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.

Give these People Emmy Nominations!

April 26, 2011

It’s been a little quiet on the Awards front lately for the entertainment biz, but no fret, things are about to ramp up. In June, we’ll have the Tony Awards honoring the best on Broadway and in July, this year’s Emmy nominations will come out. Of course I will give you my predictions and in a few weeks I’ll be posting a wish list of potential nominees. However, there are a few standout actors and actresses that I think deserve mention right now! So, take a look at my list of people who absolutely deserve Emmy nominations for the 2010-11 season alongside the obvious frontrunners like Jane Lynch, Juliana Marguiles, Michael C. Hall, Betty White, and Jon Hamm to name a few…

Here are some Dramatic candidates…

John Noble (Fringe): as the bumbling brilliant scientist Walter Bishop, Noble has been nothing short of spectacular for the past 3 seasons. He’s at times wounded, calculating, hilarious and heartfelt. However, this season he was even better as the show delved into an alternate universe where Noble also tackled Bishop’s doppelgänger, “Walternet”. This other role gave Noble a chance to be ruthless, brutal, and evil at the same time as his noble (pun intended) counter part on the other side. I dare say, not only does John Noble deserve a nom… he deserves a win.

Anna Torv (Fringe): ok, for the first two seasons, Torv was very adequate and then quite good as she grew in her performance as Olivia, the FBI investigator with a mysterious past on the best sci-fi show on TV, Fringe. But, this season, she simply blew it out of the park as she took on her doppelgänger in the alternate universe as well. Playing two distinct versions of herself~ one fighting for the truth and attempting to bring down her walls and open up to love while the other doing the evil bidding of “Walternet” and then subsequently realizing she’s on the wrong side, Torv has been fantastic. She’s even physically battled herself and shown tremendous growth and layers heretofore unkown. Give her, and this show for that matter, some kudos attention please!

Kadee Strickland (Private Practice): sure, she’s on a show  that’s the ignored stepchild of Greys Anatomy and rarely has it been awards worthy. However, every now and then the show nails it and with Strickland’s character Charlotte suffering a brutal rape and its consequences, the show rose above. And Strickland has been nothing short of brilliant. Her performance has been harrowing, brittle, broken and beautiful. If ever there was a time for this show to break through, it’s right here with Strickland’s exemplary work.

Sara Ramirez (Greys Anatomy): speaking of the mothership Greys, Tony Award winner Ramirez has been wonderful for years on the show, but never really got to standout. She was always eclipsed by great showboaters like Chandra Wilson and Sandra Oh. But in this season’s musical episode, it was all about Ramirez’s Callie and her amazing pipes. She was simply undeniable… In fact, check out the clip below and I dare you to say she doesn’t deserve a nomination.

Grey’s Anatomy~ Sara Ramirez “The Story

Michelle Forbes & Brent Sexton (The Killing): as the grieving parents on this season’s best new drama, Forbes and Sexton have been simply amazing. Their grief at the loss of their daughter has been palpable. Forbes mother has been driven into cataclysmic despair while Sexton’s father has become a conduit of rage and revenge. The are the most powerful players on an incredibly powerful show.

Matt Czuchry (The Good Wife): sure Alan Cumming, Archie Penjabi, Christine Baranski and Juliana Marguiles will all be nominated for the even better second season of the best drama on network TV. But even better news would be a well deserved nom for the incredibly charming, smart, devious, cocky and often understated work of Czuchry as the attorney their firm let go who’s now often their primary antagonist in court. Czuchry’s acting choices are always unexpected and wonderful and he should no longer stand in the shadows on this incredible ensemble.

Emmy Rossum (Shameless): while I’m no fan of this show, I find it incredibly hard to watch, often irresponsible, uncomfortable and William H. Macy’s main character utterly disgusting and awful, Shameless does have one big asset going for it. That is the masterful and ingenious performance of Emmy Rossum as the oldest sibling struggling to keep her extended family and her drunken disaster of a father together. Who knew the little singer from Phantom of the Opera had this powerhouse performance in her?

Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones): after only one scene in the premiere episode of Thrones, I said to myself “Peter Dinklage is gonna get an Emmy nomination.” He stands out among the sprawling cast on this epic show as the most interesting and unique character full of humor and debauchery that all belies great despair and anger. I can’t wait to see where they take his character and how high Dinklage’s performance can soar.

Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter): sure this show has been all about Michael C. Hall’s unquestionably astounding performance as the title serial killer (and a few of his awesome adversaries like John Lithgow and Johnny Lee Miller). But, this season Carpenter rose to the occasion with a depth we didn’t know she had. Dealing with the grief of a lost love, questioning her career, jumping into a convoluted and confusing new relationship with a coworker, and picking up the pieces of her brother’s fractured family life, Carpenter was just impeccable, ballsy, heartbreaking, funny and magnificent.

Now, before I head to some Comedy performers, here’s a quick shout out to some names, I’d love to hear on nomination day as well: Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy), Regina King (Southland), Matt Bomer (White Collar), Denis O’Hare (True Blood) and Michael Cudlitz (Southland).

And a few Comedy contenders…

Wendie Malick (Hot in Cleveland): it’s a foregone conclusion that Betty White is the front-runner to win Supporting Actress for HIC, but how’s about a nom (and win) for Malick in Lead Actress. She’s an amazing physical comedian and can spin a joke out of pretty much any word, yet still ground it in reality. And having guested on the show with her, I have to say she’s the consummate professional and a delight to work with. She’s also the most consistently funny person on the show if you ask me.

Courtney Cox (Cougar Town): How did she never get a nom for Friends? And how was she ignored last year? People get it together and nominate this brilliant and hilarious comedian on the most underrated comedy on network TV.

Busy Phillips (Cougar Town): in an ensemble full of Emmy worth performers (Christa Miller, Ian Gomez, Courtney Cox), Phillips is always a standout. She’s simply a riot and should be a front-runner for this award… if only she could get a nomination first…

Garrett Dillahunt (Raising Hope): he doesn’t stand a chance in the supporting category going up against Chris Colfer (Glee), Neil Patrick Harris (HIMYMother) and the men of Modern Family, but what a treat would it be if he got a nomination. As the biggest boob of a granddad on Raising Hope, Dillahunt never ceases to surprise with his hilarious takes and line readings. He could be a big wonderful surprise on nomination day.

And before I go, here’s some other Comedy names I hope to hear at the nominations: Martha Plimpton (Raising Hope), Allison Janney (the best thing about Mr. Sunshine), Vanessa Williams (the best thing about this season of Desperate Housewives), Matt LeBlanc (Episodes), Merritt Weaver (Nurse Jackie), Oliver Platt (The Big C) and Gwyneth Paltrow (Glee)… but I know the last one will happen in the Guest Actress category at least….

Anywho, there are a few of my “For Your Consideration” actors for this year’s Emmy noms. What do you think of them? And who would you add? Let me know below and watch for more Emmy suggestions and predictions in the weeks to come.

“Hot in Cleveland” is Hot n’ Hilarious!

June 17, 2010

TV Land ushered in its first original comedy last night with the hilarious sitcom Hot in Cleveland about 3 women “of a certain age” from Los Angeles who discover that they are indeed hot in Cleveland after a pit stop there. The trio is played by Emmy nominees Jane Leeves (Frasier) and Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me) and Golden Globe nominee Valerie Bertinelli (One Day at a Time) and they are a crack ensemble. Adding to the cache is 4 time Emmy winner and red-hot superstar Betty White as the curmudgeonly caretaker of the house the ladies end up renting in an effort to kickstart their lives and try something new. Here, in Cleveland they are seen as real, attractive women with a lot to offer; whereas in LA, they are all too often passed over. Wendie’s aging soap actress character is even being reduced to auditioning to play Megan Fox’s grandmother. Oh the horror. While that joke may seem a little obvious, in Malick’s capable hands, it’s hilarious. In fact, these great actresses, especially Malick and White, elevate the material and make it an uproariously good time. (Side note: I acted opposite Malick on the dearly departed Jake in Progress and let me tell you, she’s not only gorgeous and incredibly talented but also a wonderful and welcoming person). And I defy you not to giggle out loud at Jane Leeves licking herself after a night of drunken salty food eating fun. The show is also a throwback to the sitcoms of the 80’s and 90’s in style and tone that is appropriate for TV Land’s audience but is still enticing for new audiences because they do it so well. It feels like you’re hanging out with the new Golden Girls, just a little younger and now Betty White is mama Sophia. I say all that with love because the show, co-produced by Emmy winner and recent Tony nominee Sean Hayes, has incredible potential and is a great time. I look forward to seeing the ladies gel even further as an ensemble and explore what shenanigans these LA transplants will get into in middle America. Grade: A

Check out this great sneak peek of Hot in Cleveland below.

Betty’s Brilliance, the lost “Debbie Downer” sketch, muffins, and more!

May 10, 2010

We all know Betty White is a comedic TV legend who’s riding a hot streak in her 6th decade on-screen. With hit movies (The Proposal), big Super Bowl commercials, iconic TV roles on cherished shows (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls),16 Emmy nominations and 4 wins, Betty can do wrong, and she proved it yet again with her hilarious and brilliant turn hosting Saturday Night Live over the weekend. The 88 1/2 year old showed the kids how you do it with one of the funniest SNL’s in ages and its highest rated in over 2 years. She’s not easing up anytime soon either with a funny new TV Land sitcom, Hot in Cleveland, premiering in June (co-starring Jane Leeves, Valerie Bertinelli, and Wendie Malick), plus another comedy feature, You Again with Kristen Bell, out in September. Whew, I’m tired just typing. Imagine how Betty must feel. Oh, let’s be honest. She is the unstoppable energizer bunny and, I’ll say it, a national treasure. The SAG Awards even bestowed their Lifetime Achievement Award upon her in January where she gave an uproarious speech and memorably chided her Proposal costar Sandra Bullock. Everybody loves Betty! And you can love her some more right now. I’ve got arguably the funniest sketch from this weekend’s SNL for you, The NPR “Muffin” scene, plus the lost sketch with “Debbie Downer” and the full episode. Check them out below and long live Betty!
