    Glad to see Vera Farmiga and Jessica Lange nominated.

    Disappointed "The Walking Dead" was over-looked. :(

    On the one hand it's cool that they finally recognized multiple Game of Thrones actors. On the other, it would have been cooler if they had recognized the right ones. I'm not sure I'd call Emilia Clarke one of the six best actresses on the show* let alone on television, and while I love Peter Dinklage this really should have been Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's year. Diana Rigg is of course perfect and I hope she wins.

    Happy about the writing and series nods too, but I'm beginning to wonder what exactly they have to do to get another directing nomination. Last year "Blackwater" gets snubbed, and this year both "And Now His Watch Has Ended" and "The Rains of Castamere"?

    Also, I'd love to see Charles Dance get nominated, but I don't believe he's ever been submitted for the show, which I find baffling. Given that he's one of their more recognizable actors, plays a larger than life character that makes him impossible to ignore, is pretty much universally considered one of the very best parts of the show, and would (I assume) be in the less-competitive Guest category, I would think he'd be one of the most likely actors to earn a nomination.


    *Not that she's terrible or anything, she's just inconsistent and a little one-note for me (and she really needs to lay of the "stare straight ahead with dead eyes" move that she keeps going back to), but that stands out when the rest of the cast is so strong.

    I hope Peter Dinklage wins. I think he is due. I do agree that Nikolaj had quite a bit to work with this year and would have been a good nomination but Dinklage is always spot on and deserves an Emmy.

    Completely agree about NCW being snubbed. Jaime's path to redemption is one of the best story lines in the books and he did an excellent job with it in the series.

    It *is* nice to see Elisabeth Moss nominated for both Mad Men and Top of the Lake. Always thought she was a very good actress.

    I think very strong nominations overall. I'm rooting for Breaking Bad but I think Homeland will take most of the awards. There are so many strong TV dramas at the moment. The only nomination I quibble with is Emilia Clarke. I love Game of Thrones but her performance is not much to write home about as gorgeous as she is to look at.

    How many of the "Outstanding lead actor in a miniseries or movie" nominees will actually show up?

    Also, if anyone from Nashville should have been nominated, it was Hayden Panetierre.

    I'm thrilled for Netflix. I have really liked all of their original program with the exception of Hemlock Grove. I actually didn't mind the few episodes I saw but I could really care less about werewolves. It wasn't a bad show just not for me. I hope this encourages them to keep putting out quality series.

    If Tim Gunn could have been nominated without Heidi, I think he would win.

    Glad to see Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage (again) recognized, but I agree that this was Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's year.

    Also really liked Adam Driver nominated for Girls, he was really great. (Lena otoh :blah:). I can't wait until Modern Family is over and stops hogging the supporting category. Really glad that Mayim Bialik and Merrit Wever snuck in there.

    Shut out for New Girl ... interesting.

    I guess I will have to check out "House of Cards" on Netflix now. :lol:

    Surprised that Julianne Margulies was not nominated for "The Good Wife." Although it wasn't a great day for the "Big 3" broadcast networks, so maybe it isn't that much of a surprise. :shuffle:

    :lol: And I thought Dan Akroyd was the best supporting player in "Behind the Candelabra." I barely even remember Rob Lowe in it, he was onscreen all of about two minutes at the most. In all honesty, I thought the movie was vastly overrated anyway. I didn't believe Michael Douglas for a moment in that role. They should have cast Barry Manilow. :p

    From 5 nominations the year before to zero this year is quite the step down.

    Archie Panjabi was not nominated either. Nathan Lane got nominated for best guest Actor on TGW, but also for best guest Actor for Modern Family.

    Just read that between his FX show, his HBO special, and his SNL hosting gig, Louis CK received NINE nominations today. Damn.

    Dan Akroyd was great too. Rob Lowe and the California diet are totally etched in my memory, though. ;)

    How does anyone figure Robert Morse belongs in the guest actor category? He is a cast member of Mad Men and has been for almost 70 episodes; that's not being a guest.

    The Emmys are really getting boring, there are too many shows and they keep picking the same shows and actors.

    I haven't watched Behind the Candelabra yet, but I know when it first aired, a lot of people were thinking Matt Damon would be submitted as supporting actor so that both he and Michael Douglas would win.

    So happy Jason Bateman got a nomination for Arrested Development, but surprised for the lack of other nominations (even though it wasn't that great of a season). I at least expected some sort of guest acting nomination, for Ben Stiller, or Kristen Wiig, or Seth Rogan. And of course, Will Arnett is always deserving.

    Also surprised that James Marsden wasn't nominated for guest actor for 30 Rock. And the complete lack of acknowledgement for Dexter. That was a serious season, with Deb finding out about him. The fact that Jennifer Carpenter has not yet received a single nomination for the show is insane.

    And also disappointed that the Academy continues to disregard Community. Sure season 4 wasn't a good as the previous seasons (which were also ignored), but Danny Pudi and Jim Rash are definitely deserving of supporting actor nominations.

    Bummed about Hayden - she deserved a nom this year - her work the whole season was stellar, but her acting in the finale was just amazing. Hiss.

    Emilie Clarke? Why? I think she's gotten worse since season 1. And they've given her character precious little to do (pretty much like the book - she just wanders around the desert like a Hobbit with dragons). Michelle Fairley should have been there instead. I also would have subbed out Peter for Nikolaj or Charles Dance.

    I'm fine with no Archie this year - Kalina's character took several giant steps back. :cheer2: to Christine Baranski's nod. Diane Lockhart is awesome. And hooray for Carrie, Nathan, and MJ Fox - TGW does amazing with their guest stars.

    :cheer2: for The Voice.

    I'm hoping this is the year that The Daily Show's winning streak ends for Variety Series, Colbert is overdue.

    I agree!

    I like Modern Family, but it's in no way funnier than Parks & Rec or Happy Endings. And no love for Nick Offerman? It's insane that Ron Swanson has no Emmy nods! I thought Julianna Margulies also deserved a nod.

    I like Emilia Clarke, but I thought other actresses on GoT were stronger this year.

    The sooner the Girls hype ends, the better :blah:

    I'm happy with most of the nominations. Folks have to remember, the shows "choose" what episode should be up for emmy consideration, not the EMMYs.

    Emilia Clarke has some incredible moments this season.

    Downton Abbey is going to rack up this season as is the network of HBO.

    My prediction for next season, Showtime's Ray Donovan will the be darling of the nominations. Ray Donovan is simply FANTASTIC.

    I know everyone is talking about Tatiana Maslany's non emmy nom but the picks for this year are stellar. Did BBC submit the show for consideration?

    I really like Girls but lord the last season was weak. The whole OCD thing came out of left field and the story lines often seem left completely without an end. What about that incredibly odd episode where she has an affair with a doctor? So freaking odd and never mentioned again? They need to work on resolution, even for smaller side story lines. I love Lena Dunham though and I think she gets a lot of credit for writing and directing along with acting in the show, so I think that helps her as well as the show since it is so much hers. I just don't think this year she deserves the big awards and I doubt she gets them.\

    I also hope that Orange is the New Black gets nominations next year. It is, by far, the best ensemble cast. Which show has that award, the Golden Globes? I hope they at least get a nomination but I have no idea if the show will get enough critical acclaim to gain traction. It certainly helps that the other Netflix shows got nominations so they are not afraid to nominate them.

    SAG Awards. And I agree, they're amazing. I'd love nominations for the actresses that play Sophia & Red.

    Crazy Eyes is my favorite. She is amazing at what she does. I would love to see her on Broadway (apparently a lot of the actresses were recruited from the theater).

    The Colbert Report will most likely get robbed yet again, so, blah. I'd love to be wrong about that though.

    She may get a Golden Globe nom instead. The GGs seem more up on new performances. Emmys typically like the old standbys.

    Definitely surprised Matt Damon wasn't put into supporting actor (though technically he was more the lead than Douglas was). Michael Douglas will win hands down.
