SQ had one director so it would have only got one nom…not really sure what’s up with your last few lines, we should stop talking because DGA overrated one show?
You got me there and no I’m not saying stop talking. Whether the DGA “overrated” Succession… or not… it is telling that one of the guilds voted for Succession so heavily that it got in all 5 spots. SQ’s chances for series over Succession is like 1% at this point.January 26, 2022 at 6:14 pm #1204752166
I love Succession but 5/5 is a bit too much imo. I get that it was a weak season for Drama series overall but there were deserving shows in contention.
Succession episode 4 maybe should’ve been left out but the other 4 episodes were deserving. THT is the only real snub here. Succession had virtually no competition with the dramas that were eligible besides handmaids and possibly the morning show. I think even if Squid Game were eligible here, it would’ve only taken one spot. Succession is clearly a lock to win the Emmy again. I’m done hearing it’s SQ vs. Succession after these noms. No, it’s Succession. Throw in the towel.January 15, 2022 at 8:05 pm #1204730663
The main thing I took from these noms is Mike Faist is getting in at the Oscars.January 15, 2022 at 8:00 pm #1204730648
It’s so sad how many people aren’t predicting Mike Faist right now in the prediction center “expert” section. It’s pretty obvious the academy is about to go all out for West Side Story.January 14, 2022 at 12:15 am #1204726244
Succession is such an easy win for drama 🤣January 12, 2022 at 8:32 pm #1204723429
I’ll remind this forum that The Morning Show received FOUR nominations. Crudup and Aniston are very much in contention to win. I just think Strong has too much goodwill right now (Thanks to The New Yorker) and I don’t see this vote-splitting happening here, right now. Everybody simply lost their minds over the finale of Episode 8, and it helps that it’s the only character the public sympathizes with (for some reason) to the point of rooting for him. At the Emmys is a completely different story as they are in SEPTEMBER, and Netflix will likely put up a monster campaign for the cast of Squid Game.
Who cares? Succession is probably sweeping the Emmys. The Academy has more class than the fashion models and the internet influencers that make up a good portion of SAG and only watch Netflix. The Emmys don’t like to stray. THT won because GoT had an off-year and yes, it was the best show that year. And yes, The Crown won last year but versus what exactly? Netflix can campaign all they want but when the Emmys crown a king, they crown a king. Squid Game will probably overperform with Emmy Nominations and it will be like 2020 with the whole Ozark vs Succession thing and we know how that turned out. Succession has too big of a fanbase within the Academy much like Breaking Bad, Veep, and Game of Thrones. Squid Game and Morning Show’s best bet is at SAG. And btw to say Jeremy is only getting buzz because of that New Yorker article is an insult to acting. Yeah, it got him buzz but don’t act like that’s why he’s winning and not deserving.January 12, 2022 at 7:12 pm #1204723185
Hoyeon is the 2nd Asian actress this century with a tv sag nom. The collapse if she and Sandra both win and make history!!!
I mean, that’s awesome and all… but this award is Snook’s to lose. If Hoyeon deserved it over Snook I would be all over this, but no.January 12, 2022 at 11:30 am #1204721328
I would say Jeremy season 1, Jeremy season 2, and Cox for season 3 but if Jeremy wins again this year, I really don’t think Cox will ever beat him. Which sucks. I do want them each to get at least one.January 12, 2022 at 11:20 am #1204721274
Wbk. Had the show missed overall, I would’ve been okay since I know the show is not very well watched, but Isaac made the cut. So, I really don’t understand how she missed for Jean Smart, of all people. Julianne Nicholson, at least, would’ve made more sense, since she won the Emmy.
Yeah, honestly, Jean was good but she wasn’t good enough to get in over either Julianne or Jess. It’s kind of how I knew the nominations were about to get messy.January 12, 2022 at 11:08 am #1204721163
I was skeptical of Strong splitting votes with Cox and Culkin, but recalled even Bill Hader split votes with Henry Winkler with this group of voters.
Bill Hader isn’t in the same position as Strong. Strong hasn’t lost besides the TCA and has never split with Cox before even at the Globes. Hader lost outside the Emmys. If anyone will beat the SAG vote split it’s Jeremy.Not now
