    Hi guys! I know that this has probably been discused many times, but I have a question.

    I’ve been watching Weeds and I’ve finished season 2… I never thought MLP was gonna be so good playing Nancy Botwin. So my question is… do you agree with MLP submission for season 2?

    She submitted the fifth episode (where she had a fight with the father of Silas’ gf)… and for me she should have submitted the season finale…

    And I think she and Elizabeth Perkins should have submitted each other’s episodes: EP was amazing in the episode MLP submitted (
    Mrs. Botwin’s Neighborhood ¨the scene “Please! Be my friend” was awesome)… and MLP was outstanding in the season finale (which was submitted by EP)… the last scene was fantastic and the expression in her face when Silas hung up on her was priceless…

    Just for curiosity I wanted to know if you think the same as me…

    Season 2 was the strongest season. ‘No Man is Pudding’, I believe was the episode title that should have been submitted by both actresses. Perkins was stellar throughout the season but was always difficult to pinpoint one episode. MLP had an even more killer episode much later on, ‘Boomerang’ but I won’t spoil anything for you.. Enjoy the show!

    If Parker was nominated this year (which would have been more deserving than Laura Linney, Melissa McCarthy and Edie Falco, in that order) and submitted “Boomerang” she would’ve whooped up on the other ladies.

    I’ve just checked that “No man is pudding” is the 4.05 episode, so you might be confusing seasons; but MLP didn’t submit that episode either.

    I always wondered why she was snubbed in ’09 and last year… (and it’s a shame since she will probably be snubbed again next year, but well… hope she comes back like Debra Messing did after being snubbed in ’04 and ’05 and coming back in ’06.. but I don’t think that’s gonna happen)

    @Tebow, yes, I remembered someone saying this year that the Emmys nominated the two wrong Showtime ladies (they should’ve nominated Collette and MLP instead of Falco and Linney)…

    Collette is one of my favorite actresses — I think she’s beautiful and more talented than 95% of working actresses today, but even I have to believe that she was not Emmy worthy for this (final) season of United States of Tara. Parker should have been the only Showtime lady nominated.

    No Man is Pudding was the episode that should have won it for her as well as Boomerang. I think Mrs Botwin’s Neighborhood was a good one, but the finale had a lot of impact. I just looked over the eppy list, it has been many years now since season 2! The first season she submitted The Punishment Light to the old Emmy panels when she should have sent the Pilot and resulted in a snub. The third season she had a good tape I remember, I really want to spoil but I won’t and I can’t fir the life of me remember which it was! She submitted a charming, comedic one (which GD was unsupportive of) and again, lost.

    I disagree Tebow, Collette did a fantastic job in the 3rd season of USoT, and she should’ve been nominated.

    Yes, the season finale was great. And it has a 8.9 rating in IMDB (the highest-rated episode of the whole show) 

    Do you think MLP can return to the category? Any chance? or her chances are 0%?

    Not for the eligible season of Weeds, no.

    MLP would or should have won if nominated last season for Boomerang.

    I can see her getting nominated for the final season of Weeds if the Lead Actress category is weak.  If the final season is hyped enough and there is a great payoff / finale as seasons two and three, she could have a shot.

    I anticipate Weeds season 8 to be the final season, and it doesn’t look like the Comedy Lead Actress race is going to be weakening up anytime soon, unless Showtime randomly disappears from the space-time continuum. For all we know, they could have Meryl Streep lined up to play a female jail warden who becomes friends with an inmate played by Michelle Williams (a.k.a. Emmy bait at its finest).

    It was. Jenji Kohan knows how to get her show renewed:

    Season 5 to Season 6 was not secure, so she had a cliffhanger that everybody in their right mind (including the Showtime reps) had to know the resolution to. Whataya know…season 6.

    Season 6 was higher rated so a renewal for 7 was secure. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t a brilliant cliffhanger to make it a lock.

    At the end of season 7, we can only assume that Nancy gets shot. Whataya know…season 8 confirmed.

    I really wish she would have gotten in for the first season, because the range she shows in The Punishment Light should have garnered her a win.  Man, she’s amazing in this episode and that final scene – wow!

    I have to watch this episode. But I’m not sure about it. This was the year where Collette won and she submitted the Pilot. Very hard to beat in my opinion (I’m a hardcore Collette fan).
