My wishlist for 2020:
Drama Handmaid’s Tale
Drama L Actor Steve Carell
Drama L Actress Elisabeth Moss or Sandra Oh but she’s still going to be East Asian so I doubt it
Drama S Actor Joseph Fiennes
Drama S Actress Yvonne Strahovski or Meryl Streep
Drama G Actor Max Minghella or OT Fagbenle
Drama G Actress Alexis BledelSeptember 25, 2019 at 9:18 pm #1203103823
I mean, plenty of people watched Downton Abbey & Sherlock.
If producers/execs believe $ can be made remaking a show, it’ll happen. Look at all the American shows being remade/rebooted/re-whatevered by AmericansSeptember 24, 2019 at 6:27 pm #1203100867

yeah it took cersei like 6 years to get a major nom outside of the emmys so there was never really a clamor of support anywhere for herSeptember 24, 2019 at 12:51 pm #1203100358
With both Drama & Comedy Series winners having exactly the general minimum # of episodes, I wonder, will we get super buzzy shows in the future with 5 or fewer episodes that would thus be forced to be “limited” despite being in every other way a series, i.e. continuing characters/storylines?
I know there are some shows that started before the rule change, which have been dubiously nominated in TV Movie, like Sherlock and Luther.September 24, 2019 at 12:26 pm #1203100329
As a winner of 3 top categories thus far, Crown certainly seems to be in a good position to be a newly minted Series winner and finally break Netflix’s streak of being unable to win any Series categorySeptember 24, 2019 at 12:18 pm #1203100317
“Just realised that Sandra Oh, Rachel Brosnahan and Patricia Arquette swept the winter awards and then all of them lost at the Emmys. “

HBO basically can only lose to PBS in Limited Series when HBO has a real contender.
And Netflix, which continues its streak of 0 Series (drama/comedy/limited) wins, was never that likely to overcome thatSeptember 23, 2019 at 7:59 pm #1203098968
Better call saul is the only 2x Drama Series nominee in the last 40 years with zero wins. Will next year finally snap their losing streak?September 23, 2019 at 12:55 pm #1203098394
I don’t watch Handmaid’s Tale, so I’d appreciate if someone could answer this. I know the second season was widely seen as a sophomore slump. What’s the general consensus on the third season? Is it seen as a return to form?
Well, it includes the least popular episodes of the series to-date, and the most popular episodes of the series to-date, based on imdb at least. I think it definitely helps that the most beloved episodes are in the final 3 of the season, while the least liked are right in the middle.
If someone were lazy and felt like only watching the premiere, that is a pretty popular episode. And if someone watched the whole thing, they would be left on a high by the end. I guess there *could* be some who gave up halfway through.September 23, 2019 at 12:24 pm #1203098341
Maybe she can win for KE but she’ll have to be undeniable and Comer can’t be nominated. But since Comer is the one whose probably going to be sticking around now, she might have to settle for Supporting.
East Asian performers aren’t allowed to win. Their Caucasian younger co-stars are allowed to take their trophies though.
…So Handmaid’s Tale officially was the 2nd biggest drama nominee and 2nd biggest drama winner despite being ineligible in Drama Series/Lead & Supporting Acting. Whew, bodes well for 2020.
