There’s no real shock here: Snowfall just happens to be that gritty crime drama with amazing acting and zero AWARDS SZN love. After its fourth season, which featured dynamic performances from series lead Damson Idris as well as cast members like Gail Bean, De’Aundre Bonds, and Melvin Gregg (as well as awesome direction from visionaries like Karena Evans), fans are more than used to the awards organizations sleeping on this kind of vital story—one that’s put the United States government’s involvement in the crack cocaine epidemic that swept the nation back in the 1980s. The show continues to fire on all cylinders, and just like The Wire, folks will likely wake up when it’s too late. Just means that we’re a good 10 years before we get some dope oral histories about classic Snowfall moments. Until then, get hype for Season 5. —khal
