Especially now based on that trailer, I really hope that Jeff Wilbusch, the reigning Satellite Award winner from an Emmy winning program here in a Tony winning role, can get added to the predictions center.May 10, 2021 at 4:20 pm #1204249975
If Jean Smart win this year, she will have lead, supporting and guest awards. Does anyone else has this? In the same field?
I think Janney, but in drama and lead/supporting for the same role, can’t think of anyone else.
Betty White: supporting for The Mary Tyler Moore Show, lead for The Golden Girls, and guest for The John Larroquette Show and Saturday Night Live.May 5, 2021 at 6:05 am #1204243317
FX’s FYC website has updated. Maybe it is still working out some things like in past years, but there are so far a few interesting placements: Black Narcissus in limited series, Jason Schwartzman as lead on Fargo, and Angelica Ross as the only guest submission for Pose.April 25, 2021 at 8:15 pm #1204225964
I was concerned about the music cues until hearing The Electric Company for Rita Moreno! But hearing Diane Warren’s first Oscar nominated song soon after her 12th loss does sting a little.
Otherwise, the show did indeed drag, even with a surprisingly quickened In Memoriam segment.
And, while I was skeptical of “the game,” especially so late in the program, Glenn Close was indeed the highlight as far as I’m concerned. Until Frances McDormand, who thankfully showed up, did her thing. And in short order too!April 23, 2021 at 2:46 am #1204216629
I am not surprised at Nomadland doing so well, but am very surprised at Mulligan winning over Spirit Award fave McDormand. I am glad at Youn winning so much, but am disappointed at wins for Minari being increasingly limited to awards for her performance. And Sound of Metal goes 3 for 3, including Ahmed over Boseman? Other than all of that, the big surprise has to be Quo Vadis, Aida? winning for Best International Film, and I would really enjoy it winning the Oscar over Another Round. And I am so glad for Crip Camp winning, as that is my dark horse pick in the Best Documentary category at the Oscars.April 19, 2021 at 10:16 am #1204209440
Dave is not debuting on FX until June.
Now I am very glad I took it and Burd out to get the 100/1 odds on Master of None and Ansari. What does FX have in terms of comedy programming for this year’s Emmys? Just imports Breeders and Mr Inbetween?April 11, 2021 at 2:57 pm #1204194479
Yep, BAFTAs are ultimately still gonna BAFTA, even with the twists offered by the new nominating system. I managed to get 72%, despite doing much worse at all other awards, just by going with what seemed most BAFTA-friendly to me (well-known Brits and, in absence of well-known Brits, whomever seemed most Oscar-likely). The biggest boosts to me seem to be for Sound of Metal in editing and My Octopus Teacher in documentary feature, building on earlier surprise wins in the season. I’m not quite ready to switch my Oscar predictions to them, but, if they do ultimately prevail, I’ll remember this moment as being pivotal.April 4, 2021 at 6:59 pm #1204176947
Yes to WW84!
I’m relieved that Kaluuya’s muting was just at the Globes, as his speeches just keep getting better!
Very happy for Youn!
Wow on the Viola Davis win!
I will never tire of Mrs. Boseman’s acceptance speeches.
And while I was hoping for Minari, the win for The Trial of the Chicago 7 makes sense.April 4, 2021 at 6:43 pm #1204176660
The Mandalorian over Lovecraft Country?
I was not a big fan of the Ted Lasso opening.
So glad for Mark Ruffalo, but why was Bill Camp in his car?
Taylor-Joy expectedly won, and so glad Blanchett could join this time!
Sudeikis seriously needs to work on his speeches.
I’m relieved that O’Hara’s husband wasn’t next to her this time. And I’m so thrilled for the Schitt’s Creek ensemble win!
I should have seen the Anderson win coming and I’m just glad Ozark won something for this season! And yay for Colman finally able to deliver a SAG acceptance speech!March 15, 2021 at 5:43 am #1204132678
Burstyn was robbed. I’m disappointed for Foster too.
No Mank in original screenplay? And no First Cow, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, or News of the World in adapted?
Lakeith Stanfield in supporting too? Wow!
No I’m Longer Here or La Llarona in International Film?
The Father in production design?
What is Love and Monsters?
Vinterberg was the directors’ branch surprise. Not too mad about him getting in over Sorkin.
And no Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom or One Night in Miami nominated for Best Picture is disappointing.March 15, 2021 at 3:08 am #1204131602
It was so nice to have the predictions center open for Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, and Tonys all open at the same time, but, finally, the Grammys show goes on!
In pre-telecast stand-alone categories, I am so glad that Tiffany Haddish didn’t get penalizing for speaking out about passing on the hosting gig, am shocked at the Rachel Maddow win, am disappointed at Frozen II losing twice, and, while I was cheering for Byrne, am happy that Jagged Little Pill won, if only to keep it on Tony voters’ minds during the last 24 hours of voting.
The outdoor wedding setup/forced laughter start to the main ceremony didn’t do anything for me.
In country, I’m relieved that Miranda Lambert won the televised award, but wish she managed to win more.
In rap, I did not think Megan Thee Stallion would do so well!
In R&B, I was very happy to see Beyoncé’s performance win set the record!
In rock, I can’t believe that Phoebe Bridgers was shut out, but am still very happy for Fiona Apple finally adding to her Grammy tally over 20 years later.
In pop, I was very surprised that Dua Lipa defeated Taylor Swift in the genre category before the reverse happened in the general field.
And, wow, did the general field really spread the wealth this year!
