He’s funny…his movies are bad usually, but he is a genuinely funny comedian
Most of his jokes fall flat imo. They’re almost always dirty which I don’t mind but still usually don’t find funny. That doesn’t mean his movies are utterly bad though. Lately they’ve all been trash, but I watched Murder Mystery a few days ago and I thorougly enjoyed it. I thought it was a very decent script, don’t think he wrote or co-wrote it though. Haven’t seen his SNL ep yet. Could Danny DeVito replace him?June 23, 2019 at 4:36 am #1202948468

Why is the directors name on the ballot but the writers names are not

They are different branches, so they make their own rules. Makeup has names, but costumes does not. The writers and costumers decided that they wanted to take name recognition out of the equation.June 24, 2019 at 10:02 pm #1202950592
And now, friends and enemies, voting on the 2019 Emmy nominees is officially CLOSED. Whether they turn out to be a ginormous clusterfork or substance finally being rewarded over style, we’ll find out July 16.July 9, 2019 at 7:09 am #1202967586
Do you guys believe someone will finally achieve ultraclean sweep?
If Jodie Comer had Oh’s name recognition, she would.July 10, 2019 at 4:41 am #1202969175
I have noticed many people here do not know what a clean sweep is. Let me explain then. First it only counts if it’s for one role.
Clean sweep: GG, SAG and Emmy
Clean sweep+: GG, SAG, Emmy and TCA
Ultra clean sweep: GG, SAG, Emmy and BAFTA
Ultra clean sweep+: GG, SAG, Emmy, TCA and BAFTA
Many people have achieved clean sweep, only some clean sweep+ but absolutely no one has ever achieved ultra clean sweep. If I’m not mistaken two or three people were very close but lost BAFTA. No one was even close to ultra clean sweep+. Do you guys believe someone will finally achieve ultra clean sweep?
Olivia Colman most likely.July 10, 2019 at 9:01 am #1202969513
Off-topic but I think this is the best place to ask this question, does anyone know how to access to 2011 ballots?July 10, 2019 at 9:29 pm #1202970215
Thank you.July 11, 2019 at 9:59 pm #1202971722
Daniel Montgomery delivered a sobering article a couple of days ago, and I thought that instead of its own thread, the general discussion area would be the best place for what will be a frank exchange of views:
If the top 7 predicted nominees for Comedy Series by GD holds true Tuesday, Daniel points out the average number of episodes per nominee would be an alarming 9.1, the lowest average in the 71 year history of the awards. And god fvcking forbid if Fleabag is in the mix, then the average plunges lower than Trump’s IQ.
This. Is. Wrong. People. And. You. KNOW. It’s. Wrong.
Brevity is the coward’s way out, not the soul of wit. Six episodes is not a season. It is a hiccup. Screw the Brits. Emmys NEED to adopt a rule next year. ANY comedy or drama that doesn’t have a minimum of 10 episodes is automatically shipped to Limited Series. It will improve that category, and give a fighting chance to those who still believe in telling a story that takes a bit of time to unfold, and not blink, and you’ll miss it.
Reckoning time next week; style over substance? has a new question beside it; warp speed comedies/dramas or tradition? There is not one scintilla of a reason why a 6 to 9-episode series shouldn’t get DQ’d from comedy or drama when Limited Series is there. Or add a new category, Short Form Series Presentation. You are penalizing those shows and networks that do not wish to have such anomalies.
So what say you, then?July 11, 2019 at 10:05 pm #1202971727
I think only shows that have at least 20 episodes like normal network shows should be eligible in those categories. It’s only fair since that’s how tv shows have operated for decades.
Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, SurvivorJuly 11, 2019 at 10:28 pm #1202971740
Rachel, with due respect, ‘six episodes is not a season’. And I hold Fleabag’s breathtaking, self-imposed levity against it.July 11, 2019 at 10:31 pm #1202971744
OR!!!! Networks could join the party and start making programs with shorter seasons. In a crowded tv landscape, nobody wants to spend 22 hours with one show when they could watch three in that amount of time. Bonus: this could lead to a resurgence in acclaim for network series if they aren’t plagued by filler episodes. It’s not a coincidence The Good Place is the only network comedy being predicted in the odds and it has 13 instead of the typical 20+ episodes in a season.
TV used to consist of under five channels with programs entirely in black and white. It’s an ever-changing medium. That’s not going to stopJuly 11, 2019 at 10:43 pm #1202971762
Tyler, that’s why I propose the cutoff at 10 episodes. Any show can still go the Good Place route (14 epis next season) and not go the full 22/23/24. 10 at least gives broadcast network shows the OPTION of reducing their series orders. But once TGP is gone, 2021 will be the end of big-four participation at the Emmys in the big ticket comedy and drama categories, I fear.
Six episodes is just. too. short. It’s one thing if the 6 episode route is imposed on a show, like it was for Canada’s best imported show from 2012-16, Continuum, thanks to Shaw Cable’s decision to end the series. Fans fought like here for 6 months to get a full season, and only got 6 to wrap it up. It’s quite the other when the decision to go 6 is voluntary.
And if you have Short Form Series, then you open the prospect of having comedies and dramas compete against each other. Like the Saturn Awards when they used to have Best Presentation (< than 10 episodes), which they will phase out with this year’s awards on September 13.
