    Nothing Limited About These Series: Our Final Sprint to the 2021 Emmys

    Nothing Limited About These Series: Our Final Sprint to the 2021 Emmys

    It’s our last predictions podcast before next weekend’s 2021 Primetime Emmy Awards. This week, AD TV’s Emmy expert Jalal Haddad joins us once more for a closer look at the 2021 Emmy Limited Series categories. Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit largely dominated the TV Limited Series awards scene since premiering last fall. It also fared very well on the first night of the 2021 Creative Arts Emmy Awards with 7 (relatively) unexpected wins. But does The Queen’s Gambit have the strength to go all the way, or was the series only a crafts play for its impeccable design elements? Will Mare of Easttown, which won a surprising Production Design Emmy, hold true to HBO’s long-standing tradition of Limited Series dominance? Or is Disney+’s WandaVision a potential threat?

    We dive into the Limited Series races after a quick overview of where the Emmy race stands following the first night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

    As always, we also talk about the media we’re most looking forward to in our Flash Forward segment.

    It’s Time for Much Drama: Our Final Sprint to the 2021 Emmys

    It’s Time for Much Drama: Our Final Sprint to the 2021 Emmys

    We are rejoined by AD TV’s Emmy expert Jalal Haddad for a closer look at the 2021 Emmy Drama categories. Netflix’s The Crown largely dominated the TV Drama awards scene since premiering last fall. And rightly so. Season four of the Emmy-winning series arguably emerges as its most entertaining. It introduces the Charles and Diana drama as well as Gillian Anderson’s brilliant take on Margaret Thatcher. It also received a record number of acting nominations for the series, managing nominations in every available acting race — three in Supporting Actress in a Drama Series alone. But will those nominations translate into actual wins? If not, then what else steps into the winner’s circle. That’s the main topic for this week’s deep dive into the 2021 Emmy Drama races.

    As always, we also talk about the media we’re most looking forward to in our Flash Forward segment.

    Breaking Down the Comedy Races: Our Final Sprint to the 2021 Emmys

    This week, the Water Cooler Podcast gang is joined by AD TV’s Emmy expert Jalal Haddad to look closely at the 2021 Emmy Comedy categories. Sure, nearly all signs point to a very good night for AppleTV+’s Ted Lasso, but what other series could possibly upset? Are there certain categories that point to how much of a race this really is? We give our current predictions in the Comedy races and look at potential upsets as we head into the home stretch.

    As always, we also talk about the media we’re most looking forward to in our Flash Forward segment.

    Podcast: How Casting Directors John Papsidera and Beth Bowling Allowed ‘The Flight Attendant’ to Soar with its Ensemble

    Podcast: How Casting Directors John Papsidera and Beth Bowling Allowed ‘The Flight Attendant’ to Soar with its Ensemble

    The Flight Attendant became an immediate sensation because of its crackling writing and swift direction. We should not forget, however, how impeccably cast the HBO Max series is. Casting directors John Papsidera and Beth Bowling were excited to dive into a series that allows its actors to portray a huge array of emotions and situations

    Every performer associated with the show subverts your expectations. Kaley Cuoco has never been better as a woman who didn’t realize how deep her own problems run. We fell in love with Rosie Perez because of her no-nonsense attitude and her bigger than life persona, but her Megan is lonely and desperate for a meaningful connection. Michiel Huisman is given the herculean task of playing a character that lives on the subconscious of our heroine.

    The writing on the page of a script can sing on its own, but a carefully crafted ensemble breathes life into a new series. If anyone on The Flight Attendant didn’t vibe with the playful, tricky tone, they would stick out like a sore thumb. It is one of the best casts of the season.
