SAG is far less of a bellwether than DGA, and a small correction – TGW only received 1 WGA nomination that year. As you correctly acknowledged, the probability of a Watchmen snub is ridiculously low based on history.
I must have confused S3 with S4 there. Yeah, I’m still firm on a series nomination.
The Good Wife missed to shows that were way stronger in precursors, like Homeland, Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire. Mad Men and GoT weren’t eligible but were obviously bigger when they hit the winter awards and Downton Abbey won SAG with noms for PGA and Golden Globe Drama.
Watchmen along with The Crown, Game of Thrones and Succession are the only dramas to hit three major guilds.
Game of Thrones is obviously ineligible. The Crown is the strongest as it missed DGA because of their British bias as Riley mentioned. This won’t be a problem at the Emmys. Succession comes second with those Globe wins and Watchmen is third. We have 7 slots at the Emmys and I doubt there are going to be almost half a dozen shows airing in the spring that turn out to be big enough contenders to push Watchmen out.January 11, 2020 at 9:56 am #1203275555
Not with that exact combo, but The Good Wife S3 missed after getting PGA, SAG (×2) and WGA (×2) and on top of that it was nominated for the previous two seasons. The chances of it happening are low but Watchmen could get snubbed.January 11, 2020 at 1:18 am #1203275091

Murder Mystery. Couldn’t even complete it. It was painfully unfunny and had an extremely trite script.December 30, 2019 at 6:43 am #1203253927

Perhaps you’ve heard of a little group of people called the Roy family. They didn’t join the pop culture conversation in 2019 — the show debuted on HBO in June 2018 — but semi-fictional media magnate Logan Roy and his brethren certainly dominated it. For the final Entertainers of the Year cover story, EW spoke to Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, and Jeremy Strong (otherwise known as Shiv, Roman, and Kendall Roy) and found out that they’re not filthy rich a–holes — they just play them really well on TV.
I’ll be so pissed if they don’t get their due at the Emmys. Literally everyone seems to know how deserving they are of recognition, except the industry apparently.December 11, 2019 at 7:35 am #1203230986
OMG, Billy Porter was snubbed!December 11, 2019 at 7:22 am #1203230871
All four Comedy and Drama categories have two people from the same show getting nominated so I don’t think vote-splitting was the reason BLL missed in Individual.December 11, 2019 at 7:16 am #1203230783
This is Us dropped from Ensemble, Veep not getting anything, Billy Crudup?!December 11, 2019 at 7:14 am #1203230747
Emily Watson made it in? I’m happy for her. Could Harris win maybe?December 11, 2019 at 7:03 am #1203230612
Watchmen has gotten in at WGA, ADG, CDG and now ACE Eddie. It only missed at CAS, conversely the only place Stranger Things has made it in so far.December 9, 2019 at 6:58 pm #1203228211
Stranger Things couldn’t even get in at ADG.💀
