— Curious what others think about The Crown winning over Maisel in Costumes. I noticed a number of people predicting a win for Maisel. But The Crown has won every year its been nominated, so it doesn’t seem like an upset?
It was not an upset. Emmy voters have always appreciated and loved The Crown (and Downton Abbey). 3 consecutive Emmy wins for all 3 its seasons is no fluke. And all its Costume design winners are for different people, meaning there was no name checking happening here. They genuinely love The Crown.
Gold Derby members just didn’t want to predict a win for The Crown, since it is the show they are currently hating on. Wait until The Crown wins more Emmy’s throughout this weekend. Then you’ll see how deathly quiet it gets in these forums. 😂September 17, 2020 at 1:24 am #1203712063
I love how people were really trying with ”Schitt’s”. Up to two awards, one a sound award against a big budget sci-fi series from disney and an a HAIRstyling award against an episode that is, literally, called ”HAIR day” LOL Also, aside from Casting, I don’t expect Schitts to win anything, it’s a great series but a great craft series it ain’t. It may win costumes, but it won’t win makeup and editing.
I think Schitt’s is in danger of losing costumes to Unorthodox actually.
It could win Editing like Succession did but it will be key whatever happens there.

Well, that’s the big misnomer about editing, right? People assume that editing choices are exemplified in the cuts, and some projects exploit that to erratic effect. But the choice NOT to cut is just as important, if not moreso, depending on the performance.
Thank you! I don’t know why more people don’t get this. Editing is not just most cuts.September 17, 2020 at 1:33 am #1203712069
Lol at people being shocked at THT’s production design win. I told you it was going to happen, but no one wanted to hear it. If you’ve seen Household, you know exactly why it won. The deserving winner in that category.
The Handmaid’s Tale also deserves to win cinematography but it was robbed.
So it is on us for being surprised that the Emmys recognized quality for a show for which they extremely recently failed to recognize quality?September 17, 2020 at 1:44 am #1203712073
Forget about quality, I am more so referring to the fact that everyone here said the show is dead and is going to walk home with nothing. People have also said it’s in dead-last in almost all its categories, but I feel like it’s forgotten that it still snagged the drama series nom, it still got three acting noms, it still got casting, it still got tech noms. The TV academy clearly doesn’t hate it yet. Handmaid’s had won this category three years in a row, and Emmy voters are lazy. That’s why I was predicting it. It also happened to be the most deserving, but I don’t consider that anymore.
Also, there’s a difference between the nominations and the wins. Just because THT underperformed, doesn’t mean voters in individual categories weren’t going to acknowledge it once it was nominated.September 17, 2020 at 1:45 am #1203712075
That was quite eventful. I’ll start with the three categories I correctly predicted.
The Handmaid’s Tale taking Production Design and The Crown taking Costumes were a no-brainer. Both shows won these categories every time they were eligible. The Crown has previously won over Mrs. Maisel, so I guess I saw Hollywood as an alternative.
The big one I predicted correctly was Succession for Picture Editing. Why I was predicting it to overcome vote-splitting is because of two reasons. First, it’s the series front-runner. Secondly, the finale featured an astonishing work. Watch the scenes with the whole family sitting at the table on the yacht and how everyone reacts to what Cox is saying. It’s absolutely terrific how every reaction is so neatly caught in the frame.
But then, I didn’t think Watchmen could overcome vote-splitting, which probably means it can do the same in Directing.
Mrs. Maisel didn’t bomb last night. Despite losing Costumes to The Crown, it actually won its first Makeup award. Similarly, Schitt’s Creek didn’t lose anything significant.
Ozark was done even before this, but at least we all agree now. Maybe it can snatch Sound Mixing?
The Mandalorian got that Series nomination thanks to its crafts support, so maybe it’s a serious Drama contender?September 17, 2020 at 2:08 am #1203712086
Tonight will be interesting because I wasn’t expecting Ozark to lose Editing and I really thought there was a possibility of Maisel or The Crown get shut out which they weren’t.
Interestingly enough it’s Maisel’s first win in Makeup which makes me think the show is just moving around each category in wins and not necessarily repeating in each category.

Ozark missing definitely feels the most significant result, and Succession is surely taking Series.
Schitt’s not winning two awards it didn’t really have a shot at doesn’t feel as significant – Casting tonight will be more important.
Watchmen is sweeping.September 17, 2020 at 4:33 am #1203712197
The way Schitt’s Creek was a non-event.
I’m guessing you must be thinking The Morning Show and This is Us were non-events too as they lost the categories they were nominated in…

OK, no predictions center categories this night, but still an interesting evening of winners! As should have been expected, The Mandalorian and Watchmen nabbed a lot of the visual tech prizes, but it was also nice to see the wealth spread to many other shows as well!
