    I finished it two nights ago. Moss really did that. Now that my girl Billie is ineligible, I think Moss might actually be my favourite of the category. Fagbenle, Brewer and Dowd (girl sold her material in a phenomenal way even with her short screentime) should get nominations. Wiley was quite good but for some reason I wasn’t that much into her. But she’s definitely deserving of a nom. Fiennes was good in the finale but I wouldn’t nominate him in lead (What a dumb placement). Strahovski and Whitford didn’t do much outside a few good moments and shouldn’t get in. Bledel, Brugel and Grace must come for those Guest noms. We are manifesting it. Overall, it was definitely a far superior season than season 3. ‘Testimony’ was probably my favourite episode of the season and Moss deserves a Directing nom for it.

    Well, cheers to that! I am so glad you also mentioned Ann Dowd, because I think her work this season was been very underrated. Whenever she walks onto the screen, she gives it 200% and absolutely delivers. She can convey so much with just a single line or single stare, it’s unbelievable. I have such a hard time choosing which one of 3, 5, 8 and 9 I would want her to submit. Same applies to Brewer, who should easily be getting nominated. ” 2 mins of screen time in 4×08 and bam, she almost stole the episode for me. Grace submitted 1, but I thought 9 was her best ep. And, of course, Moss was truly next-level.

    Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Nominees Since 2015: – 14 previously nominated performances – 29 from shows nominated that year in one of the drama categories at SAG – 5 Golden Globe nominated performances – 11 performances from the drama series winner/frontrunner The following this year all have at least one of those factors playing in their favour: – Asante Blackk, This is Us – Jonathan Bailey, Bridgerton – Griffin Dunne, This is Us – Giancarlo Esposito, The Mandalorian – OT Fagbenle, The Handmaid’s Tale – Justin Hartley, This is Us – Tobias Menzies, The Crown – Max Minghella, The Handmaid’s Tale – Chris Sullivan, This is Us – Michael K. Williams, Lovecraft Country – Bradley Whitford, The Handmaid’s Tale Performers who fit none of that criteria and were individually ONLY nominated at Critics Choice however tend to perform poorly (e.g. Asia Kate Dillon, Delroy Lindo, Matthew Macfadyen (Succession s1), Michael McKean, Shea Whigham) which isn’t great news for someone like John Lithgow’s chances. Last year’s nominees each fared well under this : – Nicholas Braun (in the series winner) – Billy Crudup (The Morning Show was nominated in 3 categories at SAG including for himself individually) – Kieran Culkin (Golden Globe nominee + in the series winner) – Mark Duplass (The Morning Show was nominated in 3 categories at SAG) – Giancarlo Esposito (incumbent nominee + Better Call Saul was nominated the previous year for two SAG awards and would go on to retain those nominations the following year) – Matthew Macfadyen (in the series winner) – Bradley Whitford (incumbent nominee + The Handmaid’s Tale was nominated for 2 SAG categories) – Jeffrey Wright (incumbent nominee) The three notable omissions all had strikes against them. O’Connor did not receive a Golden Globe nomination (or Critics Choice) for his performance even as The Crown was embraced there. He only received a BAFTA nomination and the only thing that was really going for him was that The Crown was the SAG ensemble winner and he would be coat tailing to its strength – of which it had little that year. Similar thing with Tom Pelphrey (although he was nominated at Critics Choice). Jonathan Banks’ snub is less explicable but Better Call Saul’s awards performance very much is inexplicable. Being in the series winner trumps everything else (the only drama series winner to miss in this category was The Handmaid’s Tale and that was in a much more competitive field) which bodes well for BAFTA and Critics Choice nominated Menzies who not only do I think is the safest to get nominated but I also have him as my predicted winner right now. It feels like a Ben Mendelsohn winning for Bloodline type of situation where this is an arguably open field (the 2016 one being because of the Dinklage/Harrington vote-split and it might potentially be a similar case this year with Lovecraft potentially under-performing due to not having lots of passion or buzz) and the seasoned performer whose appearances in this season of their show are scarce ends up taking the Emmy due to the goodwill from their work in the previous season. Coincidentally both Menzies and Mendelsohn were also nominated at the Globes for their first seasons lol. Jonathan Bailey is at risk of being this year’s O’Connor/Pelphrey but with how depressingly barren the field is and how well Bridgerton performed at the guilds I won’t predict such a thing.

    Ann Dowd should absolutely go with 3. She has the most screentime in that episode. 9 wouldn’t be a bad choice either. Grace has the most to do in Episode 1 so I can see why she would go with it even though she was better in 9.

    But the bigger question is: What should Moss go with? She could literally go with every ep. 💀💀 6, 7 or 10 for me. I have a soft spot for 6, so that might be my fave ep of hers.

    I think Moss should go with either ‘Home’ or ‘Testimony’. Leaning more towards the latter.

    I can’t wait for Olivia Colman to submit a random episode again. Watch how she submits something like “The Balmoral Test” or “The Hereditary Principle” lmao.

    “Testimony” makes sense too because of the monologue for sure. She’d prob go with that. I sill prefer 6,7 and 10 though.

    The Hereditary Principle, loll.💀 Her way of campaigning for HBC.

    Colman should submit “Fagan”
    I do know everyone loved Corrin on “Fairytale”, but i think she took it to the next level on “Terra Nullius”
    Moss for me is easily “Vows”
    Aduba I don’t know, I didn’t watch In Treatment yet.
    MJ should submit “Series Finale”
    Paulson should submit I don’t know, barely remember anything from Ratched, but I guess “The Dance” is okay.

    And that’s my predicted top 6

    FYC Emmys: Get MJ Rodriguez that deserved WIN! And some votes for Elizabeth Olsen, Tobias Menzies and Matthew Rhys will be highly tasteful as well

    If Billie Piper was eligible and nominated and we were under the tape system she could just submit any tape from <i>I Hate Suzie </i>and still be in the top 3 for the win lmao.

    Moss would probably win this under the tape system regardless.

    100% This!!! Couldn’t agree more. But for some reason I have a feeling Colman is going with ‘Favourites’.

    The only thing that prevents me from putting “Fagan” in my “should/will submit” is that Tom Brooke owns it to the core, but yeah, she did submit a random episode before, so I won’t be surprised if it happens for the umpteenth time. The better one, I think, is “Favourites”. Similarly, it is a showcase of responding and facial expression (so are any other episodes for her essentially). That said, hers is the centre of the episode, and her screentime is much longer, so the voters may understand her character a little bit deeper. The fact that it is quite a standalone episode in terms of plotline obviously helps her.

    The thing I like about her performance in “Fagan” so much is how it felt like she opened up the wrapping paper of this character? We just got to see the character in a very human way in which we haven’t since the first season.

    Do people who think Perry Mason is being overestimated also think Lithgow is?
