I do not understand why AMC is not doing everything they can to air Kevin Can F*** Himself in this Emmy season
Yeah, it’s too bad. Based on social media posts by the cast, they just finished filming a week or two ago, though. I wonder if they would have finished sooner if it weren’t for COVID.March 24, 2021 at 1:26 pm #1204155856
It’s too late now, and I don’t know what Dana Carvey’s relationship is currently like with SNL, but he would have been an excellent Biden. His impression on Colbert last night is vastly superior (IMO) to anything Carey or Bennett has done in the role.March 5, 2021 at 8:38 pm #1204087065

I wonder if the reboot will focus primarily on Frasier’s relationship with his now grown son with Lilith, Frederick. With Martin gone (RIP John Mahoney), I could see them shifting to the next generation father-son dynamic. That would also potentially take some pressure off getting DHP full-time, as Frasier would have a new sparing partner in his son.
I don’t know who they’d cast as the son, but the kid who played Frederick all those years on Frasier is still acting… Not sure what other 30-something actors might be good in the role. Any thoughts?February 24, 2021 at 5:04 pm #1204059733
Unless they’re able to get David Hyde-Pierce (Niles) back full-time, I don’t see this being very successful.February 22, 2021 at 2:04 pm #1204055106
I sincerely hope Gillian does Eleanor justice. Eleanor Roosevelt is a fascinating woman in American history, and according to Wikipedia, her story hasn’t been fictionalized onscreen since the 1970s. Time to re-introduce her to a new generation.February 18, 2021 at 12:45 pm #1204048616
I’m not sure if Kevin Can F Himself will go comedy or drama. Vanity Fair called it a meta drama, so maybe the latter?February 18, 2021 at 10:25 am #1204048403
Damn. I mean there are lots of HBO Max comedies joining this season that could shake up the race but is S. ACTOR literally going to be actors from The Great, SNL and Ted Lasso lmao?
I want to say that Supporting Actor will be SNL heavy given the empty field, but outside of Yang and Thompson, most of SNL’s standouts are women. And SNL’s history at the Emmys also supports this idea. With the exception of Alec Baldwin, only two regular cast members (Hader and Thompson) have been nominated in this category since 1983 (when Eddie Murphy got a nod).
Ted Lasso should theoretically do very well at the Emmys, but so far, Sudeikis is the only male actor (to my knowledge) who’s gotten any awards attention. I think part of the problem is that there isn’t really one standout supporting actor on TL. They’re all pretty even. Supporting Actress is a bit of a different story, though, and I can see Hannah Waddingham getting in.
Unless another show really pops this spring, I think the Supporting Actor category is in for some surprising nominations.February 18, 2021 at 9:54 am #1204048348
I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on with Winslet’s accent here. It’s not laughably bad or anything, it’s just kinda forced sounding?February 13, 2021 at 2:43 pm #1204040874
I wasn’t familiar with Mystery Road, so I looked it up. Apparently it is an Australian series? If that’s the case, I don’t know why it was nominated for Australia’s international awards…February 13, 2021 at 11:01 am #1204040588

I grew up with Harry Potter. Dan Radcliffe and I are the same age. But any and all nostalgia I had for the series ended after Rowling’s bigotry became painfully clear.
That said, I suppose this was news was kind of inevitable. Disney+ has, like, 500 Star Wars tv shows in development, and with HBO Max trying to grow their subscriber base, of course they’re going to do the same with one of their most popular franchises.
The original books probably would have worked better as a tv series from the start. But obviously that particular ship has sailed.January 22, 2021 at 6:00 pm #1203996923
adele doesn’t live stateside, does she?
She may have US property, but I think she flew over from the UK for SNL.
Dan Levy has a home in LA, but he’s been back in Canada since last summer. So, he’ll be coming in from Toronto to host…and the US/Canadian border is technically closed.
All this to say, the pandemic rules don’t really seem to apply to entertainment/rich/connected people. If SNL wants someone from the UK to host, they could probably make it work.January 22, 2021 at 12:21 pm #1203996506
Jason Sudeikis next! Although he’s probably hosted a gazillon times before no?)
I think Jason’s returned for guest spots as Biden, etc., but I don’t remember if he’s actually hosted?
It’s a bit of a bummer that SNL has already assigned Biden to a regular cast member. I agree with the move, but now would have been the perfect time for Jason to host and give a Biden encore.
