    If Britt Lower gets nominated I’ll probably predict Severance to be winning Series because I honestly feel we’re all delusional to even consider she has a chance of getting nominated…

    True, If Lower gets in for doing nothing then Severance is a massive threat for the win

    We clearly watched different shows.

    Not really, she didn’t have a strong performance imo, however, I want to see what the show does with her during S2, the season finale left the door open for an explosive character development for her (same case for Linskey in Yellowjackets)

    Severance is the only show that has the chance of beating Succession (and I’d be happy if it happens). Squid Game won’t do it.

    Britt Lower has the best performance on Severance, hands down. The final reveal is only the cherry on the cake.

    The comparison I’ve been making in my head to justify Fabian beyond him being more deserving than Dalton (to me, accents aside) this season and Mando only appearing in three episodes is I get Jared Harris vibes from Fabian this season when he got a surprise nomination for season 4 of Mad Men or even the season Josh Charles got killed off on The Good Wife. If Mando lasted until the finale is probably be picking him as well.

    I’m one of the few here who will agree with this 💀 she does a perfectly fine job, but the disproportionate praise for that performance surprises me.

    This hostility will not stand man.

    I think Scott and Turturro deserve Wins. Lower deserves a nomination by I would give the win to Linney or Lynskey but she definitely had the material to win.

    Thank you, I don’t hate her performance, I liked it, she was good but the praise she got on this site was too much.

    I get Jared Harris vibes from Fabian this season when he got a surprise nomination for season 4 of Mad Men or even the season Josh Charles got killed off on The Good Wife.

    Mad Men was a 4 time (and incumbent) drama series Emmy winner and Josh Charles already had a prior nomination for The Good Wife. Comparatively Better Call Saul hasn’t even manage to be able to get the most acclaimed drama supporting performance on television a single nomination.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    Once again not meant to be an exact comparison. Just in terms of an underappreciated performance being elevated by the characters death. I do think Saul will overperform this year and that also motivates the nomination. Ultimately, I feel like this year will be different.

    I have Seehorn getting nominated this year too. I am bullish on it. If she isn’t nominated this year then I agree Fabian isn’t making it. But I can see voters overcompensating after the previous snubs. Especially after Odenkirk nearly died for this season.

    Y’all reminded me how both Jared Harris and Josh Charles should have WON for their respectively seasons but were done dirty.

    I do think people are conflating Lower’s overall season performance with her performance in the final episode – and I say this because she was rarely mentioned here prior to the finale even by her most loyal fans – but I’m also not sure that matters (the gold standard example here being Julianne Nicholson last year).

    I just don’t think it really works as a comparison at all with all due respect even if it should when we’re talking about the merits of the performance itself. Both Harris and Charles were on shows that were much bigger players with the actors branch and both of them competed when voters were restricted in how many choices they were allowed to make on the nominating ballot. With the voting system being radically different from what it was in 2014, the branch having been historically apathetic towards Better Call Saul I just don’t see how they would nominate Fabian if they aren’t caught up with the season never mind Plan and Execution as an episode and they already having two established perennial favourites from the show in Banks and Esposito.

    I do hope Better Call Saul does perform as well as your inklings about it doing though because I really can’t remember the last time I’ve been so shaken(?) by a season of television before. As unhealthy as it may be I’m probably going to be thinking about Plan and Execution non stop until Tuesday lol.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.
