    I watched VINYL the other night the new HBO drama from Terrence Winter & Martin Scorsese which he directed. Some of it was really entertaining but it was a 2-hour pilot and some of it just dragged on and made it boring for. However this show has a lot of similarities to Boardwalk Empire which the academy ate up with a spoon and I can totally see them loving this with a spoon too. So will Marty walk his way to another EMMY award for the pilot this year for sure?

    Yeah he is winning. It could be 2 hours of a chair standing still but if Scorsese directed it they would give him one in a heartbeat. They want him up on that stage

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Generally the only way movie stars/directors don’t win is if there is another undeniable contender in their way. David Fincher cake-walked to a win even though his series didn’t win anything else major. Steven Soderbergh got nominated even though his show didn’t get nominated anywhere else. But if w’ere comparing it to actors (which I know isn’t exactly the same but it generally sticks that for either if youre more known for movies than TV, it helps) everyone thought McConaghey (I will literally never learn to spell his name and I’m ok with it) would win but there was just no denying the Breaking Bad sweep. This is a long wordy way of saying, unless there is another episode that has something super exciting about it that becomes the NECESSARY winner, then yea Scorsese could win for directing a sink running for an hour.

    “Chapter One” and “Boardwalk Empire” were perfectly fine episodes, probably the best episodes of those shows. Maybe not the very best in their categories, but it’s not hard to see why voters preferred them without seeing the name who directed. I know Frank talking to the camera gimmick gets worn off as the show goes on but I don’t think anyone had a problem with that in the pilot. Another thing I noticed about directing categories is that they usually pick the “best episode” overall in that group instead of particularly focusing directing. In TV there is no way of understanding where the work of director starts and ends as most of the crucial decisions are being made by executive producers and writers. That’s why pilots used to win here all the time, they were easy to follow as they introduce the story and characters to the audience.

    It’s hard to guess what will happen this year with popularity vote but if Vinyl gets in lot more categories than expected including series, sup.actor, editing etc. I might predict Scorsese. But he’s not a lock by all means.

    What if they bring back the tape system? I don’t think Vinyl’s pilot is as good or flashy as other pilots that have won in this category and it being 2-hour long won’t help its case. But if its main competitors will be Homeland’s s5 premiere and an ordinary episode of GoT(The big war episode will be aired after the ballots were handed out) it’ll come down between that and Mr.Robot’s pilot.

    I cant see how he misses the nomination, but I’m not so sure about a win. The switch in voting last year made sweeps more likely as evidenced by Soderbergh losing directing, so unless they really love Vinyl, Scorsese will probably lose to GOT or whatever show they go with.

    The nomination is practically a given. But depending on the other 5 nominees, the win will be harder than just a name recognition victory.

    You KNOW he’ll be nominated. I quite enjoyed the Pilot (although I’m not so sure it needed to be 2 HOURS).
