Luca Giliberti is a Contributing Writer, movie and television lover, and an awards fanatic. He earned bragging rights by coming in second at predicting the 2018 Emmy nominations. He jumped up and down when Viola Davis (“HTGAWM”) won her first Emmy, cried tears of happiness when Darren Criss (“Versace”) won his, and shouted “Praise be!” when Ann Dowd (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) finally received hers. He will never forgive Oscar voters for denying Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me By Your Name”) Best Lead Actor at the 2018 Oscars – one his all-time favorite performances. Oh, and he’s still waiting for Lena Headey to win that Emmy for “Game of Thrones.” He loves Viola Davis and won’t apologize for wanting her to win every award.

Yeah, hate to be a broken record, but Kaley did THAT in episode 6. The scenes at the grave and then in the kitchen opposite Stone were immaculate. She’s coming for performer of the year for me personally.May 12, 2022 at 2:22 pm #1204950375
Watched episode 5 — I am not sure one Emmy is enough for Kaley’s work this season.May 5, 2022 at 8:17 am #1204942804
The music. 😭 Chills.May 5, 2022 at 4:06 am #1204942669
With each new episode of The Flight Attendant, I am just increasingly stunned by how phenomenal Kaley Cuoco is in this role. It could have gone so wrong had it fallen into the wrong hands, but she just nails Cassie from head to toe. It would really be a shame not to see her rewarded for this performance at all.May 4, 2022 at 1:41 am #1204941544
Watched this and absolutely adored it. Since there’s been a lot of praise for Kit Connor — and understandably so — I’m gonna shout out Joe Locke, who, I think, captured and displayed Charlie’s emotions perfectly. I hope we get a season 2!May 2, 2022 at 5:07 am #1204939549
Do you think it’s getting any actor in besides the trio, especially after the Tom Pelphrey and Janet McTeer snubs? And any other director you think is getting nominated besides Robin Wright (“Sanctified”) and Jason Bateman (“A Hard Way To Go”).
It’s very hard to characterize the acting branch’s relationship with this show. The Season 3 snubs for Pelphrey and McTeer were bizarre as all hell, but it’s typically difficult for new additions to land nominations for an already established show, if that makes sense, which may or may not explain their snubs. But sometimes final seasons produce nominations that no one sees coming, so I could absolutely see actors outside of the core trio get nominated. We should obviously look out for that certain someone in guest, I think.
As for directing, it depends on who is ultimately on the ballot, which we won’t know until we see it. I wouldn’t sleep on any potential contender, including Amanda Marsalis, to be honest. This branch adores this show.May 2, 2022 at 4:25 am #1204939524
I finished Ozark last night and thought the finale was incredible. I understand why it’s divisive, but I think the writers stayed loyal to these characters and this show in general, which is what you’d hope from a final season. I think the final season fired on all cylinders and will max out in nominations. When you search Julia Garner and Laura Linney on Twitter, the first result has “Emmy” behind their respective names — and for good reason. Also a big shoutout to all of this season’s directors, who did incredible work.May 1, 2022 at 1:11 pm #1204939014
Finished. Loved the ending, but my heart is broken.April 30, 2022 at 2:58 am #1204937791
I think people are taking IMDb ratings a bit too seriously. I have not finished the season myself yet, but the finale appears to be divisive/polarizing and that’s it — some people love it, others do not — which, frankly, is rather normal for a series finale. I don’t think this has any effect on its Emmy chances. It’s still going to get a ton of nominations and be win-competitive in the categories in which we assume it’s strong. Season 4, Part 2 is also the show’s most critically acclaimed installment, if you go by Metacritic (score: 79), which also has to count for something. This isn’t Killing Eve or Game of Thrones, the latter of which still got its most nominations ever despite competing for one of the most controversial TV seasons ever made. Least of all, however, would this affect Garner’s chances.April 23, 2022 at 4:34 am #1204928589
Sterling stumping for Mandy made some headlines, as did this past week’s episode in general. I really do think (and hope) she can squeak out that nomination — she really deserves it. As does Chrissy Metz, who is far and away, in my opinion, giving her series-best performance this season. And while they’re at it, voters could/should also (finally) pay Justin Hartley and Susan Kelechi Watson their due. NBC, please play your cards right!Not now
