    I would love for For All Mankind to happen. I feel this year would be its best shot, where old shows are in consideration basically just because they are familiar, and not because they’ve delivered their best seasons, and new shows were watched by a lot of people but aren’t exactly critically acclaimed.

    My question is though: Has anyone here watched or decided they will watch the show since it started to garner buzz? Cause if users here haven’t, I can’t imagine voters would. Everyone is just acknowledging that people that watched it love it, but it’s not attracting new viewers I feel.

    I hope it does…at least a direction nod. It deserves acting awards and a best drama series nod though. It following The Americans path would be great, but this one jumps around in years each season; it works for The crown cause that show is a behemoth, but I’m afraid it might hinder FAM chances in the acting categories.

    I feel like For All Mankind is building buzz slowly. Anecdotally, I’ve seen a few of my facebook friends talk about it and I didn’t see that at all during its first season. But I’m not sure it’ll get strong enough in time for nominations even though I think it’s far more deserving than some other drama contenders. Ultimately though, I think it’ll only get below the line nominations.

    To be fair most people here (including me) only started watching Schitt’s Creek after it surprisingly received its first noms so…

    Yeah, Gold Derby disproportionately watches stuff with built-in pedigree like Run over organic hits like Unorthodox. Will binge For All Mankind next week for interviews.

    Made for Love was a mess, but Cristin was at the top of her game, unlike Weaver who was well, she tried.

    Part of the purpose of these awards is to provide visibility for these shows to breakthrough. Hence why sometimes you’ll see something like Stranger Things get a release in July. The show doesn’t need awards to help it in visibility because it’s already the most popular show on the planet.

    I don’t think I would have known that Schitt’s CreekThe Marvelous Mrs. MaiselThe Great or Pen15 existed if they hadn’t broken through at the Emmys and with other awards bodies. And I think that’s pretty much the same with most people, whether they’re in the industry or are users on forums like these or are just the average viewing household. Part of why Succession and Watchmen maxed out last year or why Killing Eve did so well last year is because of their awards breakthroughs. Whether that’s Succession‘s Globe and BAFTA wins or its Writing win for season 1 or Killing Eve‘s BAFTA sweep. Each of these shows built up their bases from garnering visibility from all this awards success.

    In my opinion, For All Mankind has sufficient buzz and acclaim for writers to nominate in a weak year, not to mention that Apple is probably pushing it. The same group nominated the likes of Catastrophe, UnReal, Pen15, and American Vandal.

    Apple was ready to push The Mosquito Coast, but since it bombed, I’m sure they can turn all their forces into For All Mankind.

    I liked Made for Love (and also Run lol)!

    It will pop up in some categories at me personal awards.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I started watching Arrested Development after it won Outstanding Comedy Series back in 2004. I started watching The Office after it won Outstanding Comedy Series back in 2006. I watched The Crown after John Lithgow’s sweep of awards and also word of mouth
