67th Emmy Award Nominations
The 2015 Emmys are officially on their way, with the announcement of the nominees this morning. See the full list below.
Some first thoughts on it: Our comedy Queens and Kings are getting. it.
Amy Schumer, Will Forte, Kate McKinnon and Keegan-Michael Key all got nominations (please can I sit with this group?).
The snubs include Ellie Kemper, Gina Rodriguez and Andy Samberg (and Jim Parsons, but let's be real, the fact he's won four times is the more shocking).
For dramas, the snubs hit last year's winner Julianna Marguilies, as well as Kerry Washington. But Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson AND Tatiana Maslany got noms, so you lose some you win some?
American Horror Story and Transparent both got their deserved nominations and for that, I am happy.
Some of the biggest snubs were the complete shut-outs of acclaimed shows like Empire (other than Taraji, thank GOD), The Americans, and the one that hit me hard: The Affair.
WHAT GIVES EMMYS. THE GLOBES GET IT.

I thought of you immediately when I saw The Affair got shutout. Overall, these are such good nominations though! They've been loving the variety sketch series performers lately and for that I'm grateful. Armisen last year and Key this year. Kudos for those noms. My favourite show, The Good Wife, is always overlooked for Drama Series, but I had a feeling Margulies would slip this year. She's in and out all the time. Odd.

I'm happy for the comedic performances getting recognized, not just actors but writers as well (and thank god Jim Parsons is off of it). I heard Margulies wasn't as good this year so that's not surprising. I'm mostly just mad about the snuffs to The Affair (and The Americans, that had one of its best seasons yet).
