    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.

    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.

    Probably one of Ramy or The Great. My gut says Ramy.

    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.

    Weird how 4/6 shows they nominated missed Series.

    I think it was Black-ish. That Tracee Ellis Ross nomination is very telling.

    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.

    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?
