    OK, Stranger Things just won both the PGA and SAG Awards. Does that mean they are taking frontrunning position for the Emmys?

    Yep and I think that it was just vote-splitting that cost them the win in SAG actress. Westworld seems to lack passion.

    Yep stranger things is winning. Unless a new show comes along and mixes things up. We still have House of Cards, which is a wild card. New showrunners, which probobly means the show will either have its best season or its worst season. HoC is a wildcard. As of now though Stranger Things is in a distant first.

    I like its chances but I wonder if momentum will have largely faded for it by this fall? Also, keep in mind, for what it’s worth, the Emmys never fully embraced The X-Files.

    Times have changed since The X-Files was a thing. Stranger Things is as close to a  frontrunner as we can get at this point.

    I think it may be too “genre” for the Emmys. With Game of Thrones out this year it could be wide open unless House of Cards comes out with a stellar season.

    To add to what I said – I would think The Crown would be more of a frontrunner than Stranger Things. That’s more up the Emmys’ alley.

    Yes, but the precursors. Stranger Things has been dominating the precursors. PGA win over Game of thrones is huge. The fact that Stranger Things one the PGA and SAG over arguably the most popular and beloved show of all time, Game of Thrones, Is HUGE.

    No, by the time voting starts Season 2 will be just released. So it will be hot as hell.

    PS: But, yeah. The Crown seems like the obvious choice for the Emmys.

    I am sort of scared this will turn into a Gandhi vs E.T. sort of year but with TV instead of movies. It actually is the perfect comparison because Stranger Things and ET are both similar sci-fi properties about kids and RT lost to Gandhi, a traditional baity movie. I am scared the Crown will be the TV version of Gandhi. It wouldn’t be a bad winner though.

    how? ST won PGA and SAG over one of the all time most famous shows, GoT.

    Academy tastes shift more toward “The Crown.” Pedigree, Globes wins, SAG wins.

    I am surprised that Stranger Things has gotten this far without any prestige really and I do think that The Crown seems like the more obvious winner on paper, but so did House of CardsHomeland, Downton Abbey and Mad Men over Game of Thrones.  PGA and SAG is a tremendous start, particularly when both are over the incumbent Emmy-winning and record-breaking Game of Thrones.  Curious to see if Stranger Things takes WGA and DGA and becomes unstoppable.  The former did not nominate The Crown, nor did it award Game of Thrones last year, so things are looking good.  The Crown won the Globe, but the last two winners of that were Mr. Robot and The Affair.

    We still have House of Cards, which is a wild card. New showrunners, which probobly means the show will either have its best season or its worst season. HoC is a wildcard.

    The time has passed for House of Cards.  It is past its Emmy heyday, there are new options and even SAG has moved on.

    It has already made it six months.

    Also, keep in mind, for what it’s worth, the Emmys never fully embraced The X-Files.

    What about the last two years when Game of Thrones swept?

    As much as i’d like it to be, I don’t think Stranger Things is front-runner just yet. It’s pretty obvious that the lack of love for The Crown at the guilds is because of its late premiere, and it’s obviously the more “emmy-friendly” show. But hey stranger things have happened. At least we know for sure it ain’t Westworld, good to know they aren’t here for the GoT-lite.

    And why the fuck is anyone mentioning House Of Cards? The perennial slot-filler is neither threat nor wildcard.
