Sucks that Maya Rudolph missed both here and at the Globes, was looking forward to seeing her receive some much-deserved recognition.
On the upside, Julia Garner finally receives a nomination!!
These are some overall solid nominees, but seeing Julia finally getting recognition has got to be a highlight for me personally. I doubt the Emmys will follow suit, but she was the acting highlight of Ozark for me so I would be quite happy with her getting in there too.December 10, 2018 at 4:59 pm #1202697205
I can’t help but notice that Adventure Time got its 1st Animated Series nod since 2014. Even though I think that show’s storylines fell apart ages ago I kind of want to see it win since it had never won before, as recognition of its undeniable legacy.December 10, 2018 at 7:23 pm #1202697282
I am sooooo thrilled that Schitt’s Creek got nominated!!!!December 11, 2018 at 10:14 am #1202697818
The nominations are good, there are a lot of ignored performers that deserve to be recognized like Jodie Comer.
However, there are also many weird things that does not make sense. Those awards recognize only acting and programs, so it is weird to have nominated dramas, comedies and limited series without acting nominations and we have two dramas, two comedies and 1 limited series that fit that description…
The nominations seem like a mixture between:
-Debra Messing and Richard Madden.
– Porter, Moss, Strahovski and Newton being the only nominees for their shows and no series noms for the last two shows.
-one random acting nominations for Succession
-only one acting nomination for GLOW ignoring the quality jump of season 2.
-Connie Britton out of nowhere.
-Janney, Parsons (at this point of the show) and Metcalf entering because of their status.
-a lot of love for Genius: Picasso and Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.
-the unexpected rescue of Finn Wittrock.
-The Good Fight nominated for drama, but without actors (but they have only one acting category for drama actors, so it is more understandable).
-Recognition of Jodie Comer.
-Huge love for One Day at a Time.
-Incredible and ENORMOUS love for the best show of the last years and of 2018 – The Americans
Some personal trends:
-One acting nom. for Younger.
-Nominating programs without their actors.
-They always nominate Better Call Saul for lead in drama – Odenkirk and for the correct supporting MVP of the season (Banks, McKean, McKean, Seehorn) Only two times for series.
-Acting nominations that can happen only here (for those particular shows, that does not mean that they are bad, just weird and without buzz, acclaim or relevance): Elizabeth Olsen, Diego Luna, Richard Cabral, Dina Shihabi, Julia Garner for Dirty John, William Jackson Harper, Nico Santos, Zoe Perry, Annie Potts, Anna Deavere Smith and Elizabeth Perkins (I have not seen a single one from those with the exception of the cameos of Perkins, so correct me if I am wrong).
-Divine justice according to the vast majority of internet users (I have seen the first three and I agree with all of them)- Jodie Comer, Noah Emmerich, Justin Hartley (first ever for this role), Julia Garner (first ever for this role) for Ozark and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
-Hank Azaria for Brockmire.
-Asia Kate Dillon for Billions.
-Nomination for the actor playing the young version of the ¨Genius¨.
I love comparing stuff when I am bored at the office 😀
Can someone explain me why all the awards have treated Westworld and GLOW so badly (no series and only one acting nomination at both the GG and the CC, no AFI LIST)?December 11, 2018 at 10:20 am #1202697826
The lack of The Hunting of Hill House is disgustingDecember 11, 2018 at 10:21 am #1202697827
Westworld really divided everyone this year so I’m not surprised it hasn’t been getting anything same with The Handmaid’s Tale.December 11, 2018 at 12:47 pm #1202698071
Westworld really divided everyone this year so I’m not surprised it hasn’t been getting anything same with The Handmaid’s Tale.
Yeah, but Westworld was not included for neither one of his seasons at AFI’s, while THT was included for her first season.
Also, Westworld received ZERO nominations for both of his seasons at the TCA, while THT had 4 for the first season (two wins – Best Drama and Program of the year) and 3 for the second season (no wins).
And finally, the male actors from WW have never received any individual nominations outside the Emmys, having in mind that Hopkins and Harris are huge movie stars with ton of acclaim and awards, while Wright is a respected veteran and Tony winner.January 9, 2019 at 6:24 pm #1202728215
