Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/7

The nominees: The Iron Throne (Game of Thrones), The Last of the Starks (Game of Thrones), The Long Night (Game of Thrones), Holly (The Handmaid’s Tale), Desperate Times (Killing Eve), Reparations (Ozark), Celebration (Succession)

As expected, Game of Thrones bests its three-year streak of two nominations each time with three for its final season. Even though it wasn’t eligible in the major categories because it didn’t technically air this season, The Handmaid’s Tale earned a bid here, and a double nominee last year, Ozark is back for its season premiere, which I have to watch. I’m not sure what was so special about the second episode of Killing Eve, and I also wasn’t too fond of the pilot of Succession, which I’ll now have to dive deep into considering it earned a Best Drama Series nomination.

What should win? From what I’ve seen, I’d probably give it to “The Long Night.”
What will win? It’s hard to imagine something other than The Long Night winning.
