And now comedy! Probably my favourite genre!
But first, in case you missed it, go check out my first installment in this 70th Emmy Awards series! It’s Limited Series, Variety and Reality
Outstanding Writing For A Comedy Series
- Altanta “Alligator Man”, written by Donald Glover
- Atlanta “Barbershop”, written by Stefani Robinson
- Barry “Chapter One: Make Your Mark”, written by Alec Berg and Bill Hader
- Barry “Chapter Seven: Loud, Fast and Keep Going”, written by Liz Sarnoff
- Silicon Valley “Fifty-One Percent”, written by Alec Berg
- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel “Pilot”, written by Amy Sherman-Palladino
This is really hard. These shows are all amazing. “Barbershop” is so well-written and it holds the tention until the last seconds, both episodes of Barry are devastatingly scary and yet hilarous;
and Amy Sherman-Palladino! COME ON!
Alec Berg is nominated for two different shows! That definitely says something! I might have to go for Barry. It’s such a new and innovative show and it deserves recognition!

Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series
I can’t decide between Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph.
Wanda Sykes, Tiffany Haddish, Jane Lynch and Molly Shannon were great in their roles but they didn’t leave me with an Emmy worthy impression.
Tina was phenomenal as always but Maya’s role as the judge in “The Good Place” was unforgettable.
Sorry Tina, I love you. Like, a lot…
