    I know this is way too early (before 2019 noms have been announced!!!!). But seeming lots of shows are avoiding the May 31st cut off to not compete with Game of Thrones or Veep, and we know many high profile premiere dates, I was wondering what were all our 2020 predictions? I noticed it was taking up space in the 2019 predictions thread and I thought why not for fun?

    I really hope Westworld won’t be cut from Drama Series. That would be s shame.

    Also, I think a lot of people overestimating the Apple shows. Arebt they supposed to be these ‘family-friendly’ network type shows? At least that’s what I remember Tim Cook saying once

    Not predicting any THT supporting actresses seem either extremely biased or just a bit premature IMO. Especially when you have Garner and Brown ahead of them.

    Aunt Lydia will have her own episode in season 3, so hopefully Dowd returns.

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    You forgot Sarah Paulson for Ratched (and the show itself).

    It’s funny how last season we kept talking about how the 2019 season would be an absolute bloodbath (GOT, THT, BLL, The Crown) until basically every Drama competitor chickened out and now those categories feel particularly boring.

    Now, there’s no way around it: 2020 will be insane for the Drama categories, although I hope Limited doesn’t suck again like last year.

    Unless a new hit drama from HBO comes out between now and then that really hits it big with the public and with critics, or unless Succession somehow manages to REALLY hit a chord with voters and snag noms across the board (which I don’t believe it will), Westworld will most likely be returning. They LOVE those performers.

    I mentioned this in the other thread (sorry if you responded already there), but I think you’re overestimating Homeland and underestimating Ozark. You also should include Wright and Harris in the alts for Lead Drama Actor.

    Edit: And why are you so confident in Black-ish? I’d be surprised if Tracee Ellis Ross got nominated this year and I doubt she’d be able to come back after missing.

    I forgot about Wright and Harris but I think Westworld’s noms will drop at the Emmys after the drop in guild support. I put Ellis Ross in beause I wasn’t sure about the sixth Actress slot, I think Black-ish will stick around and if Kominsky, CYE and SV don’t air in time, it gets in. It also helps that Veep and UKS will have ended.

    I understand why you think I am overestimating Homeland, but I think Showtime will campaign hard for it due to it being its final season (it won’t win however). I slipped Ozark out of Drama Series and Actress because of how stacked it is, I don’t understand why some people are predicting Laura Linney for 2020 and instead saying Oh will get snubbed, especially seeming the latter is the favourite to win this year and has strong support at other ceremonies and guilds.

    I agree with you about Apple, leaving The Morning Show out is insane, I think Are You Sleeping will miss in favour of something like Stranger Things, Westworld or Homeland however.

    Not predicting any THT supporting actresses seem either extremely biased or just a bit premature IMO. Especially when you have Garner and Brown ahead of them.

    Aunt Lydia will have her own episode in season 3, so hopefully Dowd returns.

    I sined them out because of how stacked next year will be, I didn’t put Garner ahead of THT actresses. I think THT’s support at the Emmy’s is wading, this is evident from it disappearing in certain categories at other shows with only Moss and Strahovski returning as nominees. I think Dowd and Strahovski can return but it’s personally hard to see there being three in a year were Bonham Carter, Dern and Streep will have a more likely chance. I put Brown in because she is a previous nominee at SAG, GG and Emmy and I think we’re all underestimating ST. During awards season, Brown, Harbour and Wyder are the faces of the show and whilst I don’t Wyder has a chance next year, I will be shocked if Brown isn’t nominated if the Academy doesn’t want to be too BLL, Crown or THT centric.

    I love how these predictions are based on THT and Westworld continuing downward trajectories. We have no idea whether the quality of the shows will decrease or not. Big Little Lies could easily slump like the aforementioned, but that’s not being taken into account either. I can see Woodley and maybe even Dern missing if that happens. Harris could drop back into supporting (the category which he belonged in and could’ve even won last year) and be nominated along with Paul? There are way too many possibilities to start talking in absolutes.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Yeah.. I don’t understand all of the “Westworld might get one acting nomination” talk Season 2 wasn’t as good as Season 1 and yet it still got 3 lead acting nominations and won in supporting not to mention Paul joining the cast who actors love.

    Like what methaddiction said, I don’t understand why people think there’ll be a lack of support for Westworld come season 3. People were thinking the same thing about season 2, it almost went home empty handed for the main awards like the first season but it got Newton her deserved Emmy plus the Creatives. I would take the lack of guild support more seriously if it had actually gone home empty handed. When Paul comes in, I see him getting a nom with everyone else.

    Westworld is “done” and it only got this far because HBO nailed the timing of it for the Emmys.  We saw the same thing with the fifth season of House of Cards where the Emmy voters did not have time to watch enough of it before nominations for a backlash to take effect.  Note how the major guilds dropped Westworld even with Game of Thrones, The Crown and Stranger Things ineligible.

    It’s still airing in a way better time period than all of the other shows most likely Spring 2020. The Handmaid’s Tale, Stranger Things & Big Little Lies aren’t doing themselves any favors airing this early they aren’t going to have the same luck Game of Thrones had.
