Wonder why Elizabeth Moss as June in the Handmaids Tale was left out as leading actress. Especially since almost every other category has an actor from this incredible series as one of its nominees.

I know, Rose. It’s similar to a movie winning Best Picture (like “Driving Miss Daisy”) without the Director getting even a nomination. I also can’t believe the excellent Finn Wittrock wasn’t nominated for “Ratched”. The guy is a great actor and even turns a plain white T-shirt into an aphrodisiac.

Wow, Sterling K. Brown is acknowledged again for staring his way through the season, while the wonderful Justin Hartley and Chrissy Metz are overlooked. At least the magnificent Gillian Anderson is up for THE CROWN and the spellbinding THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT is getting recognized. Josh O’Connor should win for not only a series of great performances but for doing the impossible — making Prince Charles sexy.
