The fact that she’s in a film that’s getting trashed is one thing. The fact that she dons brown face in it makes a Razzie nomination look very likely. I still don’t understand why people think she’ll be nominated for Laundromat. There’s already the trashing and brown face that I mentioned above, but there’s also the fact the film has zero studio pushing (pretty much a death sentence for any hope at nominations) and she has Little Women coming out, which could be a pretty big contender. It doesn’t matter if her role is way smaller. If Streep’s getting nominated (I don’t think she will) then it’s obviously for Little Women.
Nope, haters. She won’t get a Razzie nomination for a performance that no matter what, isn’t badly received. Most critics actually singled out her work as the sole good thing in that film, so nope. Hate on.October 1, 2019 at 1:22 am #1203115324
People… she has an actual arc compared to the 1994 film as well as a huge monologue. Streep has a couple of quips and that’s it (there’s no way she gets nominated).
The only thing I read about Little Women somewhere was that people who’ve seen it declared Streep and Pugh the MVPs.September 28, 2019 at 3:36 am #1203109811
Yes, and she’s just as great as Arquette. Lange really delivered in the second episode. What an actress!
Do you think so? Well, Jessica has never been a subtle actor, but she has gotten so broad in her characterisation lately. It’s as if she plays the same thing over and over and over and over again. It’s getting ridiculous.September 23, 2019 at 10:59 am #1203098209
Actually GoT could very well (and is even likely to) become the first TV drama with 4 Emmy wins in the top category that does not win at least one top drama Globe. The other four have at least one top Globe each.
And JLD looks like if she’s losing the Globe. They obviously don’t care much about her performance and given the reception of the show’s last season, she’s very unlikely. And of course, Phoebe will be nominated there.September 23, 2019 at 10:44 am #1203098180
A big NO.
This is the award voted by the industry. You have the People Choice. We don’t need another award voted by the public.September 23, 2019 at 7:48 am #1203097784
Let’s ignore the winners for a while and discuss the show. There’s not so much to discuss, as NBC’s design from last year was kept nearly intact. And maybe you disagree, but I find it awful. It all looked as if they arranged it all in a single afternoon. They didn’t even show the split screen when winners were announced. This takes away the suspense in so many categories. I wanted to see actors’ faces, I wanted to see JLD’s reaction to losing. It might have been hilarious. Is it that hard to make it work? They could have made it work on that huge screen on stage (which, ironically, is the only sets they had).
Sorry, Emmys, but your whole show looks like a cheap PowerPoint presentation.September 23, 2019 at 2:27 am #1203097316
They gave drama to GoT but it was mainoy due to the lack of an obvious alternative. The show had a very weak night with two wins only, just like last year. It has not won directing or writing in years. And none of the other acting nods turned into a in. It wasn’t the huge love fest some had expected.September 22, 2019 at 6:34 pm #1203095048
Let’s see whether my 2 for Patty prediction pays off. Probably not.September 22, 2019 at 5:48 pm #1203094265
I’m so sad Rachel lost. I adore her and her performance during her submission episode was heartbreaking. But well, call me a hater but I love that they FINALLY moved on in this category.September 22, 2019 at 5:22 pm #1203093822
Maisel already has the same number of Emmys it won last year (8), which is the record for comedies, so it can beat its record. Well deserved.September 22, 2019 at 5:17 pm #1203093749
No split screen again?!?!?! I want to see all nominees before the winner is announced. Is it that hard?!??!?September 22, 2019 at 3:50 pm #1203093314
“Given that we’ve endured JLD winning 6 consecutive times, he should also have won for every single season. The fact that Lewis won over him once, lol.”
Sorry, but Damian Lewis deserved to win in 2012 based on his submission. Damian was also more deserving of a win than Claire Danes in 2013.
I’m not so sure. Cranston had a killer submission in 2012.September 20, 2019 at 2:32 pm #1203089485
Prior to 2015, voters got tapes containing a single episode by every acting nominee (and with six episodes – in three couples for series). Voters based their choice on the episodes alone and it was evident from their choices over the years. Some people argued that this old system helped actors with good single episodes but prevented actors with great overall seasons but no standout episodes from winning. But in my opinion, it was a great system and it worked wonders in terms of helping actors from lesser known shows winning. Bryan Cranston’s first Emmy wouldn’t have happened – ever! – without the old system. And Dinklage wouldn’t have won the last two times under the old system. One more thing: Under the old system, actors voted in a limited number of categories (don’t remember the exact number). So a category was decided by a “panel” of let’s say 100 to 200 people (the number needs to be checked).
Under the new system (since 2015), every actor can vote in every acting category and it’s obvious that nobody is watching the tapes. People vote based on buzz, momentum… many winners just feel random. This is a very brief overview.September 20, 2019 at 12:58 am #1203088169
More like, another reason they shouldn’t be on Sunday night. NBC has no problem airing them on Mondays.
EDIT: Apparently, unless you can get the Los Angeles Fox station, if you live in the Pacific time zone, there will not be the usual repeat of the ceremony at 8:00 Pacific. As of Thursday morning, Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and San Diego all have other shows listed in their TV listings; Las Vegas is TBA.
My best guess is, there have been one too many instances of people tuning in at 8, catching the end of the live ceremony, and saying to themselves, “Why bother watching the rest?” (My second-best guess is, the stations depend too much on their 10 PM news being an hour earlier than everybody else’s 11 PM news – this is a big thing out west, where a lot of people have to get to work in time for the 6:30 AM opening of the stock market.)
Wait, I’ve never seen the Emmys on FOX. But this will affect the pre-show, not the actual show, right?
