    Phoebe Waller-Bridge is very likely to have both of her shows nominated for Best Comedy Series and Best Drama Series – Fleabag and Killing Eve, respectively. How many other creators have done this in the same year as she is about to?

    I commented this in the Drama Series Part 6 forum and one user let me know that David E Kelley did it once with The Practice and Ally McBeal.

    Anyone else? Would Waller-Bridge be the first woman to do this?

    On a related note, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay could be nominated in Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Variety Sketch Series this year for SuccessionDead to Me and Drunk History respectively.

    Carolyn Strauss could very well be on stage three times on Emmy night by winning Outstanding Drama Series for Game of Thrones, Outstanding Limited Series for Chernobyl and Outstanding Television Movie for Deadwood.

    Has this happened outside of David E. Kelley? Sorkin was probably close with the second (and final) season of Sports Night and the initial season of The West Wing, but he’s the only other creator I can think of.

    When did it become very likely for Waller-Bridge to get both her shows nominated?
