||It's no surprise to me at all, but Happy Endings was ROBBED.|
|cubsgirl||Jul 19 2012, 09:11 AM Post #3|
||Now surprised by any nominees. But how does Americn Horror Story fit as a mini series?|
|Rick||Jul 19 2012, 09:16 AM Post #4|
So happy for Merritt Wever! After four seasons she finally gets a nomination!
It sure paid off for AHS to submit in the Miniseries categories even though Hatfields & McCoys will probably sweep them
I was not expecting VEEP or Girls to get this much Emmy love.
|Rick||Jul 19 2012, 09:23 AM Post #5|
Because of it's anthology format (new storylines, characters and cast each season) AHS essentially is a miniseries/limited series.
They were eligible for either category though. Smart move IMO
|px780||Jul 19 2012, 10:18 AM Post #6|
Yes it was.
Reading this list pisses me off. It's not that the nominees are bad, necessarily. It just highlights a lot wrong with the Emmy system, imho.
Cable and premium shows shouldn't compete with broadcast, imho. They don't have the same limitations, and they don't have the same...it's tougher to write around commercial breaks, imho.
Veep is not funny, it's just got a good pedigree and I'm wondering how many people actually saw it before nominating it.
Girls is great, but I wouldn't call it a comedy. It's just a half-hour show.
AHS played this game brilliantly. Good for them, that show was fantastic.
Ashley Judd for "Missing." So...now a cancelled show is a miniseries? Bullshit.
And Modern Family proves that they need a Best Cast category.
Cat Deeley for the win.
I hope the casts of the 4-5 shows nominated for things have a great time at the show.
|cubsgirl||Jul 19 2012, 10:36 AM Post #7|
Didn't know that was how AHS worked. I just thought of it like a TV series since I know there is a season 2. Definitely a smart move on their part.
|cubsgirl||Jul 19 2012, 10:46 AM Post #8|
Agree with many of your points. As I was reading the list I did feel like it was the best of cable awards. Network tv can't do the same things that the cable channels can because you pay for cable. Even channels like A&E/Bravo have limitations compared to HBO/Showtime, but A&E/Bravo still have larger boundaries than the networks. But I do think the networks need to think of seasons more like the cable networks.
Short runs (12-15) episodes that run straight through without reruns. I think there are many network shows that would benefit by having a shorter run and not being affected by chucks of reruns or breaks because of other events. Fox shows get in trouble in October due to baseball playoffs, CBS in March with NCAA tournament, etc. There is also a hype when these short run cable shows return because everyone has been missing them.
Also agree with the Best Cast category. There are many shows that work they way they do is because of the cast together. Both shows new and old where there might be a star, but it really worked because the whole cast connected together.

|This is the first year in the history of the Emmys that NBC/CBS/ABC/FOX do not have a Best Drama nominee...pretty shocking.|
|darraholic||Jul 19 2012, 01:02 PM Post #12|
||LOL Network TV is totally getting owned by the Cable shows now.|
|darraholic||Jul 19 2012, 01:03 PM Post #13|
||I'm also shocked Jeff Probst isn't nominated for Best Host. He's won both years it was eligible. I'm glad though, but I hope Phil wins.|
|granolagirl||Jul 19 2012, 02:11 PM Post #14|
Would have loved to see Anna Chlumsky nominated for "Veep." (The first few shows were rocky but the last few were comedy genius, IMO.)
Happy Jared Harris got recognized for "Mad Men" and equally happy that Jessica Pare did not.
|King||Jul 19 2012, 06:05 PM Post #15|
Can't wait for Two and a Half and Mike and Molly NOT to be on anymore.

I watch some pretty damm good television...That best show race is tight. Very happy for Breaking Bad, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, and Downton Abbey. All some of my favorite shows. Dexter had a bad year, so I understand why they didn't make the cut. It would of been nice to see The Walking Dead take Boardwalk Empire's slot. Also, very happy for Girls and Lena. So glad I discovered this show. And the emmy's are going to help this show out so much. I'm pretty sure Girls will win best writing at least. If Girls doesn't win for best comedy, then I'm hoping Modern Family wins again..Also I'm excited for American Horror Story. That was a brilliant move to go Miniseries. They would of been snubbed had they gone drama. I'm hoping for a Jessica Lange win...Also, it's nice to Joan Cusak nominated for Shameless...Wish that show would get recognized for more..
As for snubs...Parks and Recreation had it's best year and really deserved a nomination. Also, wish John Slatery from Mad Men could of been nominated...But Jared Haris had some incredible work to submit and deservingly received a nomination. Also, I don't watch Louie, but it has so much buzz. I'm surprised that show didn't get a best comedy nod.
|Kenny||Jul 20 2012, 08:51 AM Post #17|
I'm thrilled American Horror Story got so many nominations.
Pleasantly surprised about Girls/Lena.
Disappointed Emmy Rossum didn't get a nomination.
Everyone's saying they're surprised The Walking Dead wasn't nominated but last season was pretty bad until the showrunner change so I'm not too upset about it.
Rooting hard for Claire Danes, Lena Dunham, Merritt Wever, Jessica Lange, Denis O'Hare, Homeland and AHS!
|Mason||Jul 20 2012, 08:53 AM Post #18|
||I'm happy about all the Downton Abbey noms, but I think they would have been smarter to submit in the miniseries categories where there's less competition, like AHS did.|

More people watched VEEP than Girls.
I thought VEEP and Girls were both very funny, although in entirely different approaches to humor.
