Guest Actors will have more screentime in their submissions than her sksksksk. Mess.August 5, 2020 at 6:00 am #1203627520
It’s like asking why a show like Fleabag didn’t get a Comedy Half Hour Sound Mixing nomination last year. It’s ridiculous, because what Sound Mixing heavy work could possibly be nominated for a show like Fleabag? What lack of support could a miss in Sound Mixing possibly prove for Fleabag?
Funny you mention this because Fleabag not only managed to get nominated but win (ugh) the corresponding guild award for sound mixing. I’m pretty certain given some more time with the Emmys, it would have been nominated there as well so…August 4, 2020 at 11:10 am #1203626383
I’m cautious about Watchmen overcoming a vote-split in directing. Writers are savvier than directors. Veep S5, People vs OJ Simpson and Game of Thrones S8 all had triple nominations in directing. All were predicted to win and all lost, despite winning their series races. GoT even managed to win the casting award largely based on its strength with directors I’m assuming.
The race is further complicated by the fact that the ‘standout’ Watchmen episode was already bested by another episode (the premiere) at DGA. The consensus that exists among us might not exist within the industry, even when factoring in the current socio-political environment.August 3, 2020 at 12:52 pm #1203624427
There’s a lot more to his performance than that, and even his breakdowns aren’t these huge “I’M ACTING” moments.
I never claimed it was but it seems anything and everything that isn’t extremely showy is labelled as subtle these days, probably to give more credibility to that performance. There is a middle ground between those two which is largely ignored.August 3, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203624376
Following on from your comment about Foy I really miss her so much! Had The Crown just kept the old cast and aged them up she probably would be winning this in a whirlwind.
Foy would have ENDED this competition with good enough material. I mean she really did that in just two seasons whew.August 3, 2020 at 12:42 pm #1203624351
How is having constant nervous breakdowns subtle?August 3, 2020 at 12:30 pm #1203624254
I’ve seen more people trash Colman than praise her here. Multiple people on these forums have made it clear numerous times how much they hate her performance. And I’ve not seen much support for her in fan circles (it’s still very much about Foy as it should be lol) or with publications after the show had been released for a while. The overall talk has been very muted surrounding Colman. Some love to exaggerate things on these forums as always (see the comment about Newton a page or so ago).August 2, 2020 at 6:44 am #1203621863
Because she’s good in the role? I haven’t yet completed this season but I always preferred Wiley to Dowd. It’s not hard to imagine others did as well. As for Strahovski, it is clear the academy never took to her the way the fans did. This year has been extremely unusual in so many ways that anything can happen in categories as open as these. I mean would anyone have guessed that Esposito would be the only acting nominee from BCS even a week ago?
