2014 Emmy Nominations

http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/...ry?id=24501383


How did "The Normal Heart" escape nomination other than Mark Ruffalo?

Ok I missed the other actors, but I was talking about Best Mniiseries or Movie.
I'd love to see Parsons win for Normal Heart.

A friend of mine says since Orphan Black is a Canadian production, it's not eligible for the Emmys. That makes sense.

Not true. Downton Abbey got a whole lot of nominations and that's an English production. Critics wouldn't be talking about Tatiana being snubbed if she wasn't eligible.

Isn't Orphan Black basically a Science Fiction show? (I haven't watched it yet, but it's piling up on the TiVo).

Sci-Fi has a long and storied history of being ignored by awards.

BBC's Luther is nominated for some awards.

As I saw noted elsewhere, Tatiana Maslany should be nominated for best actress and best supporting actress in the drama and comedy categories. These Emmy nominations are a joke if she's not on the list.

It's a BBC America co-production; I'm pretty sure that makes it eligible.

well same complaints as last year

- Tatiana Maslany
- Keri Russell for The Americans
- The Walking Dead
- The Good Wife for Best Drama (this season was amazing)

and just as an aside not that I would expect it but RuPaul's Drag Race

i also thought - guess I was wrong - Breaking Bad was done being eligible

I'm seriously annoyed at Tatiana Maslany not being nominated, but I'm not surprised.

I was surprised and pleased to see Allison Janney for Mom.

The Best Actor in a Drama category is going to be interesting. For a long time it was Bryan Cranston's to lose. The final season of Breaking Bad was incredible. But now you have Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey from True Detective and it's no longer a gimme for Cranston. Then throw in last year's surprise winner, Jeff Daniels for the Newsroom. I don't expect him to have a chance this year but I would have said the same thing last year.

Nobody ever likes "Shameless" as well! Finally Macy got a nod this year.

Right, foreign shows are eligible for Emmys, but science fiction isn't.

Apparently.

Somebody pointed out to me that, except for the two years in the mid-1990s when it was entered as a comedy series instead of as an animated program, this is the first time in the show's history that The Simpsons was not nominated in the Animated Program category.

Somebody else pointed out that this is the first time in 33 years that NBC has no shows nominated in the Comedy Series category.

Would like to see Spacey win over Cranston.

I like that Fargo got a nom but I didn't realize I was watching a mini-series.

Apparently, "Outstanding Hairstyling For A Single-Camera Series" is an actual award. The Originals is nominated for that one.

Just started watching HoC and, though I believe BB to be one of the finest TV series ever, I have to agree that Spacey is outstanding in his role...

Interesting to see Martin Freeman for Fargo up against Benedict Cumberbatch for Sherlock competing for best actor in a miniseries. Then Freeman is nominated for best supporting in a mini series.

I think House of Cards isn't worth a nomination for best drama. This season was not in the same league as the first season, IMO. I would probably put The Good Wife in there due to arguably its best season ever.

The Maslany situation is crazy. That show wavers in quality but it would be total garbage if not for her work. And Kerry Washington was not that great this season. Her shtick is wearing off in Scandal. Easy swap there, IMO.

If there is any justice in the world, Louie would win best comedy. There is, however, almost zero chance of that happening despite it being head and shoulders above the other nominees this season.

Is it true that it doesn't matter how good a season is (though it helps) since each program can only submit one episode per category?

If Peter Dinklage is Best Supporting Actor, who is he supporting? Methinks they picked a category he could win.

Ditto for Allison Tollman. She's not supporting. She's a co-star to Martin Freeman and BB Thornton.

Margo Martindale deserves best supporting.

As does Edie Falco deserve Best Actress for Nurse Jackie.

They also have too many where two stars in teh same show compete against each other. That nullifies both of them

How about Martin Freeman being up for two different shows?

Agree. When I first heard her mentioned here I thought it was for The Millers.

How did Spader not get a nomination? He's chewed more scenery than all the rest of those guys combined.

Actually, best actor in a comedy really has some heavyweights this year.

Mini-series and movies are separate again this year.

Also, how exactly is the last season of Treme a mini-series?
