I wouldn’t be mad if Gerald McRaney took home the Emmy for Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his appearance in “The Train.” What a brilliant, moving performance in such a short amount of time!
Also, I’m curious if NBC will go all in with only one submission in Writing & Directing, presumably the series finale, or will they submit multiple entries? If the later, “The Train” has a strong chance in Writing.May 18, 2022 at 7:56 am #1204955515
This is Us had an FYC Awards Screening last night of this week’s episode “The Train”.
The episode will likely result in 2 nominations for Guest Actor in a Drama Series. Potentially a nomination in writing/directing if submitted.May 15, 2022 at 3:59 pm #1204953030
Context and intention are everything.
I agree with the LA Times:
“The song’s mis-genderings and slurs are startling but certainly intentional for their effect; Lamar is one of the most detailed, precise and challenging lyricists in all of music today.
Cruel gestures like deadnaming (using a trans person’s name from before they transitioned) and repeating slurs over and over would be unforgivable in conversation. But the song’s provocations feel like a wincing look back on the young mind set Lamar inhabited on tracks like 2012’s “Backseat Freestyle,” a fan favorite for its evil strut, but a character study of a naive young man in the throes of foolish influences.
On “Auntie Diaries,” a younger Lamar tries to make sense of his affection for and fascination with the trans relatives around him, while navigating and absorbing the slights and violence he sees around them. “See, my auntie is a man now, slight bravado / Scratching the likes from lotto / Hoping that she pull up tomorrow.”
In the wake of Dave Chappelle’s “The Closer” controversy, around the comedian’s transphobic language, this high wire act could easily have backfired for Lamar. While trans fans are going to have different reactions informed by their wide variety of lived experience, some have said they’re grateful for Lamar’s candor and the delicacy with which he uses hateful phrasing to compassionate ends.
“Like it or not the use of the f— slur, dead naming and misgendering is reality. I’m sorry he didn’t sugarcoat it for y’all but it’s realistic as personally I get dead named and misgendered by family to this day,” wrote one trans female fan on Twitter. “This song may not be some of y’all’s ideal version of allyship and activism but it’s done in a way that holds truth and weight to the transphobia and homophobia in hip-hop. We should be grateful one of the most remarkable rappers alive chose to bring up this topic.”
“A lot of ppl have problems with Kendrick’s use of the f-slur here but it’s important to remember the narrative frame the song uses,” wrote another trans fan. “This becomes incredibly relevant at the apex of the song…I’ve looked over these lyrics countless times it’s very clear that everything in this song is deliberate. It’s an in your face re-telling of the events that lead a previously ignorant Kendrick Lamar to become understanding of LGBTQIA+ people & provoked him to fight for them.”
By the song’s close, the language reflects his understanding, ending with Lamar in church giving a full-bodied attestation of love and humility in the face of someone’s deepest truths about themselves.
“Forcing me to stand now I said, ‘Mr. Preacherman, should we love thy neighbor?” he says. “The laws of the land or the heart, what’s greater?’”May 14, 2022 at 8:33 am #1204951866
We have a new (and likely) potential nominee this week for Guest Actress in a Comedy Series:
Quinta Brunson – A Black Lady Sketch ShowMay 14, 2022 at 8:29 am #1204951861
I love that 5 out of 6 of those critics put Christine Baranski on their list. Does she (finally) have enough goodwill to surprise with a nomination?
She did randomly score a Golden Globe nom (although those awards didn’t really mean much this year I suppose).
Still… in the name of Paramount+ I will not get my hopes up.May 11, 2022 at 8:14 pm #1204949512

I had the Gold Derby slugfest on earlier and both Joyce and Christopher moved Moore into their predictions.
On Moore, if we’re discussing her prospects, is Metz at all a possibility? (please keep in mind I am waiting for it to arrive in one drop on streaming here so I’ve only seen clips).
Definitely. She has many tapes.May 11, 2022 at 8:38 am #1204948975
And the Emmy goes to… Mandy Moore.May 11, 2022 at 8:36 am #1204948972https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-1&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfX0%3D&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1524390663378321408&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.goldderby.com%2Fforum%2Ftv%2Fp-valley-on-starz%2F&sessionId=abfe61665cc8ff9311aa53088d854940747df5e6&siteScreenName=GoldDerby&theme=light&widgetsVersion=c8fe9736dd6fb%3A1649830956492&width=550px
I’m ready for Season 2!May 9, 2022 at 7:25 am #1204946983
Sad for the Katrina Lenk snub for Company. I thought she was great, but I do agree that it’s probably more bc of the role that she wasn’t nominated.
I never understood why Claybourne Elder was in Goldderby’s Top 5. He most certainly would not have been my 2nd, 3rd or 4th choice for featured actor from Company. Hope Matt Doyle wins now!
Meanwhile, so happy for Jennifer Simard’s nomination!!! I had never heard of her before I saw the show and left it being blown away by her comedic performance. Of course Patti was amazing and will go on to win.
Happy for Six’s noms. Too bad one of the actresses couldn’t sneak in, but it would have been impossible to choose who to single out.
The Music Man was boring, so I’m glad it’s noms were limited. Surprised they snubbed Jefferson Mays, but honestly it wasn’t a role where he shined. I would have left out Jayne as well, who was perfectly fine, but it’s a short role.
How did Paradise Square get so many nominations? I was under the impression that it was poorly reviewed. Is that wrong?May 7, 2022 at 3:44 pm #1204945593
I’m not really seeing a scenario with multiple repeat winners. Maybe one or two… the most likely being Jason Sudakis and Jean Smart.
I do think Smart has competition from Quinta Brunson, Sarah Lancashire and Kaley Cuoco… maybe even Sandra Oh if Netflix pushes her.
The Television Academy might also throw Black-ish a major win in its final season via either Anthony Anderson or Tracee Ellis Ross.
Comedy Series & Supporting Actress could easily go to Hacks instead of Ted Lasso.
Supporting Actor could go to past Emmy favorite David Hyde Pierce or Brian Tyree Henry.May 3, 2022 at 9:35 pm #1204941395
Gaga is not winning the Oscar for “Hold My Hand.” The song needed to at least be as good as “Shallow” or “Take My Breath Away” in order for her to win again so soon and it is not.
She delivers an amazing vocal on the song, but the song itself is pretty basic and uninspired. Hope she at least can get a nom though.May 1, 2022 at 7:40 am #1204938740
Okay, the Ozark finale was nowhere near as bad as Killing Eve’s. I was personally satisfied with it. I think what goes down is realistic and what would happen in real life. I too was upset with what happens to a certain character, but I can’t say I didn’t see that coming.
Overall, this last season was fine, but not amazing. It will not be winning Drama Series.
Julia Garner could definitely win a 3rd Emmy. I don’t see any other actor from this show winning otherwise.
I know Laura Linney has her fans on this forum. She was amazing as Wendy, but my God does she play one of the most annoying and unlikable characters on television! I felt like the writers tried to give her more vulnerable moments in the finale, which I appreciated. I personally do not see her winning the Emmy… I guess it might depend on who is ultimately nominated.
Jason Bateman gave a great, subtle performance this last half, working well off of Laura’s dominating character. Probably too subtle for the Emmys.April 28, 2022 at 4:47 pm #1204936260
I kinda hope they ignore the Succession men in Guest Actor in a Drama Series. I’d hate for their names to just be checked off because of the show. They were fine, but nothing amazing. My favorite Guest Actor from that show, Justin Kirk, is not likely to be nominated.
Top 3 favorite Guest Actor in a Drama Series contenders:
* Michael Mando – Better Call Saul
* Delroy Lindo – The Good Fight
* Colman Domingo – EuphoriaApril 28, 2022 at 4:39 pm #1204936249
It’s obviously so hard to predict this far out in advance when so much new music is on the horizon… and not all of it known yet.
I don’t think the General Field will be as simple as Adele vs Silk Sonic. Yes, the Grammys love both, but both have been awarded PLENTY in the past. Adele’s album has not had the legs it might have expected to have. Nor did Silk Sonic’s album.
Kendrick Lamar is going to be the frontrunner for Album of the Year… sight unseen or unheard. He is OVERDUE for a General Field win after being a heavy Grammy favorite and now Pulitzer Prize winner.
Harry can take the win in AOTY if he gets even more critical acclaim than his last 2 albums.
Post Malone has his fans within the Recording Academy.
Rihanna might finally drop (although, I doubt it)… same with Beyonce.
Mariah Carey is supposedly releasing a duets album filled with both originals and covers of her famous songs potentially to be titled “The Butterfly Lounge” rumored to feature the likes of The Weeknd, Shawn Mendes, Brandy (already released), The Clark Sisters and others.
Lady Gaga’s song for the Top Gun movie could be so big that it brings it’s soundtrack to the top award.
And then the Recording Academy could always pull a Jon Batiste again and have someone random pop up as the frontrunner… or back someone like Brandi Carlile to AOTY win.Not now
