^She is deserving, yes.March 21, 2019 at 5:25 pm #1202824998
I don’t watch Ozark.
A question: is Laura Linney deserving of a lead Emmy nomination for season 2 or she’s in everyone prediction just beacuse she’s Laura Linney and the field is so weak this year?
She’s pretty deserving in my opinion. She was much more of a lead in the second season than the first, too.
I was actually pretty surprised she missed last year. I would bet she was sixth.March 25, 2019 at 3:09 am #1202828453
I just finished Homecoming; am I the only one who didn’t love it? I actually had many problems with it that I don’t even feel like addressing ATM. I really wanted to love this and was prepared to do so, but something about the style really turned me off. Don’t get me wrong, it has many, many strengths, but they’re dragged down by the show’s flaws IMO. Roberts was good but didn’t (IMO) have enough to do to be a strong frontrunner in Best Actress. The supporting men were just fine; I don’t think Whigham or Cannavale deserve nods. Spacek definitely doesn’t deserve a nod for doing pretty much nothing.
Stephan James was amazing. I’d be happy if he got a nod. Very sad that Jean-Baptiste probably won’t be eligible for Guest Actress because of that damn phone call. She would have been a very deserving nominee. So does that leave Hong Chau? She was fine but not Emmy-worthy.
I think this had the same problem that Mr. Robot S2 had: Esmail tries to be so stylish that the story gets lost in the process. I don’t see him getting a directing nod, especially since he couldn’t get one for the exceptional Mr. Robot pilot.
This is by no means a bad or lackluster show, I just wasn’t as impressed by it as I had anticipated. Something about it just left me cold.

Roberts in Homecoming remains the best performance of this seasonMarch 25, 2019 at 5:06 am #1202828507
I liked Homecoming but I’ve been saying for months it’s been blown out of proportion. It’s nice but not what the hype made it to be, and definitely not Emmy worthy

Homecoming is overrated, Roberts and James are notMarch 25, 2019 at 10:23 am #1202828874
I hope “Game of Thrones” is extremely strong enough to land Alfie Allen a nomination.March 25, 2019 at 2:32 pm #1202829193
Is it possible that Sandra Oh, Laura Linney, Julia Roberts, Jodie Comer, Emilia Clarke, Robin Wright and Christine Baranski could all make it in because of a tie and give use 7 Emmy Actress nominees. I know we have a barren field but I think that Baranski, Wright and Clarke are only a few votes behind one another (particularly in the case of Wright with Clarke and Baranski with Wright). I feel like Emmy voters will go with Baranski if they want to go with someone who is an Emmy darling they are familiar with for a show set in a universe they are familiar with, Wright’s never missed and Clarke is the lead in the biggest Drama Series contender this year. I feel like those seven are the ones who stand the most chance at getting in and all seven can possibly do just that, however, there are two dark horses who could get in (but in this case, this is less likely than a tie of 7), these horses are Keeley Hawes for Bodyguard (who will get in if Netflix campaigns hard for the show and it is loved by Netflix heavily) and Viola Davis for HtGAwM (if Emmy voters go to someone they are familiar with).

Alfie Allen deserved a nomination in Supporting Actor for each season (except S1) but unfortunately HBO only submitted him for S2. I doubt they would submit him for the final season.March 25, 2019 at 2:55 pm #1202829206

Tbf, I’m still working my way through the series (I’m 2 episodes into Season 6), but in my opinion Allen has been outshone by several male cast members in every season I‘ve seen except Season 2 (where only Dinklage and Dance did better). In Season 3 he was bogged down by one of the worst storylines in the entire show, in Season 4 he was simply outacted by Dinklage, Dance, Coster-Waldau, and McCann, and he wasn’t much of a presence in Season 5.March 25, 2019 at 6:06 pm #1202829349
Christine Baranski was not nominated in supporting for the final season of The Good Wife, cannot get nominated in comedy guest for The Big Bang Theory anymore and her show could not get guests Alan Alda and Margo Martindale nominated, so I do not see why she would make it into lead.

I think that your response is in line with most of ours actually.
I don’t see him getting a directing nod, especially since he couldn’t get one for the exceptional Mr. Robot pilot.
Sam Esmail did not direct the Mr. Robot pilot.March 25, 2019 at 7:30 pm #1202829405
Lord help us all if Emailia Clarke gets in for Lead Actress for doing nothing, but summoning a dragon.
