    I wonder if The Handmaid’s Tale could make a comeback in directing like Homeland did for season 4.

    I have realized drama writing is such an open race that I’m throwing the episode “Pizza” from Servant there. I think this year voters will be more likely to see and acknowledge a wide array of Apple Tv+ shows.

    Drama Writing is indeed wide open. I feel like we’ll get a passion pick like Servant or Hate Suzie or P-Valley etc that slips in over the big series contenders. At the moment I’m currently betting on Suzie but I do think the other two have strong chances as well.

    Outside of The CrownThe Boys and The Mandalorian anything can happen.

    Also, I know it has never been nominated in these categories before but Pose should definitely get in under these circumstances. The competition was completely different the past two years and even if it didn’t enter at least it was certainly a legitimate contender.

    The only shows I feel confident not predicting are those that missed WGA this year and The Handmaid’s Tale. In the latter’s case I anticipate it will be like Maisel or The Good Wife where the writers drop it but don’t return to it until they feel sentimental about it.

    Or they just double/triple down on those three like the comedy races did with Veep, Silicon Valley & Atlanta.

    Possible but that depends on how many episodes The Boys submits. The Mandalorian can only submit thrice, The Crown will only submit once and whilst The Boys could of course submit six times, they could only submit the show runner and the standout episode.

    That leaves at least one slot left up for grabs.

    Not impossible, however the show needs a big name like Lesli Linka Glatter to be namechecked.

    I had no idea Julian Jarrold was a previous Emmy nominee and a six time BAFTA nominee. Considering the awards strength of The Crown and the fact he directed the most visually memorable episode of this season (Terra Nullius) I’d say he’ll probably get the nomination.

    What should be interesting is what The Mandalorian submits. I assume they’ll submit multiple directors like they did last time but if let’s say both shows get 3 nominations in directing then what wins? Does Bridgerton win or do we have aa situation like last year where the directors showcase of the drama series frontrunner (in this case The Crown) wins?

    Netflix are just submitting 1 Big Mouth episode (4×06 “Nick Starr”) to Comedy Writing this year. They’ve always done 2-3 episodes for the show, clearly they’ve saw a opening, along with the show’s rising profile and decided to take it.

    @9 Riley what would you say Mare of Easttown‘s chances in either writing and directing are?

    I doubt that there is enough passion, kind of like Sharp Objects.
