Can’t wait for two-time Emmy winner, Matthew Rhys. Now all we need is Keri Russell to sign on to a new drama and win her overdue Emmy.
But seriously, I need Russell to sign on to something soon lol.November 15, 2019 at 6:12 am #1203180580

That top 5 looks like you literally tried putting together the most unlikely lineup and called it a day lolNovember 14, 2019 at 12:20 pm #1203179478
The Crown, easily. Westworld hasn’t aged very well for me lol. I still liked season 1 though.November 14, 2019 at 11:37 am #1203179426
Nah, they just like Ozark. It’s not because it reminds them of another show or anything, they just like it. Most people do, tbh. I remember watching it and loving it and being surprised critics didn’t feel the same way.
A show doesn’t win multiple Emmys because it reminded voters of another show lol.November 14, 2019 at 7:20 am #1203179126
Since everyone seems to be doing it, here’s my take on Drama Actress as of right now:
Locks – Olivia Colman, Nicole Kidman, and Elisabeth Moss
Near locks – Jodie Comer (just needs to continue to have great material and for the season to be acclaimed)
In the hunt – Reese Witherspoon (big star, producer, got in for the first season, Emmy’s love the show, possible name check), Sandra Oh (Emmy’s love her even if they’ve never given her a win), Jennifer Aniston (huge star, in a show the industry will probably love, has been everywhere recently, will most likely campaign for it, Globes could get her started), Mandy Moore (acting branch loves the show, fresh of her first nomination, might have her most baity material since season 2), Evan Rachel Wood (has always gotten in, could see a scenario where she misses if the season disappoints), and Laura Linney (Emmy darling in a show the Emmy’s seem to like, fresh off a nomination, show could premiere closer to the voting deadline, Bateman(?) said she’ll have baity material)
On the outside, could surprise, wouldn’t count them out – Viola Davis (last season so maybe a farewell nomination but could easily see her missing to contenders in stronger shows considering she’s missed in this category before when it was competitive, Sarah Snook (show will most likely be really strong, but will it be strong enough to carry her to a nomination, will probably know more after the winter awards/guilds run)
Long shots – Claire Danes (they seem to be done with the show, but a farewell nomination is possible), Regina King (the Emmy’s love her but I don’t think she makes a splash for this type of show in a year that’s likely competitive)November 14, 2019 at 6:39 am #1203179071
She was not. And Ventimiglia is not going anywhere neither, he might be dropped in supporting and Justin Hardly might go lead, byt Ventimiglia, Brown and Moore are not going to be dropped. This is us is going to win best ensemble at SAG for the third time and they are going to be reinforced. Moore is the clear Lead this season, she has two/three roles in every episode now.
I’m not ready to say Moore will be nominated again, but I do think she’s very much in the running. As weak as Drama was last year, Drama actress really wasn’t that weak lol. It’s not like Moore was expected to be nominated.
The acting branch seems to still looooove This Is Us, and with the material Moore will likely get going forward – she’ll have a bunch of chances to show off. And yeah, are people finally going to stop doubting Milo? He’s in till the show is done, imo.November 14, 2019 at 6:02 am #1203179035
Maybe not her, but the people responsible for awards placements. They saw she didn’t get in as supporting, so they tested lead since she did get a GG nod for lead back for S1. They’re trying to maximize her chances by avoiding vote-splitting with MBB and the other female stars of the show.
If we’re talking about maximizing chances with awards then we should be talking about MBB being campaigned supporting all these years lol.November 14, 2019 at 5:26 am #1203178987
People applied the same duo logic when predicting Comer for S1 at the Emmys and Rhys+Russell wins last year. This sort of thinking is inherently faulty because it ignores the competition at play entirely, among other things. Kidman can easily get nominated without Witherspoon. The same can happen with Comer and Oh.
Disagree. Comer was a nobody when season 1 came out. It’s completely understandable that she missed and Oh made it. Witherspoon, on the other hand, is a huge star and BLL is lovvvved by the Emmy’s (all the award shows lol). She could easily get name checked.November 13, 2019 at 7:18 am #1203177461
Lmao well if she’s snubbed then she’s snubbed. She’s supporting in the show. Deal with it.November 13, 2019 at 7:11 am #1203177439
I am still predicting Truth Be Told and Octavia Spencer. These voters nominated The Alienist, The Sinner, and Top of the Lake: China Girl quite recently. They must be really liking that genre and none of them were critical favorites. Also HFPA has been welcoming towards new platforms more than any other awards. Netflix did great with House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. Amazon Prime’s Transparent really built buzz with its Golden Globe wins. They recognized Hulu first with Casual. They even nominated EPIX’s Graves, a show no one has watched. Therefore I expect Apple Tv+ to do well, especially given that it is the first platform to have contenders from all three categories; offering voters to spread acknowledgement.
The Sinner and Top of the Lake were both critically acclaimed, The Alienist is the only one that had mixed reviews. But also, the competition for those shows in those years aren’t as strong as the competition in limited series nowadays.
Chernobyl, When They See Us, Unbelievable and Fosse/Verdon would be well ahead of Truth Be Told if reviews aren’t good. Then there’s The Act, El Camino, and Years and Years that would probably be ahead of it too if it’s not good like the rumors say.November 13, 2019 at 6:31 am #1203177385
I haven’t saw The Politician yet, but those frauds are typical for the awards. According to everybody, she is the MVP of the show, she would have been an easy nomination in Lead, in supporting there is a 0% chance, Globes hate comedy nominees there and the competence is ENORMOUS.
Lol. If you haven’t even seen the show I would refrain from commenting because Paltrow is about as supporting as you could get in The Politician.November 13, 2019 at 6:26 am #1203177381
That’s actually why I don’t want to predict her. The fact that Chernobyl lost the acting races at the Emmys, despite the absence of a potential vote split, while winning both writing and directing shows that people who watched it are aware that performances are not that good. Due to how weak lead and supporting actor are I have both Harris and Skarsgard getting in easily, and that might be enough for Chernobyl. Watson is still a huge possibility though.
But the actors from Chernobyl didn’t lose to anyone that overcame vote splitting? In fact, they lost to people they were supposed to/predicted to lose to. Watson was never happening over Clarkson or Arquette, despite a lot of people around here claiming she was winning. That was weird lol, because she just clearly wasn’t. Skarsgard felt like a possible winner but cases could have been made for anyone in that category, and ultimately it went to someone who swept. Harris was the only one who truly had a big chance going in to the Emmy’s and he lost out on a performance that many people were passionate about. Chernobyl was never gonna sweep all the awards (specifically the acting awards), so them losing doesn’t mean people that the performances were just okay.November 12, 2019 at 6:41 pm #1203176746
I could watch Hahn all day.November 12, 2019 at 1:28 pm #1203176366
This was him 2 years ago Last year And this year Aged poorly my ass. He hasn’t aged at all. People talking out of their ass.
Exactly. He’s literally only gotten better looking. I like him. I’m not his biggest fan, I’m not trying to come off as a defender. It’s just absurd to say he, of all people, has aged poorly (or aged at all).
