    I am not sure how much industry respect Alec Berg has actually. He has certainly done enough to earn it, but it rubs me the wrong way that he was only nominated for directing Silicon Valley and Barry in the years when the Emmys were nominating everyone from those shows.

    Yeah, but I don’t think being 2nd to Mike Judge and Bill Hader says anything about how much industry respect he gets. In the years he wasn’t nominated it’s just because the show wasn’t strong enough to get a 2nd directing nom. If he had been the go to director to get nominated, like Judge or Hader I assume most of us would be predicting Barry to split the vote. Since he isn’t it’s not that obvious, but it could still happen.

    Why do you have an insidious keyboard?

    I can’t tell if either he is finally admitting that his intentions are to be a chaotic mess on this site or his keyboard is literally an item from the Insidious movies. It’s demonic either way.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    Either reply to me with actual words or don’t reply at all. It’s breathtakingly ignorant to reply to someone with a picture. I would hope that you’re not ignorant.

    If being replied to with a gif is taking your breath away you may need to consult a doctor. Might be a real health issue.

    It’s breathtakingly ignorant to dismiss the quality of every and any show competing with your favorite, use excuses such as “category fraud” or “limited run-time” to try and delegitimize the accolades received by said shows, insist that award shows have a network bias rather than come to terms that the network model of television is outdated, and above all else shamelessly insult specific performers (namely I recall Rachel Brosnahan and Phoebe Waller-Bridge) for merely existing on comedies not called The Good Place. But sorry that someone using a gif ruffled your feathers.

    He’s cringe and annoying.

    I thought so during the 1st season, but I thought Carrigan’s performance and the writing for the character improved a lot in season 2.

    I have tried both replying to Guest 2018 with words and GIFs and the latter is the only way that I can ever engage him in conversation, by which I mean that he gets upset about me using a GIF. He tends not to respond at all to text responses, so there is no winning with him, which is textbook Guest 2018.

    The argument of old voters not voting for fleabag is a good one, this is a show that talks about anal sex in the opening minutes of its pilot. So yeah it can turn off the conservatives, who would vote for Maisel or Veep.

    Veep has won three times and I’ve lost count of the number of times Selina has talked about her twat on the show. I don’t think old voters are a factor here.

    Talking about a “twat” is nothing compared to Fleabag.

    There is nothing raunchy about Fleabag season 2? There’s no nudity (in the whole series in fact) nor is the relationship between Fleabag and the priest hypersexualised for the sake of it. There is a transgressive aspect to their relationship but it’s not played for shock value.

    Yeah I don’t really get this talk about Fleabag being super sexual.

    Fleabag is totally winning Lead Actress, Guest Actress, and Writing. I’m also tempted to put in for Series, but I feel like Barry will take series along with Actor, Directing and probably Supporting Actress.

    I dont see how Fleabag overcomes vote splitting in Supporting Actress though.

    To clarify, I believe the bias towards The Good Place is insidious. That’s my bad for not elaborating on that. The comedy series nomination was a crumb tossed its way, to them, a filler nominee. If it wasn’t filler, they’d have been nominated for a lot more than a mere 5 awards.
