I realise that I'm responding to a years-old post, but I just saw all of the Emmy Award links reposted, and I've not been here very long.... some joker whose Fosse/Verdon show I probably wouldn't have even cared for?!
It's hard for you that your favourite didn't win (and I agree, Joey King did a very good job), but to suggest another actor wasn't worthy is petty.
You're absolutely right about that-- I was absolutely wrong about it and about everything else (I didn't even realize I was being petty when I wrote all of it; I wish I could delete everything I said). Heck, even Joey King herself actually realized and admitted that she wasn't likely to win at her first nomination going against someone who's been there longer than her.
Of course, I haven't seen all that much current stuff to begin with, so your point about what I said does have merit (albeit it blindsided me; I wasn't expecting to be brought to task [much as I needed to be]).
