Golden Globes 2020 Predictions: Best Actor and Actress in a TV Series — Drama

Golden Globes 2020 Predictions: Best Actor and Actress in a TV Series — Drama
Last Year’s Winners: Richard Madden, “Bodyguard” (Best Actor) and Sandra Oh, “Killing Eve

Still Eligible: No and yes, respectively.

Hot Streak: On the men’s side, no actor has won more than two trophies in this category, and the last person to add his second Globe to the mantle was Jon Hamm in 2015 for the final season of “Mad Men.” (His previous victory came in 2007 for the first season.) The women have fared a bit better, in terms of repeat wins — Angela Lansbury has four trophies in the category and Claire Danes has three, and Danes got rare back-to-back victories in 2011 and 2012 for “Homeland.” (Her other trophy came in 1994 for “My So-Called Life.”)

Notable Ineligible Actors: Richard Madden, “Bodyguard”; Matthew Rhys, “The Americans”; Stephan James, “Homecoming”; Julia Roberts, “Homecoming”; Keri Russell, “The Americans

The Power: Amazon Casts Leslie Mann in TV Adaptation

Kayti Burt Oct 31, 2019

Leslie Mann will star as one of four protagonists in Amazon's 10-episode adaptation of Naomi Alderman's The Power.

According to Deadline, Leslie Mann has been cast as the lead in the adaptation, with Reed Morano (The Handmaid's Tale) behind the camera in the director's seat.

Alderman is adapting her own novel for the screen, along with an all-female writers' room, which is pretty damn awesome. The team will include: Claire Wilson, Sarah Quintrell, Whit Anderson, Stacy Osei-Kuffour and novelist Rebecca Levene (The Hollow Gods Trilogy).

The Power is set in a world where women suddenly develop the ability to release electrical jolts from their hand, leading them to become the dominant gender over men. The novel avoids essentializing women as nurturing, empathetic leaders,

Will Peter Dinklage (‘Game of Thrones’) become only 2nd actor in 25 years to pull off this rare feat at SAG Awards?

Will Peter Dinklage (‘Game of Thrones’) become only 2nd actor in 25 years to pull off this rare feat at SAG Awards?
While the Screen Actors Guild Awards honor supporting performances for film, there is no such distinction for television. Instead, lead TV stars and supporting players compete together in categories separated by genre and gender. It should come as no surprise then that in the race for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series, there’s an obvious bias toward leading men. In fact, only once in the 25-year history of the SAG Award has a supporting actor taken home the prize: John Lithgow (“The Crown”) in 2017. Can Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) now become the second such featured performer to prevail?

For “Game of Thrones,” Dinklage has been nominated five times for individual SAG Awards and six times as part of the show’s sprawling cast. He’s now in the Emmy record books

Kitty Green’s Harvey Weinstein-Inspired Film ‘The Assistant’ Picked Up by Bleecker Street
Bleecker Street has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Kitty Green’s Harvey Weinstein scandal-inspired film “The Assistant.”

The Assistant” follows a day in the life of Jane, played by Julia Garner (“Ozark”), a recent college graduate and aspiring film producer, who has recently landed her dream job as a junior assistant to a powerful entertainment mogul. Her day is much like any other assistant’s – making coffee, changing the paper in the copy machine, ordering lunch, arranging travel, taking phone messages, onboarding a new hire.

As Jane follows her daily routine, she, and we, grow increasingly aware of the abuse that insidiously colors every aspect of her work day, an accumulation of degradations against which Jane decides to take a stand, only to discover the true depth of the system into which she has entered.

Why ‘Ozark’ Is One Of The Best Shows On TV

In a post-Breaking Bad world, television viewers have been looking for similar shows to spend their weekends bingeing on. While we have been treated to a new Breaking Bad movie in the form of El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie which debuted at the weekend, we had to wait six years for it to come along. We did have the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, which has run for four seasons so far (a fifth is on the way), but the landscape had been Barron for quality crime fiction on the small screen – that was until Ozark came along. In just two seasons, it has already established itself as one of the best shows on TV. Here’s why.

The pilot episode of Ozark was, quite frankly, gripping from the outset. We meet Jason Bateman’s character, financial advisor Martin “Marty” Byrde, in the first episode

Golden Globes TV predictions: 9 editors predict ‘Chernobyl’ to win Best Limited Series, 1 bets on ‘When They See Us’

  • Gold Derby
Last month Emmy voters exploded over HBO’s “Chernobyl,” awarding it with 10 trophies including series, writing and directing. Not to be outdone, Netflix’s “When They See Us” nabbed statuettes for lead actor Jharrel Jerome and casting. Gold Derby’s staff editors who cover awards year-round now believe the Golden Globes will follow suit in rewarding the program about the 1986 nuclear meltdown. At least, nine of them do. The remaining editor goes rogue in predicting a victory for Ava DuVernay‘s true-to-life adaptation of the Central Park Five story.

The nine staffers who believe “Chernobyl” will prevail are Chris Beachum, Riley Chow, Joyce Eng, Marcus James Dixon, Zach Laws, Rob Licuria, Daniel Montgomery, Paul Sheehan and Susan Wloszczyna.

The lone holdout who picks “When They See Us” to win is Matt Noble, though he does have “Chernobyl” in his runner-up position.

‘Succession’: For the Love of ‘L to the O-g,’ This Brilliant HBO Series Is a Comedy
Maybe it’s because of its Emmy categorization in drama, but recently, there’s been a lot of discussion about “Succession” as though it’s not intentionally funny; as though the idea that it could be looked at as a comedy — albeit, a dementedly dark comedy — is preposterous. It tends to end up being compared to very clear-cut comedies, especially its cable network-mate, the terrific “The Righteous Gemstones,” in a way that describes those series as “the funny version of ‘Succession'”… as though “Succession” itself isn’t inherently the funny version of “Succession.”

“Succession” has always been a dark comedy masquerading as a prestige drama. HBO’s hourlong critical darling honestly has more in common with “Fleabag” or “Flowers” than it does “Ozark.” But that’s also because it’s specifically a dark British comedy conveniently masquerading as an American prestige drama.

Succession is just Arrested Development minus jokes.
