    I’d like to hear people’s arguments about Veep getting most nominations for a comedy series.
    – Armando Iannucci is gone, and they submitted 3 episodes so that means no Directing nomination.
    – Their writing nomination is on the line because they submitted 3 episodes.
    – Even though people would like to believe another supporting actor is getting nominated it is not happening.
    – They have literally zero chance of getting a guest actor nominated, and they did not even submit anyone for Guest Actress.

    I can’t see how they can overcome all of these obstacles and be the most nominated comedy series. Please enlighten me.

    Kissing Your Sister is definitely getting in for Directing, because it’s pretty obviously the standout.
    Mother is definitely getting in for Writing. Morning After could also happen.
    I stand by Simons getting in for Supporting Actor. He even did a little campaign, which tells me there are people at HBO believing it too.
    Martin Mull could definitely happen for Guest.

    Just curious, but why does everyone think that OJ will do so great in the Creative Arts category? It just doesn’t seem like a show that will do so great in those categories. I think it will be between Roots and Fargo and AHS (sigh) in the creative arts categories

    It has a pretty high ceiling even without the Creative Arts, probably fourteen (program, six writing/directing, two leads, five supporting). Add three editing, casting, cinematography, hair, makeup, sound and you get to twenty-two. Conservatively, it probably gets eleven (no cinematography and only one apiece in writing, directing, editing, supporting).

    Armando Iannucci is gone, and they submitted 3 episodes so that means no Directing nomination.

    Chris Addison won DGA.

    They have literally zero chance of getting a guest actor nominated, and they did not even submit anyone for Guest Actress.

    Literally zero chance for Emmy winner Peter MacNicol? Literally zero chance for character actor Martin Mull in a recurring role after they nominated character actor Gary Cole in a recurring role?

    Chris Addison won DGA.

    So? The only time they were able to get a Directing nomination was when they submitted only 1 episode that was directed by the showrunner, who was leaving the show.

    Literally zero chance for Emmy winner Peter MacNicol? Literally zero chance for character actor Martin Mull in a recurring role after they nominated character actor Gary Cole in a recurring role?

    Yes, that is correct.

    Drama: Game of Thrones

    Best drama series, 4 acting nominations, 2 directing, writing, 3 cinematography and at least a dozen more creative arts Emmys so that would add up to about 23.

    Comedy: Veep

    Best comedy series, Writing, Directing, 4 acting nominations, Casting and a couple more technical Emmys. Ergo, about 11 nominations.

    Limited Series/TV Movie: The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story

    Best limited series, at least 4 or 5 acting nominations, not less, Writing, Directing, Casting and technical Emmys. About 14 or 15.
