The Television Academy has been informed about the This Is Us nomination for Costumes for a Contemporary Series, Limited Series or Movie. More than half of the episode “Moonshadow” is set in the 1970s and rules require that 51% of the entry be contemporary (within the last 25 years).August 4, 2017 at 2:48 pm #1202174898
I looked it up, and I have heard nothing about this being an issue.August 4, 2017 at 3:13 pm #1202174903
Anything will help. That show must be stopped.August 4, 2017 at 4:11 pm #1202174946
Who do we think the replacement will be?August 4, 2017 at 4:42 pm #1202174983
How did this happen again?August 4, 2017 at 4:44 pm #1202174989
I noticed the submission on the ballot, but figured that they would get away with it because the series was primarily contemporary. The nomination would not have been rescinded if they had submitted any other episode (except “The Big Day”). Down with This is Us!
Some contenders for replacement:
– Better Call Saul (surge in nominations this year)
– Girls (has a history of replacing rescinded nominees)
– The Good Fight (to inherit The Good Wife‘s slot)
– Gotham (nominated two years ago)
– Master of None (surge in nominations this year)
– The Mindy Project (nominated two years ago)
Come through, The Leftovers!August 4, 2017 at 5:06 pm #1202175026
I predict Transparent in Contemporary Costumes will be the replacement nominee since it was nominated last year and Jane Fonda ALSO made it in this year.
Both Grace and Frankie and Transparent are nominees this year.
I deleted that comment out of embarrassment LOL! What episode did The Leftovers submit for Costumes, and isn’t it more sci-fi/fantasy?August 4, 2017 at 5:09 pm #1202175028
Is Mozart in the Jungle eligible in this category? I feel like that could easily get in.August 4, 2017 at 5:45 pm #1202175058
Looking at the nominations ballot, I see a few show that seem viable to replace This is Us: American Horror Story: Roanoke, Baskets, Better Call Saul, black-ish, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Good Fight, Master of None, The Mindy Project, Mr. Robot, and Veep.August 4, 2017 at 5:47 pm #1202175059
Also watch out for “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” — they submitted the lemonade episode. “Veep” and “The Night Of” are also on the ballot here, two programs they love. Tough call!August 4, 2017 at 6:13 pm #1202175110
American Horror Story and The Night Of are ineligible to replace, as Big Little Lies is the official nominee of the limited series and movies on the ballot.August 4, 2017 at 7:04 pm #1202175143
I’m surprised Veep didn’t get in so I’d say that Veep will fill the empty slot. That or The Good Fight.August 4, 2017 at 7:06 pm #1202175144
American Horror Story and The Night Of are ineligible to replace, as Big Little Lies is the official nominee of the limited series and movies on the ballot.
That’s not a thing. Both Feud and Genius are competing in the period costume category.
My money is on The Young Pope.
