Chandler won the Emmy this year, but did he really deserve it?August 2, 2013 at 10:24 am #293137
Oh boy, what a loaded question…And the answer is yes, he did.August 2, 2013 at 10:26 am #293138
Oh… yes, he did. Yep, he really did. And he is great in “Always”. Really is.
But I expect the Mad Men fans to come here and say all that stuff they usually say about Hamm in The Suitcase when this comes up.August 2, 2013 at 10:29 am #293139
If he already had an Emmy for FNL I’d say ‘no, give it to Hamm,’ but…Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantAugust 2, 2013 at 10:34 am #293140
As much as I loved Chandler in “Always” and Hamm in “The Suitcase”, I actually think that Timothy Olyphant probably deserved the Emmy.August 2, 2013 at 10:49 am #293141
Chandler, Olyphant and Hamm all were extremely deserving that year.August 2, 2013 at 11:06 am #293142
Personally, I do think he was deserving.
However, between Hamm, Chandler and Olyphant, whoever had won I’d say the same thing.August 2, 2013 at 11:11 am #293143
Hamm would have been my choice, definitely. But you can’t tell me that it wasn’t an astounding thrill to see Kyle Chandler finally earn his just due for FNL’s swan song. If I can remember my reaction correctly, it went something like:
“OH MY GOD, KYLE CHANDLER! This is great! I Can’t Belie- ah, shit, Jon Hamm’s never going to win, now!”
I guess you could say it was bittersweet, but I was immensely satisfied with their decision.August 2, 2013 at 11:44 am #293144
He wasn’t even nominated that year but.. Gabriel Byrne was marvelous in my humble opinion in the third season of In Treatment which was probably the best one, he had great moments and possibly, as i can recall, a great tape. (well, he had that in 2009 but lost eventually)
From these nominees, it’s really a tough one as both Hamm and Chandler had stiring episodes submitted.August 2, 2013 at 11:53 am #293145
Hamm should have won but Chandler deserved to win at least once for Coach Taylor. Cranston won too much which let no one else win but it really was a competitive year so any of the six men deserved to win.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantAugust 2, 2013 at 11:55 am #293146
Wow! I totally forget that Hugh Laurie was nominated in 2011. Who were the other two?August 2, 2013 at 12:19 pm #293147
This thread is weird.August 2, 2013 at 12:30 pm #293148
Only because it would usually be a poll.
Michael C. Hall (with possibly the worst submission he ever gave, at least when one thinks of what else he had)
Timothy OlyphantMarcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantAugust 2, 2013 at 12:40 pm #293149
Oh yeah. LOL! Thanks! Hall really did submit a bad episode that year. He really would have put up a fight with “My Bad”. On Buscemi, he really didn’t submit his best episode, either. While “A Return to Normalcy” was a good episode submission, “Home” was his best choice.August 2, 2013 at 12:41 pm #293150
It mostly comes down to how much “The Suitcase” does it for you. If you’re one of the people that think it’s the peak of the series and not just random, isolated bait, then you’d probably think Hamm should have won. Chandler deserved his Emmy not just for his submitted episode but for his work throughout the season. He had a strong arc and competitive tapes in “Swerve”, “Don’t Go” and “Texas Whatever”. That’s one of the most deserving acting wins ever.
