Like most Hollywood award shows the Emmys has the tendency to play out more like a line at your local deli rather than an actual night of recognizing the best and brightest. This first come first serve fuckshit is exactly what’s spelled Bob Odenkirk’s doom at the hands of those less deserving since Better Call Saul first premiered back in 2015. Now I know what you’re thinking – “Don’t multiple nominations put him towards the front of said line?” Absolutely, but that’s not why 2019 should be his year. The character of Jimmy McGill has continued to evolve at the hands of one of the greatest writers in the game, Vince Gilligan, and Odenkirk’s performances have always kept pace. This past season, Odenkirk brought something extra though. With the full transformation of McGill into the long-awaited Saul Goodman, every episode was blessed and made better by him raising the bar on a character we already knew and loved. I mean, that breakdown in the parking lot of HHM should be enough to cinch a gold angel… But if it’s not, tally up the fuckshit and give the man his damn W already.
The one thing more powerful than the people who vote for the Emmys is the people who watch them, Aka the fans of the shows and performers up for a statue. Few shows have a bigger fanbase than This is Us, and season three irrefutably belonged to Sterling K. Brown and his ever-evolving performance of Randall Pearson. Plagued by mental health issues, work drama, and a new splash of trouble in his once impossibly perfect marriage, Brown runs the gamut of emotions week to week without missing a step. Even when the material dangles on the edge of cheesy, as all family-sitcoms have the tendency to do, Brown’s ability to find the genuine counterbalance is often enough to bring anyone watching to tears. That’s called empathy. That’s called connection. That’s called viewership. And as award shows continue to struggle to find an audience in the coming years of cut cable cords, you can expect popularity’s vote to carry more weight. Just be thankful this year the popular vote happens to be for someone deserving.
