    6/10 nominees are people of color.
    4/10 nominees are LGBTQ+.

    And people still say it’s hard to find top quality work from minority creatives to nominate.

    So independent tv is apparently defined not by budget/scale but aesthetic. (per variety)

    Ultimately, with no budgetary cap (unlike the $22.5 million limit in film), and with most TV projects coming from major networks and studios, Film Independent president John Walsh told me at the time that it would come down to a “smell test”: “aesthetic, original provocative subject matter, unique voice and diversity. The types of work that we celebrate on the film side, and TV side, they’re going to look very similar. … Somehow these singular voices are finding their way into television and making a mark on the culture. We are remiss if we don’t celebrate that.”

    If there’s a through line with the 2021 noms, it’s that all five projects tell uniquely personal stories: “I May Destroy You,” about sexual assault and trauma; “A Teacher,” about exploitation, grooming and abuse; “Small Axe,” stories about West Indian immigrants in 1960s to 1980s London; “Little America,” stories about the immigrant experience in the United States; and “Unorthodox,” about a young woman fleeing her strict Hasidic Jewish community.

    But here’s another similarity: The fact that all five nominees come from streaming services (give FX an asterisk, but “A Teacher” launched on its Hulu streaming portal) is telling. These are multi-billion dollar corporations, not scrappy little indie distributors. But premium cable and streamers — free of the need to satisfy advertiser demands for the broadest audience possible — have long been able to run smaller, more narrow and targeted projects that are also some of TV’s most original, and yes, “indie”-minded fare.

    Hopefully Shira finally wins something for that tour de force performance!

    I am assuming <i>Normal People</i> was shut out? I don’t see how it could have been ineligible considering <i>Zero Zero Zero </i>is an Amazon import whilst <i>Normal People </i>was co-produced by Hulu.

    Is that worrisome for its chances?

    Small Axe is also a nominee so it’s pretty clear they didn’t care for Normal People.

    Normal People is basically two 2.5/3-hour indies, so those snubs are huge!

    Keep an eye out for Shira and Amit here! The episode of Unorthodox that has been submitted is the finale.
