Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Comedy Series

My predictions: 5/6, missing only “Atlanta”

The nominees: B.A.N. (Atlanta), Intellectual Property (Silicon Valley), Server Error (Silicon Valley), Blurb (Veep), Groundbreaking (Veep), Justice (Veep)

It’s not too hard to do well predicting this category when, for the second year in a row, two HBO shows have all their submitted episodes nominated. I’m a big fan of Silicon Valley, which is always recognized here but should be elsewhere as well, and I’m rooting for it. These episodes of Veep were pretty good too – I’ll provide more analysis in my winner predictions. I liked Atlanta, but I wasn’t too fond of this episode in particular and the format in which it was presented.

Who should win? Probably “Server Error”
Who will win? I’m guessing Veep for “Groundbreaking.”
