    The fact that Jim Carey got nominated for a golden globes doesn’t make him stronger in such a stacked year.

    If you think like that Christina Applegate should be nominated. She is an Emmy winner, golden globe nominee and Tony nominee. I have her on my predictions but I still don’t think she’s getting in. Comedy is definitely the category that I’m having more fun while predicting. I hope we get a lot of surprises this year

    Plus Getting On was HBO, HBO is HBO, it always has visibility

    Tell that to The Leftovers. By the way, literally no one was talking about Getting On, at least Kidding is in the conversation for lead actor.

    Honey, The Leftovers is fantasy and Academy doesn’t watch fantasy unless its GoT or ST. They never were into the show anyways.

    To be fair to the Emmys here’s a short list of Sci-Fi/Fantasy shows nominated for Best Drama Series since 1989 (That aren’t GOT or Stranger Things):

    • Westworld
    • True Blood
    • Heroes
    • The X-Files
    • Star Trek: The Next Generation
    • Beauty and the Beast
    • Lost
    • The Handmaid’s Tale (Debatable)

    And this doesn’t include the shows that got Writing/Directing and/or Acting nominations such as Buffy, Battlestar Galactica, Alias

    They could have a better track record but it could be worse. I’d argue they were more consistent at nominating Fantasy and Sci-fi than the Oscars (Prior to expanding the nominees).

    Except that this is a horrible track record when compared to the volume of top quality fantasty/scifi/”genre” shows.

    I was curious to see how often 100/1 odds actually get nominated, so I went back and looked at the previous leaderboards for Emmy Nomination predictions.

    Nominees at 100/1 odds, (The numbers in brackets are what position they were ranked on the leaderboard).

    (I couldn’t get accurate rankings for 2016, problem with the leaderboards for that year, certain shows are listed twice and none are ranked at 100/1) So I left it blank.

    A quick note, there has been at least one 100/1 nominee for supporting actress  in a comedy every year i’ve checked (Three in 2012). So if you’re gonna do any, i’d recommend someone in Supporting Actress – Comedy.

    2012

    Comedy Series: Girls (Season 1) (10th)
    Lead Actress – Comedy: Edie Falco – Nurse Jackie (9th)
    Lead Actor – Comedy: Jon Cryer – Two and a Half Men (7th)
    Supporting Actress – Comedy: Kathryn Joosten – Desperate Housewives (10th);Mayim Bialik – The Big Bang Theory (13th);Merrit Wever – Nurse Jackie (15th)
    Supporting Actor – Comedy: Bill Hader – Saturday Night Live (17th)

    2013
    Lead Actress – Comedy: Laura Dern – Enlightened (7th)

    Supporting Actress – Comedy: Anna Chlumsky – Veep (10th); Jane Lynch – Glee (19th)
    Supporting Actor – Comedy: Tony Hale – Veep (16th)

    2014

    Comedy Series: Silicon Valley (9th)
    Lead Actress – Comedy: Melissa McCarthy – Mike & Molly (9th)
    Supporting Actress – Comedy: Kate McKinnon – Saturday Night Live (12th)
    Supporting Actor – Comedy: Fred Armisen – Portlandia (26th)

    2015

    Comedy Series: Parks and Recreation (10th)
    Supporting Actress – Comedy: Gaby Hoffman – Transparent (17th);Niecy Nash – Getting On (Unlisted)
    Supporting Actor – Comedy: Adam Driver – Girls (14th)
    Keegan-Michael Key (46th)

    2017

    Lead Actress – Comedy: Jane Fonda – Grace and Frankie (9th) 95/1
    Lead Actor – Comedy: Zach Galifianakis – Baskets (16th)
    Supporting Actress – Comedy: Kathryn Hahn – Transparent (23rd);Vanessa Byer – Saturday Night Live (Unlisted)

    2018
    Lead Actress – Comedy: Issa Rae – Insecure (10th)

    I’m certain Mullally or Metcalf (if not both) is getting nominated.

    If voters vote for TBBT in Lead Actor, Directing and Guest Actress. Could Mayim Bialik get a surprise nod. There’s pretty much  always a surprise nominee in this category with 100/1 Odds so I think she has a good shot.

    Globes FYC- Fleabag, Phoebe Waller Bridge, Jodie Comer, Dame Emma Thompson, The Crown

    SAG FYC- The Crown, Olivia Colman, Fleabag, PWB

    Critics Choice- Schitts Creek, Fleabag, Killing Eve, Bodyguard

    BAFTA- Fleabag, Killing Eve

    Oscars FYC ‘Little Women’ ‘Downton Abbey’ ‘Maggie Smith’

    The 100/1 pattern in supporting actress bodes well for Sarah Goldberg

    Parsons is a (fairly unlikely) possibility because his category is weak and it’ll get directing because it literally has to because of the rules. Bialik is in one of the most competitive categories this year, there is not a chance

    Agreed…The only category on the comedy side that isn’t competitive is Best Actor. I think Bill Hader, Ted Danson, and Michael Douglas are the only for sure bets…but I wonder if even Douglas is still going to get in, to be honest. Will see if the Academy takes a liking to The Kominsky Method.

    Unlike the Drama and Limited Series races Comedy is where all the action and suspense are. Mrs. Maisel, Barry and Veep have very strong arguments to win series but i wouldn’t be surprise if something like GLOW or Russian Doll or even The Good Place end with a major upset. I can’t imagen HBO winning Drama Series, Limited Series, TV Movie, Variety Series, etc. That’s why I’m predicting Mrs Maisel to repeat in Comedy Series though my personal favorites are Barry and GLOW.

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.
