    I’m trying to do my predictions for the nominees this year but I keep feeling that many of the potential nominees don’t have a lot of hype behind them this year, especially in the drama categories. It may just be me, but I feel that the buzz for a lot of shows has either died off, like House of Cards, Homeland, and Modern Family, or never took off in the first place, like Billions, Vinyl, The Path, Mozart in the Jungle, and a slew of others. I just never hear people talking about these shows or making references to them

    Many performances that are considered locks don’t even seem very likely to me. Viola Davis and Taraji P Henson had loads of hype last year, but I feel like HTGAWM and Empire have fallen out of favor greatly now. Am I just imagining things or has the hype for many “frontrunners” only on paper?

    Joanne Froggatt has zero buzz every year but always gets in for Downton Abbey. I wouldn’t read too much into it.

    Maybe Joanne Froggatt does not have buzz around these parts, but I can see how she could have buzz among the people who had nominated her before, with the rape and jail time. But does something like Homeland have buzz among those who voted for it last year? I wonder about that and contenders like Modern Family and Taraji P. Henson.

    Froggatt definitely had buzz two seasons ago when the rape storyline aired while last year she was just off a Golden Globe win for the same stroyline even though it was a different season so I wouldn’t say she had no buzz then either.

    Many shows probably do not have a lot of hype because there are so many shows on, and many people are fawning over shows that are currently on and hot at the moment, like Game of Thrones or Veep. I’m personally hoping that shows like Horace and Pete, which showcases fantastic acting gets recognized.

    You would think that but there are shows that I hear about all year round. Game of Thrones and Veep are obvious choices, but I also keep hearing about shows like The Americans, The Leftovers, Master of None, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, UnReal, etc. These shows are either untested at the Emmys or ignored, but I hear many more rave reviews about Carrie Coon in The Leftovers than Viola Davis in HTGAWM, or Mads Mikkelsen in Hannibal over Bobby Cannavle in Vinyl. With the Internet and the rise of fan culture, you would think the Emmy voters would be paying more attention to shows and performances like these. Hell, isn’t that the reason Tatiana Maslany got in last year?
