    Premieres on Saturday, May 20, 2017 @ 8 PM on HBO.

    The teaser trailer is out, and it’s great. Looks like it’s HBO’s major telefilm push this year, and needless to say, Robert DeNiro is staring at his first Emmy nomination here and possible win as Bernie Madoff. Also look out for Michelle Pfeiffer as a contender too.

    Teaser trailer: http://youtu.be/kqoJA_bvW24

    Directed by Barry Levinson

    Also starring: Hank Azaria, Lily Rabe, Amanda Warren, Nathan Darrow, & Alessandro Nivola.

    I never try to judge something off of a trailer, DeNiro looks great though, not sure about Pfeiffer, nothing in the trailer from her seemed that great but we’ll see.

    By the looks of the trailer, it’s going to be 100 times better than the Madoff miniseries with Richard Dreyfuss.

    Everbody predicts Hank Azaria for this but he was barely in the trailer. Is it just because he won an Emmy last year?

    This has a mere 68 so far on Metacritic. I guess Sherlock wins by default once again? Or Black Mirror becomes the spoiler.

    Wizard of Lies can still win, but I think Black Mirror is the favorite. Won’t be surprised if they just give it to Sherlock again because we all know they probably won’t actually watch any of them.

    Black Mirror is winning  this by a landslide. No doubt

    Preliminary 67 on Metacritic, average rating of 6.5 on Rotten Tomatoes and high score of 83 means no passion and nobody ticking this off first.  Moving Michelle Pfeiffer down to sixth.

    Do you still think De Niro might win?

    I had been predicting Ewan McGregor, but I am not seeing passion for that performance either, so I am switching to Riz Ahmed, per the poll.
