    I adore Spacek but she’s been criminally underused on Bloodline.

    Don’t see why this has to be its own forum. But she has been very underused on the show, which really sucks because she is one of the best actresses of her generation

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Sissy Spacek having a thread devoted to her doesn’t seem like excess considering she’s rarely as discussed as other actresses from the 70’s and 80’s.

    I only saw the first season (and the second season finale) and Spacek was very underused. She has not received a nomination from any group for this role.

    I love “Bloodline,” don’t get me wrong, but my biggest criticism is that the writers are not using Sissy Spacek well! She was dynamite in her guest appearance on “Big Love” a few years ago. Certainly the “Damages” creators know how to write well for actresses of a certain age (thinking about Lily Tomlin, in particular, in Season 3).

    Maybe I let my own hopes up thinking they would give Spacek material like her “In the Bedroom” performance, as well.

    I agree that Spacek has been underused on Bloodline, but, frankly, for an actress in her mid-60s not named Meryl Streep, I’m just glad she’s getting a chance to work and not in Ryan Murphy camp. The character of Sally could definitely be more developed and Emmy voters are definitely aware of the show. I would have been fine with, and have been predicting, a name-check nomination, but now, with so many open spots her category, it may actually happen. But having the material to justify a nomination would be nice too. 🙂

    She was used even less in Season 2 than in Season 1. At this rate she might qualify as Guest in Season 3, then she could potentially sneak in I guess.

    They passed over Sam Shepard and Beau Bridges in guest, so I would not bet on it.

    Murphy would benefit Sissy far more than Bloodline has.
