Guess who won’t be watching the emmys? This guy! To omit Mandy Moore is just ridiculous! She was the highlight of the season this year NOT Sterling K. Brown! Don’t get me wrong Sterling is great and deserves the nod, but Moore not only deserves the nod but also the win! I will skip what looks to be a love fest for Game of Thrones and Handmaid’s Tale! As usual the Emmys got it wrong! At least Daytime got most of it right this year!

When the Emmy awards began, there were only three networks, now networks have to compete with streaming services and cable shows, which is unfair. Networks do not have the budgets to compete with streaming shows and cable in terms of production values, the quality of actors, the writing staff– etc. IMHO, Network shows need their own award show — so much talent goes unrecognized, shows that would have had multiple Emmy awards before have none under the current system.

Mary SF…I think you are right about why the three networks, and soaps like GH especially, are at a disadvantage compared to years ago. At least for consistent, quality writing and stories and budgets. Oh, and add that they have to write for five days of the week, and don’t get to take time out for seasonal breaks. So I guess we should count ourselves lucky that we still have the quality that we do have.

J Hartley, sorry they can’t see what the rest of us do. You should have been nominated.

Leaving THIS IS US’ Chrissy Metz off the list is a travesty. I’ve always felt that when a performer can make you watch them even when the scene is meant to spotlight someone else, that’s a great actor. In the family meeting scene with Kevin’s psychiatrist, Kevin and Randall are exchanging angry, hurtful barbs when the camera pivots to Kate. Metz’s look of hurt and shock spoke volumes without a word spoken. It was a stunning moment in a great year for THIS IS US. I am glad that Darren Criss and Judith Light were nominated for the Versace series.… Read more »
