I’m starting to doubt Lil Nas X getting into Pop Solo. He’s not a singer, the category has no history of nominating “non-vocalists” (I consider him to be a melodic rapper), Pop Solo is always super competitive and even though his single hit #1, I think it peaked too early and is on the decline.
Rappers have been able to get into Pop Duo, but not Pop Solo. With the likes of so many pop favorites returning, I just can’t see Lil Nas X making the category.May 13, 2021 at 9:40 am #1204253559
Just recently caught up with This is Us. I think Griffin Dunne is win competitive for Guest Actor in a Drama Series with the episode “One Small Step…”May 13, 2021 at 9:36 am #1204253550
How likely within the realms of possibility is it that voters don’t see In Treatment on time and it gets shut out almost completely (outside maybe Aduba)?
I just can’t see voters (or viewers) excited or wanting to watch this. Like… who asked for this? I can see voters actually avoiding this show.
I like the actors involved, but after the last year and a half, what made HBO think people wanted to watch therapy sessions?
I feel like it was only made because HBO realized it would be an easy and cheap COVID-safe series to produce.May 12, 2021 at 1:19 pm #1204252496
With all seriousness I do think we should watch out for it next year in something like Writing because Paramount+ might attract it more eyeballs due to the fact they’ll be streaming some of this year’s tentpoles (House of Gucci, Mission Impossible) for those who still find it unsafe to see them in movie theatres. They also are apparently exclusively streaming the Dexter revival after it airs on Showtime if I’m not mistaken.
I hope so… at the very least I hope being on Paramount+ gives The Good Fight a shot at a couple nominations in general… even if they aren’t major ones.
Hopefully a Guest Actor nom for Delroy Lindo!May 11, 2021 at 12:44 pm #1204251012
Yeah… I wouldn’t get my hopes up for The Crown scoring any Guest acting noms.
Over the last 3 seasons, the show has scored exactly 1 guest nom (for Matthew Goode).
I would personally nominate Charles Dance from this season, but that’s it.
But don’t worry Crown fans, because the main cast will deservingly clean up in nominations in the main acting categories.May 11, 2021 at 12:31 pm #1204250983
I think this Limited Series Revival is a great idea!
Yes, Ally McBeal was of it’s time, but there’s no reason why it wouldn’t work today with the characters changing with the times and mixing in some new younger cast members to interact with the original cast.
Who wouldn’t want to see the likes of Calista Flockhart, Lucy Liu, Jane Krakowski, Portia de Rossi, Greg Germman and Peter MacNicol reunited in a new series! Plus new tunes by Vonda Shepard.
Bonus points if they can get Robert Downey, Jr to reprise his role and have cameos by the likes of Regina Hall, Tracey Ullman, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Julianne Nicholson, James Marsden and Hayden Panettiere!May 11, 2021 at 9:47 am #1204250778
This was such a delightful and moving coming of age story. Visually masterful and it felt quite poetically written.
The real eye catching elements here though were the performances for me. The ensemble was quite a good one and Jack Dylan Grazer and Chloe Sevigny were very good but Jordan Kristine Seamon was something else completely.
And in such a weak Emmy year, this should be recognized, but it unfortunately won’t be.
Slightly holding out a little hope for maybe a Directing nom for Luca, but even that seems farfetched.May 11, 2021 at 9:42 am #1204250773
I think that if Girls5eva happens, it will be just Series + Writing/Directing + Guest for Tina Fey. I haven’t watched it, but it looks like an ensemble work rather than a vehicle for someone in the cast like Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is a vehicle for Jane Levy.
I disagree. If Emmy voters watch Girls5eva, at least some of the cast will be recognized. They are too high-profile to be ignored and this is a weak year.May 10, 2021 at 2:18 pm #1204249743
More than likely, neither Cobra Kai nor Emily in Paris will be nominated.
Netflix will at most have 2 Comedy Series nominations (like last year). Those are likely to be The Kominsky Method and Master of None.May 8, 2021 at 3:38 pm #1204247258
Atlanta was truly at its peak that year and it couldn’t even repeat in Actor, even with the Teddy Perkins episode. I don’t see it being win competitive for series with strong competition.
I disagree. I think the demand / buzz is high for a new season of Atlanta and more people have “discovered” it during its hiatus.
It helps that the cast is highly in-demand and honored:
Donald Glover – Top Grammy winner
Brian Tyree Henry – about to be Marvel star
LaKeith Stanfield – Just Oscar nominated
Zazie Beetz – in top films like Joker, Deadpool 2 and upcoming Bullet Train with Brad Pitt.
As long as it keeps up with the quality and has the critics backing it, I think it could be win-competitive.May 8, 2021 at 1:29 pm #1204247099
Not to hate on P!nk, but her career is moving towards that place where she reaches “veteran status” and no longer has hit records.
That new single of hers would have to be a Top 10 hit in order for her to get into the competitive Pop Solo category and I just don’t see that happening.May 7, 2021 at 8:19 am #1204245814
Watched the entire series in a day (only 8 episodes) and loved it!
I can’t get the theme song out of my head, so that’s definitely a contender for the Main Title Theme Emmy… along with all the other songs from the show that should compete in Music & Lyrics.
The whole cast is great and I would be happy to see everyone nominated in this weak Emmy year for Comedy.
I too love Renee the most… do we know for sure that she will be competing in Lead Actress?? I feel like she would be a winner if she submits supporting and the show kinda makes it seem like Sara is the Lead and the rest of the girls are supporting. Either way, would love to see all 4 nominated.
Tina Fey could possibly win the Guest Actress Emmy as Dolly Parton… like, what a laugh out loud WTF role! Also, Vanessa Williams would make for a likely nominee.
Stephen Colbert should be nominated for Guest Actor as a “Max Martin” type Pop music producer. Would love to see Dean Winters and Andrew Rannells considered for nominations as well!May 5, 2021 at 10:57 am #1204243647
No men will or should be honored from the cast of The Flight Attendant.
Having said that, Michael Huisman is a good actor who has been solid in a lot of great series (Game of Thrones, The Haunting of Hill House, Orphan Black, Treme) and I wouldn’t be mad if he finally scored an Emmy nom.
T.R. Knight’s character felt like a guest actor in a drama series, so I can’t understand how anyone would think he would have a chance in Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Did he make any of y’all laugh or even smile once with his performance??May 4, 2021 at 1:56 pm #1204242567
At this point (based on a popular vote by all members of the Recording Academy):
– 2 Country #1 hits + both Top 40
– #1 hit, 2nd Top 10 hit
– Multiple Top 40 hits
– Oscar nominated soul singer
The Kid KAROI
– Latest hit will reach Top 10 next week
– Breakout pop singer but might need 2nd hit to make it
– UK R&B critically acclaimed artist, BRIT Award nominee
– New Elton John duet, visibility increasing, should have been nom’d last year
– 1st major Black Country male since Darius Rucker and has LOTS of country music industry support
– If she releases new material could be considered since snubbed last year.
– #1 hit carried by streaming, but I question whether enough voters listen or know who this is.
I don’t see the likes of Ava Max or Conan Gray happening without recent major (enough) success.May 4, 2021 at 1:40 pm #1204242535
Am I the only one who doesn’t think Hahn is happening? Like…at all? Also, I still don’t buy her getting in, if Olsen gets snubbed.
In general there are so many award-worthy and Emmy caliber miniseries and performances this year that I doubt there is room for a Marvel series to be taken seriously.
I mean it could happen, but it’s hard to imagine Emmy voters going for comic book material with comedic elements when The Queen’s Gambit, Small Axe, I May Destroy You, The Underground Railroad, Mare of Easttown, It’s A Sin, The Good Lord Bird, Fargo and Genius: Aretha are all there contending.
