    Milo Ventimiglia, here we go. This is Us gonna ride a ton of broad support.

    Also, is it unlimited for writing or directing? If so, Better Call Saul’s ton of submissions isn’t going to hurt since I wouldn’t be surprised if enough people in the Academy tick off every single one of those episodes.

    Glad I called these. All down to the new voting system.

    I do not agree that Better Call Saul surged because of the new system. The new system means that they can check as many Better Call Saul episodes that they want instead of everybody choosing a different one. If the new system had manifested via Better Call Saul, we would have seen multiple nominations in either writing or directing, not the most obvious episode being nominated in each.

    I like the Mandy Patinkin theory, but I am hesitant to rule that one a product of the new system because anytime that you have a seventh nominee, things are going to be screwy. Nobody saw Peter Scolari coming last year, even with the knowledge of all of the other nominees in every category.

    @aayaanupadhyaya covered the rest.

    outside of resulting in the nominations being basic as fuck. Unlimted votes, imo, lead to less inspired nominees.

    But honestly, I just don’t see how that is the case. I mean look at the nominations – Vanessa Bayer (she wasn’t even in the prediction center!), Leslie Jones, Katheryn Hahn, Samira Wiley, Anne Dowd x2, Uzo deservingly returning for season 4, Cox getting in for season 4, Zach Galifianakis, Jackie Hoffman, Michael Kenneth William, Bill Camp, Pamela Adlon, even Milo Ventimigli and to a lesser extent Angela Basset, are all inspired choices. How are any of these basic nominations? If anything, I feel we had more inspired nominees this year than we did last year.

    I would bet that there would me more top 3 votes for The Leftovers than for House of Cards.

    I don’t know about that. I think The Leftovers just was never a factor here. I had been telling you and Riley that this show, as great as it may be, just doesn’t have ANYTHING going for it. There was no guild support, no previous Emmy nominations, not even TCA. It was never happening, so to hold the new voting system (even in a small capacity) responsible for it is unfair.

    Also, even in the old system, they were already marking 10 program nominees. And I don’t think anyone would have marked more than 10-12 shows per category, so again I don’t think the new system impacted even those races.
