    Thing is Regina has undeniable industry support. Industry loves her, she’s worked in front of and behind the camera for many years. And last year she was in a flawed category: obviously the acting branch doesn’t seem to care for TV movie performances unless they’re truly undeniable, no nominee was in a series nominee except for Dockery who I guess lacked the buzz to win and had a quiet performance mostly; Paulson & Falco were filler, and if it was King vs Biel (no series nominee) ofc King was gonna win in such duel.
    With Ali, he’s up against Harris, Jerome and Rockwell, all in series nominated and embraced by the TV academy shows.

    I just wrote an article about this yesterday and just one minor correction: Zoe Kazan was also nominated for Olive Kitteridge, so it won 3/4 acting nods. Kazan lost to Regina King.

    And what was your conclusion may I ask? Should I predict a WTSU sweep minus Directing or should I give Supporting categories to Chernobyl?

    As much as I’m rooting for WTSU and Jerome, Niecy Nash winning would be arguably one of the worst Emmy wins in recent history given her competition.

    Well, I believe WTSU seemed to have a leg up most of the time (casting, acting nods, character-driven). I think “Chernobyl’s” real strength is its below-the-line performance, especially its editing win, which WTSU wasn’t even nominated for. And every single winner since 2010 has at least been nominated for editing, so that does worry me – although the correlation might just be coincidental. I will see how I feel Sunday morning and just go with my gut. Stats point to WTSU (for the most part), but I don’t think it’s a done deal. Not after those 7 Creative Arts Emmys.

    I think the fact Chernobyl managed to beat GoT in a category we all thought there’s like zero chance anyone else could win (production design for the Bells), shows the Academy has huge affection for it. It can all be just a technical thing though, but adding up all those indications make me believe Chernobyl will be the one to win the top prize eventually

    That said, WTSU maxed out in acting nods while Chernobly didn’t get in Jessie Buckley, who should have been an easy coattail nominee. If Assante Blackk was able to get in, then there’s no excuse for her not to. Plus, WTSU got three supporting players into the lead races – so the show absolutely has the support from actors, who make up one of the TV academy’s largest branches. So predicting Chernobyl to pick up acting wins over WTSU seems odd to me, unless vote-splitting really is that much of a factor in the supporting races.

    WTSU is winning at least one acting award and Jerome makes the most sense, even if I initially thought Jared Harris was winning.

    Do you know how large? I know the Academy has around 25.000 members but I have no idea how many are actors. Anyway not all of them are going to vote with WTSU.

    I really think Jared Haris might win it

    I don’t think Academy is ready to award a newcomer who isn’t white (bitter pill). Unlike Jared Haris who has the visibility and has done many roles on Television, Jereome is relatively new. Also Academy often awards only those POC actors that have been in industry for ages, have Oscar nominations behind their back and massive industry support or hype (In last few years – Regina, Viola, Uzo, Thandie, Sterling)

    An Emmy win would really push Jerome’s career. Let it happen!
