What is this mess with the original post??? Is the bar open and I havne’t been informed?
I, amongst many, am actually super critical of gay-themed movies especially because it’s so easy to fall into many pitfalls with them.
That being said, I have never ever ever heard someone say ”that movie was so good because the GAY character was so good” or ”yes, a lesbian character, I’m in”. Moviegoing audiences don’t think like that.
Could it be that people pay attention to the story and then judge the movie in conjunction with the characters before actually saying they liked it or not? I did not like CMBYN because of Elio, but because the storytelling humanizes his experiences. He happened to be gay in the midst of a captivating script.
Besides, free lesson on pop culture 101: Most movie icons for the community are not even gay characters.June 18, 2019 at 1:41 pm #1202943236
This may just be the mother of all unpopular opinions here… I think that some LGBT-related films are loved solely for the fact that they feature LGBT characters and situations and not for the quality of the actual film.
Is that you, aunt Laura?June 18, 2019 at 1:29 pm #1202943206
Dear Emmy voters, if you don’t want to be killed by accident by Thatcher’s army, you will have to vote for Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) as Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
Well she’s getting some good press. I liked she spoke up about her ending. So much lost potential… we needed scenes with Lena and Emilia/Maisie. From a writing point they were totally possible. Maybe Arya terrorizing Cerise when the Red Keep starts to fall to pieces but then Daenerys swoops and both kick her ass while Lena throws wine at them. I don’t know… just anything more than what we got 🙁June 18, 2019 at 1:09 pm #1202943165
I may be just one of the few, but I’ve always thought Buffy ended in a very high note. The last season was uneven and those effects are still so cheesy, but the fact that they ended the cycle of the Lone Slayer (and finally getting the hell outta town) was a very powerful statement. Sarah Michelle was a Queen.
Usually HBO excels at endings (Six Feet Under, Rome, The Leftovers, The Wire), unless the shows involve vampires or dragons…June 18, 2019 at 7:52 am #1202942720
I haven’t seen Killing Eve season 2, but the best surprise from season 1 was getting to know Comer as an actress. Witnessing a psychopath winning me over was a fun experience. What she does with her facial expressions is sooo good.
If the Academy were somewhat creative they’d skip Sandra, who apparently suffers the “I am the biggest name in the cast but not the standout” syndrome.June 17, 2019 at 4:43 pm #1202942194
Oh, you are right.Sometimes I confuse the parodies with season 7 and 8.Can’t wait for them to be released, I don’t know what’s holding them back.
Some D&D guys we’re fired so HBO is working with a new team that does not force 3 “villains” upon the audience in the last 4 episodes of the show. What a crazy Saturday Night Live special that was!!!June 17, 2019 at 4:35 pm #1202942182
I’m actually rooting for Dinklage this year and thought he was the MVP of the season, followed by Williams.
I can see people supporting him, but I just could not take him seriously with that overused brooding expression and two of the dumbest monologues I have seen from any character ever:
-Appealing to Cersei’s maternal instincts (like WTF) knowing very well Cersei blames him for the death of their own mother and she gives no fucks about other people. He was always a terrible advisor to Daenerys
-“Who has a better story than Bran the Broken?” = the shittiest of monologues

Damn, girls! Once the actresses talk begins claws come out lol
At least I’m happy people are not shitting on Clarke as they used to. Can we say a nomination is highly possible? I’d be super happy for her given the shitfest those last three episodes were.
I can’t believe Dinklage will get another Emmy given how incredibly idiotic his character became. Yeah, he cried with Jaime, so…? Some women in the cast are more deserving than him.June 14, 2019 at 8:52 pm #1202938500
OT, but did you guys know what happened to Stegeo?June 12, 2019 at 6:56 am #1202934406
Big Love not ever getting Emmy nominations for any of the four main actors (in five seasons!!!) is an unforgivable insult.June 10, 2019 at 2:15 pm #1202931757
Thoughts on the likely episode submissions for the actors? I’m debating whether 8×04 or 8×06 would make the better pick for Clarke. 8×06 has the bigger, flashier “ACTING” moment but it is one of only two scenes in the entire episode, with the other scene suffering from pitiful chemistry with Harrington. 8×04 on the other hand has shaky writing but demonstrates tremendous range from Clarke. She completely encompasses Dany’s loneliness, betrayal, fury and vengefulness. IMO it’s the most pivotal for setting up the heel turn in 8×05 and it’s purely carried by Clarke’s acting (much like the actual heel turn itself).
Even though I hate 8×04 (and I will always think of it as a bottom two episode for the series), that episode is all about Emilia with all the emotions you mentioned, so she should go with that one (the funeral scene is memorable). ”The Iron Throne” is just the closure for the character; the speech was strong, but that last scene is Emilia trying to do her best with Kit who just seemed to be there for the paycheck.June 10, 2019 at 1:32 pm #1202931638
Sophie Turner is still a bigger star, so I expect her to get in (even though her movie is a big flop right now). Could Gwendoline actually get in in addition to Lana, Maisie and Sophie?
Yeah, that ill-conceived X-men atrocity may not help, but then again most of the cast usually has flops lol… however, for which episode do you think she gets the nom? Legit curiosity here
