    I don't understand why Hannah Waddingham is scoring nominations for Ted Lasso. I thought Juno Temple was way better.

    It would be helpful (at least to me) if the characters the actors portrayed were identified in these stories.

    I watch the shows and know the character but usually not the actor.  In fact, I seldom pay attention to who's acting the part -- unless it is an actor with a long history of portraying great characters (like Blanchet or Hanks).
