A Clean Slate: New Shows Have A Good Chance Of Emmy Awards | Television
“The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” – While this is an action series, there is enough of it here to earn a spot on the list. The problem? Is it a limited series or a real drama series? Marvel says more could come. But there is also “WandaVision”. It’s in the limited series category.
“Bridgerton” – The bodice-ripping drama has broken down a lot of barriers, but it’s also a soap opera. He’s drawn attention to his stars but doesn’t seem to have the power to stick around for five or six seasons. Look for lower returns, mostly in the behind-the-scenes categories.
“Lovecraft Country” – A wild ride, this sci-fi horror series has succeeded where others have not. He started running, then searched for so many “American Horror Story” features to color his world.
“The Boys” – This deserves to be in one of the categories (comedy, maybe?)
“The Queen’s Gambit” and “Mare of Easttown” are going to be the gorillas in this haze. “WandaVision” has a good shot too, especially since Marvel is the new force in town.
“I May Destroy You” – Michaela Coel wrote, co-directed and produced this drama about a writer trying to get his life back after a sexual assault. A touching drama, it could make Coel a threat to Kate Winslet of “Mare” and Anya Taylor-Joy of “Queen’s Gambit”. It will bring in something if not the jackpot.
