Many people on here (including if I’m not mistaken Riley) have said either that her performances was her career best or at the very least better than her Oscar winning performance.
I think that I was more reporting on what others had said in comparison to I, Tonya or could have said as opposed to agreeing with that assessment necessarily myself.August 16, 2020 at 10:49 pm #1203649750
Not you virtue signaling, masked in coming for a person you don’t agree with, then doing digital blackface! Hashtag I hate it here.August 16, 2020 at 11:19 pm #1203649775
The combination of Limited Series and movies complicates submissions, as some contenders are episodic while others aren’t. Thus, Lead Actors submit the entire project to engage with the fact that TV Movie contenders cannot submit an episode. Thus comparing this category to drama/comedic which are inherently episodic doesn’t work. Because Limited Series tell an entire story, it makes sense to reward someone for helming that complete project, and to be honest both sides have benefits. Being nominated for an entire series is logistically more impressive, but focusing on one episode allows voters to pinpoint a win-worthy achievement.
I think you misunderstand me. I’m saying Comedy Directing and Drama Directing are nominated on an episodic basis. Whereas with Series Directing you have the whole effort of Unorthodox being pitted against Watchmen, which has a 3 in 5 chance of winning against a show which is being judged on 4 episodes submitted as a whole. It’s apples and oranges within the same category. A series with a single director is being judged more harshly (higher output makes it harder to achieve consistent excellence) with fewer nominations for the show, whereas Watchmen has effectively a 12 times higher chance of winning directing (3 directing noms multiplied by Unorthodox needing excellence over 4 episodes).
In the acting categories, they just need to get rid of TV Movie; it distorts the acting categories with a 1.5 hour performance pitted against 12 or so hours of other actors. Especially considering “TV movie” is the only way we’ll be watching actual movies in the coming couple of years.August 17, 2020 at 9:16 pm #1203651835

I know “This Extraordinary Being” is the front-runner of Best Directing but do you think that could have a vote-splitting beetween the Watchmen episodes and other series wins? If yes, which series could win?
I was thinking in Unorthodox because has Best Limited Series (while Normal People hasn’t) and Best Casting (while Little Fires Everywhere hasn’t) nominations but I’m not sure.August 18, 2020 at 1:02 pm #1203653026
In that situation, I would predict a sympathy vote for Lynn Shelton.August 18, 2020 at 7:00 pm #1203653801
I think Lynn Shelton really could win. And, though I didn’t like Little Fires Everywhere, I admire her work and this would be a great way to honor her.August 18, 2020 at 11:39 pm #1203654104
If ever the three Watchmen directors will vote-split (and it is very likely since any of them there can arguably win), the one who would benefit has to be Lynn Shelton. There’s a narrative and she did a great job on directing LFE anyway. She would deserve it.

Yeah I absolutely agree with you all on Lynn Shelton. This nomination is a tribute to her so I think if anyone benefits from the split is her. I think people have been reading too much into the Casting snub because I think when the directors branch were voting it feels like they were more voting for Lynn than Little Fires Everywhere.

I mean she’s playing Shirley Chisholm and as I said before when you say the name Shirley Chisholm in conversation its more likely that people know who she is than pretty much any of the non Steinem feminists in Mrs. America. I think with Mrs. America in acting, the comparisons between Hollywood and it are flawed.

Terrific as always
