This day in Homeland – July 17, 2012 – the pivotal scene of “Q&A” is filmed “It was chilling. I literally felt Henry Bromell’s hand reach over and grab my arm. We just stood there. I’ve never experienced anything like it… It was one of the most profound days I’ve ever had on a set.” –Lesli Linka Glatter
The 2018 Emmy nominations were announced today. By my quick tabulation, here are the Homeland’s nominations:
Mandy Patinkin for Best Supporting Actor
F Murray Abraham for Outstanding Guest Actor (LOL)
Sound Editing (for “All In”)
So, the series and Claire Danes were once again not nominated. I can’t say I’m surprised, as the Emmy folks seem to have moved on from the series (and Claire’s performance by extension). But damn, Claire was really good this year and so was the show (the only other performances in the Lead Actress series I’ve seen are Elisabeth Moss in The Handmaid’s Tale and Sandra Oh and Sandra Oh is FUCKING AMAZING in Killing Eve and I hope she wins that’s all).
Whenever a fave of mine is not nominated–Claire especially–I think about a few things:
Awards are not and never have been the end-all, be-all of quality. Plenty of amazing stuff is overlooked and even MORE undeserving stuff gets recognized, routinely. It’s spectacularly unwise to invest too much into anything that you have literally zero control over and which, in the grand scheme of the universe, matters so little. In other words, they are all still millionaires and Trump is still fucking president.
On the topic of Claire specifically, I think it’s quite evident that she doesn’t really care about awards and it’s absolutely not the reason she’s doing any of this (which is exactly what someone who’s not nominated would say but in this case it’s really, really true).
AT LEAST WE GOT CLAIRE’S POD TOUR OF AMERICA (that’s a new one!)
This is a wild story about a global racket in which powerful Hollywood execs–all women, including Lesli Linka Glatter–are being impersonated in order to scam people for thousands of dollars.
Linka Glatter first learned that she was being impersonated from friends and colleagues. “I started getting calls from my agents and managers, friends, and friends of friends — they were all hearing from a fake Lesli Linka Glatter,” she says, “And they would want to know: Am I doing this project? What’s the deal? It was horrifying.”
For a long time, Linka Glatter thought she was alone in being faked. She tried to contact the police and the FBI, but neither showed interest. The amount of money involved was too small, they told her. She hired a private investigator, who discovered that the scammers were using burner phones to cover their tracks and GoDaddy accounts for fake email addresses. She contacted corporate security at a major Hollywood studio, but that didn’t help either. The calls kept coming. One day, a well-known political consultant in Washington got in touch.
“The fake Lesli had contacted him to collaborate on a project, but then she started sounding weirder and weirder and the political consultant called my agents to find out if she was real,” says Linka Glatter. The impersonator had also apparently targeted several technical and military advisers who worked with Linka Glatter on shows like Homeland and The Walking Dead. “People believed there was a real job at the end of this,” she says. “There is a whole group of military people that were targeted.”
On July 9th at 10:00 am EST, almost a full year since we posted the first gifset on HYH, the last of EQSE will be posted here on FMRF. As I’ve said many times, it ends for me with 6.11 — I haven’t and will never change my mind about giffing that other non-existent episode.
But now is not the time for sadness, sorrow, anger or even disappointment about the unfulfilled life of our beloved Peter Quinn. It’s the time to celebrate every moment he was on our small screens. Every word he said and every move he made. Every clenched jaw, dimpled smile, quotation-marked furrow, eye crinkle and eyebrow lifted. Every swiped nose, hand through his hair, hands on his hips, arms crossed and perfect lips licked. Every longing stare, angry scowl, frustrated grimace and every emotion possible said with just those beautiful blue eyes. Every “fuck me”, “fuck you”, “motherfucker”, “asshole”, “shit”, “fuck”, “Christ” and “Carrie”. Every gun aimed, bomb built and wall climbed. Every person punched, shot or knocked out. Every hug, kiss, fuck and blowjob. Every smoke, drink, donut and waffle. Every navy blue and white shirt of hotness. Every robe and every towel. Every shirtless and pantless moments. Every hair length— head and facial. Every look of love and compassion, anger and grief. EVERY PETER QUINN SCENE EVER!
Now I’m asking all of you to help us celebrate this ending, this accomplishment. Throughout the week, please send in your favorite gifsets, and we will post as many as possible throughout the day on July 9th. It’s my way of not only celebrating Peter Quinn, but thanking all of you who have and who continue to support this blog, Rupert Friend, Frangi, Laura and myself.
Love to all!
THIS IS AN ENDEAVOR.
Holy shit!!! As a fellow person who gifs, I hope you all understand the effort, attention to detail, and time that went into making all those. And she hasn’t missed a SINGLE. DAMN. DAY in a year.
(To put this project into perspective, I would never in about 400 million years gif every Carrie Mathison scene ever so that just goes to show the level of dedication and love Sydney has for Peter Quinn.)
From all of us at HYH….
P.S. Thank you for including the white shirt alongside the navy shirt of hotness WHERE IT RIGHTFULLY BELONGS.
