    After its shocking snubs at the PGA and DGA I doubt it can get a Directing nod. Series seems likely just based on the hype its been deservedly getting.

    Mr. Robot getting a PGA nomination would have been shocking, seeing as it was ineligible.  (PGA uses the same eligibility period as the Emmys.)

    Mr. Robot will do very well at the Emmys, with nominations for series, writing, directing, lead actor, supporting actor, casting, editing and maybe production design, score and sound mixing.

    It will be snubbed in everything, it is just a golden globe winners trend, don’t take it so seriously. ^.-

    Not even Claire Danes, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Taraji P. Henson, Peter Dinklage and Robin Wright managed nominations for their first years eligible at SAG, but Rami Malek did.  It won Best New Series at WGA, beating Better Call Saul and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and following True Detective, House of Cards, Girls, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire and Modern Family.  The industry has demonstrated that they are excited about this show.

    Not Remotely deserved, in my opinion. It is all of this not deserved hype that ruined it for me, I used to think about it as a decent show with 2 very strong competitive episodes in the writing category, but that is about it. Maybe I just can’t stand the fact that something like this can get emmy attention when “The Americans”, “Rectify” and so many, so many other more deserving shows can’t.

    Film is widely recognized as a director’s medium, plus they split the category.

    Well, when My Name is Earl, for example, can win Writing and Directing and not get a Series nom, I can’t think that the awards are set up such that W+D are clearly only behind Series in importance.

    Or Homicide life on the street.

    ^Errrm… Tape system? You don’t have to have overall support to win under the tape system. Writing+Directing noms >>>>>Lead Actress+Sup.Actor+Sup.Actress+Tons of guest nominations. Example: The Good Wife. Only public care about acting categories.

    Btw, the year My Name Is Earl premiered was the year they shifted to blue ribbon panels to select the nominees in Series categories. And those panels even snubbed hugely popular shows like Lost and Desperate Housewives. You can’t compare that to how things go on these days. It had to have a fair amount of support if it got nominated in directing and writing in the first place.
