    OMG! I don’t know how I forgot about Pose. “Never Knew Love Like This Before” is brilliant acting wise, but “Butterfly/Cocoon” and “In My Heels” are far better submissions writing wise.

    Agree that both those eppys definitely should’ve been submitted! Still, “NKLLTB” was chosen as the sole writing submission for Pose and would make a worthy nominee imo.

    In that case, “Never Knew Love Like This Before” is the perfect submission. By the way, where did you learn it was chosen as the sole writing submission? Would you please provide a link?

    I don’t know if it’s what they’re submitting but: Tern Haven, Succession

    They will probably submit the pilot episode since it’s the one who deservedly got in WGA Awards even though in episodic comedy. But it’s a perfect blend of black comedy and southern gothic surrealism. Shifting between these genres could be off-putting but the writing embraces its weirdness effortlessly, setting the tone for a series that’s unlike anything on TV this season. Please consider:

    Great to hear this. The pilot is the best representation of the series. Would you know if the WGA voting body is somehow a close representation of the TV Academy? I think Writing isn’t as competitive this year outside The Crown, Succession, Better Call Saul and possibly The Handmaid’s Tale, so I’m hoping this episode could get in but one of the hurdles I see is it’s switch to Drama, not to mention, the popularity of the show among Academy members.

    The WGA voting body is representative of the Emmy writers’ branch, but the episodic WGA category in which On Becoming a God in Central Florida was nominated is not representative of the WGA voting body because it was decided by a panel. This is how you have shows like The OA nominated in the WGA episodic categories, whereas the WGA series categories that are voted on by the general WGA membership are almost exclusively Emmy series and writing nominees.

    Thank you and noted. That also explains why The Leftovers has been snubbed by the Emmys despite getting in WGA episodic twice.

    I’m not sure what episode/s they’re submitting, but really anything from Pose – Ideally ‘In My Heels’
