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

     

    What I think is that Fleabag got so much attention from the industry and academy because of 1. great writing, actors and execution and 2. because of that cool, sexy, not perfect but very, very likable character. I don’t like likable characters very much myself, but the PWB character got me.

    But again, just my opinion.

    Hader was likable on Barry. He did some bad stuff but you sympathized with him.

    Yeah, I have to agree with this.

    With Phoebe, it was a bit of domino effect. Fleabag s.1 put her on the map in the US, but it was still very small show in terms of recognizability in the industry. Then KE happened and that show moved her name in the rankings to another level. The timing for second season of Fleabag was simply perfect. She nailed it.

    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.

    Ever since the writing snub I’m feeling that. Or like Stranger Things in 2017. Sad.

    For the longest time I’ve felt that Maisel will win its 2nd Comedy Series Emmy, but I’m changing my prediction last minute to Fleabag. It gives me “Arrested Development vibes.”

    Idk why most people are predicting Veep. It was so bad and I think voters acknowledged that with its lower nomination count. Plus no voter would vote for it just because it’s the final season when they can give the series it’s going away present in the form of another win for Julia. But we’ll see soon enough I guess!

    I think Maisel is winning supporting actor, and that’s it. However, it’s also my alternate in series and supporting actress.

    Unpopular opinion: Kelly, Insecure (Natasha Rothwell) > Colman, s2, Fleabag.

    Veep wasn’t bad at all. It was pretty great. It just had intense competition with new-way of some amazing shows coming in.

    Also your argument for it being bad, hence getting less nominations and it not winning despite it being the last season – let me introduce you to Game of Thrones.

    I find it ironic Maisel is predicted to win in the only category it lost last year. At least will complete a full set.

    I really don’t want Olivia Colman to win. It would be such a boring name-check especially since she’s not even there to give a speech.

    FYC: Octavia Spencer (Luce) - Best Supporting Actress

    I hope the fleabag love is big enough for Clifford to win.
