    I hope the Limited categories don’t become namecheck lists full of recognised film actors converting to TV.

    Same here, but I have a feeling it will be. I suspect Big Little Lies is gonna disappoint, but I don’t see that affecting Witherspoon’s chances, even though it’s doubtful she’ll be worthy of a nom. And really, Cumberbatch should not be nominated for the abysmal fourth season of Sherlock, and Hardy isn’t really deserving at this point for Taboo. I suspect they all get noms though.

    Those (Kidman included for Big Little Lies) plus some of the non-Lange/Sarandon performances in Feud are the ones I’m worried will get in without merit. Of course half of these shows haven’t aired yet. I hope they aren’t on Sherlock/Taboo level. I hope American Crime/Fargo have great seasons.

    So Kidman is getting amazing reviews for Big Little Lies. So is everyone else but Kidman apparently is the heart and soul of the show and is giving her best performance in a while.

    So far I’ve only seen one good review (Variety) and one bad review (THR). I suspect the overall response is going to be mixed.

    Indiewire, TVLine, Variety and THR have reviewed it so far, and only THR gave it a bad review.

    It has a 72 on Metacritic right now. With that type of cast, anything under 75-80 is a disappointment. Haven’t even really gotten to the heavy hitter critics like Sepinwall, Zoller Seitz, VanDerWerff, Poniewozik, etc yet, so we’ll see.

    the other 4  critics gave very good scores, but THR’s was so bad that t lowered it big time. Once other critics weigh in it will level things out and be much higher. I would say at least 75 and I would bet on 80

    You’re worried about the inevitable?

    I love Legion as much as the next guy, but I just can’t see it being a “frontrunner” at this time for many of the major categories. Same with Luke Cage (which I haven’t seen). I just don’t see the Emmys embracing a superhero show right away.

    I have a question for all of you. Where do you think The Young Pope will compete? I see HBO is still calling it a limited series. If it does go into drama, however, I could see it picking up nominations for Jude Law, directing, and (a long-shot) Keaton. The ratings are pretty lame, though, and it seems to have lost a lot of buzz since its American premiere.
