    ok it’s not like Nicholas Braun has nothing to do with Cousin Greg being a fan favorite. The character is brilliantly written but Braun brings him to life perfectly, with both great comedic delivery and also a real sense of anxiety and moral unease. I still prefer MacFayden, but it’s not like nominating Braun would be a joke, I think y’all might be taking the performance for granted.

    And so did Richard Dormer and Rory McCann. And no I did not say nominating him would be a “joke”. He’s fine but I don’t think it’s the performance they would go for, especially for a show that is virtually unproven in acting. All the other actors previously nominated and/ or won at Golden Globes or Critics Choice or anywhere else played roles with levity but also great gravitas. Braun is… I don’t wanna say “one- note”, but it… feels like he is.

    I love Succession, it’s probably my favorite show right now, but it’s Series- front runner status has people wilding, ngl.

    It is funnier than all the comedies I’ve seen this year. Tom’s realization that Mark is definitely a Nazi, Greg fretting over the possibility of an “attack child” entering their “safe room”, and Roman’s remarkably eloquent “GOBBLE DEE GO FUCK YOURSELF” all happened in one episode.

    Well, I’m definitely being convinced to watch it now. That sounds amazing even without context.

    The fact that Succession just managed to get a BAFTA writing nomination despite not being a British programme should convince people that it’s locked to win Writing (it even bumped Peter Morgan for The Crown!)

    Yes but considering BAFTA didn’t nominate him last year it shows that the show has had an uptick in support in Writing.

    Sure, but it really isn’t that strange at all. It was (arguably) locked for writing even before this BAFTA nom is all I was trying so say. This nom won’t change much.

    Also interesting is the fact that BAFTA (who went full on for Killing Eve last year) only gave it one nomination above the line. This might tell us about its chances at the Emmys this year.

    Isn’t the nomination for season 2?

    Well, we assume that its season 2 total at the Emmys had a lot to do with its buzz for season 1. So the reception of the second season might influence its performance for the third at the Emmys. Also, when did voting for BAFTA take place? If they voted while season 3 was airing, then the low count doesn’t surprise me in the slightest.

    (Jesse Armstrong is British)

    With a very extensive CV of British shows created/written by him – Peep Show, The Thick of It, Black Mirror, Fresh Meat…

    That BAFTA nomination was BIG. Jesse Armstrong is British but the show is so American, you would expect that it wouldn’t make it past the initial stage but it did.  The writers are fully behind it. Whether it be with panels (WGA Episodic and BAFTA) or a popular vote (Emmy and WGA Series). Even if it gets triple episodes nominated, something which will happen if HBO submits that many, I won’t hesitate to predict it to win. It’s so far ahead of its competition.

    Many of the episodes take place in England. The point is that we already knew Succession being such a force in writing.

    Oh yeah, Succession isn’t losing writing.

    They really should submit “Hunting” (Tony Roche), “Tern Haven” (Will Tracey) and “This Is Not For Tears” (Jesse Armstrong). I think they can get all three nominated and still win tbh.

    Only one of the episodes of this season takes place in England and I wasn’t necessarily talking only about the location.

    The point is that we already knew Succession being such a force in writing.

    That BAFTA Writing nomination was totally out of the blue for everyone. I had already mentioned how strong I saw Succession in writing but after this morning, it feels that nothing is stopping it from winning, not even potential vote-splitting with multiple episodes.
