    Hmm ok. I think I kind of see where you’re coming from. I don’t know if I necessarily agree but fair argument. I haven’t seen The Great yet – is Fanning streets ahead best in show?

    For me, Fanning and Hoult are equally best in show. But Hoult has the louder performance and while Fanning is the title character, her fine-drawn performance shines because of the writing and words by McNamara. It takes a nuanced actress of her age to really bring it compared to the other Emmy-nominated young actresses previously mentioned and Fanning portrays the role effortlessly.

    Sex Education has audience that might recognize how excellent it is.

    Netflix really needs to be doing more with Sex Education, it has all the potential but it’s the type of show where they need to actively push it to let voters know it’s okay to vote for it (similar to Dark Knight, Fury Road, Get Out & Black Panther at the Oscars).

    It’s the rare commercial (S1 watched by 40 million accounts) & critically (82 on Metacritic) hit and is on the bubble for above-the-line categories (writing & sup. actress) without them doing anything.

    It’s currently untested in comedy & majority of they’re other big players (outside of Dead to Me) are either terribly received (BlackAF, Space Force), have no buzz/lost buzz (Kominsky, Glow) or both (The Politician – but that’s a question mark until S2 drops next week).

    Netflix has nothing to lose and everything to gain with Sex Education. The nominations for the TV BAFTAs come out in the next week so hopefully that will be in incentive for them.

    Found an FYC site that might be even more beautiful than Amazon’s: Viacom CBS. It covers everything from CBS to Pop TV to Showtime. Lots of info about episode submissions and big pull quotes on every show if anyone wants to have a look.

    The big takeaway so far though is that Pop is giving the Schitt’s Creek retrospective “Best Wishes, Warmest Regards” its own campaign.

    I wonder if The End of the F***ing World can score a writing nomination after its BAFTA performance.

    No. It more or less had the same BAFTA performance as series 1 did.

    FYC Emmys : Jodie Comer ("Killing Eve"), Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials"), Russell Tovery ("Years and Years"), Helena Bonham Carter ("The Crown") & The Crown, His Dark Materials, Years and Years, Succession and The Affair in all categories. The Politician : Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bette Midler and Judith Light.

    Netflix has added FYC videos for The Politician that focuses on Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Lange. Even though, it is no longer present in above section of their website, they must be aware that it has potential as they are added after the show has been replaced with Space Force. I have checked and many of their contenders don’t have these FYC videos, only their priorities.

    Maybe! Hopefully we get a trailer soon. I guess if The Politician season 2 explodes Midler, Light and Platt are all definitely in along with maybe Series.

    I think best case scenario for The Politician is that it gets mostly positive reviews this time around. We shouldn’t fool ourselves that just because the critics really liked “Vienna” that the next season is going to be right up their alley.

    Yes I agree. That’s how I’d define it “exploding”

    Here’s what’s probably a crazy question:

    There is what I assume is a new rule that says that an actor cannot enter for two different series for the same character. I asked the Academy, and whoever responded told me that the rule does include a situation where someone performs as an on-screen character on one show and a voiceover on another.

    The question is, does Tracee Ellis Ross enter in Comedy Lead Actress for black’ish, or in Character Voiceover for mixed-ish? I admit that the “obvious” choice is for black’ish, but what are the chances that she actually gets nominated this year – and take into account that one of the reasons the voiceover category exists at all is so it could be a “consolation prize” for The Simpsons not being allowed to enter Comedy Series in its earliest seasons?

    Is there any actual question here?

    Yes. Since she can’t enter both, which one does she actually enter?

    I have almost no doubt she goes for the category that has brought her three nominations so far and would get her an insane amount of publicity and a featured spot with her face and name plastered on a screen watched by millions of people.

    Sure, she could win the voice-over category, but a nomination at the main ceremony will get her career miles and miles further than a win in a category that frankly nobody cares about.

    Why can’t she enter both tho? Is it because it’s the same character?

    Yes. This appears to be a new rule.
