    As usual, a dearth of women: only 3 out of 12 individual achievement nominees (Amy Poehler, Margo Martindale, Julianna Margulies).

     

    Happy to see “Louie” nominated for individual achievement and comedy. Louis CK, as writer, director, producer, and star of the show, absolutely deserves to win. I can’t imagine a more impressive individual achievement on TV in the last year.

    The one thing I can’t understand about this association is how they can possibly compare what Amy Poehler does with what Jon Stewart does or what Louis C.K. does. Pairing up a director-writer-actor-producer with a satire host or an actress-writer…. it feels like a stretch that they are all shoved underneath the umbrella of “achievement in comedy.”

    Judging performers is apples and oranges even under the best of circumstances (or “achievements” in this case, which often blend acting achievements with other achievements). I just wish the TCA would acknowledge that woman occasionally make television too.

    Can someone explain to me how Restrepo is eligible for TV awards when it was nominated for an Oscar earlier this year?  I had assumed that its Oscar-qualifying theatrical run would have forfeited television awards-eligibility…
