Yikes…the original GLOW was much better.August 10, 2017 at 9:11 pm #1202181816This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 28, 2017 at 7:27 am #1202225607
Just finished the first season yesterday and mostly enjoyed it. I don’t know how much Emmy love I see it getting, but I would wholly support a Supporting Actor nod for Marc Maron. I love Alison Brie and she had a couple of standout showcases, but there were also a few times when they asked her to pull off a little bit too much and she didn’t quite rise above the flaws in the material. Betty Gilpin, Sydelle Noel, and Britney Young were standouts among the supporting cast.
Trudy fucking Harry was very disturbing to me.
The show veered strongly to the dramatic side in structure.December 19, 2017 at 5:12 pm #1202444780
I’ve finally watched the first three episode this afternoon. It’s a great show. Brie and Marin are fantastic.
Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, SurvivorMay 2, 2018 at 1:22 pm #1202539404
Just interviewed Betty Gilpin! I asked what episode she is going to submit and she has no idea, but said that I should let her know which one it should be. Who wants to decide? Tell me what episode and why.May 2, 2018 at 2:26 pm #1202539431This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 2, 2018 at 2:45 pm #1202539436
What sticks out in my mind is the confrontation in the pilot. If the show connects with the voters, she can get in off the strength of those scenes.May 2, 2018 at 4:22 pm #1202539462
While after initially after watching the show I made a note that she should submit the finale, after scrubbing through episodes, she should definitely submit “Live Studio Audience”. It’s probably here most screentime, we get to see her dramatic stuck up persona and physical comedy from her training, but it’s finished off with a 5 minutes scene of her goofy “Liberty Bell” persona, and a two minute crying scene at the end. She shows her dramatic chops but still has plenty of comedic material, and gets to showcase her range.
All of this. Totally.May 11, 2018 at 10:27 am #1202545313
Voters have the complete season now. They are submitting only their series regulars, although I am supposed to be interviewing Jackie Tohn, so I suppose that she is submitting herself. For directing, they are submitting Jesse Peretz (either “Pilot” or “Live Studio Audience”) and Sian Heder (“Maybe It’s All the Disco”). For writing, they have Jenji Kohan (“This is One of Those Moments”) and the pair of Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch (as there are two of them, they could have submitted up to two of their four episodes, although I bet that they just went with one). Not sure that GLOW can withstand vote-splitting in either category; the pilot better be submitted because it will stand out as a title. Three episodes for editing is also excessive, but Emmy winner William Turro’s only episode was the ACE-nominated pilot, so it will be fine.May 11, 2018 at 10:46 am #1202545317This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 11, 2018 at 10:53 am #1202545321
I guess not. She was on the Curb Your Enthusiasm submissions list, so maybe her people decided internally to focus on that for this category. Better that she does not split her votes.May 24, 2018 at 7:26 pm #1202553507This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.May 24, 2018 at 7:27 pm #1202553508
My guess is that Chris is thinking that she might submit herself.
