Emmys: ‘The Bear’ Stuns With Writing Submission; ‘Abbott Elementary’ Eyeing Director Nod; ‘Baby Reindeer’ Leads the Race

Variety’s Awards Circuit section provides the latest updates on awards news and content, including predictions for major ceremonies like the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and Tony Awards. The predictions are based on current standings in the race and are updated every Thursday.

In a surprising turn of events, the comedy series “The Bear” has submitted the episode “Fishes” for outstanding writing, written by Christopher Storer and Joanna Calo. However, the equally impressive episode “Forks” will not be in the running. On the other hand, “Abbott Elementary” is vying for recognition with its season premiere episode “Career Day,” directed by Randall Einhorn.

Newcomer series like Paramount’s “Colin From Accounts” and the final season of “Reservation Dogs” are also expected to make waves in the Emmy race. In the drama category, “Shogun” is anticipated to have a significant impact, while the limited series category is shaping up to be a tight competition between “True Detective” and Netflix’s “Baby Reindeer” and “Ripley.”
