    I despise American housewife, America’s funniest home videos, ncis Los Angeles, and that show on vh1 with nick cannon.

    Don’t we all?

    When people think Lena is undeserving…

    She was deserving every single season except for season 8. I love her, but she did absolutely nothing. She did it well, but nobody deserves to be nominated for doing nothing.

    Everyone sans Gwyneth, Boyton and Platt was miscast in the Politician. It’s a great show, but it could’ve used better actors.

    Lange is overrated.

    People need to relax; not everything I say, Thatcher says, or anyone else for that matter, is always meant literally. Julia Garner still remains a great winner, and she would have easily been my personal runner-up. I just have a soft spot for Headey and stand by the fact that that she would have been deserving based on her submission. It’s funny because when Judith Light was nominated for being in 2 of Versace’s 8 episodes, everyone was (rightfully) rooting for her – she maximized her screen time significantly – but when it came to Headey this year people seemed more interested in her screen time rather than in the quality of her work.

    But back to the point, we all just like to have some fun here 🙂

    Exactly. that’s the difference. Headey did NOT maximized her screen time significantly, she was not not even between the three top choices of the fandom (outside of the forum of GD, of course, because even in our wards she lost).

    Lange is overrated.

    I have found her overrated in every work I’ve seen of hers this decade. AHS, Feud or The Politician. I don’t get Goldderby’s obsession with her.

    Is she overrated in this? Almost everything I have read says her performance is the worst of the show

    Its a pretty subjective case of some people on here loving the performance and some people hating it. I find it pretty unbearable, but it’s not totally her fault as the character is also pretty horribly written and she’s essentially directed to be the same character she’s played in Murphy productions since 2011.

    My comment was mostly in relation to Goldderby’s response to her performances. There were many users who thought she was great, and even the people who weren’t enamoured by her were more critical of her character/writing than the performance itself.

    She is an incredible actress, but she has zero versatility. It is very sad that many people are unable to see that. Also, she is obsessed with playing always the same role, she always says that her favorite role is Mary Tyrone, which is basically another version of her AHS roles. I agree with the praise that she got for AHS besides the similarities between the four roles, but people arguing that she is better in Feud than Nicole Kidman in BLL is a horrible travesty. Feud was a mistake for her, because it was the best example of her lack of versatility, especially when she had to recreate the movie roles of Joan Crawford.

    You have Susan Sarandon right there, working her butt off with less screentime and material to give a genuinely great performance, yet all attention goes to Lange for playing Jessica Lange. I hated that.

    Yeah, as much as I love early AHS I’m glad Lange stopped after Freak Show. It has grown tiring watching her tread nearly the same ground for the last decade. The last time her acting style felt truly fresh was in Frances.

    She was Rihanna to Streep’s Beyonce.

    Ivo, your opinion isn’t word. It’s completely fine that you’d think that, but don’t try to pretend like your opinion represents the vast majority. For instance, I absolutely thought she maximized her screen time; her performance touched me deeply. But I also know that that’s solely my personal opinion, not everyone else’s.
