They gave drama to GoT but it was mainoy due to the lack of an obvious alternative. The show had a very weak night with two wins only, just like last year. It has not won directing or writing in years. And none of the other acting nods turned into a in. It wasn’t the huge love fest some had expected.September 23, 2019 at 2:50 am #1203097319
Every year I seem to forget all over again, but do they always present the categories in bulks (all comedy, all Limited, all drama, etc..)? Because that was awful.September 23, 2019 at 3:26 am #1203097343
You’re right. I don’t know why internet showed Angels in America as record holder. And how the hell I could forget about John Adams…oh, yes because it was boring as hell.
Lol, it was at least good to watch in history class. My high school history teacher had some good taste.

PHOEBE F***** WALLER BRIDGE, Y’ALL!!!
FYC: Fleabag Season 2 in ALL categories!September 23, 2019 at 4:14 am #1203097393
Sian Clifford was probably so close to win supporting actress… The voters who just name check Oscar winners should be banned.September 23, 2019 at 4:20 am #1203097397
Love the following:
- No more GoT at the Emmys
- Arquette’s victory
- Fleabag’s wins
- Michelle Williams finally winning an industry award. (Golden Globes don’t count.)
- Julia Garner!
And yes, I bet Clifford was this close to winning Supporting Actress in a Comedy.September 23, 2019 at 4:36 am #1203097411
Clifford was my should have won pick too. I’m not too disappointed because the real prize for her is being known to directors/producers who clearly like her work. Hopefully she’ll line up some promising projects!September 23, 2019 at 4:51 am #1203097421
Overall quiet happy with the results for the most part

D&D losing writing and GOT losing directing is double chef’s kiss. The humiliation!!!September 23, 2019 at 5:01 am #1203097427

12 Emmys are hardly ‘humiliation’. They got like 4 all-time records yesterdaySeptember 23, 2019 at 5:02 am #1203097429
Maybe this fiasco will trigger reforms in the Academy. If you can’t produce a comedy or drama with more than, say, eight episodes, you are automatically shipped to limited series. It is patently unfair to those shows who tell their stories more leisurely than those who want to rush things. The Emmy voters fell for the hype, the flavor of the moment with Fleabag. This cannot be repeated.September 23, 2019 at 5:04 am #1203097431
GoT only won because it had no clear alternative and people working in production such as costumes etc voted for it. It’s clear directors, writers and actors were not here to award it. Netflix really should have released the crown in spring.September 23, 2019 at 5:06 am #1203097434

It won just as much Acting Awards as it did in it’s best years- yet still got 9 acting nominations. It lost writing last year as well yet still won Drama Series despite the hard competition. And yeah, the Directing thing was an embarrassment. But the only explanation I can find for it is vote splitting, which is exactly the opposite of lack of passion.
There’s no need to find excuses to diminish their accomplishments.September 23, 2019 at 5:07 am #1203097437This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 23, 2019 at 5:11 am #1203097441
The Crown indeed would be a tough competition, as for Stranger Things I think it was actually wise for them to postpone.
I don’t think they are ‘big’ enough to land a major win like Drama Series, and next year they will probably sweep the Creative Arts because S3 was stunning
