    Killing Eve is for sure done at the Emmys after this year. I’m not ready to kick THT out from Series just yet due to politics at the Emmys, but it’s definitely hanging on by a thread and Westworld, in my opinion, is ahead of it based on the trailer alone (since the former apparently can’t seem to evolve in its storytelling but the latter can). I’m also here for Newton to be the JLD of Drama SActress (minus the first season, of course).

    That’s if it does not have any television episodes that air within a certain time limit.

    You have way too much faith in Killing Eve and The Handmaid’s Tale IMO. Westworld and Ratched definitely seem stronger than either to me, and I could see good arguments for Truth Be Told, Watchmen, and even Ozark over them.

    If Killing Eve breaks through this year, I can see it hanging on to its series nomination, with THT, it just depends how this season goes (it is hanging on a lose thread and could lose it’s nomination to Watchmen, Westworld or Ozark). I don’t think Ozark is as strong as KE or THT, but we’ll just have to wait and see, the drop in guild support when The Crown and Stranger Things weren’t eligible for Westworld is noteworthy (however, I think it is a lock in S.Actress and S.Actor). In my opinion Ratched’s only buzz is for Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson (and as we have seen this year, Murphy had the buzz for Pose, but will it make it in Drama Series or Writing?) and I don’t think Apple will manage to successfully get its two flagship shows into contention in all major categories when it is relatively new (however I think the star factor for TMS will help and OS for TT), which is why I am predicting TMS to break into Comedy Series, Actress, Actor, S.Actress and S.Actor but only Actress for Truth Be Told .

    She gets a lot more to do in the second episode and based on preview for episode 4 she’s definitely got a lot more material to work with.

    The question is, will HBO fraud her into Lead (which would be totally undeserving, she deserves to win Supporting by a landslide) in order to place other actresses for the series into Supporting?

    As stacked as next year’s drama actress is, I think those leaving out Regina King are making a huge mistake!

    I think the only drama lock is The Crown (and thus Colman and Bonham-Carter) because it’s the easiest returning show to get right.

    We really don’t know how most of these new/returning shows are going to fare. I will say that I can see Killing Eve being dropped, and that The Handmaid’s Tale continues its downward trend, but that’s about it.

    I love Westworld but predicting it before THT doesn’t feel right. WW looks good from the trailer but that can’t be our only basis for predicting it. It was dropped from every major guild and S2 was very divisive. S3 could very well be the same. It didn’t even win much despite the absence of Game of Thrones and Stranger Things.

    Moreover, what I gathered from the early reviews was that THT S3 has similar problems as S2 but isn’t necessarily worse than the back half of S2. It isn’t going to be a top contender like it used to be but I still see it getting nominated.

    I think the problem is that The Handmaid’s Tale can’t seem to evolve in its storytelling, whereas Westworld has no problem doing so. People get tired when they get fed the same thing over and over again, such as having two seasons full of June’s one million “escapes” (to compare, KE is suffering from two [probably 3] seasons of cat-and-mouse). That being said, I still think it’s getting in.

    So This Is Us, Succession, & Pose have no chance in Series next year?

    I think Nancy Marchand is the better comparison. Lou Grant was on for 5 seasons and she won an Emmy for 4 out of the 5 seasons.

    Lupita Nyong'o will win the Best Actress Oscar for "Us."

    So This Is Us, Succession, & Pose have no chance in Series next year?

    We’ll have to see how This Is Us performs this year before looking at its chances for next year. It hasn’t been getting the same buzz and love that it did when it premiered, but it’s certainly been doing well enough to repeat if voters are comfortable enough to keep it around. If it can somehow get Moore or Hartley in this year, then I think that that’s a sign that it still has enough goodwill to repeat for season four, but if Brown and Ventimiglia are still the only two nominated (and honestly even if Watson makes it three), then I say that it’s on very thin ice. For Succession, unless it racks up MAJOR nods this year (I’m talking directing and writing and more than one acting), then I’d say yes, but at this point, I don’t think it’ll repeat. The voters don’t seem to want to nominate more than two HBO shows, and Big Little Lies and Westworld will be in line before Succession is. Unfortunately, I don’t think Pose stands a chance. Just getting nominated this year will be its success, and while Porter could definitely repeat, I don’t think that the series as a whole will survive against all the returning heavy hitters.

    Succession should be fine for a while, at least as the drama equivalent of Silicon Valley.

    I think everyone is underestimating Ratched and Sarah Paulson. I predict that to be huge and I can already see critics saying it’s “Sarah Paulson’s career best performance”. I could be very wrong tho.
