Emmy battle over best drama actress: Julianna Margulies vs. Kyra Sedgwick

August 23, 2010 |  9:02 am

Chris "Boomer" Beachum, Rob Licuria (AwardsHeaven) and I agree that Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") will win the Emmy for best drama actress, but we're not confident. Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer") submitted the best sample episode to judges. Usually, that decides who wins. Sedgwick has something else going for her. After four defeats so far, she's long overdue to triumph. So this contest is a squeaker — really too close to call. But since we're pundits we have to call it anyway. Watch how we squirm with nervousness in our webcam smackdown.

DRAMA LEAD ACTRESS: ROB'S PREDIX
1. Julianna Margulies, "The Good Wife" ("Threesome")
2. Kyra Sedgwick, "The Closer" ("Maternal Instincts")
3. Glenn Close, "Damages" ("Your Secrets Are Safe")
4. Connie Britton, "Friday Night Lights" ("After the Fall")
5. Mariska Hargitay, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" ("Perverted")
6. January Jones, "Mad Men" ("The Gypsy and the Hobo")

ROB'S COMMENTARY: January Jones has never been better than in Season 3 of "Mad Men" and is a deserving nominee, but I couldn't help but feel that she was a little out of her league here. Opposite Jon Hamm in this pivotal episode, I think she came across a little wooden and more reactionary rather than being the highlight/standout of the episode (aka Jon Hamm himself). Against the caliber of some of these other actresses, I think Jones brings up the rear in this category.

Mariska Hargitay also does not do anything that I would call particularly Emmy-worthy in her episode. She is good. In fact, she is always good, but I can't see "winner" in this one. Sorry. I think her nomination is the reward.

Julianna margulies Kyra Sedgwick Emmys news

Connie Britton has some excellent material in her episode, but she suffers from not having as much impact as is often necessary. Her acting style is natural, almost underplayed in most respects, and while she has some brilliant writing to showcase her charm and wit (even defiance), the lack of "fireworks" disadvantages her. But I really like her alot, and think she is one of the best actresses on TV right now, and definitely deserving of an Emmy sometime soon.

Glenn Close is Glenn Close. Enough said. That she has a mediocre episode without anything remotely Emmy-worthy harms her chances at a three-peat. But I've learned over the years to never count out Glenn Close. She is all-powerful. And she has two scenes in particular -- one in the flash-forward car accident, and one opposite Lily Tomlin, that are really impressive.

Kyra Sedgwick officially has the best episode of the bunch. Range, impact, screen time. All winners. Some of her scenes with the dying teenage boy are absolutely perfect. Plus, she is likeable, popular in the industry, and well overdue.

But I have Julianna Margulies in the top spot because I think that her episode is enough for her to scrape across the line. She has been criticized for being too subtle, but I think she does enough to evoke the pain, humiliation and confusion of the jilted wife of the philandering politician husband. The subtlety isn't a bad thing. It's just that Emmy voters love their fireworks. It doesn't hurt that she is the star of the biggest new network show of the season and a nominee for best drama series.

DRAMA LEAD ACTRESS: BOOMER'S PREDIX
1. Julianna Margulies, "The Good Wife" ("Threesome")
2. Kyra Sedgwick, "The Closer" ("Maternal Instincts")
3. Glenn Close, "Damages" ("Your Secrets Are Safe")
4. January Jones, "Mad Men" ("The Gypsy and the Hobo")
5. Mariska Hargitay, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" ("Perverted")
6. Connie Britton, "Friday Night Lights" ("After the Fall")

BOOMER'S COMMENTARY: First of all, I want to thank the voters for getting rid of some major stars (Sally Field and Holly Hunter) who could no longer be justified with nominations based on their most recent seasons. I wish they had done the same with Mariska Hargitay, who continues to essentially receive one showcase episode each year, but whose show has had a major downfall in quality in the last few years. I don't think she really has a shot this time to win.

Dueling Emmy predictions: Mike versus Tom

August 13, 2010 |  1:25 pm
Emmy logo sparkle-1

Entertainment Weekly's Mike Ausiello and I mostly agree on who'll win Emmys in the top series races Aug. 29. However, there are significant differences in our rankings per category, and there is drastic disagreement over how we size up the contest for best comedy actor. I've got Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") in first place, Mike's got him in last!

Note: My predix are still a bit tentative. I haven't seen a few of the episodes submitted to Emmy judges by nominees as examples of their best work. When I finish up that viewing in a few days, I may make a few changes. Mike may want to make a few last-minute switcheroos too? Meantime, thank you, Mike, for piping in.

Drama series lead acting races: By the numbers

July 9, 2010 | 10:22 am

Glenn Close Bryan Cranston Emmy Awards Before this year, the six women competing for lead actress in a drama series at the Emmy Awards had tallied up an impressive 26 nominations among them, with five wins. Returning nominees Glenn Close ("Damages") and Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order: SVU") are two of the three most recent winners in this category; the other, Sally Field ("Brothers & Sisters"), was dropped from the race after three bids.

Reigning champ Close won this award for each of the first two seasons of the FX legal drama. She took home her first Emmy Award (out of eight performance nods) for headlining the 1995 telefilm "Serving in Silence." This year marks Hargitay's seventh consecutive nomination for "Law & Order: SVU," with her win coming in 2006.

Julianna Margulies -- who contends for the freshman hit "The Good Wife" -- was nominated for all six of the seasons she was on "ER." She won the supporting award for the first year of that ratings smash in 1994, then contended again in that category the following year before moving up, albeit unsuccessfully, to the lead race for four years.

All three of these women have won Golden Globes for their Emmy-nominated roles -- Hargitay and Close on the first of their two nods in 2004 and 2007, respectively, and Margulies at the most recent ceremony.

Although Kyra Sedgwick has yet to prevail at the Emmys despite four previous nominations for "The Closer," she did win on the second of her five consecutive Golden Globe nods in 2006. While this is the first Emmy recognition for January Jones ("Mad Men"), she did contend in the lead race at the last two Golden Globes. This is the first Emmy nomination for Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights").

The men in the lead actor drama series race have 17 previous performance nominations but only two wins. Both of those were for reigning champ Bryan Cranston for the first two seasons of "Breaking Bad." Before these victories, Cranston was a three-time also ran in the supporting actor comedy series race for "Malcolm in the Middle" (2002, 2003, 2006).

'Glee' and 'Modern Family' lead Gold Derby TV Award nominations

FX revs up 'Sons of Anarchy' and 'Justified' for Emmy race

June 1, 2010 | 10:19 am
Sons of anarchy fx emmy news

FX is a savvy Emmy player. Back in 2002, it became the first basic-cable network to nab a top award when Michael Chiklis ("The Shield") won best drama series actor. Two years ago it became one of the first basic-cable channels to be nominated for best drama series (along with AMC for eventual winner "Mad Men") when "Damages" made the list. "Damages" repeated that feat last year (as did "Mad Men," which won again) while its star, Glenn Close, prevailed as best drama series actress at both derbies.

FX 4 emmy

Now, watch out: FX is making a major push for more Emmy glory. Not only did it just ship a handsome package of three DVDs to TV academy members, but it published a glossy 56-page publication that's bundled and poly-bagged with the June issue of Emmy Magazine, which is sent separately to all 14,000 academy members.

The publication deserves an award for marketing savvy. Text is large, bold and easily readable (thank you, art director). Design is elegant and dramatic. Most curious: what FX touts first inside its pages — "Sons of Anarchy," which is the network's highest-rated series ever. TV critics are crazy for it too. Blurbs inside the booklet quote the views of top media like Time magazine ("one of the best dramas on TV") and the New York Daily News (" 'Sons of Anarchy' can't be left out of any conversation about the golden age of cable drama"). EW.com says Katey Sagal "delivers a steely, layered, Emmy-worthy performance."

FX 1 emmy

Next inside the booklet: "Justified." Matt Roush of TV Guide calls the new crime show "an instant classic," adding, " 'Justified' is cool. It is hot. And it is great."

FX 6 Emmy

Emmy predix: Best TV drama actress

April 14, 2010 |  1:13 pm

Our resident Emmy seers Chris "Boomer" Beachum and Robert "Rob L" Licuria (AwardsHeaven.net) agree on four of the six stars who'll be nominated for best drama actress: Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer"), January Jones ("Mad Men"), recent Golden Globes and SAG Awards champ Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife") and Glenn Close ("Damages"), who's gone undefeated in this Emmy race for the past two years.

For the final two slots, Boomer picks Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order: SVU") and Melissa Leo ("Treme"), while Rob opts for Sally Field ("Brothers & Sisters") and Anna Paquin ("True Blood"). Hargitay and Field are perennial nominees, so it'd be surprising to see either of them missing from the next category lineup. Nearly all Emmy gurus believed Paquin would reap a nom last year, especially since the Oscar champ ("The Piano") has been nommed by the TV academy in the past ("Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee") and this Emmy category had just been expanded from five nominees to six. But Paquin got skunked, probably because of voters' bias against vampire fare. (Sarah Michelle Gellar was never nommed for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer.")

The Good Wife Juliana Margulies Glenn Close Damages TV news

It's interesting that Boomer and Rob agree on the addition of Jones, who's been snubbed by Emmy voters in the past despite being nominated in the lead race at the Golden Globes. To boost Jones' odds, costar Elisabeth Moss (nommed last year) graciously just dropped down to supporting.

Rob and Boomer also agree on who's out front to win. They both rank Close first to prevail in this category for a third year in a row (Close also won an Emmy in 1995 for appearing in TV flick "Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story") while ranking Margulies in second place.

Check out Boomer's and Rob's other early predix in these races: lead drama actor, best drama series, and best comedy series.


BEST DRAMA ACTRESS: ROB'S PREDIX
1. Glenn Close ("Damages")
2. Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife")
3. Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer")
4. Sally Field ("Brothers & Sisters")
5. January Jones ("Mad Men")
6. Anna Paquin ("True Blood")

Alternates: Jeanne Tripplehorn ("Big Love"), Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order: SVU")

ROB'S COMMENTARY: I am pretty comfortable with this lineup, with question marks on January Jones (only because she has failed at the last two attempts, and last year she was almost seen as a fait accompli) and Anna Paquin, who might capitalize on the white-hot fever pitch buzz for "True Blood" at the moment.

Jeanne Tripplehorn might upset, although she wasn't given as much to do this time around as last season (when she was snubbed). Typically, however, we might see the return of old faithfuls like Mariska Hargitay or even Holly Hunter.

Are 'Damages,' Glenn Close now doomed at the Emmys?

April 6, 2010 |  9:54 am

"Damages" has been nominated for 14 Emmys, including two as best drama series, a breakthrough for FX network. Two of its four wins went to Glenn Close as best drama actress (her role is undefeated in the category) plus best supporting (Zeljko Ivanek) actor and casting.

Glenn close emmys damages fx news

But how will news that the series has been axed by FX affect its upcoming Emmy prospects? There's some hope that the critically hailed series will be rescued by DirecTV, but it's slight. If "Damages" is truly doomed, will Emmy voters rally behind it — or flee? Below are some views of our forum posters. See more here.


Peckypecka: "Julianna Marguiles can kiss her Emmy goodbye then. Emmy voters will give it to Glenn Close because it will be their last opportunity."

Atypical: "It's sad to see this happen to such a quality show. FX can go back to the Emmy doldrums now. The cast and characters deserved a proper send-off and now they won't get it."

G.Penn: "Bummer. I hope this doesn't hurt its chances as an emmy contender this year."

Billiance inmorbid: "Its relentless intrigue never translated into real quality. For me, the show's first season worked because it seemed like a really subtle satire of crime-thiller pulp fiction …. The show has since been a dawdling, cold, convoluted mess. This cancellation needed the happen. The ratings and the quality just wasn't there."

thedemonhog: "Next year's drama races are going to be fun to predict with 'Lost' and 'Damages' out of series, directing and supporting actor, the former out of writing, the latter out of lead and supporting actress and '24' gone as well likely from lead actor, supporting actress and directing. Can you imagine predicting this year's supporting actor race without the four heavy contenders from 'Lost' and 'Damages'? Also, this year's Emmys just got a lot more interesting. It was thinking that Julianna Margulies would win, but this is suddenly Glenn Close's last chance for this show, so that race is more interesting."
