    I just finished Little Fires Everywhere and wow! I mean I didn’t like how they went for a melodramatic tone instead of going for a much darker I guess Sharp Objects esque tone (even though I usually like melodramas) but Reese and Kerry served! How on earth did Reese get snubbed for delivering one of the performances of the year?

    I’m officially rooting for Kerry to get her dues at the Emmys this year (sorry Cate and Regina)!

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    I never thought I’d be disappointed by a Reese snub but she truly deserved a nomination for LFE. She’s in good company this year though.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    I still think Regina King is a near-lock for Actress. She’s respected, already a three-time winner (for roles that she wasn’t considered the frontrunner) and is in the year’s most nominated show.

    Of course, there is always a possibility for an upset, but I’m not predicting that.

    I really wanted to like Little Fires Everywhere, but I thought it was boring and over-the-top. That includes the acting. If I were to nominate anyone, it would have been Reese. That being said, I would have nominated Merritt Wever (or Kaitlyn Dever) over either Kerry or Reese. I do agree that Regina is pretty much a guaranteed win, though Shira Haas could be an upset.

    I will never stop underlining that Kaitlyn Dever and especially Merritt Wever were criminally overlooked. I just find it so baffling.

    Yes I think Regina is close to a lock.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if anyone in that category (apart from Octavia Spencer) caused an upset though.

    Casting might be a decent litmus test.  There is enough there to justify a win, but the casting awards sometimes deviate, even when the frontrunner is strong.

    Editing might be a good litmus test for directing.  ACE only nominated the pilot, but “This Extraordinary Being” now has a chance to supplant it.  The vote-splitting between these two and “A God Walks into Abar” should be strong, but I also do not really see the alternatives El Camino and Mrs. America getting many votes at all.

    I have Watchmen winning fourteen awards, which would be a new record for most wins in a single year by a program in Emmy history.

    It’s truly her best performance, chile.

    I’d call her a lock if it weren’t for her winning so much recently, which makes me think that one of the other acclaimed performances could surprise, just because some voters might think they’ve rewarded her enough these past few years.

    But like I said, she’s close to a lock for me.

    Not happening, but I agree. Kerry delivered a career best. Queen of TV.

    I think King will win, but Blanchett is definitely still in the race.

    Have a great day if you see this!
