    Really?! I’m sorry then. I thought someone said it had been snubbed there. Then that just made me even more sure of its writing nomination.

    Yup, it was nominated alongside Succession (winner), Watchmen, Mindhunter and The Crown in Best Drama. It was snubbed in episodic, but it was also snubbed there for its first season – its only nomination there is for season 2’s “First Blood” – so that category isn’t an indication for anything (Mr. Robot, Ray Donovan and The OA got in over THT, Watchmen and several more, just to lend credence to my argument).

    Which also means it doesn’t tell us that The Handmaid’s Tale is above Stranger Things in Directing LMAO.

    No one said it was.

    No one said it was.

    THT is actually very possible to get both Directing and Writing plus multiple acting nods than any of these. 

    I rest my case.

    FYC Emmys : THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL, SUCCESSION AND THE CROWN IN ALL CATEGORIES. Tony Shalhoub ("Maisel"), Cate Blanchett ("Mrs. America"), Matthew Macfadyen, Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook ("Succession"), Tracey Ullman ("Mrs. America") and Louis Gossett Jr. ("Watchmen")

    Possible doesn’t mean definite.

    Possible doesn’t mean definitive.

    And no one was saying anyone was saying it is definitive? I mean the fact that the user suggested The Handmaid’s Tale is more likely to get both writing and directing than something like Stranger Things (which could very well still have a lot of support from both branches) is false when arguably both are in the same position in Directing.

    I mean many of us have predicted four to six acting nominations for Succession and Watchmen for months and people make it sound like we’re saying it’s definitive when we’re just flaunting possibilities so I find this quite an ironic thing to say.

    I mean by that logic then we’re DEFINITELY underestimating both Succession and This is Us in acting considering that SAG chose to nominate GoT for Ensemble and not those two and now GoT’s slot has been freed up.

    We probably are tho, considering how it overperformed compared to our predictions last year and we have always assumed it’s harder for it to be nominated at SAG than win. 3 times nominee Ventimiglia returning is more likely than we think, imo.

    If Succession doesn’t score any acting nominations and Ozark is snubbed in writing again, would this mean The Crown is the winner? I find the first case highly unlikely to happen but how many acting nominations does Succession need in order to win series?

    Cox/Strong/Snook/Culkin is enough imo.

    Girl, you’re truly pressed. I absolutely despise The Boremaid’s Tale but I’m not blind. It got so many nods last year for 3 hanging episodes that had aired a year ago. It still repeated at SAG over two time winner TIU and still got in at WGA. Its freshness is over and that’s why stuff like PGA have dropped it, but it’s still prestigious and still popular. And above all, other than the 3 frontrunners, the category is definition of mess. If THT isn’t a sure bet idk what is. With that WGA nod, it’s in for Writing, and since Directing isn’t exactly stacked either, it’s very possible there as well, given that they’re pushing one episode for both categories (just like last year for an irrelevant episode) which is also the finale and the most praised of the season.

    I actually am a fan of The Handmaid’s Tale.

    We already know The Handmaid’s Tale benefitted last year from a weaker field and the fact its third season was airing at the same time as voting last year.

    Also they are not pushing one episode for both categories and even if they were how is Directing not stacked when there are literally two episodes of The Crown competing, two episodes of Ozark, two episodes of Succession, incumbent winner Jason Bateman for The Outsider and Lesli Linka Glatter competing for the final season of Homeland. That’s without even mentioning the possibility of Mindhunter or Stranger Things making it in.

    4. Both The Handmaid’s Tale and GoT s6 managed to win Drama Series in years with similar levels of competition with this number of acting nominations (with THT winning 3/4 of its nominations).

    Well, they’re kinda pushing two episodes in both writing and directing. In writing, the second title happens to be “Liars,” which was equally acclaimed. We’ll see. Vote-splitting shouldn’t be a factor though since voters have unlimited slots.

    I hope they won’t vote split (they were my two favourite episodes of this season of THT).

    This year it will be interesting to see what vote splits and what doesn’t. Whether it’s with Mrs. America in the Supporting Actress and Writing and Directing races or The Handmaid’s Tale in writing and directing.
