    Daniel has seen the whole thing and it is apparently amazing.

    I’ve heard from several people in the industry, and this project is going to clean up at the Emmys.

    And yet Daniel is barely predicting only two acting nominations: Michael Kenneth Williams in sixth and Niecy Nash in fifth.  Chris is not predicting any supporting actors.  Is this as non-performance-driven as Chernobyl?

    Probably a stupid question, but does her scandal kill Felicity Huffman’s chances of nomination for this? I assume she’s likely not being submitted or campaigned for this?

    I would say they won’t submit her, but Netflix did submit Jeffrey Tambor last year for AD so they might, but I doubt it

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Is it possible that Jerome is submitted in supporting?

    So no one cited Vera Farmiga performance-wise? And she looked quite baity in that trailer.

    I have checked now multiple times to make sure that the embargo has really lifted, but the reviews are officially out. It starts at 90, 90, and 75 on Metacritic – looks good!

    I’ve seen the first episode, and it’s harrowingly brilliant. DuVernay knows how to make something feel incredibly raw and realistic, which is clearly visible here. I don’t want to say too much about the episode because people should go in unbiased, but it’s hard to point out the acting standouts for me because the entire cast absolutely nailed it. The five boys are all particularly incredible, especially the youngest (Asante Blackk). Both Farmiga and Huffman play pretty one-note characters (so far), but Huffman would have easily gotten in had it not been for the scandal, at least in my opinion. Curious to see what Niecy Nash still does because she barely had screen time in this episode; Huffman was more of a lead. As for score, cinematography, editing, and so on, there’s not much I can say yet, but the cinematography is quite stunning, especially towards the end of the episode. There’s also a lot of editing.

    Riley is much better than me at putting his reactions into words; I am sure he’ll share his thoughts soon.

    WOW! Luca, as if I wasn’t excited to see this before, I really am now! Your description has got me pumped!

    I saw the whole thing in a marathon screening the weekend before last. It’s the real deal. Absolutely gutting. The tough part will be acting nominations. It’s a true ensemble, lots of great performances, but that means a lot of them could cancel each other out in the supporting categories. I’d love to see Jharrel Jerome get traction for Best Actor, though. He gets the biggest and best showcase out of any of the cast. Michael K. Williams is also terrific. Vera Farmiga and Niecy Nash are among the standout women. Aunjanue Ellis too.

    That’s exactly how I feel about the actors, Daniel. They are all incredible, and it’ll be really hard to point out or predict which ones will actually snatch Emmy nods – they all deserve it. I can’t wait to watch the remaining three eps, and I am very glad to hear that someone is praising Farmiga’s acting!

    The Movie/Mini supporting actress category has probably been the wildest and hardest to predict so far.

    After Arquette and Clarkson, I can see eight different women who can take up those last four slots.

    Currently, I have Farmiga, Weigert, Thompson, and Watson. I can see the actual line-up having any one, two, three, four, or none of them.

    I’ve now seen episodes 2 & 3.

    Episode 2 – Incredibly fast paced follow-up to the premiere. A lot happens, and they’re really not wasting any time here. It’s a sickening episode that made me want to punch something, really. The final shots are outstanding. This will probably be Farmiga’s submission; she’s incredible in it and has a lot of screen time. Jerome is fantastic as well.

    Episode 3 – Not what I expected at all, but this episode kept breaking my heart over and over again. I really have to watch something light now because this installment really made me depressed. The show feels so realistic at times that it’s really uncomfortable to watch. It barely feels like television, and the acting barely feels like acting, it’s so real and raw. The last scene really devastated me.

    Other overall thoughts: Niecy Nash going lead makes absolutely zero sense, at least so far. She’s had like 20 minutes of screen time overall, she really needs to dominate that finale. I really don’t know who to predict for the acting categories because the cast just gets bigger and bigger. I feel somewhat confident in Farmiga and Williams because they have showy roles. The former seems to have disappeared though, and the latter has knockout scenes but little screen time – so I don’t know. I think it’ll get writing, directing, and series for sure. Leguizamo has screen time, but I am not sure he stands out IMO.

    Overall, I adore the show and I think it’s a real threat to take limited series.

    These have been my exact six since Nash vacated and I see that we even have them in the exact same order now. Cool that we have the same six, given that only three of these are favoured in the odds; the other three are the next in line. I am not sure that I have come across someone with as similar predictions across the board actually because even where we differ, you have some people that I had a week ago.

    What’s happening? I have the same six supporting actresses. I just put Farmiga down in sixth the other day, though.

    I am quite confident in these six so we might be on to something here. It is kind of crazy because I actually have 4 of these 6 at 100/1 odds!! I am only nervous about Eliza Scanlen who I know I should slot back in, but she just reminds me of Cody Fern from last year.

    I am not sure that I have come across someone with as similar predictions across the board actually because even where we differ, you have some people that I had a week ago.

    Haha I just noticed that. And I am really tempted to put both Cox and McFayden in my predictions as well!! Even our rankings are mostly the same!!

    I do think you should slot in Waller-Bridge in though.
