I hope she does a TV series on HBO or another one (this time a “prestige” one) on Netflix.February 3, 2020 at 12:01 pm #1203328231
Only 1 film last year won 4 Oscars. Doubtful it happens twice this year.
And only two films last year had double-digit nominations yet here we are with 4 movies hogging a total of 41 nominations between them. It is not impossible for two movies to be the movies with most wins due to this shortened season.February 3, 2020 at 3:48 am #1203327415
I’m predicting both Parasite and 1917 to win 5 awards each.
Parasite for Best Picture, Original Screenplay, Editing, Production Design, and International Feature.
1917 for Director, Cinematography, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Visual Effects.
Joker is the only other movie I’m predicting to have multiple wins with Actor and Score, which actually doesn’t make sense since they were too focused on four movies overall but I can’t seem to find another place for OUATIH, maybe it wins Production Design over Parasite?February 3, 2020 at 3:45 am #1203327409
Any BP front-runner will be hated on; that’s what the internet does. It happens every single year, whether they actually like the front-runner or not.
Parasite is a frontrunner and there is barely any hate towards it. Therefore, your statement is not entirely true.February 2, 2020 at 7:07 am #1203325205
I’m over the moon that personification of trash and white mediocrity didn’t win adapted screenplay at WGAs. I’m still predicting her for the BAFTA and Oscar because of… well twitter and USC, but I’m hopeful the evil can be defeated once again. Go Taika!!!February 2, 2020 at 12:50 am #1203324957
I can’t believe Fosse / Verdon has this much industry love, so happy to see it!
Barry, really, was second at the Emmys, right? I’m so glad Fleabag became a phenomenon and we had one of the best winners ever at the Emmys, the Barry sweep would’ve been horrible. So, once again, thank you PWB!
I can’t wait until Succession is accepted by the acting branch. Once it breaks in there it will be incredibly competitive.January 28, 2020 at 6:05 am #1203316292
Speaking of Mulligan, she’s criminally underrated. How she only has ONE oscar nomination bothers me. She should have beaten Bullock in 2009. Should have been nominated for Shame. I still can’t forget how they snubbed her and Fassbender.
She was really great in Wildlife too.January 28, 2020 at 5:54 am #1203316284
Loving the possibility of Colman and Hopkins returning next year!January 27, 2020 at 12:36 am #1203313879
TIU is soapy too and ATAS loves it. House of Cards was even more soapy than The Morning Show and it got 9 nominations for its first season and it was around lower double digits for the following three seasons. Once you pretend it is “prestige” it doesn’t really matter how soapy the show is. And I’m sure Apple is not going to hesitate to spend more money campaigning for this show.
“What has happened is tragic. I am heartbroken for Kobe’s family. He was a sports hero. He was also a rapist. And all of these truths can exist simultaneously” Emmy award nominee Evan Rachel Wood about Kobe’s tragic death. She’s pretty much out now for the Emmys.
She’d got a defamation suit coming up her way once Vanessa Bryant gathers some strength. I agree she will be too controversial to nominate once it is all said and done.January 27, 2020 at 12:21 am #1203313861
And for the record, I’m not worried about it edging out Handmaid’s, because except for in actress, THT is probably still ahead of it.
but sofan said lower double-digits, which would mean not only acting.
And I stand by what I said. TIU’s first season got 11 nominations with barely anything but acting nominations.
I think TMS will eventually get most of the following:
Lead Actress (Aniston)
Lead Actress (Witherspoon)
Lead Actor (Carell)
Supporting Actress (Mbatha-Raw)
Supporting Actor (Crudup)
Supporting Actor (Duplass)
Guest Actor (Short)
Director (Mimi Leder)
Music Composition (Carter Burwell)
Editing (possibly season finale)January 25, 2020 at 9:54 pm #1203305134
The only significant SAG nod for TMS was Billy Crudup, because he’s been thoroughly under-rewarded in his career thus far. Steve Carell got a nod because they love him (he got a nom for freaking Battle of the Sexes) and Aniston won because she’s a powerhouse in that show. You can overperform at SAG but still perform poorly at the Emmys (GLOW says hi) – it happens. TMS isn’t Emmy fare. It’s popcorn entertainment that occasionally nails its social commentary, but that’s it. It didn’t deserve to be bashed by critics like it was, but it’s in no way Emmy material – IMO.
You are really afraid TMS will kick THT out of contention in many categories, aren’t you? It is funny, tbh. Will be even funnier to read your fumes when TMS overperforms, which I expect will get nominations around lower double-digits.
I feel like Shalhoub is easily winning again same with Kirby and possibly Borstein as well I haven’t seen the third season yet but what else is there besides Schitts Creek.
I think Eddie Murphy wins Guest Actor easily.
