It's a crime that Andre Braugher will never win this category for B99.

 

There's still next year.

My impression is that Reggie is supposed to be some kind of genius, but I've never enjoyed him. OTOH, squeeing at the Survivor ad!

He was okay when Scott Aukerman was writing everything he said.

Ugh Cedric.  I've seen you be funny.  This is not it.

I hope it’s okay to go slightly off topic to say that if you have a target rewards account (free to sign up) they have a 4-month free Apple TV trial. Plenty of time to binge Ted Lasso. Look under something like “partner offers”.

Very happy for the Lasso winners so far.  And hell yeah, Roy Fucking Kent.  But I agree about Andre Braugher  he has been consistently overlooked at Emmy time in his career.

As I said on another board yesterday, I could recap tonight's show before it even aired - Ted Lasso is going to sweep the Comedy categories and The Crown is going to sweep in the Drama categories.

There you go, night complete. And these first two awards are not convincing me I was wrong. 

And Queen’s Gambit will sweep the Limited Series categories.  That’s what going to happen tonight.  It’s going to get boring fast.

 I am still puzzled over how the hell Hamilton was considered for both Emmy and Oscar consideration.  I thought they stopped letting them do that?

Hoping it would be Kathryn Hahn, but I heard great things about Julianne Nicholson in Mare of Easttown, so I'm not surprised.

As much as I loved getting to finally see Hamilton, it is weird seeing this being eligible for Emmys...

Pretty sure it wasn’t considered for Oscar consideration because it never got any kind of theatrical release and went to streaming instead which falls under TV.

I know their noms are ridiculous here, but damn if the little clips didn’t make me want to watch it again.

Yes they're playing her off.  Sorry, she was getting boring.  For once I agree with the playing off.

Not too sure about that though. I think the weird timing may end up hurting it. By that I mean Mare of Eastown, which came out a lot later and so is more recent in voters' mind, may end up stealing its thunder. 

Anya was amazing but she's now up against Queen Kate Winslet. So that may be a toughie. And it's kind of the same thing that happened to Normal People.

It had so much buzz and strength but by the time award season rolled around, The Queen's Gambit had stolen its thunder.

eta: And I see I'm right about Mare of Eastown stealing their thunder as they are now 2 for 2. Btw, I adore Evan Peters and have for years but I saw Mare of Eastown and I'm not sure I agree with that win.

You're right--I got confused with the Golden Globes, where it did get nominations.

Happy for Julianne Nicholson, but her acceptance speech had almost as many words as she's got freckles.

Yay Evan Peters!

Kathryn Hahn was robbed. I watched both Mare of Easttown and WandaVision and there is no doubt, to me, that the more nuanced and important performance was Agnes/Agatha. To be honest, I cannot even remember Julianne Nicholson's character's name. The character was kind of background until the final episodes.

Yeah for Evan Peters!!! So deserved - his performance was the heart of the show. It wasn't the same once his character's arc was done.

All five nominated performances are outstanding in that category.  Well deserved whichever woman wins 

Woohoo recast Pietro.  Was rooting for Evan!

Oh ok the DJ is going to do different voices every break a little advanced warning would have been nice.

They've already won a couple. Design and costuming, I think.

Evan Peters!! I've loved him S1 of American Horror Story. So happy.

I kept trying to remember where I'd heard of him before and finally caved to the Wikipedia gods.  I watched him on "Invasion" about 15 years ago, so yay!!

They won a few creative ones with the fantastic earworm Agatha All Along winning best song.  At this point, Elisabeth is the best bet and that category is TOUGH!

Same. I’m sure Mare of Easttown is deserving (I haven’t seen it) but I’m gonna be so pissed if WandaVision gets nothing tonight.

So, Rose McIver is no longer a zombie, but apparently dealing with ghosts now on her new CBS show.  I guess she'll tackle vampires next!

I liked the way Wilmer Valderrama turned to Vanessa Lachey when it was time to announce the winner and he asked her, "Together?" 
It felt like a post-Me-Too moment to me.

Figured The Crown was taking writing.  Was rooting for The Mandalorian just because no one in the room(s) would have known how to react to that.
