Really wanted to vote for David Wilmot (Station Eleven), Billy Howle (Under the Banner of Heaven) and Stephen Fry (The Dropout), but they are nowhere to be found.

Titus Burgess would have won Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Tituss actually lost under the current system. He would have easily won multiple Emmys under the tape system.
Sandra Oh would have won in 2006 for season 2 of Grey’s Anatomy after she had just won both GG and SAG.May 14, 2022 at 2:34 pm #1204952065
The actor playing Dennis Rowe looked so familiar here. Looked him up on imdb and turns out he is Morgan Henard who used to be a user on this website!April 20, 2022 at 3:55 pm #1204925293
Kudrow gave one of the all time great performances (comedic or dramatic, of any medium) but damn it’s hard to argue against JLD and “Mother”.
Kudrow actually lost to JLD’s Election Night. Season 4 was arguably JLD’s weakest year in terms of overall work, but once again she had a killer submission. She always had one hell of a submission!April 20, 2022 at 1:39 am #1204924471
I never understood why Martha Plimpton never guest after her Emmy. Wonder if something happened behind scene.
She still guest-starred one last time in the season 4 finale after her Emmy win for the season 3 finale. I guess her work schedule on Raising Hope allowed her to only appear around the final episodes of the season. But she could have always been back since Raising Hope had been canceled two years before The Good Wife ended.
It would be fun to see Patti Nyholm on The Good Fight and of course as an expectant mother again.April 10, 2022 at 11:51 am #1204911297
Now watch Fiona Shaw getting the sole (acting) nomination for the show and enraging fans even more.November 11, 2021 at 6:10 pm #1204572948
Lizzy Caplan had already played Annie Wilkes in Castle Rock and now she’s doing this. Who’s the next iconic film villain she’s going to play in a TV show?October 3, 2021 at 2:17 am #1204499424

There had clearly been a build-up for that scene to finally happen, but when it did, it felt overdone and strangely unsatisfying for me, unlike a similar scene where Emily stabbed and kicked Aunt Lydia down the stairs, which was much more raw and powerful. But other than that, it was a very strong finale. Wondered why June didn’t try to negotiate to get Hannah, but of course they wouldn’t be willing to lose yet another child to Canada. Part of me thought that June would eventually go back to Gilead to take care of her unfinished business.
So now, will Joseph Fiennes have a better chance to get nominated after this episode?May 23, 2021 at 12:04 pm #1204267657
The episode never explores the psyche of that woman and why she could have decided to suddenly run away without her daughter without turning back (which she apparently did in the book, but it’s not featured in the show).
I don’t think Mabel intended to run away. She lost her mind after having to deal with her friend’s tragedy and kept walking away from the place where it had happened into the woods. Not until she was in the middle of a pond did she suddenly realize where she was and then try to walk her way back, but alas…..October 30, 2020 at 4:55 am #1203810955
The thing is Sunset Blvd, if finally made, could end up being worse than Hillbilly Elegy. The Broadway adaptation didn’t get good reviews to begin with and its musical film will inevitably be compared to the 1950 version that many consider to be a masterpiece. So HE could be Glenn’s last chance.
However, it would be marvelous to see an actress they overlooked for so long winning two Oscars in a short period of time, and in her 70s no less. But for that to happen, assuming she wins for HE as expected, Sunset Blvd needs to be a really strong film, maybe like a top-tier BP nominee. It has potential to do well at the box office, but it won’t likely be a critical darling.September 15, 2020 at 3:04 pm #1203708745
I dont know if Mirren has been nominated for a Tony or West End
She won Tony Award and Laurence Olivier Award for her performance as Queen Elizabeth II in The Audience. She’s the only actor who has completed both the American and British Triple Crowns of Acting.August 31, 2020 at 2:27 pm #1203678401
Glenn Close stars as Faye Dunaway during the time that she played Katharine Hepburn in a one-woman play called ‘Tea at Five’ in Boston before she was fired.
According to https://nypost.com/2019/07/24/faye-dunaway-fired-from-broadway-bound-tea-at-five/, scenes in the film should include:
– Her behavior was unsettling at an early photo shoot. Someone gave her a salad for lunch and she threw it on the floor. She was watching her weight and said the salad would be better on the floor than in her hand.
– She was frequently late for rehearsals, sometimes up to two hours. She refused to allow anyone to look at her during rehearsals, including the director and the playwright. Although she had the script for six months, sources claim she was never able to learn her lines. During the run of the play at Huntington she was fed lines and blocking through an earpiece. One source says, “98 percent of the play came through the earpiece.”
– While in rehearsal she left what one production source called “troubling, rambling, angry” voicemails to the creative team during the middle of the night. She also insisted that no one wear white to rehearsals because it “distracts me,” she said. When she was rehearsing on stage at the Huntington no one was allowed to move in the theater because that also distracted her.
– As she was rehearsing, she began to lose weight. She looked so emaciated that a production member called Dunaway’s former assistant for advice.
– Over the last weekend of June she had a full on “Mommie Dearest” meltdown and demanded that staffers at the Huntington Theater get down on their hands and knees and scrub the floor of her dressing room.
– She allegedly threw mirrors, combs and boxes of hairpins at the staff of the theater. She also pulled gray hairs out of her wig because she wanted to play a younger version of Hepburn than the playwright had written.
– The July 10 performance was canceled moments before curtain because Dunaway slapped and threw things at crew members who were trying to put on her wig. Enraged at the cancellation, Dunaway began “verbally abusing” the crew. They were “fearful for their safety.” The producer knew they had to fire her when they had to cancel the July 10 performance because she physically and verbally abused several production members.July 11, 2020 at 1:03 pm #1203581590
There are other narratives and trends that help someone win an Oscar on a regular basis. And Oscars seldom go to the right work/performances anyway. At least with the overdue narrative, it tends to go to the right person.Not now
