They will be announced today. In my opinion, this is the best indicator for a major Emmy nomination. Jane the Virgin remains as the sole show which failed to score an Emmy nomination after being recognized by AFI.
My predictions (in no particular order):
1. Killing Eve
4. Better Call Saul
5. This Is Us
6. The Americans
8. Sharp Objects
9. The Good Place
10. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
Spoiler: The Haunting of Hill House (They might want to recognize Ryan Murphy for only one project)December 4, 2018 at 9:22 am #1202688993

3. The Americans
4. Better Call Saul
6. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
7. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
9. This Is Us
10. The Kominsky MethodDecember 4, 2018 at 11:11 am #1202689086
Killing Eve is surprisingly missing.
Succession and The Kominsky Method were definitely not the choices I was expecting, especially the latter. Along with Pose they have secured some Emmy nominations.
This Is Us should be glad that it’s the sole acclaimed broadcast network show because it is not the kind of a show that would be included for the third consecutive time.December 4, 2018 at 11:20 am #1202689101
I am very much surprised to see Succession and The Kominsky Method on the list.
Also, I guess the AFI was able to watch The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 2 in advance.December 4, 2018 at 11:26 am #1202689108
Wow, AFI really loves their FX shows. There’s four of them on their list: The Americans, The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Atlanta, and Pose.December 4, 2018 at 11:26 am #1202689110
Crock. Of. Shit. Succession? Kominsky? MAISEL????? Good Lord, did they drop the ball here.December 4, 2018 at 11:29 am #1202689114

This Is Us, really? Such an uninspired choice. Where’s Handmaid’s? Where’s Hill House? Where’s Homeland? Where’s Westworld?

This explains The Kominsky Method’s presence:December 4, 2018 at 11:48 am #1202689139
I was expecting and would have liked to have seen “The Haunting of Hill House” show up here, but I’m thrilled to see my second favorite drama of the year, “Succession,” make the list. I hope it’s coming for some Globes love this week too. Outside of those choices, this list seems pretty stale, honestly.December 4, 2018 at 12:10 pm #1202689160
Pretty nice seeing Succession there. And this year there were at least 10 better seasons than The Handmaid’s Tale, so don’t act surprised.
