I believe it was the Little Gold Men podcast that mentioned after Allison Janney won (an actress I adore but didn’t even deserve to be nominated for that performance imo) and while the telecast went to commercial break… there was an eerie sense in the room of, “Ok, what did we just do?” Instant regret for honoring Janney’s career over a career-best performance (and best performance of the year in any category) from Metcalf.
Metcalf’s loss will go down as one of the biggest mistakes in Oscar history, on par with wins from Crash and The King’s Speech. I have to believe she was within in a couple of votes of getting that Oscar.October 2, 2017 at 9:46 pm #1202228708
I believe there should be a guest performer in a limited series or limited performance in a made for television movie category. Or they should allow those who would qualify (appearing in less than 50% of the episodes for a limited series) to submit in the guest categories.
It seems unfair that some very strong performances are being overlooked because of the over crowding of the supporting categories (not to take away from those nominated this year).
I know that there are several examples but one that sticks out as deserving of this recognition is Mary McDonnell this past year in Fargo. I would have loved to have seen her Emmy nominated for this role. Sarah Paulson as well for the role of Geraldine Page on Feud (for her last line on the show alone).
They may not be able to fill out their own category but at least allow them to compete in the guest categories.May 17, 2017 at 11:43 pm #1202095882
Here is a link to Tyne Daly talking about winning for Christy.
She also mentions that she has been nominated for an emmy for every season of tv that she has done. What an amazing feat!
Are there other performers who have appeared on multiple shows as series regulars and been nominated every year?
She even mentions how sad she will be when this record is broken.September 22, 2015 at 9:59 pm #191429
They have presented the awards in the order of production before. I want to say it was the year of Avatar/The Hurt Locker. I like the idea but I don’t like them getting credit as if it has never been done before.
I wish they would bring back the past winners to present to the acting nominees. It took time, yes, but it was so enjoyable to see so many legends and a few lesser known people now on stage whom may not normally be invited to preent.
Finally, if i hear a producer talk about cutting the show down or worrying about time I always get worried. This is the most important event in the entertainment industry. Who cares if it runs long. People watch the superbowl for 5 hours every year and no one complains. This event is my superbowl and I love seeing the awards and the montages and such. Dont worry about timer worry about putting together a worthy ceremony for that year in film and allowing the people who JUST WON AN OSCAR to have their moment. It is still the second most watched entertainment event of the year. It makes money. Don’t commercialize it… honor it.

I wish Forte had gone with the season finalbut he is still strong with this episode. The finale shines a more sympathetic light on him. THe moment where he sings the song to Carol is especially strong. Best of luck to him. He is my personal pick.July 21, 2015 at 8:45 pm #111274
Norman Jewison won the Irving G. Thalberg award in 99. Would this make him ineligable for an Honorary Oscar? He would be a very deserving recepient and someone who’s name is not mentioned often.
Thinking younger… since Steve Martin recently won… I would consider Sigourney Weaver a worthy recepient.
Is this award now viewed only as a makeup oscar? If not than surely Jack Nicholson would be worthy of an award honoring his body of work.
Lee Grant, Shirley Knight, Joanne Woodward and Olivia DeHavilland all would make me happy as well.
Sitting here watching Pollock has me thinking Ed Harris must win one of these someday.June 23, 2015 at 8:58 pm #351324
Ruth Wilson is not getting in.June 1, 2015 at 8:15 pm #313321
Glad to see all of the love for Sam Waterston. I think he is the best part of this show right now and that he delivers a performance quite different from what we have seen from him before. His tenderness that he brings to most of his characters is fully on display here and I really enjoyed his interpretation and not characterization.
I looked up his awards history and was glad to see that he won a Golden Globe for I’ll Fly Away and an Emmy for producing some show. He is well liked at the Emmy’s so if the show is seen he should be nominated and would have a strong chance at winning.
That is his Golden Globe win.
Modern Family declined in quality this season. It won’t be but it should be left off of series and only receive acting noms for Sara, Julie and Ed. Ed has a strong tape as well with the bowling episode.

I would love to see Allison Brie nominated in Guest Actress. She has been a bright spot on this show for the past 8 years and it would be a nice send off for her to receive a nomination.

I think he should go with Pranks for Nothin. He is has a nice arc that ends with him being reaccepted by the group. The episode is a little bit dramatic but it is also quite funny and a showcase for Forte who displays a ton of range. I think he would be competative with this tape.April 14, 2015 at 12:31 am #182649
Are these done? They were quite fun!March 11, 2015 at 8:26 pm #343497

I want to give a shout out to Carol Kane who I think is really killing it so far. She has not had the most to work with but she knocks every scene she is in out of the park. I hope we get to see more of her and that she does not turn into the “Kenneth” of Kimmy.
Also the theme song is amazing. Not sure if it qualifies for anything at the Emmy’s but would love for it to get some attention.
Finally, I don’t think that Titus is a stereotype at all. As a gay man I know many people who act similarly to him. For me he is a fine representation of a gay man. He is no more over the top than Jenna Maroney was on 30 Rock. Coming from the stage it may take him a minute to ease more comfortably into a series role (yes i know he has some television experience) similar to Sutton Foster on Bunheads.
