What will & should win Best Comedy at the Emmys?

"If Veep wins I won’t complain. Really smart series that ended on a perfect note." - Lucky

"Russian Doll is probably the most affecting show I watched over the last year. It's brilliant and I love it - but as you say, its format and its tone is not at all friendly to it winning this. I" - ScottC

"Fleabag: Exhilarating, high wire stuff. Any episode is a masterclass of writing." -Arkaan

"Grandma" Poster

And look who got quoted!

It's my first movie poster quote somehow though tbh my dream has never been movie posters but getting quoted on FYC Oscar ads. This is close enough since Lily Tomlin is so super in that movie. When they call a movie a 'star vehicle' they don't usually mean it this literally but Lily could drive that old car straight to an Oscar nomination. We shall see. 

Grandma opens on August 21st from Sony Pictures Classics

My birthday!!! They couldn't have picked a better release date. Also, congrats on the quote!

WOO HOO! Congrats, Nathaniel! Can't wait to see this.

Congratulations. If she's nominated you can give yourself a pat on the back.

Congratulations! That must feel so good. We're so proud!

Lily, Judy and Laverne with above the title billing is very, very promising.

Mike -- well, Lily is the headline... it has the structure of a road movie even though it's not really a road movie so everyone but Lily & granddaughter is basically small roles. But they're fun.

Well done Nathaniel ! Let's start the Oscar campaign now!

How incredible! Congratulations!

I so wish to see Lily not only nominated, but win that Oscar. Sure, she could end up like Bruce Dern, but I believe she's more of a legend so if she's nominated and people realize she's Oscar-less they might let her complete her EGOT. If someone deserves that, it's Lily.

And of course, congrats to you. I'm really rooting for you to be quoted on an FYC ad. If anyone deserves that, it's you. ;)

Congrats Nathaniel for getting your review published on a movie poster. What a thrill.

And I am guessing Lily has a strong chance of a Globe - Comedy/Musical nomination and possibly even an Oscar nomination.


Must feel great turning 21. Nudge nudge wink wink.

I was thrilled for you when I saw the poster, congrats and hopefully you'll be Lily's luck charm!

July 12, 2015 | Unregistered CommenterBraz

Congrats!!! That is awesome.

Awesome, congrats!

CONGRATULATIONS! So exciting. And on such a good movie with a STAR FEMALE performance! Perfect!

July 13, 2015 | Unregistered Commenterbillylbil

Why do I get the feeling this is only the first poster quote of many? No one deserves it more.
