    Great nominees!!! So many deserving shows and actors. In particular, the love for “Fargo,” “Thrones,” “Mr. Robot,” “American Crime Story,” “UnReal,” “The Leftovers,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Veep,” “You’re the Worst,” “Full Frontal,” and “Last Week Tonight” makes me thrilled!

  2. webly3 says:

    The Leftovers should be in Program of the Year (instead of UnReal and should win). Lady Dynamite should be in Achievement in Comedy. American Crime should be in over All the Way. Other than that, these are fairly solid nominees.

    • jakis says:

      And Justin Theroux should be in the individual achievement category for The Leftovers, too. Although I wouldn’t argue with Regina King.

    • mooshki says:

      UnREAL absolutely deserves to be in there. One of the bravest new shows in years.

  3. Wow, love so much of these choices! The Americans, Fargo, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Mr. Robot, American Crime Story, Game of Thrones, The Leftovers, Jessica Jones, Master of None! So fantastic.

    However, I am kind of surprised to see UnReal with SO many noms. I really like the show, but I am not entirely on the awards buzz train for it.

    And so happy that Keri Russell got the individual nom!!

    I wish Jane the Virgin got some noms :(

  4. Marissa L says:

    Excited to see MasterChef Junior getting some recognition! It’s such a fun show to watch, good for all ages and those kids come up with some SERIOUSLY impressive dishes!

  5. Amanda says:

    Why can’t this be televised or live streamed?!?! I want to see Jaime!

  6. mc says:

    Crazy nominations list! You just can’t seem to choose they’re all excellent and brilliant and amazing this year.

  7. James says:

    Nothing for Bates Motel or Penny Dreadful?

  8. dan says:

    Survivor: Second Chance! Didn’t see that one coming. Glad it was recognized by the critics because the Academy doesn’t seem to know that Survivor still exists when it comes to Emmy nominations.

  9. The Beach says:

    Very good slate of nominees but…I Am Cait? seriously?
    And where are Tatiana Maslany and Matthew Rhys?

  10. Guilherme says:

    Crazy Ex-Girlfriend ♥

  11. Gerald says:

    I only watch UnReal.
    So not really interested, but impressed they are individual performances in drama and comedy and don’t separate by gender.

  12. danoregon says:

    Always a great list of nominees that goes out of it’s way to draw attention to overlooked shows. Glad I don’t have to choose.

  13. A fan of TV says:

    What are the qualifications for a Heritage Award nom, and what are the considerations for selecting a winner, out of curiosity? Seems slightly odd to have a category for classics that would normally just be honoured, that’s all, so I’m wondering…

  14. Joey Padron says:

    Happy Mr. Robot, Better Call Saul, Fargo, UnReal, and American Crime Story got nominated!

  15. Matty says:

    They couldn’t throw a single nomination to the final season of The Good Wife?

  16. RJ says:

    Jane the Virgin should have been in a couple of these categories. But I’m happy to see Crazy Ex Girlfriend, The Americans and Fargo here.

  17. M says:

    I like The Americans, but “biggest cultural impact’? Should not have been nominated in that category.

  18. Adrian says:

    Mr. Robot deserves all awards… best show ever
