    Jeopardizing their guild and Globe nominations is an interesting strategy.

    I know where I’m at, but w/o fail I’m always shocked that the first reax of a show coming out at an interesting time is its awards chances.

    But it is released all at once. Damage is limited in that way.

    Plus buzz around the new series added to the awards buzz = a bloody big force for an already formidable show.

    I’m just happy it got a second season, to be honest. One of my favorite shows of this season.

    It was renewed for two seasons.

    Coming out all at once should negate the late release date, and wouldn’t Amazon send the new season to Globes/SAG voters and critics early regardless?

    They also hired a trans writer.

    Globe and SAG ballots are due December 7th.  SAG screener DVDs are not really a thing.  The only television programs that were available for screening on the SAG website last year were The Honorable Woman and Orphan Black (how Tatiana Maslany got her nomination there and at the Emmys, by the way).  Of course, those categories are not voting on specific episodes, so momentum should be enough.  More notable is that WGA uses a December to November calendar, so Transparent will miss eligibility there altogether.

    I think they’ll be fine for Globes voters regardless.

    Apparently Maura isn’t the central character of S2.
    I wonder if this will change category placements for S2 or not.

    I don’t see that Transparent will necessarily automatically get in for Globes.
    Brooklyn Nine Nine went from win to snub, as did Ugly Betty.

    Transparent is still very much a massive show though. Possibly bigger now than it was when it won. I still see it winning Comedy Series, and maybe Empire for Drama Series at the Globes. Brooklyn Nine Nine didn’t catch alight in the way Transparent has.

    It doesn’t feel massive or alight with the general audience, and I think that’s where Globe voters look for buzz when their fallback of “new show with solid acclaim” isn’t working out.
     
    No one I know talks about it, and if imdb is any indication there aren’t all that many people who’ve even checked it out.

    Super excited! Hope they do a free day again so I can watch it without getting an account
