This week, the Cooler Gang look to the recent guild and critics awards to predict future success for the 2019 comedy Emmy races. Plus, we cover Serenity, the DGAs and everything but the actual Super Bowl football game.
With a host of guild and year-end critics award shows behind us, it’s time to take an Emmy pulse. We have four months left in the Emmy eligibility window. During those four months, we’ll see such major titles as Game of Thrones, Veep, Fosse/Verdon and potentially The Crown and The Handmaid’s Tale unveiled. But we have a lot of great television behind us already. This week, we look at the 2019 Comedy Emmy races and see what the guild and critics wins tell us. Our joint conversation helps update the Emmy Tracker, which returns for the 2019 season after Golden Globe and SAG ceremonies.
But first, Joey saw the universally reviled Serenity starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Was it really that bad? Then, the DGA announced their 2019 awards in film and television. We’ll review the winners and what that says about the 2019 Oscars and Emmys. Finally, we talk about the Super Bowl. Well more so the halftime show and commercials than the actual game itself.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
