SNL needs to stay out of the supporting and guest categories. Period.March 18, 2019 at 9:57 am #1202820702
Unfortunately, Conroy’s name wasn’t present at the time the predictions center opened, and Bates along with Field is one of those inflations we see (The Looming Tower actors last year). Bates has lost her namecheck status for AHS and did not do anything worthy this season. What I have realized this year is that so many star vehicle projects are turning out to be dissapointing. Emma Stone is an incredible actress, yet her talent is criminally wasted in Maniac. Sharp Objects has also failed to deliver material for Amy Adams which Big Little Lies yielded to Kidman. Therefore, I expect to see projects like The Haunting of Hill House sneaking in, those voters will watch and enjoy.
Disagree with you on “Sharp Objects” not delivering (I loved it), and I actually thought Sally Field was quite good on “Maniac” (memorable was the “Rev up the Miata” line). Though not as good as Clarkson, Perkins, Hill House ladies, Conroy, Lange.March 18, 2019 at 9:19 am #1202820644
I don’t understand why Kathy Bates is so high in the prediction center. The only person who should be nominated from AHS is Frances Conroy (and Jessica Lange, if she was eligible–which still doesn’t make sense why she isn’t, but alas). Bates did nothing noteworthy this year (even Joan Collins would be more worthy than Bates, but she doesn’t really deserve a nomination either).March 16, 2019 at 3:09 pm #1202818821
Whatever happened to Kathleen Quinlan? Haven’t really seen her do anything prominent in a long time.March 15, 2019 at 11:45 am #1202817734
I’d love to see Imelda Staunton in an Oscar worthy role–but I hope to see her win a Tony for “Gypsy” first.
I know Mary McDonnell has two noms, but they were long ago, and I’d love to see her in the spotlight again.March 14, 2019 at 6:45 am #1202816097
I’m not very excited for this season, given the casting. I haven’t liked Eichner’s characters at all, and I’d rather them find acclaimed actresses of a certain age to cast.March 14, 2019 at 6:41 am #1202816092
well… I think an Emmy nomination is not on her priority list, right now.
I mean, yeah, it probably wasn’t on her priority list even before this scandal. But as fans of her work, a few people on this board were predicting her (and rooting for her) for “Central Park 5” before this happened. As someone who was blown away by her work in “Transamerica” and “American Crime” (and loved “Housewives”), this scandal still comes as a shock. Not surprising, but shocking.March 12, 2019 at 11:54 am #1202813917
In shock for Huffman, who blew me away in many performances. I guess this means she isn’t getting nommed for the Central Park 5 Netflix miniseries (also what does this mean for the miniseries and the Netflix movie she was starting in)?
This basically sounds like the plot for Season 4 of “American Crime.”March 5, 2019 at 12:32 pm #1202804940
I loved Clarkson, but it would be wonderful to have Arquette win both lead and supporting actress this year (if her performance is good in “The Act”).March 5, 2019 at 12:29 pm #1202804935
God, I hate all these SNL performances in guest categories… I know it was said like 1000 times, but bring back Variety Performance category, I beg you Emmys.
I’ve hated SNL in the comedy series categories for years, and I’m surprised no one really cares about this! SNL does not fit in with comedy series, and the winners (especially in guest) are taking away from other guest stars in comedies who are actually deserving.March 1, 2019 at 3:37 pm #1202800736
I too saw Glenn live in the revival and she really is incomparable.
I saw it too, and Close (and the whole production) was aces. I’m praying this is what it takes for her to finally win, because she will win. That final “With One Look” at the end had me with chills all over.March 1, 2019 at 3:33 pm #1202800726
Close in “Liaisons” > Colman in “Favourite.” The final scene in “Liaisons” where Close is wiping off her makeup is one of the finest.February 25, 2019 at 10:33 am #1202794027
I’m heartbroken for Glenn Close. I loved her performance in “The Wife,” and I’m probably one of the few members of this board who believed her performance (not just for her career) absolutely deserved to win over the competition. I was in shock when the winner was announced. I would have loved to seen her speech, and also her elevation to triple crown status.
That being said, Sunset Blvd. needs to be fast-tracked ASAP. I saw the show in 2017, and it was one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. She was mesmerizing.
