It’s gonna be hard to evaluate Cuoco’s chances, especially if she ends up losing. But she is more than likely in the top 2 this year, and we shouldn’t make the same mistake with did with Sandra Oh’s last year assuming that because she lost when she was frontrunner she wasn’t even in the conversation to happen with a stronger competition (which she did). Sure Cuoco is less respected than Oh, but she won’t go from #2 place at worst to like 15.
Smart will also always be in the running after this year, especially if she wins. She won’t suddenly disappear from the conversation.May 12, 2021 at 1:46 pm #1204252559
Fennell seems pretty safe to me everyone was talking about the crown to her at the Oscars. Doherty can get in if they don’t embrace Lovecraft Country or Bridgerton, don’t care about THT anymore and don’t go crazy over Pose. She is a possibility although I’m not predicting her at the moment.May 11, 2021 at 5:46 pm #1204251588
The Lord of the rings show is happening even if it’s mediocre. The record breaking production values and crafts will make it get the nom due to the likely massive tech branch support it will receive.May 11, 2021 at 3:55 pm #1204251432
A female lead show not doing great on IMDb is hardly surprising tho. On the TV Time app Girls5eva already has 3k followers in less than a week (PEN15 only has 17k in almost 2 years for example).May 11, 2021 at 8:32 am #1204250672
Sam Esmail was on newest episode of The Big Picture podcast and said both he and Emmy Rossum loved girls5eva.
I really think it has enough heat to be in the conversation. I didn’t see critics support a show like this in quite sometime. Hacks is getting 90s reviews but you don’t see them being excited about it like they are for Girls5eva. Of course that could change when it debuts, but that embargo has been lifted really quietly for something that acclaimed.May 10, 2021 at 12:18 pm #1204249488
Emily in Paris has its supporters (even the Critics Choice gave Ashley Park a nomination). I’m not saying that we should be scared but we should be cautious.
And it’s actually Netflix most viewed comedy, not Cobra Kai that’s mostly considered because of its popularity.
If voters pick up on Girls5Eva it could also help Ashley Park for Emily In Paris.May 10, 2021 at 8:37 am #1204249139

Just finished this. Overall it was fun, but it wasn’t really wowed by it. It has elements that work great (the songs’ lyrics are hilarious for example) and others not so much (like Dawn family in general, especially her brother). It also really looks like a NBC show, which I guess makes sense considering Peacock is an extension of it, but it could literally air on NBC as it is. But it’s not a bad thing either considering they mostly make good comedies and that are appreciated by awards.
My MVP was Renée Elise Goldsberry, she was pretty funny and her character was the most interesting to me. On the other hand, I sadly had some issues with Busy Phillips. She plays the typical dumb and clueless character that has already been done multiple times before and better. Just recently we had Annie Murphy’s emmy winning turn that did it way better.
I think it’s the type of show that can improve as it progresses so I’m definitely anticipating season 2. I hope it will have a nice showing at Emmys because it’s still one of the best offerings in the category this year. I would personally nominate it in Series and Renée.May 10, 2021 at 2:18 am #1204248894
https://thedirect.s3.amazonaws.com/media/photos/mandosemmys.jpg Who do you think will be nominated… Espiasto, Dawson & Burr are slots… Pascal can… And I hope Gina, Hamill and MorrisonMay 10, 2021 at 12:41 am #1204248847
I don’t think a Little Fires Everywhere would happen this year so no it’s not less competitive. An acclaimed HBO limited series starring Kate Winslet is not even in the top 5 at the moment in the combined odds.May 9, 2021 at 7:53 am #1204248146
The Queen’s Gambit is almost an one woman show, but it’s so big and actors love it so much that it might coattail another people other than Camp.
That’s why I’m also predicting Ingram. She in on The Tragedy Of Macbeth and was recently cast on a Star Wars show. She also opens and closes the show, kinda.May 9, 2021 at 5:37 am #1204247953
Sorry but why are people treating slavery like it’s a topic Hollywood won’t touch anymore? Just because a few twitter comments said they’re tired of it doesn’t mean Hollywood is. Just last year, Erivo got in at the Oscars for a so-so performance over the most critically-backed performance of the year in Lupita, just because the genre was more in their wheelhouse. I actually expect The Underground Railroad to have a broader appeal than I May Destroy You (a half-hour British show with an abnormal tone) and Small Axe (a niche British episodic period anthology) just because history has shown that this type of black story is what Hollywood tends to gravitate towards.
The debate here was about winning, which Erivo didn’t and no one is expecting IMDY and Small Axe to win so…
