    For me, Sarah Snook has done more in the first two episodes of S2 than in the entirety of S1. I don’t think she was nom-worthy for the first season, bar perhaps the finale, in which she was great. I still need to see more of her though in S2 to slot her into my predictions. I still think the academy is going to go for THT, BLL, TMS and others in categories like supp. actress before they go to anyone from Succession (Ozark and The Crown are locks in that category). Let’s see what I think though once I’ve finished the season.

    Snook really is phenomenal in season 2 the amount of material she gets should make her a lock for a nomination but I don’t trust voters.

Let’s see what I think though once I’ve finished the season.

    I’m a bit unsure about Gugu Mbatha-Raw. I’m tempted to take her out and slot in either Dowd or Brown (Dowd because she is so close to Dern and Garner on the ballot) because although I loved her performance and Mbatha-Raw could have some goodwill on her side due to San Junipero I am getting Corey Stoll vibes.

    I am a bit worried about Snook because of her placing on the ballot. Same with Strong. In fact I strangely feel more confident in predicting Culkin and Cox considering how close they are to ‘locks’ on the ballot.

    whaaaat? Snook was Emmy worthy in those final three episodes of season 1.

    She deserved a nomination (in supporting actress) over Fiona Shaw based on that scene where she meets Logan in the restaurant alone. I think she would have been a very deserving nominee for Supporting Actress but for Lead Actress (where she competed last year) there isn’t much to write home about in comparison to her performance this time round. I disagree with Luca’s assessment that her only excellent moments were in the finale but at the same time I don’t think she was the MVP of the show then. IMO she IS the joint MVP of this series (along with Cox, MacFadyen and Strong).

    And CULKIN.

    I’m honestly so unimpressed by the male supporting cast of Succession. For me, Strong was male MVP of s1, Cox s2 with Snook being co MVP in both seasons. Those are the only Succession actors I would vote for if I were a voter, with Snook being my priority. Culkin, Braun,  Macfadyen and Strong in s2 just give me the impression that they are playing themselves.

    LMAO have you seen Matthew MacFadyen in anything else? He is most definitely not playing himself in Succession.

    If Jeremy Strong was playing himself in season 2, then he needs to be in a mental hospital.

    Someone hasn’t seen Pride and prejudice or Spooks or Quiz…. I’ve run out of things I’ve seen him in but that’s how good he is  you think he is that forced and fake in real life. My S1 mvp.  🙂

    So, like Luca, I also started to watch season 2 of Succession. I’m currently 4 episodes in and I gotta say… it’s amazing. “Hunting” and “Safe Room” were absolutely phenomenal but specially the former. It’s an absolute masterpiece. The “Boar on the floor” scene was… something else. The cast has been nothing short of mesmerizing. My current MVPs are Cox, Snook and Macfadyen. Cox has a winning tape in “Hunting”, Macfadyen was phenomenal in both “Vaulter” and “Safe Room” but mostly the latter. Snook has been so good that I can’t recall a highlight episode, but I’ll say “The Summer Palace”. Strong hasn’t impressed me, so far. But I think that will change, specially after the final moments of “Safe Room”. And like I said, I have only seen 4 episodes yet so this all can change and I’m sure I haven’t seen the episode of some of the cast. But so far this has been really phenomenal. It’s definetly on its way to become my favorite show of the season.

    FYC Emmys: Helena Bonham Carter (Drama Supporting Actress), Olivia Colman (Drama Actress), Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh (Drama Actress), Fiona Shaw (Drama Supporting Actress), Zendaya (Drama Actress), Alexis Bledel (Drama Guest Actress)

    Big Little Lies is not getting nominated for Outstanding drama series.

    No Drama PGA nominee has ever missed Drama Series at the Emmys though
