Emmy Nominees: Best Comedy Series

My predictions: 4/7, missing “Fleabag,” “Russian Doll,” and “Schitt’s Creek”

Well, here are a few surprises. Possibly the biggest snub of the day is “The Kominsky Method,” which was expected completely here, and there’s also no repeat nomination for “GLOW,” no farewell bid for “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and the ousting of “Black-ish” from the lineup. Instead, we get the truly shocking inclusion of Schitt’s Creek, here for the first time for its fifth season. I’ve never seen it and will have to check it out. I stopped after episode one of Russian Doll, which did extremely well, so I’ll have to go back and keep watching. I’ve also been meaning to watch season two of Fleabag, a show I loved in season one that really win voters over this year. I’m absolutely thrilled that The Good Place finally made the cut, joining two great shows from last year, Barry and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, both of which upped their totals this year. And lastly, we have Veep, which didn’t dominate the categories the way it has its past two seasons, but it’s evidently still popular enough to merit a place here.

Who should win? I have to watch three of these, but I’m all for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” with “The Good Place” and “Barry” as good choices too.
Who will win? I think that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel repeats, but who knows?
