    Get out of your bubble and see the real world, honey. There are a lot of people that don’t like Barry, just b/c there aren’t many here on GoldDerby doesn’t mean there aren’t any in the real world.

    WHO exactly? Everyone I’ve talked to loves the show and definitely not just on GD. Like I’ve said before, to each their own… I guess.

    Have we seen that kind of consolation prize in the acting categories under the new system? I feel like we have only seen many examples of the opposite.

    Awardswatch forum poll about comedy guest actress has Sandra Oh leading it by a distance. Is she indeed deserving? I think she’s winning here just so they get rid of her and her overdue narrative lol.

    I mean the category is full of great contenders but basically, none of them makes sense as the winner, so why not?

    I highly doubt she’d win this and lose Lead Actress though. It is either both or just Lead Actress.

    In the last 6 days I watched the full seasons of Maisel, Fleabag, Schitt’s Creek, Barry, and Russian Doll. Always cram to try to see who really truly deserves it and who to unleash my passion for. As usual, Goldderby’s users and editors are FULL OF IT when it comes to the odds/hype and the actual performances.

    Luke Kirby deserves so much better in the odds than what he is getting. He was intoxicating and mesmerizing in the finale as Lenny Bruce. He’s what the GUEST category SHOULD be about. Not A listers slumming it up in uneven SNL episodes.

    Also, Jane Lynch has no business winning.

    Kristin Scott Thomas being in 6th when she gives the best performance in her category is a disgrace to this site and why I will once again be issuing a primal scream post to performers branch voters who view this site. It’s disgraceful that this site is so misleading when it comes to who actually deserves to win. 6th??!!! MENOPAUSE!

    Catherine O’Hara and Phoebe Waller-Bridge should tie for Best Actress.

    Absolutely loved Anthony Carrigan’s NOHO Hank. It’s the type of zany character that should win in supporting!

    While Olivia Colman is funny in her limited time, Sian Clifford is also very good and has a bigger role.

    Do not understand why Marin Hinkle is nominated. She’s just sort of….there. She’s not bad but she doesn’t grab my attention at all. Not funny either.

    I think Jane Lynch will win, she is a academy fav.

    Than why didn’t she win last year when Maisel swept everything and the secret was out by than that Tiff Haddish wasn’t funny?

    Even if she didn’t win last year, her performance this past season was even better.

    Like I said in our comedy guest slugfest, I see Maya Rudolph taking this in a Margo Martindale way.  She is at that place in her career where she has enough goodwill to win a random Emmy and The Good Place is that show like The Americans that the Emmys probably feel that they should award somehow.

    As for the ongoing discussion about Barry being too dramatic and that being why Atlanta lost, I maintain the harsh stance that I took early last year when Atlanta was the heavy frontrunner over The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.  (It was still a soft frontrunner by the time that the ceremony rolled around.)  I would have preferred that Atlanta win over The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel of course, but I did not see voters going for a show about poor black people over one about rich white people.  Barry is about white actors and it doubles down on its steak-eater appeal with its Breaking Bad-inspired machismo.  Moonlight did beat La La Land (and that will happen more going forward), but that is still the exception and not the rule for now, plus the voting system was different.  Also worth noting about the Atlanta argument is that not only did Atlanta lose to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel as I had anticipated, but Atlanta surprised me by also losing to Barry (in the actor categories), so any reference to Atlanta under-performing at the Emmys is a point for Barry because Atlanta under-performed directly as a result of Barry over-performing.

    I also think that the idea that the Emmys have a bias for sitcoms over dramedies is just a relic of the old voting system.  The tape system favoured overtly comedic material, the panelists tended to be retirees and thus had more traditional sensibilities and the preferential ballots were penalizing.  The more diverse members of Producers Guild were meanwhile just ticking off their favourites, managing to award both Orange is the New Black and Transparent, while the Emmys simply continued to award Modern Family.  Finally, dramedies are in vogue like never before.  This is the first year in Emmy history that the majority of the Outstanding Comedy Series nominees are dramedies.  Last year was the first that more than two had ever been nominated simultaneously.  Now would be the time when a darker show would win.

    Let’s just be clear if Rudolph wins it would be very well deserved.

    Everyone is talking about how undeserving Shaw’s nomination for Killing Eve is but I just want to point out that she is just as undeserving for Fleabag . Kristin Scott Thomas should win from what I’ve seen.

    FYC: Octavia Spencer (Luce) - Best Supporting Actress

    Shaw was pitch perfect in her guest spot on Fleabag. It’s harder than it looks to come in cold and nail the timing on that show.

    Also she gets to deliver the line “do you want to f*ck god” straight amazing.

    But of course KST deserves the win here. That monologue was emphatic.
