    All the shows nominated for Best Drama Ensemble at SAG this year are eligible for the Emmys in September apart from Game of Thrones (which obviously won the Drama Series Emmy last year).

    I’m convinced that we could be underestimating at least one of these shows in this poll at the Emmys due to the fact that they were snubbed at SAG. The question is which show are we underestimating? Which show would have been nominated for Drama Ensemble instead of Game of Thrones had it been ineligible?

    FYC Emmys : Jodie Comer ("Killing Eve"), Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials"), Russell Tovery ("Years and Years"), Helena Bonham Carter ("The Crown") & The Crown, His Dark Materials, Years and Years, Succession and The Affair in all categories. The Politician : Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bette Midler and Judith Light.

    These hypotheticals have gotten excessively specific.

    Probably Pose.

    SAG has a habit of completely ignoring a show in the first season and then nominated it for ensemble after it gets nominated / wins the Emmys (West Wing, Lost, 30 Rock, True Blood, Homeland, Veep, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Atlanta, This Is Us, Ozark).

    It also has a large ensemble cast, a diverse cast and it’s first season was made available on Netflix during the eligibility period. All three things which SAG TV voters love.

    Interesting. I’m inclined to agree with this but I think it could have been Succession as well for similar reasons you said (apart from diverse cast).

    As much as there is evidence The Morning Show could have gotten it, I don’t think it was close.
