You guys think Nicole is going somewhere? Even IF her work on The Undoing gets overlooked (simply because it will have aired so long ago), she is gonna be right back in front and centre with her work in Nine Perfect Strangers. She’s already sent in which picture they’ll show when they announce her nomination.
I’ve only just realised that Evan Peters will be in Mare of Easttown. Give him the supporting actor Emmy. Why he isn’t a multiple nominee at this point is so ridiculous. He was win worthy in Murder House, Hotel and Cult!April 4, 2021 at 7:09 pm #1204177172
Reese Witherspoon deserves an apology win for her treatment at the 2020 Emmys. I’d be very happy with a win from either Reese or Jennifer in lead and Julianna in supporting.March 20, 2021 at 4:56 pm #1204147637
How are we feeling about the possibility of Jennifer and Reese getting in this time? I imagine the latter will be determined to get her dues after how badly they disrespected her last year. She deserves to win as an apology for what they did to her.March 17, 2021 at 1:38 pm #1204141415
There’s no submitting Lead/Supporting at the Oscars. Voters are free to choose the category they want to nominate performance in for themselves.
I had no idea! Thank you for this info. That’s even more crazy then, that voters actually watched Rooney Mara and ticked her off in supporting. I also wonder how many actors have missed out on nominations due to vote splitting themselves over both categories?March 15, 2021 at 3:15 pm #1204136484
Felicity Huffman or Marc Cherry probably chose “Bang” because that was the most buzzed about episode in season 3. I really think that Laurie Metcalf would have won the Emmy if “Bang” were her submission instead of the season opener. I remember hearing that Marc Cherry had his hands in the selection of the Emmy submissions.
I know I’m almost a year late in relying to this but…Laurie Metcalf wasn’t submitted for “Bang”????? She would have been a worthy LEAD actress nominee with that episode!March 9, 2021 at 6:18 pm #1204102318
In terms of actors who haven’t been nominated yet by the Oscars but have the respect, visibility and support behind them: I could see Sarah Paulson, Shailene Woodley and Ana de Armas getting nominated and winning very soon.
Actors who have been nominated and have been overlooked: Amy Adams, Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper and Margot Robbie.
Actor whenever Tom Cruise decides that he wants an Oscar, they should give him it for whatever role he takes. The man has been at the top of the profession 3 decades with no win.March 1, 2021 at 3:33 pm #1204075142
Disney will be buying Netflix soon enough 🤫.
Is this the least rewarded Globes outing for HBO? They best get to work and order that third season of Big Little Lies!February 16, 2021 at 2:06 pm #1204045053
It’s strange because audiences all tend to roll their eyes and complain about about remakes/reboots/prequels. Yet it’s all we seem to be seeing. But I’d say that’s more on the movie side. That said, this actually sounds really cool!February 9, 2021 at 3:46 am #1204032519
Why are so many people convinced that Elizabeth Olsen can’t win for a “Marvel show”? Disney+ received a warm awards body reception to The Mandalorian and WandaVision is massively popular already- it’s only going to get more popular as word of mouth continues. Marvel actors don’t receive their dues for superhero movies, sure, but television is a very different beast when it comes to rewarding genre projects nowadays- American Horror Story, Watchmen, GOT etc.
Olsen and Bettany are brilliant on their show, effortlessly switching from light material, to tragic AND nailing the decade-acting-style the sitcom format calls for. He will obviously campaign lead, but a case could be made for Bettany in supporting. Olsen is a more clear lead, at least so far.
Also, there were comments on the supporting actress thread, theorising the irony that Gugu Mbatha Raw will likely be nominated opposite Julianna Margulies. Why would Olsen be victim to the Marvel syndrome but Mbatha Raw wouldn’t?
Olsen deserves to be in the race.February 5, 2021 at 5:57 am #1204024621
Kidman got nominated by SAG as well. Her peers. Actors know what they are watching in a performance, and Kidman was great in her role.You gonna go on the SAG thread and complain about SAG being embarrassing and not knowing what good acting is for nominating Kidman? LOL! She’s always good/great. You are being overdramatic. Kidman got Globe an SAG nods because lots of people think she gave a great performance. It’s not that deep. Just say you didn’t like her performance and keep it moving, instead of pretending like you are a world renowned acting coach, who TRULY knows what great acting is, as opposed to the thousands of actual professional actors in SAG who nominated Kidman for her performance in The Undoing.
Exactly! No one is disputing the fact it’s unfair that Michaela Coel got snubbed, she deserved to be nominated and it’s great that so many people were invested in her getting due praise.
Why some have decided to trash Nicole Kidman as a result is just random. “Because she doesn’t deserve it” is looking to be the popular line…evidently, considering she got nominated (repeatedly), she does deserve it. Seeing a lot of “She just played Celeste for the 1000th time again”, when this is her first television role since she last played Celeste? And if a character has similarities to a previous role an actors played, how does that equate to her performance being “lesser”? Great work is great work. Doesn’t matter if it’s a similar character type.
And when are you all ready to get to the biggest snub of this awards season? LET’S TALK ABOUT REESE.February 5, 2021 at 4:53 am #1204024504
I have seen all of the nominees and they were all excellent. Michaela Coel deserved a nomination, among others who were shut out. Nicole Kidman, whether you like it or not, deserved her nomination for giving yet another amazing performance. You don’t agree, that’s fine!
The power of Nicole and HBO have people targeting Lily Collins? I think people just being petty and bored is why Lily Collins is getting brought into it. And it’s pathetic.February 4, 2021 at 12:21 am #1204019827
Last ditch effort:
Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon.February 3, 2021 at 9:49 pm #1204019709
I don’t like to see people taking a dump on Nicole Kidman for her deserved nomination.
If it was someone you didn’t know giving the performance she gave on The Undoing, you would be calling it blasphemy if she got snubbed. Nicole isn’t going anywhere. She’s been nominated 5 consecutive years now (is this a performer record??) She will be announced next year too for Nine Perfect Strangers.
The outrage at Coel and IMDY being snubbed is wholly justified. What the hell were they thinking??? But The Undoing and Nicole are not the problem there. I suppose the silver lining in this unfortunate snub is that Michaela Coel is only going to be more celebrated and respected for her talent, more awareness and visibility will be directed to her work and as a result, demand for more and more stories from black writers and performers will be sought out.
I’m embarrassed to say this, but if it were any other year, I would have rolled my eyes if someone pointed out how white the line up was, but in 2021 it’s just saddening to see so many incredible performers of colour being ignored- especially when there are many deserving, acclaimed and high profile performances right now with non white actors. The Globes are a populist awards show, nothing wrong with that; but there are popular black/mixed/Asian performers and there’s a lot wrong with ignoring their work.
She got the Emmy nomination, which must be the ultimate win (besides winning) but I thought Kerry Washington was fantastic in Little Fires Everywhere. She and Reese Witherspoon should have both been collecting trophies for the show. I’m sad their work on that series has been overlooked critically.
Genuinely surprised at the Paul Mescal snub. A ‘young discovery who has a meteoric rise to popularity in a massive show’ narrative is one they love to reward. They obviously liked the show. I would have thought he and Nick Robinson were their ideal nominees alongside Grant and Ruffalo. Very surprising.
Olivia Colman, Sacha Baron Cohen and Anya Taylor Joy giving us Brits some double representation. Very cool indeed!February 2, 2021 at 11:22 pm #1204015744
I think Homecoming is perfect- both seasons. I definitely missed Roberts but I felt Alvarez seamlessly took over from Esmail in the directing department. The shows distinct and unique tone must have been challenging to on but I thought he matched Esmail’s look completely.
How both seasons of it didn’t score nominations in every craft department is beyond me. I will never be convinced Roberts didn’t deserve to win. Cannavale deserved to win too.
The HFPA responded very well to it in season 1, I wonder if a few surprise nominations are coming its way tomorrow. You’d think they’d want to hurry and nominate Janelle Monae.
