My 2014 Emmy Nomination Wish List

May 17, 2014

Hey everyone,
What's In The Box?I’m baaaaack… Sorry for the delay between posts, but luckily I have been quite busy. I shot an episode of Grey’s Anatomy opposite the lovely Sandra Oh (more on her later), booked a new webseries to shoot in June, and Co-Produced my first feature film Like You Mean It. It’s been a wonderful time, but I have missed ya’ll.

So, I’m back with another blog on entertainment awards because I’m a little obsessed. TV’s big night, The Emmy Awards, will happen in late August with nominations due in early July. With that said, I am hereby recommend the following people on my Emmy Nomination Wish List… Now don’t fret, I still love a ton of people and shows that will probably grab nominations like Downton Abbey, Maggie Smith, Sofia Vergara and Clare Danes. However, I wanted to shine a light on some serious long shots along with my personal favorites and a few surprises.

I’m Back with My Big Bold 2013 Emmy Award Winner Predictions!

September 19, 2013

Hi readers,
So sorry for the long dry spell between posts, but as most of you know I’ve been very busy with my acting/producing career for the past few months… Since my last post, I shot the films The Pinhole Affect and 420 along with more episodes of the webseries Sammy Kingsford: Manager to the Stars and the series The Adventures of Velvet Prozak. Also,the film I co-produced and co-starred in, Dirty Talk, has now played over 35 festivals across the globe winning 7 awards along the way, and you can catch me in the films Hot Guys with Guns and The Boogeyman on the festival circuit now. Ok, enough about me.
Let’s get to what you really want to see~ my big bold 2013 Emmy Award winner predictions. This year we could actually see some 1683535-inline-i-3-anna-gunn-reflects-on-what-it-was-like-to-play-walter-whites-wife-on-breaking-badexciting shakeups in the winners. Can The Big Bang Theory unseat Modern Family? Will Breaking Bad finally win Drama Series on its 5th try? Can anything ever beat The Amazing Race? Well, with the surprise wins at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmy Ceremony, I think we could be in for a fun night of shockers. Last weekend Carrie Preston (The Good Wife) and Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal) both shocked with their Guest Actor Drama wins while Tim Gunn helped Heidi Klum (Project Runway) snatch the Reality Competition Host prize for the first time. I was thrilled with those wins. On the Comedy side, Melissa Leo (Louie) and Bob Newhart (The Big Bang Theory) beat out a quartet of Saturday Night Live hosts to win Guest Actor and Actress and those wins could foreshadow big things for their respective series on Sunday…. With that said, take a look at my predictions below and watch the Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday night on CBS.

It’s Time for my Big Bold 2013 SAG Award Winner Predictions

January 25, 2013

jennifer_lawrence_silver_linings_playbook_a_lThis weekend, awards season keeps trucking along with PGA Awards and the SAG Awards. I, of course, am incredibly excited for the SAG Awards since I actually get to vote for them as a proud member of the Screen Actors Guild for over 10 years now. It’s always a fun show and one where actors support and applaud one another, and yes, actors love to do that… Anywho, the show airs on Sunday on TBS and could feature some big upsets in the film categories and the TV races are pretty wide open. So, just who do I think will and should win? Take a look at my predictions below. Then, head back here on Sunday night for all the winners from the 2013 SAG Awards. (* And also note four films sent actual dvds to the ENTIRE giant SAG/AFTRA membership guild which certainly improves their chances. Those films were Argo, Les Miserables, Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook. The latter of those films has been pushing, advertising and knocking the industry over the head like crazy begging for awards too, so it might actually pay off…)

2013 SAG Award Winner Predictions~

Best Actress:
Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Marion Cotillard (Rust & Bone), Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), Helen Mirren (Hithcock), Naomi Watts (The Impossible)
Will win: Jennifer Lawrence
Should win: Jessica Chastain
~spoiler: Naomi Watts (seriously Chastain and Lawrence could spilt the vote in this very tight race leaving room for a win for the very deserving Watts)

Best Supporting Actor:
Alan Arkin (Argo), Javier Bardem (Skyfall), Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln), Phillip Seymour Hoffman (The Master), Robert DeNiro (Silver Linings Playbook)

“Lincoln” Leads the Golden Globe Nominees

December 13, 2012

lincolnThe Hollywood Foreign Press has spoken and they love them some Lincoln. Steven Spielberg‘s historical drama outpaced the competition this morning pulling in a field best 7 Golden Globe nominations including Picture, Director, Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Supporting Actor (Tommy Lee Jones), Supporting Actress (Sally Field), Score and Screenplay. Coming in a surprisingly strong second was Django Unchained with 5 nods including two in Supporting Actor (Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz) that really shakes up that race. Also grabbing 5 nods was Argo while Les Miserables, Life of Pi and Silver Linings Playbook all pulled down 4 nominations. The biggest surprise in the acting categories was the inclusion of Nicole Kidman in the Supporting race for the hot mess of a movie The Paperboy. After getting a nom from SAG yesterday, could Kidman be a true Oscar nominee spoiler over snubbed ladies like Samantha Barks, Maggie Smith, Ann Dowd, and Kelly Reilly? We’ll see… Also of note, the small February comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen shocked with 3 bids in the Musical/Comedy Category…. Big snubs included Keira Knightley (I think her Oscar hopes are done now), Beasts of the Southern Wild, Ted, Barbra Streisand, Anthony Hopkins, Eddie Redmayne, Robert DeNiro, and Emmanuelle Riva. So, who did make it? Take a look at the movie nominees below.
