    She’s, like, the most lovable psychopath ever.

    Are these guys real here? Clarke is playing a paranoid woman who’s mental condition is deteriorating day by day. Of course her reaction will not be what you’d expect from a normal person.

    Davis’ performance is loud, not OTT  and there’s nothing wrong with that since it is what her show and the script demands.

    Moore overreacting? I guess you’ve never met a grief-stricken person then.

    You wanna know a OTT and overreacted performance? That’s Laura Dern in Big Little Lies, who this forum couldn’t stop praising to high heavens. If y’all have a problem with the above performances then I better not see you rooting for Dern next year. Be less obvious people.

    no one, and I mean no one, uses the f bomb more effectively than Linney lol

    Accurate lol. Each time she used it it provided an additional 10 years of life.

    I agree that Laura Dern in Big Little Lies is parody and walking meme.

    Agreed. I don’t know about voters but I want a bit of levity in my Drama. I can imagine watching those submissions and going “you know what? I’m going to go for the loveable psychopath who does all the accents.

    Isn’t Renata supposed to be kind of over dramatic though? I thought Dern played her amazingly.

    I agree, but he uses it way often in his roles that it’s sort of becoming really annoying.

    I can’t believe people would think otherwise. That’s how Renata is written!! She’s supposed to be OTT and dramatic – and I live for that.

    Accurate lol. Each time she used it it provided an additional 10 years of life.

    Ohhh I think Claire Danes is up there with Linney. Crazy Carrie gives me life sometimes.

    Yeah, Dern is pitch perfect as Renata. There’s literally no other way to play her.

    Occasionally, yes, but no person acts the way she did this season. There’s a clear difference between S1 Renata and S2 Renata. The first one is an accurate depiction of a person like her, the second one is a hammy version of her that has just become a parody at this point as someone mentioned. It’s sad people can’t see that. It’s not like that BLL is built to have OTT performances, like Empire. The rest of the performances on it are grounded and Renata sticks out like a sore thumb when she’s constantly acting like this.

    There’s literally no other way to play her.

    Yes there is and Dern has already played it in S1.

    The funny thing about Renata complaints is that those entitled, protective, wealthy, bitchy, somewhat crazy women very much exist lol particularly in rich communities like Monterrey so the whole “unrealistic” argument is pretty false.

    I agree that season 1 Renata was way less crazy and I think she had more emotional depth but season 2 Renata is even better, just for different reasons. Who cares if she isn’t grounded or realistic?

    The same people who ridiculed Davis as over the top? Or even Clarke and Moore. My point was people were being dismissive of other performances because of this reason yet have no problem hyping Dern. This hypocrisy is mostly because they weren’t on shows they like or they don’t like the actress.  I guess which is proven now.

    Imagine how bad How to Get Away With Murder would be if it was realistic.  Viola’s performance is exactly what the show needs.
