    Hannibal is premiering in about a week, and we have already seen some very impressive trailers.  

    What do you thing is this shows Awards Potential?

    Do you think any Emmy nominations are possible? And do you think Mads Mikkelsen can get a nomination for playing Hannibal?

    I’ll be watching because of Hugh Dancy, it would be a dream seen him nominated along with Danes.

    ^I’m pretty sure NBC would be happy with anything above a 2.0 in the demo, but I could see it bombing like ‘Do No Harm’.

    He was award worthy last year on The Big C (of the win infact) but was snubbed. I will watch like I watch Bates Motel to see how it goes but I am excited to see Mads playing Hannibal.

    Mads is a wicked actor. I can’t wait to see what he does with the character.

    While I’m looking forward to seeing it and think that the previews look pretty good, I am still very skeptical, as there hasn’t been a decent Hannibal Lecter release in the last 21 years.  Manhunter (1986) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991), in my opinion, are the only great films in the franchise, and what makes me even more leery is that the new TV series is that Martha De Laurentiis is behind scenes, whose previous work with the Lecter series was as a producer for Hannibal (2001, 39% on Rotten Tomatoes, 57 on Metacritic), Red Dragon (2003, 63% on Rotten Tomatoes, 60 on Metacritic) and Hannibal Rising (2007, 15% on Rotten Tomatoes, 35 on Metacritic), all of which I found to be quite disappointing. De Laurentiis had no involvement in either the critically-acclaimed Manhunter (94% on Rotten Tomatoes, 78 on Metacritic) or the Oscar-winning The Silence of the Lambs (95% on Rotten Tomatoes, 84 on Metacritic).

    Red Dragon was basically a more violent, leave-less-to-your-imagination re-make of Manhunter, with the only justifiable reason of being made in the first place was that Anthony Hopkins wasn’t in the original, and this time, surrounded by a slew of talented, well-known actors like Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Harvey Keitel, Emily Watson, and Mary-Louise Parker. But even this immenesly talented cast with Hopkins now rightfully playing his Oscar-winning role as Lecter, couldn’t save this film from ultimately being more disturbing than anything, compared to Manhunter, which was a great film.  De Laurentiis’ ability to turn a great story into a foul taste in my mouth leaves my trust in her production skills very shaky, and Red Dragon was the best Lecter film she was behind. Don’t even get me started on the other two.

    Hopefully Bryan Fuller will have more creative say for the new TV series (for which De Laurentiis is only listed as executive producer), and we’ll see a product where the storytelling leans closer to that of the early “thinking” movies, and less towards the newer gorefests.

    Daniel is right about most depictions of Hannibal post-Silence of the Lambs being disappointing. But I think what will save this one is the charm of Hugh Dancy and the sheer acting ability of Mads. He can do amazing things with this character hopefully without imitating Hopkins.

    Where will Mikkelsen compete at the Emmys? The series is named after him, but I could see him competing in supporting if Drama Actor in a bit crowded.

    ^ He’s first billed, plays the title character and is acclaimed actor. There’s no way he’ll be competing in supporting category.

    Mads Mikkelsen may have an amount of screentime that justifies going supporting, but probably ends up as a lead actor, especially if his performance is well-received, a la Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs.

    It will be ironic if he’s nominated in Supporting, because Anthony Hopkins was nominated (and won) in Lead when he was more suited for Supporting, and Mads Mikkelsen, who will probably be a a major lead, will end up in Supporting.

    But it will be such a breath of fresh air to see one of the “usual” Drama Actor nominees get snubbed (Cranston, Hamm, Lewis, Buscemi and Hall) in favor of Mikkelsen. Surely he will be more deserving of an Emmy than Cranston winning his fourth? The only person I believe is overdue is Jon Hamm, but he’s the Steve Carrell of Drama Actor – a staple to be nominated, but never win. And when they are ready to award him, it is too late.

    I feel this year will be his year because Mad Men is said to be very Don centric. Cranston does not have the tape and I cannot see Lewis winning a second unless Homeland is the news beloved show of the Emmy’s. Spacey may be an oscar winner but I do not think he will win.
