Lead Actress (outside Gold Derby, of course), previous winner.
Olivia Colman is neither the heavy front-runner to win anywhere nor is she a previous winner. In fact, she now a three-time nominee although people tend to treat her like a 10-time nominee.
I swear Gold Derby is the only online forum where The Crown is being considered a massive underperformer at the Emmys, to the extent that users make it sound like the show totally bombed and was ignored across the board.
No one has said that. But it’s without a doubt that it didn’t do as well in the acting races as it should have. New cast or not, this show is in its third year and fresh off its SAG Ensemble WIN, so there’s no reason why it only should have nabbed two acting noms, which, btw, is fewer than even Killing Eve and The Handmaid’s Tale have.
I don’t hear a peep about Ozark’s massive acting snubs being levelled against Linney and Garner, conveniently.
All people here have talked about are Tom and Janet’s snubs, especially the former. And no one is uber-confident in predicting either one of Linney or Garner. In fact, a lot of people have removed Linney from #1 for that exact reason.

What will be very exciting to see is Maisel and The Crown compete against each other in the craft categories because what I interestingly realised is that despite Maisel competing with Dramas below the line and the competition being more competitive this year it still managed to hold on to all of its craft nominations and The Crown seems to be stronger with crafts than last year!

I haven’t seen any hate for Zendaya’s nom. Anywhere.

I don’t hear a peep about Ozark’s massive acting snubs being levelled against Linney and Garner, conveniently… SMH We go from questions like “Did the actors peer group actually watch Ozark, because that snub of the year though”, yet predicting Linney and Garner with utmost confidence. People on here actually thinking Ozark is heading for a sizeable Emmy haul, and I would like to try whatever they are smoking.
Sorry you missed those many posts about that situation. Yes, people have wavered on Linney’s win since nominations came out, and most predictions have Ozark only winning one or two awards as a result.
But please… Do go on.
I actually think Julia Garner can easily repeat for Ozark. Laura Linney I’m not buying. I would like to think Jason Bateman would win the Emmy way before Linney, or at the very least they carry each other to wins in a last season sweep type of thing. However great her performance might be.
And THIS is where I take my leave. Because. Wow. “However great her performance might be, I still think the lead actor should get an Emmy before the lead actress.” Woof.August 10, 2020 at 5:08 pm #1203638708
Any of the experts here know if Lovecraft country is definitely an ongoing drama series or if it’s an anthology series? When it was first picked up, it was supposed to be an anthology series.August 10, 2020 at 7:42 pm #1203639083

So I’m finally watching Ozark S3 and I got to “Su Casa Es Mi Casa” and holy shit that opening therapy scene was something else. I’m already ready to root for Linney to win and I haven’t even gotten to “Fire Pink.”August 10, 2020 at 11:04 pm #1203639374

I don’t want to overhype “Fire Pink” for you because overhype can ruin anything, but her arc very stunningly crystallizes in it, and Linney, of course, brings it. The finale is the cherry on top.

Speaking of which, lemme just say that Jason Bateman is such a mediocre actor.
I think his character is a bit too understated at times, but that still requires an immense amount of control as an actor.
We been knew. Him getting in over Bob Odenkirk is an absolute crime.
Uh, I think most of us would agree that Steve Carell is actually the one who likely stole Odenkirk’s spot. All due respect to Carell…August 11, 2020 at 11:23 am #1203640094
It’s so funny how her and Alexis Bledel have been swapping categories in terms of which ones they compete in every year.
