Why Netflix Dramas Sag Midseason — and How They’re Fixing It

You probably know this feeling: You’re bingeing a season of a new drama. You like the characters and the atmosphere, and you’re curious about where the story goes, but at a certain point (usually somewhere between halfway and two-thirds of the way through the season), you start to grow impatient waiting for the show to just Get. To. The point already!

If you’ve felt this way, particularly when watching a new drama on Netflix — which is both the most influential player in the business right now and

Top 5 reasons why I just switched to Claire Foy (‘The Crown’) to win the Emmy as Best Drama Actress

Top 5 reasons why I just switched to Claire Foy (‘The Crown’) to win the Emmy as Best Drama Actress
Watch out Elisabeth Moss, as Claire Foy is a real threat to take away your Emmy crown. I just switched to Foy in my predictions and think she will win her first Emmy this year for playing Queen Elizabeth II in Netflix’s “The Crown.”

Foy sits in second place with 7/1 odds behind Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) at 8/15 and just ahead of Sandra Oh (“Killing Eve”) at 15/2 according to our combined odds. And although none of our sage Emmy Experts have Foy in first place in their predictions, three of our Editors have cottoned on to Foy being a more serious threat to dethrone Moss at next month’s Emmys.

Here’s five reasons why I think Foy might reign supreme on Emmy night:

1. Foy has won the last two SAG Awards in this category

On My Screen: ‘The Sinner’s Jessica Biel Discusses Her Film & TV Favorites

On My Screen: ‘The Sinner’s Jessica Biel Discusses Her Film & TV Favorites
As Cora Tannetti in USA’s The Sinner, Jessica Biel brutally stabs a young man to death in front of dozens of people on a beach. Why would she do that? Cora doesn’t know exactly, but what ensues is a twisting ride on the coattails of a fantastically unreliable protagonist. As each thread of the mystery is pulled, Biel is believable, vulnerable, and deliberately unreadable all at once. As she says, “There’s almost like a multiple personality in one person. I do feel that it’s as if a small village of people live inside her mind.” And she plays them all seamlessly—a task that was, she says, “a real, real challenging thing, but so cathartic.”

Her Emmy nomination for the role is the feather in the cap of a distinguished career. Celebrating from Sweden, where she’s on tour with husband Justin Timberlake, Biel gives us

What has Kiernan Shipka Been Up to Since “Mad Men?”

It’s not every kid whose parents will up and move to La to support their acting career, but that’s what Kiernan Shipka’s folks did when she started on that path to stardom. Those that managed to follow and watch every episode of Mad Men will n doubt recognize little Sally Draper since she’s grown up and has moved on to bigger and better things following the show. To say that she’s been busy would be kind of an understatement since she’s been on a roll landing parts in films and in TV shows even if some of them have been

She Is ‘Maisel’, Hear Her Roar: Amazon Series Creators & Stars On #MeToo Timing & Blazing A New Trail
Two-thirds of the way into the pilot of Amazon Studios’ The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, there’s a moment that underscores just how unflappable Rachel Brosnahan’s uptown Jewish housewife heroine, Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel, truly is.

Her business suit-wearing wannabe stand-up hack of a husband, Joel (Michael Zegen), drops the news on the eve of what will be a very busy Yom Kippur that he’s leaving Midge for his secretary Penny—and with his wife’s suitcase no less.

“You’re leaving me for a girl who can’t figure out how to sharpen pencils?” stings Midge.

“I need to start over,” Joel groans.

“With her? She wins?” Midge asks—without tears—before slamming Joel. “Can I just say you have the worst timing ever?”

Then comes her punchline: “Grab some pens on the way out, you’re going to need them.

Emmy Predictions: Elisabeth Moss Likely To Repeat As Drama Series Actress But Claire Foy And Keri Russell Circling For The Win

Emmy Predictions: Elisabeth Moss Likely To Repeat As Drama Series Actress But Claire Foy And Keri Russell Circling For The Win
Two past winners in the category, versus four past Emmy nominees trying to break into that exclusive club—including the first ever Asian contender here—make up the extremely competitive lineup for Drama Series Lead Actress this year. I could easily have seen slots go to Ozark’s Laura Linney or Maggie Gyllenhaal of The Deuce, or This Is Us star Mandy Moore after her exemplary season, but the field turned out to be simply too crowded. So can it be Keri Russell on her last season for The Americans, or Sandra Oh on her first for Killing Eve as upsets? Or will we crown Claire Foy’s exit as the Queen? Here’s the analysis…

Emmy Predictions: Will Sterling K. Brown Prevail Again Or Is Upset Looming In Drama Series Actor Race?

Emmy Predictions: Will Sterling K. Brown Prevail Again Or Is Upset Looming In Drama Series Actor Race?
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

It’s co-star versus co-star in the Lead Actor race this time around, as Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris battle for the gold, while This Is Us stars Sterling K. Brown and Milo Ventimiglia face off again for the second year running. Brown won that round in 2017—but will Ventimiglia prevail in the rematch? The category also sees the return of Matthew Rhys of The Americans, which is looking at its final chance for glory this year, and making his debut in the category is Jason Bateman, who also has a directing nomination for first year Netflix series Ozark.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (‘Killing Eve’) aiming to be sixth solo woman to win Best Drama Writing Emmy

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (‘Killing Eve’) aiming to be sixth solo woman to win Best Drama Writing Emmy
Phoebe Waller-Bridges (“Killing Eve”) is the only female nominee in the Best Drama Writing Emmy field of six. And “six” will also be associated with her should she win because only five other solo women have won the category before.

Since Best Drama Writing was added at the 7th Primetime Emmys in 1955, undergoing various name changes, the category has almost exclusively been a boys’ club. It took 19 years before Joanna Lee became the first individual woman to win, prevailing for “The Waltons.” In 1979, Michele Gallery (“Lou Grant”) joined her, followed by Patricia Green (“Cagney & Lacey”) and Ann Biderman (“NYPD Blue”) in 1994. Twenty long years later, Moira Walley-Beckett ended the drought with a statuette for penning “Ozymandias,” the best episode of “Breaking Bad.”

There were female winners in between Biderman’s and Walley-Beckett’s triumphs, but they all co-wrote their winning scripts with men. Robin Green (“The Sopranos”) shared her 2001 win with Mitchell Burgess,

‘Ozark’ Season 2 Review: Family Matters in the Netflix Drama’s Unrelenting New Season

Ever since The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad set the high bar for exciting new avenues of television storytelling, a bevy of TV shows about “bad men” have come our way. Some of these shows misunderstand what made these iconic series so compelling in the first place, while others use the creative freedom of the TV medium to use moral ambiguity as a jumping off point. The Netflix series Ozark falls into the latter category, and while the first season was a bit too stuck in Breaking Bad’s shadow to truly stand apart as its own towering achievement, …

Can Matthew Weiner turn The Romanoffs into a Mad Men-sized hit?

The showrunner’s costly follow-up boasts a sterling cast and a fascinating premise but carries considerable baggage

Here's Exactly When Shameless Season 9 Drops
The Emmy-nominated Showtime series Shameless has been renewed for a ninth season, and we now know exactly when to drop everything to catch the first episode. During the Television Critics Association Summer press tour, the cable network announced the premiere date: Sunday, Sept. 9. Even better? The new season is set to feature two extra episodes. That means we get to watch the perpetually down-on-their-luck but super-scrappy Gallaghers fall apart and come back together again for a total of 14 episodes. There is one catch though: the season is split into two sets of air dates. According to TV Line, seven episodes will air, followed by a short break, and then seven more episodes drop starting January 20, 2019.

Showtime released a trailer for the upcoming season that teases more desperate times ahead for the Gallaghers. But here's a fun tidbit: fiesty Fiona, played by Emmy Rossum, is still seeing Ford, a hot handyman who,
