    Indya Moore is on the Time 100 list and the only actor from her show or category.  Maybe I need to undo my swap to Adina Porter.

    I haven’t seen the finale yet, but I’ve practically finished Ozark S2 now. The problem with this show is that the episodes are sooooo long, which doesn’t give the actors good tapes (not that they matter), but so far I’m guessing:

    • Laura Linney: Episode 2.07 “One Way Our” (my personal second least favorite episode of the series, but she has a lot to do) or 2.09 “The Badger”
    • Julia Garner: Episode 2.02 “The Precious Blood of Jesus,” 2.05 “Game Day,” or 2.09 “The Badger”
    • Jason Bateman: he doesn’t wow me in a single episode, but at the same time he could practically submit anything.
    • Peter Mullan: 2.09 “The Badger” (not because he’s good in it, but it starts and ends with his character)
    • Janet McTeer: 2.05 “Game Day” (she’s probably not getting nominated, but if she is, then this is undoubtedly her submission)

    I don’t see anyone else standing a chance from the show tbh. Jason Bateman will probably undeservedly be nominated for directing 2.01 – I say undeservedly because there were much, much better episodes in the season. Overall, I didn’t even dislike the season, I fairly enjoyed it. 2.07 was downright terrible and annoying, but otherwise it was ok. Curious to see the finale, this post might change then. Maybe Bateman finally has a knockout submission.

    Color me shocked but I actually enjoyed the finale. They tied up loose ends and ended it on a somewhat poignant note (I guess). It could be Bateman’s submission because he actually shows emptions for once. It wouldn’t be a bad one for Garner either.

    Emmy voters must bend the knee to Lena Headey & Emilia Clarke for "Game of Thrones." It's their last chance to award them. Make it happen.

    Based on quality, I don’t get it either. It also has zero buzz, but Amazon seems to be campaigning this one.

    I actually predicted Julia to miss SAG because SAG is never up to date, it usually takes them while to recognize sth. Homecoming premiered a bit late. Of course that didn’t stop Claire Foy and John Lithgow from winning back in 2017, but still. SAG has its favorites, and Ozark is one of them, hence the shocking nod for Garner.

    Emmys really don’t want GoT to win Best Drama Series do they? First they chuck Apocalypse and Twilight Zone into Drama and now they chuck Sex Ed in as well? I mean they have a 1000/1 chance at beating GoT for Drama Series (like every other show this season). Could Anderson break into Drama Supporting Actress?

    Netflix is submitting Robin Wright as the only director for the final season of House of Cards. It’s also the series finale. Also only one episode for writing, very likely to be the finale, too.

    Cody Fern is in supporting.

    Huh? That really doesn’t make sense. If they didn’t want it to win Drama Series, then they wouldn’t have given them that honor last year.

    I mean what I am saying is, it looks very suspicious as to why this year they have moved a comedy series starring Gillian Anderson in a comic supporting role, and two anthology series into the Drama Race to the point that one can almost argue that it looks as if they don’t want it to win for its final season. I was not in any way suggesting that they didn’t ever want it to win! Maybe I phrased it a bit wrong and for always causing you to be so perplexed by my ambiguous writing, I do apologise @luca_giliberti

    I still don’t buy that at all though, it’s kind of far-fetched. And even if, nothing is taking down GOT.

    Sex Education in drama makes no sense at all

    I guess it’s more about filling the drama races with contenders. Honestly, these shows were never going to be a factor in any series category.

    The TV Academy had nothing to do with the “Sex Education” move into drama. That was strictly a choice by Netflix.

    It’s still a strange choice. The whole point of the characters in Sex Ed is for comical purposes (I mean in some cases it’s arguable but definitely in Anderson’s it is largely for comical reasons). Maybe they thought Anderson has a better chance in Drama Supporting Actress than Comedy S.Actress? Maybe they didn’t want to prevent UKS, RD or Glow from getting in?

    I still don’t buy that at all though, it’s kind of far-fetched. And even if, nothing is taking down GOT.

    I don’t think anyone is suggesting that. Apart from Robb Stark who probably wants to take revenge on Jon Snow and win Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

    We cannot actually tell from that if they are submitting one or two episodes for writing. It is a common misconception that a writing team can only submit one episode, when it is actually that each writer can only submit once, but they might appear on other submissions and that is fine. The best example is when both “Far Away Places” and “The Other Woman” were nominated from the fifth season of Mad Men. Both were credited to Semi Chellas and Matthew Weiner, so the submission paperwork for one episode would have been under one name and the submission paperwork for the other episode would have been under the other name. I am not a fan of this loophole personally. Interesting that they are not submitting any guests, when they normally submit whoever they can, like series regulars Mahershala Ali, Molly Parker and Paul Sparks. Maybe they have a tighter campaign budget? I like that the FYC booklet is understandably all in for Robin Wright, with six quotes about her and five pictures. Michael Kelly gets two quotes and one picture.

    And do we know that Amazon is campaigning this much harder than they campaigned The Man in the High Castle for its first season?

    I believe that last year was the first that Amazon sent out a screener for an individual show, with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, as opposed to bundling it with its others. There are other means of campaigning of course, but I consider the screener game the most valuable.

    I’m 3 episodes into Homecoming right now, and I’m kind of baffled by why people think this will be a contender in the Series race and the acting races other than Lead Actress and maybe Guest Actor. It didn’t perform well at the guilds. It doesn’t have a large viewership (it only has 11,614 ratings on IMDB). None of the actors other than Roberts, James, and White have much to do, and even Roberts and James don’t have particularly showy roles.

    Bobby Cannavale is showy after that. Succession only has 6168 ratings and Pose has 6964, so it is slim pickings because it is guaranteed that one of these three is getting in. It says something to me that Amazon seems to have chosen Homecoming as their drama push over Jack Ryan, which has 46 088 ratings, given that voters do not have screeners of the latter at this time. This is the network that swept the comedy genre last year and they have a new drama with good reviews starring American’s (Oscar-winning) sweetheart, so I am trying not to overthink this one. It is not the greatest, but it is a weak year for the field and with the episodes being so short, it is quite watchable. This is not The Looming Tower.

    I really hope that awful House of Cards season won’t be nominated for much. Will be a disgrace for all other nominees, and especially for better shows that got snubbed

    FYC: Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones") for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Miguel Sapochnik (“Game of Thrones”) for Outstanding Directing in a Drama Series
