Why am I glad the pompous Kevin Spacey didn't win last night ?
I'm not a staunch 'come out of the closet' person - think it's up to an individual, when they feel comfortable. But seeing his smug act at The Emmys, made me think what a phony he is
I can't stand this smarmy bitch. I want to beat him up without fucking him.
Because- and I'm going out on a limb here - you think he's pompous?
R1 believes he was due a bigger tip after that date with Kevin arranged on Craigslist.
Who did he bring with him? Is she pretty?
r3: Hi, Kev!
I'm glad he didn't win because he didn't deserve it. (OTOH the only one who deserved it less than him was Jeff Daniels.) I liked "House of Cards," but acting-wise Spacey simply wasn't in the same league as Bryan Cranston or Jon Hamm.
I'm sure he expressed his displeasure last night when he came home. Let's just say the Spacey home almost certainly has far fewer intact vases, plates, and dishes than it had two nights ago.
I'm sure the close-up of him where he angrily waved the camera away had to do with his fury at not winning.
Kevin was robbed!
A friend of mine referred to him as "the kind of actor that someone's suburban father would think is a good actor, just because he always plays the kind of asshole suburban fathers wish they could be at work."
I was actually glad he didn't win either! I'm a fan tbh he is a good actor and I know if I see anything with him in it his performance will be good if not great.
But it was more to do with the fact that he is a 2 time Oscar winner and predominantly a film star. I mean he got out of TV in the late 80s to get into film to win those oscars and become an A-lister then he left when he couldn't handle the media and ran with his tail between his legs to London theatre. NOW he wants in with the golden age of TV to steal the thunder of all those that struggled to get their creative voices heard and talents seen?
Puhlease. Bryan Cranston (in particular) and Jeff Daniels were probably waiting to get their hands on good material forever. Poor Cranston was stuck on that crappy Malcolm show for ages.
I hate that Spacey can just barge in because he is a 2 time Oscar winner and has the right connections.
Don't even get me started on how they keep going on about how netflix is so innovative. THERES BEEN ONLINE ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING FOR AWHILE NOW HELLO.
Let the TV people, underdogs, struggling artists and OPEN actors have their time to shine.
Spot on, R10.
Kevin' body is a horror - and that thing between his legs, laughable
Glad he lost, he is gross. I've heard way too many stories about him that turn my stomach.
He stole my phone!!!!
House of Cards has largely been considered the Emmys' big loser last night--it won only best director for an episode, and best cinematography.
Will someone explain to us turds why Netflix was even considered for an Emmy? Was this shown on TV?
UK production of House Of Cards was infinitely better.

Because it is 2013.
I resisted watching House of Cards, mostly because I don't like Spacey at all.
I gave in and really like the show, but I still hate him.
He might not have an Emmy or Grammy, but the guy certainly has an EGO.
R21. Excellent, and very funny!

Want I should tell you why I'm glad no one gives a flying fuck what you think?
Is R23 Kevin or his agents or a frau? Everyone in this thread does give a flying fuck otherwise we wouldn't all be agreeing with each other. DERP. Go away.
I must be the only one who thought Daniels was, if not a lock, at least a shoo-in for this. Cranston, Hamm and Spacey were all potential spoilers, obviously, but I'm glad Daniels won. There is no faulting his performance on The Newsroom.
House of Cards was all right but the most impressive thing Spacey did was go down hard on Kate Mara. (I'm sure there was a bucket near by. I mean, another bucket.)
The writing was only mediocre at best, the pointless asides to the camera often working against Spacey convincing us he was an insider as they usual just confirmed the most obvious things. They would've done better to make Spacey's character bi-sexual.
Robin Wright was absolutely exquisite in it. It's a shame she didn't win.
Oh well, back to fucking the understudies!
Hated House of Cards. Like watching paint dry. Or ladies golf.
He's fucking hilarious and provided the only laughs of the evening. And the swipe at the camera wasn't fury Dear, he was just shooing the camera away because they get so close to your face, and it was funny.
It wasn't funny.
I am glad he didn't win but I for sure thought either he or Cranston would get it.
I couldn't get through the Newsroom without wanting to gouge my eyes out but from what I saw and from what I hear Daniels is good.
Poor Jon Hamm. Will he ever win?
R29, is it time for us to start calling you the "gouge my eyes out watching Newsroom" troll? Because it keeps making its appearance. Just checking. Of course you are right about it. I'm wearing an eye patch myself as I type.
R25 's emotional investment in all of this is sad and creepy
Why should I be labelled the troll if its actually the common reaction hence not a trollish thing to say?
But sure you can cause quite frankly I don't mind being that type of troll. A troll that speaks the truth is fine by me.
Kevin Spacey's American accent in House of Cards is atrocious. He has become like Madonna and Gwyneth; they try so hard to lose their US accent and obtain a posh London one, in the end they don't have the ability to sound convincing as either.
If he's such a great actor why can't he convincingly play a straight man?
That should be the first thing brought up in any discussion of La Spacey.

I found the whole thing dull as shit, none of the scandals were interesting and the whole thing consisted of dimly-lit gray rooms. Total piece of shit, if it was a feature film it wouldn't have raised any interest, but because its on television its considered art.

You can only watch House Of Cards on Netflix. That's why.
is this a tongue in cheek article inferring that him and Charlize Theron are both gay?
and whats up with her hair? is she trying to say she should have played Diana and saved that film?
I also saw a podcast on Gold Derby where they went through all the criteria that is required for a winning performance. One was empathy.
I'm sorry but in no way did Spacey make the audience feel empathy towards Frank. Probably just the way its written but with that criteria he would never have won.
The fact that mainstream media will not discuss the reasoning for the World Trade Center 7 collapse blows my mind.
