    I’m very hesitant to predict a major nomination for The Hot Zone. NatGeo has so far only benefited from weak competition. In 2017, Big Little Lies, Feud: Bette and Joan, The Night Of and Fargo were locks and the remaining spot was in the bubble. I don’t even want to talk about last year’s competition. This year star vehicle projects like Fosse/Verdon, Catch-22, and Maniac will always be a priority for the voters to watch over The Hot Zone, even though they might not be that great. It also seems wild to not include Netflix in the limited series lineup this year. They have three contenders which are hard to dismiss frankly, though I’m pissed that they campaigned The Haunting of Hill House as a drama for the guilds.

    Happy to see someone stepping up their campaign. In addition to the standard FYC events in Los Angeles and New York, The Hot Zone is also hosting academy-sanctioned screenings in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis and Portland. Only Emmy voters (and their plus-ones and press) are allowed to attend these events and the studios so rarely campaign in these cities that they can probably get a huge portion of the voters in those normally-neglected cities to come out. Ozark is the only other show to have an FYC event outside of Los Angeles or New York this season, past or scheduled, as it is doing a screening with panel in Atlanta next Sunday.

    So I have been talking up The Hot Zone for weeks and I see that I am one of only six people on the whole website who is predicting it for a nomination? More people have have total non-starters The ABC Murders, Miracle Workers, Ordeal by Innocence, The Spanish Princess and The Widow. Come on! Early reviews have actually been quite solid too; I had expected them to be merely decent.

    Here are the pages in the Hulu book for Catch-22 and Castle Rock. Note the focus on George Clooney over Kyle Chandler and Sissy Spacek over her co-stars. Also note that Catch-22 is making a mere three acting submissions.

    Despite only so-so reviews and muted buzz, I am struggling to remove Fosse/Verdon from my series lineup even though there are several other viable contenders that I am itching to add. It just seems to appeal so solidly to a specific portion of the Academy that I can see it making it in regardless of the other factors. Anyone else in this predicament?

    I, on the other hand, just removed it from my predictions, lol. The low viewership is what worries me. I think it will do fine with the acting branch because it’s baity, but I’m not sure on series yet. If both When They See Us and Catch-22 or either of them is a flop or a disappointment I guess F/V might kick True Detective out and take its spot.

    I dropped it from series a long time ago, finally putting in Catch-22, but I’m still at a constant debate with myself on whether or not I’ll add it back in. I’m also debating whether or not to take out Rockwell too (since Williams is the only one getting buzz) but I don’t really know who I would substitute him with.

    No matter how well it does here, You will see Catch 22 at the globes next year.

    For now, im keeping F-V But its at the bottom on my list in terms of winning.

    I actually have Escape at Dannemora as my front runner.

    Having seen the whole thing, I am baffled by the level of reviews for Catch-22 (preliminarily 76 on Metacritic). Having said that, it says something that none of its ten counted reviews is scored as 100.

    Agreed, I personally expect it to receive 3 noms (Series, Actor, Supporting Actor (Clooney) regardless of Emmys’ reception. (Unless more buzzier shows come in until then which I kinda doubt.)

    I think Fosse/ Verdon is easily out, with The Act being an audience hit, Chernobyl building up some momentum, and When They See Us probably being a hit too.

    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

    This is the most exciting Limited Series has been in a few years. You can make really strong cases for like 10 shows to be nominated.

    I’m more interested by character-driven series and colorful performances, so “Chernobyl” isn’t doing it for me yet. The fact that the only Academy Award-nominated performer didn’t even show up in the first episode was somewhat of a letdown. I’d rank “The Act,” “Dannemora,” “Sharp Objects,” and “Fosse/Verdon” ahead, but I think I’m in the minority here.

    I know what you mean. Joey King is rising and Chris says that Paula Malcomson has a big role in Deadwood, so is Emma Stone missing?

    If Paula Malcomson actually is a hit, that makes it easy for me. Arquette, Williams, Adams, Stone, King, and Malcomson. Connie Britton always felt like a placeholder.

    so is Emma Stone missing?

    The steep downward trajectory of Maniac has really been something else. This feels very possible but not ready to predict it.

    I’m actually losing confidence in King. Why do you think she’s rising? Am I missing something?
