I’m kinda shook by it. Was expecting him to be the saving grace from what I’d heard. If anything, Carrell is the one steadying the ship which is bizarre to say.
I know, it’s jarring. The show also kind of hinges on his performance too. You’re supposed to believe this guy is a dangerous serial killer who can snap at any moment, but Gleeson is so unconvincing. It’s a really stiff performance. I remember thinking he played it like he (Gleeson, not the character) was confused by every word coming out of his month lol.ReplyJune 1, 2023 at 3:26 pm #1205449542
Domnahll Gleeson is actively bad at times in The Patient
Omg he is SO bad in that show lol.ReplyJune 1, 2023 at 1:07 pm #1205449377
Bad Sisters is kind of screaming Yellowjackets s1 in potential for surprise overperformance.
It should just replace Yellowjackets in every category it got in last year. Wouldn’t mind that one bit!ReplyJune 1, 2023 at 8:22 am #1205449126
Oh she’s SO much fun in next week’s episode! It’s not quite an “Emmy tape” (and I still think her best work on the show is in the Season 2 finale followed by the Season 1 airplane episode) but it’s a really darn entertaining performance and her best work on the 7 episodes of Season 3 I was able to see!
It would be hard for her to top the season 2 finale, to be fair. That was the definition of an Emmys tape lol.
I would die for Heléne Yorke, honestly. I say it every week but she’s just so damn good in this. Also, dead at “He’s here. He’s queer. He’s Gobby.”ReplyMay 29, 2023 at 4:48 am #1205444369
Just like on Barry, another great show that ended tonight. People hated Sally for being egotistical, even though Barry was a literal murderer (but uwu).
People will quite literally hate a woman who acts the exact same way their favorite male character acts just because she’s a woman lol. And most of the time, it’s the man who is still far worse.
Those types of female characters are always my favorite though, whether it’s Shiv or Elizabeth Jennings. They’re just far more interesting to watch.May 29, 2023 at 4:30 am #1205444359
The way that gif of Fahy always immediately transports me back to the moment I watched that scene. Whew. There really is a certain power behind it.
That really should be an Emmy winning performance, even though it unfortunately won’t be.May 29, 2023 at 4:27 am #1205444350
Now that the show’s over, I think it goes without sayin’ that Jeremy Strong’s performance will go down in TV history the same way Gandolfini’s, Hamm’s, Cranston’s, and Comer’s has.
The Comer sneak lmaoooo. I still maintain that Strong isn’t even top 5 performance in the show, so he’s not in the Gandolfini/Hamm league for me.May 29, 2023 at 3:25 am #1205444317
Not that I’m necessarily predicting this, but I honestly think there’s more chance J. Smith-Cameron misses out on a nomination altogether than actually wins.
I mean…yeah, of course this is true because Gerri has never been a winning role and Coolidge is so far out ahead of her competition in supporting that Smith-Cameron will end up no where close to a win.
However, I’m really not sure why people are doubting her nomination. It’s a limited ballot now, but she’s still the only viable option in supporting actress for Succession (which is at peak buzz, visibility, acclaim, etc.) and she’s done enough this season in an actual supporting role to warrant a nomination. I think we’ve become so used to supporting roles having so much screen time the last few years to the point where they often border on being lead, that we forget performances that should be recognized in that category are those that have great moments here and there over the course of the season, but aren’t necessarily so integral to the plot in the way a lead character is.
While I’m not clamoring for Smith-Cameron to get nominated again, I can think of multiple scenes over the course of the season to point to when discussing why she should get nominated. Just because she doesn’t have the material someone like Seehorn or Debicki has — both of whom you could argue aren’t supporting — doesn’t mean she should miss out on a supporting nomination.May 28, 2023 at 8:43 pm #1205444079
Shiv’s and Tom’s bloodline are the next succession, so everything makes complete sense.
Well, not necessarily. Neither of them owns the company. Matsson controls the line of succession now.May 28, 2023 at 8:24 pm #1205444040
So, Shiv is getting A LOT of hate on social media https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js I don’t know if Snook wins anymore, sometimes the way the character is received can hurt the actor, and we saw a lot of that on the Lead Actress category.
Good to see misogyny is alive and well! This always happens when there’s a female character who ruins things for the male anti-hero lead. For some reason people love Kendall, despite being a horrid person who’s done horrid things, so of course people on Twitter will hate Shiv because she fucked his chance at running the company.
And this will not affect Snook’s chances lol. She’ll win rather easily.May 28, 2023 at 8:16 pm #1205444019
Shiv knew she could manipulate Tom and not Kendall so she chose the easier path for her, she’s going to eat Tom up in our imagination of the future of Succession.
I really don’t even think this was Shiv’s mindset when she chose to push the deal through. I think Tom was just the lesser of two evils — the outcome she could stomach easier.
Tom’s basically just a puppet anyway. Matsson even said to him that they won’t be partners. He’s just a front to appease Mencken.May 28, 2023 at 8:07 pm #1205444008
I just don’t see a world where Pascal manages to garner enough votes to beat out Culkin or Strong.
I think Culkin and Strong will have so much passion and support that they’ll just be so far out ahead of the rest of the nominees. It’ll be like Strong vs. Cox the first time they went head to head. Rooting for Culkin though. He had a much stronger and more consistent season than Strong, imo.May 28, 2023 at 8:00 pm #1205443998
Also did Kendall take Roman’s stitches out or was I just confused?
He didn’t physically take them out, but he did purposely reopen the wound by squeezing Roman’s head to his chest.May 28, 2023 at 7:58 pm #1205443992
I think she new how bad it was going to be for Kendall (and themselves) having him as CEO, she knew how awful Logan was to his own family while being in charge, Kendall was going to fuck everything and everyone as CEO because he was unstable as fuck.
I honestly think it more so comes down to ego. We’ve seen it play out before — and also this episode at their mother’s house — none of the siblings can stand the thought of their brother or sister being CEO. Each of them has always wanted it for themselves.
Do I think Shiv really believes Kendall isn’t right for it? Yes. But I also think when it came down to it, she just really didn’t want to see him win when she knew she wasn’t going to.May 28, 2023 at 7:49 pm #1205443952
Shiv depriving Kendall of his lifelong dream was so fucking sweet. I couldn’t stop smiling watching him beg her to say no. As a member of team Shiv, we still kind of lost but at least she had a say in her fate!
I wish there was another season because I hate the thought of Tom actually going out on top, but this was such a fitting end and I really don’t see how they’d bring it back anyway (though I’m sure Armstrong had a couple ideas).
Emmys for all!Not now
