walton Goggins would get my vote. I expect Louie Anderson to repeat.December 27, 2016 at 3:45 pm #1201975754
I wouldn’t be sulfide do it one if the Atlanta actor said wins the supporting Emmy.December 29, 2016 at 3:53 am #1201976850
No. The Real Trump is more funny.December 29, 2016 at 9:26 am #1201976954
Kate McKinnon’s opened the door, so sure, anything’s possible. I’d rather see Baldwin host and win guest actor (never even nodded there before) than winning supporting actor when what he’s doing isn’t really “supporting” at all by not being a regular or featured player and only appearing for an average of 5 minutes in his episodes. Supporting actor comedy is also far more competitive than guest actor comedy is, so that has to be factored in as well. It’s all so unprecedented.December 29, 2016 at 10:08 am #1201976968
I think he should win one but would it be supporting or guest? I know that there is a certain amount of episodes that would push him out of guest actor and into supporting but don’t know the exact amount….I’d imagine we are going to see a lot of him on SNL for the remainder of the season.December 29, 2016 at 11:13 am #1201977002
I think he is funny in the role, but him going supporting is ridiculous. He’s not a full time cast member, he’s not listed in the main credits. Hell, he maybe gets 10 minutes of screentime in a 90 minute show.
They need to bring back the individual achievement Variety award.December 29, 2016 at 11:39 am #1201977020
It’s mostly ridicolous because the regular SNL members are also being forced to compete in that category. Supporting categories at the Emmys have a long history of awarding recurring roles, Stockard Channing being the most obvious example. And even if his screentime is limited, if he appears in all 20 episodes this season, he’d have more screentime/impact on his show than most of the cable actors that are going to be nominated.
I also disagree to the idea of bringing back Variety Acting category. Would we really want Amy Schumer to win year after year? Or whoever ”hosts” the Oscars becoming frontrunner for an acting award?December 29, 2016 at 11:45 am #1201977021
They need to do something with variety performers, cause it is BS that they are putting the actors in the Comedy categories.
Btw, Amy isn’t an Emmy juggernaut, she won a single award and her show isn’t on the air at the moment.
And Individual Achievement wasn’t an acting award. It encompassed all variety Performers.
They could do performer in a variety sketch series.December 29, 2016 at 12:04 pm #1201977027
I’m all for the Emmys bringing back Individual Performance Variety, but there has to be some set guidelines there for it to work. Now with the division between Variery Talk and Sketch Series, everyone would be lumped together in one catch-all “program” category. They won’t divide it any, so we’d only get one. The late-night hosts, all of the variety performers (lead, supporting, and guest), the awards shows hosts, the comedians, theater performances, etc., and then all of them will lose to Barry Manilow again lol. The best way to go there is limit who competes in the catch-all category while leaving others where they are now and win only when the series wins something. I might do that for all one-time variety performers versus regulars, but I’d need to ponder that some more.December 29, 2016 at 12:15 pm #1201977032
They could open up the host category to include late night hosts and award show hosts.
Leaving individual achievement for performers.December 29, 2016 at 12:17 pm #1201977035
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a show that everyone would call a straight-up comedy without thinking, almost always feel like a combination of different sketches with a somewhat serialized storytelling, with absurd scenarios/effects and same actors playing different roles in different episodes and all. Making its overall tone way closer to Inside Amy Schumer than something like Master of None or Girls.
If something as quirky as The Grand Budapest Hotel can face up with The Imıitation Game at equal footing at the Oscars, than why do we want to categorize everything with a little of bit different approach at the Emmys? Once we start to do that there is no end.December 29, 2016 at 12:23 pm #1201977038
Because the Emmys arent the Oscars.
Kimmy Schmidt isn’t a variety sketch series lol.
