    Does this have any chance, and I mean ANY chance to get some Emmy love this year?

    I think it has a very strong chance. Even though season one didn’t get nominated, I think that word of mouth has grown a LOT, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge has gotten a lot more love from mainstream audiences and has become a much more familiar name (Solo, 73 Questions with Vogue, various talk shows, etc). I definitely wouldn’t be surprised if she popped up on nomination morning. However, other than maybe a writing nom (for PWB of course), I don’t think it really has a chance in other categories.

    An immaculate season of television. Phoebe Walker-Bridge really did all of fucking that, huh?! The show just scaled to new heights this season but made the return worthwhile while sending Fleabag and the cast of characters around here out on the right note. PWB was hilarious and heartbreaking and shocking and sincere and captivating and…well, you get it. I did not really know the general plot going into the season, so needless to say, I was not expecting Andrew Scott to come in and completely knock me out as well. PWB and Scott’s chemistry was off the charts, but every beat of their story felt earned and deserved and just right, even if it’s not what you (as the viewer) wanted. I could watch a million more episodes of the two of them just walking and talking. It’s a testament to their brilliant performances and PWB’s writing. The rest of the ensemble was really great as well, especially Sian Clifford and Olivia Colman (you just look at her now, post-Oscars/“The Favourite” and just kinda marvel, huh?). Sincerely loved this season, cannot wait to watch it again, and just genuinely thrilled to see the next move PWB makes.

    I am actually predicting Waller-Bridge to get that very deserving Emmy nomination for three reasons:

    1. She was ABSOLUTELY stunning in season 2, and season 2 was even better than season 1, something which I thought wasn’t possible. I think Fleabag will go down in history as one of the finest shows to have ever graced Television.

    2. Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s name recognition has shot up. Besides people having caught up on season 1 of Fleabag in the last two years, Killing Eve has also made her a more recognizable name in the industry. Her profile has gone up as well.

    3. Her name will be the first name that pops up for half of the ballots, which has to help her case.

    I kind of envy you now for getting to binge the whole season.

    It hurts to realize that something like The Kominsky Method will obtain more votes than this show. It should seriously sweep.

    I want to talk about how much I loved this show but honestly words wouldn’t even do it justice. What a great fucking show and even if it doesn’t get nominated for anything, i’m confident it’s going down in the history books.

    Finished the second season a couple days ago and forgot to post about it. I have absolutely no words. PWB stepped up her game again this season, in both writing and acting. Sian Clifford was PHENOMENAL, and while Olivia Colman is deliciously great, Clifford should be the one getting the supporting nods from the show. That ending absolutely broke my heart. That little head shake and the wave as she walked away… just perfection. Thank you PWB for this masterpiece. Whenever I’m in a writing rut, I’ll constantly turn to this show for inspiration. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    I totally agree about Sian Clifford. She completely owned this role, and while Colman was delicious as always, Clifford was absolutely perfect and should be getting awards attention.

    This show definitely did not go where I thought it would but I enjoyed every second of it. I’m sad to see it go but the ending was perfect. I’ll miss this show.

    Have faith. Let’s be honest. Goldderby has some very vocal voices that have been steering people in the wrong direction the last couple of big shows. (IE. Glenn Close/Olivia Colman, Elisabeth Moss/Ann Dowd losing to Claire Foy/Thandie Newton, etc).

    I think Goldderby is wildly off base on the comedy acting nominations this year. Especially in the “filler nominations” after the obvious choices from Maisel, Veep, Barry.

    I think Fleabag has some passion that can get it some big nominations. We’ll see.

    Been bingeing this and now only have two episodes left. What a marvelous series. It’s utterly depressing, yet I can’t stop laughing. A magisterial achievement in setting tone, then shifting it on a dime.

    Deserves nods for series, writing, directing, actress, supporting actress (MVP Sian Clifford) and guest actress (Kristin Scott Thomas, whose scene in the bar about women’s pain was a masterful piece of writing delivered by a consummate pro).

    ETA: Realized I had Sian Phillips instead of Clifford, lol.

    Sooo agree with you re Kristen Scott Thomas. Ultimate guest performance.

    Also, I’m so in love in Sian Phillips, I know Olivia will probably get a nom for this, and she is obviously great, but Sian, even is s.1 was always the one that made the biggest impression on me.

    Sis you were stronger than me, I was a weak sobby bitch all through the parting even knowing what was going to happen, and then they kicked me while I was down for the last scene… I’m not ready to say goodbye
