    This is really interesting for me to read, because I absolutely believe season 1 had a better balance. Season 2 is heavier, darker and definitely a drama, with some extremely funny moments (but not particularly frequent). I’m aware I’m in the minority with this assessment, but I just can’t perceive season 2 any other way.

    True, the second season was darker. But I think season 1 took awhile to find its footing, while the show had already figured out what it was trying to be in season 2. The much greater writing made it so that the comedy and drama blended much better than in the first season. Barry’s got some extremely dramatic moments, but most of them in season 2 still had touches of humor. Season 1 was lacking this for almost of the dramatic moments, and really only started to get it right closer to the end. Meanwhile, the dramatic moments in season 2 that have no comedy present hit so much harder than the ones in the first season. I should actually rewatch the first season sometime. I remember I wasn’t really into it when it started, but as it went on, I realized it was showing much more promise, and by the end, I realized that it probably works much better from a narrative structure if you go back and watch it. That way, you can see what it was really trying to accomplish, and appreciate it more. For example, I didn’t like Fuches as a character in the first season. But then, by the end I realized he was the true villain. After that, I loved him in season 2, as he got to truly embrace the role, while also becoming a much more developed character.

    I’m fairly confident in Alex Borstein repeating. First, I doubt Hinkle will steal any votes from her, probably her 10 pals in the acting branch will vote for her and that’s it, unlike Clifford/Colman. Second, Ik Borstein lost voice over performance but it might not necessarily show lack of support. Janney won 2 times in a row, and her first year she also won for drama guest actress for Masters of Sex, but the following year she went on to lose to Martindale’s… cameo in The Americans. Nonetheless she still managed to repeat. And this category has just been on this repeat trend, Bowen wins 2 times in a row, then the Merritt Wever surprise happened, then Janney won 2 times in a row, same with McKinnon, it could happen with Borstein too. Only spoilers benefitting from potential vote splitting are Chlumsky as farewell and Gilpin as passion pick imo but still they both sound like wishful thinking, impossible to happen. Goldberg feels too new and kinda coattail, and I think they’re done rewarding McKinnon, but she’s probably never getting snubbed again until she leaves SNL.

    In the name of all that is good and holy, Fleabag must be demolished Sunday night. Not one single Emmy. The very integrity of the awards is at stake. You can’t give best comedy series to a wisp of a show that clocks in at a mere 132 minutes of episodic TV. GoT, the average runtime per ep was close to, what; an hour 25 minutes? That’s like getting an episode and a half extra than the 6 they agreed to.

    ANYTHING. BUT. FLEABAG.
    ANYONE. BUT. PWB.

    In the name of all that is good and holy, Fleabag must win Sunday night. Every single Emmy. The very integrity of the awards is at stake. You can’t not give best comedy series to a wisp of a show that clocks in at a mere 132 minutes of talent. GoT, the average runtime per ep was close to, what; an hour 25 minutes? That’s like getting another bad episode and a half extra than the 6 they agreed to.

    NOTHING. BUT. FLEABAG.
    NO ONE. BUT. PWB.

    The funny thing is, Guest would be this site’s biggest stan of Fleabag if Kristin Bell was the star. Hell, they’d stan even if she was on the show for only 30 seconds.

    Hinkle winning would make so sense at all.

    Might as well, it would be the typical lazy boring winner they picked at the Creative Farts.

    With Hinkle possibly stealing votes form Borstein and no clear winner between Clifford and Colman, she just makes sense?

    If there is vote splitting Between the Maisel and Fleabag supporting actresses, Sarah Goldberg (Barry) and Anna chlumsky (Veep) would make the most sence since they come from shows nominated in comedy series.

    I think people are just kidding themselves at this point if they think there’s no clear winner between Clifford and Colman now that it’s clear performance has absolutely nothing to do with the voting. Colman is a much bigger name than Clifford.
