I just saw the preview and now I see how the filmmakers are going the way of The Big Short and Vice but without Adam McKay, so I guess it’s the Randolph touch. There are so few contenders in the predictions center for Best Actress that I just threw Theron in. I’ll probably also add Lithgow eventually. It’s been 36 years since his back-to-back…[Read more]
No Joey King for The Act? No Rami Malek for Mr. Robot? I assume you’re still uploading contenders, like the This Is Us leading men, as the rest of the cast is in there, but thanks for the early activation!
I had been thinking that Fleabag just wasn’t eligible to compete in series based on the HFPA eligibility rules (https://www.goldenglobes.com/sites/default/files/media/golden_globe_awards_eligibility_descriptions_final.pdf), but it turns out that this season of Fleabag runs for a total of 152 program minutes, 2 more than is necessary, and therefore…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Time to brag: what predictions are you most proud of? in the forum Television 3 weeks, 3 days ago
Holding strong to Bandersnatch, despite the Deadwood drumbeats. But I am also glad that Black Mirror can’t compete in Television Movie next year, with none of the episodes reaching 75 minutes, as none of this season’s three episodes were as good as the three winners.
That was the strangest Emmy opening I can remember since the 2008 show with all of the reality hosts.
In comedy, I was happy about the Maisel wins and was prepared for a sweep, but, after Fleabag won the directing award, I had a feeling PWB would win for lead actress. Even though I was rooting for Brosnahan, I am glad that JLD lost and that…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmy Awards: Sunday Ceremony (Watch Live Coverage) in the forum Television 1 month ago
I am very happy about all of the wins for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, even though I was really hoping for justice for Peter MacNicol, and hope it does well next Sunday too. Chernobyl really dominated over When They See Us and Fosse/Verdon, but it is more of a visual piece, so I guess it shouldn’t be that surprising. And I can’t believe that the…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Creative Arts Emmy Awards: Saturday Ceremony (Watch and Comment Live) in the forum Television 1 month ago
I am so happy for Rachel Bloom finally winning an Emmy! And the Live In Front Of A Studio Audience win was so well deserved. Otherwise, Free Solo’s sweep and so many repeat winners dragged down tonight’s ceremony for me, so I’m hoping for more surprises in the next two!
I might have missed something, but where did “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” go? It’s not in the predictions center at all anymore. I know it received mixed reviews, but I still think it may have a chance somewhere.

Bingo. SFU only won 9 Emmys during its entire run: the 2 for Clarkson, 2 for Casting, 2 for Makeup, Main Title Design, Main Title Theme Music, and directing for the pilot. Clarkson is likely the only chance for Sharp Objects to win an Emmy, especially with the program having aired over a year ago now, and there doesn’t seem to be a groundswell of…[Read more]
Great list! It looks to me like many of these actors, particularly those in the comedy races, likely suffered from the lack of likability of their characters, but then some characters, like many of those in the drama categories, weren’t exciting enough to get voters’ attention. So the best Emmy bait would be over-the-top characters with something…[Read more]
@ Sam K, this is a great list, but you’ve got a few inaccuracies here. Kirstie Alley, Kim Delaney, and Dylan McDermott were Emmy nominated for their Globe nominated roles, as were Hugh Bonneville, Debra Messing, and Allison Tolman in different categories. And 12 Angry Men was nominated for and Wit won the Emmy for Television Movie.
All that…[Read more]
This promises to be a very entertaining evening. I’m already looking forward to Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton performing and curious who’ll do “You’re No Good.” Tom Hanks will have to be there for the Sally Field tribute. And the evening will have to end with a rocking version of “September.”
Nate replied to the topic Emmys Variety/Reality/General Nominations Reactions in the forum Television 3 months ago
Nailed It and James Corden for host were complete surprises to me.
I guess the Tracey Ullman love had to end at some point, but I am glad that Amy Sedaris and Sarah Silverman were still remembered.
And it looks like there is still love lost towards Jimmy Fallon, as it looks to me like he didn’t turned up anywhere this year except for short form…[Read more]
The nominations went pretty much as the GoldDerby odds said they would, with Chernobyl and When They See Us building momentum from their late releases, but I was relieved that Catch-22 was overrated in the odds.
I a little disappointed for the Maniac shutout and only the 2 program nominations for Black Mirror (not even writing this time), but I…[Read more]
The series and lead acting nominations for Schitt’s Creek has to be the surprise of the day!
It turned out that only Brosnahan and Louis-Dreyfus were safe for lead actress, and the battle has to still be between the two of them.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was completely forgotten, as was Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so I guess the Academy wasn’t into…[Read more]
Homecoming really got skunked, with just a cinematography nomination to show.
I am so happy for so many This Is Us nominations, particularly for Ventimiglia returning and Moore finally making it in, but really sorry that Metz couldn’t make it back in.
How did Bodyguard only get in for series and for writing?
But the story has to be the 32…[Read more]

It’s about time for the show to end, as this has been an even slower three years of law school than on The Paper Chase. But I do hope that there is a great death scene or something juicy for Ophelia so that Cicely Tyson can finally win that long overdue 4th Emmy.
