    BCS has only missed writing once, for its second season – not sure why it is suddenly not a player in that category.

    Did someone say that it is not?

    if they only submit a single episode

    That will never happen.

    We’ll see what happens. I have a hard time predicting The Morning Show because I feel like it was very much just an “okay” show with a lot of star power. It has promise and it did get better as it went on in the season, but when you stack it up against so many other returning favorites, it’s hard to consider voters going for it (at least this year). Will there be enough passion behind it?

    I get that Apple+ will put all of its money behind a campaign, but voters might not want to reward the brand new streaming service in its first year (if they don’t think it’s deserved).

    Shows like This Is Us, Westworld and Stranger Things have their proven and passionate fanbases amongst the voters. So I’m torn for now. I get that The Morning Show is a big deal though… but I could see it just barely missing out on Drama Series while getting a lot of its actors nominated still.

    @thedemonhog

    I feel like I’ve seen it consistently left out of writing predictions so far.

    Then again, strong chance my brain is slowly melting from sheltering in place so who really knows.

    My Emmy campaign for Jack Falahee and Aja Naomi King starts NOW after last night’s HTGAWM episode. I’m obviously kidding (as there not making it of course), but they were dynamite and heartwarming. I love them.

    It is a pity too that Liza Weil was never nominated for HTGAWM, because she deserved it so much.

    Emmys FYC: Freddie Highmore in Best Drama Actor for "The Good Doctor", Jane Levy in Best Comedy Actress for "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist", "What We Do in the Shadows" and "After Life" in Best Comedy Series, "Ozark" and "Better Call Saul" in all categories.

    To be fair, Handmaid’s Tale benefited from coming out at the start of the #METOO movement, so it benefited from the relevancy of its material much more than than The Morning Show will. Also, the first season of the Handmaid’s Tale was much more acclaimed, so it also had that going for it.

    This is false. Handmaid premiered in April 2017, got nominated July 2017 & swept the Emmys in September 2017.

    The first New Yorker article about Weinstein wasn’t published until October 5, 2017. The MeToo movement itself as it came to he wouldn’t official happen until October 16 2017 when Alyssa Milano tweeted about Tarana Burke’s cause.

    THT may have come just before the #METOO movement, but it was still timely due to the election that had just happened. It won because of quality and because it was incredibly relevant to the political moment.

    Okay…I just finished Ozark season 3! Wow, loved it. When it comes to Ozark, all of the supporting actress talk goes solely to Julia Garner, but Janet McTeer and Lisa Emery are fantastic as well. Any one of them could take the slot! I’d be surprised if Tom Pelphrey doesnt win, he was exceptional. Hated his character, but what a performance. Jason Bateman gives such a nuanced performance that can go overlooked amongst the bigger characters in the show, but he never once hits a false or unnatural note, he deserves his nomination. And as everyone has said, Laura Linney was incredible! Unreal actor.

    People have said Linney is the clear frontrunner and no other performances have matched what she has done with Wendy this year; I think Aniston, Kidman and Linney are all vying for the same trophy (obviously Reese is too but she’s winning for Limited).

    I agree because Liza had competitive submissions in seasons 2 and 4.

    Yes, that’s what I meant. The dates and subjects were close enough for me to mix them up.

    How I think the awards will be equally seperated

    • Drama Series, Succession
    • Lead Actor, Brian Cox (Succession)
    • Lead Actress, Laura Linney (Ozark)
    • Supporting Actor, Billy Crudup (The Morning Show)
    • Supporting Actress, Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown)
    • Drama Writing, Succession (This Is Not For Tears)
    • Drama Directing, Ozark (All In) or (War Time)

    Let me know your thoughts!

    My current predictions are pretty similar; except right now I’m guessing Jonathon Banks takes Supporting Actor and The Crown takes Directing.

    I feel like Linney could still lose to Aniston but if Pelphrey gets nominated he will end up winning he just has so much emotional range (that scene in the Taxi was basically a “hand me the Emmy” moment) and Billy Crudup doesn’t he’s just charismatic.

    I’ve been reading these forums for years and I’m a bit surprised at how lukewarm people here are re: Carell in The Morning Show. So much so I had to create an account just to join in on the discussion.

    This comment in particular:

    Outside of Carell, all the nominees were well received

    I’ve read many reviews of the show (the ones that covered the whole season, not just the first three episodes, most reviewers liked Carell’s performance. Other forums that I frequent share the same sentiment – Carell made a difficult/villainous character human and reluctantly sympathetic. GD is probably the only place where I’m seeing an overwhelming negative reaction to Carell’s performance on TMS. His SAG nom wasn’t so much not-well-received, but more a surprise due to how small his role actually is on the show.

    That said, the quality of the performance is neither here or there as far as predictions go. I think TMS will overperform and nab a Series nom. Aniston and Crudup are still buzzy after their respective SAG and CCA wins; I don’t want to say lock yet, but they’re close. With the quarantine measures, TMS seems like one of those shows that people will watch and relish in its melodrama whilst at home.

    Linney will be Aniston’s biggest competition, as Colman’s buzz wanes. It’s a stacked year for actresses though and that’s very exciting.

    FYC - Drama

    Ozark | Linney/Aniston | Cox | Garner/HBC | Pelphrey

    FYC - Comedy

    Schitt's Creek | O'Hara | Danson/Carell | Gilpin/Murphy | Levy/Malkovich

    ...also here to defend Steve Carell in The Morning Show until the day I die

    Maybe I’m reading about The Morning Show in more negative circles, and as a fan of Carell, I’m guessing he’s good on the show, but I recall hearing people saying that they didn’t like how the show was trying to paint a sympathetic picture of a sexual abuser.

    I think the show was trying to show sex abuse was in a grey area and not as black and white where Carell is the villain. However by the end of the show the show does made him into a bad guy
