Unlike Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Lead Actress seems all but locked and done. Or is it? Looking at the six nominees you can kind of break them up into three groups of two: Great chance, good chance and no chance. After Viola Davis’s historic win last year (she is the first woman of color to win this category), our ...Read More »
Lead Actor in a Drama Series is proving to be one of the more open categories this year. Despite Kevin Spacey (House of Cards) having three Emmy Experts list him at #1, the race feels far from over. House of Cards isn’t going to be a major winner this year but Spacey could benefit from being a multi-nominee that’s never ...Read More »
The winners of the Guest acting categories, as usual, will be handed out during the Creative Arts ceremony being held a week before the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards. And as is custom, the winners here are usually chosen as presenters for the main show. This year sees a huge number of returning winners as nominees, many for the very same ...Read More »
Well, the short answer is, yes. Or at least very likely. Jeff Bridges has built the second half of his career on gruff, rough types and digging deep into the South and Great Plains for some real meat and potatoes roles that have grabbed him Oscar nominations (2010’s True Grit) and a win (2009’s Crazy Heart). With Hell or High ...Read More »
Currently, Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent) looks safe to repeat his win from last year but he has two actors nipping at his heels (so to say) in the form of Anthony Anderson (black-ish, his second nomination in a row) and Aziz Ansari (Master of None, his first nomination in this category). Judging episodes alone it would see Anderson has the best ...Read More »
Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) is very likely to make it five wins this year, matching her with Candice Bergen’s stellar total in this category for Murphy Brown between 1989-1995 but besting her in that her wins would be consecutive. Her episode, “Mother,” about her response to her mother dying is as Emmy-baiting as you could possibly get in this category and although ...Read More »
2016 Emmys: Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series – Another Win for Allison Janney or is Niecy Nash Going to Upset?
Allison Janney (Mom) looks poised to win her third Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy this year, according to AwardsWatch’s Emmy Experts. This would be her seventh Emmy win, putting her within spitting distance of Cloris Leachman’s Emmy record of eight individual Primetime Emmys for performance and it would tie her with Ed Asner. Her submission is frighteningly low on screentime ...Read More »
2016 Emmys: Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series – Can Tony Hale Threepeat or is Louie Anderson a threat to win?
Is Tony Hale set for a three-peat in Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Veep? According to three of our Emmy Experts he is. This category is certainly no stranger to multiple consecutive wins so it’s certainly possible. His submission, “Inauguration,” is much like his last year’s win in that it builds up to a single big speech. ...Read More »
Predictions for the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations have become a much harder nut to crack recently. In 2012, SAG merged with AFTRA (The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists), which increased their number from about 100,000 to over 165,000. While the Screen Actors Guild is made up of, as the name implies, actors, AFTRA is comprised of primarily ...Read More »
The Animated Feature Oscar race is pretty competitive this year. While our #1 prediction, Moana, hasn’t even come out yet, what we’ve seen of it from the trailer and stills and that Emmy, Grammy and Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) is doing original songs for the film (hello, EGOT) is enough to sell us on it as the film to ...Read More »
