I think Milo deserved nominations for the first three seasons (and maybe a win for season 2).
I would have nodded Sterling just for season 1 (where he also was win whorthy). He’s true he was good in season 3 second half but outshined by season 3 MVP Susan Kelechi Watson.November 17, 2019 at 10:17 pm #1203184185
I don’t care about This is Us anymore but every year people remove Milo like he isn’t going to just get name checked like Sterling.
This Is Us just had an amazing first half of the season and should keep its slot.
This is the very first year where I think Milo doesn’t deserve a nod (sadly Jack story is pretty over) but I certainly wouldn’t rule out another nomination.November 4, 2019 at 12:54 am #1203165079
any news if this is drama or limited at upcoming awards?November 4, 2019 at 12:51 am #1203165077
I agree with everyone here.
Not groundbreaking TV based on the fist two episodes.
But not a bad written show like some critics said..just a entertaining soapy drama.
If this wasn’t Apple series launch, but a new show on Netflix, or a network show, it would have been waaay more embraced by press.
Jennifer Aniston is really appealing in this, every scene with other actors you hope she’s coming back soon.
She’s having a moment and she has a chance at the Globes (if Taraji P. Henson can win for a soapy drama like Empire Jennifer can win for The Morning Show) but even if she would be deserving it’s hard to me imagine her beating Olivia Colman (or Jodie Comer beating Colman by the way).
Anyway I support a Aniston and Cudrup nomination at upcoming awards.
Duplass and Witherspoon are good too even if a bit less impressive.
Carell, usaully a wonderful actor, is miscast here and this isn’t a good performance.October 26, 2019 at 6:07 am #1203153561
Totally disagree, this season and season 3 have been the best ones of the show, during the first two seasons half of the stories never really worked and many characters were unbearable, especially Kate and Toby, many times Kevin too. In season 3 they found a new balance and now all storylines and all the characters work.
I totally agree.
Season 3 is so underrated. It had some lows (the notorious Waiting Room episode) but also lot of series highs, especially the Vietnam arc and Beth story. And from the season 3 finaly I knew season 4 would have been great.
Is there anything Milo Ventimiglia can’t do? Great direction from him, with all those storyline/timelines/characters. It worked perfectly and in a natural way.
Mandy Moore and Susan Kelechi Watson killed in their scenes.
I know buzz for this show is gone but it should make a comeback at all this winter awards. It’s the best drama out there at the moment, just after Succession.October 21, 2019 at 4:00 pm #1203146544
I love Milo Ventimiglia but I wonder how he can keep his lead slot considering he’s having less and less presence on the show…after Vietnam arc Jack story looks over. That’s why I wanted him to win for season 2 or 3October 20, 2019 at 5:55 am #1203144496
I can’t imagine Jennifer Aniston being better than Olivia Colman but we still don’t know anything about The Morning Show.
It should be good if Apple picked it as its series launch but how much good?
Aniston has a comeback story (even if it’s not a strong one like Zellweger’s) and she could be helped by recent Oscar and Golden Globe win from Colman.October 16, 2019 at 3:03 pm #1203140077
She broke any kind of record on Istagram…smart move from her!October 15, 2019 at 4:01 pm #1203138364
The Good Wife and Julianna Margulies
This Is Us and Milo Ventimiglia
Where are my favorites?! 🙁October 12, 2019 at 6:19 am #1203133142
Three episodes in a row NAILED.October 12, 2019 at 5:31 am #1203133114
I hope Litlle Fires Everywhere doesn’t premieres until summer so Reese won’t have 3 shows eligible in the same year…two it’s enough!October 11, 2019 at 10:13 am #1203132315
People was too much confident of Witherspoon going supporting.
Probably she’s a co-lead and the trailer, based maybe just on pilot, focused a bit more on Aniston.
Love them both. Good luck!September 30, 2019 at 1:06 pm #1203114373
Finished season 3.
Mixed feelings…something didn’t work this season, but still this show is so smart, unique, relevant..that I don’t understand how it can be so underrated.
As many said the show took too many risks for a 10 episodes season.
Let’s say that Diane obsession and pain towards Trump were so much better developed in season 2 (should have been nodded for Drama Series) compared to Diane actions against him in season 3.
To be honest while season 2 belonged to Diane season 3 was an ensemble season and most of castmembers delivered series best work like Cush Jumbo, Sarah Steele, Rose Leslie, Audra McDonald (season MVP)and Nyambi Nyambi.
On the other hand, while season 2 was Baranski best work in ten years of playing Diane, season 3 was a misstep.
The book club storyline never took off and she felt like a supporting character. I know she campaigned hard this year for that lead nomination, but she wasn’t really whorthy.
Of course I have high hope for a queen return in season 4, considering season 3 final shot.
Michael Sheen performance was awful.
I think this show should have a 5 seasons run.
The One whith Lucca becoming a meme should have been a writing contender…all worked in that particular episode.September 28, 2019 at 5:43 am #1203109913
Surprisingly I was interested in all the new characters and after one episode they already feel familiar.
I thought season 3 was great (Vietnam’s arc and Beth story were series highs) but yes the show needed to move on in some way.
And this premiere really looked like the beginning of chapter 2, the one that leads to the series finale (hope the show truly ends with season 6).
If it keeps this kind of quality I hope the show keeps its Drama series slot (sadly it will never win).
It’s almost impossible to pick a MVP but what I can say…Jack speech at the restaurant about Niki monster fear once again brought me near tears.
Milo Ventimiglia created a memorable character and, I don’t know how, I hope with all these new storyline they find a way to let him be, like he’s alway been, the heart of the show.
