(Some Guy)   Apparently the Golden Globes and the Emmys have VASTLY different ideas about what constitutes "good television"   (affotd.com) divider line

The golden globes are the easiest to buy a win. There is only 93 voters and they are open to accepting bribes.

So, it is the "Hollywood Foreign Press"... https://en.wikipedia.org/wi​ki/Hollywoo​d_Foreign_Press_Association ... it is awards for (mainly) U.S. programming voted on by foreigners.  Based on that, you are not going to get accolades that seem to line up with what the U.S. audience and critics would agree on.   It is like having a swath of U.S. sports fans vote on who the best players in the UEFA Champions League are.

"I really like this show and it only won one golden globe so obviously the golden globes are corrupt"

What a load of crap.

Here's a question the author apparently didn't even bother to ask - do the two awards have an equivalent number of categories?

Sure, GoT has won 47 Emmys and only one Globe - how many Emmys are given out a year versus how many Globes?

Honestly, does *anybody* care about awards shows?

People watch what they like, and shows are funded based on how many people are watching. Awards have nothing to do with either, really.

Taking a minute or two to actually read the linked article before you jerk off in the thread really isn't all that difficult, you know...

"So let's get something straight before we dive into this. Every show is going to show a huge discrepancy between Emmy nominations and Golden Globe nominations. That's because there are a lot (lot) (LOT) of Emmy categories! The Golden Globes only give out prizes for Best Comedy, Best Drama, Best Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Best Actor and Actress for each of those categories..."

Right - the acknowledge it up front, and then spend the rest of the article ignoring the reason and  whining about it anyway.

GoT has only been nominated 7 times! Travesty! They should have created additional categories so it could be nominated more!

Here's a question the author apparently didn't even bother to ask - do the two awards have an equivalent number of categories?


From the article: "So let's get something straight before we dive into this. Every show is going to show a huge discrepancy between Emmy nominations and Golden Globe nominations. That's because there are a lot (lot) (LOT) of Emmy categories! The Golden Globes only give out prizes for Best Comedy, Best Drama, Best Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, Best Actor and Actress for each of those categories, with a single Best Supporting Actor and Actress award that combines all three categories into a single prize. That's a total of 10 television categories. In 2018, there were 124 Emmysawards handed out. And one of them, Outstanding Individual in Animation, had sixwinners. There were only six nominees in the category! So yes, it's super easy to get an Emmy nomination, apparently."

Your point might have better been... he DID bother to ask the question, and his answer was "The emmys gives out a bunch more awards"... and then wrote the article based on raw numbers anyway.

Although I don't really buy the "lots more awards" comparison here anyway... if you are looking at just the "main awards" (Best Comedy/Drama for show, actor, actress, supporting actor, actress), they are pretty much equivalent in count.  Nobody "cares" that a show got an emmy for "Best Sound Grip", and that the Globes doesn't give one out.

In my defense, the formatting of the site made it very difficult to read, and I mostly skimmed until they actually started naming the things they were talking about

I'll agree there... the worst thing about the article is it was too long and written haphazardly, along with an unappealing site layout.

realmolo: Honestly, does *anybody* care about awards shows?

People watch what they like, and shows are funded based on how many people are watching. Awards have nothing to do with either, really.


So, in your mind, when a show receives three or four consecutive Emmy nominations for a category like Best Drama or Best Actress - Comedy, it has NO EFFECT on increasing the show's ratings, streaming revenue, or Blu-ray sales?

There's always been a suspicion that Golden Globes nominations are based on who they can get to come to their awards show, not on the quality of the performance or the show/movie.  A prime example is a couple of years ago when they nominated Lady Gaga for her performance in American Horror Story: Dumpster Fire

FTFA: Curb Your Enthusiasm: 2 Emmys on 43 Nominations  (and 1 Golden Globe on 5 Nominations)

Curb won 20% of all GG nominations, but only 4.6% of Emmy noms. 

Clearly this means the Golden Globes loves Curb more than the Emmys do.

/see, i can make up useless stats, too

The Golden Globes is the most ridiculous of the awards. The HFPA is a tiny group; even if there's no out-and-out bribery, the number of voters are so small that it's not hard to manipulate them even without bribery.
 
2019-03-20 02:55:53 PM  
Probably one of the widest gaps is that Better Call Saul gets some noms (but no wins) from the Emmys, and the GG act like they don't exist other than noms for Bob.

And even Peter Dinkledge admitted that Banks should have won his Emmy in 2015...

Exactly.  There was a whole story a decade ago about how the movie studios would fly the members of the HFP around the world for 'junkets' and give them gifts over and over.  Somewhere around 5 years ago or so, they tried to put a stop to it (the HFP that is) but their members complained loudly about it and it is sort of unwritten thing now that the gifts can't be TOO extravagant but there is still a LOT of shady shiat going on with that group.
