    Dropping by to say that Jon Hamm was fantastic in Baby Driver and Bad Times at the El Royale.

    He was great in The Report too. Not a ton of screen time but he used what he had.

    Game of Thrones is, probably, the most famous Series of all time. Different to 99% of Series, Game of Thrones was a huge success Worldwide. So, why only Peter Dinklage is getting good work after it? The cast, especially women, aren’t getting offers. Only Peter Dinklage has great offers

    Because Hollywood has a very narrow-minded view of which women are able to lead successful films. There are plenty of actors in the GOT cast who have the talent to win Oscars, but don’t get the roles/exposure due to age among other factors. Lena Headey has never been particularly interested in the limelight. Carice van Houten in Instinct was better than the entire best actress category last year, but the film was unable to get an international distributor after a festival run. She’s been the biggest actress in The Netherlands for a number of years though. Just last year, Natalie Dormer gave a fantastic performance in Penny Dreadful (and had already impressed before GOT in The Tudors), but isn’t offered many high profile roles.

    Aside from those three, plenty of the actors who weren’t part of the central cast have also continued to get work (Bean, Dance, Dillane, Lesser, Varma, Huisman). Pedro Pascal is currently leading a huge Star Wars show, and Momoa has done well with Aquaman.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Lena Headey should be leading her own damn show and racking up award after award. I still can’t believe she never won for GOT.

    The problem Emilia Clarke has is that no one treats her as a serious or prestigious actress. That might have changed had her production of The Seagull not been hampered by Covid but I think that’s the real reason she hasn’t really been offered anything.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    I didn’t even know that, that’s how much of a non-factor it feels like for Steinfeld’s general career trajectory.

    To be fair to her acting career, she does also have a side hustle as a popstar.

    I agree. Hollywood is ageist only against women. If you are a man, you could work until 91 like Clint Eastwood. But if you are not Meryl Streep, it’s over. For some weird reason, Hollywood 100% hates old women.

    While I find Clarke mediocre in some of those franchises, I thought her performance in Last Christmas was pretty sweet. If the film had been better quality, it could have been her breakthrough as a cinematic lead, and I’d still have nominated her at least for the Golden Globe that year, especially when you look at some of the nominees in the weaker Comedy/Musical category in general, this year for instance!

    Dinklage seems to be doing fine, he was in a BP nominee, and if I Care a Lot is unexpectedly embraced could be a surprise nominee in Supporting.

    Vitalina Varela, Vitalina Varela (Actress)
    Andrea Riseborough, Karim Saleh, Possessor/Luxor (Actress, Actor)
    Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage, I Care a Lot (Actress, Supporting Actor)
    Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, The Duke (Actor, Supporting Actress)
    Sophia Loren, Abril Zamora, The Life Ahead (Actress, Supporting Actress)
    Carey Mulligan, Promising Young Woman (Actress)

    Darling, what are you talking about? In my Thatcherian book, Queen Headey won at least 3 Emmys.

    That sounds like a you problem, because since Bumblebee she’s gotten a solo Apple TV+ show AND a Disney+ show.

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)
