My problem with Morning Show is that sometimes feels so much like a Me Too’s parody, or like Tyler said in another thread, over the top. “You, white guy, come here and play the most obvious stupid guy you can”. I think Carrel is the biggest example of this. Anniston had good material and Witherspoon was good in the finale. Maybe Jennifer could be a good winner, but for me is a boring choice. I don’t know if it is the right word, because she kinda have the performance and it was a nice comeback, maybe she will be a good winner in the end.March 25, 2020 at 5:16 pm #1203394465
I didn’t say she was. I said she didn’t have the worthy material to her lead status. I’m also certain Dern had just as many lines as both, and she went supporting.
On the BLL thread someone counted up all the lines but they no longer have an account so it sadly isn’t visible anymore but for season 2 it was roughly (from when I looked the other day for a separate post): Kidman 350 lines, Witherspoon 310, Dern 260, Streep 245. Witherspoon had the most lines in eps 1-3, Dern had the most in ep 4 and Kidman had the most in eps 5-7. Witherspoon in the premiere is the most lines anyone had in any episode in the season.
I think part of the reason Witherspoon feels less supported in material in the second season is because in season one she had loads. Over 500 lines if I remember correctly against Kidman’s 305 or something.March 25, 2020 at 5:47 pm #1203394487
Ozark with a 90% on RT and a 76 on MC with Laura at the center? 5-time Emmy winner Laura LinneyMarch 25, 2020 at 6:50 pm #1203394545
Looks like we have a series raceMarch 25, 2020 at 8:52 pm #1203394620
Let’s wait for it to actually come out before saying so. The Crown has the same rotten tomatoes score and a higher metacritic score.
So true I definitely overreacted. if you look at the first Crown S3 thread when the review embargo lifted the comments are all about how it’s winning everything, how Colman is sweeping, and how if Netflix can’t win series with it then it they can’t win ever, so we do tend to blow up good reviews around here.March 25, 2020 at 10:13 pm #1203394670
Yayy Ozark finally getting the acclaim it’s always deserved. Love to see it!
Laura Linney kinda had more focus compared to Bateman even in season 2 so… idk… that doesn’t excite me. But I know she’ll kill it… as usual!
And yes. My NGNG- Justin Hartley on This Is Us. They nominated Moore after two snubs and they can do the same for Hartley on his third impressive season (didn’t really deserve for season 1). All categories are stacked but I think Supporting Actor has more space for new nominees.March 25, 2020 at 11:05 pm #1203394741
Canadagraphs, a website up north has conducted its BOTVAs (Best of TV Awards) for 10 years now. They are in the final round of voting in the Best Director category, and yes, they are a bit more mainstream than the academy. As we are in down time between now and July, I’d like folks to comment on their choices. Most are drama, as you’ll see here.
David Ramsey “Reset” (Arrow)
Miguel Sapochnik “The Long Night” (Game Of Thrones)
Danielle Panabaker “Godspeed” (The Flash)
Amanda Tapping “Nihilism” (Supernatural)
Robert Singer “Lebanon” (Supernatural)
Alex O’Loughlin “Ka i’o” and “E’ao lu’au a kualima” (Hawaii Five-O)
Eric Kripke “You Found Me” (The Boys)
David Nutter “The Last Of The Starks” (Game Of Thrones)
Matt & Ross Duffer “The Battle Of Starcourt” (Stranger Things)
Richard Speight Jr. “Proverb 17:3” (Supernatural)
Milo Ventimiglia “Storybook Love” (This Is Us)
Jensen Ackles “Atomic Monsters” (Supernatural)
Freddie Highmore “Risk & Reward” (The Good Doctor)
Katie Cassidy “Leap of Faith” (Arrow)
Taika Waititi “Chapter Eight: Redemption” (The Mandalorian)
Do any of these stand a chance in drama directing this July?March 25, 2020 at 11:06 pm #1203394743
At the rate Justin Hartley is going for a nomination, they will nominate Kate’s cranky neighbor in guest before nominating Justin.March 25, 2020 at 11:26 pm #1203394749
So many nominees yet no Strahovski? Nah. She’s easily ahead of Hunter, Brown and Mbatha-Raw.
Hunter and Mbatha-Raw are NGNG predictions for me, in case of the Acting Branch embracing both shows. I somehow don’t see Strahovski getting in this time around though. And I think MBB is safe until the show ends.
I thought Ben Daniels was great on The Crown, but I really don’t see him making it in over Josh O’Connor. Daniels has a greater episode count, but O’Connor’s the bigger role.
You may be right but it is too early to go with the obvious choice, Let me have my fun and I do hope both can get in actually.
I don’t see Succession getting this many acting noms, i think the most it will get in Cox
Realistically, me neither. But I think at the very least Culkin and Cox are safe.March 26, 2020 at 12:15 am #1203394771
Regarding Rhea Seahorn, I feel like there was a similar narrative for Anna Gunn in Breaking Bad (re: unsung, overlooked, when will she ever…, etc.), and that changed two Emmys later. I wonder if the same could happen with Seahorn.March 26, 2020 at 2:45 am #1203394822

I think Jennifer would be a good winner considering this was a unexpected turn from her and she always delivered despite the sometimes weak material (sometimes because the final three episodes were actually great). Even the singing scene with Cudrup and the confrontation with Marcia Gay Harden during the same party…a true queen.
I would vote her way before Colman who was impeccable but did’t move me the way I was hoping for.
BUT, I have to say, Mandy Moore delivered great work year after year and this might be her best season, even better than season 2 when she was criminally snubbed.
I don’t say she has a chance of winning at the Emmys, but she could become my personal winner.March 26, 2020 at 3:56 am #1203394844
