    That Big Bang Theory nod is fucking revolting.

    I think an Atlanta episode wins Directing and Maisel wins Writing?

    Alec Berg has been nominated for an Emmy 16 times without winning!

    He didn't even win the Razzie for The Cat in the Hat screenplay!

    Give the poor guy something, lol!
    THE VERDICT IS IN!

    Really rooting for Amy Sherman-Palladino to get a solo Emmy win. Either writing or directing, doesn't matter which. (Writing seems more likely though). Atlanta can win which ever one she loses.

    Emmy, Walk with Me

    For Your Consideration:
    OUTSTANDING LIMITED SERIES
    BEST ACTOR | BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS | BEST DIRECTOR

    Directing to Atlanta and Writing to Maisel seems like a smart split.

    If Maisel can snag both, then we'll know Series is in play.

    I want ASP to win either one! But she really could lose both with Atlanta taking both

    I don't hate the new rule of multicam in directing slot because in other tech categories, there's really a separate category because the craft and technical stuff are different from single cam work and it deserves to get recognized too and directing is the key master of all that. With that said, I wished One Day at a Time or Will & Grace got the slot instead although I don't hate the Big Bang Theory episode that got nominated.

    I actually predict the opposite split, Maisel winning Directing and Atlanta winning Writing. An Atlanta votesplit in Directing is much more likely, because Glover doesn't have the showier episode, but he will still get a lot of votes, so I would say that FUBU gets at least one third of the Atlanta votes, and at that point Maisel is close enough to win Directing. The Teddy Perkins episode might still win Directing, but it will be really close. In Writing almost all the Atlanta votes will go to Glover, because Barbershop isn't the hyped episode of the season at all, unlike Teddy Perkins in Directing.
