    Congratulations to Supergirl for getting nominated in the Outstanding Drama category. I’ve been reading that the Alex coming out story line has helped a lot of people.

      I’m an adult lesbian way past my own coming out (or should I say self acceptance, since coming out is a never ending process with everyone you meet) but Alex’s storyline resonates SO MUCH with me (and my better half).
      The accuracy and subtleties of Chyler Lee’s acting, that lots of people are probably unfortunately missing had us absolutely stunned. It’s in the smallests things, the details as much as her great delivery overall. Like the way she delivered that big sigh coupled with so many micro expressions when Eliza hugged her. I always loved her acting but I had no idea she could deliver that much. Absolutely outstanding.
      Props to Floriana Lima as well because she’s awesome in her own right. Loooove Sanvers and the way they decided on a “F the slow burn trope” approach. They’re not in high school and it’s refreshing to see it that way for once.

    While I’m always happy to see a Daytime Drama on any list… I miss at least one other on there…
