    I love how revealing this thread has been about some users

    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.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    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.

    Objectively speaking, Chernobyl is the better series

    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.

    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.

    Wow…the truth…

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

    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.

    Darling, I wouldn’t mind Oh winning. I just think Emilia Clarke was a damn revelation in terms of acting this season and I loved her performance even though Disabled and Drowned’s writing was mediocre. The best performance is probably Viola Davis’ but she’s not winning anyways.

    The thing with Lena Headey is that even though the dumb writers gave her little to do, she outacted the rest of her co-stars in “The Bells”. I see no contradiction or racism, darling. Not in my case and not for most Headey supporters. We’re a nice cult. We will share her dildo with each other after she wins it. You should join us.

    Please. I am on record as having HATED Ozark and Sharp Objects and their casts are white toast. The sight of Meryl Streep makes me want to jump out a window these days. Shows with primarily white talent are trashed and criticized routinely around here. I am also on record advocating for wins for Billy Porter, Jharrel Jerome, Phylicia Rashad, and Angela Bassett this year. Not to mention I stick up for Sandra Oh who gets dissed all the time and would make history with a win. Apparently if you are sad at where Chernobyl seems to be heading Emmy night (goose egged) and point out how emotionally invested some people are in WTSU victory (ya’ll listen to Amanda and Erik yet?) you are racist or something. Pretty pathetic.

    It’s a commonly trotted out argument isn’t it, that if you don’t fawn over a black themed show or performer then you’re racist, it’s pathetic. I believe WTSU has been overrated and that this is primarily because of the injustice of what happened to the men involved. An exceptional story doesn’t mean the miniseries itself is exceptional, and people don’t seem to be able to tell the difference. Chernobyl had both, an intriguing plot and it was miles better production wise than WTSU.

    Thank you. Some of these members are absolute garbage

    I know the answer to this, but I wonder how When They See Us would be received around here if it didn’t have majority black talent behind the scenes.
