Bimboy, thanks for the list. I thought that group included 4 people – I missed Maureen Stapleton and Paul Newman. It’s a shame Newman didn’t win that Tony.October 30, 2020 at 11:41 am #1203811695
Mark Rylance returning to the category he won 5 years ago would be like underlining that he’s still well liked and that his win wasn’t a fluke. In the last 10 years (sans the most recent one, ofc) Waltz, Bale, Plummer, Ali and Rockwell all returned, while Leto, Simmons and Rylance have yet to do it. I think Rylance will this year and Simmons will at least once in his career. I wouldn’t bet on Leto but weirder things happened.October 30, 2020 at 11:30 am #1203811657
Are character voice-over, narration, performance in Musical/Variety considered “acting”?
Also, an acting Emmy is an Emmy regardless if it’s Primetime, Daytime, or International. So why not count it when considering Triple Crown of Acting awards?
I don’t know about narration but perhaps yes and the other ones are certainly acting awards even if I don’t think, for example, Hugh Jackman or Neil Patrick Harris winning for hosting award shows should count here.
Primetime Emmy is the one that counts. Daytime Emmys are mentioned but with an asterisk. It happens more in EGOT discussion, though. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone counting International Emmy Award for the purpose of Triple Crown of Acting.September 20, 2020 at 10:44 pm #1203724434
72nd Primetime Emmy Awards didn’t change much in terms of Triple Crown of Acting with the exception of Tony winner Billy Crudup being 2/3 on his way after winning an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for “The Morning Show”.September 19, 2020 at 11:49 am #1203717922
Don’t think I’ve ever seen a Bhutanese film. Might go in my watchlist just for the sake of it.
Based on the praise, I’m expecting Mexico to submit Nuevo Orden, India to submit The Disciple, Taiwan to submit Days, and Japan’s probably going to go with Wife of A Spy or Under The Open Sky.
Everything’s still way up in the air for this category though. This is probably the first time I can remember there not even being an inkling as to who has a chance. Isn’t a frontrunner in sight. Usually Cannes and TIFF give an idea, but they were both stinted this year. Other festivals have been leaning towards American and Iranian films this year, but America obviously isn’t eligible, and the Iranian films that are winning aren’t exactly pro-Iran, and I can’t see most of them being submitted.
No idea this year.
“The Hunt” was among the best nominees in this category last decade. I’m interested in watching their next collaboration. 🙂September 6, 2020 at 11:58 am #1203689496

Can’t wait to see how the movie is going to do at this year’s Venice Film Festival. When Blanchett was jury president at Cannes FF they awarded 3 movies that went on to receive Oscar nominations in this category.
You’d think that Paweł Pawlikowski winning Best Director for “Cold War”, in retrospect, paved the way for him to be in the running for Best Director Oscar nomination which he eventually got in that wide open field.
Good on Poland for being the first to submit. That bodes well for the quality of the film. I’m happy to see it in competition in Venice. Małgorzata Szumowska is a great director as well. Fingers crossed.August 5, 2020 at 12:47 pm #1203628240
The Runaway Jury by John Grisham
There’s already a movie, did you know? Who’s gonna be better than Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman?
Check out the BBC version with Charles Dance and Aiden Turner. It’s amazing. It’s a three-parter that came out in 2015. I believe it’s on Amazon Prime.
I had my reservations about the plot but it was a good miniseries. Still believe – unlike with “The Runaway Jury” – it could be a pretty amazing motion picture. The main plus of the miniseries is the fact that it’s (nearly) the same ending as in the book and not play version. The main minus is the fact that the reason to kill other guests was changed and it didn’t make much sense.
I’d go with “Crime and Punishment”. I’m shocked that Russian industry didn’t bring a definitive version of this masterpiece. Could as well be limited series in English.August 5, 2020 at 8:18 am #1203627663
I think it’s the only show that filled all available spots in any Emmy acting category:
Supporting Actor in a Drama Series 1982:
Tauren Blacque as Det. Neal Washington
Michael Conrad as Sgt. Phil Esterhaus* (also won in 1981)
Charles Heid as Officer Andy Renko
Michael Warren as Officer Bobby Hill
Bruce Weitz as Det. Mick Belker
For that alone I think it’s worth checking out if you have an opportunity.August 5, 2020 at 4:20 am #1203627468
Thanks. I hadn’t seen it.August 4, 2020 at 9:54 am #1203626197
A majority of productions is currently shut down due to pandemic. Which shows will air new episodes to compete in the next Emmy eligibity cycle? I know about “The Crown” season 4 being ready for late 2020 but what else, really?
