My heart breaks by y’all thoughts about It’s a Sin. It was such a difference experience for me than what you’re describing that I really wish anyone could’ve felt the same way I did.
Don’t worry, I thought It’s A Sin was great too. I definitely prefer Pose overall, but that doesn’t take away from what this show achieved. Not sure where the intense dislike of some on here comes from, but it’s definitely very well liked in general. Lots of people out there who enjoyed it just as much as us! It’s not one of the best reviewed shows of the year so far for no reason. I’m just glad we’re living in a time where we’re able to get all this fantastic LGBT representation on TV at all. If we’re gonna talk about highly overrated limited series this Emmy cycle, look no further than The Queen’s Gambit. 👀
And if we’re gonna discuss which is the best LGBT show this Emmy cycle, it’s neither. I’m only two episodes into Veneno so far, but just those two episodes alone were already better than any in Pose or It’s A Sin’s latest seasons. And I say that as a big fan of both of those shows and their latest seasons. Highly urge anyone who’s into either of those shows to give it a shot. It’s available on HBO Max in the US, but it was created for ATRESplayer Premium in Spain.June 19, 2021 at 5:02 pm #1204309277
FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION
Comedy Series – Everything’s Gonna Be Okay
Comedy Guest Actress – Shalita Grant, Search Party
Drama Episode – The Grey, For All Mankind
Movie/Mini Supporting Actress – Jessie Buckley, FargoJune 16, 2021 at 11:56 am #1204303050
Honestly no real standout episodes for me in the comedy ballot outside of Search Party‘s In God We Trust. I’d say that’s the only lock for me there, and then the other two choices will have to be made with careful consideration.
Drama is easy for me, though. My top three there is:
For All Mankind – The Grey
Pose – Series Finale
This Is Us – Birth MotherJune 16, 2021 at 11:43 am #1204303032
Can Paloma Faith even act lol?
When did Paloma Faith start acting.
She’s been playing an anatagonist in Epix’s Pennyworth for the past two seasons. She’s honestly incredible at it and the only reason I keep watching that show. It’s such a strange, oddball character but she brings her to life perfectly. She knows how to chew scenery really well so I’m sure she’ll fit right in with a show like Dangerous Liaisons! I’m very excited to see her cast here anyway. Don’t want to see any more Paloma Faith disrespect after this!June 15, 2021 at 12:37 pm #1204301660
So excited. The Kings really knocked it out of the park again with this one. And you’re right, the new promos look super promising and like it’s gonna get even better. Having this and The Good Fight premiere so close to each other is a gift. I’m also currently watching their Spectrum show, The Bite, from last month, which I’m really enjoying. It truly is a Kings-themed June. Anyone not watching the shows from these two are truly missing out. Can’t wait!June 12, 2021 at 8:31 am #1204297771
I only feel confident in Fanning (whose show seems to be rapidly on the rise in popularity and actors branch support and she has a final season narrative)
How does Fanning have a final season narrative? The Great hasn’t been confirmed to be ending with its second season as far as I’m aware.
Smart too if Hacks returns on time but considering how much HBO/HBO Max have on their plate next season already I have a feeling it won’t.
Hacks is currently set to start filming this summer, so it definitely feels like HBO Max is fast-tracking its second season. I’d be surprised if it doesn’t air in time.May 23, 2021 at 2:26 pm #1204267880
Not sure I understand the Hannah Einbinder love on here. She’s doing a perfectly capable job, but she’s hardly outstanding at any point. I don’t think it’s all that comparable to Sandra Oh/Jodie Comer who both give flashier and more impressive performances. Einbinder is way more overshadowed by her counterpart than either person in that duo ever was. The only way I see Einbinder getting in is if she rides on the coattails of the show’s hype (such as someone like Marin Hinkle), but I don’t see Hacks being competitive enough to have that effect. I can understand her being considered because this is a bit of a weak year, but I’d say that in a more competitive year she’d easily be a non-factor. Even then, I’d be shocked if she makes it in this year too.May 17, 2021 at 1:15 pm #1204258856
For a show that’s obviously heavily influenced by British crime dramas, I’m surprised no one here has brought up the comparison with Happy Valley for this episode yet. This ending took a page straight out of that show’s book. It’s honestly striking how similar it was. I’d say Happy Valley definitely did it better overall, but that doesn’t take away from how amazing this scene turned out. Incredible ending. Hope it manages to keep this momentum going for the last couple of episodes.
P.S. Kate Winslet better not lose the Emmy to Anya. That’d just be embarrassing.December 4, 2020 at 2:37 pm #1203894827
This sounds fantastic. I would love to be a part of this! I’m obsessed with awards to the point of making my own on a yearly basis, so this sounds like a perfect opportunity for me.June 10, 2020 at 6:20 am #1203525226
Originally it was going to be the first three episodes premiering on June 25th with one episode a week after that.February 27, 2020 at 11:05 am #1203362836
I’m most excited to see how Tahar Rahim does here. He was fantastic in The Looming Tower.February 26, 2020 at 4:08 am #1203360866
The show has become far too involved with the whole Nacho, Gus and Mike shenanigans for my liking. They’ve always been the least interesting part of Better Call Saul to me, so it pains me to see them eat up more and more screentime as the show progresses. Season 1-3 really was the high point of this show, season 3 in particular, and it seems to be going in a steady trend downwards from there. The death of Chuck really was the turning point for it to become the show I didn’t want it to be, it seems.
I also just have to say that the scene where Mike gets mad at his grandchild last episode was laughable in Jonathan Banks’ acting. I’ve never understood the praise for his performance. The man can do one emotion, one tone in his voice and one facial expression. Anything beyond that, with few exceptions, and he’s entirely out of his depth.
The Gene stuff was great however. For as long as each episode focuses on Jimmy, there’s still good stuff.February 26, 2020 at 4:02 am #1203360854
It looks a bit too sappy and sweet to me. Almost more like a high-budget Lifetime movie than a serious look at the story of C.J. Walker. I’m not sure it’ll resonate with me, but maybe the actual show will turn out to be different.
