Emmy Predictions: Best Directing for a Comedy Series

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 13th. Chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Parents (Masters of None), Daily Active Users (Silicon Valley), Founder Friendly (Silicon Valley), Man on the Land (Transparent), Kissing Your Sister (Veep), Morning After (Veep), Mother (Veep)

The top contenders:
B.A.N. (Atlanta)
Streets on Lock (Atlanta)
Chapter 1 (Dear White People)
Weekend Plans (Divorce)
Episode 1 (Fleabag)
Goodbye Tour (Girls)
Latching (Girls)
Everything Is Fine (The Good Place)
Michael’s Gambit (The Good Place)
The Thief (Master of None)
New York, I Love You (Master of None)
Intellectual Property (Silicon Valley)
Server Error (Silicon Valley)
If I Were a Bell (Transparent)
Exciting and New (Transparent)
Blurb (Veep)
Groundbreaking (Veep)
Justice (Veep)

The roundup: Last year’s list had seven nominees, and there’s little to make me doubt that this year’s lineup will be exactly the same. Either episode of Master of None could make the cut, and there’s more than one Transparent installment that could earn a nomination as well. Both Silicon Valley possibilities seem likely, and all three Veep submissions could make the cut too. Some of the final season of Girls might be nominated, as could introductory episodes of Atlanta, but I think this category will stay mostly the same.

The predicted nominees: The Thief (Master of None), Intellectual Property (Silicon Valley), Server Error (Silicon Valley), Blurb (Veep), Groundbreaking (Veep), Justice (Veep)

The predicted winner: Groundbreaking (Veep)
