This is actually a hard one, there’s an argument to be had for all of these outside of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
I’m going to say Ramy because of that Directing nomination. The Great seems relatively weaker given that Fanning was snubbed for Ellis Ross. I was about to say that Black-ish seemed weaker than Ramy given that it only hit in acting and tech categories, but it was able to manage a series nomination for 3 years with similar showings, so it’s a strong possibility.July 29, 2020 at 10:30 am #1203612547
Probably Ramy, but maybe The Great.July 29, 2020 at 10:36 am #1203612573
Probably Ramy, but maybe The Great.
I actually think had there been a 2% rule The Great could have gotten nominated for Series because I think it can do exactly what Succession did last year and win Writing.

I would risk The Great because of the nominations in Directing and Writing.July 29, 2020 at 11:11 am #1203612649
Probably one of Ramy or The Great. My gut says Ramy.July 29, 2020 at 11:27 am #1203612712
It was too soon for The Great to break out with its late release and young cast. I only had it in writing because of comedy directing’s bias toward series nominees. Ramy on the other hand had its stage set and it still missed writing. I expect it to contract like Better Call Saul and This is Us did after capitalizing on the open field last year. Voted black-ish.July 29, 2020 at 11:40 am #1203612756
Black-ish was snubbed.July 29, 2020 at 11:55 am #1203612783
I think it was Black-ish. That Tracee Ellis Ross nomination is very telling.July 29, 2020 at 11:57 am #1203612804

The Great was only nominated for its pilot, right? I liked the pilot a lot, but I had to quit the show after episode 4. The show was too weird for me. Which is odd, because I loved The Favourite. I think Black-ish was probably 9th.July 29, 2020 at 2:32 pm #1203613381
Voted black-ish since it’s the only show that overperformed out of these.
One thing to note about The Great and Ramy is that the former had 3 submissions in Directing (and 1 Writing) and got in both. Ramy had 1 Directing and 2 Writing submissions; would love to hear people’s theories about why it missed there. Did The Great simply submit more strategically, or was it actually stronger?Not now
