Annie Murphy picked her best tape! Love to see that happening! She’s very much in the hunt to win the Emmy.
I don’t care about Catherine winning. I don’t care about Eugene winning. I don’t even care about Dan winning. But I want Annie to win. I just want her to win that damn thing. She’s the one character in this show who always makes me smile. Just by her presence alone.July 28, 2020 at 9:33 am #1203608190
Cecily Strong FINALLY gets her deserved nomination that she should have gotten before Jones, Bayer, or Bryant got theirs but better late than never.
Supporting Actress is such a great category for the second year in a row – Orji, Murphy, Strong, Gilpin, and Carden? I have to stan!
Also the Lynch snub is absurd but I think the Academy is kind of phasing Maisel out now. It also got only two Supporting Actors and one Guest Actor.
A show gets 7 acting nods and you think the Academy is phasing it out? Really? It still got more than any other comedy nominee.
The real WTF is What We Do in the Shadows with 3 writing nods! How did this happen?July 28, 2020 at 9:26 am #1203608111
Gotta be Succession. The Crown underperformed.July 28, 2020 at 9:16 am #1203607966
It’s the golden age of TV, but if one judges by these nominations, one would never come to this conclusion.
Voters are lazy. This never goes well with “let’s nominate everybody”. Voters were bound to nominate people because they did last year and the year before that (Sandra, Jodie)…
Voters don’t watch that much TV… even when they’re locked in their homes.
Exposure wins over quality (something that used not to apply to the Emmys as much as the Oscars)…
Apple is embraced right away… because it’s Apple…
These nominations are a hot mess… A few nice surprises here and there, a few wonderful WTF nominees, but mostly the usual dullness one expects of Hollywood awards. With some HFPA touches here and there that are more embarrassing than entertaining.July 28, 2020 at 9:08 am #1203607823
These folks at the Academy take a look at a TV movie, they see the name Dolly Parton, and they’re sold. Check. Done. Nominated. But this is nothing compared to that American Son nod. How is this nominated for anything?July 28, 2020 at 9:04 am #1203607763
And we all thought voters had the time to watch some TV. Either they did but they have a horrible taste or they spent the lockdown fucking.July 28, 2020 at 8:53 am #1203607586
Hollywood has 12 Emmy nods. If this is what Emmy nods are for, what are the TV Razzies expected to honor?July 28, 2020 at 8:47 am #1203607485
My short and sweet commentary:
Half the nominees were boring and so 2019, even 2019.
The other half were WTF picks.
The presentation was ridiculous. (The Handmaid’s Tale casting directors, please contact Leslie. She’s ready.)July 28, 2020 at 7:38 am #1203607146
Could Watchmen end up overtaking GoT8’s single season record?
It’s also on the ballot for Music & Lyrics; Visual Effects; 2nd submission in Sup. Actress; 2nd in Prosthetic Makeup & a 4th in Cinematography. The first three of which do seem in grasp lengths.
Isn’t Roots with its 37 nods the record holder?July 28, 2020 at 2:43 am #1203606834
I’m actually predicting Mindhunter for Drama Series. I believe this might be the show to benefit from the lockdown. It’s a terrific show and it only needed to be given a chance.July 26, 2020 at 9:37 am #1203603733
1. Jane Campion – The Piano

Don’t get so upset, you said the same thing to me.
You’re grasping at straws with your attempts to say it’ll be disqualified. This is a brand new, and non developed rule that won’t get in the film’s way. It’s been released in this cycle, and I’m sure they’ll put in theaters as long as they open before the ceremony.
Obviously this conversation is just going to keep running around in circles, so let’s just drop it.
Nope, I expressed an opinion. You told me what I CLEARLY wanted. You know for sure. Yeah, let’s drop it.July 4, 2020 at 11:37 am #1203566621
They have a right to push it if they want. You clearly don’t want it at the Oscars, but filmed stage performances have competed and won at the Emmys, and in a much more limited capacity at the Oscars.
If they want to push it, they have the right to.
The Emmys are very different from the Oscars. They’re also far more desperate.
Of course, they have the right to push it. I’m certain that it would be disqualified and entered into the Emmys next year.
But one thing: You can’t know what I want. Your deductions are based on nothing. So please avoid telling me what I CLEARLY want.Thanks.
