Also ridiculous that Charlie hunnman is repeatedly overlooked for his work on SOA. If the emmy nomination committee can honestly say that jax teller isn't one of the most complex characters out there and that Charlie hasn't done a fantastic job portraying his change from care free biker to twisted conflicted king than they are clearly not watching the same show I am. I am just sick of the same crap being nominated year after year

Emmy rossum overlooked once again. This is absolutely BS. She is one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood. The show runners are lucky that she clearly doesn't care about being recognized because if she did she would leave the.show and focus on a movie career which I'm sure she would be recognized for. The fact that William h macy gets recognized when frank is a completely intolerable character at this point blows my mind. Nothing against him I mean he plays frank perfectly but I feel like his character has no where near the depth of fionas. And for Joan cusak to get nominated year after year by not making her a series regular so she can be nominated under guesat actress is annoying. Again nothing against her I love her and the character Sheila but the young actors are the focus of the show and they are ignored year after year. Lip should also be getting award show recognition because he is fantastic as well.
again nothin

Ugh...the Emmys. Got some right, got a lot wrong. The technical awards are a fail too.
No cinematography or art direction nod for Hannibal?
No casting nod for Brooklyn Nine-Nine?
No stunt coordination or choreography for Arrow? Are you kidding me?

Of course Tatiana Maslany should've recieved a nomination but I also feel a that The Good Wife and The Americans were snubbed. #CloneClub

No Tatiana Maslany? Is this a joke?

No Tatiana Maslany - RIDICULOUS! She can out-act anyone on this list. When's the last time you saw any of them playing multiple characters (convincingly) in the same show? Grrrr.

These awards are a joke. If you notice, it's always the same people nominated all the time. I'm only happy about Benedict and Martin's nominations. Otherwise, blah.

Ridiculous that Tatiana Maslany of Orphan Black - who plays (at least) 4 very different characters in every episode and whose work has been described by critics as providing a master class in acting, wasn't even nominated. Jordan Gavaris should also have received at least a supporting actor nomination for the same series.

@ Suzanne

I think Jordan is amazing.
