  • Emmys for Sense8 this year?

    I found a single For Your Consideration disk on Ebay today. The episode is "Happy Fucking New Year". Somebody on Facebook says there's also a full set of DVDs FYC, also.

    Iit says: For your consideration in all categories including:
    - Outstanding Drama Series
    - Outstanding Supporting Actor (Onwumere, Reimelt, Silvestre, Smith, Mann, Andrews)
    - Outstanding Supporting Actress (Bae, Clayton, Desai, Middleton, Hannah)
    - Outstanding Director (Lana Wachowski)
    - Outstanding Writing (Wachowski and Straczynski)

    I suggested on FB that they include the hashtag #Emmys in all their tweeting for the show. Can't hurt, might call attention to the show to a Television Academy member or two.

      What does "Program: Sense8" mean? "Program" as in the "on the whole", or something else?

      You found them here: http://www.emmys.com/ballots/2017 ? I don't have the time to look for myself right now, but I will do later.

        It appears to be a blanket term and the Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Comedy, etc. lists are inside that category.

          Here is a nice article about the thread's subject: http://www.goldderby.com/article/201...ng-lead-actor/

          Same info, but here it is again:

          Best Drama Series

          Best Drama Actor
          Alfonso Herrera

          Best Drama Supporting Actor
          Naveen Andrews
          Terrence Mann
          Toby Onwumere
          Max Riemelt
          Miguel Angel Silvestre
          Brian J. Smith

          Best Drama Supporting Actress
          Doona Bae
          Jamie Clayton
          Tina Desai
          Daryl Hannah
          Tuppence Middleton

          Best Drama Directing
          “Isolated Above, Connected Below”

          Best Drama Writing
          “If All the World’s a Stage, Identity is Nothing But a Costume”

          Best Cinematography (Single-Camera Series, One Hour)
          “Obligate Mutualisms”

          Best Picture Editing (Drama, Single-Camera)
          “You Want a War?”

          Best Production Design (Narrative, Contemporary/Fantasy)
          “Happy F*cking New Year”

          Best Sound Editing (Series)
          “Obligate Mutualisms”

          Best Sound Mixing (Series, One Hour)
          “If All the World’s a Stage, Identity is Nothing But a Costume”
          It's funny that some viewers have been complaining about the "editing" (although I suppose it's more about pacing / what's included and what's not) of the final episode since before the series was canceled but it's the one that has been submitted for its editing.

          The other choices are very good. Herrera had plenty of great moments, starting from the Christmas special actually, "Isolated Above, Connected Below" is very strong directing-wise (Pride!, Riley/Mr. Hoy back and forth and Archipelago!), "If All the World’s a Stage, Identity is Nothing But a Costume" has good writing what with Capheus' speech and Lito's Hollywood/beach adventures. Production Design is certainly very strong on the Christmas Special, even if I didn't like the episode itself so much.

          Sound mixing and sound editing I have no comment to make, and Cinematography.. the whole show is so damn beautiful anyway, haha, but “Obligate Mutualisms” was a good choice because they shot in the museum with the real paintings.

            A lot of people don't understand that Herrera's nomination is for a different show. Of course the headline doesn't help that.

              He is for both Sense8 and The Exorcist, right? You are referring to calling him lead / having him separate than the other supporting ones, correct?

                That's...dumb. I hadn't noticed but yes, it looks like he's on the ballot twice for lead actor. Which he's most definitely not in Sense8!!]

                  Man, Netflix is NOT going to get any awards for communication!



                  And then



                  That chain of communication leaves a lot to be desired.

                    We got a nomination for cinematography. http://www.emmys.com/sites/default/f...-list-v1ry.pdf

                    Better than nothing. But Sense8 has to compete with mega-popular genre shows like Stranger Things and Westworld, or the more "serious" The Crown, or the unconventionally framed Mr. Robot to turn that nomination into a win... I wouldn't hold my breath.

                      Not Emmy related, but John Toll + award related: http://www.camerimage.pl/en/John-Tol...ent-Award.html

                      We are very proud to announce that John Toll, ASC, will be the recipient of Camerimage Lifetime Achievement Award during the upcoming 25th anniversary edition of the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography, which will be held in Bydgoszcz between 11th and 18th November 2017.


                      Still from "Sense8," photo from John Toll's private archive
                      Well deserved!

                      He is bound to do some interviews when he gets the award I believe, and perhaps he will give us an update on when the Special will start shooting (if he knows anything about it). Last time, he was the guy that first revealed when season 2 would start shooting!

                        Looks like The Handmaid's Tale won over Sense8.

                          Poor Toll, he deserved it so much. (Not that other shows and their cinematographers don't deserve an award, but given the challenges Toll and co face to shoot on location, he deserves it above everyone else).

                            Not an Emmy, but Sense8 and Charlene Rose, season 2's choreographer, have been nominated in the 7th annual World Choreography Awards, in the category of "Motion Picture". (The competition includes La La Land, which I haven't seen, but.. yeah..)

                            The awards show will take place October 23.

                              In what universe is Sense8 a motion picture?? They must have a very fluid definition. Good luck to her, though.
