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!
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.September 22, 2019 at 9:41 am #1203092485
I think Maisel is winning supporting actor, and that’s it. However, it’s also my alternate in series and supporting actress.
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.

I hope the fleabag love is big enough for Clifford to win.September 22, 2019 at 10:47 am #1203092709
Maybe she taped a speech, in preparation for when she shows up in the future to collect her Queen Elizabeth EmmySeptember 22, 2019 at 11:29 am #1203092836
Just doubled down and moved my 5x multiplier to Barry (from Jharrel Jerome). The other one stays with Hader. Am I what they call a stan. Yikes.September 22, 2019 at 11:32 am #1203092851
Eh…she annoyed me with what she did to Boo.
Yes, and Barry annoyed me with what he did in the s1 finale. Still the shows tries to give them redemption, or at least their will to do so.

Barry and Fleabag are both deeply flawed, three dimensional characters. However, Fleabag is definitely the more likable of the two. Fleabag is childish, brash, and vulgar, while Barry is friendly, endearingly dorky, and tries his best to be non confrontational. The key word being “tries”. Barry’s tried, but for reasons that aren’t always his fault, he’s still the murderer that he was at the start of the show. Meanwhile, Fleabag has grown much more as a person. While still the same Fleabag at the end as she was in the beginning, she’s made many changes that were ultimately for the better. We’ll see whether Barry can go down a path of redemption like Fleabag did, or become more of a villain in future seasons. Personally, I don’t know how Barry is gonna end, but I’m pretty sure television’s favorite hitman isn’t gonna get a happy conclusion.
