    The new comedy “Blunt Talk” premieres August 22 on Starz (watch the
    first two episodes now). Will this finally be Sir Patrick Stewart’s path
    to a Golden Globe, Emmy, etc.? He plays a drug and alcohol abusing TV
    news journalist from England now living in Los Angeles. It’s a very
    over-the-top role with him chewing the scenery on a weekly basis.

    His awards history…

    Four
    Emmy nominations for “Moby Dick” (1998), “The Lion in Winter” producing
    (2004), “Extras” (2006), and “Hamlet” (2010) with no wins.

    Two Golden Globe nominations for “Moby Dick” (1999) and “The Lion in Winter” (2005) with no wins.

    Three SAG nominations for “Star Trek: The Next Generation” (1995), “A Christmas Carol” (2000) and “Macbeth” (2011) with no wins.

    “Patrick Stewart in a new comedy…”

    Yay!

    “…on Starz.”

    Oooooooh.

    I hope the show is great, as I do love Patrick Stewart, but Emmy voters have just not latched onto that network, so far. I’ll remain skeptical of its awards chances for now.

    The first two episodes are already on On Demand and I watched them. He is the best thing about it but it seems like it is trying too hard to be Network. He might get some Globes love but that’s all
