can a strong ending boost a show’s emmy chances?

Emmy voters are suckers for a good ending. How else to explain Schitt’s Creek going from zero Emmy wins to unstoppable juggernaut for its final season? Strike that. Emmy voters are suckers for any ending. How else to explain Game of Thrones winning outstanding drama series for a season that I’ve never heard a fellow human being defend on any level other than, “The dragons were still cool.” Perhaps that’s part of why the limited series category once again will be this year’s most competitive Emmy race. Close-ended longform storytelling has been TV’s pinnacle for a while now, and a big part of the reason is that the stories are, well, close-ended. Theoretically, the thing that should define a limited series is the beginning, middle and end of it all, unless you’re previous category…

examining our world, chapter by chapter

DOCUMENTARY SERIES ALLEN VS. FARROW HBO Oscar nominees Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering zeroed in on the 1992 accusation of sexual abuse against Woody Allen by his daughter with Mia Farrow, Dylan Farrow. The project, which landed the Farrows’ cooperation but not Allen’s, features never-before-released footage of Dylan describing what happened shortly after it allegedly occurred. The series earned big ratings and an 82 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. CITY SO REAL Nat Geo Two-time Oscar nominee Steve James directed this portrait of the Windy City he calls home. Its first four episodes premiered at Sundance in 2020 and center on the 2019 mayoral election to succeed Rahm Emanuel; a fifth, shot amid the pandemic and racial tensions after the police killing of George Floyd, was added in time for the series’ TV debut in October.

‘he is a symbol of america himself’

“There’s the moment when Sam [Anthony Mackie] is talking to Isaiah Bradley [Carl Lumbly], the first Black Captain America. Sam has to try to convince himself to be disillusioned of the reality of what America is to Black people, then still try to reckon with his place here. He is a superhero. He is an Avenger. He has put himself on the line. And he is a symbol of America himself.… He is facing what America did to Isaiah, and is still defending Steve [Chris Evans], but knowing what Isaiah said is true. In the last episode, he sees Isaiah again, now that Sam has taken on this mantle of Captain America. Black Americans feel that thing of, ‘Well, this place has wronged us. How do you shill for a…

the falcon and the winter soldier fans, assemble!

DIEDRICH BADER APRIL 16 THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER is an incredibly deep look into the violence of American imperialism and our active legacy of systemic racism It’s both crazily entertaining and truly thoughtful ASHLEY NICOLE BLACK MARCH 19 Wow. I’m really gonna transfer all my Wandavision energy over to Falcon and the Winter Soldier, aren’t I? Love that for me. JOE HILL APRIL 23 I’m not going to claim #FalconAndWinterSoldier is perfect … But it was beautifully written and it had guts: it dared to take on some difficult ideas about race and history, superheroes and symbols.

‘no one has ever found me as funny as marty does’

Fran Lebowitz is a brilliant writer, thinker and talker. A sardonic wit in the vein of Dorothy Parker — despite writer’s block, which has prevented her from producing new written material for 40 years, she regularly churns out gems on the speaker circuit and during TV appearances. She is now, at 70, as associated with New York as just about anyone. She also is the subject of Pretend It’s a City, a new Netflix documentary series directed by Martin Scorsese that follows Public Speaking, a 2010 Scorsese documentary feature about her. During a recent episode of THR’s Awards Chatter podcast, she reflected on her life, career and docuseries. Where were you born, and what did your parents do? I was born and grew up in Morristown, New Jersey, which is a small…
