Devastated by this news, but not surprised.
At this point I’m just happy I lived to see full season of that universe. Never, ever thought it would happen.September 17, 2020 at 9:36 am #1203712732
Just saying British performances Jodie Comer has praised tend to have been nominated at the Emmys (*coughs* Sian Clifford, Paul Mescal *coughs*)
She also praised many times I May Destroy You.
I hope next year her magic “awards-prediction-powers” will work with this show too.September 8, 2020 at 10:50 pm #1203694304
Read carefully, it won’t change anything.
Yeah, twitter reacted at first like it always reacts. But now more and more finally realize that this is really…not a big deal, because as someone said, pretty much every single BEST P. nominee from the last 3 or 4 decades met the criteria.
I’m sure there will be a lot of conversations about it and maybe even some changes to these rules. Personally I don’t know what to think. I guess I don’t necessary think this is the way. Mainly because changes don’t come from checkbox mentality that studios and networks promote when it comes to diversity (I think Sandra Oh mentioned that in her interview with GB), but from deeper and more meaningful understanding of the problem and the process.
It’s like with Oscars so white. At its core it was never about number of nominated black actors, it was about the whole industry. Who is in charge, who makes the call and why.August 22, 2020 at 8:15 am #1203660422
Just watched ep 11.
To say I’m anxious before the finale (this Monday) would be understatement.
This is an incredibly comprehensive and challenging piece of art on consent. It truly goes on to depict things I have never seen on a show before.
I’m planning to watch this show again very soon. There are so many things to unpack in each episode.August 15, 2020 at 2:15 pm #1203647480
Just watched ep 9 and 10 and honestly, this is truly remarkable show. Especially ep 9 “Social Media Is a Great Way to Connect” was uncompromising but in a way that didn’t feel manipulative. She really knows how to held her characters accountable. But she is dropping those truth bombs in a deeply empathic way. For a show that so easily could choose “us vs them” narrative while discussing various topics, she often challanges that binary thinking in the most unexpected ways.
I mean ep 10, my godness, that was just terrific and heartbreaking.
I think this is going to be my number one show this year.
Sorry She-Ra!July 31, 2020 at 12:26 pm #1203618969
There could ony be one winner in that category. What an icon.July 31, 2020 at 12:24 pm #1203618962
aww, Jared! So happy he won, tho pretty much anyone in that category would be a great choice.July 31, 2020 at 12:20 pm #1203618950
okay, Stath Lets Flats win in Scripted Comedy – expected, but The End of the F***ing World in Drama? Whoa.July 31, 2020 at 11:59 am #1203618872
I can’t watch this unique ceremony, because I don’t live in the UK, but first impressions? Do you guys already see what is and isn’t working and what should the Emmys avoid?June 25, 2020 at 10:02 am #1203551501
I thought I’d share @aen’s compilation of Succession’s appearances in awards related media this past month from the Succession season 2 thread. I mean look at the past week alone :
wow, normally I don’t pay much attention to campaigns (probably that’s why I only now found out that Riley did an interview with freaking Fiona Shaw), but this seems like an impressive list.June 23, 2020 at 12:45 pm #1203548307
With its 0.2 million HBO viewer average I am confident this is going to be this years Years and Years.
This is disappointing, but now in retrospect I appreciate Gentleman Jack performance on HBO a bit more. The whole collab between BBCA and HBO seems strangly muted. Those shows come and go without making any noise.
Anyway, HBO Go in my country is one week behind with the series, but just wanted to say, that I loved the last 10 minutes of episode 2. Her slow realization of what happened was really powerful, but done in a very grounded way.June 13, 2020 at 2:22 pm #1203531482
She was credited on three out of eight scripts, so she had a significant hand in the third season’s writing even if she did not drive it. And she did hire her writing staff, which is the one that was in the tweet.
Oh sorry, I was talking about the lady who posted that KE writing stuff picture- Kayleigh Llewellyn. She joined for s.4.June 13, 2020 at 12:11 pm #1203531355
Even if I love the show, I’m glad this conversation happens.
Right now however, this new writer gets heat for things that she actually didn’t do:
1. she didn’t write s.3
2. she doesn’t do hire on KE
For quality of writing she will be judge next year, for tone deaf tweet she can be judge now, for everything else – the whole industry (and therefore, KE producers) should be questioned all the time.
