You think it’s already a weird world and this happens.
Barry Levinson‘s brilliant film, “The Survivor,” starring Ben Foster LOST at the Creative Arts Emmys tonight. It was nominated for Oustanding TV Movie of 2021-22.
The winner? “Chip n Dale: Rescue Rangers,” a hybrid animated film for Disney Plus voiced by Andy Samberg and John Mulaney.
Yes, this really happened, “The Survivor” was originally intended for theatrical release. But then the pandemic happened and it moved to HBO.
These two endeavors should never, ever have been in the same category for anything. “The Survivor” is a work of art. “Chip n Dale” is a goof from the Lonely Planet group.
Also at Sunday’s second night Creative Arts Emmys: Nathan Lane finally won his Emmy, for guest starring as Teddy Dimas in the comedy, “Only Murders in the Building.” Another Broadway vet, Laurie Metcalf, won Best Guest Actress in a Comedy for her work in “Hacks.”
Dramatic guest star winners were Lee You-Mi, Best Actress, “Squid Game”; and Colman Domingo, Best Actor, “Euphoria.”
