    It pains me to say this but why is Barry’s performance reminding me of Atlanta’s last year? :O

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

    I knew this would happen. Every year those dark comedies over perform in nominations but they barely win anything. That’s why I never considered Barry winning comedy series.

    I mean just cause a shitty win happens once in a while are we really going to complain about the voting system? Thanks to this new voting system we have winners like Claire Foy, Matthew Rhys, Thandie Newton. Not to mention previous winners like Rami Malek, Tatiana Maslany etc. And just last night Luke Kirby become one. I don’t think any of these names would win under the ranking system, and possibly not in the tape system.

    Each and every voting method had its flaws but this one is the closest to perfect.

    I hope you are right. As of now, I only have it winning Lead Actor because of the wasteland that category is. Except for Ted Danson none of the nominees makes sense as a winner.

    Love her!!! Her interview with GD from yesterday is very good, watch it!

    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.

    I know, it was a stupid error, but the point remains the same, what happened that year was far worst. And I don’t even need to change the example, Ellen Burstyn won for her brief and irrelevant performance in Political ANimals versus the iconic performance of Sarah Paulson in Asylum and that was on the type system. Those same forums were almost shut down from anger and frustration, but people forget very easily. I can give you more than 30 examples like that from recent years for the type system. It is not a matter of opinion, it is fact, so follow your own advice and deal with it.

    Ellen Burstyn winning for Political Animals was bad, but it was not a two-minute performance.

    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

    Yes, but much less worrisome than a writing snub. The cinematography nominees are determined by panels, so there is always the potential for a fluke snub with a screwy panel. The cinematography panels have also proved to be screwy in recent years with their nominations and snubs.

    I will take this time to remind us all that it was largely because of Barry that Atlanta under-performed last year. There are certainly similarities, but there is no chance that Barry gets blocked by Barry.

    They snubbed Game of Thrones and The Assassination of Gianni Versace last year, so I’m not particularly fazed by that snub as this branch has been weird lately.

    Lol. We all have our favorites. For what it is worth I’d rank Barry higher than Veep.

    Has there ever been a situation before where the two drama guest winners have come from the same show and the two comedy guest winners have also come from the same show?

    Not both pairs in the same year – 2019 was the first time since the current version of Guest Acting categories was created in 1989 (there were similar categories in the mid/late 1970s and mid 1980s, but the 1970s categories combined drama and comedy, and the 1980s ones combined men and women).

    Here are the “pairs” I could find
    Comedy:
    1990 – Murphy Brown (Jay Thomas, Colleen Dewhurst)
    1995 – Mad About You (Carl Reiner, Cyndi Lauper)
    1997 – Mad About You (Mel Brooks, Carol Burnett)
    2001 – Frasier (Derek Jacobi, Jean Smart)
    2009 – SNL (Justin Timberlake, Tina Fey)
    2017 – SNL (Dave Chappelle, Melissa McCarthy)
    2019 – The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Luke Kirby, Jane Lynch)

    Drama:
    1989 – Midnight Caller (Joe Spano, Kay Lenz)
    2000 – The Practice (James Whitmore, Beah Richards)
    2004 – The Practice (William Shatner, Sharon Stone)
    2019 – The Handmaid’s Tale (Bradley Whitford, Cherry Jones)

    And here I was thinking that An Emmy for Megan was trolling Emmy voters.

    I have to laugh at myself! Lmao. I was so lazy predicting creative arts, I didn’t even slot Jones in! I just had Rashad, Lange and van Houten (since I didn’t consider Jones was winning for her nothing performance, they truly don’t care for Tyson, and Cox was never happening).
