Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Drama Series

My predictions: 5/7

The nominees: A Hard Way to Go (Ozark), The We We Are (Severance), Red Light, Green Light (Squid Game), All the Bells Say (Succession), The Disruption (Succession), Too Much Birthday (Succession), Pilot (Yellowjackets)

I did better than I had expected here. I guessed two out of three correct Succession episodes, and predicted the finale of Severance and the pilot of Squid Game, but not the pilot of Yellowjackets. And I thought that both Jason Bateman and Laura Linney would be nominated for directing episodes of Ozark, but it turned out just to be Bateman for the series finale. It’s a good list!

What should win? The finale of “Severance”
What will win? It’s so competitive, but I’ll go with Ben Stiller for Severance.
