Am I missing something? Bombshell is 83/100, 1917 is 88/100, and Little Women is 95/100.August 23, 2019 at 5:23 am #1203035933
-POSSIBLE EPISODE SUBMISSION-
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Marc Maron (“Hot Tub Club”)
I love your picks for these submissions! I was just curious why you think Maron (who’s been criminally snubbed and likely will be again) should submit “Hot Tub Club” instead of “Hollywood Homecoming.” I think that episode opens and closes with him and it gives him a lot of material with *SPOILER* the heart attack and its immediate fallout.August 21, 2019 at 4:56 am #1203033029
These 3 won’t split, the race is those 3. O’Hara doesn’t stand a chance, but she’s fourth. Lyonne and Applegate are just happy to be nominated.
Russian Doll got 11 Emmy nominations and 4 TCA nominations (and one win). I think Lyonne is more competitive than “just happy to be nominated.” I don’t think she’ll win, but she’ll take some votes for sure. I just don’t know which dramedy actress will lose the most to her.August 11, 2019 at 4:59 pm #1203019806
I think Goldberg and Chulmsky may have the clearest paths with Borstein and Colman very much able to win. I don’t see a path for the other 4. McKinnon is done. Gilpin’s show is no where. Hinkle is not gonna get past her own co star and Clifford is just too unknown in the States.
Didn’t Ben Mendelsohn win his Emmy when his show was up for only one other nomination? And Allison Janney (x2) when her show was up for nothing else? (I can’t remember if the new system started in 2015 or 2016, so only one of those may be relevant.)
I think the lack of nominations for GLOW was more timing than anything. Netflix released season 2 during the nomination phase of last year, but they held off until closer to voting for season 3. I’m thinking they were confident on getting those noms, and it didn’t pan out because it released so long ago. Season 2 was critically adored, more than season 1, and it got nothing from TCA, who gave it two nominations in 2018. I don’t know if Gilpin will win, but I think she has a better shot than people are saying. She’s one of the three contenders who isn’t vote-splitting and her series is the one people are talking about right now. And Gilpin being the show’s only acting nominee in a stacked category shows that there’s passion for the performance.July 19, 2019 at 7:30 pm #1202985944
So who wins actor and series now? Does Ryan O’Connell pull a Peter Scolari and win after originally missing the nomination? Does State of the Union sweep all three?July 16, 2019 at 3:22 pm #1202979605
Lead Actor has Don Cheadle and Anthony Anderson?July 13, 2019 at 9:26 am #1202973750
Because it’s about the proportional rule where all the comedies now (at least the majority) receive Directing noms for their single camera episodes so there needs to be a multi cam nominee. That’s why last year they forgot to include TBBT’s Directing nod in the first place and then they announced their mistake and put it in. So the finale is a lock for a Directing nod this year.
I really liked the finale, it was the first episode I’d seen in years, but, just to play devil’s advocate, is there a chance another multi-cam gets the nom? If so, what else could get it?July 12, 2019 at 1:19 pm #1202972759
I came to the series late, with all the hype from this site raising my expectations above the top shelf. Even with that, HoHH blew me away. It was marvelous. I really wish it had gotten more of an awards push. I’m still holding out hope for directing and/or writing, but I think if Netflix had campaigned it as a limited series all along and really pushed it, the series, Gugino, Jackson-Cohen, and take your pick for supporting actress (I’d go Pedretti) would all have gotten nominations. I hope Gugino works with Flanagan again soon.July 11, 2019 at 7:28 am #1202970625
Emilia Clarke isn’t going to miss this is the best she’s ever been on the show.
Clarke’s big moments all felt like acting this season. I thought “Wow, she is really working to contort her face through an array of emotions.” It was always Emilia Clarke in those moments, not Daenerys Targaryen. I never thought that with Gwendoline Christie or Maisie Williams.
That said, I could still see Clarke getting in, but I don’t get all the praise she’s getting.July 9, 2019 at 2:48 pm #1202968393
I feel like Veep kind of lacked buzz this year, not to mention that I am predicting the whitest Emmys ever, so I really want to slot Kenan Thompson back in.
Is this where someone mentions that Tituss Burgess has never missed for UKS? With the poor showing for UKS last year, he definitely could have been one of the ones that would have been pushed out, but he’s never missed before, so I think he’s got more of a chance than Kenan. UKS seemed to have a warmer reception this year compared to last as well. Plus the finale bump. The finale of Tina Fey’s last series got the scene stealing supporting role nominated after a miss, and Tituss hasn’t missed yet.July 8, 2019 at 7:20 pm #1202966865
There aren’t many people who are guest eligible for this season. Cary Elwes and Brett Gelman were both in four episodes, so they’ll have to compete in supporting.
Other than complete nonentities, like Officers Powell and Callahan and Ted Wheeler, there are really only four:
Sean Astin as Bob Newby
Randy Havens as Scott Clark
Paul Reiser as Dr. Owens
Gabriella Pizzolo as Suzie
Of all of those, Havens is the most deserving, but even he doesn’t have much to do. And I may be biased there. I have a soft spot for actors who are able to exude such warmth with limited material, and Havens does that in every scene. It reminds me of Linus Roache (Thomas Wayne) in Batman Begins. Still, they’re all single-scene appearances. Reiser just walks. Astin only giggles. Pizzolo has the most memorable scene of the four. I don’t see much of a chance for any of them, name recognition or no.June 22, 2019 at 11:58 am #1202948110
I just finished The Haunting of Hill House, and I loved it. What was Netflix thinking campaigning this as a drama series? Would they have left it in drama if the series had gained any traction? I’m afraid the late switch has kept it from gaining momentum in the limited series race, so it will get nothing. It deserves to be a major contender in a number of above and below the line categories.June 14, 2019 at 4:54 pm #1202938403
I doubt that Game of Thrones gets a nomination. It got zero nominations last year and this season is significantly worse than the mediocre seventh season. Maybe one actor gets a nomination (Clarke/ Dinklage) but the show isn’t getting into Programme/ Drama.
Am I missing something? Where did the love for Clarke’s acting come from? When I think of her big moments, like the final shot of “The Last of the Starks” or when she’s going mad on Drogon’s back in “The Bells,” I don’t think great acting. I think she’s trying hard to sell a bad script, but she’s still visibly trying hard. All her big moments felt like acting rather than a character who was doing something. Though maybe that’s just me.June 11, 2019 at 4:26 am #1202932515
To All the Boys I Loved Before is on the ballot for Music Supervision but not anywhere else. Odd. Netflix has an aversion to submitting their films, but like Riley said in another thread, I feel like that one could have gotten in on name recognition.
