Much as how The Wheel of Time was the result of Jeff Bezos really, really wanting Amazon Prime Video to have its own Game of Thrones, December’s original film offering Being the Ricardos seems the answer to his request that an Amazon-produced film bring home a Best Actress Oscar.

This quasi-biopic about the marriage between Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez as it intersected with their rise to media mogul as the stars of I Love Lucy certainly seems poised to take home all the awards: Its writer/director is Aaron Sorkin (a four-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter), who earned six Oscar nods last year for his Netflix film The Trial of the Chicago 7; it’s about Hollywood (Hollywood’s favorite subject); it’s a period piece (classy!); and it has a cast filled with beautiful, Oscar-winning people, including Javier Bardem and Nicole Kidman as the title couple.

Now, I know what you are thinking: Nicole Kidman looks and sounds nothing like Lucy. (You are only thinking this because you are old, probably; has anyone under 40 ever actually watched I Love Lucy? It’s not like TV exists anymore.) But that hasn’t stopped many an actress (or actor) for taking home an award in the past—see, recently: Zellweger, Renee as Garland, Judy—so I still think she’s got a shot.

Amazon is also premiering a slew of original TV series content this month, including the sixth and final season of The Expanse (Dec. 10), based on the 10-book novel series by James S.A. Corey. For years my fellow geeks have been telling me this is one of the best sci-fi series ever, so I should probably watch it, huh? (Despite having read five of the books, I stalled out midway through the first season.)

Harlem (Dec. 3) is a new comedy about a group of young, Black singles in NYC that seems to be rushing in to fill the void soon to be left by HBO’s Insecure; the show is from Tracy Oliver, the writer of Girls Trip, and the trailer looks pretty promising:

And if all those Hallmark holiday movies put you in the mood for more love stories, Amazon Prime Video will soon premiere With Love (Dec. 17), a new “rom-com series” from Gloria Calderón Kellett (Netflix’s One Day at a Time).

And speaking of holiday movies, I can’t track down any specific details about Christmas Is Cancelled (Dec. 17), but I really hope it’s a parody about the non-existent “War on Christmas,” and it stars James Woods, only he doesn’t know the movie is a joke. Probably not though. (Maybe Christmas said something racist on Twitter?)
