Sweetie, she won 2 Emmys for 2 miniseries that swept, including miniseries.
She has a third one for narrating.
Streep is not winning a BLL Emmy. Classy Bonham Carter is winning it and it won’t even be close.
We don’t even know how The Crown completely changing its actors will be received. They’ll be compared to the former actors and I doubt either Colman or HBC gives a better performance than Foy or Kirby respectively. At least for the first season they are more likely to go empty-handed than they are to win over BLL women.August 20, 2019 at 8:40 am #1203031535
I think most of you are underestimating this movie’s award chances. It will be a huge player in SAG and BAFTA will eat it up. And that much precursor support will eventually turn into Oscar nominations.August 20, 2019 at 4:33 am #1203031265
#1203030873 Why do people think Meryl can’t lose lol? She loses awards all the time, and this will be no different.
This is not the Oscars, Globes, or SAGs. She only lost once when it comes to Emmys and that was to Alfre Woodard’s legendary performance in Miss Evers’ Boys, where Meryl also was the lone nominee from her movie. Big Little Lies will be big, so she won’t have a visibility problem, and as of now, there is no undeniable alternative.August 20, 2019 at 4:27 am #1203031261
I don’t know about the rest but even TVLine wrote a news article about Lange’s interviewAugust 19, 2019 at 3:17 pm #1203030628
I might be alone here but I’m really thinking Maisel will take Best Comedy over Fleabag.
I am extremely biased b/c it is one of my favorite shows but I’m also predicting Mrs. Maisel to win series.
Their Maisel Day event was extremely successful with Emmy voters and their audience demographic is more Emmy Voter friendly.
This is so nice to hear. Hopefully, it works.August 17, 2019 at 5:42 am #1203027659
I think I might end up predicting Olivia Colman. Sian Clifford deserves it more but Olivia is just a way bigger name and The Crown promotion starting now can only help her.
Being the bigger doesn’t matter when the voters watch the show. I mean look at People vs. O.J. actors, the bigger names lost in both lead and supporting categories to better performances. Who would rank Sterling K. Brown above boh David Schwimmer and John Travolta based on name recognition alone? Or Vance over Gooding Jr?
It is clear they watched Fleabag so based on season 2 material they got Clifford is probably higher than Colman.August 17, 2019 at 3:30 am #1203027564
Alfie Allen and Stephen Root both interviewed on KTLA today. Both asked which show they recently binged. Any guess which one was the first one they both answered as binging and loving? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3J1Ps4Rm710 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyouq3Rkuh4
This is nice and all but I highly doubt HBO would let them vote for Fleabag.August 16, 2019 at 3:08 pm #1203026922
There is no limit. It only matters insofar as voters recognizing that there are only going to be a certain number of nominees, so voting for too many more would nullify their ballot, plus some voters are going to be averse to checking off the same show repeatedly.
First of all, thank you for that information I needed to know that to be sure. And you are making a complete opposite of the argument you are making for Mrs. Maisel missing a Writing nomination here. We can sit here and try to find a lot of reasons why a show might have missed out on a nomination but in the end, it missed out on that nomination and that shows a lack of support.
I really feel like you are underestimating how the last-day-of-eligibility release of When They See Us could have affected its visibility and the lack of votes that would have resulted from that. Chernobyl is absolutely ahead statistically, but so was fellow cultural phenomenon Stranger Things to politically-topical The Handmaid’s Tale, which also just barely qualified for eligibility.
Technically, Deadwood: The Movie was released later than When They See Us and it managed to get an Editing nomination. And during its TV Series run it wasn’t a favorite amongst the editors, with its sole nomination in three seasons. And let’s not forget Chernobyl itself barely qualified for eligibility.August 16, 2019 at 10:53 am #1203026588
I love Amy Adams with all my heart and I’m still not over her Arrival snub at the Oscars but thinking she could win over White Michelle’s legendary performance is pure lunacy. HBO fucked her over by keeping Sharp Objects for another year.
