    I’ve been making my way through the final season of Search Party and Meredith Hagner’s comedic prowess honestly just continues to astonish me.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    This is a little esoteric, but I recently went down a rabbit hole of Wonder Woman episodes from 1977-1978 (don’t ask).

    Aside from looking spectacular, Lynda Carter carries a lot of silliness very well. The show is ridiculous of course, but she makes an awful lot of things work and is absolutely magnetic to watch. Doesn’t matter if the scene is dramatic, heroic, comic, or ironic, she’s equally up to the task.

    I’m not saying she was award-worthy, but from a distant perspective, her work was rock-solid.

    I mean if Lindsay Wagner could win an Emmy for The Bionic Woman why not Lynda Carter?

    My picks are:

    Neve Campbell- Party of Five: As a whole, this show was very under appreciated by award shows, and deserved a lot more love. Campbell in particular always delivered solid work. Julia was a very complex character for a young actress, and she always delivered it with maturity and depth. Some of her most Emmy-worthy work was in season two when Julia got pregnant and debated if she should have the baby, but ultimately miscarries. Campbell delivered mature, nuanced work.

    Dixie Carter-Designing Women: It is really a darn shame that Carter was never nominated for her turn as Julia Sugarbaker. Actually, given the strength of her performances is it sort of baffling why she was never given a nomination.

    Calista Flockhart- Brothers & Sisters: She really should have earned a nomination.

    I’m fed up of this performance being paid too much dust.

    I will never understand why Tichina Arnold in Everybody Hates Chris was never nominated. She was hilarious, but she was also amazing in the heartfelt, more dramatic scenes. There’s an episode in season 1 where her father died, she was incredible in that whole episode. Actually, the whole show was paid dust by the Emmys and I wonder why.

    One of the most heartbreaking and layered performance I’ve ever seen. I’m still baffled that she hasn’t won any awards. What she has to do more?

    Because it was UPN/The CW.

    I think Lindsay Wagner submitted an episode where she either played twins or two different characters.

    Dixie Carter should have been nominated and my guess is that The Golden Girls prevented her from nominations from 1987 to 1989. Delta Burke got nominated in 1990 and 1991.

    Was Calista Flockhart submitted in lead or supporting for Brothers & Sisters?
