Speaker of Peele, his Twilight Zone is just terrible television.
I would hardly call The Twilight Zone “his”. Yes, he hosts and executive produces, but he only has a story credit on one episode (which was already a remake of a classic episode), so I don’t think it would quite be fair to cite that show as a fault of his writing when he’s really done no writing for it.March 28, 2020 at 7:26 pm #1203398877
Elisabeth Moss is inches away from a win. None of her film projects have really been awards-geared, but as soon as she’s in something that lands with the Academy, that Oscar will be in her hands before you can say Scientology.March 28, 2020 at 2:28 pm #1203398563

I hope they release them earlier. I want to be able to cement my predictions for writing and directing without all the question marks of how much and who each show will submit.March 27, 2020 at 12:21 pm #1203397288
I don’t mean to be a contrarian in this case, but why did this happen?
All this COVID-19 stuff has made it much more difficult for shows to finish up production. Shows like One Day at a Time and Genius will likely have to postpone part or all of their seasons just because there’s no way to film right now, and even shows that have finished may be having issues finishing post-production because people can’t leave their houses to work together on things.
Shows will have to keep their before-June premiere dates, but now they have an extra month to get the rest of their hanging episodes out (or made available to Emmy voters). I wouldn’t be surprised if some weekly-airing shows (like say The Third Day or Defending Jacob) had hiatuses of a few weeks before they air the last few episodes of the season just due to these issues making the editing and post-production process longer.March 27, 2020 at 10:30 am #1203397116
I never spend time on the music forums lmao but just wanted to drop in here that I wouldn’t have considered myself even close to a Dua Lipa fan before, but I am loving this album. Mixes retro with modern sound in a super cool and catchy way. Every song feels unique and memorable in a different way.
Great job, Dula Peep! <3March 27, 2020 at 10:11 am #1203397090
I know that Kudrow is currently supporting for Space Force, but if she somehow ends up in guest, we could have an entire guest category just made up of three people.
Lisa Kudrow in The Good Place
Lisa Kudrow in Space Force
Maya Rudolph in The Good Place
Maya Rudolph in Saturday Night Live
Phoebe Waller-Bridge in Run
Phoebe Waller-Bridge in Saturday Night LiveMarch 27, 2020 at 10:07 am #1203397083
Could the rule allowing for hanging episodes in limited series make Genius a player again? I guess it all depends on when they’re able to start production again, but now they have an extra month to get those other episodes out.March 27, 2020 at 10:04 am #1203397078
I don’t think it’s quite that the season will be more Villanelle-focused, I just think it’s that the producers of the show now know that most people are watching for her. I still expect Oh and Comer to have fairly equal roles, but when marketing, they know that the Villanelle character is the one who will get people excited and buzzing on social media. Funny how Oh was originally the main pull for the show in season one and now it’s completely switched.March 27, 2020 at 9:06 am #1203396983
This looks great! As someone who enjoyed season two, I’m very excited! Jodie Comer is definitely returning to a nomination, and we’ll have to see the performance, but I doubt Oh is very far off. I still think this could hold its writing streak as well.March 26, 2020 at 7:51 pm #1203396224
Oh and Felicity Jones too.March 26, 2020 at 7:45 pm #1203396218
I agree about Kidman #2. I almost feel bad for her, how thirsty she’s been for the past few years with zero returns. I mean, she was trying SO hard with Destroyer, Boy Erased, and Bombshell and got zip zilch for all of them (despite probably being in the five runners-up for Destroyer and Bombshell at least).
Steve Carell absolutely as well. Vice, The Big Short, Beautiful Boy, Last Flag Flying, Battle of the Sexes, Welcome to Marwen, and Foxcatcher all REEK of Oscars thirst. But no one seems to have told him that he’s kind of an awful dramatic actor, so.
I almost hate to say it because of how much I love her, but Rosamund Pike seems to maybe be inching in this direction as well. Wouldn’t really put her here just yet, A United Kingdom, A Private War, and Radioactive all seem to point to an unfortunate trend starting to grow.
I know this is exactly the opposite of the question, but I also really respect how un-thirsty Emily Blunt has always been. I’m sure she’d love to be Oscar-nominated, but she never chooses super baity roles. A Quiet Place, The Girl on the Train, Mary Poppins Returns, and Into the Woods were all crazy different projects where she did so so amazing, and I think she got decent enough awards attention from all of those because she really just made every one her own.
