Jack Dylan Grazer by far the worst snub!
Where are Insecure and Yvonne Orjii? Insecure had a stellar season.
I’m sorry for Nicole, but that category was too much competitive and while she carried very well the show the performance nominated are better.
Love This Is Us stays on the list with both Sterling and Justin making the cut. Pelphrey will win but Justin really needs to win something.
Love the Plot Against America love, very well deserved.January 17, 2021 at 1:29 pm #1203988326
Kingsley Ben-Adir should be a lock for an Oscar nod, making a perfect lineup with Ahmed, Boseman, Hopkins and Lindo. He’s clearly the movie standout and the only lead.
Odom Jr., also a standout, is competitive for a win in supporting. Eli Goree (not a lead!) and Aldis Hodge were very good too.
Can’t choose between this one and Trial Chicago 7 as the best ensemble of the year.January 12, 2021 at 5:19 am #1203979070
I know she had Steve Jobs (she should have won) but Winslet has now a sort of 12 years curse of great lead roles… just on paperJanuary 11, 2021 at 4:02 pm #1203977855
Is it confirmed I Hate Suzie as a drama?January 8, 2021 at 2:58 am #1203968880
I have yet to see Mulligan, But Kirby would be a deserving winner.
She reminds me of a young Cate Blanchett…a sort of Godess who came on this earth.
Burstyn was great too and should be locked for a nomination.
I also were expecting slightly better reviews for the movie itself..I found it perfectly directed and I had no probems with the screenplay either.January 5, 2021 at 5:40 am #1203963306
Adam Driver and Chalamet for sure.
I would add Lucas Hedges whose career so far has been beyond impressive.December 30, 2020 at 6:35 am #1203952776
People is too confident The Morning Show will be back in time.
In march they were at episode 2 but they rewrote to include Covid.
Then they went back in late october and now they might be in hatius.
If I’m not wrong they filmed season 1 for seven months.
My bet is for a fall premiere (or maybe summer) and all that show needs is not to rush things!!December 28, 2020 at 10:18 pm #1203950852
In Six Feet Under, Griffiths was supporting in season 1, 3 and 4. I would argue that she could have been classified as a lead in seasons 2 and 5. She likely would have won the Emmy if she had stayed supporting for the first two seasons. Her unfortunate tape “The Secret,” also didn’t help matters, as it was centered on her sex addiction and included a threesome. The decision was likely made based on her acting, but it wasn’t wise coming off her Golden Globes win.
Hall was a lead but he would have won at least once if he had submitted supporting, especially for “A Private Life.” I think the vote splitting helped Chiklis and Janney win in 2002. That year was expected to be close between Six Feet Under and The West Wing, but instead the latter won three out of four acting awards, with the latter only winning director for Ball guest actress for Clarkson.
A Private Life was probably with All Alone their best written episode ever (both written by Kate Robin) and showcased a great performance by Michael c. hall.
About 2002 submission Griffiths should have probably gone with I’ll Take You. Small screentime but the breakup scene with Nate was their Whitecaps. And by the way Janney won that year for one scene.
I still find stunning Griffiths arc in season 2.December 26, 2020 at 5:24 am #1203945775
Colman lead, Weisz supporting (and should have won that category by a mile).
Stone had lead screentime but she worked also in supporting due to the storyline. We saw worst fraud like Rooney Mara and Alicia Vikander in 2016.December 25, 2020 at 10:03 pm #1203945445
Love, of course. The show is very good even now in its 17th season, I will watch it until the end and I will miss it tremendously. I found it a bit trite to read about its glorious days in the past, especially when we talk about performances. All the fans that have watched until now know that Caterina Scorsone, Sarah Drew, Camilla Luddington, Kim Raver, Jesse Williams, Giacomo Gianniotti, Chris Carmack and Kelly McCreary has been equally amazing, all of them have unforgettable performances, as good as the original cast. Especially, Caterina Scorsone, undoubtedly, one of the top performers of the entire show.
That scene with Amelia confronting Meredith for not calling her before Derek was dying was one the best acted scene ever on the show. Pompeo and Scorsone were both heartbreaking.December 25, 2020 at 9:59 pm #1203945441
I also saw the first one.
I’m in! Guilty pleasure we deserve this Christmas. Unlike Murphy, Shonda strikes with her first Netflix project..December 25, 2020 at 1:48 pm #1203945101
So true. But I do admit they need to submit better. There was no reason to submit that “Waiting Room” episode for season 3.
worthy writing/ directing contenders in each season:
Pilot, Memphis, Moonshadow
Number 1, Superbowl Sunday, The Fifth Wheel, The Car
Songbird Road Part 1, Our Little Island Girl
The Dinner & The Date, Clouds, After The Fire, Strangers Part 2
They never (hardly?) submit Kay Oyegun which is a shame because she always has the strongest episodes.
Love these choices.
I would add Pilot from season 1 and The Cabin from season 4December 25, 2020 at 10:08 am #1203944953
For Little Miss Sunshine I would have nominated Steve Carell over winner Alan Arkin (Arkin was great too)December 25, 2020 at 9:52 am #1203944939
Yes probably most times they didn’t submit well, but voters for me are clearly snob towards the show and The don’t see anything beyond acting.
In 2019 would have been my writing winner with Songbird Road part One or Our Little Island Girl
