Why? I mean she was literally being talked about on the afternoon edition of the two big news broadcasters here in the UK (BBC and Sky although the latter isn’t really a surprise when they produced the show) when it was released, the buzz for her television return is high (which is probably because of how big a staple on British TV she was in the noughties and early 10s), as I mentioned people like Edgar Wright and Lily James have raved about her and the show and if BAFTA nominate Piper for a mediocre performance in a show everyone forgot about then why won’t they give her the win for her career best performance in a show EVERYONE in the industry is watching.
I just think that with the voting system BAFTA use, Piper isn’t able to beat Coel. Coel has more prestige in the industry, the subject matter her show tackles is arguably more important (though of course I Hate Suzie is also topical), and IMDY is more of a feat given that Michaela wrote/directed/produced it. While the panel will obviously be voting on acting for that category, this will probably influence their decision as well.
For Your Consideration:

I just logged onto my NowTV account (the streamer I Hate Suzie airs on in the UK) and its still the number one trending thing on there ahead of Lovecraft Country, Perry Mason, Succession and Grey’s Anatomy (which is a populist hit here)??
This show is so (at the very least) near sweeping the BAFTAs.
FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).September 6, 2020 at 8:17 am #1203689165
USA . I was stating that Hulu May be a possibility too . But I agree that Showtime it’s more likely . Specially since they have very few content right now due to shutdown . They are even airing british We Hunt Together at the moment
Showtime actually makes so much sense, the sensibilities of Suzie is just like their early 2010s female dramedies.
Non-spoiler but the shoe shop scene in episode 7 is the funniest thing I’ve seen all year.September 6, 2020 at 10:55 am #1203689421
I had no idea this scene was that long. She’s so winning that BAFTA. Move over Daisy Edgar-Jones and Michaela Coel!

Not to boast or anything but the show is literally on no.78 on IMDB’s most popular shows (ahead of Watchmen and just below Perry Mason!). I hope if this goes on Netflix or Hulu it will at the very worst end up like Bodyguard at the Emmys (Series and Writing nomination) because it is a fantastic show that seems to be really popular in the UK and it seems to have very organic buzz.
Like I said before and whilst I was a bit over the top before I don’t see Billie loses the BAFTA. I think I May Destroy You will win Series there but the amount of individual buzz for Piper here is equivalent to Mescal and Haas at the Emmys.

Any word on an airdate for the U.S.? I saw Billie Piper live in Yerma when the production moved to New York for a limited run, and she honestly gave the best female acting performance I have ever seen. And no, I do not say that lightly and without major consideration of everything I’ve seen.September 14, 2020 at 10:29 am #1203705464
Nope but I will tell you she is phenomenal in this too. She’s being tipped for awards on this side of the pond like she was for the theatre awards for Yerma!September 14, 2020 at 4:27 pm #1203706428
Australian here. It’s on Stan for us. Will be watching in the next couple of weeks. Love Billie!!September 14, 2020 at 5:18 pm #1203706586
Oh I didn’t know it was on in Australia already? Would you say it has buzz there (it has huge buzz for a programme on Sky which is like the UK equivalent of cable here)?
What episode are you on as well?September 14, 2020 at 5:45 pm #1203706727

I haven’t started it yet. Honestly I only get my news on what to watch from this site, so I can’t say when it came out or whether it has buzz. I saw people talking about it here, I like Billie Piper and searched for it on Stan – hey presto it was there! Stan will also be screening PEN15 same day as US. As our colonial and cultural overlords, British TV is huge in Australia so it’s not a surprise, and Billie is well known here, particularly from Doctor Who.
I pay literally no attention to entertainment media or commercial media (hence how I heard about Stateless from UNHCR, not from Australian media). I am a terrible barometer. But my friends all come to me for hot tips – so GD has a far greater influence than entertainment advertising!September 14, 2020 at 5:54 pm #1203706777

Yeah.It’s interesting how many shows you get down there. I have relatives who live there who watch Eggheads (and for those Americans who don’t know what that is it’s a British afternoon intellectual game show).September 17, 2020 at 9:25 am #1203712691
https://t.co/6hxmTvxNfv Jodie Comer a fan of the show and praises billies performance
Just saying British performances Jodie Comer has praised tend to have been nominated at the Emmys (*coughs* Sian Clifford, Paul Mescal *coughs*)September 17, 2020 at 9:36 am #1203712732

She also praised many times I May Destroy You.
I hope next year her magic “awards-prediction-powers” will work with this show too.October 9, 2020 at 6:57 am #1203768443
