  1. Julia Garner should win for her roles in Ozark and Inventing Anna! Brilliant in both!!
    Love Succession but Ozark was the clear leader this year!!

  2. In the drama contenders I only watched Succession and Squid Game. Succession had a patchy season and Squid Game had the ludicrous American VIP episode, so neither deserve to win in my mind.

  3. The reason Rose Byrne wasn’t considered for Physical is because the show was released after the May 31st deadline. She will be eligible in next years Emmys.

  4. I agree with troy_story about Julia Roberts.I recently saw her performance as Martha Mitchell in Gaslit,and thought it was brilliant,one of the very best of her career.I’m surprised she didn’t get a nomination at the very least for this performance.

  5. Great to see Sarah Paulson nominated and i think she deserves the win for her incredible performance as Linda Tripp, kudos to her makeup artist too. Michael Keaton was great in Dopesick. Not sure about the rest, never enough time to watch all i would like to.

  6. Wow don’t the Emmy’s just love a show and stick to it. Succession is great of course, but that many acting nods? I see it as a full ensemble cast and they are all as good as each other. But I feel like it takes away from other worthy shows that should get a nod too.
    Overall the nominations are ok but of course it’s always more fun to whine about what’s missing.
    My musings:
    How are Invincible and Big Mouth missing from the animated category?
    Where is William Jackson Harper for Love Life S2?
    No Peacemaker love? Or indeed any Marvel/Superhero/Star Wars show… again!?
    No Sex Lives Of College Girls for best comedy?
    Euphoria’s second season was not as good as S1… and why is Zendaya nominated for the lead? That really is an ensemble show (though she is very good).
    Nothing for Dave or Shining Vale?
    Rose Byrne in Physical?
    Reese Witherspoon nominated for the Morning Show? Lol.
    Where is …And Just Like That?
    Where is Reacher, Minx and Upload?
    No Julia Roberts love for…

    1. def agree with Rose Byrne in Physical, but what’s wrong with Reese? The problem is there is just so much really good content now days, we seem to be going thru a sort of television renaissance in the last decade. So there are only so many nominations they can fit it. The quality of TV is just so good now i rarely even bother with movies, some of them are a joke in terms of quality in comparison.

    2. “No Peacemaker love? Or indeed any Marvel/Superhero/Star Wars show… again!?”

      Yep unfortunately and then there are likely the ones to over the top for Emmy consideration like The Boys on Prime Video. For one Antony Starr as Homelander is one of the best performances of a deranged character in a long time, he sells that character so well and you buy in to it so much, that you feel a sense of fear of what he’s capable of. Sure Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur/Joker won an Oscar, however that character had some feeling of sympathy in there, so could be played to that for emotion. Homelander has no redeeming character qualities what-so-ever and playing that as Antony Starr does is something to behold.

      As I say though an unsympathetic character like that is not going to get a nod, at least for Joaquin Phoenix it played into a narrative of if only the Health and Mental System was better, so was an easier one to get nomination for (not taking anything away either it was a great performance)
