I didn’t agree but appreciated all the arguments being made over the past months about how Ozark could “sweep” (lmao at that now) but I thought that the moment Tom Pelphrey missed, it was clear that the actors just did not watch season 3. The actors aren’t everyone but they’re still a pretty key branch and it always seemed to me that people in general might have plugged Ozark into nominations without actually watching its best season, which is a damn shame.
A damn shame, indeed.September 20, 2020 at 10:12 pm #1203724400
If Ozark can sustain its quality, I can see Linney and/or Bateman winning for its last season.
That’s why I hope they really swing for the fences and take risks (within reason). They’re an underdog even when they’re buzzy, and maybe they’ll be able to find some vindication with tighter storytelling and just a teensy bit more action/tension.
Either way, I’m sure they know how much people enjoy their work.September 20, 2020 at 8:55 pm #1203724166
No? HBO will always be ahead of Netflix and Ozark 3 was not critically acclaimed, you just inflated these and rightfully flopped.
I’m talking specifically about Netflix’s overall wins and their broad rivalry against HBO.
And I didn’t inflate anything more than many other people did.September 20, 2020 at 8:53 pm #1203724161
next year will be boring Colman is already the frontrunner
She’s not the front-runner anymore. This means she was fourth place, at best. Maybe even fifth.
Olivia Colman is a likeable legend, but it’ll be nice to know that we won’t have to endure another year of, “It’s Colman’s to lose” before she even earns it.September 20, 2020 at 8:47 pm #1203724112
Crudup was such an obvious win. The mental gymnastics some of you had those past few weeks to not predict him.
Many of us didn’t pick him because his portrayal was like a caricature and his character was poorly written in a very uneven series.September 20, 2020 at 8:06 pm #1203723820
Ruth IS a male-aligning fan favorite of a show that has a great roster of strong female characters.
But that doesn’t necessarily have much to do with how Academy voters respond to the work.September 20, 2020 at 7:56 pm #1203723694
Maybe actors don’t love Ozark, they love Julia. Deserved.
That was definitely the conversation that was had earlier in the summer. Admittedly, I just didn’t think that was possible. Nothing against Julia, either. She’s just not my favorite part of the show.
That said, she almost seemed DEVASTATED to have won when her co-stars didn’t. And for that, I hope they reassure her. 🙂September 20, 2020 at 7:52 pm #1203723623

Ozark getting shut out for its best season I FEEL SICK
Their best season YET.
Honestly, this is hopefully just an inspiration for the Ozark team to swing for the fences, to do the best, the most interesting, compelling, TIGHT storytelling that they can do for those last 14 episodes. With any luck, they’ll have two more chances to have a day in the sun like Succession.
