    You can’t appreciate Rachel’s performance based on a single clip because she really portrays two characters, Midge in her day to day life and Midge when she performs. It’s really phenomenal how she seamlessly transitions from one to the other. This clip is the closest she gets to mixing both these sides of Midge but she’s still performing in front on an “audience”.

    Exactly and if you watch the show this clip is amazing. She can see how she is losing her confidence and control after she saw her father is in the audience.

    loved the clips. PWB or JLD are really winning. Loved her performance on the show, but Christina’s clip is the weakest

    This is definitely JLD’s hardest year to win… I’m curious to see what happens. Phoebe Waller-Bridge would have taken this is a cakewalk if JLD wasn’t in the race. These two are neck and neck. JLD does have the best tape, but good god PWB was amazing during this campaign race. She’s been everywhere and many academy members have seen her live performance of Fleabag in London and/or New York.

    I think some people’s rankings here are really interesting.

    JLD’s clip is clearly the best and Applegate’s is the worst, yes think we’re all pretty much agreed on that. But I think it’s really strange that people have Waller-Bridge and Lyonne ranked so highly based on these when neither is showing off any kind of range (even if the former’s is very funny).

    O’Hara, who I passionately maintained chose the wrong tape, is second purely on the basis that what she does with that crow voice is something none of the rest of these actors would even dare to think of. She then beautifully downplays the interaction with the director, creating an instant contrast which is brilliantly effective in further enhancing the voice she just did.

    Brosnahan is close behind her and I’d argue if we take the funny out of the equation she’s giving a better performance than everyone as her thought process is so clear and so precise and is matched by neatly complementary gesture and facial work that physicalises the internal fight between her stand-up self and her true self in this moment.

    I agree. I don’t watch Maisel so i really think that had a factor on me disliking Rachel’s clip the most. Since i don’t know the context of the performance it was really hard for me to connect with Her. But at the same time i find it a little bit weird because i also don’t watch Veep and yet just by that clip i would be thrilled to see JLD winning. And i’m someone who is praying really hard for Phoebe. But judging by that clip JLD was just PERFECT!!! At the end of the day this clips don’t matter. If you guys say that Rachel is amazing in Maisel i trust you. I also have watched some clips of the show and she’s really good.It seems her character and performance are way too complex to be judge by a one minute clip.

    Damn, I’m rooting for PWB but JLD and Brosnahan KILLED those clips. They always do one of my favs dirty in every one of these clip collections though, Christina had way better clips in that episode (even though it wasn’t a good submission anyways) and she deserves better.

    1. JLD
    2. Brosnahan
    3. PWB
    4. O’Hara
    5. Lyonne
    6. Applegate

    yeah, I’ll have to agree. We definitely can’t judge their works based on these clips. Rachel Brosnahan is pure perfection on Mrs Maisel and so is Christina Applegate on Dead To Me

    I’m not saying she’s winning but I feel like PWB is Damian Lewis and JLD is Bryan Cranston with Brosnahan as a strong spoiler.

    JLD has had arguably more press coverage and campaign with the multiple magazine covers, tv appearances and social media though. Didn’t really think PWB did more than the usual arranged for hot new talents.

    But I would agree that PWB is definitely the popular kid everybody wants to be friends with right now – in the last few days alone: Charlize Theron, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Richard Madden have all gone to her play.

    I don’t know how many times I’ve watched that JLD’s clip scene since May 12th. She is AMAZING in this. Brosnahan is good, but the clip is very bad. If we were to judge for it, she wouldn’t deserve even the nomination.  PWB’s clip is the S2 trailer … I liked the O’Hara clip. The Applegate clip is bad, but she is good is that series.

    Okay, let’s say Borstein & Hinkle vote split, same with Clifford & Colman, McKinnon has been rewarded, they’re done with her, Gilpin is not in a series nominee. We have Goldberg and Chlumsky. Goldberg kinda feels coattail, while Chlumsky is on her 6th nom. Could we finally experience a Chlumsky win? Ik there’s not really passion for her and she didn’t have the material but maybe her passionate fans of the acting branch are enough to give her the win? And it’s their last chance to reward her.

    Can someone explain this clip thing to me? Are the Emmys no longer doing episode submissions for the acting nominees? Just clips from an episode?

    Bill Hader flew to London to see PWB in Fleabag this week. He is a massive Fleabag fan and has talked it up so much. I’d love to see them work together.

    Bill Hader mentioned in an interview recently that he wants to focus more on dialogue for Season 3 of Barry and said that Fleabag was a good inspiration for dialogue. He also said that he starts writing Season 3 next week so he probably got some extra inspiration by seeing the show. A lot of writers do that.

    Julia is just on a league of her own. Rachel Brosnahan is also incredible and so is Waller- Bridge.
