    Is Aduba a lock to win the Emmy now after the SAG win?

    There seems to be a lot of industry support for her, and it is very hard to win the SAG when you are a supporting performer. Many of the few supporting winners have had wayyy much more screentime than Aduba does (Mullaly, Burrell, Hayes). The SAG awards are usually a great predictor for the Emmys, so do you think she is a lock to win or will Emmy favorite Alison Janney repeat?

    I hope not – I loved her in Season 1, and her win was justified – but in Season 2, other than the finale, she really didn’t do anything notable. People like Kate Mulgrew, Barbara Rosenblat and Danielle Brooks did much better work this season.

    A lock? No. Unlike the Oscars locks are hard to come by at the Emmys (especially this early).

     

    Allison Janney can win her 7th Emmy with last week’s Mom episode.

    Oh, no. Definitely not. It’s been so long since I’ve seen Season 2, but did she really have an unbeatable tape? I don’t *think* so, so if she were to repeat, I think she’d need a weaker field.

    This exactly. Allison Janney is going to be hard to beat if she submits last weeks episode or has one coming up that’s better (which would be make her a then cemented lock). Uzo is going with the finale and she’s great in it but I’m not sure she can beat Janney with it. Lock for a nomination tho for sure!

    Depends on what other Orange ladies (who are nominated) submit. I could see if Mulgrew nominated she somehow submits the finale with Aduba submitted Hugs Can Be Deceiving. Who knows but she seems really strong for a nomination and possibly with Janney and Mulgrew the only locks.

    Aduba will get the nomination, no matter what (could easily push out Kate Mulgrew). But I don’t see anyone stopping Allison Janney from her 7th Emmy after last week’s episode of Mom. She likely has it on more of a lockdown now than she did with the first season. Aduba has plenty of buzz, but she doesn’t have the [comedic] submission.

    Actually I watched oitnb season 2 before she got all of her buzz. And I thought her Emmy nomination chances are very low this year. She had had a better storylines last year and I had hoped she would stay in the guest category. Because of her characters personality she had been a sidekick and she always will be.
    And I’m pretty surprised seeing her got nominated both GG and SAG(I mean, Aduba over Schilling? That’s ridicolus) But I’m glad for her anyway.
    And I’m literally shocked when she won. Aduba over DREYFUS? That’s insane.
    She’s a great actor for sure but I think her African-American status and her unrecognizable name (being unrecognizable means you have’nt had enemies yet) helped her through the way, and of course the popularity of oitnb.
    That’s how Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson have prevailed in the recent years.

    And remember the Uzo’s character is much more unlikable this season if that’d change anything at the Emmys.

    Yeah.  Fellow actors didn’t think their performances were worthy of recognition, but felt compelled to reward them nonetheless because they were performers or color and because their names were unrecognizable.  *rolls eyes*  That is a bunch of microaggressive bullcrap.  Scratch that; it’s not even a microaggression, it’s just racist and stupid. 

    And for the record, neither Chandra Wilson nor Sandra Oh was a newcomer when they won, or when Grey’s Anatomy started for that matter.  Wilson had been rooting around doing enough televison and film appearances since the 90’s to be known by many within the industry by the time of her win for Grey’s.  And while Arliss may have been critically reviled, Sandra Oh was on it for seven whole seasons, as well as doing many other projects long before her wins.  My point: just because YOU don’t know someone’s name doesn’t mean that people within the industry don’t.

    Frontunner, yes. 
    Lock to win, no.

    I think it will be between Aduba and Janney for the win at the Emmys, but then again they could go for a more surprising win again along the lines of Weaver.  

    Maggie Smith won Drama Actress last year at SAG, but did not win at the Emmys. Other than that though, the winners at SAG won at the Emmys, in the Drama & Comedy Series categories. But then again, the year before that there was a much greater discrepancy between the two awards bodies.

    LOL relax, that’s not the way I see the world, this is ‘I’ imagine they’ve been thinking when they looking at the ballots considering the past years. Not just for the gender status, but all of underdogs for that matter, especially in the female categories. And I’m not saying they just throw an award for that, it’s just one factor.
    That’s my opinion of course, you can disagree but neither of us could’nt know what’s been happening behind the closeted doors for sure.
    And I’m an arabian myself by the way.

    When I said not recognizable I meant not as recognizable as Edie Falco or Amy Poehler or Louis-Dreyfus. And do you really think it’s the worthy performances would win at Sag? Alec Baldwin for 7 straight years?

    Anyway I dont have time for some passive-agressive supermen craps. Have a nice day to you

    No. Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson never won supporting Emmys for their work on Grey’s Anatomy even though both were winners on SAG. So it doesn’t really work like that.

    I’m quite calm, I’m quite aware of the politics involved in awards season, and I’m not concerned with whether you’re an “arabian” (interesting word choice).  I just… have motion sickness from the circuitous route you’re taking to justify your points, which don’t make sense to begin with.  Out of one side of your mouth, you say that SAG likes to reward people whose names are not recognizable, but then you go on to cite Julia Louis-Dreyfus (who indisputably had a very well-recognized name by the time she started winning awards for Seinfeld), Edie Falco (who was about as well known as Sandra Oh when she first started winning awards for The Sopranos), and Alec Baldwin (how does your “lack of name recognition helps” theory work here?)

    You’re all over the place.

    Man, as I said it’s much more common in female categories.

    If there’s an Oscar-nominee-winner actor in tv categories they likely to be the winner. If not they vote actors who plays acclaimed characters on acclaimed shows. Baldwin had both.
    Since there are not as quite as woman movie star on tv they tend to be the reward to the latter one.

    Of course there are more than 100.000 people we’re talkin’ about. Anything can happen. I just try to more generalize about that since this is an award site.

    No. You always have to wait for the episode submissions before calling someone a done deal.
