count me as an"Ozark fan".Loved the opener. It was as catching as Wlater White in his trailer

I do like Ozark. There were a few competitors which gained my vote instead.

...apologies to Jason Bateman and others...

I haven't seen that many shows, so my opinion is weak for many of these shows.

But it is surprising that The Mandalorian (Sci-Fi western about a bounty hunter) is nominated alongside 1other serious dramas.

For Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series, 3 actors from Watchmen are nominated. Hard to pick which one did a better job, though I'm leaning towards Louis Gossett Jr as the older version of Will Reeves. (On a related note, that category has some MAJOR cast spoilers for Watchmen.)

@mark noble,
An Emmy is an "American award bestowed by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (ATAS) in recognition of excellence in American primetime television programming."

There are two ceremonies: the Daytime Emmys (honors shows that air between 2am and 6pm) and the Primetime Emmys

In the US, an Emmy is one of the 4 major entertainment awards, along with Grammys (music), Oscars (film) and Tony (theater).

@mark noble,
I'm fairness, some of the programs appear on the smaller screen. I view Netflix and Amazon Prime shows on computer, tablet or smartphone.

In fairness, I don't think someone who doesn't have an operable computer, who has not idea what quality shows Netflix, Hulu etc etc have to offer, and basically has a puritanical outlook on how the world should be run, has any say so in what people choose to do with their down time.

I mean really. We're talking about someone who doesn't understand that if he has someone on ignore, something is weird that they are responding to those people posts.

Yes, That's fair, Indeed.

Unto those who need to substantiate their 'minimal' inclination toward 'Rewarding' the 'programming' processes of those who conduct zombies unto acceptable levels of zombiehood.

I sat on my arse, glued to a box, getting fatter, less active and 'Zombie-ing out'
Before I came to this conclusion.

I believe it to be a vital part of the 'inclining' untoward-process.

Works for me - Excuse my opinion - If not your 'cup of tea'.
It 'Is What It Is'.

Have a Lovely Day
