It will be very interesting to see which of the 3 frontrunner only gets one directing nominee. I think Barry is safe to get 2 since it only submitted 2 episodes while Maisel and Veep submitted 3. I say whatever gets only 1 nomination takes the directing Emmy (no vote split), but might not have the support to take series.
Veep also submitted only two episodes.July 13, 2019 at 11:31 pm #1202974220
Veep also only submitted two episodes actually.
You’re right. Well I guess Maisel might be the vulnerable one, but All Alone and Welcome to The Catskills are clearly better submissions than the Punishment Room and I think the Academy will see that. Anything can happen really.

Didn’t Maisel submit 2 last year and only get one nominated? Same thing could happen againJuly 14, 2019 at 2:30 pm #1202974870
Could directing be Veep 2x, Barry 2x, Maisel 2x????July 14, 2019 at 2:47 pm #1202974888This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 14, 2019 at 3:09 pm #1202974921
It is not a reach. It EXISTS. It is an insult to actual comedies that are going to get kicked to the curb Tuesday. And it’s regrettable that not enough is being said about this. There’s category fraud, and now genre fraud. That’s why Netflix switched Sex Education to a *drama* when it has more comedy than a Dead to Me or Russian Doll. There’s an easy solution: Short Form Series Presentation. Have eight nominees split between comedy and drama, 6-9 episodes. Let those with 10 or more eps be. It’s a win-win.
Just because it’s not YOUR definition of comedy, doesn’t make it not a comedy. You are very biased with your type of humor. I realize some shows are stretching when it comes to the comedy/drama border but the Academy does take notice (OITNB) and will change it accordingly. And the episode thing is also ridiculous. It’s only in America when they want like 20 episodes of a show per season. In the UK it’s totally normal to have less than 10 episodes.July 14, 2019 at 6:52 pm #1202975122
Awards Daily seems to be bullish on Blackish. 4 of 6 of their critics say it’s a lock for series, Andesron and Ellis-Ross. A reminder, then:
Blackish (S5): 91% Rotten Tomatoes, 71 Metacritic.
The Good Place (S3): 100% RT, 96 Metacritic for S3
The better network comedy is pretty obvi from those numbers.
Nobody cares about RT or metacritic scores, especially not in a year in which Ozark and its 50s metascore is basically a lock for a nomination.
Stop annoying us with those numbers.July 14, 2019 at 11:12 pm #1202975277

They did not submit Daniel Palladino at the Emmys last year, but did at DGA and he was nominated there. Barry submitted Alec Berg at both the Emmys and DGA, failing to get him nominated. Barry seems like it could not be hotter though, so we are in for what could be a telling snub. I have Berg missing because “ronny/lily” was such a singular achievement that I think that people will feel that voting for it will be sufficient to support Barry. The Palladinos are harder to distinguish from each other, especially with Daniel having the flashier episode title to compensate for being less of a name-check himself. Veep seems to have much less heat, but its track record is unparalleled. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel has lost DGA both seasons, but Veep has won it for its last three. And it was triple-nominated for all of its submissions for its last two seasons at the Emmys. Even if it has lost heat, it started so high.July 14, 2019 at 11:29 pm #1202975285

Did I mix this up with the Handmaid’s tale not getting a 2nd directing submission nominated? I know there was some big contender last year that submitted twice in either directing or maybe writing that only managed to get one of its submissions nominated.July 14, 2019 at 11:50 pm #1202975301
Both The Handmaid’s Tale (Mike Barker) and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Scott Ellis) had a second director on the ballot who was snubbed.July 15, 2019 at 12:04 am #1202975309
Okay, so Maisel did miss one, it just wasn’t Daniel Palladino. Why you trying to confuse me?July 15, 2019 at 7:33 am #1202975646
Let’s look at Lead Actress
Last Years Nominees:
- Rachel Brosnahan WINNER
- Lily Tomlin
- Allison Janney
- Issa Rae
- Tracee Ellis Ross
- Pamela Adlon
Issa Rae and Tracee Ellis Ross are defo not happening, Dreyfus is taking one of them places, Lyonne is most likely taking one of their places. Either Tomlin or Janney will miss (Waller Bridge will take space), that leaves 6 nominees, bearing in mind they will probably be 7 leaving the last spot between Applegate, Brie, Bell and Kemper.
