    Succession wins for writing! As it should! Next year should get some acting recognition for season 2.

  • I think the one I'm most upset about is Miguel Sapochnik not winning best director for a drama series for directing The Long Night. But I'm glad it was Jason Bateman that won it otherwise. Julia Garner definitely deserved that but I really was rooting for Gwendoline Christy for the supporting actress win.

    How so?  I understand that the writing was particularly bad this season, but every other part of the show was close to a masterpiece in my opinion.

    Other than the assassination how was the play Mrs  Lincoln? 

    Writing is part of the show, so it was nowhere near the best show.

    Directors and actors should have been recognized for what they did to polish those turds of a script. Best show? No way.

    The Long Night was a muddy, incoherent mess of an episode. Given the amount of disappointment backlash from it I’m surprised it was nominated at all. 

    The most shameful nomination of all is those two dipshits nominating themselves for writing and not Bryan Cogman, who wrote the only good episode of the season.

    This is how your comment sounds to my ears: "Why not Best Car? I understand the engine wouldn't start, but the paint job was close to a masterpiece."

    If you are talking about the "hard to see" complaint regarding the episode, I had little to no issues with that.  Remember that award is for "directing" and not editing, all of the visual issues people had would have been mostly with the editing side of it.  I thought the episode was extremely well directed and I think someone else hit the nail on the head when they said Game of Thrones nominated so many things that they cancelled themselves out.

    I agree that Bryan Cogman should have been nominated for episode 2 as that was an extremely well done episode. In the end if it wasn't Sapotchnik winning I'm happy it was Bateman.  He's a fantastic actor and I had no idea he even directed any of Ozark.

    I’ll give you that me calling it muddy is probably more of a complaint with the effects and editing departments, but the incoherence is all on Sapochnik. On top of the terrible choice to make this such a visually shitty looking episode, I also think it’s just an incredibly poorly directed episode. 

    The Arya in the house of horrors sequence is a great bit of tension, but everything else is just complete nonsense.

    I do think they went a little too much on the close up shots during The Long Night whereas had they pulled the camera back a bit and showed more of the big picture it would have played a lot better than it did.  I think they were going for trying to make the viewer feel like they were there and apart of the action and in doing so caused more confusion and unintelligible scenes.  Part of that is also do to using more of a shaky cam type shot versus a stationary and watching the action unfold.  It did have it's issues but to orchestrate that much chaos and to put me on the edge of my seat for an entire 82 minutes is a feat of it's own.  I don't know how they do awards for musical scores for specific episodes but that episode should have won if something existed.  That musical score during the last quarter of the episode or so was so damn amazing.

    Word.  That's one of the best episodes of the whole show IMO.  
  • Thoughts: I’m kind of inspired to actually finish Ozark now, I’m still not watching fleabag because that’s a dumbass name for a show and I still don’t have a clue what it’s supposed to be about, and the emmy’s are meaningless trash, specifically this time for failing to acknowledge the Deadwood movie.

    I am still just amazed we even got that Deadwood movie.

  • It is a treasure.  And I know I'm being unfairly critical of Fleabag, which I'm sure is great.  I suppose it's a failure of marketing that I'm decrying.

    I was turned off by the name also. But then I just jumped in and forgot about it.

    I'm not one to typically watch comedy TV shows BUT I think I really need to give Fleabag a chance.

    And I'm especially not one for British comedy TV shows, but after Peanut Butter Jelly swept up all that hardware I'm more inclined to give it a shot.
