Several fans took to Twitter to begin an awards campaign for Winslet, who plays the titular Mare in the show, directed by Craig Zobel. "I know everyone is saying 'all the awards to Kate Winslet,' but holy s**t Jean Smart and Julianne Nicholson and Evan Peters were all mind-bogglingly good. #MareOfEasttown," one fan wrote.

Actor-filmmaker Zach Braff called the show 'a beautiful and heartbreaking piece of art' and thanked 'everyone involved'. Schitt's Creek co-creator Dan Levy tweeted, "Sending love and strength to everyone watching Mare tonight."

"The acting in #MareOfEasttown, especially in the finale, was stunning & deeply emotional. Kate Winslet & Julianne Nicholson knocked the wind out of me. Jean Smart was absolutely phenomenal as well. So well done," a fan wrote.
