No, he’s just better than Jerome. And Jerome is probably supporting. People don’t seem to appreciate subtle acting.
No one is denying that Harris gave a masterful performance, but subtle doesn’t equal automatically better. Isn’t it possible that people appreciated the subtle complexities of Harris’ performance yet still thought that Jerome was better?September 21, 2019 at 7:52 pm #1203091549
I know I was just raving Unbelievable, but I just finished Years and Years and HOLY SHIT. It’s right up there with WTSU and Chernobyl in terms of quality and the ending to Episode 4 is probably one of the most powerful moments I’ve seen on TV, ever. I can’t remember watching anything that made my stomach turn and my eyes well up with tears as much as that sequence. I’m worried that its early release will prevent it from hitting with voters but I’m stanning this until the end as it’s incredibly deserving.September 21, 2019 at 7:35 pm #1203091540
I’m almost certain Streep would have won here, SAG clearly thought there was no viable alternative to Streep after they already rewarded Winslet in Supporting. I’m struggling to see Jolie winning a second or Hathaway or Leo winning for indie films otherwise.
Winslet should have realistically won for Sense and Sensibility as she had that SAG+BAFTA combo. And as much as I love The Iron Lady, Streep was more deserving here and Viola winning in 2011 would have been justice.September 21, 2019 at 4:38 pm #1203091354
Collette was 100% supporting in my eyes. There was almost always more focus on Wever between the two. To me it’s kind of like BLL where Wever is Kidman, obviously lead, Dever is Woodley (season 1), probably a lead but close enough to supporting that it wouldn’t shock anyone for her to submit there. And Collette is Dern (Season 2), a major character with plenty to do but still clearly a supporting role. I don’t really think Collette is on the same level as Wever and Dever with her performance so I don’t really care about her anyway.
Collette was the only one who didn’t have an episode totally centered on her (Ep 1 for Dever and Ep 2 for Wever), I think that’s part of the reason why she feels like second fiddle to Wever’s character development throughout most of the series. I would feel comfortable putting her in supporting but also I’m worried she and Dever would vote split there so idkSeptember 21, 2019 at 2:24 pm #1203091182
Actors can only get one but other categories can have the same person nominated twice. Steven Soderbergh was nominated twice for Best Director in 2000. It is sort of a dumb rule. If you gave two of the best performances of the year you should be nominated. Golden Globes allow it but it hardly ever happens. Dennis Hopper in 1986 is the only one I can think of off the top of my head.
Streep was double nominated in Musical/Comedy in 2009 (Julie and Julia + It’s Complicated) and Tim Robbins for Musical/Comedy in 1992 (The Player + Bob Roberts)September 20, 2019 at 11:34 am #1203089079
Remember when some were saying that Colman would lose SAG to Streep..September 20, 2019 at 10:47 am #1203088993
This may be way out of left field, but… homegirl being snubbed at the Emmys after years of delivering consistently is a crime. The show is a mess now so she’ll never get another shot, but she should get in here as a nod to her unwavering consistency for 15 years: FYC, Ellen Pompeo in Grey’s Anatomy

I know I already did one, but Sian Clifford winning would be incredibleSeptember 20, 2019 at 8:58 am #1203088784
It’s weird to think about how limited series were on the decline several years ago., hence why the Television Academy merged the Miniseries and TV Movie categories. Now, there’s a ton of limited series being made every year.
This has got to be the best Limited category in recent history, maybe ever. And with Unbelievable already in the mix for next year, the Limited category is quickly turning into the most interesting one as wellSeptember 20, 2019 at 8:56 am #1203088773
I certainly didn’t mind Timothée Chalamet missing out for Beautiful Boy. Not only did the blatant category fraud bother me, but his stans were at their most unbearable that year. Yes, he’s a brilliant actor and he deserved to win for Call Me by Your Name, but they act like he’s the most overdue performer in the world. He’s in his early 20s, he’s got plenty of time to win.
While I agree with this, Rockwell making it in for Vice was inarguably a really bad choice.September 20, 2019 at 8:48 am #1203088746
Not only is Chernobyl vs WTSU an epic showdown, but I think any of these series could win in any other year. As much as we’ve banded off into certain tribes in this category, we have been truly blessed as opposed to the anemic offerings last year (although this one would be for the ages if The Act made it in as well)September 20, 2019 at 6:51 am #1203088515
Jerome slander on my GD feed?September 19, 2019 at 7:24 pm #1203087801
Regina King was better in American Crime S2 than in S1September 19, 2019 at 4:09 pm #1203087497
i like originally,so i hope Lupita gets nomination over Alfred who movie is copy of Susan Sarandon dead man walking
Woodard and Sarandon literally have opposite character arcs lol, Woodard is a prison warden fighting with her conscience in order to execute someone while Sarandon is an activist fighting against the death penalty. Same topic, totally different internal struggles
