Regarding the fact that Rory Culkin’s role seems to be too small to get in on a quite stacked category, does Gian Franco Rodriguez stand a chance? Review seems to give him a spotlight.
Btw, I’m still waiting for the addition of Jeff Wilbusch for Oslo. That role is the best among the cast, and he may have a goodwill left from Unorthodox.May 13, 2021 at 11:17 pm #1204254425
Well, it’s technically a guild, a union, and if it stops existing, thousands of actor will not completely get their right. In terms of award, it’s not only an award, but also the night of actor because they really promote those who don’t work as usual as what arr nominated, and it will be such a shame not to have an award that accommodate this whole union’s voice. It’s highly respectable, actually, to have this (more than GG) because it’s from actors, not journalists. If there’s an improvement, I think it will be getting rid of AFTRA from the voters, and not getting rid of the whole award.May 13, 2021 at 11:08 pm #1204254420
I think there’s no way the backlash will harm that film because we all have that abusive boss, and they are still in that managing/directing spot at our office. That’s not just a problem of entertainment industry, but it’s everywhere, and it’ll be very hypocritical for people to kindle the backlash while doing nothing to their own work environment. When we talk about Coen brothers, there’s a high probability that they know that, but I guess they don’t have balls to criticise that. It’s not like everyone before #metoo would publicly reprimand sexual offense, right? It doesn’t help that they’re men, and their film really promoted masculinity in the way that when they reprimand abusive behaviour, it will hurt their filmography which is very graphic. It’s so easy for them to answer those questions (and to remove Rudin from the producing team).May 12, 2021 at 3:58 am #1204251966
Well, the more people in hollywood bitching about award shows the likely the Oscars will be next. Imagine no more award shows and less platforms for celebrities lecturing the viewers or general public about equality. I guess it’s better that way.
I personally cannot be relieved if the modern masterpieces, such as Moonlight, Parasite, or A Separation, go home unrewarded. Those films can be seen more widely because of awards. Shame to those lecturers, but if it ends up with nothing to honour those wonderful gems, I disagree. That’s also why the declining viewers of these shows are detrimental to the industry, especially to those people who work for their art more than their personality as a celeb. At the end of the day, we, human, love to see competitions.May 9, 2021 at 7:12 am #1204248067
I want to ask here, idk it seems right to be put here since it still seems like a long shot. Many of us, including me, feel confident about Krysta Rodriguez since it’s a very meaty role, and Ewan McGregor. Does it mean Halston is strong enough to get in Series or will it be another A Very English Scandal?May 9, 2021 at 6:28 am #1204248021
I mean it was clear that the cultural environment really supported Watchmen (although it was deserving even without any narrative). Now, we don’t have that. Perhaps it supports TQG; the fact that its creator is a big TV player is also a big factor, but I think the narrative of Moonlight maker goes to TV and gives them a gem can be stronger. Let’s see.May 9, 2021 at 6:16 am #1204248011
Plus, no one respected Ozark the way they respected Succession, especially when the Metacritic score rocketed and the whole show was much more relatable to them. No one cared about Jews when the murder of black people was the headline everyday. No one wanted a drama, no matter how critically raved it was, to win against another (but much funnier) drama with stand up comedian at the centre. Now we’re going to see what current will appear, and which way it will go.May 9, 2021 at 6:09 am #1204248002
Well I mean the same argument could be made for Ozark last year when it was up against Succession. Or Unorthodox when it was up against Watchmen. Atlanta too when it was up against Maisel. I know you don’t like the show but it has ASC, ACE, CAS, CDG, Critics Choice, DGA, Golden Globe, MPSE, PGA, SAG, Scripter and WGA WINS. It has 307k votes on IMDB and counting and is a massive international hit. Is it locked for the win? No. And no one has implied that it is. But it’s going to have to take a lot more than critics raving about it for The Underground Railroad to win here. Especially in a category like Actress. It’s a much stronger frontrunner than either Succession, Watchmen or Maisel were.
Just because it’s not released in the same season half as The Underground Railroad. Remember, Stranger Things was a big hit back then, and probably would’ve gotten everything had The Handmaid’s Tale not been released at the same period. Yes, no one’s sure because the wave of publicity hasn’t started, but never underestimate the money of Amazon.May 9, 2021 at 4:17 am #1204247859
I’m dying to predict Sheila Atim, but Lily Rabe has a better position since she’s more well-known due to her works in the past. Somehow I think both will get in if Prime successfully build and maintain the buzz up voting days.
One question! Will Hamilton be able to maintain the buzz? Is name checking strong enough to get at least one of the leads nominated? I’m so skeptical about this particular show actually.May 4, 2021 at 11:22 pm #1204243096
I love the books, but I can’t say that I’m intrigued to see the series. It’s not a literary masterpiece, it’s quite a “popcorn” book, but somehow it doesn’t really have many things that will surprise me visually (unlike, uh I hate to make this comparison, Harry Potter with its magic). That being said, I expect this to be a tech-only player.May 4, 2021 at 10:57 pm #1204243078
Am I the only one who doesn’t think Hahn is happening? Like…at all? Also, I still don’t buy her getting in, if Olsen gets snubbed.
Yeah, but I think she’s on the brink of being snubbed. Right now I have Krysta Rodriguez from Netflix’ Halston because Liza Minelli is a legend that’s still alive and hasn’t been forgotten (unlike Gwen Verdon). If she nails that performance, it’s not only Ewan McGregor that will get any buzz. Plus, the category is so empty. The unknown name will be benefitted from that.May 4, 2021 at 9:38 am #1204242262
So, may I sum up, TUR perhaps becomes not only a big challenger for TQG, but also a big challenger in Supporting Actor. I mean when we all agree that Small Axe‘s buzz has gone, with the addition of the fact that Boyega is not the strongest in his own series, Edgerton seems like a real threat to win that category.
These reviews are mind-blowing. I think they’re more than just raves.
Luca, I think we all agree than Jenkins is a legend-in-making. This kind of review is not something surprising for me.May 4, 2021 at 8:03 am #1204242159
For editors, I’d like to ask for the addition of Jeff Wilbusch for HBO’s Oslo. His role was the only from the original stage play that won a Tony, and I think the film will not diminish his character at all. Plus, perhaps he has a good will from Unorthodox because that performance deserves much attention (so kudos to Satellite for recognising him).May 4, 2021 at 7:17 am #1204242079
Well, Chazelle could “fail” (award wise) on his third attempt while the film was critically acclaimed and had big names in it. Why can’t McKay follow the same route? DiCaprio’s name guarantees its commercial attraction, but I doubt it can influence its critical reception related to awards. As far as I’m concerned, we predict for the future, right? While Netflix just left award season with two lead actors nominated, I don’t this this year they will achieve the same feat because cinemas are gradually opened and The AMPAS will be back to its nature of loving cinema-released film. I believe Cumberbatch will be Netflix’ only placeholder because the film he stars in is meatier, and he’s fresh enough to be awarded something.
