Okay, first of all, I respect your opinion if you don't think that Kadee Strickland is deserving of recognition and the like but you don't need to go the extent of calling those that disagree with you "morons", "uneducated", and"el estupido". Contrary to what you think, Kadee Strickland has done a good job in portraying the role of a victim and that has been recognized by many other victims. In fact, RAINN received a multitude of positive response after the episode of Charlotte's rape aired. That just proves how her performance made an impact to a lot of people. "What incredible acting, moron? The bitch can barely cry one freakin' tear and that was because they put visine in her eye."
I don't know if you have actually been watching the episodes regarding the aftermath of her rape but she shows great emotion in all of them. If you saw "Did You Hear What Happened to Charlotte King" then you would've seen her during that pelvic exam and how raw her emotions were. Sweetie, 'millions' of HER fans, where? She ain't got no fans, if she did why are the ratings getting WORSE during her storyline? She can't bloody act.
I also don't know how you can say that she doesn't have any fans because a lot of people admire her as an actress. A lot of women are grateful for her performance because it's what helped them admit to their own rapes and seek help. She may not be an A-Class actress with a huge fan base but there are still people out there, myself included, that think she is great as an actress. Since her work started witbh RAINN, she has continued to advocate for rape and a lot of people are grateful to her for that. She helped a lot of women seek help for their rapes and for that, she will always have fans that are supporting her. Also, ratings have actually not gone down since her storyline. Steve Blackman, an executive producer and writer of the show, announces after each episode that they continue to lead the ranks for their time slot for adults 18-49. It has also been reported that Private Practice has gone up at least 40% in the ratings because of her rape storyline. So I really don't know where you're getting your information about falling ratings because that isn't the case. No they shouldn't get recognized for this dreck and there have been MUCH better rape stories on TV than this ish. They are advocating for women to just sit by and let another woman get raped all because of some southern twit with too much pride. Everyone thinks that this lying wench(she's been lying to everyone about everything the entire series) is such a strong character, when her reaction to this proves otherwise; she's actually the WEAKEST character. The fact that you believe this bitch with a LONG HISTORY of cancelled shows thanks to her, can act, shows your credibility to be completely null and void anyway.
And they do deserve recognition for what they have presented because they did a good job with it and they continue to do just that. There may have been better rape stories on TV but a number of people have given this portrayal such positive response. People have even said that it is "likely the most realistic depiction of rape in media history." It is also unfair for you to call the writers out on how they dealt with Charlotte not reporting the rape because that's a real life scenario. The writers and Kadee Strickland didn't go into this without knowing anything because they did extensive research for this story. Kadee worked alongside victims to really know what it's like and to get real life accounts on survivors of rape so their choice not to have Charlotte report it right away is them showing that many women are hesitant to come forward. Also, it complements Charlotte's character that she wouldn't want to do this. The show is not in anyway advocating that women should just "sit by and let another woman get raped" because the point of them doing this story arc is to get the story out there and encourage people to come forward. The fact that they are slowly dealing with the aftermath of Charlotte's rape shows how realistic of a portrayal it is and Kadee has been doing a good job with that. Charlotte may not have wanted the rape kit or to ID the attacker right away but in the end she did it anyway. As of now the DA may not be charging him because of how Charlotte dealt with it but the storyline of the show portrays what a woman really goes through when something like that happens. And if you think her character is weak because of the way she dealt with this then you are offending thousands of other women who don't find the courage to come forward right away. It's not something easy to do and what they showcased here was how even the strongest of the bunch will find weakness in something like this. It doesn't necessarily make the person weak, it makes her human. I do believe that Kadee Strickland can act despite your idea of my lack of credibility because if she couldn't, then people would not have been affected by her performance enough to pick up their phones and come forward with their rapes after watching her.

"It's really frustrating to see that she isn't nominated when after that portrayal, Kadee absolutely deserves it." - Again, how does she deserve ANYTHING when she CANNOT ACT. You need some glasses there friend, and may I suggest coke bottles at this point. "If so, then why the heck haven't they nominated Kadee Strickland for her incredible acting?(I'm not even a fan of the Private Practice show either!)" - What incredible acting, moron? The bitch can barely cry one freakin' tear and that was because they put visine in her eye. Get a clue, would ya please? You clearly ARE a Public Pussy fan, looking at the bad taste that you have already. "If nominations are basedon the 20009-2010 season, I can look past snobbing Kadee of a nomination. But if she doesn't get one at all from the Golden Globes and Emmys after her fantastic portrayal of a rape victim, something is wrong with the world." - No something is wrong with your taste and your ability to see what real good acting is, because you clearly know nothing about either of those things. "All I have to say is that KaDee Strickland better be nominated at the next Golden Globes or I, and millions of her other fans, will refuse to watch." - Sweetie, 'millions' of HER fans, where? She ain't got no fans, if she did why are the ratings getting WORSE during her storyline? She can't bloody act. "Grey's better get some noms next year as well as KaDee" - Ever noticed how most of you airheads that like KS are uneducated twits? "and Kadee Strickland is NOT FREAKING NOMINATED?? WTF???? this must be a joke" - WHAT'S A JOKE IS ANY IDIOT THINKING THAT SHE DESERVES TO BE. "OMG!!!!!!! I can not believe dat kadee strickland did not get a nom for best actress in a drama. She was brilliant in dat rape scene i mean come on u can't get better than dat. This is sooo wrong on so many levels." - Why would she get nominated for best ACTRESS, even if she could act? She's a SUPPORTING CHARACTER, el estupido. The only thing that's brilliant involving her is her absence. Really? You can't get ANY better than a boney, old-looking, whiny, ratty ditz that can't cry a tear on cue - you're wrong on so many levels if you really think that anything you say is true; it is comical though. "I'm actually really shocked that Kadee didn't get a nomination. Private Practice and her deserve some serious recognition for the last few episodes that they've had! I mean really, have there been better rape portrayals on TV? For the work that they've done, they should really get recognized." - No they shouldn't get recognized for this dreck and there have been MUCH better rape stories on TV than this ish. They are advocating for women to just sit by and let another woman get raped all because of some southern twit with too much pride. Everyone thinks that this lying wench(she's been lying to everyone about everything the entire series) is such a strong character, when her reaction to this proves otherwise; she's actually the WEAKEST character. The fact that you believe this bitch with a LONG HISTORY of cancelled shows thanks to her, can act, shows your credibility to be completely null and void anyway.

Wait! Isn't the "Walking Dead" a new show from this fall? If so, then why the heck haven't they nominated Kadee Strickland for her incredible acting?(I'm not even a fan of the Private Practice show either!) I accidentally stumbled upon the rape episode, and her performance was so real, so touching, that I was really moved(tv shows usually don't get to me). She deserves a nomination far over Jane Lynch or Tina Fey(no offense to Tina).

Most nominations are just frustrating. Sorry, people, but Glee is not good enough for any sort of nomination especially when compared to NCIS. It's like nominating "High School Musical" for an Oscar...it's nuts! I just don't understand how the same shows are nominated for multiple categories over and over again, when there are so many good ones out there! Like, the year 30 Rock won some award a gazillion times, but even though it's funny, it's not amazing and definitely doesn't deserve all of the awards it received. Whoever is in charge of this set up has definitely rigged the system.

If nominations are basedon the 20009-2010 season, I can look past snobbing Kadee of a nomination. But if she doesn't get one at all from the Golden Globes and Emmys after her fantastic portrayal of a rape victim, something is wrong with the world.

All I have to say is that KaDee Strickland better be nominated at the next Golden Globes or I, and millions of her other fans, will refuse to watch.
