    With Cynthia gone, do we now have a consensus 6 in Blanchett, Dever, King, Washington, Weaver & Witherspoon?

    Yeah, definetly, since nobody even remembers that Catherine the Great was a thing that exists.

    Pretty much, although I have Zoe Kazan as a spoiler because of how good her reviews were for the full season so I’m assuming she’s gonna get some sensational material at some point that might gain her some traction.

    Inevitable but sad news, it’s gonna get swallowed by Respect a la Loudest Voice & Bombshell.

    This is the likely lineup but I would not rule out Octavia Spencer.
    The show wasn’t that bad and her performance was good.

    Mirren of course is always a contender, due to her name.
    Zoe Kanan and Kathryn Hann for Mrs. Fletcher probably will be forgotten.

    I’m happy about this choice so we will some TV to watch this fall too, assuming they can go back filming in the summer.

    I can’t believe how close we are to Don Johnson getting nominated for Watchmen for a role that would’ve been guest eligible if they went series. Don’t get me wrong, he was great, but almost all of his material is in one episode.

    HBO is now airing it in the fall.

    That opens up a lot of space. Going to have to re-configure a lot of things now as I essentially had this as the nomination runner up to Watchmen. Good news for your fave Unbelievable, though.

    I wasn’t all that interested in it, but I’m disappointed that Donald Sutherland isn’t going to be able to win this year as many of us thought he would. I know he already has an Emmy, but that’s a man who deserves a lot more awards than he currently has.

    Kazan’s chances are a lot higher than Mirren and probably Spencer’s.

    If Octavia’s show was generally better received (she was outstanding though) I would consider her more heavily but the six I previously mentioned just seem so impenetrable right now. The top two for the win being Blanchett & King while the other four benefit from being the same show & the unlimited voting.

    In addition, any contenders who could break the six all have more strikes against them than not
    Spencer — Poorly received show, will be Netflix’s 4th priority at best.
    Kazan – David Simon shows never perform well (if at all), HBO’s focus will be on getting King a win
    Mirren – She missed SAG who adore her, aired so long ago to be remembered, average critical reception.
    Hahn – Too small a show, comedy struggles in limited.
    Cyrus – Not taken seriously as an actor & aired last June.

    Miniseries/Movie actress is probably the easiest category to predict this year. As stated above: Blanchett, King, Wever/Dever, Washington/Witherspoon. I’m expecting a Watchmen sweep lol. I can totally see King win her millionth Emmy even over thespian Blanchett who’s simply thirsty for Triple Crown. Though I’m very confused on who to predict acting-wise from Watchmen as of right now. King is a lock, but the other 3 Idk. Nelson could get in simply because his category is empty, Smart is Emmy royalty so I don’t see why she’d miss, but we need to see how Mrs. America with its 50 supporting actresses will do. Irons is the one I can see the least getting in. There’s no buzz or interest towards his performance. And I personally didn’t care for his character or performance. At least the rest 3 received accolades during winter awards season, while he didn’t. He could coattail of course, there are 2 open slots left (Ruffalo, Crowe, Jackman and Paul are locks).

    I personally loved Irons and thought he was the best performance in it, and some friends of mine who watched thought the same thing. I feel like his character and performance is more popular with people more familiar with the comic/movie. Smart’s character is also from the original story, but her role in the show feels like it was much easier to follow without knowing her backstory from the prior material. Iron’s plot and character felt way more tied to the comic than Smart, or really any of the other characters who weren’t original to the show.

    I agree that he’s the most at risk of missing out. If he went supporting where he belongs, he’d make the cut. I was very iffy on predicting him in lead, but now that we have several men out of the completion due to delays, I feel more confident about him making it in there.

    Irons feel the safest after Ruffalo to me from just the facts he’s acting royalty, chews the scenery in three episodes all about him and is the sole male lead in programme currently predicted to win series.

    When was the last time a top three front runner in limited missed a lead acting category?

    Depending on how the rest of the season plays out, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Watchmen go full When They See Us/American Crime Story with acting nominations.

    Likely to least likely but all still possible

    • Regina King
    • Jean Smart
    • Tim Blake Nelson
    • Jeremy Irons
    • Don Johnson
    • Hong Chau
    • Yahya Abdul-Mateen II
    • Jovan Adepo

    there are 2 open slots left (Ruffalo, Crowe, Jackman and Paul are locks).

    Jackman and Pail don’t feel like locks at all.

    Paul missed all of the winter awards and Westworld & Saul would take votes away from him & the Breaking Bad universe, respectively. Recently series revivals haven’t welcomed in the acting categories (e.g. Twin Peaks, Deadwood), even with broader support.

    Whilst year after year, non-franchise TV movies keep getting snubbed in the acting categories, even with bigger pedigrees than Jackman (Pacino, Oprah, Cumberbatch, Hopkins etc); additionally no HBO April movie has gotten an acting nom since Washington in 2016. Even Deadwood (with a prime May slot, critically raves and monumental craft support) still missed out in the acting categories.

    TV Movie acting nominations are always overestimated year after year. Seems like we always estimate a handful of people to be in contention then we consistently see only one get in. Which I, and others, have mentioned before – an acting nod for a late May HBO release – is where the consistency in terms of getting nods is, which neither Jackman or Paul fit. The category may be weak enough to where they disrupt that precedence, but they are far from assured bets.

    Wouldn’t say he’s a lock but the Emmys have given Paul three wins for this role. Jesse Pinkman is clearly a favorite and in a pretty open category I just don’t see Paul missing.

    Big names in blah TV Movies miss all the time so Jackman is on pretty thin ice to me (Pacino comes to mind, and his movie actually got some traction).
