Who’s Emmy whorthy on this show?
Based on the four episodes I’ve seen, Daniels gets to chew scenerey, Camp and Sarsgaard get to act, Rahim has a major co-lead role, and Baldwin and Stuhlbarg have little screentime. My personal favorite so far is Camp. I’m behind though so this could all change.April 28, 2018 at 8:54 pm #1202537074

It’s fitting. A meh design for a meh show.April 28, 2018 at 10:09 pm #1202537089
Jeff Daniels, Bill Camp, Peter Sarsgaard and Tahar Rahim probably will get a nomination. Stulhbarg have very limited screentime, i doubt he will get in.April 29, 2018 at 5:47 am #1202537147
So is it confirmed that Tahar Rahim is being fraudulently submitted in Supporting for his lead role? If so, I think he stands a better chance than Stuhlbarg who did nothing and was barely in it. In fact, I’m surprised Stuhlbarg even qualifies. Was he even in 5% of the whole thing?April 29, 2018 at 9:31 am #1202537240
Am I the only one who didn’t think Rahim was any good in this? I’d be shocked if he was nominated in either category. I think they’ll go for the more well known name and better performance with Sarsgaard if anyone is nominated at all. Or maybe Camp since he was nominated last year, I could see him having enough good will left over to get nominated againMay 7, 2018 at 8:09 pm #1202543087
Finished this ahead of my interview with the showrunner. They are only submitting the finale for writing. The show got better toward the end, but it was a struggle to get through the middle. The intercutting of archive footage did not work for me and the dialogue was forced at times. Jeff Daniels ended up being pretty good and I hope that he is nominated. Next best in show was Bill Camp, but I would not nominate him. Worst in show might have been Alec Baldwin, who looked especially bad opposite the real footage. Michael Stuhlbarg was in more than enough of the show to be in contention, but I thought that he was just playing Mr. Perlman instead of Richard Clarke. I think that the issue with Tahar Rahim, who should be in lead, is just that he is still learning English. I think that he knows what he is saying, but he does not have enough practice saying it, so everything is pretty guttural.May 7, 2018 at 8:11 pm #1202543092
As between the supporting players who features the most prominently in the opening episodes?May 7, 2018 at 8:48 pm #1202543105
If voters watch the show, Tahar Rahim will be the first to get a nomination. If voters do not really watch the show, it will be Peter Sarsgaard. Rahim is not a co-lead in the finale; he is the lead of the finale. He lacks name recognition, but the Emmys nominated Richard Cabral for American Crime a few years ago. Cabral did not even have a Wikipedia page; Rahim has a BAFTA nomination. The opening episodes set the show up as the story of the rivalry between Jeff Daniels “and” Peter Sarsgaard, but Sarsgaard barely appears in the second half of the season.May 11, 2018 at 3:09 pm #1202545433
Boys at War was such a great episode! The whole planning and depiction of the Cole attack was really well done. One thing the mini was good at was showing how the FBI track and CIA track were leading in the same direction but that the CIA resistance to share info was very bad. Their whole turf war mentality. Jennifer Ehle was definitely worthy as the harsh overbearing ambassador. Hope Rahim wins.May 11, 2018 at 11:15 pm #1202545595
I am only predicting Tahir Rahim to get in supporting.May 11, 2018 at 11:54 pm #1202545598
I took out Jimmi Simpson for Black Mirror today and replaced him with Tahar Rahim. I’m still currently predicting Sarsgaard and Camp to get into Supporting.May 13, 2018 at 10:27 pm #1202546536
The Hulu box of DVDs to voters this year is extremely minimalist, perhaps even absurdly so. The Looming Tower‘s spread is merely a picture of Jeff Daniels and Tahar Rahim, so that is a point for the latter:
