I'm incredibly upset over the fact that Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) didn't receive a nomination for Best Drama Actress; probably the biggest snub of the year. I'm not entirely surprised that she didn't get it ─ Orphan Black is under the science fiction genre ─ but she plays SEVEN different characters on the same show. Someone so talented who can do that and bring life to so many different roles at the same time is someone worthy of recognition.

It's disappointing the panel decided not to give her a nomination but could give Connie Britton a nomination for her role on Nashville. Connie Britton is a talented actress, don't get me wrong, but her character on Nashville (Rayna James) and the material she was given to work with this past season was just so bland. Honestly, if anyone from Nashville should have gotten a nomination it should have been Hayden Panettiere for Best Drama Supporting Actress. Her work as Juliette was some of her best work as an actress yet.

Another snub I'm disappointed about would be for Monica Potter from Parenthood. She brought so much heart and emotion in this season of Parenthood and the storyline for her was just so outstanding that it should be a crime she didn't get recognized. Then again, Parenthood has been going on for five seasons now and the Emmy panel has failed to ever recognize its pure brilliance, so I'm not sure what that show has to do to get some Emmy love.

It's always the same with the Emmys. Rinse and repeat.

Maslany and Potter's snubs are unfortunate but perhaps foreseeable. I love Maslany and hoped she'd be able to break through her show's genre barrier + the flood of new contenders in her field but alas. As for Potter, she had a lot of traction prior to tonight. It's a shame she didn't get in over the likes of Christina Hendricks, Christine Baranski and (the worst offender of them all) Morena Baccarin.

Lotsa crazy snubs and nominations, but Corey Stoll not getting in is BAD BAD BAD.

Glee deserve none of their emmy noms in terms of acting tbh. Jane and Dot have done nothing emmy worthy this season... They do have a nomination for directing though which they submitted "Diva" which imo, was a brilliantly directed episode so they could have a chance and they also have a nomination for the make-up category for "Guilty Pleasures" which idg really.

Why would genre affect one's nomination; why are there only 'drama' and 'comedy'?

So as to give similar shows an opportunity to compete against each other as opposed to the entirety of television. As well as drama/comedy categories, there's also variety, miniseries, reality, animation and I'm probably forgetting a few as well. Judging an episode of Mad Men, for example, against an episode of The Simpsons on craft is a very dicey proposition. It sometimes results in very arbitrary shenanigans: for example, American Horror Story submits itself as a 'miniseries' when it's anything but, and a lot of the comedies nominated (Girls, Enlightened) could easily fit in the Drama category. But it's mostly for good... I think.

Anyhoo, this was sort of what I was expecting, but with a few nice surprises thrown in. First: HOLYJEEZLOUISE LAURA DERN GOT A NOMINATION FOR ENLIGHTENED!!! I didn't think anyone apart from me watched that show and for it to get a nom for Molly Shannon as well was all kinds of great. Second, no writing or directing nominations for Mad Men is verrrrrry interesting, and implies that it's not going to be winning Best Drama Series again this year. Also interesting: the rise of Homeland, especially given how tepidly received that show's second season was (the latter half, mostly). As much as I was disappointed in Maslany not being nominated, it was always going to be Britton and Washington nominated above her: that's disappointing but not surprising.

Laura Dern's one of my favourite nominees this year. I thought she was excellent in Enlightened's stellar second season. I clapped so hard during the nomination announcement ceremony, my hands went numb for a minute or two. I don't know if she can win (Julia Louis-Dreyfus was consistently terrific in Veep, and I think the funniest of the three HBO ladies nominated here), but Dern's dramedic performance is something that really sticks with you. I was hoping against hope to see Luke Wilson in the Supporting race and Mike White in Writing, but Molly Shannon was a delightful surprise too. She proved to be a great foil to high-strung, neurotic Tyler.

Apart from Enlightened, I'm also delighted by the increased support in Veep. I really didn't think the show was going to get any recognition in the acting categories apart from Louis-Dreyfus, so imagine my surprise to see not one, but two additional nominations for Tony Hale and Anna Chlumsky in the supporting categories, both very capable members of Veep's ensemble.

Also, ugh, so awesome to see both Peter Dinklage and Bobby Cannavale nominated together in the same category. Both guys worked together on one of my favourite films The Station Agent and I'd love to see them interact in one way or another during Emmy night. Patinkin and Banks gave fine performances in their respective shows but I loved Cannavale as flamboyant Gyp in Boardwalk Empire. He gets my vote.

Both Parker Posey and David Lynch were robbed of their nominations for Louie. And Corey Stoll. Goddamnit NATAS, you nominate Robin Wright and then just happen to forget all of Stoll's great scenes on House of Cards? Infuriating.

But it doesn't seem to include every genre, like the science fiction mentioned earlier, unless the categories are more inclusive than I expect..?

I'd like to see Breaking Bad go out with a bang and collect some hardware. Best Drama category is stacked though. And it's pretty cool to see some of Netflix's stuff on here - I loved House of Cards, personally. The future, perhaps?

Sci-fi normally falls under drama, but normally doesn't get recognised as much due to biases against the genre. Off the top of my head, Battlestar Galactica received a few Drama nominations back in the day. The same goes for fantasy, for the most part, but Game of Thrones seems to be the exception. Put simply, pretty much the entirety of TV can be nominated but biases in voting normally result in a very narrow selection.
