    This years nominations are intresting,wish catain irving from sleepy hollow was also nominated.am sure scandal would sweep this year.
    Also wondering why Tika sumter from haves and have nots wasn’t nominated.she’s pretty good in the show
    Yesss at Nicole beharie!!

  3. Nunaya_Bidness says:

    I’m rooting for Regina King to take this one home, I’ve been a fan since 227 and she was so good in Southland. That entire cast didn’t get near the recognition they deserved.

  4. Keni Stone says:

    WHERE IS THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS? DID OWN NOT WANT IN?

  5. grace says:

    After the fantastic performance Sara Ramirez turned in for the Callie centric episode of Grey’s this year, I cannot fathom that she wasn’t given a nod !

  6. Jared says:

    The thing that bugs me about this awards show is they seem to simply JUST pick someone because they happen to be African-american or someone of a different nationality.

    For example, Diahann Carroll from White Collar. I think she was literally in MAYBE 3 scenes the entire Fall 2013 season of this show?! She is a “guest actress” in this series at best, far from a “supporting actress”.

    Just an observation….
