    I’m pouring out some Pinot Noir for you, Tituss.

  2. Jeff hunter says:

    Congrats to miss janney she deserves it,BTW,matt,if you see Kevin Reilly,ask him about TITANS!jeff

  3. Ron says:

    I love Julia & Veep, really. But the fact that Amy was shut out yet again & can now no longer win an Emmy for one of the greatest TV characters is beyond a crime. The fact that Amy Poehler never once won an Emmy for Leslie Knope will go down as one of the biggest travesties in Emmy history.

  4. MyFairLady says:

    Honestly JLD won again over Amy Poehler…this is ridiculous
    Congratulations to Regina King
    Allison Janney is so overrated in Mom..

    • MyFairLady says:

      Happy for Game of Thrones wins,Viola Davis, Regina King and Jon Frickin Hamm…
      Disappointed by Lena Heady & Amy Poehler snubs
      Seems as if Emmy reign for Modern Family & Big Bang Theory is finally over..

    • misery chick says:

      Alison Janney’s performance in MOM is LEAD, not supporting!!!!!!!

    • flutiefan says:

      Couldn’t agree more. I enjoy Mom. I don’t love it. And she’s certainly not the best thing on TV because of it.
      It’s simply her high standing In the industry that gets her these wins.
      Mayim Bialik deserves at least one, sheesh.

  5. Amber says:

    When laughter/humor is not your primary action/emotion when watching Transparent, how is it a comedy?

    • Will says:

      THIS!! OMFG I rant about it to everyone I know… while I get the significance of Transparent it does NOT make me laugh; it’s not a comedy! A ‘dark dramedy’ at best.

      It was dreadfully boring most of the time and I struggled over the course of 3 months just watch the 10 episodes.

    • Sarah says:

      It makes me wonder if Parks and Rec had been entered as a drama, perhaps it would have won. “A heartwarming tale of a woman who remains hopeful while in the corrupt belly of the government beast. ‘Merica, bitches!”

    • abz says:

      Agreed. And it really isn’t that great of a show. I watched the first season hoping it would get better and I understand the significance of the show, but it just wasn’t good. Jeffrey Tambor did a good job, but the characters were all unlikable. The feel of the show is just gloomy and dreadfully boring. I don’t even want it nominated as a drama which is what it is, let alone the fact that it got an actual nomination as a comedy. It makes no sense.

  6. Diane says:

    Agreeing with those above… JLD is funny enough but Amy Poehler brought to life an amazing character in Leslie Knope. I’d love to see Parks win Best Comedy but that would take a miracle with the voters these days. Poehler really deserved it, especially for having near 20 nominations.

  7. Babybop728 says:

    I knew it wouldn’t be Amy Poehler, but I’m still sad she didn’t win. It’s hard to take these awards seriously when they just continuously pick the same people over and over.

  8. Tahoe Mike says:

    Bessie won best TV Movie? While it is the only one in the category I watched, I found it nearly unwatchable. I watched it on demand, and I think I shut it off and resumed it about three times.

  9. Kevin says:

    AHS is not the best written show on tv, but the acting is and always has been superb. Super bummed that sarah paulson didn’t win for bette/dot. Regina King is great on american crime though, but still when will sarah paulson win?!, She should’ve won one for lana winters too smh

  10. MyFairLady says:

    I’d not heard of a series called Olive Kitterage until tonight…I would have loved for AHS to win something

  11. Robin Zarzana says:

    Allison Janney is an EXCELLENT ACTRESS! She brings the screen to LIFE! CONGRATULATIONS TO ALLISON JANNEY , MOM, and MASTERS OF SEX!
    THANK YOU FOR ENTERTAINING US TWICE WEEKLY WHEN WE ARE LUCKY TO SEE ALLISON JANNEY ON BOTH SHOWS!
    BTW- ALLISON JANNEY PROVES THE KIND OF ACTRESS SHE IS BY HER ABILITY TO ACT IN BOTH COMEDY AND DRAMA!
    AJ YOU ROCK! GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU!

    • wrstlgirl says:

      Allison Janney is that you??

      • Robin Zarzana says:

        I WISH I KNEW ALLISON JANNEY!
        I AM A FAN WHO ENJOYS HER WORK & DETESTS WATCHING HATERS WHO TAKE AWAY OTHERS TALENTS AND HONORS WITH NASTY COMMENTS!
        I JUST HAD TO SPEAK OUT ON THEIR BEHALF!

        • wrstlgirl says:

          Speak softer and chill with the all caps. Please and thank you.

          • Robin Zarzana says:

            I just realized that you thought I was screaming, and for that I apologize. I usually use all capitals because I can barely see due to very poor eyesight. The capital letters seem larger and easier to read.
            Thank you very much for pointing this out to me. I would never want to offend anyone, accidentally or on purpose.
            Thank U Very Much!
            Robin Zarzana

    • MyFairLady says:

      How much is Allison J paying you for this??

  12. Joey says:

    It’s actually scientific fact that the Emmys mean nothing when “You want a good girl but need the bad p****” is nominated for and wins an award for good dramatic writing.

  13. Ron says:

    I don’t want to hijack this board with my grumbles and complaints (like I did above with my frustration over Amy not winning for Parks and Rec). But that Uzo won over Lena is unforgivable. I love Uzo, but she didn’t deserve that Emmy over Lena, not even sort of.

    • Eliza says:

      I agree with both of your posts 100%.

    • MyFairLady says:

      That Emmy had Lena’s name written all over it…

    • Tahoe Mike says:

      I don’t watch OITNB so I can’t say much about that but I watch, and rewatch, every episode of Game Of Thrones. Lena Headey has been consistently great throughout the series, but she was amazing this season.
      ~
      Apparently there are no “Leads” on GOT, but one could fill the supporting categories entirely with the Thrones cast. Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Hannah Murray, Lena Headey, Natalie Dormer, Carice van Houten, Gwendoline Christie, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Kerry Ingram could have fought it out among themselves. The same is true for an even longer list of the men.

    • tvjunkie says:

      But the Emmys needs some diversity, you can’t have all white people winning or we’d never hear the end of it. I’ve never watched Orange, but I assume it went to someone who at least did did good work.

    • flutiefan says:

      Uzo is always good in her role but i was very surprised to see “Winner” next to her name. It’s not award-worthy work. I guess Hollywood likes to pat itself on the back and show they being “awareness” to mental health issues.
      I don’t want GoT but I hear Lena is great.

  14. Angela says:

    Reminded that this is the last time Jon Stewart or “The Colbert Report” were up for an Emmy. Wow. That would’ve been a tough call, since Stewart ended his run as host and TCR ended altogether-that alone would be enough reason for either of them to get an Emmy. But at least Colbert’s got a new hosting gig, so he’s still got chances to win with “The Late Show” down the line. Hopefully Oliver can someday snag a win or two as well.
    In the meantime, congrats to Jon Stewart on his win! A good way to wrap up his time on “The Daily Show”, no doubt :D.
    As for other awards, I’m VERY intrigued to see how the Lead Actress category will pan out. Some tough competition there, for sure.

  15. Boiler says:

    Everytime I see one of these tweets it reminds me why I don’t watch the emmys anymore. These are mostly cable, streaming or non-network winners now. I don’t watch those AND, which isn’t fair, these other options don’t have to ply by the same broadcast rules. I think they should spinoff cable/streaming and let them have their own show

  16. MyFairLady says:

    JON HAMM FINALLY!!

  17. Mr. Tran K says:

    YES! YES! YES! Jon Hamm finally wins an Emmy and he definitely deserves it.

  18. Melissa says:

    Viola Davis defines class.

  19. Will says:

    Tatiana Maslany would have been GREAT! But glad that at least Viola won! Was rooting for Viola, Taraji, and Tatiana.. glad one of those three won it.

  20. Et al. says:

    Everything is so completely boring and expected. Nice for Regina King though. I’ve liked her since 227, and American Crime was excellent.

  21. A says:

    Well, if another show HAD to win Best Comedy besides Modern Family, at least it was Veep. I can live with that.

    • Tom says:

      Or any of the other shows. The Office clone Modern Family isn’t nearly as great as everyone thinks it is

      • flutiefan says:

        It is. It’s a great show. Just because it’s popular and wins awards doesn’t mean it’s not deserving of such.
        It’s so petty to me when people decide they hate something just because it becomes mainstream. SMH.

  22. Beckers0505 says:

    Highlight is that Jon Hamm finally won. However, other than that this in my opinion is one of the worst Emmys ever. I just wanted it over!!!

  23. Tom says:

    O.M.FSM THE OFFICE CLONE MODERN FAMILY DID NOT WIN BEST COMEDY! HOW EVER WILL WE SURVIVE!?

  24. Ray says:

    What a shame that neither Eva Green nor Penny Dreadful were nominated for best actress and drama respectively

  25. Relaxxx says:

    Congratulations to all the winners!

  26. Eric7740 says:

    About time Jon Hamm won!!! Respect!

  27. D says:

    Viola Davis is a brilliant actress, and she richly deserved that Emmy. But Viola, get a grip. Comparing yourself to Harriet Tubman?? Really??

    • Beckers0505 says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Glad I’m not alone…

    • Lucifer says:

      My eyes rolled right out of my head.

    • RealityEngineer says:

      Viola didn’t remotely deserve this. I usually suspend my disbelief when watching shows so well that I tune out the quality of the acting and don’t pay attention to it. Her show this year was one of the rare exceptions where I barely managed to sit through her overacting (along with other poor performances in the show). I was frankly stunned to realize anyone liked her performance, let alone to see her win an award when all the others deserved it more than she did. Another rare exception was Tatiana Maslany who should have won. Her ability to make you forget the same actress is playing multiple characters and her nuanced performances was remarkable, it is one of the rare cases I’ve ever commented on the quality of anyone’s acting. I know people’s tastes vary which I guess explains it. Its just like some people prefer speakers that are accurate, others prefer speakers that boost sound in unnatural ways that they happen to like.

      I’m not sure if some people are so “tone deaf” that they need to be beaten over the head with “ACTING!” or “DRAMA!” or something for things to sink in and go for the performance of someone like Viola Davis or if there were some “experts” that claim she is a good actress and the clueless all go along, or what explains it.

  28. kri says:

    I’m just happy The Americans got some recognition.

  29. Lerbert says:

    Jon Hamm and Regina King! Hooray!!

  30. Diane says:

    Crushed about Poehler losing. Her never winning for Leslie Knope is like Steve Carrell not winning for Michael Scott. On the bright side, we still have the Globes. Sometimes they do a better job.

    • Marissa says:

      Agreed, I was heartbroken last night when they called Julia’s name instead of Amy’s. She deserved it after bringing the amazing character of Leslie Knope to our screens for 7 seasons… it hurt just as much (if not more) then when Steve was snubbed for Michael Scott.

  31. Mr. Tran K says:

    Very happy that Modern Family finally ends its streak thanks to Veep for Outstanding Comedy Series.

  32. TinLV says:

    Overall, I don’t have much quibble with the awards, especially the acting categories, and I heartily agree that Games of Thrones is the best thing on TV.. My only gripe is they gave another Emmy to Julia-Louis Dreyfuss.. do the voters not notice that other very funny women are on the ballots too ? 20 nominations and 6 wins… enough already.

  33. TinLV says:

    I want to say congrats to Regina King. She has been working in television, and has always been good, in comedy and in drama, for almost 30 years. It’s about time she got some recognition for it.

  34. Bear75 says:

    When you think just how many TV shows are currently on the air and yet every year the Emmy’s choose the same tired group of 7 or 8 shows to award everything to.

    For example, I find Modern Family very funny but would it have deserved 6 consecutive Emmy’s? No, it shouldn’t have had 5 in a row with so many other intelligent comedies gracing the screen.

    I’m extremely glad Tatiana Maslany finally got a nod but baffled that when actually put on the radar, she didn’t win – who else could pull off what she’s currently doing?

    It’s way past time to start thinking outside of the (commercial) box Emmy’s!

  35. Amanda says:

    Same crap wins every year. It is all about politically correct shows, and the politically correct person, winning every year. Alan Alda for the Blacklist???? He was on for a total of 5 minutes! What about James Spader? Jane Lynch? for a show that has been on one season? How about Cat Deeley?I have tried to watch a lot of these shows, but found them not to my liking. The Blacklist, Penny Dreadful, Grimm, SYTYCD, The Big Bang Theory, a few of these got a bone thrown their way.
    I could care less who wins these, except in how it proves my theory that the game is rigged.

  36. Thrilled by Jon Hamm, Viola Davis and Regina King’s wins. The rest of it I didn’t care about at all.

  37. rachelle says:

    I’m so annoyed. I watch a lot of FX shows (including the ones I’m gonna mention) and I just gotta ask. What exactly elevates American Horror Story over Sons of Anarchy or Justified? Why is AHS always getting love where the others do not? Sons of Anarchy has had some amazing seasons, including its last. Justified as well. Both shows have had acting that is way above and beyond! And (different network) The Walking Dead has had some amazing episodes as well! There are so many shows on smaller or cable networks that deserve recognition over some of the nominees that I see. The Emmys are so freaking biased that I wished people would stop looking at them with prestige.

    I was very happy with some wins, though (Viola, Regina, Uzo, GoT, Jon Hamm). I am thankful that Modern Family and Big Bang Theory did not win, though. Talk about overrated!

  38. KC says:

    Happy for Allison – well deserved.
    Very happy that Empire didn’t win – that show is soooo overrated.
    Also, way too many cable shows in these award – just not worth watching anymore

    • misery chick says:

      I absolutely adore Allison Janney, but her win for what is basically a LEADING (NOT SUPPORTING!) Emmy from Jane Krakowski who was f’ing brilliant in 30 Rock and continues to be in TUKS…makes me incredibly sad…

      Amy Poehler-heartbreaking.

      Jon Hamm…FINALLY 🙌 But why did Mad Men, THE MOST AMAZINGLY AND SUBTLY ACTED SHOW EVER…WIN ONLY ONE FRICKING ACTING EMMY?!?! TRAVESY.

  39. Pamela Baker says:

    Almost nothing I watch was in the running so it was of no interest whatsoever to me.

  40. flutiefan says:

    I feel the major acting awards were almost all wrong (exceptions: Viola & Jon), sorry. Those were not the best people in their categories. Poehler, Schumer, McKinnon, Baranski, Mendelsohn, Cumming, Bialik, Kudrow, Krakowski, Bowen, literary anyone else in the Lead Comedy Actor race (Transparent shouldn’t be in that category), everyone else in the Supporting Comedy Actor competition (what a wonderful list!)…

    I would love new winners next year. Sad that Peohler and our beloved “Ron Swanson” never got the awards they deserved. And for the love of pete, somebody recognize Mayim Bialik for the brilliant work she has to do opposite the scenery-chewing overacting of Jim Parsons.

  41. Leanne says:

    red carpet best part of emmys. I wish they would break out the HBO and regular TV. I really like Viola Davis the HTGAWM and her speech would have been great if she had left the race issu eout. Why wouldn’t white actors deserve emmys? Should be about the performance regardless of issue and I love Viola Davis, Tahaji, Kerry, Halle but I also like the “other race” as well. Lets get back to the basics and leave the race and politics out of it.

  42. Ethel says:

    Well, if I had HBO et al and did streaming, I supposed I would have seen some of these shows. But, for the poor souls like myself who still watch regular TV and binge watch when series are available on disc, we don’t care about the Emmys. Cable and streaming should not be placed into the same categories are mainstream TV.

  43. Until the people who make the choices wake up and realize that NCIS and The Walking Dead were the 2 highest rated dramas and do something about it, I don’t need to watch. If I want to follow bias and ignorance, I’ll watch politics.
