Emmy Nominees: Best Writing for a Drama Series

My predictions: 5/6, picking “Westworld” over “Killing Eve”

The nominees: Start (The Americans), Mystery Man (The Crown), The Dragon and the Wolf (Game of Thrones), June (The Handmaid’s Tale), Nice Face (Killing Eve), Chapter Nine: The Gate (Stranger Things)

For some reason, “Westworld” got booted from this category, with five of the nominees perfectly expected. Killing Eve is the one that scored the surprise bid (also the only one here not nominated for Best Drama Series), and while I did like the show in the end, the pilot was far from the best episode of the season. This is a decent list otherwise with some good writing, and all I have to watch is the series finale of The Americans.

Who should win? I still have to watch the “The Americans” episode, but for now I’ll choose “Game of Thrones” or “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
Who will win? I think that The Americans finally wins.
