Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/7

The nominees: Witness (Better Call Saul), Hyde Park Corner (The Crown), Offred (The Handmaid’s Tale), The Bridge (The Handmaid’s Tale), America First (Homeland), Chapter One: The Vanishing of Will Byers (Stranger Things), The Bicameral Mind (Westworld)

This is a cool category, with four new shows represented, one that hasn’t been recognized here before, and another that really doesn’t need to be here since it’s well past its prime (Homeland). I’m thrilled to see the season finale of Westworld and not one but two episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale here. I still have to watch Stranger Things and The Crown. I’m shocked – and thrilled – to see Better Call Saul here for the first time, recognized for the second episode of the season, one of the most focused and intense hours.

Who should win? “Offred” or “The Bicameral Mind,” though I still have two episodes to watch
Who will win? I’ll say Westworld for now, but it could be any of them
