That was fine, I guess? More interested in what Adam Driver does here, and I’m not seeing where Scarlett’s unassailable frontrunner status is coming from yet. The dual trailers gimmick was cool though. I wouldn’t mind seeing other films use this marketing trick.August 20, 2019 at 10:55 am #1203031875

I don’t know anything about what she’s said, or remained silent on about Cosby, and it clearly has no impact on her chances, but if she defended him it’s not appalling and disgraceful to criticize her for it.
That’s not the point. The point is saying that Rashad isn’t worthy of an Emmy win b/c of that. It has nothing to do whatsoever with her work. And if she wants to defend Cosby, that’s her damn business. Yes, people can and will criticize that all they want to.August 20, 2019 at 8:06 am #1203031476
Hepburn was pretty great in “Adam’s Rib.” Baxter would have knocked off someone in supporting, but I tend to think it wouldn’t have been a co-star. Voters loved both Holm and Ritter. Olson and Emerson were never nodded again, and I doubt that their support was all that great here. I think one of them would have been the odd woman out. Hull never seemed undeniable to me, but maybe she would have been the de-facto winner with three “Eve” ladies around splitting votes.August 19, 2019 at 11:34 pm #1203031124
Rashad is the frontrunner. If Emmy voters really cared at all about the Cosby connection, they would have snubbed her outright. They couldn’t care less. Hence, she’s as much in this guest actress drama race as anyone. Using that scandal to denigrate her exceptional work on “This Is Us” is both appalling and disgraceful.August 19, 2019 at 11:26 pm #1203031118
Baxter would have been campaigned in supporting today, and we all know that. With the Academy being smaller back then, I’d guess that every vote counted. So maybe not many people would have voted for Baxter over Davis, but both were former, respected Oscar winners. Any vote-spitting, even small, might have been more significant then. And just basing this entirely from an anecdotal perspective of “Bette & Joan” lmao, I think that Hollywood took Bette’s excellence for granted. It’s one thing when Joan had to claw her way for respect in a community she thought of herself as being the ambassador of. It’s another when you’re nominated over and over again but rewarded early in your career like Bette (and sure enough, never winning again after her second). This was about “Baby Jane” later in Davis’s career, but some of that sentiment is apt here too. Parker was always fifth place. Holliday benefited from being the orange in a sea of apples, rare for a comedic win to overtake four dramatic performances. I waver between Davis and Swanson, but I have to go with Swanson. That was her Oscar through and through, and it’s heartbreaking that she died Oscarless. Back to Baxter, I’m curious from an alternative history perspective who would have been in sixth place with Baxter in supporting, and how would that have impacted the lead actress race? Betty Hutton?August 19, 2019 at 11:02 pm #1203031105

Our long national nightmare is finally over. Well, one of them anyways.August 19, 2019 at 2:02 pm #1203030514
First trailer dropped today. It focuses on Aniston mostly, but Witherspoon’s character looks to be an upstart who will rival for Aniston’s anchor position. Carell seems to have a Lauer/#MeToo storyline to deal with, hopefully as a jumping point to something better/more significant. At first glance, this series looks expensive and immediately gives me “The Newsroom” vibes. Billy Crudup is also featured as the requisite network boss sleaze.
Trailer link here:

Pretty good returning episode. The gun control song was the one that interested me the most, but that wasn’t the one chosen. It would take a sensitive treatment that I don’t think Macklemore of all people should be the architect of doing. “Shadow” is fine, I guess. Nice to see them perform at Lollapalooza in Brazil like that. Had to be a dream of the songwriter’s to actually be the featured artist too! My favorite of the three songs was “No Judgments.” Didn’t like what they did to the “La La La” song at all.August 18, 2019 at 10:31 pm #1203029420
That was so savage! Like wow, this is just the second episode lol. Was also loving Jeannie Berlin popping up here and getting Caitlin Fitzgerald back, even in this limited capacity. Ridiculously great tonight! I didn’t want it to end.August 18, 2019 at 9:05 am #1203028776

I always hoped that Peter Fonda would land one great last role. It looks like he stayed busy with work, at least. He was overshadowed in a family of legends, but he had some great cinematic moments of his own too. “Easy Rider” was fantastic and cements his legacy well enough. “Ulee’s Gold” is an underseen gem. Sad news. RIP Peter Fonda.
