    not that.

    esp the first. the first network show from this decade to get a Series nom, when it’s ABC Wednesday’s 4th highest rated comedy and not even in the overall T20 on year-end critics’ lists?

    Actor and series are safe bets. Writing (thanks to the expansion) and actress are also possibilities. I wish that Fishbourne and Lewis were eligible for guest again, because if what in my head plays out, they would also be in the running there.

    Those open slots really help Tracee’s chances more than ever.

    If Black-ish is going to expand on nomination morning Marsai Martin better earn a nod. She’s so funny! She is so deserving.

    Well, its a very strong contender after ‘Hope’. 

    Predictions –

    Actor – Anderson (lock)
    Acress – Eliss Ross (very likely)
    Writing – Hope (very likely)

    Series I’m not as confident as others are so not predicting it there. But it could get in.

    I’m predicting series, actor, actress, and directing. I think Ross is more popular than people think. Also, last week’s historic episode was directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller and I’m sure she will be nominated. The show deserves a writing nom but I don’t think that will happen

    I think that people give more meaning to that episodic WGA nom. than they should.

    Anderson is the only one that I’m confident about. The rest is all up in the air and could go either way. 

    Airing right after Modern Family is their advantage.

    Hope is the exact kind of episode that wins comedy writing Emmys. It should be nominated, I think it will be nominated, and it could lead to a directing nod to boot.

    ^^ Hope could very well get nominated for writing and/or directing. Director Beth McCarthy-Miller is an 8-time Emmy nominee.

    black-ish is yet another non-cable sitcom that I disregarded after a mediocre pilot, but I would probably enjoy if I watched it week-to-week and regret that I am not able to champion it come Emmy season.  New Girl, The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Fresh Off the Boat are on similar ground.

    Anyway, writing is a real possibility.  There is an open slot, Louie is ineligible and I doubt that The Last Man on Earth comes back since I do not think that anyone continued that show after the pilot.  I am currently predicting Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but they missed last year.  I am also predicting Master of None, even though it could not even get a WGA New Series nomination.  The category is wide open; hopefully black-ish just submits one (great) episode.

    Maybe
    even more wide open is lead actress, but I am not seeing a series
    nomination.  jjjmoss covered why.  Then again, we could end up with nine
    nominees if the two-percent rule is triggered.

    What will fill that 7th Comedy series slot is the biggest mystery of this Emmy season to me. I would cry if that happens, but even them bringing TBBT back looks like
    it would make more sense than the black-ish possibility.
    Even if the latter takes a huge leap this year; it also look like it would be one of those shows that gets lead/writing/directing noms but fails to get in Series due to lack of general awareness and popularity like Episodes,or The Last Man on Earth.
    UKS, for example, is the exact opposite of this definition. It wasn’t beloved, but enough voter were aware of its existence to put in their ”Why not?” slots.

    IMO, possibilites;

    1-Anderson

    2-Ellis-Ross

    (gap)
    3-Writing

    4-Directing

    (bigger gap)
    5-Series

    Maybe Inside Amy Schumer or Key&Peele should try to go to Comedy Series route if they are allowed to do? Life’s no life without risks.

    I agree that Black-ish is on shaky ground when it comes to racking up more noms but I am not sure why you think that series is so far out of the question.

    You mentioned yourself that the seventh slot is somewhat of a mystery and after dropping Parsons I just do not see them going back to TBBT.

    Emmy Runner, you have Broad City which you have admitted it somewhat of a placeholder even though that would be awesome.

    Riley, you have Ballers. I actually think The Rock may sneak into the ever irrelevant lead actor category but how do you see it make a play for series?

    Again, I have Black-ish in my last slot even though I am not at all confident in predicting it. There are just so few shows that I can see with better prospects. I am not buying Horace and Pete at all. Girls seems like old news but it has actually been having a resurgent season. I do not think that voters watched Last Man post pilot.

    I do not think that Amy and Key and Peele would want to jeapordize sure-thing nominations by jumping up to comedy series even if they were allowed to.

    What are the other options? A bunch of the editors have Mozart in the Jungle but even for such an up in the air slot I still see that show as a Globes anomoly.

    Because Black-ish would be the only show in this decade that got nominated for Series without none of the top guilds backing it up with their top awards. (That’s why I might put Broad City in front of them. Getting a top nomination in WGA is really a big thing and shows greater support) The closest we get similar to that is HIMYM in 2009, when again they had 7 nominees in the category.
    I have not many reasons to believe Black-ish has that overall popularity amongst industry right now. It very well could have, maybe this will be the year that it breaks into Emmys and those guilds or maybe it’s just something that we’re hyping up on our own. It’s not even something that I could classify as a critical darling.
    I always mention that overall popularity when I talk about Series categories because Emmys have that stupid rule that allows a voter to vote up to 10 different shows on their ballot which is the exact opposite of what Oscars trying to do(with their ranking ballots and trying to get the passion votes and passion votes only on nominating round)
    Zero writing/directing nominations and 4 Series nominations despite always submitting one or two episodes in both of those fields to avoid the split . How rare was that? The visibility of TBBT got them those nominations so far and it could continue to get that in a weak field.
    Maybe them dropping Parsons(thank God!) should be judged seperately since I think even someone who loves the show must have gotten tired of him winning after that point. But people in acting branch still gave 2 nominations to that horrible show last year, so…
    On another point, Homeland was an anomaly. When they drop you, they really really drop you. So maybe I should be more optimistic and think more freshly like you guys.

    I’ve seen a few episodes of Ballers, it’s definitely not a thing that I would regularly watch. And I get the sense that Emmy voters would be on the same page with me in this. I even questioned in my head that how is that show on HBO, and not on Showtime.

    Key&Peele definitely shouldn’t be doing that, when they aired their latest episode in the past summer. But Inside Amy Schumer already played that gamble on PGA and it paid off. And is its style really too different than Louie which competed in Comedy field?
