Unless they take more liberties than the book material, The Underground Railroad is unlikely to have a male lead.March 2, 2021 at 12:20 pm #1204077347
If that’s the case then it does look like we’re headed for a top 6 of Alexander, Bettany, Grant, Hawke, McGregor and Rahim.

Having just finished It’s a Sin, I now definitely WANT Keeley Hawes to be nominated, but I’m less convinced that she will. Her performance in the last episode is absolutely phenomenal, completely win-worthy. With the nominees I’ve personally seen up until now, I’m rooting for her to take it.
However, because her role is largely unremarkable and removed from the main plot until that last episode, I worry that viewers who haven’t seen the series in its entirety (or at all) won’t know to vote for her. A bit of a Pelphrey/Paulson/Mbatha-Raw situation where it all hinges on voters having seen pretty much the whole season. She does benefit from the fact that it was an all-at-once drop and only five episodes, so it’s much easier for viewers than the three aforementioned shows.
Normally I wouldn’t be overthinking about this, but the last time Hawes was in contention for a fairly limited role in a buzzy British series, she didn’t end up making it. And at that time she had it easier, featuring in the first half of the season. I’ll wait to see how big IaS can manage to get, and how much of a splash Mare of Easttown, The Underground Railroad, and Nine Perfect Strangers make, but while I am much more excited about her now, I think she’s on the bubble.March 2, 2021 at 5:42 pm #1204078024
Yeah I have similar fears about Hawes. It’s a phenomenal performance and one that’s undeniable for the nod… but if voters see the episode.
I do think what helps her is that like you said It’s a Sin is a much shorter show than those you’ve mentioned and has dropped all at once in February. Which should give some time for those Emmy voters who haven’t binged (we know some already have) to see the finale.
What does hurt her is not only what you said Heptapod about the possibility that people like Jean Smart (Mare of Easttown) and Amber Gray (The Underground Railroad) might end up being ahead of her (I’m sure Nine Perfect Strangers will miss eligibility) and getting more buzz whilst some voters still leave the last episode of It’s a Sin unwatched. There is also the possibility of Lydia West (who has the most buzz and acclaim of all the cast members) going supporting which would hurt Hawes’ chances at a nomination and a win.
She could get snubbed but I think if she gets nominated (and West is snubbed somehow or goes lead) then she’s probably top 3 for the win.

At the moment I’d say the win in each category is between:
Series: I May Destroy You vs The Queen’s Gambit
Actor: Olly Alexander vs Ewan McGregor
Actress: Michaela Coel vs Anya Taylor-Joy
S. Actor: John Boyega vs Aaron Pierre
S. Actress: Anna Chlumsky vs Kathryn Hahn vs Keeley Hawes/Lydia West
Writing: I May Destroy You vs I May Destroy You
Directing: Small Axe vs The Queen’s GambitMarch 2, 2021 at 7:21 pm #1204078266

“It’s a Sin” should literally win all the Emmys it is eligible for. Utterly brilliant.March 3, 2021 at 12:07 pm #1204080449

I found this article quite cool about WandaVision and how you can watch it without being all in on the MCU
If any of you are interested and see it but don’t wanna see the movies.
For Your Emmy Consideration:
Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" as Leading Actor in a Drama Series
Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird" as Leading Actor in a Limited Series
Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" as Leading and Supporting actress in Limited Series
Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" as Leading Actress in a Drama Series.March 3, 2021 at 5:47 pm #1204081055
Landed on Marvel TikTok a few days ago and it’s full of fans complaining about the “New Fans” / “Wanda Fans”, (seen WandaVision but nothing else).
So not surprised to see more people / general audiences are watching it without the seeing the past 25(ish) films.
That’s kinda the beauty of streaming shows, even if it’s IP heavily, general audiences usually take to them pretty easy, just look at The Mandalorian, Hannibal, High School Musical (The Musical The Series), Cobra Kai, Love Victor, What We Do in the Shadows, Watchmen etc.
Weren’t the Netflix shows (Jessica Jones, Luke Cage etc), watched liked that as well?
