i mean, what meghann fahy does in THAT scene in twl finale should be taught in schools, the way she conveyed a million emotions in just one look is top notch. girlfriend is clearly not winning but lucky will be nominated, at least.May 25, 2023 at 12:30 pm #1205441163
Lol, I love Lupe but not only is she not happening, she also isn’t nearly as good as Fahy in TWL or as prominent of a character. Smith-Cameron will be the only supporting actress from Succession to get in there.
and i argue that even her is happening only because of succession’s love and her past nomination… gerri is cute and all but in this season the material is simply just not there.May 24, 2023 at 4:43 am #1205439576
in an ideal world, sza would’ve win the big ones in a cakewalk.ReplyMay 24, 2023 at 4:41 am #1205439574
Anyways… I’m looking for insight. I’ve followed the Grammys for several years now and I have a pretty thorough understanding of how they work (procedures, trends, eligibility periods, etc.). What I don’t understand is why they work that way. Specifically, the omission of indie music. Just like they aggregate critics’ top 10 album lists, Metacritic does the same for film and television. But what’s striking is that the top ten overall in both of those screen media almost always end up receiving an Oscar or Emmy nom, and if something doesn’t it’s usually only one or two of the ten; the same can’t be said for music. In fact, it’s often the inverse: only one or two from the top ten eventually receive Grammy recognition. It’s just so confusing to me why there would be such a disconnect between critics and the industry on what is the best. My whole life I’ve kinda only listened to Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 and Billboard 200 Top 10 (and Grammys, AMAs, VMAs, etc., of course), so I assumed it was because it was inaccessible. But I’ve been driving a lot the last few weeks and listened to some critically acclaimed albums by AAPI artists in the car to commemorate the month, and that’s clearly not the case. I mean Sawayama (so good btw) is literally just like Sour with the Y2K sensibilities and basic pop characteristics (hooks, digestible choruses, repetition). A snippet from Be the Cowboy literally became a viral TikTok sound. Jubilee is super joyful. I’m obviously missing something. I assume none of you read this in full lol but if you did any and all discourse would be beneficial.
thanks for sharing. i do agree, there’s a tremendous dissonance between overall critically acclaimed music projects and and what end up in big 4 grammy categories. grammys do not go for the snob appeal like the other EGOT awards, they rather like bland but succesful pop music. for example: sometimes we get wins like come away with me, miseducation of lauryn hill and jagged little pill in aoty but they were very successful depite the huge acclaim.ReplyMay 8, 2023 at 4:14 am #1205423528
I just realised how much of a pun this is lol.

Sophie Nelissee ate her competition in lead actress in this episode and if she won’t be nominated i’ll be angry like ozark’s tom pelphrey snub.April 25, 2023 at 9:53 am #1205409926
Snook is not winning over Coolidge, in any placement imo. It does not matter if the best performance isn’t there jennifer will win regardless because the industry love her, like jayme lee curtis winning the oscar this year.April 25, 2023 at 4:47 am #1205409586
Although there’s final season narrative i don’t buy succy winning acting awards like the crown or schitt’s creek. I mean, guest categories are really not hapenning and i’m effy about lead actress and supporting actor. But the passion is there for sure. On a separate note, unpopular opinion but i feel like theo james and will sharpe are more likely to happen in supporting actor then, let’s say, michael imperiolli and tom hollander, abraham is a legend and i think he’s safe regardless.April 17, 2023 at 4:50 am #1205393268
Samara Joy didn’t sell like Adele.
but samara is jazz, jazz dont need hits to win here (hello esperanza spalding) raye is pop and pop only win this category with comercial success.ReplyApril 11, 2023 at 1:27 pm #1205386240
even so, i gots to say that sarah snook served a brilliant emmy tape in last episode. she is a terrific actress and deserves awards for this!April 11, 2023 at 1:25 pm #1205386235
i’m in a position where i just watch people all over me falling in love with succession and hyping it up to the sky and i’m in my corner being a fan of shows like ozark, severance and yellowjackets. succession will sweep the emmys and all i can say is “you go girl” because you know, it’s not underserving at all. but it’s definetely NOT my cup of tea.April 10, 2023 at 5:26 pm #1205385090
No but some moves are being considered by networks or the actor’s team . Btw am I the only one who thinks Rhea will miss in lead?
i mean it took her ages to be nominated in supporting so yeah she is much more fragile in lead… but she has the last season narrative to grab on if voters shower better call saul with multiple nominations.April 10, 2023 at 5:24 pm #1205385086
melanie lynskey killed last episode in THAT scene, love her so muco. ellijah wood is also suberb,and i hope he has more things to do. they better be nominated!!April 10, 2023 at 3:22 pm #1205384953
darlings, all i need is sza being the most nominated artist! give her aoty, soty, roty, video, pop solo, r&b song, r&b performance, traditional r&b e progressive r&b album noms!!April 10, 2023 at 3:21 pm #1205384949
t, she might be able to pull a Japanese Breakfast, but artists that got into BNA like Japanese Breakfast, Phoebe Bridgers, Courtney Barnett, HAIM, Maggie Rogers, all had a rock or folk vibe to them. I think a comparison to Charli XCX is almost fair though she’s a more “mature” artist, but maybe closer to how people like Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Bjork were treated in t
unlike charli, caroline produce her own music which might be enough for to break it in alternative categories… but it’s helpless anyway cause boygenius is for sure winning them. but if girlfriend in pop she is not happening, even in a barren category.Not now
