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. Take a look below and then let me know who you’d love to see grab an Emmy nomination this year.

Today’s Oscar Contender: Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole

October 22, 2010

The Best Actress race just got a little tougher. With several contenders already solidifying their place in the race like Annette Bening (The Kids are Alright), Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), Hilary Swank (Conviction), Diane Lane (Secretariat) and Julianne Moore (The Kids are Alright), they all better brace themselves for the power of Kidman. Nicole Kidman that is… She’s been nominated twice before for Moulin Rouge (the best movie ever!) and won for The Hours and has been in the race for her Golden Globe nominated dramatic turns in The Others, Cold Mountain, Billy Bathgate, and Birth and won Globes for her roles in The Hours, Moulin Rouge and To Die For. Now, she’s starring in the film adaptation of the Tony and Pulitzer Prize winning play Rabbit Hole as a grieving mother, a role which netted Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City) a Tony Award. Judging from the trailer, Nicole is in fine form in what looks like a beautiful, heartbreaking, interesting and ultimately hopeful film. She’ll have plenty of support on-screen in fellow potential Oscar nominees Aaron Eckhart (a Globe nominee for Thank You for Smoking) and two-time Oscar winner Dianne Weist (Hannah and Her Sisters, Bullets over Broadway). Also in the cast are Emmy, Globe and SAG Award nominee Sandra Oh (Greys Anatomy, Sideways), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Jonn Tenney (The Closer) and Emmy winner Tammy Blanchard (Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows). The film was directed by Golden Globe nominee John Cameron Michtell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) and hits theatres on Dec. 17th. I expect this searing drama to be a big awards player in the coming months not only for Kidman, but in several big races. See for yourself with the trailer for Rabbit Hole below.
