^ I'm obsessed with Glow
I'm not expecting the CMA or the ACM to follow suit, but the IBMA have responded to criticism that the same people win too often by publishing all the names which got through to the second ballot. The first round involves write-in votes for any name the member likes - those who get 10 write in choices are the ones who appear on this second round list. There is clearly a very wide range represented, of styles, and of levels of industry involvement - but only those who make the top 5 in this round of voting will get to the final stage, It's at that stage that the more widely known names tend to collect multiple votes.
I'm glad I'm not the only one. I only know one person who watched season one, and it was just okay to her.
Once I finally started it, I couldn't stop. I finished season one in either a day or two. Then went to visit family the weekend the second season came out. When I got home, I watched season two in one day. It was easy for me since I was a teacher bored on summer break. I didn't realize how bored I'd get by taking the summer off from workshops.
Anyway I loved all the actresses on the show, but I'm really hoping Betty Gilpin becomes a superstar. You're probably too busy but if you haven't read her essays or watched any of her solo interviews, they're great. If she doesn't win the Emmy this year, I definitely want her winning it next year for season two's fourth episode. She really nailed everything they threw at her in that episode. Comedy, drama, singing, wrestling, it didn't matter she kicked butt. She was amazing in other episodes, but for the comedy category I think four is her best bet.
Btw I watched an Emmy panel last week and the line from season one about Liberty Belle's three favorite Americans was a Betty Gilpin improv. Alison was saying they follow the script during the normal scenes, but when they are their wrestling characters, they get to do a little more improvisation. I like learning little behind the scenes tidbits like that.

omg hahaha I've made all my friends watch glow and they LOVE it. Betty is f*cking amazing. She's so good. She's the ONLY good part in the American Gods adaptation and she's only in a few scenes, And she was great in Nurse Jackie. Im so happy she found a series lead breakout role. I havent watched her interviews actually which is odd for me when I like someone. I usually watch their interviews, so ill def do that!
