2014 Emmy Nominations

Tatiana Maslany got fucked.
I can't believe she wasn't nominated. Again.
The second season wasn't as strong as the first, but she knocked it out of the park again. Maybe there weren't enough crying scenes for her to get nominated. Or over the top monologues.

Nice to see Lena get a nod from the Emmys.
Also, woo-hoo, Shameless got two nominations. Joan Cusack and William H. Macy are both fantastic, though of course they switch their category to comedy during the shows most dramatic season . I would be ecstatic if either won.
Also, any show that beats Modern Family or BBT counts as a win in my eyes.

Best drama actor is McConaughey for me.

Boardwalk Empire? Never heard of it.
As much as I love Bryan Cranston, I honestly hope Matthew McConaughey gets the Best Actor nod. If he doesn't, it'll be just another case of hype-over-quality, which the Emmys are famous for.
And I also want Billy Bob Thornton to win Best Actor in a Miniseries, cause he blew me away in Fargo. His acting was up to par with Matthew's, I'd say. And I guess if not him, I'd be okay if Martin Freeman got that award, both of them were great.
Those are really the only two categories I care about this year.

Why is Dinklage always nominated as a "supporting" actor and not as a lead actor?
Because the networks are who submit candidates for consideration to be nominees, and he's more likely to win the supporting award. Also, even though he's the closest GoT has to a lead, his percentage of the show's screen time pales next to other show's leads.
Outside of GoT, I really hope this is the year Amy Poehler finally gets an Emmy, but its almost certainly going to JLD again (not that she isn't worthy as well of course).
The Lead Actor for a Drama series is just brutal, or it would be if Jeff Daniels hadn't won it for the Newsroom last year; thus proving that the category is a joke.

I'm glad they have so many overall nominations! But I agree, I would have rather Pedro Pascal got guest actor nomination than Diana Rigg. Although I do think she's well cast and at least game of thrones got nominated in yet another category!

I always feel bad when two co-workers get nominated in the same category. That's why I'd probably go with Bryan, or perhaps Kevin Spacey. Haven't seen Mad Men or The Newsroom.
I also feel for the Game of Thrones cast, so many of them are so talented and yet obviously they can't all get nominated. Also, I feel for Martin Freeman. BBT stealing the limelight, and it doesn't look like Sherlock's going to win either :/ I hope Robin Wright wins in her category, and Lena Headey obviously.
Even if Taylor Schilling was a lead actress, I don't think she's worthy of an Emmy.

I'm really hoping for an upset in best actor, MM really deserves it for TD. I know it's not going to happen though.
Billy Bob Thornton totally deserves the win for best actor in a mini series. He was fantastic as Malvo in Fargo.
