I think Linney and Oh only win an Emmy for their performances if their shows sweep for their final seasons (which looks more likely in Linney’s case than Oh’s despite both seeming unlikely).
Aniston probably is winning for her second season and Colman (unless we get serious competition) is probably winning next year considering how her the competition of new shows seem to be non-existent.

I think it’s way too soon to make any predictions as such. Or did anyone think Zendaya would win an Emmy a year ago? I don’t think so.September 24, 2020 at 9:29 am #1203731834
I truly believe what hurt Linney the most is she had no narrative, there was no rush to give her a fifth emmy right now especially against her competition. Therefore, I believe she won’t be competitive until the last part of Ozark, she isn’t winning for 4A, imo.September 24, 2020 at 9:32 am #1203731839

It was a more wish-dicting than predicting but a few people did last year.September 24, 2020 at 9:34 am #1203731843
Yup, precisely that. It’s what I said in our Emmy pre-show! Everyone, sans Jodie, had some kind of outside narrative that could have helped them, while Laura became the frontrunner because of her performance only. Unfortunately, you need more than just that. Voters either reward you early on, at the end, or not at all. That’s a new trend I have seen (for which there are, of course, exceptions).September 24, 2020 at 9:43 am #1203731852
I don’t think Zendaya had a narrative. Unless you’re thinking the narrative is the shock of how she managed to break the stereotypes around her acting and the snobbery with her performance (which can also be applied to Aniston as well).
On a separate note whilst I know no one (apart from the accountants) know who came second but I really think it was Aniston and not Linney who was second. To me the fact that Crudup benefitted from a Succession vote split is the equivalent of Maria Schrader benefitting from a Watchmen vote split showing Unorthodox was second in Series.

Zendaya had the breakthrough glow and the surprise factor (just like Jodie last year).September 24, 2020 at 10:18 am #1203731934
Also when it came to nominees she had the biggest support from fellow actors online when announced.September 24, 2020 at 11:07 am #1203732051
All of those shows that tried to dodge the hurricane that was Game of Thrones last year ended up flopping even harder this year. It’s so funny to me. Like… Duffer Brother 1 and Duffer Brother 2, ya’ll could’ve just gave us the season, dodged the tsunami that was Succession this year, compete next year when it’s a bit less competitive for your fourth season. They may not have won much but they probably wouldn’t have lost so much ground in nominations. Same goes for at least one of The Handmaid‘s Tale, Big Little Lies, The Crown etc.
I mean, I don’t blame them for trying to strategize and avoid GOT to have a better chance at winning. No one expected the last season of GOT to drop in quality so much and crash and burn with that finale as much as it did. Plus, no one would’ve also expected Succession’s meteoric rise (I’m actually kinda surprised it won as much as it did in the end, considering it literally aired more than a year ago).
Like you said, they all probably would have benefitted from just releasing their seasons instead of holding onto them just to avoid GOT but it’s something we can say in hindsight. (honestly, most things can be said in hindsight so it might seem “obvious” but you never really know)September 24, 2020 at 11:45 am #1203732120

I agree but I wouldn’t say it was a narrative. Or if it was then I would say all the winners since Viola (including Jodie and Tatiana) had a narrative.

And I would agree.
Yeah sorry I was just clarifying.
The question for next year is if Olivia gets a final season narrative in the same way Foy did. Because then I think the race is more or less over if Aniston and Linney are also not returning (as Zendaya, Comer and Oh already aren’t as we know).September 24, 2020 at 12:40 pm #1203732210
