    Apparently Goldderby has a lot of Emmy voters lurking here who get to vote.

    My plea to all you Emmy voters, LET US HELP YOU.

    Under this new system of voting it is IMPOSSIBLE for you to see all the nominated performances.  This has led to you making some INSANELY bad choices.  You have given 2 Emmys to Margo Martindale in the last 2 years for a combined 4 minutes of sipping coffee.  Again I plea, LET US HELP YOU.

    I have watched every episode of all 7 Nominees for Comedy and Drama.  I have watched the submitted episodes for nominees not in a Series nominee.  I know first hand what the majority of these nominees did over the course of an entire season.  And I know who has episodes that either do or DO NOT warrant wins.

    Here is how I would vote based on most deserving, who I think is an acceptable alternative, and who is the dreaded category Official Margo Martindale TRUST ME DO NOT PICK THIS PERSON category.  I am doing this to HELP!  Others chime in to help these overwhelmed voters!  We don’t want undeserving winners and there are some lurking this year!

    I am sticking to only the acting categories as that is where things can go HORRIBLY wrong.  Let’s also not forget they gave it to Ben Mendelsohn last year for a nothing role in Season 2 of Bloodline.

    Drama Actress

    Who is most deserving- Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale

    Acceptable Alternatives-  None.  All the women are solid but Moss runs the gauntlet over 10 episodes.  Evan Rachel Wood was also very good in her episode.

    Drama Actor

    Who is most deserving- Sterling K. Brown, This is Us

    Acceptable Alternatives- Toughest category for me to choose because Bob Odenkirk, Milo Ventimiglia, and Matthew Rhys are also very deserving.  I was most surprised by Milo and was tempted to put him.

    Drama Supporting Actress- Thandie Newton, Westworld

    Acceptable alternatives- Chrissy Metz and Ann Dowd

    Drama Supporting Actor- John Lithgow, The Crown

    Acceptable alternatives- Jeffrey Wright and Ron Cephas Jones may have won in any other year if not for Lithgow’s greatness.

    OFFICIAL MARGO MARTINDALE TRUST ME DO NOT PICK THIS PERSON- Mandy Patinkin

    Drama Guest Actress (IMPORTANT)- Ann Dowd, The Leftovers

    The ONLY Acceptable alternative- Alexis Bledel.  Dowd should win this in a walk.  Not only was she great in her episode, she was a standout in the only possible other deserving tape in this category Bledel.

    OFFICIAL MARGO MARTINDALE TRUST ME DO NOT PICK THIS PERSON- Laverne Cox, Allison Wright, and Shannon Purser  They did next to nothing in their episodes.

    Drama Guest Actor- Gerald McRaney, This is Us

    Acceptable alternatives- BD Wong and Brian Tyree Henry.

    OFFICIAL MARGO MARTINDALE TRUST ME DO NOT PICK THIS PERSON- the rest of the guys in this category!

     

    Lead Actor Comedy- Aziz Ansari, Master of None

    Acceptable alternatives- Donald Glover and Jeffrey Tambor

    Lead Actress Comedy- Sadly based on the series and episodes I watched I have a hard time choosing…I would choose either Ellie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt or Pamela Adlon, Better Things.

    Acceptable alternatives- Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Tracee Ellis Ross.

    Supporting Actor Comedy- Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    Acceptable alternatives- None.

    Supporting Actress Comedy- Judith Light, Transparent

    Acceptable alternatives- Kate McKinnon

    OFFICIAL MARGO MARTINDALE TRUST ME DO NOT PICK THIS PERSON- Anna Chulmsky and Leslie Jones

    Guest Actor Comedy-  Matthew Rhys, Girls

    Acceptable Alternatives- Hugh Laurie and Tom Hanks

    Guest Actress Comedy- Melissa McCarthy, Saturday Night Live

    Acceptable alternatives- Angela Bassett, Carrie Fisher, and Becky Ann Baker

    OFFICIAL MARGO MARTINDALE TRUST ME DO NOT PICK THIS PERSON- Wanda Sykes and Kristin Wiig

    Mini Series-

     

    Actress Miniseries-  Jessica Lange, Feud: Bette or Joan OR Nicole Kidman, Big Little Lies

    Acceptable alternatives- Susan Sarandon or Felicity Huffman

    Actor Miniseries- Riz Ahmed, The Night Of

    Acceptable alternatives- Ewan McGregor.

    Supporting Actress Miniseries- Hardest one to choose but either Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, or Jackie Hoffman would be my pick.

    Acceptable alternatives- Honestly any of them would deserve it, don’t think one towered over the other. Judy Davis and Regina King have won multiple Emmys so I wouldn’t choose them this time.

    Supporting Actor Miniseries- Bill Camp, The Night Of

    Acceptable alternatives- Alfred Molina and Alexander Skarsgard.

    While I don’t agree with everything you said, I would be pleased overall if these were the winners.

    I will bring up my own later… probably in my own thread so no one gets confused with these fake news “Correct” winners. Lange?! Ansari for ACTING?! Even Lithgow over Wright and Cephas Jones?! GTFO 😛

    Oh, and in what world was Light’s purely dramatic work more culturally significant and relevant than McKinnon’s actual comedic work? The category IS Comedy Supporting Actress, after all. 😉

    Perfect calls with McCarthy, Burgess, Brown, Moss, and The Handmaid’s Tale for Drama Series though. You’ve got to give credit where credit is due. 😐

    If Wong won, it would be 100% deserved.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Give Bob Odenkirk the win! He’s easily the best performance in the category, and, in my opinion, of any nominee this year.

    Hey now I did say Wright and Cephas Jones may have won in any other year and McKinnon was my alternative choice so that of course means I think all are worthy winners who would make me happy.  I thought Light gave one of the best performances I watched in the episodes which is why I ranked her as my pick.

    And I know Lange causes convulsions both positive and negative around here.  I’d prefer Kidman to win as she’s never won but I can’t deny Lange was great as well.

    I picked Aziz because I felt Master of None was by far the best of the comedies I watched and he is the driving force behind it.

    Thanks for the others for reminding me about BD Wong. You helped right a Wong.

    While Transparent is totally a drama, Light’s submission was overall comedic. If you are an Emmy voter and don’t have time to watch the full episodes, at least watch the first few minutes of McKinnon’s submission and the last few minutes of Light’s submission. They both sing songs and it’s the highlight of both of their episodes. Then, make the decision for yourself.

    I would LOVE if these were the winners. I bet they are better than the real winners the voters will choose lol. I sincerely do hope there are Emmy voters lurking. You either picked who I thought was the best or had them in your acceptable alternatives. I also liked how you gave the double nominees a win in the category they deserve ie. Riz in TV Actor, Rhys in Guest Actor, Dowd in Guest Actress. Also most of the main shows competing each take home an award this way.

    And most important you nailed some of the potential STINKERS like Margo Martindale, especially ironically in Guest Actress Drama. I watched that category the last day after watching the Goldderby editors video on the category. I couldn’t believe they suggested Cox may win because she did very little in her episode. Dowd and Bledel are the only acceptable performances to win there and it really should be Dowd.

    Why is Ann Dowd an acceptable alternative for supporting?

    Because I am afraid she might zap me with her cattle prod?

    In all seriousness, everyone was a distant second to Thandie Newton in that category to me.   But I did enjoy Metz and Dowd.

    Great choices and great alternatives! I agree with almost all of them and would be extremely happy if this was the outcome! Your take on supporting drama actor is spot on!

    If I were a voter, based on the tone of this post alone, I’d be inclined to vote for anyone BUT your picks. This is not how you persuade people.

    I would say handing out 2 Emmys to 4 minutes of coffee sippin’ is cause to have a slightly urgent tone.
