    What do people think about the comedy stunts category? GLOW is obviously the frontrunner, but I’m wondering if Barry has a chance because of ronny/lily.

    Barry is the frontrunner for stunts IMO. I feel like “Ronny/Lily” locked them in for that award. Wade Allen, who choreographed the stunts for Barry is one of the most well-respected stuntmen in the industry. However, this race is pretty neck-to-neck. Shauna Duggins, the Glow stunt coordinator, also is very well-respected. She and Wade Allen have actually worked together in the past.

    News from Ireland – The Good Place successfully defended its Hugo Award in Dramatic Presentation: Short Form as Janet(s) won. In an ideal world, that would give its chances in writing a boost. But we are far from an ideal world, aren’t we? Still, a formidable consolation prize for when the show gets shut out next month.

    Just finished Fleabag. I still think Barry’s gonna win, but I would be overjoyed if Fleabag took it. Waller-Bridge is pretty much a lock in writing, but I still think JLD will win  best actress. I adored Olivia Colman’s work and I think it’s gonna translate to an Emmy win, even though I personally believe Sian Clifford should take it. I really wish she got in at the GoldDerby awards, I’d have voted for her. Also, as someone who loves the performances of Tony Hale, Henry Winkler, Stephen Root, and Anthony Carrigan, I would’ve nominated Andrew Scott over all of them this year (I still think Tony Shalhoub should win, and I’ve only seen an episode of Alan Arkin’s show). I really hope that there’ll be a third season at some point, cause this show really is wonderful. While the end of season 2 could work as a series finale, I believe that there’s enough left to make another season.

    Andrew Scott and Stephen Root were the two best supporting actor performances this year IMO. I was bummed by his snub but I wasn’t surprised. Fleabag is a very female-centric show. Not that they are even in the same category but Fiona Shaw getting a nomination over him was garbage. I actually think Brett Gelman also deserved a nomination as the despicable Martin in Fleabag. I guess voters just liked the male performances in Barry more.

    Hey, dah-ling Artist Currently Known as Le Suck, educate yourself. Google Hugo Awards Wikipedia and learn a thing about the most important awards in the science fiction book and entertainment genre.

    Fiona Shaw was good in her scene, but nothing particularly impressive. It’s not a very long moment, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge did most of the heavy lifting in it. I personally loved Kristen Scott Thomas’ guest spot. If she had a bit more to do, I think she could’ve won. I also thought Scott’s snub could’ve been due to the show being more female-centric. Really is a shame he wasn’t recognized. I thought he gave such a heartwarming, lovable, and hilarious performance. No other character on the show made me smile as much as The Priest. Having such a genuinely nice person on this dark show was a true breath of fresh air. While I wouldn’t have nominated Brett Gelman (My ideal set of nominees would’ve been the same as the actual list, except with Scott replacing Arkin), I believe both he and Bill Paterson are criminally underrated. Gelman really surprised me with just how utterly loathsome he was this season. It was a testament to the writing and his acting that even when Martin looks absolutely heartbroken near the end, I still couldn’t feel much sympathy for him because his prior actions were just so disgusting. Meanwhile, Patterson gives a very quiet and subtle performance that just breaks my heart. It wasn’t showy, but it was very affecting. And of course, both of them brought wonderful comedic timing to their characters.

    I usually don’t want to get involved in conflict, but calling other users juvenile names is pathetic.

    What people can’t seem to grasp is that the Performers branch will not have best writing on their computer screens on their voting ballots. The only place they will see PWB nominated is in Actress and the ONLY place they can vote for her is in Actress. They will not leave it up to the writers to award her if they have no idea she’s nominated there. And why would they leave it up to them? If they feel PWB should win Actress they will vote for her as there it’s their only chance to vote for her on their ballot. Also this is PWB last shot just like JLD.

    I guess we’ll see. But this board lacks balls. Not even entertaining some upsets. Thankfully last year in this new system the voters proved they had some.

    I personally feel like she plays herself and I’m not a big fan of her crying scenes.

    Ok I have a bone to pick with this argument that I realized when everyone was saying Lyonne was the weak part of the line up because she’s playing a version of herself. None of Brosnahan, JLD, PWB, or Lyonne (haven’t seen enough of the others) have characters that are real departures from the actors accents/mannerisms/movements, and their acting is still pretty great across the board. With Lyonne specifically, she probably handled dramatic moments better than any other the other nominees, but just because she kept her token accent and swagger she’s kinda being dismissed, but everyone else is really in the exact same boat. None of these roles are transformative at all, so the “playing themselves” argument is moot.

    Even if they don’t have her anywhere else than Actress, why vote for her? She is NOT the best in her category. I’ll be deeply disappointed personally if she wins. She deserves her nomination, but if we’re naming names, Brosnahan continues to deliver a charming, electrifying performance, while JLD is simply stellar as Selina Meyer. Applegate delivered a complex, witty, funny and tragic performance, when O’Hara is teaching comedic acting lessons. And on and on. Phoebe’s name deserves to be among these names, but I’ll be honest, I personally feel like she plays herself and I’m not a big fan of her crying scenes.

    Jesus the goal post gets moved around on here so much.

    I correctly point out the performers branch will not even have the writing category on their computer screens when voting therefor will only have Actress to reward PWB and now you respond with your PERSONAL OPINION on each performance.

    Whatever. If I had a ballot I’d vote for O’Hara. But PWB is the CREATOR/WRITER/STAR of the comedy of the moment. She’s the only one who could beat JLD.
