The Gilded Age S1-2

From Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes, The Gilded Age was up for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series at the 2024 Screen Actors Guild Awards, thanks to the likes of Emmy winners Audra McDonald, Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, and Nathan Lane, not to mention Emmy nominee Carrie Coon, Critics Choice nominee Morgan Spector, and People’s Choice nominee Robert Sean Leonard, who joins the cast this season.

Season 2 of HBO’s Emmy-winning drama series The Gilded Age kicks off on Easter morning, 1883, with Bertha Russell’s determination to challenge the old system and gain a foothold in society undiminished by the rejection of her bid for a box at the Academy of Music. While George Russell takes on his own battle with a growing union at his steel plant, Marian continues secretly teaching at a girls’ school, and Ada begins an unexpected new courtship. Of course, Agnes approves of none of it.

The opulent period drama has an 8/10 score on IMDb and a 93% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes for Season 2. In addition to myriad nominations for its production design, costume, make-up and hairstyling, the period drama was up for The Hollywood Critics Association award for Best Cable Series, Drama and the 2024 Queerty Award for best TV Drama.
