Winter awards season offers a second chance for shows that didn’t get the opportunity to shine at the Emmys in September.

In a Variety Awards Circuit video presented by HBO, Variety senior editors Danielle Turchiano and Michael Schneider discussed how the year’s comedy series may stack up against each other at the Critics Choice Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Golden Globes, beginning with Peacock’s “Girls5Eva.”

“It was kind of snubbed during the Emmys,” Schneider pointed out.

“That’s exactly why I wanted to start with it. It did get a writing nomination, which was fantastic, but I felt like that wasn’t enough. Now there’s a real opportunity here to celebrate it in a bigger way. Especially with something like the SAG Award [for] ensemble. Busy Philipps, Sara Bareilles, Paula Pell, Renée Elise Goldsberry — how could you not look at these women and think, powerhouse comedy players!?”

“Hacks,” on the other hand, was celebrated in a big way at the Emmys, and could be again, especially at the SAG Awards.

“It really over-performed at the Emmys,” Turchiano said. “I don’t know that people were predicting 15 nominations. And we were predicting wins, but I don’t know that we were predicting both writing and directing. Hopefully [it] has the heat it needs in these races.”

However, since those shows debuted in the spring, those that launched in the fall likely stole voters attention.

“I do feel like ‘The Great’ is a show that people slowly caught onto,” Schneider said. “Maybe they hadn’t caught on by the end of Season 1, but it’s back, and there’s a little more heat surrounding it. Perhaps there’s gonna be a little more interest.”

Schneider also commented on how “Ted Lasso’s” comedy series win at the Emmys is likely to propel it to the top of winter awards conversations.

“Starting with Jason Sudeikis, of course, but a murderers’ row of talent there. Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Brett Goldstein, Nick Mohammed, Juno Temple, the list goes on and on. It is a fantastic group.”

“Only Murders in the Building” is another comedy series getting attention for its ensemble. 

“It’s a surprising cast for me. Obviously, Steve Martin and Martin Short, we know what they can do together because they’re of a generation of a certain kind of comedy. I didn’t know how Selena [Gomez] would fit into that, and it worked so much better than I was expecting,” Turchiano said.

“The Other Two” didn’t get much awards traction during its first season on Comedy Central, but since moving to HBO Max, it’s become a larger part of the conversation.

“It’s that power of streaming. The availability. People are stumbling across it when they’re scrolling through HBO Max. We’ve seen a number of shows that have suddenly become zeitgeisty because of their move to streaming. The king of that is ‘Cobra Kai,’” Schneider said, referring to the “Karate Kid” spinoff series that began on YouTube Red and later moved to Netflix for its third, fourth and fifth seasons.

“Another show that was a sleeper, that we weren’t necessarily thinking for awards play, but came on strong with an Emmy nomination, was ‘What We Do in the Shadows,’” Schneider said. “That’s a show that has such a rabid cult following, but they’ve managed to translate that into some real awards attention.”

“FX has another sleeper hit that we’re talking about and we like: ‘Reservation Dogs,’” he continued. “A quiet little show that critics really embraced. Talk about a fun, unknown, new face ensemble that really knocks it out of the park. How fun would it be to see that cast up on a stage anywhere, just celebrating? Making history as well, as a Native American troupe.”
