WE Любовь TV: Strange Emmy news for local shows "One дерево Hill," "Eastbound & Down," "Little Britain USA"
A peek at this year's Emmy ballot revealed some surprises about TV series filmed in the Wilmington area, including "One дерево Hill," "Little Britain USA" and "Eastbound & Down."
Now, every actor on TV isn't automatically put on the ballot. It costs a little money, and it's up to the actors (or their publicists или agents или networks) to Отправить their names.
Also, while some guidelines are in place about eligibility, it's ultimately up to an actor whether he или she is entered, say, as a lead или supporting player. Interestingly, Sarah Chalke of "Scrubs" is listed as a supporting actress this year, while her ensemble co-star Judy Reyes is Отправлено in the lead category. Sometimes this has to do with the storylines actors felt best showed their talents. Supporting candidates Отправить multiple episodes for consideration but lead candidates usually just Отправить one.
Последнее rule changes let actors in variety shows (like "Saturday Night Live") Отправить themselves as a series supporting player (instead of individual achievement in a music/variety show). But that has led to some strange submissions. Tracey Ullman, who is pretty much the only person on screen in her "State of the Union" Showtime series, is Отправлено in the comedy supporting actress category. "Little Britain USA" co-star David Walliams also is Отправлено in the supporting actor category, though his screen time clearly makes him еще of a lead, along with co-star Matt Lucas. Lucas didn't Отправить himself of "Little Britain" at all, choosing instead to Отправить himself for his supporting role in Comedy Central's "Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire." It's an odd choice, especially because "Little Britain" probably has a slightly higher Профиль with voters, if only because it aired on HBO.
As for "One дерево Hill," none of the main five (Chad Michael Murray, Hilarie Burton, Bethany Joy Galeotti, James Lafferty или Sophia Bush) were submitted, but singer Kate Voegele was. Her name shows up on the supporting actress ballot.
The only other "One дерево Hill" name on the ballot is James фургон, ван Der Beek, who is Отправлено for his guest appearance on "Hill". He's not the only former "Dawson's Creek" звезда on the ballot. Katie Holmes is there for her Пение and dancing guest turn on "Eli Stone," and Joshua Jackson is on the Список as a lead actor in a drama series candidate for "Fringe."
The locally made Показать with the most actors on the ballot is "Eastbound & Down." Every regular cast member, including lead actor Danny McBride and supporting players Katy Mixon, Ben Best and Andrew Daly, are on the ballot, as are guest stars Will Ferrell, Craig Robinson and Gina Gershon.
Of all these actors, Ferrell is probably a lock for a nomination for playing slick car dealer Ashley Schaeffer on "Eastbound." Depending on how well-received "Eastbound" was in Hollywood, McBride is a possibility, too. "Little Britain USA" might never have gotten the buzz it needed to stand out from the pack. And, it's doubtful any of the former "Dawson's Creek" kids will be nominated, though my money would be on Holmes, who was her old charming self as a mystery woman connected to Eli. And that dance number wasn't bad, either.
In the Письмо categories, "One дерево Hill" Отправлено the episode "Letting Go," which aired March 30 (Peyton secretly prepares her Друзья for life without her, while Lucas tries to console his troubled nephew by sharing his own childhood refuge...). "Eastbound & Down" Отправлено its first and fourth episodes (though there is so much ad-libbing on that show, I'm not sure how you'd judge the writing). And "Little Britain USA" Отправлено itself for Outstanding Письмо For A Variety, Музыка или Comedy Series.
For directing, "One дерево Hill" Отправлено its 1940s episode and "Eastbound" Отправлено episodes one, four and five. "Little Britain USA" is in the Outstanding Directing For A Variety, Музыка или Comedy Series category.
The Emmy nominations will be announced July 16
