Do you think Mr. Carson (I mean Jim Carter) has a shot at an Emmy award?
Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B.
The 2015 Emmy Nominations were announced morning of July 16 in Los Angeles presented by Uzo Aduba and Cat Deeley. They increased the number of nominees for best drama and comedy series from six to seven, ensuring at least one show that hadn’t been nominated before would surface.
Hamm will face-off against Kyle Chandler for his portrayal of the detective John Rayburn in the Netflix’s series Bloodline and Bob Odenkirk for his role as Jimmy McGill in AMC’s Better Call Saul, the prequel to that network’s Breaking Bad.
The CW’s Jane the Virgin, which delivered a Golden Globe for lead actress Gina Rodriguez in January, was also snubbed in the key categories.
“Like every year, our shows find themselves as top contenders of the Emmys which only reflects the quality and excellence of the content we curate on our channels”. It is fabulous to see the great Lily Tomlin get recognized for Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie“.
“This is what it’s supposed to be like”.
“Any light of recognition and acceptance by the academy and the community is so important for our show because we are still the little engine that could”, Tambor said. However, two-time nominee Kerry Washington of “Scandal” was left out this year. “I love being part of the American tradition of late night comedy…that people watch the next day on their phone after a brief yogurt commercial”. “Game of Thrones” repeated as the top nominee, with 24 bids. If TV, as the Academy says, dominates cultural discussion, then “Empire” should have scored points for being one of the most talked about shows of the year.
For the broadcast networks, this year’s nominations proved disappointing once again.
“The Good Wife” got snubbed yet again. Take, for example, the best actress drama category, where Emmy made history by nominating two black women – Viola Davis (“How to Get Away With Murder”) and Taraji P. Henson (“Empire“). In Emmy world, just acknowledging new shows In the major categories signals that a few voters were listening to the pop culture-sphere this year.
On the other, “Downton Abbey” received a nomination for best drama – and “Empire”, the breakout hit of last season, did not. Colbert’s show won in 2014.
While “Orange Is The New Black” earned a disappointing 4 nominations for its second season, the one-hour dramedy did manage to earn a nod for Best Drama, after a change in Emmy rules knocked it out the Best Comedy category, which is now restricted to half-hour shows. ABC’s Modern Family and HBO’s Veep remain comedy favorites.
Andy Samberg (of the American comedy group The Lonely Island) will host the 2015 Emmys, which take place on Sunday 20 September.
