Darlings, who do you think has the higher chance to get snubbed? Janney or Tomlin? Or both even?
I am fairly confident that both are finally getting dropped.June 13, 2019 at 3:34 am #1202935549
The Act being at the top of the ballot has to help as well.June 8, 2019 at 8:57 am #1202928287
If Carden gets in, I might predict her to win.June 4, 2019 at 3:18 am #1202922841
Just finished this. Fuck, I don’t recall the last time I felt so emotionally wrecked by a show. This was depressing, and upsetting, and infuriating, but also necessary viewing. We have our Miniseries winner guys, and it’s astonishing that it is not even in the top 5 in the predictions.
I feel so mad at Huffman for what she did, because she was absolutely stellar in this and would have been a lock of a nomination. I hope she is able to salvage her career because she is too damn talented.
Vera Farmiga is easily getting nominated and does more than enough in episode 2 to justify it. Michael Kenneth Williams is getting in as well. I am not so sure about John Leguizamo since he really doesn’t do all that much and doesn’t get any big moment to stand out. I might slot him in later though, he did get in for Waco.
For me, the acting standouts were Jharrel Jerome and Neicy Nash. Jerome was so fucking good, what an amazing breakthrough performance, and he has EARNED his nomination. His performance in episode 4 is possibly the best performance by any contender in his category, and depending on how the show performs with nominations, I might even predict him to win!
I don’t understand why Nash is in Lead when she would have probably won supporting, but I’ll still predict her in lead. Mostly because, besides being a past Emmy nominee that is loved in the industry and has worked with everyone, she is playing so out of type here that she automatically stands out. Also, this is a high-priority show that the Academy will definitely be watching and she is fucking good in it – SPOILER – the scene where she throws out her Trans daughter is so fucking heartbreaking. She is stellar!June 4, 2019 at 12:42 am #1202922752
OMG yesss!!!!June 4, 2019 at 12:42 am #1202922748
Ugh how do I keep falling for these??June 1, 2019 at 12:46 am #1202918738
Nah, I know she got in at Critics Choice and Globes but that show has no industry support, no one cares about Dirty John.
I still have Britton in because they love her. Remember Nashville too had no industry support and she managed to get nominated for it for Drama Actress.June 1, 2019 at 12:45 am #1202918736
It’s the fifth slot that confuses me, which might be a filler nominee since it probably won’t stand a chance of actually winning the prize. I guess either Fosse/Verdon or Catch-22 may take that up. Or heck, what if Maniac surprises since it scored all the important noms at the guilds?
I have The Act getting inMay 30, 2019 at 6:18 am #1202916263
I disagree. The reviews were just as glowing and it was seen by more people. I don’t think it’ll run the table like JCS, but do completely dismiss its chances w/lols is foolish.
I have just two main concerns with predicting it for anything –
1. Unlike JCS, this is a revival of two beloved tv shows, and we know that the Academy isn’t exactly on-board with revivals of beloved tv shows. I know it’s not exactly the same thing as this was a live show, but it does give me concern.
2. We’ve seen musicals like Grease and JSC do well here, but what about something like this which isn’t exactly a musical?May 28, 2019 at 6:52 am #1202913292
Ugh that Mandy Moore snub from last year still hurts so muchMay 28, 2019 at 3:16 am #1202913085
Who do you think will win supporting actress?
The Maisel actresses will split the vote, the SNL ladies will split the vote as well. Chlumsky is not winning either, she would have won by now if she was supposed to win for this role and she isn’t randomly winning for arguably her worst season so far.
Oddly enough, I feel like this category will be taken by either Carden, Goldberg Gilpin, or Coleman – basically whoever manages to get nominated.May 27, 2019 at 11:47 am #1202912485
What if Succession did good at the BAFTAs because the creator is British and it won’t translate to the Emmys?
It’s not just the Bafta nod alone. It’s the Bafta nod in addition to its relatively strong Guild performance, plus you can never underestimate HBO
