Emmy FYC : Ye..

    Reading. Is. Fundamental. “I truly believe The Good Place will be her final on-screen TV role.TV. Not a complete retirement from the medium. O’Hara will get another role or two, and maybe she’ll graduate from the boondocks of Pop TV next time.

    Catherine O’Hara is a respected actress who has been nominated for 5 Emmys in her lifetime (winning one for writing) and has starred in a variety of films and series (including an Emmy award winning TV film).

    I highly doubt the Emmys are going to think it is the last chance to award Kristen Bell who is only 39 and is only remembered for starring in Veronica Mars (which she should have won an Emmy for) and The Good Place.

    FYC Emmys : Jodie Comer ("Killing Eve"), Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials"), Russell Tovery ("Years and Years"), Helena Bonham Carter ("The Crown") & The Crown, His Dark Materials, Years and Years, Succession and The Affair in all categories. The Politician : Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bette Midler and Judith Light.

    FYC Goldderby Awards : MAURA TIERNEY AND DOMINIC WEST FOR THE FINAL SEASON OF THE AFFAIR

    TV. Not a complete retirement from the medium. O’Hara will get another role or two, and maybe she’ll graduate from the boondocks of Pop TV next time.

    I dont see it being Bells final TV role especially considering the success shes har on shows like The Good Place, House of Lies and Veronica Mars. I dont understand why she would leave the medium after having a run of successful series. I see her being cast in another show without any hesitation and I would love for Kristen to get nominated for The Good Place especially considering this was her strongest season but I’m more realistic and k ow its extremely unlikely. So hopefully she can get a nom but of not shell go on to another show that will hopefully help her get closer to that nomination she deserves.

    Is Kristen Bell even getting in? That seems to already be a big hurdle for her, and a win is impossible.

    $2,730,829,215. The combined global boxoffice of the #10 and #16 movies on its all time list. Both headlined by Kristen Bell. (Frozen & Frozen II). I think her movie career is OK. I hope you’re right and I’m wrong. Right now, I don’t see it that way.

    It’s Disney so that’s the reason for the box office. it was going to do amazing anyway

    Fixed that last sentence for ya.

    An Applegate candidacy is so much blue sky over the horizon, as Dead to Me’s pitch black “comedy” is an example of genre fraud. There are camps, obvi, for Brosnahan and O’Hara. But IF she gets in 2 months from next week, the dark horse won’t be Applegate. She’ll get another season of DTM. The true alternative choice, if Brosnahan and O’Hara somehow and unlikely split the vote, will be Bell.

    This is it for her; I truly believe The Good Place will be her final on-screen TV role. She’s in Apple TV’s Central Park debuting next week, and will reprise the voice of Gossip Girl in HBOMax’s 2021 revival. What better way to cap a 19-year TV career (she made her TV debut on The Shield, back in 2001) than to give her one heck of a parting gift. Again, always prefaced by adding the key phrase, in an ideal world.

    It’s funny because in this ideal world you live in, Bell somehow warrants a sort of career award, which apparently is this year’s Emmy. I say it’s funny because I don’t think anyone else feels that way lmao.

    O’Hara and Brosnahan aren’t splitting votes. That’s not how voting works. Those two (along with Applegate) will take up a majority of the votes, leaving whatever little amount of votes left for the other nominees, of which Bell probably won’t be lol.

    I agree with this, but didn’t we have an Emmy cycle not that long ago where the main narrative was how it was the LaSt ChaNcE!!!1! to award 34-year-old one-time Emmy nominee Claire Foy for a role she played for a whole two (2) years.

    Yes, but Foy’s performance was a universally acclaimed and beloved star making turn that’s already been hailed as one of TV’s greatest performances. The same can’t be said of Bell.

    If anyone from The Good Place is winning, it’s Danson or Rudolph. Damson, cause he’s a TV legend who gives arguably the most popular performance on the show, or Rudolph, who’s a respected veteran in a category that’s beyond empty.

    It will be very interesting when the nominations come out and then the fighting will really get insane.

    I thought Foy was terrific both seasons of The Crown but I wasn’t rooting for her that second year and I definitely wasn’t using that narrative. For those who were, I’m sure it was more “she’s unbelievable in this particular role and this is the last chance to reward her for THAT” whereas this Bell “talk” sounds like it’s for her career as a whole.

    If I remember correctly (and keep in mind I love The Crown and thought the arguement was a bit flimsy at the time too and was rooting for Oh that go around and stil think Foy should have won for S1) it was becuase it was her last chance as the Queen since she wasn’t coming back and the role was being recast cuz of the age up

    I’ve watched enough of Little America now to say that it is definitely the biggest category fraud of the year.

    With all this Bell talk going around I do think she is getting nominated à la Mandy Moore last year but she is nowhere near winning. This race is simply O’Hara vs Brosnahan alone (and we know this already from Schitt’s Creek’s buzz for its final season and Maisel’s huge upsets at SAG).

    I think Maisel is going to be the GoT of this year in the Comedy categories. Even if it doesn’t win everything it is still going to dominate the acting and directing categories and is going to win at least one acting award (my bet is on Shalhoub and/or Borstein) and Series. I think Schitt’s Creek is going to be the Killing Eve of this year, it will get all four of its principal cast members in and get nominated for writing and maybe directing but it will only win Actress and I think The Good Place is the This is Us of this year, it will explode in nominations because of how empty the field is and maybe win for Danson.

    At the moment I think the above the line nominations for the show will be as follows :

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel : Series, Actress (Brosnahan), Supporting Actress (Borstein), Supporting Actress (Hinkle), Supporting Actress (Lynch), Supporting Actor (Brown), Supporting Actor (Shalhoub), Supporting Actor (Zeagan), Guest Actor (Kirby), Guest Actor (Levi), Guest Actress (Sykes), Writing, Directing, Directing, Directing

    Possible Additional Nominees : Caroline Aaron, Leroy McClain, Jason Alexander

    Surprise Over-performance : Kevin Pollack, Stephanie Hsu

    Schitt’s Creek : Series, Actress (O’Hara), Actor (Levy), S. Actor (Levy), S.Actress (Murphy), Guest Actor (Garber), Writing

    Possible Additional Nominees : Emily Hampshire, Noah Reid, Directing

    The Good Place : Series, Actress (Bell), Actor (Danson), S.Actor (Jackson Harper), S. Actress (Carden), Writing, Writing, Guest Actress (Maya Rudolph)

    Possible Additional Nominees: Lisa Kudrow, Directing

    Surprise Over-performance : Marc Evan Jackson, Manny Jacinto

    FYC Emmys : Jodie Comer ("Killing Eve"), Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials"), Russell Tovery ("Years and Years"), Helena Bonham Carter ("The Crown") & The Crown, His Dark Materials, Years and Years, Succession and The Affair in all categories. The Politician : Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bette Midler and Judith Light.

    It’s a fun soapy binge. It’s not going to contend for Emmys although Ben Platt is deserving of a nomination. Judith Light and Bette Middler might sneak into guest category.

    I don’t watch Maisel but I remember people saying Sterling Brown doesn’t do anything awards worthy in it, is it true?
