Lost | TV Guide Review: “There’s no question she earned a nomination”

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardAs we get closer to the …

Question: As we get closer to the announcement of the Emmy nominations, I am encouraged by all the positive buzz surrounding Elizabeth Mitchell. Her performance as Juliet on Lost this year was breathtaking and spellbinding, right up there on my list of TV’s top performances this year, along with James Gandolfini, America Ferrera and Alec Baldwin. Mitchell really helped revitalize a show I must admit I was beginning to lose faith in. With all the good buzz, do you think she has a real chance at a nomination and, hopefully, a win? I can’t think of another supporting actress on TV who gave such an exceptional performance.
Answer: This sort of thing is hard to predict. Can she break out of a large ensemble at a time when so many large ensembles are vying for attention? That’s the real question, and the dilemma. There’s no question she earned a nomination, if not an Emmy outright. I just wonder if her name is recognizable enough to make the cut with the nimrods doing the initial balloting. As you may be aware, several of us here rethought our opinions after Lost‘s stunning season finale, and now we wish we’d put Matthew Fox’s name on our Dream Emmy Ballot as well. I am very curious to see if Lost rebounds this year in the Emmy sweepstakes. (If there’s any justice, there ought to be lots of empty slots where 24 once ruled.)

Just One of the Others

While some actresses merely play “the girl next door”, and others try to embody it, Elizabeth Mitchell bends the term every which way to make it her own
by Elyse Glickman

TALL, BLONDE, BEAUTIFUL, born in Los Angeles and raised in Dallas. In short, Elizabeth Mitchell aptly fits the traditional description of the all-American girl. However, if she based her career and identity on that alone, she would be selling herself short.

Instead, Mitchell picks her roles and projects carefully, taking risks that no doubt challenge this ideal. Today, she’s best known as Juliet, one of the intimidating and mysterious “Others” on the worldwide cult hit Lost. A decade ago, she unwittingly bewitched a passionate Angelina Jolie and then had to confront her own sexuality in the award-winning cable television film Gia. In between, she’s wowed the Brits as Ioan Gruffudd’s love interest on BBC’s Man and Boy, time-travelled with Dennis Quaid in Frequency, co-starred with Rénée Zellweger in Neil La Bute’s edgy comedy Nurse Betty and took a lap on man channel ESPN opposite Barry Pepper in The Dale Earnhardt Story. But let’s just say she’s found herself, or, at least, a compelling side of herself, in Lost.

“My favourite role to date is Juliet,” Mitchell muses. “Every day and with every script, I feel a certain sense of gratitude that I have a great character and story to work. What I love most [about the show] is the writing and the people. Beyond that, it is wonderful to be excited about going to work every day, and having a very compelling and meaty story. Also, the writers have kept things very consistent in terms of the overall quality of the show and the character I play on the show. Each scene and each twist in the story really surprises me and keeps me on my toes and my skills sharp as an actress.”

Emmy Ballot: Elizabeth Mitchell For “One Of Us”

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardLast year LOST was famously snubbed at the Emmys in most of the major dramatic award categories.  Some blamed it on LOST outing itself with more straight sci-fi elements, others noted the unevenness of the season, most, however, blamed a new voting system that seemed to favor newcomers over consistency.   In the blogosphere, the debate raged that LOST’s descent into formula and the mishandling of major reveals validated its omission from the major characters, while stalwart fans were incredulous over the Emmy snub. With a redeeming third season behind it, many considering it the best season of LOST ever, the fan’s, as well as the creator’s, hopes are galvanized once again. We have some early word on what LOST producers may be submitting for Emmy consideration, and the selection looks diverse, and good.

LOST Review | “She’s the best thing to happen to that show since Season 1.”

Question: If you could pick one pair of costars from any show on television that you would say has the best on-screen chemistry, who would you pick and why? My choice, not to influence a great critic or anything, would be Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet and Matthew Fox as Jack on Lost.
Answer: From Lost, that’s a great choice. She’s the best thing to happen to that show since Season 1. (By the way, any discussion of the Lost finale in Ask Matt will have to wait until next Friday’s column, because of the holiday and other deadlines.)

Lost 3×20 | Ratings

Part of “Old Info And News”

ABC’s press department was glowing today over the overnight ratings data on LOST – The Man Behind the Curtain. The episode promised to give answers on an unparalleled level, telling us how Ben came to be in charge of the others, who the mysterious Jacob was that supposedly controlled him, what became of the Dharma Initiative, and much more. LOST fans reacted, of course, by tuning in. While failing to win its hour in total viewers, LOST still generated enough numbers in the right demos to give ABC something to toot their horn over.

On an official basis, the data plays out like this:
