This is an interesting point. Wouldn't TP more likely compete as a limited series, given that it's sounding like a self-contained story with no anticipated future seasons? it's technically a third season, but it's temporally so far removed from the original -- and ongoing series are frequently nominated in the limited series category (for instance, both seasons of 'Fargo,' even though the two seasons shared several characters).

I'm not sure if there's any max time cap on the limited series category (18 hours doesn't seem particularly limited), but I was unable to find any reference to one (the minimum is 150 minutes).

I'm sure 18 hours will be considered a limited series. I think limited refers to a self-contained story that is told within a single season. But that's an interesting point regarding the notion of it being a third season...but I still think it will just be considered in the limited series category since it's been so long and this will be its own thing.

Didn't see it but Miguel Ferrer was on the list.

http://www.oscars.org/about/memoriam

Looking at Frost's imdb page it looks like he acted nearly exclusively on TV only. There's a few minor credits for films, but I doubt they would have been enough to justify a mention. His distinguished TV career should prompt a mention at the Emmy's though.


I watched the show and I don't recall either being mentioned. Sometimes they hold them over for the following year, but in the case of David Bowie, who died in January 2016, the Oscars featured him during the 2016 ceremony along with the actors who died in 2015. Bowie was not featured yesterday even though he should have been since he died in 2016.

One can only hope but as Lynch states, you never know what the audience or the critics are going to like from one year to the next.

Are people expecting emmys and other awards for S3? Its hard for me to picture. I know S1 had many nominations, but it was mostly ignored and then the response to FWWM was venomous. I just have no clue how S3 is going to go over with critics, audiences and even fans.

I think something like some nomination for Kyle MaLachlan as actor and David Lynch as director (on the award ceremonies with that kind of categories) could be expected and probably without a win, but I do not excpect a Stranger Things hype around this season of Twin Peaks. I think it will deserve a lot more than it will get, concerning audience numbers, worldwide buzz and awards but I do not expect much. I do expect weird, negative judgements about the story, tempo and tone from an overall "not hardcore fanbase"-audience though.

I believe bailiff Byrd on judge Judy is wearing the owl/turquoise ring. Fell a victim.

Had they made this five years ago, when miniseries were still on something of downswing, then it would be a near-lock for awards recognition. In those days, all you really needed to do was exist and have some recognizable names. Today, competition has gotten stiff enough that they'll have to get some legitimate critical acclaim and have some pop culture impact to get noticed.

Having said that, they'll still probably have to really faceplant for Lynch not to get nominated.

I think at least a handful of nods for different categories depending on what the show does and what really works with the larger audience and the industry/critics. If it's great even for the non-fans it's gonna be loved by the industry that still fondly remembers something out of it. That and if it builds any momentum over 18 eps showtime will push for it. If Badalamenti and Lynch hit it out of the park they'll get nods. Same for any actors. 18 consecutive eps are the most they've written, but Emmys look at individual EPS so if the premiere is rock solid that could work. It won't be this year tho for many. It'll be September 2018 :P probably the biggest obstacle it has for noms.

Just my feeling but, I think you're underestimating. It's going to be huge.
