Gold Derby Editor Tom O’Neil’s 100% perfect, infallible, brilliant Emmy predictions

Gold Derby Editor Tom O’Neil’s 100% perfect, infallible, brilliant Emmy predictions
Pardon my braggadocio, but, hey, if you aim to give the Best Performance by an Emmy Pundit, you have to get all huffy or it’s no fun, right? You can see all of my Emmy predictions here. Explanations below. If you dare to disagree, post your comments below.

Best Comedy Series

A neck-and-neck horse race between “Atlanta” and “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” Out of our 27 Experts, 14 pick “Atlanta” and 13 say “Maisel.” Both have drawbacks. “Atlanta” isn’t the kind of knee-slapping gigglefest that usually wins here, while “Maisel” is a one-hour nominee in a category usually dominated by half-hour fare. Both programs scored three victories at the Creative Arts awards last weekend. I’m going with “Atlanta” because voters tend to hold back the comedy-series crown a bit. “Veep” didn’t win until its fourth turn at bat. Now “Atlanta,” in its second year, competes against newbie “Maisel,” so it probably has the edge.

‘The Good Place’: Will Ted Danson or Maya Rudolph win Emmys ahead of Season 3 premiere?
The highly anticipated Season 3 premiere of “The Good Place” debuts Thursday, September 27 on NBC, just 10 days after the 2018 Emmys are handed out. While the first season was skunked at the Emmys, Season 2 rebounded by claiming two acting nominations for Ted Danson (Best Comedy Actor) and Maya Rudolph (Best Comedy Guest Actress). Will either of them prevail and give some much-needed attention to this under-the-radar comedy series?

Danson plays architect Michael, who over the course of two seasons flip-flopped between being a trusted friend and a demonic villain.

Primetime Emmy Awards: Every host from the 21st Century, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert

  • Gold Derby
Hosts for the annual Emmy Awards ceremonies throughout the 21st Century have almost always been comedians. For the most part, they bring just the right tone of roasting the nominees and celebrating the previous TV season. With a four-way rotation of ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, the host selection also typically comes from that network’s stable of talent.

For the 2018 event, “Saturday Night Live” stars and “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che will host the 70th annual ceremony for NBC. It marks the first time a duo has presided over the ceremony since Jenna Elfman and David Hyde Pierce in 1999. That was last century! How will Jost and Che stack up against this century’s emcees? Let’s take a tour of the past 18 years in our photo gallery above of all the hosts, good and bad.

You won't be sorry. Anyway, today we've got the first trailer for Season 2 for you to watch and it looks wonderful.

“I Had a 40-Year Career That Was Mostly Just Riven with Existential Panic”: Two and a Half Men Co-Creator Lee Aronsohn on his Debut Doc, 40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie

Lee Aronsohn was a college student in the early 1970s when he discovered Magic Music, an acoustic band based in Boulder, Colorado that attracted a devoted following thanks to their beautiful harmonies, memorable lyrics and bohemian lifestyle. In spite of flirtations with a number of record labels, the group never took off — they never even released an album — and by 1975 they broke up. Forty years later, Aronsohn — now one of the most successful writer-producers in the history of sitcoms thanks to his work on Murphy Brown, The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, […]

Megan Mullally is more likely to win Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy than Laurie Metcalf, readers predict

Megan Mullally is more likely to win Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy than Laurie Metcalf, readers predict
If the Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy race came down to two former champs in revivals, Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) has a better shot of winning than Laurie Metcalf (“Roseanne”), our readers believe.

Mullally received 68 percent of the vote to 32 percent for Metcalf, which might be a bit surprising considering Metcalf’s banner year with an Oscar nomination and a Tony win. But Mullally, a two-time winner for “Will & Grace,” now has the second most nominations in the category at eight. She was the only main cast member to earn a nomination for the revival, which grabbed just five nominations.

Under the old tape system, Mullally might be a lock with her submission, “Rosario’s Quinceanera, in which her longtime maid Rosario (Shelley Morrison) dies. Mullally gets to be funny, sympathetic, and delivers a moving speech to Rosario’s casket.

Donald Glover would be first black performer to win multiple Best Comedy Actor Emmys

Donald Glover would be first black performer to win multiple Best Comedy Actor Emmys
Donald Glover is way out in front to defend his Best Comedy Actor Emmy for “Atlanta.” Should he go back-to-back, Glover would become the first black performer to win the category more than once.

Glover is only the second black Best Comedy Actor winner, following in Robert Guillaume‘s footsteps. Guillaume twice won for playing Benson DuBois on “Soap” (1979), in supporting, and “Benson” (1985), in lead, and was also the first black Best Comedy Supporting Actor champ. The late star prevailed in lead on his fifth and final nomination for “Benson,” so he never had a chance to defend his crown. And then it was 32 years before Glover triumphed, with nine unsuccessful bids in between, not counting Anthony Anderson’s nomination last year for “Black-ish.”

Charlie Sheen ‘Can Relate’ to Roseanne Barr’s ‘Tone of Absolute Despair’
Charlie Sheen “can relate” to Roseanne Barr’s “tone of absolute despair” in the weeks since her show was canceled by ABC, the once-disgraced actor said Monday.

Sheen, who was fired from the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men” after his erratic behavior and feud with creator Chuck Lorre came to a head in 2011, said in an Australian radio interview on Monday that he can empathize with Barr’s current situation.

“I can relate to that tone of absolute despair, because it’s not just about herself, it’s about the people that she knows she affected as well,” Sheen said. “What I hear in her voice, trying not to focus on the words but the emotion, is I hear the frustration, pain, there’s such a sadness there.”
