    If you were an Emmy voter, who would you check on your ballot for Best Actress in a TV Movie/Mini? I’m so befuddled by this race. I need to hear how YOU guys size it up. Jessica seems to have all of the vital signs: portraying a real-life person, giving the BIGGER performance, theatrically speaking. But there’s a strong push across Hollywood for Nicole.

    Neither. I’d vote for Freida Pinto. Oh wait…

    Honestly though, is vote for Kidman. I know I’m in the minority, but I personally didn’t love Lange’s performance. I personally wouldn’t even have nominated her.

    Kidman. She’ll be a Tony shy of the triple crown.

    Kidman, even though she didn’t even give the best performance in Big Little Lies. That would be Reece Witherspoon. But yes, Kidman over Lange.

    Kidman! I would vote for several of them ahead of Lange.

    Now that I’ve watched all of BLL I’m surprised Witherspoon hasn’t gained more traction. It’s the more complete arc, the most complete character, and yes, imo the overall best performance by a slight amount. But Kidman has the baitier role and is the more acclaimed actor.

    I also really liked Reese Witherspoon and found her underrated! I honestly thought gave her career-best work in BLL, making what could have been a superficial carciature into a believable human being. I liked Kidman slightly better, but Witherspoon deserves recognition as well. Like you said, Kidman’s role is baitier.

    I only made that bullshit “Reese Witherspoon is overrated in Big Little Lies” thread to troll a troll, just a reminder. Plus, that was before I actually saw Big Little Lies, and now that I have seen it, I am totally convinced that Reese Witherspoon is being underrated as all hell! She would receive a standing ovation from me if she were to win the Emmy.

    To answer Tom O’Neil’s question, I would literally vote for ANY of the other nominees before even considering voting for Jessica Lange looking and acting nothing like the real Joan Crawford. Such a waste of an Emmy nomination, Bryce Dallas Howard got robbed for Black Mirror! 🙁

    If I would be an Emmy voter, I’d vote for the best performance, which is Felicity Huffman’s in American Crime.

    Thank you! I loved Kidman, but for me Witherspoon was far superior and the overall MVP of the show.

    Jessica Lange. I only watched 2 episodes of Feud and that was enough to convince me. I watched BLL in its entirety and I wouldn’t even have nominated Kidman, because she gave a standard Kidman performance and was easily overshadowed by Woodley and Witherspoon.

    Kidman. She delivered in episode after episode with a fully realised performance that I was not expecting at all when I watched the first episode. Whilst Lange was very very good, it was very much what you see is what you get with her performance from the get-go. I’d also choose Sarandon’s more nuanced work over hers.

    Lange, easily. Even though she sounded or looked nothing like Crawford, the range of emotions she went through in Feud was mindblowing. I mean, she didn’t need to do an impression of Crawford to capture her as a human being. Streep could learn something from her, tbh. As for Kidman, she was very good, but her accent was pretty awfuul and kept dragging me out of the show. And as people have said here before, Whiterspoon was better than her.
