Now that we know “Game of Thrones” is taking next year off at the Emmy Awards, it’s a safe bet that “Outlander” will be one of the shows to benefit the most from all those open slots. “Game of Thrones” earned a whopping 23 Emmy nominations this year, more than any other show. “Outlander,” meanwhile, only scored a pair of bids: Best Production Design and Best Costumes. Will “Game of Thrones’” absence be “Outlander’s” gain?
Last year Starz’s “Outlander” broke into the Emmy derby with a nomination for Best Music Composition. It was predicted to do much better for Season 2 as it’s an established hit with strong critical acclaim. However, it failed to make the cut on nominations morning thanks in no small part to “Game of Thrones.” This HBO behemoth dominated many of the tech races at the Emmys, taking slots from other deserving fantasy/sci-fi shows, namely “Outlander.”
It’s worth noting that while “Game of Thrones” has six acting nominations (see below), it does not contend in the lead categories. So “Outlander” stars Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan would not benefit from the absence of “Game of Thrones” at the Emmys. However, supporting player Tobias Menzies could easily take one of the open slots next year left behind by Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington.
Here are the 23 “Game of Thrones” nominations for the 2016 Emmys:
Best Drama Series
Best Supporting Actor (Peter Dinklage)
Best Supporting Actor (Kit Harington)
Best Supporting Actress (Emilia Clarke)
Best Supporting Actress (Lena Headey)
Best Supporting Actress (Maisie Williams)
Best Guest Actor (Max von Sydow, “The Door”)
Best Directing (Miguel Sapochnik, “Battle Of The Bastards”)
Best Directing (Jack Bender, “The Door”)
Best Writing (David Benioff & D.B. Weiss, “Battle Of The Bastards”)
Best Cinematography (“Home”)
Best Costumes (“The Winds Of Winter”)
Best Editing (“Battle Of The Bastards”)
Best Editing (“Oathbreaker”)
Best Hairstyling (“The Door”)
Best Makeup, Non-Prosthetic (“Battle Of The Bastards”)
Best Makeup, Prosthetic (“The Door”)
Best Production Design (“Blood Of My Blood,” “The Broken Man,” “No One”)
Best Sound Editing (“The Door”)
Best Sound Mixing (“Battle Of The Bastards”)
Best Stunt Coordination
Best Visual Effects (“Battle Of The Bastards”)
A new report speculates the plot and scenes of the premiere episode of “Outlander” Season 3. The scenes include the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden and flashbacks of Claire and Frank.
The next season of the popular Starz TV show is based on Diana Gabaldon’s third book in the series titled “Voyager.” A report on Outlander Online speculates some of the scenes and events in the premiere episode, based on the book. The report believes that the episode will begin with battlefield of Culloden, where Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies) lies dead.
Jamie (Sam Heughan) is severally wounded and is barely alive. Later, a British Major, Lord Melton, arrives and announces that all the “traitors” are to be executed. One by one the Highlanders give their name and are taken out to be shot.
When it is Jamie’s turn, Lord Melton realises that this is Red Jamie who has a prince on his head. The young Scotsman is also the man who spared the life of Melton’s brother William Grey (Oscar Kennedy).
Although Jamie is supposed to die, he survives in the premiere episode of “Outlander” Season 3. Lord Melton sends the wounded warrior to Lallybroch, thinking that he will not be able to survive the journey. The British Major is, however, mistaken in his assessment.
In a flashback to 1940s Boston, there is tension between Frank (Tobias Menzies) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe). The two fight, but later reconcile. The report suggests that there could be a love making scene for the two characters; their first since Claire’s return.
The premiere episode of “Outlander” Season 3 could also have a scene of Brianna (Sophie Skelton) and Roger Wakefield (Richard Rankin) working together again. This time they may be seen researching about the legend of Leap O’ The Cask and the Dunbonnet, which Brianna believes is about Jamie.
Sam Heughan is most excited to see John Grey again in “Outlander” Season 3, the actor revealed while interacting with a fan recently. The young character, who was introduced in the second season, is expected to return as an older Lord John Grey next year and cross paths with the Frasers.
John Grey (Oscar Kennedy) is the 16 year old British soldier who went by the name William in the second season of the TV series. He was the boy that the Frasers tricked into revealing sensitive information about his army, with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) pretending to be a prisoner of the Highlanders.
In the next season, John Grey will appear as the Governor of Ardsmuir Prison, according to the books written by Diana Gabaldon. He will meet with Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) there, and the two will form an unexpected and shaky friendship. The character gains significance as the story progresses and is expected to be a recurring character starting with “Outlander” Season 3.
Co-executive Producer Maril Davis pointed out that the Scottish warrior is younger than Claire. The writers and producers were discussing how they wanted to approach the look of the character, but Davis teased that the viewers should expect something similar to what they did with Claire, in terms of her looking older. The producer said that most part of this aspect will be shown through acting.
“Outlander” Season 3 will be an adaptation of the novel “Voyager.” Davis teased that it will begin with Claire debating about whether she should go back in time and reunite with Jamie, and leave her daughter behind. The main characters will travel to Jamaica in the next season, and a lot of the story will take place on ships.
Starz president Chris Albrecht isn’t beating around the bush when it comes to the lack of Emmy love for critical and audience darlings like Outlander and Black Sails. Simply put, Albrecht says Starz simply doesn’t have enough money to launch a proper Emmy campaign.
“I don’t think we’ll ever break through with those people on those shows. I was part of the team that invented how to campaign for Emmy Awards,” Albrecht said during the Starz panel at the Television Critics Association fall previews on Monday. “Trust me, it’s not a level playing field. I spent years inside the TV Academy, working it. It took a lot of money, and there’s a certain amount of momentum that goes along with that.”
That’s not to say that Albrecht doesn’t believe his shows are worthy of awards. The production and writing on Starz’s original programming could stand up to any of the other premium and network cable shows. It’s the process that doesn’t allow for newcomers to have a fair share at the top prizes, especially in the current era of “Peak TV.”
“It’s a very distinct group of people, no matter how they try and expand their membership base,” Albrecht said of the Television Academy. “They should be finding a way to … have something that reflects this expansion, instead of [their process, which] by sheer numbers … ends up with a longer list of losers and the same number of winners.”
Albrecht says he’s confident that Starz will eventually stumble on a show that gets recognition the Academy, but it still won’t explain why they’ve been left out in the cold thus far.
“I know that people who work on these shows would like to see their names alongside their peers. There will be a show that comes along. We won’t know what one it is,” he said. “There won’t be a better reason [to nominate it over] Outlander or Survivor’s Remorse, it’ll just be a reason.”
Albrecht also said that his focus isn’t on awards at all, especially after Starz’s disappointing night at this year’s Golden Globes. (Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe and Tobias Menzies received acting nods, but neither pulled out the win.)
“Why do we go to the Globes? I love those people. They rarely let anyone go home empty-handed, but we went home empty-handed this year,” he said. “I was really surprised. I was like, ‘Wow, okay. What does this mean?’ This is all silly.”
Do you think shows like Outlander and Black Sails deserve Emmy recognition?
