    The age difference wasn’t the problem. I didn’t mind that. The problem was how bad Haddish was. I found series entertaining. Will it win awards no. But Octavia made it watchable.

    Isn’t it amazing that someone does not abandon the sinking ship and sticks to such an undeveloped project, knowing that the material is weak, and even elevates that so the viewers can at least enjoy the miniseries?

    Octavia Spencer deserves to be nominated for an Emmy because she has done everything in this show to make it work. Her complex and rich acting was not because of the script, but because she decided to elevate mediocrity and create something else out of it. Her Madam C. J. Walker was truly entertaining to watch.

    Self Made is enjoyable enough to qualify as good. But it certainly isn’t excellent.

    Octavia Spencer will be nominated. She has a few showy scenes that really showcase her dramatic skills.

    Carmen Ejogo is an underrated actress. One day, she will secure THE role of her career. However, her character was severely under written.

    Tiffany Haddish gets an A for effort. But she probably wasn’t the best casting choice.

    And THE MUSIC….my god! It’s awful! “Harlem Shake”? “Seven Nation Army”? Really!?

    Was this their attempt at making the story feel more ‘contemporary’?

    you look like your picture, thank god.
