    It really is a shame because Williams and Arquette are both so, so good. Like possibly career best for both. But like the above said, maybe Arquette can win supporting (even though her performance in Dannemora is way better) and I can think of it as her winning for both haha and then Williams can win lead. Poor Amy Adams though

    Arquette already has an Emmy and an Oscar. Clarkson was way overrated anyway so if you want to give Patty a consolation win in supporting fine, but WHITE MICHELLE deserves the leading lady Emmy.

    I am hoping for WHITE MICHELLE in lead and if she’s good Vera Farmiga in Supporting. Both of these women are overdue for a top industry award. Patty has a ton of awards already.

    What I’m really enjoying/appreciating about this show is how much it relies on what really happened and when. I’m sure small details have gotten moved around, but so far everything’s happening in the right order, in the right year, every hospital stay, heart attack, break up, childbirth, affair, etc. is all happening at the correct time, during the correct production, with the correct people. Bob really did have that heart attack while he was doing lenny/chicago, and he really did check into the hospital at the end of his banner year. He and Gwen really did separate during the production of Cabaret, and Ann Reinking really was nominated for a tony the year before they did Chicago. They technically made up a boyfriend for Gwen in the sense that it’s not an exact person, but the age difference to the career to even the way they met is accurate to Gwen’s real life most significant relationship after Bob. I know it shouldn’t really be that much but considering how often biopics move stuff around, put stuff at the same time when they really occurred years apart, switch up the order, it’s really fun to check the dates after each episode and see they all track. Really shows how dramatic and fascinating the ups and downs of their lives really were.

    I wouldn’t pretend to have had much knowledge about Bob Fosse or Gwen Verde prior to this series. However, now that i’m three episodes in, I have just found their story that much more fascinating. Michelle Williams, thus far, is truly the star, and at the top of her game! She is delivering one hell of a performance!! She is DEFINITELY giving Patricia a big run for her money as frontrunner for the emmy, who I also found to be brilliant! What a great potential list of lead actress mini-series/tv movie nominees this is shaping up to be.

    Tonight’s Series Finale: Providence

    Synopsis: Gwen looks ahead to an uncertain future, as Bob tells the story of his life on film.

    Discuss!

    P.S.

    I’m currently in New York City for a couple days, and I just got back from seeing Chita Rivera perform at Feinstein’s 54 Below. She even got to talk about her experiences working with Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon.

    So sad to see this show go! It really did get better and better as the weeks went on, and what a finale that last episode was. The final scene was heartbreaking and Williams completely nailed it, as she did this entire series. I’m genuinely floored by her work here. It’s career best and she fully deserves the Emmy, Globe, SAG, and whatever else is left. Can’t believe she was able to pull off what she did. I really can’t say enough about it. Rockwell was also good throughout, as was Qualley with her limited screen time. But yeah, this was all Williams for me.

    Okay, bitches, should I watch it? Most people say it’s boring as hell but everyone praises Williams to the skies. I need someone to root for at the Emmys since none of my gurls is getting in.

    i couldn’t get into it tbh.

    The series itself got mostly favorable reviews from critics. I’d say go into it with an open mind, and form your own opinion.

    Finally finished this. Irregularly paced and generally inconsistent but not unentertaining. It didn’t seem to be able to decide whether it was aiming to emphasise Verdon’s role in Fosse’s life or just to note it.

    Michelle Williams, however. Every award.

    For Your GoldDerby Decade Awards Consideration:

    Downton Abbey in Series, Supporting Actress and Ensemble. Glee in Supporting Actress, Guest Actor and Guest Actress.

    Claire Foy and Lisa Kudrow in Drama and Comedy Actress respectively.
