    The drama nominations are disappointing.  We somehow ended up with an entire category of fillers.  With The CrownGame of Thrones and Stranger Things ineligible and them never having nominated The Americans or This is Us before, it would have been really easy for them to make creative choices (Bodyguard, The Haunting of Hill House, HomecomingKilling Eve, PoseSuccession), but they avoided all of the new shows to make just about the laziest choices as possible.  This is the first time in eight years that they did not nominate a new drama.  The field ended up finally being weak enough for The Americans and This is Us to move up, along with Ozark, which was likely eighth in series at the Emmys anyway.  And after Better Call Saul was squeezed out last year due to heavy competition, it is back this year.  The only drama nominee that is nominated that the PGA has ever been passionate about is The Handmaid’s Tale, but that has really fallen off in awards recently, so this award could go any way.  The only interesting thing that happened was the Westworld snub.

    Good for GLOW hanging on.  The Good Place getting in is huge, as is Silicon Valley being snubbed.  Comedy actually is the opposite of the drama field.  They got rid of the deadweight (Silicon Valley) and did not bring back stuff that they had dropped previously (black-ish).  A new comedy has won the last four years, but The Kominsky Method will not continue that streak.

    Why did they split limited series and movies?  Does not seem like the Emmys are going to combine them again any time soon.  The big movie snub is The Tale; at least it just won the equivalent Satellite Award?  King Lear has been doing well.  I do not see how The Alienist and Genius were snubbed after their strong Emmy showings.  The snubs of Patrick Melrose and A Very English Scandal for Maniac and The Romanoffs are surprising.  Black Mirror won last year, but I believe that Netflix did not submit it this year.

    Bill Maher returning after being dropped is interesting.  Looks like the bloom is off the rose for Samantha Bee.  America’s Got Talent is now on track to bump either American Ninja Warrior or Project Runway at the Emmys.

    Is it possible that Drama just isn’t that up to snuff like comedy is this season? And Monday is the DGA announcement. Maybe TGP can set off a few more tremors then! 🙂

    This is the first year in five though that the category has not nominated a new comedy and The Kominsky Method seemed well on its way.

    Barry is nominated.

    Woah, woah, woah… I would call nominating The Americans and Better Call Saul the opposite of lazy. The others? Sure. But I’ll give them some credit for actually choosing two of the best programs of the year, despite also going with two (or three, depending on your mileage) of the worst.

    Now, if you are more referring to the awards race and how the PGAs relate to the Emmys, then fine – perhaps this was them falling in line. The quality is there, though!

The field ended up finally being weak enough for The Americans and This is Us to move up, along with Ozark, which was likely eighth in series at the Emmys anyway.

    Hey cmon. The Americans and Better Call Saul were two of the best tv shows of the years and most critics agree. I’ll take the Ozark and This is Us nominations if it means they reward two of the best shows on television that deserve it.

    Bob Odenkirk for the win!

    All that I am saying is that The Americans and Better Call Saul got in not because the PGA voted differently this year, but just because competition was lighter.  I wonder if The Americans can win just because it has passion behind it.  Consensus shows like Game of Thrones and Veep have done poorly at PGA in recent years opposite new shows that might not have been seen by everyone, but had some people buzzing.  What the hell wins the movie category?

    I agree with the rest, the drama category is excellent, Better Call Saul, The Americans and The Handmaid’s Tale are the best three dramas of the past year. And they very often nominate shows for the first time for their second seasons, so Ozark and This is us are not that surprising (as a regular watcher, I know that This is us aired the first half of his third season, but here it is nominated also for the second part of the second season). GLOW and The Good Place also received their first nomination for their second seasons (TGP has the same situation as This is us). And it is obvious that many people caught up with The Americans during the last season.

    My predictions score rides on my upset prediction of Sense8 in TV movie.  I do not agree with the PGA’s decision to split off limited series and movies into separate categories this year, especially this year.  To recap, the other nominees are:

    – Paterno, which could not even get Al freaking Pacino nominated for anything
    – Fahrenheit 451, HBO’s worst-reviewed film in decades
    – My Dinner with Hervé, which HBO held to burn off in the fall
    – King Lear, possibly a decent movie and it seems like Amazon has put up a campaign, but nobody has ever talked about it and the 6.1 rating on IMDb from 1500 ratings does not inspire much confidence

    PGA awarded The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Atlanta when they had just come out and few had seen or heard of them, which makes me think that passion is key at PGA.  The hard part is getting the nomination because consensus does not necessarily win out in the end.

    Sense8 has of course been cancelled and shuffled off to the movie category, but its minority of fans was so vocal that Netflix felt bad and gave it a wrap-up movie.  That alone demonstrates that some people somewhere are passionate about this show.  HBO got its nominations because the PGA had to nominate something and HBO still makes half-decent TV movies, but nobody has an emotional attachment to these three, so they could split the vote.  Also, Sense8 has been on Netflix for years, so it might even win on visibility, one of the advantages that long-running series like Black Mirror and Sherlock have over whatever the new HBO movie is, which voters either saw in the last year or they did not see at all.  Maybe some voters did not watch a single TV movie this year, but they watched an episode of Sense8 a couple of years ago. The Sense8 series has more than ten times the number of IMDb ratings than any of the other nominees.

    This is so true!
