    Personally, I would like to single out Brett Goldstein, Ted Lasso (“Tan Lines”). His writing was very cool and interesting for me. I even wrote a review of his work using APA citations. For me, he is a real genius. I hope that someday I will be able to write just like him.

    I think the Pose finale can happen in writing. The competition is very dire.

    Absolutely!

    The show could very well have been in 12th/13th all this time and it also helps that the writers branch has tended to be quite sentimental in their choices in that category as of late. Entirely within the realms of possibility.

    Writing for a Drama Series 1. Peter Morgan, The Crown (“Fairytale”) 2. Dave Filoni, The Mandalorian (“Chapter 13 : The Jedi”) 3. Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian (“Chapter 16 : The Rescue”) 4. Rick Famuyiwa, The Mandalorian (“Chapter 15 : The Believer”) 5. Eric Kripke, The Boys (“The Big Ride”) 6. Rebecca Sonnenshine, The Boys (“What I Know”) 7. Craig Rosenberg, The Boys (“Over the Hill with the Swords of a Thousand Men”)

    I, in no way, see this lineup with 3 nominations each for The Boys and The Mandalorian.

    It’s wild to me that Pose has never been nominated in Writing before. In Season 2 alone, there’s so many episodes that are just beautifully written. I hope we see it make a dent here for this last season.

    FYC:
    Emmy: Ego Nwodim ("SNL"), Nico Santos ("Superstore"), Lolly Adefope ("Shrill"), MJ Rodriguez ("Pose")
    BAFTA: Leila Farzad ("I Hate Suzie")

    I know this is unpopular but whilst I thought it certainly was nomination worthy, I didn’t enjoy season 2 so much.

    Season 1 should have swept though.

    I hear that The Flight Attendant is only submitting writer Steve Yockey and director Susanna Fogel.  Perry Mason is submitting its creators and both of its directors.

    I assume this means both the writing and directing submission will be the pilot.

    I hope so, it has been singled out as being great in every reviews so far. It’s also 90min long.

    Shouldn’t The Good Lord Bird be at least top 10 for Writing? It got into WGA (I know it was a weak field but still) and I feel that writers would give more support for it other than Wandavision

    I have it 11th. Until the reviews for Halston are lifted I currently have it inter-changeable with that (Hollywood making it into WGA in the weak field tells me that if Halston is better received that it stands a chance at breaking in).

    I do think whilst things might look grim for it, The Good Lord Bird is a dark horse to get nominated in Writing. My only qualm with the show is that it failed to make a dent at the winter awards and It’s a Sin and WandaVision have so much buzz for their writing (especially the 9th episode of WandaVision which essentially trended on Twitter because of the writing of a certain quote from the episode). Small Axe made it in to the equivalent BAFTA category over Normal People so that’s a testament to its possible strength and whilst I’m largely sceptical of its chances, Mare of Easttown does seem to have some buzz for its writing.

    To cut a long story short after the first 3 I listed, I do think anything can happen in Writing (apart from The Undoing lol) and yes that does include The Good Lord Bird. The AFI nod makes me feel confident that at least Hawke is making it in.
