    The backlash that the Emmys got this year after snubbing Gina Rodriguez reminds me of the backlash Tatiana Maslany recieved in 2013 and 2014. If Jane The Virgin continues it’s critical success, could she finally get in? Next year wont be that competitive in the Comedy Actress race, with Poehler, Kudrow, and Falco out. And there are only two locks to return next year, JLD and Schumer.

    Could she get nominated in the future?

    Well, it’s not quite the same thing cuz no one had much awareness of BBC America as a whole, while people know about CW but just look down on their shows.

    Since the Sag Awards started, the only comedy actress nommed for 2 of Sag/TCA/Globes to not get an Emmy nom is Gina. On the drama side there are 5 actresses with the same issue and most of them are WB actresses (Gellar, Graham, Lahti).

    No. A few people had meltdowns over Rodriguez. Like with Eden Sher every year. Like when The Walking Dead and Shameless got snubbed year after year? With Maslany though, it was literally an event of epic proportions. Last year during the ceremony is a good example.

    I doubt Rodriguez can garner the industry support Maslany has built over the last couple years. And lead comedy actress will remain highly competitive. This was probably her best shot.

    Maslany fans had their “She plays a billion different character” arguments to use and that’s what made them sounded differently on the media’s eye than other annoying fanboys and made her viral, even the people who doesn’t even know her shows name have been wishing for her to snag an Emmy nom because of that reason .Rodriguez is just another young latin woman on a romantic telenovela according to most people. And the Emmy voters who even gave the show a shot and watched the pilot wouldn’t feel differently either. She’s not the first person who’s got critics attention and failed to do the rest and definitely won’t be last. Her only differences than Mindy Kaling and Ilana Glazer is her Golden Globe win.

    I don’t think Gina Rodriguez’s snub is comparable to Maslany’s first two snubs.

    With Maslany’s first year, she was the cool critical darling who not many people had heard of, but the performance was so well-received by the critics and journalists, that the CC and TCA wins seemed like a lock. It was thought she might have a small chance at the Emmys as a passion-pick, but she hadn’t built up enough widespread awareness to really get on the Emmy radar, so her snub wasn’t a shock.

    For her second snub, the critical praise continued and a year later, people had had time to catch up with the show and the buzz surrounding her performance. It was never a sure thing, but there could have been enough passion for it to happen. So when she was snubbed again, people went ape-shit because there was no excuse not to have heard of her. Everyone was talking about “that girl who plays like 7 different characters”. She trended on twitter, and everyone got mad that Emmy voters were yet again in their insular bubble, name-checking the same people, not in tune with the praised performances that year. But then, on the actual telecast her snub was referenced.

    Then in the third year everyone had given up, as it was clear they just weren’t going to vote for a sci-fi show or performance. She didn’t even get TCA or CC noms. Some had lost interest and others said she didn’t even deserve a nomination this year. Then what happens? She gets the nomination. Typical Emmy arbitrariness.

    None of that happened with Rodriguez. Did she even trend on social media? Everyone kind of expected her to be snubbed, due to the nature of Emmy voters name-checking their faves (Falco, JLD, Tomlin); She could have given the best performance of the year in comedy, and it still wouldn’t have been enough to break through. The CW spent a lot of money campainging for her, and it didn’t happen, so I doubt they will spend as much next year.

    No she is not. For the Academy her performance is a been there done that thing, since America Ferrera won for Ugly Betty and this is same kinda telenovela inspired comedy series. However Tatiana Maslany not getting nominated for two years in a row was an international event, everyone from fans to actors on different shows were rooting for her and everyone was disappointed she didn’t get nominated, for Gina it was the same as Ruth Wilson she won a Golden Globe and everybody thought she had a shot while the only reason both of them won was because the HFPA wanted to be the first ones to award to them, who’d have thought they’d be the last ones too. 

    Also eventhough half of the category is leaving next year will be as hard as it was this year. There are still more people that can and should get nominated before her, like Jane Fonda, Ellie Kemper, Kristen Schaal, Melissa McCarthy, Tracee Ellis-Ross, Anna Faris, Constance Wu 

    Also new people will be in contention like Sarah Jessica Parker, Martha Plimpton, (if it goes to comedy) Jamie Lee Curtis, Rashida Jones

    So no she won’t get nominated but at least she’ll get publicity for a few years from this show maybe in the future she can get nominated for another show.

    Scream Queens is a limited series, and what do you mean by “if it goes into comedy”? The Real ONeals is a 100% comedy

    That parenthesis was for Jamie Lee Curtis, Scream Queens will have 4 of its leading characters in its second season as the same characters so I’m not sure how it will be placed. Since the limited series rule clearly states that can not happen.

    Well actually that first part of Malsany did happen – and  more. GIna Rodriguez won the Golden Globe and her show made history by becoming the first CW show to be nominated for Comedy Series. She was pegged by critics (along with Constance Wu) as the “Breakout Star” and everyone expected her to win the Critics Choice – which Schumer took. She was nominated for the TCA which everyone thought Tambor would take but … Schumer again. There was uproar after her snub but probably eclipsed more because of the excitement of Maslany’s. So if anything, she had more going for her than Maslany did her first go-round for a nomination.

    The other two examples don’t apply since this was Rodriguez’s first chance to a nomination. Trending on social media means nothing, if it did “Pretty Little Liars” or “Outlander” would sweep the Emmys and 8/10 Gold Derby experts expected her to be nominated. As a whole we actually had her in 6th place. The CW didn’t spend too much campaigning for her this year, that was mainly CBS. They sent out the Pilot (HUGE mistake when they should have sent the entire season like “Transparent” etc) and raised a few billboards with her Globes speech. If Season 2 is as buzzed/successful as S1 was then I would expect them to do a bit more seeing as how close many thought she was this year and how many open slots there will be next year.

    All that said, it’s a shame she didn’t get in this year. She would have submitted the Pilot and, since everyone by JLD botched their submissions this year, she could have actually pulled off the victory (then again, tapes don’t seem to count for much this year). Next year will probably be a make/break year for her and they’d better send out the entire season or she’ll never make it in.

    Nah, dramedies tend to fizzle out as fast as they heat up and Rodriguez was unable to win either of the critics’ awards, despite being in the easier comedy categories.  Maslany not only won both, but was even said to have been giving the best performance on television.

    I would not qualify sending out the pilot as a mistake.  That is what built the church of Rodriguez last summer press tour after all.  The complete season of Transparent was only five hours, a manageable task compared to the sixteen of Jane the Virgin.
