I love following award shows. I also love movies and music. My favorite movie is The Color Purple with The Wizard of Oz coming in second. My favorite actress is Bette Davis and my favorite singer is Aretha Franklin.

Conchata Ferrell on Two and a Half Men – She breathed life into every scene that she was in. I wish that she had less appearances so that she would have qualified for Guest Actress in which she would have had a stronger chance to win. Conchata was nominated twice for Supporting Actress in 2005 and 2007 with 2007 having a good submission “Repeated Blows to His Unformed Head”April 4, 2020 at 5:25 pm #1203410163
Zara Cully as Mother Jefferson on The Jeffersons
She should have won an Emmy for this role and she knew how to threw shadeApril 4, 2020 at 3:27 pm #1203410077

Let’s hope Viola Davis doesn’t get nominated this year, her speeches are always cringeworthy. I don’t want her to attend this year as a nominee, she might win and we’re going to have another cringey speech.

Considering how much the emmys loved Frasier, it is baffling that they never considered Peri Gilpin for an award – she’s hilarious!
Elizabeth Mitchell on Lost was great – in “one of us” she delivers one of my all-time favorite performances, small or big screen.
The supporting cast of The Closer was pretty great but since they have not gotten a lot of material or juicy storylines, I can see why they were never up for awards
I concur on the mention of Peri Gilpin. She is one of the main cast members to never get nominated for an Emmy and that is baffling and sad. Peri had storylines and screen time that should have gotten her at least 2 Emmy nominationsApril 3, 2020 at 8:37 pm #1203408995

Even I have to admit it is massively wishful thinking on Kevin’s part; we have the unpleasant and stark potential for the winner of best comedy actress to really be an undisguised Lifetime Achievement Award *coughOHaracough*, and that’s no way to do business.
I believe this is broadcast’s last hurrah at the Emmys. Maybe enough of the Academy membership will stem the streaming tsunami for one year and give TGP broadcast’s first series win since 2014. Yes, the situation is more dire in drama (no Big Four winner since 2006). Schitt’s simply does not have the pedigree, being on an outlier, mom and pop cable channel which draws less than 370,000 viewers on average every week that a broadcast network show has. 92, 100, 98 and 100 on RT for seasons 1-4.
What I seek is at least 15 nominations. Never mind wins; you’ve got to at least get your foot in the door first. In an ideal world, that is attainable. Pretty much everybody can submit Whenever You’re Ready as their tape. KB can add The Funeral to End All Funerals as its director. Schitt’s is being propped up by only critics and folks on here. I think the release of the complete series (and season 4 individually) on blu-ray/DVD on May 19 will be a difference-maker. NBC should send a free copy to every Emmy voter, if they can do that. The disrespect flung toward TGP needs to end. Maybe it’ll be a Return of the King deal; a sweep that honored not just that movie, but the LOTR trilogy as a whole.
We’ll see, won’t we?
Catherine O’Hara winning would not be a life achievement award. Catherine O’Hara has consistently delivered the laughs since the beginning of Schitt’s Creek and should have 2 of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Emmys. Catherine winning would be well deserved and I am rooting for her.April 2, 2020 at 8:22 pm #1203407337
Someone needs to crash the meeting where they discuss the potential honorees and demand that Betty White be included as an honoree
