    Funny you mention that Brayden. The creator of Giri/Haji posted pictures of an FYC package he was sent by Netflix and the show isn’t included even though every other show is.

    Ooh that makes sense now, it was homemade in response to the creators frustation.

    I doubt that anyone has compared I May Destroy You and Years and Years.  I do not have Michaela Coel.  It is not like the Globes have not snubbed shows that have dominated the top-ten lists.  Sure, I May Destroy You has a massive lead in the top-ten aggregate, but The Leftovers topped the decade aggregate and got no Globe nominations, even with a sexy star married to Jennifer Aniston.  And they ignored Watchmen last year.

    I also doubt that she wins Critics’ Choice.  They are too basic, snubbing the final season of The Leftovers for example even as it topped the aggregate, plus it is more her writing that is acclaimed as opposed to her acting.

    My predictions are also a mess.  I had Amanda Peet snubbed because she seemed too deserving, but then I realized that I still had Christian Slater pretty high in my predictions and it does not make sense that he would get nominated without her.

    Limited actress category is too stacked for Amanda Peet to get in unless HFPA wants to be unpredictable.

    I doubt that anyone has compared I May Destroy You and Years and Years.

    There were a few comparisons earlier on due to their similar viewership and status as British HBO co-productions from award winning creators with high status in the UK but regardless I don’t see how they’re comparable in awards trajectory. I loved Y&Y but IMDY has a lot more buzz than it.

    Limited actress category is too stacked for Amanda Peet to get in unless HFPA wants to be unpredictable.

    I would agree with you if the HFPA hadn’t nominated Connie Britton for Dirty John over Emma Stone in another year where Regina King had just won the Emmy.

    I also doubt that she wins Critics’ Choice. They are too basic, snubbing the final season of The Leftovers for example even as it topped the aggregate, plus it is more her writing that is acclaimed as opposed to her acting.

    I May Destroy You seems to have generated a broader interest than The Leftovers did though. Countless big industry names went out of their way to promote/reference the show in a way I didn’t see with The Leftovers or even critically acclaimed shows which were able to convert buzz into being awards players like Atlanta. Watchmen had not built enough buzz at the time of voting (only 6 of the 9 episodes had aired if I recall), and suffered genre bias in a way I don’t think IMDY does.

    And even though Coel’s writing was even more acclaimed, her performance was still arguably the most acclaimed of the year. She showed up in pretty much every ‘performances of the year’ list, and was named TV Line’s Performer of the Year. Much of the show’s praise is centred on her name specifically, so I think they’d really have to go out of their way to snub her.

    HFPA snubbing I May Destroy You and Michaela Coel would and should spark a lot of debates.

    yeah, and part of me wants to say these people don’t care because of When They See Us snubs, but for them to do it again and especially after this year…bad bad look

    The reason for snubbing WTSU is because they knew if they nominated it, Exonerated Five would come and they don’t want GG to be political. That’s why they strictly advise winners to not speak about politics even though some do like Patricia Arquette last year. I know, a very stupid reason…

    do like Patricia Arquette last year

    And Michelle Williams. Whilst I stanned Williams’ performance and rooted for her during her sweep I find it quite racist that they snubbed WTSU for this. reason when Williams was also giving political speeches because every speech she’s given since All The Money in the World has practically been political.

    Just to clarify I have no issues with political speeches (in fact I think they are a great use of the platform these artists are given) but I take issue with hypocrisy and evident racism.

    LIMITED SERIES
    (ranked in order of perceived likelihood of nomination)

    1. The Queen’s Gambit – Now this is a great field. At last. And fittingly the queen is the only lock.

    —————————————————

    2. The Undoing – I’ve seen rumblings on these forums recently about this missing. And whilst I don’t think it is a lock, my eyebrows would still be near the ceiling if it isn’t called out on nomination day. Because with a show like this, quality just doesn’t matter. With its huge stars and creator, all it needed was buzz and it had buckets of it. Plus it surprisingly did even better abroad than it did in the States and after all we know what the F stands for in HFPA.

    —————————————————

    3. The Good Lord Bird – Just hit its highest position so far in my rankings. Critically acclaimed, wacky in the right way and on Showtime. Seems a good recipe to me.

    4. Small Axe – This is such a strange one because so much on paper about this makes it seem like a lock. It could not be more politically resonant. It could not be more acclaimed. The HFPA have the chance to be the first major group to recognise it. Yet somehow I am uncertain. I suspect that is simply because of the category confusion and the fact that nobody that isn’t a critic or an awards fanatic seems to have watched it.

    —————————————————

    5. Unorthodox – I once had this winning. And I still think there is a world in which it does. But I was stunned recently when I realised how much the critics had abandoned it in their end of year awards. Especially when mere months before so many had been listing it as their preferred alternate to Watchmen at the Emmys. And we all know what happened: The Queen’s Gambit. Everything that Unorthodox achieved has been repeated on an even bigger and more populous scale. The potential for it to be forgotten is there. I hold on because I can’t let go of the fact that it is so aligned with HFPA taste.

    6. I May Destroy You – Hot on the last show’s heels. But it’s kind of the reverse scenario. The amount of critical support is a monumental boost. But nothing about this show screams Golden Globes. I’d say it’s almost too good for them. I guess the comparison I would draw is to how Fleabag season 1 was shunted by them and only picked up when it had already swept the Emmys. Call me cynical but I also just don’t think the HFPA would “get” this show.

    7. Mrs. America – An odd one because on the one hand it never really took off and then underwhelmed at the Emmys, on the other it has the biggest cast of the year and has proved more resilient in maintaining attention than it would have seemed a couple of months ago.

    —————————————————

    8. The Comey Rule – They went for The Loudest Voice last year when they really didn’t need to. And if anything this one is even more of a statement to nominate. I think (and frankly pray) that Trump fatigue has set in enough to hold it back though.

    9. Little Fires Everywhere – At times, I forget how big this was for Hulu. And I guess that’s its problem. But I also do strongly feel like there is potential that we are all hugely underestimating it across the circuit this winter. Witherspoon and Washington are campaigning like it’s still June. The series is also insanely watchable. It won’t take many cards to fall for it to get in.

    —————————————————

    10. Normal People – With the Emmys kind of only half awarding this, there is potential for the Globes still to try to take ownership. But mostly likely too youthful and too small for them to go for.

    11. Hollywood – In my opinion, the HFPA will have loved this show. What remains is whether they will remember it and whether they will feel too embarrassed to nominate it even if they do.

    —————————————————

    12. Your Honor – Suitably random for a nomination in this category. But feels like an acting play if anything.

    13. Dirty John – They’ve picked shows from USA network, Sundance TV and TNT in this contest over the past few years. Why not add Bravo to the mix when it’s producing the kind of trash they like?

    —————————————————

    14. Bad Education – Movies don’t really fly here anymore but if one is going to then it’s this one.

    15. Fargo – Has never missed. Has also never landed with so little fanfare.

    16. Defending Jacob – Will get onto it more in the acting categories but I very strongly feel like Apple missed a trick by not campaigning this as hard for the HFPA as they did for the television academy.

    Absolutely agree with everything you’ve said about The Queen’s Gambit (and that it is likely winning) and how it has overshadowed <i>Unorthodox </i>but one thing that is worth baring in mind about <i>Unorthodox </i>is that it is a show that (whilst acclaimed) wasn’t one critics had passion for. It got shut out of TCA completely. I do think it could end up being the When They See Us to Gambit‘s <i>Unbelievable</i>.

    I suspect that is simply because of the category confusion and the fact that nobody that isn’t a critic or an awards fanatic seems to have watched it.

    Don’t know about its visibility in the US but some industry friends (almost all of whom are writers) were raving about it as if it was a water cooler show when it aired weekly on the BBC. But yeah it’s more of a cinephile and critics show than anything else and I wouldn’t be surprised if it missed here and at SAG but showed up at CC and BAFTA (and then the Emmys in writing, directing and S. Actor).

    Thank you for reminding me about its TCA shutout. However, I still don’t think it means the critics never had passion for it. It’s just that the passion peaked with a wider base of critics after the Emmys confirmed it as a real thing. One only had to go through the “should” section of all of those prediction articles to see it. It’s like how inevitably we are going to see the odd contender with acclaimed reviews show up at the Globes or SAG and not Critics Choice. It’s not that the show or performance wasn’t acclaimed, it’s that not enough of the more basic critics bothered to watch it until it was seen as viable.

    Don’t know about its visibility in the US but some industry friends (almost all of whom are writers) were raving about it as if it was a water cooler show when it aired weekly on the BBC.

Actor).

    Industry is not HFPA let’s not forget. Also, you’ve already hinted at it yourself but there’s a huge difference between the number of GP who have watched Small Axe in the UK, where it was given arguably the biggest slot of the week, to the US, where people have to decide to watch it. Like you, I feel CC and BAFTA are secure but it could be that this is one, like Watchmen, that we have to wait for the Emmys to anoint.

    I’m also on the fence about Small Axe, i don’t know.
