Okay let’s say you get three wishes that will determine what gets nominated at this years Emmys, what would they be? The only rule is that the actor/show/episode has to be on the ballot so you can’t wish for “Hitting the Fan” to miraculously pick up a nomination.
1. Amy Poehler for Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series for Broad City: The Last Supper
2. Emily Bett Rickards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Arrow
3. The Legend of Korra for Outstanding Animated ProgramJune 11, 2014 at 5:39 pm #319281
1. Category-confusion doesn’t hurt Orange is the New Black. Seeing it in Comedy Series, Lead Actress (Taylor Schilling), Supporting Actress (Kate Mulgrew), Guest Actress (Uzo Aduba), Writing and Directing would be lovely. I’m only speaking in terms of nominations because my hope for wins is reserved for Veep.
2. The Emmys welcome back The Good Wife in Series, Lead Actress, Supporting Actor (Josh Charles), and Writing, plus a nomination in Directing (a category in which it’s never been nominated).
3. Dean Norris gets in for Supporting Actor. I think he’s safe for the nom, but I’ll be relieved to actually see it.June 11, 2014 at 5:50 pm #319282
Funnily enough, almost all of my wishes involve actresses, so its so hard to narrow it down:
– Emmy Rossum for comedy actress
– Jennifer Carpenter for drama supporting actress
– Hannibal for drama series
Those are probably the definite choices, but I keep going back and ford between them and:
– Vera Farmiga for drama actress, instead of Rossum
– Melissa McBride for drama supporting actress, instead of Carpenter
– The Walking Dead for drama series, instead of Hannibal
Those are the never gonna happen wishes. As for a realistic wish, I´ll just say one:
7 drama series nominees (which according to my predictions would include The Good Wife and Masters Of Sex)…June 11, 2014 at 6:14 pm #319283
– Frances Conroy manages to sneak into Supporting Actress in a Miniseries/Movie for her delightfully campy work in Coven. A true standout supporting performance.
– Modern Family underperforms in the nominations, especially in Supporting Actor, to make room for some guys from Veep and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. And also to signal that they are finally done awarding it Comedy Series.
– Survivor gets back into Reality Competition Program because it richly deserves a nomination after two outstanding seasons. Can we please just not nominate Dancing With the Stars for another year? I’m sure they’ll be fine. Survivor deserves it.June 11, 2014 at 6:16 pm #319284
1. Pedro Pascal gets into Drama Guest Actor for Game of Thrones

1. Arrow for Stunt Coordination
2. At least one of the supporting/Guest actresses gets a nomination for Orange is the New Black
3. Veep gets a writing nomination.June 11, 2014 at 7:07 pm #319286
1. Mad Men recovers all the momentum it lost recently.
2. Tatiana Maslany
3. Sophie Turner is GoT’s female nomineeJune 11, 2014 at 7:26 pm #319287
1. Jon Hamm et. al get Emmys for their final run on Mad Men.
2. Animated shows get into REAL categories.
3. True Detective would go back into Miniseries where it belongs (it’s an anthology show).June 11, 2014 at 7:28 pm #319288
1. William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum
2. Game of Thrones leads the pack with the most acting nominations (Charles Dance, Lena Headey, and Pedro Pascal are added)
3. Survivor and Jeff ProbstJune 11, 2014 at 7:43 pm #319289
1) Timothy Simons getting in for Veep
2) Game of Thrones doing well with its acting nominees (particularly Pedro Pascal). Also, someone takes over for Emilia Clarke in the Supporting Actress category (who I like in general, but is probably my 4th or 5th favorite female from this season after Turner, Headey, Williams, and maybe Dormer).
3) Josh Charles getting in for The Good Wife.June 11, 2014 at 8:28 pm #319290
