    I think the writing snub dooms Mrs. Maisel. With it’s fast paced dialogue and coming off a win in the category it really should have gotten nominated. Over Penfucking15!

    I think this is Barry vs. Maisel… I’m not even trying to be biassed but I’m leaning towards Barry. This increase in love by the people is reminding me of Breaking Bad season 2.

    Barry’s biggest obstacles is that it’s a drama. They don’t like to reward dramadies. I mean Barry made me laugh my ass off several times but that show is dark. I think voters might love all the individual parts of it, the acting, writing and directing, how well crafted it is, but when they vote for series they’ll ultimately go with something lighter and funnier.

    Yeah, I actually agree. The show definitely got darker. They were talking about that on the video that GD posted on YouTube today saying that that would be it’s biggest obstacle. BUT I think it might get past it this year. People really love Barry. I work in the industry and I know a lot of people that just binged both seasons in the course of days because they were addicted to it. I feel like this may be different than many of the past dramedies.

    Is Tony Shalhoub locked to win ?

    Nope…I realize vote splitting is a thing but it should go to Stephen Root. He was the best supporting actor this year.

    He’ll definitely vote-split with Winkler, and Carrigan might as well steal a couple of votes here and there. I suspect they won’t let Maisel go home emptyhanded so I think Shalhoub will win, maybe Borstein too.

    I really want Sarah Goldberg or Sian Clifford to win supporting actress. At least Sarah won’t vote split.

    These nominations are.. refreshing to say the least. Veep is winning Series, Actress and Supporting Actress as farewell gifts. Barry is winning Leading Actor and Directing: “ronny/lily”‘s direction was utterly outstanding, though my personal favourite is Maisel‘s “We’re Going to the Catskills!”. Fleabag‘s refreshing dialogue and characters will win it that Writing Emmy. It’s winning easily, it’s the perfect category to reward it since it’s not winning anything else. I’m satisfied. I wanna keep it objective and classy but I would love for Luke Kirby to win Guest Actor, he’s an outstanding actor and incredibly handsome.

    I still think Barry or Maisel is winning series with Fleabag as the dark horse. The fact that Veep underperformed so much is kind of showing where the Emmy voters heads are at. AND they missed a directing nom. They aren’t winning for series.

    I stan Sarah, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. Sian isn’t happening as much as I’d love her to, she’s fine with the nom. I think it’s Chlumsky vs Goldberg vs Borstein but they easily get bored of repeats nowadays so I guess Borstein is #3 since she also has a co-star to vote split with unlike the other 2.

    Seeing how Barry overperformed and Veep underperformed…I think I’ll risk it and put Sarah as my #1.

    Name checks are officially dead with Janney and Tomlin finally out (I predicted both snubs) and with Schitt’s Creek IN, voters do watch TV like I have always said. And young voters are taking the charge with Kominsky out and Creek, Russian Doll and Fleabag IN (also predicted those two).

    Netflix is so weak though, only 1 nominee of 4 potential ones, they are losing visibility and prestige with every second.

    The only possible name check of all nominee here is Don Cheadle, I would like to know who loves him so much.

    Netflix is the reason “Schitt’s Creek” broke through in the first place, and it’s only second to HBO in most nominations this year. So the glow is far from worn off there.

    I was clearly speaking about the Comedy categories. Netflix is very weak here, they had 4 strong contenders: The Kominsky Method, GLOW, Russian Doll and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, but they were able to succeed only with Russian Doll. HBO and Amazon each have 2 contenders and all 4 of them are stronger than Netflix’s one. Schitt’s Creek was wide seen die to Netflix, but it could have never been their show, they do not care about quality, they just throw money to everyone, that is why they have mostly bad things, they are lucky enough that they also work with talented people that are able to bring them quality.

    Also, Netflix is second due to the random specials, docus and realities that has. They underperformed hugely in all main categories, they have only 1 TV movie (not a success produced by them, Black Mirror was bought from the British), while HBO has 3 movies. They have only 1 limited series, HBO has 2. They have 2 dramas, but again, Bodyguard is not a success produced by them, it was bought from the British, while HBO has 2 dramas produced by them. All other nominees were also produced by their channels or platforms.

    So, in summary, Netflix has only three nominated programs produced by them: Ozark, When They See Us and Russian Doll.
