Someone in Hollywood needs to make the Allison Janney/Maude thing happen. Inspired casting caelin cripps!
Laura Linney, in the old tape system, would get Lead Actress in a landslide. That episode has Emmy bait and brilliant performance written allll over it. I wouldn’t be shocked if she still pulled out a win here.

Top 3 from that list, imho.
SCHITT’S CREEK – “The Hike”
VEEP – “Veep”
THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT – “Timmy’s New Hobby”
All 3 scripts were spot on with writers giving the audience a touching, laugh out loud, emotionally vested episode of television.

Laura Linney playing two roles My Name is Lucy Barton could finally land her that much overdue Tony win as well.
If Christine Biranski isn’t nominated for Guest Actress for Bing Bang or the incomparable Diane Lockhart on The Good Fight, then I demand a recount. She deserves the statue for this episode, the writing was perfection the entire episode.
