O’Connor is officially guest eligible, so is Charles Dance. I am guessing they’ll still submit O’Connor in supporting. It’s slightly amusing that apart from Colman and Menzies, Bailey is the only one to appear in all 10 episodes. Doherty was surprisingly in more than half the season.
Here’s the number of episodes all major cast members appear in:
Olivia Colman (10)
Tobias Menzies (10)
Marion Bailey (10)
Helena Bonham Carter (8)
Ben Daniels (8)
Jason Watkins (7)
Erin Doherty (6)
Josh O’Connor (4)
Charles Dance (4)November 14, 2019 at 5:03 am #1203178979
People applied the same duo logic when predicting Comer for S1 at the Emmys and Rhys+Russell wins last year. This sort of thinking is inherently faulty because it ignores the competition at play entirely, among other things. Kidman can easily get nominated without Witherspoon. The same can happen with Comer and Oh.November 13, 2019 at 3:56 am #1203177249
If I could go a dollar overboard then I’d upgrade Netflix to HD.

I am unfamiliar with him. I’m glad now that I recently told him his posts burned a hole in my retina. This was before I knew anything about his proclivities.
He has gone on much much worse tirades than these, sometimes specifically attacking certain users. You won’t believe the kind of filth that scumbag can spew.November 12, 2019 at 9:08 pm #1203176873
Still don’t get why everytime something like this needs to happen for him to get banned. Everyone knows he is an uneducated, vulgar racist and homophobe. He is openly boasting about who he is so I don’t know why he isn’t banned immediately. Why allow him to stay in the first place?November 11, 2019 at 12:38 pm #1203174879
I found it more engaging than the previous episode, probably because the plot feels more focused and there’s less meandering. Wilson remains the best thing about the show by far. She was mind-blowing in this scene. That inflection in her voice, that rage… chilling. Keen felt more inexperienced than usual as a result though.November 11, 2019 at 12:03 pm #1203174830
Tobias Menzies is a much better Prince Philip than Matt Smith.
That seems to be the consensus and I’m very glad because Smith was easily the weakest link in that brilliant cast. His performance always verged on being caricaturish and I felt his performance only skimmed the surface at best.November 11, 2019 at 11:47 am #1203174798
many reviews that say that HBN is very inferior to Kirby.
I’ve gone through every review curated by Rotten Tomatoes so far and none had a negative thing to say about Bonham Carter. All are raves. The only mixed one is from NOW Magazine which says she is as fun as Kirby but less charming. The twitter reactions were equally favourable as the rest.
Her being underutilised is from a single reviewer from what I gathered, which is already countered by this statement from Radio Times:
Season three also gives a lot of time to Princess Margaret, which is a wise decision.November 11, 2019 at 5:42 am #1203174286
Are you hearing yourself? The case that you make about Newton can be made about Dowd with DOUBLE STRENGTH since she beat Newton for their first seasons, the latter was able to beat Dowd only when she was nominated with two superior than her colleagues from her own show. And unlike Newton, we have already SEEN Dowd’s performance in S3. Same goes for Strahovski, you case about Carter is that you have read that she has good reviews, well, we all have SEEN Strahovski and she has GLORIOUS reviews, she is seen as MVP by the fandom for a second season in a row.
The recent winner will obviously be higher than a previous winner who was bested by someone else. That is just indicative of what the academy likes more at the moment. I’d also argue that Dowd won the first time mostly on the strength of her show, which picked up four other awards that year. Last year, her show lost that support so she would have lost to Newton regardless of her co-stars competing against her. If you think she would have won with the show itself winning zilch then good for you.
Your capitalizing how glorious Strahovski’s reviews won’t change the truth about Bonham Carter’s notices, which were bigger and better than Yvonne’s this season. Anyone can check them out and I doubt there would be any disagreement with this statement. Her being the supposed MVP for the fandom is not a pertinent argument. I don’t see the relevance of bringing up us seeing Carter because the reviews and reactions are already there as mentioned. That won’t be a problem in a week anyway.
PS: Unless you stop being extremely crass and surly every time you say something, and start being more objective regarding THT (because you are acting like a stan right now honestly speaking), I don’t see the point in furthering this discussion.November 11, 2019 at 1:32 am #1203174161
Anybody can be snubbed but Phoenix is in no way comparable with Toni Collette. She wasn’t in a highly buzzed about billion-dollar movie. I think Emily Blunt and Jamie Lee Curtis had more of a chance for their horror movies than she did for her low grossing horror film that was only popular in certain circles. She was never getting a Best Actress nomination, people were just being delusional.
I won’t argue about Blunt because her film was better positioned than Collette’s, but Curtis definitely didn’t have a better chance at a nomination. Collette wasn’t a complete non-factor.November 10, 2019 at 9:01 pm #1203174047
To stay on topic, I find this to be the most overrated performance of the year:
She was sweet in the role but that category isn’t that devoid of worthy contenders, surely? I’ve just recently watched it and her performance doesn’t call for the hype she’s getting here. Diana Lin had a much richer performance but is barely even talked about.November 9, 2019 at 11:26 pm #1203173066

And it’s annoying when people start crediting/praising the actor for resembling the real life character they are playing, when it’s the make-up team that should actually be lauded. Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill and Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly are the most prominent examples in recent times.November 8, 2019 at 9:37 am #1203171129

Sally Hawkins- Similar to Keaton’s loss for Birdman, it’s ridiculous that the performance which carries the entire film is completely ignored, while the movie itself is winning multiple awards.
Meryl Streep- Might be her best nominated performance this decade.
Saoirse Ronan- Didn’t find anything noteworthy here. I wish Krieps had been nominated instead.
