    Is Mahershala off the table? He did just win his 2nd Oscar, but it seems the hype for TD completely faded

    I think Ali hysteria has died down with award bodies throwing him hardware for the time being.

    The additional wins Regina King received suggest she’s as competitive as anyone. Although, I think white actresses will rule the female categories while the two boys from When They See Us will take the male categories.

    King has literally nothing to do with Nash lol, what is this? Nash has limited screen time and a co star of hers competing in the same category as her. Not to mention, her competition just flat out give better performances than her. It’s between Williams and Arquette with Adams as a possible dark horse. But Williams should take this, especially after Fosse/Verdon overperformed.

    Right now, I’m predicting Stellan Skarsgard for Supporting Actor. He is a veteran. He is on the most-nominated limited series. Jared Harris might lose to Jharrel Jerome. Emily Watson might lose to either of the two Patricias. Supporting Actor is a more wide open race. I don’t buy the Ben Whishaw prediction as well and I think he is vulnerable with AVES not nominated in Best Limited Series. I think Skarsgard can pull off a win if there’s wide support for Chernobyl in the acting branch especially with WTSU actors possibly vote splitting. Paul Dano is not necessarily a very strong contender with EFD not getting the most nominations and they got everything that it was expected to get. He could win as well, but I think Skarsgard has more edge. Plus his son just won in this category two years ago (although that doesn’t matter). He should not be underestimated.

    So few actresses could have gotten two nominations for something like Getting On (One of my favorite under-the-radar shows ever! I urge everyone to watch it) Nash seems to have a passionate fanbase in the Academy. On the other hand, the categories Regina King won were considerably weaker.

    I want Patricia Clarkson to lose badly. She had one facial expression all series long and didn’t even have one baity scene. Her face naturally looks menacing if she doesn’t smile so that definitely helped in this role lol. Ik I’m sounding ridiculous. I want Arquette who was much more captivating and also baity in The Act, and also far scarier, though appearance (makeup, prosthetics) definitely helped. Maybe the fight of the Pattys ends up pointless and Watson wins on a Chernobyl sweep which however seems less and less likely day by day.

    I need Sharp Objects to win something, and I actually thought Clarkson was brilliant. Basically every scene was baity imo, idk what you’re talking about.

    I guess we have a different perception of baity.

    Chernobyl and When They See Us are both brilliant in their own ways, but the latter will win limited series. The former is a universal story, while the latter is an American one. Voters will not pass on the opportunity to award a show about the Central Park Five, especially since they will be sitting in that audience (I presume). They already went heads over heels for it in the nominations, and while Handmaid’s proved last year that that doesn’t mean anything, this is an entirely different case. Lol, even Craig Mazin (Chernobyl’s writer) is singing Ava’s praises. And don’t forget the Oprah factor of it all, because she’ll be pushing this harder than anyone else.

    Speaking of Craig and Ava, they will both win Emmys: Ava will win directing (she’d make history) and Craig might easily take writing; he’s a well-known and well-liked screenwriter, who co-hosts a screenwriting podcast every week! Besides, Chernobyl is winning somewhere above the line. Of course WTSU could win both writing & directing, as could Chernobyl. Johan Renck has directed episodes of Breaking Bad, Bates Motel, The Walking Dead and more, so he’s somewhat known, but Ava is more popular.

    I hate talking about these shows like this because I loved both and have such tremendous respect for their their monumental achievements, but the Emmys are the Emmys sometimes. And quite honestly, if I had a ballot, my vote would go to Escape at Dannemora, which just blew me away. Not that WTSU and Chernobyl didn’t, but I went into Dannemora thinking I wouldn’t like it.

    Emmy voters must bend the knee to Lena Headey & Emilia Clarke for "Game of Thrones." It's their last chance to award them. Make it happen.

    Like Pulp said, Sharp Objects winning at least one Emmy is a must for me. Since Damy isn’t winning and Scanlen/Flynn snubbed, I can live with Clarkson winning (even if she was my least favorite of the three central gals).

    I am so disappointed that Sharp Objects was snubbed in writing and directing. Flynn and Noxon fleshed out those characters so brilliantly; Camille Preaker is seriously a fascinating character. Jean-Marc Vallée set the tone for this show so incredibly well, and he’s so brilliant with actors. I’m very disappointed.

    Paul Dano seems like a very safe bet for me, not to mention that he actually deserves it.
