    Going into the noms, I’d still been thinking it’d be an uphill battle for a non-network comedy to win Series cuz of how the sole one to do so did it 14 years ago. But if MF hadn’t been such a dominant force of being an acclaimed, populist show that marries a traditional comedy framework with some elements that make it feel somewhat ‘edgy,’ we’d have more than one by now. And network comedy support is rapidly dwindling; this year for lead acting there are 5 non-broadcast nominees each category; for guest/supporting/wtg/dir/single-cam editing/casting there are 4 each.

    I was also hung up on how tiny the viewerships for the Emmy-y cable comedies are, but hey, MM/Homeland’s first seasons were pretty small – maybe not quite as much, but still. Comedy Series will be the last major category to get to multiple non-network winners.


    2nd non-network winners in:
    Drama – G Actress 97 Road to Avonlea, Actor 00 Sopranos, Directing/Casting 02 Six Feet Under, S Actress 05 Huff, Editing 07 Dexter, Series/Writing 08 Mad Men, Actress/S Actor 08 Damages, G Actor 09 Rescue Me

    Comedy –  98 Directing Larry Sanders, 04 G Actor Monk, 06 S Actor Entourage, 07 Actor Extras, 09 Actress United States of Tara, 12 Writing Louie & Casting Girls, 13 S Actress Nurse Jackie, 14 G Actress/Editing Orange is the New Black

    Some may be wrong, as in there was a winner I missed previously.
    But it definitely looks like Comedy has been slower to move than Drama, and this would likely be the 4th year in a row that a notable (the last) category gets to multiple non-network winners.
