    Does Jodie Comer’s snub help or hurt Sandra Oh’s chances of winning? On one hand, there could definitely have been vote-splitting between the veteran and the breakout star and no one can convince me otherwise. On the other hand, Comer’s snub could indicate a lack of support for Killing Eve in general, but then again Drama Lead Actress was such a packed category. What do you think?

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    The positive or negative support to Killing Eve has nothing to do with Sandra´s performance imo,I don´t know how many but there are at least more than five females than won the emmy for best drama actress while the series they were starring on were snubbed so I think that Jodie Comer´s snub is definitely a benefit towards Sandra´s chances.

    Both Maslany and Davis won without their shows getting nominated. Also the show itself got a writing nomination which does show that there is support and that voters have seen the show. As far as Comer not getting in, it was an incredibly packed category and people could have just preferred her performance over Comer.

    Tyne Daly won lead Actress in 1988 for Cagney & Lacey after a sharp decline in nominations including being dropped from Drama Series.

    Sela Ward won Lead Actress in 2000 for Once & Again a show that was not nominated for Drama Series.

    Mariska Hargitay won Lead Actress in 2006 for Law & Order: SVU and that show was never nominated for Drama Series.

    Kyra Sedgwick won Lead Actress in 2010 for The Closer and that show was never nominated for Drama Series.

    Totally different system. Irrelevant.

    Comer getting would have surely hurt Oh because of potential vote-splitting so she dodged a bullet there. I do think if Killing Eve explodes in buzz and acclaim next year, she will get in.

    Also Oh has the narrative of being the first Asian American Emmy winner in this category that more than makes up for any lack of passion, IMO.

    BTW can someone tell me if any Asian American ever won ANY acting category at the Emmys? I’m not being able to recall any.

    No, all of the headlines last year noted Riz Ahmed as the first Asian man and cited Archie Panjabi as the first Asian and neither of them are American.

    I hope THT becomes a record-breaking show this year:

    Most nominations for a series without a win in a single year

    Currently held by Mad Men – 17

    Mad Men does not deserve that record, it should have won more post season 4. The Handmaid’s Tale doesn’t either, but for completely different reasons (as in it shouldn’t have enough nominations to be able to break that record in the first place).

    You’re thinking Westworld Season 2. I am currently predicting a complete shutout for that show, with it losing all 21 of its Emmy nominations, thus beating Mad Men Season 5’s record.

    Neither is Oh unless by American we’re just referring to North America.

    That’s a sad stat really. I mean we can only think of two Asians who have ever won any Acting Emmys in their 70-year-history? Crazy.

    If Oh’s people are smart, they’d cultivate this narrative and push it with all they’ve got.
