Emmy episode analysis: ‘Black-ish’ star Anthony Anderson channels Prince in ‘Purple Rain’

Emmy episode analysis: ‘Black-ish’ star Anthony Anderson channels Prince in ‘Purple Rain’
Anthony Anderson is nominated in the Best Comedy Actor category at the Emmys for the fifth straight year for his role as Dre Johnson on “Black-ish.” Facing off against the likes of incumbent winner Bill Hader of “Barry” and Golden Globe winner Michael Douglas of “The Kominsky Method,” Anderson has submitted his sitcom’s 100th episode, “Purple Rain,” for judging consideration.

Written by co-executive producer Peter Saji and directed by Charles Stone III in his television comedy debut, “Purple Rain” is a tribute to the music of Prince, complete with music video reenactments that earned costumers Michelle Cole and Devon Patterson a repeat Best Contemporary Costumes nomination. Let us take a closer look at the submission.

SEEOur interview with ‘Black-ish’ costume designer Michelle Cole

Pros

Anderson has submitted slapstick and “very special episodes” over the years; he demonstrates further versatility by dancing and lip-syncing in “Purple Rain” to the 1980s songs “Erotic City” and “Kiss.

Can Ben Whishaw, Michael Douglas and others win Emmys for non-nominated series?

Can Ben Whishaw, Michael Douglas and others win Emmys for non-nominated series?
It can be difficult to predict Emmy winners in the acting categories, but one correlation we’ve seen over the years is how often we see actors win for shows that are nominated for Best Series. Similar to the Oscars and how your chances increase if you’re competing for a Best Picture-nominated film, the Emmys liking a show enough to nominate it for Best Series tends to have a trickle-down effect. In fact, last year, only one person won a lead or supporting acting category at the Emmys for a program that did not have a corresponding series nomination — Regina King for “Seven Seconds” in Best Limited Series/Movie Actress. The question now becomes whether any actors from a non-nominated series could defy the odds at this year’s Emmys.

The biggest possibility of this going down would be in Best Comedy Actor. That’s because three of the

So not ‘Marvelous’: Rachel Brosnahan is the least likely acting champ to defend their Emmy crown, fans say

So not ‘Marvelous’: Rachel Brosnahan is the least likely acting champ to defend their Emmy crown, fans say
Sorry, Rachel Brosnahan, but we’ve got some not-so ‘Marvelous’ news: 44 percent of our readers believe you are the least likely reigning Emmy champ to defend their crown.

The ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star is one of five 2018 regular series acting winners who could go back to back, but while her road to the Best Comedy Actress Emmy last year was bump-free, she has a lot more roadblocks this year. For one, six-time champ Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) is back, looking to go 7 for 7 for the HBO satire. Brosnahan and Louis-Dreyfus have never competed against each other at any major awards show, so there’s no data at all. Jld is the favorite to repeat in our combined odds, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”) in second and Brosnahan in third. Catherine O’Hara (“Schitt’s Creek”), Natasha Lyonne (“Russian Doll”) and Christina Applegate (“Dead to Me”) round out the six. Of note: Brosnahan

Emmy episode analysis: Ted Danson (‘The Good Place’) is devilishly funny as a demon with a heart of gold
It just wouldn’t be an Emmy race without Ted Danson. The two-time champion earned his 17th career nomination for playing an afterlife demon with a heart of gold on “The Good Place,” for which he previously contended last year. Prior to that, he won two trophies (1990 and 1993) out of 11 bids for “Cheers” and competed three more times for “Damages” and once for the 1984 television movie “Something About Amelia.”

For his Emmy submission, Danson has chosen the third season episode of Season 3, “The Worst Possible Use of Free Will.” In this installment, Michael (Danson) shows Eleanor (Kristen Bell) her romantic memories with Chidi (William Jackson Harper), confessing he has often failed to predict her behavior. He admits their experiment to place the gang back on Earth in an attempt to rework the afterlife is pointless if everything is predetermined, so he sends them to Canada to find “a blueprint for humanity.

Two-time Oscar winner Michael Douglas made a triumphant return to the small screen with “The Kominsky Method,” his first episodic television series since “The Streets of San Francisco” in 1972-76. The role of Sandy Kominsky, an aging acting coach who enjoyed a brief brush with fame, earned him an Emmy nomination in Best Comedy Actor. He’s now a six-time nominee, having won for his leading performance in the TV movie “Behind the Candelabra” (2013) and competed three times for “The Streets of San Francisco” (1974-76) and once more for a guest turn on “Will & Grace” (2002). Additionally, he contended at SAG and the Critics Choice awards for the Netflix comedy.

Ted Danson is aiming to achieve an incredibly rare feat in the Best Comedy Actor Emmy category

Ted Danson is aiming to achieve an incredibly rare feat in the Best Comedy Actor Emmy category
Ted Danson is in a league of his own in the Best Comedy Actor Emmy category, having extended his own record to 13 nominations this year with a second straight bid for “The Good Place.” If he manages to take home the prize, he’d join even more rarified air as one of three men to have won the award for multiple shows.

The only two men to have to have been honored here for different shows are Richard Mulligan, who triumphed for “Soap” in 1980 and “Empty Nest” in 1989, and Michael J. Fox, who three-peated for “Family Ties” from 1986-88 and scored a record-tying fourth win for “Spin City” in 2000. All of the other 13 multiple Best Comedy Actor champs prevailed for one respective show, including Danson. He has two Emmys for “Cheers,” winning in 1990 and ’93, and was nominated for the entirety of the sitcom’s 11-season run. He returned to the

Which defending acting Emmy champ is the least likely to repeat?

Which defending acting Emmy champ is the least likely to repeat?
Of the eight regular acting categories at the Emmys, three will definitely see new winners this year as drama lead champs Matthew Rhys (“The Americans”) and Claire Foy (“The Foy”) and drama supporting actress winner Thandie Newton (“Westworld”) are all gone for one reason or another, the former two for good. That leaves five categories in which we could have successful title defenses. But who’s the most susceptible to a loss?

Rachel Brosnahan

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” was the toast of the Emmys last year, and with Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) out of the way, Brosnahan collected her first Emmy on her first shot. In fact, Brosnahan has never lost a major award for “Maisel,” claiming an Emmy, two Golden Globes, two Critics’ Choice Awards and one Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Comedy Actress. But her Emmy title defense will be much tougher with Jld back and looking to

Leslie Jones To Host ‘Supermarket Sweep’ Reboot For Fremantle With Multiple Networks Pursuing

Deadline can reveal that one of these projects is Supermarket Sweep, a reboot of the classic TV game show that Jones will be hosting and executive producing.

I hear the list includes ABC, NBC, Fox and Netflix.

ABC has a potent lineup of classic game show revivals where Supermarket Sweep with actress-comedian Jones would fit in nicely, including Match Game, hosted by fellow SNL-er Alec Baldwin, and a couple hosted by actor-comedians, including Celebrity Family Feud with Steve Harvey and To Tell the Truthsoon hosted by Anthony Anderson.
