Though we won’t know if there’s going to be an Emmy award show due to the precariousness of the potential SAG-AFTRA and ongoing WGA strikes, the Television Academy is pushing forward with its annual celebration of all things HBO. Though all of the nominees are deserving, this will be the Academy’s last chance to throw some gold toward Bob Odenkirk, Bill Hader, and Brian Cox. Will they take this opportunity to honor Sarah Snook? Will they say “yes, chef” to The Bear? Is it finally time for the Emmys to recognize that I Think You Should Leave is the best damn sketch comedy show on television, even though it’s technically not eligible this year? Find out on September 18 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
