Nicole Kidman will start shooting The Northman in november. This pretty much means Nine Perfect Strangers will be done shooting, I’m pretty sure it is coming this season.October 28, 2020 at 2:16 am #1203807269
Yeah, did I miss some big leak where everyone got to see Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom? If I’m not mistaken, the film has yet to premiere anywhere, so all these “Davis deserves the win this year” comments are kinda funny.
It’s just her usual stans thinking she is entitled to win everything every year. It was the same for TV so I’m not surprisedOctober 27, 2020 at 7:23 pm #1203806873
At the end of the day M&M remains a quickly made quarantine movie. Netflix bought it to surf on Zendaya’s popularity more than anything else, imo. It could come out in April for all we know.October 27, 2020 at 1:49 pm #1203806076
I’m glad I never left the Parasite train. The passion was there and sometimes the most deserving wins.
Regarding this season, Mank is not winning. They will never give BP to Netflix, especially not this year.October 27, 2020 at 1:38 pm #1203806057
One of the saddest things in GD forum history was a bunch of music stans coming in here and treating the acclaimed legendary actress Glenn Close like she was some pop diva getting in the way of Gaga’s award collection. They think winning an Oscar should be as easy as buying a Grammy.
The Glenn Close stans were way more annoying than Gaga stans (and they still are this year) but I see 2 years later y’all still aren’t ready for this conversation.October 27, 2020 at 7:09 am #1203805031
I don’t think you’re dismissing Taylor-Joy’s chances but to say Mescal’s nomination was widely predicted is false when people kept going on about how Mescal and Haas would get snubbed. Anyway I don’t think they’re comparable as The Queen’s Gambit is a completely different show tonally, in terms of cast recognition and in terms of budget and profile from Normal People and Unorthodox.
Paul Mescal was 6 in the combined odds, that’s why I consider he was widely predicted.
? TQG has a 100% on RT. It is at least on par with Unbelievable in terms of critical reception, even with a 79 v 83 on Metacritic… And I was specifically comparing it to Unbelievable and no other show because of the release date.
On RT Unbelievable has an average ratings of 8.6/10, while the average for TQG is 7.77/10. The % don’t show the full picture…
In other news the DailyMail says Hollywood s2 is currently being shot. Wouldn’t be the first time netflix starts shooting a show without officially announcing it https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8883337/Laura-Harrier-takes-break-filming-Hollywoods-second-season.htmlOctober 27, 2020 at 6:40 am #1203804984
This conversation reminded me when so many people were convinced Unorthodox and Normal People were non-starters at Emmys. TV critics twitter is flooding with TQG praise tweets.
I’m not dismissing TQG and ATJ chances at all, I’m just poiting out there might be some overreactions regarding how much critically acclaimed it is. Also I’m not sure Normal People is the type of example you want to use considering it ultimately won 0 emmys and wasn’t even nominated in Series. Paul Mescal’s nomination was widely predicted so no one was underestimating him, however NP doubters were right in saying the passion wasn’t big enough to get him the win, as it wasn’t enough to get Series nom.October 27, 2020 at 5:16 am #1203804867
I totally think The Queen’s Gambit can dominate the whole year. It has all of the acclaim (and more) of Unbelievable, without the discomfort and darkness. Like the Times review said, it is truly going back to the roots of prestige television, award shows will eat it up.
That’s not true. Unbelievable has a higher metascore and so do Unorthodox, Normal People, I May Destroy You or even Mrs America.
I’m not denying TQG winning chances but some of you are starting to over do it.October 26, 2020 at 3:20 pm #1203804085
If people still have doubts about Netflix’s insane upcoming campaign for Boseman… but continue thinking Hopkins is still locked.October 26, 2020 at 2:32 pm #1203803998
Killing Eve was obviously ahead of BCS, it was a total non factor this year.October 26, 2020 at 7:11 am #1203802985
They awarded Cox and Strong still managed to get the Emmy lol. Same for Comer.October 25, 2020 at 8:50 am #1203801408
Well I mean wasn’t Fleabag an Amazon acquisition. Same with A Very English Scandal.
Fleabag was picked up by Amazon while it was still filming https://www.vulture.com/2016/05/amazon-picks-up-british-import-fleabag-featuring-brett-gelman.html
And A Very English Scandal is produced by a Sony division and was also picked up during shooting https://deadline.com/2017/10/amazon-a-very-english-scandal-us-rights-hugh-grant-ben-whishaw-bbc-first-photo-1202180042/
making Amazon involved in both shows during production.October 25, 2020 at 8:17 am #1203801371
And Richard Madden recently won for Bodyguard, which was a full BBC production that Netflix just picked up international distribution after it already aired in the UK.
They were allegedly involved very early on in the production though
“The deal for Bodyguard, produced by World Productions, an ITV Studios company, was made through Netflix’s co-licensing team. The digital platform has been a partner since the show’s early production stages.
Under its co-licensing model, Netflix is collaborating with U.S. studios and international production companies on series that air on other linear or digital networks. Netflix takes first-run global distribution in as many territories as available, coming in as a partner on projects that are going to series at a finished script or pilot stage and as early as script development.”October 25, 2020 at 6:50 am #1203801257
Apologies if I missed this somewhere but why is We Are Who We Are in drama? I thought it was designed/promoted as a limited series? And vice versa for I May Destroy You, which I thought was not necessarily a limited series?
WAWWA is promoted as a drama by HBO. I May Destroy You is limited based on the recent comments by HBO executives.
