    What actors or actresses deserve nominations for their work in drama this year, but probably won’t get one. This is my list here: http://smashcutreviews.com/?p=2732

    For me Peter Sarsgaard for The Killing and Rachel Brosnahan for House of Cards are probably at the top.

    Most of those people are good, but hardly any of them deserve nominations (over those who will get them).

    Do you watch The Americans?

    Peter Sarsgaard like you said, and everyone on The Americans (particularly, Rhys and Annet Mahendru).

    I left out Rhys, Mahendru, and Russell because I think they’re still in contention. Maybe less so Mahendru, but I think there is an outside chance she pops up if voters get their heads out of their asses and have an overwhelming love for The Americans. I’m talking about people with pretty much a less than 5% chance of getting in.

    Despite a TCA win, Critics Choice win, and Globe nom, I just don’t see Emmy voters ever going for Tatiana Maslany. But the moment she gets the nomination (the biggest hurdle), she instantly will become my frontrunner. As for now, Robin Wright is deservingly head of the pack.

    Peter Sarsgaard is not going to get a nomination for The Killing, which is pretty sad considering his work in the third season. The Academy has never really latched onto the show, and, unfortunately, I don’t see that changing this year. Also, it pains me to say this, but there’s a chance that Woody Harrelson might not make it in for True Detective. It’s not his fault, but the Drama Lead Actor category is SO crowded this year. I have him in 5th place in my predictions, but I could just the same see a scenario in which he doesn’t make the cut.

    I LOVE “Blue Bloods”. They all are great but Donnie Whalberg and Tom Selleck….WOW.

    Melissa McBride broke my heart on The Walking Dead this season, this show has had very deserving performances that sadly don’t get the attention they deserve.

    Not seeing Melissa McBride (for The Walking Dead) on the list makes me very very sad. She’s perfect as Carol. Her performance were Emmy-worthy since Season 1 to 4 – but in “The Grove” she show something really special. I was in tears!

    DIdn’t it get into Writing, Directing, Lead Actress and Supporting Actress in season one?  The reason the Emmys turned on the show was because its abilility to be so embarrassingly bad.  Saarsgard is hurt by the perception that The Killing is bad  soap opera with a starker tone.  Even with the improved third season it was still not very good.  They have some good to great characters but horrible plotting and even worse dialgoue.  And the red herrings and surprise twists were awfully contived.

    They really just screwed themselves over with the decision to push the reveal to the end of the second season. I think they put too much emphasis on the red herrings in the first season when they should have been focusing a bit more on the characters. Of course, people don’t easily forget, so the third season was doomed from the start.

    I like to think Sarsgaard has a fighting chance. The Killing may not be seen as a good show, but you don’t need to be on a good show to be nominated (See: Kerry Washington).

    Scandal may not be a good show (I’ve never seen it) but it was certainly a highly rated, buzzed about show.  The Killing is not.
