    I hope that the Halloween episode of Abbott Elementary can break into directing.

    10. Steven Knight for All the Light We Cannot See

    Had no idea that he’s the one adapting it, I feel like him and Jack Thorne are behind everything.

    I think The Bear should submit two episodes, the Pilot and “Review” in Directing. It can totally get both since the category isn’t looking too crowded at the moment.

    It can’t submit both episodes as they are directed by the same director.

    If The Bear wants to submit two episodes in directing it has to submit one of Joanna Calo’s episodes (“Brigade”, “Ceres” or “Sheridan”).

    With the White Lotus being moved out of Limited into Drama, would Mike White have to submit an individual episode or does the entire season still count as his submission like it would in Limited.

    Maybe Fryman could get this year’s Multi-Cam directing slot for the pilot?

    Yeah that has positive (low positive, but it’s a network multi-cam) reviews too. Plus Rauch was doing interviews about preserving the format.

    Donald Glover deserves a directing nod for Atlanta’s “Goof Who Sat By The Door”
