    And people think I’m a “stan” for The Good Place? Where did that term come from, btw?

    From Eminem’s song “Stan”. It’s the name of one of his fans. He tells his story on the song and since then a fan is called a stan too.

    If you’re only on S1 and already loving it you’re going to be obsessed as that’s the worst season of the five

    Thanks! I can’t wait!

    Anyone else think The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is going to pull a Game of Thrones season 5 and just win Series and Supporting Actor?

    I have it winning those two and Supporting Actress as well.

    Barry or Fleabag is winning Series. I just have a hunch. It may pull a Handmaids Tale Season 2.

    Daniel Palladino isn’t beating his wife.

    Anyone thinking Maisel is winning for directing is delusional. Ronny/Lily has that in the bag.

    With Hader presumably winning actor, do you think the Emmys would double down and give him a directing win as well?

    I sure hope not. They would probably revoke his nomination.

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

    Of course, they will. They did it with Glover in 2017 and Bill Hader deserves both the directing and acting award.

    Barry reminds me of Atlanta. They’ll shower it with noms but it’s simply too dark and dramatic to win series. I’m starting to think Fleabag might actually take it.

    Oh and I can definitely see Maisel winning directing since they can’t vote for it in writing.

    I agree that Barry seems like a runner-up at best. Like Atlanta, they like it for what it is and love to nominate it all over the place for its artistry but they would prefer a more traditional comedy to award in series.

    I feel the same way about Fleabag, which I don’t buy winning at all. It is a buzzy offbeat auteur show, like Barry, but it is not the kind of thing that the Emmys feel comfortable rewarding as there is no precedent for it, not to mention it’s a British import, and is six episodes long, etc.

    Therefore, I think the race is between Veep and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which are both past series winner and far more traditional Comedy Series awardees. I give the edge to Maisel because it overperformed in nominations, has below the line support, and will not split the “cool” alternative to Veep vote, which Barry, Fleabag, and to an extent Russian Doll are all classified as.

    “We’re Going to the Catskills!” would be a slam dunk, simply because it references the Catskills arc, if it were directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino. Voters who watched The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 back in December need that episode title to jog their memory but I’m afraid it will split votes with Amy Sherman-Palladino’s episodes simply because it’s her.

    No; I don’t want blink and you miss it TV honored under ANY circumstances. Emmys can’t be seriously thinking giving its comedy series trophy to a show of such brevity. GoT; they were shoehorned into 6 episodes. That’s one thing. It’s quite the other when a show VOLUNTEERS to be so brief.

    There’s only an hour and a half difference in run time between Fleabag Season 2 and TGP season 3. The arc for every main character in Fleabag is complete and written with depth. I’m baffled how screen time can be held against the show when it develops story arcs fuller than 99% of other shows.
