    Rachel, I’ve been going through some serious medical stuff of my own but I would be remiss in not offering my sincerest condolences on your loss. the loss of a parent especially, always will leave a gaping wound and I can’t even begin to comprehend how much you’re hurting now. You are not alone, I promise you.

    Honey, I will hurl if Julia Louis-Dreyfus wins again. Let’s spread the wealth.

    I will say that Julia probably deserved at most 3 Emmys Lead Actress for Veep. Tony Hale did not deserve any Emmys for Veep. His first one I strongly feel is to make up for him never being nominated for playing Buster on Arrested Development which was a much better role and performance.

    Everything except The Good Place, right?

    No; I just want comedies to be in the comedy series category. I don’t think it’s that much of a reach to ask the Academy to reject the genre fraud that was rampant this year.

    JLD and Hale earned those wins.

    Guest, thank you 🙂 I’m also sorry you’ve been going through some medical stuff. I hope you feel better. <3

    I really don’t know whether to stick with PWB for Lead Actress or just go with JLD. It seems weird not predicting her to win for the final season when she’s won every season prior. Then again, Veep decreased massively in nominations and is 5th at the best in the Comedy Series Race. It won no creative Emmys. Fleabag is the most popular show right now and everyone knows who PWB is. Fleabag has a great chance to win Series.

    Globes FYC- Fleabag, Phoebe Waller Bridge, Jodie Comer, Dame Emma Thompson, The Crown

    SAG FYC- The Crown, Olivia Colman, Fleabag, PWB

    Critics Choice- Schitts Creek, Fleabag, Killing Eve, Bodyguard

    BAFTA- Fleabag, Killing Eve

    Oscars FYC ‘Little Women’ ‘Downton Abbey’ ‘Maggie Smith’

    Really, not everyone does know who PWB is. Fleabag isn’t THAT popular.

    Within the Industry, Fleabag definitely is huge. Hollywood respects good writing. I’ve never heard someone go “Oh my gosh you have to watch TMMM or Veep!” but I’ve heard that about Fleabag AND Barry. That’s actually why I started watching both of those shows because they were recommended,

    I think there is a possibility for Mrs Maisel to go the Handmaid’s Tale route this year.

    Last year THT came with S2 having maximum no. of nominations (behind GoT) and won a few creative Emmy’s but got completely snubbed at the main event after having a resounding sweep for it’s first season. I can see the same happening with Mrs Maisel. It will be everyone’s second choice, not the first even though it did garner maximum no. of nominations.

    When the chiefs in Amazon (Jennifer Salke), FX (John Landgraf) and Netflix (Reed freakin Hastings) all bring you up unprompted as an example of content they want to invest in, you are absolutely the hottest talent in the industry.

    Landgraf mentioned PWB three times during his TCA event and said if he could sign her on a deal he would do it immediately. Hastings says the show he regretted losing the bid to most was Fleabag. Salke basically offered PWB an open checkbook to do another season of the show.

    Very interesting, thanks. Again, I didn’t mean with media types and investors, I meant popular, like with people. She as an individual is no JLD, Hader, Bornstein, Colman, Oh, Levy, any GoTer or even Applegate.

    And to reiterate, I really like Fleabag and have watched it twice. I just think it’s very niche. PWB is obviously enormously talented and has a huge future.

    Just my opinion…

    The Academy doesn’t like despicable caracteres.  Jason Alexander never won an Emmy playing perfectly one of the most iconic characters in TV history (George Constanza, Seinfeld).  It took 4 years for VEEP win comedy series, even with that FASTASTIC S3.  Julia won 6x playing Selina?  Well it’s JLD.  Nobody does what she does. Many of you agreed watching those actresses clips.

    But let’s take Fleabag.  S1 was very good.  And then we found out (spoiler) what the main character did to her best friend … Fleabag don’t  get one single nomination (nor industry attention, i think).  S2: PWB, very cleverly (in a good way), makes us almost forget how terrible her character is … 11 nominations !!!

    I’m not saying that S2 isn’t very, very good.  What I mean is that in 2015, 2016 and 2017 the academy managed to put likability aside (Atlanta should have won in 2018).  If VEEP finale had Amy giving birth in a hospital with all the characters and Selina asking for forgiveness and hugging everyone, VEEP would have won about 20 nominations.  But no, VEEP was acidic until the end, and that was brave and well, well done, in my opinion.

    No one watched Fleabag s1 when it came out, it’s not because the character is “unlikeable” that it got 0 nominations.

    I don’t think unlikable characters is a reason why people don’t win when actors playing psychopathic murderers have won before.

    In comedy? If you are talking about Bill Harder, i only saw the pilot of Barry and found him likable.  But 1 episode is not enough to say …
