Which potential Emmy winners might receive standing ovations this year?
If Jon Hamm (finally) wins for “Mad Men,” would the crowd jump up to their feet?
Would a legend like Billy Crystal (“The Comedians”) earn a standing O if he wins?June 23, 2015 at 2:35 am #351184
Hamm & Tambor probably.
If he wins, Letterman definitely will.
Spacey potentially, because it’s Kevin Spacey?
Maybe Henson/Davis because of the ‘achievement’ (I can’t think of the right word) with one of them winning.
Mad Men or Modern Family if they win Series and break the all time records?June 23, 2015 at 2:43 am #351185
I really think the four leading winners in comedy and drama could get a standing ovation. If the winners in those categories are Hamm, Tambor, Davis/Henson & Poehler then yes.June 23, 2015 at 3:52 am #351186
Drama Actor – Jon Hamm (overdue status) or Kevin Spacey (name)
Drama Actress – Viola Davis or Taraji P. Henson (milestone)
Comedy Actor – Billy Crystal (name/career) or Jeffrey Tambor (performance/career)
Comedy Actress – Jane Fonda or Lily Tomlin (legends), Amy Poehler (overdue/popularity factor)
Miniseries/Movie Actress – Frances McDormand (career/name), Jessica Lange (goodbye hug) or Queen Latifah (name)
Drama Supporting Actor – Jon Voight (name/career)
Drama Supporting Actress – Maggie Smith (if she shows )
Miniseries/Movie Supporting Actor – Bill Murray (name/career)
Miniseries/Movie Supporting Actress – Mo’Nique (name)
Some of these are probably way offs for the win but it’s who springs to mindJune 23, 2015 at 4:28 am #351187
Jon Hamm, Viola Davis and Frances McDormand.June 23, 2015 at 4:39 am #351188
Last year, only Larry Kramer (and The Normal Heart cast), Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Beaking Bad’s series win got standing ovations.
I think Viola Davis will get a standing ovation for Drama Lead Actress if she wins. She basically got it for the SAG Award win (even if it was for the subsequent speech).
David Letterman will most probably get one, whether he wins or presents an award.
I think Julian Fellowes could get one for the beloved Downton Abbey, if it wins Drama series.
I hope Monique gets one if she wins. Especially with Lee Daniels and the Empire cast in attendence. Boy how good that would feel.June 23, 2015 at 4:41 am #351189
Aren’t standing ovations much rarer at the Emmys than the Oscars ? WOuld be itnerested if people have examples of recent ones, because I can’t think of many.
If one of the African-Amerian actresses win Drama Lead Actress, I could see it happening. Don’t think Jon Hamm would get one though. Jeffrey Tambor is also a pretty good guess. I doubt Fonda/Tomlin or McDormand would get one.
Edit : Huh, I didn’t remember Cranston and Paul getting one. Maybe I’m underestimating Hamm then, but you know, he’d have to win first.June 23, 2015 at 8:37 am #351190
If Amy Poehler wins she will definitely get a well deserved standing ovation.June 23, 2015 at 8:37 am #351191
^^Cranston got a standing ovation from the entire room. Paul got from maybe a 3rd.June 23, 2015 at 11:05 am #351193
Hamm, Poehler, Davis, Tyson, Tambor, TransparentJune 23, 2015 at 11:12 am #351194
Jon Hamm, Viola Davis, David Letterman, Jeffrey Tambor, Jane FondaJune 23, 2015 at 11:19 am #351195
The Emmys aren’t very big on standing ovations, but the likes of Viola Davis / Taraji P. Henson, Jane Fonda, Jon Hamm, and David Letterman have a chance for one if they win.June 23, 2015 at 12:00 pm #351196
Can I list the winners I would give a standing O to in my own home if they won? Haha!
A Jon Hamm win and/or “Mad Men” winning Best Drama Series would almost certainly incite a standing ovation.
Amy Poehler getting a standing ovation would be so incredibly well-deserved, but I’m not sure it’s entirely possible.
Jeffrey Tambor, maybe. “Transparent” winning Best Comedy Series would likely get a standing ovation.
Is it bad that I don’t even have enough faith in the audience to predict Viola Davis or Taraji P. Henson getting standing ovations? Maybe Viola.
Depending on the Guest Emmy winners, they could get standing O’s when they’re introduced to present (specifically thinking of Cecily Tyson).
