    It’s that time of the year! Amazing. 
    I’m kinda liking ASC’s choices. These guys never jump on any bandwagon and they NEVER necessarily tick off what’s popular on the air, never, lol.
    Maybe they use blue ribbon panels or something to determine their nominees which could explain their perennial randomness.

    Guilds will be interesting this year. Will SAG be the only big guild which continues to allow OITNB to commit category fraud?

    -DGA rulebook says ”The episode must be entered in the same category as the corresponding series’ most recent filing for the Academy
    of Television Arts and Sciences Primetime Emmy Awards.
    In the event that a new series is entered that has not
    previously filed a category classification with A.T.A.S., the DGA will ask the producers of the new series for the
    category they intend to file with A.T.A.S. ” 

    -And PGA says:
    ”In keeping with the 2015 rule changes promulgated by
    the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, any series where the average episode length is
    approximately thirty (30) minutes is eligible to enter in the episodic comedy category; and any
    series where the average episode length is approximately sixty (60) minutes is eligible to enter in
    the episodic drama category
    . If a comedy or drama series formally petitions the Academy of
    Television Arts & Sciences to consider that series eligible in the alternative category (i.e. a thirty
    (30) minute series submitting as a “drama” and/or a sixty (60) minute series submitting as a
    “comedy”), the Production Company (as defined below) must notify the PGA of any change in the
    categorization of the series by no later than September 1, 2015.”

    I don’t what WGA will do? They are always going their own way and do not give a shit about what anyone says(by rightfully not allowing Fargo to compete in Miniseries last year, excluding Birdman etc.) and they also hate dramedies but will they declare a show as a drama after two years of letting it competing in an another genre, just because Emmys told them to do so?

    Orange actually managed to get nominated in Casting category at the Emmys which were voted by both the producers and casting directors so maybe it still can get nominated in Drama side ahead Better Call Saul and Homeland on PGA and fill that fifth spot. It also got completely shut out across the board at the Emmys (despite of airing their 3rd season just before the voting has started) excluding acting categories but still got nominated for Best Drama. It’s not like there was any other real strong contender that really could replace it, but in the end maybe producers and actors are the only ones who truly cares about this show. Since both of those groups are also known to be less snobby than the rest and always more take heed of public’s voice. And Orange is a show that is more similar to Glee than it is similar to Transparent.

    It has no shot in hell at getting nominated Directors&Writers guild if it indeed competes in Drama.

    My predictions for 3 big guilds. I know they are pretty boring and repetitive and hope to be wrong about all of them lol.

    -The Americans(FX)
    -Better Call Saul(AMC)

    *Mr.Robot is exactly looks like a show they can eat it up if it were to air on HBO or AMC but uggh, they are too snobby to watch anything from USA so they will probably check off the BB sequel one.

    DGA Awards

    Drama Series
    -Vince Gilligan-Better Call Saul”Uno”
    -Lesli Linka Glatter-Homeland ”A Seperation Anxiety”
    -David Nutter-Game of Thrones”Mother’s Mercy”
    -Jeremy Podeswa-Game of Thrones”Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”
    -Matthew Weiner-Mad Men”Person to Person”
    Spoiler:Niels Arden Oplev-Mr.Robot”Pilot”(I’m not gonna write that long title lol)

    (Arrggh. Hardest category to predict. I always add Homeland, because it has the advantage of being the only Emmy series nominee on the air when all the guilds are giving out their awards and very famous directors are working on that show. But Glatter can’t repeat. They also don’t like to give a second award to that years Emmy winner so Nutter is also out. Gilligan and Weiner couldn’t even get nominated for the Emmys despite the lack of competition.
    Hmm. I’d say it’ll be either Podeswa(ugh) because GoT is so cool and both the show and him is still unawarded here OR Weiner because of sentimality and the possibility of voters might feel sorry for Mad Men’s poor showing at the Emmys and want to fix that(a la 30 Rock’s finale).Unlike Emmys, they also previously nominated him in here.)

    Comedy Series
    -Louis C.K-Louie”Sleepover”
    -Mike Judge-Silicon Valley”Two Days of the Condor”
    -Armando Ianucci-Veep”Testimony”

    -Jill Solloway-Transparent”TBD” 
    Spoiler: Beth McCarthy-Miller-Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”Kimmy Goes on a Date!”

    Holy shit!  These are terrific!  Can you imagine if the Emmys are like
    this instead of the same old, same old that we always get?

    • The Americans in drama series!
    • A USA show in drama series: Mr. Robot!
    • A Comedy Central show in comedy series: Broad City!
    • Narcos in drama episode!
    • The best-written drama episode since “Ozymandias”: “International Assassin”!
    • Not sure if Maron is any good, but good for them and good for WGA!

    Dual nominations for The Last Man on Earth and Silicon Valley are expected and appreciated, as is Better Call Saul leading nominations.  Wow, Louie went from winning both comedy series and comedy episode last year to getting snubbed in both this year.  Drat, if only I had known and I could have predicted Veep for writing at the Emmys.  Last Week Tonight has also gone from a win to a snub.  Watch out, Homeland, inertia will not be enough after all, so you are getting booted at the Emmys!

    Had the WGA nominations in the past any influence on the GG nominations?

    No.  With last year’s winners True Detective, Louie and Last Week Tonight out, we are in for a year of new winners.  Also dropped from last year are The Good Wife in series, Orange is the New Black and House of Cards.  No one is going to argue with that.  I see that Fargo is in this year after its snub last year.  Is Master of None in trouble or it it the WGA’s Fargo of 2015?  Interesting that Transparent got in despite not coming out in the December to November eligibility period.  Foul!

    Fargo wasn’t snubbed last year. It wasn’t submitted at all.

    The animation ones. They always pick very weird choices, mostly Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers, nothing really “wrong” with that, but there’s a lot of great animated shows that deserve them even more than the episodes they chose (“Sky Police” and “Walking Big & Tall” I hardly remember). Great job picking BoJack Horseman, but honestly wrong episode.
