    Ben Stiller’s work in Good News About Hell (pilot) is stronger than that in The We We Are and would’ve been my choice of submission.

    A Negroni. Sbagliato. With Prosecco in it.

    Better Call Saul peaked in season 3. The loss of Chuck as a character (and McKean’s exceptional performance) has been felt ever since, though the later seasons have been littered with some great scenes/episodes.

    All three comedy, drama and limited lead actor lineups this year are stronger than their female equivalent categories.

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

    Russian Doll season 2 was just as good as season 1 was and it’s very disappointing that it couldn’t manage to muster any awards traction. Lyonne was win worthy.

    The positiveness of the Ted Lasso is actually what I don’t enjoy in the show lol. Of course it’s sweet and fresh in some moments, but they walk a very dangerous line that makes them cringe in so many moments. It have a lot of qualities but it’s not a easy watch for me.

    I gave up after a few episodes. I just can’t.

    As phenomenal as ‘All The Bells Say’ is and would likely become a (worthy)winner , Severance or Better Call Saul should be winning the writing Emmy.

    The calendar the Emmys employ is perfect. Projects that debut early get to grow as the season goes on due to critical word of mouth (which doesn’t necessarily happen with the film awards) and, whilst the scheduling habits of shows and the viewing habits of those who watch them has changed substantially in the past 20 years, the format of the awards cycle really helps give a well need viewing boost to subsequent seasons of some shows.

    Moving it to a period near the Oscars would just exacerbate problems that are already common with the Oscars when it comes to rubber stamping the same projects again and again and exacerbate the Emmys’ current penchant for name-checking the same old contenders in shows past their prime in awards and overall popularity.

    Being in an era where new television isn’t adhered to the traditional network schedule, I’d argue it’s better for new shows to debut early in the season rather cramming in at the last minute like we saw with this year limited crowd.

    Without the time to gain fans, would early summer debuts like Mr. Robot, The Night Of, Pose, Succession, Euphoria, or I May Destroy You have the opportunity to win big like they did, I’m doubtful.

    Moving the actual ceremony closer to Oscars (unless it’s held afterwards) would just make it another pre-cursor award for the campaign trail.

    Pundits were insufferable about Zendaya’s Emmy win for Euphoria being a sign of strength about her chances for Macaroni and Marie (and to a lesser extent, Regina King’s win for Seven Seconds).

    Imagine how Laura Dern win for Big Little Lies S2 in the middle of her Marriage Story campaign, nothing about her win would be treated as celebratory for extraordinary work as Reneta Klein, just another chance for a good speech.

    The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is very, very, very, very, very bad. All show and no go. Thank god for tbis thread, I needed to say this somewhere because I’m only reading people praising the show and I just don’t get it.

    Amanda Seyfried did nothing remotely close to be worthy of an Emmy for The Dropout, i felt like she was trying way too hard and totally missed Elizabeth Holmes in some moments
    Lily James’ performance is also quite meh to me, the prosthetics truly took away any acting on that performance.
    Julia Garner gave what’s probably the worst performance ever from an Emmy winner in another show, truly terrible stuff and a nomination for that is an abomination.
    That win should be easily going for Margaret Qualley, but this part isn’t really that unpopular here.

    Emmy winner Matthew Macfadyen!!

    Completely agree with this take. Once the show shifted from being set mostly in the legal world to featuring these crime characters more prominently than the leads at times, the show went downhill and never recovered. Season 3 was an incredible season of television. Every season after will be ultimately forgettable, though season 6 was a bit of a step up.

    My unpopular opinion

    – Bryan Cranston should’ve lost the emmys for brba s1,2,3 to Hugh Laurie in house s4,5,6

    – Nikolaj Coster-waldau should have won over Peter Dinklage for GOT s7 and s8

    – Michael McKean should’ve won for BCS s3 and that’s the only emmy that the show deserved

    – Anna Gunn’s performance was better than Rhea Seehorn

    – Loreine Bracco deserved the emmy over Falco for the sopranos s3

    – Josh Holloway deserved emmy nod for lost s3 and a win for s5

    – Michael Emerson in lost should’ve won for s4 and s6

    – Kerri Russel deserved to win the emmy for the Americans with Rhys

    – Vanessa Kirby should have won over Thandie Newton

    That’s not an unpopular opinion.
