    Well that didn’t work well for Anya Taylor-Joy…

    Taylor-Joy has an even more complicated citizenship history than Anderson.

    She also lost to a Brit.

    Anya Taylor-Joy lost to a British national treasure and was probably even third (top two being British-one a legend and the other a breakout with huge passion).

    True but Winslet is also British, a seriously superior actress, and her show swept across the board in acting noms so still a similar principle

    Maybe add then if there’s contention within that always go with the more experienced/famous and award winning British contender e.g. Colman and Winslet

    I know. But my point more was that I don’t think Winslet won because she was British. I can understand applying to this argument to Michaela Coel (because her show is a British one and was a pop-cultural phenomenon in the UK) or to The Crown but it ultimately is about appeal and at the end of the day Winslet’s comeback performance as a flawed single mother and detective in a HBO hit had universal appeal.

    To be fair, Julia Garner beat out five Brits, but I would also say there was not a clear enough answer to that in her category to give her the edge.

    I actually don’t think there’s a UK Block of voters, I think there’s a general affection for British content and actors in general. If the UK block were that strong, It’s A Sin would have gotten in EASILY.

    It might even be there is just a growing tendency to see things in a (baby steps) slightly more international manner – we saw it with Schitt’s last year, and Unorthodox, and Netflix often shout in to the void that most of their most popular content is not American  – it’s often not even English-language.

    Fair – I didn’t really mean the British bloc is about them all voting for each other – it’s more than that, as it’s also about how they tend to have a wider appeal to US audiences and are viewed as better trained (often because they are)

    I agree. Ted Lasso & The Crown really are just that beloved. Its not like Thomas Brodie-Sangster or Paapa Essiedu ended up winning.

    I am too, but I have lost all hope for Sandra Oh

    I haven’t. Fingers crossed. Comer could be the hurdle there.

    Not necessarily about the 2022 race but the Hacks win in directing only goes further to show that the branch doesn’t care about how flashy your work is or how big a name a director is when it comes to the win. Winning that category depends on your strength in series.

    Praying for Sandra for her last season of KE! Please get it, girl.

    I am too, but I have lost all hope for Sandra Oh

    I have this fear that they’ll nominate her for lead in BOTH Drama (Killing Eve) AND Comedy (The Faculty) and then deny her a win in BOTH categories.

    I’m still befuddled that even Davies couldn’t get in Writing.

    If you’re predicting a show to win both writing and directing and it has multiple nominees in one or both, pick the same episode in both if it’s an option — see the results for The Crown this year.

    I disagree. Two different episodes of Succession won writing and directing last year.
