Halsey’s new single and music video are INCREDIBLE! I’m obsessed. Her best music video by far.
also, IGOR by Tyler is really good too.
“Nightmare” is ok. She’s doing a great job of staying visible. I still think “Without Me” is the strongest SOTY contender this yearApril 3, 2019 at 9:00 am #1202838543
Phoenix will absolutely be a contender. He even has th Oscar season release dateMarch 11, 2019 at 12:50 am #1202812009
The final shot of the finale was beautiful. I’m glad we got a hopeful ending for Pete Holmes. He deserves an Emmy nomination for this show. He carried each episode with grace. He’s been regarded as a standup talent for years, but his dramatic range on this show was outstanding.
I’m heartbroken and angry that Crashing is over after three very short seasons. This show deserved a longer life.March 11, 2019 at 12:43 am #1202811994
John Mulaney was brilliant on the final episode of Crashing tonight. Obviously he’s already a front runner in this category for SNL, but his was outstanding on the Crashing finaleMarch 7, 2019 at 2:54 pm #1202808055
Interesting note on this season:
Crashing’s total viewers are up 4.5% this season, despite its lead-in High Maintenance being down 44.62%.
Any growth after a weak lead-in is impressive. I’m not optimistic about renewal chances thoughMarch 6, 2019 at 9:30 am #1202806059
This Sunday is the season finale with guest star John Mulaney. Social media for both the series and Judd Apatow are cautiously calling this the “finale.” HBO has not renewed Crashing or its lead-in High Maintenance yet. This episode may have been written as a series closer in the event that it isn’t renewed

Pete jumps at the opportunity of a lifetime to open for John Mulaney at Town Hall, but the gig leaves him in an awkward situation.February 19, 2019 at 11:00 am #1202781614
Does Green Book’s box office performance during Oscar season hint at some momentum? It seems to be the only release that gained traction. While that doesn’t ultimately mean much (bigger Nomination period hits like Hidden Figures & American Sniper didn’t benefit from box office), it does suggest a warming opinion towards it.
Also, Green Book has narrowly beaten Shape of Water’s gross and would be the highest grossing BP winner since Argo if it manages to beat Roma. Box office legs from November through February is an impressive feat.
Again, I acknowledge this is a fairly stupid figure to analyze, BUT if it does win, the numbers will be suddenly brought into conversation.February 18, 2019 at 1:07 pm #1202780686
I was literally replying to your point about the show’s lack of nominations in the past 2 years. I should’ve said “its Emmy history”February 18, 2019 at 12:01 pm #1202780625
I stand by my statement that it should be part of this year’s discussion. The series is hitting its stride in Season 3. You already know Veep, Maisel & Barry are in. Atlanta, Master oh None, Silicon Valley are all out. And I personally think Crashing would be a worthy nominee, regardless of Emmy history.February 18, 2019 at 11:21 am #1202780579
Madeline Wise from “Crashing” should absolutely be on the radar for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She’s been a great addition to the cast
And the “Crashing” episode about sexism in comedy (“MC, Middle, Headliner”) should be in the discussion for writing (Written by Dave King & Mike Lawrence & Pete Holmes) & directing (Oren Brimer.)
With Silicon Valley out of the running, this episode is a strong contender for one of these open slots.February 18, 2019 at 10:40 am #1202780531
Madeline Wise has been amazing this season and should absolutely be a contender for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. This week’s episode (S3E5, “Mom & Kay”) had her clashing with Pete’s mom and she was excellent!
Crashing 21: Mom and Kat
Written by Judd Apatow & Pete Holmes
Directed by Gillian Robespierre
During a tour stop, Pete pays a visit to his parents and introduces them to Kat, who notices the uncomfortably close relationship he has with his overbearing mom. As he tries to keep the peace, Pete grows increasingly trapped between the two most important women in his life.February 12, 2019 at 9:28 am #1202773437
This week’s episode (S3E4, premiered Sunday Feb 10th) is generating a lot of press for taking on sexism in the comedy world. HBO will surely submit this week’s episode “MC, Middle, Headliner” for a writing Emmy. It takes on the older male chauvinist comedians struggling in the #MeToo era, while also showing the sexism women in the industry face from the booking side as well.
Jamie Lee gives her best performance of the series, perhaps enough for a nomination (she hasn’t had much screentime this season after breaking up with Pete’s character, hopefully that changes.)
But Dov Davidson as the misogynistic comedian Jason also shines as the villain of the episode. It’s a brave performance that is very uncomfortable to watch.
