Listen: Emmy, La La Land, Atlanta discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour
"I mean that that's the interesting thing about this Emmys is that people thought Atlanta was going when people thought Handmaid's tale was gonna win. Well, I didn't happen berry one Mazel one not game of thrones John. This argument falls apart. Except well, except Matthew, Matthew REEs, that's amazing, and long overdue, and really though man can we just take a minute to be sad that carry Russell, Dan gets join her man on stage with her best actress EMMY like she should've gotten? Yeah, that that was that was surprising. Also. We should have a moment of mourning for the fact that clarify, wins, freaking EMMY for Queen. Elizabeth goes on stage and dozens, incurable. The moment was made for and she bifteck and I think it was really sad to me also to see as much as I agree that I would have cheered if it had been carry Russell and I have nothing against clarify. I just saw Clervoy in a movie. It's she's a good actress, right? No problem with Clervoy, but I also would have been thrilled with that had been Sandro and and I think a show that to me had the inventiveness and freshness and actress, talents, dynamism of perform of killing eve to me for that show to go completely unrecognized, particularly when what we're talking about, look, I loved Barry. I was really happy about Bill Hader. I think he's a good actor, but a lot of these wound up being a show full of white people that one as opposed to issue that was a little more diverse that didn't win. So if you're talking about, you know, game of thrones versus Handmaid's tale or berry versus Atlanta, you know, whatever you think about those shows. It did wind up being a very white Emmys center, a lost the acting category, but she won awards banter Herbett with Semper. But he was one of the standout bits of better. I mean, there were some better than average bender and there was also some stuff that drop dead. But I mean she was a star. Yeah, we were supposed to come out here and read the winner. But instead I've decided to speak from the heart. What did you. I don't know. I was in the moment. I got overwhelmed. The winner is like auto engine and have done that. She would just making up. No, I don't think we can do that. The winner is LA La Land. No, don't say that. What's interesting to me about the Emmys is that once you're nominated, you submit a sample of your work now because I had to put together a radio preview of the Emmys. I had to go through killing eve and try to find scenes that would showcase how good, Sandra. Oh, was in them role and it was tough. She's a great actress, but she didn't get a lot of standout scenes where you could see her work as an actress, sorta kinda shown off. And so what we don't know is we don't know what the EMMY voters actually saw an order to make their right terminations. All we know is how we felt about the performances after we saw the whole thing. I wonder if one thing when I see something like clear for win in that category, I think. To myself, man, you know, I know how hard it was for me to find a scene that showed off with Sandra was doing because it was so subtle in really the better role didn't even get nominated Jody Comber so so they were already at a disadvantage. And I think EMMY might have just seen it as you know, it was an honor for you to get nominated. I think that's a common problem. I think there are a lot of shows not just performances, but also shows where the writing what really makes the writing brilliant is the way all the pieces fit together. And so when you're trying to nominate an individual episode, it's not that you can't show the strength of a show like Atlanta in an individual episode, but it's one of the reasons why people win a lot for pilots I think is that they tend to be somewhat self contained so you can see the genius of the writing.."
