Plus voters are going to be very aware that they can honor Reese Witherspoon with nominations for producing in Best Drama Series (Big Little Lies & The Morning Show) and Best Miniseries (Little Fires Everywhere). That’s 3 potential (likely) nominations right there. That gives them an excuse to skip her over in the Acting categories.
Back to this point, I also wanted to raise that, if voters are aware of producing credits and would furthermore use that to select others in acting categories (which I highly doubt), then the same would apply to Kerry Washington, who is executive producer of American Son (which could easily get into a sparse Television Movie category) and this past year’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience (which will easily get into the Variety Special (Live) category) as well as Little Fires Everywhere.March 26, 2020 at 12:22 pm #1203395513
While it makes good strategic sense to hold the show for the fall, it was already completed, so I’m trying to understand the statement that this was “in light of current events.” Is it because HBO decision makers think that the plot would be too triggering?March 26, 2020 at 10:06 am #1203395260
Valerie Perrine likely would have won an Oscar for Lenny if she went supporting, as she already won NBR and NYFCC in the supporting category.March 17, 2020 at 11:46 am #1203384526
Has anyone ever been nominated in Guest for different shows the same year?
Not in the same category, but in 1989 Jack Gilford was nominated for Guest Comedy Actor for The Golden Girls and Guest Drama Actor for thirtysomething, in 1991 Colleen Dewhurst was nominated for Guest Comedy Actress for Murphy Brown and Guest Drama Actress for Avonlea, in 1993 Gwen Verdon was nominated for Guest Comedy Actress for Dream On and Guest Drama Actress for Homicide: Life on the Street, in 1994 Marlee Matlin was nominated for Guest Comedy Actress for Seinfeld and Guest Drama Actress for Picket Fences, in 2001 Jean Smart was nominated for Guest Comedy Actress for Frasier and Guest Drama Actress for The District, in 2005 Cloris Leachman was nominated for Guest Comedy Actress for Malcolm in the Middle and Guest Drama Actress for Joan of Arcadia, in 2012 Michael J. Fox was nominated for Guest Comedy Actor for Curb Your Enthusiasm and Guest Drama Actor for The Good Wife, in 2013 Nathan Lane was nominated for Guest Comedy Actor for Modern Family and Guest Drama Actor for The Good Wife, and in 2016 Laurie Metcalf was nominated for Guest Comedy Actress for The Big Bang Theory and Guest Drama Actress for Horace and Pete.March 13, 2020 at 6:14 am #1203380112
Personally, I hope that the show still goes on in June. Honestly, this season felt relatively lackluster to me anyway and wasn’t personally anticipating any new productions to really shake things up. I also hope that this may serve as a wakeup call to producers stacking so many productions at the end of the season, when it’s been proven several times in recent years that shows that open earlier in the season can still be remembered come Tony time.March 13, 2020 at 6:02 am #1203380092
There’s a good running list here: https://deadline.com/2020/03/coronavirus-tv-shows-production-delayed-1202881997/March 5, 2020 at 10:52 am #1203372195
I can hardly wait until the Netflix FYC website is updated (I suspect it’ll be sometime in April), but, so far, I approve of moving Ryder and Paltrow to lead.
Putting Ryder in lead might feel false, but I think it’s more about clearing room for Millie Bobby Brown and hopefully Ryder finally gets her long overdue first Emmy nomination for The Plot Against America.
And Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series is so wide open for nomination possibilities that I get placing Paltrow there, as she could reasonably sneak in as a former Emmy winner and daughter of a 2-time Emmy winner and a 9-time Emmy nominee.March 4, 2020 at 10:11 am #1203370872
This is such a strong group of actresses that I could see any one of them getting a second win with the right part. All of them received subsequent Golden Globe Award nominations for their film work and most received subsequent Oscar nominations, so they have definitely been on the radar for another win. If you asked me a few years before their second wins, I never would have considered McDormand or Zellweger likely, so I really just hope all of them continue to get the work that befits their talent.March 2, 2020 at 7:14 am #1203366589
I agree that this glut of limited series (and I am so glad that they are limited series) in the last few months of the season is ridiculous.
Regarding HBO’s programming, I suspect that I Know This Much Is True will airs Mondays at 9 after The Plot Against America concludes, while The Third Day will be on Mondays at 10 after this season of My Brilliant Friend ends, with The Undoing starting on Sundays at 9 after this season of Westworld is over. Wow, that’s a lot just right there.
Then Netflix is dropping Hollywood on May 1 and The Eddy on May 8, so Stateless really should be held for next season.
And then between FX, Hulu, and FX on Hulu, it’s difficult to tell what will be prioritized.
Showtime should also hold The Good Lord Bird for the sake of promoting The Loudest Voice for whatever it can get.
Even Manhunt: Deadly Games, which has Emmy bait Judith Light in a role that was just recognized with an Oscar nomination, isn’t even in the predictions center and will likely get overlooked anyway, already disadvantaged by airing on Spectrum, due to all of this competition.February 26, 2020 at 11:44 am #1203361453
No Jesse Plemons for El Camino?February 9, 2020 at 8:31 pm #1203340261
I didn’t get the opening at all. Steve Martin and Chris Rock just gave a glimpse of what it would look like to have Oscar hosts. And then having introducers for each category, which was a nice way to get more people on stage, also slowed down the pace, especially since they introduced themselves and the presenters, so I’m glad producers at least spread it out more after a few categories.
I didn’t like the clip packages before the acting categories rather than after each nominee was announced. And was Margot Robbie’s clip package deliberately done to show everything but her scenes with Kate McKinnon?
I loved the international presentation of Into the Unknown! And the surprise of Eminem presenting Lose Yourself 17 years after it not being performed when he won!
The choice of presenters for certain categories again appear to intentionally create awkward moments, with Mindy Kaling presenting to her Inside Out producers and Timothée Chalamet and Penélope Cruz not presenting to Greta Gerwig and Pedro Almodóvar. But I’m glad that there were so many costars presenting together, as that helped make the banter feel more natural. And, as great as all of the Parasite wins were, despite Hildur Guðnadóttir’s beautiful win and speech, women were underrepresented with wins again, with even James Mangold getting more attention than Greta Gerwig as a Best Director snubee. Thank goodness for Natalie Portman’s cape!February 8, 2020 at 4:56 pm #1203335593
What a great bunch of awards! I’m especially pleased by the wins for The Farewell and Uncut Gems, as it shows what might have been if the Oscars had more expansive thinking this year. Even the win for Zellweger felt right, as she does indeed have indie street cred from her nominated work in Love and a .45 and The Whole Wide World. It’s too bad things likely won’t be nearly this satisfying tomorrow night, although we can still hope!
