    Please continue to talk about those categories here, I feel like we were quite surprised by some submissions.

    My predictions:

    Drama writing:
    START (The Americans)
    June (The Handmaid’s Tale)
    The Dragon and the Wolf (Game of Thrones)
    Mystery Man (The Crown)
    The Gate (Stranger Things)
    Super Bowl Sunday (This Is Us)

    Drama directing:
    Unwomen (The Handmaid’s Tale)
    The Dragon and the Wolf (Game of Thrones)
    The Spoils of War (Game of Thrones)
    Beyond the Wall (Game of Thrones)
    Paterfamilias (The Crown)
    The Gate (Stranger Things)

    I could see THT #2 sneak in or GOT #4. A surprise could be Ozark or Mindhunter. Westworld shot itself in the foot. So dumb.

    I would have a hard time understanding anyone who would nominate Barry’s “Chapter One” over its “Chapter Seven”.

    Someone who doesn’t have the choice to nominate “Chapter Seven” since it isn’t on the ballot.

    Are there any other viable contenders for comedy multi cam directing or is that pretty much sewn up?

    I could see all the GOT entries make it in potentially.

    I really want to predict The Deuce for writing and Mindhunter for directing but not sure that there’s room.

    Not Yet from ODAAT is the best chance.

    It could definitely be Mark Cendrowski for The Big Bang Theory.  He has gotten two DGA nominations for the show and he was presumably the one who spearheaded the rule change.  The only other that I would consider is Roseanne‘s Gail Mancuso, as she likely also played a part and won twice recently for Modern Family.

    “Chapter Seven” is in writing.

    I know it’s  been this way with seasons 5 and 6 and they won anyway, but wouldn’t having 2 or probably even 3 nominations in the Director category for Game of Throne will cause major splitting issue? I mean they easily win this category this year as well, but with the danger of last years favorite Handmaids Tale and David Fincher couldn’t they actually lose it for the split?

    The problem this time is that there is not as clear a choice among the Game of Thrones episodes.

    It could maybe overcome vote splitting with 2 noms, but I won’t predict it to win if it gets 3.
