Things I told you that came true:
Chernobyl winning Series, Directing and Writing without acting awards, all of which would be spread among 4 different shows. Arquette winning consolation prize in supporting, she also deserved it anyway.
Alex Borstein repeating despite losing voice-over – Allison Janney analogy; Colman losing because winning an Oscar does NOT win you an Emmy (ask McConnaughey, Ali etc), she had an equally outstanding co-star that stole votes from her.
Writing being between Succession and GoT.
That’s it; I did also say Williams would pull a Cynthia Nixon but that was unrealistic af anyway lol.
Anyway, I don’t really mind Bateman’s win in directing. GoT obviously vote-splitted, though wtf happened in Casting?! How did GoT win there? Lazy name-check? They literally just had 1 new guest star this season. I like Ozark and Bateman has directed the majority or half of the episodes, it’s his passion project, he brings out the A-game from the actors. It’s not really a bad win, and I’m happy for him. Also positive part? He has his Emmy and they don’t owe him anything, no forced wins or nominations because he’s Bateman and overdue. I’m sure he’s really happy he won directing too and couldn’t care less about acting.September 23, 2019 at 12:39 am #1203097276
I can’t believe Game of Thrones is done at the Emmys; it’s making me feel very emotional. The standing ovation the cast got when they all presented together really made me happy. I will miss those gals so much!

I’m sorry but I just can’t get over that Drama Directing win. It’s been bugging me all morning lol
I’m at a loss for words with this oneSeptember 23, 2019 at 12:49 am #1203097290
Chernobyl was only one win away from tying Angels in America record for most wins in limited series categories (11 wins). It just shows what a juggernaut it was. And to think all the experts underestimated it…
Isn’t John Adams the record holder? It has even more than GoT’s record on Drama Series if I recall correctlySeptember 23, 2019 at 1:28 am #1203097302
It was my first time predicting and I should have listened to those that advised against last minute changes! Three that then turned out to be losses.
Best moments for me were Comer’s win and reaction, the look JLD had on her face when she realised Fleabag was sweeping, Martin McDonagh being in awe every time PWB’s name was called, and the very clear female true friendships between Comer/Oh and PWB/Sian.
Mostly everybody seemed very happy for everybody else, which was awesome to watch!September 23, 2019 at 1:39 am #1203097306
How about replying in words and not insulting pics? I’ve never done that to anyone. Afford me the same basic courtesy, please.
How about you finally start to appreciate the success of The Good Place?! It’s not the Emmys’ cup of tea yet the fact that it’s managed to gain attention through the years and this year at the Emmys receive nominations for Series AND Writing is simply outstanding for such show! Along with repeats for Danson and Rudolph. And to even consider the show is no longer that good. Be thankful and stop spamming us.September 23, 2019 at 2:18 am #1203097310
If I think about:
Drama Actress: Davis (2015) – Maslany (2016) – Moss (2017) – Foy (2018) – Comer (2018)
Drama Actor: Malek (2016) – Brown (2017) – Rhys (2018) – Porter (2019)
Supp Actress: Dowd (2017) – Newton (2018) – Garner (2019)
Writing: Handmaid’s (2017) – The Americans (2018) – Succession (2019)
I mean, half of those wouldn’t be my personal winners, but you can’t deny that voters sometimes have taste. The writers’ branch continues to slay with its choices. Good on them for not choosing the terrible GOT finale or the lackluster Killing Eve episode!
