i feel bad for Showtime for being underrepresented there, to me it always seems like they are always trying the most. And they produce some very good stuff
I agree. Showtime feels scrappy too and they do have good shows. I like seeing them land noms as well.December 6, 2018 at 9:38 am #1202691439
FX is closing out this year strong between the AFI list and their Golden Globes haul. I always like seeing them do well because they feel scrappier than their rivals. They seem to have a smaller budget and less shows overall than streaming behemoths like Netflix and their strategy seems to be based around carefully curating and cultivating what shows they do have.December 6, 2018 at 7:48 am #1202691306
I never bought The Haunting of Hill House being a thing.
Back in the old predictions thread, I wondered if the Golden Globes currently have a bit of an anti-horror bias because they don’t like Stranger Things and American Horror Story as much as the Emmys do, so I was prepared for them to snub The Haunting of Hill House as well.December 4, 2018 at 11:26 am #1202689108
Wow, AFI really loves their FX shows. There’s four of them on their list: The Americans, The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Atlanta, and Pose.November 20, 2018 at 3:31 am #1202678717
It is really good that they cast unknown actresses for Liza Minnelli and Shirley MacLaine, because it means that they are looking for accuracy and quality.
I totally get what you mean, but on the other hand, it’s kinda funny hearing Laura Osnes being called an unknown because she’s been prominent on Broadway for a while now. She was Tony-nominated for the musical Bonnie and Clyde in 2012 (which she starred in alongside Supergirl‘s Jeremy Jordan!). Here’s hoping this is her big break into tv!November 10, 2018 at 3:22 am #1202671874
Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep?November 6, 2018 at 8:37 pm #1202669880
Going back, The X-Files won three times and they nominated Sarah Michelle Gellar for Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
That’s good to hear. Award committees should reward genre shows when they deserve it and while The Haunting of Hill House fell apart for me a bit near the end, it’d be a deserving nominee/winner.November 6, 2018 at 7:55 am #1202669560
There’s no anti-horror bias working against Haunting of Hill House for the Globes, is there? I ask because both Stranger Things and American Horror Story tend to get less love at the GGs than they do at the Emmys. Are there other big horror shoes that regularly get nominations? The GGs don’t seem to like Black Mirror either, so do they just dislike genre shows or something?
But then, this does mean that maybe the Emmys are more likely to embrace Haunting of Hill House if the GGs overlook it for whatever reason.November 6, 2018 at 4:32 am #1202669493
If HOTH was there it wouldn’t. One is hot fresh hip and cool thing, the other is yesterday’s news that almost no one watched.
With the Golden Globes, wouldn’t it be less about pure ratings and more about whether the 100 or so journalists of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have seen it? Honestly, 45% of the reason I think Versace is likely to win Limited Series is because it premiered on tv channels in several other countries, and I know members of the HFPA have seen and written about it.November 6, 2018 at 3:44 am #1202669481
Now that I have thought a little about it I think they should submit in limited at Globes. With a hardon HFPA has for Amazon I can’t see it beating Homecoming while in limited they would have won quite easily.
I think they went Drama instead of Limited to avoid Versace, which with its decent pop culture exposure, solid showing at the Emmys, and cast of young actors plus foreign big name stars seems tailor-made to appeal to Golden Globes voters. Like, that show checks off every trend I’ve learned the HFPA likes just from reading these message boards. I don’t think Haunting of Hill House will have an easy time in Drama, but I don’t see it being a cakewalk for it in Limited either.November 1, 2018 at 4:56 pm #1202666543
I can’t stand the guy playing Michael, he looks immature and he’s not that much a good actor, only younger fans see him that great, but me personally I don’t( I’m 18 bwt)
I’m not looking to change your mind or argue about the quality of his acting, but I do want to push back against the idea that it’s only younger fans who like his acting. He’s definitely picked up a larger and younger fanbase with AHS, but he got noticed earlier this year for his solid turn as David Madson in The Assassination of Gianni Versace, which seems to have an older viewership than AHS and did fairly well with Emmy voters.
The users of this very website voted him winner for Movie/Limited Series Supporting Actor in the most recent Gold Derby TV Awards (for his ACS performance). So yeah, it’s not just the teens who like him.October 25, 2018 at 1:02 pm #1202661670
Maisel debuting on December 5th in the UK. Looks like it could sweep the International category
Sure, why not? I honestly have no idea what they look for in an International category winner.
I guess I’d probably give shows with UK-familiar actors (The Alienist and The Americans both have Welsh leading men) or production staff (all eps of Versace were written by British novelist Tom Rob Smith) a little more of an edge because I assume they’re more likely to do some promo/press in their home country and they might have homegrown UK fan bases, but I honestly don’t know if this is a factor at all.
You seem pretty sure about Mrs. Maisel and I honestly don’t know enough to say either way.
