FairWeatherAffair replied to the topic What possible Emmy nominations would make you happiest? in the forum Television 4 days ago
All six nominees in Drama Supporting Actress are Rhea Seehorn for Better Call Saul.
It’s not, but the representation-starved (whom are rightfully angry) populations of the internet would have you believe otherwise; the show ultimately could not meet its ambitions with craft.
Will & Grace has the ability to pull interesting performances from its cast (which is not always a good thing), but the writing is so atrocious that i…[Read more]
No, there aren’t. And don’t I wish there were; Lord knows Mom is the closest we have, but that’s not a “great” program.
By the way, it’s Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series; why are we instituting quotas? Awards are always reflective of what’s in and what’s out; like Riley said, many creators largely abandoned the multi-cam format…[Read more]

Endgame and Gloria Bell. I am generally not sold on Lelio’s work. And (knowing full well that this won’t make me any new friends on these forums), I am not at all a fan of Booksmart, though wouldn’t call it “worst of the decade.”
High Life is a solid film from an often-great director, but I think I see it as a lesser Denis work.

Not sure how you nominate some of the best films of the decade alongside some of the worst, but… happy to see Ash Is Purest White and Transit make the final list!
Aster is really building a great case against himself as one of the worst working directors with this filmography. Visually gross and flat and unappealing, trite and offensive writing galore — I didn’t think it possible, but he made a worse film than Hereditary.
Since we are already playing fantasy by pretending we have ballots, or that we would be able to cover this many fields, I am going to go ahead and fix placements and category definitions as I see fit. Apologies in advance.

God, I am so close to being excited for this. Maybe Fincher will finally pull a performance out of Oldman that I actually give a damn about.
FairWeatherAffair replied to the topic Jim Carrey is one of the greatest actors in the last 50 years. I'll tell you why in the forum Movies 1 week ago
He has never given a great performance, but he has certainly given a bad performance. I guess I disagree with you.
And I won’t tell you why.
Surprisingly, I enjoy most of these performances! Yay, for once! Can you guess which ones I don’t care for?
Ignoring the tired derogatory (which does not even apply – I’m not a Stalinist), I do find myself laughing at this. Yes, I am a socialist.
Can you blame me, Mister? I am really not sure how anyone can defend capitalism at this point.
FairWeatherAffair replied to the topic Drama Series – Which Emmy Nominated Shows are you Surprised Never Won in the forum Television 1 week, 4 days ago
I don’t know what it is about the energy of this forum lately that has people coming out of the woodwork to slam Mad Men‘s wonderful wins for Drama Series, but I want to go on record as saying the following:
Mad Men should have won eight times in a row. It was always the best show nominated in the category. That was always true, and it is still true.

That’s what happens when you rail hard for these studio tentpole films to constantly be breaking records (and when you care more for digestible storytelling and nostalgia-driven content than for something more eclectic). Eventually, one capitalistic behemoth becomes the only “successful” (whatever that means) studio and all others back out of ev…[Read more]
