Succession was more of a critics thing for it’s first season,
but, once the industry caught up wit it, the series became a everyones thing. It literally just won every industry award out there.
Even when they went head to head, The Crown couldn’t win anything over Sucession at the Emmys and other industry awards, except for SAG, which clearly hadn’t caught up with Succession yet.
Also I don’t see the queen’s death drawing votes for the series, since, in general, the royals are not painted on a good light in it and that probably won’t change, especially this upcoming season, with they focusing on the whole Diana mess, leading up to her death.September 23, 2022 at 4:56 pm #1205096444
I am aware of how it is way more dificult for Yeoh to get a juicy role than Robbie and I am not comparing them as performers, since it is irrelevant to mesure how overdue they are for an Oscar.
All I am saying is, thinking from a voter’s perspective, if it comes to who is more overdue to get a vote, I can see more people who watched Robbie on I, Tonya, Once Upon a Time on Hollywood or Bombshell and think it’s her time, than the same thing going for Yeoh, aka the one we didn’t nominate twenty years ago and probably have not seen on anything or caught their attention until now.September 23, 2022 at 1:44 pm #1205096175
I don’t think any contender is overdue for a win in this race and the closest to get that status is probably Michelle Williams, but, for those who think it will play a factor, how is Margot Robbie, with two nominations and being on four movies that were on the Oscar radar on the last ten years (Wolf of Wall Street; I, Tonya; Bombshell and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) not overdue, but Michelle Yeoh, with no nomination and starring in two movies that were on the Oscar radar twenty years ago is?
I think she can win, because there seems to be a lot of love for the movie and her performance, but the overdue narrative seems like a strech.September 23, 2022 at 1:27 pm #1205096161
I think it depends on who the frontrunners will be, if it’s Succession with the Crown in second and Pryce and West are going lead, or Succession with no one even close, like 2020, than Strong and Cox are probably going to be 1 and 2, but, if we have a scenario like this year, in which the second stronger show had a sole nominee, than the votesplit will hurt them.
We also just saw that in supporting, with The Morning Show losing steam with the acting branch and enough competition between the Squid and Succession guys to make Macfadyen and Culkin probably 1 and 2 after they lost in 2020.September 14, 2022 at 10:33 am #1205083545
Severance will be fine, they got 14 nominations, which is a lot for a first season show, and, I know there was a lot of passion for it here, but, at the end of the day, they lost the ones they should, given their competition.
I think the esemble will easily get nominated here, probably won’t be much of a threat to The Crown, but it’s win competitive at DGA and WGA.September 13, 2022 at 12:23 pm #1205082336
I echo the terrible use of time with a lot of bad skits taking space that should have gone to nominee’s clips and winner’s speeches.
Another thing that bottered me was the time they took to show the winners reactions, I understand it’s probably tought to have every nominee on camera at the time of the announcement, but you gotta be ready to cut to the winners in time to get their reactions and, with some, like Mcfadyen, they did that like five, ten seconds after.
Also, when are we gonna go back to the serie’s themes playing when they win categories other than the main one, I get that it’s probably tiring when you have a sweep, but it’s still better than some random 80s song, especially when we have iconic ones, like Succession’s and White Lotus. I’d rather listen to those ten times than have the winner walk to the stage at the sound of Shake Your Boody or Celebration.September 13, 2022 at 12:19 am #1205081231
I get your point, but he lost to a contender he probably won’t be facing at SAG, and with Abbott Elementary probably taking Ensemble, him being on it can only help.
But again, SAG does love it’s veterans, so i wouldn’t be shocked if Shalhoub wins again (and it would be deserved, he’s iconic in s4)
. But a supporting performance who lost the Emmy, given by someone who is not a veteran coming back some months later and beating a lead, especially one with two lead emmys under his belt? I would bet my house on that not happening, series strenght only takes you so far, as we saw with Evan Peters this year.September 12, 2022 at 11:28 pm #1205081177
Hader lost to a experienced beloved actor in Shalhoub both times, there is no way he is losing to Williams, who couldn’t even overcome Goldstein in a three way votesplit.September 12, 2022 at 9:24 pm #1205081064
I don’t blame Snook for losing the Emmys to Garner, since she is clearly stronger than Ozark itself and more than proved she can stand for herself with the nomination for Inventing Anna and even getting it into limited series, but Snook should’ve won SAG over Jung Ho-yeon.
But I think Jeremy Strong, Matthew Macfadyen being the only acting winners from the main cast for the seasons in which they turned the tables on their “abusers” in Logan and Shiv doesn’t bold well for Snook, because likability, at least, for the season, seems to have played a part and I don’t see Shiv getting likable in future seasons.August 15, 2022 at 4:56 pm #1205046836
Am I the only one who feels Succession should not get another Drama Series win this year? I liked Severance, Stranger Things, Squid Game and Euphoria far more than season 3. It was disappointing after that promising season 2 finale, in my opinion.
Even though season 3 is not as good as season 2, I think it still better than anything else on television by a long mile, so they will be making the right choice next month.August 14, 2022 at 8:22 pm #1205045857
I didn’t watch Scenes from a Marriage and couldn’t go past three episodes of Under the Banner of Heaven, but I agree that Firth was better, even though I am fine with Keaton winning.
The thing is the series strenght is too much of a factor in this limited races. It’s just one season, and, on a unlimited ballot, no one is got time to build momentum or retain it if their show bomb. Either you are on a strong show and are nominated and in contention or you aren’t and not gonna get nominated or not be in contention for the win, regardless of the performance.
It’s pretty clear they liked White Lotus and Dopesick a lot, Pam and Tommy and Dropout to some degree, and the others are there without any chance to win anything, which is a shame, cause we could have very interesting races between Seyfried vs. Qualley and Keaton vs. Firth, but both ended when nominations came out, and the supporting ones are relegated to how much the votesplitt will hurt Coolidge and Bartlet.August 14, 2022 at 3:34 pm #1205045325
I feel it all depends on the path they choose to go, the whole supernatural angle, the earth told me to do this or that they seem to be heading to seems like a huge mistake and I can see season 2 completely tanking if they go for that, instead of focusing more on the survivor aspect.August 14, 2022 at 3:21 pm #1205045297
at least for my part isn’t hate but actually indifference because we had great and inspiring nominations/wins in the limited category on the last years so a show like Dopesick don’t inspire anything on me.
For me, it was the opposite, I feel like Dopesick gave a great portrait of the oxycodine epidemic, balancing all the aspects envolved very well, while The White Lotus was enjoyable, but forgetable, they tacled a lot of things without going as deep as they should on any of them.August 12, 2022 at 1:56 pm #1205043693
I agree it was a weak year, but got to say I don’t the get the Dopesick hate, it was good and deserving of every nomination it got and I would be fine with they winning series, actor and supporting actress.August 8, 2022 at 7:06 am #1205038391
I don’t get the whole Lynskey is being overstimated point.
This race has three actress from shows that bombed and probably don’t have enough support to win, which leaves Zendaya, Lynskey and Linney.
Linney already lost to Zendaya when she had a show that was top 2 on the race against one that wasn’t even nominated and the best performance by a long mile, now her show is 4-7, depending on who you ask, and Zendaya has the performance. The only new things she has going on for her this time is the last season narrative and the fact Pelphrey got nominated, which might suggest some people caught up with season 3 late.
Lynskey has things going on for her, since Yellowjackets overperformed with the industry and, if you wanna give critics some wheight, won Critics Choice and was the only one nominated for TCA. She also seems to have the veteran thing going on, the whole she is being around, we like her and it’s time to giver her something, which has helped some people in the past.
Also, there is no way to know who is stronger with the industry between Lynskey and Zendaya, since it’s the first time they face each other, and this whole 3 or 4 people liked her post or praised her on instagram and now she is everyone’s favourite is such a empty and meaningless argument.
The fact is Lynskey is the clear alternative if they don’t wanna give Zendaya a second, which they didn’t do with Davis, Moss, Comer and so many others in this category, so it’s natural that people who are banking on that theory go with her and that’s why she is second, and it’s where she should be.Not now
