It’s been 40 years since a black actor won supporting actor. I think it’s time Tituss Burgess changed that.
For what exactly? Being a black actor competing in Supporting Actor? Sandrah Oh is already heading for an undeserved Emmy just to be the first actress of Asian descent to win one.
What’s next? Billy Porter to win next year just to be the first Transgender actor winner in Lead Drama?
That’s what we’re doing now?May 21, 2019 at 5:32 pm #1202903801
Also, per Nielsen, the two-episode finale of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ drew 18.5 million live viewers last Thursday, easily winning the week. The ‘Game of Thrones’ finale was a distant second with 13.61 million live viewers, via @AP.May 20, 2019 at 8:52 pm #1202902490
No. Stone was not winning anything for this role/performance. Just stop.
People are putting way too much stock into Weisz’ BAFTA and BIFA awards….British awards. She was always going to be runner-up. A lead placement for her would have been the biggest waste ever, since literally no one except the British wanted to give her an award for this role. Glenn Close would’ve easily won.
Colman won the Oscar in a head to head battle with overdue Glenn Close, who damn near swept the televised awards. That should tell you how strong she was.May 20, 2019 at 12:14 am #1202900639
The episode in itself is great. The cinematography is unbelievably stunning.
But My God, what an anticlimactic way to end the show. You can’t help but feel cheated. It’s like the writers were winging it. Poor handling of characters. Jesus!
Emilia Clarke is the MVP for me.May 19, 2019 at 5:02 am #1202899416
I doubt it will Win Writing
We’ll have this conversation again in a future thread titled “How did Game of Thrones win that Writing Emmy“…….or “Game of Thrones did deserve that Writing Emmy win“.
David Benioff & D. B. Weiss already won 2 Writing Emmys. The finale is gonna get them their 3rd Writing Emmy.May 19, 2019 at 4:44 am #1202899400
The one single positive thing the entire GoT backlash can do is grant them only 1 directing nom, in this case I can’t see them losing. However it will indicate lack of general support, which might hints bad things about the big prize. I hope all will go well haha
I doubt the backlash will hurt Game of Thrones in any way for nominations. It’s the last season of the most talked about (most buzzed) show on television. They will mark it down every chance they get, in every category possible, for nominations.
It’s winning Supporting Actor, Directing, Writing and Drama Series. No doubt about that.May 19, 2019 at 1:00 am #1202899276
Ugh, is Jim Parson really going to be nominated again? That sixth slot is ridiculous. I have Jim Carrey only because Kidding was pretentiously artsy, which makes it more admirable than other flops. At least they were striving for something, you know? But if it comes down to pure name recognition, I could see it being Jason Bateman. He has so much respect right now. We know how much the Emmys could not care less about certain shows (especially in the comedy lead categories), but people get nominated because of accumulated goodwill from their careers.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is headed for her 7th nomination and 7th consecutive win for VEEP. That’s really where the “Ugh” should start and end.
Would be great if both Parsons and Louis-Dreyfus won again on the same night. The last time the Emmys had ratings to write home about, was 2014 (66th) where they both won.
From a ratings standpoint (ask the Oscars), Game of Thrones and Big Bang Theory would bring in audiences the Emmys need. The audiences they lost when they dropped a popular, ratings monster like The Big Bang Theory, in favor of niche and bougie shows that people don’t watch. We’re at a disastrous 10 million viewers, the lowest in history, and lower than a lot of Network tv shows. And dropping.
Give the people what they want. The Oscars just proved that.May 17, 2019 at 10:44 pm #1202898252
Difficult to choose a “best” off all-time. Screenplays are so different, with subject matter,style and execution. So you can’t really lump them together to determine an absolute “best”.
With that said, Manchester By The Sea, I feel, is ONE OF THE BEST WRITTEN screenplays in recent memory. It reads like a dream, and translates beautifully onscreen. Stunning!
GET OUT……NO. Just NO.May 17, 2019 at 10:03 am #1202897746
The finale scored a 3.1 in the demo (up 55% over the last original episode) and 18 million viewers.
– Most watched episode of the Big Bang Theory since the Season 9 premiere in 2015.
– It’s also one of the most watched series finale’s since Everybody Loves Raymond’s end in 2005.
Final ratings and viewership will be higher. They’ll be released tomorrow.May 17, 2019 at 5:48 am #1202897488

Jim Parsons deserves a big fat Emmy for that finale. The nobel speech was earth-shatteringly good. What a high to end the series on.
Not sure about winning, but it’s safe to say he is most likely getting his 7th Emmy nomination. The finale also deserves a Comedy writing nod, if you ask me. And judging how Emmy writers love nostalgic writing nominations for departing shows, it probably will get a farewell nod for Writing.May 13, 2019 at 2:03 am #1202891449
Enough with the Green Book hate. I’m
And also, I thought it was forbidden to even talk about these two films. Since they apparently send a certain group of people straight to their SAFE SPACES.
Thank you, because I have been dying to start a thread on my love for Crash and The Blind Side.May 13, 2019 at 1:53 am #1202891425
Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody would have won either way. Doesn’t matter what category they were placed in.
The neysayers will disagree of course.
The HFPA is great at responding to which films Hollywood likes, and which films have passion in the industry.May 10, 2019 at 7:20 am #1202887942
Renée Zellweger coming for that Oscar. The narrative writes itself. Comeback of an Oscar winning Hollywood darling, portraying a Hollywood screen legend, doing her own singing and dancing, with nostalgia taking over.
Critics won’t touch her, but the Golden Golbes, BAFTA and the Screen Actors Guild will most definitely bite.
