As per usual, Globe noms all over the place. A few positives:
-Succession in series and picking up Cox in the acting races. I would love to see this momentum roll through to SAG.
-Rami Malek who is having an excellent season.
-Andrew Scott getting Emmy redemption.
-Full cast of Unbelievable gets nominations.
Biggest disappointments are probably lack of Watchmen (especially Regina King) and Josh O’Connor in supporting. I still think both could potentially show up at Emmys.December 8, 2019 at 11:26 am #1203224149
Snook is on the board! Kind of crazy but I am doing a NGNG prediction for her at the Globes.
Happy to see Watchmen continue to do well and to see an animated nod for Undone.
Overall, these are pretty uninspired for an alleged critics group. Many of the highest rated shows and best regarded performances are missing in favor of things like “Evil” and “The Unicorn.”
No Josh O’Connor in supporting is disappointing.
Mom? Sometimes I forget that this is the same group that was obsessed with TBBT for years.December 8, 2019 at 11:17 am #1203224094
At least we have our first actor on the board with nominations from two separate groups.December 7, 2019 at 12:33 pm #1203221838
Kidding & SMILF had very little buzz as well and still made it. OBAGICF at least has the Dunst factor, which Kidding and SMILF didn’t even have.
Showtime is also often over-represented here so I am always keeping that in mind when making Globes predictions. They love to pair comedy series and comedy actress nominations so Dunst + Series seems pretty plausible to me.December 7, 2019 at 12:26 pm #1203221828
All I want is just one awards season where Regina King isn’t championed for a performance that wouldn’t even be on the radar if it was given by anyone else but because it’s her is heralded as some kind of nuanced masterwork
Not here for this King disrespect.December 6, 2019 at 6:49 pm #1203220682
What is this nonsense about King not being a praised aspect of Watchmen? I suggest you go back and actually read the reviews. She could easily win.December 6, 2019 at 6:41 pm #1203220674
He might not win in Supporting, while in Guest he is probably a lock to get the Emmy.
I mean, maybe, but that’s just speculation.
If we are just speculating we can say that his going supporting allows a likely additional guest acting nomination, boosting Netflix’s total nomination count, which they are desperate to jack up in order to prove their supremacy to HBO.December 5, 2019 at 3:17 pm #1203219110
Overall some great mentions here, especially for some of the more under-discussed shows like Mindhunter, What We Do in the Shadows, and, especially, an absolutely fantastic episode of Mr. Robot. Really happy to see Watchmen well represented as well. All four of these shows deserve writing mentions at the Emmys.
Succession, of course, goes without saying. I expect this to be a perennial in the writing category for the foreseeable future.
The episodic choices are often somewhat wonky but still surprised that they went with the moon landing episode of the Crown. I thought it was pretty universally acknowledged that Aberfan and Tywysog Cymru were the standouts.
Would have loved to see Undone show up in the animated field instead of three Simpsons episodes.
In terms of big Emmy contenders, nothing for BLL or Stranger Things. Apple+ only shows up for a TV movie (presumably) that no one has heard of.
Also happy to see the resurgent third season of True Detective recognized.November 29, 2019 at 11:29 am #1203208108
Zero chance O’Conner goes guest. He is basically the second most prominent in all of the marketing materials after Coleman and that pretty much bears out in his screentime over the course of the season (despite the episode count).
I bet that they submit Lithgow (and he gets nominated) for his thirty second cameo, though.November 23, 2019 at 7:56 am #1203198531
I doubt AHS can go back to limited now that it’s been transitioned over to drama.November 18, 2019 at 8:55 pm #1203186093
for the record, Malek wasn’t “Oscar winner Rami Malek” at the time, he was the guy from Mr. Robot, and Mr. Robot was that show that everybody watched season 1 of.
I agree though that Comer could for sure miss
Yes, I know that but he won the Oscar only a few years later and completely swept. Clearly he was pretty popular.November 18, 2019 at 11:32 am #1203185275
Y’all said the same thing about Tatiana Maslany last year and she returned, even after a year break. When you are that popular, you are not dropped until your show ends.
And btw I think Killing Eve also returns in Series. I know most of you here don’t appreciate the show but I don’t see any reasons to believe (until we actually see the season) that it will be dropped when it did well in noms this year (yes in a weak year, but still, it’s no Pose).
Sure, it’s possible but there are a lot of contenders, at least six of which I feel are stronger right now.
Also, popular winners are still dropped. Was Oscar winner Rami Malek not popular? What about Jim Parsons? Julianna Margulies? Were they not popular?
Next year’s drama race is not going to even remotely resemble this years so I am not being precious about holding on to anything.
Unlike some posters, I am not speaking in definites. She definitely could make it in – just doesn’t make sense to consider her a lock at this stage.November 18, 2019 at 11:23 am #1203185264
Episodes don’t matter so the discussion is moot tbh.
