    So this critically acclaimed movie form Sundance will air on HBO.

    Competition is so weak this year taht Laura Dern could win another Emmy.

    On HBO website is among upcoming movies with Paterno and Fahrenheit 451.

    Do you think HBO will release in time for this Emmy cycle?

    Hopefully, cause we need a decent lead actress winner.

    Jessica Biel would be more than decent winner! Fucking snobs everywhere!

    Movie is looking strong this year with Black Mirror, Paterno, The Tale, and Fahrenheit 451 all looking promising.

    Laura Dern is assured a nod.

    Said this in another thread:

    I doubt that they spent that much money, derailed its Oscar hopes and lauded its timeliness not to air it this year and not to make it a major Emmy player, so it has to air in the spring.

    Any word yet on a release date? HBO has updated their site with a page on The Tale, but only a synopsis and no premiere date yet other than “Coming soon”.

    If we don’t get a confirmation within the next few weeks, 4 weeks tops, it’ll probably be missing out on this Emmy cycle.

    This article explains why the producers went with HBO and not a theatrical film distributor (such as Amazon which almost bought it). One of the reasons is because the director wanted to plan an extensive outreach and educational campaign to go along with the release. For example, town hall/community/school screenings and panel discussions and Q&As to discuss sexual abuse prevention, and HBO was willing to put in the time and resources to organize that.

    But it seems to me that would take quite some time to organize the logistics of that w/r/t marketing and publicity costs, no?

    Maybe they can make it work for May. I hope so because the Limited field is wide open for Laura Dern and the film to win, whereas next year HBO will have Sharp Objects and who knows what else.

    Didn’t know all of that. Guess they’re going to premiere it later this year. Good but now that USA has officially announced another season of The Sinner means Biel will probably end up in drama categories and we’re gonna have the shittiest winner in leading actress category for miniseries ever. This is beyond hilarious!

    Movies with this kind of thematic material never do well theatrically nor are they awards magnets. TV is a lot kinder to niche programming these days and it can certainly get votes without people watching it.

    The timeline is becoming concerning, but they could still do all of those events in May and June, with a premiere in late May.  Three years ago, HBO announced Nightingale‘s May 29 premiere on March 18.

    HBO will come to the Emmys without a single powerful movie/limited series project? That would be shook!

    They have Fahrenheit 451 and Paterno regardless.

    That same May, Bessie came out, right? So they’re not opposed to having two movies in the same month.

    Yay, May 26th finally confirmed, which also confirms Laura Dern as our Emmy winner.  The other big takeaway is that this stars “Laura Dern & Elizabeth Debicki”, according to HBO.  I will be adjusting my predictions accordingly.
