EW Picks 50 (5) Dark Horse Emmy Contenders



EW made a list of 50 shows/actors who will probably not be nominated for Emmys, but who they think should be in consideration. Some of their choices are absolutely ludicrous (Riverdale? I mean, I know you guys have lots of posts about it, but I haven't seen anyone here argue that it deserves Emmys), but some are sensible and correct. Here are a few of their better picks!

Best Comedy - BoJack Horseman



Not sure why BoJack keeps getting ignored by award shows. Maybe it's not taken seriously because it's animated, maybe it's because it doesn't fit neatly into a drama or comedy box, but it's easily one of the best shows on TV right now.

How 'Bao' director Domee Shi stayed true to her 'weird' idea and created a specifically Asian story


  • Domee Shi is the first woman to work on a Pixar short.

  • Shi used her own life growing up as a child of Chinese immigrants for the basis of the short; "Growing up I was that overprotected little dumpling for my Chinese mom. I was an only child living in Toronto with my parents, and they’ve always kind of watched over me and made sure I was safe — kept me really, really close. And I just wanted to explore that relationship between an overprotective parent and their child with a dumpling as a metaphor, as weird as that sounds."

  • Says it's very difficult to animate food for computers, one shot of dumpling making took two months to make.

  • Describes the scene where spoiler [Spoiler (click to open)]the mother eats the dumpling baby as "that primal feeling of just wanting to love something so much that you’re willing to destroy it so it won’t go away."
