    5. We Are Who We Are (HBO)

    Probably ineligible no? Its first three episodes aired in the US before the eligibility period.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    5 episodes aired in the eligibility period and the minimum required is 3, so I think it’s elegible. However they were probably elegible last year which means they are not anymore this year since this category is only for New Series, so yeah, I guess they are ineligible. Thanks haha.

    Waiting to see which category Only Murders in the Building lands in (i.e. what its run time is) before predicting it.

    BREAKTHROUGH SERIES – UNDER 40 MINUTES

    1. Hacks (HBO Max)
    2. Reservation Dogs (FX on Hulu)
    3. Blindspotting (Starz)
    4. The Chair (Netflix)
    5. WandaVision (Disney+)

    6. Heels (Starz)
    7. Girls5Eva (Peacock)
    8. We Are Lady Parts (Peacock)
    9. Starstruck (HBO Max)
    10. A Teacher (FX on Hulu)

    BREAKTHROUGH SERIES – OVER 40 MINUTES

    1. The Queen’s Gambit (Netflix)*
    2. Scenes From a Marriage (HBO)
    3. The White Lotus (HBO)
    4. Mare of Easttown (HBO)
    5. The Underground Railroad (Amazon)

    6. Invincible (Prime Video)
    7. It’s a Sin (HBO Max)
    8. The Good Lord Bird (Showtime)
    9. Dr. Death (Peacock)
    10. Cruel Summer (Freeform)

    OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE IN A NEW SERIES

    1. Thuso Mbedu, The Underground Railroad
    2. Ethan Hawke, The Good Lord Bird
    3. Jean Smart, Hacks
    4. Kate Winslet, Mare of Easttown
    5. Renee Elise Goldsberry, Girls5Eva

    6. Jessica Chastain, Scenes From a Marriage
    7. Jennifer Coolidge, The White Lotus
    8. Oscar Isaac, Scenes From a Marriage
    9. Anya Taylor-Joy, The Queen’s Gambit
    10. Kate Mara, A Teacher

    *Whilst it looks like it has an expensive VFX budget, I am guessing The Queen’s Gambit is eligible here and it’s budget isn’t that high because none of the actors really had that much star power prior to the show and a lot of the show’s international locations were shot on sets.

    Heels is a half hour drama? I thought it would be like P Valley or something.

    There is no budget criteria here, even WandaVision is eligible 🙂

    But they do prefer shows that most represent independent filmmaking.

    I for some reason thought it was gonna be a comedy, so I putted on my Half-Hour predictions, however earlier a friend of mine came say to me that Heels is a drama. I’m going to update my predictions soon.

    Non-american shows are not eligible BTW guys!

    Here’s the official rule:

    Foreign television production is only eligible if it is the result of a co-production (both financially and creatively) between U.S. and foreign partners and with a purpose to be shown to U.S audiences in the same eligibility year.

    Oh wait I forgot Small Axe is eligible here still…

    Non-american shows are not eligible BTW guys! Here’s the official rule:

    Only I Hate Suzie and Lupin are ineligible by this rule. Shows like It’s a Sin, Starstruck, We Are Lady Parts should still make eligibility because they’re co-productions.

    Shows like It’s a Sin, Starstruck, We Are Lady Parts should still make eligibility because they’re co-productions.

    How so? I can’t find anything proving that they are.

    STARSTRUCK: IMDb says it was only produced by Avalon Television/UK.

    WE ARE LADY PARTS: IMDb says it was produced by Working Title Television/UK. Peacock is only a distributor.

    IT’S A SIN: IMDb says it was produced by Red Production Company/UK.

    Since the rules require BOTH financially and creatively involvement, I don’t think these shows are eligible.

    Unless they’ve changed the rules from last year the fact each of them are HBO Max/Peacock co-productions which should be enough. Just last year I May Destroy You won here and it was co-financed by HBO even though it was produced by a British production company.

    Update: It’s a Sin is indeed eligible, I think, since it was eligible at the Emmys and they have the same rules.

    I agree, I’m just unsure if that they are actually co-producing or just distributing.
