GOT won its first ever acting SAG and it was somehow humiliated?January 19, 2020 at 4:28 pm #1203292996
What happened to the part 7 thread. Multiple threads going at once is confusing.January 16, 2020 at 7:13 pm #1203288536
I am not sure that the academy has ever played by that “intention” rule, nor should they. It is also arguable that the intention was for it to be limited, since the showrunner has no intention to continue it. It has also not been renewed or cancelled.
Seriously wtf is this. Please cite the rule where they determine category placement by “intention.”
Honestly, though, what a pointless argument. We’ll see what happens I guess.January 16, 2020 at 1:32 pm #1203288098
So True Detective wasn’t allowed to be submitted as a limited series initially?
It’s not that it wasn’t allowed, it’s that, at that time, the rules regarding the drama/limited split were less defined and, in fact, the term “limited series” did not yet exist.
Honestly, it’s hilarious that forum posters here will work themselves into a frenzy counting minutes of screentime for actors in order to determine “category fraud” but are somehow trying to justify what is clearly a limited series within the Emmy definition competing in an allegedly less competitive category.
At a minimum Watchmen is getting Limited Series, Writing, Directing, Actress and a slew of techs. I am not concerned.January 16, 2020 at 9:00 am #1203287726
This show is lucky that there is so much space in the comedy categories this year.January 16, 2020 at 8:58 am #1203287722
Well let’s hope it can expand on its single Emmy nomination for the second season.
Obviously it’s not a particularly popular show but it seems to have gained some cache in the industry within the last year so I would love to see it show up somewhere randomly below the line like cinematography, picture editing, or sound.
Of course it deserves much more but major category nominations are not really on the table here, unfortunately. Fincher should easily be getting into directing.January 16, 2020 at 8:55 am #1203287714
I think that if it is a limited series then it should compete as such.
I don’t anticipate the category change having a negative effect on its awards chances, in fact, I think the opposite.January 15, 2020 at 4:22 pm #1203286959
I didn’t know it was possibly going Limited. I wouldn’t be mad, the material was terrific and I don’t want them to ruin it with a possibly uninspired 2nd season
Anyway, I’m still rooting for King
Oh, me too. I am definitely rooting for King this year I just thought you had heard differently regarding the category placement. I have been saying since early on that this was going to end up in Limited but consensus still seems to have it Drama.January 15, 2020 at 3:37 pm #1203286929
So Regina just cancelled Olivia Colman’s sweep. I really hope she eventually gets the nom for her fantastic work on Watchmen
Huh? I feel like the comment below directly contradicts that. This is what I have been saying all along…
“That’s a good question and we’re talking about that,” Bloys told THR. “Originally, my hope was it would have been an ongoing series but where Damon is thinking about it, I think maybe it’s more like a Fargo where it comes back completely different.”January 14, 2020 at 6:56 pm #1203284877
There’s also Curb Your Enthusiasm. I think it will be nominated.
I don’t think it’s ever missed which is pretty impressive.
Fair point on Silicon Valley/Transparent but SV won’t be trying to come back from a major controversy. Don’t get me wrong I don’t expect it to catch the zeitgest or anything but given the dearth of options I think it still has enough consolidated fans from back when it was more popular that, in such a weak year, it should be just enough.January 14, 2020 at 9:43 am #1203283820
Really strong opening pair.
Sort of surprised that this got such a lukewarm critical response but it feels like something that audiences will respond to if they discover it. It’s not necessarily re-inventing the wheel (yet) but feels like a very well crafted entry into this popular genre.
If this actually pulls decent ratings, I could see it making an Emmy impact. I feel like the chatter around this was that it was going drama but it feels more like a limited series, especially since its based on a novel.
The acting from Bateman/Mendehlson and also Nicholson in a smaller part would all be worthy contenders. I thought Bateman’s direction was strong as well and, famously, is popular with Emmy voters. If it goes drama, he will be competing against himself, though, which may cause some splitting/confusion.
Excited to see what Erivo brings to the story next week.
