    According to Deadline, Jennifer Coolidge will return in The White Lotus Season 2, playing the same character. So, The White Lotus is going to be Drama or Comedy?

    I actually think they’d be stronger than people think in comedy, however, it’s an hour so they’d have to argue their case, right?

    Eh, maybe it’s my sense of humor but it feels like a borderline comedy to me.

    Realizing the recently weak drama actor category could have Bartlett, Cox, Strong, and Odenkirk…and actress has, like, Anniston and Linney?

    Jennifer Aniston, Jodie Comer, Laura Linney, Sandra Oh and Zendaya are all returning nominees and previous winners Patricia Arquette, Christine Baranski and Elisabeth Moss are all going to be eligible for new shows (Baranski’s being on HBO).

    Sounds like a pretty exciting category tbh.

    Squid Game changed from drama to limited series on IMDB yesterday.

    Hmmm. I am pretty sure that’s not an easy change to make

    The only thing that makes us all define the White Lotus as a drama is its runtime. FWIW, there’s a case for Succession and Killing Eve to go comedy too. The line is way too thin these days, none of it matters.

    I think both Succession and Killing Eve are more comedic than The White Lotus tbh.
    At the beggining sure I guess, but it went real dark at the end.

    A good comparison would be Flight Attendant where the start is comedic, but it gets dramatic as it proceeds, but even then the lead was wrapped in a lot of “funny” situations (everything with Michelle Gomez).

    Remove the cursing and Succession could be right at home with ABC’s hour longs of mid the 2000s
    (Desperate Housewives, Pushing Daisies, Ugly Betty et al)

    That wouldn’t surprise me, but she’s not a lead. The entire cast should go supporting IMO. There is no lead on this show. They all have their separate storylines.

    I guess the question is where is it most competitive?

    Is it fine for them to go differently at SAG?

    So if Squid Game goes for limited, what does it mean for their awards chances?

    Also, does it mean there won’t be a second season?

    If Squid Game goes Limited,it’s really strong for a series nomination (or maybe even win). But I doubt it goes limited cause Netflix submitted it for Drama Ensemble at SAG.

    I guess, but it can definitely kill a show, like it did to Hill House or not like Watchmen.

    Who knows.

    I think it will end up going to drama given the SAG submission too, though that IMDB change was curious (and that sort of change I’ve noticed often pre-dates an announcement of similar at times). I think you could argue it might be somewhat more competitive with limited generally, but from a Netflix perspective I think they’d prefer to have it in drama as this is one of their (on paper) weaker years.
