I continue to think it's bullshit for cable and network tv to compete, and now Netflix. Network tv has limits. They have different budgets and financial constraints. They have to build a show around commercial breaks. It's a totally different form, imho.

That said, I like most of the nominees. I wish they'd give a shout out to one of the kids on The Vampire Diaries, though, because some of them are frickin' awesome (if only the characters could swear and get naked!).

Was this last season of "Game of Thrones" the eligible one? I'm not clear on cutoff dates.

I think they jumped on Netflix exactly because they're new, because they have brand-name actors, and because it'd be embarrassing for the Emmys if they didn't grab hold of that big new format. Sort of how the Grammys has shifted over the past few years after getting flack for primarily rewarding older acts.

For me the difference between network and basic cable is content. People want realism, it seems to me, to define something as quality/Emmy-worthy. Networks can't even use realistic language with the occasional swear word. Basic cable can. HBO sure can. I just don't like them competing, I guess is what it comes down to.
