    Trying my winners predictions, just to see how it will age.

    Limited Series – Escape at Dannemora
    Actor – Mahershala Ali
    Actress
    – Patricia Arquette
    Supporting Actor
    – Paul Dano
    Supporting Actress – Patricia Clarkson

    I don’t think Ali and Arquette can be dethroned. Clarkson can win as a way of rewarding the show and supporting actor is a random pick, the category is open. I could see Dano winning if they truly embrace the show. Big limited series usually sweep.

    A week ago, I would argue that Fosse/Verdon has the potential to become a strong player, but it doesn’t seem very likely now. It can still surprise, but it will be really hard to win one of the lead categories. I could see a scenario in which Williams wins only because Arquette wins in supporting.

    I don’t understand why Kathy Bates is so high in the prediction center. The only person who should be nominated from AHS is Frances Conroy (and Jessica Lange, if she was eligible–which still doesn’t make sense why she isn’t, but alas). Bates did nothing noteworthy this year (even Joan Collins would be more worthy than Bates, but she doesn’t really deserve a nomination either).

    Unfortunately, Conroy’s name wasn’t present at the time the predictions center opened, and Bates along with Field is one of those inflations we see (The Looming Tower actors last year). Bates has lost her namecheck status for AHS and did not do anything worthy this season. What I have realized this year is that so many star vehicle projects are turning out to be dissapointing. Emma Stone is an incredible actress, yet her talent is criminally wasted in Maniac. Sharp Objects has also failed to deliver material for Amy Adams which Big Little Lies yielded to Kidman. Therefore, I expect to see projects like The Haunting of Hill House sneaking in, those voters will watch and enjoy.

    Disagree with you on “Sharp Objects” not delivering (I loved it), and I actually thought Sally Field was quite good on “Maniac” (memorable was the “Rev up the Miata” line). Though not as good as Clarkson, Perkins, Hill House ladies, Conroy, Lange.

    Is it just me but I think Cody Fern will be nominated this year. I think American Horror Story is such a show that always has visibility with the voters, and even from the first episode this season was all about his character. He was snubbed in the same category last year for a deserving performance which we know the voters has seen. He also appears in House of Cards‘ last season, another show which the voters will see. I wouldn’t disregard him as a viable contender.

    Supporting Actor is weirdly stacked this year, so I doubt it tbh.

    Emmys 2019 FYC: Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones"), Cicely Tyson ("HTGAWM"), Viola Davis ("HTGAWM"), Richard Madden ("Bodyguard"), "Bodyguard," "The Haunting of Hill House" & "Escape at Dannemora" in all categories

    Well, at least as of right now, it looks like Fern is going Lead: https://www.fxnetworks.com/fyc/ahs/cast

    Like Luca said, it’s very doubtful. If Wittrock got nominated over him (when it should’ve been the other way around), they won’t nom him for this (especially when imo the performance and writing for it was all over the place).

    Edit: just saw the post regarding the placement so disregard this since he’s got no chance in lead lol.

    I have just learned that he is placed as lead; I wrote the post in regards to his prospect in the supporting category. Obviously, he has lost his chance.

    Putting Fern in lead has just killed his chances. Category fraud is fraud, but it works, people! Also, are they not going to campaign Frances Conroy? Because that would be a massive mistake.

    I just now noticed that FX is also campaigning Evan Peters Lead. I mean he’s never had a chance, especially for this season, but lead really? He was basically cameo-ing the entire season. Who is making these placement decisions this season? And like Heptapod said, not campaigning Conroy is another what the hell decision.

    Yeah, Peters did NOTHING this season to justify a lead placement. I’d say that he’d be siphoning votes away from Fern, but no one would be voting for Peters in a lead category if they’d seen more than the first three episodes of Apocalypse. That FYC page had better be a work in progress, or else FX is messing up BAD.

    I’m inclined to believe that Evan Peters being listed as lead was a typo because all of the other FX shows grouped actors by category and Peters was after Bates (Supporting Actress). Also I could have sworn I read Peters listed as supporting earlier.

    The FX FYC site is often wrong this early on. Their Fargo placements especially around this time are always terrible (Ewan McGregor in supporting, Alison Tolman in lead, Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman in drama). Having said that, I would not go so far as to say that it is based on nothing and I appreciate that it specifies the pilot as Ryan Murphy’s submission for Pose directing, as well as that they are pushing It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia for choreography and music supervision. Only Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell are listed for Fosse/Verdon; is this because everyone else is ineligible? Funny that they have not decided what genre Mr Inbetween is.
