Emmy Podcast #24: The Comedy Series categories with guest Amanda Spears

In our first Emmy podcast of the 2018/2019 season, I am joined by Amanda Spears, who has been detailing her Emmy predictions here over the last few weeks.

In this episode we tackle the Comedy Series categories and the battle that seems to be between Veep‘s final season and the second season of the history-making winner from last year, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Will this focus on only these two shows (and their acting components like Julia Louis-Dreyfus vs Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein vs Anna Chlumsky) make room for a surprise third to come in and shock?

We look at the possible demise of the regular networks in the top category, with ABC’s black-ish barely hanging on and NBC’s The Good Place possibly coming in to take its place in the final lineup of seven shows.

Netflix has been enormously successful at the Emmys…with nominations. With so many comedies, new and previously established for it to push, how many can it realistically get in? 2? 3? 4?? And can it ever win?

I know I say at the beginning of the podcast that we’ll be doing both Comedy and Drama categories but I decided to split them up so Drama cats will be coming soon.

This podcast runs 1h 7m 45s with music.

Opening: “Change for the World” by Charles Bradley from HBO’s Barry

Closing: “New York City by Day” by Thomas Newman from the original motion picture soundtrack of Desperately Seeking Susan

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
