Any company that has a service of streaming of videos would like to see their productions being nominated for awards. With Apple, of course, no different. Well, we can say that she got it quite quickly with the Apple TV +!
Critics Choice Awards
The actor Billy crudup, in ?The Morning Show?, was nominated for ?Best Supporting Actor? in a dramatic series of Critics Choice Awards. He competes with big names like Asante Blackk (?This Is Us?; NBC), Asia Kate Dillon (Billions; Showtime), Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"; HBO), Justin Hartley (?This Is Us?), Delroy Lindo (?The Good Fight?; CBS All Access) and Tim Blake Nelson (Watchmen; HBO).
Having such an indication is not easy. Netflix, for example, took a few good years to get its first. Now, in 2019, she got no less than 61 nominations for her productions (14 of them only for "The Irlands," Martin Scorsese's new movie); Amazon Prime Video got 14, while Hulu got 7.
But Apple didn't stop by, no. As reported to Variety, ?The Morning Show? was also indicated to Golden Globe in two categories: ?Best Actress Performance in TV Series? in dramatic series (by the acting of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon) and ?Best TV Series? for drama
Other nominees are: Olivia Colman (The crown), Jodie Eating (Killing eve) and Nicole Kidman (Big little lies). Already Apple TV + production compete with Big little lies (HBO), The crown (Netflix), Killing eve (BBC America) and Succession (HBO)
Not bad for the year of a service release, isn't it?
Problems in streaming
But not only good things live the Apple TV +. According to reports on the Apple Discussion Board and Reddit, users are complaining that the content of the service is not being reproduced on Dolby Vision HDR on Apple TV 4K connected to 4K televisions. The reader Luiz Felipe Tavares also fixed the problem in late November and alerted us via Twitter.
Apparently the problem affects both new weekly releases and those already available on the platform.
Some users have commented that this could be a bug in Apple TV's dynamic range matching feature. However, it is most likely that Apple has even removed the support while solving some possible problem.
It is noteworthy that the removal does not affect all Apple TV + series / movies, at least not for all users. There are reports that the documentary ?The Elephant Mother?as well as the series Dickinson and ?Snoopy in Space?, still play with Dolby Vision HDR support.
Cast of ?Dickinson? and Lisey?s Story
The most popular Apple TV + series got news for its second season: according to Variety, Finn jones ("Game of Thrones" and ?Iron Fist?) and Alexander Peak (Catch-22, A Most Violent Year and War Machine ?) joined production.
Jones will play Samuel Bowles, described as an energetic and magnificent newspaper editor; j Alexander playing Henry ?Ship? Shipley, who boarded the Dickinsons after leaving Amherst College.
Here's a new video promoting the production:
In another series Lisey?s Story, based on Stephen King's homonymous novel that has not yet made its debut, Sung kang joined the cast as Dan Beckman (a police officer assigned to oversee Lisey's house).
Finally, Apple published a new video to promote children's series. Helpsterswhich you see below:
