    This season looks as good as ever, I’m so excited! “so saddle up those emphysema tanks you inbred cousin fuckers” lol Amy is my favorite. Chlumsky would be my pick to finally win the Emmy if Judith Light hadn’t been so extraordinary this year.

    I was intrigued into how they were going to handle the fact that Selina is no long President let alone the Veep, but from what I seen in this trailer, they are gonna pull it off.

    Choo, choo, it’s JLD coming in for her 6th consecutive win.

    Or Kate McKinnon.

    Whoa, I was taken aback by the lack of hair on Jonah’s head, wasn’t expecting that (I wonder how many insults will be hurled towards him as a result).

    Can’t wait to see how similar this storyline is to our real-life political realm, especially when David Mandel made a point of saying the storylines were written before the election.

    Also, I hope JLD is preparing what kind of comedic bit she’s going to do when she wins Veep Emmy #6, because she’s definitely going to win again.

    Never again. She has hers, she shouldn’t get another one. She is the only funny one from SNL so I give her props for that. I think she’ll probably win again though.

    I won’t have a problem if she wins again, since she basically has been the main cast member writing the funny sketches, but I hope Anna Chlumsky finally wins. Tim Simons also deserves to be at least nominated, especially after his work throughout season 5.

    I really hope Simons gets in this year too. Personally I don’t really like comparing sketch comedy to normal sitcoms, I feel like if there’s enough shows to get their own series category they could probably just have their own acting category too. To me it’s about as different as comedy and drama acting. If they did, McKinnon would dominate in Julia Louis Dreyfus fashion.

    The trailer is reassuring Veep as we’ve known it isn’t radically altered despite the new circumstance of our protagonist.

    I had a nightmare Veep season 6 was critically panned, with like a 28 on metacritic. That shit was terrifying.

    ^ Fingers crossed! Although even if Veep bombs and Silicon Valley leads in nominations, the pundits will still proclaim black-ish as the Atlanta alternative.

    dont worry. It’s not true. I had a dream that Fiorinna was the republican nominee and beat Hillary Clinton and I ran around saying it was a vision. And then shot happened. But who knows, maybe that’s the next election or 2024? I could still be a fortune teller.

    So what is Selina now? I think they should have finished it with season 5. That ending would have been a terrific finale. I am so confused, is she part of Montez’s cabinet or will she turn into a lobbyist or is she just going to become a humanitarian and bide her time until the next election. Last season they went through every possible event that could happen after an election, so I’m wondering if there will be an assassination, impeachment or recount. HBO has kept this under wrap well.
