Eileen Atkins and Alex Jennings? What world is this?
Do you mean you consider them as supporting or don’t stand a chance for a guest nomination? I’m just in the middle of rewatching the first season, so maybe that’s why I mentioned them but I do remember being bummed about Atkins appearing in 5/10 episodes and Jennings not being submitted at all. I think they were deserving of a nomination.May 27, 2020 at 7:00 am #1203503251
I would also add Eileen Atkins and Alex Jennings for the first season of The Crown. Anthony Hopkins would also go guest for the second season of Westworld. Maybe even Olivia Colman for the first season of Fleabag.May 26, 2020 at 2:52 pm #1203502315
I have more confidence in The Great right now. It’s the first Hulu comedy with pedigree and different than the rest of its lineup. Also, Netflix is totally off the rails this season by not prioritizing GLOW, Sex Education and The Politician.May 25, 2020 at 5:22 pm #1203500544
I understand why they did it, as they wanted it to come out at the same time as the storyline, but it was a truly awful timing for an awards contender.
Viewership always outweighs awards, in fact awards are used to increase a show’s viewership.May 25, 2020 at 5:07 pm #1203500506
I go back and forth on Merritt Wever’s chances.
I think there are enough alternative names in that category that people wouldn’t be upset with her missing. Also, her performance does not strike me as Christina Applegate’s last year who was the only nominee with her show missing the series.May 25, 2020 at 4:08 pm #1203500414
The show is headed full-steam into mess territory. The second season wasn’t also great as the first one but unlike this it had a focus. At this point, writers must think killing people in a cool manner is a shtick on its own that deserves to be seen, but it’s not! Yes, that was an aspect of the show that made it unique but now it is just cheap. Shaw’s increased material is the only saving grace along with the third episode.May 25, 2020 at 3:54 pm #1203500409
That season had aired before the third season was dropped and many consider it as the show’s best. The show overall has a huge viewership and that season particularly had buzz. Netflix had also sent the complete season to the voters, so yes I think it was seen and Aduba wasn’t name-checked but a passion pick. I believe that season is also responsible of Samira Wiley’s supporting nomination for The Handmaid’s Tale.May 25, 2020 at 2:40 pm #1203500354
(coming back after her OITNB snub over Winona Ryder feels big)
People keep bring this up but completely ignore the fact it was her best performance. IMO, it was a win worthy tape (Thandie Newton was my first choice). She is yet to be nominated for a role outside of Crazy Eyes, I would say if eligible Niecy Nash would stand a bigger chance having been nominated for different roles.May 25, 2020 at 2:40 pm #1203500350
It is a huge shame that Emma Thompson won’t get a nomination for her brilliant work on Years and Years, and it is also a shame that the show won’t get wider recognised by the Emmys. But Thompson is one of those actresses who may get in on name alone as she is a beloved figure, even in a very competitive category.
What will be the biggest shame is that she will also be snubbed for Gold Derby Awards despite having been name-checked for a nomination just last year for King Lear in the same category as a result of The Haunting of Hill House actresses splitting votes!May 25, 2020 at 2:26 pm #1203500337
Have I been watching a different show because I truly hated the season/series finale? I think right after introducing the premise the show has jumped the shark. It felt underdeveloped in many ways beginning with the characters. Wever and Gleeson were good but I didn’t care for their performances. I’m surprised that many here cited Panjabi because even though she is a good actress, it was an unremarkable role. I’m pretty sure that this going nowhere at the Emmys.May 25, 2020 at 10:23 am #1203499922
I think people are (unsurprisingly) underestimating Lisa Cholodenko for Unbelievable. She won this category in 2015 and Unbelievable is somewhere in the top 3 for limited series. Yes, she missed DGA, but all her competition (WTSU, Chernobyl and F/V) isn’t eligible at the Emmys, which should help her.
I think she is easily getting in. IMO, she deserves to win the category.May 23, 2020 at 2:40 pm #1203497405
I think that the Oscars and Tonys are done here.
I have always found it weird that those kind of awards ceremonies can compete for awards. I know they are televised but does anyone consider them as television programs as oppose to something like Grease: Live.May 23, 2020 at 2:28 pm #1203497387
Forgot to add that I’m now even more pumped for Ratched. Paulson will also return to American Horror Story as a series regular.May 23, 2020 at 2:52 am #1203496634
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is over for Run. Her nomination for SNL will already be a namecheck and voters won’t have the need to do the same for a show they hadn’t seen. I also think she will be SNL’s sole nomination in that category.
