In a ideal world, Hinckle/Borstein and Colman/Clifford split so many votes that Gilpin ends up winning it.
You know that would be the true justice in this category.August 20, 2019 at 9:58 am #1203031763
Variety did a edition on the Comedy categories. Betty Gilpin and Natasha Lyonne are on the cover. I want them to work together now.
I think something Natasha said in the interview adds to the discussion of whether she’s playing herself or not.
“But I will say that the joy of being the architect of “Russian Doll” — the writer, the overseer of its aesthetic and point of view — is you really get to build your own world, and you know exactly the size and the range you can do. So in other ways I’ve been often typecast into things that may seem like a sister adjacent to my role in “Russian Doll,” but because here I was doing the writing and the world-building, I was able to make much bigger swings and know what would or wouldn’t land because I knew where I was coming from and had control of the edit.”August 11, 2019 at 8:12 pm #1203019909
Chlumsky doesn’t really have momentum nor a tape. When you think of farewell hugs, you go to JLD and maybe Tony Hale. I disliked what they did with Amy this final season, totally desconstructed her and she was outside of the core of the show for so long, she was never the MVP. If she didn’t win for season 4, I don’t see it happening now.
I wouldn’t think Marin Hinckle was a threat to Alex Borstein if I didn’t hang out here at Gold Derby and AVClub. She got so much attention for this second season (and I still don’t know why), it might hurt Borstein a lot.August 11, 2019 at 8:04 pm #1203019891
GLOW is also more expensive than One Day at a Time since it’s a period single cam with a lot of stunt work.
Obviously it’s tough to get a real read on Netflix’s ratings considering how little information they release and how targeted said information is, but Variety wrote an article last year about their numbers.
The GLOW season 2 premiere was watched by 1.3 million U.S. viewers in its first three days. By comparison, the Stranger Things season 2 premiere was watched by over 15 million, while 13 Reasons Why season 2 opened to over 6 million.
It has a high concentration of viewers in the 18-49 demo, but Netflix doesn’t care about stuff like that.
Where Netflix has a 2-3 season edict for most of its shows, I don’t think GLOW is a big enough show in terms of acclaim or viewership to make it any further.
Yes, Netflix numbers are sort of a enigma, but this was what I had in mind with the ‘ratings’ commentary. The reviewer in AVClub thinks that Jenji Kohan’s name might save GLOW of a cancellation this season, but i don’t know, I’m not confident. I’d be extremely happy though, I love the show dearly and season 3 was great.August 11, 2019 at 7:59 pm #1203019883
I’m not sure what Gold Derby’s general consensus on Jane the Virgin is, but having started binge watching season 5 since it dropped on Netflix, I just wanted to say that Gina Rodriguez’s monologue in episode 1 was one of my favorite scenes in television this year and makes me sad that the show doesn’t get awards attention.
And she directed this episode as well. She’s always been great but the premiere of the final season might be her best acting on the show. Truly sad that the CW leading ladies (cause Rachel Bloom is another amazing showcase) never got recognition outside of the Globes.August 10, 2019 at 11:10 pm #1203019133
Well, Gilpin is the show’s only big nomination. Its ‘ratings’ aren’t big either, and Netflix has been cancelling smaller shows regularly. And given the way things nicely wrapped up the third season, I don’t know, the cancelation chances are high.August 10, 2019 at 10:57 pm #1203019131
I love this show.
Episode 5 is the season’s best, by far. It was just SO. MUCH. FUN. I think it only stands behind “The Good Twin” as the series’ best.
I’ve finished the season last night and thought it was great. Not as great as season 2, but still really, really good. Betty Gilpin continues to be the standout (and by this point I don’t think I really buy the ‘supporting’ tag for her, she’s just as much of a lead as Brie), and I really liked the focus on Kate Nash, she and Chris Lowell had great material to work with. Also, I can totally see Geena Davis winning a Guest Emmy. Episode 9 has the perfect moment.
I don’t feel confident about having a fourth season, the finale is pretty wrapped up. But it’s a shame to lose such a dynamic, empowered, diverse cast like this one.August 10, 2019 at 9:17 am #1203018547
I said this in the Comedy thread, but I’ll say it again: watch out for Betty Gilpin. With GLOW’s third season, the people who voted for her will DEFINELY remember why they did it in the first place. The field in SAC is so wide open, that it could happen.August 10, 2019 at 3:23 am #1203018231
I have dificult to write in inglish, but i will try.
If JLD talks about cancer in her interviews, it’s not to win awards. She didn’t need cancer to win 11 Emmys. I am a nurse and take care of cancer patients every day. Such an event becomes part of a person’s story and everyone who likes her want to hear about her health. Watch any interview with her after cancer and you’ll find that talking about it is not on her agenda, but people want to hear about it. I’ve probably watched and heard all JLD’s interviews available on the internet, many of them more than once. I can tell you, this is a very humble person (go watch her Mark Twain speech). But she wants to keep working for many years, and continuing such a brilliant career requires effort and dedication. Imagine you have been working on television since 1982, still relevant, still winning awards. Time Magazine and Vanity Fair cover in The same year. Who on earth wants to lose it? No one sets records by giving up the prize.
I’m also a big fan of JLD and have been for years, and I couldn’t agree more. The reason she talks about the cancer is to give awareness to it, it has been since her diagnosis. But everytime it’s mentioned on interviews, she looks a little uncomfortable. She def wouldn’t bring it up by herself.
About campaigning, I’m not in the industry but I feel like HBO is the type of network that doesn’t just let people “sit back and chill”, specially after bringing 9 Emmys in the last decade. I’m not saying she’s obligated to do it, and of course this win in particular gives her the record and might important to her, but I’m pretty sure there’s at least some pressure from the network to put yourself out there and not fall off the radar.August 10, 2019 at 3:15 am #1203018229
Watch out for a possible Betty Gilpin upset. GLOW’s season just dropped in and the people who voted for her in the first place will be reminded of why. In a crowded field with a two-time winner that doesn’t feel that fresh, vote splitting for the two funniest of the bunch AND the other two that haven’t been on for almost a year, a forever bridesmaid that didn’t have the best season to work with, and sarah goldberg (the only performance i haven’t seen so i can’t comment on it), betty might get a lot of ups.
Of course, GLOW isn’t beloved by the academy and it’s probably going to get cancelled, but there are at least a few voters out there who went for Gilpin once because they’ve seen her amazing work. And if these people watch the new season, they’ll probably keep her name fresh in their minds.February 24, 2019 at 9:53 pm #1202792550
Did Weisz leave a little after the supp. actress category? She was nowhere to be found when Olivia won.February 24, 2019 at 9:49 pm #1202792533
Just realized that 3 of the acting wins were for LGB roles (Colman, Malek and Ali) all on the same night! (:
Yeah, and overall, there were 7 LGBT roles nominated tonight (E. Grant, Weisz, Stone, McCarthy). I think it’s the most representative the Oscars have ever beenFebruary 24, 2019 at 9:45 pm #1202792512
This is the most misleading Oscar results ever. Does campaining still matter? Should we look only at the performances?
We have a winner who checked all the lists of campaining strategies but still didn’t get love from all the precursors. A winner that didn’t attend to anything, didn’t even campaign at all and won. We also have a charicature imitation winning best actor over better performances. Not to mention a double-winner in a two years spawn. What is the logic?????? Is there a logic????
