    Team AD TV Praises the ‘Schitt’ Out of the 2020 Emmy Ceremony (Or Maybe Just the Winners)

    This week, the full staff of Awards Daily TV gathers around the virtual water cooler to rehash last night’s historic 2020 Emmy ceremony.

    We are almost ready to put the crazy 2020 Emmy season behind us. Canceled parties and FYC events plus delays in voting made the season feel even longer than it normally does. But before we say goodbye to the 2020 Emmy season, the full team of AD TV staffers regroups to say goodbye! We talk about what we loved, what we loathed, and what surprised us about the 2020 Emmy ceremony. Did Jimmy Kimmel and his team respond well to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic? How excited were we about the historic Schitt’s Creek comedy sweep? What were some of our favorite wins? Find out this and more as all of Team AD TV joins the Water Cooler!

    We wrap with each member of Team AD TV putting the final nail in the 2020 Emmy ceremony’s coffin with the AD TV Emmy Time Capsule. Each AD TV team member tosses in a prediction for the 2021 Emmy season. It’s always fun to see how wrong we really can be.

    Looking at ‘Lovecraft Country’ and the DNC ‘Round the Cooler

    Looking at ‘Lovecraft Country’ and the DNC ‘Round the Cooler

    The Water Cooler Gang takes a much-needed breather and catches up to HBO’s Lovecraft Country, the DNC, and more!

    We’re in the midst of the 2020 Emmy Phase 2 voting window, and frankly, we’re a little tired. So, this week, we’re just laying low and catching up on a potpourri of topics. First up, since it’s the midst of Phase 2, we’re offering up suggestions to voting members of the Television Academy. We offer things they need to catch up on before they vote. Next up, we talk about our reactions to the all virtual Democratic National Convention. Did the quarantined event work for us? What did we love? What did we long for? Did we even watch it? Finally, we jump into HBO’s latest drama series Lovecraft Country. Does the Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams social justice/horror mashup work for us? What aspects of the series can we count on for the 2021 Emmy season? Yes, we know. It’s ridiculously early.

    We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.

    On the Legendary and Emmy Nom’d Makeup and Hair in FX’s ‘Pose’

    On the Legendary and Emmy Nom’d Makeup and Hair in FX’s ‘Pose’

    Awards Daily’s Kevin Dillon talks to the Emmy-nominated makeup and hair team behind season two of FX’s Pose.

    Pose entered its second season on FX last June when the show jumped a few years ahead into 1990. I spoke with three different members of their makeup and hairstyling team who are all nominated for Emmys for their work on the season. The tone of the conversation with these three folks was bravery and collaboration. Each member of the team shared that folks behind the scenes like Ryan Murphy encouraged them to be upfront in their representation on screen.

    Sheri Berman Laurence is nominated for Outstanding Period And/Or Character Makeup (Non-Prosthetic) for the first episode of the season “Acting Up.” During the conversation, Sheri talked about her work with Angel and the research she did on fashion models of the time to elevate the style. She also talked about adding new layers to Blanca. She was becoming a manicurist and a businesswoman, and they wanted to elevate her style from adding fingernails to giving her better make-up.

    David Presto is nominated for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Limited Series, Movie Or Special for the episode “Love’s in Need of Love Today.” David’s episode centered on Pray Tell (Billy Porter) reacting poorly to his AZT treatment, and his prosthetic work was done in many of the fantasy sequences. He also talked about how he wanted to capture the truly authentic experience of what a person on AZT would look like during this experience.

    The collaboration was indeed key, and this culminated with the third participant in our conversation Barry Lee Moe who was nominated for Outstanding Period And/Or Character Hairstyling for his work in the episode “Work It.” A big chunk of this episode centered on Elektra and forming her new house. It also features the fantastic reveal she has at the ball with that incredibly elaborate hair. This along with Elektra’s constant make-up changes (which you may not notice) show these team members have worked hard to capture a very specific time period and highlight a world that is so important for the characters in Pose.

    The Almodóvar Series: 2004s ‘Bad Education’

    The Almodóvar Series: 2004s ‘Bad Education’

    The Water Cooler Gang continues their Most Iconic Directors series with a look at Pedro Almodóvar’s NC-17 rated Bad Education.

    This week, we continue the Almodóvar Series as part of our Most Iconic Directors series. This is, of course, our monthly look at the films and legacy of Spain’s Pedro Almodóvar. July’s title (yes, recorded in August – thanks Emmy nominations!) marks his second NC-17 rated film – Bad Education. The film also served as the first Spanish film to open the Cannes Film Festival. After giving Almodóvar his first Oscar for Original Screenplay, the Academy ignored Bad Education despite robust box office and critical acclaim. We take a look at the film with The Film Experience‘s Nathaniel Rogers. Is the NC-17 rating warranted today? Does the film stand up after 16 years?

    August’s entry will be an Almodóvar Penelope Cruz double feature: Volver and Broken Embraces. Adam Lubitow will join us for the conversation.

    But first, we continue our weekly therapy session, Corona(virus) Corner. Here, as always, we share what we’ve been watching since we’ve been sheltering at home.

    We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
