Atlanta: "New Jazz" – Hiro Murai Barry: "710N" – Bill Hader Hacks: "There Will Be Blood" – Lucia Aniello The Ms. Pat Show: "Baby Daddy Groundhog Day" – Mary Lou Belli Only Murders in the Building: "The Boy from 6B" – Cherien Dabis Only Murders in the Building: "True Crime" – Jamie Babbit Ted Lasso: "No Weddings and a Funeral" – MJ Delaney
The double entry for Only Murders might be a handicap. In the last 22 years, only 5 television shows won best director in a comedy series with multiple entries. You had Malcolm in the Middle, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Glee and Modern Family twice.
I don't claim to know the workings of the Emmy voter brain here, but I'll acknowledge that Hader's work with that episode of Barry (the motorcycle chase if I recall) may be the impressive feat that pushes him over the edge.
