    I still have a bad feeling we could see a major upset with TIU defying the stats and winning series. I wouldn’t predict it, but honestly I wouldn’t be surprised.

    As bad as that would be that’s something I could live with and understand, soft people (women and beta males) like that kind of things, if that’s the consensus winner, it is OK unlike House of Cards and The Handmaid’s Tale.

    Wow. Seriously?

    Also, sorry to all who find my “overconfidence” irritating. It’s honestly how I keep myself from going crazy with all sorts of last-minute changes. You’ve got to have real confidence for this sort of thing. Its the first requirement for the job.

    Not an actual job, obviously. Although I am a freelance writer for Goldderby. Its just a saying.

    I finally saw RuPaul’s Drag Race for the first time last night (forgive me) and I suddenly questioned its win, which I have taken for granted since it over-performed with eight nominations. I started looking at what the case was for The Voice and get this: The Voice has ten nominations this year, four more than it had last year. I had no idea!

    It won nothing at Creative Arts last weekend, but the most that it has ever won at Creative Arts is lighting. It is baffling that lighting went to Dancing with the Stars the year that it was dropped from series and The Voice did win the award the last two years in both forms of the popular vote, but I do not really want to base my prediction on the outcome of the lighting category.

    Another reason to doubt The Voice is that it is snubbed in editing, but it turns out that the editors have never been fans of it. The Voice has won series three times, but has only been nominated for editing one of those three years, which was last year when it only submitted one episode. They entered two this year. Regardless of why it was snubbed in editing, it obviously added nominations in five other categories this year to compensate.

    I am also less swayed by Drag Race‘s three wins. Of course it won editing because that editing is insane. Costumes is also unsurprising and RuPaul himself is the only host with any kind of fan base.

    More significantly, Drag Race failed to beat The Voice in the three categories in which they went head-to-head. Emmy voters subverted the pair for Born This Way, Hairspray Live! and Saturday Night Live.

    I switched over to The Voice, but have since switched back to RuPaul because of the Trump factor, for which Mark Burnett is somewhat responsible in the first place. My point is that I suddenly feel that this is a very close race. Maybe one wins this year and the other the next.

    The Emmys subverted Atlanta and RuPaul’s Drag Race. Progressive, but not quite as much as I suspected for most of the season.
