RIP Haunting of Hill House. It was fun to dream, while it lasted. There’s still a little hope cuz it’s most probably going Limited at the Emmys, but it’s obvious to me that Netflix didn’t think much of campaigning for this until it was too late. I’m officially renouncing my Netflix stan position…fuck them 🙁 . They can go home empty handed at every awards show and I’ll laugh.
Also, random but Alison Brie has now hit GG + SAG for the second year in a row, if she misses Emmy again will she be the 1st?

Saw this today, I thought it was very good and I enjoyed it. I’m indifferent to Viola in general but she was good here. I don’t think she should be nominated but I wouldn’t mind either. I’ll predict her anyway.
I was curious to see why Kaluuya and Debicki were getting praise and I thought they were both amazing. However, in Kaluuya’s case, it doesn’t warrant anything other than a “Good job, good effort” pat on the back. Some early reviews tried to prop him up as a potential nominee but that’s simply because he just got one last year, and hey, that might just work out. But I wouldn’t put money on it. As for Debicki, her character was the only one outside of Davis’ who actually had an arc so good for her for actually making it count.
Then there’s Michelle Rodriguez, bless her; that breakdown scene was cringe. Rolling Stone just had an article hyping Cynthia Erivo’s “scene-stealing” performance, she must be a real good thief cuz I didn’t see it. And yeah, Kaluuya does disappear for a bit and when he pops back up I was like, “oh yeah, this dude”.
There was a post earlier hyping the score (Hans Zimmer), but it was non-existent for me.
Something happened at my theatre that I’ve basically never seen before; 3 different people walked out halfway through. I’ve literally never even seen one person walk out. Was this movie really “mis-advertised”? Did people really think this was an all-female heist movie and decided they’ve already seen Ocean’s 8 and that’s it for the year? That’s kinda sucky.
I really don’t think its BO performance will affect its awards chances, but everyone involved was looking for this to be a commercial success so we can’t just shrug and say NBD. There’s gonna be some fallout from this.
This could very well win SAG Ensemble.
Also, hello there, Elizabeth

I’m torn on Haunting as Drama…On the one hand, it’s my pick for SAG ensemble (and iMO not even close), which is nice but I also don’t think Versace is a world beater in Limited Series like People vs OJ or BLL. THOHH is the right kinda show to come and knock it off its perch in Limited at the Globes, It’s hard to say the same for Drama.
Then again, even though we know they like Amazon I could see just Julia Roberts being the only win there, the show doesn’t have to go along with her. THOHH could still take it with Gugino being the acting win in Supporting. I feel Netflix is going to submit it in Limited for the remaining Guild/non-televised awards and eventually the Emmys.

You think BLL will have 4 Supp Actress noms in Drama?

Sam Elliott held back tears in one scene and I guess that’s enough for an oscar nom? FOH with that shit. People who didn’t already know him didn’t think twice about the dude who played Jackson’s brother. I’ll say it again, he has no business in the top 5 and it’s not about screen time.

I’ve been re-watching and I just finished episode 6. I swear I’m done with Netflix if they screw up this show’s awards chances. This shit should be sweeping the Limited Series categories.

There is still so much missing from the predictions center, and why is Billy Porter in the lead category there ?
The Haunting on Hill House, Succession, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are all missing.
Chris Beachum said earlier in the thread that they haven’t gotten any word yet from Netflix.

Finally saw ASIB yesterday. I don’t understand how Sam Elliott is in the running for anything. Not only was he barely there, he didn’t stand out whatsoever.
If you think he gets in as a vet, then ok but other than that, he has no business in the top 5.

Pretty sure she is in Supp. Actress

Netflix has not confirmed to us yet if they are even submitting HOHH for Globes or SAG. That’s why it is not in the predictions center. They also need to tell us if it’s drama or limited series, and they did not know that answer earlier this week.
Not surprised Netflix is slow on this one. They wouldn’t have expected it to blow up like it did and we’re already at the end of October; they wouldn’t have anticipated having to campaign for this whatsoever. I think it goes Limited as the creator says the main family story is done, for sure.

Wait till you watch episode 6, then. That was the highlight of the season, for me anyway.

Must be weird for Margulies after 2 consecutive long running shows.

Finally, Netflix should just think and see what went wrong, when Hulu and Amazon are able to win program Emmys. Let’s see what wins in 2020, a year after Game of Thrones sweeps everything. (The Crown should play its cards right).
Netflix’s problem is pretty obvious; too many shows and not enough broad support to go around. Hulu, with THT (last year anyway) and Amazon with Maisel have the one show to focus their campaign on. Netflix has a million. I mean, GLOW gets 10 nominations but no Brie and no Maron, that’s problematic and they have no one to blame but themselves. I’m a Netflix fan but I’m not even mad that Hulu, and now Amazon have beat them to series wins.
