  1. i was going to say ‘great! i’ve always liked Alex Borstein since she was on Freaks & Geeks’….till i realized it was a completely different actress lol, i swear her & Linda Cardellini could be sisters!

  2. So happy for all the wins for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel. It’s a truly wonderful show. Any Sherman-Palladino was always overlooked for her exceptional work on Gilmore Girls, but it seems that now she’s on a prestigious streaming service, she’s finally getting her dues, and good for her!

  3. Just heard Hannah Gadsby’s bit…and didn’t get it. I like her, but she must have written her routine for American humour.

    Lucky that guy didn’t tell anyone he was proposing. The directors would never have allowed a traditional wedding proposal if they had known in advance.
