My second post in the Emmy Watch category. Here we’ve got the leading contenders for Actor and Actress in a Movie or Mini/Limited Series. BEST ACTOR: The Contenders: Riz Ahmed (The Night Of) John Tuturro (The Night Of) Robert DeNiro … Continue reading Emmy Predictions: Best Actor and Actress in a Movie/Mini
Kicking off my Emmy Award predictions, covering who has a shot, and who does not. Starting with Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie. SUPPORTING ACTOR: The Contenders: Stanley Tucci (Feud) Alfred Molina (Feud) Hank Azaria … Continue reading Emmy Predictions: Supporting Actor/Actress In A Mini/Movie
This is a rough category. So many great performances being swept to the wayside. I’m not sure that the smartest decision for The People VS OJ Simpson was to run both Gooding and Vance in the lead category. Vote splitting … Continue reading Emmy Watch: Best Actor In A Movie/Mini
It’s entirely possible that American Horror Story gets left out this time around. This category is really tough, and Emmy voters are likely to be swayed more toward prestige projects like Show Me A Hero and The Night Manager. I … Continue reading Emmy Watch: Limited Series
Surprisingly, no one from Roots is breaking through here. Pretty much everyone can agree that the top 4 ladies will all be nominated, with some mixture of the Wild Cards (or possibly a dark horse). I think for the actual … Continue reading Emmy Watch: Movie/Mini Actress
This is a stacked category. Basically, you have three front runners… Laurie, Mackie, and Root. Then, you can basically pick three more from the Wild Cards. If I had to guess, I’d bet on Travolta, Whitaker, and Molina, because of … Continue reading Emmy Watch: Movie/Mini Supporting Actor
The frontrunners here are Smart, King, and Leo. It’s a three way fight. The other nominees will be just lucky to get the nomination. Roots has so many names being passed around, I wonder if they will cancel each other … Continue reading Emmy Watch: Movie/Mini Supporting Actress
I’ve been working on a list that’s not really the 100 best films of all time, but a list that I believe is currently driving the most influential films of our time. These are the films that these guys grew … Continue reading So You Want To Be A Film Buff?
FX has ordered a second cycle of Fargo, which will feature a new cast, a new story, and a new time period. The time period part could be interesting. How far back in time (or forward?) will we go? Also, … Continue reading FX Renews ‘Fargo’, ‘Louie’
The easy frontrunner is Julia Roberts for playing a polio stricken doctor in the AIDS drama The Normal Heart. Also looking to be a lock is Kathy Bates for American Horror Story: Coven. She may not be the only American … Continue reading EMMY WATCH: Best Supporting Actress In a Mini/Movie
Matt Bomer is probably going to win the Emmy for his work in The Normal Heart. The bigger question is, will any of his castmates also get nominated? That includes Joe Mantello, Jim Parsons, Alfred Molina, and Taylor Kitsch. Martin … Continue reading EMMY WATCH: Best Supporting Actor in a Mini/Movie
Billy Bob Thornton is a must for Fargo, as a movie star dabbling in TV. He likely won’t win though, because another movie star… Mark Ruffalo turned in an equally impressive performance in The Normal Heart. Benedict Cumberbatch is also a … Continue reading EMMY WATCH: Best Actor In A Miniseries or Movie
As more and more networks produce “limited series”, or “anthology” series, this category is becoming more and more interesting. FX stands out in front with two guaranteed nominees, American Horror Story: Coven and Fargo. Luther is a strong contender, as is … Continue reading EMMY WATCH: Best Miniseries and Best Movie
PROGRAM OF THE YEAR: Breaking Bad Game Of Thrones The Good Wife Orange Is The New Black True Detective OUTSTANDING COMEDY: The Big Bang Theory Brooklyn Nine Nine Louie The Mindy Project Veep INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT IN COMEDY: Louie CK (Louie) … Continue reading Television Critics Award Nominees!
Billy Bob Thornton has been tapped to star in FX’s limited series, ‘Fargo’, based on the Oscar winning film by The Coen Brothers. He’s the first cast member signed, but this is a huge get for FX. Continue reading Billy Bob Thornton joins ‘Fargo’
