Cox, Strong and Snook should get nods for this season. The rest of the cast are impeccable but the storylines have focused on these 3 this season – seems fair for them to be prioritised.
Really excited for the last episode – love that they continually find ways to keep most of the cast in the same location; it’s the dynamics between characters that heighten the drama and the show has been masterful in handling that this season.October 9, 2019 at 8:51 am #1203129343
The one kinda sad thing about The Crown is that the new cast have a whole advantage here that the old cast never did – they get to be both a familiar show (which SAG loves) and be an entirely new (and probably acclaimed) ensemble. Also, given how it did at the Emmys last year, the show almost definitely would have been set to win series for its third season without the cast overhaul. So the new cast gets to ride into all of these awards with all of that “next series winner” buzz that was actually founded by Foy, Smith, Kirby etc. Really wouldn’t be surprised if it swept everything.
It could work against them though. There are plenty of comments online about wishing they kept the old cast with aged makeup so the new cast has an additional barrier of winning over those that are loyal to the original/ may be viewed as not living up to the standard set of the original cast.
That said it is a cast of veterans and I’m keen for Charles Dance to finally win something lolOctober 3, 2019 at 5:22 pm #1203120053
Along with Fleabag, Succession is the most mentioned show. A PGA nomination seems likely this year.
Predicting Drama next year will be Succession (HBO) vs The Crown (Netflix). The former was the most talked about show (aside from Fleabag) among actors at the Emmys and the latter is going to be huge (also I can see Netflix throwing money until it wins a big prize – it must be embarrassing that Amazon has won 2 on the comedy side already). Season 3 of Succession likely to be out during Emmy voting period next year…
Also Mike Flanagan should absolutely be given a chance to do Doctor Who – that show needs a jolt of fresh ideas.September 25, 2019 at 10:41 pm #1203103889
@moryan: fyi a preview of next year’s #Emmys, Olivia Colman’s gonna win for The Crown the end byeeeeee
She’s watching advanced screeners. Also said Tobias Menzies is excellent and confirms HBC gives us “everything we want”.
And I thought I couldn’t be more hyped…September 24, 2019 at 9:48 am #1203100015
Honestly I know there was a lot of high profile support among actors for WTSU (which is why Jerome won) but there was always a baseline of support from actors for Chernobyl as well – Ben Stiller, Sarah Paulson, Fiona Shaw, Jon Cryer etc are just some of the few names I could remember giving it a shoutout, so I don’t think the gap between the percentage of techs and acting support was that far apart.
More importantly it is clear that Chernobyl was WIDELY seen by people not just in LA/NY, plus its international reach was insane so it likely picked up most of the foreign votes as well (especially when there was no other foreign alternative eg A Very English Scandal didn’t get in to split the UK vote and Chernobyl is chiefly a Sky Atlantic production and the whole industry was aware of it since it was casting UK actors).
Chernobyl was simply to big to ignore, was this year’s summer television event and to an extent benefited from overlapping with the shitty GOT ending and the inevitable comparisons.
Not to mention the critics awarded it the TCA over WTSU. Think the pundits were just swayed by the local profile of the incident as well as Ava’s clout in the industry.September 23, 2019 at 6:22 pm #1203098862
I’m not sure about Jerome. SAG will definitely go with Harris and the Globes might too.
SAG is Netflix leaning I think it will go to Jerome. Harris has a shot at the Globe since that voting body is more international and again Chernobyl is a global juggernaut.September 22, 2019 at 11:49 pm #1203097240
Not only that, but she was basically not known and the least popular in the US from that category.
HFPA is not giving Colman a 3rd trophy lol, they will definitely go with Colman, then SAG won’t resist. Remember Elizabeth Moss and Clair Foy lol.
A Globe voting member has already raved Colman’s performance in The Crown as “extraordinary” and “a wonder” (and also mentioned that she is the nicest person to meet in real life). I think she’s competitive for a win, third Globe or not.
The Fiona Shaw hate on this forum is ridiculous. She’s a legendary acting and theater veteran and is enjoying a resurgence rare of actresses in her age group.September 22, 2019 at 7:29 pm #1203095936
I am so behind but SUCCESSION SNATCHED WRITING PRAISE BESeptember 22, 2019 at 6:53 pm #1203095359
Oh just wait, the SJW’s are coming for Chernobyl’s scalp after tonight.
I really don’t get why people would go after Chernobyl of all shows. It’s a stunning masterpiece about a horrific disaster and more importantly the humanity witnessed amongst those that knowingly sacrificed their lives to avoid a greater tragedy. It’s not some cold, technical achievement but a respectfully done tribute to the first responders while interrogating issues with the systems that led to it – themes of which are unfortunately incredibly relevant in governments today.September 22, 2019 at 6:40 pm #1203095165
