Kid Cudi saying everything that needs to be said about the Weeknd’s egregious snubsNovember 10, 2020 at 1:10 pm #1203827615
The general opinion I’m seeing from several critics’ reviews is that it’s a great season but still not as good as Season 2 (which is fair since I think Season 2 will continue to be hard to beat). In terms of performances, I’m surprised to read that Anderson is somehow more divisive than I was expecting but I’m definitely not surprised to see unanimous praise for Corrin, especially when Diana is such a likable character. It’ll be interesting to see what happens with O’Connor because while many critics are calling his performance a standout, they’re also saying that Charles comes off as extremely unlikable this season.
Basically, in the reviews I’ve read, most of the praise is centered on the cast and their performances and the directing. On the other hand, most of the criticism (when I’ve seen any) is directed towards the somewhat “scattered” nature of the season and the writing at times, where this season doesn’t have as much of a central arc as Season 2 does. So, I can definitely see likely wins for acting and directing but I don’t feel as confident with writing wins for now, depending on the competition.
Though there are only 11 critics’ reviews in so far on Metacritic, I’m surprised the score for the 4th season (83 as of right now) isn’t higher. Do we expect the score to rise or drop as more reviews come in?October 18, 2020 at 11:34 pm #1203787745
Since it just aired its finale tonight, does anyone who watched all of Lovecraft Country want to speak to its Emmy chances? Will it have enough longevity to grab a good # of nominations next year?
Personally didn’t enjoy the show a ton at the start so I didn’t stick with it (I do think it’s very well-made but it’s just not my kind of show) but I just wanted to hear the opinions of others who did watch it to the end!October 17, 2020 at 10:45 pm #1203785444
Random question for those who were paying close attention to these awards last time: how much did Fleabag’s wins at the Golden Globes seem to benefit from its huge awards haul at the Emmy’s before?
Just trying to gauge how much influence the Emmy’s (either wins/noms) can have on the Globes because I know a lot of the general public seemed to pay attention to the show after it took home a lot of awards on Emmy’s night (the industry had obviously fallen in love with it much earlier than that though)October 6, 2020 at 1:21 pm #1203763992
How come Ozark is so high in the odds?
On one hand, the HFPA have never really gone for Ozark (other than Jason Bateman), so it might seem weird at first that it is so high. But, I think there is just such a lack of competition that it would be weird if it didn’t finally pick up nominations for its buzziest season yet. Especially against an empty field of nominees.
That said, I don’t know if I would go crazy for it with predicting nominations across the board for all of its actors…October 6, 2020 at 1:14 pm #1203763980
Yeah I’m dropping Jodie from my predictions for Corrin. I was hesitant about predicting 5 Netflix actors in one category but I think Corrin playing Diana may be as undeniable as Foy playing The Queen.
Oh wow, I think Corrin has got a good shot at getting in but that’s a bold statement to make lol. Of course, there’s a chance Corrin as Diana will be phenomenal (haven’t seen it so I can’t say whether that is true or not but I’m sure it’ll be great) But, I think there is an inherent difference in the level of material Foy had to work with as the Queen vs Corrin as Diana.October 6, 2020 at 12:50 am #1203762833
Are people confident about Lovecraft Country performing well in nominations? I feel really uncertain about that show in general with regards to how much buzz it actually has and whether or not it will even appeal to the HFPA at all…October 3, 2020 at 7:02 pm #1203757659
I love the show and I know people on here are quite passionate about it a lot more than I am but if Netflix wants to win Drama Series and Drama Actress next year it would be incredibly stupid to release Ozark and The Crown in the same cycle and divide its priorities when if it releases The Crown alone this cycle and releases Ozark for the 2022 cycle (where The Crown will be missing) it will have a better chance at wins.
I don’t know that it would be stupid actually because I think it depends…
For instance, if the 2 frontrunners next year are The Crown and Ozark while the all the other dramas are far behind, then I can actually see this being very good for Netflix since they can just win and sweep all the drama categories with either one or the other.
But, if a single frontrunner from HBO or another network emerges (the possibility of The Mandalorian actually winning continues to scare me with the power of Disney…), then it could end up as a repeat of the situation this year like with Succession benefitting from receiving undivided attention. (though I’m not sure how much it actually hurt Netflix to divide attention between several shows)October 3, 2020 at 6:32 pm #1203757584
FYC: Westworld for Program and Drama.
Lol the new season was disappointing and a drop in quality relative to previous seasons but against Riverdale and 13 Reasons Why?? At the very least, I can still sit through episodes of Westworld… can’t say the same for those others…October 3, 2020 at 6:25 pm #1203757568
The Crown should dominate, but I can’t see it winning in Acting beyond S. Actress and maybe either Lead Actress/S. Actor. Even Writing is, imo, a stretch (even for a weak field, it could totally lose like GoT did to Succession). So not a full sweep.
Definitely agree for the acting because I think that this upcoming season will really be powered by the standout female performances on the show (from what we know about the storylines, etc.). Supp Actress is likely a lock and they could certainly push for Lead Actress for Colman’s last season as a narrative. But, I can’t see the acting branch having enough passion for each and every single performance on the show that would allow for a full sweep in wins for acting categories, especially when the men got snubbed just in nominations for season 3.
But, I do think Writing is a possibility (GoT losing to Succession was because Succession legitimately had very obviously better writing… I don’t know that there will be many shows eligible next year that will have strong enough writing to pose a threat versus the Crown though). That being said, if Ozark comes back with a powerful half-season, I would say that Ozark has a better shot than the Crown because of its momentum.October 2, 2020 at 8:49 pm #1203754416
Nicholas Braun aka Greg from Succession appeared on this video (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJIbNJjt6w0&t=202s) and said at around minute 12:10 that they might come back with the new season around “next year, late summer maybe” and that shooting should start “in a month”, meaning late October/November.
I think we should expect it to miss for the most part, unless they speed up production on purpose (which I find unlikely)
Also random but from the video, Bon Jovi is apparently a huge fan of the show lmao.October 2, 2020 at 11:14 am #1203753106
I think Insecure could potentially make it back because its last season only took about 3 months to film and there were reports of production starting in early 2021, but I’m not confident because filming in LA will slow things down. The backdrop of LA is such a big part of that show that I’m not sure how they will work around it if they do.
Dead to Me took exactly a year between Seasons 1 and 2, so I feel like with COVID, it may take more than a year between Seasons 2 and 3 which would mean it would probably miss eligibility. But, it did take about 3 months to film Season 2 though, so it does depend on how much they have written. (with it being the final season though, I’d guess they would probably want to take their time wrapping it up?)
Russian Doll was supposed to start filming earlier this year so I think that we can assume they finished writing most/all of it, and I think they can squeeze it in as long as filming doesn’t take too long. I think this could be Netflix’s big push actually, assuming the 2nd season is as good or maybe even better than the 1st.October 1, 2020 at 9:42 pm #1203751437

Let’s see whether Television Academy will seek to recognize the bests of this season or go Film Academy’s route and seek to recognize things they think should be nominated by changing the eligibility period.
Frankly, I’m surprised they haven’t mentioned considering changing the eligibility period. Does anyone have an idea of when they would need to announce a change by?
Seeing the possible nominees though, I’m frankly more concerned about the drama field than comedy (the fact that The Mandalorian and Stranger Things have an even better chance at winning next year than usual because of the lack of nominees is simply concerning)September 29, 2020 at 8:26 pm #1203743661
^Seeing little hints of reactions to this upcoming season and the performances… I think Gillian Anderson is coming for that Emmy! (also not surprising regardless because Anderson is great in everything and Thatcher is such a big and showy role)
