Emmys 2019 slugfest: Who’s out front in the Movie/Mini lead acting races? Michelle Williams, Amy Adams, Jharrel Jerome, Jared Harris or… [Watch]
Is Michelle Williams a lock to win her first Emmy for “Fosse/Verdon”? Gold Derby contributing editor Luca Giliberti certainly thinks so. “Once ‘Fosse/Verdon’ got 17 nominations, I immediately moved her into my number one position,” he explains. It certainly helps that everyone praising the FX limited series singled out “how great she was as Gwen Verdon, and how she inhabited that role seamlessly.” Giliberti recently teamed up with fellow editors Riley Chow and myself to suss out the lead acting races in the Movie/Mini categories. Watch the full video slugfest above.

Prior to nominations, Oscar-winner Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) looked like a shoo-in to clinch her second TV Academy prize for “Escape at Dannemora,” which brought her Golden Globe, SAG and Critics Choice victories (she previously won an Emmy for “Medium” in 2005 and scored an additional bid this year

Emmy predictions: ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’ has a four-peat on lock

Emmy predictions: ‘Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’ has a four-peat on lock
There are not that many sure things on Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards, but one of them will be in Best Variety Talk Series, where “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” is expected to triumph for the fourth straight year.

“Last Week Tonight” leads our predictions with 10/3 odds, while “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” is quite a few paces behind at 4/1. On its fifth nomination, “Last Week Tonight” has only lost this category once, in 2015 — the first year of the category’s existence after Best Variety Series was split into talk and sketch — to the final season of “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

Counting wins for Best Variety Series, “Daily Show” holds the record with 11, while “Late Show with David Letterman” is in second with six. “Last Week” was already in third, but would extend its count to four wins over “The Colbert Report’s” two victories.

One Emmy, Three Months Pregnant: Rachel Bloom Wins & Makes Announcement at Creative Arts Ceremony
Rachel Bloom was a good sport on the red carpet before the Creative Arts Emmys, taking off her shoes to get comfortable and chatting up reporters even though she was minutes from dashing to perform the opening number for the show. Her positive attitude was rewarded with an Emmy for outstanding music and lyrics for her CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, shared with Jack Dolgen and Adam Schlesinger. It was Golden Globe winner Bloom’s maiden Emmy; it came for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s final season.

“This is my first Emmy, I’m so happy, it’s really cool,” Rachel gushed backstage. “I’m so happy to be winning with these guys (Schlesinger and Dolgen), with my brothers.”

Backstage, she also dropped in a surprise Emmy announcement, which could explain her going barefoot on the red carpet: “I’m pregnant, so that’s what’s next for me. Three months pregnant.”

Flight of the Egot: Bret McKenzie could get one step closer to the grand slam if he wins songwriting Emmy this weekend
The comedy music duo Flight of the Conchords — New Zealanders Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie — have been gradually racking up kudos for more than a decade, but Egot is around the corner for one of them. They won a Grammy together for Best Comedy Album, and then McKenzie won an Oscar for his original song “Man or Muppet” from the 2011 “The Muppets” movie. Now they’re up for an Emmy at this weekend’s Creative Arts Awards, so if they’re finally awarded by the television academy, McKenzie will be three-quarters of the way to the showbiz grand slam.

The Conchords are nominated for Best Music and Lyrics for writing the song “Father and Son” from their HBO special “Live in London.” But this isn’t the first time they’re trying to win the favor of the television academy — far from it. Their series “Flight of the Conchords” ran
