thecpt: I'm going to say it. The Walking Dead does not deserve an award whatsoever. Maybe best makeup for the walkers if that is a category. But thats it.


Or maybe in The Most Universally Loathed/Despised Characters in the History of Television, Ever category.

You know the Emmy's suck when they have an award for "best reality tv show."

Unreal.

When "keeping up the the kardishians" or "jersey shore" wins that award, that will be when I turn off the tv for good.

bobug: rocinante721: Serious Black: I can't say it's a snub for this year, but how the hell did Hugh Laurie never once win an Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama in the last eight years?

b/c show sucked with their Encyclopedia Brown-level of medical mysteries?

One day, one room (I think that was the title) was brilliantly acted. While some was overdone, Laurie did some good work on the show.


I thought he should have won it in the first season for "Three Stories", but no, they gave it to stupid James Spader...again. Good God does that Academy love David E. Kelley's speechifying. 35 acting awards in his career.

More importantly, how is Girls nominated for best comedy? Its not funny.

If Esposito doesn't win, he will kill your wife. He will kill your son. He will kill your infant daughter.

I know it's cool to hate reality tv now, but the Jeff Probst snub is very surprising. He's won the award each year it existed. Maybe this year Phil wins, but Probst is still the best.

Why? Steve Vai is a great guitarist...

DrZiffle: cirby: mase_face:
By the way..... is Justified any good? I love Timothy Olyphant, but I never heard of the show until now.

It's extremely good. Some of the best acting, humor, and drama on TV, rolled into one package.

Olyphant is great as the lead, and he's surrounded by some of the best supporting actors in the business.

Walt Goggins should have walked away with supporting actor nominations for each season so far.

The only guy who got a nomination from the show this year is playing one of the best idiot criminals in the history of TV, by the way. Hilariously dumb.

4NSpy: Community: snubbed in almost every category except for the one they were rightfully nominated for

Soooo, not snubbed then?


Ooohhh a writer got nominated. Community should sweep every comedy category.

Unreal..


It would be odd to have TV awards that don't recognize the majority of what is watched on television.

Dog Welder: MadMonk: Snapper Carr: MadMonk: Neal McDonough (Quarles) and Jere Burns (Duffy) were especially great,

Burns was solid as you'd expect a veteran character actor to be (he's been playing variations of Wynn Duffy his entire career).

I thought McDonough started out flat and really didn't come into his own until the last half of the season (and, yes, he was excellent in those last few episodes). Of course, that could just be audience (e.g. my) expectations. I think anyone they chose for the role was going to have a hard time considering he has to follow one of the finest performances in the history of television.

Completely agree, Mags was one of the best tv villains of all time in my book but I was just referring to this year. I think it's great that Quarles starts off a bit boring but becomes crazier and crazier and more desperate as the season continued. I also love the fact that Duffy was truly scared of him, where as in the past he was a fairly unshakable character, he's not even afraid of Raylan.

Well...until the season finale, that is. That was a great scene. Definitely hoping they can bring Duffy back for some more.

And if you haven't seen it, Jere Burns has been great on "Burn Notice" over that past couple of seasons.


I'm just here to say that snubbing of Walton Goggins and Neal McDonough this season were the worst snubs that could've happened.

They turned in some amazing work for Justified.

rocinante721: Also, I think they should have bumped up Peter Dinklage to BEST ACTOR category.


As was mentioned in a previous thread: the Emmy people don't decide these things, iirc. Dinklage (or the GoT producers) decided his chances were better in the supporting category. No sense in asking to get pwned by Cranston.


Psylent1: thecpt: I'm going to say it. The Walking Dead does not deserve an award whatsoever. Maybe best makeup for the walkers if that is a category. But thats it.

It would be funny if Carl won an Emmy;

"Is Carl Here? Where is Carl? Has anyone seen Carl? Is he in the house?"


"Carl could not be located. Accepting the award for Carl..."

bobug: One day, one room (I think that was the title) was brilliantly acted. While some was overdone, Laurie did some good work on the show.


Other than "House's Head" and "Wilson's Heart"(where Amber died), that was maybe the best episode in the show's history. Kathryn Winnick was brilliant as the patient.

He almost always deserves to be nominated.

Peter Dinklage and a bunch of other people who are taller .
 
2012-07-20 07:57:02 PM  
What about Michael Cudlitz and Regina King for SouthLAnd? Hell, what about SouthLAnd? It's the best damn cop drama on TV. How do they keep not getting love? Do these people not watch tv?
 
2012-07-20 08:00:21 PM  
Snubbed? That sounds like it could be kind of fun! Is it's origins German?

lalolalona: Snubbed even in the snubbed actors category...

[www.amctv.com image 590x375]

/ Hank should had got a nom.
// I swear, if Esposito doesn't get it, there will be blood.


Jonathan Banks (Mike) deserves a nod as well. I am right behind you with a second pitchfork if Giancarlo doesn't win.

Serious Black: I can't say it's a snub for this year, but how the hell did Hugh Laurie never once win an Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama in the last eight years?


Probably because the show wasn't really that good. Every episode was exactly the same:

1: Guy is sick.
2: They brainstorm 5 times, rattling off the same list of ailments as every episode before.
3: House decides on one and the treatment actually makes guys worse.
4: Throw in some fluff about someone's personal life problems.
5: In the last five minutes House gets that light bulb over the head look on his face and saves guy.

I watched it, but mostly when I ran out of other good things to watch in my Hulu queue.

"Law & Order" was just as formulaic, if not more, and it still managed to win a few Emmys.

I see people still think House was a medical drama.

I never cared much for law and order. They tried to shove to much into the allotted time frame. It's bad enough when a cop show wraps an entire investigation up in 45 minutes, but to wrap up the investigation AND the trial in that time just made the whole show to sloppy.

SpikeStrip: quick, who won the emmys last year


Off the top of my head? Kyle Chandler won Lead Actor in a Drama, because Kyle Chandler is awesome (Friday Night Lights won best Drama Screenplay as well). Peter Dinklage took Supporting Actor in a Drama. Ty Burrell took Supporting Actor in a Comedy while Julie Bowen took Supporting Actress. Jim Parsons won Lead Actor in a Comedy. I'm not 100% on Lead Actress in a Comedy, Amy Poehler maybe? One of the Good Wife women won Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, Archie Panjabi? I'm gonna guess Julianna Marguiles for Lead Actress, but I'm really not sure. Mad Men and Modern Family took the outstanding show awards.

/after looking it up, I got 8 out of 10. Melissa McCarthy won Lead Actress in a Comedy and Margo Martindale won Supporting Actress in a Drama (well deserved).

Yeah, it was more of a medical comedy.

I loved that episode. Mainly for the conversations between House and the Girl.
