Absolutely loved this week’s episode and I agree with ya’ll, Sean Hayes has another submission episode in the tank. He really should win this year hands down! … The ensemble, of course, was wonderful as well. And Vanessa Bayer was really funny too… Great episode.March 16, 2018 at 5:33 pm #1202514657
I actually can’t believe the glow up from Debra Messing in the second half of this season. She looked like she was just going through the motions in the first handful of episodes, and now she’s on absolute fire. Would be a very worthy Emmy nominee.March 16, 2018 at 6:12 pm #1202514662
Will and Jack’s storyline was amazing. Hayes needs to win, badly. Either him or Burgess. I didn’t love Karen and Graces storyline but Messing was indeed fantastic.March 16, 2018 at 9:23 pm #1202514690
I echo the sentiments of everyone – Hayes and Messing are this season’s MVPs and are certainly Emmy-worthy. This episode had so much heart and deftly dealt with an integral facet of the series, Will and Jack’s lasting, platonic relationship.
If this season finishes on a strong note, it will rank as my 4th favourite season of the show.

I am not always the bearer of bad news. This is in the new Emmy rule book under Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series:
Entries in Category 26 will be recognized in two genres: multi-camera and single-camera. The number of nominees will be proportional to the number of submissions in each genre, with at least one nomination for each.
This means that going forward, one of the six comedy directing nominees each year will be multi-camera.March 17, 2018 at 4:05 am #1202514747
I think Mark Cendrowski from Big Bang Theory will be stiff competition for the multi-camera. They’ve loved that show in Technical Direction and other multi-camera categories. But Burrows does need an Emmy for his work with W&G.March 17, 2018 at 7:45 am #1202514850
Will & Grace deserves it of course but I’d love to see an isoired surprise in The Carmichael Show or One Day at a Time.March 17, 2018 at 9:24 am #1202514877
wow has there really been just one usually-multi-cam show nominated in the last 12 years (subway wars, himym)?
tho if they’re doing this they should do the same for cinematography and editing instead of having lineups like:
WINNER The Ranch
Donald A. Morgan For episode “Easy Come, Easy Go”
2 Broke Girls
Chris La Fountaine For episode “And The Planes, Fingers And Automobiles”
Joseph W. Calloway For episode “The Legend Of Bad, Bad Cleo Brown”
Gary Baum For episode “Crime Time”
WINNER The Big Bang Theory
Peter Chakos For episode “The Holiday Summation”
2 Broke Girls
Chris Poulos For episode “And The Planes, Fingers And Automobiles”
Last Man Standing
Kris Trexler For episode “Trick Or Treat”
Joe Bella For episode “Bad Hand And British Royalty”
One Day at a Time
Patricia Barnett For episode “A Snowman’s Tale”March 17, 2018 at 9:25 am #1202514878
My ranking is: 2,3,1,9,4,8,5,6,7
6 and 7 were the only bad seasons. Season 8 was fantastic minus the finale.March 17, 2018 at 2:36 pm #1202514950
Mark Cendrowski from Big Bang Theory will be stiff competition for the multi-camera. They’ve loved that show in Technical Direction and other multi-camera categories.
Plus he has received two DGA nominations for the show (out of three for the show), so he has been close to an Emmy nomination anyway. James Burrows will steamroll him this year though, with how dominant Will & Grace was out of multi-camera sitcoms in the guild awards.March 17, 2018 at 9:46 pm #1202515011
Renewed for season 11!!!! Haha haters!March 17, 2018 at 10:03 pm #1202515017
Colour me surprised.March 17, 2018 at 10:54 pm #1202515028
It is NBC’s highest-rated sitcom, but its lead is becoming negligible. I would have thought that they would want to see it stabilize before extending their commitment even further. Will & Grace is the only scripted series on the commercial broadcast networks that has been picked up for 2019–2020. The Good Wife never got such a distinction just for being CBS’s designated drama awards player.
