all the (emmy) awards


What a night! I was honestly a bit nervous and excited (well seeing that I was rooting for Wander’s nominations). So here are my overall thoughts.

Best Animated TV/Broadcast Production for Children: ADVENTURE TIME

Best Directing for a TV/Broadcast Production: PEARL by Patrick Osborne

Best Character Design for a TV/Broadcast Production: TROLLHUNTERS - Victor Maldonado, Alfredo Torres and Jules Rigolle


Ouch! Well, so much for trying to sway more on Wander since it’s still cancelled. Well, I guess Disney doesn’t want to bring it back just because it lost all of the Annies.

I don’t think it’s that over, Wander fans. Remember, just because we lost doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. It’s alright that it lost to these three other noteworthy shows that do have much hard work like ours.

Trollhunters getting a few wins seemed a first for a Netflix series (well okay it’s made by DreamWorks Animation, and Anton Yelchin’s death did build its own support system), plus Pearl’s Directing win was pretty obvious since they thought he had much bigger creative juices in exploring different formats including Google Spotlight Stories. And as for Adventure Time, I guess animators and artists liked the more experimental episodes nowadays since it had a stop-motion bit that felt funny and well-crafted (correct me if I’m wrong). So congrats to them, and be sure to thank them and support their works too!

And the MOST important thing to also remember: Disney doesn’t care whether their shows or films win an award or not (but at least a win does boast extra recognition, hence why they focus more on their films like Zootopia and Moana than their animated shows). And Wander Over Yonder NOT winning any of them DOESN’T affect their thoughts on whether it’s still noteworthy to revive based on the wins. They can only decide by the influence of its MONEY, REVENUES, RATINGS, SOCIAL MEDIA BUZZ, and CHANGE OF MANAGMENT if any exec is interested in Wander and the creator as well.

Let’s not forget some things here:

The Annie Awards (as well as many Award Shows) are just a popularity contest, not a big factor in the studios and execs’ thoughts on what to do with these works that get many wins or have none at all. They do however use the wins to boast publicity and morale to the studio and company, but not necessarily on whether to bring it back or not. The money is what the companies expect the most above everyone else. Whether the show makes lots of revenue, they would pay attention to secondary support (the fans, the buzz, etc.). But if not, they know they got other shows to fill in unless something of a financial/big support buzz shows up through mails and petitions plus purchases that they may reconsider a bit.

So Wanderers, don’t let these loses turn you down from continuing to #SaveWOY. And please DON’T send inappropriate comments/messages to the winning artists/animators and shows just because they beat Wander. They’re in the same boat in making animated shows just like the Wander crew as they are into other shows in the meantime. Instead, give them a kudos to their hard work and also support them if you want to.

So let’s move on from the Annies, enjoy the other parts that you may have had a blast seeing one of your favorite shows or films win at least an Annie. Or that their nominations are actually much more than just a waiting list.

Emmys 2017: Lead Actor, Limited Series or Movie — Our 6 Dream Nominees
While not nearly as crowded as this year’s bonkers Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie competition, the Lead Actor portion of the race is nothing to sniff at.
By Team TVLine


WHY HE DESERVES A NOD: The normally composed sleuth was all over the emotional map in Season 4’s second installment, giving Cumberbatch a chance to sink his teeth into quite a few meaty scenes. We saw Sherlock strung out on heroin and (gasp!) sporting a few days of stubble, and Cumberbatch had a ball once Sherlock snapped into manic case-solving mode. He even found time for a poignant heart-to-heart with pal John Watson, confirming that Cumberbatch’s turn belongs in the pantheon of all-time great Holmes portrayals.

Riiight, how about this one!! No. It tested really well. Never in a million years. ………. Ta daaaaaa! MAYBE ITS THE WAY SHE WALKED

5 wild Emmy nominations we’d love to see

Best drama: iZombie (CW)

If you judge iZombie based on the word “zombie” alone, you’re missing out on one of the most smartly written and surprising series on the air. Yes, it’s about a sentient zombie who eats brains, has visions and solves murders, but it’s also a relationship drama, a mythology-driven sci-fi show and — especially in its just-ended third season — a political allegory about fearing people we consider “others,” making it seem more relevant than ever.
