so we know one of our guest actor in a comedy series nomineesSeptember 24, 2020 at 9:53 am #1203731869
It’s been commissioned for a third season but is on a four year hiatus as there will be a time jump and Platt is too young.
I know some people here are more enthusiastic about that show and I may be more cynical, but do we really expect that to happen? With the way Murphy likes to jump from one idea to the next so quickly? And with how Season 2 was a complete and total non-event?
Also, while that reasoning may be true, to me Platt honestly looks closer to 35 (presidential minimum age) than 18 at this point.September 24, 2020 at 8:56 am #1203731793
I think a standout episode of Stranger Things right after it aired would’ve been better positioned for a win than a hanging episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. Like I said, the win would’ve been between Starcourt and Ozark. That’s how I see it, maybe you disagree, no need to keep going back and forth.September 24, 2020 at 8:37 am #1203731734
the show was on a decline but last year’s competition was abysmal, and it also would’ve been fresh on voters mind as opposed to a year in the past. If it were to be released that season I think it’s pretty easy to see that Harbour and directing would’ve gotten in, with writing and MBB not being out of the question either. From there, if GOT isn’t winning and director’s love there “names” (and I consider the Duffer’s a name) then I think that win would’ve been between Bateman and them.September 24, 2020 at 8:19 am #1203731684
If Stranger Things was released last May I think it’s very likely that Battle of Starcourt would’ve won directing.September 24, 2020 at 6:16 am #1203731527
Genuine question: do people really think that direction is just about visuals? Like just because Midge has just spun into an elevator again after some amazing tracking shot doesn’t mean the show’s well directed.
thank you! this is why I maintain that Fleabag’s directing win last year is also perfectly fine (although barry/lily is a better directed episode than this year’s Maisel’s submissions). I’ve said it before but the Maisel tracking shot schtick has grown stale.September 23, 2020 at 5:43 pm #1203730956
What makes us think Impeachment is making eligibility? Are there filming dates confirmed?
also, a PBS movie isn’t happening in limited actressSeptember 23, 2020 at 11:42 am #1203730255
A lot of this forum is people expressing their opinions, and I can’t act like I’m exempt considering how much I preached how undeserving GOT was last year, but we don’t need to make Braun vs Levy a thing. It’s a really stupid comparison and honestly who cares because they both have awards recognition and we stay talking on the internet.
But past that, its like, Schitt’s directing win wasn’t super deserved, but no need to spend this much energy rooting against a Canadian import with a microbudget that only became a phenomenon through organic word of mouth and it’s content being objectively funny and happy. I really don’t have an ounce of sympathy for the Palladinos with their 2017 Emmy haul and 300 billion dollar budget, and I’m also close to certain WWDITS will be having an Emmy run in the future, so have patience. This was Schitt’s 6th season after all, at least these other shows broke in early on.September 23, 2020 at 7:26 am #1203729617
So did nobody watch the second? I enjoyed this one as well, and I think Jordan Kristine Seamón had a better solo outing than Grazer (who was still good). Also, Kid Cudi…isn’t bad?September 22, 2020 at 9:21 pm #1203729049
um! this week’s episode was so good! best yet! Jamie Chung was outstanding!September 22, 2020 at 6:25 pm #1203728836
Forgot to mention, but for months now I kept stating that directing winners for comedy and drama either go to names or the series that wins writing, which is why I was so steadfast in keeping Succession in directing from nomination day (albeit the wrong episode). The stat was proved again this year, and even doubled down on the comedy side.
Going off that, do you think Succession was 1 + 2 in directing? I’m going to assume yes, because The Crown clearly had a choice episode in Aberfan, and having not seen Ozark, it is my understanding that Fire Pink was the clear choice there too. Meanwhile, I don’t think there’s a clear consensus choice between Hunting and This is Not for Tears (especially considering one has a description with “series finale” and the other has “boar on the floor”).September 22, 2020 at 6:11 pm #1203728818
Gosh I assumed it was from a screener and from The Crown. Now I just realised he literally could have seen anything.
What other drama screeners could it be? (actually asking) Seems to me the question is not if its from the Crown, but WHO it is from the Crown.September 22, 2020 at 9:16 am #1203727738
As a pesimist, I’m already seeing Annie Murphy snubbed everywhere except Critic’s Choice because they already have half the nominees figured out even without voting, since they only care about being sure they got everyone in from previous and future awards shows.
I’m pretty sure she’s making SAG
