    I am wondering if Catastrophe can manage to get back into writing. It seems to have a much higher profile this go around than for when it got the nomination in season one and is helped by good timing (and, yes, I know it missed for season 2). Main factor against it would probably be other “high brow, auteur” comedies like Fleabag and Russian Doll getting votes from the same demographic (plus multiple contenders from Veep, Barry and Maisel taking up the majority of the spots).

    Unless you’re a fan of the two favorites, it’s best to skip this year’s affair. It will be relentlessly predictable as the two will split their winnings and there’s absolutely nothing that can be done about it. Thanks to name-checking for a half decade (Veep, JLD) and mass osmosis last year (Maisel), the Emmys will show that there needs to be a competition show that will honor the real best comedies and dramas, irregardless of network. And not be biased against the broadcast networks.

    I’m going to assume you mean anything with Kristen Bell in it.

    Never assume, for if one does, one makes an ass out of u and me. A saying older than both of us put together.

    There needs to be balance between broadcast, cable and streaming services. There is a ginormous imbalance at present. Nothing more or less. It may get to the point, if it hasn’t already, that why should any of the Big Four broadcast the Emmys if the academy tosses out crumbs to them and the whole cake to streaming and cable?

    If broadcast shows were better, they’d get nominated. Other than Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Empire, and The Good Place, what are the huge snubs of network shows in recent years? I can’t think of any, because network shows (especially in drama) simply aren’t often at the level of cable and streaming shows. Saying that the Emmys have to award more broadcast shows so that the networks care about hosting the Emmys is ridiculous and you know it.

    So, in other words…you’re upset that I called you out lol. It’s not the Emmys’ fault that broadcast television rarely puts out slightly good shows. And they don’t have to do anything for those networks when for a millennium before HBO and whatnot, they were rewarding nothing but their shows. Also, with the millions of viewers the Emmys bring, they’re fine broadcasting.

    I think that each show should only submit once in writing and directing. There’s loads of smaller comedy shows which really deserve Writing noms such as

    • Fleabag
    • After Life
    • Catastrophe

    Directing Preditions:

    • The Big Bang Theory
    • Veep
    • The Marvelous Mrs Maisel
    • Barry
    • The Good Place
    • 2nd nom for one of the above

    The Good Place is not strong enough to get into Directing. It also faces extremely tough competition. Barry, Veep and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel can all have multiple episodes nominated. Veep has even gotten 3 nominations for its past two seasons. Glow could return as well. The Big Bang Theory is basically guaranteed a spot as well.

    This year, I think Superstore, Fresh off the Boat, and even Big Bang Theory deserve consideration, the latter being a valentine to its 13 years of longevity as one of the country’s longest running comedies. Drama, you’re perfectly correct. It’s This is Us and 15 dramas named mud.

    I think The Big Bang Theory is a lock for Directing. It got nominated last year and it is its final season

    Well, that, and it’s the only viable beneficiary of the proportionality rule.
