    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.

    It can either go the Atlanta route or the Breaking Bad route.  I strongly think that it is the latter.

    Breaking Bad isn’t a comedy though, being dark and dramatic doesn’t hurt shows in drama, just comedy.

    I still see it doing better than just a runner up like Atlanta.  Atlanta season 2 didn’t even come close to the viewership Barry got for it’s season 2 so more people have watched it.

    But Atlanta season 2 was praised to a level Maisel and Barry can’t even dream of. In this lineup, Fleabag is the only one that comes close to the reviews Atlanta 2 got, but Atlanta was more seen and had the advantage of winning multiple Emmys the year prior. Imo the only thing that prevented an Atlanta sweep was its dramatic undertone.

    They’re definitely not sentimental; at least on the comedy side. It seems like they forgot about JLD’s health battle last year…

    If they were sentimental about Veep I think the nominations would have reflected that more. I think they’ve just moved on, they already won 3 times, and it’s not Game of Thrones, they can’t take a year off, let the academy find a bunch of other shows they like and then come back and retake the crown.

    What do you mean? She wasn’t snubbed or anything.

    No, I know. I mean the show (which was pushed back a year so JLD could focus on her recovery), was snubbed in a lot of categories for the newer, hotter shows.

    Because she’s Olivia Colman, she just pulled off an upset at the Oscars, people think she can do it here too.

    Why is Olivia Colman the second most predicted to win lol?

    I put her in third after Alex Borstein and Sarah Goldberg. I still think Olivia Colman only won the oscar because Gaga and Glenn Close split the vote. She didn’t win for the Night Manager at the Emmys in 2016…

    Olivia Colman is the least deserving from her category. Sian Clifford would be a great winner though.
