Yeah, agreed. I thought Qualley was great actually, but still can’t believe she got nominated. Pretty much sealed the deal for me in terms of Michelle Williams winning.
Qualley was outstanding, and she should submit the episode where she gave the audition. She was incredibly moving.July 16, 2019 at 6:26 pm #1202979970
Were Episode 6 and 7 the only writing submissions on the ballet for “Dannemora?” I loved both episodes, but I know episode 6 (the back-story episode) was divisive on these boards (some loved it, some hated it).July 16, 2019 at 6:22 pm #1202979956
Anything to do with “Homecoming.” It was excellent, and a shame on Emmy voters for ignoring it, especially with Julia Roberts giving a career-best performance.
I was also rooting for Eric Lange, too. He would have been a great contender.
Also, Christine Baranski. She had a ton of industry support, but it didn’t translate to a nomination, sadly.July 16, 2019 at 6:20 pm #1202979953
SNL taking all these acting slots (especially in guest) is tiring, and taking away from great performances in actual comedy series! I always get upset about this each year.July 15, 2019 at 1:23 pm #1202976168
Kidman was fantastic, and I thought Shailene Woodley was phenomenal in her brief scenes.
I (generally) love David E. Kelley’s work, and I kept expecting Alan Shore to pop-up in those courtroom scenes. Celeste needs a lawyer like Shore, ha!July 11, 2019 at 1:27 pm #1202971264
As per the GoldDerby article about Janet McTeer in Ozark by Luca…
I’ve been thinking, if she can get nominated in Supporting Actress, she will probably win the Emmy! She would have a lot going for:
1) Amazing supporting performance (critically-acclaimed)
2) On a hot (newer) series (Ozark’s about to double+ their Emmy nom count)
3) Highly respected actress (2-Time Academy Award Nominee, Tony Award winner, former Emmy nominee)
Her main competition would be the GOT ladies (canceling each other out), her co-star (who would suffer from being a young nominee) and we don’t know if Susan will be nom’d. She would stand an excellent shot at winning… once again… the KEY being IF she can get nominated.
Janet McTeer had a nice presence, but she barely had anything to do. Most of her character was emotionless and stoic. She was much better in the fifth season of “Damages.” Hopefully she’ll have juicer material for Season 3.July 11, 2019 at 1:12 pm #1202971228
I feel like this will be the third season of American Comedy Story; this had been the trend for the past two seasons and I am not excited by the cast for the first time.
Same. They literally got rid of the best, acclaimed actress in the cast and kept the worst (or should I say, the ones I did not like as much).July 11, 2019 at 1:10 pm #1202971218
Looks like Helen Hunt and Cherry Jones are about to storm guest actress
I didn’t see Helen Hunt in the trailer? But she would be an amazing addition. You probably meant Holly Hunter?
But if we have Hunter, Hunt and Jones, that’d be fantastic guest casting.July 11, 2019 at 7:26 am #1202970622
It’s crazy how good the limited series categories (with emphasis on lead actress are this year, especially after a weak year last year.
After I watched “Sharp Objects” last summer (which I loved, and counted down every week to watch), I thought Adams and Clarkson were the frontrunners and nothing could top them.
Then I watched “Escape at Dannemora,” where Arquette’s transformational performance knocked me off my feet. The entire cast was outstanding.
Then Arquette gave an even better (in my opinion, I’m probably in the minority on that in these forums), a career-best performance in “The Act,” and Joey King went toe-to-toe with her wonderfully.
Then “Fosse/Verdon” premiered, and Williams as Gwen Verdon was so spectacular. She was Verdon, and so sympathetic in that role.
I think Arquette should win both lead actress and supporting actress, but I won’t be upset if she doesn’t win one or either of these, given how great her competition is.July 11, 2019 at 7:17 am #1202970606
I love Ann Dowd, and she was deserving to win for both Season 1 & 2. That being said, I thought the much-hyped backstory for Aunt Lydia was somewhat underwhelming. Dowd sold all of it beautifully (and this will be her tape), but I guess I wanted more.July 9, 2019 at 1:44 pm #1202968235
Sedgwick might have won in 2010 but the rest of her noms came in the last decade. 5 of The Closer‘s 7 seasons aired in the 2000s so I don’t see why she should be included in this decade’s best, considering she was even barely a part of it.
Close is more reasonable but still, her best years were during the first two seasons of Damages and hence, it’s understandable why she isn’t being mentioned.
I guess I’m just going off people who were actually nominated for consideration here (since some people in the poll weren’t/haven’t been nominated).
But it doesn’t mean those who were nominated/won early shouldn’t be discredited. Yes, Sedgwick won in 2010 and it was such an extremely well-deserved win. And, sure, she stopped getting nominated after win, but she was still excellent throughout. Yes, Close had her strongest material in Seasons 1 & 2, but she deserved all the acclaim for “Damages,” including within this decade.
Not many people have included Connie Britton, as well. I remember being around this forum when she first got nominated and the fanfare was through the roof.July 9, 2019 at 10:48 am #1202967964
Well, Dano’s performance was outstanding, as was Del Toro. Whatever category they are respectively placed in, they (probably Dano more in supporting), should be a frontrunner.July 9, 2019 at 10:42 am #1202967959
Michael K Williams deserves a nomination, but I watched and didn’t think he deserves a win. I agree that Dano gave the best supporting actor performance!July 9, 2019 at 10:41 am #1202967955
It pains me that people are forgetting contenders who were prominent much earlier in the decade: Kyra Sedgwick & Glenn Close, for example. Hello, folks! Those performances were out of this world good. Close would have been my number #1 for the last decade (2000-2009).July 8, 2019 at 6:47 pm #1202966825
This list doesn’t include people who were nominated this decade (and excludes some people actually won)! E.g., Kyra Sedgwick won in this decade. Glenn Close was also nominated for “Damages” twice in this decade, too. And sure, series, like “Harry’s Law” were forgettable, but Kathy Bates was pretty dang good in it (not that she’d make my top 10).
I’m just going off strictly people who were nominated:
1. Julianna Margulies
2. Kyra Sedgwick
3. Glenn Close
4. Claire Danes
5. Elisabeth Moss (“THT”)
6. Viola Davis
7. Connie Britton (“FNL”)
8. Robin Wright
9. Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”)
10. Vera Farmiga
