    Yeah, Bridgerton in particular is still massive.

    I agree that trying to argue Euphoria isn’t popular with a high number of people is a futile exercise.

    Zendaya in particular, is very, very popular (My elder millennial brain doesn’t always understand how she got to be so disproportionately popular, but it’s a fact)

    But to draw a Venn Diagram, the age crossover of who it’s popular with and the average academy voter isn’t very high. I  suspect it has some regional, LA based advantage despite skewing so young (particularly compared to Thrones), and Zendaya’s getting a bigger piece of the pie because she has a movie career that expands up to people who are older.

    I think it’s also being lost in this conversation that Zendaya didn’t just win the Emmy because she and the show are mega-popular, she won because her performance was really damn good!

    FYC: Pamela Adlon (Better Things) Rose Byrne (Physical) Danielle Deadwyler (Station Eleven) Elle Fanning (The Great) Luke Kirby (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) Hamish Linklater (Midnight Mass) Margaret Qualley (Maid) Renee Rapp (The Sex Lives of College Girls) Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets) Heléne Yorke (The Other Two)

    I don’t think the Emmys should just be about Prestige and Quality. Then it just becomes a $$$$ / snobbery race. I think they should go with the show that represents the moment in time best and that people connect to / are immersed in.

    That’s all well and good that you would like to see that, but the Television Academy awards Emmys to recognise artistic and technical merit, and overall excellence, in television programming.

    Bill Hader and Barry in everything (2 babka)
    The Great - Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and comedy writing and directing

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.

    The qualifier here is “just”. I think both are important for the relevancy of the awards going forward. I know they lean towards the former but I still think their choices tend to reflect both.

    Can I ask what others are feeling on supporting actress right now? i.e, if you had an unlimited ballot, who would you personally feel strongly enough about to nominate (as opposed to who you think will get nominated)?

    If it is, I’m done. I enjoy This Is Us. It’s a great show and I’m sure there are a ton of amazing people who work on it. All the respect, truly. But in my personal opinion, if the Emmy’s are actually about choosing the best, most prestigious, highest quality show, then Succession, Severance, Pachinko or Ozark should win.

    The final season of This Is Us is much better than Ozark’s. Y’all precious IMDb scores indicate that aswell.

    Sydney Sweeney, Euphoria
    Julia Garner, Ozark
    Jung Ho-yeon, Squid Game
    Sarah Snook, Succession
    Chrissy Metz, This Is Us
    Susan Kelechi Watson, This Is Us
    Samantha Hanratty, Yellowjackets
    Christina Ricci, Yellowjackets
    Sophie Thatcher, Yellowjackets

    (I don’t watch Better Call Saul. Still need to watch Pachinko and The Morning Show s2. Only a few episodes into Severance, Arquette hasn’t swept me away yet but I’m sure she will later on. Honestly not impressed enough with Smith-Cameron to nominate her. Hunter Schafer would be on this list if her material in Euphoria s2 had been as good as last year’s special episode.)

    FYC: Pamela Adlon (Better Things) Rose Byrne (Physical) Danielle Deadwyler (Station Eleven) Elle Fanning (The Great) Luke Kirby (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) Hamish Linklater (Midnight Mass) Margaret Qualley (Maid) Renee Rapp (The Sex Lives of College Girls) Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets) Heléne Yorke (The Other Two)

    Sarah Snook, Succession
    Sophie Thatcher, Yellowjackets
    Yuh-Jung Youn, Pachinko

    Note: Stranger Things hasn’t aired it’s new season yet, so Millie Bobby Brown isn’t on this list else she’d almost certainly be in it.

    Severance could have been 6 episodes instead of 9 and maybe would have been as good as you try to make it sound.

    Imagine being this wrong and confident about it. It’s like listening to a QAnoner.

    I am not offended, but I am amused. You are such a fan boy, you are not able to be objective. I adore Severance and I want it to win writing versus Succession. But I am able to be truthful. I was never bored with the show, but episodes 1-6 are slow and repetitive, the plot of Devon and Ricken is not good, they have zero chemistry, they do not make sense as a couple and the scenes with their friends were pure cringe, not funny at all. The duality of Harmony was a big fail as well, her hysteria after they fire her was funny, not dramatic as it was meant to be. You can love the show and give it 10 on IMDB (like I did) and still recognize that is not a perfect show. Also, there is not denying that episodes 7-9 are far better than the rest, of course, this is also due to the build up, but the pace changes completely.

    Yeah, I am that kind of an Academy member 😀

    Patricia Arquette and Fiona Shaw are not bad, but neither made a good impression due to bad characterization and bad script accordingly. J. Smith-Cameron, Christine Baranski (Gilded Age), Hunter Schafer and Barbie Ferreira are good, but didn’t have enough to do, nomination for either one of them would be ridiculous. I would not be mad about Schafer though, she deserves it for the prior season and she had several good scenes this season.

    I have yet to see Yellowjackets, Pachinko, Yellowstone and the new season of Stranger Things.
