    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.

    I don’t see the correlation. Maybe for Regina’s first win, but you can chalk her second and third wins as pure love from the Academy/name-check. I don’t think Niecy Nash has that in her favor. Besides, her competition is pretty strong.

    I do not see why no one is talking about this year mystery – hpw Sharp Objects managed to enter in Best Limited instead of A Very English Scandal when both of them managed to nominated only two actors, but the British and very strong show also has writing and directictin, while the American mediocre (you know my opinion about it, I would have nominated it only for Lead actress and nothing else) show has neither one of them? How this happened? HBO bias? Many people have spoked about it and maybe this is the confirmation.

    It was most likely extremely close. I think the British bloc probably got it into writing and directing but that vote wasn’t strong enough in series, where most people probably ticked Sharp Objects off even though they preferred one of the 4 stronger shows.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    I have been warned by my dear friend they’re gonna vote for When They See Us to make a political statement. Many of them prefer Chernobyl but they’re not voting for it because they hate Trump more. And that’s why I am not watching Emmys this year. I find it ridiculous to deny the biggest show of the year worldwide just because you don’t like current president.

    Emmy voters: „Chernobyl is on another level, the greatest miniseries I’ve ever seen, a masterpiece from start to finish with a huge global impact. I’m gonna vote with WTSU.”

    Because is a great miniseries and people really loved it. Lile you always love to say, you can see this in social medias, letterboxd and forums.

    Well, all branches vote for limited series, while only directing branch votes for directing and writing branch for writing. It’s not really a mystery. Though Sharp Objects’ snubs in directing, especially, and writing are really surprising. It could have easily replaced one F/V ep in directing.

    I think that show us the amount of support the show has from all the branches of the academy. I think we need to start taking F/V way more seriously than we are.

    I am, when it comes to Williams. She’s winning. But the show isn’t winning anything else.

    Michelle is definitely winning. But if you ask me I wouldn’t be surprised or shocked if the show wins more categories. Specially technical ones like hairstyling, music supervision, and others that I don’t remember.

    Oh OK. Sorry my bad. Yeah I also don’t think it will win any big categories besides Lead Actress for Michelle.

    Voting for a show because of political reasons and not because of quality is disgraceful. Chernobyl should win in a landslide.

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.

    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).

    Completely agreed. While I don’t understand the Clarkson hate and she was my least favorite of the three central gals in Sharp Objects, I still think she had a strong performance and I am not opposed to her winning and I think Sharp Objects deserves a win somewhere.

    But, if Emmy voters feel that Arquette has to win in one category I would prefer it to be over Clarkson because her performance is not nearly as undeniable as I feel Williams’ performance is in Fosse/Verdon.

    Regarding A Very English Scandal missing series, the British bloc kind of only exists above the line.  Patrick Melrose got series with only writing, directing, actor and casting, which is voted on primarily by directors (and producers).  The Honourable Woman got series with only writing, directing and actress.  I was predicting A Very English Scandal to get series with only writing, directing, acting and score because I thought that it was undeniable there.  I had Sharp Objects missing writing and directing, but still edging out A Very English Scandal in casting, so I thought that series would be close, but would ultimately tip in the latter’s favour.  I thought that the crafts would kind of abandon Sharp Objects, but it looks like they actually secured its series nomination, as it got into the design and makeup categories unexpectedly, while A Very English Scandal missed music.

    Gillian Flynn has been totally unlucky with the timing of her projects coming out., Gone Girl, Widows, and now Sharp Objects all missing writing nominations for her and all underperformed at awards. Hopefully she doesn’t compromise the quality of her future work to get a writing nomination cuz her screenplays and stories have been way more thought provoking and interesting and better character studies than a lot of the nominations that get recognized at the Oscars/Emmy.
