For Your Consideration: The 2015 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series!

March 04, 2015

With the Chainsaw Award voting still in session, FANGORIA believes that every nominee deserves a fair shot at the award in question. Yet when it comes to performances, the objective nature of cinema really takes a hold of the voter: fans of one kind of particular horror may disregard a contender altogether if they believe their project to be not their “type of horror.” Nevertheless, FANGORIA wants to shine a light on these nominees to give voters a better understanding of what makes their performances stand out within the genre this year.

Of course, there are a fair share of contenders who unfortunately didn’t make the cut in 2014. Michelle Monaghan, although fantastic in her performance, was a victim of underwriting in TRUE DETECTIVE, which cost her a potential nod in this category. The same goes for the marvelous Olivia Cooke in BATES MOTEL, whose role as Norman’s perpetually ill love interest was far too underused among the second season’s varied subplots. Angela Bassett was also straight-up great on AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW, but unfortunately, her flamboyant performance lacked that special something to make it Chainsaw Award worthy. And while Season Five has given the most multi-dimensional version of Danai Gurira’s Michonne on THE WALKING DEAD, the character is still too stoic and predictable that Gurira’s excellent performance can’t break through the writer’s glass ceiling.

So without further ado, here are your FANGORIA Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series…

Gillian Anderson, HANNIBAL
Madeleine Martin, HEMLOCK GROVE
Melissa McBride, THE WALKING DEAD
The obvious fan favorite among this year’s nominees, Melissa McBride has really delivered in Season 5 as Carol, a character many thought would be gone from the series altogether after Season 4. But McBride has earned her praise hand over fist, as her committed and physical performance improves both the writing and acting of any scene she shares. Furthermore, McBride has completely sold her transformation as a character from victimized wife to seasoned survivor, and is easily one of the most compassionate performances among the massive cast.
Billie Piper, PENNY DREADFUL
Deborah Ann Woll, TRUE BLOOD

‘The Walking Dead’ Director Greg Nicotero Talks That Funny Porch Scene Between Daryl And Carol

March 04, 2015

“The Walking Dead” director Greg Nicotero revealed that Norman Reedus’ “You look ridiculous!” line in last Sunday’s episode was actually an ad-lib.

“The Walking Dead” actor Norman Reedus revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly — published last month — that Daryl would have funny one-liners in the remaining episodes of the show’s Season 5. And in last Sunday’s episode, titled “Remember,” viewers have finally heard one of those much anticipated lines.

After Carol (Melissa McBride) ditched her badass persona in favor of a Stepford-esque housewife during her one-on-one interview with Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh), she stepped out of their group’s house dressed in khakis and a cardigan sweater. As she walked down the sidewalk to go to her new job in Alexandria, Norman yelled, “You look ridiculous!”

Greg Nicotero, who directed the episode, told Entertainment Weekly that Reedus’ line was actually an ad-lib. “When I did the cut, I was like, I’m leaving that in because that is exactly what Daryl would say,” he told the outlet. “And I don’t know if it made it in to the episode or not, but at one point Carol goes, ‘Thank you!’ as she’s walking away.

The 51-year-old SFX and make-up wizard further discussed the scene in an interview with Yahoo TV, saying, “When we shot that scene, we all stood there in shock and looked at Melissa, and like… that’s a tricky thing to pull off, that transformation of a character.”

“We’re so accustomed to spending years watching all of these people dirty, sweaty, covered in blood. [So] when Melissa stepped out the first time, we all sort of [started] laughing,” Nicotero explained. “Even Melissa was like, ‘This is so silly. How are we going to pull this off?'”

Nicotero continued, “When we did the first couple of takes, Norman was just giggling and laughing at how ludicrous this whole idea of Carol dressing up as a soccer mom was. Every time I watch that scene, and especially the way Norman looks up at her and then looks back down, he’s like ‘Pfft.’ He does that great thing. Norman always does.”

“I love Norman and Melissa, and they’re both such genuine performers that just adding that little flair takes it to such a great place,” he said.

“The Walking Dead’s” next episode titled “Forget” airs Sunday, March 8, at 9:00 p.m. on AMC.
