I think there’s going to be public backlash regardless of which way the Chernobyl-WTSU races go. I just hope this forum doesn’t descend into the ignorance that I fear reddit will.

We’ll give you updates when we discover them and change the event.
John Lithgow and “The Getaway” must be removed because those “Dexter” episodes aired in 2009.
Ann Dowd was a regular cast member on “The Leftovers” and can’t compete as guest.
It depends on whether Dowd was nominated by us in supporting. If she wasn’t, I don’t see why she can’t be eligible for guest considering she was nominated in that category at the Emmys.
Edit: just checked and she was so all good!

I could see them giving it to kidman. Thats the only other person I could see them giving it to. Out of all the awards, The globes are the most unpredictable. Im confident with colman winning the critics choice, SAG, and the emmy. Im not confident in the globes.
When you get into the mindset of the HFPA most of their decisions make sense, and I struggle to see why they would vote for Kidman with the buzz that will be radiating from Colman’s performance.
The globes could give it to Jennifer Aniston. Do not underestimate her much anticipated return to TV.
I forgot about Aniston! You’re right, along with King she’s potentially one of the couple that has a chance of beating Colman. Their shows need to hit though.

I voted for my favourite (Interstellar) but objectively I think Gravity, First Man and maybe even High Life are better films. I haven’t seen Ad Astra though.

When I first saw it in May I truly thought that nothing could top it given how weak Limited has been these past few years.
I guess the competitiveness has been weak until this year, but we’ve had ACS, American Crime, Fargo, Big Little Lies, The Night Of, Wolf Hall and Olive Kitteridge in recent years, all of which were at the level of nominated dramas.

As long as the globes dont screw it up, She will sweep.
There’s literally no one else they could go with that follows their voting pattern. Maybe King but they don’t like her as much as Emmy voters.

I wanted to vote for Bledel in guest though…
I don’t know how they decided the placements – maybe if performances have been nominated in multiple categories they go with the bigger category (in this case supporting)?

I’m personally offended that Goldderby included Tomei, Jones and JENRETTE(!!!) but forgot Bledel and Wiley. Come on, guys.
Edit: Oh. They are in Supporting LMAO. Can we have them in guest also? They won those categories at the Emmys after all.
Nah. They’re definitely supporting players overall, and I like the idea of no multiple nominations for the same role.

No one’s discounting Jerome. As for Harris, I think he gave one of the sincerest performances in TV of the past few years; perfectly calibrated and humane in a way that isn’t overpowering. Valery Legasov was an ordinary man thrust into extraordinary circumstances and that was what Harris gave us. And that’s the beauty of his performance, seemingly unremarkable on the surface but so much more potent if one digs a little deeper.
The thing is, while this is all true, does that really match up to Jerome’s performance to the extent that you’d support Harris over him? To me, the only justifications are that he’s overdue after missing for The Crown and The Terror, and that Jerome is supporting until the last episode (and doesn’t ‘anchor’ the show in the same way Harris does). Because Jerome is undeniable based on the performance itself.

People are seriously discounting the level of performance Jerome accomplished because his career is still young. He literally embodied Korey Wise. It’s honestly one of the greatest performances by a young actor in television history (not even exaggerating).

This is especially true with Watson’s character, but the characters often felt like symbolic vessels through which the storyline may flow. The thrill wasn’t in watching the characters develop, but in watching the storyline unfold, and perhaps with such material and A1 directing it really didn’t need to be an acting showcase. But I would personally choose to honor the directing and writing before singling out any of the actors
If that was really the case, why are Harris and Skarsgard being pushed so hard? Watson’s performance was certainly up to par with Skarsgard’s (although his character had slightly more variety). It just seems off to me.
