My bad I thought the Editing category would be the same as Writing where you don’t pick an episode but submit the whole series.
Only writers who write their whole limited series are eligible to submit their whole series. Chernobyl‘s editors rotated episodes. (But the editing category is also unlike writing in that it does not allow entire series to be submitted, even if the credits are the same across all episodes.)July 10, 2019 at 9:26 pm #1202970213
I think this is the year when we finally see a tie in the Limited Series category. Six or more nominees seem plausible to me.July 10, 2019 at 10:57 pm #1202970254
I guess I’m the only one confident in a True Detective surge during nominations.
And it won’t be a shocker.July 11, 2019 at 7:26 am #1202970622
It’s crazy how good the limited series categories (with emphasis on lead actress are this year, especially after a weak year last year.
After I watched “Sharp Objects” last summer (which I loved, and counted down every week to watch), I thought Adams and Clarkson were the frontrunners and nothing could top them.
Then I watched “Escape at Dannemora,” where Arquette’s transformational performance knocked me off my feet. The entire cast was outstanding.
Then Arquette gave an even better (in my opinion, I’m probably in the minority on that in these forums), a career-best performance in “The Act,” and Joey King went toe-to-toe with her wonderfully.
Then “Fosse/Verdon” premiered, and Williams as Gwen Verdon was so spectacular. She was Verdon, and so sympathetic in that role.
I think Arquette should win both lead actress and supporting actress, but I won’t be upset if she doesn’t win one or either of these, given how great her competition is.July 12, 2019 at 6:23 am #1202972070

She’s not getting nominated, but I don’t feel like we talked about her enough. Her portrayal of Olivia Crain was flawless. She’s such an amazing actress – I also loved her on Wayward Pines – I hope she gets her due very soon.July 12, 2019 at 1:19 pm #1202972759
I came to the series late, with all the hype from this site raising my expectations above the top shelf. Even with that, HoHH blew me away. It was marvelous. I really wish it had gotten more of an awards push. I’m still holding out hope for directing and/or writing, but I think if Netflix had campaigned it as a limited series all along and really pushed it, the series, Gugino, Jackson-Cohen, and take your pick for supporting actress (I’d go Pedretti) would all have gotten nominations. I hope Gugino works with Flanagan again soon.July 12, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1202972767
Hill House is honestly one of the best shows I have seen in my (short) life thus far. I went in with zero expectations, I barely even knew what the show is about, but my god was I stunned. I will never forget episodes 5 & 6.July 12, 2019 at 1:33 pm #1202972781
I hope we get some surprise nominations for HOHH. I hope the Academy recognizes it. I loved all the actors on the show but Victoria Pedretti in Episode 5 really stood out to me.July 12, 2019 at 1:37 pm #1202972788
HoHH deserves to be nominated and win, it was one of the best show in recent years.July 12, 2019 at 1:43 pm #1202972793
I’ve really been wanting to re-watch Hill House because it’s so good and I need more time with those performances. What’s stopping me is the million other shows I haven’t watched for the first time yet, and it probably wouldn’t be nearly as good if I go in knowing what happens.
Literally all of the adult cast is worthy of a nomination.July 12, 2019 at 1:50 pm #1202972801
I am LOVING all this The Haunting of Hill House love! It should just win everything.July 12, 2019 at 1:53 pm #1202972803
Hill House – one of the most overpraised show on these forums. Stylish it is – rest is meh. Am I the only one who didn’t think the show made a lot of sense? Where was the horror? Eventually there was none. Hope it will be deservedly shut out come nominations day.July 12, 2019 at 2:16 pm #1202972851
It wasn’t supposed to give u jump scares or anything necessarily. I think it was a very well written story. And also I’m a sucker for family dramas, plus fantasy, so it depends on everyone’s taste. I think it was one of the best shows of the year, but it’s definitely expected to not appeal to other people, it’s a particular combination of genres.
I’d love to see it get the Twin Peaks treatment: directing + writing noms. Acting isn’t happening cuz they’re cancelling each other out and don’t think Gugino has the strength to pull off a nom, and I doubt it’ll have general support to make it into series, so I’ll be beyond happy to see it be this year’s TP.
