Even though it was technically for Season 1, Sandra Oh did win Golden Globe, SAG, and Critics’ Choice for this role.July 18, 2019 at 8:41 pm #1202984293
“We’re Going to the Catskills!” would be a slam dunk, simply because it references the Catskills arc, if it were directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino. Voters who watched The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 back in December need that episode title to jog their memory but I’m afraid it will split votes with Amy Sherman-Palladino’s episodes simply because it’s her.July 18, 2019 at 8:40 pm #1202984289
I agree that Barry seems like a runner-up at best. Like Atlanta, they like it for what it is and love to nominate it all over the place for its artistry but they would prefer a more traditional comedy to award in series.
I feel the same way about Fleabag, which I don’t buy winning at all. It is a buzzy offbeat auteur show, like Barry, but it is not the kind of thing that the Emmys feel comfortable rewarding as there is no precedent for it, not to mention it’s a British import, and is six episodes long, etc.
Therefore, I think the race is between Veep and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which are both past series winner and far more traditional Comedy Series awardees. I give the edge to Maisel because it overperformed in nominations, has below the line support, and will not split the “cool” alternative to Veep vote, which Barry, Fleabag, and to an extent Russian Doll are all classified as.July 18, 2019 at 8:23 pm #1202984262

I’m currently watching Ozark Season 2. I started When They See Us last night but didn’t finish the first episode. I might continue, but it was just a lot to handle.July 18, 2019 at 3:14 pm #1202983789
Maybe not bad but… scary? It’s very disturbing that I can tell who the actor is but also they are digitally covered in fur, so they are essentially half human half cat. Who wants to see that?
Also once I’ve listened to Betty Buckley sing Memory, there’s no one else I want to hear singing it.July 17, 2019 at 9:02 pm #1202982219
From someone who doesn’t watch Game of Thrones, how is the poll going?July 17, 2019 at 10:05 am #1202981386
Amy’s won two Globes and a SAG – for cast. And Williams has won a Globe too actually. Both have won industry awards before.
Besides the SAG ensemble award (which isn’t individual so who cares) neither Adams or Williams have ever been rewarded by their peers– aka people in the industry.July 17, 2019 at 10:01 am #1202981363
Chris Sullivan’s nomination is really bothering me. Mandy Moore’s make sense if they are just playing catch-up from last year or if she was 7th or 8th last year in a stronger field. That I can accept.
But Chris Sullivan being nominated means that people must have voted for him that didn’t vote for Justin Hartley, which makes no sense to me. I just don’t know who would do that, considering that Hartley had a bigger role and better material and has a generally buzzier performance.
And I guess I don’t buy the argument that people are actually watching This Is Us, because if that were true, why couldn’t Susan Kelechi Watson come within 2% of say, Fiona Shaw? This Sullivan nomination is really throwing me.July 17, 2019 at 9:52 am #1202981347
Colman is probably 4th or 5th in the category for me, after Clifford, Goldberg, Borstein and maybe Hinkle, but her nomination is deserved. And since Fleabag is so short and it only broke through this year, we can assume that the love and nominations is for both seasons, and Colman was very deserving in Season 1.July 16, 2019 at 6:51 pm #1202980042
I mean have you seen a better category?July 16, 2019 at 9:21 am #1202977930

My poor Shailene has been sidelined all season.
I’m still not convinced that Zoe Kravitz is that great of an actress. I think she’s done a good job, and her hospital scene was very well done, but I’m not sure if I would nominate her.
I actually think that if Meryl Streep has juicy stuff to do in the finale (which she definitely will) then I think she can take the buzz that Laura Dern took from her and be a frontrunner for the Emmy.
