I am excited! This is some of the most fun I have on this site.
Could What we do in the Shadows be added to best ensemble? I legitimately believe it has a strong chance of being nominated, especially with its support on the forumsJune 28, 2020 at 10:48 pm #1203556472
Dulé Hill and Stockard Channing (season 1) for the West Wing
And maybe Brendan Doyle from downton abbeyJune 28, 2020 at 10:42 pm #1203556463
Supporting wouldnt be fraud, but lead is a fair characterization especially considering the finale and his part in “A God Walks into Abar.”
But, yea, its borderline and probably more fitting in supporting, but so was Carrie Coon in the LeftoversJune 13, 2020 at 8:29 pm #1203531850
Just finished binge watching Lodge 49, and it was some of the most uplifting, soul enriching television I’ve ever seen. Exactly what I needed at the moment.

Outstanding submissions by Brockmire and Lodge49!!!June 8, 2020 at 6:04 pm #1203522680
“On the Run” is one of the best comedy episodes of the season and a favorite of both everyone I know who watches the show and all the critics whom I follow. I can see it being nominated despite multiple submissions if the writers actually watch the show, in the similar vain of how Better Call Saul got “Five-O” and “Chicanery” nominated since writers new they were season standouts despite Better Call Saul submitting more than 5 episodes for writing both of those yearsJune 2, 2020 at 5:11 pm #1203513527
“The Long Offseason” – Brockmire [series finale]May 1, 2020 at 9:10 pm #1203458216
“The Curse” is outstanding. May be to early to say but this has got to be the best comedic ensemble of the year. Every single line of all 5 main characters makes me laugh.April 23, 2020 at 7:35 am #1203443275
Even though it probably won’t pay-off, I may have no choice but to predict Hank Azaria for Brockmire. For one, it’s Hank Azaria and he is at the top of the ballet and he gives a tour de force performance every week. But on the other hand, that much has been true for the same performance for the last three years and hasnt gotten him in soooApril 21, 2020 at 9:58 am #1203439140
This show is surprising me in how much I care about the characters. I’m very disappointed in how at least the critics have been treating it. The tone expertly mixes in real stakes with such wry humor.
The first part of the finale is a powerhouse performance by Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard delivered a stronger one in episode 5.
I hope this is the kinda show that will get Martin Freeman in for its first year and then explodes in emmy support in its next years in a similar vain to the Good Place and what Dead to Me is predicted to doFebruary 12, 2020 at 11:31 am #1203344420
Lupita Nyong’o needs to be in performer of the decade, but great stuff and I appreciate the effort that clearly went into it.
I will only have one FYC and that is for
Best Supporting Actress:
Tilda Swinton, Snowpiercer
No other performance has made my heart cheer, hate, and crawl. She was fully realized and spectacularly indescribableFebruary 4, 2020 at 10:32 pm #1203330459
The finale was moreso an incredibly directed episode of television than a well written one. Seriously, between this episode and the latest episode of Single Parents, Mike Schur has shown himself to be a fantastic television director. He should direct more of episodes of his shows.January 23, 2020 at 6:29 am #1203300026
No, Stevie rocksJanuary 5, 2020 at 4:22 pm #1203261917
You really nailed those three! About Orange, I would say that every scene with Fig this season was pure gold, what a character.
Thanks! I almost put Fig getting the pills for the pregnant immigrant as my Orange moment but decided that her observing the court was a more defining moment in her character arcJanuary 4, 2020 at 6:59 pm #1203260458
