1. Julianna Margulies for The Good Wife (season 5): Nothing and I mean absolutely nothing meant more to me in this decade than Julianna Margulies winning her second Emmy for “The Good Wife.” This was an Emmy well earned. Absolutely well earned.
2. Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep (season 6): Watching Ms. Dreyfus win her 6th consecutive Emmy for Veep (lead actress) was gratifying and amazing! I enjoyed every second of it.
3. The Normal Heart for Outstanding TV Movie: I was stunned that evening as I watched and TNH was shut-out of all but one category. I was pretty happy when they won TV movie, but still feel they deserved more wins.November 19, 2019 at 3:43 pm #1203188581
There also seems to be some tension between Corday Productions and Sony Pictures Television. There is a lawsuit against Sony from Corday Productions alleging that Sony is trying to kill DOOL in favor of Y&R which makes more money for them. Apparently, Sony isn’t promoting DOOL enough or trying to sell it into other territories the way they do Y&R.
Overall, I think DOOL will get renewed, NBC has seemingly been happy with its performance. I think it’ll stay put at least another year.
I’ve read the whole contract thing is nothing more than shrewd business on Corday’s part to allow the actors to return at a lower rate and cut costs.November 19, 2019 at 3:38 pm #1203188577
Why is no one considering Nicole Kidman for Bombshell? Real question lol.
I’m assuming it’s because compared to her two co-stars her performance is lacking something needed to get buzz. Theron apparently completely transforms into Megyn Kelly and Robbie apparently gives a fantastic performance. IDK, I think maybe she just loses out to her two co-stars.November 10, 2019 at 6:05 pm #1203173886
I watched a little of this, and frankly I thought it was a poorly executed show. It kind of reminds me of “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” without the benefit of Aaron Sorkin genius writing. First off, Reese Witherspoon is about 20 years too old for the role she is playing; Jennifer Aniston is just not a strong enough actress to carry this show and Steve Carell is poorly cast here.
The performance by Billy Crudup is laughable and I feel bad for many of the supporting players here who get very little to do.
That said, my biggest issue isn’t with the show itself, but with the Apple+ Plus platform which is just a nightmare to navigate and use. I tried for over two hours to use the site and couldn’t get the site to play for more than 15 minutes without it freezing or buffering. I just gave up after a while, the show wasn’t good enough to be worth the hassle.November 10, 2019 at 5:49 pm #1203173867
My idea is to have three hosts: Tiffany Haddish, Queen Latifah and Lena Waithe. I think they would make a tremendous trio and would light the Oscars on fire. It would be really funny to see them riffing off each other.November 10, 2019 at 5:45 pm #1203173865
Jennie Garth is hinting on social media that she show is possibly being picked up by another network or a streaming service (most likely Hulu). So it may not be over just yet.November 6, 2019 at 7:49 pm #1203169256
I hope it does cause then Mimi would have 19 #1 hits and would be only one hit away from breaking the record currently held by the Beatles for most #1 hits on the billboard charts. I kind of hope I live to see the day when this happens, Mariah deserves this record. Especially this that horrible old town road song broke her other record for most weeks at #1 that she held for 25 years with “One Sweet Day.”November 6, 2019 at 7:41 pm #1203169253
Thanks guys, I really had no idea how it was decided which movies were considered for what award shows.November 2, 2019 at 5:31 pm #1203163446
It would be incredible for Mimi if this occured, but I’m not convinced it will happen. Would it even count towards her tally if it went to #1 since it is a 20 year old song?October 31, 2019 at 5:15 pm #1203161140
BTW, just for the record my personal choices in 2002 were Renee Zellweger and Diane Lane. I actually think that “Unfaithful” is a vastly underrated movie, and her performance in particular is vastly underrated by modern audiences.
My rankings in 2002 were (and mostly remain the same)

What do you guys really think is going on between Mullally, Messing and Hayes? A personal dispute between them? An addiction issue or just some sort of petty mean girls stuff?
It just seems odd for Mulally to suddenly distance herself from them after so many years.
Any speculation?October 30, 2019 at 6:11 pm #1203159717
Nicole Kidman was the clear favorite to win that year, and Renee was seen as unlikely to win the Oscar. Here on Goldderby I do recall many posters had strong admiration for Julianne Moore and many were hoping she would win (though not predicting it).October 29, 2019 at 7:00 pm #1203158291
Actors can’t get two nominations on the same category, it’s a rule.
I’m curious does that mean she’d likely avoid campaigning for one film in favor of the other? Or why would she even be submitted for both if her team knows she isn’t able to be nominated for both.October 26, 2019 at 5:06 pm #1203154307
