If the Emmys stole a page from the SAG Awards and gave out trophies for Best Drama Ensemble and Best Comedy Ensemble, which casts would have won Emmys this year?October 19, 2015 at 3:59 pm #364017
Would have? Probably Veep and Game of Thrones as well as Series.
Should have? Veep and Orange Is The New Black. Orange is arguably the best ensemble on television.October 19, 2015 at 6:10 pm #364018
Probably Game of Thrones would win, although I would think Homeland and Empire would be among the top contenders.
OITNB would likely be a front-runner too.
Veep would be the likely winner, and Modern Family would be a contender as well.October 20, 2015 at 4:07 am #364019

Given how ensemble awards are usually treated like best series awards, as well as the popular vote clearly having a big effect this year, Game of Thrones and Veep would have won those awards.October 21, 2015 at 6:09 am #364024
Upstairs Downstairs, L.A. Law, NYPD Blue*, ER*, thirtysomething, Hill Street Blues, The West Wing*, The Sopranos, Lost, Mad Men*, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones would all have at least one Drama win here. I’m tempted to say Boardwalk Empire would have been rewarded here too, but I’m not positive.
The Mary Tyler Moore Show*, The Dick Van Dyke Show, All in the Family, Soap, Taxi*, M*A*S*H*, WKRP in Cincinnati, Cheers*, The Golden Girls, Seinfeld, Frasier, Friends, Ally McBeal*, Sex and the City, Arrested Development, Everybody Loves Raymond, 30 Rock, Modern Family*, and Veep would all have at least one comedy win. Probably Season 1 of OITNB too, this would be the obvious place to reward it.
* = multiple wins.
This year, certainly Game of Thrones, and probably Veep.October 21, 2015 at 12:38 pm #364025
