It’s laughable that Kelly Jenrette got nominated over Jodi Balfour and Rinko Kikuchi that same year.
The Marisa Tomei erasure. She was far more robbed than both of them. I’m fine with Jodi Balfour snub to be quite honest. She really didn’t do anything that impressive imo and I personally thought she was miscast.May 11, 2021 at 12:56 pm #1204251038
The way Kate is stomping on her competition. We stan.
Loved episode 4. And that twist at the end… really great.May 10, 2021 at 3:13 pm #1204249869
Milo could definitely win in Supporting, if submitted there. I don’t think Menzies is winning, unless The Crown pulls a Schitt’s Creek, and Milo has three lead noms for the show. It could be the perfect opportunity to reward him.May 9, 2021 at 7:15 am #1204248073
An interesting question is whether The Queen’s Gambit beats Watchmen’s nomination count (26). The show is even stronger than Watchmen was going into nominations, but the ensemble isn’t as strong and I don’t think it will get the number of acting nominations Watchmen did.
I’m only predicting three acting noms for TQG. ATJ, Camp and Heller.May 8, 2021 at 4:40 pm #1204247330
I am predicting Claire Foy, but she is not like Cherry Jones and Margo Martindale, because those two even tho they did nothing in their submissions, appeared multiple times before, so it sounds like they did more than they actually did. Everyone remembers that Claire Foy only had one scene in The Crown season 4. In case she had appeared more here and there, then I’d agree. Charles Dance fits the mold better. He didn’t do much, but he was in a whole episode with multiple scenes, so for the voter filling his ballot in july it sounds like he did much more.
I disagree a lot on Cherry Jones. She only appeared on the show in the two episodes she got nominated for and another one in season 3, and she literally didn’t do anything at all, in any of them.
Also, what you said doesn’t really make much sense considering Claire was literally THE lead of the show for the first two seasons. Elizabeth started with ther. And she also won the Emmy.May 8, 2021 at 7:32 am #1204246827
I also think we are understimating Claire Foy. Yeah, she’s basically a cameo but they don’t care, just like they don’t care that much about the guest categories. Last year, the Drama Guest categories were absolutely atrocious. Lazy name checks everywhere. Foy is in the Drama series
winnerfrontrunner and she’s reprising her Emmy winning role.May 8, 2021 at 7:01 am #1204246800
Is Glenda Jackson not eligible for her superb performance in Elizabeth is Missing??? She was nominated for a BAFTA award for her performance; it aired on PBS in January 2021 – I noticed she was not on the predictions list for Best Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie…
She already won the International Emmy for it, so that makes her ineligible.May 8, 2021 at 4:42 am #1204246740
This first four episodes are definitely better than the first ones from the previous season. The writing is it’s biggest problem but overall I’m enjoying it. Elisabeth Moss, Madeline Brewer and Amanda Brugel definitely the standouts, so far, for me. More material for Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski please!!! Both are killing with their current (and short) material, but we obviously want more!!! And Bledel girl?! Where are you?! That bland screentime in ‘Nightshade’ was not it.May 8, 2021 at 4:24 am #1204246732
Just here to say that, if she’s eligible, Amanda Brugel not only should be nominated but she should be win competitive as well.May 6, 2021 at 1:36 pm #1204245075
Pen15 is probably competing next year as well with S2B, so i hope it could be like Dead to Me where Applegate joined first and then came Cardelini.
I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I don’t see one of the Pen15 girls getting in alone. It’s either both or neither imo. Neither has name recognition, like Applegate, and there’s still a chance the acting branch hasn’t caught up with the show.May 6, 2021 at 1:16 pm #1204245041
Ted Lasso blowing up is the best thing that could’ve happened to Dickinson. I’m predicting it for Steinfeld and Writing, and while I feel secure about neither prediction, that Better Things comparison feels very apt.
Honestly, Dickinson deserves to blow up in noms. Its second season was absolutely incredible (much better than season 1) and deserves major recognition. It’s also quite original in its approach regarding the subject matter. I do agree, however, that its best chances are in Writing (sadly).
