    Great to see GOT in the Best Drama fight.

    Great to see the Big 4 networks pretty much shut out of the Best Drama Series category.

    Once again John Noble has been overlooked. Not surprised at all.

    They were for the first time in the history of the Emmys. No CBS, Fox, ABC or NBC. PBS only aired Downton Abbey, no involvement with production.

    Downton Abbey is maybe even the highest rated show of the Best Dramas as 5.4 million watched the season finale on PBS, not taking in DVR and repeat viewing. Homeland has the tiniest audience, Breaking Bad, Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire still are small and Game of Thrones is healthy but gone are the days of Best Drama nominees like Lost, 24 and even The Sopranos which could command over 12 million viewers live.

    Parks and Recreation and Community both earned 3 best comedy writing nominations but none for Best Comedy.

    Shows from FX and Starz were pretty much ignored once again.

    Nick Offerman is going to have to join the cast of Modern Family if he wants a nomination.

    Zero nominations for The Office. :)

    I don't know why I keep hoping that Psych gets nominated.

    And I know what Modern Family does with the supporting actor category but damn, barely anyone else can be nominated

    How is Hugh Lauire not nominated. He's been nominated for every season of House except for the final season.

    I'm surprised that Suits got no love. I thought Macht would at least get a nomination, especially considering how much the Academy LOVED Jeremy Piven and Macht is basically playing a well-rounded, better developed Ari Gold.

    No Community for Best Comedy Series or nominations for any of the cast (most especially Danny Pudi, Donald Glover, Allison Brie or Joel McHale) while The Big Bang Theory continues to compete for the top prize and Best Actor?! :eek: Even Girls is nominated which while I liked the early episodes quickly become incredibly boring and frustrating when you realize it's the same plot and joke again and again.

    Why does nobody ever nominate Michael Pitt for Boardwalk Empire?

    Emmy Rossum snubbed again for Best Actress?

    At the very least Peter Dinklage for Game of Thrones and Homeland for Series, Actor and Actress were recognized.

    He'll get a nomination next year, when he stars in the prequel TBS sitcom Tyler Perry's House of Denethor.

    F*** Modern Family. Seriously, there is no way THAT many people in the cast deserve a nomination, I don't care how much of a hard-on the Emmys have for that show.

    Plenty of Curb and Veep noms. :up:

    The usually underappreciated Dot Jones being the only Glee nomination. :up:

    Max Greenfield. :up:

    The Office gets shut out. :up:

    Jason Ritter being nominated for Parenthood. Show deserves more, but one is better than none. :up:

    American Horror Story (but no McDermott?) sweeping the miniseries category. :up:

    Once Upon a Time getting nominated for costume design and visual effects. I figured it wouldn't end up in any of the big categories, but it deserves it for these. :up:

    Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory continue to be nominated for things. :down

    Too few GOT nominations. :down

    No John Noble. Or anything Fringe, for that matter. Not that I'm particularly surprised. BSG never got any love, and that show was ridiculously Emmy-quality. End the sci-fi bigotry, Emmy voters. :down


    I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of any...

    I love the show, but I'm man enough to admit that it's incredibly overrated, especially by Emmy voters.

    Still...... soooooo much better than The Big Bang Theory or anything by Chuck Lorre.

    Well, you're half right.

    Still though, even as a Big Bang Theory fan, I have to say that there are plenty of other shows out there that deserve nominations. I almost think there should be a cutoff point for the Emmys... like, you can't be nominated more than three years for the same show/role/etc. Because there are so many great shows that I think people don't even consider because they have their favorites.

    Overall I'm pretty happy with the list of nominations. Glad that Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and Dexter are in the running (they always are) and it's great to see American Horror Story in there along with a few nominations for New Girl.

    USA just can't catch a break. They make Suits which is basically their prestige show and still no love.

    At any rate, Larry David better win best comedic actor, especially with such a weak field this year. Curb should win too. The comedy field is REALLY weak this year.

    It is the strongest nominee but for the voting members it may not be weak. They seemed to love the lowly rated Girls.

    Yeah, Girls is an odd one. I like the show, but I wouldn't nominate it for anything. There are too many storylines that Dunham just seems to forget about and too many other things that just happen out of the blue for that show to receive this kind of acclaim. On the other hand though, I do think that the people who took to the Internet every week and typed 5,000 word essays every week on the show's flaws were overdoing it as well.

    I'm glad Veep got in there. Easily my favorite of the new comedies this year. In fact it was probably my favorite of all the comedies this year (but I didn't watch this season of Curb).

    And Max Greenfield's BY FAR the best part of New Girl, so it's nice to see him getting recognized, too. :up:

    I'm easy to please when it comes to the drama categories: As long as Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones get some love, I'm happy. Bonus points for Dexter (in the acting department, at least) and Homeland.

    The question that this then begs is whether this is because the Emmy's are going the route of the Oscar's in eschewing what's 'popular' in favour of what's 'artistic' and/or 'edgy'.

    Also to ask is whether the Big 4's absence in the Best Drama category is because they are mostly procedural shows - are procedural shows inherently not nomination-worthy OR has there been a lack of innovation and noteworthiness about the current crop of procedural shows?
