    I’m confident that Christina Applegate is returning next year. It’s the second actor to praise her performance.

    And yeah actors love This Is Us, every year we are dropping it in our predictions but the acting branch will probably allow it to stay nominated until it ends.

    It is good that this actress has decided not to vote for the Drama and Limited Series categories since she has seen really little of all of them, at least this was my interpretation. She is the kind of a woman that hates violent and disturbing content, I have a lot of female friends that are just like that, so I am familiar with this way of thinking and I hate it really much, I want to clarify for some sensitive readers that this is not a generalization, I have a lot of female friends that do enjoy horror, violence, Tarantino, Chernobyl and so on, I am speaking about a concrete type of women. But for me is even stranger that an actress can be like that, for me, an artist should be able to be more nuanced and objective. It is obvious that she enjoys comedies most of all and in my opinion she must steek with them when she votes.

    I do like that she appreciates This is us, it deserves to stay relevant.

    All the ballots have shown a complete disinterest and tiresomeness versus GoT, it is an interesting thread.

    Wow, these things need a copy editor. So many typos…

    Also, this actress needs to learn the definition of “unique”. This Is Us is not unique for jumping around in time and Russian Doll does not have a unique concept. It’s similar to Groundhog Day, among other things.

    It does seem like she thoroughly considered all the nominees in the acting categories addressed, so good for her on that. I kind of agree with her about passing over previous winners if there’s another strong contender who hasn’t won.

    “Game of Thrones—no. It’s going to get enough votes anyway, so there you go.” I bet many voters think like that and we might wake up with an upset lol.

    Sadly the problem is there is no clear alternative. She voted for This Is Us, the producer voted for Killing Eve, if her husband is an emmy voter he voted for Succession…

    Game of Thrones is basically a lock, guys. It’s a shame, but it is what it is. Like @ginnala said, there’s no clear alternative to it. That very same reason is why is won last year. The Drama awards were split over The Americans and The Crown, which paved the way for GOT to three-peat.

    I remember a bunch of Oscar ballots saying the same thing about Glenn Close last year “she has it on lock anyway so lemme vote for my actual favorite Olivia”

    And well well well…

    (GOT’s still winning though, lbr)

    The one good thing about the actress voter is that she likes to spread the wealth. It’s difficult to focus on the content of these articles. They’re so poorly written.

    And it’s a shame that this shitty season of GoT is gonna get away with it but Glenn Close couldn’t

    Reading some of those anonymous ballots justifications for their voted choice in comparison to even posts on this forum makes me think even the Gold Derby TV Awards voters take their duty more seriously lol

    It’s the drama equivalent of Modern Family, as long as the show keeps SAG Ensemble it will keep getting nominated.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t Fogleman say he only planned 6 seasons?

    “I just love everything about This Is Us, so that’s what I voted for. Every season has been great. They are so unique with how the story jumps around in time, and the actors really stretch themselves to play different ages. The writing, the directing, and the writing are top-notch. Everybody brings it on that show. It’s an enjoyable watch. It might make you cry—but not in a bad way. I went with what made me feel good.”

    Ohhh we might have to stan HARD for the actress! Also her three favorite comedies are my three faves as well; Veep, Mrs Maisel and Barry. AND she’s team When They See Us? So much taste…
