Just finished the season. Has nothing on season three which I found to be more enthralling, but this was still quite good, with an excellent finale that set up Part 2 perfectly (happy I can say Robin Wright is coming for her first directing nomination and her 9th overall). I do agree with someone that I saw said that it might’ve had too much going on with too many storylines (such as with Wyatt who is as annoying as ever) but the finale truly sets out for a killer finale that will hopefully be Part 2.
Solis and Linney were such a great pair this season, I absolutely loved their interactions which built on the previous season. Solis was quite good as well, and bringing Herrera into the fold as his nephew was great as well. Herrera’s Javi was quite the exciting villain, he’s hella reckless, but even scarier he’s stupid with power. He should make for an entertaining villain in the next part as well. I love Laura and she was great here as usual, but she was just better in season three, with better material. I highly doubt she’s winning for Part 1 (if she does at all). Still, she sold it all. Now Julia though WHEW 💀 her performance has aged for me over the years but damn did that finale just reign me back in for her. She is a huge fucking lock for that Emmy.
Bateman, well this was probably his weakest season I have to say. His character is kinda just this never-ending backdrop at this point that’s just there to tidy up loose ends. Hublitz outsells even (though I’ve always liked her and thought she did anyways 💀) , who might I add, Charlotte’s character has come to a great full circle to emulate Wendy. Jessica Frances Dukes was also great, as she was last season, though there was a scene in the beginning where McKinley Belchor III and I was about to fume hard at him returning because he’s such a terrible actor on this show, but thankfully that passed.January 18, 2022 at 10:00 am #1204735997
Whew Robin coming for her overdue Emmy 👏 she was robbed of noms in directing for House of Cards already.January 12, 2022 at 11:26 am #1204721307
Love the JLaw and Cate mentions 👏 and DLU and WSS capping with a HoG smash too. Penélope was my personal winner this year so that was super sad to see her miss here. What an unbelievable tank. Today was not a good for Spencer or KStew at all either. Man did it tank here.January 8, 2022 at 3:14 pm #1204706180
The Academy nominated Jackie Earle Haley, who played a pedophile in Little Children and had a disturbing scene where his character masturbated in front of his date in the car. I don’t think they would care much about Alaina playing a grown woman who dated a 15-year old kid in Licorice Pizza.
Please the two aren’t even comparable. Little Children is a suburban drama where a supporting character is a pedophile that is a literal convicted criminal that got out of jail and the only sympathy to be had for him is when his mother dies. Licorice Pizza portrays and markets a ephebophiliac relationship as some lovely great romance that is rooted throughout.January 6, 2022 at 6:25 pm #1204701570

“Huge Movie Stars” with the names in this thread being thrown around?December 29, 2021 at 1:59 pm #1204685630
I’m now predicting Murray Bartlett AND… Jake Lacy to get nominated for Limited Actor, but not Jennifer Coolidge
Still can’t see any hope for the Scenes From a Marriage leads. Really don’t see SAG going for such a buzzless and grim show.
Well at least the gif is matching your predictions!December 28, 2021 at 11:54 pm #1204684734
Just finished Mass and I’ll be the first to say I’m not an Ann Dowd fan but lord was she amazing here. She truly deserves an Oscar
