    Qualley was really great in a sequence in episode 8 and was mostly a quiet but emotive presence throughout the rest of the series so i don’t consider her nomination undeserved, but why the hell would they choose that clip?

    They should have chose her audition scene.

    Darlings, the Prime Minister just changed her mind in Best Actor. Soviet Harris is winning! I just had a vision.

    Harris deserves this in a cakewalk.

    Emotional manipulation, I feel, exists in all media. A little bit of it doesn’t hurt anybody and certainly helps to get a point across and reach a bigger audience. But when a story is intense, sensitive and emotional enough already, over manipulation in direction can become overtiring to watch.

    What is the right amount then?  Hard to say. It is so unquantifiable and subjective. How much is acceptable depends on whoever watches that media. I don’t see a problem if you think one or another is overly dramatic. Because it is not the story that we are arguing about here, both Chernobyl and Central Park Five are important stories that need to be known and told to everyone, it’s the way they are told that’s what I’m talking about here. It’s just how the pieces interact with you artistically.

    To me, at least. I feel both WTSU and Chernobyl are directed and written in a way that is emotionally manipulative in an acceptable amount. Straightforward enough and not overly sensationalised.

    Tokyo Story is an example of a film totally devoid of manipulation. I’ve never met anyone who has seen it and thought there was an ounce of emotional manipulation in the way the story was told. It’s very difficult to explain how the director and the writers achieves it beyond that they tell the story as straightforward as possible. And the result is SUBLIME. I haven’t seen much of that kind of storytelling these days as it is pretty difficult to achieve and a choice that people in show business won’t risk anymore.

    I predicted Jerome and I wish him the best for his bright future too. But m’am, Harris winning would make my day!

    I happened to watch him in the Terror earlier this year. And how he got snubbed for that phenomenal performance last year as Captain Francis is beyond me. Probably the same way I feel about the Haunting of the Hill House getting no love this year, I guess.

    Same here watched The Terror cause he was so stunning in Chernobyl and I can’t handle him not being rewarded for his work in either of those projects let alone both.

    I think he displayed a full spectrum of human emotional experience with Crozier. His character arc in the Terror is just *chef’s kiss*. The acting matched that journey perfectly and brilliantly.

    Alas, he is unfortunate that this year, with his work in Chernobyl, there are many actors in this category who gave equally brilliant performances deserving of an Emmy.

     

    EDIT: Just wanted to add that I saw the Buzzfeed poll and I was so happy to see Asante Blackk love is strong. Of all the WTSU cast, his performance shook me most. It was heartbreaking, natural and innocent. I hope he overcomes the vote split between his co stars and get what he deserves.

    TBH i think this is one of the worst selections of clips that i’ve seen so far. Apart from Michelle and Niecy, all of the others had MUCH better scenes than this. Although Michelle also had other equally fantastic scenes. Anyway, here my ranking:

    1. Michelle Williams (PURE PERFECTION!!!)
    2. Niecy Nash (She’s SO good in this!!! She would have won SActress in a blink of an eye!!!)
    3. Patricia Arquette
    4. Amy Adams (She deserves better than this clip!!!)
    5. Aunjanue Ellis
    6. Joey King (HORRIBLE CLIP!!! WHO CHOOSES THIS CLIPS???!!! BECAUSE THIS IS ATROCIOUS!!! Where’s her mirror scene when she has no teeth?!)

    Joey King is still amazing in this clip. you all like to forget that she does not behave, talk and move like that in real life, I think that they did not choose their teeth scene or something more dramatic, because she would have been the obvious MVP between the sixth of them. My ranking:

    Michelle Williams
    Joey King
    Niecy Nash
    Patricia Arquette
    Amy Adams
    Aunjanue Ellis

    And what would be the problem with that?! In this clips i like to see the actors best scenes or some of their best. King’s clip doesn’t even come close to her best on the show. And though i still think she’s good in it, i find the other clips slightly better.

    Michelle has best clip (by far!!!) and yet that’s not her best scene either. Her best scene was when she talked on the phone with Fosse after her surgery.

    The best thing about these clips is they show in a nutshell what a remarkable time it is for women’s roles in television. These are all award-worthy.

    But this year, Michelle FTW!
