  1. I thought Mary would be a shoe in! I’m disappointed her stellar acting was not rewarded. She is, and always will be, a winner in my book!
    Much love, Mary!

  2. What they left her out?? This is a gross mistake. Her character was great. She was my reason to watch the series..

    Fargo’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead remains one of our most underappreciated actresses
    Mary Elizabeth Winstead has a knack for playing characters who think, endlessly, on their feet. If one of your characters is backed into a corner, unsure of what to do next, toss the role into Winstead’s hands and she’ll make a meal of it. That’s exactly what she did with Fargo’s Nikki Swango, to the degree that the character all but took over the show for the back half of season three. It was great to see some of Winstead’s co-stars — especially Carrie Coon and David Thewlis — pick up nominations, but Winstead deserved to be right there alongside them. When will Hollywood realize that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a national treasure? Not soon enough.
