Anyone else watched the pilot? I didn’t expect to like it but it was so good. The costumes, the music… great. Oh, and AnnaSophia Robb is a revelation here! Fantastic performance. If it wasn’t on CW I could see her getting GG nod or even an Emmy one. Yup, she was that good. Supporting cast needs some work but I believe they’re gonn be just fine.
I don’t recall any recent CW nominees, or any CW nominees for that matter from the Globes, but once upon a time the biggest critical stars of the WB did get nods: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Lauren Graham. Even Jessica Alba managed to get a nod for Dark Angel.
So if it’s good and if it’s a girlie phenomenon, the Globes might eat it up without caring if it’s “from the CW”.
I watched the pilot last night, and I was surpised that I liked it also. For the first half or so I was distracting myself with trying to map this Carrie onto Sex and the City Carrie, but I enjoyed the show so much more once I decided to just disassociate the two in my mind. I’ll definitely keep watching to see where it goes.
