    So, last three years at least, Directing and Writing awards went to the same series with the same episodes.
    Does it mean The Dragon and the Wolf will win?

    True, but before that you have to go back to 1997-1998 to find a match, with NYPD Blue taking the two awards.

    There's a clear pattern in these victories: usually you have the more "action-packed showy" series winning directing (True Detective, Boardwalk Empire, ER, 24, Lost), while the more "wordy" series takes writing (Friday Night Lights, Mad Men, House, The West Wing). That doesn't mean the opposite does't happen, but it all points to a Thrones/Handmaid's split.

    The Americans is winning Writing, I couldn't be more sure about this. I was already really confident about this since it aired, but what finally sealed the deal for me is that guy from the writers' branch praising it at GoldDerby, how he never liked The Amercans writing submissions before, because he didn't watch the show, so he had no clue what's going on, but with the finale, for first the time ever, he thought that their episode was absolutely brilliant. And this is coming from a voter who didn't follow the show. That scene in parking lot will seal the deal even for voters who don't love the show.

    I'm predicting The Americans in Writing just like how FNL pulled an upset in 2011.

    The Americans can definitely pull this one off. Especially for such a dialogue-driven series finale.

    Yeah, I don't even care if the idiots of the TV Academy don't give The Americans Best Drama Series. That's too big an ask for a group of basics, anyway. But as long as they can get a Writing win, then at least Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields can finally get their Emmy that way instead.

    That parking lot scene is truly a stunner and better than everything else in the category combined.

    Emmy, Walk with Me

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