    Finished the season; was always supporting her as a fan but I REALLY want her to win it now after her last scenes with Harold Wilson and Margaret, she was incredible. Teared during the latter scene, Olivia and HBC are powerhouses together.

    The last 2 eps formed a really strong finish – loved Imbroglio when the whole family was together (and Anne gets to be an absolute star!) – it’s a fantastic ensemble and they deserve SAG honestly (can they share it with the Succession cast I love both).

    Menzies is unexpectedly brilliant. I wasn’t expecting him to be my favorite part of the season.

    Hopefully more people will be interested to check out The Terror now because Menzies is terrific in it and fantastic with another Crown alum, Jared Harris!!

    Episodes don’t matter so the discussion is moot tbh.

    Gaze Upon Olivia Colman’s Single, Perfect Tear on The Crown

    But nothing is more remarkable than one specific shot of Olivia Colman’s face at the end of the season’s third episode, “Aberfan.” The shot is an extreme close-up of Colman’s face, seen from a three-quarter profile view. As the camera holds on her face, a single tear slowly wells up in Colman’s eye and then elegantly rolls down her cheek, an unbelievable demonstration of simultaneous emotional openness and physical restraint. It’s the sort of shot that makes you lean back in your chair and yell “how did they do that?!” to no one in particular.

    I’m enjoying this season, and I think Colman and Carter are both solid in these roles. They are thriving. Yet, I agree with some users above. There are episodes where Colman doesn’t even feel like the protagonist, like Foy did at times. And as a comparison, I think I prefer Foy to Colman so far.

    I don’t know why, but Big Little Lies has seemed to exit the good graces of the Internet, probably bad buzz post-Andrea Arnold revelations. After seeing the first six episodes of The Crown, there’s no question that what Kidman does in the last two episodes of season two exceeds what Colman does here, far and wide. And what Streep and Dern do easily outshines Carter. However, I feel like the cultural zeitgeist is so drawn to these particular actors in these particular roles. Colman has the “it” factor having just won the Oscar and, on paper, Carter is a perfect match for Margaret. It’s a shame. Maybe Big Little Lies aired too early to compete for wins. After seeing this season in practice, I feel reputation is driving the buzz behind Colman and Carter.

    Suggest to watch the last 2 episodes to see if you still hold that opinion. Those belonged to Colman and Carter and was more moving on a personal level for me than Aberfan and Margaretology as excellent a showcase as those episode were.

    I took a day or two to mull things over. What I’m witnessing is a work of fiction.
    Margaret is famous for saying “Poor you” when her sister became heir presumptive and then quickly heir apparent. There was no jealousy between them, and they were best friends from birth to her death. It was her mother Mary who she credited for ruining her life. A direct quote from the archives. She lived a bohemian lifestyle and was relieved she didn’t have to take on those relentless responsibilities. I’m assuming they invented this conflict in order to advance the story.

    As for Colman, it looks like she needs more time to grown into her role, although I think she’s doing a good job so far.

    That’s my take on things at least for now.

    HBC is criminally underused.

    HBC is criminally underused.

    I so agree with that. It’s one of the only networks not polluted by ads.
    And some of the very best series have been endorsed and shown by HBC

    I’m only up to episode 3. But my god, “Aberfan” was one of the finest hours of television in recent memory. Every second– from the opening sequence, to Phillip at the funerals, and Colman’s single tear– was absolutely perfect.

    I’m kind of underwhelmed by the acting. Colman is doing her usual Colman, and sorry to write that, but Foy was such a beautiful presence in this. HBC is absolutely underused, as somebody else pointed out.
