    I wonder how they'll even have an awards show this year? Maybe they'll tell the winners in advance as they used to do for the Oscars back in the day and they can have a video acceptance speech that could be aired?

    Does anyone have any favorites or predictions?

    I can't believe they nominated What We Do in the Shadows! I love that show!

    I know Succession is fantastic but I'd love for Better Call Saul to win for last season, it was extraordinary. I'm really sad to see that Odenkirk and especially Rhea Seehorn weren't nominated.

    I think Jeremy Strong will win for best actor, he should get that for his cringe worthy rap that Kendall's did.

    My husband and brother loved Watchmen as they were fans of the comic but it was so confusing to me. I loved the last episode and Regina King was fantastic in the whole series and Jean Smart too but I just found the whole thing bizarre and kind of boring.

    It's great to see Catherine O'Hara finally get nominated for Schitt's Creek, the show was nominated too for it's last season. The whole main cast was nominated. Hopefully Catherine will win at least.

    I was also disappointed that that Bob Odenkirk and Rhea Seehorn didn't get noms. Rhea really killed it last season!

    ^I want Eugene Levy to win too!

    As much as I love Schitts Creek, I think that last season was not nearly as good as the beginning seasons. I'm pulling for What we do in the Shadows. That is a funny, funny show.

    I hope Paul Mescal wins for Normal People.

    And for me, the new series of The Crown is so lame that I hope none of them win. It better not be Helena Bonham Carter at any rate as she is the worst nominee.
    I have some famous friends and I have mostly not famous friends.

    ^Agree about The Crown. I miss Claire Foy and Matt Smith. I only liked Anne in the last series.
    I only watched two episodes of Normal People so far and I'm liking it and him a lot.

    These nominations continue to show how different TV is now than it once was. Very few nods for anything on "free" tv -- the networks. It's really all for cable and streaming services.

    I'm really such a TV dud. I don't watch many of these.

    True. But I think it's because before there was no cable or very little, and it didn't make that many TV shows. And that started to change when HBO and others started developing shows like The Sopranos or Six Feet Under that really were miles above anything networks were producing, and since then the quality of network TV has consistently fallen and cable has become the home of all the shows associated with the so-called golden age of television.
    Some network shows do get nominated though (Black-ish, The Good Place, anything by Shonda Rhimes), and sometimes inexplicably - like The Big Bang Theory.

    And cable/streaming have less restrictions on them as far as what they can show. They can be more "real."

    I really watch too much mindless crap. There are so many excellent shows out there.

    I can't think of any network shows I watch anymore. I might catch some in syndication once they hit tvland. I watched This is Us but missed the entire last season.

    For me I think it’s just The Good Place but I watch it on Hulu or whatever streaming service it is that has it after it’s been on TV because I haven’t had a TV in years.

    The cast of What we do in the shadows got robbed, Nando did not get his semen nearly stolen by witches to suffer this injustice!
    Also Hunter Schafer was amazing in Euphoria (so was Zendaya of course) she should be on that list too ... plus it wouldn't hurt to have one trans actor, seriously.

    I watched a few of the shows and enjoyed them. I vote for Michael Douglas and Jennifer Aniston because they were excellent. Jen was terrific. Cate Blanchett and Tracy Ullman, fantastic acting. Not nominating Alan Arkin in Kominsky Method was just stupid.

    All it says is that's it's being televised on Sept 20th on ABC network.
