    I don’t think Apple will submit more than one episode for Ted Lasso. They were very strategic last year, only submitting one episode in each category for almost all of their big shows. They submitted twice in directing for Dickinson, but one of those was Lynn Shelton. And it worked out for them well with the surprise TMS directing nod, so I doubt they’ll triple-submit Ted Lasso when it means they’d be in danger of losing.

    Didn’t Riley mention somewhere that they were only focusing on Make Rebecca Great Again? Similar to them only doing the The Interview for TMS last year

    I have Ted Lasso getting three nominations at the moment in each of writing and directing admittedly because I am struggling to fill slots but also because I was quite shocked by how the pilot was nominated by WGA but not Make Rebecca Great Again. So I assumed they would submit the pilot (considering Lawrence co-wrote it and he’s the show runner), Make Rebecca Great Again (the standout) and Tan Lines in Writing.

    I think Riley said Apple focusing on Make Rebecca Great Again was speculation although that does seem like a strong possibility. If they only submit Make Rebecca Great Again then they’re easily winning Comedy Writing.
