SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

11.10 The Confidence Erosion

Regardless of our expectations of the genre, the best and most popular sitcoms tend to be those that evolve. This might in tiny, incremental ways or with huge strides like Monica and Chandler’s relationship on Friends, but, while these shows are comforting in their repetitiveness and reluctance to really challenge their audience, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be bold every so often.

The Confidence Erosion is an episode that attempts to address some big things in the universe of The Big Bang Theory. We know that it can’t stick permanently because of all the reasons mentioned above,

The Big Bang Theory: Season 11 Ratings

Fans don't have to worry whether The Big Bang Theory TV show will be cancelled too soon. Back in March of 2017, CBS renewed it through season 12. The Chuck Lorre - Bill Prady sitcom remains one of the highest-rated network TV shows on network television, even though its numbers have dropped over the years. Still, even the most successful TV shows have a shelf-life. As its price tag increases and the audience drifts away, will The Big Bang Theory be cancelled or renewed beyond seasons 11 and 12? Stay tuned. A CBS scripted comedy, The Big Bang Theory stars Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons, Mayim Bialik, Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch, Kunal Nayyar, and Kaley Cuoco.

Charlie Brown vs. Rudolph: Here’s Who Won This Year’s Battle of the Classic Christmas Specials — Ratings Watch

Charlie Brown vs. Rudolph: Here’s Who Won This Year’s Battle of the Classic Christmas Specials — Ratings Watch
Good grief! Christmas specials are in full swing, and the networks dusted off some of their biggest classics last week: ABC’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and CBS’ “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” In their inaugural 2017 runs, “Rudolph” (2.1 among adults 18-49) edged out “Charlie Brown” (1.8), giving a ratings edge to the reindeer with a very shiny nose.

“Rudolph,” which premiered in 1964, and “Charlie Brown,” which first bowed in 1965, are considered the key staples in a sea of primetime holiday specials, some of which have come and gone over the years. But both specials were overshadowed this year by a newcomer: “DreamWorks Trolls Holiday,” which averaged a 2.4 rating when it aired on Nov. 24, during the Thanksgiving weekend.

But there are plenty of caveats to all of this, since none of the specials actually faced off in the same time slot. “A Charlie Brown Christmas” performed respectably considering it aired in a tough Thursday 8 p.

It’s the mid-season finale, and Supernatural did not hold anything back.

This was a great way to go into a long break—with fans wanting more. Not only did we finally reunite Jack and the Winchesters, but the episode simply had beautiful cinematography. A lot of care was put into the visuals of this episode, so I’m going to share what I noticed.

Why Annihilation going straight to Netflix matters

Ryan Lambie Dec 8, 2017

Alex Garland’s next movie, Annihilation, will bypass cinemas altogether in the UK. A few thoughts on why that matters...

Only a few days ago, we placed Annihilation at the top of our most anticipated films of 2018 list. First, because it’s the next film from Alex Garland, the novelist and screenwriter who made a stunning feature debut with 2015’s Ex Machina - a taut, superbly-made sci-fi drama about the increasingly blurry area between human and sentient machine. Second, it’s a studio film that isn’t part of some huge multi-million dollar franchise - rather, it’s based on a Nebula-winning sci-fi novel by Jeff VanderMeer. And finally, just look at the cast: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Oscar Isaac. It has the hallmarks of a smart, potentially great genre film.
