    Drama Actor video says it’s private and that I cannot watch.  Am I doing something wrong?

    Seems to be a glitch with Drama Actor. We’ll look into it and let you know when it’s all good.

    G’Day, Drama Actor was the only one I was on, maybe google hangouts is trying to tell me something.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Literally standing and clapping for Daniel Montgomery right now!  After listening to 3 such mind numbing dismissals of Dockery being “unlikeable” it was refreshing to see someone not only step up and defend but also call them out on their hypocrisy ignoring an even more unlikeable moment in another tape.  That is how a slugfest should be!  Debate!

    I also have to commend Charlie on his insights and thoughts. He was the standout in all of the slugfests for me, personally.

    Is the Drama Actor slugfest working for anybody? It’s giving me an error. I’m disappointed because this was my favorite slugfest we did all Emmy season, and it appears to be broken.

    EDIT: This video seems to work on iPhones and with some browsers.

    I agree, there is a double standard here. The men are allowed to be as heinous and unlikeable as they wish but the women can’t be? Although I disagree with Daniel that in Claire Danes’ tape she comes off as unlikeable when she admits she wants to give the baby up. I think that is the most vulnerable and sympathetic her character has been in maybe 3 seasons. That also seems like a really backward reaction to have — in the larger sense, why should she be the caregiver to a child she knows she cannot adequately love?

    If anyone was unlikeable in her tape it’s Robin Wright. But instead she’s “elegant” and cool and composed. Okay…

    It occurred to me while watching that the concept that an actor’s show must be well-liked in the Academy for him/her to win has been consistently disproved. Two of last year’s drama winners — Jeff Daniels and Bobby Cannavale — are/were on shows that didn’t get into Series. Food for thought, I suppose…

    YES YES YES!

    Not even 3 minutes in and already a “OH! COME! ON!” from Tom!  Now we are cooking!

    “Shameless is like Shakespeare compared to House of Lies.”- Boomer

    LOL!! So true!  House of Lies is awful.

    “Helen Hunt?? Are you insane??”

    LOL!

    God how I missed this!  Can’t wait for the others!

    I would kill to have a cabin next to Tom’s!

    Let’s get all feminist on these men Sara!

    I am on your side this year.  Danes actually deserves to win based on tape.  It would be sweet after the critics sandbagged the show.  The Star was better than most of the other shows critics wet their pants over this year.

    Yeah, this fest has been giving trouble all day. Sorry bout that. Try Chrome, works on that but has been spoty with other browsers.
