I've been watching Moon Knight. Really like it so far. Actually really loved the third episode, actually. Felt like the narrative needed a little shake-up, which it delivered. Curious to see where it goes from here.
Thoughts on the finale?
Emmy nominations out today: Emmys 2022: Complete Nominations List
Mostly pretty standard Emmys M.O.
Some highlights (for me):
-Severance doing pretty well (14 nominations! Adam Scott for Lead Actor in a Drama!)
-Only Murders in the Building doing well (probably my current favorite comedy on TV)
-Strong nods for Barry
-Yay for Hacks
-Yellowjackets getting recognized, especially Ricci for supporting
-The voters finally realizing that maybe just nominating like every cast member of SNL in the comedy acting categories might not be the best use of limited spots
-You are not missed, Yellowstone
-Where the hell is Selena Gomez for OMITB? She's arguably the heart and soul of that show and emotionally anchors S1.
-Ditto for Britt Lower in Severance. Of all the acting performances to ignore...
-...and same applies to Sarah Goldberg for Barry S3. Really dropping the ball on Supporting Actress nods.
-No love for Our Flag Means Death
-Speaking of snubs...Gil Birmingham for Under the Banner of Heaven was robbed
-What the hell is Reese Witherspoon doing there? The last season of The Morning Show was a joke (and not the funny kind)
-Maybe when I tried watching Euphoria I did it wrong? Because it came across as fairly hollow overly stylized soapy teen horseshit, not awards season fodder
I have every sympathy with your view. Thing is, I stopped watching broadcast TV over 20 years ago and started buying (then) DVD boxsets. I'm not interested in sports, so I haven't watched a programme got out 'live' in all that time. When people mention certain commercials currently on TV, I look at them blankly. When TV presenters are mentioned, I have no idea who they are talking about. I simply don't care about the broadcast media industry (and I go out of my way to avoid television jobs!)I could not disagree more. I absolutely hate the trend in streaming to unceremoniously drop an entire season of a TV show at once.
Given Bobby's daughter's problems and Bobby's own history as a murderer, it could lead to an interesting storyline for Sheriff Briggs...Same. Also it might be a little out of character for the solemn and underspoken Hawk to actually run for the public office of Sheriff. That seems more like something small town sports star Bobby Briggs would do.
