I feel like if Jim Parsons is nominated, he would be the most likely to beat Bill Hader.June 12, 2019 at 8:54 am #1202934500This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 12, 2019 at 9:09 am #1202934537This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.June 12, 2019 at 9:31 am #1202934577
Netflix did like four FYC events for Russian Doll and Glow, so I think they are having these two shows as safe bets
I just spent ten days in Los Angeles and kept a tally of the 150 billboards and posters that I saw around the city. Russian Doll was among the comedies that I saw advertised most, but I did not see GLOW once after seeing it maybe more than any other show when I made the same trip last year. Chris says that such a billboard exists though. Also, the DVDs that Netflix sent voters for Russian Doll and The Kominsky Method came in their own special packages, whereas GLOW was just in one of their big boxes with a bunch of other shows. As for events, Netflix held one in Los Angeles and one in New York for each of Russian Doll, The Kominsky Method and GLOW; Universal also held a Russian Doll event that was not exclusively open to Emmy voters.
Other panels not exclusively to open to Emmy voters also variably featured people from these shows and others. All three featured on the scene-stealers panel. Both Russian Doll and GLOW featured on the costumes panel, as well as at crafts day and both women days. Russian Doll also featured on the music panel. So I would say that Russian Doll is their top comedy priority because it seems like they pulled out all the stops for it. Then I would give the edge to The Kominsky Method over GLOW because of the screener situation. They brought out GLOW to more events, but The Kominsky Method is not a woman’s or crafts-heavy show.
I see it as a bad sign that the Dead to Me event where they announced their renewal was not restricted to Emmy voters, but also open to guild members and “Other”, presumably to fill seats. They also did not do a New York event for it.June 12, 2019 at 12:58 pm #1202934857

Parsons winning 5 times would be ridiculous.June 13, 2019 at 6:41 am #1202935841
I know I’ve said this before, but it’s honestly hilarious how similar this is to last year’s drama situation. A series from an up-and-coming streaming service sweeps in the absence of an HBO juggernaut? Other than guest actress, Maisel won the exact same awards Handmaid’s did in 2017. If last year is any indication, voters like to spread the wealth after having a show sweep like that. I think that Maisel will fare better than Handmaid’s did last year just due to the fact that its second season was much more highly regarded (I’d say that its Directing and Supporting Actor trophies are fairly safe), but don’t expect to see any repeat wins outside of Directing. As much as Hader is deserving of a second trophy, they seem more likely to give it to someone they ignored in the past. Danson and Gilpin are the pair that I see most benefiting from this. Louis-Dreyfus is still safe though, despite being the ultimate repeat lmao.
Also, I’m trying to ignore what’s high up in the prediction center for comedy because Gold Derby is so often wrong when it comes to comedy and limited categories. Remember last year when Will & Grace was supposed to be this juggernaut contender? It’s so easy to get swept up by the discourse in the forums and be convinced by the opinions of just a few people who have no connection to the industry. I’m now just doing my best to think outside the box and foresee any of the surprises that could pop up.June 13, 2019 at 7:49 am #1202935921
