    Allow me to be the first haha

    Really?! May I ask why?! I just find it intersting tbh. I thought the finale was a mess. But If you prefer it, good then. 😁

    With Directing I won’t make a final choice until I see who wins Casting. That’s my same thinking with Directing on the Comedy side (then again I can easily see a scenario where Ramy Youseff still wins Directing if any of InsecureMaisel or Schitt’s wins casting and/or Series).

    The finale is fantastic to me; a taut, bombastic depiction of the messy breakdown of a marriage. “Aberfan” is just a very well made biopic. It’s very well written and very entertaining but there’s nothing stylistically interesting or surprising about the way the story is told.

    I have it in front of Succession, but it’s not like Ozark defeated The Crown last year in Directing, and Aberfan is a directing showcase. So that’s my rationale. I’m basically choosing the 2018 winner over the 2019 winner because it’s a better directing showcase. But I can easily be convinced to switch to Fire Pink.

    My thing is that I get that The Crown defeated Ozark the one time that they faced off (and could have won last year), but that was when The Crown had thirteen nominations to Ozark‘s five (or nine).  Whereas The Crown has been consistent in Emmy support, getting the exact same number of nominations every season, I would say that the first two seasons of Ozark and the third season are totally different beasts: Ozark 3 > The CrownOzark 1/2.  As for “Aberfan” being a better directing showcase, I just do not think that that matters much at all.  That argument was used a lot for “ronny/lily” over Fleabag.  This is also why I am more sympathetic to Succession predictions, since it could just sweep.  Nobody is considering The Crown for the series win, albeit everyone else is predicting Helena Bonham Carter, so they are expecting it to be a bigger player overall than I am.

    I think “Cri de Coeur” is a great episode on its own, but it’s not a great closer to the season — but that’s just me. That said, knowing the directors’ branch, I, too, don’t see why they’d go for that over “Aberfan.” Then again, do the episodes matter? It’s why I am predicting Lesli Linka Glatter!

    Thats an intersting take. And I totally respect your opinion. I loved “Aberfan”. I was hooked from the beginning and it was extremely emotional imo. But I totally understand if it did nothing to you.

    I better find out before I interview the director next week.  Also interviewing Alik Sakharov and Jessica Hobbs then.

    I have already talked to Lesli Linka Glatter this season, so that is half the category.

    With Directing I won’t make a final choice until I see who wins Casting. That’s my same thinking with Directing on the Comedy side (then again I can easily see a scenario where Ramy Youseff still wins Directing if any of Insecure, Maisel or Schitt’s wins casting and/or Series).

    I forgot to factor Ramy‘s casting snub into my directing prediction for it, so I will have to think that over.

    I do. A bit childish to say this. Is this your attempt to get people to gang up on me? You should read my posts if you’re confused. It’s pretty clear I feel he’s a name-check.

    Sorry, it was meant to be a playful tease, like my post about how unhelpful Luca’s post was in clarifying the episode.  You both just took my words at face value though, so I guess that that is on me.

    No worries. It’s hard to fully understand someone through text.

    I do think The Crown takes directing, it won last time it was elegible and Aberfan is seen as a directorial masterpiece. Most people’s favourite episode of the season.

    I think Succession needs to win directing just for that scene between Cox and Strong everything about it was phenomenal.

    I love that Mark Mylod and Matt Shakman directed back to back on both Game of Thrones Season 7 and Succession Season 2! Of course only Mylod is nominated for Succession, but it’s still nice (he should have been nominated for “Thrones'” “Stormborn,” but he submitted “The Queen’s Justice” instead).

    If we’re to say The Crown will win because it won for its last season then with that logic Ozark and Maisel are locks for directing in their categories.

    Still shocks me that Shakman wasn’t nominated at the Emmys for ” The Spoils of War”.

    Awful snub. Especially in favor of “Beyond the Wall,” which had major issues. Name always prevails though, unfortunately.

    He should’ve won.
