Was coming here to say Isabelle Huppert in Things to Come (or Elle, what a f*ckn year she had) and I see that Kelvin said the same. And sure, why not DDL in TWBB or MLF.August 31, 2020 at 11:37 am #1203678139
Hi, someone who works in the international refugee space here, also an Australian. An asylum seeker is always legal, regardless of the lawfulness of their mode of arrival. The process they go through to have their refugee status determined is called Refugee Status Determination, and it determines, not authorizes or legalizes, their status as a refugee. It is not a decision, so much as an uncovering of fact (i.e. does the asylum seeker possess the characteristics of a refugee as per the law). It is a nuance, and very widely misunderstood. All asylum seekers are lawful and all asylum claims are lawful. Australia (and the USA) has been called out repeatedly by UNHCR and law bodies for its consistent misapplication of the law, resulting in asylum seekers being called illegals and the denial of their rights.
Hey, THANK YOU so much for this seriously!!! Completely changing the way I’ll discuss this. I so appreciate it.August 27, 2020 at 2:32 pm #1203670711
Why is “Lesbian” even in the title here? The number of times I’ve seen “Straight Drama” lmaoAugust 19, 2020 at 9:59 pm #1203656073
She checked that phone so well. Give her the Emmy!August 17, 2020 at 1:43 pm #1203651233
For sure. It should be kept in limited if Michaela doesn’t plan on continuing. It ended perfectly anyway.
She seems to want to. Whether HBO will greenlight it remains to be seen. Also, v interesting comment upthread. I’m going to pay more attention to the lines/boundaries in particular. Thanks!August 16, 2020 at 1:28 pm #1203649230
Just binged the whole thing again. I can’t believe people in the US have had to wait a week between episodes. The rewatch reaffirmed to me that this is essential viewing. We need a Michaela acting-writing-directing sweep.
Honestly the weeks in between are so worth it; I would be miserable if I had already binged this show. The space gives me something to look forward to. And YES to sweep.August 9, 2020 at 6:19 pm #1203636424
I really don’t want to see every show tackle COVID. Sometimes you just want to not think of it. So late year filming. I believe this show takes awhile to film due to all the location filming. So probably won’t air in next year Emmy eligibility. They should film two seasons back to back . where did Nicole Kidman mention BLL 3? Considering she has so many back to back limited series. Don’t see when she would have time.
There was an Emmy roundtable talk with Kidman, Blanchett, King, Washington, Oh, Jackman, Strong, etc. recently.. in it, she mentioned BLL3 could include it, but still no definitive plans about BLL3 I doubt…
Jackman mentioned on the talk that a lot of art that focuses on present-day issues typically ages better. I think he said this in reference to a movie made around the time of WWII that was not well received but is now very much respected, and it’s important that we have the perspective of the times reflected in our arts. But yeah, COVID could be a little much. It’s a little useless to discuss this in hypotheticals, I suppose. I’d need to see the product.August 7, 2020 at 10:18 pm #1203633723
I guess they could include Covid-19 as a storyline and finish it on time to compete at the winter awards or at least for it to air by May?
Strong mentioned in an actor’s roundtable interview that they’re likely incorporating COVID-19 into the storyline. Kidman mentioned wanting to do this with BLL3 too.
Edit: Ah I see on the last page someone beat me to this.August 7, 2020 at 10:17 pm #1203633721
Wanted her lead to be solo, but oh well. Megan better bring it. Honestly, love her, but she ALWAYS uses the same flow and lyrical content, which is a shame as she can actually spit. The DaBaby of female rap.
Listen to Stalli (Freestyle), Big Ole Freak, Cash Shit, and Last Week in H Tx and then come back and retract that statement.August 4, 2020 at 7:10 pm #1203627094

Having now seen all the competition I’ve decided Haas should sweep. I can see why people expect/want King/Blanchett to win and the political climate makes that likely/inevitable, but for me Haas gave the most natural performance that lingers. Her material was just another level.
I think this race is becoming a question of “will people watch Unorthodox?” In my mind, if they do, then Haas wins. I don’t see a world in which you watch the show and still decide to give the Emmy to King or Blanchett.August 3, 2020 at 10:54 pm #1203625504
I don’t think Steinem’s response is damning by any means… At this point in the US, the ERA victory is more of a symbolic one, contrary to what she suggests. Anyone who makes you think we’re in peril without it is deluding you… her point about the insurance industry being predominantly responsible certainly stands; the show omits that from the narrative. But the focus of this story is on Schlafly and she definitely had some impact, helping Reagan establish a “family values” platform to run on and giving him her mailing list. I see Steinem is still simping for the Affordable Care Act, and has yet to support Medicare For All. I frankly can’t take this letter seriously because while Steinem certainly made great strides for justice in the 70s, this is the same woman who said in 2016 that young women only support Bernie Sanders because they see that boys like him. And YES to the user who said, a few pages back, that it’s ridiculous how she’s tearing down these actresses, which proves her to be petty. Did anyone feel like this show was a catfight? She went on and on about this show being a catfight but it was just extremely intelligent women debating and lobbying for power. I don’t think know that she even watched it.July 29, 2020 at 5:24 pm #1203613764
Finished this last night. What a fantastic show. A really important show. And the detainees in the center are played by actual refugees who have gone through the process of legalizing. This must’ve been such a special project for all to work on.
Yvonne is fantastic. Fayssal Bazzi is…simply immaculate. Truly fell in love with him, watching his work. I hope he wins next year. I don’t see the other leads getting a lot of love online but they were excellent too. Superb cast, really good writing and directing… The show prompts important conversations… 10/10.
Between this, I May Destroy You, Mrs America, Unorthodox, and Unbelievable, I am so overwhelmed. TV rn >>>July 29, 2020 at 5:15 pm #1203613749
I have to say, I’ve come to absolutely dread nomination morning because of all the anti-Black comments about some actors only getting nominated because they belong to a marginalized group, one that is very much underrepresented by the entertainment industry.
