Last episode of On the Verge (episode 12) should put Julie Delpy in contention for writing and directing.September 13, 2021 at 9:39 am #1204457067
Just finished On the Verge and I loved it, great writing and a fun cast. It’s #5 on Netflix US today with zero marketing so good word of mouth. The last episode is triumphant and has a 8.4 on IMDb and the show has 93% on Rotten Tomatoes audience score. It’s a co production between Netflix and CanalPlus and eligible for all the awards (kind of like Schitts was).
I think Delpy should be in contention for writing and directing and Elisabeth Shue in supporting for portraying an always high on edibles single mom. Worth a watch I would say.September 7, 2021 at 1:08 pm #1204442835
Just watched two episodes of On the Verge and it’s one of the best comedies I’ve seen in years. Super hilarious and has such warm vibes without losing realism. Highly recommend everyone to watch.
Agree I’m on episode 3 and it’s so smartly written and the acting is top notch. Elisabeth Shue plays a character that is always getting high on edibles and it’s hilarious.September 7, 2021 at 7:57 am #1204442213
Canal plus in France took the lead on this for promo but some reviews coming in, like AV Club:
“If you don’t know Delpy’s work outside of the Before trilogy, change that! But also, know you’re in for a real treat. Her writing is full of world-weary humor and her acting, a delicious chaos; together, they bring to mind the acidity of Russian Doll’s Nadia with a side of the neuroticism of Big Little Lies’ Renata.” https://www.avclub.com/hear-ye-hear-ye-impeachment-american-crime-story-is-n-1847596030
On The Verge (created by Julie Delpy) just dropped on Netflix and I don’t remember seeing any pre-release press or reviews for it. Since the show was quite anticipated, I wonder why they decided to just dump it?August 10, 2021 at 12:15 pm #1204390396
I don’t want a new cast 😭August 9, 2021 at 5:20 pm #1204389381
I’m sure they will still hold a vote without a ceremony, they’ll want to show how diverse their nominees are and won’t want to come across as irrelevant by missing a year.July 29, 2021 at 12:16 am #1204368983
I could see it getting renewed for a second season (with new guests arriving at the hotel).July 10, 2021 at 2:24 pm #1204338082
To me Anders role was too minor and almost forgettable. Between Cobra Kai and Search Party, Cobra had like 100 times the audience, also Sarandon has ruffled quite a few feathers by being political. I can see the dilemma though.
I’m going back and forth on predicting her. I’ve narrowed my guest actress predictions down to 6 (Rudolph, Wigg, Taylor-Joy, Anders, Shue, and Sarandon), but since I’m predicting both Cobra Kai and Search Party in series, it’s hard to figure out who from that 6 to drop.July 10, 2021 at 2:12 pm #1204338058
This was really interesting, can you explain your theory on ballot placement?
I’ve been vocal previously about the ballot placement and how it affects voting, which is why I predicted more riskier contenders last year. Mahershala Ali, Yvonne Orji and Jeffrey Wright paid off, but not Hiam Abbass, Milo Ventimiglia, Susan Kelechi Watson and Michael Zegen. Only the two This Is Us actors are eligible again and I’m predicting them once again. In the end, I’ll probably have Ackie, Andoh, Atim, Bailey and Waithe as well. The downside is this year’s shrunken ballot and more limiting choice of contenders, which is why I suspect it will force voters to scroll more pages than usual.July 10, 2021 at 1:44 pm #1204338040
I’m predicting Elisabeth Shue in Guest Actress. Her return was HUGE and connects a lot of the Emmy voters to their youth, she’s also been in the business over 40 years so has the name recognition.
Netflix is behind Cobra Kai. I’m coming around to predicting it for Series, Actor, and Supporting Actor. It just feels like it’s so much more widely-watched than a lot of its competition, and we know Netflix is able to get multiple contenders in at the Emmys.June 29, 2021 at 8:48 am #1204322653
Looks like Netflix’s On the Verge (starring Elisabeth Shue and Julie Delpy) had a sneak preview last night in Paris. I believe Shue is supporting and Delpy is lead.June 21, 2021 at 11:38 pm #1204312198
I also genuinely don’t know what Resident Alien / Syfy were thinking not submitting Linda Hamilton, especially first season without a particularly well known cast outside Tudyk.
completely agree, like on name recognition alone. Do they not submit to save money?June 17, 2021 at 9:52 am #1204304479
Interesting that The Boys didn’t submit Elisabeth Shue for Guest Actress, she made a memorable return.
Also, Resident Alien didn’t submit Linda Hamilton who was in just under half the episodes.
