I hope that Adam Sandler’s 100% Fresh – Chris Farley Tribute Song has a shot at SongDecember 28, 2018 at 8:24 pm #1202712980
I’ve now seen Adams and King, and I’m not convinced either having the winning stuff. I’m shocked at how underwhelmed I was by the lack of baity stuff from King. Same can be said about Kidman’s performance in Boy Erased.
It’s a shame Weisz/Stone are possibly splitting votes, because I think Weisz is the true underrated deserving supporting performance this year.
I’m ok with Blunt getting in here and think she can win riding the wave with Poppins.September 4, 2018 at 9:31 pm #1202623523

Of course reviewers were biased. When it comes to Lifetime they always diss their productions (sans UnReal first season).
I won’t even get into your horrendous comments regarding whitewashing, but if you’re going to spew garbage generalizations like this, the least you can do is fact check.
Lifetime has gotten plenty of nomination love at the Emmys, along with positive notices for plenty of productions outside of UnReal.
In the past decade they’ve racked up the below noms at the Primetime Emmys:
Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy
The Memory Keeper’s Daughter
Prayers for Bobby
The Trip to Bountiful
Gena Rowlands as Melissa Eisenbloom on What If God Were the Sun?
Shirley MacLaine as Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel on Coco Chanel
Sigourney Weaver as Mary Griffith on Prayers for Bobby
Joan Allen as Georgia O’Keeffe on Georgia O’Keeffe
Bob Balaban for Georgia O’Keeffe
Taraji P. Henson as Tiffany Rubin on The Tiffany Rubin Story
Alfre Woodard as Louisa “Ouiser” Boudreaux on Steel Magnolias
Minnie Driver as Maggie Royal on Return to Zero
Cicely Tyson as Mrs. Carrie Watts on The Trip to Bountiful
Ellen Burstyn as Olivia Foxworth on Flowers in the Attic
Constance Zimmer as Quinn King on UnREAL
UnREAL, Written by Marti Noxon and Sarah Gertrude Shapiro (Lifetime)
Ring of Fire, Directed by Allison Anders
plus 10+ Nominations for Project Runway, and a win for Heidi Klum/Tim Gunn
If this misses a nomination this won’t be because of network bias or some social agenda. This movie has problems way beyond that.August 24, 2017 at 8:58 pm #1202194484
Reminder as people go suggesting hosts from other broadcast networks.
For the past SIX seasons, these have been the only hosts who have shows on other broadcast networks. NBC barely has their own talent host, let alone a competing broadcast network.
Melissa McCarthy (more for Bridesmaids than Mike & Molly)
Jason Segel (more for The Muppets than How I Met Your Mother)
Seth MacFarlane (more for Ted than Family Guy)
Andy Samberg (former cast member and NBCUni produces Brooklyn 99)

As soon as people start paying attention beyond casting this project will be dead in the water. The internet will not look kindly on this kind of whitewashing. There is no reason to cast Zeta-Jones as a latina woman.April 30, 2017 at 9:35 pm #1202080969
I would love for Sharon Horgan to sneak in hereApril 26, 2017 at 9:13 pm #1202077264
I think people are severely underestimating THE HANDMAID’S TALE.
Moss is a threat to Foy, and Hulu can throw most of (if not all) their awards resources behind her.April 25, 2017 at 10:54 am #1202076046
-Krakowski has recent history of being snubbed and then returning the following year, so wouldn’t be surprised to see her back.
-Modern Family is having a pretty rough season, I don’t see how Bowen comes back.April 25, 2017 at 10:42 am #1202076029
Janney? Did she switch to Lead?
WOW, she did. Just saw that.April 20, 2017 at 6:09 pm #1202072248
If you get this upset about a TV show, I will suggest the following:
Don’t fucking watch
Look into therapyApril 20, 2017 at 6:06 pm #1202072245
We don’t know what contractual obligations HBO has in regards to category placement. I’m pretty sure Glenn Close being the only lead in DAMAGES was contractual.
So if you’re Academy Award winners like Kidman and Witherspoon, your agents are going to want to make sure someone like Shailene Woodley cannot steal the spotlight.April 20, 2017 at 5:51 pm #1202072230
NBC didn’t treat this like garbage and I’m tired of hearing that it did.
1. There were commercials, bus ads, etc and it was heavily promoted on the network.
2. It literally aired in the best timeslot on the network (after THE VOICE)
3. Double-pumping comedy episodes is something NBC has been doing for awhile now. In fact, they originally scheduled CARMICHAEL & MR. ROBINSON to air concurrently and then later decided it made sense for advertising purposes to double-pump them.
This is the same strategy they are using for TRIAL & ERROR/GREAT NEWS. NBC and NBCUniversal are not in the business of pissing off Tina Fey via a burnoff. It’s why you also see so many ads for GREAT NEWS.
4. NBC only premiered ONE new comedy this fall (THE GOOD PLACE after SUPERSTORE) and those were the only comedies they aired.
So please share how NBC treated this like garbage. I don’t think airing it in place of POWERLESS (the ONLY other open comedy slot after GOOD PLACE) is better than THE VOICE.
