Key & Peele. Grace and Frankie. Seemingly inseparable pairs, yet the Emmys nominated Key twice without Peele and Frankie twice without Grace. Critics’ Choice also nominated Ilana twice without Abbi for Broad City. With how packed the category is this year and with Shailene as a wild card, we need to be prepared for the possibility of only one of Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman getting nominated. I read comments about how certain people might prefer one performance, but let us settle this once and for all. If you were a member of the Television Academy and had space for only one on your ballot for whatever reason, who would you choose? Please vote in the poll even if you have only seen an episode or two; that will make our sample more representative, as many voters will surely make their decision not off of the complete miniseries.April 4, 2017 at 2:22 pm #1202055119
Kidman is oubviously winning this poll. I voted for Reese in the poll just because I wanted to help the underdog lol. But honestly I would vote Shaliene over both of them.April 4, 2017 at 2:39 pm #1202055156
Whenever Reese did TV (Friends, SNL or The Muppets) she was overlooked. Nicole was nominated only once for Hemingway & Gellhorn and overlooked for Grace of Monaco (thank god for that one!) so I’m guessing if they’re gonna vote for only one of the two, they’ll go with Nicole.April 4, 2017 at 2:43 pm #1202055166
Both were fantastic and if I’d only seen the first two episodes it would be Witherspoon but, having seen them all, it’s Kidman hands down.April 4, 2017 at 3:39 pm #1202055224
Critics’ Choice also nominated Ilana twice without Abbi for Broad City.
A little off topic since this a BLL poll, but since you brought this to my attention I thought I’d ask your (and everyone else’s) opinion on this. I’ve always thought Abbi was a better actress even though Ilana plays the quirkier character. Oh and I would’ve said Nicole over Reese even for just the first 3 episodes. I hope Reese gets snubbed for Huffman, King, and Coon.April 4, 2017 at 3:48 pm #1202055231
Too bad that Critics’ Choice has nominated Ilana twice without Abbi. I thought that they were about even in the first season, but sooner would have nominated Abbi for the second season, for her dual role as the singing Val. The third season seemed more like an Ilana season and Abbi’s impression of Ilana made me appreciate how much the latter is always “on”.April 4, 2017 at 3:55 pm #1202055239
I feel fairly confident that both will deservedly get nominated but for those who watched the whole series it’s undeniable that Kidman comes to the forefront in the back half.April 4, 2017 at 5:08 pm #1202055296
I have a hard time picking one because I think they are not awards-worthy. I guess Kidman is slightly ahead because of the therapy scenes.April 4, 2017 at 5:23 pm #1202055318
Witherspoon. Easy pick. Kidman at times felt supporting, by the way. She got her lead status in the second half of the season. But I can’t forget how great Witherspoon was all along and firmly in a lead position from beginning to end.May 12, 2017 at 9:51 pm #1202091469
I went with Nicole, who killed the therapy scenes. Reese was fine, but I am not considering her for my personal awards.May 12, 2017 at 10:51 pm #1202091506
Witherspoon was blah, she does nothing special. I would love it if she was snubbed, but that isn’t going to happen. I can dream though. Kidman does some career best work here, and I think she’s at least one of the 5 best actresses of her generation. She should win the Emmy.May 12, 2017 at 11:01 pm #1202091518

I don’t think Witherspoon will get in. There is no room for her.
