Has anyone gotten to the bottom of why Julie Bowen isn’t on the ballot at all this year for the final season of Modern Family? Did she choose not to submit or was that a glitch in the ballot?September 4, 2019 at 2:08 pm #1203057915
There are a handful of films in the adapted screenplay prediction center that seemed like they’re based off of pre-existing material: After The Wedding, The Two Popes, and The King. Is that where the studios are trying to campaign them?February 23, 2019 at 5:47 pm #1202786872
I’m curious if they could mount a supporting campaign for Catherine O’Hara. As the show progresses I could make the argument that Dan Levy and Annie Murphy are the leads.
The show seems to be getting a much bigger audience since streaming on Netflix and if they campaigned strongly I could see it sneaking in somewhere.February 22, 2019 at 9:31 pm #1202785598
Could we get Schitt’s Creek in comedy and Catherine O’Hara in Actress?
And I think HBO announced Native Son comes out in April. So is that a TV movie contender with Ashton Sanders in lead actor?
Is the new Twilight Zone going to be a TV movie contender like Black Mirror or will it not meet length requirements?December 6, 2018 at 5:33 pm #1202691958
The Good Place is building steadily. Eligibility was December to November, in case anyone is wondering how The Crown is here. The Haunting of Hill House, Homecoming and Pose got Best New Series nominations, so we know that they saw them; only Succession got in additionally to Best Drama Series, so I suppose that that is the new drama that is safest at the Emmys. Got to hand it to HBO and their enduring industry clout, given the relative lack of buzz and awareness about the show.
I’m curious what that “December-November” rule means for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I don’t think either season was really in that window so is their WGA nomination today for the first or second season?November 13, 2018 at 4:42 am #1202674070
Is Bodyguard 100% a limited series when it comes to awards? Wasn’t a second season already confirmed?May 21, 2017 at 12:10 am #1202098265
Whatever episodes are submitted for Schitt’s Creek, Insecure, Girls, and Superstore.February 26, 2017 at 5:25 pm #1202023241
The one upset I am predicting in the craft categories is Kubo and The Two Strings in visual effects. I’m counting on the animation branch rallying behind the film.February 25, 2017 at 3:05 pm #1202021935
The preferential ballot has made this a confusing race for me as well. I’m not going to stray from a La La Land prediction but there does seem to be way more vocal backlash against it as well as only mild enthusiasm. There seems to be a push for anything other than La La Land but I think the Oscar season is to early and to short to get momentum behind something like Moonlight. If this were a year where the Oscars were held in March I think there might have been a chance but not now.February 25, 2017 at 3:00 pm #1202021928
I think there is vote splitting happening in so many ways but I currently have him in third. I think voters who take acting seriously have three options (Affleck, Washington, Mortensen) and there seems to be support for all three although Mortensen has no chance at winning. That leaves room for the smaller fraction of the Academy that will mark off LLL everywhere to push Gosling to a shocking win. Although I don’t there there are enough voters that will blindly vote for LLL everywhere to actually have this happen.February 23, 2017 at 4:25 pm #1202020015
In the drama races at least Homeland or Mr. Robot will be dropped, maybe both.February 23, 2017 at 4:22 pm #1202020012
I’m really excited for Best Actor now. All of these various ballots have proven that the race is up in the air not only between Casey and Denzel but with random votes going to Viggo and Ryan. I would love it if this were another year like 2002 when Adrien Brody snuck in. That being said I think this is still going to be Casey.February 23, 2017 at 4:16 pm #1202020005
I’m predicting Kubo and the Two Strings for best Visual Effects. There isn’t really a recent precedent for stop motion animation in this category but in recent years the animation branch has grown larger and if they all rallied behind Kubo it could pull off an upset. With that being said there does seem to be a lot of love for The Jungle Book so I am probably way off.February 23, 2017 at 2:53 am #1202019311
I went to a local (and packed) screening of the live action shorts last week and the audience didn’t respond to any of the shorts except for Timecode which the audience went wild for with the entire theater erupting in applause. There probably weren’t any Oscar voters in the audience but it is worth noting that a theater full of similar aged people overwhelmingly loved Timecode In such a weak year it probably doesn’t matter that the short feels bare and small compared to the others.January 24, 2017 at 6:48 am #1201993895
I need to call bullshit on anyone who is claiming Negga only was nominated because of her race. If you are making that arguement then I’ll go as far to say that bullshit nominees from last year like Stallone were only nominated because they were white when Elba acted circles around him.
Maybe Negga got in because she was that good. People were quietly talking about her since the film debuted at Cannes. Voters probably saw the film and fell in love with this new presence. She also received a rising star nomination at BAFTA so there’s a good chance she rode into a nomination with British support.
