    Rewatching Orange is the New Black and I’m sorry but Danielle Brooks is incredible. I also think Yael Stone is underrated. Season 2 Lorraine Toussaint also gives a magnificent performance. Why do you think they were snubbed for Emmy nominations?

    Lori Petty as Lolly had a couple back to back amazing episodes (detailing her background and mental illness)

    I loved those performances you mentioned too! I also thought Kimiko Glenn, Taryn Manning, Beth Fowler and Beth Dover gave great and under recognised performances.

    Yael Stone (S2), Taryn Manning (S1), Danielle Brooks (S5), Lori Petty (S4), Lorraine Toussaint (S2) all deserved nominations. Yet to catch up with the last two seasons. The show is rare in today’s landscape that it is consistently great but S4 is a particular peak.

    All of them, literally the whole cast gave an amazing performance in some episodes in particular, some of them during their respective episodes, some were the MVP of some seasons, they were all highlighted at some point during the whole series, so they were all overlooked except for Uzo Aduba.

    The whole show was overlooked, it was one of the best shows in the last decade.

    Danielle Brooks’ performance in Season Five is god-tier. I can’t fathom that she was never nominated for this. (close runner-up Lorraine Toussaint for S2)

    FYC:
    Emmy: Ego Nwodim ("SNL"), Nico Santos ("Superstore"), Lolly Adefope ("Shrill"), MJ Rodriguez ("Pose")
    BAFTA: Leila Farzad ("I Hate Suzie")
