70th Primetime Emmy Awards: Limited Series, Variety and Reality

I’m here and I’m ready.

Last year I was so unprepared! I watched the announcement of the nominations and then straight up forgot about the actual ceremony! But not this time!

I was at the beach and I had even written down my predictions (which were really spot on)!

Two years ago I divided my posts into programs, acting, supporting performances and writing and directing. But this year… It’s in genre category and colour coordinated!

And now let’s talking about Limited Series or Movies, Variety Shows and Reality Programs.



Outstanding Structured Reality Program

  • Antiques Roadshow (PBS)
  • Fixer Upper (HGTV)
  • Lip Sync Battle (Paramout Network)
  • Queer Eye (Netflix)
  • Shark Tank (ABC)

There is literally not doubt.

QUEER EYE.

It’s an amazing show, I’ve cried a thousand times, I love it and it is the best.

2017 Winner: Shark Tank (ABC)

My Winner: Queer Eye (Netflix)



Outstanding Writing For A Variety Series

  • Full Frontal With Samantha Bee (TBS)
  • Last Week Tonight With John Oliver (HBO)
  • Late Night With Seth Meyers (NBC)
  • Saturday Night Live (NBC)
  • The Late Show With Stephen Colbert (CBS)

MY FAVOURITE PEOPLE ARE ALL HERE!!!

I can’t choose. I can’t.

I feel like I would betray the others. Although I don’t watch Sam Bee every single week (I can’t seem to remember to check her YouTube channel and I feel like I am being anti-feminist. SHE IS (ALMOST) THE ONLY WOMAN ON LATE NIGHT!!!), her program is so important. She talks about so many important issues!

And I watch Seth and Stephen everyday. Literally every morning. And John Oliver every week. I love them.

And SNL is legendary.

I just can’t. I can’t.

2017 Winner: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver (HBO)

My Winner: All of them.



Outstanding Variety Talk Series

Can I switch James Corden for Seth Meyers?

I really really like James! His show is really funny and the segments are hilarious. I get it, it is the only show that doesn’t talk that much about politics. (Along with Jimmy Fallon). But I feel like Seth has had an amazing year with segments like “Jokes Seth can’t Tell”, “Amber’s minute of fury” and “Amber says WHAT?!”.

I’m sad their efforts and their amazing show will not get recognised. Love you Seth!

That being said, I love Stephen. He is my favourite. I looooooove him.

We all know it’s basically granted John Oliver will win. He and his team deserve it so much.

I’m glad “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” got nominated because he has been doing so great and I feel like he has found his voice.

I love these people.

2017 Winner: Last Week Tonight With John Oliver (HBO)

My Winner: John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Sam Bee, Trevor Noah and in my heart, Seth Meyers.



Outstanding Lead Actress In A Limited Series Or Movie

I heard Laura Dern was absolutely magnificent in it and even though I was not able to watch it before this post, I will definitely have to.

I know some of the actress and Sarah Paulson is always a guarantee.

2017 Winner: Nicole Kidman, “Big Little Lies”

My Winner: Laura Dern, “The Tale” (?)



Outstanding Lead Actor In A Limited Series Or Movie

I’ve only seen Darren Criss and Jeff Daniel‘s performances and I have to say they were both brilliant.

I know that if John Legend wins the category, he will be one of the very few people who have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony Awad (EGOT). Lin-Manuel Miranda would have almost done it last year if his Moana song had won at the Oscars.

2017 Winner: Riz Ahmed, “The Night Of”

My Winner: Darren Criss, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace”



Outstanding Limited Series

I’ve only seen “The Alienist” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” so I can’t actually have a proper opinion on this category. I’ve heard Genius is fantastic.

I just haven’t had the time and the will power to watch it. The same with “Godless“. I’m so sick of the Old West environment. Westworld made me reject the entire genre.

2017 Winner: Big Little Liars (HBO)

My Winner: I don’t know.



Here we go! First batch of predictions/reflections are in!

I didn’t want to make these posts too long and I tend to ramble.

Follow me on Twitter and in the next couple of day, you will be able to vote in the polls and let me know who YOU think should win!

Up next: Writing, Directing, Guest Actor and Guest Actress in a Comedy Show.

The Affair, 12 Monkeys, The Crown and Queer Eye – Tv Shows I’m Bringing With Me On Holiday – Part 2

You thought I was done?You thought I would only bring 4 shows on a 3-week-trip?P.L.E.A.S.E!!!! I’m a professional.In case you missed it, you can also read part 1!Here is the rest of my list of TV shows I’m bringing with me to the beach!


THE AFFAIR

https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMzY4NTQzMDY0N15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwODgwMjMyNTM@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,666,1000_AL_.jpgI’m not actually bringing it all with me because it’s still airing… I’ve been following the show since season 1 and it’s been a rollercoaster. I loooooved season 1. I thought it was so clever, sexy and intriguing.Starring Joshua Jackson, Dominic West, Ruth Wilson and Maura Tierney, the show is about a tumultuous affair that shakes up a small town. What I loved about it, was the different points of view. We see that an event is experienced in a completely different way depending on who is telling the story.I’ve actually reviewed the show back in 2016! You can read it here!

12 MONKEYS

12 Monkeys – Season 3

Season 4 is back, y’all!!! I am so excited and thankfully, they decided to make it a 4 weeks event so last Friday three episodes came out, this Friday another 3 will come out and so on!It’s been 4 seasons and I still don’t understand what is going on. Literally no clue. I’m sad the show is over but it would have been nonsensical to keep it going for more episodes. I just want James and Cassie to be happy… and for the universe not to collapse.


The Crown PosterTHE CROWN

I haven’t finished watching the second season of this Netflix show. I don’t want it to end. I don’t want to say goodbye to Claire Foy and Matt Smith. I love them too much.I only have two episodes left. I don’t want it to end!!! Also, if you want to check it out, my very first impression of the first episode of season 1!


QUEER EYE

Risultati immagini per queer eye season 2 posterIT’S BACK!!! Queer Eye is back and I live for this. It’s so queer and I am obsessed! I never saw the older version but this one is amazing. The Fab 5 are a group of gay men that try to improve straight people’s lives by remodelling their house, their habits, their wardrobe, their attitude and their self-care. And the stories!!!!! The stories are amazing! Even in a makeover show, they talk about the #BlackLivesMatter movement, coming out, accepting ourselves as we are, being more confident and so much more! I love the guys! Antoni, Jonathan, Bobby, Tan and Karamo are adorable, super hot, super fashionable and I want them to be best friends with me.


… I think this is it…These are the shows I am definitely taking with me to the beach. I’m also considering “The Handmaid’s Tale” because I’m still on ep 3 of season 1 and I HAVE TO watch it.Depiste this, have you got any recommendation for me? Are there any shows you think more people should watch? Let me know!xxxGeorgia
