Emmy Winner Predictions: Best Directing for a Comedy Series

Nominees are listed in alphabetical order by show. Beware of minor spoilers for listed episodes.

Donald Glover, Atlanta (FUBU)
Hiro Murai, Atlanta (Teddy Perkins)
Bill Hader, Barry (Chapter One: Make Your Mark)
Mark Cendrowski, The Big Bang Theory (The Bow Tie Asymmetry)
Jesse Peretz, GLOW (Pilot)
Amy Sherman-Palladino, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Pilot)
Mike Judge, Silicon Valley (Initial Coin Offering)

Glover won this award last year, and he also contends for writing and starring in his show this year. This is the fifth consecutive nomination for Judge. Hader also contends for writing and starring in his show this year, and Sherman-Palladino is also up for writing her episode. This is the first-ever nomination for “The Big Bang Theory,” which is in his eleventh season. The pilot installments of “Barry” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” are also nominated for writing.

What should win:Barry,” “The Big Bang Theory,” or “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
What will win: Honestly, any of them could win. My bet is The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, but it could be either episode of “Atlanta” or “The Big Bang Theory” too.
