Our Nominees: Best Television Series -Musical or Comedy

Atlanta. A Princeton dropout returns home to Atlanta to try to salvage his life by managing his rapper cousin’s career.  This may be a conventional premise for a comedy, but that is not Atlanta, which airs on FX.  There are no jokes with a laugh track, no tidy problem solved at the end of an episode.  It is the story of a young man struggling to find his footing and constantly wondering how he got where he is.  Told with drama and joy and humanity and sometimes despair, leavened by humor, the show strives to give the viewer an authentic sense of black life.  Donald Glover, also a nominee, explained to us how he came to create the show because “I felt the way the world was, it felt very weird, like a lot of the rules that we followed just felt weird.  So it started from a place of like, how do I show how weird things seem to happen to me every day.”Black-ish. The series, which airs on ABC, and its two stars, Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, all won nominations for the Globes. They play middle-class black parents who worry that their children do not understand or respect their heritage. Parenting and relationships are universal experiences shown through the lens of this particular family, but while still a sit-com, the show has not shied away from topics like Black Lives Matter and police brutality towards minorities.  “We are not trying to please any one core,” Anderson told us.  “We are trying to be true to ourselves.  The authenticity with which these stories are told resonates with the people.”Mozart In The Jungle. Season three of the multi-nominated and two-time Golden Globe winning series takes its hero, the passionate and chaotic maestro Rodrigo de Souza (Gael Garcia Bernal) to Venice, where work with a bona-fide diva (Monica Belucci) and assorted musical and romantic shenanigans await him. “It is wonderful.  It is a show that gives us so much pleasure to do”, Gael told us. “We went to Venice, to the land of opera in a way. So many operas premiered there for the first time, and working with Monica there in the world of opera and Placido Domingo as well, it is a dream come true even for Rodrigo.  It was a dream come true for me as well.”Transparent. Jill Soloway told us this about creating her groundbreaking show, “My own parent came out as trans some years ago.  I think, when I look back at it, I was trying to make the world safer for my parent to walk out the front door.”  The series is a Globes nominee yet again, along with its star Jeffrey Tambor, who has three consecutive nominations, one for every season, and won in 2015 for his portrayal of Maura Pfefferman, who started life as Mort, and came out as transgender to his rather unlikeable children.  The effect that announcement had on the family dynamics are explored in moving and humorous ways.  The show is in its third season and has been picked up for a fourth by Amazon, which credits Transparent for being its breakthrough show.Veep. The second nomination for the HBO show; the fifth consecutive one for perennial nominee Julia Louis-Dreyfus.中文介绍请看这里
