Remember when people were saying Cox and Strong would split. LMAO.
I swear next time a buzzy duo is nominated at the Emmys people will be like “they’re splitting” simply because two people are nominated.
Watchmen splitted in Directing and lost. Succession didn’t sweep in Acting. Strong could’ve easily lost.July 28, 2020 at 10:29 am #1203608638
I’m so sad for Pelphrey. Hope they bring him back next year as a ghost. He was just as marvelous as Mendelsohn for Bloodline S01.
Of course Succession is winning but I’ll just rely on the Patinkin snub for the drama winner Homeland S01 to pretend we have a race between Ozark and Succession.
The Mandalorian got in due to some Disney money, right? I’m sure it isn’t bad but…………….
I still think Linney and Garner might win. I’m still saying the Succession duo won’t overcome vote-splitting. Porter might repeat.
And, as a black person, thank you academy.June 17, 2020 at 5:35 pm #1203539459
The victim-blaming bullshit that someone could be just asking for their baby to be kidnapped (by virtue of “the level of neglect” inherent in a baby having been kidnapped) is among the most offensive and problematic takes that I have read in this forum.
That’s just an unfair way to address to what was said earlier on this thread.
What I found actually problematic was people judging Bebe for “choosing” to leave her baby.June 17, 2020 at 3:44 pm #1203539334
Wasn’t Ahmed over DeNiro the one real upset? Or not even that one?
It’s not like B. Vance and Cumberbatch beating Cranston and Ruffalo, respectively, came out of nowhere.
But yes, it may mean something, who knowsJune 17, 2020 at 1:29 pm #1203539014
10 minutes? Suspicious…
Given what’s been happening lately, maybe we should change the format and only consider the votes actually posted on the threads.June 17, 2020 at 1:11 pm #1203538979
Beware, the following argument is extremely tiring.
You’ve been warned.
But the current scenario might be what Aaron Paul needs to win getting carried by the – apparently – never-ending Breaking Bad residual love. I know it was kinda the same argument for Bob Odenkirk last year in drama, even though he had more of a winner performance than Aaron this year, but we don’t have a Billy Porter, not even a Jason Bateman type of passion here.
If we had a line up of somewhat filler nominees* in drama supporting actor such as: Jonathan Banks, Jon Voight, Jim Carter, Michael Kelly, Chris Sullivan and Matt Smith, Banks could grab a win out of BrBa residual love for any of the seasons he was nominated for BCS.
*I’m aware those guys were never eligible in the same year nor all are currently
So why not Paul? I’m not necessarily prediciting him though.June 17, 2020 at 2:02 am #1203537956

Directing can have really strange choices, it often has nominees that are not drama series nominees, only in the last few years we have seen there a double nomination for Ozark (season 1 was not a drama nominee), Homeland (season 6), Ray Donovan (season 3), The Knick (for both seasons that had) and Boardwalk Empire (the affair of the directing branch with it is legendary, it got only two noms for series, both with victories in directing for Scorsese and Tim Van Patten, but Tim Van Patten algo got nominations for all other seasons after – season 3, season 4 and season 5, Jeremy Podeswa was also nominated for season 1). What are going to be the equivalents of those?
Boardwalk Empire is probably the best directed show of the century.

I would be thrilled if Pose got in Drama. Hell, I think that even the cast of Big Little Lies would want Pose to get in over them. It’s so much important to have a show that relevant getting recognized. It would be so deserving, season 2 was great.
Just picture yourselves five, ten years from now, looking back at 2020. What would be more important to get some real recognition in times like these we’re living in, shows like Westworld, The Outsider, Stranger Things, or a show like Pose?
Pose is not undeniably one of the seven best drama series that aired in the last 12 months. But we only have 4, maybe 5 shows that must get in at all costs.
If only Angelica Ross was eligible to be submitted in Guest Actress. I would stan her nomination and win so much.
I might be in the minority right now, but would it be really such a crime to have Comer and Whiterspoon snubbed for MJ Rodriguez?
We see those household names. We see white people having juicy material to work with and by default we predict them. Yeah, I know, this is a prediction site, so, of course, we are just trying to predict correctly.
The things is, we kept seeing those unnecessary Jim Carter noms year after year and just assumed that voters must’ve really liked the show. “It was probably the ‘british block’ or something.” We try to make some sense out of those things. I just hope, really hope, that this kind of goodwill reach a show like Pose instead of one like Downton Abbey, you know? They would be so much more deserving than Jim Carter.
I know… the Jim Carter comparison was random AF lolJune 13, 2020 at 10:40 am #1203531281
I think Luca`s point is that THT has previous goodwill from the academy so voters would probably stick until the end of the season, watch the well received finale and then maybe nominate the show.
THT would come from a shaky start to a decent finish being a drama series winner while TMS doesn`t have that pedigree.
I`m yet to watch THT S3 though.June 11, 2020 at 6:14 pm #1203528858
The battle between Unorthodox and Normal People vs Little Fires Everywhere and Hollywood is giving me a headache. Will the Academy embrace the first two as favorites of the people and as two very daunting and original shows or it will embrace the big and flashy industry names, sets and budgets of the other two, even if their quality is put on question?
My gut says the academy will end up picking Normal People and LFE.
