    Possible triple crowners in next season?

    The biggest chance is Laurie Metcalf who is currently frontrunner for Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in “Lady Bird”. She will also perform on Broadway on “Three Tall Woman” along with multiple Emmy and Oscar winner, Glenda Jackson who never won a Tony despite 4 nominations. These 2 have the best shots. Catherine Zeta-Jones might contend for an Emmy for her role on “Cocaine Godmother”.

    Among actors who already won Christopher Plummer might get another Oscar nomination for “All the Money in the World”. Helen Mirren is Golden Globe nominee for “The Leisure Seeker” but she’s nowhere near Oscar, probably, unlike Frances McDormand who’s poised to get her 2nd Best Actress nomination for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”. Viola Davis has fourth shot for another season of “How to Get Away with Murder” at the Emmys. Is that it?

    I care about triple crowners more for the sake of trivia than anything else, to keep track on what’s going on.

    Is Penelope Cruz going Lead? Was it confirmed?

    A televised award body has to break for her. All the attention is aimed squarely at Metcalf.

    Even if Allison Janney wins Oscar, she still needs to win Tony in order to achieve TCA.

    I know. And I prefer her to prevail since Metcalf’s film legacy doesn’t dictate she should succeed over Janney.

    What does being in more films dictate she should win over someone else? Laurie has had some great film roles and stated she was looking to get back into film. She was amazing in Lady Bird and deserves the Oscar.

    Ok, let’s clarify it once and for all – which Emmy categories are for ACTING?

    Obvious:
    Lead/Supporting/Guest Actor/Actress in a Comedy/Drama Series
    Lead/Supporting Actor/Actor in a Limited Series or Movie
    Actor/Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series
    Character Voice-Over Performance

    Possible:
    Voice-Over Performance (it containts both VO and Narrator, now retired)
    Best Narrator
    Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program
    Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program (now retired, it included basically everything: hosting awards shows, doing concerts or talk shows etc.)

    2018 is here and so onto the first TCA nominations of the year. Oscar nominations came in today and, as predicted, Laurie Metcalf is among Oscar nominees in Best Supporting Actress category for “Lady Bird”. She’s multiple Emmy winner for her role on “Roseanne” and won her first Tony Award just last year for “A Doll’s House, Part 2”. She won a handful of critics awards, even though all televised honors so far were grabbed by Allison Janney for “I, Tonya”.

    Among TCA winners two have extended their Oscar records.

    Frances McDormand has a very good shot at winning her 2nd Best Actress Oscar after “Fargo”, this time for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”. She was also nominated for her supporting turns on “Mississippi Burning”, “Almost Famous” and “North Country”.

    Christopher Plummer got his 3rd Best Supporting Actor nomination for “All the Money in the World” which is notable for him becoming the oldest nominee in the history of the awards at 88 and for the fact that he replaced Kevin Spacey and shot his scenes just in November. Unlike McDormand, he’s his film only nomination as it happened in 2012 when he won for “Beginners” (becoming the oldest winner of competitive Oscar) just two years after he contended for the first time for “The Last Station”.

    I’m so disappointed about Metcalf. If she doesn’t win here (which is looking more and more likely) I don’t think she’ll ever complete the TCA. What a shame.

    ^I wouldn’t count her out yet. I still think it’s an incredibly close race between Janney and Metcalf. My initial impressions of their performances has shifted the more I have thought about them and I now give a slight edge to Metcalf’s performance as the better of the two and this could very well happen with academy voters. Both give excellent performances but I too have been feeling badly for Laurie Metcalf each time Allison Janney wins.
