My thoughts:

Thrilled About:
  • The Outstanding Drama nomination for "Mr. Robot". It's really gratifying to see the Emmy bias against basic cable starting to fade.
  • Tatiana Maslany's second consecutive Lead Actress in a Drama nomination for "Orphan Black". It's not just that the gimmick of the show presents her with a greater challenge than any other actress on television. It's that she does Emmy-level worth with each performance she gives. Very happy to see that, now that she's on Emmy voters' radar, they're taking notice of her immense achievement.
  • Maisie Williams's Supporting Actress in a Drama nomination. She's been one of the real MVPs of the "Game of Thrones" cast from the beginning, and it's nice to see the Emmys overcome their reluctance to nominate child actors (though she's pretty much an adult at this point).
  • Matt Walsh's Supporting Actor in a Commedy nomination for "Veep". Finally! For some reason, Tony Hale's the only one the Emmys recognize from the male side of the cast.
  • Bryan Cranston's Lead Actor in a ... Movie nomination for "All The Way". Probably as close you could get to a slam dunk, but still. He was phenomenal.

Happy About:
  • "Game of Thrones" getting 23 nominations, including Outstanding Drama. After winning so many Emmys last year for arguably the show's worst season, it's nice to see the love for arguably the show's best season.
  • Carrie Preston's Guest Actress in a Drama nomination for "The Good Wife". This wasn't Elsbeth Tascioni's best season, but the character is a wonderful creation.
  • The Outstanding Comedy nominations for "black-ish" and "Silicon Valley". This category can use some new blood.
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus's Lead Actress in a Comedy nomination for "Veep". I know this isn't exactly a surprise, since she's an Emmy favorite, but she did seriously incredible work in Season 5.
  • Anna Chlumsky's Supporting Actress in a Comedy nomination for "Veep". Again, a perrenial nominee. But again, an actress who deserves it.
  • The Guest Actor in a comedy nominations for Martin Mull and Peter MacNicol. Both made the most of their scenes in the fifth season of "Veep".
  • Melissa Leo's Supporting Actress in a ... Movie nomination for "All The Way". She imbued Lady Bird Johnson with interesting complexity and nuances. Probably my favorite performance in that telefilm outside the lead role.

Unhappy About:
  • Does "Homeland" really deserve the continued Emmy love?
  • Does "Modern Family" really deserve the continued Emmy love?
  • Where's the Emmy love for "Outlander"? How the show continues to be so largely ignored just completely escapes me. At least on the creative arts side, it got well-deserved nominations for costumes and production design.
  • Where's the Emmy love for "The Leftovers"? Its second season was out of this world.
  • No Lead Actress nomination for Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones?
  • It's criminal that Kevin Dunn and Gary Cole have never been nominated for "Veep". Sam Richardson too, for that matter.

Since it's arguably the best show on TV. it's nice to see that the Emmys started noticing The Americans and its cast again. Deciding between The Americans, Better Call Saul and Mr. Robot would damn near be Sophie's choice for me.


Julia Louis-Dreyfus's Lead Actress in a Comedy nomination for "Veep". I know this isn't exactly a surprise, since she's an Emmy favorite, but she did seriously incredible work in Season 5.
That funeral episode is going to win her a fifth (?) Emmy in a row.

Where's the Emmy love for "The Leftovers"? Its second season was out of this world.
That's the worst snub to me. Unfortunately, I completely expected it because the show isn't seen enough to get Emmys.

"Mother" deservedly got a lot of attention, but my favorite bit of acting from JLD was the scene in the Green Room of the White House, where Selina's reeling after learning the fate of her presidency. And a tour group walks in, unaware that the president's in there, and this one woman from Kansas is just really awed to be meeting the president. JLD just plays so many beautiful nuances in that scene.

If I have a complaint about the generally excellent fifth season (other than mangling the mechanics of the Twentieth Amendment), it's that it went a bit too broad at times in pursuit of laughs. But that scene is as good as anything in Iannucci's tenure at the helm.
