    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.
