None because SNL shouldn’t be allowed to compete in the comedy categories.August 26, 2021 at 10:21 am #1204417382
After watching the finale, still can’t decide if this was the best season of TGF or the absolute worst.August 11, 2021 at 4:09 pm #1204392574
I keep thinking this is referring to the Renee Zellweger campy Netflix series, lol.July 23, 2021 at 10:22 am #1204359364
Loving all the “LA Law” nods this season, especially this week with (5 time!) Emmy nominee Jill Eikenberry making a cameo.July 21, 2021 at 4:34 pm #1204357007
2016 Lead Actress in a Limited Series/Movie comes to mind. Felicity Huffman was outstanding in the second season of “American Crime” and was my personal pick. Honestly, everyone in that particular lineup could have made a case for winning–an embarrassment of riches.July 18, 2021 at 10:12 am #1204351799
Interesting note: each of the last 3 decades premiered one drama that won for Season One and were nominated for the next 3 seasons.
90s – The West Wing, feat Elisabeth Moss as the lead’s daughter
00s – Mad Men, with Elisabeth Moss as the second lead
10s – Handmaid’s Tale, toplined by Elisabeth Moss
Only the best for the queen!
You are also forgetting Elisabeth Moss had a reocccuring role in another (two-time) Outstanding Drama Series winner, “Picket Fences” in the 90s (though most people on this forum seem to forget about this series–Kathy Baker was fantastic)June 30, 2021 at 7:50 am #1204324417
“Meet Me in Daegu” from “Lovecraft Country” is my number one. The Judy Garland parallels just get me.
Also on the list:
“Scream Therapy” Dirty John
“Sacrament” Mare of Easttown
“I Think She Will” Hacks
“In Case of Emergency” The Flight Attendant
“Home” The Handmaid’s TaleMay 23, 2021 at 7:32 am #1204267303
I admit I’ve been a big Jean Smart fan for decades! My favorite performance of hers is her 90s sitcom, “High Society” with Mary McDonnell (watch on YouTube to see other camp diva antics).
I’ve seen her body of work, all the way from “Designing Women” days, and can attest that she deserved to win for every nomination (except for her nomination for “The District”). This includes: “Frasier,” “24” (both in supporting and guest), “Samantha Who,” “Harry’s Law,” “Fargo,” and “Watchman.” She was also Tony-worthy in her performance in “The Man Who Came to Dinner” (available on DVD).
She is sensational in “Hacks.” If it keeps it up, this will be her defining performance. She really is that good.
Next, can we get Annie Potts or Delta Burke to play the sister?May 8, 2021 at 8:08 am #1204246880
Amanda Peet should be winning (although Kate Winslet is becoming a close second).April 13, 2021 at 4:24 pm #1204198979
“Hacks” looks amazing! Too bad it is not debuting in the eligibility period this year. Can Mary McDonnell also star so we can get a “High Society” reunion?March 16, 2021 at 8:14 am #1204138046
Hopefully this final season will allow the main characters a chance to shine in the spotlight (and not be relegated to supporting roles, like they were last year, particularly Sandra Oh). I’d honestly get rid of the supporting cast, because I can’t stand most of these characters. The show would be better without Costantine, Carolyn’s daughter, and even Carolyn (the thought of a spinoff in this universe does not appeal to me because most of these secondary characters are annoying).February 18, 2021 at 5:32 am #1204047976
Shirley Knight won 2 acting Emmys in 1995. She deserved both.February 9, 2021 at 9:57 am #1204033037
Of course, Glenn Close’s performance is nowhere near as strong as “The Wife” (I’m probably in the minority that thought she was better than Colman that year). However, Close did way more than previous winners in this category–if Laura Dern can win for such a small, short performance, Close could win for a role she dominates.January 15, 2021 at 12:44 pm #1203985344
I’ve been rewatching “The Trials of Rosie O’Neil” on Amazon Prime, and it just solidified that Sharon Gless is one of the greats. Her opening monologue in the pilot is one of the best acted monologues (her first line is “I’m thinking of having my t**s done”–which was shocking at the time…not so shocking now). She should have more than two Emmys.
