We flipped out two years ago when Stranger Things won five Creative Arts Emmys, including main title design. Only one of those wins was over The Handmaid’s Tale (and it was deserved). Although it had done very well overall (eighteen nominations), Stranger Things had some random signs of weakness in the nominations phase (Winona Ryder). The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is the Stranger Things here. It won six Creative Arts Emmys, but only one was over Fleabag (and it was deserved). Although it did very well in nominations (twenty), there was random weakness (writing).
Then again, Game of Thrones came out of the Creative Arts last year without casting or editing, then it went on to lose writing and directing. The competition was so steep that supporting actor was the only award that it won at the main telecast aside from series. So The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel could be Game of Thrones. Maybe the field is divided enough that it still has enough to take series. Plus its losses can be chalked up to merit (casting and writing) or vote-splitting (directing and editing). And both won more at the Creative Arts than expected, with seven for Game of Thrones and six for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
But Game of Thrones did not have that glaring writing snub that Mrs. Maisel has, and in a race this close, I am not going to discount that writing snub.
I have decided to go all-in on Fleabag, and am predicting it for Series, Lead Actress, Writing, Directing, and even Supporting Actress for Coleman.
The only one I might change is Coleman because she might suffer from vote-splitting with Clifford because that Scott-Thomas loss to Jane Lynch is making me nervous about vote-splitting affecting supporting actress as well. Then again, I can’t fathom how Fiona Shaw could steal that many votes from Scott-Thomas to begin with, unless there were votes wanting to reward her for both Killing Eve and Fleabag in this category.September 14, 2019 at 11:48 pm #1203075832
The Simpsons win is just bizarre.September 14, 2019 at 11:47 pm #1203075826
Paging @aayaanupadhyaya! I just cowered away from my Marie Kondo upset pick. You are the only other that I have seen with the prediction. Why?
Because I’m an idiot and like losing easy points -.-
Honestly though, I figured Kondo was the flavour of the month and that her nomination clearly indicated passion for her since she obviously couldnt have been a name-check. It made sense to predict her in the new system, but I realize Ru Paul was always winning so it was stupid to still predict Kondo.September 12, 2019 at 11:37 am #1203071275
Ruth Negga got those nominations because of Oscar so White.
Negga EARNED her nod. The casual racism on these forums is getting so blatant now.
Anyways, you’ve revealed everything I need to know about your raging against JLO when I’m sure you haven’t even seen her performance.September 12, 2019 at 10:50 am #1203071203
Michelle Williams is STUNNING, my god I’m tempted to watch this show now.
Nash is also so, so good in her clip. I’m glad she got a very deserving nomination for this. And I agree, this is not a bad clip for King, her body language is fascinating.

coming back to the clips –
1. Billy Porter (NOT EVEN CLOSE)
2. Milo Ventimiglia
3. Bob Odernkirk
4. Sterling K Brown
5. Jason Bateman
6. Kit Harrington (horrible)September 6, 2019 at 9:23 pm #1203061415
I was really impressed by Marsha Stephanie Blake here as well. I feel like she is really underrated and I actually think she had one of the better clips in this largely dreadful collection of clips.
Rankings (based on clips)
6. Clarkson (this is our frontrunner?? lol)September 5, 2019 at 9:22 am #1203059183
Okay this has to be my FAVORITE collection of clips so far. I mean what an amazing category this is.
I’m so confused about who I’d rank first here, but Whishaw and Blackk are just tooo good. Williams and Dano are great too..

This gif tho, I’ve never really understood what’s the best case to use it for lol.
Haha okay so this gif is from an Indian soap opera – Sasural Simar Ka – which is basically the most insane, awful, and unintentionally hilarious show on television. There are many more equally funny gifs from this show and they are honestly a mood.August 26, 2019 at 12:22 pm #1203040768
Clarkson is a veteran actress in a series that the voters obviously watched
Are we sure about this?
Because my rational behind predicting Arquette over Clarkson is that the acting branch (which is the only branch that decides this category) actually nominated Joey King in Lead Actress (a stand-out performance from a younger actress) but snubbed Eliza Scanlen in Supporting Actress (another stand-out performance from a younger actress).
Them nominating Joey King means that they saw Arquette’s performance, which can make this an easy win for her. And that’s even before we take into consideration her second nod for Escape.August 22, 2019 at 2:01 am #1203034629
There was a point where I considered Williams as the possible winner due to her character’s storyline and popularity. But I feel like she won’t have the support due to her young age. I think Gwen is the spoiler here or simply GoT frontrunner, but Shaw’s double nods make me think she takes this, although both of her noms feel coattail, not to her name but to each respective show she’s on, unlike Dowd who won on a THT sweep and her guest actress nod was coattail to her name.
I have the same thinking. But shouldn’t Garner then be the prediction? Because unlike her other five co-nominees, she has the performance, the SAG nod, doesn’t have to contend with vote-splitting, and her show is in Drama Series.
The ONLY thing I can see against her is her age, but then again in this category half of the women are younger than 25 so it probably doesn’t matter much. Also, this new system doesn’t seem that adverse to rewarding young actors.
