I just checked that if Yvonne Orji won best supporting actress in comedy , she would be second African American to win category behind Jackee in the 80’s.
And best supporting actor in comedy Robert Guillome in Soap
Jackée Harry won Supporting Actress for 227 in 1987 and Robert Guillaume won Supporting Actor for Soap in 1979.September 17, 2020 at 5:06 pm #1203713774

Nothing was stopping My Heart Will Go On for Record of the Year in 1999, but I suspect that Madonna’s Ray of Light was second.September 15, 2020 at 6:21 pm #1203709110
SNL again – Why?????? Sometimes I think that SNL would benefit going from 90 minutes to maybe 60 minutes.September 15, 2020 at 8:52 am #1203707912

Will & Grace would be a surprise, but a deserving winner.September 13, 2020 at 7:46 pm #1203704439
I am thinking that Phylicia Rashad might take this even though she was more deserving last year for This Is Us. The Guest categories sometimes play catch up.September 12, 2020 at 4:32 pm #1203702065

Remember producers thought Yvonne Strahovski or Ann Dowd would win supporting actress in 2018 with that blatant Moss/Wiley pairing to present the category. They don’t know anything, they just try to make guesses and form the best presenters/winners pairs (Kerry Washington awarding Porter last year).
That was very bad, but this has happened a number of times. I am showing this one even though it is for the Oscars because this was the only clip that I could find. Glenn Close and Michael Douglass (both from Fatal Attraction) presented Supporting Actress at the Oscars in 1988. Anne Archer was a nominee from Fatal Attraction, but the winner ended up being Olympia Dukakis from Moonstruck.
Also, you had Directing in a Drama Series in 1988 at the Emmys where Susan Dey from L.A. Law presented this category and 4 of the nominees were from LA Law and the winner turned out to be St. Elsewhere – Ooops
Also, George Wendt and I believe John Ratzenberger presented Supporting Actress in a Comedy in 1993. Rhea Perlman from Cheers was nominated, but the winner turned out to be Laurie Metcalf from Roseanne.September 11, 2020 at 9:56 pm #1203700051
Trump is pathetic
US president Donald Trump rejected claims he lied to the American people about the threat of coronavirus, as the fallout from his comments to veteran journalist Bob Woodward reverberated on Thursday.
Several interviews between the president and Mr Woodward for the latter’s new book make it appear as if Mr Trump deliberately played down the seriousness of the novel coronavirus, describing the virus as “deadly” to Mr Woodward in the spring at the same time as he was assuring the American public that there was no threat.
“I didn’t lie. We have to be calm, we can’t be panicked,” the president said in a press conference at the White House on Thursday shortly before he left for a campaign event in Michigan.
When it was pointed out to the president that other leaders such as German chancellor Angela Merkel had remained calm but also had warned their citizens about the dangers of coronavirus, Mr Trump replied that Europe was “having breakouts like you’ve never seen before. We have done much, much better than the European Union, ” he said.
