The Television Academy pulled a rarity this year: They got the Emmys nominations right.

Well, mostly — and, let’s face it, even that doesn’t happen very often.

The Tuesday morning nominations were announced, virtually, by father-daughter Emmy winners Ron Cephas Jones (“This Is Us”) and Jasmine Cephas Jones (“#FreeRayshawn”), with Ron in New York and Jasmine in LA. They started with the usual scripted banter, punctuated by awkward secondslong delays, and Jasmine stumbled over the name of “Ted Lasso” nominee Jason Sudeikis. It happens. And, those glitches aside, it was a big improvement on last year’s over-the-top nom announcements, presented (loudly) by Leslie Jones.

But all eyes were on the nominees this time, and those who deserved to be singled out were recognized for their efforts, among them Sudeikis for the heartwarming “Ted Lasso,” Jean Smart for her career-renaissance role in “Hacks,” Anya Taylor-Joy for “The Queen’s Gambit” and Kate Winslet for “Mare of Easttown,” plus the talents behind Amazon’s wickedly smart “The Boys.” Smart also received a nomination for her supporting role on “Mare of Easttown,” upping her odds for walking away with a statuette when the Emmys air live Sept. 19 on CBS.

As usual, there were the “enough already” nods — among them “The Kominsky Method” (sans Alan Arkin in its final season), Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) and “This Is Us” — but they were kept to a minimum. They were joined by many newcomers, including Elizabeth Olsen (“WandaVision”), Michaela Coel (“I May Destroy You”), Josh O’Connor and Emma Corin (Charles and Diana on “The Crown”), Regé-Jean Page (“Bridgerton”) and Jonathan Majors (“Lovecraft Country”).

Production delays caused by the pandemic, referenced by academy president and CEO Frank Scherma in his opening remarks, meant several of the usual contenders, including “Better Call Saul,” “Ozark” and “Stranger Things,” were not eligible this year. Thankfully that also applied to the overrated and over-nominated “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross (ABC’s “Black-ish”), Kenan Thompson (NBC’s “Kenan”), Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us,” also NBC) and Allison Janney (“Mom” on CBS) were the lone broadcast nominees in the lead acting categories. “Black-ish” and the hoary “This Is Us” snared nominations for Best Comedy and Best Drama.

The late-night nominees were as expected — they’re the same every year, and only “Conan,” now a memory after slipping away in June, was a surprise. Perhaps it was the academy’s way of thanking Conan O’Brien for his many years of talk-show service. (And, let’s face it, his viewership on TBS was, to put it politely, “a challenge” over the years.)

It was surprising that “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” wasn’t nominated in any of the major categories (it received five nods, mostly in technical categories); it was a big hit for Disney+ with a rabid fan base. That said, Disney+ cleaned up for “The Mandalorian” (24 nominations) and the aforementioned “WandaVision” (23 nominations), balancing the Marvel scales of TV justice.

And how about “Cobra Kai” getting a nod for Best Comedy Series? Heady stuff for a series that premiered on YouTube before moving to Netflix. It probably won’t win in a tough field — it’s up against “Ted Lasso,” “Hacks” and “The Flight Attendant” — but, as they say, it’s nice just to be nominated.

Streamers and superheroes battle for pandemic-era Emmy nods

Macau Business 13 July, 2021 - 07:43pm

Like the rest of us, the Television Academy's 25,000 voters spent several months stuck at home, leaving them ample time to sift through a stripped-down selection of series from their sofas.

Nominees for TV's equivalent of the Oscars will be announced in a live-streamed ceremony starting at 1530 GMT, after which final-round voting begins for the 73rd Emmy Awards, set for September 19.

Here are five things to look out for as the nominations are unveiled:

The arrival of Covid-19 early last year shut down filming and upended TV production schedules, meaning the overall number of Emmy contenders has fallen.

Heavyweights like Netflix's royal drama "The Crown" managed to wrap just before lockdown, while others including Hulu's dystopian saga "The Handmaid's Tale" rushed back to set as soon as restrictions eased.

But the enforced hiatus meant popular shows like "Succession," last year's best drama winner, failed to produce a season in time for this year's awards.

That has created room for newcomers -- especially in comedy, where Michael Douglas's "The Kominsky Method" is the sole nominee from last year running again.

The race for best comedy series "is going to have so much fresh blood in it," said IndieWire's TV awards editor Libby Hill.

"When your job is to have an idea of what's going to happen, a year like this is just pandemonium."

In recent years, Netflix has unseated HBO in the battle for the most nominations.

Given the streaming giant's prodigious output, that is unlikely to change this year, according to Hill, who describes premium cable channel HBO as the "niche arthouse to Netflix's megaplex."

But nominations don't necessarily translate into wins, and Netflix has somehow never won the Emmys for best drama, best comedy or best limited series.

"This is most likely The Crown's year," said Hill, with previous drama winners "Succession" and "Game of Thrones" absent, and the British royals saga delivering "a spectacular fourth season."

Netflix's cultural phenomenon "The Queen's Gambit," which sent chessboard sales soaring, is tipped to dominate the limited series awards.

The Emmys' limited series category -- for shows stopping after one season -- has become ever more competitive in recent years, drawing Hollywood's top A-listers to the small screen's most prestigious projects.

This year, "The Queen's Gambit" faces formidable competition from Kate Winslet's small-town murder mystery "Mare of Easttown," and the Barry Jenkins-directed slavery tale "The Underground Railroad."

Also competing are two series delving into London's Black communities -- HBO's critically adored "I May Destroy You," which follows the aftermath of a rape, and Steve McQueen's "Small Axe" immigrant anthology.

All those limited series must fend off a new foe -- the superheroes of Marvel's "WandaVision."

The show starring popular characters from Marvel's record-breaking films, including Elizabeth Olsen's magical witch Wanda Maximoff, won legions of fans and critical praise for its quirky send-up of classic TV sitcoms.

It is not the only "genre" show gatecrashing the Emmys -- fellow Marvel series "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" is running for best drama, alongside "Star Wars" spin-off "The Mandalorian," which earned 15 nods and seven wins last year.

"I don't think there's that inborn bias like you find in film, that divide between what's 'popular' and what's 'high art,'" said Hill.

"I think there's plenty of room for Marvel at the Emmys."

Traditional US television networks are rapidly vanishing from the Emmys conversation, but the number of streamers in play continues to multiply.

Looking to build on their launches last year, Apple TV+ is campaigning hard for "Ted Lasso" -- the hot favorite in comedy, about a hapless American football coach thrust into English soccer -- while Disney+ has "Hamilton" in addition to its superhero offerings.

Making their debuts, HBO's new sister streaming platform HBO Max has original comedies "The Flight Attendant" and "Hacks," and NBC's Peacock streamer boasts the Tina Fey-produced "Girls5eva."

Cedric the Entertainer to host TV's Emmy Awards ceremony

Rappler 13 July, 2021 - 04:37am

Comedian Cedric the Entertainer will host this year's live telecast of the Emmy Awards, the highest US honors for television, in front of a limited in-person audience, broadcaster CBS announced on Monday, July 12.

The Emmys are scheduled to take place on September 19 at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles at a ceremony attended by nominees and their guests, the network said.

"I can't wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year," said Cedric the Entertainer, who stars in CBS comedy The Neighborhood.

Last year, the Emmys were a largely virtual affair with no red carpet and no audience at the ceremony. Most of the nominees appeared via video as a safeguard against the COVID-19 pandemic.

CBS did not say how many people would comprise this year's limited in-person audience. Pre-pandemic, thousands of stars and other entertainment figures would normally attend the annual event.

Nominations for the Emmy Awards will be announced early on Tuesday, July 13. The September ceremony will air on the CBS broadcast network and on streaming service Paramount+.

TV ratings for awards shows have been on the decline for years and dropped further during the pandemic. The 2020 Emmys attracted record low viewership of around 6.1 million people in the United States. – Rappler.com

I can’t wait to take the stage to celebrate all of the great shows and performances that made us laugh, cry, dance and sing over the past year.”

The executive producers of last year’s show, Reginald Hudlin and Ian Stewart, and director Hamish Hamilton will return for the 2021 Emmys.
