1.

The final season was, to put it mildly, highly polarizing. If this was a stronger year for this category (The Crown, The Handmaid's Tale and Stranger Things' teams have to be kicking themselves for not hitting the qualification deadline) I'd be concerned. As is, I still think it's the likely winner. That said, a lot can change in the course of a few months.

2.

One of the few remaining previous nominees this year; it's highly unlikely that it wins, but it would be a stunner if it misses out on a nomination.

3.

The buzziest of the potential first-time nominees. It's second season didn't quite reach the level of acclaim as the first, but it's a weak category this year and Eve appears to have heat behind it. Likely in.

4.

If this was a stronger year, I'd have major reservations about This Is Us scoring a third nominations. While still acclaimed, the show had more detractors this season, especially towards it's second half. It still has the support of the actors' branch (it's won two straight SAG Ensemble awards) though, and, again, this category is much lighter than in previous years. Probably in.

5.

While the critics were a bit split on it, audiences and, more importantly, industry guilds went over the moon for Ozark's second season. It scored top nominations at the DGA, PGA, SAG (where it lead all television nominees) and WGA awards. It's not a lock, but it's certainly got the industry support necessary for a series nomination (and, yet again, this is a weaker field).

6.

Did surprisingly strong at the guild awards earlier in the year (it's only miss was the SAG awards), and has that rare sheen of a prestige, critical smash. Strong guild support, as well as HBO backing, make this a strong contender.

7.

While there's nothing certain about this year's lineup, the above six look, at varying levels, like strong contenders. Past those... offering are slim with, in my eyes, only about two solid contenders, and one that's got an outside shot. The #7 spot, for me (and most prognosticators) comes down to Homecoming and Pose. Both scored top nominations at the Critics' Choice and Golden Globe Awards, as well as WGA nominations for Best New Series. Homecoming does have an important SAG nomination (for Best Actress), and a few more craft guild nods (Art Directors, Editors), as well as an Oscar winner headlining. That said, I don't think that the series ever attracted the heat that many expected; it was upstaged everywhere that it was nominated, never scoring a win, nor starting much of a conversation. It's half-hour runtime may also turn some traditional voters off to putting it in the same league as one-hour series. Pose, on the other hand, has been championed as an example of powerful and unique LGBTQ representation, has a traditional runtime, and has perennial nominee/winner Ryan Murphy attached to it. Neither FX nor Amazon have a great record here, but my gut is saying the former will push it's show over the finish line. It's a coin flip here.

Other Possibilities

9.

There's always a chance that voter's may just want a propulsive, compulsively watchable thriller here; one that's, really, just pure tension. It's done surprisingly well since it's release on Netflix last fall, and could surprise again.

1.

Guaranteed nominee, and likely winner.

2.

An exceedingly close runner-up at the moment that could, easily, spoil Veep's final season.

3.

Probably still too dark to ever win, Barry is, nevertheless, a lock for it's second straight series nomination.

4.

Despite a somewhat muted critical response, The Kominsky Method has two Oscar winning leads, Netflix backing, and major backing from the Actors' branch (it scored three SAG nods). Nothing beyond the top three are locked in, but this looks like a given.

5.

While it didn't receive the coverage that the first season did, GLOW's second season scored top nominations at the PGA, SAG and WGA awards; i.e. everything you need to score an Emmy series nomination. Not a lock, but the nominations hint at continued Emmy success.

6.

After a few years of critical acclaim, The Good Place finally made the jump to major awards' support in the past year; not only did it score two Emmy nominations last year, but went on to score top nods at the PGA and WGA awards, a potent precursor combination. With three new slots available from last year (Silicon Valley didn't meet the cutoff; Atlanta and Curb Your Enthusiasm took the year off), guild support will play an important role here, and The Good Place appears to have it.

7.

There are a lot of contenders for the seventh slot this year, or even eighth (this category went there last year). Black-ish and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt have been perennial nominees for awhile, and Fleabag is a critical darling that missed for it's first season, in a tougher nominee field. Hell, even The Big Bang Theory could score a going away gift. That said, each feel like they got more negatives than positives this time around. Black-ish has no buzz, and missed out on guild support (even SAG snubbed it; while this is Kimmy Schmidt's last outing, the season came out so long ago, to so little fanfare, that I'm not sure it can make it for a fifth nomination in such a crowded field; The Big Bang Theory's been gone so long that I doubt it'll make much of a sentimental play. Fleabag has rapturous reviews, and creator/star Phoebe Waller-Bridge scored a nomination for last year writing Killing Eve, so it's, to me, got the strongest claim to the last spot. Unfortunately for it, my gut is telling me that it'll be usurped by Netflix's debuting Russian Doll, which was also a critical darling, and has Emmy favorite's backing it (Emmy winner Amy Poelher is a creator). It's a toss-up between any of these shows, but I believe in Netflix to score three series this time out.

1.

In a very crowded field (this category should consider extending to seven nominees), Escape at Dannemora looks to be the only guaranteed nominee.

2.

The weakest series contending this year is, also, the most awards-ready player; it's got stars playing stars, with FX backing and various famous collaborators. It would be surprising to see this win, but it'll certainly be nominated.

3.

Here's where things get crowded. Sharp Objects is a top-notch contender with off the charts pedigree, strong reviews, and guild backing (DGA, PGA, SAG, WGA). That said, HBO has three major contenders here this year, with the other premiering much later in the qualifying window; i.e. they're fresher in voters minds. The series was, also, a little to opaque for some viewers, which is most likely why it never won any of those guild awards it was nominated for (respected more than loved). I don't think that that'll be enough to throw Objects off it's preordained course, but it looks to be the most vulnerable of the top three.

4.

Once considered, at most, a fringe player, Chernobyl has become a very strong player in this field. Not only were critical reviews rapturous, but audiences, stunningly, latched onto it (it's the highest rated series ever on IMDb). It's a very saturated category this year, but the five-parter has a great deal of momentum at the moment, as well as HBO campaigning it. While it is a major possibility that Sharp Objects, or even True Detective, could steal some of it's thunder, this appears to be the HBO miniseries of the moment.

5.

The last spot has a lot of possibilities, but I am, again, inclined to go for a recently released series over older ones. To my mind, the #5 spot comes down to True Detective, A Very English Scandal, and When They See Us. Each has a solid claim; Detective had a major comeback season, and is the favorite in another category; Scandal got strong reviews, and did well early in the year for awards (Amazon, too, has been pushing it hard); Us is the most recent release, reviews have been uniformly strong, and it's Netflix's only contender here. As mentioned above, the recent When They See Us has my gut; strong reviews, Netflix backing, and an incendiary, timely story, as well as pedigree names involved (Ava DuVernay, Oprah Winfrey, Robert De Niro). Could be any one of them, if not all three.

Other Possibilities


6.

Strong reviews, and Amazon scored it some plaudits early in the year, but I think it was so long ago, and so brief a run (three episodes makes it the shortest of the bunch) that voters will, most likely, only look to it for acting noms.

7.

In a weaker year it would thrive; this year, it looks tough. Ali is the frontrunner for actor though, and lead winners often correlate to, at least, a series nom. Could squeak in.

1.

The TV movie category is about on par with last year; a Black Mirror, a bunch of HBO, and some outliers that would make interesting contenders. Of this year's crop, only #1 and #2 are absolute locks, either having a strong chance of winning. The only question was; which is one, and which is two? After some thought, I'm slotting Deadwood in the top spot. It's the last chance the TV academy will have to honor the legendary series, and Black Mirror's entry isn't a particularly strong one.

2.

Could easily win, thanks to it's innovative interactive storytelling and/or voter laziness.

3.

After that, thing's get pretty bland. King Lear looks to be the strongest of what's left, thanks to marquee names and guild support (SAG and PGA noms).

4.

Timeliness, HBO, Cumberbatch; enough for me.

People who added this item 71 Average listal rating (41 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.2

1.

Patricia Arquette- Escape at Dannemora
She won all the major precursors for her volatile turn in the miniseries frontrunner. This is a very strong year for this category, but she still has to be at the top of the list.

2.

Amy Adams- Sharp Onjects
While she is, certainly, not the lock to win that many presumed she was last summer, it would be a major shock to see her snubbed.

3.

Michelle Williams- Fosse/Verdon
A lock for a nomination.

4.

Emma Stone- Maniac
She's an Oscar winner who scored a SAG nod earlier in the year, in a front loaded category; probably in. The show came out so long ago though, and was, too, quite divisive, that I won't go as far as to call her a lock. Looks very strong though.

5.

Joey King- The Act
After those first four, the field gets pretty wild. There are several returning nominees/winners, as well as contenders long overdue for a nomination and breakout performers looking for their moment. In following that line of thinking, King gave a breakout turn in The Act, which is a legitimate contender in several miniseries races, including a lock for a supporting actress nomination. She may lose out to returning favorites, but my gut says that she'll have enough staying power to make the cut.

6.

Marisa Tomei- Live in Front of a Studio Audience
While it might seem like a longshot, last year proved that noteworthy live performances can hit like gangbusters in acting categories (Jesus Christ Superstar and SNL scored eight spots, combined). Live was a noteworthy event, one that plays to voter nostalgia for both the legendary shows it performed, and the days of live event television. Of the cast, it would appear that Tomei's Edith Bunker was the standout of the cast, stealing each scene she was in. While I could be blowing smoke, this is the kind of surprise that could certainly upend many predictions, and I think I'm getting in on the ground floor.

Other Possibilities


7.

Paula Malcolmson- Deadwood: The Movie
She's a longshot, but she's got a lot aiding her chances; the film just came out, she steals almost every scene she's in, and she's an actress that feels due for some sort of recognition. While I wasn't quite sold enough to place her in my top six, I could easily see her being the surprise of the category.

8.

Ruth Wilson- Mrs. Wilson
Wilson gives another acclaimed performance, this time with the added novelty of playing her actual grandmother in a PBS period miniseries. It's strong work, and the real life story could be catnip to many voters, and she's do for a nomination, but I'm not sure that the series had much staying power. This is a category with a lot of contenders, and I think there'll be voters looking for something a little more lively and/or outside the box. That said, she's a strong bet.

9.

Connie Britton- Dirty John
She scored Golden Globe and Critics' Choice Awards nominations, so she's definitely in the hunt. That said, this category wasn't as loaded as it was for those awards, and the she came and went so long ago that I'm not sure that she'll be able to hold that much support. Still, a very viable contender.

10.

Julianna Margulies- The Hot Zone
She's a multiple Emmy winner going up for a couple of wide open spots; she's a solid contender. The Hot Zone wasn't quite an attention getter though, and the show didn't make much of an impact. That said, National Geographic has proven themselves adept at scoring surprise nominations (both Genius seasons proving that), so it wouldn't be a major surprise to see her score another nomination.

1.

Jason Bateman- Ozark
He won the SAG award, and his show is looking to make a major increase in nominations this year; locked in, and has a strong chance at winning.

2.

Bob Odenkirk- Better Call Saul
Lock, could also win.

3.

Sterling K. Brown- This Is Us
His storyline was divisive this year, and this looks to be a shifting year for the category, but Brown is a multiple winner, and a well-liked presence. Should be in.

4.

Richard Madden- Bodyguard
While Golden Globe wins shouldn't be considered a great barometer for Emmy success, this is one of the few categories that has a pretty good track record in correlating. Madden's having a breakout year, too, thanks to the series, and Netflix will, likely, give him a solid push. Not a lock, but he's looking like a strong contender for a nomination.

5.

Kit Harrington- Game of Thrones
While the season's divisiveness might hurt it in a couple of areas, I think the actors are, more or less, exempt. Harrington's the only actor submitted in lead, as he was last year, and the field looks a bit thinner this time out. I'm guessing that he had enough big moments, as well as the show's final season momentum, to score his second nomination (he was nominated for the sixth season in supporting). Another major factor helping him; he's one of only two legitimate HBO contenders, and he's got the bigger show behind him.

6.

Milo Ventimiglia- This Is Us
Though he had a major, emotional arc in the first half of the season, the fact that Ventimiglia didn't factor much into the back half of This Is Us's season might cost him this year. While I still think he'll hang on for a third nomination, it's very close this time out with my #7 pick.

7.

Billy Porter- Pose
While he's much more of a supporting player, Pose has helped Porter have a breakout year. He scored Golden Globe and Critics' Choice Awards nominations, stole nearly every scene of the series that he was in, and is the only candidate in this category for the major contending series. He could easily overtake #5 or #6 if the category does go over, but I think this one is strong enough that we'll see seven names here.

Other Possibilities


8.

Brian Cox- Succession
Cox could, easily, sneak in here; he's a respected Emmy winner, from a show looking to make a big impact, with HBO backing. I think it's such an ensemble show and, while exceptional, he hasn't been mentioned anywhere else, that he won't quite have enough to make it in. I could definitely see it happening though.

9.

Stephan James- Homecoming
A solid contender, with a Golden Globe nod to boot, but I'm just not sold on Homecoming being the every category contender that some are. He does strong work, but it feels like the eight men above are mentioned much more in the conversation than James. Could make, but it feels like a longshot.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus- Veep
She's winning her seventh for Veep here. Mark it, it's happening.

2.

Rachel Brosnahan- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
After winning last year, she'll have to settle for runner-up this time out.

3.

Natasha Lyonne- Russian Doll
Doll could have a very big nomination morning, and Lyonne's work in front of and behind the camera is a huge reason for it. Likely in.

4.

Allison Janney- Mom
I could easily see her missing the cut this year, but going with Janney has been a safe bet in the past, so I'll stick with her until she misses.

5.

Pamela Adlon- Better Things
It's a strong year for this category, but if Adlon could make it for the first two seasons, it would be somewhat surprising to see her left out for the much heralded third season. Not that safe, but I think she'll hang on for another season.

6.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge- Fleabag
With the second season of the critical darling Fleabag hitting at just the right time, and Waller-Bridge's increased name recognition since the first season (she was nominated last year for writing Killing Eve), I think she's got a very good chance of scoring a nomination here this time. There's a lot of returning contenders, but this category usually goes for about two to three first-time nominees, and she'd pair nicely with Lyonne above. It's a crowded field, but Waller-Bridge appears to have the momentum.

Other Possibilities


7.

Lily Tomlin- Grace and Frankie
She's been nominated for the four previous seasons of Grace and Frankie, and she's a comedy legend. It's highly possible, possibly even probable, that she'll make it in again, but I'm thinking that the competition here will finally win out.

8.

Tracee Ellis Ross- Black-ish
She's been nominated for the past three years, but this is a very strong category this year, and Black-ish doesn't seem to have much heat this time out. Definitely possible, I'm not seeing it.

9.

Allison Brie- GLOW
Brie did more strong work in the second season of GLOW, and she's coming off another combination of Golden Globe/SAG nominations. The same thing happened to her last year though, and the field wasn't as crowded as it is now. Solid possibility, but not looking the most likely.

10.

Issa Rae- Insecure
Surprised here last year but, again, this is a stronger field, and Insecure's latest season came out a long time ago; i.e. there are a lot of show's fresher on voters' minds.

1.

Mahershala Ali- True Detective
He gave an exceptional performance, and is coming off his second Oscar; he's a lock.

2.

Sam Rockwell- Fosse/Verdon
Another recent Oscar winner, this one playing yet another legendary Oscar winner; lock, will contend for the Emmy.

3.

Hugh Grant- A Very British Scandal
He's scored all the precursors he needs, and his performance was highly acclaimed. I'd say he's safe, but only #1 and #2 look like true locks. About 85%.

4.

Ian McShane- Deadwood: The Movie
After 13 years, McShane's Al Swearengen is back in full force, even in the face of ailing health. With momentum building for the film, as well as many seeing him as due for recognition for playing the character (he was nominated once in three seasons). I think he has the momentum, but I wouldn't say he's locked in, as we've seen beloved series returns that didn't go over with Emmy voters (looking at Twin Peaks).

5.

Benicio Del Toro- Escape at Dannemora
He got strong notices, and he's in the early favorite to take the category, so he should be a stronger bet than he is. He was snubbed by SAG and the Golden Globes earlier in the year though, with many, seemingly, paying much more attention to Arquette's work. The end-year awards were a bit more competitive though, with this race looking to have a bit more open space, looking to be filled by big names in hit shows. He's not quite safe, but it would be a bit surprising to see him miss in this field.

6.

Jared Harris- Chernobyl
Chernobyl is surging right now; it's critically acclaimed, and had/has audiences captivated. There are a lot of reasons for this; writing, directing, craft, etc. Another major reason is, naturally, the acting, and Harris is front and center for the series, garnering some of the best reviews and press of his career. It gets a bit chippy for the last spot here, but being the lead of a hit series, as well as doing exceptional work in it, leads me to believe that he'll make the cut.

Other Possibilities


7.

Anthony Hopkins- King Lear
He scored a SAG nod, and he's Anthony Hopkins, but that might not be enough this time. He's a solid bet but, outside of tv movie and another acting race, this category just looks to have too much strong competition for him to ride his recognition in for a nomination. Could easily do so though.

8.

Jharrel Jerome- When They See Us
Another late entry that's been picking up a lot of steam; When They See Us has an exceptional ensemble cast, any of which could make a real mark in the acting categories. Jerome is the only actor submitted in the lead category, on the men's side, and, arguably, has the showiest role; he's the only actor to play one of the imprisoned Central Park Five from adolescence to adulthood. This is a strong category with a litany of recognizable faces, but if a newcomer were to leapfrog into the race, it'd likely be Jerome (especially if this category goes to seven). I'm not quite sold yet, but his nomination is a definite possibility.

9.

Benedict Cumberbatch- Brexit
He's been, essentially, camped out in this category for years (he's tied for the second most nominations ever in this category), but I don't think Brexit has enough heat to sweep him into the category. That said, he's always here, so it's possible.

1.

Sandra Oh- Killing Eve
A nomination lock, and the likely frontrunner (at the moment).

2.

Laura Linney- Ozark
With Ozark's second season looking to make a big jump in number of nominations, Linney seems like a natural nominee, as she dominated the season. She scored a SAG nomination this year (to the point's detriment, she was also nominated there for the first season and was snubbed last year), and this year has a number of turnovers from last year; i.e. it looks very good for her this time.

3.

Julia Roberts- Homecoming
Another lock. While I'm not sold on the show's chances overall, it would be a stunner if Roberts was snubbed.

4.

Jodie Comer- Killing Eve
With the high turnover from last year (all but one nominee from last year is eligible, and was Comer's costar), Comer has a very good shot, if not highly likely, of being nominated this year. I wouldn't say a lock, but she looks damn safe.

5.

Emilia Clarke- Game of Thrones
Despite the backlash to her character's turn this season, Clarke received, arguably, the best reviews of her career for the show's final season. Add that with the flux state that this category is in, and I think she'll score a final nod for Game of Thrones.

6.

Robin Wright- House of Cards
Most have forgotten, or want to forget, about House of Cards. That said, this is a pretty slim category this year, outside of those top five. There are only about two or three viable candidates for this last spot and, of them, Wright looks like the safest choice. She's been nominated for every other season, she scored another SAG nod, and many would see nominating her for a Spacey-less season of Cards as one last fuck you to the disgraced star. Not a lock, but my gut says she'll get a goodbye nomination.

Other Possibilities


7.

Christine Baranski- The Good Fight
She scored six nominations for the role on The Good Wife, and could seriously benefit from the depleted field this year. Could, easily, take the final spot, though I'm not quite sold. I'm more in a "believe it when it happens" mood about The Good Fight being an Emmy presence.

8.

MJ Rodriguez- Pose
Rodriguez gave a breakout performance in a hot new series this year, not to mention that her nomination would be a huge milestone for the awards' body (she'd be the first transgender person nominated in a lead role). If Pose has a strong presence, she could definitely make the cut, but my gut says that Academy favorites will control this category.

1.

Bill Hader- Barry
Last year's winner looks to be the favorite again this year, but could be usurped by some big names.

2.

Michael Douglas- The Kominsky Method
The Hollywood legend will undoubtedly be nominated, and could easily take the prize.

3.

Ted Danson- The Good Place
With this category looking to have a decent amount of turnover this year, Danson appears to be one of the few holdovers. He broke into the category last year, in a tougher year, and The Good Place is, certainly, on a more prominent footing this time out. Not a lock, but looking highly probable.

4.

Don Cheadle- Black Monday
Not many people watched it, and the reviews weren't great, but Cheadle is highly respected, Showtime is a strong campaigner here, and if they could give him four nominations for a non-player like House of Lies, then he can probably make it in in a slim year like this one.

5.

Jim Carrey- Kidding
Showtime has always been good at campaigning actors here, and Carrey is one of their more high-profile possibilities this year. While it's quite possible that the series' odd tone, as well as it's age (it aired last fall) will hinder voters. Showtime is a strong player though, and Carrey is a big name that could score on recognition alone (it also helps that this is a pretty barren field this time out).

6.

Anthony Anderson- Black-ish
Black-ish, as I've mentioned above, doesn't look like it has the traction it's had in previous years. While it's highly possible that someone could take this spot (or overtake #4 or #5, for that matter), I think Anderson can pull it out for his fifth nomination. He was nominated for the first season, which wasn't nominated otherwise, and the other possibilities look a bit slim down the line. Still, anything could happen...

Other Possibilities


7.

William H. Macy- Shameless
He's been nominated for the past five years, and has won three SAG awards for the role, but it looks like Macy's streak will end this year. Showtime has bigger, newer contenders this year, and Macy's proximity, and even complicity, in his wife Felicity Huffman's crime has to have tainted his perception. While it's still highly possible, it might just be too strange a situation for voters.

8.

Jim Parsons- The Big Bang Theory
It's been five years since his last nomination (and win), and the series hasn't really been much of a player outside of guest acting (and directing, because they made a rule change so it could get nominated). This is a slim field though, and a little nostalgia could go a long way for Parsons. I don't see it, but it wouldn't be the biggest surprise.

9.

Ricky Gervais- After Life
Nobody remembers it, it got decidedly mixed reviews upon release, and public perception of Gervais has been trending down for years, but he's won this category before, and surprised with a nomination for Derek. He's got a fan base, apparently, and they could score him another nomination. Doesn't look highly likely, but it wouldn't be the biggest stunner.

10.

Sacha Baron Cohen- Who Is America?
Though it wasn't the best received series, there are many that respect Baron Cohen's reckless abandon for his work. That respect, coupled with Showtime's campaign savvy, could put him the final six. That said, it doesn't feel that likely, as the series came out so long ago and, I expect, many will see it as more of an experiment than a performance.

Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series

People who added this item 92 Average listal rating (58 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.4

1.

Lena Headey- Game of Thrones
Despite her work being an, mostly, extended cameo in the show's final season, and the overabundance of GOT women here this year, it would be a surprise to see Headey miss the cut. She's been nominated four times here, several of which she looked like the favorite to win (i.e. she's due), and, even in those few scenes that she had, she was still a powerful presence in her scenes. Calling her a lock might jinx it, but she feels close to one.

2.

Julia Garner- Ozark
She was, likely, pretty close last year to making the cut, but a combination of the high level of turnover in this category (Headey is the only returning contender from the seven-woman field) and Garner's precursor respect (she scored a surprise SAG nomination) make her a likely nominee. If the GOT women split votes, she may even take the category.

3.

Maisie Williams- Game of Thrones
Williams was, likely, the best served of the Thrones women in this category, and she's been nominated here before; i.e. that's good enough for me to assume she'll score her second nomination.

4.

Sophie Turner- Game of Thrones
The women of GOT became a genuine force as the series progressed, with few evolving the way that Sansa did. In turn, Turner's performance did the same, selling the character's transition frightened prisoner to Westerosi power player. While she could easily be snubbed, I think Thrones nostalgia will give the series a major boost in every category.

5.

Rhea Seehorn- Better Call Saul
Arguably the most deserving, Seehorn is, also, the one I worry about most here. It's the kind of quiet, contained character work that deserves countless accolades, but rarely gets rewarded. While I think the turnover from last year, and her place in one of this category's favorite series, will help her make the jump into the category, I'm not 100% certain.

6.

Susan Kelechi Watson- This Is Us
There a wide variety of contenders for the last spot, but Watson seems like the safest bet. She's on a, likely, drama series nominee, her character was, finally, given something to do this season, and she got the chance to step up, and she nailed it. Not a done deal (this is a category that doesn't really think outside the box, and there are a litany of big names that could usurp her), but, again, she's the safest pick in a group of wild cards.

7.

Kathy Bates- American Horror Story: Apocalypse
Okay, so maybe I'm going outside the box for the last spot. This category went to seven last year and, while it's rare for an acting category to go over six two straight years (it's never happened), I'm just having an itching feeling that Bates is gonna pull off the shocker of the year nod. While it's uncertain what AHS's presence will be this year, Bates is a force with the TV Academy; she's been nominated 13 times, and won twice, including for an AHS season (Coven). While Hawes or Shaw or even Gwendoline Christie, women who've got some growing momentum, could take #6 or and potential #7 (hell, this one could go to eight), I just can't shake the feeling that Bates is going to show up. Now, watch me be wrong.

1.

Ben Whishaw- A Very English Scandal
This is a pretty wonky category, with a lot of big names in small roles and small names in big roles. No matter how the rest of the category shakes out, one thing is for certain; Whishaw is getting nominated, and likely winning.

2.

Paul Dano- Escape at Dannemora
After Whishaw, this category gets exceedingly scattered. There are a lot of contenders, but Dano, to me, feels the safest. He's, essentially, one of the show's co-leads, and his work is just as strong as his costars.

3.

Michael Kenneth Williams- When They See Us
Descriptions will fail me going forward, because this category is just a clusterfuck. Williams is a well-respected, multi-nominated actor in another acclaimed role. Good enough for me.

4.

Stephen Dorff- True Detective
Probably a longshot, but this category likes longshots.

5.

George Clooney- Catch-22
He's barely in the series, maybe 15 minutes in 3 episodes, but's he's also George Clooney, so that's probably enough.

6.

Gerald McRaney- Deadwood: The Movie
He's become an Emmy favorite over the years, he's won one for two nominations on This Is Us, and he's a major force in Deadwood. I don't know; just a gut feeling.

Other Possibilities


7.

Kyle Chandler- Catch-22
He's an Emmy-winning, multi-nominated actor who's got a scene-stealing role in the miniseries. That said, I don't think the series is going to be a big player, and Clooney's possible nomination, most likely, the result of a feeling of obligation, not merit; i.e. outside him, the series may not thrive.

1.

Alex Borstein- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
She won last year and was, once again, a major force in the hit series' second season. She be here.

2.

Anna Chlumsky- Veep
She's been nominated for the past five seasons of Veep, a few, of which, she had much less to do than she did in the series' final season. While she might not take the award, it would be a major surprise to see her left out.

3.

Kate McKinnon- Saturday Night Live
McKinnon's been here for the past five years, won twice, and continues to be SNL's go-to performer; she'll be in.

4.

Marin Hinkle- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
After those top three, there are a lot of different ways that this category could shake out. I've redone these last few several times, but in each of them Hinkle's appeared. She's been on television for a long time, and she's, finally, scored something close to a breakout role on Maisel. I think her work, the feeling that she's due for recognition, and love for the show overall will score her her first nod.

5.

Aidy Bryant- Saturday Night Live
Despite her falling out of a lot of predictions, I still think that voter's respect that hell out of SNL, and SNL women in particular. While I don't think Leslie Jones had enough this year to make it back for a third nomination, Bryant is almost always finds a way to bring the goods, lighting up even banal sketches. It's a close call, but I think Bryant will be in.

6.

Olivia Colman- Fleabag
For my last spot, it came down to Colman and Gilpin, with the former winning out. While Gilpin was the only performer to score a nom for GLOW last year, and remains the strongest chance to score on this year, the series' is looking like it may fall out of favor (I still think it'll eek out a series nod), and Fleabag has the momentum at just the right time. Also a plus for Colman; the Oscar factor. She had a successful Oscar season, with a lot of voters taking note of her; i.e. they may want to invite her to their party, too. It's a close one, with both possibly being usurped by previous winners Laurie Metcalf and Megan Mullally, or newcomers like D'Arcy Carden and Sarah Goldberg.

1.

Peter Dinklage- Game of Thrones
A guaranteed nominee. With another win, he'll have the most wins ever in this category, four.

2.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau- Game of Thrones
He broke into the field last year and, with he and Dinklage the only returning nominees from that field, looks to take a victory lap nomination.

3.

Jonathan Banks- Better Call Saul
Banks has been nominated for all three seasons of Saul, and this is a field with high turnover; i.e. he'd probably make it into a tougher field, so this should be an easy one.

4.

Kieran Culkin- Succession
After those top three, things get a bit scattered. A lot of returning favorites in new roles, and several actors in surging series looking to ride the momentum. Of the bunch, Culkin looks to have the best shot. Succession is just too strong of a show not to be a player here, and his scene-stealing work is the stuff of typical Emmy fare. While he could have a little trouble from other castmates, Matthew Macfadyen would be an inspired choice, I think he'll take a spot.

5.

Peter Mullan- Ozark
After Culkin, things get incredibly hard to crack; he's not even a lock, but feels like on compared to the rest. Most have Cannavale and Kelly in #5 and #6, and they're smart choices; Cannavale's won two Emmys, including in this category, in an incredibly competitive year. He's an Academy favorite. Kelly, too, has a solid record; he's managed to score three straight nominations for House of Cards, each in years that he, really, did not seem likely (I've never once predicted him being nominated, which is not great for my point here). They don't feel quite right for me here though; I've got a hunch that Homecoming is going to be too opaque for a lot of voters, regardless of Amazon's campaigning, and I think most want to forget about House of Cards, or already have. So then, who do I see filling these spots? Mullan seems like enough of an outside the box pick that I'm willing to roll the dice. He's been nominated before, is a respected character actor in a show looking for a big nomination bump, and Netflix has shown a knack for scoring surprise nominees, and winners, here. His work, also, is strong enough, and surprisingly layered enough, that I think he'll get some unexpected looks.

6.

Matthew Macfadyen- Succession
Two nominees from a newcomer would certainly be challenge; one that I think Succession and HBO can handle. While Culkin seems to be the consensus pick for the series, most would concede that Macfadyen's one-of-a-kind character/performance is the show's breakout. Freed from period settings, the actor gives one of the most strangely brilliant performances on TV; one that, I believe, will be hard for voters to deny, especially if they're going to champion Succession is future of the category. It's a longshot, but my gut is telling me to pick him.

Other Possibilities


7.

Bobby Cannavale- Homecoming


8.

Michael Kelly- House of Cards


9.

Justin Hartley- This Is Us
After seemingly like a lock last year, I don't think Hartley can score for the most recent season. Possible, but unlikely.

1.

Patricia Clarkson- Sharp Objects
Heaviest lock here; probable winner.

2.

Patricia Arquette- The Act
Lock; has a legitimate shot of winning two in one night.

3.

Emily Watson- Chernobyl
After the Patricias, this is a category that could go in a lot of different directions, and one very much in flux. Momentum can play a huge role here, which is why I have Watson so high. Chernobyl was a hit, and her steely work, playing a character representing several scientists who risked everything to solve the problem, was quite strong. Add to that the fact that she has, shockingly, never been nominated for an Emmy, and she looks like a solid spoiler contender here.

4.

Carmen Ejogo- True Detective
She was a strong presence in the most recent season of True Detective, and this is a category that, usually, goes for that. Maybe in.

5.

Emma Thompson- King Lear
I'm not sure many remember the film, but Thompson is a beloved figure that could ride her name recognition straight into the category.

6.

Eliza Scanlen- Sharp Objects
Breakout performers usually show up in the supporting categories, and Scanlen looks like the likeliest to breakout here. She did exceptional work in Sharp Objects, and actors working with Jean-Marc Vallée have an incredibly strong record here (Big Little Lies scored five nominations; two in supporting). Another fun fact; eight of the last ten nomination fields in this category have featured multiple nominees from one program, and Objects is, really, the only program with multiple contender. Flimsy, sure, but enough for me.

Other Possibilities


7.

Sally Field- Maniac
She's an acting legend with three Emmys, out of eight nominations, but Maniac doesn't appear to be hitting much with voters, and this is a crowded enough field that she could be nudged out by newer contenders from more well-liked series. Still, a very viable candidate.

8.

Vera Farmiga- When They See Us
A respected actress in a surging contender; a recipe for a surprise nominee.

1.

Alan Arkin- The Kominsky Method
This is a very strong four-way race, with the ordering of #1-#4 not really mattering. That said, Arkin is the easiest to see nominated, so, therefore, he's number one.

2.

Tony Hale- Veep


3.

Henry Winkler- Barry


4.

Tony Shalhoub- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel


5.

Tituss Burgess- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
The last two spots have a lot of newer, fresher contenders that could gain momentum, and overtake previous nominees. That said, outside of last year, this is a category that goes for old hands over new ones, and Burgess has been here for the past four ceremonies. I could, certainly, see him missing out here (Kimmy's goodbye season came and went months ago with little fanfare), but my guess is that they give one last nom to Andromedon.

6.

Kenan Thompson- Saturday Night Live
There are a lot of possibilities for the last spot here, but history tells us that this category loves repeat nominees. Only five times has an actor not been nominated again following their first nomination, when eligible, in the past 20 years. SNL has, in the past decade, been a major force when it comes to acting, with Thompson, arguably, becoming the series' most valuable player, as of late. Not a guarantee, but a strong gut pick.

Other Possibilities


7.

Matt Walsh- Veep
He scored a couple of surprise nominations for the show's fifth and sixth seasons, and remains a strong threat. That said, the series has several major contenders, and this category is much stronger than the years when he broke in; in tough years, it's usually the major surprises that burst through, not the previous picks. Still, Veep's going to have a lot of love this year, so he's a solid pick.

8.

Timothy Simons- Veep
Another major Veep contender who's vulgar, scene-stealing work could certainly sway voters.

9.

Stephen Root- Barry
A respected character actor who had a major season on Barry, a growing Emmy force. Could be a solid dark horse pick, though his nod may be tough; he has to go up against an Emmy-winning costar here, and another major scene-stealing costar.

10.

Anthony Carrigan- Barry
Everybody loves Noho Hank, and his delightful oddity. Carrigan's work is always a standout, and could easily take a surprise spot.

1.

Bill Hader- Barry: "ronny/lily"
There are about four true locks here this time out, but Hader's work has to be the strongest bet. While I'd be surprised if he won, it's just too good, his work on "ronny/lily" is the crowning achievement for the series and, arguably, the best direction on television (and maybe even film) all year. He's in.

2.

Amy Sherman-Palladino- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: "All Alone"
While I'm not exactly sure that "All Alone" is the strongest submission, I think "Midnight at the Concord" would've been stronger, she won last year, and previous winner, almost always, are back again the following year. Lock.

3.

David Mandel- Veep: "Veep"
Both of Veep's submissions will get in (this is a series that scored three nominations two years in a row), but "Veep" is the likeliest of the pair to actually win.

4.

Dale Stern- Veep: "Discovery Weekend"
Explanation above.

5.

Daniel Palladino- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: "We Going to the Catskills!"
This is a category that, typically, goes very hard for the shows that voters love, so you'll see multiple nominees from one show frequently. I don't expect that to change this year, with the category's three big ones (Barry, Maisel and Veep) each submitting multiple episodes. Maisel submitted three, but I think it'll be a very hard bet to get all of them in. That said, it's the returning winner here, the Palladino name is recognizable here, and "Catskills" was one of the show's most memorable diversions, so I think this one'll score the series it's second nomination here.

6.

Mark Cendrowski- The Big Bang Theory: "The Stockholm Syndrome"
After the rule change last year, making in a requirement that the category include at least one multi-camera sitcom, and Cendrowski's nomination then, it stands to reason that he'd score a goodbye nomination for the series' finale. The only multi-camera competition comes from James Burrows, a sitcom legend with the most nominations and wins in this category (24; 5), for his work on Will & Grace. But if he couldn't get in for last year's more noteworthy revival season, it would be a bit surprising to see him here this time around.

7.

Natasha Lyonne- Russian Doll: "Ariadne"
While this is usually a six-nominee category, my expectation is that, with the wide array of contenders, all directing categories will go beyond the usual marker (drama's gone to seven nominees for the past two years). With that in mind, this last one came down to two picks; Lyonne and Alec Berg, for directing "The Audition" from Barry. It was close, but Lyonne's name recognition and Barry already having a major contender here (it'd be tough for Berg's work to compete with "ronny/lily" here) is what sealed the deal. It also helps that the narrative trickery, and visual storytelling of "Ariadne" is a series highligh. Either, both, or, even, neither could get in, but this feels like the right mix.

Alec Berg- Barry: "The Audition"

1.

Miguel Sapochnik- Game of Thrones: "The Long Night"
While the writing was criticized heavily this season, most agreed that the directing was some of the series' finest. Sapochnik went with "The Long Night" over the controversial "The Bells", though I can't imagine he would've had a hard time getting nominated for that one either; he's delivered some of the biggest spectacle that television has ever seen. It would be a stunner to see him snubbed.

2.

David Benioff & D.B. Weiss- Game of Thrones: "The Iron Throne"
Thrones is, almost certainly, scoring two nominations here, as it has for it's last three seasons; the question is which of the other two is also getting in. Sapochnik is good to go, so it comes down to Benioff & Weiss and David Nutter, with, in my opinion, the latters winning out. Nutter is a previous winner here, for season five's "Mother's Mercy", but the creative duo have more notoriety, as well as the series finale which, while divisive, is the bigger accomplishment than "The Last of the Starks". That's another issue I've got with Nutter's submission; of the two he directed this season, he went with the wrong one. While "The Starks" is bigger, featuring a dragon murder no less, "A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms" is one of the series finest, and the consensus pick for episode of the season. It's definitely possible that Nutter is the pick, or even that all three make the cut, but "The Iron Throne"'s got the hype.

3.

Adam McKay- Succession: "Celebration"
While they don't always overlap, DGA winners are, typically, a presence here, and McKay took that award earlier this year. Couple that with the fact that he is an Oscar winning filmmaker, and this is the pilot episode, and I expect to see him nominated. Succession did submit two other episodes though, so there may be a bit of vote splitting. Not enough to break McKay's chances, though.

4.

Jason Bateman- Ozark: "Reparations"
Though he didn't have the directorial presence that he had for the show's first season (he directed two episodes this time, as opposed to the four he did last time), he's still a very well known director/star of a, likely, drama series nominee. It may be a bit more difficult this time, with four episodes submitted, but I expect that to hinder the series' chances of scoring multiple nominations more so than Bateman's individual odds.

5.

Ryan Murphy- Pose: "Pilot"
Pose is a big, flashy show that has a, very noticeable, directorial influence for creator Ryan Murphy, which bodes well for his chances here. While he's only been nominated once in this category (for Nip/Tuck), he's scored six other directing nominations, including two wins (one coming last year), and that's just for directing. He's an Emmy favorite, and I think that'll carry him to another nomination, even past the three other submissions the show made in this category (though any, or multiple, could make the cut).

6.

Daina Reid- The Handmaid's Tale: "Holly"
Here's where things get a bit nutty. Despite not meeting the cutoff to compete in the drama and series' acting races, apparently The Handmaid's Tale can compete for individual achievements (i.e. directing, writing, craft), for episodes that aired from it's second season that aired during the eligibility period. It's a weird technicality that, while fairly facetious, may wield the series with some exceedingly noteworthy nominations. The show submitted two episodes for consideration; Reid's "Holly", and Mike Barker's "The Word". While Barker is the steadier hand behind the camera (he's directed eight of the series' 28 total episodes), his episode, the show's finale, was highly controversial, while Reid's work is the more noticeable, more intimate, and more lauded (it netted her a DGA nomination earlier in the year). While it could easily be Barker or, just as easily, neither, I think respect for the show's craft will carry it to a surprise nomination here.

7.

Vince Gilligan- Better Call Saul: "Wiedersehen "
AMC is very lucky when it comes to scoring nominations, because they are terrible at campaign strategy. Case in point; they've submitted nine out of the season's ten episodes for nomination consideration. With so much vote splitting, for a season that didn't really have any true standout episode, it should be impossible for the series to score here. And yet, I'm predicting a nomination. Why? First off, Saul submitted almost as many episodes for it's last season, seven, but still was able to get nominated. While there are too many names here, I think Gilligan is such a standout name that voters will see him, and use him to recognize the series' direction as a whole (much like, I assume, they did last time). It also helps that I see the remaining contenders as being on the downturn; while Esmail did direct the whole series, my feelings about Homecoming's chances extend to here as well. It also doesn't help that, I think, many voters will turn their noses up at the series half-hour runtime; i.e. "Yeah, he directed it all, but it's not like he directed that much. Nutter has a solid shot, but if Thrones could score three slots for it's more broadly supported fifth, sixth, seventh seasons, I find it unlikely that they'll get all of their submissions here. Pose, I think, is too young, and without the sufficient momentum, to score more than one slot. Ozark could get another in here, like last year, but they submitted four episodes in tough field; i.e. possible, though I don't see it. Bodyguard is an interesting one that I could see surprising, but my feeling is that this category is just too crowded for it to standout.

1.

Ben Stiller- Escape at Dannemora
Guaranteed nominee. Has a great shot at winning.

2.

Jean-Marc Vallée- Sharp Objects
Probably safe, though he's won I could see both winning, or being snubbed. While the show doesn't really have much momentum, he won this category just two years ago, directed the whole series, and has HBO backing.

3.

Ava DuVernay- When They See Us
Again, directing the whole series is a big positive for voters, and it, also, help's when you're an Oscar nominated filmmaker. Not a lock, but I'm betting she'll be an easy pick for voters here.

4.

Johan Renck- Chernobyl
With the momentum this one has, and the auteur-ish feel of the project, I'd say Renck's got the filmmaker respect needed for a nomination here.

5.

Daniel Minahan- Deadwood: The Movie
After those top four, things get a bit harder to predict (not exceptionally so though, as I expect all the directing categories to go to, at least, seven nominees). Outside of 2017, this category has always had, at least, one TV movie here. Of the TV Movie contenders, it, essentially, comes down to Minahan and David Slade of Black Mirror, with my gut leaning with the former. Minahan's an Emmy winner, with dozens of series credits to his name, and Deadwood looks to be the favorite for the movie prize. While Bandersnatch has so much going on, and possibly the greater directorial feat, I'm still not sure that it can break through; if it couldn't make it in here for San Junipero and USS Callister, Emmy-winning "movies", the more coldly-received Bandersnatch might not have much of a shot (it doesn't help for the series' directors that creator Charlie Brooker gets the majority of the series' praise).

6.

Thomas Kail- Fosse/Verdon: "Who's Got the Pain?"
It's a toss-up for which Fosse/Verdon will make it in. Not a guarantee, of course, but I would be surprised to see such a big, Broadway-by-way-of-television production miss out here. Two episodes were submitted; Kail's "Who's Got the Pain?" and Jessica Yu's "Glory". Yu's has a musical ending, which should clinch it, but Kail directed the majority of the series, and his episode's got the title pair's first, electric meeting and a recreation of the episode title's musical number. I suspect that this race is too strong for both to make the cut, so I'm leaning with Kail (though either or both could, easily, make the cut).

7.

Stephen Frears- A Very English Scandal
Frears is an Oscar nominated filmmaker, who's been nominated here before, and who helmed the entire series; I'd have him higher if it wasn't such a tough field. While the series came out a long time ago, a fact that weighed mightily in my decision to leave it out of the limited series field, he's a respected name in field that gets a bit frenzied after the top four. Also, there's typically, at least, one British director in the mix, and he's the only major name contending for that spot (I know that's a flimsy argument, but I'm still going with it).

Other Possibilities

David Slade- Black Mirror: Bandersnatch

Jessica Yu- Fosse/Veron: "Glory"

"Nobody Is Ever Missing" is the only episode submitted by Succession's team, and that's a shrewd move; I'd argue the show could've got a few nominees here, but one submission says that they're gunning for the win. They might get it.

Emerald Fennell- Killing Eve: "Nice and Neat"
While it doesn't have the pull of the pilot episode, it's Eve's only submission, and this category looks a bit scattered after #1 and #2.

4.

Bruce Miller & Kira Snyder- The Handmaid's Tale: "Holly"
The writing category is, surprisingly, slim this year so, after the expected picks, expect to see some wild picks. The wildest I'm making this year is "Holly" from The Handmaid's Tale. As mentioned before, the series is ineligible to compete in series nominations, but, apparently, can for individual episodes that aired after the 2018 cutoff date ("Holly" premiered in July of last year). It's the series' only submission, and the episode is one of the show's best reviewed. While I could, certainly, see voter apathy hit the show this year ("If it isn't competing for the top prizes, why should I care?"), I think it'll be an intriguing enough prospect for voters to go for.

5.

Jed Mercurio- Bodyguard: "Episode 1"
With episode submission in a scattered category, this is one where Bodyguard could thrive. It certainly helps that "Episode 1" hooks you from moment one, masterfully ratcheting up tension like few shows can. There are a lot of ways that this category could go, but I'm, surprisingly, really feeling Mercurio's chances.

6.

Chris Mundy- Ozark: "The Gold Coast"
The last spot gets murky. I'd jump hard on Better Call Saul, but they submitted seven of their 10 episodes in a year with no real standout (they're all, really, exceptional); i.e. too much vote-splitting has me nervous. Pose is great, but it's not exactly a writer's series. Homecoming wisely submitted just one episode but, again, I'm expecting a cold shoulder outside of a few spots. If This Is Us couldn't crack this category for it's first two seasons, it'll be tough for them to score for a less enthusiastically received season (it doesn't help that the two episodes submitted don't really showcase the show's strengths). That, to me, narrows it down to The Good Fight and Ozark. I'm hesitant about Fight's chances overall, but this is a category that I could actually see it break in to, as it's parent series, The Good Wife, was able to score two nominations, including for the divisive series finale. Despite these strong factors, I'm going with Ozark; the, likely, series nomination, as well as a litany of acting and directing nominations, makes this a broad contender in many categories, and I think that overall appeal will help it in this down year. It's very close though.

Other Possibilities


7.

Robert King & Michelle King- The Good Fight: "The One About Recent Troubles"


8.

Peter Gould & Thomas Schnauz- Better Call Saul: "Winner"
I'd say, of the seven submitted, "Winner" probably has the strongest case. It's the season finale which, by virtue of being the most recent and discernible, is the freshest in viewers minds.

9.

Gordon Smith- Better Call Saul: "Something Beautiful"
Or it could be "Something Beautiful", as Gordon Smith is the only Saul writer to score any individual nominations. The writers' names aren't on the ballots though, so this one may be a bit of a longshot.

10.

Eli Horowitz & Micah Bloomberg- Homecoming: "Stop"

Best Writing for a Comedy Series

People who added this item 139 Average listal rating (95 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.2

1.

David Mandel- Veep: "Veep"
Veep, wisely, only submitted one episode for writing, and it was the series finale; easily the best of the season, and, arguably, one of the best of the series. Not a lock to win yet, but unquestionably the favorite.

2.

Alec Berg & Bill Hader- Barry: "ronny/lily"
It's Barry's only submission, and it's most distinct episode ever; it's in.

3.

Amy Sherman-Palladino- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: "Midnight at the Concord"
Sherman-Palladino won last year, and the only reason I don't have her higher is that Maisel submitted two episodes. Both are getting in, but her work is the more likely of the two.

4.

Daniel Palladino- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: "Vote for Kennedy, Vote for Kennedy"
Again, this is last year's winner submitting two episodes in a wide open field; it's in.

5.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge- Fleabag: "Episode 1"
The last couple of spots have about five episodes competing from three shows; Fleabag, The Good Place, and Russian Doll. With Waller-Bridge having written the series, she's got the upper hand with only one submission; the other two shows have a strong chance here, but the issue of vote splitting will hurt both (unless voter go for one show, twice, which could happen). It doesn't hurt that the show is a critical smash, and she scored a writing nomination for Killing Eve last year.

6.

Natasha Lyonne, Leslye Headland, & Amy Poehler- Russian Doll: "Nothing in This World is Easy"
While names aren't included on the ballots, I'm guessing that voters will look it up and see Lyonne and Poehler's names attached, and go with "Nothing in This World is Easy". That said, it's a tough one, with two Good Place episodes in waiting, and two other Russian Doll episodes that could, easily, take votes. I'm going with the creators though, and with the fact that pilots (of which this episode is) have been featured here, in some form, in 15 of the past 20 contests (including winning last year). It's a big guess though.

7.

Josh Siegal & Dylan Morgan- The Good Place: "Janet(s)"
Why not? So many of these categories go over the six-nominee standard, that I'm gonna go ahead and predict this one does to. The fact that it hasn't yet is, truly, stunning. If I'm going over, then it's gotta be for a critical hit, and The Good Place is, certainly, that. Of the two that were submitted, "Janet(s)" seems to be the most ready-made for a nod; it's a singular episode that encapsulates what makes the series great (it also helps that it features a pretty superb near-one woman show). It could be "Pandemonium", too; premieres and finales are the nomination standard. It could, also, be either of the other Russian Doll episodes submitted. My gut says that The Good Place will make it in, somehow, and "Janet(s) feels like the right one. Now, watch me be wrong.

Other Possibilities


8.

Natasha Lyonne- Russian Doll: "Ariadne"


9.

Megan Amram & Jen Statsky- The Good Place: "Pandemonium"


10.

Best Writing for a Limited Series or Movie

1.

David Milch- Deadwood: The Movie
He was only able to score one writing nomination for the series, and his words are as poetic as they are verbose once more; this would be a great place to recognize his achievements with this series.

2.

Charlie Brooker- Black Mirror: Bandersnatch
Brooker's won two straight, which should be enough shield him from the episode's criticisms, and to score him another nod.

3.

Craig Mazin- Chernobyl
Mazin's brilliant storytelling and attention to detail should score him a well earned writing nomination, and the momentum the show has should clinch it.

4.

Brett Johnson & Michael Tolkin- Escape at Dannemora: "Part 7"
Dannemora is likely going to be here, but the series' submitting two of the seven episodes for consideration makes it a bit difficult to predict which one. There's always the chance that both cancel each other out, and the result is a surprising snub, or, possibly, that both stun and get in. I see the more likely outcome being that "Part 7", the final episode, gets the tip in from being the most recent (finales and pilots are words to live by here). It helps that "Part 6" is a bit more divisive.

5.

Ava DuVernay & Michael Starrbury- When They See Us: "Part Four"
When They See Us popped at just the right time, and it, wisely, submitted just one of it's episodes. While these last couple of spots always throw a curve ball or two, I'd say the series' momentum and critical clout will carry it into the category.

6.

Russell T. Davies- A Very English Scandal
This last spot came down to Fosse/Verdon, Sharp Objects and A Very English Scandal. While the first two may have more heat overall, the last's, undoubtedly, success can be attributed to great writing. That doesn't always matter, but the writers usually have a good record of respecting more writerly works.
