    Thanks for this, Adam. Very well done. I greatly appreciate your hard work.

    Without hyperbole, this may be the most embarrassingly bad list of nominees I have ever seen. Snubs everywhere. The list is almost filled with undeserving nominees. Maniac? Homecoming? Glow? Stephen Dorff? About the only positive thing I can say is I'm glad to see Barry well-represented.

    I'll have more thoughts later.

    HBO narrowly took back the crown with 137 nominations to Netflix's 117 nominations, primarily due to the record-breaking 32 nominations for "Game of Thrones".

    I'm thrilled about:

    • "The Good Place" receiving five nomination, including Comedy Series and Lead Actor Comedy for Ted Danson.
    • All the love for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", second only to "Game of Thrones" with 20 nominations. All four leads got nominated, and all four leads deserved to.
    • That the television academy didn't ignore a quirky little sci-fi show like "Russian Doll".
    • The eight nominations for the "Deadwood" movie.
    • The eight nominations for "Sharp Objects", which is second only to the "Twin Peaks" revival for me when it comes to the most engrossing miniseries in recent years.
    • Jodie Comer's Lead Actress nomination for "Killing Eve". For my money, the best female performance on television during the eligible period.
    • Julia Louis-Dreyfus's swan song nomination. Yes, it's boring that she gets nominated like clockwork. But she deserves it.
      Catherine O'Hara's nomination for "Schitt's Creek". One of the most criminally underappreciated comedic actresses of her generation.
    • Julia Garner's supporting actress nomination for "Ozark". An incredible performance of an ever-fascinating character.
    • Fiona Shaw's supporting actress nomination for "Killing Eve". A stellar match of great writing and great acting.
    • The supporting actress nominations for Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. The final season of "Game of Thrones" may have underwhelmed at times, but both Stark sisters were excellent.
    • Margaret Qualley's supporting nomination for "Fosse/Verdon". It was criminal that she never got nominated for "The Leftovers", so I'm glad to see her get nominated here.
    • Carice van Houten's guest actress nomination for "Game Of Thrones". One of the most intriguing turns of the final season.
      • Phylicia Rashad's guest actress nomination for "This Is Us". Probably the best performance of the season, even though she was only basically in one episode.
      • Michael Angarano's guest actor nomination for "This Is Us". The season wasn't nearly as strong as the first two, but he did a great job with an unlikable and often impenetrable character.
    • Rufus Sewell's guest actor nomination for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". I point this one out separately from the bullet above because it was such a relevatory performance.
    I'm pissed about (probably more to come, when I think about it some more):
    • "Game of Thrones" deserves the technical nominations and some of the acting nominations. The rest, this year? Not so much.
    • Kristen Bell getting snubbed yet again for "The Good Place".
    • The lack of love for "The Good Fight".

    Especially delighted with the recognition finally coming to Schitt's Creek. Especially disgusted by the continual omission of The Good Fight in the major categories.

    I'm very happy to see all of the nominations for Better Call Saul but it's a crime that Rhea Seehorn didn't get one too.

    Great to see Barry (which is just amazing) get more nominations this year.

    The final episode fans most like to hate on Game of Thrones - "The Iron Throne" - gets nominated for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series? Talk about rubbing salt in a wound.

    This year's show was kind of a mess. It seemed like there was a problem with the teleprompter, because a lot of the presenters were struggling with their scripted banter. The audio seemed to have problems as well, like they were using stage mics instead of mics on the person.

    The slate of nominees for Best Comedy Series was arguably the greatest in Emmy history. You could make a justifiable argument for every single one of the nominees. I was a little surprised that "Veep" didn't get a lifetime achievement win like "Game of Thrones" did, but I didn't mind it either. I loved the final season, but that show's had enough love over the years.

    Three wins I'm happiest about: Julia Garner for "Ozark", Jodie Comer for "Killing Eve", and Tony Shalhoub for "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel". Among my favorite performances of the qualifying year.

    I've never seen "Pose", but Billy Porter's victory speech made me happy for his win. God, what a joyous human being.

    Joey King was snubbed for that Act series of hers, in favor of Michelle Williams for Fosse/Verdon. What is it about the Emmy voters this year that they deem a 20-year-old remarkable young woman, who puts in the hard work, and has the morals and ethics to go with it, unworthy of the pantheon of the greats (Burr, Van Dyke, MTM, Lucille Ball, Robert Young, et al.), in favor of some joker whose Fosse/Verdon show I probably wouldn't have even cared for?!

    I didn't see The Act, so I can't comment on whether anyone connected with it deserved to win (which Patricia Arquette did in the supporting category). But I can tell you Michelle Williams brought the amazing Gwen Verdon back to flesh and blood existence. I saw Verdon twice on stage in two of her greatest performances (Charity and Roxie), and there were quite a few times during Fosse/Verdon that I could have sworn Verdon had been resurrected to perform the story of her own life. But Williams' performance wasn't just a canny impression. She not only sang and danced but explored the depths of a performer who sees her time in the spotlight come and go and must adjust to an ever-changing public all the while watching someone she had at one time easily bested in fame overtake and eclipse her completely.

    Who was the idiot who jibber jabbered every time some one got up to accept an award? Did they accidentally broadcast the conversation of two “stoners” watching from their parents basement? How painfully and embarrassingly unfunny!

    Here's something that I think should be done for the 2020 Emmys and Oscars (and beyond that): have the future combined category of Best Lead and Supporter together (BL&S Comedy, BL&S Drama, BL&S Limited, all by series; or for films, Comedy, Drama, and all other kinds of films); no more of this lead winning and supporter not, or supporter winning and lead not.

    I mean, let's face it, Patricia Arquette on The Act did not under any circumstances support Michelle Williams on Fosse/Verdon; she supported Joey King on The Act.

    In essence, whether it's a male lead/supporter, female lead/supporter, male lead/female supporter, or female lead/male supporter, the lead and supporter on any series/film in the future ought to be considered together in the voting; like I said, no more of this nonsense where a lead wins and a supporter is snubbed, or a supporter wins and a lead is snubbed!

    Do you think that would be fairer?

    No. These awards are about individual achievement. When they say "supporting" they just mean not a lead role. If the supporting performer is top-notch, his or her award chances shouldn't be limited just because the lead performer wasn't as top-notch.

    Never considered it that way-- great point! I thought that the "supporting" actor/actress was there to build up or play off the lead; I didn't realize the award people meant it differently.

    I was disappointed the cast of “The Big Bang Theory” were not there to take a bow. I assume they were asked. Perhaps because they were not nominated for any major awards they chose not to come. The awards seemed to done on the cheap with no live orchestra and no host. No great entertainment segments. Best was probably the Bob Newhart skit.

    Network TV really is dead. Barely any shows from the Big Three took home anything at all, even minor technical awards.

    Seeing them honor Bob Newhart as he becomes the newest member of the Hollywood Nonagenarian Club just calls to mind the fact that they snubbed both his classic sitcoms when they were on the air.
