It looks like Genius: Aretha is facing a big obstacle to making the cut for the Globes this year: https://deadline.com/2020/10/genius-aretha-shuts-down-production-covid-19-1234600432/.
And any chance that Away gets marketed as a limited series now, the way Seven Seconds was?
On the musical side, it’s Jagged Little Pill with 15, Moulin Rouge with 14, and Tina with 12, so Tony voters really made a point to skunk The Lightning Thief, even blocking Chris McCarrell from being a Tony nominee. Everything else went true to form, as far as I’m concerned, and I suspect MR will sweep most of the categories, with Tina likely only…[Read more]
Yeah, there was a prediction center event for this year’s nominations that shut down in late March and I had hoped would reopen once we had official word of proceeding with this year’s ceremony. It’s weird to see it closed and frozen in time, and, with Broadway now remaining closed until at least the end of next May, I don’t even understand…[Read more]

My proudest prediction was definitely here, predicting Maria Schrader to win for Unorthodox. She was the only nominee to be nominating for the entire program and she does remind me of Susanne Bier’s win for The Night Manager 4 years ago.
I’m also very glad that Ruffalo held on to win here, despite many naysayers. I wasn’t the biggest fan of his…[Read more]
Good for Succession, but, man those acting wins really confused me! I was braced for Strong and Crudup. But Garner repeating? And Zendaya winning the same award that Angela Lansbury couldn’t win for 12 years in a row (I know, it’s a different television academy now, but still). If there is any silver lining to so many productions being delayed, it…[Read more]

Nothing much to say here. I don’t think that Schitt’s Creek deserved a total sweep, as I really admired the third season of TMMM, but also shows like The Good Place and The Kominsky Method. However, it was nice to see that wedding like celebratory atmosphere in that Canadian tent.
Nate replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmys Night #5: Predictions and Reactions in the forum Television 1 month ago
A little delayed, but here are my reactions to the last creative arts ceremony:
I had hoped that there was Big Mouth momentum, but somehow Rick and Morty wins animated program!
I am sorry about Britell losing to Göransson and kudos to the 5 people that predicted Godfather of Harlem to win main title design!
I am glad for Stan Lathan, but…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmys Night #4 on Thursday: Predictions and Reactions in the forum Television 1 month, 1 week ago
Ah, finally, here are some big surprises!
I was first surprised with Forky Asks A Question (which I should have realized would be swept up in general Disney goodwill over Robot Chicken), but then shocked at All For Us winning for music and lyrics!
Like many, I also thought that Unorthodox’s main title theme music would win out over Hollywood.…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmys Night #3 on Wednesday: Predictions and Reactions in the forum Television 1 month, 1 week ago
OK, no predictions center categories this night, but still an interesting evening of winners! As should have been expected, The Mandalorian and Watchmen nabbed a lot of the visual tech prizes, but it was also nice to see the wealth spread to many other shows as well!
Nate replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmys Night #2 on Tuesday: Predictions and Reactions in the forum Television 1 month, 1 week ago
Yeah, 4/4 on predictions center categories for Night Two! 5th consecutive win for John Oliver’s writing staff, 4th consecutive win (and 10th overall) for Don Roy King’s directing, 4th consecutive win for SNL in the program category, and 2nd consecutive win for Live in Front of a Studio Audience.
I am surprised that Lorne Michaels or any SNL…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmys Night #1 on Monday: Predictions and Reactions in the forum Television 1 month, 1 week ago
Alright, I went 3 for 3 on Night One, probably the only time I’ll ever predict every winner correctly at GoldDerby, certainly at the Emmys (the predictions center hasn’t been updated to reflect The Apollo over Becoming, so I’m enjoying it while it lasts)! And I did it by using the old Emmy rule of predicting what’s won before, with Queer Eye and…[Read more]

Ah, the topic I was wondering if anyone was going to post for the last month and I was preparing to post after the awards.
Personally, I don’t think Watchmen would have done nearly as well if it went drama as if it went limited. I don’t think that any of the male actors would have got in and maybe King and Smart could have made it, along with…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Categories for Creative Arts and Primetime Emmy ceremonies in the forum Television 2 months, 2 weeks ago
This makes total sense, especially considering everything is virtual. No more rushed speeches and long ceremonies! And I suspect Variety Talk is the only variety program kept on the telecast because one of the nominees is hosting.
So, for those who may understand the difference in voting patterns between the Motion Picture and Television Academies, would the fact that Ruffalo’s nomination is the only nomination for his project really be such an obstacle to his winning an Emmy when so many lead performances have won Oscars as their project’s only nomination, largely due to…[Read more]
