    PBS was the last network other than HBO and FX to win the Limited Series Emmy in 2011 for “Downton Abbey,” which like “Big Little Lies,” should have competed in the Drama Series category because “Downton Abbey” was six seasons long and “Big Little Lies” aired its second season.

    So ridiculous that the show did not have enough episodes to qualify as a drama because PBS split the seven episodes across four broadcasts.

    I also wonder if “FX on Hulu” (which is how they’re branding “Mrs. America”)  counts as a Hulu win, FX win, or both.

    The academy ruled officially that they only count toward FX.

    Between her work in Big Little Lies, Morning Show, and Little Fires Everywhere, Reese deserves SOMETHING!!! I think I would prefer her to win for Little Fires Everywhere, just because I think she got to showcase a little more range with the role.

    I quite honestly want her to win something. Her work in the finale blew my socks off.

    I think she’s win worthy. I’ve been a fan for a while and she still found a way to floor me in that finale. Scary how lived in that performance was.

    Is it possible that Hulu’s Normal People might have a The Handmaid’s Tale scenario?

    1. Based on a critically acclaimed best-seller book.
    2. Oscar nominee Lenny Abrahamson directs the first six episodes.
    3. Has a current MC score of 90.
    4. Considering the popularity of the novel and the quarantine everyone might watch the show.

    I’m looking forward to watching it, but it’s definitely not possible lol.

    A day has passed and I haven’t stopped thinking about Witherspoon’s performance in that LFE finale. May I be so bold to say that it’s the best single-episode performance of the year so far? Watching a character completely fall apart, in not the prettiest of ways, has always been fascinating to me, but Witherspoon brought it to another level. If I read one more comment saying all three of her Emmy-eligible roles this year are the same, I might have an outburst like Elena did yesterday. Also, I was a bit surprised to see some people call her acting in the finale over the top and hammy, which I would agree with if referring to her TMS character, but not here. All Elena’s wrath was earned (I’m not saying it was justified, but rather that it was earned from a story perspective). I love Blanchett as Schlafly, but I wish she and King weren’t default front-runners because of their status as actors. All four of Washington, Witherspoon, Wever and Dever deserve to be as competitive for the win as King and Blanchett are!

    I think predicting both David Corenswet and Jeremy Pope, despite their screen time, in lieu of Aaron Paul and Hugh Jackman is in the vein of recent nominations we have observed.

    Why is nobody talking about The Spy and Sacha Baron Cohen? It was a fantastic series and even a greater performance. Should be a contender across the board.

    Thank you.

    So ridiculous that the show did not have enough episodes to qualify as a drama because PBS split the seven episodes across four broadcasts.

    British TV has always had shorter seasons which allows for their stars to pursue other projects, but I do feel like a show that has continuing characters and themes, regardless of whether it is less than six episodes, should compete in Drama/Comedy Series. Like you mentioned, sometimes they combine episodes to make it a longer episode in the US. So, they combined 7 UK episodes into 4, or in the case of the 2010 series Thorne, what was presented as six episodes in the UK, was combined into two 2-hour movies when it was on Netflix.

    Interestingly, “Luther,” which has always been submitted in the Limited Series/Movie category, is being submitted for Drama Series. I agree with this decision, although it is bittersweet because I always felt like Idris Elba should have won at least one Emmy, but the show has never won a single Emmy. It seems very unlikely that he would win the Drama Series Lead Actor Emmy, but to be fair, I don’t think the show has the momentum to win in Limited Series either. The TV Academy cracked down on American Horror Story being in Limited Series for “Apocalypse” last year, so perhaps there were lots of complaints about some networks putting their shows in the what they think is the “easier to win” category rather than the always competitive Drama Series category.

    Wait, that’s why Downton was considered a limited for its first season. I have no words.

    Did always think it’s placement there ridiculous considering S2 had already started filming while S1 began airing in the US.

    Oscars FYC:

    "Lamb" – International Feature and all categories

    "Summer of Soul" – Picture, Film Editing and Documentary Feature

    “The Green Knight” – in all categories

    Yeah, it’ll be interesting to see if that Parks and Rec special is eligible for something.

    Watched 2 episodes of Defending Jacob and it seems Evans can make it in if the show is a hit. But if the show goes under the radar, I doubt anyone from the show can get a nomination.

    Have a great day if you see this!

    FYC:
    Succession
    The Great

    Parks and Recreation should be eligible in the pre-recorded variety special category, with its performers in the limited/movie races.

    I hope we’ll get a confirmation soon regarding the Emmy eligibility of the Parks and Recreation revival special. I think Riley is right about the categories they can contend. Let’s see.
