    Peak TV is always the lame excuse to justify ridiculous TV Academy rules. Let’s just nominate everyone. Why stop at 8. Maybe go to 10.

    As usual Riley and I are right. Get rid of 2%. And that high horse will remain under my legs.

    You’re not right, it’s an opinionated issue. I love this category because it has eight amazing performers.

    Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor

    The 2% rule is perfectly fine. Expect the membership to eventually expand both Comedy and Drama Series to ten nominees each.

    “There is neither a Santa Claus nor an Easter bunny, and there are no angels watching over us. Things just happen for no reason. And nothing makes any sense.” Veronica Mars season 2, episode 22, ‘Not Pictured”

    Sorta like today’s nomination debacle in comedy.

    The problem is that stans of fringe choices like Russian Doll, Dead to Me and Fleabag scream to the high heavens and then the saps at the Academy feel the need to expand the category to Oscar Best Picture proportions when they don’t need to. 6 nominees is enough. Especially this year.

    Rolling Stone:

    SNUB: Anyone not named Ted Danson from The Good Place

    We love that the best comedy on network TV finally got a series nomination, but this is becoming an annual problem. Ted Danson is a living legend. But why can’t we spread the Good Place wealth? We’re three seasons in now and that’s two nominations for Danson and — checks notes — none for the rest of the regular cast? (At least Maya Rudolph got another guest nod.) William Jackson Harper? Kristen Bell?!?! The real crime was skipping D’Arcy Carden for Best Supporting Actress. The nomination co-announcer had a brilliant season-three episode in which she basically imitated the rest of the cast to perfection. She offers that kind of comedy master class on network TV and you’re going to make her announce her own snub? Sorry. You’re all going to the Bad Place.

    Tis an outrage Guest 2018! Once again the industry ignores the populist demand and goes for obscure art house shows! Sad!

    So, here are the 100/1 odds (In the Comedy categories) that actually got nominated.

    Surprisingly, there was at least one 100/1 nominee in every major comedy category we could predict. Also, the Comedy Supporting Actress streak of getting at least one 100/1 nominee every year (We can check) is still intact

    • Outstanding Comedy Series: Schitt’s Creek
    • Outstanding Lead Actress: Catherine O’Hara – Schitt’s Creek
    • Outstanding Lead Actor: Eugene Levy – Schitt’s Creek
    • Outstanding Supporting Actress: Sian Clifford – Fleabag, Sarah Goldberg – Barry (99/1)
    • Outstanding Supporting Actor: Anthony Carrigan – Barry
    • Outstanding Guest Actress: Fiona Shaw – Fleabag, Kristin Scott Thomas – Fleabag
    • Outstanding Guest Actor: Robert De Niro – SNL, Rufus Sewell – Marvellous Mrs Maisel

    The one thing that’s positively frightening from today?

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/race/emmy-nominations-2019-good-bad-just-weird-reveals-1224561

    Network TV shows are hanging on for dear life by the hair on their chinny chin chin. As much as the Good Place was jobbed again and This is Us rallied from getting hosed last year (sort of), that. What happens next year when TGP leaves? No network comedies at all, then.

    Some brave new world, indeed.

    SNL taking all these acting slots (especially in guest) is tiring, and taking away from great performances in actual comedy series! I always get upset about this each year.

    I am sooooooooo happy that Schitt’s Creek finally got the Emmy nominations that it deserved for series, O’Hara and Eugene Levy. Dan Levy and Annie Murphy should have been nominated as well, but I expect them to make it next year.

    I wish that Jenifer Lewis would have made it in Supporting Actress for black-ish.

    Yes. One with D’Arcy Carden, Gillian Anderson and Jameela Jamil in it. With Sarah Goldberg, Olivia Colman and Marin Hinkle nowhere near it. And zero SNL’ers.

    I’m still pissed that Will Arnett hasn’t been nominated for his voice over work, I honestly think his performance is good enough to warrant being nominated for lead actor in a comedy series.

    At least he got a nomination as a producer, maybe it can win.
