    I’m an Emmy voter. Just now I was voting for Best TV Movie and was SHOCKED to see that “Sharknado 3” was actually submitted! Remember: the Emmys are the only major Hollywood award that costs $$$ to enter. And it costs a LOT to enter in the program categories — upward of $600. Why did the hell did someone bother wasting that money? HA!

    What are your picks for most ridiculous Emmy submissions? Whether the entry is utterly unworthy of serious awards attention or an entry that has absolutely ZERO chance of snagging a nom?

    Oh, and by the way, I qualify as an Emmy voter because I used to produce a weekly series on TV Land called “Top 10” and I received producer credit for some Oscar and Emmy specials on other cable channels. I also qualify, I guess, because of my web credentials. I’m also a voter for SAG Awards and Critics’ Choice. I know, I know — all of this might be a conflict of interest, but I’ve totally rationalized it and may explain that another time.

    2) Matt Bomer entered in Lead Miniseries/Movie Actor
    3) Candace Cameron entered in Lead COmedy Actress for Fuller House
    4) Any of the CSI/NCIS/Criminal Minds actors entered…LOL!!! Have they ever watched themselves??

    Dr. Ken mostly, and the fact that they are actually kinda campaigning for it (seen a couple of FYC ads on Gold Derby) is a joke

    Was Marcus serious about liking it in that slugfest or was he trolling?

    Fuller House in general

    Joshua Jackson and Ice-T in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for their cameos.

    Arrow for Directing, mediocre-at-best season even the fans didn’t seem to like, although I heard from a friend who used to watch the show but quit after this season, the episode “Canary Cry” they submitted was actually one of their least-awful ones.

    Grandfathered for the Pilot, the reception was lukewarm, Emmys aren’t happening for either FH or this show, sorry John Stamos.

    Also, Daredevil and its spectacularly horrible 2nd season (IN MY OPINION!) is not getting in anywhere for writing or directing, let alone Series, if its universally beloved, instant classic 1st season got shut out of those categories. Maybe Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk will get nominated as a completely deserved I.O.U. For last year’s atrocious snub, seeing how both his name recognition, the ABC Theory (D for D’Onofrio), and presumably less competition in Guest Actor could work to his advantage.

    I THINK he was serious, but so what if he did? We all have our own tastes, heck I know a guy who really liked last year’s Fant4stic movie!

    Marg Helgenberger got two nominations for CSI and the whole cast won SAG for best ensemble.

    Oh, okay. Just sharing what I thought. Out of curiousity, is there any TV show you’re rooting for at the Emmys that no one seems to like except for you? 🙂

    Agreed.

    However, I also agree with Pete Hammond’s prediction that J-Lo’s Shades of Blue co-star Ray Liotta will receive a nomination as Best Actor in a Drama Series.

    Nearly the entire cast of Heroes Reborn being entered in the supporting actor/actress in a limited series categories. The original series had a grand total of one acting nomination (Masi Oka), and that came in the first season.
