    I am laughing at how they basically were like “no you’re not getting an Emmy” to Hugh Grant and Ethan Hawke.

    It’s his turn now…

    I was slightly surprised to see “Schitt’s Creek” take two awards given the HFPA’s propensity to reward shiny new things, but maybe I underestimated how hard it might be for there to be a consensus pick between “The Great”/Fanning and “The Flight Attendant”/Cuoco, which maybe is a sign of things to come. Sudeikis’ win was a bit more expected even though he also faced Levy from the series winner and Hoult from another new show, so even though I don’t buy that the Globes mean too much (especially this year), it should be a clear indicator of where things are going this season. I won’t say lock until he takes SAG, but it’s only a matter of time. And ultimately he gave one of the more memorable acceptance speeches and if this show is good for anything, it’s that. The dominance from “The Crown” was expected and if even the HFPA couldn’t find anything new to reward (though arguably Corrin and O’Connor could be considered “new”), then it is a clear indicator of where that show stands in this race. “The Queen’s Gambit” and Taylor-Joy’s wins were expected and deserved, but no “I May Destroy You” and with the recent trend of many limited series premiering late in the season to capitalize on Emmys leads me to think it won’t necessarily be smooth sailing all the way. HFPA had a chance to deviate from the Emmys but chose Ruffalo anyway, and if SAG goes for him as well, we’ll want to look at winter/spring contenders for the Emmy versus Hawke or Grant. That all changes if someone other than Ruffalo takes SAG, which is possible. I don’t know that people watched his show but he is clearly beloved and sometimes you can win SAG just on that. The Boyega win makes total sense in observing Globes history but I don’t know where he will fit into the Emmys race. I guess if he was successful in supporting here, there’s no reason to stray. Overall, the TV winners weren’t too shocking and I don’t know how much they inform the forthcoming guilds and the Emmys season this summer, so we’ll just have to see where some of those awards go in the next few weeks.

    TV awards were so predictable that as a newbie I got all of them correct and 27th rank. I seriously feel that like the rest of us HFPA just sat at home and watched only TV this past year, and then just hit random on their film ballots.

    The Crown is the second Drama Series in history to have won again after having not won for a season in between its previous win.

    The other show that did this was The X Files.

    10/12 frontrunners winning

    I’d be interested in seeing the results for previous years. I think this is surely the highest number of frontrunners winning?

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    That was my thought too. The Emmy winner will be someone from a winter/spring show.

    Double lead winners, sag era:

    The Crown

    Homeland

    30 Rock

    Sopranos

    X-Files

     

    Hmm, given the 10% success rate of comedies in supporting, I guess it makes sense that SC only took 1 acting win then.

    My instinct tells me it will be one of Alexander, McGregor or Aaron Pierre (The Underground Railroad) but of course we could have another contender who enters this race and surprises.

    You guys almost convinced me The Crown won’t sweep. The show exploded with its latest season. Corrin and Anderson were the highlight so they easily won over their co-stars. O’Connor was in a weak category and I couldn’t convince myself to predict anyone else. Murphy was never winning – comedic performances rarely win in supporting and her winning would make sense only as a part of a full sweep for the show, which was never happening.

    I’m happy I got wrong only O’Hara and Ruffalo considering how the Globes tend to be unpredictable. I didn’t make any last-minute changes here (unlike on the film side) and it paid off.

    Ruffalo seems like he’s going to sweep right under our noses. I really thought Grant was in a good position to win.

    Lastly, I really hope Sudeikis gets well soon. That was painful to watch.

    I think with O’Connor there was a flawed comparison made between him and Vanessa Kirby in the second season in the sense that they deliver one of the standout performances of the season and they have buzz but their chances are smaller than their co-stars.

    But I always felt that O’Connor’s performance was always bigger than Kirby’s. Diana was the talk of the town of this season but so was Charles to a great extent and O’Connor is a much bigger star at this point of his time on the show than Kirby was.

    I did so great in all categories that I can’t believe hahaha

    But, question: what was the last TV program to win 4 awards in a single ceremony? I can’t recall.

    I did some research:

    – The Sopranos won 4 awards in their first season (Series, Actor, Actress and Supporting Actress)

    – Alice won 4 awards in 1980 for 3rd/4th season (Series, Actress, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress), but in two of these wins, they were part of a tie.

    MINISERIES that won 4 awards:
    – Big Little Lies
    – John Adams
    – The Torn Birds

    Angels in America won 5.

    Interestingly, Thorn Birds lost program, writing, and directing at the Emmys.
    Sopranos lost directing and program, at least that season.
    Alice never won an Emmy.
