What exactly what the point of saying this: "When Briones failed to get nominated for his various performances on stage and TV, it was because other actors received more votes." ?

Wow, thanks for the lesson in how voting works.

I am not confused about how he didn't get nominated on a logistical level. Did you see his performance? I'm confused on an artistic and cultural level. I'm *bothered* that he didn't get nominated for being brilliant in a staring role that won another actor not only a nomination but a win, while someone like David Hyde Pierce who was wonderful (but, if you ask me, debatably miscast) in a role that had not garnered a Tony nom (let alone win) for the original actor, is definitively not a lead role was nominated as a Lead - in a slot that I am very confident would have been taken by Briones had it not been taken by Pierce. Aka if Pierce had been ruled eligible for Featured, as he fairly should have been, Briones would have been nominated.

And I understand too, logistically, why he wasn't nominated for Versace, but if you really think that's the only thing going on, that fame and name recognition and also powerful teams of representatives and publicists don't heavily sway who ends up nominated, you're very naive.
