    Fully agree on this one. Kieran is great, but Matthew Macfadyen really knocked it out of the park this season. Both comedic and tragic at the same time, which is a really hard balance.

    Really upset that Strong and Snook were left out of the Globe noms. Strong gives arguably one of the best performances on television today, and Snook is magnetic as Shiv. Really hoping season two resonates with the Emmys next year.

    If Cox gets the SAG nod this week, then his Emmy nomination should be assured. All I’m predicting is him and Ensemble Drama. That will have to be enough to carry Strong, Snook, and Culkin along to next year. Strong might be able to get in with Cox, but Snook isn’t getting into lead actress. Culkin should be fine with all the open slots, unless everything’s going to “The Crown” and “THT.” If Macfadyen makes it in, watch out. That shows voters are actually watching and this show has some legs.

    Apparently, the third season is set to premiere August-October 2020.

    Didn’t expect the complete SAG shutout. DISGUSTING. Series, directing, writing, and Cox should still be fine for the Emmys, but now I wonder about any other acting nods. Culkin may benefit from the paucity of supporting actor drama contenders, but the rest of them? The lack of consensus as already mentioned will be a problem moving forward, as well as category placement issues.

    I still think the show will have a big impact on next year’s Emmys, but it is a little bit odd how it is not fully embraced in “acting” awards.

    I mean, both important HBO dramas have this problem. Emmy’s campaing for Succession and Watchmen (here situation is even worse), is going to be interesting next year.

    It’ll get the nominations it got last year and at least one acting nom, I’m pretty sure of that… but that’s not the showing I would hope for. It would be great to see it get a buzz boost from a CC or GG win.

    I have a couple of issues with Kieran Culkin as a contender. First is that I think that he is one of those Christian Slater types who are disproportionately liked by the Golden Globes because of his long celebrity. The other is that I think actual fans of the show prefer Matthew Macfadyen’s more restrained work.

    I think once again this show will not get a single acting nomination. It is clear to me that the actors are not watching it. Last year it was shutout by SAG and couldn’t even get Cromwell for a wide open category and a deserving performance. It was once again shut out by SAG for the season’s most acclaimed drama, signaling to me that the show still has no visibility among actors. It also does not help that there is no consensus among VIP’s. I will predict this to do well in other categories while not being nominated for a single acting nomination.

    It can get one or two with the emptier categories – voters are sheep and if Cox for example wins at the globes, he can carry that to an Emmy nomination (unlike Madden because the show is stronger than Bodyguard was). But this definitely confirmed that Snook is a complete pipedream.

    For Your Consideration:

    I May Destroy You in all categories
    (especially Michaela Coel in Lead Actress and Writing)

    I am not so sure that it is going to do better than last year actually—or if it will even match it. It will get into series again, it already won writing, it is not going to win directing for Mark Mylod if Adam McKay could not win, it lost casting when it faced a lesser competitor than The Crown and it is not going to be eligible for theme music this time. Its best hopes below the line are the more broad-based fields of picture editing and sound mixing, but both relevant guilds just snubbed it again. Contemporary costumes and production design are also possibilities, but those guilds just snubbed it too.

    I think it might not even receive a directing nomination. Does anyone think directing is the standout aspect of the show like how its writing is praised?

    It was for me under Adam McKay, but he is long gone from the director’s chair. It should be safe though and I could see it doubling up this season to continue the Silicon Valley parallels (although Silicon Valley was also dominant below the line and that is not happening here).

    Aren’t we giving too much credit to SAG, though? I’m more worried about not airing new episodes during the nominations voting period.

    I’m still confident in its Emmy prospects in 2020 tbh. I still have it winning Writing again and probably Series + Directing regardless of the acting weirdness going on right now. I have to admit, I haven’t seen the third season of The Crown, this shows only real competition imo.

    Directing is as great as the Writing in my opinion, watch “Tern Haven” and “Safe Room”. Both deserving of Directing wins.
