Cool. I came back in time. I’d like your post, but I can’t for some reason.August 25, 2015 at 6:36 pm #359301
Can’t wait! I understand you guys have already recorded some slugfests. Will you guys post them on Friday when voting is over?August 25, 2015 at 7:20 pm #359303
Cool! I hope you all are on board the Robin Wright train…August 27, 2015 at 7:30 am #359304
Can’t wait! I understand you guys have already recorded some slugfests. Will you guys post them on Friday when voting is over?
I am not sure what the schedule is, but I would imagine that they would be rolling out on a daily basis or so. We have eight category slugfests in the can that I know about. I was there for the guest ones and missed the supporting ones.August 29, 2015 at 9:40 am #359305
Be sure to join us TODAY at 4:30p (PST) on the homepage.
If the back-and-forth emails this morning are any indication, we’re going to blow through the Comedy Lead Actress category and then see a battle royale: ROB v MARCUS in the Drama Lead Actress category. In fact, I think we all have a different frontrunner. Help us!August 29, 2015 at 1:17 pm #359306
Just over three hours to go …August 29, 2015 at 1:23 pm #359307
Will the editors be taking into account multiple factors when making the predictions? In the past it was easy because you would just focus on episode. But now with this large voting pool buzz, show popularity with the Academy, outside factors could all play a role.August 29, 2015 at 1:50 pm #359308
My lead actor rankings at least have about nothing to do with tape unfortunately.August 29, 2015 at 4:10 pm #359309
Chat box is now open on the home page …August 30, 2015 at 10:31 am #359310
Sigh, I just don’t get the Uzo Aduba love from the editors. You guys drooled over her tape probably more than any others. She wasn’t even the best supporting actress from that show this season. Makes me sick she will be a 2 time Emmy winner when Hendricks will leave 0 for 6. Life ain’t fair.August 30, 2015 at 11:17 am #359311
I missed it. Were can I find it?
