That doesn’t prove it ‘tanked’ with audiences though. It’s not uber popular but it isn’t a complete dud either otherwise it wouldn’t be getting six seasons. No number of awards could compensate if it was a flop with audiences.July 14, 2020 at 1:05 am #1203584965
When The Outsider actually happens…July 13, 2020 at 10:49 pm #1203584894
But would it be fair to classify Schitt’s simply as cable and dismiss the fact it is made with the broadcast network sensibilities and restrictions and hence, would appeal to that demographic?July 13, 2020 at 1:08 pm #1203584185
Since we were talking about it, here are all the places where The Handmaid’s Tale was recognised in the series category for its three seasons respectively (wins in bold)
THT S1: Emmy, TCA, AFI, Critic’s Choice, Golden Globes, Peabody, PGA, Satellite, Saturn, BAFTA, C21 International Drama, OFTA, Empire, EMA, GALECA, IGN Summer Movie Awards
THT S2: Emmy, TCA, PGA, Satellite, GLAAD, Saturn, GALECA, BAFTA, Globes de Cristal, OFTA, IGN Summer Movie Awards, People’s Choice Awards
THT S3: *crickets*
Anyone can see what I’m about to talk about hopefully. I really find it hard to believe that a show that has been actively rejected by almost every body (industry, critics, gp and others) that previously recognised it with wins and nominations for the series as a whole, is as safe for a series nomination as it’s being predicted to be or is even getting nominated tbh.
Homeland was pretty much on the same trajectory as well- missing series noms almost everywhere for its third season which had a major decline in critical and fan reception and it was most likely stronger with its recent two major Emmy wins + SAG, DGA and WGA noms for the snubbed season.
The Handmaid’s Tale is probably the show that had the steepest decline in support I’ve seen in recent years, going from wins to snubs the very next year at multiple places. It’s not about it missing things like PGA or Globes (shows have gotten nominated without them anyway) but more about how it has shown itself to be on the same trajectory everywhere in terms of support and how it’s largely viewed by the same in the series race. See how even TMS can manage a TCA nomination despite the lashing from critics because of the trajectory it’s on and that such things are important.
Do we really expect the Emmys to be that behind and ignore what the general consensus has formed around the show? They have shown to be not that out of touch of what’s going on everywhere else.July 11, 2020 at 10:24 pm #1203582106
Yeah, that seems totally inaccurate. No need to take them seriously. I mean there was a similar survey in 2017 where it was found that Divorce was apparently the most popular HBO drama/comedy in the US, topping 12 states compared to Game of Thrones’ 2. Such surveys are a total waste of time.July 10, 2020 at 4:29 pm #1203580485
Good riddance.July 10, 2020 at 1:00 pm #1203580271
I mean if the McTeer votes are trolling then why does Garner have like 4 votes and is almost at the bottom? No troll could’ve done that. Maybe a few of those McTeer votes aren’t genuine idk but I think it’s clear that after Snook and Seehorn, she has the most support here and the statement that Garner has easily more passion than her everywhere is unfounded and disproven. Dismissing the poll completely because the expected didn’t happen is something I don’t agree with.July 9, 2020 at 6:36 pm #1203579126
Girls, I might have something to say about Ms. Colman’s TCA snub…July 9, 2020 at 5:38 pm #1203579006
Since 2006 only four prior times have Guest/Supporting performances been nominated (Alan Alda, John Lithgow, Margo Martindale and Monica Potter)
Not the erasure of double nominee Peter Dinklage for Game of Thrones lol.
There were also Jessica Lange for AHS S1 and Walton Goggins for The Shield. Your point still stands if we ignore Dinklage’s second nomination.July 9, 2020 at 5:10 pm #1203578954
I can understand that but don’t forget that apart from at DGA Succession more or less beat Watchmen in every category they went up against each other in (including at the Critics Choice Awards).
Regina King over Sarah Snook? Apart from CC series, PGA and WGA was there any other place Watchmen lost to Succession tbf?July 9, 2020 at 4:47 pm #1203578931
I actually feel Watchmen will easily take this based on its relevance to the current atmosphere. It even managed to surpass Succession in the year end lists, even if slightly, when more critics got round to completing it. The Program category feels made to honor shows like these. Succession is guaranteed that Drama win though.
