Matthews’s performance is subtler so I’m not surprised Roman is more popular. Most people go for the flamboyant and flashy ones.August 5, 2020 at 10:22 am #1203627912
Killing Eve continues to be massive in UK:
“ Hit new BBC Three drama Normal People and the third series of cat and mouse thriller Killing Eve make up all of the top ten most popular episodes so far this year. The latest chapter of Villanelle and Eve’s story tops the list, with episode one achieving 6.95 million requests and series 3 receiving a total of 35.6 million requests so far.”August 5, 2020 at 10:39 am #1203627940
Also predicting Crudup at the moment. I doubt that Duplass takes that many votes away from him, if any. I think Culkin can overcome the “Succession” vote-split, especially if both seasons of work are taken into account. Whitford’s show is on a perceived decline, so even being last year’s guest actor winner might not help him much now. As I mentioned earlier, we have to take both Esposito and Wright seriously here, since history can be made with the first black winner the category has ever had. It’s horribly egregious on the television Academy’s part, which would also be a great “pat themselves on the back” sort of moment for them to say, “look how much we support BLM!” I’ve moved both men up in my predictions in light of this.
I also moved Wright up to number 2.August 5, 2020 at 11:19 am #1203628009

His overall work as Tom isn’t subtle at all though lol, not just here. I would say Kieren gives the more subtle performance out of the two. But I definitely agree that Roman is a more popular character than Tom. Poor Tom…August 5, 2020 at 12:42 pm #1203628226
Aside from the scenes with J Smith-Cameron, Culkin doesn’t particularly show much range – that’s not a criticism of him because Roman as a character is (in my opinion brilliantly) written that way. I definitely wouldn’t dismiss him as two dimensional, but I wouldn’t describe him as ‘subtle’ either. As Roman’s relationship with his father is addressed more and more, that could change. Macfadyen gives a more nuanced performance as his character demands it. ‘Subtle’ doesn’t just mean ‘not loud/showy’.

“Culkin” and “subtle” in the same sentence??August 5, 2020 at 2:27 pm #1203628572

Yeah because Roman is like a 10 on the flamboyant scale but I wouldn’t say Tom is not flashy at all but he does have his subtle moments.August 5, 2020 at 2:54 pm #1203628654
I truly do not understand the Tom Pelphrey snub.August 5, 2020 at 2:58 pm #1203628677
This whole debate is what I was talking about. There’s very little consensus on which one is a better performer out of the two, mostly due to the brilliant, very original writing.August 5, 2020 at 3:09 pm #1203628712
A performance, when the writing is good and the actor is capable, is never just one thing. Culkin is flashy and flamboyant at times, but also subtle and quiet at times. His later scenes in “Tern Haven,” for instance, fall under the latter category. But his character is written to be loud (and vulgar) most of the time.
