2015 Golden Globes TV nominations: who got recognized & who got snubbed?

wenn21816335

There were some big surprises and some not-so-big snubs with the Golden Globes nominations for TV and miniseries. Like, the Hollywood Foreign Press is totally over Mad Men. And they’re over Masters of Sex too, which I understand because Season 2 was crazy-uneven. But still, the HFPA likes Downton Abbey, Fargo and everybody loves Viola Davis. Here are the TV nominations (please don’t threadjack with the movie nominations, I’m doing a separate post for them):

Drama TV Actress: Claire Danes, Viola Davis, Julianna Marguiles, Ruth Wilson, Robin Wright

Supporting actress in a TV show/series: Kathy Bates, Joanna Froggatt, Allison Janney, Uzo Adoba, Michelle Monaghan

Lead Actress in Comedy TV: Lena Dunham, Edie Falco, Julia Louis-Dreyfes, Gina Rodriguez, Taylor Schilling

Best Mini-Series Or Motion Picture Made for Television: Fargo, The Missing, The Normal Heart, Oliver Kitterege, True Detective

Supporting Actor in a TV series: Alan Cumming, Colin Hanks, Matt Bomer, Bill Murray, Jon Voight

Lead Actor in a Comedy TV: Louis CK, Don Cheadle, Ricky Gervais, Jeffrey Tambor, William H. Macy

Best Comedy TV: Girls, Jane the Virgin, Orange is the New Black, Silicon Valley, Transparent

Best Drama TV: The Affair, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, House of Cards

Lead Actor in a Miniseries/TV Movie
Martin Freeman, Fargo
Woody Harrelson, True Detective
Matthew Mcconaughey, True Detective
Mark Ruffalo, The Normal Heart
Billy Bob Thornton, Fargo

Lead Actor in a Drama:
Clive Owen, The Knick
Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan
Kevin Spacey, House of Cards
James Spader, The Blacklist
Dominic West, The Affair

I’m kind of surprised that the HFPA still doesn’t care for Orphan Black. I’m also surprised by the love shown to Colin Hanks and Fargo, but that’s such a good show, so it’s nice to see it recognized. And Viola Davis is killing it, right? Let’s see… no Peter Dinklage? Damn, bro. And no Benedict Cumberbatch either for Sherlock. Huh. But Martin Freeman’s nomination is well-deserved.

    No Amy Poehler either.

    • someone says:

      exactly! where is parks and rec? where is the mindy project? mindy kaling deserves a nomination..jane the virgin…seriously?! goddamnit. why am i even surprised? same bs every year

  2. Nev says:

    Yayyyy Jen!!!!!

  3. Dani2 says:

    So pleased with the True Detective, Viola and Mark Ruffalo noms! :)

  4. Noel says:

    Poor Tatiana Maslany. Some people get nominated for just about anything they do, and she’s busting her ass continually doing better than almost anyone else, and she doesn’t get nominated.

    A real disappointment.

    • lucy2 says:

      It’s ridiculous she wasn’t recognized. I don’t think there’s anyone on TV that even comes close to watch she’s doing.

    • jess1632 says:

      Yeah she plays 5+ characters better than some people nominated who’ve played the same character for years. Idk if I’m missing something cause she is a serious character actress. Kinda bummed for that snub

      • lucy2 says:

        Not only 5+ characters, but sometimes one of those characters playing one of the other characters, and you can totally see the difference. She’s extraordinary in that role. It’s just too small a show to compete with the push the others get, I think.

    • Mom2two says:

      Agreed. It astounds me that her work gets ignored by awards folk. No one on television is doing what she is doing.

    • Maybe the show isn’t well known? I’ve honestly never even heard of it–not until last year when you guys were lamenting her lack of a nomination.

    • Peppa says:

      Ugh, it’s so annoying. She is amazing on that show. I can’t believe some of the crap people watch and some of the mediocre roles that get nominated.

    • Angie says:

      She’s AMAZING on that show. One of my favorite things are the moments where she plays one character impersonating ANOTHER character. To me that shows just how incredible she is. I got my boyfriend to finally watch it with me and he was astounded.
      Why Tatianna isn’t getting nominations is beyond me.
      People should know about Orphan Black by now.
      At least you’d THINK so.

    • Livan says:

      Tatiana is fantastic!!! I can NOT wait for season 3!!!

  5. GreenBunny says:

    Peter Dinklage was robbed. As was Charles Dance.

  6. Jaderu says:

    Viola! Yes.
    And Martin Freeman yay! Colin woohoo!
    I love it when shows I actually watch get nominated.

  7. Diana says:

    Viola Davis is a goddess. Love everything she stands for, love her story and art.

    • Mrs. Ari Gold says:

      I couldn’t agree more about the snub of Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany. She is a revelation as an actress. I don’t know what they are smoking but no one deserves a nomination more than she does.

    • lana86 says:

      and that dress looks great on her!

    • Peppa says:

      She is the best thing on that show, which is a little uneven right now. I would love her to narrate documentaries because I love her voice.

  8. susie says:

    what about Getting On (hbo)? that show is GOOD!!

  9. doofus says:

    so happy that William H. Macy and Louis CK are nominated!

    love them both and they’re both so talented.

    and Viola Davis is GORGEOUS. that light green is stunning on her.

    oh, and Uzo Adoba – she is AMAZING in her role of Suzanne. also glad to see Ray Donovan, True Detective and House of Cards get nommed, too!

  10. aims says:

    Allison is one of the hardest women in showbiz, and I’m so happy she got noticed. Also glad to see Mark on the list for Normal Heart. That was such a powerful movie.

  11. tifzlan says:

    Jane the Virgin, Gina Rodriguez and Uzo Aduba are SO SO well-deserved!!!

  12. VIOLA DAVIS! I love her.

    I’m not so sure about Jane the Virgin. And by that I mean that none of the guys are hot. The guy who plays as the baby daddy is too metrosexual. All of his clothes are too tight and he’s too pretty. Overall the show is okay.

    And I’m looking forward for the Orange is the New Black comments/discussions. I finally watched it, after you guys discussed it. I love that show!

  13. Farah says:

    They actually nominated a CW show!? Go Jane, The Virgin and Gina Rodriguez! It’s such a cute Ugly Betty type show.

  14. Loopy says:

    I love House of Cards and Homeland so yey, could not get into How to get away with murder.

    • Peppa says:

      It’s very uneven. Viola is the best thing about the whole show. I also really like the young male lead who played the guard who was murdered on Sherlock (I don’t remember his name).

      • Daisy says:

        Alfred Enoch! He was in Harry Potter too — Dean Thomas, one of Harry’s Gryffindor classmates. SUCH a cutie and very talented.

  15. Beth says:

    JAKE GYLLENHAAAAALLLLL! I’m so happy he got a nom.

    P.S. Yay for Pride making it into the Best Comedy/Musical race!

    P.P.S. Anniston strikes again (!).

    • Jaderu says:

      Jake is on a roll isn’t he? I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I hear he’s terrific. Hope he gets the Oscar nod too.

    • Dani2 says:

      I’m really happy about Jake, I wasn’t sure if he would win any of the bigger awards so this is a pleasant surprise for sure, he’s amazing in that film.

  16. Joanne_S says:

    HOW does Downton Abbey get a nom for best drama?! It’s a soap opera with period costumes and fancy british accents, for god’s sake.

  17. Kiddo says:

    Brooklyn Nine Nine. *sniffles*

    • Esthetix says:

      I know. This was such a good season too. No second season slump. *shares tissues*

      • Kiddo says:

        It’s such a hilarious show. There isn’t one character that isn’t good. Andre Braugher as Captain Holt is sublime.

      • lucy2 says:

        I’m bummed too. The whole cast is great but Andre Braugher, Joe Lo Truglio, and Terry Crews just kill it every week, I really love their characters. How Terry didn’t get something for the episode where he was partially under anesthesia, I don’t know.

      • Hawkeye says:

        I need my own box of tissues. Should we start a support group?

      • Kiddo says:

        I will be super-pissed if the show gets canceled due to low audience numbers.

        #stillnotoverfoxcancelingterriers

    • Debbie says:

      Rosa high on cough medicine was one of the funniest things I’ve seen all year. The only thing I feel brings the show down is Jake and amy they have zero chemistry and I just don’t buy the will they won’t they. But the rest of the cast and stories are brilliant.

      • Kiddo says:

        They shelved that storyline for now, but I was feeling it in the first season.

        “Please return your guest pajamas” ..Holt… had me in stitches.

      • Hawkeye says:

        @Kiddo don’t forget the guest slippers!

        @Debbie, I agree about the lack of chemistry. I hope there’s a major Amy storyline coming up because otherwise she’s just a one-dimensional annoyance.

  18. AG-UK says:

    I like Viola Davis but as I am almost at the end of that show, I am just NOT loving it. Was over Claire Danes but now thru most of Homelands she has made a come back for me. Always love Julianne in the Good wife but the new season starts here in Jan/Feb (: Edie Falco can’t do any wrong in my eyes and love love Silicon Valley.

  19. Lindy79 says:

    Downton Abbey…are you kidding me? It’s pretty to look at but nothing bloody happens in it.
    I feel like some cosmic joke is being played on everyone.

    • AG-UK says:

      I don’t know of any of my friends in the UK that watch that show. I could never get in to it. Not even when it was really good season 1/2. How is it still popular??

    • Sixer says:

      I don’t know anyone that watches it. And, indeed, it bled viewers this last season. And is never nominated for any awards of note this side of the Pond. I really don’t understand the American love for it. I think it just plays into the stereotype that Britain is still actually like that.

      • AG-UK says:

        I think you are right. A lot of my friends in the US still watch

      • Kiddo says:

        I could never get into it. It wasn’t quiet enough to be nap-inducing and yet it didn’t move fast enough to be interesting, but was rather SLOWLY antagonizing me.

      • LadySlippers says:

        •Sixer•

        *shocked*

        What do you mean???? Are you trying to say your….NOT like that???

        *wails*

        The first season I adored but since then, it’s been a mixed bag. It’s fun but it’s mindless, time-wasting kinda fun. Lol

      • MtnRunner says:

        D.A. lost me when they lost Matthew…

        Sherlock didn’t deserve a nom for last season. The premier was CRAP and didn’t recover much after that.

      • Peppa says:

        It’s basically a fancy soap opera, and people over here love them some soaps.

    • doofus says:

      “It’s pretty to look at but nothing bloody happens in it.”

      ok, now I actually understand the posts on FB that a friend of mine makes. I don’t watch the show, but he posts spoilers like “Spoiler – Tonight on Downton Abbey, so-and-so opens a window.”

    • lucy2 says:

      I still watch it and sort of passively enjoy it, mostly for the clothes, but it is not worthy of all the awards nominations it gets. It’s like the voters are blinded by the period costumes and accents and automatically think it’s great, even though it’s really not.

      • LadySlippers says:

        •lucy2•

        That’s my take on it too.

      • Peppa says:

        It really is like a fancy soap. Nice to look at, but not necessarily award worthy (especially over Orphan Black). My daughter has a sticker book with little stuffed mice called Mouseton Abbey, and I find it infinitely more enjoyable than the show.

  20. Jessica says:

    Am I the only one who didn’t care for How To Get Away With Murder? The show seems bland and predictable. I called pretty much every “twist” before it happened.

    • Dani2 says:

      Viola IS that show as far as I’m concerned, she’s the reason I started watching and she’s the reason I’m still watching even though the other characters don’t really do it for me.

    • AG-UK says:

      I am not loving it or actually liking it. My problem is I don’t care for ANY of the characters and maybe it’s just her part but she seems miserable all the time and she has a great body but can they make her dresses any tighter she can barely walk around.

    • M.A.F. says:

      I’ve actually stopped watching a few episodes ago.

    • Sixer says:

      I watched episode numero uno and that was it for me. Love Viola but it was just um… cruddy. Sorry.

    • minx says:

      I love Viola but the young law students are painfully bad.

      • lucy2 says:

        Agreed – I wish it was more focused on Viola, those students are somehow both obnoxious and boring. And the writing is beneath Viola’s talents. I wish some great cable show had scooped her up and given her something amazing to work with, but I don’t blame her for taking the network job.

    • delorb says:

      I love it for what its trying to be and because Viola is the complete picture. Tough as nails one minute a huge puddle the next. I had issues with Fargo and True Detective. Fargo was just over the top stupid. I understand suspending disbelief, but should my entire brain be put on hold? Martin Freeman deserves his nomination, but Hanks? No. Not really. IMO.

      I watched True Detective in one block and thank goodness for that, because it moved so slowly. So very slowly. I hit the ff button during the last pivotal scene. Yeah, I was just that bored with the entire thing. Love Michelle, but how she got a nomination for basically sitting at a table, boggles.

    • Mom2two says:

      I really tried to like that show but I just can’t. I feel the other actors are nowhere near the level of Viola Davis, who does carry the show. There is just not enough to it for me to care.

    • tracking says:

      I’m completely with you on this. As much as I want to support Viola Davis, I just can’t with that ridiculous show.

    • Lindy79 says:

      It was worth sticking with it to hear her utter the immortal line

      *spoiler…maybe*

      “why is your penis on a dead girls phone?”

      That and her appearing with no wig or make up, sans eyebrows.
      In true Irish fashion I shall say “Fair f*cks to you Viola!”

    • Josefa says:

      Me either, it’s just too Shonda-like for me. Viola is amazing and everything and good for her but I’m not watching that thing. And it’s painfully inaccurate law-wise.

    • Peppa says:

      I think Viola deserves better. She is the best part of the show. It is just so uneven and most of the young law students are terrible. I really only like the girl who is engaged and lost her ring, and the young guy who played the murdered guard on the last season of Sherlock. I hated the case of the week formula. I will stick to my beloved Law and Order SVU for that.

    • Jessica says:

      Shonda Rimes shows usually start out kind of okay and just get stupider and crazier each season. This one started out stupid and crazy. I so want to love it because of Viola, but I can’t even stand to have it on in the background.

  21. scout says:

    YAY for Fargo nomination.

  22. Nics says:

    SOA robbed. The only show I watched was True Detective and it was flippin wonderfully acted with a great script, don’t watch or like any of the other shows :-/

    • Lindy79 says:

      Would SOA be eligible next year given that season 7 only finished Tuesday?
      Because as flawed as it was, the last few episodes I felt knocked it out of the park.

      I really wish there was categories relating to music in a show because SOA consistently use such amazing music thanks to Bob Thiele Jr. and The White Buffalo

    • FingerBinger says:

      SOA hasn’t been great the last few years ,but Katey Sagal should have been nominated. Her performance is the only thing that’s been consistent with that show.

    • noway says:

      SOA never gets any love and it is kind of joke, as it really has been a great show with some excellent writing and acting. Violent and a bit sexy for tv, but Breaking Bad was violent too and loved by all so I don’t think it is the violence. I can see some people’s complaint about the consistency of the show, although I don’t really agree, but I think most shows have ups and downs and they still get nominated. (Not Breaking Bad but that really is an anomaly)

      Katey Sagal was amazing too, and she only has been nominated for a Golden Globe once for SOA and she won that time. Yet Julianna Marguiles who I do love gets nominated every year, and let’s be honest her part every year of the Good Wife hasn’t been nomination worthy. I understand some of these shows, but some of them you scratch your head and go really?

    • Mom2two says:

      SOA never gets the awards love it deserves. I am not sure what the eligibility for the GG’s are and if that means they will have a shot next year. Honestly, I thought SOA’s final season was much better than this past GoT season and was more worthy of a best drama nod than GoT.
      I think Katey Segal’s Gemma was one of the most complex female characters we’ve had on television, it’s sad to me she won’t be recognized for it.

  23. EC says:

    Really really loved Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Honorourable Woman. Such a fantastic show with great performances, which I was hoping would get recognized.

    Obviously thrilled for Viola and Martin Freeman. Glad to see True Detective getting some love. But who watches Downtown anymore thinking its respectable television? The show doesn’t even take itself very seriously, what all the awards???!

  24. Sixer says:

    Is that The Missing as in the BBC drama? Or is there another The Missing that I’m, well, missing?

    • Lindy79 says:

      Tis the BBC version as far as I’m aware

    • Sixer says:

      I didn’t realise it had got that much traction! Not usually a fan of James Nesbitt, but it is really well made.

      • AG-UK says:

        It’s the finale (in the UK) next week, it’s a bit slow but I like it. He just looks like he has aged so much he can’t be that old. Between that and the Fall all the no happiness on BBC

      • Sixer says:

        I do think it’s time for something jolly (not heartwarming, like Call the Midwife) from the BBC. I think Victoria Wood has something for Christmas but I can’t remember what. The Missing, I think, is the BBC’s answer to Broadchurch – crossed with references to the little McCann girl.

  25. Tippy says:

    Gotham was snubbed.

  26. ReturnoftheMac says:

    I am REALLY over the walking dead being blacked out of all the award shows.

  27. TWINK says:

    Nice to see Dominic West there, loving the affair. It would have been nice if Ruth Wilson had been nominated too, she’s amazing as well. Eta:just noticed she did get a nom, so happy!

  28. Alessio says:

    so now that true detective didnt win anything at the emmys it’s back in the miniseries category? lol also, no julia roberts! and a cw show!

  29. The Original Mia says:

    This is going to be an unpopular opinion, but I’m not surprised Orphan Black didn’t get nominated. I didn’t like the 2nd season. I didn’t think Tatiana was amazing. I thought she was fine. She was robbed in the first season, but this season didn’t have the same oomph from her and the writers that I’ve come to expect.

  30. Sarah says:

    Mad Men did not have a good season. I slugged through it mainly because I know it is coming to an end and I plan to watch the end. Hoping that it goes out strong next summer.

  31. Dani says:

    Sooo glad The Affair got recognized!! Such a great show! And Clive and Liev! Ray Donovan and The Knick don’t get enough credit.

  32. FingerBinger says:

    I’m happy for Viola Davis ,but that show is terrible. Obviously she’s the only good thing about the show. Why does Claire Danes keep getting nominated? Orphan Black is one of the best shows on tv and it’s a shame it’s not being recognized.

    • Dani2 says:

      She is definitely the only good thing about the show, she makes watching Smirky McSmirkerson (Jack Fallahee) bearable.

    • noway says:

      Viola makes that show, and she really is an amazing actress. Still the show is weak, but got better toward the mid season break a bit. Claire Danes is a mystery another one of those continually nominated and wins a lot to boot. After watching the just demise of Mad Men in award land, after some lack luster seasons, we finally see the demise of Modern Family which has been very weak and formulaic to boot lately.

    • Bronzi says:

      Why does Claire Danes get nominated? Freaking fabulous on this 4th season of HOMELAND. She brings it.

  33. Esthetix says:

    A lot of disappointment from this year’s nominations but the inclusion of Silicon Valley was a nice surprise.

  34. bammer says:

    Yay for Uzo! Love her.

  35. lucy2 says:

    It wasn’t it’s strongest season, but I always hope for something for Justified. The performances and writing and on that show is always stellar. Also bummed the Americans didn’t get anything, and Parks & Rec as well. Especially when something like Girls gets in the list.

    • noway says:

      You know it might be FX channel that is getting dissed here as you are right some of these shows perennially get ignored at awards time and it is sad as they deserve some nominations. Wonder who over at FX angered the in crowd in Hollywood.

      • lucy2 says:

        Yup, the only award love they get is in the miniseries categories, for the deserving Fargo, and the mess known as American Horror Story.

  36. Debbie says:

    Umm where is the mindy project and brooklyn 99 and respective members is their cast? No mindy kaling, amy pohler, Andre baugher, adam palley, the actress who plays rosa on 99? What the hell. They have killed it all year bringing human emotion and reality to incredibly hard jokes. Huge snubs!!!

    Also why are no actual comedies nominated for best comedy? Really no mindy?, no 99, no veep? You know shows that tell I don’t know jokes? Not dramas that have funny moments ie oitnb (which I love) but seriously it isn’t a comedy in any way shape or form.

    Really happy for Uzo and viola both are nothing short of brilliant and deserving of all the awards there are.

    • Kiddo says:

      Come join us ^up^ in the Brooklyn 99 support thread. We are deadpanning sorrow in honor of Holt.

      • Debbie says:

        I really am so annoyed about this. I mean 99, mindy, veep and their brilliant casts were snubbed for shows that AREN’T comedies!!! i truly hate it because what these shows and the actors are doing is insanely hard to bring realism to the stories and lines that they say and play and they do it every week. They don’t just through in an off color comedic moment in a real life situation.

    • lucy2 says:

      I was going to say that Veep is a comedy, and then realized it didn’t get nominated. WTF?
      I’d choose Parks & Rec, Brooklyn 99, Veep, Archer, and Mindy for the comedy category. I like laughing in my comedies. Sue me.

      I don’t know which I like more – Capt. Holt’s 70s flashbacks, or his deadpan line readings. “I will NOT peruse.” “You embarrassed yourself in front of Derek Jeter.”

      • Debbie says:

        I know such a novel thought to want to laugh at a comedy but I want to. It would be one thing if they were just comedy shows I didn’t like ie modern family but at least they tell jokes. The ones nominated don’t do that they aren’t comedies. It’s just annoying.

  37. Alec says:

    I honestly don’t like the show How to get away with Murder but I love Viola Davis. I’m not sure how Hollywood works but I hope this nomination leads to bigger things for her. I would go to any movie where she was the lead. She is extremely talented and deserves bigger and better things.

  38. Courtney says:

    Wait just one minute! The second season of Masters of Sex did have its ups and downs but that does not take away from the performances by the actors in the series! Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan were excellent in their performances and should have been nominated even if the show was not. I am so tired of these awards shows missing the mark and the same actresses (for the most part being nominated). It doesn’t allow for other women to be acknowledged at all. Claire Daines really? I just think that Lizzy Caplan deserved some respect. This show is a great show regardless!

  39. serena says:

    I’m so happy Viola Davis is getting so much love! I love her new show! Also I really hope William H. Macy and Mark Ruffalo will win something!
    And why isn’t Peter Dinklage on the list?

  40. silken_floss says:

    Lead Actor in a Drama:
    Clive Owen, The Knick

    No love for our elusive lover Clive?? So happy for his nom, he was incredible in The Knick. I just wish he would write to us more. I miss his erotically soaked love letters to us *sigh*

    • A mascarada says:

      A lot of love for Clive Owen from me. He’s been fenomenal in this first season of The Knick. I know this show is not everybody’s taste, but it has been the best for me in 2014. Electric. Intoxicating :)

  41. Kaboom says:

    Lena Dunham, really? After she confessed molesting her little sister in her book?

    • lucy2 says:

      Ugh I kind of glossed over that. Ah well, somewhere Amy Poehler can take comfort in the fact that her book was a big seller and didn’t cause a huge shit storm of gross, abusive controversy, I guess. The Globes are usually all over the new it girl, but Lena’s reign at that should have been over a while ago.

  42. Josefa says:

    Finn Wittrock and Sarah Paulson deserved those noms for AHS much more than Jessica and Kathy. Love them both, but the twins and Dandy are the real stars there. Sarah made me cry in the last episode.

    • Peppa says:

      Yes to Finn. He is the best part of the season. Jessica is pretty weak this time around and they really don’t need to nominate her every time just because she is the amazing Jessica Lange. Sarah is a phenomenal actress, and I am glad this show has brought her recognition. Kathy holds a soft spot in my heart because a) she is Kathy Bates and b) her Baltimore accent was wonderful. Finn should have been nominated, though, and I’d like to see him in more things (I saw him in Death of a Salesman on Broadway and I always hoped he would break out).

      • Josefa says:

        I love Kathy, too, but I feel this season her character was rather weak. It’s not on her, I just feel Sarah and Finn have much harder characters to play and are doing an amazing job with them. Frances Conroy was brilliant on ep 8, too.

    • Anna says:

      Agreed re: Sarah Paulson and especially Frances Conroy, oh my god, that woman is pure brilliance!!!

  43. Pants says:

    William H. Macy – YES!
    Mark Ruffalo – YES!
    Viola Davis – YES YES YES!

  44. Anastasia Beaverhausen says:

    Yay Silicon Valley! What a nice surprise.
    Tears for Brooklyn nine-nine and Walking Dead. 😭
    Why does Hannibal get no love? Why damnit?
    I’m glad not to see Mad Men.
    Baffled at AHS, Girls and Jane.
    And who still watches Downton?

    • Peppa says:

      The answer to your last question is: my mom.

        And me. LOL But I no longer wait with bated breath for it. They lost me a bit after Season 3. But I still enjoy the actors and the costume porn. I could see it still getting behind-the-scenes noms/wins and some for acting but, yes, as a series itself it is past its prime. Maggie Smith gets ALL the best lines. :)

    Not too happy about Orphan Black, Tatiana Maslany, Finn Wittrock and Peter Dinklage missing from that list. Some of my favorites were nominated, though, so it evens it out a little. Yay to Fargo! Yay to Alan Cumming for the Good Wife. I love me some Eli Gold.

      I totally agree! So happy for Alan Cumming! I just love him to bits and he is awesome in The Good Wife…he doesn’t need dialogue, his facial expressions are priceless!

    Where the heck is Veep? And I was kind of hoping Lisa Kudrow would get a nom for Tge Comeback

    I’m surprised Person Of Interest never gets nominated for these awards, it seems like a good show.

    No love for HANNIBAL? the end of the 2nd seson was possibly one of the best season finales on television i’ve ever seen.

    No Emmy Rossum. Her character had such a difficult season on “Shameless,” and I really thought she would get some recognition.

    Used to love downton- boring now. Sad about Outlander– awards always seem to miss the hot new shows!

    The cast of Hannibal is amazing, the show is like nothing on TV right now. Melissa McBride will break your heart on The Walking Dead. What’s shocking to me is no love for Eva Green in Penny Dreadful she was extraordinary. Also, Dinklage and Pedro Pascal were doing their best work on Game of Thrones. Finally, Tobias Menzies in Outlander will blow your mind. I’m really getting irritated at the same old blah whatever standard shows getting recognized, it’s time to step out of the box and give Fantasy/Horror/Sci-Fi some acknowledgement.
