    “And Just Like That” (HBO Max) 

    No. (Case in point, a much better reboot season of Will & Grace missed.)

    Was just looking at the Netflix FYC site and realized Sex Education isn’t even there anymore? Have they decided not to submit it? Anyone know if it’s a glitch, or if something else is going on?

    I think they’re submitting it to the International Emmys instead.

    That makes sense. Well I hope they can get it nominated! The Emmys snubbing it twice over was criminal.

    Though it is a little funny that it bounced from being forced into Drama, switching to Comedy, and then not even being submitted at all. Watch season 4 be an anthology and get submitted in Limited.

    If Hacks is taking series and actress I really struggle to see how Hannah Einbinder doesn’t come along for the ride after that finale. This race aside it’s almost impossible to not think about Ava as a character (and in part Einbinder’s characterisation) once you finish the season and if Hacks ends up having strong enough momentum to go all the way, she should be able to come along for the ride just like the last three winners in this category did. It helps her that consensus is split amongst the Ted Lasso and Abbott Elementary women and that Borstein, Goldberg and McKinnon all have greater hurdles than advantages.

    Didn’t Sex Education try submitting in drama in the first season too? I feel like I remember them doing something silly like that.

    It’s unfortunately missed its chance at the Emmys which is too bad since it’s better than half of the nominees and even the winners of some years in my opinion.

    When Orange is the New Black was nominated in comedy for its first season (which if I’m not mistaken generated a fair amount of controversy at the time) the TV Academy put in a mechanism that required every 45 minute/hour long piece that wanted to submit in comedy and every half hour that wanted to submit in drama to petition. Sex Education was originally being submitted in comedy by Netflix for its first season but due to being an hour long show had to petition but the Television Academy rejected its petition and so it competed in drama for its first season (Netflix later appealed which hence got it moved back into comedy from its second season onwards). Other shows were also moved when that mechanism was still in place (it was abolished for this awards cycle) including On Becoming a God in Central Florida which I found kind of shocking when I saw it recently because I found it much more comedic than a lot of these top contenders from these last three years.

    I wonder had they kept the mechanism in place if shows like Julia and Somebody Somewhere would have been moved to drama.

    On Becoming a God in Central Florida was such an under watched and underrated gem. It had two win worthy performances in season one but no shot at a nomination. One of the bigger COVID cancellations.

    It had two win worthy performances in that pilot alone!

    So now the television cycle has wrapped up if you guys could choose 5 comedy performances you’ve seen from this cycle from performers who have never been nominated before that you would like to see get nominated this year, who would you nominate?

    My picks:

    “Hacks” and “Barry” have done a good job of accumulating the end of season buzz that should sufficiently challenge the season-long frontrunner status for “Ted Lasso.” Right now, I would say that I can see “Hacks” taking Series, Actress, Supporting Actress and Writing, “Barry” taking Actor and Directing, and “Ted Lasso” taking Supporting Actor. Unless “Ted Lasso” season 3 drops during voting (feels like we would have some indication by now if that were the case) or “OMITB” airing in the summer lends it any momentum, I can certainly see the main categories being split among those three shows, with “Abbott Elementary” sneaking a win in Actress or Writing as the only other major threat.
