Driver. Not only does he give the more intense performance, he manages to do so without having to rely on personal experience. In real life, he has never gone through a divorce, while Johannson has done so twice.
This is really unfair, is acting not always a bit of calling on past life experiences? And has Driver never been in a romantic relationship before?December 13, 2019 at 3:51 pm #1203235342
The only thing that really bugged me was how Claire exaggerates her relationship with Yanko. He is not married or in an another relationship and he is only the weather guy, why is she fearing like she’s having an affair with the president.
I think she just knows the stigma against a young woman early in her career sleeping with an established man and how that is perceived. I feel like it’s pretty normal for her to feel embarrassed, even though it’s unfortunate.December 13, 2019 at 2:54 pm #1203235288
Is it weird to like every single performance on this show except Witherspoon and Carrel? Powley and Carbonell were great this week.
EDIT: that being said, this should probably be Carrel’s tape?December 12, 2019 at 12:31 pm #1203233979
I hope someone makes a Natalie-like comment at the Globes again this year, if the HFPA continues to refuse inclusivity for no reason other than they like their white celebrities I hope those celebrities embarrass them right back.December 11, 2019 at 8:57 pm #1203232897
Notice that I said multiple major nominations, as in Top 8. Gerwig won’t get Picture, Director, Actress or Supporting Actress nominations: only Screenplay. Harriet will only get a Best Actress nomination maximum, and Hustlers will get Supporting Actress at maximum. The others will be shut out. Wang’s film is the only one that still has the potential to max out. I think all 5 of those nominees are possible, but unlikely.
well maybe that’s also the problem? Little Women and The Farewell are two of the most acclaimed movies of the year, and 100% more supported than Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Ford v. Ferrari, Bombshell, and on par with everything in the top 5 besides maybe Parasite and The Irishman. I understand critical acclaim does not equal awards recognition, but quite frankly if females are making movies of this caliber I don’t quite see why they aren’t in the conversation more.December 11, 2019 at 6:09 pm #1203232697
Currently (this is excluding the smaller guilds which is probably a large oversight)
Watchmen- Critics Choice, WGA
Stranger Things- SAG
Succession- Critics Choice, WGA, Golden Globes
Handmaids- WGA, SAG
BLL- GG, SAG (but SAG underperformance)
Morning Show- GG, SAG over performance w/o Ensemble
The Crown- GG, SAG, WGA, Critics Choice
I can’t tell how there’s any sense of whats doing the second best besides The Crown. Handmaids has hit both guilds but lost critical support and won’t have visibility from the second biggest awards show of the year. Succession/Watchmen has writers and critics (which isn’t shocking) but only the former can get a real visibility boost with the Globes. BLL is in trouble if it can’t get Kidman/Meryl in at SAG nor anything at WGA, but then again how could the Morning Show get Crudup/Carrel but not an ensemble nom over Stranger Things? and Stranger Things looked done but then it came back right as it needed to today? Handmaids has the most guild crossover which means the most academy voters, but will it win anything?
Point being, The Crown doesn’t seem to have any threat for series at all, even with a somewhat underwhelming reception.December 11, 2019 at 5:51 pm #1203232668
Bruh, they got 10 (TEN!!) actors nominated at the Emmys,
which has been proven to be largely because the Academy didn’t love the new shows and most of the old favorites were ineligible. If the actors were actually that passionate about GOT they would have nominated Clarke or Headey and probably Harrington as well at SAG when the show was facing competition from other actual heavyweights. Look at the five ensemble nominees, none of them besides GOT were eligible at the last Emmys.December 11, 2019 at 10:55 am #1203231892
It’ll get the nominations it got last year and at least one acting nom, I’m pretty sure of that… but that’s not the showing I would hope for. It would be great to see it get a buzz boost from a CC or GG win.December 11, 2019 at 10:48 am #1203231872
Just had to take out The Farewell in Picture to make room for Joker…December 11, 2019 at 10:43 am #1203231862
So I said before SAGs that there could be 2 spots open. Well looks like 3. I wouldnt mind a kidman nom, I thought she was best in cast in limited screentime. Doubt it ends up happening though. Dern is gonna sweep this field so hard.
Is Robbie not also fairly safe with Lopez and Dern?
I’m taking these Little Women snubs as HFPA just having weird taste and SAG not paying enough attention to it- so I’m keeping Pugh in but I’m not confident about that. I feel like Shuzen’s road might be over :(. For #5 I guess I’ll say Bates?December 11, 2019 at 8:43 am #1203231427
I wonder who will win Drama Actor. I thought Menzies had it on lock. Can Brown prevail with his show snubbed in Ensemble? The Morning Show guys can split votes leading the path to a David Harbour victory… which may finally put him in a very good spot for that very well deserved Emmy. His show also got into Ensemble so more points for him!
i was thinking Harbour could do it but I don’t trust SAG enough to not rehash the past and award Sterling againDecember 10, 2019 at 10:07 pm #1203230160
I have not finished this season and while I have still found Colman enjoyable and emmy-worthy if not undeniable, I knew there was something left to be desired. I haven’t watched the Foy seasons in over a year and I wondered if I was overhyping it in my head, so I went back to check. Just as a reminder.
The issue lies less with Colman herself, and more in the fact that Foy gave the performance of the decade.December 10, 2019 at 2:40 pm #1203229682
Mine are gonna be bad but yolo!
whos more likely, Dever or Collete? Colletes the obvious namecheck but we have reason to believe people watched the show so I wanna say Dever. Or will SAG be sheepish and do a Mirren name-check?December 10, 2019 at 7:20 am #1203228790
I’ve said this before here- broadcast TV and prestige tv are two different entities. We tend to think that nobody is watching these shows but that’s because of our bubble of tv snobs. NBC’s New Amsterdam has ratings much higher than HBO’s Big Little Lies. It is like comparing Fox Searchlight to Marvel, one is in the business of making awards players, and the other makes shows that will appeal to the masses. These broadcast shows aren’t looking to appeal to the tv snobs of the world, but the fly-over state tv viewers who are still watching a good simple/digestible procedural or sitcom.
