Why SAG? Globes don’t have as much category limitations and are more open to nominate left field contenders like the ones that have been mentioned so far.September 10, 2017 at 7:00 pm #1202209442
As suspected, Limited Series will be a real nailbiter till the end between The Night Of and BLL. Below the line bros fully support the latter while above the line (at least directors and producers that voted on it at Casting) prefers BLL. Don’t think we’ve had a situation like this in the new system(GoT, OJ and Olive Kitteridge sweeped both) so we’ll see who’ll have their say at the end.September 10, 2017 at 10:33 am #1202208976

Well, I didn’t even get she was the one on your avatar till now.
I partly agree with M. I think they like and respect her for keeping Holywood alive and will continue to cast and nominate her when possible, but there won’t be many people that lose their sleep over her being Oscar-less. She has yet to stun everybody with an unforgettable performace that is identified with her and she’s sadly past the hot and young era of her life that’s been enough for some to win theirs.
Supporting- most likely. Lead-if the right, The Artist type of vibrant and crowdpleasing project comes her way.September 3, 2017 at 6:39 pm #1202202930
I am generally of the opinion that actors in the limited races should go lead, if they can. When the year is not as strong as this one, it will be hard for Academy to find 12 leads from 12 high profile longform program in the eligible year. They can’t check perennial nominees in shows they once watched like they do in Drama/Comedy either. Even in a year like this where we had double leads everywhere, I’ve struggled to find a 6th lead actress to put in my predictions and I am not entirely sure who would have been strong enough for the 7th and 8th slots(in the case of a tie).September 3, 2017 at 6:29 pm #1202202925
If anything, y’all should worry if sally Hawkins will get in SAG, since she didn’t get in there happy go lucky or blue jasmine and SAG wasn’t around when holly hunter/Marlee Matlin won their Oscars, so we only have 1 example of a mute performance getting industry acclaim. If she misses that then her winning chances do drop quite a bit for an Oscar and a nomination
If she misses, yes. But it’s not like they are immune to the word of mouth and too independent from the Academy that they might have a reservation against some type of performances. Their voting bloc already changes from year to year. The only difference being them in general, not being as old-skewing and highbrow as AMPAS(which also might be changing as Academy continues to invite more young blood every year)September 3, 2017 at 12:51 pm #1202202758
I’ve only watched some of This Is Us as well, and was Pilot the best tape she’s had or was it just a savvy choice on her part to submit the introduction of her character? I’d like to check it out if she has had something better in the following episodes.September 3, 2017 at 12:18 pm #1202202738
I mean, her category was unusually crowded this year – I think it’s fairly unprecedented for two Emmy favorites to have a pair of female leads each. I think given her popularity she stands a chance depending on how the rest of the category shakes out.
But wasn’t Paulson competing in supporting this year?September 3, 2017 at 1:17 am #1202202352
S Shutyour disgusting mouth. You are a disgrace. Winslet is an amazing actress – much better than Sally Hawkins – and she doesn’t deserve to be called as a slut. If I’d be a moderator you’d be long gone. You are also delusional. Winslet didn’t work much after her win, she has gave birth to another child, but at least she was still managed to get some Golden Globe love, also she won the Emmy and the SAG. Not to mention she was a runner-up to Alicia Vikander.
Welcome back Vincelette.September 1, 2017 at 4:28 pm #1202201428
I enjoy Headey but I’ve always wondered how fun it would be if she played it more closer to the book Cersei and made her more paranoid, feminine and cheeky instead of the ever-icy-queen we’ve got.
Show Cersei is definitely a more consistent and complex character than her book counterpart who’s just pure evil(one of D&D’s better inventions) but it would have been interesting to see a female villain on the show that is so irredeemable after Joffrey and Ramsay.September 1, 2017 at 10:57 am #1202201194
Atlanta also got no SAG nominations in a year when SAG actually was receptive to new shows (The Crown, Stranger Things, Westworld, This is Us) and did not resort to name-checking nominees and yet couldn’t find any room for Atlanta anywhere?
Shows that got noticed by SAG in their first year in the recent memory: Boardwalk Empire, Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Modern Family, Glee, UKS (almost all were rating draws)
Shows that got snubbed in their first year before winning the next; Transparent, Veep, Homeland(all either around 1M or lower)
So the issue seems to be more about the (low) viewership of the aforesaid shows not being able to reach the hundred thousand member of SAG in their first year before other visible award shows put them on the map. And in that case it might be somewhat unfair to compare Atlanta to rating juggernauts like Stranger Things and This Is Us and expect it to do just as well just because they were all new shows. Maybe Glover should have been able to do what Malek did last year but Atlanta aired much later, this is the guild that never nominated Girls despite its countless acting noms at the Emmys so we know how averse they are towards auteur-driven niche shows in the first place.
That being said, no SAG snubbee went on to win a lead acting Emmy so far in this new system(just like on the film side) and I am also reluctant of predicting Glover. I guess this will be the year we’ll understand how much it matters.August 31, 2017 at 10:08 am #1202200285
Cersei is probably the best character among them and Sansa is my personal favorite but I’d rank the main actressess as follows:
Williams>(Fairley)>Headey>(Dormer)>Turner>Clarke and I consider all but Clarke as consistent and interesting actors.
Williams, surprisingly has been shining from the very first season when she was a child and managed to uplift some subpar material along the way, while Turner has continously upped her game since s2.August 27, 2017 at 8:42 pm #1202196805
I agree that Cersei wouldn’t kill Jamie but I’m disappointed that all of the central characters are still alive. Littlefinger was bound to die. He isn’t one of the main characters. I’d have been fine with Theon dying too.
What a weird thing to complain about.
And Littlefinger has been the single most impactful character that has drastically changed the direction of almost every storyline that isn’t related to WW or Dany from the beginning. He is even partly the reason of both Margaery’s and Cersei’s imprisonments and therefore the fall of their houses. His death, in a way, symbolizes the rest of the game of thrones after seven years since we are due for a more simplistic war of survival now, at the end. You say he’s not a main character based on the paycheck the actor that plays him gets?June 14, 2017 at 11:08 am #1202121036
Random observation – I don’t think I’ve ever looked at the ballot for special visual effects before but I was pretty shocked to see how sparse it is considering how many shows use effects. The main category only has 15 entries and supporting effects has 16 entries, both for five slots. Those are pretty great odds.
There used to be more but they have recently switched to a three-step process to minimize the effects of name-checking. So these 15 names(must have been a tie in the supporting category) are our semi-finalists selected by the committee.
