It is time for Montana82’s annual PLEA to the hundreds…perhaps…thousands of Emmy voters who lurk these forums. These voters can’t possibly keep up with all the shows, performances, and Emmy track records. Anyone else can feel free to add their own plea for their favorite. Perhaps your post can sway some votes! Again, as a gay male, I only care really about ACTRESSES!
PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS ON DIVERSITY
With the focus on diversity in the nominees it is LONG past time for some women of color NOT named Regina King to start taking some Emmy gold of their own for the first time in their careers. Nominations are fine but if you really want to push change you gotta start voting for it on the final ballot.
It is LONG past time for Angela Bassett, Maya Rudolph, and Phylicia Rashad to take home their FIRST career Emmys. There are 2 opportunities to vote for Ms. Bassett and 3 opportunities for Ms. Rudolph. They come in Comedy Guest Actress and Narrator. I would give Bassett the win in Comedy Guest Actress for her fabulous Black Lady Sketch performance and Rudolph the win in Narrator. If you want to reverse them than fine. End their streaks. As for the legendary Ms. Rashad, she was the favorite last year and lost to a 30 second Cherry Jones performances. Ms. Jones basically said in the press conference it was ridiculous she won over Rashad AND Ms. Tyson. She knew.
End these streaks this year. Just do it. They are ALL deserving this year.
Also, Kerry Washington can and SHOULD win her first career Emmy as a producer on the LIVE IN FRONT OF A STUDIO AUDIENCE Variety special.
I also feel badly for Sandra Oh. Riley awkwardly pointed out to her she was a 12 time Emmy loser. I am not gonna say she deserves it this year but I can’t argue if she gets a makeup win. Just pointing it out.
IMO The 3 best leading female performances of the year
IMO The 3 best female leading performances of the year come from from Catherine O’Hara in Schitt’s Creek, Laura Linney in Ozark, and Cate Blanchett in Mrs. America. I strongly endorse them.
Vote for 1 of the Emmy-less Drama Supporting Actresses
In the 8 woman Supporting Actress Drama category, 3 of the nominees have never won a Primetime Emmy. Helena Bonham Carter, Sarah Snook, and Fiona Shaw. All are deserving of the win and I endorse them.

It was hilarious! (And it led to a scintillating conversation about race.)
Hehe I love how you put her on the spot! WHY HAVEN’T YOU WON?

Lurking Emmy voters imagine how embarrassing it will be if you don’t award the only Asian-American performer nominated in the above the line categories this year and one of the only Asian-American performers nominated at the Emmys over the past 20 years on her 12th nomination even though she’s delivered multiple Emmy worthy performances:
FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")August 21, 2020 at 12:54 pm #1203659121
There’s a ridiculous public perception that this woman “plays herself” in all her movies and I have heard so many people say she isn’t necessarily a talented actor. No one I ever hear speak of her means to be insulting, it’s actually very complimentary; but as someone who loves actors, I find it so disrespectful to Aniston’s abilities.
“She’s always Rachel. It’s just Jennifer Aniston in her movies. That’s her thing, she just plays herself all the time, I love her”. It’s not meant to be insulting, but that personable, relatable, loveable personality she has maintained as a movie star for 20 years now requires an insane amount of undeniable, raw talent and skill.
Also…her work as Rachel in FRIENDS is one of the most iconic sitcom performances of all time. She never missed a beat on that show. Ever.
And The Morning Show just certified how versatile and brilliant she truly is. She finally got the opportunity to do a total 180 and let a broad audience see a different side to her. People have said “wow, she can really act”…What were they snorting? She was always a first rate talent, it’s just that she has totally changed it up with this show.
