Josh O’Connor is not ahead of David Harbour and Jonathan Banks.June 1, 2020 at 4:43 am #1203511357
Also how is The Morning Show strong enough to get in Aniston & Witherspoon and Crudup & Duplass, but not SAG nominee Steve Carell? And if it has such strong support from actors, shouldn’t it be higher than eighth place for drama series?
Another prediction I’m concerned about that’s been tossed around here is Stranger Things in directing. Those of us who still have the show in the drama series lineup have in sixth or seventh place at best. I get that “The Battle of Starcourt” is a spectacular directorial showcase, but unfortunately that’s not how this branch works. If you’re not contending for a strong series contender, you better be a household name, and I’m not sure the Duffer Brothers have reached that level quite yet.
I’m also not feeling Cherry Jones for Handmaid’s this year. They’ve nominated her twice, rewarded her for this role, so they might just move on. I wouldn’t even be shocked if she took herself out of consideration for it as she’s done before for 24 after she won.

With regards to The Morning Show I am not sure about its series placing. I rank based on likelihood of a nomination and to be honest anything between 4th and 10th place are interchangeable.
I think Carell’s category is too competitive and considering his role was more of a Supporting one I think he could very well end up like Winona Ryder.
I was hesitant at placing Duplass in but I think he may have sadly had his chances boosted considering he is known for being a close friend and long time collaborator of Lynn Shelton.
Witherspoon is getting à la Ventimiglia.
Josh O’Connor is not ahead of David Harbour and Jonathan Banks.

Mark Duplass is getting a nomination because Lynn Shelton died?
Why are people treating Lynn Shelton, Marc Maron and now Mark Duplass like Tom Hanks died and now Rita Wilson has to get a pity nomination?
How big was Lynn Shelton that she’s boosting Emmy chances for everybody who worked or had a relationship with her?June 1, 2020 at 5:40 am #1203511387
Yeah, Mark Duplass getting in because of Lynn Shelton’s death is perhaps the most bizarre argument I’ve seen thus far. If someone said he was getting in because they think TMS will do incredibly well, I can get behind that, but not this.

Linney will certainly win , she has the performance, the buzz, and the name, Aniston is second but far behind, idk why some people predict Colman to win she isnt even worthy of an nomination all she has for her is the name but its not enoughJune 1, 2020 at 8:47 am #1203511671
I would not, under any circumstances, count Olivia Colman out. As frustrating as it would be to me for someone to win an Emmy just because they’re the most recent Oscar winner, it absolutely could happen.
The same goes for Aniston. I agree that she’s in a distant second place performance-wise, but all signs point to her incredible, incomparable likability.
We’re looking at three very different actors who are each talented and notable in their own rights, each driving their series’ stories in different ways. If this were pre-COVID, I’d be looking forward to the THR roundtable interview featuring them and Davis, Oh, Moss, etc.
That reminds me, I thought Gold Derby had recent interviews with some of these actors, but maybe I’m wrong.June 1, 2020 at 8:48 am #1203511677
weird because Harbour could easily be ahead of Banks
True, but I think Banks benefits from having his show come out so much more recently, and I think his performance was better received and has more hype than Harbour’s.
As someone who initially really wanted Harbour to win when Stranger Things’ third season came out, when I look back now, I think that there’s many other more deserving contenders, and that while his moments near the end of the season were fantastic, this was his weakest on the show. Meanwhile, with Banks, this is his strongest year since Better Call Saul’s first season.June 1, 2020 at 8:57 am #1203511705
The argument that Colman and Aniston are loved and are using that as a factor for why they could win literally applies to Linney just as much if not more which people seem to be forgetting.June 1, 2020 at 9:10 am #1203511729
I agree, people are totally forgetting that the TV Academy really likes Laura Linney. She’s won on a nomination more times than she’s lost (4/6). Not a good enough track record to call her a shoo-in for the win, but it proves that she’s just as well-liked as Colman or Aniston, if not more.June 1, 2020 at 9:27 am #1203511747

I’d live for a full sweep in the acting categories for Ozark. However, my bet is 2 wins (Linney and Pelhprey), with Cox and Bonhan Carter winning the other ones.
Guys who do you think it will win casting?
