Many shows probably do not have a lot of hype because there are so many shows on, and many people are fawning over shows that are currently on and hot at the moment, like Game of Thrones or Veep. I’m personally hoping that shows like Horace and Pete, which showcases fantastic acting gets recognized.
You would think that but there are shows that I hear about all year round. Game of Thrones and Veep are obvious choices, but I also keep hearing about shows like The Americans, The Leftovers, Master of None, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, UnReal, etc. These shows are either untested at the Emmys or ignored, but I hear many more rave reviews about Carrie Coon in The Leftovers than Viola Davis in HTGAWM, or Mads Mikkelsen in Hannibal over Bobby Cannavle in Vinyl. With the Internet and the rise of fan culture, you would think the Emmy voters would be paying more attention to shows and performances like these. Hell, isn’t that the reason Tatiana Maslany got in last year?March 23, 2016 at 10:07 pm #600938
The list we got that year was no where near the list it should have been. Replace Theory of Everything, Imitation Game, and American Sniper with Gone Girl, Nightcrawler, and Calvary for an epic year. Throw Two Days, One Night and The Babbadook in there too.February 24, 2016 at 7:51 pm #218158
It’s a phenomenal film with multiple layers and interpretations that is anchored by an absolutely riveting and star-making performance.February 23, 2016 at 5:38 am #367730
Well Arrested Development is my favorite comedy of all time so….
After that, I’d say Veep is a close second, Silicoln Valley not far beind, then 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The others I either dont watch (Nurse Jackie) or dont care for (Modern Family and Girls)February 22, 2016 at 6:56 pm #217821
Brie Larson did absolutely phenomenal, my third favorite leading female performance of the year, second of all the nominees. But Jacob Tremblay was Room and he was the absolute standout. One of my favorite performances in a long while and by far the best male performance of the year. The fact that both of them were so great speaks to how fantastic Room was when it comes to casting.February 15, 2016 at 9:10 pm #213428
This may be a bit of an unpopular opinion but I kinda prefer the original GoldDerby list, but only for Best Picture. While these picks are awesome for literally every other category, it was hard to see Brooklyn and Ex Machina, both films in my top five, be replaced. I mean, Creed is my #8 film of the year so I’m ecstatic it got in and Big Short is #11 so I liked that too. But Steve Jobs was merely good and I haven’t seen Beasts of No Nation. Replacing The Martian and Star Wars for Creed and Big Short while keeping Brooklyn and Ex Machina would have made this list absolutely phenomenal. But I respect everyone else’s opinions and the list we did get is very strong.February 6, 2016 at 12:23 pm #215463
I picked Tom Cruise because the guy has had a very illustrious career playing multiple famous roles. Sure he mostly does blockbusters but compared to some of the other actors who almost always do big-budget movies, he still always brings it with an intensity. He is often the best part of many of hs movies. Plus, he can play against type (Magnolia) as well as do drama and comedy.September 22, 2015 at 4:17 pm #362318
Yes, they were. Next.
But why? You’re merely giving your opinion without much of a reasoning or justification behind it, which hinders discussion. I thought nearly all of the winners were deserving with only Dinklage being one I would object to, and even then I feel like it was rewarding his work on the previous seasons as well as this one, even if that isn’t particularly fair (and screws Mendhelson who deserved the win more.)
