Easy. Many actors never watched The Americans, it was carried by the writers, then actors and producers started to watch, but never became a phenomenon to them.
I obviously know why, it’s just annoying.

That was the strangest Emmy opening I can remember since the 2008 show with all of the reality hosts.
In comedy, I was happy about the Maisel wins and was prepared for a sweep, but, after Fleabag won the directing award, I had a feeling PWB would win for lead actress. Even though I was rooting for Brosnahan, I am glad that JLD lost and that Cloris Leachman can hold the record for most Primetime Emmy acting wins longer.
In longform, I was very surprised at Arquette over Clarkson (there goes the perfect record!) and then, once Chernobyl won both directing and writing, I didn’t think Jerome had a chance, but he pulled off the win! And, while I didn’t predict this win either, I was so thrilled for the Williams win!
In variety, the winners were as expected, but I have to admit that I liked the Adam Devine number more than I thought I would! And thank goodness for Sarah Silverman’s reaction to the SNL win, 25 years after she was fired from the show!
In drama, I was happy for the Succession writing win to keep things interesting. I wasn’t really feeling the Mean Girls-like talk of breaking up parts of the Emmy to give away by the Ozark winners. And I also had a feeling that Comer would win over Oh, even if it was disappointing to see Oh lose again.
And, while I was glad that Whitford and Smits mentioned that The West Wing premiered on this date, I am sorry that Friends, along with many other shows (https://www.eonline.com/news/1072033/friends-and-the-magic-september-22-tv-premiere-date), didn’t get the same mention. Also, why no Crazy Ex-Girlfriend in the package of shows that said farewell this year? And Carol Channing, who didn’t really do any television of note in her career, was an odd choice to end the In Memoriam. But at least the show came in just about on time with no host!September 22, 2019 at 8:02 pm #1203096551
Well, I hated so much about this year’s ceremony. Some good stuff, but I am bitter about certain things – VERY bitter.
Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.September 22, 2019 at 8:02 pm #1203096554
I’d rather have Emilia and the other cast members give the speech. I’m pressed at not being given another Carice-Lena hug moment like in 2015 because the former is separated from the rest of the actors ugh.

Succession will win next year
The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.September 22, 2019 at 8:03 pm #1203096559
I wish they addressed the backlash… and were like screw your petition bitches.September 22, 2019 at 8:03 pm #1203096561
Well Barry had a similar showing to Atlanta last year – winning one acting Emmy.September 22, 2019 at 8:03 pm #1203096567

The Crown is going to sweep though, it’s a safe costume drama that already has love and will be a constant through the changing face of TV.
