Dunst was also phenomenal in the finale, possibly even better for her as a submission than “Loplop”. She had the wonderful freak-out scene about the smoke, plus the speech in the car.
I was also thinking the same thing. Dunst just owned this entire show. No one was better than her through the season and it’d be criminal if she lost the Globe and Emmy.
A very solid season. Not up to the brilliance of the first, but very solid and one of the best shows of 2015 no doubt. Aside from Dunst I’d maybe say Jean Smart is Emmy nom worthy (tho she didn’t really have much to do) and Plemons (tho I don’t know how he’s getting away with being pushed supporting). Everyone else was pretty strong.December 19, 2015 at 3:15 am #320075This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 24, 2015 at 6:20 am #320076
I still prefer season 1 but this season added 10 great-to-stellar episodes and it was a very good TV experience. Besides extraordinary pilot I prefer 2nd half of the season. Once they axed Brad Garrett and his team, the story became better. Kirsten Dunst is easily the standout of this talented cast.
I liked “Fargo 1” way much more than “True Detective 1” but this year it’s not even fair to compare both installments.January 2, 2016 at 10:15 am #320077
Just finished (finally) the season last night. I don’t know exactly what to say, other than this might be the best show we’ve seen on television since Breaking Bad left our screens in 2013.January 2, 2016 at 11:28 am #320078
Just started today. 2 episodes in. Intrigued.January 2, 2016 at 11:54 am #320079
I prefer The Leftovers’s season 2, but Fargo’s season 2 is the best example of how good television can be. Masterpiece.January 2, 2016 at 12:09 pm #320080
I prefer The Americans and The Leftovers in terms of storyline to Fargo, BUT Fargo is the best MADE TV show of 2015 (cinematography, soundediting and so on). Its a shame that they didnt get an ensemble nom at the SAG.January 5, 2016 at 9:52 am #320081
^^Very true, that ensemble was so strong. But SAG didn’t nominate the show in any category, so…
If I was about to give the show its only nomination, it would be Kirsten Dunst.January 6, 2016 at 1:50 pm #320082

FX did not submit the ensemble although I agree it would have made an excellent nominationJanuary 6, 2016 at 4:27 pm #320083
Yeah, let’s not act like it really had any chance with SAG anyway… And FX only didn’t submit in ensemble. The actors were all eligible.
I will echo that it was the best thing on TV in 2015. And I usually hate to go with the populist idea. Much better than the first. Never missed Bob Thornton’s and Freeman’s annoying and one dimensional presences.January 9, 2016 at 7:04 pm #320084
I’m an episode behind, but just had to give major props to Nick Offerman for “Rhinoceros”! What a tour-de-force; if this were a drama series and that were submitted for Guest Actor, it would be unbeatable.
I’m just bingewatching the season now. “Rhinoceros” was literally one of the best hours of tv I’ve ever seen, and THIS. Offerman deserves to win Guest Actor absolutely. That was a CRAZY good performance. Laugh out loud hilarious, while still being competent, and in a very tense episode. So good.
