Emmy Screening Room: Getting On's Niecy Nash Gets Honest

Loading video...

June 26 — the cutoff date for the 2015 Emmy Awards nomination voting — is upon us! And that’s a source of both great anticipation and nameless dread for those of us obsessed with quality television.

Team TVLine has already brought you our Dream Emmy Ballots in 10 key Emmy races — click here to see our picks! — but we wanted to make one last push on behalf of a few favorites whose work was so outstanding this year that the possibility of a snub makes us want to get in touch with our inner Sons of Anarchy and unleash some unsanctioned justice on the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

With that said, we present the fourteenth of our Emmy Screening Room submissions: Getting On‘s Niecy Nash, for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. We defy you to watch from start to finish and tell us she shouldn’t hear her name called when nominees are announced on July 16.

The setup: Tensions arise when Nurse Didi’s (Nash) half-sister Sherrie (Lateefah Holder) takes a temporary position alongside her at the Billy Barnes Extended Care Unit of Mount Palms Memorial Hospital — leading Didi to reveal some painful memories of their childhood.

Press PLAY below for the full scene, then share your thoughts on whether Nash should/will make the Emmy ballot.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I fell in love with Niecy Nash when she was on Reno 911 and have happily followed her to every project thereafter. She is a very interesting actress and comedienne.
