    I would personally like Hinkle over Borstein cause Borstein was just doing the same as in season 1 whereas Hinkle Got a lot more nuance to her character which she played beautifully

    I think Supporting Races are pretty simple with both of them going to Mrs. Maisel actors (Borstein and Shalhoub), it is going to be like Modern Family’s second series win except the Writing and Directing wins.

    If Chlumsky isn’t winning because of a weaker season, then Gilpin is definitely not winning either.

    Betty Gilpin is a wildcard. Her show is weaker, but she is arguably stronger, given her co-lead role in the second season and win-worthy performance. People have brought up Thandie Newton as having some parallels and another that I will add that has some parallels is Maggie Smith. The acting branch pretty much forgot that Downton Abbey was still on the air for its final season, so it only got a single acting nomination for the first time, which was demonstrative of a loss of support overall. But the show had been a favourite over the years and had even just come off of another SAG ensemble win, so with only one acting nomination (in a divided field), it was able to consolidate support and get its first acting win in years. GLOW is not nearly as cool to the Emmy voters as it was previously, but I get the feeling that they still saw it, plus it must still have something of a base within the acting branch, seeing as it got three SAG nominations, including a win over four dramas. Between being the only Emmy nominee both seasons and the only Critics’ Choice nominee this season, Gilpin has also become kind of the Maggie Smith stronghold of her show.

    I think this is how the Emmys will spread the wealth in the Comedy categories:

    Maisel wins 3: Series, Supporting Actor and Actress,

    Barry wins 2: Lead Actor and Directing

    Veep wins 1: Lead Actress

    Fleabag wins 1: Writing

    Who knows where the Guest acting categories will go lol.

    GLOW is such a SAG show though. Struggling actor(s), asshole director, large and diverse ensemble, Netflix. But maybe the new season airing while the voting is ongoing will make a difference.

    I just finished season 2 of Barry, and I thought it was brilliant. I sure hope Bill Hader wins Actor and Directing and I wish one of the supporting actors can win, but I think they will vote split (unfortunately).

    Sarah Goldberg is still a possibility but people on GD seem to be convinced otherwise.

    I thought Goldberg did much better this season, but who knows, I loved her performance but there are so many other great performances.

    I think many people vote for Veep cause it is a safe bet, but I hope they actually watch some of the nominations and vote for either Maisel or Barry!!!!

    This is where Barry is on the lucky side. Voters obviously watched the Game of Thrones final season when it aired, which means many of them also watched Barry which followed directly after. I mentioned after the finale for people to watch out for surprise nominations for Barry because of its increase in viewership. Going from about 0.4 m viewers per episode to 2 million viewers, due to its time slot after Game of Thrones. It did end up getting those surprise nominations. People definitely watched Barry, and they enjoyed Barry. While Maisel is still a huge threat, I think Barry, yes, the dramedy, is the biggest threat to taking the award for series this year.

    I really like this comparison. Only small flaw is that …Betty Gilpin is not Maggie Smith.

    I’m a little nervous about the Barry confidence in the series race only because it feels too similar to Atlanta last year: the cooler, trendier, edgier, and probably by most accounts better show that doesn’t have enough support to take the main prize home. I think Barry will have an easy time taking actor (no competition) and directing (vote-splitting a lesser factor than Atlanta), and Goldberg is more competitive than Beetz was last year purely due to an increased presence in the season, but I still think it might be a little too different to take it all hime. Atlanta is definitely edgier (see: African American) than Barry, but Barry is still a really, really dark comedy, probably the darkest comedy to ever win series if it does. I just have a hard time imagining older and more classical voters choosing it for the top prize over a well-executed show about rich white people in the 60’s or a more traditional comedy starring a television legend.

    I still find it hard to believe that Fleabag actually got all those nominations. It’s so surreal, looking similar to my personal nominees. Is this what happens when voters actually watch a show?

    I hope so, yeah! (tho I’m not sure how you can watch Fleabag and not nominate Andrew Scott, lol)

    I guess we can all agree that Phoebe’s profile skyrocketed in the last two years, with Killing Eve s.1 being that crucial catalyst. So it is a mixture of all those things and this is why probably both Fleabag and KE got so many noms.

    Sorry, but I don’t get this Andrew Scott fuss. First, the category was crowded and they went with 3 Barry actors, and I think Scott actually got limited material in Fleabag, not enough to be considered an acting showcase. He was great as the priest and had great chemistry with Phoebe, but idk. Convince me why he should be an Emmy nominee for this show.

    It will be forever classified as a GMOL (Great Mystery of Life) why something so short could get ELEVEN NOMINATIONS while broadcast network’s best series could only muster 5. People were simply watching the wrong shows and got snookered by critics who said Fleabag was the best thing ever. Which it isn’t. Not even close.
