Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/6

The nominees: The Audition (Barry), ronny/lily (Barry), The Stockholm Syndrome (The Big Bang Theory), Episode 1 (Fleabag), All Alone (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), We’re Going to the Catskills! (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)

This is a decent list, and I think I’m happiest about the two episodes of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel making the cut. I like Barry too, though I’m not sure what people see in the “ronny/lily” episode. The series finale of The Big Bang Theory marks the show’s second consecutive nomination, and I look forward to watching it as I’m sure it’s fun. I really have to catch up on Fleabag, which did enormously well overall. I am surprised that “Veep” didn’t show up at all despite multiple previous nominations in this category each year.

What should win? Of the four I’ve seen, I’d choose either of the Maisel episodes.
What will win? I think All Alone might win.
