    I’m kind of confused about Patricia Arquette’s trajectory for “Escape At Dannemora” this season. Basically, how in the heck did she win the Golden Globe, SAG and Broadcast Film Critics Associations Awards and then lose the Emmy to Michelle Williams who hadn’t won a single award all season?

    Where did Michelle’s momentum come from all of a sudden and why did Patricia lose out? Was she always going to lose the Emmy? did vote splitting between her role on “The Act” hurt her chances at winning? Did Patricia only win the other awards because “Fosse/Verdon” wasn’t eligible at SAG or Golden Globes this time around?

    Thoughts please!

    You’re conflicting yourself, and yes it is mainly because of that. Arquette was probably second.

    I haven’t seen all of Fosse/Verdon but Michelle Williams was always going to win with the performance she gave.

    Michelle didn’t compete for those awards Arquette won. She will next year.
    The reality is that Arquette winning those awards led to her losing the supporting ones against Patricia Clarkson, and luckily the Emmys noticed it was a weak performance so they replaced her with Arquette and gave the leading award to another great performance by Williams.

    Williams won TCA over her.

    And she deserved the win 100%. Arquette was great, but Williams was sensational.

    I don’t get this statement. Arquette never lost to Clarkson for anything tbh. She didn’t compete for The Act until the Emmys, so I’m a bit confused as to what you mean

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    My bad. Thought she was losing to her.
    Still, the Emmys noticed that Clarkson’s performance was weak so they went for Arquette, leaving space for white Michelle. A perfect ending.

    The same thing that happened to Amy Adams. A stronger contender just happened to come along and timing. I should’ve expected for Patricia Arquette to be rewarded in supporting like she ended up doing bc those once in a blue moon double nominations for strong performances don’t happen all the time and you either win one or both.

    I couldn’t get past the third episode of Fosse/Verdon to be honest, because the show just isn’t my cup of tea, but the reason why Michelle won is pretty simple: she supposedly (and I say that because I haven’t seen the full thing) gave the performance of the year. It’s as simple as that. Had she underwhelmed, then that Emmy would probably be in Arquette’s hand. Arquette lost steam toward the end, not only because Williams completely and utterly stole her thunder, but because “Dannemora” had aired way too long ago. Plus, she really doesn’t play an academy friendly role in that show while Gwen Verdon is very much academy friendly. Globe voters actually watched Dannemora and considered Arquette’s performance worthy of a win, which is why she won there. BFCA probably would have given it to Adams but then felt the need to honor both, and SAG pretty much just copied the Globes. Don’t get me wrong, everyone here knows how much I ADORED Arquette’s work in Dannemora – my favorite performance of the 18/19 cycle – but that’s not why she won SAG. Please.

    I predicted correctly the wins of Williams and Arquette at the Emmys, voters did they job and watched the performances, both were the best in their categories. Emmys are not like the Oscar, their eligibility only matches the TCA where Williams beat all the Drama and Limited performers that competed with her, her performance is one of the best that I have ever had the privilege to witness, it is impossible not to vote for her if you watch her. Same happened with The Act, it was eligible only during Emmy and TCA cycle, so the weak performance of Clarkson did NOT stand a chance. Both Arquette and Williams are going to win more awards for those roles in the coming months.

    TV academy was blessed by the holy trinity and this year gave us one of the best teams of winners I’ve ever witnessed. We should all be content. “Amy Adams should have won” responses to this post are not allowed. Thanks.

    Most will likely see Arquette’s win for “The Act” as a consolation prize for “Dannemora.” People like to discredit the Globes/SAG combo, but Arquette was the frontrunner for a time, at least, which should have been Amy Adams, but bygones. Then White Michelle came along, and that was that lol. In a general sense, there was more below-the-line support for “Dannemora” in the Academy than “The Act.” But actors vote for actors! Totally know that, but I’m not all that convinced voters really watched “The Act.” “Dannemora” support had to go somewhere, after all, so why not vote for the other Patricia in supporting actress, why not vote for the other Munchausen-by-Proxy bad mommy of the year? That’s what I think “happened” with Arquette this season.

    Yeah, obviously, thank you. I have to read proof my comments even when I am in a hurry.

    BFCA probably would have given it to Adams but then felt the need to honor both, and SAG pretty much just copied the Globes. Don’t get me wrong, everyone here knows how much I ADORED Arquette’s work in Dannemora – my favorite performance of the 18/19 cycle – but that’s not why she won SAG. Please.

    I disagree, I think actors more than anybody else saw that Arquette is very superior to Adams. And I think that it is a voters friendly performance since it is a complete transformation. Julia Roberts iself told that to Patty, it is incredible how brave she is, how versatile she is and how far is able and willing to go for a role.

    Totally, I still have goosebumps when I recall this year’s winners.

    But actors vote for actors! Totally know that, but I’m not all that convinced voters really watched “The Act.” “Dannemora” support had to go somewhere, after all, so why not vote for the other Patricia in supporting actress, why not vote for the other Munchausen-by-Proxy bad mommy of the year?

    They definitely watched it, this is why they nominated Joey King, half the actors on the red carpet were speaking about her actually, I am convinced that without Williams, she could have been able to beat Arquette and Adams in Lead, and it will have been very well deserved.
