    I was filling out my directing predictions and I just wondered, if one had a ballot, which The Crown nominee would you vote for in drama directing?

    Comment below with your choice.

    Out of these, Fairytale.

    I would vote for 48:1 or Terra Nullius.

    The better one wins.

    I mean direction in “Fairytale” is more memorable for me, so it will be my choice. However, I agree that “Terra Nullius” would’ve also been a great tape.

    Fairytale. It’s so claustrophobic and with such impending doom it’s almost like a horror movie with the best title ever.

    Out of the two, “Fairytale”. I still think Jessica submitted the wrong episode. She should’ve submitted “Avalanche” instead.

    If I had to choose one, Fairytale, easily. Marvelous episode.

    That said, “The Wilderness” (THT) would get my vote on the actual ballot.

    They both submitted the correct episode and “Fairytale” should win.

    With regards to Caron I think “Fairytale” is a far superior choice to “Gold Stick”. “Gold Stick” does have great editing in that hunting sequence but other than that it’s an episode that feels almost as if it is toneless. I don’t consider it a necessarily bad episode and it’s filled with excellent performances but it’s imo the weakest opener of any season of the show.

    “Fairytale” on the other hand has direction that is almost perfection. It’s such an intrinsic character study that almost feels as if it’s an interactive experience. As the viewer you feel as if you’re directly in Diana’s shoes. You feel the excitement she has at the start of the episode of being whisked into this other world but then that excitement turns to dread and then to fear and then to misery. Now of course you can attribute those things to the episode’s strong writing or Corrin’s magnetic performance but there’s this feeling of anxiety that you feel when you’re watching the episode. The lunch scene between Camilla and Diana is painful! The scene where Diana walks in on Margaret’s story about Manilla elicits an amalgamation of embarrassment and dread!

    I feel like this scene sums up how I feel about the episode as a whole. The transition from the start of a piece of ballet that seems to have quite a nice therapeutic use (like exercise) to it being used as an artistic expression of emotion  is quite seamless.
