    This Extraordinary Being. Without a doubt. Did you watch the scene with the noose around her neck??

    I watched the series. I watched her acting completely wooden while being drugged and tortured, eliciting a little puff or grunt, doused in buckets of fake sweat and yet nothing but a mild little poop of expression. I felt like I was being tortured watching her. I understand she’s meant to be repressed, but her imprisonment and any depiction of actual scenes of violence and torture were just plain bad.

    It’s also really weird how pressed you all get whenever Regina King is not hero worshipped. Weird little cult having its emperor’s new clothes moment.

    It’s pretty obvious that you dislike her for whatever reason when she’s last in your predictions even though she’s probably winning.

    And then you wake up from your delusions.

    Just say you hate talent and we’d believe it

    Imagine thinking it matters where you place someone from second down.

     

    I have nothing against a person I’ve never met and it’s astonishingly puerile that you’d think this is personal between Regina and me, as in your minds that must explain why someone hasn’t gushed over her performance. I hope she sees this bro. I admire the fan club, its so cute.

    It’s not irrelevant when a director directs the actors’ performances.

    While it’s clear that “This Extraordinary Being” is the overwhelming favorite over pilot, let’s not forget the choice directors made previously with DGA.

    I actually would probably go with the pilot? Such a hard choice between the two Watchmen episodes because they are both excellent. I just typically give a little extra credit to pilots because they have the extra work of establishing the look, tone, and feel of the entire series and this particular pilot had such a tough job in establishing this very specific world with fantastical/outlandish elements while keeping it grounded in emotion and reality. That the pilot managed to do all that was very impressive. Also the Tulsa sequences really put it over the edge for me.

    Now that we have some solid proof that voters are watching all of “Watchmen” (craft people, at least), “TEB” looks good for directing. I’ve always had this as the winner, since it’s such a clear directing triumph to me. If a vote split occurs, I think Shelton would most benefit from that.

    Fuck it I’m predicting This Extraordinary Being with Lynn Shelton as a runner up.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).
