This week, the Water Cooler gang looks at the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Comedy races. Is this race Veep‘s to lose? Or are two sophomore season shows primed to steal the election?
We’re continuing our focus to the 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards this week. Last week, we took a look at the Limited Series races. Today, we’re looking at the Comedy races – a largely up in the air and unpredictable race. Once upon a time, this was Veep’s victory lap.
However, with a divisive final season and large drop in nominations, can Veep still take home the big trophy? Or will two critical smashes in their sophomore seasons – HBO’s Barry and Amazon Prime’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel – step in? Or is there a dark horse candidate ready and waiting? We give our mostly final predictions after some general discussion on each major race.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the media we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
