Default 2013 Emmys

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/t...-list/2550521/

Figured I'd start this thread to see what everyone thought about the nominations this morning. Of all the award shows, I think that the Emmys have gotten it mostly right as of late. However there are always going to be some worthy actors, shows, etc left out so let's hear who you think got left out and who you are glad to see included.

I'll start...

No love for The Americans? That show was awesome, so were Russell and the dude who plays her husband

Boardwalk shut out of Best Drama and best Actor. However I was glad to see Bobby Cannavale get nominated for best supporting. His menacing performance last year was fantastic.

Big Bang? WTF? the show is putrid shit shoveld to the masses. It's not funny. Definitely should have been left out, so should the actors. Replace it with New Girl and add Jake Johnson to the list of best comedic actors.

Really glad to see Jonathan Banks nominated. Wish that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau would have been nominated. He was great as Jamie Lanister and has turned him into a sympathetic character. I also wish that Vincent Kartheiser would have been nominated. His protrayal of Pete this season was spot on. VK is so good at playing a loathesome, jealous, vindictive person that I think he gets overlooked bc he makes the character so unlikable.

Edit - forgot to mention that I was disappointed that Corey Stoll was not nomincated. House of Cards got a lot of nomincations, I find it strange that the finest acting performance on the show went unrecognized.


Anyone else have some thoughts?

I agree with everything you said but I'd just like to add nominations for Timothy Olyphant and Walton Coggins from Justified for the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in a drama series.

I'd also love to see Nick Offerman nominated once for Best Supporting in a Comedy for Parks and Rec.

Have not watched Justified but definitely liked Olyphant in Deadwood.

Love me some Ron Swanson as well.

Woah woah easy on "The Big Bang Theory" man. It is the highest rated Comedy on TV right now, putrid masses? Idk about all that. I find it comical, and apparently so does the rest of America.

House of Cards has been an awesome series. I'm looking forward to seeing season #2 more than any other show in my recent memory.

Big Bang Theory is not funny. My roommates loooove it and DVR it constantly, so it's not like I've only seen it a few times. I just don't get it at all.

Modern Family is not where it used to be but is still good. Same with 30 Rock. My favorite comedy of those listed is Girls by a long shot.

HOUSE OF CARDS SPOILER ALERT

Loved the series and thought it was beautifully filmed, however I lost a little of my fire for the show after Russo was killed.

Also the fact that Willemon (sp?) and Fincher decided to not be beholden to traditional cliff hangers left a little to be desired in the final episode. I also think that the evolution of Zoey Barnes from access hungry insider wannabe to virtuous journalist was a little hurried. However this could be due to the binge watching aspect ofthe show. If the transformation had taken place over a number of weeks via tradition viewing it may have felt more earned and organic. (I do realized that it could be argued that BArnes is still out for herself and that a massive story on the majority whip could be a career-maker for her)
