    I checked it out because of Olivia Colman. I found not knowing a ton about the royal family was not a hindrance, as the scripts managed to fill in enough of the gaps for me.

    Colman wasn’t as prominent as I’d hoped, but she was gangbusters in “Aberfan”, which was an outstanding episode and should receive a writing nod.

    Josh O’Connor was appealing (if too handsome) as Charles and I look forward to the inevitable Diana episodes. (His scene with Colman when she told him no one wants to hear his “voice” was priceless.) Jason Watkins also provided invaluable, rock-solid support as Harold Wilson.

    Now bring on La Gillian as Margaret Thatcher!

    Same I only watched this when Colman was announced only to end up with her not given much to do. But when she is given something to do like Aberfan, that scene with Charles and her last scene with Margaret, she’s absolutely terrific and having rewatched parts of the season I like how she isnt sweaty about it when she lifts the intensity in a scene – it’s a very well measured performance.

    Hopefully she’s given more to do in s4 although I do think Peter Morgan is bored of QEII as a character.

    I find Olivia Colman’s presence very interesting. People forget that this casting was announced way back in 2017, when she was still mostly just famous in England as a TV actress, with the occasional supporting role in very british hollywood productions (the casting was announced while she was doing press as the like 10th billed star of Murder on the Orien Express – she didn’t even appear on the poster). This was before The Favourite, before Fleabag. It’s wild to think that between the announcement of her casting and the premiere of the show, she went from a little known British TV star to an Oscar winner and Emmy nominee for one of the most popular shows on TV. I can’t help but wonder how much this might have played a role in her presence in the show, as she was not a marquee name while they were filming (or at least when they started)

    You may be right given that Peter Morgan is on record for expressing annoyance that she won an Oscar for another Queen before s3 premiered. I don’t know if it’s because he didnt intend to give QEII much screentime from the outset (and wanted to focus on the other family members) but her winning the Oscar meant there would be much more attention to or expectation for her scenes than anticipated, which ended up being few and far between.

    Without Game of Thrones in the way, The Crown could become an Emmy juggernaut. It won for major awards like cinematography, lead actress, and directing last season, and its competition doesn’t seem that stacked. I hope that Josh O’Connor gets in and pulls off a shocking win, because he’s my runaway favorite from the latest season.

    Speaking of people who just finished The Crown s3, Alec Baldwin is @ing individual members of The Crown s3 cast on Twitter to DM them compliments LOL.

    I guess not a surprise that it won SAG ensemble – the new cast seems to be resonating with actors.

    I am starting season 3 of The Crown and I will let you know my thoughts about potential submissions and potential cast members that should be nominated.

    I have made it through the first 6 episodes of season 3

    Tywysog Cymru (episode 6) seems like a very strong submission for Josh O’Connor. Is Josh being submitted for Guest or Supporting?

    Bubbikins (episode 2) would be the obvious choice for Jane Lapotaire for Guest Actress in a Drama

    He’s eligible for guest, but he’ll probably be submitted supporting because he’s likely strong enough to be nominated there.

    I think he should go guest because he could easily win there and he could very realistically be snubbed in supporting, but Netflix is willing to take that chance, so.

    I think “Bubbikins” (episode 4) is the best episode of Season 3 and my favorite of the entire 3 seasons. I would give Jane Lapotaire the Emmy for Guest Actress for that extraordinary performance.

    It’s so obvious which episodes are the strengths for which actor. I would submit “Moondust” (episode 7) for Tobias Menzies and “Tywysog Cymru” (episode 6) for Josh O’Connor. If Josh has a better chance at the Guest Actor Emmy, he should submit there since he does it all there with the Welsh language. I would submit “Aberfan” (episode 3) for Olivia Colman and “Cri de Coeur” (episode 10) for Helena Bonham-Carter.

    Wow I haven’t watched this in weeks. I paused at episode 6 which was the best episode until that point. I should continue.

    Episode 2 is “Margaretology”…
