Oh, I'm so glad you started a thread for the 2018 Emmys.  I think Earthnut would probaby agree me that The Handmaid's Tale is deserving in many of the categories!

Ann Dowd for supporting actress in drama-Handmaid's Tale definitely.

Silicon Valley=Best Comedy without question IMO.

Elisabeth Moss lead actress for sure.  So many nominations for that show!  Gotta say Black Mirror is deserving--interesting show!

Glad you agree.  Moss' acting this season is better than last, and I didn't think she could get any better.  My goodness, the birth scene, OMG.

Have never watched Black Mirror, what's it about?  Don't have time today to look it up.

Black Mirror is a different story each time, but each episode has a different take on the dystopic world espcecially as it is in the digital age.

Black Mirror sounds interesting.  Will have to check it out.

All the nominations T H T has is a very good indication of how good the show is.

Wish Man in the High Castle aired on a different channel.  It should also be nominated.
