    As someone who would prefer to see a handful of others get in before Washington and Witherspoon, the consensus five feels too strong. I want to predict Dever and Haas (and Edgar Jones) but there’s no way of rationalizing it.

    Moving on to lead actor, when I was taking out Aaron Paul just now due to the field of five, I started to consider that Ruffalo could miss. I know he was the frontrunner just two months ago, but his show was such a bomb….and did we not just see Al Pacino miss for a biopic when he was the default frontrunner for a few months? Not going to predict it yet, but think I would consider Irons, Crowe, and Jackman far safe at this point…

    It shouldn’t be hard for people to find the person they want to vote for.

    It’s not about finding who they want to vote for. It’s about them being reminded of someone that they’d forgotten about but also loved by the ballot placement.

    Example 1: voters might have watched Little Fires Everywhere ages ago and adored it but since watched so much programming that when they actually go to vote they are mainly think about Cate Blanchett or Shira Haas. But then the second half of them open up the category, Reese Witherspoon is right there and they are reminded of how much they liked her performance.

    Example 2: a voter, as you say, knows who they want to vote for. Unbelievable is their favourite show of the year. They enter the voting page and are immediately looking for Merritt Wever. But then right next to her is Kerry Washington, who they also remember that they loved watching. They check her off because they have as many votes as they want and consider her also worthy. Accordingly, in spite of the fact that they loved Wever and were looking for her specifically, they have been reminded of Washington by the ballot placement and, given the lack of ranking of votes, have ended up giving her technically as much support as they did Wever despite being more infatuated with the latter’s performance.

    I am not saying ballot is everything. It isn’t. And it could probably, easily influence almost no races. But to say that it is nothing is, in my opinion, naive and lazy when quite clearly it could have an impact in certain situations. Especially now that the 2% rule is gone and all races can potentially be decided by a handful of votes.

    LFE never reached to the buzz level of Unbelievable, Unorthodox and Normal People

    This is simply not true. LFE had multiple viral tweets, with Reese’s “yes you are” being shared a lot when it aired and Kerry’s teeth meme originating from the show, and of course an Hulu representative saying it was their most watched programs (again, it’s illegal to lie to advertisers).

    Maybe Normal People was watched and talked about a lot in UK but it stops there. I follow multiple tv fans on twitter and I’m a part of TV communites and Normal People was simply not talked about compared to the others. Its subject matter is also not that appealing for middle aged voters.

    Regarding Unorthodox, I’m starting to realize its buzz has been overrated. There is no denying that it was really popular worldwide, but according to Flixpatrol, it only stayed in the top 10 of Netflix US 9 days. In comparison, Hollywood stayed in the top 10 16 days. Sadly, it’s not possible to know for Unbelievable as Netflix top 10 weren’t available back then. But if you believe Unorthodox is more popular than Hollywood, you might have to rethink that, at least in the US.

    I think we ought to be careful with the P-word, popular. Last year, “The Act” was the prime example of an insanely popular show that was only recognized for its most acclaimed aspect: the two central performances. It had similar critical reception to Little Fires, if not better. I don’t necessarily want to compare LFE to The Act since the former is heftier, but I think it’s been touted here as a bigger player than it’ll actually be. That finale did not sit well with many people. I loved it, but I can also see why people disliked it (the book ending makes more sense). It’s also a very soapy/melodramatic show, which the TV academy doesn’t go for. I’m not saying it can’t do well (I have it in series and actress), but I don’t think it’s in the top 3 for limited series.

    It’s based on a book but it’s competing in Drama. I also think they already announced season 2 but I’m not sure.

    Are they campagning Mrs. Fletcher because I’ve seen them pushing it (more than The Plot Against America)?

    It’s a shame His Dark Materials has been done dirty by HBO. Like Years and Years if His Dark Materials had been campaigned for it could have had some sort of a chance of getting into Series and Directing. And if McAvoy was submitted in his rightful category of Guest Actor he could have easily snatched a nomination (same with Wilson in her category of 8).

    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.

    I just saw this as soon as I went on there and just came back here to edit my statement!

    All of this. I have never met a person in real life here in the States (even on twitter) that watched Unorthodox. Same with The Normal People. While LFE and Hollywood (albeit the latter not nearly as the former) were both big. It really seemed like Unorthodox and TNP were more of an international and GD/AW thing than domestic, and the latter is what you need for the Emmys.

    Watchmen blew me away despite low viewership. I hope it wins here.

    Girl, it had the biggest HBO debut in 2 years.
