Another surprise out of animation: Bojack Horseman submitted the same episode in both Animated Program and Comedy Series Writing. The writers are allowed to do that, if they withdraw their names from the Animated Program entry (and, as a result, don’t get Emmys if the show wins in that category).June 10, 2019 at 3:44 pm #1202931908
One thing that surprised me: Bleeding Fingers Music (Hans Zimmer, Steve Kofsky, Russell Emanuel) did not submit anything from The Simpsons for either Music Composition, Music Direction, or Music Supervision.June 9, 2019 at 10:03 am #1202929426
Are the Emmy ballots going to be visible for everyone to see this year? If so, when will they be available to view?
Remember that some categories don’t have online ballots, including:
* Voiceover (both character & narrator)
* Choreography (and remember there are two categories this year – scripted progams, and variety/reality, although the scripted category appears to be a juried award with no actual nominations)
* Music & Lyrics (i.e. Original Song – and if I am reading the rules right, the other music categories do have online ballots this year)
* Individual Achievement in Animation
* Innovation in Interactive Media
* Motion Design
* Exceptional Merit in Documentary FilmmakingApril 17, 2019 at 5:50 pm #1202857193
There will be no nationwide NFL coverage on Fox immediately before the Emmys. Presumably, this means there will be a “red carpet special” on Fox starting at 7 Eastern, although a number of cities, including New York, Charlotte, Tampa Bay, and Phoenix, will probably have any special be joined in progress as their Fox stations would be airing an NFL game starting at 4:05 Eastern that day.March 2, 2019 at 12:46 pm #1202801440
This reminds me of back in the 80’s and 90’s when they had the Cable Ace awards because cable shows weren’t being given a fair shot at the Emmy’s at broadcast was dominating. Maybe a separate award similar in that vein, like the Broadcast & Basic Cable Awards. IDK what the answer is.
For a minute, I thought I was the only one here who remembered the Cable ACE awards – and if there is an answer, a separate organization giving out awards limited to broadcast TV (you can’t really include basic cable, as I think the problem would remain, unless you’re going to limit it to the “popular” categories) is probably it.February 27, 2019 at 1:09 pm #1202797688
Er, I think you misunderstand the rule – it’s not necessarily “the top eight.” What happens is, they take all of the films that are ranked #1 on the Best Picture nominating ballots of at least 5% of the voting members; if it’s between 5 and 10, those are the nominees. (If it is fewer than 5, those are nominated, and then they go through the preferential process with the remaining films until there are 5 nominees; if it is more than 10, they go through the preferential process using just those films to choose 10 nominees.)February 25, 2019 at 1:04 pm #1202794306
Something I learned (based in part on the 2018 Academy Awards): apparently, actress Hiep Thi Le (who was mentioned in last year’s In Memoriam) is considered more noteworthy than Carol Channing (who wasn’t mentioned in this year’s).February 25, 2019 at 1:02 pm #1202794300
Lol Angela Lansbury doesn’t have an Oscar. And she doesn’t have an Emmy either despite getting nominated 18 times there.
Richard Burton didn’t win any, either.
That was my point – I was alternating people who eventually won with people who never won. When you say, “that person will never win,” sometimes you’re right, and sometimes you’re wrong.February 25, 2019 at 12:05 pm #1202794207
Glenn Close will never win! That’s what we learned.
I’ve heard this before:
Steven Spielberg will never win.
Richard Burton will never win.
Paul Newman will never win.
Angela Lansbury will never win (applies to Emmys as well).
Martin Scorcese will never win.
With the Oscars, you just never know.February 25, 2019 at 7:52 am #1202793592
In a way, the Oscars did have a host last night – Randy Thomas.
You mean, who’s she?. She was the Oscar voiceover announcer. Somebody might come up with the idea of submitting her for the Narrator Voiceover Emmy this year.February 25, 2019 at 5:39 am #1202793317
Two comments about the ceremony itself:
First, apparently, “someone who needs no introduction” literally applies to Lady Gaga; she wasn’t introduced when she sang.
Second, when Julia Roberts said the goodbye at the end, was I the only one expecting Whoopi Goldberg to show up and comment along the lines of, “Sorry I’m late – traffic was a mess”?February 21, 2019 at 11:41 am #1202783989
I reacted pretty much the same way Dre did when Junior said he’s thinking about not going to college. Would it be that hard to have a few episodes where one of the storylines takes place at Howard?
