I guess we assume that the requisite number of voters will actually vote in the Lead Actor in a Musical category. But I would be tempted to leave it blank if I were a voter. Christian is a featherweight role. Aaron and his voice are both very pretty, but that performance is not going to go down in the pantheon of great musical theater turns. But he has a lot of goodwill from his previous work and he recovered from COVID, so I’m guessing people will just decide to give it to him in this crazy year.
I’m sorry but for any awards body to have rules that could nominated one sole nominee in a category and than still have rules that could totally humiliate that person is flat wrong. Either don’t have a category or give him the win in a fair vote. Nominating 1 person and than saying he needs to get 60% or else he loses is cruel.

Does anyone know if Boomer Beachum and Marcus Dixon have seen Hillbilly? They are LA based editors for the site so I figure they must have been to a screening? Boomer has Amy in #1 and Marcus has her in #2 in their predictions.

Tough because where some had great ones (Lange-Frances, Hunter-The Piano) their other performance weren’t that great to me.
I always loved Sigourney’s 1-2 punch because you can’t get any more different than Diane Fossey and Katherine Parker. Sad she went home empty handed.

Might have already seen the winning tape for drama supporting actress in my personal awards. (Still need to post my 2020 awards.)
For those wondering Riley has The Crown Season 4 screener so it’s probably Anderson. Or Corrin. Poor HBC.September 21, 2020 at 9:12 pm #1203726878
So when is this thing? When are nominations?
I need something to hold me over before the delayed Oscar season.September 20, 2020 at 6:55 pm #1203722857
What a total waste of a win.
I loved Mrs America and Uzo wasn’t even in the top 3 of her own show. What a joke. Did Kamala Harris just drag her to a win? Please! JOKE!September 20, 2020 at 11:50 am #1203720630
Quoting for emphasis. I automatically assume now that a win means that voters were lazy; that she had the goods is merely coincidental.
Which tells you all you need to know. Her tape in 2009 was by far the worst of the bunch. Wiest and Davis had those long ass In Treatment therapy session episodes. Oh and Wilson had 2 episodes being co-stars. ANd Byrne had a big Damages showcase where she went toe to toe vs Close.
We all know what an absolute fraud her win last year was. And she was hardly the best in this years field.
And as the user above suggested she hasn’t exactly translated her stage career into mind blowing film and TV performances.
So she wins under both systems when she’s not the best. Major back patting amongst friends going on in these popular votes.September 19, 2020 at 8:42 pm #1203719498
I haven’t been looking forward to the Emmys at all. And seeing Cherry Jones win against just reinforces why. YAWN.
And these producers are such scum. Holding the category last for the 2nd year in a row? Inexcusable seeing the director and accountants knews the winners. Why lead us on and tease us the winner would have been someone deserving like Tyson or Rashad?September 17, 2020 at 5:57 pm #1203714034
HOORAY! MAYA WINS! BRAVO!September 16, 2020 at 7:32 pm #1203711817
Hillbilly Elegy and French Exit. Because Glenn, Amy, and Michelle are the only actresses in the running this year I want to see win. The rest I’d rather lick a bar counter and get COVID than to see win.September 15, 2020 at 5:49 pm #1203709032
Agreed. Was hoping Issa Rae would get something.September 15, 2020 at 5:47 pm #1203709024
EMMY WINNAH KERRY WASHINGTON!
THAT’S YOUR STORY FROM TONIGHT!September 15, 2020 at 5:14 pm #1203708958
What a surprise. The second I saw the category playing a clip of CAR POOK JKaroke I knew it would win (even though it didn’t look as good as the other nominees). NAME CHECK.September 14, 2020 at 9:30 pm #1203707339
Can Kerry Washington finally win an Emmy?
Or is Regina King the only blackstress allowed to win?September 14, 2020 at 5:44 pm #1203706719
RIP to you. The user that thought the only winners were going to be POC.
I actually said they will be hypocrites and give it to their fav Regina King and screw most of the rest. I’ll be right like always.
