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.

The small group of guests, led by a fearless female Army vet (Ilonzeh), will do everything they can to stay alive.

According to Deadline: Helgenberger will play Sen. Charlotte Pierce. As a senior Democratic senator from New York, Charlotte is used to calling the shots. She’s happy to see her son, Jack (played by Matt Long), settle down with his bride, Grace (Jasmine Mathew), but there are darker forces at play she has yet to fully understand. Charlotte will soon have to choose between her family and the political career for which she’s worked so hard.  Bonilla will play Rafi Salinas. Rafi claims to be a fisherman on the run with his friends from a gang of cartel members, but he’s hiding a dark secret that will put everyone at the resort in danger.
