I’m also bummed about the lack of songs, but do we think (assuming the movies actually good) this could help its oscar chances? No songs and no animated sidekick definitely give this movie a more “serious” feel than some past live action disney adaptations.July 1, 2019 at 5:06 pm #1202958323
I think Killing Eve WOULD have been the most poised to beat Game of Thrones, but the sophomore slump ruined it’s chances. It was the hot new toy last year, Sandra Oh’s buzz was huge and would’ve just gotten bigger, and if the quality had maintained it wouldve been the clear alternative. Especially if PWB had stayed on (which probably wouldve solved the quality issue) then the dual buzz of KE and Fleabag would’ve been pretty big. Too bad the season did take a pretty significant drop on quality (and I say that as someone who ranked season 1 their number 1 drama of the year), but I’m still holding out hope.June 27, 2019 at 2:00 pm #1202954149
IT’S HAPPENED! My roommates and I are having a meltdown over our group message.
PS. How much of a f** you to Netflix would it be if the show started getting even a bit of emmy love for it’s next season (which most likely won’t happen, but is probably more like than ever now due to it’s increased profile from all this)June 27, 2019 at 1:28 pm #1202954118
I don’t have Hinkle. I’m not sure why everyone is so confident about her considering she didn’t get in last year…
Same I’ve never had her in my predictions. She didn’t get in last year, she’s not an established Emmy favorite, and despite getting more to do in the first couple episodes which made it seem like she’d be more prominent, she basically faded back into the background after the paris storyline. They nominated THREE women from SNL last year when they easily could have nominated her if they wanted to. I am predicting Maisel to go up in acting noms but I think it’ll be Luke Kirby in a less competitive categoryJune 25, 2019 at 6:41 pm #1202951834
the critics choice awards nominate every television actress under the sun. They like nominating the underdog. And the HFPA like to nominate veterans like Debra Messing and Candace Bergen, even if their shows aren’t quite as good. I don’t think the emmys are quite as open.
but neither nominated her for the “first” season and both did for the second. There at the very least is more visibility on her, and just as often as the emmy’s surprise us with being forward thinking they surprise us with being more old fashioned than we thought. I’m not predicting her, but now that it’s been pointed out I won’t be at all surprised if she gets inJune 25, 2019 at 4:06 pm #1202951707
Speaking of Mullally… are we underestimating Debra Messing? She got a golden globe and critics choice nomination this year while she didn’t last year (I’m not 100% sure on CC). She could be ahead of the likes of Applegate.
You’re right, those both were new this year. I hadn’t thought about it as a possibility but when you point that out, plus the article goldderby did last week about her big episode, I’m wondering are we underestimating her? Voters still clearly have a fondness for the show, I’m now kind of wondering if she does break inJune 19, 2019 at 11:41 am #1202944469
I feel like program is between Game of Thrones and Chernobyl, no? They clearly just felt like they couldnt not nominate GoT there since they didnt nominate it anywhere else, so they don’t seem to be that hot on it. But at the same time Chernobyl feels like the only ones that reached near enough cultural relevance to justifiably beat Game of Thrones for this category.June 18, 2019 at 3:10 pm #1202943389
I have heard only good things about it and it’s on my watch list. Also, Sophie Rundle is in this show, who is having quite the year with Gentleman Jack and of course Bodyguard. Although her character was my least favourite in Bodyguard, I really like Rundle and I do think she is a talented actress. Hope she is in more stuff in the future!
Rundle is very, very good on Gentleman Jack. Way better than I was expecting after only knowing her from Bodyguard where she (I now think through no fault of her own) was just stuck playing a really underwritten characterJune 13, 2019 at 3:37 pm #1202936572
Am I the only one who’s never noticed any problem with her accent? haha
But I know other people do but since we’ve never gotten any details about her backstory I just tell myself eh, maybe celeste grew up in australia until she was 18 or whatever and then moved to the states. We’re never told anything that contradicts that so why not just think that’s trueJune 13, 2019 at 10:57 am #1202936242
This is reaaaally tough. Ruth Wilson is excellent in a challenging role, Joey King does really good work in a role that’s written more for sensationalism than as an actual person and she overcomes that, Emma Stone gives her best performance in years in my opinion, Amy Adams is so good, especially in the middle episodes when Sharp Objects actually let her be a character and not just a function in the plot, and Patricia Arquette and Michelle Williams both arguably gave the performances of their careers and some of the best I’ve ever seen. After Dannemora I was positive there was no way anyone was going to top Arquette for years, but then Fosse/Verdon came along and I have to give the edge to Williams, who I’ve never fully bought the hype for before but who really surprised me in this. What she did on that show is fascinating to watch, and the perfect mix of performative and natural and charismatic and diminutive and harsh but sympathetic. I have to give the slight edge to Williams but I feel really bad Arquette won’t win for a just about equally jaw dropping performance where she found real humanity while not even attempting to soften the characters hard edges, and Adams, Stone, and Wilson would all have been deserving winners in other years too.June 11, 2019 at 11:42 am #1202933053
the indiewire website is also having a lot of issues, and the websites are in the same family right? this might be a brand wide issue and not something done on purposeJune 11, 2019 at 11:41 am #1202933052
Yea don’t love this new format, and how can I get to the popular forums? I like to see what’s been commented on recently just for fun rather than always seeking out specific topics.
You now have to go to Forums > Views > Latest Topics which imo is much more of a hassle than the old reliable sidebar.
Edit: I don’t know if the quotes being so big is a good stylistic choice… The focus should be on the new post.
Is there a way to get to forums from the home page? I haven’t seen any button and just searched goldderby forums separately on google to get here.
Also can someone tell me what that potted succulent has to do with this being goldderby? lolJune 11, 2019 at 11:38 am #1202933049
Also so now on the home page rather than just seeing the article headlines and being able to pick which I want to read/look interesting, I have to scroll over entire articles I have no interest in just to see if there’s something I do want to read lower down on the page? I don’t get itJune 11, 2019 at 11:24 am #1202933027

Dead to Me really should’ve gone drama. It frankly is a drama, and a pretty good one at that, with the occasional bit of dark humor. Like I don’t even consider it a dark comedy along the lines of You’re the Worst or Fleabag, I frankly consider it more of a drama than OITNB. Plus with Drama is probably more empty than comedy right now, I could maybe see a scenario where applegate or cardellini sneaks in over someone like Christine Baranski who I’m pretty sure is in 6th place right now.
