Emmy Nominees: Best Writing for a Comedy Series

My predictions: 5/8

The nominees: Pilot (Abbott Elementary), 710N (Barry), starting over (Barry), The One, The Only (Hacks), True Crime (Only Murders in the Building), No Weddings and a Funeral (Ted Lasso), The Casino (What We Do in the Shadows), The Wellness Center (What We Do in the Shadows)

I’m not sure how we got an extra episode on this list, but that’s fine. We have two pilots - Abbott Elementary and Only Murders in the Building - and just one of two submitted episodes of Ted Lasso. Defending champion Hacks wisely only put one up for consideration, and Barry managed to get two of its three submissions cited, and they’re honestly two of the best half-hours of television I saw this past season. After the shock of three What We Do in the Shadows episodes being included last time the show was eligible, I’m fine with two episodes being included, especially since I enjoyed them.

What should win? “Barry” or “Only Murders in the Building”
What will win? I think this goes to Only Murders in the Building.
