    Thought I’d start the thread for this.

    I quite enjoy Episode 2, I think MacFadyen has enough juicy material to get an Emmy nom.

    Also Michael Sheen. That man is the king of impersenations.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    I went to the bathroom while it was still on and honest-to-god thought it was the actual Chris Tarrant speaking.

    Sheen is a master of voice work.

    This was fun entertainment, but cheesier and less prestigious than expected, so I do not see the Emmys taking it seriously enough for series, directing or anything below the line, nor do I expect a massive campaign to compensate as I do with what I have in its place. I am keeping it in writing on the basis of it being British, good and airing at the right time. Matthew Macfadyen was much more layered than Sian Clifford and his category might have a bit more wiggle room anyway. But maybe Fleabag goodwill rules the day, with not only Clifford being nominated, but Macfadyen getting bumped by Andrew Scott. No fault of his won, Michael Sheen ended up just being a caricature as opposed to a character with his limited material, so I will have to replace him, but there is not really anyone waiting in the wings. He is due for another nomination, but that it has taken him so long to get it suggests that he is less of a name-check than John Turturro for example.

    If the supporting actress category wasn’t set to be overwhelmed by Mrs. America ladies, I would be taking Helen McCrory very seriously after her performance in the finale.

    I don’t see Sian Clifford or Michael Sheen getting in. Will keep an eye on the show reception for whether or not to predict Macfadyen.

    I watched it, I thought it was pretty enjoyable.
    Clearly Helen McCrory and Michael Sheen were the MVP’s.

    Helen McCrory is one of the most underrated actresses we have. She kills every role she gets.

    I think Writing, Sheen (his category is truly empty) and Macfadyen are the strong chances this show has above the line. The actress categories are too packed and if A Very English Scandal couldn’t get into Series I doubt this can.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Is this show still eligible for this year’s Emmys? AMC rescheduled it to May 31st, June 7th and 14th airing.

    Theyve changed the rules so as long as a show debuts by May 31st, all episodes airing in June are also elegible

    I just watched episode 1 and it was more intriguing than I thought. I didn’t know what tone it would take. I liked the tone it took. The family stuff was more somber and the show was looser and funnier. Does Michael Sheen get more during the major’s time in the chair. I think a performance like this could gain some awards traction. I could see it getting a directing nom for Frears.

    I hope this gets some emmy love. Macfadyen, Clifford, Sheen and McRoy are all amazing in this.
