WTF Leslie Jones got nominated?

I'm happy for Ann Dowd and Carrie Coon's nominations.

Re: 2017 Emmy nominations

Was "The Leftovers" considered a Limited Series? I was expecting more love for the show, but was really surprised there to only find one nomination : Carrie Coon in the Limited Series Actress category for The Leftovers instead of Fargo. I expected she would be in the Best Drama Actress for Leftovers and Best Limited Series Actress for Fargo.

Re: 2017 Emmy nominations

The Americans didn't get nominated for Best Drama??? But the overrated Stranger Things and House of Cards was nominated? I have never seen This Is Us, so I can't comment on it.

Meh, this last season of The Americans was pretty forgettable.

She was nominated for Fargo, I think whoever did that initial list just typed in what they knew her from.

It was a pretty disappointing season for the show outside of the acting. Personally, as a HUGE fan of The Americans, I am 100% okay with Rhys and Russell getting nominated and with Stranger Things getting the Dramatic Series nod over The Americans.

I totally agree. Her nomination also baffles me because she doesn't do impersonations or original characters. Vanessa Bayer also got nominated and that is a total surprise. Vanessa had her weak moments on SNL, but she is much better than Jones. Vanessa at least did impersonations and her Jennifer Aniston impersonation was very good. I also liked her kid characters that appeared on Weekend Update. Jones doesn't do any original characters on WU and this past season she constantly flubbed her lines.

Michael McKean not getting a nom for Best Supporting Actor is bullshit.

I would have thought Stranger Things (not underrated, IMO) would have fell under the Limited Series category. There were only eight episodes.

A long time ago, this would have been called a Mini-Series.

I would agree with you except the Emmys and Golden Globes rarely vote on how great each season in that context and more the show in general. House of Cards has been going downhill for years yet it gets nominated.

My point is they didn't nominate The Americans the first 3 seasons and finally nominated last season, so I figured it would get another nomination this year to make up for the early seasons snubs.

And I agree that Michael McKean should have been nominated for BCS. The guy will always be Lenny from Laverne & Shirley and was able to shed that comedic image and make me realize how great an actor he is.

Re: 2017 Emmy nominations

The youngest daughter (with the glasses) on Black-ish deserved a nomination. She's funnier than most of the other nominees.

Jones is not even in the same profession as Bayer, let alone a comparable performer. Then again Bayer wasn't 'victimized' for being terrible in a terrible movie, so that evens things out.

Re: 2017 Emmy nominations

These are the ones I have the strongest opinions on and I'll be rooting for:

Bod Odenkirk for best actor, drama

Evan Rachel Wood for actress, drama (Robin Wright's my second choice)

Better Call Saul for Best Drama (though I'd also be happy if Stranger Things won)

I'm on the fence between Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) and Thandie Newton (Westworld) for best supporting actress, drama


Sad to see no love for The Leftovers, though their last episode or two aired after the deadline. I don't know what that means about their eligibility to submit either this year or next year.

It was for this year. The eligibility rules dictate that over half the season airs during the eligibility period. Most famously The Sopranos finale Made in America aired in early June but won Emmys that September. It's also the reason why Twin Peaks is not eligible even though it premiered in May.

Re: 2017 Emmy nominations

A few observations:

- Agree to leave The Americans out
- Michael McKean should have gotten the supporting nod for BCS over Banks
- Ewan McGregor shouldn't have (though I can see why he was included)
- Too bad no love for The Leftovers
- Would have replaced Modern Family w/something else
