    Out of all the nominees, the most suprising to me is Niecy Nash. She is on a show that has never recieved any Emmy love, or Emmy buzz, or industry buzz at all. She isn’t that well known, she was on Reno 911, which recieved no Emmy love/buzz. And is also starring in the TV Land sitcom The Soul Man, which has also recieved no Emmy buzz/love. She did get a Daytime Emmy for hosting Clean House, an interior design show that ended five years ago, but the Primetime Emmy voters and Daytime Emmy voters aren’t the same people.

    How did this happen?

    It is absolutely the “Jim Carter Shock of the Day.” Even more shocking than Jim Carter being the “Jim Carter” of the day! I don’t know the answer to any of these questions, but I’m glad she managed to pull it off.

    I was elated when The Comeback was returning, and that is when I first even found out about Getting On. It was the second season of a series led by Laurie Metcalf and I had never even heard of it. Insane. So I binged season 1, loved it, then watched each new ep each week along with The Comeback. All three actresses – Nash, Metcalf, and Primetime Emmy nominee for Family Guy, Alex Borstein – were laugh-out-loud, as were the guest stars, especially June Squibb as a woman who says exactly what’s on her mind (think Sophia Petrillo on cable) and Ann Guilbert (AKA Yetta from “The Nanny”).

    I know it’s back for a third and final season, and I’m thrilled HBO is giving it that (something it didn’t even give Mike White and Laura Dern for Enlightened). If this nomination for Niecy Nash has just one non-viewer tune in and become a fan, that in itself is a win. 

    And speaking of wins, Nash has at least two episodes that could give her the win. After Merritt Wever’s heart-attack-inducing win, I count nothing out. …Even though Wever wasn’t up against the almighty Allison Janney.

    Casting directors have also voted for acting categories this year for the second time after 2006. That totally has changed lot of things appearantly(just compare 2006 Emmys to 2005 Emmys and you’ll totally see the difference, though there were some other different rules just used for that year as well)  and that have helped Academy to finally brought freshness in some categories this year including past snubs Tatiana Maslany, Pablo Schreiber, Liev Schreiber, Keegan Michael-Key and of course Niecy Nash to finally get some Emmy love.

    Though, I imagine she should have been some industry support from the acting branch as well to get in to final 8.

    The amazing fact is… that process probably helped Lisa Kudrow for the 2nd time! Its pretty much insane when you think about it, the Academy is doing her a big favor every time she makes her ”Comeback”. Go girl!

    I dont watch the show, so I can’t really don’t know if your right. But if she wins it will go down as one of the most shocking wins ever.

    My favourite nomination of the day! Richly deserved.

    It’s such a great show that hopefully a lot more people will check out now.

    She is a stand-out on Getting On. Very Merritt Wever, very funny.

    I think voters watch anything with HBO labeled on it. They at least give them a shot. The Leftovers looks like it was too polarizing for voters and Togetherness might be too indie for them and I don’t know what it is about Looking. Plus all three are likable gals from hit shows outside of this show.

    I love “Getting On” but this was a shock. If it had been Metcalf I wouldn’t have been as surprised. This show is underrated and hopefully this nod leads to more people watching this show.

    It just goes to show that at the Emmys, there are NO crazy predictions. All
    of a sudden my Hugh Bonneville and Michelle Dockery predictions don’t look so
    bad.

    I’m curious if anyone knows what episode (s?) HBO sent out for consideration of Getting On. Was it one of Nash’s better episodes? Or was this nomination out of pure love for Nash being one of the most consistent supporting comedic actresses of recently with this and Reno 911

    If they voters were watching it live it was right after The Comeback which they clearly watched so it could have just been on that alone

    I wouldn’t say they clearly watched, it only got one nomination for Lisa Kudrow (Which she 100% deserves), but that could have just been based off name recognition or buzz.

    They submitted the 3 last episodes for Emmy Consideration.
    “The 7th Annual Christmas Card Competition” – where she develops a crush on Dr Owens, and she totally owns the episode with the whole investigation into the explicit photograph which accidentally makes it into the Christmas card competition. Her one liners are classic! “Miss Birdie, that’s your little pussy”.
    I think that is her epsiode submission.

    “The Revolving Door Admit” , she faces off with her sister who comes to help out at the hospital. Not funny, but a very sweet and sympathetic episode for her Her facial expressions are comedic GOLD.. 

    “Doctor Death” – where she faces off with Dr Jenna to to collect what she is owed. All kinds of crazy. Running around, helping Dawn, helping Dr Jenna.

    She deserves this nomination. She deserved it for Season 1, and so much more for season 2.

    I mean yeah it would have been nice for it to score writing or directing or series but no one was really counting on them
