    I genuinely feel bad for Sandra Oh she probably thought she was winning last year and now she might not even get nominated.

    Because they lost the Emmy to people who either weren’t eligible in the SAG cycle, whose shows aired during the Spring or weren’t nominated at SAG.

    Since 2015

    • Davis won her 2nd SAG, lost to Maslaney (show aired in April 2016))
    • Foy won 1st Sag, lost to Moss (aired April 2017)
    • Oh won SAG for KE S1, lost to Comer (not nominated at SAG & won for S2 which aired April 2019)

    • Spacey won 2nd SAG, lost to Malek (Spacey was Emmy nominated for a different season while Malek had S2 air during Emmy voting)
    • Bateman won SAG, lost Porter (not nominated)

    A few weeks back, the Hugo Awards, the most coveted award in science fiction or fantasy media revealed its nominees for Best Dramatic Presentation: Short Form for 2019-2020, and the drama nominees were:

    Doctor Who, Resolution
    The Expanse, Cibola Burn
    Watchmen, A God Walks into Abar and This Extraordinary Being
    The Mandalorian, Redemption

    Do any of these have an outside shot at a drama writing or directing Emmy nom, IYO?

    Watchmen, A God Walks into Abar and This Extraordinary Being

    Not drama but this is winning the limited categories.

    The rest, well….

    It’s a shame. But really, she plays the less showy character on a series that changes showrunners every season. Unless they can get that creative vision under control, I think she’s gonna have to wait for the next series for a true shot at her deserved honor.

    On a very personal note, I will add that Aniston is a mediocre dramatic actress, I am sure that if it was not for her SAG, she would be struggling for the nomination and in a perfect world, she would not get it.

    Yeah… I like her as a person and really, really tried to like her performances all season long. Those silent looks worked well and conveyed quite a bit. But anytime she had to rant-ologue, whether in the boardroom or her daughter’s dorm or in the studio, I was taken out. And to be fair, a lot of that falls on the writing and directing too.

    No, though I highly recommend The Expanse. If there were a category for sci-fi writing, that show would win.

    No, but Doctor Who should already have an Emmy for Drama Writing and would be a very deserving nominee this year for either The Timeless Children or Fugitive of the Judoon (but not for the episode Resolution which I though was laughable). Not that the show has a chance or anything though.

    This thread is going to be Foy vs Moss and Waller-Bridge vs Brosnahan vs Louis-Dreyfus all over again isn’t it?

    Kevin Spacey is the reason why I do not have faith in Jennifer Aniston at all.
    Exactly, if they had the audacity to vote for someone who was not even nominated at SAG, this shows us that Aniston’s win should be taken with a grain of salt.

    Lol how on earth are Kevin Spacey and Jennifer Aniston comparable?

    So because I say SAG is populist, it means that they have to reward the actors starring in the most popular shows? You really lack comprehensive skills and by the looks of it, you also lack argumentative skills. Claire Foy is a more popular name than MBB as she was THE FACE of THE CROWN. We often say that the TV academy loves showy performances, do they always necessarily reward them? Please, learn to read and think twice before you post, it is like you write everything that comes in your head when you are typing, these amalgams are not good to look at.

    Clearly not

    Kevin Spacey is/was a huge star (industry veteran) who gave an acclaimed dramatic TV performance that won him SAG and subsequently was labeled frontrunner until he loses the Emmy, Aniston is a huge star (industry veteran) giving acclaimed dramatic TV performance that earned her a SAG and then positioned her as the frontrunner but just like Spacey, she’s going to lose the Emmy. It is not a perfect comparison but those traits are quite similar. Unlike yours…

    Well you know what? Viola Davis is a huge star (industry veteran) who gave an acclaimed dramatic TV performance that won her SAG and subsequently was labeled frontrunner and won the Emmy. You can’t say for certain that Aniston is going to lose the Emmy. She COULD lose the Emmy but you have no evidence that she has NO CHANCE (unless you are a mystic from the future but as you’ve said above you have bias against her for not enjoying her performance).

    An amalgam of nonsensical ideas.

    Wow are you Bill Whadams the former frontman of Animotion? You seem to both like obsessions…

    In case you did not know I was obviously talking about their popularity in the industry, not on Instagram.

    Claire Foy :

    Film roles during The Crown – Breathe, Unsane
    Non Crown related accolades received during The Crown’s series 1 and 2 run – None

    Millie Bobby Brown :

    Film roles during Stranger Things’s run – Godzilla : King of Monsters, Godzilla vs. Kong, Enola Holmes (actress and producer)
    Non ST related accolades received during Stranger Things’s run – Time 100 list of influential people

    I do agree Claire Foy is the more prestigious (and FAR BETTER) actress and was known in the UK for roles before The Crown but she has only become a bigger name since The Crown, achieving her Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations for First Man, roles in The Girl in the Spider’s Web, the play Lungs and soon in Louis Wain. However during her run in Stranger Things, Brown (pre the wrap up of Foy’s awards run) was the bigger name.

    Saying Foy was a more recognised name than Brown during their season 1-2 awards runs is like saying Jodie Comer before her Emmy win was a more recognisable name than Maisie Williams or Sophie Turner.

    Why are Menzies and O’Connor not higher in the prediction center? Some people assume they’re going to check off everyone from Succession and Ozark because they’re top contenders so why would they not do the same for the cast of The Crown that actually just won SAG ensemble?

    I think that Menzies is not win competitive, maybe people do not bother to put him high in their predictions but they still have him 4-6. As for the latter, he might serve David Harbour (2017) or Justin Hartley (2018).

    Prediction odds are ranked by amount of editor, user and expert picks and not by ranking of likelihood to win.

    I have Menzies and O’Connor as 7th due to screen time.

    Menzies doesn’t really do much to be lead. It’s been I while since I watched season 3, but the only episode I remember him having something to do was Moondust and I know it is well written, but it bored me to death, to be honest. That’s why I have Porter ahead of him.

    O’connor is in less than half the season and I think that’s gonna hurt him, since it’s a crowded category, even though he has the performance and deserves the nomination. I had him for a while, but after watching both seasons of Succession for probably the third time in the quarentine, had to go with Macfadyen. Everyone is great and I hope they get checked across the board now that it is the frontrunner, but the whole trajectory of the caracter, how bothered he was with the marital situation and showing that in his eyes in every scene, culminating with that one at the beach was just amazing. Culkin is great and I want to find him a slot, but I really don’t get how he is 3th and Macfadyen only 7th.

    Menzies also had a big showcase with Bubbikins.
