Will Patrick Stewart (‘Star Trek’) earn his 2nd SAG Award nomination as Captain Picard 26 years after his 1st?

Published

“Star Trek: Picard” earned five Emmy nominations this year, winning for its prosthetic makeup, but alas, leading man Patrick Stewart didn’t earn a corresponding bid for Best Drama Actor. The good news is that he has more chances for recognition during the fall and winter awards season. And it could be especially good news at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which were the first and only industry peer group to single out Stewart for his iconic role as Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Will they do it again?

Stewart was nominated at the very first SAG Awards, which were held in February 1995. That nomination was for the very last season of “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” which ended its seven-season run in May of 1994. But even though “TNG” was nominated for Best Drama Series at the 1994 Emmys and the show won 18 Emmys total over the course of its run, none of its actors were ever singled out for recognition by the television academy.

The SAG Awards embraced him though, nominating him against Tom Skerritt (“Picket Fences”), Dennis Franz (“NYPD Blue”) and “Chicago Hope” duo Hector Elizondo and Mandy Patinkin (Franz won the award). Stewart earned two more SAG nominations after that, in 2000 for his roles as Ebeneezer Scrooge in a TV movie adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” and in 2011 for playing the title role in a TV version of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.”

2021 will be a lot different than 1995 was, however. Back then television awards were dominated by the broadcast networks with cable only just starting to make inroads. Online streaming wasn’t even a concept. Nowadays there’s a lot more programming and therefore a lot more competition, especially with only one category for male dramatic actors (lead and supporting actors compete against each other).

But the door is wide open this year since only one of last year’s nominees is eligible to return: Sterling K. Brown (“This is Us”). The reigning champ, Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones“) is no longer eligible since his show ended its run in 2019. Billy Crudup and Steve Carell (“The Morning Show”) and David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) are out as well since their shows won’t have any new episodes in this eligibility year. Will that give Stewart the opening he needs to earn a bookend to his first “Star Trek” SAG nomination?

Radhika Apte needs no introduction to Kollywood fans after her appearance as Superstar Rajinikanth’s wife in ‘Kabali’ directed by Pa Ranjith.  The intense actress impressed with her performance of a meek girl to a mother of a grown-up and especially her reunion scene with Rajini took the audience on an emotional ride.

Radhika is happily married to her British boyfriend Benedict Taylor who is a singer and she shuttles between Mumbai and London to balance her personal and professional life.

Radhika Apte in her most recent interaction with Vikranth Massey on social media from London has admitted that she does not believe in the institution of marriage.  When asked why she got married the talented performer replied that it is easier for married people to get a British visa and that’s why she and her man opted for it in 2012.

Radhika is currently chilling with Taylor in their London home during the lockdown and will soon start filming her next English film ‘Noor Inayat Khan’ in which she plays a spy based on a true story.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
