    Emmys, you better not mess up by not rewarding these queens tonight:


    I’ll stay disgusted and will never get over these losses because of what we got in return. We better treat them right and give Carice the win and nominate her for Instinct and Kristin for whatever project she has next to make it up to them.

    Thrilled to see so many awards for Chernobyl. The show (together with Dark Crystal) will remain my absolute fave from 2019.

    I’m hardy an expert when it comes to predictions, it’s always a mix of wishfull thinking and some predicting, but if I had to bet some really money on it, I would say comedy winners gave more questions than answers. But it’s good, it’s exciting. Russian Doll wins were nice addition to already crowded field of comedy contenders to win at least one award at the main ceremony.

    I wasn’t predicting Sandra Oh in Guest Comedy Actress (I wanted for KST to win), but part of me felt that this could show how strong her position is…so, maybe not shocked she didn’t win, but slightly surprised and and more than ever concerned about her Lead Drama Actress win.

    Cherry Jones was wowed by Cicely Tyson’s clip at the ceremony. OMG. I may not be happy with her win, but she’s a sweetheart!!

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

    I won’t predict it but Rachel Brosnahan upsetting both JLD and PWB seems very possible now.

    Cherry Jones is a beautiful person. Her being well-liked in the industry definitely contributed to her win but she still shouldn’t have won.

    It’ll sound ridiculous but I think Fleabag won casting because directing branch vote splitted between Barry and Maisel, and the rest of the people that also vote for casting went for the true deserving nominee: Fleabag. Now I’m not sure who’s winning directing, I’m certain Maisel is lethally vote-splitting with itself, so it’s Fleabag vs Barry‘s “ronny/lily”, but I just can’t picture Barry S2 winning only Actor for Hader like last year (minus Winkler) even though last year’s Atlanta/Maisel vibes are intense. But still “Teddy Perkins” was not directed by Glover so maybe that hurt it with “FUBU” being the ep that was directed by him, while with Barry this year it’s the opposite, so it might not be hurt after all, but in the end it probably will be regardless and Fleabag will sneak through.

    I am so confused. Barry is a show about an ensemble of actors and it got its entire cast nominated, including three first-time nominees this year. And directors love it because it won DGA. So with all of that in mind, how did it lose casting? I knew that Fleabag could win casting, but I thought that it would be part of a more decisive Creative Arts sweep. That it was not has me thinking that writing and directing could split. Fleabag is obviously stronger in writing, but it just won an award voted by directors. Barry is indeed giving off strong Atlanta vibes, but Barry has so much more steak-eater appeal, plus I much prefer “ronny/lily” to “Teddy Perkins”, plus it does not have a vote-splitting problem because the star and episode are the same vote. But a big reason why I have been predicting Barry all season is because I thought that Barry would be the apple in the bag of oranges with female-led Fleabag, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Russian Doll and Veep. That clearly did not happen in casting, so I guess that I should abandon it in directing? We do get random British winners in directing anyway (The Crown, The Night Manager), but maybe “ronny/lily” is just undeniable like all of those great winners that we got last year. And what do we make of the Springsteen on Broadway upset? Is that a point for steak-eaters or just general randomness?

    I told you that GoT was never going to win Cinematography and I was right. Besides all the success of GoT, it is obvious that Actors and Cinematographers dislike the show, they respect it enough to nominate it, but not to award it.

    I was also right that the love towards THT is far from done, 3 wins for 3 episodes, not bad at all. Jones win is bad, but not that much, you are all overreacting as always. The other three winners were great and very deserving, so they won’t change the voting system. And stop glorifying the tape system, wins like Jones happened multiple times there, for example the iconic 10 seconds win of Ellen Burstyn.

    Yeah Cherry Jones winning shows GoT will never be the acting branch’s first choice, except for Dinklage, no matter the final season or overdue narratives.

    If the Creative Arts showed anything it is that the Acting Branch has their favorites and are more inclined to vote for the same ticket than to spread the wealth. This is why for the first time this season I actually believe there might be a chance Brosnahan could win over JLD, though I’m still predicting JLD.

    As far as acting winners go, my predictions are

    Game of Thrones: Lead Actress, Supporting Actress (Headey), Supporting Actor (Dinklage).

    When They See Us: Lead Actor, Supporting Actress (Farmiga), Supporting Actor (Williams).

    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress (Borstein).

    Barry: Lead Actor

    Fosse/Verdon: Lead Actress

    Pose: Lead Actor

    Veep: Lead Actress

    I might be wrong in my pairings, I can see JLD bringing along Hale, Barry sweeping all its categories, Nash winning over Williams, Harington winning over Porter. But I don’t see a complete spread of wealth, which is why I’m mostly doubting my comedy predictions.

    Watch GOT shatter our expectations next week and win three acting awards. Honestly, every single year it’s the same thing: we think something is going to happen, and then the opposite happens. It’s rare that we’re all like “only Dinklage is winning,” and it’s giving me pause. But I have to stop myself from getting too excited because I could easily see the wins being Dinklage-Shaw-Bateman-Oh, which IMO would be one the worst lineups of winners in recent drama Emmy history. What a snooze that would be, especially after last year which threw a bunch of curveballs at us

    Seeing Emilia Clarke accepting the Award would be life itself… she is the sweetest

    Isn’t Barry’s cinematography snub also worrisome? Well it doesn’t exactly have the most showy cinematography but it could have gotten in in that line up

    Burstyn did NOT win the Emmy for “Mrs. Harris” for the second time. And people are damn well allowed to have the opinions they want to have about shitty wins like Jones’s, so deal.
