What's A TV Acting Performance That's So Good, But Not Enough People Talk About It?

Now is the time to talk about how Hailee Steinfeld in Dickinson was robbed of an Emmy nomination.

There are a ton of outstanding TV performances out there and a lot of times those actors get a lot of praise, and even awards, for them.

However, sometimes there's a TV acting performance that's so outstanding, but criminally underrated. Like, you can't believe more people don't talk about or haven't discovered yet.

character saying, i'm gonna forget that part of me, dad. I want you to know that i'll be happy. i'll find love. great love with a man who reminds me so much of you it's scary.

Maybe you're like me and you could give a very lengthy presentation about why Melanie Scrofano in Wynonna Earp gave one of the most heart-wrenching and amazing TV performances and yet it's still underrated.

man says, you are without a doubt the best Earp that i have ever had the privilege of calling a friend, and a crying woman saying, doc, i'm sorry for all the ways i hurt you

Perhaps you think teen TV in general deserves more love because there are some phenomenal performances from actors on those shows. For example, how are we all not collectively bowing down to Brianne Howey and Antonia Gentry for this moment in Ginny & Georgia Season 2?

Georgia telling her daughter, i'm so sorry that i miss this. i'm just so sorry, peach. for everything. give it me, okay. you give all that pain to me i can handle it

Maybe you think the Emmy Awards should've recognized Hailee Steinfeld for her portrayal of Emily Dickinson on Dickinson because it was some of the best acting you've ever seen.

Emily saying, you are nothing but a scared sheepy ou have no power to change anything because you have no imagination and for that reason, no one will ever know or care who you were. i made a mistake

Heck, perhaps you just re-watched That '70s Show and, damn, Topher Grace was so funny and we just don't talk about it nearly enough.
