    It did receive great notices initially, but critics only had the first four episodes, i.e. just one shy of the series-upending twist. Had they received all seven for review, I expect the Metacritic score would be lower and we wouldn’t have had it as such a strong contender in our Emmy predictions out of the gate. Case in point: Vulture originally had Run in its list of top series of the year, but appended this disclaimer when they updated their picks:

    An earlier version of this article included an entry for HBO’s Run, which was based on the first half of the season provided for critics. After watching the rest of the season, in particular the finale, we have opted to remove it from this list.

    Has there ever been a cancelled show nominated in above the line categories before? The only things I can recall is that zany 2006 with Andre Braugher (winner) and Stockard Channing. I don’t think this is that show that could pull off such a feat.

    Pushing Daisies in 2009 (won Supporting Actress) and Harry’s Law (nominated for Guest and Lead Actress) as far as I can remember.

    Usually when shows get cancelled after one season the network will trick it into the limited series categories (Regina King for Seven Seconds, Ashley Judd for some show like 10 years ago) which is why there are more examples of this happening to shows cancelled after the 2nd or 3rd season, but I think it’s probably too late to do that for Run, and even if they did their best shot for a nomination would be competing against herself so not really worth it

    eastwest’s question makes me think of one-and-done 24: Legacy.  24 starring Kiefer Sutherland competed ten times with three titles across three program categories from 2002 to 2015 (drama series, movie, limited series) and it was not always acclaimed.  Even shows that are acclaimed inevitably fall off, yet there were certain below-the-line branches that always respected its technical prowess.  It got thirteen nominations for editing, ten for score, nine for both sound editing and mixing and seven for stunts.  Legacy was obviously not as well-received, but I figured that the craft of it would still win out in a couple of these, then it received no Emmy or guild nominations.  It is like Tom says about people wanting to be on the winning team.

    Not a one-and-done, but the second season of The Hour won writing.

    I’m dead at them feeling the need to clarify. They really were like we don’t advocate for that mess!

    Yes.

    If you really want to watch it just watch the first 3 to 5 episodes and just give up. Or just don’t bother.

    Wever was great though (as always).

    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.

    FYC Goldderby Awards : MAURA TIERNEY AND DOMINIC WEST FOR THE FINAL SEASON OF THE AFFAIR

    No. The finale is fine. The full season can be binged quickly. Wever is fantastic throughout.
