Sure hope Fleabag gets the attention it deserves. Phoebe should win for Best Actress in a Comedy Sian Clifford should win for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Fleabag should win Best Comedy. Been a huge fan of VEEP & Julia for years, but I think Fleabag outshined them in every category this season.
THIS. Sian Clifford for Fleabag and Sarah Goldberg for Barry are the two most deserving actresses for that Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy award, yet get no love… it’s so disappointing.June 24, 2019 at 2:15 pm #1202950244
I can assure you Fleabag ain’t getting nominated for anything. Maybe writing and that’s it. These are Emmy voters we’re talking about.
Think you’re gonna be surprised then when the nominations come out because a lot of people are talking about Fleabag right now. Had a quick chat with the editor of rogerebert.com on Twitter and he was giving Sian huge praise both in his article and on Twitter.

I have Fleabag getting in Actress and Writing…It is a good show but some people are exaggerating its quality; the best episode of it is the second season premiere, and it is good, but you should go and watch the episode 4 of the four season of Please Like Me called “Degustation” and find out where the inspiration for the S2E1 of Fleabag come from and which is the better one.
The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.June 24, 2019 at 2:42 pm #1202950270
Fleabag is probably the comedy with the most industry buzz right now. Phoebe Waller Bridge is also doing a lot of press and her name is starting to be recognizable. I would be surprised if she or the show miss at this point tbh.June 24, 2019 at 2:49 pm #1202950281
Eh, if Issa Rae can get nominated for a similarly edgy, female-focused show so can PWB.June 24, 2019 at 5:05 pm #1202950369
I loved Please Like Me! Thought I was the only person here who’s seen it…
That was a great show

I have two scenarios in my head: Fleabag wins for best comedy or Phoebe wins for Lead Actress. Although I’d love to see fleabag sweeping everything I don’t think they’ll let Veep going away with nothing. And I’m thinking about change Glow for Schitts’s Creek in my predictions… What do you guys think??
Schitt’s Creek getting in comedy series is wishful thinking. It literally has never been nominated, so I don’t think they’d throw it a bone out of the blue. And Fleabag has way too much competition to win Comedy series. If Veep loses, then it’s going to Maisel or Barry. I think Fleabag has enough love to get some major nominations but to win one of them is a whole different situation.June 24, 2019 at 8:43 pm #1202950546
No series as slight as Fleabag is going to win, let alone be nominated. And you talk about MY “stanning” for The Good Place.June 24, 2019 at 9:49 pm #1202950575
Can’t help it if Thanos dropped in, snapped his fingers, vaporizing the TCA membership allowing employees of Fleabag to vote!

While I agree Fleabag isn’t going to win (I think writing and actress nominations are likely but not locked) at least the fans here (myself included) can praise the show without hating on literally every other competitor. Comedy is incredibly strong this year, and you insisting all of the series not named The Good Place are trash is not only ridiculously irritating but irrational and delusional.June 24, 2019 at 11:55 pm #1202950621
I would say that Fleabag is a lock for writing
FYC Golden Globes- Fleabag, The Crown, Olivia Colman, Jennifer Aniston
FYC Oscars- Maggie Smith, Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, Adam Driver
FYC Emmys- Schitts Creek, The Crown, Years and YearsJune 25, 2019 at 3:13 am #1202950737
I think people are being really naive and are underestimating Emmy voters by predicting all the repeat comedy nominees for acting. This was a very strong year for Comedy. I don’t think anyone but Tony Hale from Veep will be getting in for supporting actor this year. It’s just too competitive. There’s a good possibility that Janney and Tomlin will also be pushed out. I just think we will see some fresh faces.
