‘Schitt’s’ happens at the Golden Globes? Our top users think it might this year

According to the combined predictions of more than 1,000 Gold Derby users, “Schitt’s Creek” is on the bubble in multiple categories at the Golden Globes, but it’s not among the top five likely contenders in any categories thus far. So there’s a chance it could sweep the nominations, but there’s also a chance it could be shut out. Some of our Top 24 Users are betting on a sweep.

Our Top 24 got the highest scores predicting last year’s Golden Globe nominations, and though “Schitt’s Creek” ranks sixth overall with 13/1 odds, seven of these elite users are betting on it to make the cut. The Golden Globes usually prefer to honor new shows to established favorites, but “Schitt’s” is a little bit of both.

David Wingo (‘The Report’ composer) on creating a ‘spare,’ ‘insistent’ score for ’70s-inspired true life thriller [Exclusive Video Interview]
For composer David Wingo, “The Report” was “the kind of movie I’ve always wanted to work on,” something that’s “in the vein of ’70s paranoia thrillers” like “All the President’s Men” (1976) and “Three Days of the Condor” (1975). “I feel like those kinds of movies aren’t getting made that much anymore, and those are some of my favorite films and some of my favorite scores.” The composer spoke at length about his score for the film while appearing at Gold Derby’s Meet the Experts panel, hosted by managing editor Chris Beachum. Watch our exclusive video interview with Wingo above.

SEEOscar predictions: Top 10 frontrunners for Best Actor include Adam Driver, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix and …

Wingo has long been attracted to films that are essentially about “people exchanging information to one another, and it’s mostly talking,” which is something that doesn’t happen a lot in the titles he works on.

Andrew Scott has to defy some major comedy bias to win the Golden Globes’ TV supporting actor prize

Andrew Scott has to defy some major comedy bias to win the Golden Globes’ TV supporting actor prize
Andrew Scott, aka Hot Priest, was so cruelly snubbed by the Emmys that even Bradley Whitford is still thinking about it. The “Fleabag” star might get some justice at the Golden Globes, where he is not only expected to earn a nomination but a win as well. However, you may want to think twice before picking him to take home the statuette.

Scott would only be the fourth person this century to win the Globes’ catch-all Best TV Supporting Actor award for a comedy series. The other three are Robert Downey Jr., who won for his comeback on “Ally McBeal” in 2001, Jeremy Piven for “Entourage” in 2008 and Chris Colfer for “Glee” in 2011. Yup, it’d be nine years between victories for comedy players should Scott prevail in January. The situation is even more dire on the actress side: Only two winners this century have been for comedies, Kim Cattrall for

HBO Adds Mental Health Awareness Disclaimers Before ‘Euphoria,’ ‘Barry,’ and ‘Sopranos’

  • Indiewire
Starting October 10 — World Mental Health Day — HBO is adding mental health awareness disclaimers, called “bumpers”, to select episodes of its programming, including from shows like “Euphoria”, “Barry”, and “The Sopranos”. These bumpers will specifically occur before episodes that feature scenes of mental illness, as well as provide the phone number for a mental health hotline (1.833.HBO.Nami) for viewers to call for help with related issues.

According to a statement released by HBO, with It’s Ok, the cable network will “highlight a diversity of characters seen throughout the network’s series whose stories can help to normalize the conversation.”

Watch Halsey’s Stunning Performance of ‘Time After Time’ at the 2019 Emmy Awards
As part of Sunday night’s In Memoriam tribute at the 2019 Emmy Awards, Halsey performed a version of Cyndi Lauper’s 1983 classic “Time After Time,” over a montage of television stars who died over the past year.

Introduced by actress Regina King, the singer performed accompanied only by a pianist and honored Katherine Helmond, Tim Conway, Gloria Vanderbilt, Penny Marshall, Luke Perry, Peter Fonda, Stan Lee, Rip Torn, and many others. The awards received some criticism online for omitting Peter Tork of the 1960s rock-group comedy “The Monkees.”

Halsey’s next album, “Manic,” is due in January.

While two shows that ended last season, “Game of Thrones” and “Veep,” were expected to win big, only the former did — at Sunday’s ceremony, “Game of Thrones” won the drama series trophy and supporting drama actor for Peter Dinklage, while “Veep” was shut out.

Emmys 2019: Amazon and ‘Fleabag’ Shine Bright on ‘Game of Thrones’ Big Night

Emmys 2019: Amazon and ‘Fleabag’ Shine Bright on ‘Game of Thrones’ Big Night
It was supposed to be a battle between the behemoths, with Netflix and HBO butting heads to determine the future of television, but somewhere along the way an $800 billion company became the little engine who could.

Amazon Prime Video had an outstanding showing at the 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards, earning seven awards, two supporting actor awards for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” one for “A Very English Scandal,” and a shocking four prestigious prizes for Phoebe Waller-Bridge brainchild “Fleabag.”

While “Fleabag” was seen as a likely winner for writing in a comedy series, the show also pulled upsets for Waller-Bridge in lead actress in a comedy, Harry Bradbeer for directing, and the plummiest plaudit of all, Outstanding Comedy Series.

It was a shocking turn of events given the competition the series faced, both in retiring heavyweight HBO’s “Veep” and returning champion, Amazon’s own “Mrs. Maisel.”

Emmys 2019 Telecast Review: Yup, It’s Time to Bring Back the Host

Emmys 2019 Telecast Review: Yup, It’s Time to Bring Back the Host
Did “The Masked Singer” host the 2019 Emmys, or did it just feel like it? Chaos, after all, is the guiding force on Fox’s Emmy-nominated reality show, but it shouldn’t be when it comes to a prestigious awards ceremony. Less hubbub was made about the Emmys’ decision to go without a host than when the Oscars did it seven months prior, but while the Film Academy salvaged an entertaining telecast from the trash heap that was its lead-in (and winners’ list), the TV Academy couldn’t follow suit. Though plenty of surprise wins helped keep things interesting for die-hard Emmy fans, this year’s show didn’t feature enough personality, uniformity, or orchestrated highlights — you know, the things a host typically provides.

Even if you disagree, this much should have been clear to everyone: Going without a host for the start of the Emmys is hard enough, but drawing

Emmys 2019: The Biggest Snubs and Surprises

  • Variety
Although the HBO series”Game of Thrones” and “Veep” both came to an end this year and therefore were seeing their final chances to be celebrated at the Emmys, the voting members of the Television Academy did not just tick off all the boxes for those two behemoths and call it a night. In fact, far from it.

At Sunday’s ceremony, “Game of Thrones” won the drama series trophy and supporting drama actor for Peter Dinklage, while “Veep” was shut out.

There were some other repeat names called this year, including lead comedy actor winner Bill Hader (“Barry”) and supporting comedy actress winner Alex Borstein (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”), but the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were chock-full of new names accepting onstage in the Microsoft Theater at L.A.

‘Fleabag’ dominated the comedy Emmys, but didn’t stop ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ from making history of its own
“Fleabag” was the big winner at the 2019 Emmys on the comedy side of the aisle. It won four times: Best Comedy Series and Best Comedy Actress (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) along with prizes for both its writing (Waller-Bridge again) and directing (Harry Bradbeer). But it didn’t stop “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” from making history of its own. Check out the complete list of Emmy winners here.

The four victories for “Fleabag” on Sunday night, combined with its two prizes at the Creative Arts Awards on September 15, bring its total for the year to 6 prizes out of its 11 nominations. But last year’s big winner “Maisel” didn’t come away from the telecast empty-handed. It won both supporting acting races for Alex Borstein and Tony Shalhoub. It was Borstein’s second straight win in the category, but it was Shalhoub’s first for this show. He did win three times before, though:

Bill Hader Evades Question About Shane Gillis’ ‘SNL’ Controversy, Addresses Sensitivity In Comedy – Emmys Backstage
Bill Hader, speaking backstage to the press tonight following his Best Actor Comedy Emmy win, was promptly asked his thoughts over his late night alma mater Saturday Night Live firing comedian Shane Gillis over his past racial slurs.

“No, I have no thoughts on that,” answered Hader. However, the Barry star and co-creator opted to comment on a follow-up question about how sensitive comedy has become today.

Said Hader, “You shouldn’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings, I think especially in comedy. (If) you did stuff six or seven years ago that wouldn’t be good now, that’s for good reason….Like everybody, you have to grow.”

“I’m never interested in upsetting anybody,” added Hader.

While backstage, Hader updated everyone on season 3 of his Emmy-winning comedy series Barry.
