    This season wasn’t so bad as many of you are saying. It had many ridiculous moments, but it still was a lot of fun to watch it. And Robin Wright is magnificent; I know it’s not popular to say that here, but the fact that she’ll (probably) never receive an Emmy for her portrayal of Claire Underwood is outrageous.

    I thought Wright’s performance is universally praised here?

    At least Robin Wright won her Goldderby TV Award last year and even the Golden Globe for her shows first season, so she has received some solid recognition, even though it may not be the same as an Emmy. She really should have won for the shows 2nd or 3rd season, she even had the best episode for her 3rd season, and incorrectly predicted her to win the Emmy both times. 🙁

    I honestly (without having seen only Rhys’ Americans tape) think that out of all the episodes submitted for Drama Lead Actor, Kevin Spacey has by far the single best tape, and I would vote for him based not only because of how overdue he is, but what are the point of episode submissions if you are not going to vote based on them? “I will not yield! I will not yield! I will not yield.” What a performance! 😀

    Maybe, but she’s never considered a deserving winner, she’s always a deserving nominee. I would actually prefer to see Wright winning over Moss.

    I thought that this was her weakest season and the first time she didn’t deserve a nomination. She had some juicy material of course but it just wasn’t on the level it has been.

    This is another issue. Spacey’s acting is inferior to Wright’s acting but again, highly unpopular opinion, he deserves an Emmy too. The character he creates, with all its limits, is iconic.

    Marco B. has chosen the unlikeliest of places to be generous. I’m shocked!

    However, as I’ve said before, finishing the first season of The Handmaid’s Tale made me reconsider whether HoC really was the worst Drama nominee we had this year.

    Sometimes I have the impression I am the infinitely more generous version of you Gus, lol. I kind of think the same about The Handmaid’s Tale, but I still believe it’s a good series (two episodes left).
