Paltrow vs. JLD at the Globes this year? I’m excited!March 15, 2019 at 12:08 pm #1202817754
Jake Gyllenhaal.March 12, 2019 at 1:34 pm #1202814023
Just when I thought Felicity Huffman could get name-checked she goes and gets arrested.March 9, 2019 at 5:35 am #1202810069
I have Veep (winner), Mrs. Maisel, Barry, The Good Place, The Kominsky Method, GLOW, and Forever. I know Forever really, really underperformed but I’m still clinging to it getting into the Series race, though I think Writing and Lead Actress are much more probable options.
Russian Doll could surprise if it catches the zeitgeist somehow. Though once again, Writing and Lead Actress are likelier options.March 9, 2019 at 5:25 am #1202810053
Julia Louis-Dreyfus has never faced a stronger competitor and the industry has never responded to a comedy like they have to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Game of Thrones has scarcely had weaker competition. It is much more locked than Louis-Dreyfus. Peter Dinklage is more of a lock than she is.
JLD is coming off of beating cancer, getting the Mark Twain prize, with her show’s final season, and as HBO behind it. There is literally no way she loses to Brosnahan who would make a great repeat winner but she is not strong enough to beat the circumstances surrounding JLD.
Anyway back to OT: Game of Thrones is easily winning this. In my opinion, the losers will be The Crown, Killing Eve, Better Call Saul, Ozark, This Is Us, and Homecoming in that order. I think Bodyguard could easily replace Homecoming but Idk if Netflix can pull off a campaign to have three series here after their Roma spendings only for all three to lose obviously.March 2, 2019 at 7:45 am #1202801293
I don’t think she will have many opportunities maybe if Del Toro or AGI decides to do a Spanish language film they might help her but otherwise (unless she learns English really fast) I don’t see it happening.March 2, 2019 at 7:42 am #1202801291
“When They See Us” for limited (all for supporting at this stage — Farmiga, Huffman, Nash; Adepo, Jackson, Leguizamo, Underwood, Williams)
Either this is so bad (a la House of Cards season 5) and Netflix wants to dump it before people can watch it so it just gets a few namecheck nominations or Netflix just doesn’t want to wait until next year. Either way, its release date will make it less competitive in pretty much every category.March 1, 2019 at 4:44 pm #1202800781
Is there a chance she can win a Grammy for this too?March 1, 2019 at 4:28 pm #1202800774
if she is going to repeat at the Globes, Critic’s Choice, and SAG so soon after her wins for The Wife..
She is not going to repeat GGs considering this will be in Comedy/Musical categories. Who cares about Critic’s Choice? Their only job is to try and predict the Oscars and they have a lot of categories and they bring little to no acknowledgment to the eventual nominees. Her only problem will be repeating SAG but stranger things have happened.March 1, 2019 at 4:20 pm #1202800768
Honestly, I am so excited for this remake but the people behind the scenes don’t help it. Anyway, Close will definitely get her Oscar for this and nothing will make me happier. Norma is one of the best-written characters ever and there is practically no way they can f*ck it up.February 28, 2019 at 9:30 am #1202798937
Beyoncé Knowles and Tim Rice are also composing new original as well, some with Elton, although I think it might end up like Beauty and the Beast did in 2017
I think it won’t end up like that, this one has too many prestige names attached to it. B&tB just had Menken. But we shall see.February 28, 2019 at 3:40 am #1202798656
Could Elton John get two nominations in the Original Song category? From what I heard he made new songs for both The Lion King and Rocketman. We honestly need that kind of star power in the Original Song category for the Academy to stop meddling with it, I hope he can get at least two nominations.February 28, 2019 at 3:30 am #1202798654
Alfre Woodard’s Sundance Winner ‘Clemency’ Bought for U.S. by Neon: https://variety.com/2019/film/news/clemency-alfre-woodard-neon-1203151201/#article-comments
Well, this is out of contention unless Neon managed to upgrade their campaign game in the last few months.February 25, 2019 at 4:39 pm #1202794721
Gaga playing Amy Winehouse. That would do the trick.
I am a big fan of Gaga but imagining her doing Amy’s accent is giving me nightmares.
OT: I don’t think she will win for acting, this was her chance and it didn’t happen. She won her Oscar anyway so I’d be happy if she acted in more commercial movies. An Oscar campaign takes too much time (this took almost six months between Venice and the Oscars) and it takes too much from the people campaigning she is an Oscar winner so there is no need or urgency to repeat the same things over and over again. A cute little supporting role here and there would be great though.February 25, 2019 at 9:00 am #1202793779
1. Get back on television. Doesn’t have to be a long series commitment, but limited series could work. I think she could win another Emmy fairly easily, though the stage seems more like Close’s comfort zone. Go for another Tony win then!
She needs to get Ryan Murphy on the phone. His new series Hollywood (whatever it is about) could use her in any capacity.
2. Fast track the “Sunset Blvd” musical like today. Whatever lobbying/fundraising/hand-holding needs to be done, do whatever it takes! I genuinely think Close can win LEAD on her 8th nomination. Geraldine Page did, and she was on Close’s stature and talent level.
This needs to happen stat! Reese Witherspoon said to a tweet about Adams and Close’s snubs she was looking for a film to produce, her fans who were obsessive enough to e-mail/DM HFPA members needs to tweet her about this, it is a golden opportunity. She needs to get someone of Leo DiCaprio/Bradley Cooper’s caliber to play the William Holden role so the movie gets seen by people, and no Ryan Gosling or Jake Gyllenhaal cause they are BO and Awards poison. Or maybe put a twist and have Amy Adams play William Holden’s role that would be something.
