Really glad that FX is the lead and not Netflix! I’m always rooting for HBO but even I can admit they didn’t have so many strong material this year.. Although I am rooting for Sharp Object everywhere. next year they’ll bounce back perhaps. Veep, GoT, True Detective, Watchmen maybe… 2nd place is still great though
i feel bad for Showtime for being underrepresented there, to me it always seems like they are always trying the most. And they produce some very good stuff

Which TV network has the most nominations?December 6, 2018 at 6:32 am #1202691075
Considering the awful record the Golden Globes has (IMO), they could have done much worse. I think It’s an okay list.
Disappointed for Westworld for not being nominated in series. Thrilled for Richard Madden’s nomination, I’ll be rooting for him and Billy Porter in that category. Don’t care much for Maniac being shut, I saw that coming. Rooting for Sharp Objects in every category it’s in!
And Black Panther being nominated for best picture must be their most ridiculous nomination perhaps in all their yearsDecember 2, 2018 at 9:04 am #1202687324
Did we have any official word on Big Little Lies Season 2 actually being in this year’s race?
Its definitely a Sunday night primetime show, and with True Detective Ending at March 8th, the only option for it to air on time is the Sunday right after, yet we still don’t have any release date info.
The fact it fits right into the slot between the two shows makes me think it will actually air on time, but is it possible HBO will actually do the wise thing and postpone it to the second half of the year? Otherwise they’re pretty much doomed for 2020’s Emmys.November 29, 2018 at 10:30 am #1202685247
How come everyone thinks Homecoming is such a big threat?
i mean, yeah it was well received but not much more than many other series that came out this year… I see no enormous buzz for it on the Internet, whatever this means, and by the time the voting will start it will almost be a year since the season ended. I think it was aimed more for the Golden Globes, which it has a very good chance of winning IMONovember 29, 2018 at 4:16 am #1202684816
I can already see my big return to this place once Miguel Sapochnik’s first episode in GoT airs.
I will never promote an episode in my life like I’ll promote that one haha. Still don’t think I’m ready for it.November 15, 2018 at 7:22 am #1202675564
Do you guys think Djawadi has a strong chance of repeating this year?
In 2018 suddenly the Academy started showing him the love he deserves and his biggest threat in this category was actually himself… With no Westworld this year, and this being a final season (plus we all damn know in advance he will deserve it), I can see people rallying behind him. I guess you can say Jeff Beal is a threat, but this season of HoC wasn’t really acclaimed in general so I don’t know if it will shine there of all categoriesNovember 9, 2018 at 12:49 pm #1202671616
Really enjoyed the show and I can definitely see it a good Golden globe contender, but can’t say the same about the Emmys (in the Series/Writing/Directing categories). Especially when we have so many past strong contenders returning.November 2, 2018 at 12:50 pm #1202666985
Wright deserves a nomination, and she might as well win. She was always one of the best actresses on TV. Other than that I don’t think it has a chance (or any business being) in any of the other main categories… Maybe Original Music since Jeff Beal already won twice for itNovember 2, 2018 at 2:58 am #1202666727
Last April a crew member revealed that Game of Thrones had wrapped 55 night shoots while filming a battle. Media outlets around the world ran stories saying the final season’s battle took twice as long as the 25-day shoot for season 6’s climactic Battle of the Bastards. This wildly understated what really happened. The 55 nights were only for the battle’s outdoor scenes at the Winterfell set. Filming then moved into the studio, where Sapochnik continued shooting the same battle for weeks after that.
“It’s brutal,” Dinklage says. “It makes the Battle of the Bastards look like a theme park.”
The battle doesn’t have just one focus, either, but rather intercuts between multiple characters involved in their own survival storylines that each feels like its own genre. “Having the largest battle doesn’t sound very exciting — it actually sounds pretty boring,” Benioff says. “Part of our challenge, and really, Miguel’s challenge, is how to keep that compelling… we’ve been building toward this since the very beginning, it’s the living against the dead, and you can’t do that in a 12-minute sequence.”
To help pull it off, the production hugely expanded its set for the Stark ancestral home of Winterfell, adding a towering castle exterior, a larger courtyard, and more interconnected rooms and ramparts. Strolling around the new Winterfell is like wandering a sprawling, immersive medieval resort compared with its previous Days Inn-like scale. The ground is covered with snow and blood. The air is thick with smoke from the fire pits. You can turn any direction and only see more Winterfell. It’s easy to feel like you’ve somehow wandered into Westeros
HBO be wise and not oversubmit!! This could be the easiest Emmy in their history, if not for vote splittingOctober 21, 2018 at 12:08 pm #1202658456
Is anyone already hearing word on Dinklage’s chances for My Dinner with Harvè (HBO Film)? Came out this Saturday. We already know the Academy loves him hahaSeptember 27, 2018 at 2:45 pm #1202642553
A little bit not-specifically-related, but everyone agrees that the Emmys are far superior to the TV Golden Globes right?September 27, 2018 at 2:36 pm #1202642551
Yeah Scanlen should at least get nominated… Don’t think she can actually win against THT girls
She stands better chances in the Emmys next year, I hopeSeptember 27, 2018 at 6:46 am #1202642265
Just finished the show, it’s fun but it’s not an Emmy Winner IMO. Maybe Golden Globes.
Still rooting for Sharp Objects for nowSeptember 24, 2018 at 8:30 am #1202640221
Ranking by winners the last 3 years 2018: Oscars>Grammys>Emmys 2017: Emmys>Oscars>Grammys 2016: Grammys>Emmys>Oscars Hmm, each has been the worst, the best, and the middle.
I wouldn’t say there was a single year since 2000 that the Oscars winners were generally better than the Emmy’s… stopped caring for the Oscars years ago
