I saw the whole thing in a marathon screening the weekend before last. It’s the real deal. Absolutely gutting. The tough part will be acting nominations. It’s a true ensemble, lots of great performances, but that means a lot of them could cancel each other out in the supporting categories. I’d love to see Jharrel Jerome get traction for Best…[Read more]

Thanks! Keep ’em coming
Daniel Montgomery started the topic 2020 Album of the Year contenders — Who am I missing? in the forum Music 4 days, 19 hours ago
Hi all, I’ll soon be starting to put together Grammy predictions for Album of the Year. Here’s the preliminary list of contenders I’ve come up with. Since there are 8 nominees now I want to cast a pretty wide net (to catch any Brandi Carliles or H.E.R.s where I can) but obviously can’t include every possible release. These are listed…[Read more]
The only win that seemed WAY off to me based on the reels in the 7 acting categories was Kyler Pettis. My predictions were pretty terrible, LOL, but I had Vernee, Hayley, and Patricia ranked 2nd, and I had Jacqueline ranked 3rd behind Marci Miller but I thought Jacqueline had the 2nd best reel there behind Maura West.
Daniel Montgomery replied to the topic 2019 Daytime Emmy Awards: Who will Win younger actor? in the forum Daytime TV 3 weeks, 2 days ago
As has been mentioned above, this is not an especially good category. I think it comes down to two: Lucas Adams vs. Garren Stitt.
Adams is the most natural actor in the bunch, and he plays some real emotions, but there’s not a whole lot of emotional impact, and not much of any emotional range.
Stitt has the best reel in terms of the material he…[Read more]
Daniel Montgomery replied to the topic 2019 Daytime Emmy Awards: Who will Win Guest performance? in the forum Daytime TV 3 weeks, 3 days ago
I was able to watch these reels a couple of days ago. It’s Kate Mansi by a mile going by the submissions. She submitted a better (and longer reel) than Marci Miller did in the Best Actress race. But I wouldn’t count out Wayne Brady (his scenes are so-so, but Emmys love him) or Patricia Bethune (character actors do well here, and she gets a juicy…[Read more]
Tony and I are doing full write-ups on lead and supporting. Probably no time to do individual write-ups on Younger and Guest, but I’ll try to do roundups of those categories.
I’ve now watched all the reels in lead, supporting, and younger (I’ll watch guest soon). I thought I’d share some snap judgments briefly, but take me with a grain of salt…[Read more]
I’ve been adding candidates since yesterday. The most important one I’ve gotten multiple requests for I just wanted to point out here:
I added Ari Aster (“Hereditary”) for Best Director yesterday as soon as someone pointed out he was missing. He’s present and accounted for!
I thought I’d add a new thread. As much as possible I like to give people the opportunity to vote for the contenders they really love in our Gold Derby Awards, so as usual I’ll be fielding requests for additions, but only if you follow certain guidelines:
1. Send your requests to me in a private message. Requests made in this thread…[Read more]
Feel free to keep any eligible contenders coming. With some of the big hitters out (Camila, Cardi, Post Malone) and 8 slots to fill, I could see this category being rife with left-field contenders.
Sorry for the delay, everyone! I’ll be hopefully adding Best New Artist today. Anyone I’m missing?
Chloe x Halle
Rich the Kid

Daniel Montgomery replied to the topic Grammy Prediction Center – Update Requests (November 2018) in the forum Music 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Before making big changes to the predictions center, I wanted to double confirm some of NewCat’s info, which I have now been able to do.
I’ve removed a number of candidates that weren’t submitted. I’ll be making additions as well, and I’m also working on Best New Artist, which I will hopefully have added to the predictions center before the week is over.
Hi all, I’m preparing to add Record and Song of the Year to the Grammys predictions center. This is always a little trickier than determining Album of the Year contenders since many artists will have multiple songs they can enter. Here’s the list I’ve been working on, trying to cast as wide a net as possible since the field will be expanded to 8…[Read more]
I looked back and couldn’t see a thread for this (let me know if I missed it). But I thought it would be fun to speculate about what actress should play the new slayer (whether it’s a “Buffy” reboot or a brand new slayer as has been suggested by Monica Owusu-Breen). There are so many black actresses I can think of off the top of my head who would…[Read more]
