    Disappointed Tatiana Maslany wasn't nominated for Orphan Black. I realize it doesn't fit the Emmy mold, but her performance was incredible.

    :(

    It is an absolute and total travesty that Parks & Rec was left off the list for Best Comedy Series. It should be winning that category every year. Same for Nick Offerman in Supporing Actor in a Comedy Series.

    3 or 4 Modern Family guys and no Nick Offerman continues to be the worst Emmy shame in years.

    30 Rock had a great last year, I thought it really finished up well. No problems with any of those noms. But I'm a Jenna liker, I know we have some haters around these parts.

    Claire Danes, Homeland, Showtime
    Mandy Patinkin, Homeland
    Emilia Clarke, Game Of Thrones

    Hamm should win, damn it. Danes continued to be perfect in Homeland. I could have gone Moss, but she better win for Top of the Lake.

    Comedy
    30 Rock, NBC
    Louis CK, Louie, FX
    Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation, NBC
    Adam Driver, Girls, HBO
    Mayim Bialik , The Big Bang Theory, CBS

    These were actually pretty easy choices for me. Clear choices.

    The Good Wife is the best show for guest actors by far. Every week some fantastic actor gets to do wonderful work.

    As much as I want to pick Emilia and Christina for their "assets" Christine has been excellent throughout the run of The Good Wife.

    Peter is the obvious choice to me. Although he had less screen time than other seasons.

    I have only ever watched one of the shows nominated - The Big Bang Theory. I've never even seen the others. Sad, huh?

    The sad part to me is that you have to pay EXTRA to see so many of these shows. If you don't have HBO or Showtime, you miss out on a lot. And now Netflix as well.

    Only 10 of the 42 Drama nominations are on broadcast tv, so maybe not surprising. And 7 of those are Good Wife/Downton Abbey.

    I actually find the Netflix nominations odd. Not That Spacey and Wright are not deserving but that a series that is strictly view on demand is considered for a Prime Time Emmy.

    It's not just the premium channels, It's all paying extra when you've cut the cord.


    Hey maybe they can win a daytime Emmy too!

    yup.

    In the Drama category, there is nothing on broadcast TV. I've got basic cable, so I miss out on the premium cable stuff. At least I can get the House of Cards on disc via Netflix. That show is excellent.

    But most of us have Tivo/DVR. We don't always watch our shows in primetime anymore. That's just an extension of that. Even HBO and the like schedule those shows throughout the day. They aren't strictly prime time either.

    You're paying extra for Netflix too :)
