I wouldn’t call Ruth Wilson a fresh face considering how prior to her win for The Affair she had already been previously nominated for a Golden Globe for Jane Eyre and was the principal female character on a multi Emmy nominated drama.
Cool, I would which is why I said it.November 26, 2020 at 7:45 am #1203874967
Did Sandra Oh, Elisabeth Moss, Taraji P. Henson, Ruth Wilson and Claire Danes fit that bill either?
Ruth Wilson, yes. The others obviously not. I didn’t say they exclusively go for fresh faces, only that they often go for them. Ignoring those saying Cuoco, who starred on one of the biggest shows of all time is “fresh” wile Smollett isn’t because of Eve’s Bayou…
Anyway, I was just floating the possibility – no need to get up in arms.November 12, 2020 at 8:17 am #1203831574
LOL we are discussing live ratings in 2020?
Also, people may have been slightly preoccupied with *other things* last week and didn’t feel the urgency to watch an HBO drama on Sunday night. Just a thought.
Not saying it’s some massive hit but I think one can get lost looking too deeply into the tea leaves.
Who knows what happens Emmys-wise but I’d say it has strong chances at the Globes for series, actor, actress, and maybe supporting actor (but those categories are always super weird so who knows).
I agree with whoever previously said that Anya Taylor-Joy and Queen’s Gambit are likely taking actress and series anyway.September 17, 2020 at 5:56 pm #1203714020
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.
