    The Leftovers’ absence from the Drama Series race is a travesty of international proportions — especially considering there are only four nominees in that category anyway while there are five each in Comedy Series and New Series. Come on, WGA, just admit you messed up and slide The Leftovers right on into that empty slot.

    • jakis says:

      I agree. The Leftovers and Mad Men scored nominations for individual episodes, but not the whole series? And where is Fargo? WGA needs to go back and look again.

      • Courtney says:

        LONG FORM ADAPTED
        Fargo

        Though I agree, why are there only 4 Dramas nominated?

        I love the respect and recognition The Americans gets. If only the Emmys and Golden Globes paid attention. I mean, how could they not at least nominate this show after seeing it on every list, winning all the critic’s awards, etc.

    • Tim says:

      It just proves they don’t watch the Leftovers

    • Gabe says:

      Seriously it’s nonsense that the Leftovers couldn’t have the 5th slot

  2. A says:

    happy that flesh & bone got nominated

  3. How in the HOLY HELL did Game of Thrones get nominated? It was so, so bad this season

  4. dj says:

    Can’t believe Kimmel wasn’t in there.

  5. Nick says:

    “Uno”, great, but what about “Five-o”?

  6. KayCeeCee says:

    black-ish episode, “Rock, Paper, Scissors, Gun” was hilarious and topical. Glad to see it get some notice.

  7. Dave says:

    Nice to see The Americans, Kimmy Schmidt, and Bloodline. Sad that everyone seems to be forgetting about the beautiful final season of Hannibal.

  8. KayCeeCee says:

    Why is it that network shows don’t get as much love as the cable/online shows in these award competitions?

    • Tara17 says:

      Limitless and How to Get Away with Murder were robbed!

    • Jake says:

      Easy. Networks make series to be watched by the masses. Cable/Online shows are made with more “individual care?, love?, passion?”. Any of those work, in the nicest way possible.

      This is like asking, “Why did Birdman beat Transformers 4 at the Oscars last year?”

  9. xx says:

    Eek, POI is having a bad day. Denise Thé and “If-Then-Else” got robbed.

  10. E. says:

    There should be five nominees for best drama. I think the one you are missing is Mad Men.

  11. Nothing for Penny Dreadful? The dialogues were pure poetry more often than not.

  12. Gerri says:

    This list is a joke right?
    Most of the shows are specialty channel programs that I can’t watch and the ones that I do watch I do not think are that good to be receiving nominations.
    Probably the least engaged awards I have seen in a long time.
    Will not be watching this broadcast.
