    I am predicting Marisa Tomei LOL. One (?) week ago I didn’t even know what people on here were talking about when they referred to her, but now I’m predicting it. Honestly, The Hot Zone looks atrocious (as of Margulies) and Connie Britton gives a passable performance in Dirty John, so I’ve removed them both, keeping Emma Stone though still in. I feel like this was a huge TV special (hosted by Kimmel and Lear) with big film and tv stars that won’t go unnoticed by the Academy just like Jesus Christ Superstar and they might go overboard with it. I’m also considering predicting Marla Gibbs in supporting actress, that category is literally empty af.

    I had her last week but removed her for Niecy Nash, but you convinced me to add her again. I’ve removed Ruth Wilson. I’m not really sure why I had her in the first place.

    Hopefully I won’t be wrong for the sake of both of us lol.

    Just passing by this thread to say that Clooney & Chandler have no reason being anywhere near a nomination considering all these other deserving actors also contending. Name-check needs to end.

    Why so less confidence in Dannemora?

    Buzzier competition with better reviews, mostly. Plus a bit of “it’s on Showtime”.

    Dannemora premiered forever ago, and I don’t really recall it making much of a cultural splash the way that The Act and Chernobyl have. It isn’t telling an important story the way When They See Us and Chernobyl do. It isn’t an HBO murder mystery from the “Big Little Lies” guy, like Sharp Objects is, or a splashy showbiz drama from FX, backed by Lin Manuel Miranda, like Fosse/Verdon is.

    I can see Arquette pulling a Regina King, maybe, but ultimately I think Dannemora is gonna be snubbed.

    (And yes, I know Fosse/Verdon didn’t get stellar reviews either, but you know what it does have? A network that can get nominated for more than Lead Actor in a Comedy Series)

    Showtime is not as tested in Limited as FX but they did manage to get Patrick Melrose nominated despite its horrendous ratings. I am actually quite intrigued to see how FX will fare once we take Murphy/anthology aspect out of the equation.

    Dannemora could get snubbed but Sharp Objects being nominated over it would further establish HBO’s cloud within the TV Academy after seeing how both have performed at the guilds on equal footing.

    Escape at Dannemora is not getting snubbed, and neither is Sharp Objects IMO. Both of them did well at the precursors – Dannemora won much more than Sharp Objects – and they both hit the zeitgeist (one more than the other) when they came out. Plus, they’ve at least had time to build up some momentum, whereas as these late-breakers have to rely on current buzz, which I only see helping Chernobyl and When They See Us.

    Last year, the Limited Series category must have been surprising to many users:

    1. Assassination of Gianni Versace – 2031

    2. Twin Peaks – 1849

    3. Godless – 1572

    4. The Looming Tower – 1524

    5. Howards End – 1019

    6. Top of the Lake: China Girl – 607

    7. The Sinner – 328

    8. American Vandal – 319

    9. American Horror Story: Cult – 196

    10. Patrick Melrose – 213

    Of the 10 most voted by the users, only Versace, Godless and Patrick Melrose were nominated. The Alienist was predicted by only 127 users, and Genius Picasso by 138 users.

    But I doubt that such a surprise will be repeated that year.

    If the academy is smart, they’ll give her lead and Arquette supporting.

    In my mind its a three way race between Her, Adams, and Arquette. Lot of people are counting adams out, but I feel like she still has a chance. I haven’t decided who I think is gonna win yet.

    When They See Us has been the most watched series on Netflix US everyday since its premiere. It has the popularity to rival Chernobyl.

    Does anybody else think Hill House could pull a Twin Peaks and get nominated in Direction and Writing, but nothing else?

    Ugh. I took The Act out of my fifth spot for Hill House. That’s 70% bias and 30% because they submitted perfectly and could get into writing and directing.
