It’ll never happen now, but the original story to Watchmen would’ve been a great miniseries. Something like that just doesn’t work as a film, they needed several episodes to cover it.August 5, 2020 at 8:42 am #1203627710
Not bad, but DC would’ve been a much better choice in my mind.August 5, 2020 at 7:49 am #1203627636
Jeffrey Wright getting nominations for Supporting, then Lead, now Supporting again just proves the guy is highly respected and has a huge fan base within the Television Academy. And with everyone and their momma complaining that he either didn’t do anything this season to he got that nomination for that “one scene”, and yet still grabbed a coveted nomination, tells me he’s getting votes. A lot of votes. With a category that doesn’t have a clear front-runner and possible vote splitting playing a role, I believe he could be the beneficiary.
I think you’re reading too much into a simple name check.
And this category does have a frontrunner in the form of SAG nominee Billy Crudup.August 4, 2020 at 10:05 am #1203626211
Yeah I’m pretty sure I won’t watch, that trailer was a campy mess. It made the image of Stone’s monkey look subtle.
I don’t quite get the point of the show, as they make it seem like Ratched was always a monster, so what’s the point of delving into her backstory then?
With that being said, Paulson and Briones look good.August 4, 2020 at 8:09 am #1203625989
I’ll be very disappointed if This Extraordinary Being doesn’t take it. It’s one of the best directed episodes I’ve ever seen on TV.August 4, 2020 at 7:37 am #1203625910
Was there a filter on your end that prevented you from seeing this: “Insecure was, from here, guaranteed a minimum of 5 nominations (should’ve gotten writing/directing along w/series, Rae and Orji).” My point was, Penny didn’t have to go there. Insecure belongs in the comedy race for a job well done last season. Tracee Ellis Ross…not so much.
I saw what you wrote and it was clearly being negative about Penny.August 4, 2020 at 7:14 am #1203625852
These 2 comments are the definition of unpopular, but they are also Emmy-related. However, these do not belong in the comedy reactions topic because the nominations are already set in stone and talk is rightfully focused on who should/will win. So, IMO… 1) The ‘broadcast network slot’ in comedy lead actress looks like it came down to Tracee Ellis Ross or Kristen Bell. Forget Jane Levy; she’ll get her chance next year and in 2022, perhaps. The voters’ hatred of Bell over the past 15 years is legend, and despite the fact Black-ish’s best days, quality wise are behind it, Ellis Ross made it through. Season 6 of Black-ish was such an afterthought it received no Rotten Tomatoes OR Metacritic rating. It was shut out at SAG, Golden Globes, Critics Choice and TCA. Which brings up the legit possibility that TER was a diversity nomination after not making the 2019 Emmy field. And Bell will forever go unrecognized for TWO jaw-dropping, career-best performances (the other, of course, was Veronica Mars). 2) Prentice Penny, the showrunner of Insecure, in his July 6 op-ed screed on the Deadline Hollywood website: https://deadline.com/2020/07/prentice-penny-hollywood-blackface-commentary-diversity-plan-guest-column-1202978040 …didn’t trust his own cast and creatives from what all accounts was the show’s best season yet. Insecure was, from here, guaranteed a minimum of 5 nominations (should’ve gotten writing/directing along w/series, Rae and Orji). Instead, IMO, he not only played the race card, he dealt it from the bottom of the deck. And the tragedy is, he didn’t have to.
Don’t waste your time hating Ross or Penny, Bell would’ve missed even if their shows weren’t in contention.August 3, 2020 at 9:49 pm #1203625479
I still have yet to understand how some of this forum have convinced themselves that Thandie’s was a bad/undeserving win. Thankfully it’s just another GD thing.
Nobody’s saying it’s a bad win, but almost everyone agrees she was way better in season 1, and the latter half of 2 has her pretty out of focus, so it’s not hard to imagine her season 1 loss played a role in her win for season 2.
Personally, I’d say she should’ve won for 1, been nominated for 2, and been snubbed for 3.August 3, 2020 at 5:34 pm #1203625227
Brown’s not taking votes from Shalhoub.August 3, 2020 at 3:34 pm #1203625005
If I was Sterling I’d have gone with the finale. But I think he doesn’t expect to win for such a small role.August 3, 2020 at 3:31 pm #1203624991
Holly Hunter gives a guest role on Succession and is most probably not returning considering her arc. I’d put Hiam Abbass in instead (although she might not return either but she’s likelier than Hunter).
Hunter will probably appear in a guest capacity. They reference her in the finale and how she’s currently not saying anything until the board meeting, but I’m guessing she’ll pop up afterwards. Also Abbas will definitely be back, and I can see her having much more to do this time. I’m wondering if she’ll still be supporting Logan given their conflict this past season.
Also, depending on the size of her role, I wouldn’t be surprised if Snook goes lead next time.August 3, 2020 at 2:08 pm #1203624759
I see that he is ranked last but Jeremy Pope is second to Paul Mescal. Hugh Jackman and Jeremy Irons are not contenders for the win.
But Pope is in a poorly received series where he himself has mixed reviews. The only Hollywood Actor who has a chance is probably Parsons, cause he has such a showy role, but the problematic nature of the role holds him back.August 3, 2020 at 12:55 pm #1203624443
Nothing would make me happier than to hear “We have a tie”.
Absolutely! I liked Moss’s performance in season 1 of Handmaid’s but the fact Foy lost that year is ridiculous. Also this may sound like an exaggeration but I really think Foy could have played the Queen up until the final season. I was fortunate enough to see her work in Lungs on stage and she played older phenomenally.
Yes, but theatre is a much less literal art form than tv. On stage you can get away with something like that, but most TV fans would find Foy playing so beyond her age ridiculous.August 3, 2020 at 12:45 pm #1203624381
How is having constant nervous breakdowns subtle?
There’s a lot more to his performance than that, and even his breakdowns aren’t these huge “I’M ACTING” moments. Strong has a lot of wonderful ticks and mannerisms in his work that aren’t always noticeable at first, but they all add up to an overall stellar portrayal.
