    Am I the only one who really doesn’t see Bridgerton getting a nomination this year? That felt like a COVID thing.

    I’m not super secure in predicting it (I waffle between it and This Is Us in that eighth slot most days), but there’s a few reasons I think it’ll just slide in:

    1) Below the Line Support: As we’ve seen in the past, this can often be a big deciding factor that pushes a show over the line. It did very well at the Creative Emmy nominations last year, and there’s no reason to believe it’ll lose that support this time.

    2) Massive Viewership: This show is HUGELY popular, apparently even more so than Stranger Things. We’ll have to see if Bridgerton’s S2 record is broken by ST in a few days, but either way, it’s pulling crazy numbers. If we’re counting that as a plus for Squid Game, ST, and even Euphoria, we have to here as well.

    3) Improved Reception: This season dropped a few points on Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes, which is curious because the general public consensus (at least as far as I’ve gathered) has been more positive with the second season, and this has been reflected in audience scores:

    IMDB EPISODE RATING AVERAGE
    S1: 7.6
    S2: 8.025

    METACRITIC USER SCORE
    S1: 5.9
    S2: 7.2

    ROTTEN TOMATOES AUDIENCE SCORE
    S1: 72%
    S2: 80%

    Granted, these aren’t huge bumps, but enough to show that on the whole, viewers like this season more than last. (Personally, I hadn’t even started Bridgerton until the second season dropped and everyone started clamoring over it much more than the first season, as more than a guilty pleasure.)

    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)

    Love, love, love that you have Severance in for writing! You don’t think Stiller is top 3 for directing the finale, though? It’s a tough one!

    I think it’s absolutely deserving and would personally give it to Severance, but Idk I just feel like Severance S1 will be more of a writers’ branch thing like Succession S1 was.

    Mandy Moore’s Interview for Gold Derby

    I cannot wait to finally be able to see this season over here. Every clip I’ve seen of hers is so great.

    I really would like her to be nominated.

    For the most part I agree with your rationale here. It’s not to me a top end contender, but it’s popularity, the better received season, and the BTL support make me think it’ll sneak in (perhaps just for series).

    On a certain level last year, the Rege-Jean Page infatuation was dragging the discourse down. That’s not a slight on Page, but the way it was covered was so flighty.

    (I do however suspect the viewership for the show swerves more European than it does American, though it’s clearly plenty popular in America).

    Mandy Moore’s Interview for Gold Derby

    I’m curious to see if she’s gonna do the full campaigning trail like THR roundtable or Actor on Actor, which she has never done before

    I think if NBC is savvy, it will recognise the opportunity they have at their hands and might really push Mandy Moore (who knows we might see her do the THR roundtable and even more). And if she does gets nominated, I won’t be surprised if NBC steps up it’s campaigning game and do something similar to what FX did for MJ Rodriguez, that is, extensive campaigning (unlike Rodriguez, the only actress Moore has to compete who’s show is top 5 is Linney who’s character isn’t Academy friendly). If they are clever, they will focus on “last chance” and “under rewarded”.

    Except for a few exceptions, thr round table is a bunch of also rans. Mandy probably smart to sit this one out.

    Mandy is going on tour from 6/10 – 7/24 so she’ll be newly available to do a lot of campaigning for the win if she is indeed nominated. She’s definitely peaking at the right time. I’ve never been more confident in her getting nominated.

    I think the nomination is the bigger hurdle for Mandy Moore than the win.
