Was that necessary? She’s not dead yet, and will likely be nominated once more.
If there wasn’t enough gas left in the tank to take her all the way last season, why on earth should anyone think there will be in the future? She had the narrative, the televised precursors, and was a surefire winner until Colman (rightfully) snatched BAFTA and Oscar.
If the majority of the industry wanted her to win, she would have prevailed a few months ago.
And to answer your question: Yes, which is precisely why I said it.May 19, 2019 at 10:17 am #1202899777
She’ll never win.May 15, 2019 at 5:41 am #1202894741
Finale was wonderful, but I still think the show should have ended after season five.
Regardless, JLD earned her 179th Emmy with that episode.
I think my favorite part was when Selina called Marjorie “Peppermint Patty.”May 10, 2019 at 6:50 am #1202887884
Judy will likely be this season’s Jackie.May 10, 2019 at 6:45 am #1202887876
Pleasantly surprised by this little gem! Performances were excellent.May 7, 2019 at 12:34 pm #1202884154
The Limited Series Actress category is primed to be an embarrassment of riches.May 7, 2019 at 5:46 am #1202883798
This season is pretty unremarkable in just about every single way. This show deserves a better send-off, honestly. Unless the finale is an absolute knockout, I wouldn’t predict it to win a single Emmy, and I’m someone that felt JLD deserved each win.May 3, 2019 at 9:12 am #1202878763
Williams continually steals the show in this supremely uneven series. There was a moment in the last episode where she was talking to Joan Simon in the hospital, and just as Williams’ face began to register what her ailing friend was telling her, they cut away! You do not cut away from Michelle Williams when that face cracks and she starts to quietly lose it on screen. I actually yelled WHY when I saw this. It could have been an Emmy-winning moment for her, truly.
The whole shebang is a mixed bag for me. Being a theatre geek and Fosse fan, I was super jazzed when I heard about this project. But the last episode really made me wonder if I would continue watching had it not been for Williams always delivering.
Michelle will easily get nominated but she faces stiff competition from Arquette, King and Adams.May 3, 2019 at 9:04 am #1202878758
I agree with whomever said this series could have been an episode or two shorter. But the performances kept this one in my “must see” list for the last two months.
King should be nominated in Lead, but you never know. I think Arquette stands an excellent chance of not only being nominated for two performances, but she could easily win both Lead and Supporting.April 30, 2019 at 8:25 am #1202874083
As brilliant as JLD is, this show should have ended after season five. It would have been the perfect run. Instead HBO decided to SHOWTIME the sh*t out of this one, and let it run past it’s prime.April 22, 2019 at 9:52 am #1202862054
Laurie Metcalf losing to Allison Janney will always annoy me. Metcalf was the early frontrunner that got skunked when the televised hardware surprisingly shifted to Janney from the Globes on.April 17, 2019 at 5:56 pm #1202857210
Arquette, unlike Close, has an incredibly strong project surrounding her.April 10, 2019 at 8:43 am #1202846878
Finally caught up with this one, and holy nuts. Arquette is absolutely winning. If she goes Supporting for THE ACT, she is likely taking home two Emmys in one evening. I adored Sharp Objects, and thought Amy Adams gave her best performance to date. However, no one is beating Patricia this season. No one.April 5, 2019 at 5:55 pm #1202841699
If someone could do it, it’s Arquette. I wouldn’t bet against her this season.
