    Neflix campaign for WTSU is massive. No way will it underperform come Emmy night.

    Chernobyl and WTSU will likely win awards. Maybe not the ones you want, but both will prevail somewhere.

    that’s racist bc qualifiers are never applied to white content and performances.

    Agreed with this 100%

    White people win for mediocre performances ALL THE TIME, but I never see them getting crucified to the degree that people of colour (The hate for Sandra Oh this year immediately comes to mind) get crucified here by the same users (and we all know who they are, let’s be honest).

    And the infuriating part is, WTSU is not even mediocre by any yardstick – it’s one of the best shows of the year, brilliantly written, directed, AND acted, has a Metascore of 87, Rotten Tomatoes rating of 97%, and an IMDB rating of 9. But it’s being treated here in this thread by some people like it was Bohemian Rhapsody, and I can’t help but wonder if it got the same treatment, despite its quality and critical acclaim if it wasn’t for its cast and crew being predominantly black.

    I mean Sandra Oh is arguably the most overdue nominee this year, owing to her work on Grey’s Anatomy. And Lena Headey is also equally overdue owing to her great work on GOT. However, the same users who are advocating for Headey to win DESPITE her barely having anything to do in Season 8 largely because she is so overdue for a win are CRUCIFYING Oh because she will win largely because of being overdue and not necessarily her performance. They are hypocrites and they don’t apply the same standards to POC as they do to their favorite white actresses like Headey.

    I think Chernobyl wins most of the main prizes and When They See Us will be rewarded with a win for Jerome. It could be the opposite where WTSU wins most of the awards and Chernobyl is rewarded with a win for Harris.

    Question for those who watched Chernobyl: how would you ranked the main three performances. In my mind Stellan has the best chance of winning but how does he rank against the other two?

    In order: Harris, Watson, Skarsgard. But he has the biggest performance of the 3 in terms of range. Harris and Watson are more subtle.

    Skarsgard, Harris, Watson. But mostly cause I think there is no frontrunner in Skarsgard’s category.

    Personally love Harris’ performance a hair more cause Skarsgard has a more traditional character arc where he can go big at key moments. Harris’ role is slightly tougher cause his character is so repressed but Harris constantly and authentically conveys an undercurrent of distress and conflict in him; his microexpressions are amazing. Watson is solid but not given as much to do as the other 2 who also have the enemies turn to friends arc to play with.

    Skarsgard is very, very good, I was consistently impressed by him throughout. Whereas Harris grated at times being a bit bombastic, although he was stunning in the final episode, with great direction and script. Watson is fine but I found myself disengaged in her scenes. I’d be very happy to see a Skarsgard win but also liked Michael K Williams a lot in the earlier episodes of WTSU. Big year for the Skarsgard boys.

    Objectively speaking, Chernobyl is the better series

    Also I see it winning neither writing (Chernobyl’s was just awe inspiring) nor directing (maybe I’m biased here but I don’t think Ava deserves or directing branch likes her that much).

    Directing is a tough one for me – on one hand, DuVernay directed excellent performances from her cast. On the other hand, Renck brought to life scenes of immense scale, with many extras and moving parts. They both got the tension sky high. But the one thing WTSU failed to do was get the protests and reaction scenes right, I just don’t think the historical outrage (from all sides) was captured well enough, because I remember it worse than she could portray. Whereas Chernobyl came close to capturing the fear we felt and the magnitude of the disaster. I think I’ve just answered my own question.

    It’s been almost three months now since Fosse/Verdon ended and I still keep thinking about Michelle Williams’s performance. Does anyone else think it’s wild that she was able to nail the dancing, singing, mannerisms and voice of Verdon all while being able to convey the emotions needed from her in any given scene. It’s truly a remarkable performance, you don’t see even see Williams in it. Poor Rockwell, he was genuinely good too but Williams just wipes the floor with him. If she doesn’t win come Emmy night, I’ll riot (unless it’s because Amy upset since I think she’s just as deserving).

    I loved Sharp Objects, but I truly believe it’ll be Arquette or Williams. Hoping for Williams, allowing Arquette to take Supporting for the tremendous year on television she had. Although never discount Patricia, as I would not be surprised if she took both.

    For the record, montana82 has enthusiastically endorsed BOTH Sandra and Lena for victory this year. 😃
