    I didn’t finish season 3, can anyone give me an unbiased opinion on Moore’s nomination? Is it completely a make-up for her atrocious snub last year, or did she warrant it for season 3 as well? Foy or Russel needed to win last year, but honestly if Moore had been nominated and won I wouldn’t have been disappointed.

    Make-up. The main thrust of this season was Jack’s Vietnam arc, secondary to that was Randall/Beth, and the other arcs last (Nicky, Kate’s pregnancy, Toby’s depression, Kevin’s addiction, etc.). Rebecca was mostly reacting to EVERYTHING all season long. Nothing against Mandy Moore, who nailed everything given to her and landed her first Emmy nomination. However, after all the bait given to her in season 2, it’s hard to imagine that snubbing her then didn’t have a residual effect now. The acting branch is clearly watching this show, so continuing to nominate Milo and Sterling means that they’re seeing Mandy all the time. Better late than never.

    Completely deserved and zero make-up. Rebecca has never had a story arc of her own in the present, so this cannot be used as an argument. However, she had the biggest amount of scenes as present Rebecca and she nailed all of them, she realized that Jack lied to her all of his life, she had a huge progress in her relanshiops with Kate and Kevin. She had VERY STRONG scenes when bay Jack could have died. Also, she had a huge story line with Jack in the flashbacks, we saw their first years together.

    I think that she got it shit year precisely because of her incredible rendition of her scenes as an old woman in the present, it was the first season where old rebecca felt as one of the main characters.
