Hahaha, I work as a Cinematographer and Film Cirtic, so I have some contacts.
I still like The Bells more, but I guess the hate on the episode will hurt it.
Cool. Well, The Long Night feels like the most buzzed and talked about episode with the 55-nights long filming period etc. And it’s not as devisive as The Bells I feel. Idk, yet I still think he’s vulnerable even if GoT doesn’t get a 2nd nom, we don’t know how TV academy will react to this season.May 25, 2019 at 3:27 am #1202909808May 25, 2019 at 3:26 am #1202909806
I managed to contact Miguel Sapochnik’s manager and he confirmed he will be submitting The Long Night for Directing (GOT).
What’s up with all these people popping up out of nowhere having contacts in the industry. Anyways, that’s great. Wise choice imo. I have a feeling they might go for “The Long Night” in writing as well since the finale won’t do them any favors.May 25, 2019 at 2:18 am #1202909788
^Indeed, he’s a 3-time Oscar nominee, arguably overdue. I’ve never considered him an amazing actor that shouldn’t be left Oscar-less but the narrative is there and this movie will most likely be a huge hit and crowdspleaser so he’s a major threat. DiCaprio isn’t winning, but on the trailer alone he’s baity af and a lock for a nom. Robbie I think it’s not clear yet but given how unclear Supporting Actress is rn I guess she’s fairly a safe bet too. I wonder if Al Pacino is a threat for a nom? He does have The Irishman coming out this year though, maybe he splits votes and ends up unnominated? Maybe he get nommed for the latter?May 24, 2019 at 8:27 pm #1202909685
“Everything serves to highlight Zellweger’s gloriously goofy performance. As Anne Montgomery, the actress doesn’t so much chew the scenery as absorb it through every pore. Much like Madeline Stowe in Revenge, Zellweger commands the screen with regal condescension, delivering every line in a breathy, high-pitched murmur — it’s baby talk, weaponized. Whatever drove her to say yes to this bizarre venture (beyond, you know, money), I’m tremendously glad that she did.” – Entertainment Weekly
“A titan who takes glee in destroying the lives of those unlucky enough to cross her path is not a natural casting for Zellweger, whose recent absence from the screen has deprived audiences of a preternaturally charming performer. From “Chicago” and the “Bridget Jones” films to “Jerry Maguire,” Zellweger’s great gift is depicting the process of overcoming insecurities, which makes her an awkward fit for a character who appears to have been born without any. Further, her status as a beloved star returning to work would seem to present opportunities to work on shows with loftier aims; for all the noise “What/If” makes about investigating the consequences of decisions, its appeal lies in watching Zellweger fetching a massive golden keychain from a glass vault while ordering a subordinate to get her car ready for a drive. (Let the debate over what is or is not camp end here: Renée Zellweger spitting “Bring the car around” is camp.) Her line readings always land a bit to the left of where an actress more suited to playing the boss might place them — and that makes her endlessly watchable.
Zellweger so consumes her moments on screen — fueled, not stymied, by having been a bit miscast — that she overwhelms her scene partners and the show’s other storylines.” – Variety
Renée Zellweger coming for a Emmy nod?
Having seen 4 dreadful episodes, she actually isn’t bad but delicious in this role. She feels like a great cast tbh. I doubt an Emmy nom is happening, but I suspect the Globes won’t resist her. Thing is so far she’s actually supporting, part of an ensemble, credited with “and” in the starring cast credits (not that it really matters).May 24, 2019 at 6:31 am #1202906764
Watched episodes 2 and 3 too. I am struggling. It’s an ensemble show and Zellweger is the most supporting of them all.May 24, 2019 at 3:04 am #1202906678
Watched the first episode and didn’t like it. It’s sooo ABC, so cheesy and bad-acted. Even Renee couldn’t save this. Maybe it gets better, idk. Or maybe it’s just not for me.May 23, 2019 at 1:46 pm #1202906126
Sorry but not happening.May 23, 2019 at 1:39 pm #1202906123
I only now am realising and digesting after talking with more and more people that this season and that finale actually happened. I’d be embarrassed if I was one of the writers. You don’t have to wait for a response from people to see how atrocious these scripts have been. Every “shocked” cast member was most likely shocked because of how bad the show was gonna get wrapped up rather than the actual ending. Every episode is literally filled allover with errors. It’s unsatisfying af and no, not because my favorite character Daenerys died; I almost equally love Arya too but that doesn’t blind me from seeing how nonsense her deus ex machina jump in episode 3 was. I think the only people that liked this season were people who always maintained apathy towards this show and never really cared for it anyways. It’s not that the people behind the show disrespected the fandom, they don’t give a single shit deep down, all they want is the cash; they disrespected themselves and the work and piece of art they have spent so many years creating. It’s just sad. The show also dropped ratings-wise on imdb, which is only natural, I also changed my rating from 10 to 9. Anyway, thanks for attending my rant, it’s just a show, we move on, I just wanted to make a last post concerning the quality of this season.
Emilia Clarke is the only one who has responded with class on the reactions coming in.May 23, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1202906120
OUTSTANDING WRITING FOR A DRAMA SERIES: The Handmaid’s Tale: Bruce Miller & Kira Snyder, “Holly” OUTSTANDING DIRECTING FOR A DRAMA SERIES: The Handmaid’s Tale: Daina Reid, “Holly” Talent, make it into the field again!
I honestly won’t mind at all THT taking writing and saving the TV academy from an embarrassing moment in case they reward GoT. Although I think if indeed Succession or/and Bodyguard are nominated it’s gonna be one of those 2 that wins.
