Now that Why Women Kill is officially an anthology series, I’m fully expecting a Lucy Liu nomination.October 16, 2019 at 6:06 am #1203139081
Actually, Kate McKinnon is the frontrunner cause it is an election year.October 15, 2019 at 4:29 pm #1203138385
Uh, excuse me Anderson was amazing in American Gods and that’s definitely one of the best nominees we have. I’m pretty sure they bumped her up to supporting for Hannibal anyways.
She was better in Hannibal and she was, in fact, in Guest category for Hannibal, I went back to check and she was my #2 after Metcalf for Horace and Pete.
On another note, I just realized Richard Armitage is also missing. A shame really.
Another thing I realized both Josh Charles and Archie Panjabi also missed. Guess you guys just didn’t watch The Good Wife.
Rita Moreno is another snub that hurts. Oscar Isaac, Jude Law, Mark Ruffalo, and Bryan Cranston all missing lead actor is hurtful as well.October 15, 2019 at 2:56 pm #1203138231
The recency bias is so obvious, especially in the Episode categories. I expect something like Fleabag to be the comedy winner, which (as great as it is) would be a shame. Olivia Colman getting in Supporting Actress comedy is a sick joke, especially over people like Sofia Vergara, Jane Krakowski (UKS), Megan Mullaly.
And I knew Eva Green was a pipe dream but how the hell Julianna Margulies missed it? Or Robin Wright, I mean you guys voted for pedophile Spacey, Ventimiglia should’ve gotten that nomination. Anna Camp missing for UKS is such a shame.
Gillian Anderson getting nominated for American Gods while being snubbed for her masterclass acting on Hannibal, I have no words. And that fricking Cherry Jones nomination, did you just wanted to troll?
Susan Sarandon should’ve gotten nominated for Feud, she was better than Lange.
I don’t understand how can you nominate McConaughey without Harrelson?
Patricia Clarkson, Eliza Scanlen, Olivia Colman, and Penelope Cruz getting nominated over so many deserving contenders is a shame.October 14, 2019 at 10:22 am #1203136176
I love how they flaunt their Emmy success! Hopefully, there is more to come.October 13, 2019 at 11:42 pm #1203135343
Both Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong deserve Emmys for that last scene in the season finale. I kinda hope HBO keeps Westworld to summer and Succession becomes their main push for next year, cause my God. Does this show deserve everything?
I think Armstrong has the Writing Emmy locked as early as now, the season finale amazing. And I guess Mark Mylod will be their main push for Directing since he directed both the season premiere and the season finale.October 13, 2019 at 7:42 am #1203134255
Cox and Strong in Lead Actor
Snook in Lead Actress
Braun, Culkin, and Macfadyen in Supporting Actor
Hunter in Supporting Actress
Cromwell in Guest Actor
Jones in Guest Actress
I’d normally root for Abbass too but she didn’t get much to do this season. They’d be more deserving than other HBO shows that got a boatload of acting nominations.
I’m especially rooting for Cox, Snook, and Hunter and I think the latter two won’t have a chance at all. But, oh well.October 10, 2019 at 7:32 pm #1203131454
It was incredibly successful in the UK though, enough to at least be on the HFPA’s radar given their propensity to nominate at least one British series in most years.
I loved Years and Years, and I’m rooting for it. However, they have Chernobyl to fill this quota.October 10, 2019 at 7:31 pm #1203131452
3rd episode was horrible, easily the worst of this season so far. They managed to ruin all storylines with great potentials by cramming all in one episode. We needed more of Stephanie Beatriz and how many times do we have to see the same storyline for Mitch/Cam/Lily, practically every season has an episode where they feel inferior to another gay couple or they feel bad about Lily’s lack of achievements.
I’m especially mad about that storyline because they could’ve introduced the new neighbors this episode and focus on the other two storylines and have this neighbor storyline last for at least the first half of the season, by occasionally bringing them back. And making them actually good friends with Mitch and Cam for a change.
I’m just too disappointed and I needed to vent, sorry.October 10, 2019 at 5:59 pm #1203131358
I know it is practically impossible since no CBS All Access show was ever nominated but I hope Lucy Liu and Why Women Kill could get nominated here.October 10, 2019 at 4:57 pm #1203131311
It is strategically stupid for them to have Witherspoon in Lead. Now she might cancel herself out and/or she might cancel Aniston out. I hope they just wanted to avoid the catch-all supporting categories at the Globes and once the Emmys roll they’ll submit Witherspoon in Supporting.October 10, 2019 at 4:48 pm #1203131295
I really wonder how Black Mirror will fare in Limited Series, they’ve been winning TV Movie for what, three years now? It will be really interesting to see if it can hold that popularity in a tougher category.October 10, 2019 at 12:06 pm #1203130994
And straight away I considered it a result of racist behavior from the TV academy – that WTSU was practically shut out while Chernobyl nearly swept, which in hindsight may or may not be fair. We’ll never truly know.
Chernobyl won because it was easily the superior series. It was a global and cultural phenomenon. And saying it is a result of racist behavior on TV Academy’s part is laughable at best. You just need to see the reaction towards Chernobyl’s win to understand there was no racial prejudice against WTSU, people barely clapped for Chernobyl’s series win. It shows that it won based on merit and thanks to below the line voters.October 10, 2019 at 12:00 pm #1203130988
Curiously I checked this year’s Oscar threads to see if they had the same reaction to another overdue narrative taking off. And as always, Goldderby didn’t fail to disappoint. I don’t think it’s necessary to point the difference in the treatment of Close and Oh. Everyone’s aware of it. One was stood on a pedestal and the other was torn down. One was met with pity on her loss, the other with cheers.
Overdue narratives are bullshit. Whether you are black, white, Asian, Indian, Native American. It doesn’t matter, you should only win based on your performance and not a bullshit narrative. Both Oh and Close won awards they didn’t deserve based on this narrative but in the end the awards that mattered went to people who deserved it based on their performances. I’m sorry there are people treating both these losses differently but both are occasions for celebrations because they are a sign that performances still do matter.
