What about Blackwater! I probably wouldve ranked that number 1 if it was an option, instead I ended up not going with any GoT episodeSeptember 18, 2019 at 2:29 pm #1203085176
Whatever happened to that Matt Bomer biopic of him what was supposed to be happening? Was originally theatrical then I think got moved to HBO, but then nothing.September 17, 2019 at 6:50 pm #1203083352
I’ve had Succession winning writing since nominations came out, I knew it wasn’t the frontrunner but I didn’t think it was so controversial. It just seems like the most “writery” show with all the fast dialogue and hilarious banter. And clearly that guy agrees.September 17, 2019 at 3:54 pm #1203083125
Just came here to say I was actually really impressed with Moore’s clip (I gave up on This is Us after 2 episodes). Good for her.September 16, 2019 at 7:22 pm #1203081294
Is it possible to get two in the same category? If anyone would, I feel like Robbie would for Supporting.
No they have a rule that performers cannot be nominated twice in the same category. Which is weird because it’s allowed in every other category, and has happened multiple times in score and costume design, and even at least once in director.September 10, 2019 at 11:39 am #1203067859
oh yea they had absolutely noo romantic chemistry. Their scenes where they were supposed to be flirty or bantery just felt so awkward. It honestly felt like siblings trying to flirt, it was so weird.September 1, 2019 at 4:02 pm #1203052390
Judy potentially. 63 metascore now, could go lower.
Potentially, but it’s at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes right now. Even the more negative reviews are leaning good not great (which feels about right for 63 on metacritic). I doubt it goes much lower than that.August 27, 2019 at 3:48 pm #1203043425
I feel like if Emilia Clarke wins (which I unfortunately think is very possible) it’ll be a Bohemian Rhapsody best editing situation. Hear me out:
Despite the (as went viral) pretty poor reception of the editing in the film, this narrative built: that regardless of the end product, the editor deserved an A for effort for being able to cobble something together out of a VERY complicated shoot. And something extremely successful, no doubt.
I think the people who love Game of Thrones (of which there are clearly a lot) could vote for Emilia because they love her. But even people who thought this season was bad, might still vote for her because the perception is that she did the best she could with the shitty material. Even if the end product wasn’t great, people respect the amount of effort she had to put in in order to be even as good as she was with such awkwardly written material (I happen to be one of the people in the camp that agrees the writing was shitty, but it mightve been the best Clarke ever was on the show, which to be clear imo still isn’t good enough to win). So long story short is I could see her winning not because no one thinks this season was bad, but as a pat on the back for dealing with the shitty writing and coming out the other side unscathed (despite ALL the complaints people had about her arc, the blame fell pretty unanimously on the writing, none at all on her).August 27, 2019 at 11:56 am #1203043118
join the winning team honey.
I’m sure Theron will be great, but will the story hit a little close to home? I know people win for playing real people all the time, but how often is it for basically playing someone in the present? It happens less often in general in Best Actress, there the last one I can find who won for playing a real life contemporary figure was Sandra Bullock, and Leigh Anne Touhy is hardly a celebrity like Megyn Kelly. Before that the last one I could find is, ironically, Charlize Theron when she won way back in 2003 for Monster, playing Aileen Wournos, and even that story was set 12 years previously. The closest comparison would probably be Julia Roberts, who won in 2000 when her film would’ve been set in the early 90s. And before that, I didn’t notice any for like decades. Didn’t see any examples at all in best Actor either. Point is, it’s pretty rare/almost unprecedented for someone to win an oscar for playing a CONTEMPORARY real life figure. Emmy’s, sure. Oscars, not so much.August 26, 2019 at 3:41 pm #1203041065
And people forget that Wright was almost a borderline supporting character in the first couple seasons (I remember season one there was even a period where Netflix was debating between whether to submit her lead or supporting at the Emmy’s). And that interview was episode was the first time she had about 50/50 screentime with Spacey, so it felt so obvious (not to mention the great material). But I remember she ended up going with a tape where she had MUCH less screentime (I think only like 15 minutes out of the hour) but a more traditional emmy bait scene (if I recall she has one scene where she breaks down on a stairwell crying, and that was about it).August 19, 2019 at 6:29 pm #1203030898
I originally assumed this was referring to performance, but it seems like your kind of also going for character, so I’ve got one of each for the same show. Six Feet Under may be the best show to ever air on television, with one of the best ensembles of the medium, but I could never get over these two weak links:
Matthew St. Charles (Keith) as a performer and the character of Frederico (played by Freddy Rodriguez).
In a cast full of game changing performances St Charles was just always a weak link, he seemed inexperienced and flat, and I never bought him as a real living breathing person, even though Keith was a great character. Like i genuinely was such a bland and unbelievable actor got cast in a major role. I did not find it surprising when I found out he was literally the only main cast member never to be nominated for an emmy.
Frederico meanwhile, while played well enough by Rodriguez I guess, just kind sucked. He was whiny and rude, and at one point homophobic. Whenever he wanted something from the Fisher’s, he would whine that they don’t tread him like part of the family despite everything he’s done for them, but then whenever they need something from him he’d immediately pull away and say he’s not a part of the family. Then add all the shitty, self centered ways he treated his wife and his family, and he just sucked.August 19, 2019 at 2:24 pm #1203030555
Am I the only one who thinks this looks kinda… bad? Looks all over the place, is this about a political election? A school election? Is Ben Platt supposed to be a teenager? And wasn’t this supposed to be a musical? This looks more Scream Queens than Glee to me, frankly.August 13, 2019 at 4:20 pm #1203022595
I have a gut feeling Timothee could get in supporting actor. Swoon-worthy romantic lead is how people like their Chalamet, I think gritty drug addict didn’t appeal to people as much.August 13, 2019 at 4:16 pm #1203022575
I feel like Jo in Little Women is sort of the perfect blend of Ronan’s three previous nominated performances, and the remake factor might actually work in her favor with a “role she was born to play” narrative happening. Just a thought.August 13, 2019 at 3:47 pm #1203022501
So I’m guessing no mention of Alfie Allen either? Kit Harington is starting to campaign on his own. He’s on Kelly and Ryan this week as well as Gwendoline Christie. Alfie Allen will be on James Corden this week. HBO is making it way too obvious they are gunning for Maisie Williams for SA. Peter Dinklage doesn’t need any help.
Ahh yes correct! Even I totally forgot about Alfie Allen haha. Yep, no mention of Allen either. I’ve edited the original post to include that now
