I think The Flight Attendant will take the win.
It’s a really stylish and well-directed episode so I’d be happy with this outcome. The trend of the comedy front runner sweeping this category even when it’s not a directing showcase is starting to irk me.June 17, 2021 at 10:41 am #1204304672
Networks are much savvier now about submissions which makes it all the more baffling when you see a show fumble like Lovecraft Country. Given the competition, it probably could’ve gotten a directing nomination but it submitted like six episodes.
Also confused about Perry Mason submitting two in directing, WV submitting almost the entire season in writing, etc. – why?
Ted Lasso is strong enough to get multiple directing slots but not sure which of those four stand out.
I think Hacks is a done deal to get into both writing and directing.
I know everyone is counting out Fargo but it submitted once in both writing and directing and I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see it show up in both.
Not that it’s even close to a nomination but it was nice to see The
Expanse submitting really well.
Since the Connors submitted three episodes – what is taking the cursed multi-cam directing slot?May 17, 2021 at 3:13 pm #1204259071
“Raised by Wolves”, from Raised by Wolves, written by Aaron Guzikowski
This is a really fantastic and unique pilot for a totally underrated show
I’m not even sure that the Expanse will be on the writing ballot but they should really be in the conversation this year, especially with the lack of more “prestige” titles. Now that the show is on Amazon, I hope more people are finally discovering it.

I wouldn’t call Ruth Wilson a fresh face considering how prior to her win for The Affair she had already been previously nominated for a Golden Globe for Jane Eyre and was the principal female character on a multi Emmy nominated drama.
Cool, I would which is why I said it.November 26, 2020 at 7:45 am #1203874967
Did Sandra Oh, Elisabeth Moss, Taraji P. Henson, Ruth Wilson and Claire Danes fit that bill either?
Ruth Wilson, yes. The others obviously not. I didn’t say they exclusively go for fresh faces, only that they often go for them. Ignoring those saying Cuoco, who starred on one of the biggest shows of all time is “fresh” wile Smollett isn’t because of Eve’s Bayou…
Anyway, I was just floating the possibility – no need to get up in arms.November 12, 2020 at 8:17 am #1203831574
LOL we are discussing live ratings in 2020?
Also, people may have been slightly preoccupied with *other things* last week and didn’t feel the urgency to watch an HBO drama on Sunday night. Just a thought.
Not saying it’s some massive hit but I think one can get lost looking too deeply into the tea leaves.
Who knows what happens Emmys-wise but I’d say it has strong chances at the Globes for series, actor, actress, and maybe supporting actor (but those categories are always super weird so who knows).
I agree with whoever previously said that Anya Taylor-Joy and Queen’s Gambit are likely taking actress and series anyway.September 17, 2020 at 5:56 pm #1203714020
Can’t believe we were robbed of a Maya Rudolph speech. So happy she won, though.September 17, 2020 at 11:23 am #1203713175
Hard for me to buy a Levy win over Shalhoub – he will already be winning writing and I don’t think his acting is necessarily as respected or considered a standout element of the series. Fleabag was way more of an acting showcase for PWB than SC is for Levy.September 17, 2020 at 8:52 am #1203712592
Probably gonna lost point for predicting Maya Rudolph over Taika in voice over but I really hope she finally wins.Not now
