The same article also mentions that:
True Detective may go Drama Series
Damian Lewis is Lead
Allison Janney is LeadMarch 12, 2014 at 10:30 am #312690
Well, this changes everything.March 12, 2014 at 10:33 am #312691
Finally something to take down Modern FamilyMarch 12, 2014 at 10:34 am #312692
GAMECHANGER!!!!March 12, 2014 at 10:37 am #312693
YAAAASSSS this is good. I know it’s supposed to get more dramatic in season 2 but I do still think it’s light-hearted enough to be in comedy.
As for the others, Lewis in lead is just LOL but Janney in lead is a somewhat disappointing move. She would’ve had a great shot at winning in Supporting and now she won’t have much of a shot against JLD. She also might kick out Faris since she’s the more beloved Emmy star.March 12, 2014 at 10:38 am #312694
Lead Actress in a comedy has suddenly gotten more interesting. Somebody stop JLD!
‘Orange’ is not a comedy. It’s just not. But Netflix has really fucked up its chances with this flip-flopping. If they said from the get-go it was going comedy and stuck to their guns it would have done well at the Globes and be in a position to perhaps win the Comedy Series Emmy. Don’t see it happening now, especially if season 2 is as heavy as has been rumored.
We gonna have to put a hold on this Breaking Bad sweep if ‘True’ goes drama series (not that it was sweeping anyhow. If only Robin Wright would go supporting and really F it up for BB).March 12, 2014 at 10:44 am #312695
Orange Is the New Black going comedy –> this hurts Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s chances. No nomination for you. Parks and Recreation is also toast.
Damian Lewis going lead –> nothing new
Allison Janney going lead –> noooooo, go supporting.March 12, 2014 at 10:46 am #312696
OINTB vs.Modern Family (vs. Veep?)
Louis-Dreyfus vs. Schilling
True Detective vs. Breaking Bad vs. House of Cards
McConaughey vs. Cranston vs. Spacey (vs. Harrelson?)
Damn this is gonna be FUNMarch 12, 2014 at 10:47 am #312697
I don’t think TD will go Series.
For one thing, Miniseries/TV Movie is kinda a barren wasteland.March 12, 2014 at 10:52 am #312698
House of Cards is not a contender to win Series.
Janney probably has more of chance at winning than Schilling.March 12, 2014 at 10:54 am #312699
Ooh. I missed the True Detective news. Breaking Bad’s lone win would be Anna Gunn.March 12, 2014 at 10:57 am #312700
Surprising, but not shocking. The biggest surprise to me is the OITNB move, especially after Schilling got a Globe nod in the competitive drama actress category. I always suspected True Detective would go drama, as HBO doesn’t play by other network “games” and didn’t even submit Luck in longform in a weak longform and strong drama year. Janney’s pretty much been a co-lead, so this feels more genuine (although actors can still override network placement decisions, right?). And Lewis might as well stay lead and see what happens, as I believe some of his episodes would warrant the placement, even if the entirety of the season does not.March 12, 2014 at 11:05 am #312701
I am this confused about Orange Is The New Black and its categories:March 12, 2014 at 11:10 am #312702
I’m not holding my breath for Orange Is The New Black. I mean, are we even sure that the Emmys will embrace it? Yes, they threw House Of Cards a bone by giving it a few wins (I’m still attributing the Directing win mostly to David Fincher, though), but the gross underperformance of Arrested Development last year is still vivid.
