    Similarly to WGA, despite winning an award last year This is Us was completely snubbed. However, it made ensemble at SAG, which it wasn’t nominated for last year. I’m unsure if it will continue to be ignored by other major guilds. At the Emmys we saw that mostly the actors supported the show, so maybe This is Us will only have support in the future from the acting branch. Is that enough to maintain its series nomination?

    I think they are safe for one more year

    Disappointed that they expanded comedy from three to eight nominees.  I was looking forward to finding out what was truly at the top.  For example, the nominees last year were Silicon Valley and double Veep.  At least they reduced the drama nominees from ten to eight to compensate some.  And an eight/eight split does make more sense than ten/three.

    It is hard to articulate because Silicon Valley was not in it anyway, but they were always at the top and that is just not going to be the case this Emmy cycle.  Is Veep even ahead of Curb Your EnthusiasmVeep going from 2/3 comedy slots to 1/4 noncommercial comedy slots is not a good trajectory.

    I had initially thought that this would finally be the year for Curb Your Enthusiasm, then the season came out and the critics turned on it and the ratings were down, but it is doing as well as it possibly could have with the industry, so maybe it will win after all.

    Will go with GLOW for PGA though.  The vote-splitting between Curb Your Enthusiasm, Veep and Silicon Valley in the field of five is going to be too much, plus the last three winners have been new dramedies and the PGA has a history of moving on before the Emmys in their winners.  The strange part is that Veep has actually never won PGA, but oh well.

    Will & Grace was nominated over Better ThingsThe Good Place, Modern Family and a second black-ish, but so was Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.  Still, good for them for representing the first ACE multi-camera nomination since themselves thirteen years ago for their sixth season finale.

    This is Us dropped after winning and Mr. Robot is out too.  Cutting the fifth noncommercial slot might have cost The Crown from repeating a nomination.  No Master of None either.

    As expected, The Handmaid’s Tale is in, demonstrating that its Emmy snub was just a result of timing (that we paid dearly for with statistics and resulting predictions).  Big Little Lies is in drama, but only one of its six editors is credited.  Not sure what is going on there.

    Unless Atlanta dominates in nominations and has a killer season 2, I’m guessing we will be looking at GLOW vs Curb at the Emmys for series. I think it is worth noting that GLOW could break through for a first season at SAG when Atlanta couldn’t.

    Hopefully PGA and DGA will throw us some curveballs with nominations and wins.

    I don’t think Curb Your Enthusiasm will win in 2018. Based on what I ‘ve seen it also doesn’t deserve at all. Seriously, no way it will win when we have shows like second season of Master of None, GLOW, Better Things. TV landscape has changed so much.

    I too doubt the Emmys bestow anything upon Curb in the way of wins. It’ll garner nominations but keep in mind, it’s merely scored two victories (one in Directing in ’03 and an Editing win in ’12) over the course of its entire run.

    On the other hand, things are looking up for GLOW. I might predict it for series depending on SAGs and Globes.

    I thought they’ll be a few bones thrown at “Mrs Maisel” Unless it premiered after voting have ended?

    “This is Us” is seemingly dead.

    I assume comedy since that is where Netflix placed it for WGA. Critics’ Choice placed it in limited themselves.

    Regardless of what the critics or Globes said, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel had an uphill battle, being an Amazon November release.  Then again, the ADG just nominated Future Man,  Hulu November release that I think most people even on this forum have never heard of.

    Would have been pretty pathetic if Will & Grace could not get a multi-camera nomination over 9JKL. Is there rejoicing because the hope is that Will & Grace racks up nominations in the Creative Arts categories that have allowed for CBS to begin 2 Broke Girls press releases with “Nine-Time Emmy Award-Nominated Hit Comedy”?

    Happy to see American Gods, Mindhunter and A Series of Unfortunate Events on the board with well-deserved production design recognition. GLOW has the edge over Curb Your Enthusiasm here and Silicon Valley hangs on.

    There are a number of inconsistencies with the Emmys here. Mozart in the Jungle and Transparent were dropped for Master of None, which also bested Grace and Frankie, which was nominated over it at the Emmys. Did Master of None drop too late for that branch at the Emmys?

    The Young Pope was nominated over all of American Horror Story, Big Little Lies and Fargo at the Emmys, but I suppose that it has been unable to maintain its buzz almost a year later. Twin Peaks is a drama, but Big Little Lies is limited. Thought that Feud would have shown up in the commercial category.
