Can’t believe we were robbed of a Maya Rudolph speech. So happy she won, though.September 17, 2020 at 11:23 am #1203713175
Hard for me to buy a Levy win over Shalhoub – he will already be winning writing and I don’t think his acting is necessarily as respected or considered a standout element of the series. Fleabag was way more of an acting showcase for PWB than SC is for Levy.September 17, 2020 at 8:52 am #1203712592
Probably gonna lost point for predicting Maya Rudolph over Taika in voice over but I really hope she finally wins.September 17, 2020 at 8:46 am #1203712579
I actually would probably go with the pilot? Such a hard choice between the two Watchmen episodes because they are both excellent. I just typically give a little extra credit to pilots because they have the extra work of establishing the look, tone, and feel of the entire series and this particular pilot had such a tough job in establishing this very specific world with fantastical/outlandish elements while keeping it grounded in emotion and reality. That the pilot managed to do all that was very impressive. Also the Tulsa sequences really put it over the edge for me.September 16, 2020 at 10:01 am #1203709945
Checked out the pilot – Swank and Charles turned in some nice work here but the overall episode was pretty bland. From what I understand the rest of the season is more family drama focused and less space focused which seems like a missed opportunity. People looking for a space drama should watch The Expanse instead.September 16, 2020 at 9:58 am #1203709939
Also Hollywood debuted in prime Emmy season and was a top 2 push for Netflix in its category which I highly doubt this will be.
TMS comparisons truly make no sense – that was Apple’s flagship show intended to launch an entire service that they put their full weight behind and featuring huge buzzy stars.
TMS wasn’t well received by critics but it still scored a 61 on metacritic, whereas Ratched is struggling to get out of the high 40s.
This is a flop folks.September 14, 2020 at 12:19 pm #1203705860
This one is just confusing to me – I am honestly surprised the critics responses have been as positive as they are.August 16, 2020 at 2:29 pm #1203649291
Esposito would be such a strange first win for BCS.August 14, 2020 at 12:01 pm #1203645698
Ugh, you’re right, Riley. I had James Cromwell and Giancarlo Esposito up there, but moved up Scott now because I will allow myself to hope-dict him for a while. This is one of my least favorite lineups of the year.
This category is pretty tough tbh. I am going with Esposito given that there is clearly love for him individually, plus the Mandalorian did so well overall but could see it go in any number of directions.
If the Outsider had more support then maybe it’d go to Bateman…been a bit absent from the forums since the nominations so apologies if this has already been discussed but damn did that show underperform. What happened there? HBO stretched too thin or did the finale leave such a sour taste in people’s mouths that they wrote it off altogether?August 4, 2020 at 9:19 pm #1203627252
Someone with more time please dig up the old thread where there were multiple pages of people laughing at my prediction that Gossett Jr. could win. I’ll wait. 🙂August 4, 2020 at 5:04 pm #1203626955
And she wasn’t a campy bitch in the novel either. So what’s your point?
