    Hmm! Am I underestimating black-ish?

    ^^^Yes, and at your own risk. Finally placing “blackish” into Comedy Series with repeat nod for Anderson, writing for “Hope,” and more acting nods (which will be the tougher sell).

    She was snubbed for so long. Let her at least get a nomination, since a win is out of the picture anyway.

    black-ish strikes me a backwards nomination for the Emmys, being a network family sitcom in the age of increasing HBO domination. I am wary of not learning my lesson from New Girl, another network sitcom that saw a lot of critical acclaim and lower Nielsen ratings for its second season. black-ish has less of a base, but it does have a social message.

    black-ish season 1 versus New Girl season 1:
    1 Emmy nomination versus 5 Emmy nominations
    2 guild nominations versus 4 guild nominations
    0 TCA nominations versus 1 TCA nomination
    1 Critics’ nomination versus 4 Critics’ nominations (1 win)
    0 Globe nominations versus 2 Globe nominations

    black-ish season 2 versus New Girl season 2:
    1 TCA nomination versus 2 TCA nominations
    4 Critics’ nominations versus 4 Critics’ nominations
    0 Globe nominations versus 2 Globe nominations

    I was definitely on the “New Girl is not gonna do well, y’all; its real buzz was from the popularity which it’s lost” train. Vindicated.

    Your points are interesting, when I was thinking mostly about how I was betting against Empire S1 due to being a network show (and a soap) and only fell for it because of TCA showering it with noms.
    But this year’s TCAs, 4 different comedies have more noms than Blackish with two of them likely to be mostly critical pushes rather than industry-embraced. We still have zero network shows from this decade up for Drama or Comedy, and only New Girl & Last Man on Earth even getting into multiple major categories…

    And what you’ve neglected to mention in your analysis is that we’re living through a very publicized #OscarsSoWhite #BlackLivesMatter climate right now. No awards body will want to suffer the kind of backlash the Oscars received. The Tonys just historically picked four African-American musical winners for the first time in its 70-year history. I think that Emmy voters will want to recognize diversity nominees when and where they can, and shows like “blackish” exemplify that. True, some Emmy voters will not “care” about this or how racist they’re perceived in general, or just want to acknowledge other shows more, but it’s in the ether regardless. It certainly shouldn’t be ignored at this stage.

    blackish is getting a Comedy Series nomination. Anthony Anderson is getting a Comedy Actor nomination. Tracee Ellis Ross is getting a Comedy Actress nomination.

    We’ll see.

    Tonys were clearly going to reward the musical whose soundtrack is so big it’s had the most weeks in the sales T20 since the 60s. Blackish is…the #4 rated Wednesday ABC family comedy.

    Viola, Taraji, Anthony, Don, Aziz, Rami, Tituss, possibly Tracee (though I’d prefer Constance or Gina), possibly Niecy again, Courtney, Andre, possibly Keegan again, Idris, Cuba, Regina, Anika, Anthony, Sterling, possibly Forest, possibly Gael, Uzo, Kerry, Audra are certainly more than the Oscars’ 0 actors of color this year which was the main thing people looked at, even if they do in fact pass over Blackish for series.
    Especially as the racial group most represented in that list would be black people, which is whom Blackish is about.
    If 20 black actors or so get nominated, I don’t see that many people would be outraged.

    Proportionally to the US population, it would be equitable to have around 9 black actors, 4 Asian actors, and 12 Hispanic actors nominated.

    It doesn’t even seem to have much cachet with the Internet. # of IMDB ratings in thousands for 20 notable ‘comedies’:
    Big Bang 526, MF 241, Silicon 57, Girls 49, Last Man 34, Kimmy 33, (Middle 32,) Master of None 25, Veep 24, Ballers/Mom/(Goldbergs) 15, Broad City/Jane the Virgin 14, Transparent 13, Mozart in the Jungle/Fresh Off the Boat/You’re the Worst 12, Grace and Frankie 11
    Blackish 9
    So it doesn’t have the cool factor, it has only mild critical enthusiasm, its ratings are falling, it has slight guild support, it’s on a major network when no major network show that started this decade has gotten into Drama or Comedy Series…but “they might be scared of being called racist against black people so should vote for it blindly”? Hmm.

    Nowhere once did I say that voters needed or should vote for “blackish” blindly, or not for merit (which I think it’s perfectly deserving). I said that the overall sociopolitical climate at hand is something that shouldn’t be ignored right now. But yes, it remains to be seen how voters respond to it. The comparisons to “New Girl” are especially specious. Not here for your nuisance trolling today.

    Mark Twain — ‘Don’t use a five-dollar word when a fifty-cent word will do.’

    But I guess they can be used in place of facts when need be along with your typical usage of personal shade.

    Pardon me, but why the f**k are people comparing Black-ish, a masterful balance of drama, comedy, and social issues, to New Girl, which seems (although I’ve never actually watched NG, didn’t look very interesting) to be a wholly unremarkable show that NEVER had serious critical acclaim or Awards buzz to the degree Black-ish has received.

    You know, what I don’t think Game of Thrones will be Emmy-nominated this year, because of something to do with Castle, a completely unrelated show that’s nothing like GoT I am oddly and randomly comparing it to. LOL 😉 ;D

    …possibly Tracee (though I’d prefer Constance or Gina)

    Are you implying the TV Academy has only one minority slot for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series?

    black-ish is a network sitcom from the 2010s that got a decent reception from critics and the Emmys for its first season, then was predicted to explode at the Emmys for its second season in the face of soaring critical acclaim and flagging ratings. There is no better analogy than New Girl.
