    Share your thoughts on this unforgettable Emmy line-up and vote for who do you think SHOULD have won.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Chernobyl rightfully won, it was a VERY well made show.
    Wouldn’t be mad with a WTSU win, or even a Fosse/Verdon one (kinda loved that show).

    Til this day haven’t watch Escape and Sharp Objects aged like milk to me.

    FYC:

    All things Succession, Severance, Ted Lasso, The Great and The White Lotus! Also, Colin Firth and Janelle James while you're at it.

    1. Sharp Objects
    2. Chernobyl
    3. When They See Us
    4. Fosse/Verdon

    5. Escape at Dannemora

    Aside from maybe Dannemora (which is still a great show, I just didn’t like it as much as other people seemed to), each of these would have been excellent series winners. Glad Chernobyl, Fosse/Verdon and When They See Us at least all won a main ceremony award in the end and I’m glad Rockwell later won at SAG for Fosse/Verdon (he wasn’t my personal winner but his work is quite underrated there). Sad the same couldn’t be said of Sharp Objects (I say this as someone who marginally preferred Williams to Adams).

    I was actually really happy they split this. I enjoyed all those shows. Great series in different ways.

    My personal winner that year was actually A Very English Scandal. Criminally underrated (at least it won supporting actor though!)

    Yup.

    I enjoyed this but I was way more taken by Whishaw versus Grant.

    To my mind, and maybe showing my age as a non-american child of the late 70s, Chernobyl was one of the most brilliant and intelligent pieces of television I’ve ever seen. The terror it conveyed was accurate for us living in the fear of nuclear warfare. And let’s not forget that score.

    When They See Us was also foremost in my mind, recalling the events as a child and my father explaining American race issues to me in detail. It was also very powerful.

    But the spare performances, incredible cinematography and resonant (for me) issues in Chernobyl made it one for the ages. Absolutely peerless.

    Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.

    I thought both were excellent and win worthy.

    Chernobyl was really a cut above the rest. Talking about the others, Sharp Objects is really one of the best character studies I’ve seen on television. I’ve not seen more technically sound filmmaking (editing, cinematography, score etc.) and it was robbed at the creative arts Emmys. Fosse Verdon was really entertaining to see but not that deep enough imo. Escape at Dannemora was also exceptional (especially acting wise) but I found it a tad bit slow. When They See Us was excellent and hard hitting but I felt something amiss, I simply cannot understand what.

    Ranking:

    1. Chernobyl
    2. Sharp Objects
    3. WTSU
    4. Escape at Dannemora
    5. Fosse/Verdon
