    I’m still upset about some of those Barry losses…

    We flipped out two years ago when Stranger Things won five Creative Arts Emmys, including main title design. Only one of those wins was over The Handmaid’s Tale (and it was deserved). Although it had done very well overall (eighteen nominations), Stranger Things had some random signs of weakness in the nominations phase (Winona Ryder). The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the Stranger Things here. It won six Creative Arts Emmys, but only one was over Fleabag (and it was deserved). Although it did very well in nominations (twenty), there was random weakness (writing).

    Then again, Game of Thrones came out of the Creative Arts last year without casting or editing, then it went on to lose writing and directing. The competition was so steep that supporting actor was the only award that it won at the main telecast aside from series. So The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel could be Game of Thrones. Maybe the field is divided enough that it still has enough to take series. Plus its losses can be chalked up to merit (casting and writing) or vote-splitting (directing and editing). And both won more at the Creative Arts than expected, with seven for Game of Thrones and six for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

    I’m far from being an expert on the comedy categories (I don’t even follow them all too much), but for now I put Ms. Maisel at 1st. The sheer amount of Creative Arts it won and the fact it won last year makes me believe it will be just another repeat. Also from where I’m sitting it looks like this season of Maisel had much more buzz than Fleabag’s

    I’m keeping JLD though.. even if it was Veep’s only nomination I’d still predict her to win

    1. Bill Hader (and it’s not even close. That was gold.)
    2. Eugene Levy
    3. Don Cheadle
    4. Ted Danson
    5. Michael Douglas
    6. Anthony Anderson (wtf)

     

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    But Game of Thrones did not have that glaring writing snub that Mrs. Maisel has, and in a race this close, I am not going to discount that writing snub.

    I have decided to go all-in on Fleabag, and am predicting it for Series, Lead Actress, Writing, Directing, and even Supporting Actress for Coleman.

    The only one I might change is Coleman because she might suffer from vote-splitting with Clifford because that Scott-Thomas loss to Jane Lynch is making me nervous about vote-splitting affecting supporting actress as well. Then again, I can’t fathom how Fiona Shaw could steal that many votes from Scott-Thomas to begin with, unless there were votes wanting to reward her for both Killing Eve and Fleabag in this category.

    I’m really confused by Colman vs Borstein. Both face potential vote splitting. Clifford’s performance is obviously stronger than Hinkle’s so theoretically she could steal votes, but Colman is such a big name that she could overcome both the vote split and the Maisel love.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Yep same thoughts. After yesterday I fully expect the comedy winners to be incumbents or former winners: Hader, JLD, Shaloub and Borstein.

    A recent Oscar winner in the buzziest show has the best chance of swaying some from checking off familiar faces but I wouldn’t put money on it.

    Borstein makes the most sense but for some reason I don’t see her repeating even with TMMM still being loved.

    Just watch McKinnon winning.

    Hader, JLD, Shaloub and Borstein

    Now that Lynch and Kirby won, if Shalhoub and Borstein both prevail, there’s no way they don’t award Brosnahan.

    If last night’s wins make us think that they’re not partial to sentimental choices, will JLD be able to win on performance alone if they don’t care about Veep?

    I hope people take Veep out of the top spot for Comedy Series now because it was never happening.

    Veep is like after Fleabag, Maisel, Barry & Russian Doll.

    It’ll be hilarious if Sarah Goldberg pulls off a Merritt Wever and wins Comedy Supporting Actress out of nowhere.

    And, like Wever’s, would be a truly great win.
