    Burgess was never going to happen in the first place they prefer straight actors playing gay characters over actual gay actors playing characters.

    Sad but true. Billy Porter just talked about this is a Hollywood Reporter Roundtable interview.

    Titus Burgess should have won for seasons 1 in 2015 and season 3 in 2017. Tony Hale did not deserve the Emmy in 2015 and Baldwin did not deserve in 2017.

    deserving Emmys only come in a handful.

    I’m predicting Ramy will do well with nominations at the TCA’s, boosting its awareness. I think it’s a contender for actor and writing, with those two open spots. In an ideal world Hiam Abbass would be nominated for supporting actress, but I know that’s not happening.

    I think I’m one of the only huge Barry fans here but to those familiar with Stephen Root, he’s been in the industry for over 30 years and has never been nominated for an award. I hate how he keeps getting overlooked. He has been incredible in Barry and gave one of the best supporting performances in a comedy i’ve ever seen this year. Give that man a friggin Emmy! I’m ROOTING for you, Stephen Root.

    I feel like if Jim Parsons is nominated, he would be the most likely to beat Bill Hader.

    I’m predicting him; if the Emmys finally stop giving a shit about that atrocity SNL, he’s in.

    Walsh, most likely, Hale, doubtful, but he will not be a threat for the win imo.

    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.

    He is a four time winner in this category and voters might be sentimental to give him a farewell prize for a performance which many really liked. That being said, I’m not even predicting him for a nomination.

    Thanks for the infos about the events! Saw some coments about the amount of billboards that Russian Doll got at LA.

    Although I enjoyed Dead To Me very much, I don’t see them getting a nomination. I think even Christina has more chances than the show itself

    voters might be sentimental

    Will the myth that Emmy voters are sentimental ever die?

    They are sometimes and more so in the winners phase under the new system.
