After Bryce’s appearance in Black Mirror last October, very early Emmy buzz was a flutter (not to mention her SAG nomination earlier this year). Now that we’re a month away from the nominations, full predictions are being published and Bryce is headlining! There is very stiff competition this year (Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, and even Oprah(!) just to name a few.), BUT Bryce is receiving amazing coverage by both big and small publications. Variety listed the big name competition, but then heavily featured Bryce with a quoted interview. Also, a photo of Bryce in Black Mirror is usually the predominant image featured at the head of each prediction article. Exciting times!
Formal Emmy nominations will be announced on July 13!
May 31, 2017 — Emmy spotlight: Bryce Dallas Howard deserves ‘high ratings’ for ‘Nosedive’ episode of ‘Black Mirror’
Bryce Dallas Howard gives one of the strongest performances of her career in “Nosedive,” the first episode of Black Mirror’s third season.
Though Howard lost the [SAG] award to Sarah Paulson (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”), the attention from her acting peers certainly suggests she’s in the running at the upcoming Emmys.
Getting into Limited Series/Movie Actress could be a challenge for Howard with so many other talented stars in the mix, but her dominant performance in just 60 minutes of Black Mirror ranks her among the best of the year. In a world where Twitter followers and Instagram likes form the basis of success, Howard deserves “high ratings” at the Emmys for reflecting the dark future that may lie ahead of us.

June 1, 2017 — “Oscar Winners, Global Stars Compete in Packed Best Actress in a Limited Series/Movie Category
Bryce Dallas Howard won raves for playing a lonely, social media-charged singleton who is a little too obsessed with liking her frenemy’s wedding plans in “Nosedive,” the first episode of Netflix’s latest season of Black Mirror. Other than ensuring her friends will probably forever question whether to invite her to their nuptials, the episode also inspired conversations about society’s obsession with virtual approvals and the toxicity that can surround female friendships. Save for voicing a character in an episode of “Family Guy,” Howard has never done scripted TV before; she says she always refers to this segment of creator Charlie Brooker’s anthology show “as a movie.”
“What’s so appealing and intriguing about Black Mirror is that it’s perhaps the most ambitious kind of storytelling because every single [episode] is a different project, crew and location and story and actors and everything,” says the actress better known for film roles that are a mix of blockbusters (“Jurassic World,” “The Twilight Saga”) and Oscar contenders (“The Help”).
“I’ve acted in things that are one minute long and I’ve acted in things that should have been shorter, let’s just say that. This goes to show why a category like this is so important because it’s so inclusive and it includes different kinds of storytelling platforms and allows those kinds of stories to also be included with more mainstream projects.”
Does this mean she wants to do more TV? “Absolutely,” she says, pointing to the pedigree behind Black Mirror in director Joe Wright and writers Rashida Jones and Mike Schur as enticements.
She acknowledges that filming it required considerably less time than other series, but that “for anyone, a longer commitment has to feel right. My husband [actor Seth Gabel] only does television and our whole relationship he’s only done television. I’ve really seen the length of time that it really takes over and that sort of experience. It’s like going to college with a group of people and you want that to feel right the entire time.”
Specifically, she says she’d like to “generate something for me to be a part of” either via directing, producing or writing.
