I’m really sick of all these Stranger Things nominations. This might be a one year jolt of support then next year everyone forgets about it.CourtneyParticipantJoinedJun 10th, 2014Total Topics1Posts269January 11, 2017 at 1:26 pm #1201985697
I am happy Stranger Things is being recognized. So often genre shows, unless you’re Game of Thrones, aren’t recognized. It’s a smart, well-done show. The pacing, story, acting are all great. It’s nice that popular and critical opinion are coming together.January 11, 2017 at 2:07 pm #1201985719
Why was OJ put in the drama series category? It’s been limited or movie/mini everywhere else. Feel kind of ripped off that it took up two slots in a category where it didn’t really belong.
I guess that will be Atlanta’s directing submission or at least one of them. It definitely had some showy and flashy aspects to it so I understand the choice but it’s not really representative of the general look and style of the series as a whole.
It feels anti-climatic in a sense to make the guild rounds after that season’s shot at the Emmys but Game of Thrones should definitely win with Westworld in second.January 11, 2017 at 2:11 pm #1201985721
DGA nominated the second season of American Horror Story in miniseries, but the first season of American Crime Story is a drama? At least we get a simulation for what would have happened if American Crime Story had been a drama at the Emmys. Game of Thrones not being able to get Jack Bender a nomination is pretty bad, I think. It also speaks to the strength of Westworld and Stranger Things. Will Ryan Murphy finally win his first DGA Award (or popular-vote directing award)? The Crown is clearly a distant third, assuming that it does not get snubbed at CDG tomorrow because then we would know that the issue is just visibility.
I guess that “Mother” was closer to the Emmy than “Morning After”. It seems that “Founder Friendly” and “Daily Active Users” were as well. Transparent is out.
Looks like Master of None is being completely overrun by Atlanta. The former has a grand total of zero guild nominations to date (not even best casting for a first-year comedy series); Atlanta has PGA, DGA and WGA. For those who have not seen Atlanta, the episode by Donald Glover nominated here is the experimental, format-breaking episode in which Glover does not appear. Too bad that their producing director who did seven of the season’s ten episodes is not nominated instead for the pilot, but Glover is the bigger name and “B.A.N.” is the flashier episode, so I expect this to repeat at the Emmys.
So weird that Madoff gets DGA and WGA after being shut out at the Emmys. Jay Roach versus The Night Of provides some suspense. After winning the last two years, Jimmy Fallon is out for Samantha Bee. Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine, The Place Beyond the Pines) picked up his first DGA nomination, for a Nike commercial.
Going back to the makeup awards, they completely forgot about past favourites Downton Abbey and Vikings. Also, I wonder if they submitted the 2052 or the 2017/2022 material in contemporary. Or maybe they submitted the inside-the-park stuff in period because of the western theme?January 11, 2017 at 2:19 pm #1201985728

Assuming you are talking about Westworld I imagine that they probably just submitted all the “corporate” material into contemporary and anything in the park as fantasy/period.StretchyParticipantJoinedAug 25th, 2014Total Topics2Posts239January 11, 2017 at 2:53 pm #1201985754
I guess the first ep. is the easier option for Stranger Things but i think the finale would be more competitive for the win…at the Emmys, not here since GoT’s got this. That, and Episode 3 (by Shawn Levy) should be the Emmy submissions IMO, but they’ll probably just go with this.KwameParticipantJoinedJul 17th, 2016Total Topics0Posts188January 11, 2017 at 4:57 pm #1201985863

Didn’t even know it was possible to get multiple noms for the same show but it looks like WW had one costume designer for the pilot and another for the rest of the series. I wonder why they wouldn’t just nominate both under one slot? Either way, well deserved. Tough to pick between that and The Crown.

Looks like Outlander is getting pushed out here at the Emmys. The Stranger Things nomination is actually noted for being for the “series”, so it looks like the pilot was snubbed. The pilot designer is still nominated though because she just got a co-designer from the third episode on. It actually makes me wonder whether she submitted the pilot at all; CDG unfortunately does not have a public submissions list like ADG.
How did Grace and Frankie (and House of Cards) hold off American Crime Story (contemporary for this guild), The Night Of, Black Mirror, Better Call Saul and Mr. Robot?
We have a break now, so check out the updated tallies on the first page. Bolstered by the crafts, Transparent has caught up to Veep and Silicon Valley in terms of number of guilds, despite its PGA and DGA snubs. Should we be concerned about the low counts for This is Us, The Crown and The Americans? Downton Abbey has only gotten one nomination.

Are we sure they have that strong of a correlation between them?
Emmy winner The Night Manager isn’t even nominated here despite the lack of anthologies in the category.
