    Re Sex Education Hannah Waddingham is one ep (like one scene – I’ve not watched the whole season but I did go check it out ) she does technically qualify as guest. I’d say this was pushing it, but, hey, Queen Foy.

    The way Russian Doll smashed at the Emmys and tanked at the guilds

    I’m honestly more shocked at Insecure’a guild performance. It didn’t grow like What We Do in the Shadows and The Great did and its only acting nomination was at Critics Choice for Issa Rae.

    Same. I was expecting Insecure to grow across the board at CC last year. Series + Rae the bare minimum with noms for all of Orji, Rothwell and Ellis.

    "Everybody's Talking About Jamie" – Sup. Actor (Richard E. Grant), Sup. Actress (Sarah Lancashire) and Original Song (“This Was Me”)

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

    It’s gonna be a very competitive year for comedy, but I want so badly for at least Gillian and Hannah to be recognized for Sex Ed. I just love that show so much

    No-context spoilers but Waddingham’s only in one episode of S3 (the finale), confined to only two scenes with her character’s son in his bedroom. Given the history of Guest (even just this year *cough* Cheadle & Foy *cough*), it’s entire plausible that she gets a namecheck nom in Guest.

    But Hannah isn’t in the series winner (for Sex Ed) reprising her Emmy winning role or is a Emmy darling like Cheadle.

    She’ll be nominated again for Ted Lasso but i don’t see her happening for Sex Ed, unless Netflix really campaigns for the show.

    Which is partially why I think Waddingham could happen (at least right now). Outside of Cobra Kai (arguably bottom three this year) and Russian Doll, what other comedies do Netflix have right now that could campaign for (unless another surprise hit a la Dead to Me pops up).

    It’s the perfect combination of critically and commercial (and apologises for the broken record-ness and using this analogy for the millionth time) but this is exactly like Black Panther at the Oscars.

    – in a genre not made for awards, not unexpected to be an awards player.
    – becomes a huge critically and commercially hit.
    – voters need to be told it’s “okay” to vote for it and they do (see BP’s 3 Oscars, Wood’s Bafta).

    And despite a crowded comedy field so far, it’s looking prospects are promising at the winter awards. It is the most acclaimed season so far so I’m expecting CC to pick it up and it’s s a Netflix show starring SAG fav Anderson, their basicness & Netflix bias should be able to pull through at SAG.

    So if it’s just for Anderson to maximise on her Emmy win / her potential three noms next year (Sex Ed, The Great & First Lady), I can’t see any good reason why they get push this for something this cycle

    I honestly don’t see <i>Cobra Kai</i> making it back into series. Sadly the same with Pen15. They both feel like clear beneficiaries of the weak field with them getting in on what the other lacks. Cobra Kai seems to lack the passion (and arguably prestige) to get into series in a more competitive field and Pen15 lacks the visibility.

    Unless one of them flop there seems to be a tight top 10 in series with (in no specific order) Atlanta, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Great, Hacks, Insecure, Maisel, Only Murders in the Building, Russian Doll, Ted Lasso and What We Do in the Shadows and this is just assuming nothing else pops up later (à la Schitt’s Creek in 2019) and BarryDead to Me and The Flight Attendant end up missing eligibility.

    If BarryDead to Me and The Flight Attendant all somehow manage to end up making eligibility in the end the series race is gonna be like…

    Sex Education in my mind is a smart play – it’s far more ensemble-y than most of their comedies, has a competitive male lead in a see of female led comedies at Netflix, and (season not completely seen) has a few years left in it, plus it has the BAFTA seal of approval and clearly strong viewership numbers. And campaigning Anderson for a supporting role is something Netflix have done very successfully.
