    Killing Eve isn’t underrated. 5 TCA noms, Emmy nom in an extremely competitive category inspite of airing on BBC America which it could actually win + a writing nom, one of the most raved and talked about series of this year, saw a steady growth in ratings. It still did better than any other show would have done in it’s position.

    Steven Universe
    Altered Carbon (I saw this entire season and it was without question superior to both actual Drama Series frontrunners Game of Thrones Season 7 and especially The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2. AC’s Drama Series snub for Season 1 will always be an unforgivably embarrassing omission for the Emmys in my eyes.)
    The Expanse (though I found the 2nd half of Season 3 a bit of a letdown compared to the awesome 1st half.)
    The End of the F**king World
    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (“Party Monster: Scratching the Surface is without question my favorite comedy episode of the year, and one of my Top 3 favorite episodes of any TV show in general. I seriously need to re-watch that episode because of how clever the commentary was and how consistently funny the gags were.)

    Voice-Over Performance

    “Steven Universe”
    Deedee Magno Hall
    Zach Callison
    Estelle

    “Rick and Morty”
    Justin Roiland

    “The Expanse”
    Wes Chatham
    Dominique Tipper
    David Strathairn

    “Bojack Horseman”
    Will Arnett
    Amy Sedaris
    Alison Brie
    Paul F. Tompkins

    “Marvel’s The Punisher”
    Jon Bernthal
    Daniel Webber (You all are going to laugh at me because I am literally the only person in the world who thinks this, but Webber was win-worthy with a couple powerful episodes he had that would have made spectacular submissions if he had been nominated and if episodes mattered at all.)

    “American Dad”
    Wendy Schaal
    Rachel MacFarlane

    For your Goldderby Film Awards consideration: Isle of Dogs for every category, especially Music Score for Alexandre Desplat!

    I think Jodie Comer was better than Sandra Oh and deserved the Emmy nomination.The show was also robbed for outstanding drama series

    Better Things deserved so much more than just Adlon at the emmys, and in general this show isn’t being talked about nearly enough.

    Nathan For You and Nathan Fielder, I can never find anyone to talk about this show with which is tragic because it’s one of the greatest shows I’ve ever watched and this past season was a masterpiece.

    The Deuce & Maggie Gyllenhaal, this show is probably the best drama on tv right now and no one is talking about it.

    Lady Dynamite & Maria Bamford, such a unique and fun show/performance that got cancelled way too soon. I hope this can gather a cult following over time.

    Christine Baranski, The Good Fight- gets robbed because no body has heard of CBS All Access

    Jodi Comer, Killing Eve- I think this will change next year barring a sophomore disaster.

    The CW’s The Originals‘ cinematography. Better than half this year’s nominees’ (for one-hour single-camera). Too bad they don’t give a shit about the CW, justifyingly, but sometimes it’s unfair.
