    If voters actually watched all shows/performances, Freddie Highmore would certainly get in this season.

    I’ve always been gung-ho about Vera Farmiga’s performance and still believe she deserves a nomination, but Highmore has stepped up his game this year with the storyline slowly delving into him transforming more and more.

    I like how Vera dyed her hair blonde and it sort of at times looks a little like Janet Leigh’s in the movie. Nice little touch to mess more with Norman’s mind (and make Norma a classic Hitchcock blonde.)

    I read on the producer’s twitter chat that they will have a Marion Crane character at some point towards the end.

    🙁 We knew this ending was coming but there’s still a whole season left!

    I’m guessing she will still be back in virtually every episode in Norman’s mind as he visions himself as her.

    Just sad to see one of the greatest acting performances on TV right now go away.

    Curious to see where this leaves Romero because in the original film, it is revealed that his mother and lover (I’m guessing Romero!?) die in a murder/suicide situation. Where does this leave Dylan?

    Still so many questions left to answer with a season and an episode to go! Looking forward to seeing Marion Crane next season too!

    This has been the best season of BM. We knew this would happen and still the show writers, producers and actors delivered in a beautiful way.

    Goodbye Norma, you were the true villian of this story.

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.

    If these last few episodes are any indication, the season finale could be the best episode of the series. Farmiga needs to be nominated again, and win for her layered and emotionally charged performance this season which is leagues above the rest. RIP Norma Bates

    In a fair Emmy world this season of Bates Motel would get nominations for Drama Series, directing/writing, actor and actress.

    But wait, in this world let’s expect more nominations for Downton Abbey and Homeland.

    Just finished the last two episodes and they were some seriously messed-up shit, y’all. The creative team went for broke this season and nailed it. The work that Farmiga and Highmore did just has no equal this year and you could basically draw an episode out of a hat for either of them and come up with an Emmy-worthy submission.

    I loved how the last couple of episodes tied storylines that seemed to be extraneous together–the DEA taking Romero away and Dylan’s move to Portland turned out to be critical set-up for the final run of episodes.

    The final image of the Christmas lights coming on will stay with me for a while. I really look forward to season 5, but I’m glad we get a little break to recover from season 4. I know it won’t happen, but I would completely support a Drama Series nomination.

    Rihanna has being cast as Marion Crane.

    WHY?,WHY? WHY?,WHY?, WHY?,WHY?

    Those the producers of Bates Motel didn’t see Battleship?…Rihanna can’t act. Now i hope the shower scene is in episode one.

    Why this show is so off the radar?

    Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga were much much better of most of the actors nominated this year at Emmys, SAG, Globes and Critic Choice awards.

    At least Farmiga was nominated for this show! So many other amazing performances and shows that have been totally ignored. I doubt it will get back in to any major categories for its final season.

    For Your Consideration:

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

    Farmiga is great, but Highmore’s performance is absolutely atrocious.

    I honestly kind of shocked myself when I was making my top ten DRAMA list for the year and “Bates” made my top five, but this season was just that good. Farmiga and especially Highmore had fantastic seasons. I’m genuinely excited about the final season!
