They’re Here… My Big Bold 2012 Emmy WINNER Predictions…

September 18, 2012

Sunday night is TV’s biggest night as the Emmy Awards are announced on ABC in a ceremony hosted by a nominee himself, the hilarious Jimmy Kimmel… If history is any indication, Mad Men and Modern Family will repeat as the Drama and Comedy winners. However, I have a feeling we are in for a shakeup this year, especially on the Drama side. It’s the most competitive year in ages with four drama series all boasting a strong shot to win while we should see some new comedy acting winners as well… With that said, take a look at my big bold Emmy winner predictions below and watch the big show Sunday night!

* this category is fierce. I feel like Mad Men will finally lose the crown, but I won’t be surprised if it grabs one more victory. However, Abbey appeals to all demos of the voting group and should prevail over the classic but violent and dark Bad. If those three all split the vote, the very deserving Homeland or the big winner from the Creative Arts ceremony, Game of Thrones, could pull an upset.

Robin, Channing and Julia named among People’s 50 Most Beautiful!

April 28, 2010

It’s that time of year again… yes, the time when People Magazine names its list of the 50 most beautiful people in the world! Or more accurately, the 50 most beautiful people in the entertainment world! There are several of the usual suspects on the list again like Julia Roberts (the cover girl), Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Aniston and J Lo, but there are also several new folks riding hot buzz that land in the issue. Among the first timers are Amanda Seyfried, Zoe Saldana, Robert Pattinson, Channing Tatum, Sofia Vergara, Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper. Tween singing sensation Justin Bieber also merited a mention somehow. I’m most excited that my favorite actress (after the glorious Meryl Streep) is included on the list, Miss Robin Wright. I’ve been a fan of this brilliant and stunningly never Oscar nominated actress going all the way back to her Emmy nominated role on the best soap in history, Santa Barbara. She’s been giving great and critically acclaimed performances for years in films like Forrest Gump (SAG & Golden Globe noms), The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, State of Play and She’s So Lovely (SAG nom). She may finally get in the Oscar race with this fall’s The Conspirator co-starring James MacAvoy and directed by Robert Redford. It tells the tale of Mary Surrat the only woman charged in the conspiracy to kill President Lincoln. Sounds like Awards bait to me… Check out the first set picture below and click here for more info on the film.

The Emmys: Which of these Funny Ladies do you Support?

April 2, 2010

 Here’s the latest installment of my series looking at this year’s competitors for the Emmy Awards. Today, it’s more comedy with the funny supporting actress vying for the trophy.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS COMEDY SERIES CONTENDERS:

Locks:

Jane Lynch (Glee): the Golden Globe nominee and SAG ensemble award winner plays the breakout TV character of the season with the acerbic bitter and ballsy Sue Sylvester. She has the best one liners anywhere on television and Lynch makes the most of every single one. I’d say she’s the clear front-runner.

Jane Krakowski (30 Rock): This Tony winner was a nominee last year and looks likely to repeat and possibly steal Lynch’s trophy as the wacky narcissistic and hilarious Jenna Maloney. She’s also a former Golden Globe nominee and SAG Ensemble winner for her work on both 30 Rock and Ally McBeal.

Good Bets:

Kristin Wiig (Saturday Night Live): She remains the best (and sometimes only) reason to watch SNL with hilarious characters like the Target Lady and Sue Surprise. A burgeoning film career (Macgruber, Paul, Whip It)  can only bolster her chances on grabbing a second consecutive nomination.

Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty): the 3 time nominee may finally win the golden girl on her 4th try for Ugly Betty’s last season. The show and Williams have been on fire and she’s certainly overdue for her uproarious role as venomous “Wilhelmina Slater”. She’s also a perennial SAG nominee, a Broadway vet and a multiple Grammy Award nominee.

Strong Contenders:

Sofia Vergara (Modern Family): playing the hot Columbian mama Gloria, Vergara has finally found a sitcom worthy of her immense talents. She more than holds her own on TV’s smartest hit comedy.

Julie Bown (Modern Family): playing the straight woman to Ty Burrell’s crazy husband and wacky kids, Bowen mines comic gold with the best Bea Arthur takes in ages. The former SAG nominee (Boston Legal, Weeds, Modern Family) may grab her first individual kudos this year.

Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds): with 3 previous nominations and no wins, Perkins could be overdue. A former Golden Globe and SAG nomine who’s also well respected for her dramatic work, she’s perfection as the severely flawed and acid tongued Celia on Weeds.

Jenna Fischer (The Office): with her fantastic work this season as her character “Pam” dealt with her first pregnancy, Fischer could land a second career Emmy nomination to go with all those SAG Ensemble Award wins.

Outside Shot:

Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm): a two time Emmy and SAG nominee for her role as the long suffering wife/ex-wife of Larry David on Curb, Hines could be a contender again this year.

Holland Taylor (Two and a Half Men): a former Emmy winner for The Practice and a three time nominee for Two and a Half Men, veteran Taylor can’t be ruled out as a threat. In my opinion, she’s the only reason to watch that boring and conventional sitcom.

Jayma Mays (Glee): as OCD clean freak “Emma” on this season’s sensation Glee, Mays could be a surprise nominee. She’s hilarious and heartfelt in every scene and has been a guest star on practically every other show on television only adding to her notoriety in the biz. She shared in the SAG ensemble award earlier this year as well.

Loveable Longshots:

Busy Phillips (Cougar Town): ever since Freaks and Geeks, Phillips has been a go to sidekick on a number of shows (Dawson’s Creek, ER), but never has she been better or funnier as the flighty and flirtatious “Laurie” on the increasingly addictive freshman show Cougar Town.

Becki Newton (Ugly Betty): Newton has been criminally ignored by the Emmys and Globes for her wonderful work as airheaded “Amanda” on Ugly Betty. However this season her character’s growth and depth have given Newton some seriously great submission episodes that may finally get her a nod. At least she has two SAG ensemble nominations and a new pilot for fall season.

Merrit Weaver (Nurse Jackie): holding her own against multiple Emmy winner Edie Falco is a tough job but Weaver is more than up to the task. As the goofy newbie nurse “Zoey”, Weaver could ride a potential Jackie Emmy wave to a nomination.

On the ballot, not gonna happen:

Eve Best (Nurse Jackie), Conchatta Ferrell (Two and A Half Men), Alyson Hanigan (How I Met Your Mother), Colbie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), Angela Kinsey (The Office), Dana Delaney (Desperate Housewives), Amber Riley (Glee), and Portia DeRossi (Better Off Ted)~ I’d love that one though!

~So, just who do I think is most deserving? Here’s my rankings of this year’s contenders:

1. Jane Lynch

2. Jane Krakowski

3. Vanessa Williams

4. Kristen Wiig

5. Becki Newton

6. Julie Bowen

7. Sofia Vergara

8. Busy Phililps

9. Amber Riley (hello, did you see her “And I Am Telling You” or “Bust Your Windows” numbers?!!)

10. Jenna Fischer

~But who do I think will grab the nominations? Here are my current predictions for this year’s Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series:

Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock), Jane Lynch (Glee), Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds), Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live), Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty)
