I am curious why “The Boys In The Band” (2020) produced by Ryan Murphy and directed by Joe Mantello hasn’t received any awards buzz or nominations this season? It’s based on a popular play and has star power in its cast including Zachary Quinto, Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer and Andrew Rannells.
It has a 70 at Metacritic and 82% at Rotten Tomatoes. So what happened? Why has it been completely ignored so far? No nods at SAG or Globe!
I assume at this point Emmy nominations are unlikely? (wait, is it considered a TV movie or a theatrical film?)
It’s competing for film awards and its lack of buzz is due to the studio doing almost nothing to build up hype before release and completely abandoning it once it started streaming, even though it’s Ryan Murphy’s strongest project this year by far.
