    The Good Place getting its first ever Golden Globe and WGA nominations in its third year of eligibility is kind of incredible, and is low-key making me optimistic that maybe it has a chance at a Comedy Series nomination next year at the Emmys?

    Is Escape at Dannemora snubbed or ineligible?

    Nice get for Maniac. Still odd that Globes didn't bite at all but as long as it does well in guilds.... I suspect Stone will show up in SAG at the very least.

    Parks and Recreation managed to get a series Emmy nomination on its 3rd year, on its second year Amy Poehler made it just like Ted Danson did for TGP Season 2. Hopefully it can crack SAG, PGA, DGA, just any of the three so i would be more confident with its chances. Black-ish is fading so The Good Place so might be Broadcast TV's best shot for a series nod

    Yeah I think it can and will do a better haul. At least Kristen Bell isn't an Emmy Rossum and has finally received an individual mention for herself!
