BAFTA don’t care about spoilers, they put Daniel Mays as supporting for Line of Duty when he was advertised as lead (I apologise if I have in any way spoiled it for you). A Discovery of Witches won’t get any acting nominations but I think Eve Myles could score Best Actress. Skarsgard may still get a nomination for Best Actor but Pugh is the face of the show so if any one gets a nod, it really is her.
Thank you for answering at least some of my questions, but I still find them very illogical. And do not worry about the spoilers, it is not your fault, but yeah, this was a pretty big one 😀December 7, 2018 at 3:46 am #1202692279
Better Call Saul
The Handmaid’s Tale
I have not seen Succession, but the other four are my favorite dramas, so I am very happy with this nominations.
I think that in Episodic Drama they wanted to spread the will and to to nominate the same dramas, The Handmaid´s Tale is the only one that is part of both categories and I cannot be happier. Very happy about the nomination of Homeland as well. People loved this episode of This is us, it is not surprising, I liked some parts of it.
I love Pose, I have to finish the seasons of The Haunting of Hill House and Homecoming, but in my opinion all of them are far better than Killing Eve, I know that many of you love it, but for me it was lacking, the writing was unbelievable at some point, especially the big death scene that affected Eve in the first half. And I cannot see any thing extraordinary in the performance of Sandra Oh, she is good, but her character behavior is not well developed or explained, also, to ignore the really incredible performance of Jodie Comer that has the better written part and the more demanding role in every single award is inexplicable, so I can see why the writers chose to ignore the show.

Which TV network has the most nominations?
FX which makes me so happy! Then HBO and Amazon… And only after all this Netflix which makes me happy, they need to stop killing their own shows, most of their production only exist for a week, this is so sad…December 6, 2018 at 9:06 am #1202691396
And they are a first-time nominee. Missing the three nominations for The Americans cost me the ground that I gained by predicting the This is Us shutout. Three of my eleventh-hour changes improved my predictions and none of them cost me, so that is good. Ultimately though, I did worse than the odds overall, which is always super frustrating, so this is a loss. And of course Paul killed it.
Yeah, you are right, with all this emotions I mistook first time nominees with first season shows. This was my first prediction of the Globes, I am at 509 place with 66.67%, it is not bad, but it could have been better. What frustrates me is that I predicted all the snubs that you and many other were predicting: Robin Wright, Kevin Costner, Billy Bob Thornton, Liev Schreiber and The Little Drummer Girl and his entire cast. Bob Odenkirk, J.K. Simmons and Jodie Comer shocked me as well… I also predicted three noms for GLOW when they only like Alison Brie…
And yes, Paul is the best at this game!December 6, 2018 at 6:13 am #1202691013
What I called:
– Maniac shutout
– Dirty John
– Kidding & Bodyguard in series
– The Handmaid’s Tale missing series & supporting actor
– all first-time nominees in drama series
– Jason Bateman being the new Liev Schreider
– Stephan James & Antonio Banderas
Riley, The Americans are at their sixth season 😀December 6, 2018 at 6:05 am #1202690987
Kieran Culkin wasn’t even in the predictions center. I still can’t believe it.
Name-check my friend, name-check. (He’s a past GG-nominee.)
This is an absurd statement, he was nominated before 15 years and he is not an actor that you just name-check, he is pretty much D-list, they obviously loved him.December 6, 2018 at 6:02 am #1202690978
Zero noms for Maniac is a HUGE shocker for me, the biggest one in TV.December 6, 2018 at 6:00 am #1202690973
Well it’s not gonna be the category with Julia Roberts and host Sandra Oh in it. And it won’t be the one with a bunch of new shows with more buzz in it either.
So is Matthew Rhys really gonna win another award while Keri Russell does not? I guess so. Watch out for Richard Madden though.
Yeah, you may be right, it is very sad for Keri, she has the TCA win, but she deserves a big moment form a huge award ceremony as well. Rhys will make me happy as well. The Globes can surprise us sometimes though, they never awarded Malek for Mr. Robot for example. Drama actress will be very unpredictable, Roberts will be their typical choice, Oh will be the choice if they want to make history and promote diversity, Russell if they want to give a huge goodbye kiss to The Americans and Balfe must be awarded at some point, they obviously love her and she is really incredible in season 4 that is still airing right now. Moss already won, so she is the only one without any chance, but she deserves that spot, I am really happy she is here.December 6, 2018 at 5:51 am #1202690950
Claire Foy is the ultimate queen. The fact that she got nominated while Gosling, Chazelle and the movie itself were all snubbed, is incredible!!
It is not that surprising, she was the best part of the movie by far, I am really happy for her, she is an acting Goddess.December 6, 2018 at 5:44 am #1202690892
I told you about The Americans, Mathew and Keri, they have never ignored a show with such higher acclaim. The Americans is going to win one of those three nominations, but I have no idea which one.
I also told you that between Pose and The Haunting of Hill House only one will make it and they are going to ignore the other, but of course I got it wrong and I removed Pose to put THOHH….
I am very happy about Elisabeth Moss and Yvonne Strahovski, I never had any doubts about them, those two performances deserve everything!!!December 4, 2018 at 8:08 am #1202688956
To me, the Critics Choice Awards are the most relevant awards among those with the and name < CRITICS >.
They are not since they are not real critics, they are just an Oscar prediction center.
The critics groups voting now are REALLY important, because they are real and they really cared about films. Many of them have studies cinema culture, so they are not just journalists, also they have watched much more films and that is the best way to learn. They have the real power in the last 10 years, thanks to them Mad Max: Fury Road became such big player, thanks to them Get Out became this enormous player that ended winning best original screenplay. The examples are many. This year they are going to help Colman, Gaga and especially Collette and Hawke. Maybe they are going to push Black Panther, Leave No Trace, Roma, Sorry to bother you, The Hate U Give and some others movies, so they are not ¨unimportant¨, you do not familiar with the game.December 4, 2018 at 7:51 am #1202688951
Glenn Close should’ve won in 2012 for Albert Nobbs. Why the critics did not back her up and instead chose to support Meryl Streep is beyond me. Close did amazingly with what she had to work with. And she looked the part (a woman living as a man) considering that Close has a naturally mannish face. I suppose that the Academy’s belief that Streep was “overdue” for a 3rd Oscar combined with the campaigning techniques of the Weinstein company was what gave Streep the win. The whole notion of the race being being between Streep and Davis was absurd. Close was the one who was truly deserving of the win.
It is pretty obvious that the two best actresses were Mara and Davis, time has proved that since their roles (and movies) are the only memorable and still talked today. And the third was Tilda Swinton for We Need to Talk About Kevin, one of those “nomination phantom” in the sense that many people believe that she was actually nominated (same goes for DiCaprio for Django or Adams for Arrival). The other two great and still unrecognized performances that year were Theron in Young Adult and Olivia Colman in Tyrannosaur, I recommend the last one to all of you who are discovering Colman this year.
I want to clarify that I do not want to rest merit of the performances of Williams, Close and Streep, they are all good, but not the best that year in my opinion.
