Unpopular opinion: Kelly, Insecure (Natasha Rothwell) > Colman, s2, Fleabag.September 22, 2019 at 6:30 am #1203092043
No one watched Fleabag s1 when it came out, it’s not because the character is “unlikeable” that it got 0 nominations.
What I think is that Fleabag got so much attention from the industry and academy because of 1. great writing, actors and execution and 2. because of that cool, sexy, not perfect but very, very likable character. I don’t like likable characters very much myself, but the PWB character got me.
But again, just my opinion.September 22, 2019 at 6:23 am #1203092031
I don’t think unlikable characters is a reason why people don’t win when actors playing psychopathic murderers have won before.
In comedy? If you are talking about Bill Harder, i only saw the pilot of Barry and found him likable. But 1 episode is not enough to say …September 22, 2019 at 6:08 am #1203092015
Just my opinion…
The Academy doesn’t like despicable caracteres. Jason Alexander never won an Emmy playing perfectly one of the most iconic characters in TV history (George Constanza, Seinfeld). It took 4 years for VEEP win comedy series, even with that FASTASTIC S3. Julia won 6x playing Selina? Well it’s JLD. Nobody does what she does. Many of you agreed watching those actresses clips.
But let’s take Fleabag. S1 was very good. And then we found out (spoiler) what the main character did to her best friend … Fleabag don’t get one single nomination (nor industry attention, i think). S2: PWB, very cleverly (in a good way), makes us almost forget how terrible her character is … 11 nominations !!!
I’m not saying that S2 isn’t very, very good. What I mean is that in 2015, 2016 and 2017 the academy managed to put likability aside (Atlanta should have won in 2018). If VEEP finale had Amy giving birth in a hospital with all the characters and Selina asking for forgiveness and hugging everyone, VEEP would have won about 20 nominations. But no, VEEP was acidic until the end, and that was brave and well, well done, in my opinion.September 21, 2019 at 3:34 pm #1203091257
I loved Colman on Fleabeg’s S1 and then I saw “The Night Mananger” and I just thought: OMG, how I didn’t know this woman before! But if she wins tomorrow, it will be very, very unfair.September 20, 2019 at 5:05 pm #1203089836

Am I the only one who doesn’t want Maisel to win Best Comedy!? It has become stagnant. There are way more deserving nominees waiting to be coronated
No, you are not.
I love VEEP very much from the beginning. It’s my all time favorite series along with Seinfeld. But if VEEP loses to Fleabeg I’ll have the same feeling I would have if VEEP lost to Atlanta in 2017: ok, VEEP is better, but that series the realy, realy good too. I watched 5 episodes of TMMM s1 and almost slept. I found it very repetitive and boring, despite being very well executed … Anyway, it will be sad if VEEP loses to TMMM, if loses to Fleabag, I can get over it easier.September 15, 2019 at 7:25 pm #1203078638
I will have to start seeing TMMM again. I saw about 5 episodes and almost slept. The show must be good and I don’t get it. I’m not being sarcastic here. I will give it another chance…
I so sad for uncle Jeff, Peter MacNicol should have won at least one time for VEEP 🙁September 10, 2019 at 5:50 pm #1203068382
I don’t know how many times I’ve watched that JLD’s clip scene since May 12th. She is AMAZING in this. Brosnahan is good, but the clip is very bad. If we were to judge for it, she wouldn’t deserve even the nomination. PWB’s clip is the S2 trailer … I liked the O’Hara clip. The Applegate clip is bad, but she is good is that series.August 25, 2019 at 4:25 am #1203038780
I think this is the first time I’ve seen JLD doing press during voting. She wants the record!
I watched a YTB video on VEEP’s Season 7 Gag Real and Wrap and besides making me laugh and cry this video reinforced what I already thought: Is Julia campaigning because she wants the record? Also. But we all know she’ll win for actress. Including her. She is campaigning a lot more because she wants VEEP to win better series. The series involved the work of dozens of people she seems to like very much. She loves VEEP and she really wants to see the show triumph.August 23, 2019 at 5:53 am #1203035950
I just saw Jennifer Aniston and Reese´s series trailer. Jennifer’s face doesn’t move. I know a woman is free to do whatever she wants with her face. But an actress needs facial expression.August 17, 2019 at 5:33 pm #1203028318
Let’s face it:
Is PWB a genius? Yes. Is Fleabag perfect in what it proposes? Yes. Is PWB a great comedy actress? Yes. Is she better actres than JLD, Rachel Brosnahan and Christina Applegate? NOPE.
Ps.: I haven’t seen Lyonne and O’Hara yet.
