I really hope the no screener stuff has nothing to do with the quality of the show. Emily is right when saying that most times networks hide their screeners because they don’t want bad press, but Netflix has been doing things differently for a while now, so hopefully it has nothing to do with that.July 16, 2019 at 10:17 am #1202978367
I did not expect this, but we really have a race here. With Veep going single-digit in nominations (and missing huge categories like directing and editing) it is definitely vulnerable to both Maisel and Barry, and on top of that we have two potential dark horse in Fleabag and Russian Doll (actually the first more than the latter).May 20, 2019 at 1:01 pm #1202901820
I don’t really care what D&D will end-up doing in the rest of their career cause I’ll simply avoid to watch whatever they’re involved in.
I haven’t been a fan of the show for a long time, but the finale was a really embarrassing mess.May 20, 2019 at 12:54 pm #1202901805
Veep has the emmy already in the bag, but this was a truly amazing season, just like season 1.
Kudos to Hader and Berg for putting together such a great show on all levels (writing, directing and performances).May 20, 2019 at 11:43 am #1202901643
It will win, no doubt about it, and it will manage to both go down as one of the worst season of all time to win Best Drama and also prove how much Emmys don’t matter anymore when such a highly criticized and lackluster show can still win the highest prize.April 14, 2019 at 2:51 pm #1202852788
If the Amazon Lord of the Rings show is going to start shooting in August, will it be ready in time for the 2020 Emmy season?
I don’t think it’s going to air in 2020 at all.March 31, 2019 at 3:48 pm #1202835473
Have you seen how stacked the drama race is? Some perennial nominees are bound to be dropped. Even The Handmaid’s tale does not look like a sure thing so I don’t see how it’s delusional to think Better Call Saul could miss on a nomination.
Because we’re talking about the same awards that have kept shows like Homeland and House of Cards in the nominations for years after their expiration date, and it’s not like Better Call Saul has dropped in quality like those other two have.
And I don’t see the field as that stacked when some of the assumed contender for the nominations are new shows from a brand new network that have an equal chance of turning out either really good or really bad.March 29, 2019 at 1:38 am #1202833179
I have to admit, it’s damn hilarious when people predict shows that haven’t aired yet from a network that doesn’t exist yet to be nominated in the biggest category of the Emmys ahead of a show that has been nominated 3 times out of 3, coming from a network that has won 6 of these things.
Yes, I’m talking about Better Call Saul.September 17, 2018 at 8:11 pm #1202635326
I really enjoyed The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I just fear for all the backlash it’s going to get for sweeping the Comedy category.
Other two recent shows that sweeped (or close to it) in their first season: The Handmaid’s Tale, Homeland. Now let’s see what happened for both of them in their Season 2…September 14, 2018 at 5:16 am #1202631841
BoJack and American Vandal returning the same day is perfect.
Netflix is the best! Seriously, like HBO in their prime by this point.
HBO in their prime was The Wire, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Deadwood and Curb Your Enthusiasm all in the air at the same time.
Netflix is NOWHERE NEAR that level. Like miles away from it.
That said, BoJack is amazing and it will probably become my favorite comedy of all time once is all said and done. But the rest of their line-up? Meh.

The heist was amusing, but this week’s episode was pretty much entirely scenes that they could have just skipped. What a poor follow-up to “Chicanery” (same writer and director combination).
Both Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul have never relied too much on the combination of giving the best stories to certain writers, as it’s much more of a team work than in other TV shows. Classic example, “Ozymandias”, arguably the best episode of Breaking Bad whole show, being written by Moira Walley-Beckett instead of Vince Gilligan.
There could easily be another episode as good as Chicanery this season, but written and directed by someone else entirely.August 27, 2018 at 9:06 am #1202617801
I’m thinking of Sharp Objects, True Detective, the final season of Game of Thrones (if eligible in time for next year’s Emmys), the final season of Veep, Silicon Valley, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Barry, Silicon Valley, and Big Little Lies
You mentioned Silicon Valley twice, but I think there’s a strong chance that it won’t be eligible as they’ll hold it for the second half of the year. Its absence from the promo is already kind of telling.July 14, 2018 at 9:17 am #1202586450
I’m already quitting the Emmys for Kyle MacLachlan not nominated.July 12, 2018 at 9:10 am #1202584004
A couple of curious things here and there (like Unbreakable only getting 2 nominees, of which one is for the most important award), but nothing earth shattering.
I am going full mad for both Twin Peaks and MacLachlan out though. Embarrassing showing by the Academy.
