    Yes, the season just got released and i know it’s VERY early, but let’s have some fun and predict your Emmy nominations and possible submission tapes for who do you want to see nominated!

    I’ll start by saying that i can see some of them in the Comedy Field and others in Drama.

    Taylor Schilling’s speech during episode 8 (I think) was great, i can totally see it as her submission tape in the Comedy Field.

    Laverne Cox got great things to do this season, episode 12 could be her submission tape in Drama Guest Actress!

    Now give me your opinions, and have fun predicting!

    I don’t understand the need of creating another topic when the official season 3 thread already exists.

    But to answer your question, Natasha Lyonne should be a lock in Guest.

    I think it’s ok to have this thread. Since every episode is released at the same time, people on the official thread are just commenting on whatever and however they want and it’s a mess. You can’t even go there unless you have watched every episode of the season or you’ll get spoiled.

    I think the producers and Netflix need to fight to return to comedy next year, I’m on episode 7 and there’s been nothing dramatic to make the Emmys insist on giving them the Drama placement. Specially when Shameless, a much more dramatic show (if you compare to OITNB) is allowed to be in Comedy.

    I’ve also noticed that Taylor Schilling might as well drop down to supporting and nobody would or should care. It’s become an ensemble and the show is basically dividing every episode evenly between the races of these women (hispanic, black, white) with only the subject of the flashback taking a bit more screentime than the rest. Which is fine by me, I love pretty much every character on the show.

    At this point, episode 7, only Aduba (barely) and Lyonne (maybe Delaria) deserve attention next year. And the show should be nominated for Drama Series only because it deserves a “Series” nomination, not because it deserves a “drama” nomination.

    I don’t think its healthy for the show to keep switching back and forth. 

    Also Taylor should not drop down to supporting because she would have no chance at getting a nomination over the other girls on this show.  At least in the Lead Spot she is the only lead from this show and she can ride the wave of nominations the show could potentially receive in the coming year or years.

    To me Schilling is still pretty much the lead, and i hope they change categories for good, because it would be kind of a joke to be changing every season because one it’s funnier than the last one.

    I don’t mind switching up genres every season. They’re supposed to be judging each season as its own thing. If one season is a comedy then that’s where it should. If the next season is a drama then let it go there.

    I was just going to post this in the Season 3 thread, since I just finished the season (very disappointed in this season, compared to Season’s 1 & 2 being my favorite show for each year).

    The drama/comedy dispute will be very interesting, since this is a much lighter season and could easily compete against other comedies.  For now, let’s just say it stays in Drama.

    Best Drama

    Best Lead Actress in a Drama- Taylor Schilling (8: “Fear, and Other Smells”)
    Taylor didn’t have a strong tape like she did for the Season 2 premiere “Thirsty Bird,” so her comedic USA speech about her panty business is her best moment of the season.

    Best Supporting Actress in a Drama- Taryn Manning (10: “A Tittin’ and a Hairin'”)
    MVP of the season.  Such a heartbreaking episode for Pennsatucky, and we really learn a lot about her, both from the past and present.

    Best Supporting Actress in a Drama- Laverne Cox (12: “Don’t Make Me Come Back There”)
    After being excluded from a lot of Season 2, Sophia is back with a bang in the penultimate episode.  So hard to watch her in a hate crime and be teamed up by both the Mexican and black girls in the prison.

    Best Supporting Actress in a Drama- Laura Prepon (2: “Bed Bugs and Beyond”)
    My favorite character from Season 1, Alex Vause finds out about Piper being the reason she is back in prison and breaks down in the bathroom.  Rarely do you feel bad for her but this is one of those special moments. 

    Best Supporting Actress in a Drama- Uzo Aduba (4: “Finger in the Dyke”)
    I was waiting on Vee to make a surprise return appearance after seeing how upset Crazy Eyes was over her death.  Last year’s finale is a fantastic submission for Aduba that could very likely earn her the win (unless this week’s GOT finale secured it for Lena Headey), but this is the only tape where she really shines in her breakdown in the cafeteria.

    Best Supporting Actres in a Drama- Kate Mulgrew (3: “Empathy Is a Boner Killer”)
      Red is in her element speaking Russian!  She shows her first signs of feelings for Healy in this episode and really shows her mother instict as Nicky is being taken to the SHU.

    Best Supporting Actress in a Drama- Yael Stone (13: “Trust No Bitch”)
    My MVP for Season 2, Yael Stone was sadly forgotten except for some classic one-liners, such as “Too bad, I really liked eating; it was part of my daily routine.”  Her one moment of brilliance in this season is in the finale, where she gets down on one knee to propose to her (virtually unknown?) stranger!  How can she cry on the spot like that!?  Yael amazes me every time she is on screen, but her nomination is very wishful thinking. 

    Best Guest Actor in a Drama- Pablo Schreiber (10: “A Dittin’ and a Hairin'”)
    Pablo shines when his mother visits him in prison as she reveals he is not the father of Daya’s baby.  Five minutes of screentime for the season will probably not garner a nomination, though.

     Best Guest Actor in a Drama- Matt McGorry (2: “Bed Bugs and Beyond”)
    Should he get a nomination just for his Hollaback Girl video?  In all seriousness, he completely disappeared out of nowhere after this episode, and we have no clue where he went, so why reward him for leaving us hanging all season!?

     Best Guest Actress in a Drama- Natasha Lyonne (3: “Empathy Is a Boner Killer”)
    Gone too soon.  Nicky manipulates and backstabs everyone in her way, yet we still feel for her!  All of that credit goes to Lyonne, and her own acceptance of her problems really brings out one of the best moments of a not-so-great season.

     Best Guest Actress in a Drama- Delia Powell (10: “A Tittin’ and a Bruisin'”)
    Hopefully she comes back in Season 4, because she is too good to let go!  “Pornstache’s Mom” has great scenes with Daya and Aleida but really comes full circle when she meets her son in prison to visit her “rapist” psychotic son. 

    Although I wasn’t crazy about this season as I was the last two and am slightly disappointed with Season 3’s overall product, OITNB is still the best ensemble on TV by a mile, and I’m eagerly waiting approx. 51 weeks for Season 4!

    No its not.

    Who got the SAG nomination this year?  It wasn’t Taylor.   So chill it.

    I cried during “Finger in the Dyke” so whoever made me cry in this episode deserves an Emmy.

    I think Cox could be submitted in Guess Actress, how many episodes did she appear this season? I wasn’t counting.

    There’s so much potential for season 3 nominations, in Comedy. People are going to be in for a rude awakening when the show decreases in nominations tallies in Drama next month. What I’m hoping for is that the appeals decision is binding on a season-long basis only, so the show can argue for Comedy placement again next spring. The ruling shouldn’t last forever just because, unless that’s where they want to stay permanently.

    To my understanding since you have to submit yourself for consideration each Emmy season, category placement via appeals can still be made even if your last season was denied placement in the category you wanted. So they should be able to appeal again to go into Comedy for S3 if they’d like (of course, we’re confirming this). Seeing as S3 was definitely a comedy (funnier than the show has ever been) they will hopefully win this time. S2 was no-argument a Drama and is correctly categorized and will be competitive for wins now where as if they were in the Comedy category they’d be shut-out of the big show like they were last year.

    It won’t be competitive for much of anything in Drama this year. But thanks for the confirmation about the appeals process. It shouldn’t have been the show that was scapegoated, and hopefully next year will change that.

    There are pros and cons to it appealing to go comedy vs staying in drama next year. If it stays in drama then Taryn Manning and Natasha Lyonne and Mary Steenburgen will have a better chance of being nominated and/or winning their categories, but a series win will be less likely since season 3 was much funnier than season 2 (not that season 2 wasn’t funny, but anyway).

    It’s Taylor Schilling’s case that I find the most interesting. If she ever wants to get a win for this role, then this year would be the perfect time as she has that terrific season 2 premiere episode and she probably won’t get a tape like that ever again. For season 3, she doesn’t have a lot of options to choose from if she’s in Drama Actress. Maybe episode 2 or 3? Whereas if she’s in Comedy Actress, she could win with episode 8 on the strength of that monologue alone (and she does have some other funny material later in the episode too).
