    The setting did wonders for the show especially after the flop Motion of no confidence. The season finale was epic and i finally could fathom that Succession is a great show and not just a soap opera about rich white people. Jeremy Strong truly came thru in those last two episodes. He is the true MVP followed by Sarah Snook.

    It’ll be interesting to see the show’s awards trajectory. Brian Cox is arguably the biggest name, but Strong has the better, showiest performance imo.

    I ended up watching this and I was actually in after the first two episodes, but then this just kept getting better and better, and holy shit you guys!! This was a great season. This cast is aces. I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite between Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong, Kieran Culkin and Sarah Snook. Hell, I even thought Nicholas Braun did a great job with what ended up being my favorite character. The sixth episode and the finale were game changers. This was just awesome and I wish there was more buzz around it. Shame on me for buying into the pre-premiere hype (or lack thereof), but I noticed the buzz picked up toward the end of the season, so my roommate and I gave it a go, and finished this in less than a week. If anyone needs me, I’ll be telling everyone I know to watch this show.

    Lol I just decided to search for this thread after seeing your profile pic on the “Oscars 2019: Adapted and Original Screenplay” thread. I just started watching this show. I’m up to episode 4 (which is my favorite episode so far) and I’m really liking this series. Greg is my favorite character and I love the scenes between him and Tom. I hate how mean Tom is to Greg but I still find Tom likeable for some reason lol. Matthew McFadyen plays the character so well. The character I despise the most is Roman. Kieran Culkin is doing such a great job as Roman that I’m starting to wonder if he’s actually just playing himself lol.

    Do we have any insight into category placement for the actors? I don’t necessarily expect it to pick up much traction there but, having just finished the series (late, I know), it is top of mind.

    Strong is the true lead IMO but I imagine he will go supporting in favor of Cox?

    There is a lot of strong supporting work so it may be difficult support to coalesce around one candidate – the Culkin and Macfayden nods at CC and Globes suggest they are strongest I suppose.

    I will have to reassess when the full field of contenders is clearer but writing and directing seems like strong bets as of now.

    I would imagine Cox and Strong both go lead with everyone else in the main cast supporting. Cox is the wildcard though. I don’t see them all going supporting. That wouldn’t be effective strategy on HBO’s part.

    I’d like to see Snook and Culkin nominated in supporting.

    Finally watched this. It’s brilliant!! Enjoyed each and every episode, the finale was the best episode and Jeremy Strong gave a compelling performance in it. Kieran Culkin is my favorite of the cast followed by Mathew Macfadyen. Their characters are my favorites too! I hope this has a strong showing at the Emmys.

    Finished watching the first season. Roman, Stewy, and Nate might be the most annoying characters I’ve ever seen on television. As the season progressed the show evolved to be a combination of Shakespearean tragedy, Veep, and Gosford Park (which worked). Also, I’m surprised that they went with lead for Sarah Snook, though wouldn’t be surprised to see both Jeremy Strong and Brian Cox snagging nominations just like Ed Harris & Jeffrey Wright last year.
