I’m also thinking The Crown could pull of a win. Casting, Directing, Guest Actor, Supporting Actress and Possibly Lead Actress.
6th Place WGA 2021

I’d love to predict Idris Elba in Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Luther, a role for which he has previously been nominated every single time he has been eligible (4 times) in the Limited Series category.
However, as great as he, the series and the role are, he probably doesn’t stand a chance in Drama category. It would be cool to see him pop up and shake up the race though!April 15, 2020 at 12:21 pm #1203428535
Weird move on Bateman’s end, especially with how well received this season of Ozark is.
Series – Succession (RU: Ozark)
Lead Actor – Brian Cox (RU: Jason Bateman)
Lead Actress – Laura Linney (RU: Jennifer Aniston)
Supporting Actor – Tom Pelphrey (RU: Billy Crudup)
Supporting Actress – HBC (RU: Julia Garner)
Directing – The Crown (RU: Ozark)
Writing – Succession (not necessary)
I still feel like Garner could easily repeat, especially if McTeer isn’t nominated. HBC feels like such a soft front runner to me.April 15, 2020 at 12:29 pm #1203428557
Personally I think both Sakharov and Bateman will be nominated, and the latter’s episodes on The Outsider are both worthy of recognition. There are a multitude of factors that go into submission decisions. I definitely think this strengthens The Crown though. This series race rests on how much support Succession can muster (particularly from actors), which we won’t know until the nominations announcement.
For Your Consideration:
Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)April 15, 2020 at 12:35 pm #1203428568
With Westworld unfortunately off the table, I’m officially rooting for Succession in the major 3 categories (Drama, Writing, Directing).
I wonder what will go wrong this timeApril 15, 2020 at 12:48 pm #1203428581
It feels so strange for Bateman to submit for the worse of his two shows, especially when he probably would have won again for Ozark, and now he may miss entirely. Anyways directing just got a lot more interesting.April 15, 2020 at 12:51 pm #1203428583
Ozark can still win directing if and only if Bateman is not nominated for The Outsider. If he is, that’s over.
Otherwise, this sounds ludicrous, besides Succession which feels like the frontrunner now I think the Duffers have a real chance at the win if they are nominated. Looking back at the past few years, the director’s branch consistently gives its wins to either:
a) lesser-known directors from shows that sweep directing, writing, and series (Fleabag, Chernobyl, Handmaids)
b) Either straight up celebrities or well known autuers who are seen as more or less the “creators” or driving force behind their series (Amy Sherman Palladino, Jason Bateman, Jill Soloway, Cary Joji Fukanga). Stephen Daldry isn’t Peter Morgan but he’s also a triple academy award nominee.
Despite being a prolific TV director, Benjamin Caron doesn’t really fit that mold at all. That’s why I’m betting on Mylod because Succession is the most likely to take all three. On the other hand, the Duffers fit the latter description pretty well, and they have the episode, so it could work out in their favor in a frontrunner-less year.April 15, 2020 at 1:35 pm #1203428635
With Bateman not submitting for Ozark, I think The Crown might be a front runner now for Directing but not by much. Really interesting race.April 15, 2020 at 1:45 pm #1203428644
Or Succession sweeps and takes writing and directing.April 15, 2020 at 2:05 pm #1203428661
I like that idea!April 15, 2020 at 2:05 pm #1203428663
You all acting like Bateman is the ace in the deck in directing and the entire balance depends on him.
Last year was merely an anomalyApril 15, 2020 at 2:24 pm #1203428683
I feel like people make claims like this because it fits their narrative. It’s such an easy cop out just so you can dismiss Ozark’s strength or Bateman’s popularity.
It’s not wrong to think Bateman could repeat if he were to be nominated for Ozark, considering the increase in quality from season 2 to 3 and the fact that he won last year.
