    Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce modeled Not Yet, their season two finale for One Day at a Time, on another beloved Norman Lear creation. In the classic episode of Maude, Maude Bares Her Soul, Bea Arthur spent 25 minutes sharing her feelings with a therapist who was never seen on screen.

    For this episode, each cast member has a monologue while sitting by the hospital bed of a comatose Rita Moreno. The emotion builds to a deeply moving moment with lead actress Justina Machado saying her farewell and climbing into bed with her mother. This leads to an unexpected visitor. Moreno greets the spirit of her late husband in a beautiful gown, and they dance together.

    Energy runs high, and the emotionally-charged roar from the studio audience only emphasizes the power of the script.

    If you find that your post is deleted, it’s because you gave more than one episode title. DELETED for not following his one and only request.

    The Good Place: “Dance Dance Resoloution”

    +1. That’s my choice, too. Nice to be able to enjoy a show that has 3/4ths of its season have terrific episodes that you wind up with a headache trying to whittle it down to just one. 🙂

    Not Yet from One Day at a Time truly deserves it. It was seriously one of the most emotional episodes of television (comedy or drama) of the year, and it still had a lot of laughs. Justina Machado’s moment in the episode is other-worldly and a perfect example of great acting and writing coming together for a fantastic moment.

    Ahhh I love this part of Emmy season. Anyway, of those not already mentioned, please consider:

    “Episode 5.07” (aka the series finale) – Episodes

    FYC Gold Derby TV Awards: Michelle Dockery - Movie/Limited Series Actress. Claire Foy - Performer of the Year.

    The comedy field this cycle wouldn’t be complete without at least mentioning “Roseanne,” so I’ll do that here. They’ll probably submit the season premiere, which I think is good but overly broad. This episode is both sharper and funnier with a stellar, Emmy-worthy guest turn from Estelle Parsons.

    ROSEANNE: “No Country for Old Women”

    Considering that Atlanta should be safe and You’re the Worst has zero chances:

    The Trolley Problem, The Good Place (or whatever episode they submit)

    I still can’t believe I’m the only one so far to mention Rick and Morty on this thread. No animated television show has ever been nominated for a Writing Emmy in spite of being eligible. If any animated show has ever been genuinely and undeniably deserving of such a prestigious nomination, it is surely a season of television as perfectly executed as Rick and Morty Season 3.

    Eh, season 3 was the weakest for the show and BoJack Horseman and Big Mouth would be more worthy of that distinction this season.

    WOW, I thought Season 3 was by far the best so far, the most consistently funny and imaginative, the darkest, the most emotionally affecting, the most intellectually ambitious, the best-paced and consistently engaging in regards to its dialogue. I thought Bojack had some great episodes like Time’s Arrow, Stupid Piece of Shit, and my personal favorite The Old Sugarman Place, but I felt underwhelmed by it as a whole coming off the consistent excellence of Season 3, relatively speaking. I still have not watched Big Mouth. The thing is Rick and Morty wasn’t just the best animated program of the year, it was one of the best programs of any kind for the past year, deserving of inclusion on the same high bar as The Expanse and The Vietnam War. I know that it is the most deserving TV show that is animated for a Writing nomination, but I know it won’t get it due to people unfortunately disagreeing over what actually is the best written animated program.

    I know Atlanta is probably a lock for a nod, but I still can’t help recommend it.

    Teddy Perkins from Atlanta needs to be winning this award.
