Network TV got trounced by cable. I don't remember so few network shows and actors being nominated in prior years.

I don't get how Jason Bateman gets a nomination but the show itself doesn't.

Great to see Johnathan Banks get a nomination for Breaking Bad. Aaron Paul didn't really earn one this season, since Jesse was pushed so far into the background, so it would be a shame if he took it over Banks.

WILL announce??  I thought they already were.  Does this mean Tatiana Maslany has a chance after all?  :(

For me Mad Men lost the thread this season. Too little of the workplace (which I've always thought was the best part of the show) and too much of tortured Don and who he's dicking now. God lord man, it's nearly the 70s, get an analyst or something. I have continued to enjoy the arc of Peggy's character and several of the supporting cast (except Pete, fark Pete), so that has kept me watching.

Yeah, this season was a weird one. The finale was pretty good but the season was lackluster overall. I do find it neat that they've done all their callbacks to season 1 now; hopefully the final season breaks new ground.

Actually, I thought Pete was great this season, whereas I've hated him in years past.

Damn, really? I loved this season of Mad Men. I thought it was arguably its best.

Maybe it just seemed better because I was so underwhelmed by Season 5.

Makes me want to find those Emmy voters and take a hot glue gun to them.

What exactly did Elizabeth Moss do this season on Mad Men that was so worthy of a nomination over Tatiana?

It's been that way in drama for a few years.  The Good Wife is the last broadcast drama to be nominated for Best Drama and that was in 2011..  The last time more than two broadcast dramas were nominated in the same year was 2007 (Boston Legal, Grey's Anatomy, Heroes, House).

The big move now is in comedy.  Louie is the first basic cable comedy to be nominated for Outstanding Comedy.  The number of lead comedy actors in cable shows is up from six to eight.  Supporting comedy actors is up from one to four.

You can just do too many different things on cable and tell different stories in different ways.  It's not that network dramas or comedies are bad, they just can't take the chances that cable can.  And if you look at the cable comedies, they're usually as dramatic as they are funny.

I'm still waiting for someone, anyone, from Psych to get nominated.  James Roday has been awesome this season (the Shawn/Jules scene where she finds out comes to mind) and Timothy Omundson is always great.  Meanwhile, Modern Family gets three actors nominated in one category.  Should be a rule against that.

15 people watched that show and 13 of the them were critics.  I wish she'd been nominated too, but it's hardly surprising.

Bobby Cannavale over Jack Huston?

They need more interesting categories, like Most Attractive Sisters. And the nominees are:

Downton Abbey
Modern Family
Defiance

Meh, I thought  it was a little down this year outside of the Blair Witch and Lassie Gets Married episodes.

I see no nominations for Justified and only one for the Americans.  Too bad Rian Johnson didn't make it in for his episode of Breaking Bad, which was farking amazing.

In a lot of ways this season of Mad Men was a rehash of everything that happened in the first season. But then again, that's why I enjoyed it.

Doogled: I see no nominations for Justified and only one for the Americans.  Too bad Rian Johnson didn't make it in for his episode of Breaking Bad, which was farking amazing.


Yeah, that's just bullshiat. Homeland this season was mostly meh, except the scene where Kerri breaks down Brody. Everything else was pretty mediocre. Americans crushed everything, EVERYTHING they tried to do was golden. Justified took too many episodes to get to the great stuff. The early episodes were good, but not great. The ending, when they finally started getting towards the Drew Thompson fallout, was about as great as the show has ever been. Awards voters seem to nominate/vote on past reputations, b/c nothing was all that good on HBO this year, save Game of Thrones. Girls? Are you farking kidding me?
 
2013-07-18 02:49:35 PM
Once again, no love for Nick Offerman, or the show overall (save for Amy Pohler).

And honestly - Dinklage was good as always this year, but NOTHING for Charles Dance?! He owned every scene he was in this year!

/nice to see Diana Rigg get nominated, though.
 
2013-07-18 02:53:19 PM
Tatiana Maslany plays more people than Eddie Murphy does in his movies, and she didn't get a nod. fark the Emmys.

Dance didn't submit himself.  I was kind of hoping for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, though.  He was awesome.

Great show through the first three episodes, three to go.  Been watching it with my wife.

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: Tatiana Maslany plays more people than Eddie Murphy does in his movies, and she didn't get a nod. fark the Emmys.


And  without fat suits. Seriously, Maslany should just win all the awards. When she played Allison impersonating Sarah, she was able to make it absolutely clear that  this was Allison, but still imitated Sarah well enough that you could believe people might be fooled. And then, of course, Sarah got to do the opposite. You never feel like all of these characters are played by the same actress.

//Credit also goes to the makeup, costuming, and direction, but it's still mostly acting.

He didn't? That's odd.
I don't know why I didn't think of Coster-Waldau, either. Good point, he definitely deserved the recognition.

Should have, could have. Agreed on all points.

/and Diana Rigg could have easily gotten a nomination as well for "The Scarlett Horror"

I am so glad to see Vera Farmiga get a nom for bates Motel but was disappointed that Freddie Highmore did not a a young Norman. He plays Norman with the perfect mix of totally creepy and geeky.

2013-07-18 03:33:56 PM
I'm hoping that Jane Krakowski takes a win in her category.  I like the other ladies, but Jenna Maroney was absolutely killing the final season of 30 Rock.
 
2013-07-18 03:42:00 PM
I think I'm gonna have to rub sand in the nominators' eyes.
I don't know if it's graded, but....coarse!

Aaaand now I have a new fantasy scenario. Might as well back up a truckload of Fleshlights, this one'll hold me for weeks.
 
2013-07-18 04:02:37 PM
I love Mad Men, but I just finished a two week marathon of my first viewing of Game of Thrones. How in the hell does this show not win every damned award on earth?
 
2013-07-18 04:05:53 PM
My picks:

Comedy Series - Veep.  Tough choices this year, especially with 30 Rock ending and deserves some kind kind of send-off, but Veep is good and different.

Drama Series - House of Cards.  Everything else is generally popular, but kind of phoned it in this season compared to other seasons.  Yes, even GoT.  HoC easily could've fell flat since the BBC original was much shorter and still boring, but HoC managed to stretch the story out AND became compelling.

Lead Actor (Comedy) - Louis C.K.  No one can do deadpan humor like him.

Lead Actor (Drama) - Kevin Spacey.  Easily.  I always thought of him as a glorified b-list actor, but he proved me wrong.

Lead Actress (Drama) - Claire Danes.  Again, tough choices.  Kerry Washington and Robin Wright both did an amazing job.  But Homeland would not have survived as long as it did without Claire's bipolar personality.  She practically carries the show with her schizo acting.

Support Actor (Comedy) - Bill Hader.  Guy was talented on SNL.  He didn't try to be Adam Sandler or any other famous alumni - he made a name for himself.

Support Actor (Drama) - Jonathan Banks.  I would've preferred Jack Huston from Boardwalk Empire, but somehow Bobby Cannavale got nominated instead.  Dude is insane, but a bit over-the-top.

Support Actress (Drama) - Boring choices this year.  Maybe Maggie Smith, since her Dowager Countess is probably the only reason I tune in to Downton Abbey.  Can't see anyone from GoT, Homeland, or Breaking Bad getting a win.  Love Daenerys Targaryen, but not a whole lot of difficult acting there.

It's amazing how, no matter how much I remind myself that I know how it turns out, I still desperately cling to the hope that everything will turn out okay for Norman based solely on his performance.

Jonathan Banks was excellent in this season, friends and I agree he should play Whitey Bulger in the inevitable movie. Those looks of disgust are killer.

I'm with you on that. I have a feeling Freddie will get a nod next year because (again, this is my theory) he will finally have a chance to let out the full "bat-shiat crazy norman bates". But having Vera nominated was awesome!

Yep, that's indefensible.  I guess Emmy nominations were made be people who never watched Orphan Black.  Or the producers didn't petition enough.
