Emmy Nominees: Best Writing for a Drama Series

My predictions: 4/6

The nominees: Winner (Better Call Saul), Episode 1 (Bodyguard), The Iron Throne (Game of Thrones), Holly (The Handmaid’s Tale), Nice and Neat (Killing Eve), Nobody Is Ever Missing (Succession)

Three of these episodes were also nominated for directing: the series finale of Game of Thrones, one of the “hanging episodes” leftover from season two of The Handmaid’s Tale, and the second episode of Killing Eve. It’s interesting that the pilot of Bodyguard got nominated here rather than for directing, but I’m all for it. I’m a fan of the season finale of Better Call Saul, while I’ll have to catch up and watch the season finale of Succession, which I didn’t watch past the pilot.

What should win? I’d probably be most excited about “Bodyguard,” but “Better Call Saul” or “The Handmaid’s Tale” would be great choices too.
What will win? I actually think Bodyguard might win, but I’m not sure.
