It may well have happened aplenty in other shows before but I have to say I was astonished to see Mare have her badge and gun taken away in episode 3! The show has really kept me guessing in terms of where it’s going to go next, it’s so revelatory to me. I assume that she is going to continue unofficially cracking the case, but it’s a really interesting plot development.
Love how word of mouth buzzy this has become, friends and family and colleagues are all talking about it.April 30, 2021 at 6:07 am #1204235906
Olivia Williams is great but i have to admit i was initially surprised at her casting as Camilla, obviously hair and make up will do a great job, but to my mind she reminded me of more of a Cherie candidate.
The casting is really going to be so stacked, can’t wait.April 29, 2021 at 5:36 am #1204234616
I’m starting to consider WandaVision getting snubbed in the acting categories but still making Directing and Series, like The Alienist, which didn’t get Directing. Erivo does stand a real chance at getting nominated and probably Olsen and Mbedu would be the more vulnerable. It’s not like Mbedu is a nobody: She’s an International Emmy darling. It would be a shame, though.
I think only Hahn is getting in of the acting categoriesApril 28, 2021 at 7:09 am #1204233244
For me it was Colman. Glenn’s overdue narrative felt stronger with voters to me than Boseman’s, and dementia resonating so deeply with so many people is why I predicted Hopkins over Boseman.April 28, 2021 at 7:05 am #1204233242

Really looking forward to the finale, I thought MacDonald, McClure and Maxwell Martin have all been really strong this season.
I’m pretty sure that a future season is usually not confirmed until after the finale has aired, but there’s a lot of speculation that this is the last, and with Ted’s retirement and the merging of AC12 it really does feel like it could be the case.April 28, 2021 at 6:38 am #1204233208
Limited/Movie Actress 3. Kate Winslet, Mare of Easttown – I just want to start off by saying that I have really enjoyed seeing Mare of Easttown so far. Winslet is divine in it and it’s one of her best performances since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I won’t call her a lock purely because I refuse to do so with 3 nominees in a category of 5, I will say that I think she’s likely in. She won’t win though. The finale of Mare of Easttown will really make or break it so if it is met with incredible acclaim and buzz then I may reconsider. But Winslet’s problem (and this applies to a lot of these Hollywood stars making the move to television) is that she’s a giant. Voters are well aware of her capabilities as an actress (7 time Oscar nominee and she won for a showy transformational role!) so it really is no surprise that she’s delivering a big performance. Whilst it is evidently the opposite with the AMPAS, the television academy has tended to gravitate to performances that have the greatest shock factor as of late. Look at Mark Ruffalo and Michelle Williams managing to pull off wins for career high transformational performances and so far being the only non Kidman (who won when the A list murder mystery formula was a novelty and for a performance voters were unaware Kidman had in her) A listers to win in this era of television. Look at Laura Linney, Olivia Colman and Sandra Oh losing to the likes of Zendaya, Jodie Comer and Claire Foy. Look at Riz Ahmed, Jharrel Jerome and Darren Criss being able to pull off wins in spite of not being seasoned thespians whilst Paul Mescal lost for a more subdued performance to an A lister. I think Winslet’s situation is comparable to that of Amy Adams and Cate Blanchett. Renowned Hollywood A listers appearing in acclaimed prestige miniseries with win worthy roles but due to the lack of novelty behind their shows (I say this as someone who thought Mrs. America was quite innovative but I’m saying more that a majority didn’t) and the lack of passion outside the central performance and one or two supporting players, they get nominated but aren’t really win competitive. Even if they should be win competitive.
I agree with this, though I do think there was some really strong creative novelty with Sharp Objects and Adams playing against type, but it coming in the shadow of BLL did dent its reception I think. Lest I say it was almost too smart for voters, but…April 28, 2021 at 6:26 am #1204233192
Kind of surprised by the Anderson snub but she has an iffy Bafta track record, iirc. The Corrin snub makes me think it wasn’t the fact that Anderson was playing Thatcher was the issue, but it’s does seem curious to overlook both those two but consider Tobias Menizes and as much as I love HBC, her too.
V happy, though, for the Sex Education love and for Michaela Coel being recognised. Interesting that neither The Queen’s Gambit nor Bridgerton (outside of the Must See moment) got anything. Happy Quiz got in at editing but would have liked to have seen more.April 28, 2021 at 6:17 am #1204233182
Kate’s acting in the scene with the pediatrician was just phenomenal, it had me gasping for air.
There seems to be a lot of buzz about this show on Twitter (and rightly so!), Kate is BACK baby.April 23, 2021 at 4:37 am #1204216719
How many Spirit Best Actress winners have gone on to win the Oscar? My gut says not many but hoping for some stats to surprise me.April 21, 2021 at 5:46 am #1204212592
In for Kate Winslet but, can’t deny, this looks like Sharp Objects-lite
I thought the same thing too, especially with the drink driving!
Watched the first episode and loved it, really like the slow-burn, unglamorous style and love Kate Winslet so will happily watch anything she’s in (except maybe collateral beauty)April 21, 2021 at 5:40 am #1204212587
Wonder if Kate Winslet will be a big presence for Mare of Easttown? I watched the first episode the other day and loved it, plus it’s getting amazing reviews. Interestingly it reunites her with her Mildred Pierce co-star Guy Pearce, and for which she won her Emmy for.April 21, 2021 at 3:12 am #1204212477
Hey guys! I figured i’d been reading for long enough so about time I dipped my foot in the water.
I really want Carey to win but think that it’s between her and Viola. I don’t think Frances will win a third in such quick succession. It’s such a strong group this year that I won’t be unhappy if any of the group win, but I think the symbolism of the Acadamy awarding a performance of a woman like Cassie would be quite something.Not now
