Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
I'm surprised that Jane Krakowski wasn't nominated for UKS. Vera Farmiga was snubbed. I thought Cuba Gooding Jr, David Schwimmer, and John Travolta were the weak links of The People vs. OJ.

Good luck to Tatiana Maslany.

Goat3001 07-14-16 11:21 AM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
Nothing against the other nominated comedies but I hope "black-ish" wins a bunch this year. This season was pretty great.

On the drama side, while I haven't watched the latest season of Orphan Black, I do hope Tatiana Maslany gets her due.

Man, Modern Family just won't die, huh? And how does Thomas Middleditch get a nom over TJ Miller?!

DJariya 07-14-16 11:26 AM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
I really hope Courtney B. Vance wins for the People vs. OJ Simpson. He was fantastic. Same goes for Sterling K. Brown.

I think OJ is practically a lock for limited series win. Fargo's second season was well reviewed, but it really didn't have the same kind of buzz as OJ did.

I'm glad Bokeem Woodbine got a nom for Fargo.

Different categories one is lead the other is supporting,also perrenial nominees Louie CK and Matt LeBlanc didn't have any new episodes of their shows so it opened up 2 spots for lead actor.

That said TJ or Zach Woods should have gotten in over Andre Braugher or Tony Hale who are basically on autopilot with their roles now.

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
The Americans!

And the first time that The Good Wife shows up is in the Guest categories.

Very happy to see the increased presence of the former, and the decreased presence of the latter.

The Americans gets recognized! Fucking finally!
:banana: :dance: :banana: :dance: :banana: :dance: :banana: :dance:

Still wish they had found room to nominate Noah Emmerich and/or Dylan Baker in the Supporting Actor category, but still it's nice to know that at least Emmy voters are aware the show exists* now that Breaking Bad and Mad Men are off the air.

:lol: * excluding Margot Martingdale. The voters are certainly aware she's on The Americans, no matter how briefly she appears, she always gets a nod

mcnabb 07-14-16 12:24 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
I hope The Americans wins for Best Drama as I can't get any of my friends/family to watch it (I hope I can sway them with, "Come on the show just won an Emmy!", as its the most underrated show on TV. Keri Russell really deserves Best Actress as I thought she had a strong season, and to me is the centerpiece of the show. Matthew Rhys is great too.

Draven 07-14-16 12:27 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
Considering that Tatiana Maslany is the best actor working on TV today full-stop, she more than deserves the nomination and the win. :thumbsup:

Decker 07-14-16 12:35 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
Looking through those nominations : Look, I'm the biggest People vs OJ Simpson fan out there, but there is NO WAY ON EARTH that Cuba Gooding Jr is 1) the lead actor on that show or 2) more deserving of a nomination that Patrick Wilson's brilliant, steady lead performance in Fargo Season 2. Hard to figure how that selection happened. People vs OJ was fantastic in spite of Cuba Gooding's performance, not because of it.

Traxan 07-14-16 01:05 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
Sarah Paulson could have a really great night. Two separate noms, one that's a shoo-in.

But... no noms for Longmire again. I am pissed.

Decker 07-14-16 01:29 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
I swear, Howard Gordon must have nude pictures of Emmy voters or something. How Homeland keeps getting Best Drama nods is totally beyond me.

Would have liked to see You're The Worst get some recognition, but realized that one was a longshot.

Osiris3657 07-14-16 01:36 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
Man, that Limited Series category is crazy. I haven't seen Roots (or even heard of it), but the rest of those were all amazing. You could make an argument for all...but I'd lean to People vs OJ. Best show I've seen so far this year.

Osiris3657 07-14-16 01:39 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
Even though I'm new to The Americans (only started the show this year and caught up at the season finale), I think it deserves all the accolades and hope it wins.

It's funny - in December it was a slam-dunk that Fargo would be walking away with all the Emmys this year. Then the freight train called People vs OJ Simpson came along and Fargo is almost an afterthought. Damn you FX and all your quality programming!

I still think Fargo gets most of the awards it's up for. Kirsten Dunst should definitely win it, dontcha know.

I'd take that bet in a heartbeat. Sarah Paulson wins Best Actress, going away. She's more of a lock than Julia Louise-Dreyfuss is. It's a shame since Dunst did great work, but Paulson was positively iconic.

I was surprised that Modern Family got nominated. Maybe next year a streaming show or cable show will knock it out of the best comedy category.

If Dunst has to lose, I hope it's to Sarah Paulson.

Happy for The Americans. But yeah, they could easily nominate the full cast. I didn't check the whole list, but the teenage daughter deserved a nomination.

And yeah, WTF with Homeland, and Claire Danes receiving nominations. Are you kidding me?

Shannon Nutt 07-14-16 04:36 PM

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
SO happy David Schwimmer got nominated. I was worried with all those showy (and, granted, good) performances around him that he'd be passed over. His was my favorite performance in 'The People vs. OJ Simpson' and I think it's the best performance of his career.

I love both TJ Miller and Zach Woods but think that Gary's moments in 'Mother' ("Praying for a miracle!") and his end of season meltdown totally justify the Tony Hale nomination.

Hope The Americans wins everything it possibly can.

Red Dog 07-14-16 05:29 PM

Nice to see The Americans finally getting the recognition they deserve.

Wish The Grinder/Rob Lowe got nominated. Modern Family shouldn't be getting nominations anymore.

I am big Homeland fan, but the show is a shell of itself anymore. The creators really gave Carrie some good character development and good dramatic scenes in the first few seasons that led to her Emmy nomination. But the show is basically '24' these days and she doesn't do anything dramatic to warrant a nomination other then run around be Superman?

It is a crime Kelly Ripa did not get nominated for best actress for the series finale of Kelly & Michael.

Oh yeah, I'm actually a show watcher. Not hate watching, I'm just used to watching the show. Every year I make an excuse why I keep watching. ;)

Re: 2016 Emmy Nominations
 
No nomination for Penny Dreadful and especially Eva Green? For me her performance in a coupe of the episodes this season were award winning. I look at the lists and it's truly sad. If shit like Big Bang Theory can be considered award winning then it shows what little worth these awards have. And seriously....resort tv host and game show host? Who cares. Johnathan Banks should win, but he has competition. Also, can someone explain to me how Emilia Clarke can be nominated? Her acting skills leave a lot to be desired, and she is one of the weakest performers in GoT.

I still found Fargo better than People vs OJ. It's a toss up in terms of acting (Paulson and Vance especially), but the writing was much, much better on Fargo.

I am a big fan of her character on the show, but they honestly don't give her much to do in terms of acting on this show. I don't know if she is a great actress cause they have never given her anything that would show her range.
