    You forgot Fiona Shaw who’s winning Supporting actress in a drama, and is also a comedy guest actress nominee.

    You may be right. It’d be one thing if Shaw gave a popular performance on Fleabag, but she only had one scene where she mostly just played straight man to Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She did it very well, but it’s a short and non showy performance. I’m gonna keep this in mind. If I heard more passion for her performance, I’d give her the #1 spot. Drama supporting actress is such a mess this year. Aside from Sophie Turner, everyone woman nominated there has a chance to win. Unfortunately, all of them also have noticeable points against them winning at the same time, which helps make it probably the most competitive category of the night.

    I am pretty confident about Kristen Scott Thomas winning Guest Actress, I even have a super bet on her. Riley, you should predict her too.

    I am going for consistency right now instead of hedging my bets. If Kristen Scott Thomas can overcome vote-splitting, then I figure that Fleabag must be strong enough to sweep and I am not predicting that.

    I think more than a few voters will assume that she’ll suffer from it with Comer and then throw their support to her in Guest so she can win at least one Emmy (whether it be with Lead Actress or instead of it).

    The point is that voters do not believe in consolation prizes. If she is not winning in lead, then she will pull a Donald Glover and lose for Saturday Night Live too.

    The reason why I didn’t mention Shaw was because, unlike the examples I listed, both of Shaw’s nominations can be attributed to her being on popular shows the Academy loved. As opposed to Oh randomly getting in for SNL and Dowd being the Leftover’s only nomination.

    I am going for consistency right now instead of hedging my bets. If Kristen Scott Thomas can overcome vote-splitting, then I figure that Fleabag must be strong enough to sweep and I am not predicting that.

    I hear you, but it’s not like the competition is all that strong. I mean if Darcy Carden could not get nominated in a field of eight, does Maya Rudolph really stand a chance? Have enough voters even seen this performance?

    With Jane Lynch, if she couldn’t even win last year when the show completely swept, and actually lost to Tiffany Haddish when SNL lost Guest Actor, Supporting Actor, and Supporting Actress, why would she suddenly win this year?

    Also, I highly doubt anyone who watches Fleabag will vote for Shaw over Scott Thomas, but the former did get a Goldderby nod over the latter, so who knows?

    It’s just exactly the same as her OITNB character. She doesn’t have range.

    Tony Shalhoub’s performance infuriates me, he is so over the top steam-coming-out-your-ears it’s unbelievably annoying. Not a hint of nuance, it’s like being hit over the head with a sack of bricks. Why does everything think he’s a sure thing?

    Hader and Glover lost because of vote splitting not because they refuse to give consolation prizes.

    Can anyone figure out how Schitt’s Creek managed nominations in Comedy Series, Actor and Actress, but NOT writing????

    Did they submit too many scripts? I can’t remember. I’d love to see the show win a surprise Emmy this year, but it doesn’t seem likely. I do think it could take contemporary costumes though. Maybe actress if Rachel, Julia and Phoebe split???

    Because voters probably won’t care about your opinion on his performance…

    The Barry actors are splitting the vote, The Kominsky Method lacks support and Tony Hale isn’t happening this year.

    I’ve just started Schitt’s Creek (don’t judge my lateness). Catherine O’Hara is incredible.

    I’m not up to season 5 and doubt she’ll beat JLD but she definitely should’ve been nominated previously

    the supporting actor nominee from Maisel is not winning. He has been owerrewarded with Monk. They are going with Tony Hale, Veep is also winning lead and supporting actress.

    Tony Hale is not winning a third Emmy for that role.

    Catherine O’Hara should have won Lead Actress in season one for this scene alone

    I love Tony Hale, and he’s never not brilliant on Veep. However, this was the smallest, least showy year he’s ever had on the show. I’d completely support a third win if he had enough material, but he didn’t. It was a performance worthy of a nomination, but not a win.

    And I couldn’t disagree more with anyone criticizing Tony Shalhoub’s work on Maisel. In the hands of a weaker actor, Abe Weissman would be so much more over the top. Shalhoub has managed to add so many wonderful nuances and tics to his role. And while his character may have quite a few freak outs, there’s still more than a few wonderful quiet moments revolving around him. The part may be hammy, but Shalhoub makes it work in a way that causes it to all feel believable, natural, and most importantly, hilarious.

    These 3 won’t split, the race is those 3. O’Hara doesn’t stand a chance, but she’s fourth. Lyonne and Applegate are just happy to be nominated.

    Russian Doll got 11 Emmy nominations and 4 TCA nominations (and one win). I think Lyonne is more competitive than “just happy to be nominated.” I don’t think she’ll win, but she’ll take some votes for sure. I just don’t know which dramedy actress will lose the most to her.
