    I know last year the advertising was said to be minimal. It just seems like people are not that into it this year even on Gold Derby. They didn’t do their usual Emmy Episode Analysis like the did for each actor in the past.

     

    Not that many handicapping videos from the staff and if you look at the Gold Derby youtube page very few people watched most of the interviews.

    Some get tons of views and some like 20. It’s like people are only interested in a select few shows (Handmaid’s, Easttown, Queen’s Gambit maybe a few more.)

     

    The views on youtube are really odd. Pete Davidson got tons (perhaps people were curious about his mental state) and most shockingly William H. Macy got a lot, more than people in more popular shows. Maybe they thought he’d talk about his wife going to prison.

     

    Odd Emmy year.

    my opinion , I think the covid pandemic has really peeled back the luster of these award shows, and this is coming from someone who’s an award nerd.

    another reason the majority of shows nominated are kinda under the radar. Where are the Lost or Game of Thrones type of shows being nominated.

    also what’s the point of analyzing the reels if they technically do not count.

    I actually disagree with this, for sure the ratings will tank again as it does every year, but I feel like the interest for specific key audiences has been very good?
    I follow the Emmys a long time and i never had seen so many people talking about it on Social Media, and making predictions, and being more passionate about it year after year.

    I guess their usual demographic may be dying, but young people are discovering and that’s great for them.

    The Queen’s Gambit, WandaVision, Ted Lasso, Mare of Easttown, The Crown, The Mandalorian, Bridgerton…A large majority of people know/watched these shows.

    I’d actually argue the opposite. The pandemic has caused an acceleration of what was already happening with television series and box sets (most especially limited series) surging in zeitgeist presence thanks to the rise of streaming and films declining due to people being less enthusiastic about seeing films in movie theatres that aren’t based on existing popular ips.

    Case in point the Emmys had a small dip in ratings last year whilst the Oscars dramatically tanked. If you go on BAFTA’s YouTube page Paul Mescal, Michaela Coel and Aimee Lou Wood’s television awards acceptance speeches all have a lot more views than Frances McDormand, Daniel Kaluuya and Nomadland’s (something that wasn’t the case the year before with Joaquin Phoenix’s BAFTA wins having more views than Anthony Hopkins’).

    Oscars FYC:
    "THE POWER OF THE DOG" – IN ALL CATEGORIES
    "SPENCER" – In all categories especially Director (Pablo Larrain) and Actress (Kristen Stewart)
    "SHIVA BABY" – in all categories especially Picture, Adapted Screenplay, Score
    "TOGETHER" – Actress (Sharon Horgan), Actor (James McAvoy), Original Screenplay
    "FLEE" – IN ALL CATEGORIES
    "LAST NIGHT IN SOHO" – Director (Edgar Wright), S. Actress (Anya Taylor-Joy/Diana Rigg), Cinematography, Costume Design and Production Design

    The shows might be popular, but are they event type shows like The Sopranos,  ER, Dallas, Game of Thrones,  Lost.

    We don’t have that type of show in the lineup

    The Mandalorian and WandaVision might be the closest thing

    I think the shows mentioned by Couverture are today’s equivalent of those shows of the past mentioned by Frank2803.

    As for Newbie’s post, COVID-19 has put things into perspective for most. I just think awards shows are just not interesting to the public anymore. As for GoldDerby’s and other sites coverage of them, I would say while the nominees are deserving, they are still seen as an asterisk considering the year. Next year I think the coverage will be more exciting.

    I’d also say multiple popular shows targeting different demographics is better for maintaining interest than a single giant, which has been the case this year imo.

    I didn’t know that. Did the Oscars lose viewers as the night went on or start out low at the beginning. That was an awful show to sit thru. I was flipping to other channels.

    Being an event type show isn’t a thing anymore with the streaming cycle. Shows premiere, get popular, and end all too quickly. And in any case, it’s not like the masses of general audiences that watched GoT ever cared about watching the Emmys for the show. Mainstream basics dgaf about awards season. It’s different for shows that are both popular and have a devoted fan base, like Ted Lasso does now. Those shows are likelier to boost ratings for awards, if anything can.

    That’s a really good point in your first paragraph. I felt that way watching it and I always used to love award shows. I’d flip to news channels during the ceremony and you’d hear about covid out of control in Misssissippi and the finding of that body of the young Florida woman.

     

    It just made people getting excited over a statue seem trivial.
