The Leftovers was robbed. I don't get how it has been so overlooked.
Yay for Big Little Lies/TheNight Of/ Drag Race.

Rooting for The Night Of, Big Little Lies, This Is Us, Atlanta and The Americans.  Even though I didnt understand much of Westworld but there was good acting there.

So Game of Thrones was not snubbed then, they were just not eligible.

I also didn't understand a lot of Westworld but it was entertaining so I was happy enough with it. I felt the same with the new Twin Peaks BUT that changed in the episode where the doppelganger vomied everywhere.

I didn't mind the vomy so much as the fact that I was just starting to understand what was going on the week before and then they went off on that tangent. It put me off completely.

I'm also rooting for The Night Of, Big Little Lies - and Better Call Saul. Would love it to win Best Drama.

I'm enjoying Twin Peaks if you can call it that . It is High Art. episode 8 was sort of a secret origins of the Twin Peaks universe - very cosmic . Of course not everyone's cup of tea but am glad there's tv like this out there.

Absolutely - it's so important to have shows that are unique and different from anything else.

I've been thinking about Game of Thrones... feeling suspicious because of how convenient the situation is for everyone else. I thought it was bizarre that they're suddenly out of synch with the entry dates when they've never been before but I've investigated and found this article that says it's happened because the show's filming schedule was pushed later to capture colder weather while filming.
