Emmy Voters Can Give Golden Age Love by Moving Christine Baranski to Lead Actress in Drama

House Television Emmy voters can give love to the Golden Age by moving Christine Baranski…

The Emmy ballots are about to roll out, and there are plenty of shows and actors to choose from.

In the drama, the leaders are “Succession” and “Ozark”, of course. There is support for “Squid Game”, but I don’t see it happening. ‘Yellowstone’ is very popular, but it’s not as good as its predecessor, ‘Dallas’. Two strong entries: “Better Call Saul” and “Severance”.

For some reasons, “Billions” the best show on television, is barely listed. Showtime does nothing about that. A real headache. “Billions” would be my third drama of choice after “Succession” and “Ozark”.

But the one I’m most looking forward to seeing get some love is HBO’s “The Gilded Age.” This is my fourth-choice drama. Emmy voters would do well to move Christine Baransky for lead actress, drama for this series. Carrie Coon is fine, but Baranski is spectacular. That would make room for Cynthia Nixon in support, as well as Louisa Jacobson. in lead, Baransky would be my choice to run the race with Zendaya, Laura Linney, Melanie Lynskey and the criminally neglected Mariska Hargitay.

In addition, voters should look Morgan Spector in lead actor, drama. He’s the Jon Hamm of this generation of TV actors. It is a difficult category. But without Paul Giamattithe best actor of any drama, not having Showtime support, Spector fits in pretty well with Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong and Jason Bateman.
