    No Twin Peaks is just ....i cannot understand. I know it's not for everybody, and it was mainly critics that showed up and poured out their love for it. But if episode 8 was their submission it can't not speak to people. It's a goddamn humanist work of art. 

    It's also weird as fuck....SCREW ALL YOU SQUARES!!!!!    Have to remind myself that The Wire and the Leftovers never won either.

  • The fact that Jodie Comer didn't get a nom for Killing Eve is bonkers to me. Also, I'm pretty surprised Zahn McClarnon didn't get a guest actor nomination considering how many other nominations Westworld got overall.

    Bill Hader please. just for his acceptance speech.

    edit: Donald Glover will just do something super talented and prob win a Golden Globe for his acceptance speech. it's not fair.

    Good to see Twin Peaks Returns did get some love even though Kyle MacLachlan got robbed.  

    Lynch for Directing.  Lynch & Frost for writing. Also cinematography, sound-mixing and more for a total of 9 nominations.

    Westworld folks may have the best social media hit. Woodward and Katja were giving some early views of the event.

    Matthew Rhys best actor!! And the Americans won for writing. Good to see it get some recognition for it's (great) final season.

    But how did Game of Throne's mediocre 7th season beat it for best drama??

  • The Americans should have won best drama...was kind of put off that Atlanta got no love for an outstanding series.

    Atlanta was robbed. Marvelous Ms. Maizel was good but Atlanta was a million times better!

  • I would have had it between Barry and Atlanta.

  • Game of Thrones winning Best Drame is fucking ridiculous. Westworld had a rough season but I'd still say it was better than season 7 GOT. But that's besides the point cause of what I've seen The Handmaids Tale, Stranger Things and The Crown were all much better (shit I'd take Barry in the drama category over most of them).

    No way Keri Russell shouldn't be up there too. Especially when Claire Foy won for the HIGHLY OVERRATED The Crown. 

    But I always thought The Americans flew just a little bit under the radar. 

    Matthew Rhys deserved three Emmys just for that last garage scene with Stan.

    Oh for sure Keri should've won too, she did a lot of amazing work this season.

    While I'm happy to see Game of Thrones pull in some more Emmys I don't think GOT deserved best drama.  It was a mediocre season at best.  I've never seen The Crown nor will I ever so I have no say with those wins.  I never jumped on board The Americans when it first came out so I regret to say I haven't seen any of it but will be watching the entire series sometime very soon. 

    I was extremely happy for Thandie Newton winning and also Peter Dinklage.  He's been my favorite character since season 1 so I always love seeing him get the win but I feel like he wasn't really utilized that much this past season.  I'll be doing a rewatch over the winter months so that thought might change after seeing it again but I feel like he didn't have that much to do other than try and get Danny and Jon Snow to work together.

    I don't watch any of the shows in the comedy categories so those I'm obviously neutral about but I was happy to see Henry Winkler win an Emmy.

    Agreed but I want to clarify that I think that's coming from the writing room and not from his personal performance.  I feel like he's always given it 110 percent.  Personally I think Nikolaj Coster Waldau should have won this past season because I felt his scenes had more emotion and just more.  His scene when Lady Olena told him it was her that killed Joffrey and when he confronted Cersei and his conversation with Tyrion in the crypt.  I felt like he had much more screen time and more meaningful screen time.
  • Also was happy to see that Merritt Wever won for supporting role in Godless, she was great in it!

    WHOA WHOA WHOA  :)   Hang on a sec.  Overrated?  Please tell me what's overrated - the stellar acting?  The star power cast?  The scripts which are *all* so superbly written?  The costuming, set design, or cinematography - all which are exceptional?   In all seriousness though, to each their own, but I think that 'overrated' is something that The Crown definitely is *not*.   Just my opinion.

    The Handmaid's Tale should have won.  Yes it's bleak, yes it's depressing and very sad, but WOW what a show.  It's honestly one of the best series I've seen in terms of writing, set design, costuming, camera work - the whole package is very, very well done.
  • This might be a little nitpicky of me, but does anyone else feel that a show should only have one episode nominated per category?  Like, a certain show shouldn't have two or three episodes in the same category, leaving only two other slots open for other nominees.  It's not really fair to other shows that are definitely deserving of a nomination.  I'm looking at you Atlanta, Barry, and Game of Thrones.

    That’s how it usually works unless it’s for the individual awards. Then everyone submits multiple episodes (including your favorites) based on the person being submitted for. So if they are submitting for two actors there could be two episodes, but it also may be just one depending on what they feel is “the best”. 

    Not sure how it’s unfair, unless there is only one episode of said show in which case it would go into a movie/miniseries. If anything that would be unfair to the actors since performances are often spread out over a season.

    I had a feeling you would reply. :D I think you’re the only one on this board who loves the show more than I do. I’m glad our girl Claire Foy took home the hardware.
