    Does it make sense to predict The Good Place only for Series and Actor? The only other possibility is Supporting Actress, but I’m not predicting it.

    It could get a random director nomination, But again not confident in it.

    I’m sad nobody is talking about Tuca & Bertie. That show gets absolutely amazing by the end. This show is proof of why animated shows should be considered for best comedy series. Tiffany Haddish is fantastic in this show. Hoping it does well in nominations. Haddish would be a great voice over winner.

    It depends; does the Academy membership really want to commit professional seppuku for the third straight year by having entertainment media expose and blast their broadcast network bias (again?), their refusal to see just how popular the show is with critics (again?, with 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and a Metascore of 96?) and fans (again?, especially after digital viewing, it’s the network’s #1 show in the almighty demo)? Do they WANT to invite disdain and ridicule?

    Do they slough off major gains in key below the line guilds (WGA, PGA, American Cinema Editors, Motion Picture Sound Editors and Art Directors Guild?) even as the relentless reign of error by Mrs. Maisel continues? Does it say fork you to the TV Critics Association’s reigning Comedy Program of the Year? Does it ignore their breakthroughs with the Nebula and Hugo Awards; the defending Hugo winner, I add, for Best Dramatic Presentation Short Form? And do they turn a blind eye to a Peabody-winner, the only broadcast network series this year to achieve that high honor?

    To say nothing about next week’s TCA nominations, the Empire Awards (UK) TV nominations Thursday and the Saturn Awards (if they ever get off their asses and announce its nominations that are now 4 months overdue; a new producer of the show, apparently is the holdup). IF they don’t give one-one millionth of a tenth of a shit (hey to season 2 of Party Down), then snub them again. It deserves, conservatively, between 12 and 15 nominations. 18, tops.

    But that’s just me.

    I- Certain comments on here have just made it hard to deal with The Good Place anymore.

    I’ve taken it out of my writing predictions. I don’t think they can make it without Schur submitted. Riley would say voters don’t get the writers’ names, but still.

    I could be completely wrong on this, but didn’t Barry overperform in noms regarding writing and directing last year? I think Russian Doll can either follow suit and be seen as a real force to be reckoned with like Barry became last year, or get just Lyonne/Lyonne and series.

    But didn’t they submit like 3 episodes for each categories? Makes it hard to get a nom honestly.

    who do you have winning supporting actress? I think Borstein is safe to repeat

    Sorry my reply took so long! I’ve been traveling and spending most of the day without Internet.

    Honestly, I’m not sure. I have Gilpin in right now, but I completely understand that that choice is HEAVILY influenced by my own personal bias, just because I’m not sure. Borstein would be an expected choice to repeat, and it would be really deserved because she’s AWESOME, but it just doesn’t seem like the kind of undeniable performance that can win twice in a row. SNL ladies will probably split votes, Hinkle doesn’t have the material, Carden will be lucky just to get nominated, Goldberg kinda lives in her male costars’ shadows, and everyone else is probably a non-factor except Chlumsky. Chlumsky and Borstein are both kind of tied in second place for me right now, and while Anna’s got the final season advantage, I hesitate to put her in first just because she didn’t have a whole ton to do this season, and she became EXTREMELY unlikeable (and not in a fun way like Louis-Dreyfus or Dowd). So I guess Gilpin? She reminds me a lot of Newton just in that they’re both co-leads in supporting who were the focus of their show’s critical acclaim in the second season. She also has most of the strong emotional beats (less so now that Brie was given heavier stuff in season two, but still, Gilpin’s the dramatic heart of the show). However, I agree that Gilpin also just doesn’t seem like a realistic winner, and while I’m personally rooting for her, I would be surprised if she actually did it.

    So, in summary, I have Gilpin in my first spot, partly because of stan bias and partly because my gut is telling me to, but I could see this category going literally any direction.

    This is objectively untrue.

    Literally no one said that

    Why are y’all so used to living in your bubbles and when someone says something you all get hot and bothered. I have seen people complain how disappointing the season was and I posted that. Why is it so hard to accept that?

    Better Things is a niche show barely watched by anyone so the complaints won’t be as loud as that of Game of Thrones’. Do you need the whole internet to scream at you to accept that?

    This Is Us exists in both case. The good place is far from being the network’s #1 show even with digital ratings. And Blackish got many nominations in recent years.

    I got carried away there; I meant to say it was NBC’s most popular COMEDY after digital viewing. Sorry for messing up.

    I think some people are very harsh on The Good Place because of Guest 2018’s behaviour. It’s a very well-written show and it is deserving of a series nom. Carden’s performance is outstanding (certainly better than the SNL actresses). Danson and Rudolf are also great.

    Kristen Bell and the directing are serviceable but aren’t particularly worthy of acclaim.
