    A consagrada série The Walking Dead deveria está entre as suas apostas. Melissa McBride (Carol) fez um trabalho incrível no que concerne a drama, além de que o lado humano é bastante enfocando na série. Ela demonstrou em sua última temporada que o programa não é apenas efeitos especiais e zumbis e, sim, as mudanças e atitudes que se tomam em meio ao caos, e os atores deram vida aos seus personagens de forma muito digna mostrando a verdadeira luta pela sobrevivência. Seriamente vou procurar outras apostas que não sejam somente as tão batidas Breaking Bad, Homeland, Game of Thrones... Se estas forem os verdadeiros indícios do que vem para o Emmy, então ele será pior que o Critic's Choice Awards.

    It seems people are also forgetting about Law and Order: SVU and its amazing actors and actresses. The show brings the huge and rarely talked about topic of rape and sexual assult
    to light. The acting shown in season 15 was phenomenal and will only get better in season 16. It deserves recognition for being able to stay on this long and still come up with new ideas and captivate people across the world, which few shows are able to do. The Benson/Lewis saga was amazing and really showed off the full potential of Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson) as an actress and along with her amazing acting, she even directed one of the episodes, which turned out to be great! It's getting better and better thanks to the amazing writers, producers, and actors/actresses and I have no doubt it will continue to stay on for a couple more years.

    What happened to the wonderful Hollow Crown series and why on earth is Sherlock on the list when it was the worst of the three series and not nearly as good as other shows which have been left off. The same goes for best actor. Martin Freeman offered us something new in Fargo, Chiwetel Ejiofor was epic in Dancing on the Edge as was Matthew Goode whilst any of the lead actors in the Hollow Crown deserved a nod. With Benedict we just got more of the same.

    I can't believe that Son's of Anarchy are not on your radar

    No nomination for NBC's Hannibal? :( That's just sad.

    comedy i think Modern Family still holds it

    Drama I think The Good Wife will win - season 5 was the best one

    Why doesn't anyone ever even mention AMC's The Walking Dead as an award contender? The performances on that show by Andrew Lincoln especially have been outstanding. It's the most watched show on television and yet not even a mention for a possible nomination. All the other shows mentioned are great with wonderful actors but I have to say that The Walking Dead cast can hold their own against any of them. I don't see how the awards shows can be taken seriously if they refuse to acknowledge a show or cast simply because they frown upon its premise. Zombies might seem silly but The Walking Dead isn't. Open your eyes, critics.

    I disagree completely. The Walking Dead could've been a great show, but its not. The show is about freaking zombies, but there's no optimism, happiness, or humor in any direction. Have a little fun with it, for Christ's sake! I mean, hell - even the far superior Breaking Bad had humor throughout. This show tries so desperately to be the deepest, darkest drama on TV, but its a laughable attempt at what is - given its subject matter - an impossible goal. It hasn't earned its darkness.

    And the bad writing, pacing issues, and laughable dialogue aren't helping.

    Yeah so true. Totaly agree. Emmys critics decisions are so stupid.

  • Marcio | May 26, 2014 11:09 AMReply

    I think Glee will be nominated for 3 Emmys:
    - Jane Lynch will be nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series;
    - Kristin Chenoweth will be nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series;
    - June Squibb will be nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.

    Hey Ben and Peter, just curious. Why is Orange is the New Black not considered a drama? I've never quite understood how it has come to acquire that label on the review circuit. To me, it seems the show's dramatic elements are much more present than its comedic and it seems out of place in the company of the other more obtuse presentations of humor on your comedy predictions.

  • miranda | May 5, 2014 10:43 AM

    How you or I consider a genre is one thing, but the Emmy rules leave it up to the networks to interpret the rules how they see fit for their shows and talent. There is no set-in-stone rule for how 'dramedies' should submit themselves.
    Netflix announced Orange is the New Black would be submitted as a Comedy, which makes total sense because this is where they stand a better chance.
    After years of submitting as a Drama, Shameless will also be submitting as a Comedy this time around. It always felt like a Comedy to me.
