I respect anyone who gives Battlestar Galactica an award !


Mindy Project is one of the better new comedy this year. Mindy is Indian so its not racists, is it?


1. JAKE JOHNSON. YES. Thank goodness they got this right. Nick Miller, Nick Miller! 2. Critics obviously don't watch youth programming - because there's lots better than what they nominated. It's like they ignored anything with a superhero title just because it had a superhero title. 3. HOW on this good EARTH did the Mindy Project get nominated for best new show, and HANNIBAL did not!? 4. I love Jon Stewart - but since when is he not in a comedy/variety category?


Once again, Justified gets snubbed.


WHAT ABOUT HANNIBAL AND MADS MIKKELSEN AND HUGH DANCY??? How come it wasn't recognized when all the critics love the show!!!

Spindae 2o

I give it all to Orphan Black. Best new show. Really good.


No Kerry Washington for Scandal? and Maslany for Orphan Black ?? RIP OFF RACIST
