BTS troubles on The Chi. Lena Waithe looks like she’s culpable in Jason Mitchell’s recent dismissal from the show for sexual harassment. The season two showrunner said that everybody knew what Mitchell was doing and Showtime, Fox 21, and Waithe all looked the other way until they couldn’t.May 28, 2019 at 4:32 pm #1202914137
2 things I don’t understand.
1. Did I miss the big Russian Doll/Natasha Lyonne craze when it came out? Why of all the new shows is this the one people are so confident in making it in Series and Actress? Why it and not say Dead to Me/Christina Applegate which just hit recently with more buzz? Or Flebag/Phoebe which is getting a ton of heat for it’s season 2 among industry types?
2. Glow support was super soft last year with Brie/Macron missing. Now she is predicted to make it in with less heat behind the show? Hmmmmmm.
Yes, you very much missed the Russian Doll buzz explosion earlier this year. It has a Metacritic score 20 points higher than Dead to Me and has inspired much more in the way of critical discussion/online ink.
I’d say in terms of comedy priorities for Netflix, Dead to Me is probably behind Russian Doll, GLOW, and The Kominsky Method.
As far as Fleabag, just for me personally, I’m not convinced that many people outside TV critics (who don’t Emmy vote) are watching. It’s a very small, very niche show on a platform without the market penetration or award history of Netflix; in addition, the show has to share attention with an already award-dominant comedy in Maisel. Would voters go for two originals from Amazon when Netflix, FX, HBO, etc. all have multiple contenders?
I think at absolute best, it gets in writing and maybe one supporting category.April 26, 2019 at 11:58 am #1202868280
I currently have the same 5 locks. My 6th spot is Succession because of the surprisingly good guild performance and my 7th spot is Bodyguard because of the strong buzz and how binge-watchable it is.
Homecoming had some negative headlines and Pose is a niche show with low viewership. However, could either of them perhaps replace This is Us? I feel like it’s a bit on shaky grounds.
If we’re talking Live + Same Day and Live + 3 numbers, Pose has higher ratings than Killing Eve and Succession.April 24, 2019 at 3:19 pm #1202865279
I am sorry but why exactly is Fosse/Verdon in second place in our odds? The show has zero buzz (it’s very close to getting that 0.0 rating, though so did Patrick Melrose), the reviews weren’t that great, and the field is starting to get very crowded. I’m not saying it won’t make the lineup (though that’s what I am predicting), but it really shouldn’t be that high.
It doesn’t have much buzz, but this isn’t correct. This week it got a 0.13 in the demo. A 0.0 is a 0.04 and below.April 16, 2019 at 10:42 pm #1202856090
Does anybody here actually watch Mom? Is Janney good enough to explain all of this Emmy love?
I’m a casual fan who mostly watches in syndication, but yes, Janney is excellent and gets meaty material that she consistently kills.
Faris has been a worthy nominee for years.April 13, 2019 at 8:43 am #1202851327

I loved the premiere. While it definitely felt a little different than season 1, and I couldn’t even put my finger on why, I didn’t think it was worse. This is an ongoing series, and I am completely ok with some general structures getting repeated. This is a show about irrational obsession, it makes complete sense to me that these characters would constantly be circling each other for a while. Comer and Oh were both great, I actually think this episode may be the best Oh has been on the show. It seems like last season we were only really scratching the surface of her character, and after the events of s1 finale we’re going to be going even deeper, so if she wins for this season I’ll be happy it was this one and not the first.
There’s zero stakes to that, though. Neither Eve nor Villanelle will ever be killed or written off before (maybe) the series finale and the show has made every supporting character wholly expendable, so nothing outside of Eve/Villanelle really matters and nothing is going to disrupt Eve/Villanelle. It’s rickety as hell storytelling that can only lead to diminishing returns.April 6, 2019 at 12:35 pm #1202842410
It was her first time competing in lead and she’s gotten in Supporting not once, not twice but three times. It’s her final season, it’s Game of Thrones, she’s the mother of dragons. In my opinion, there is absolutely no way Jodie Comer is more likely to receive an emmy nomination before Emilia Clarke.
Comer is still heavily overshadowed by Oh. I, for one, don’t take her character seriously. It’s very frivolous and Sandra Oh deserved to beat her everywhere, contrary to what this site believes.
I also don’t think Killing Eve is in the top three at all. Ozark, Better Call Saul and Game of Thrones are ahead. I would also place Succession and This Is Us ahead of it, even though the former’s lack of popularity may be concerning.
Oh’s performance is good, but any number of actresses could’ve played her role well, whereas Comer’s character has a lot more specificity and degree of difficulty. Oh’s gotten so many accolades because she’s been around for a long time, she’s the most recognizable face in a buzzy show, and this is her first series regular television role since Grey’s.March 26, 2019 at 6:49 pm #1202830605
Molly Shannon should win Supporting Actress in a Comedy for The Other Two. Her performance in the ninth episode (“Chase Drops His First Album”) was incredible. It’s a dramatic turn for what was a fairly lightweight character up until that point, but she has comedic moments in the episode and her big scene is such a knockout punch.February 23, 2019 at 9:48 pm #1202787024
Confirmed with who exactly? Because that is not what Netflix told us. We’re not changing it until they specifically tell us to do otherwise.
The show was renewed as an anthology called The Haunting. Season two will be The Haunting of Bly Manor, based on The Turn of the Screw. There’s no confirmation whether any actors from season one will be featured, but it’ll be all new characters.February 18, 2019 at 7:51 pm #1202781004
Poor Bradley. He worked his ass off for two years improving his voice and learning how to sing to play this musician role, only to watch someone who didn’t even bother and lipsynched his musician role take the trophy home sunday night.
I guess Hollywood Foreign Press dictates Oscar winners nowadays, regardless of how undeserving their performances are.
The lip syncing isn’t the problem with Malek’s performance. That whole issue is a no-win for him because if he sang, he’d be dragged for not being Freddie Mercury and when he didn’t, he’s dragged because people think it took away from his performance.
His problem was poor emoting during the musical performances. Cotillard was helped by lip syncing to less familiar songs than Malek from a performer less revered by the mainstream media than Mercury, but she was still able to connect with the music much better than he did.February 14, 2019 at 8:24 pm #1202776884
I just watched If Beale Street Could Talk and now I can’t believe all the Regina King hate on this forum. I thought she was fantastic, and why is everyone saying she did nothing? That’s preposterous! She’s going to make a great winner and I don’t think anyone stands a chance of beating her.
She’s a black woman who isn’t Viola Davis.
Why is Regina King still the frontrunner just because she won the Golden Globe and the Critics Choice Award?! Those are not industry awards. Nobody’s really talking about her for almost a month, (I mean, on award shows – that’s why she goes everywhere to present other people with their awards, just to keep herself alive in the conversations), her movie’s not that strong and she was completely shut out of the two biggest precursor awards – SAG and BAFTA. SAG doesn’t mean anything for this category this year because it went to someone who’s not even nominated so it’s only logical that Rachel Weisz is really the frontrunner now, winning the award that shares the largest number of voters with the AMPAS – BAFTA, with Marina de Tavira actually being the dark horse because of Roma’s popularity. Weisz is also not going to split votes with Emma Stone because she’s obviously the stronger performer after her BAFTA win. It’s a shame if neither Olivia, Rachel nor Emma from The Favourite don’t get recognized, and considering the fact that Olivia doesn’t really have a chance against Glenn Close, Rachel Weisz is actually the one that has the strongest chance of winning an acting Oscar for The Favourite, which is something that movie deserves so, so, sooo muchhh.
LOL @ SAG suddenly not counting this year. If Weisz is as strong as you say, she would’ve been able to beat a performance in a horror movie by someone who isn’t an award darling, hadn’t won anything major this season, and didn’t get in at the Oscars. And if she were that much stronger than Stone, why didn’t she win anything before BAFTA?
