Thoughts on the 2014 Emmy nominations…in no particular order

HPIM4773

  • Yay Byran Cranston and Kevin Spacy
  • I’m okay with Matthew McConaughey’s nomination only because Woody Harrelson was also nominated. You can’t have that show without both characters and performances (of which Woody wins out on both fronts)…I do think McConaughey is better here than in “Dallas Buyers Club” but still not as good as his co-star or Bryan Cranston.
  • Yay Robin Wright…She is amazing in season two of “House of Cards” and Claire Danes had better not win again!
  • Yay Mark Ruffalo and The Normal Heart!
  • Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange as lead actress for AHS: Coven…Awesome!
  • Yay on Drama Series…Breaking Bad, House of Cards and Game of Thrones
  • Yay for Aaron Paul (the clear favorite for supporting actor in a drama series) and Peter Dinklage (his only competition)
  • Boo no Dean Norris for putting out his best work in the last season of “Breaking Bad”
  • Yay Anna Gun and boo for no Betsy Brandt
  • Lena Headey for Supporting Actress!!
  • Yay Diana Rigg as guest star.
  • Way to go Jane Fonda and Anna Chlumsky.
  • What trio with the AHS: Cove ladies in supporting actress in a mini-series
  • Between “August: Osage County” and “The Normal Heart” it’s the best creative year of Julia Roberts career!
  • Yay Matt Bomer!
  • Between Lena Dunham and Melissa McCarthy there’s not a lot to root for in Lead Actress in a comedy except for the always amazing Julia Louis-Dreyfus
  • Boo for completely ignoring “Looking”—I guess a well-acted, subtle show about relationships just doesn’t add up to quality television
  • Boo for ignoring “The Americans”
  • I’m not sure Kata Mara deserved a guess star nomination. She’s barley in the second season of “House of Cards” but I guess the events surrounding her character do drive the events of the season.
  • Yay Jim Parsons for “The Normal Heart”
  • no, No, NO on ever giving Colin Hanks any kind of critical acclaim. I can’t believe he’s an Emmy nominee. Don’t give him legitimacy. He’s Bryce Dallas Howard without the charisma and talent (and I’m not fan of Bryce Dallas Howard)
  • TRUE DECTETIVE IS NOT REVOLUTIONARY AND IT IS NOT A REGULAR DRAMATIC SERIES. IT IS A MINI-SERIES. IF IT BEATS “ BREAKING BAD”, “HOUSE OF CARDS” OR “GAME OF THRONES” THERE WILL NOT BE ENOUGH NICKLES IN THE WORLD FOR ME TO SPIT!
