This is true but then again do the reviews of critics matter? In this thread we’ve seen people say we’re underestimating Ratched and Hollywood (both shows which have been panned) but saying to call The Undoing likely to get nominated an overestimation (even though its reviews are actually just ok). Whilst IMDY has a tonne of critical acclaim it doesn’t mean it automatically will win everything. After all it’s not even the most acclaimed Limited Series of the year.
Even though that wasn’t my point, I’d say they do matter to an extent yes. Why do you think The Undoing isn’t regarded as strong of a contender as we thought earlier, or why Hollywood missed series in the end at the Emmys? Wouldn’t Ratched be much safer for a series nom at the Globes and the Emmys with better reviews? Much of IMDY’s buzz was initially driven by its acclaim as well.
Critical reception does directly and indirectly drive the conversation and buzz many times and is considered when predicting things. Even if it is one of many factors, in the long run, it does matter somewhat.
My initial point was that TQG’s reviews aren’t to the level to center that buzz or conversation around. Didn’t mean it didn’t matter or was irrelevant.October 27, 2020 at 5:41 am #1203804886
I think considering how relatively badly two other big new contenders like Fargo and The Undoing fared with critics, seeing The Queen’s Gambit’s good reception is refereshing I guess but it’s not that acclaimed to make it undeniable or anything.
It isn’t anywhere near as acclaimed as any of the shows mentioned by hopelessstar, whether you go by metascore or the RT avg rating. I also doubt it will be big in the critic’s year end lists and I’m quite certain all the eligible shows mentioned will outdo it in that department.
Its reviews are good enough to make it a viable candidate but they aren’t strong enough to center the conversation around it or make it a talking point, like with some other shows for example.October 25, 2020 at 12:20 pm #1203801744
Very intrigued by Morgan’s apparent shift in narrative direction here. He was NOT sympathetic to Diana at all in either The Audience or The Queen.
I’d say he was as sympathetic with Diana as he could be considering who the POVs were in both of those stories. I was hoping that they don’t present Diana as the angel she was made out to be but I guess that’s not happening seeing all the little tidbits and reactions.October 20, 2020 at 11:28 am #1203791556
Really? I would say that’s a stretch since most of the reviews I’ve read about him have been mixed.
It is. Literally the first review that pops up on Google says Gleeson struggles to encapsulate Trump in it. Him having one of the most acclaimed performance of this current Emmy cycle, let alone the past 12 months is a big reach.October 18, 2020 at 9:39 am #1203786015
Obviously that doesn’t mean her awards chances are boosted or anything but it shows that there is a TONNE of hype for the performance
Agreed. Considering how new she is, I was surprised to find multiple fanpages of hers on social media recently. She was also the biggest talking point about the trailer among both press and fans. Hopefully she lives up to all the hype.October 18, 2020 at 8:47 am #1203785864
These posters are ugly af.October 17, 2020 at 3:44 pm #1203784832
It’s my opinion.
You’ll find people on here that make the point of such threads pretty useless so I usually try not to venture here. Like I can never understand the objective of coming to just disagree with an unpopular opinion, state an obviously much more commonly shared one and not add anything even remotely relevant or substantial to it as was just done. Seems so silly honestly.October 15, 2020 at 12:32 am #1203779936
Everything doesn’t have to be a Paul Thomas Anderson/Christopher Nolan/David Fincher high brow arthouse kind of film.
Plss those two are big mainstream directors. Their critical and award success doesn’t make them niche.
The trailer was simply trying too hard so it came across as tacky. Glenn does seem well positioned for a win though as I doubt the actual film is that bad.October 14, 2020 at 11:35 pm #1203779888
Sue me but she was better in Hotel 🙄October 13, 2020 at 7:30 am #1203775557
The Crown stans were claiming it was coming to sweep before s3 got released (I can see still the comments claiming Olivia Colman would be the first person to ultra sweep lmao) and we saw how that turned out. I see the cockiness is still present despite the very recent underperformance.
Agreed. I love The Crown and I’m really hyped for the coming season but I don’t want to see it get overhyped to the extent that they get dragged like last year because it didn’t turn out to be the kind of juggernaut/undeniable phenomenon so many on this site were claiming it was going to be. It’s all just so similar to what people were saying before S3 premiered so the stans need to cool it down a little. We’ve been here before and it didn’t turn out well.October 12, 2020 at 1:21 am #1203772471
Also she got snubbed at BAFTA for The Crown this year because there are 4 slots and BAFTA doesn’t like awarding The Crown above the line outside Kirby.
The Crown has eight acting nominations across three seasons and both of those things were true for all of these nominees as well. Even if the BAFTAs don’t like to award the cast, they certainly don’t seem to have a problem nominating them. The extremely hyped lead missing was still somewhat surprising.
Anyway, Idk why that other user even brought it up considering TV and Film BAFTAs are two very different things.
