    The funniest thing is that all the defenders of Sharp Objects are incapable of explaining why it was snubbed in both Directing and Writing if it is supposedly well liked, it is obvious that robbed English Scandal in Program due to the HBO power, that’s all that I am saying. And it is also a fact that Scanlen has zero nominations for her performance (even in awards without prestige) for a reason, she does not deserve it.

    How is this relevant to what we were saying? You used IMDb ratings to say Sharp Objects is not liked by the general public and we proved you wrong. So The Emmys snubbing it in some categories doesn’t prove your point of the show being disliked by regular viewers. Again, just say you don’t like Sharp Objects and stop there.

    And the Emmys snubbing The Haunting Of Hill House means it’s an awful show aswell, right?

    Disagree, the 8.4 of The Americans is far more difficult to achieve and it’s closer to 8.5 which is closer to 9, we are not speaking about college notes, every fraction is quite important, the example that someone gave with Big Little Lies and its 8.6 is inaccurate, 8.6 is an incredible score and it’s far higher than almost all the movies listed on IMDB.

    I agree, that’s true. Every fraction matters for imdb rating tho I wouldn’t really consider it that way, meaning 8.4 is closer to .5 and thus closer to 9. Yes 8.2 is closer to 8 but imo only shows 8.7 or 8.8 (and ofc 8.9) should be treated as nearly 9/10 shows. I feel like we’re studying basic math lol. But you get what I mean I hope. There are plenty of shows around 8.5 but very few 8.6-7 and over.

    Wait, why are we assuming that there’s any correlation between the academy and IMDb ratings?? Maybe the general audience liked Sharp Objects (hence the 8.2) but the academy didn’t. It’s writing & directing snubs prove that the show was fifth in limited series, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a well-liked show beyond Emmy voters. Lol, we know that people watched it until the end at least.

    EDIT: Writing and directing snubs may not even say that much about the overall appeal for a show at all: The Alienist was snubbed everywhere above the line except for in limited series, while Twin Peaks was snubbed in the series category but managed to snatch writing and directing nods.

    Emmy voters must bend the knee to Lena Headey & Emilia Clarke for "Game of Thrones." It's their last chance to award them. Make it happen.

    Counting the days to see Michelle Williams finally win a top industry award. 😌
    She has more potential than Arquette and Adams to triple-crown, she’s already Tony nominee.

    Actually, my original post never mentioned anything about users scores, it was entirely about HBO power – I do not see why no one is talking about this year mystery – how Sharp Objects managed to enter in Best Limited instead of A Very English Scandal when both of them managed to nominated only two actors, but the British and very strong show also has writing and directictin, while the American mediocre (you know my opinion about it, I would have nominated it only for Lead actress and nothing else) show has neither one of them? How this happened? HBO bias? Many people have spoked about it and maybe this is the confirmation – one of the replies coming from Reis was that Sharp Objects managed that due to the fact that was well liked in social media and I completely disagree, 8.2 on IMDB is low score, 81 on Rotten is also low score (already explained that I am referring to TV shows scores, not movies scores), the Facebook, Instagram and YouTube comments about it are mixed and there is a consensus that this story and book didn’t need 8 episode, but only 4, 5 or 6. Again, read everything before replying, now that you will se my original post, you will see that I already acknowledged that I do not like Sharp Objects very much, but I do not hate it either, I gave it 8 on IMDB, mostly because of Adams phenomenal performance. My original post was there due to HBO impressive power, very obvious this year, not to hate on the show, I never do that, I am here for interesting discussions.

    And since you asked me bout The Haunting Of Hill House, I think that the Emmys showed good taste since I liked it much less than Sharp Objects, for me a show full of bad performances (the other half are excellent, but that is not an excuse), a lack of bonding between the actors and filled with characters that I never felt like a real family for a single moment does not deserve awards. I also found the finale bland, predictable and cheesy. In general, I liked the first 5 episodes very much, they even scared me, but the other 5 were a huge fail for me.

    I already responded to the first part of your comment in my reply to Ginnala. And about that part I just do not find it as a good example, because like you have said many times last year Limited Series category were a desert, what happened to The Alienist is extremely rare. What happened to Twin Peaks is not that strange, it just proved that actors and producers disliked the show or did not cared about it. But what happened to Sharp Objects this year only proved that HBO has huge power.

    You are correct about the scores. And you all make me really hyped about Williams and F/V, I hope to be able to see it very soon. I also think that this might be her year.

    does anyone else agree that HBO made a grave mistake releasing Sharp Objects when they did?

    It aired just outside of last year’s eligibility and now the buzz is completely non existent and no one really predicts it to win anything, except maybe Clarkson. In my view it really underperformed in nominations too, at least in comparison to how I enjoyed it. I mean it looks completely normal to us that Valee is not nominated for directing the series, but now it occurred to me it’s really weird, at least in my view . IMO it was still the best miniseries of this years window and I’d vote for it, I think they made a mistake releasing it when they did

    FYC: Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones") for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Miguel Sapochnik (“Game of Thrones”) for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series

    Yeah it’s pretty consensus that last year it would’ve taken Actress and probably Supporting Actress in a cake walk and would’ve been competitive for directing and series. Also Scanlen would’ve probably gotten in. HBO had higher hopes for Dern and The Tale, but I think the lesson to be learned there (and with Deadwood this year) is that people just really don’t give a damn about TV movies anymore.

    I think that there is consensus about that actually.

    I think Sharp Objects will be shut out. It is old news now, I think it will passed up by Chernobyl, When They See Us, and Fosse/Verdon.

    Patricia Clarkson will prevent that.

    If it was Adams I’d have no problem. But Clarkson? For acting like she was gonna pass out due to the heat of Wind Gap for 8 episodes? No thanks. Arquette better win this one.
