Do people not remember what happened to Jodie Comer in S01? Cardellini will get her due for the season 2, it just needs to be as good, if not better, as the season 1.December 12, 2019 at 6:20 am #1203233426
People were saying she was snubbed before Portman said it on air. All her comment did was demean five hard working and talented directors, and steal Del Toro’s spotlight.
Ohh boohoo five cis, heterosexual males had their feelings hurt. How will they live??
Women work twice as hard for half as much and no meaningful change is done without ruffling some feathers. Nothing about what Portman said was rude and the fact that two years later people still use her remark to drag HFPA shows that. Too bad HFPA is full of older so they don’t understand why they are getting dragged, so as great as Portman’s comment was no meaningful change will happen at the Globes until a younger generation of voters is accepted to the HFPA.
Gerwig would’ve been nominated anyway.
Also this is a stupid argument. People keep saying people are snubbed every year and it doesn’t help them at all.December 12, 2019 at 1:24 am #1203233178
but I still found Portman’s comment to be unprofessional, biased, and rude.
She did what had to be done. You can’t fight blatant sexism with “kind words” or “pretty please”s. She saw a moment and she seized it. Thanks to her Greta Gerwig got an Oscar nomination, Globe producers were so shook the next year (when they had 5 male nominees again) they had a male actor present the category alone.December 12, 2019 at 1:12 am #1203233170
He was practically a coattail nominee for SLP too (I think he only got a SAG nomination as a precursor) and the same will probably happen here. I don’t know why they keep snubbing him but I don’t think it will affect him as long as The Irishman has a strong showing at the Oscars.December 11, 2019 at 9:38 am #1203231676
If I didn’t have Tom Hanks with 1/100 odds I would replace him with Song Kang-ho in a heartbeat. If Hopkins misses BAFTA I’ll replace him I guess.
And can we get the rest of the Parasite women in Supporting Actress category, please? Downton Abbey has a bunch yet Parasite only has one.December 11, 2019 at 7:22 am #1203230864
So happy for all four of TMMM’s nominations, and Stranger Things hanging in with 3 nominations. Surprised none of the BLL women were individually nominated (I was predicting 3 of them so rip my predictions). Really sad Cardellini keeps missing but if Jodie Comer is teaching us anything there is always hope for first season snubs, she’s been getting nominated left and right without Oh.
Really surprised Moss and THT stayed though.
Also, I knew Andrew Scott was getting in. He is winning too.December 10, 2019 at 4:25 pm #1203229827
Green Book lacked snob appeal and critical consensus which Marriage Story doesn’t. Also quite a few directing Oscar nominees have missed both Globe and AACTA. Only a DGA snub will give me pause, but even then Baumbach might not be completely out of the running. Anyone dismissing his chances for a directing nom at this stage just doesn’t understand the specifics of this branch.
Oh come on. I think you are letting your personal bias get in the way of your predictions. 4/5 of the spots are locked with Martin Scorsese, QT, Sam Mendes, and Bong Joon Ho claiming them. It is pretty obvious, after the Globes backlash, they’ll go with a female director for the 5th spot, so possibly Gerwig gets nominated instead of Baumbach.December 10, 2019 at 4:17 pm #1203229821
Green Book was a reactionary winner to Netflix’s frontrunner status, it is not at all comparable to Marriage Story’s omission in Screenplay and Directing categories.December 10, 2019 at 12:49 pm #1203229514
They should give the creative team more freedom to do the shows they want to do and limit the influence of executives. Otherwise, established names will continue to avoid it like the plague. Especially at a time when Netflix is churning out new series every week.December 10, 2019 at 5:10 am #1203228637
I think the Comedy and Limited Series winners are so obvious but who wins the Drama categories. Right now, I’m predicting The Crown – Olivia Colman – Billy Porter but The Morning Show – Jennifer Aniston – Billy Porter combo also makes sense to me. Which one do you think is more likely to happen?December 9, 2019 at 6:12 am #1203226364
I wouldn’t say the season was bad, but it took a LONG time to become great. The last two episodes were absolutely anazing, though. Also, I think the Emmys dropping JLD had more to do with how amazing Fleabag (and Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s central performance) is.
JLD faced equally amazing, if not better, performances than PWB’s and still managed to win. This time it was due to a complete lack of quality material.
