The Globes have so few slots that there is no space for nonsense* in the form of roles with no material. *They do nominate nonsense, but it is of a different brand.
They are responsible for Matthew Macfadyen not being hailed as the standout supporting actor of Succession. If they had not randomly nominated Kieran Culkin for the first season Macfadyen would be the clear consensus.October 23, 2020 at 3:20 pm #1203799201

Is the Euphoria Christmas special going to be eligible here? Because if so I can see Zendaya winning Limited/Movie Actress simply because she won the Drama Actress Emmy.
If that happens it will prove that HFPA just want to copy and paste from the Emmys in television, I don’t think that special episode should be considered as a television movie. Also, can’t we just scrap the term “television movie” as so many movies are available only on streaming platforms nowadays.October 19, 2020 at 3:55 pm #1203789646
If a returning show has two episodes it is eligible to compete as a limited series. This rule initially applied to shows that were previously classified as a regular series, so that Sherlock and Luther could compete in limited series (not necessarily them), in fact they even made an exception to Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life to compete as a limited series. But what we are seeing now is that Academy is very persistent with episodic anthologies and revivals competing as regular shows that regardless of your initial classification if there are more than two episodes you must compete as a regular show.October 13, 2020 at 2:22 pm #1203776346
I realized I May Destroy You may have a troubling guilds performance. First of all it is ineligible for WGA, so it is saying goodbye to an easy original longform nomination given how so many projects this year are adaptations. Then a populist ceremony like SAG will reject this for names like Blanchett and Kidman or other known actresses playing real life figures. DGA is so random in limited series that I’m expecting them to go for Hamilton and American Utopia given how they previously nominated similar things. For PGA the race is so stacked that when it is not a factor with others they might pass it as well. That being said, it has an insane amount of passion from critics, so it actually has a potential to do well with the Emmy voters especially if HBO campaigns it.October 11, 2020 at 1:53 pm #1203771759
If the 2021 Emmys were tomorrow… it would be cancelled due to lack of contenders.
