    On a separate note I’m very surprised that the 2020 Creative Arts Emmys record of worst Emmy fail in category announcement was not broken on Sunday.

    I’d consider that an absolute win.

    FYC Oscars: Chloe Zhao (Nomadland), Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mark Rylance (Trail of the Chicago 7), Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom), Soul (Best Picture, Best Animated Feature Film, and Best Original Screenplay)

    FYC Grammys: Circles (Album of the Year), Good News (Record and Song of the Year), Future Nostalgia (Album of the Year), Don't Start Now (Record and Song of the Year), Everything I Wanted (Record and Song of the Year)

    A bit of an obvious inevitability, but there are now two cable networks that aired a Comedy Series winner: HBO and Pop TV. Though of course if it wasn’t for streaming, I assume SC would have continued its level from its first 4 seasons. Netflix eventually winning Comedy or Drama seems inevitable, but I wonder if FX will, in the age of HBO + streaming domination…

    FX shows are also on Hulu in the US, so their shows benefit from that. FX is also putting out more and more impressive stuff each year. I wouldn’t be surprised. What We Do In The Shadows was a surprise hit with the academy this year.

    HBO finally won movie again after losing the last four years. Before this stretch, they had never lost consecutive awards since they first won the category in 1993.

    Would it still win with Black Mirror in the lineup? In other news, Paramount Network is renaming itself as Paramount Movie Network and slated to release 52 original television movies in a year!

    Lol that category is finally going to be relevant again!

    I think Bad Education still would’ve won with Black Mirror around. Andrew Scott should have been a slam dunk win in guest (best performance in the category in an Emmy favorite show who would’ve been a make-up win after a buzzy snub the year prior), but Ron Cephas Jones got in over him (a surprise repeat for a performance/character that hasn’t been super relevant in years). This season was not received very well, not even close to as well as episodes like San Junipero or USS Callister. Even with big names like Anthony Mackie and Miley Cyrus, the hype was minimal, and whatever hype was there died in the 14 months from premiere to ceremony. Granted, Bad Education didn’t have a ton of hype either, but it had the critical acclaim and (as much as I hate to say it) snob quality that Black Mirror lacked this season.

    I think that Black Mirror would have put up more of fight since it is more clear that it actually is the brand to which it is attached (Black Mirror) as opposed to an offshoot (A Breaking Bad Movie), but El Camino‘s haul of three nominations gave it enough grounds to beat Bad Education if it really had it in it. The shortest answer though is that Black Mirror and El Camino would have split the lazy vote. The passion vote for Bad Education was not about to lose support to Black Mirror.

    We’ve forgot to mention the obvious one.

    Zendaya has done what Sarah Michelle Gellar, Keri Russell, Katherine Langford, Chris Colfer and Claire Danes failed to do and won an acting award for playing a teenager in a young adult show.

    I was actually wondering if Zendaya was the first to win for playing a teen. Gosh, she broke a lot of ceilings with that win! Youngest ever winner and first teenage winning character.

    Who knows how many younger actors and shows could have been recognised by now if the Emmys weren’t so snobby. Sarah Michelle Gellar should have won multiple statues for her turn on Buffy. It’s insane to think Gellar was 19 years old in the first season of that show. Tremendous actor. Katherine Langford was obviously snubbed due to the defeaning criticism her show received which is sad because she really deserved it. Although I think her costar Dylan Minnette got done even dirtier with snubs for all 4 seasons.

    This line reading alone from S1 finale should’ve won her the Emmy

    BuffyDie

    As higher 13RW got over the shark, Minette fantastically kept the show together in his shoulders.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar should have the record for amount of Emmy wins in that category!

    Stephen Williams is the unsung hero of Lost.  He was a producing director for five years and was never nominated for directing at the Emmys or DGA.  He was mostly freelance last decade.  He did the episode that finally got The Americans into writing, featuring the criminally-snubbed guest spot by Lois Smith.  The next year, he directed Viola Davis’s tape from the second season that was upset.  The year after that, he directed Thandie Newton’s tape from the first season that was also upset.  You could say that this bodes poorly for Jean Smart.

    His curse (of directing the submitted tapes of acting frontrunners who get upset) indeed claimed its third victim.
