I have no problem with sweeps as long as they are deserving and different every year and so far it has. Since 2016, almost all of the main telecast acting winners have been very deserving and they are trying to mix it up. The only 3 wins that have been deemed undeserving are Alec Baldwin, Ben Mendelsohn, and Tobias Menzies.
But the guest categories are an embarrassment and panels must be brought back there.

I can’t speak to what Twitter was doing back then, but I know that GD scorched the EARTH over Martindale’s nonsense cameo Emmy wins.
But Goldderby the website has to do more.
The editors of this website should be tracking down Performer Peer Governors like Patrika Darbo and Bob Bergen to make them aware of what is going on in these guest categories and how it threatens the integrity of the award. If they feel pressure they will need to address it and make changes.

The Creative Arts and in particular the Guest categories would always produce some of the most exciting and deserved wins every year. This was because informed panels who watched the work would make informed good decisions.
The current state of the guest categories is an absolute embarrassment. They are indefensible. The horrendous wins based on people appearing as merely cameos and gaming the system has made an absolute mockery of the entire process. How can anyone take it seriously?
It is shocking Goldderby does not lead the charge to fight this. Yes in the main categories, populist voting can still lead to deserving winners as the voters are more likely to be aware of the work nominated. It’s still unfair because performers from shows without broad support can’t win. but still leads to good worthy winners. In categories like guest where the voters are more likely to be unaware of the work nominated, it leads to a mockery.
It’s time for Goldderby editors to stop pretending there isnt anything this great website can do to change this mess. There is. This website and it’s editors must put their foot down and use their editorial might to pressure the TV Academy and bring aware to the injustices being done.
5 years of most of the guest acting categories flushed down the drain. And for what? Enough is enough. Bring back blue ribbon panels for GUEST CATEGORIES.

Did Claire Foy do anything worthy to win the likely name check win she has coming up? Will this be Maggie Martindale/Cherry Jones level bad?May 25, 2021 at 12:34 pm #1204272016

1986 R&B SONG
Jeffrey E. Cohen & Narada Michael Walden – “Freeway of Love” (Aretha Franklin) – WINNER
David Foster, Tom Keane, & Cynthia Weil for “Through the Fire” (Chaka Khan)
LaLa for “You Give Good Love” (Whitney Houston)
Sharon Robinson, Jon Gilutin, & Bunny Hull for “New Attitude” (Patti LaBelle)
Walter Orange, Dennis Lambert, & Franne Golde for “Nightshift” (The Commodores)
This is a strong set of nominees and I agree that Freeway of Love deserved this award.
I was literally looking at the Grammy wikipedia and remarking how much I loved the R&B nominees from this year.
Female R&B Vocal for this year was Aretha for Freeway of Love (who won), Chaka for Through the Fire, Patti for New Attitude, Whitney for You Give Good Love, and Teena Marie for Lovergirl. Awesome year!December 23, 2020 at 4:00 pm #1203942702
Film “critics” and Awards bloggers are total cowards. I saw 4 genuinely TERRIBLE movies this past week. Mank, Ma Rainey, Let Them All Talk and Ammonite. Most of them get good to even great reviews. Stars are frontrunners for nominations and even winning Oscars. I would never think of watching any of those movies again.
Meanwhile they pile on an easy target movie like Hillbilly Elegy which I found by the books but watchable with very good female roles.
Just a terrible year. I cannot BELIEVE Viola and Seyfried “lead” their categories. I am starting to think awards season is all a sham and our pundits are bought and paid for. GROW SOME BALLS.December 20, 2020 at 6:15 pm #1203936113
Can only pray todays win gives Mulligan the bounce she needs to challenge what could not be anymore of a boring Best Actress race with 2 frontrunners who simply don’t deserve to win another Oscar based on what I watched.December 18, 2020 at 4:48 pm #1203931147
Jennifer Lopez shouldn’t be listed in the 90’s group, since her debut album was released in 1999. Furthermore, I think her musical talent is extremely limited, so she shouldn’t be listed in general.
Yeah I was struggling to come up with names for the 90s. But I just remembered Oleta Adams was nominated 4 times that decade so I will replace JLO with her. I don’t like JLo’s music at all but she’s certainly popular and has had a music career for 20 plus years now.December 15, 2020 at 10:35 am #1203922467
