    Did not consider “The Iron Throne”, “Nice and Neat” or “Winner” because those nominations are trash.  “Holly” individually is okay, but no, so it comes down to Bodyguard and Succession, who should really be facing off for the Outstanding Drama Series win.  I would vote Succession if it were the pilot or “Whose Side Are You On?” in contention instead, as I am in the minority about the finale.  It came off as both a cheap reset to me and a soap opera twist that I feel should have been beneath the show.  People seem to have forgotten that “Episode 2” was the best episode of Bodyguard (check the IMDb ratings) and it did also lean excessively into soapy tropes, but it is still the episode that I will nominate in my personal awards for writing because of its narrative ambition.  But the pilot was fine on its own and I really appreciated how David’s arc paid off in the finale, which is largely due to how it was set up in the pilot, so I can support a win for it.

    People are trashing “The Iron Throne” yet it’s  leading. I just can’t.

    Obviously not the Iron Throne, or Bodyguard. The Handmaid’s Tale is out because it shouldn’t even be eligible, but it’s terrible anyways. Killing Eve is fine, but not worthy of a win. So it’s between Succession and Better Call Saul, both great episodes but Winner was such a huge turning point in the show’s story and the best episode of the best drama of the year. I’m curious what episode Riley saw, because it wasn’t the season finale of BCS.

    Succession should be easily winning this. I’m glad that it has gotten a considerable amount of votes, especially in a place that is usually apathetic to it.

    Wait, (since I can’t see the results) “The Sh*t Throne” is winning?

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    Bodyguard was a fun ride but I accounted that more to the directing than writing which became too convoluted at times.  I would rank “Wiedersehen” higher but went with the “Winner.

    Lol at people saying “Winner” is a shit pick.

    Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor
