    Took out Hollywood from my predictions yesterday for…Defending Jacob. I already predict Evans so why not the show. It’s actually pretty enjoyable and if they go for LFE, why not this? Normal People is one of my fav shows in the category but I really don’t think it’s happening in Series.

    I would say don’t take the show out of your predictions until you see the rest of it. You still haven’t seen Abrahamson’s directing submission or Edgar-Jones or Mescal’s stand out episodes yet (Mescal’s is episode 10 which is the one that he’s getting the buzz for).

    I am not concerned about the quality of their performances, but about the fact that academy voters might not want to, this year, reward a show that centers on two (white) people falling in love.

    As I said before. Wait till you finish the whole programme before deciding whether or not to take the programme out of your predictions. IMO it becomes more nuanced and multi dimensional in terms of the story (i.e. it’s not only about two (white) people falling in love).

    And I’m saying this as someone who thought the first three episodes of Normal People were appaling.

    I’ve never had the show itself in. It’s only been Mescal. Our top 3 for limited series are locked, and after that, I have LFE and Defending Jacob. The former has turned out to be bigger than I ever thought it would be – plus, it has the relevant subtext – while the latter has been gaining momentum thanks to Apple’s campaign and people generally liking the show.

    Yeah no I didn’t mean in Series I meant like wait till you finish the whole programme before deciding whether to take it out completely above the line (i.e. Mescal).

    I am swapping between Defending Jacob and Normal People for the last slot and am confident in a line up that includes Watchmen, Mrs. America, Unbelievable and Little Fires Everywhere (more or less in that order).

    This won’t happen in a million years but I want both Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor to get nominated just for the laugh of it all.

    It would even be more laughable if Cherry Jones got nominated too.

    I was so confused by what you meant so I googled and LMAO I am now officially rooting for Cherry Jones, Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson all to get nominated.

    I don’t think Normal People being about two white people falling in love would hurt its chances lol. It’s pretty universally praised, and it’s not like them being white is hammered home or something.

    I’m sticking with it in my 5th slot and I’m willing to die on that hill because it’s a really fantastic series and the buzz is there.

    It could very, very easily happen and I’m actually predicting it to.

    Really? How so?

    So you think TV Academy might not want to vote for a show about two white people falling in love but would want to vote for a show about a priviliged white suburban family intervened in a crime?

    Yeah, actors are definetly the people that need more categories at the award shows.

    All the categories at SAG are actors…

    Niecy Nash, Mrs. America

    I know she didn’t have that much material but she was one of the standouts in the ensemble to me.

    Do I have to reconsider Aaron Paul and Hugh Jackman?

    Yes – I’ve been saying since the beginning that NP does not appeal to the average Emmy voter. I know TV Movies’ track record for actors is on a downward trajectory but you’d have to imagine all the positive word of mouth will result in a Jackman nom at the very least.

    don’t know why Smart and Janney are favored here more than her

    Because they are both competing for guaranteed program nominees…

    I really think we’re overestimating Aaron Paul. He literally got shut of every precursor including the Critics Choice Awards (where he went from a win to a snub). I mean if the critics (who love Breaking Bad more than anyone) nominate Rhea Seehorn at TCA but shut El Camino out completely and nominate Plemons and give El Camino the win at CC but shut out Paul that really says something.

    Oh he’s shaky for sure. My comment was more in reference to Hugh Jackman.

    I still have Paul in fifth but I am tempted to swap him out for a NGNG pick.

    Personally, I do not buy Evans either – not saying it’s fair or accurate but there will be a sizable chunk of voters who only see him as Captain America and will not respect him as a serious actor. That’s just the reality.

    That’s a good point. However he has distinguished himself amongst people in the industry for actually acting quite well in some films (i.e. Gifted) and don’t forget he received some of the strongest reviews of the Knives Out ensemble and some of that films leftover buzz could help him here.

    Also for your NGNG pick I’d recommend going for either Mescal, Spector, Holland, Pope or Tovey. Mescal for obvious reasons, Spector because I think The Plot Against America might surprise in Series after its TCA nom, Pope because his performance was actually acclaimed in the worst Hollywood reviews, Holland because he’s so underrated and Tovey because he actually has some buzz from his role in the recent production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf? and probably would have been more in the conversation had the Tonys gone ahead this year (he was one of the nomination frontrunners).
