    YAAAASSSS this is good. I know it’s supposed to get more dramatic in season 2 but I do still think it’s light-hearted enough to be in comedy. 

    As for the others, Lewis in lead is just LOL but Janney in lead is a somewhat disappointing move. She would’ve had a great shot at winning in Supporting and now she won’t have much of a shot against JLD. She also might kick out Faris since she’s the more beloved Emmy star.

    Lead Actress in a comedy has suddenly gotten more interesting. Somebody stop JLD!

    ‘Orange’ is not a comedy. It’s just not. But Netflix has really fucked up its chances with this flip-flopping. If they said from the get-go it was going comedy and stuck to their guns it would have done well at the Globes and be in a position to perhaps win the Comedy Series Emmy. Don’t see it happening now, especially if season 2 is as heavy as has been rumored. 

    We gonna have to put a hold on this Breaking Bad sweep if ‘True’ goes drama series (not that it was sweeping anyhow. If only Robin Wright would go supporting and really F it up for BB).

    Orange Is the New Black going comedy –> this hurts Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s chances. No nomination for you. Parks and Recreation is also toast.

    Damian Lewis going lead –> nothing new

    Allison Janney going lead –> noooooo, go supporting.

    OINTB vs.Modern Family (vs. Veep?)
    Louis-Dreyfus vs. Schilling
    True Detective vs. Breaking Bad vs. House of Cards
    McConaughey vs. Cranston vs. Spacey (vs. Harrelson?)

    Damn this is gonna be FUN

    I don’t think TD will go Series. 

    For one thing, Miniseries/TV Movie is kinda a barren wasteland.

    House of Cards is not a contender to win Series.

    Janney probably has more of chance at winning than Schilling.

    Ooh. I missed the True Detective news. Breaking Bad’s lone win would be Anna Gunn.

    Surprising, but not shocking. The biggest surprise to me is the OITNB move, especially after Schilling got a Globe nod in the competitive drama actress category. I always suspected True Detective would go drama, as HBO doesn’t play by other network “games” and didn’t even submit Luck in longform in a weak longform and strong drama year. Janney’s pretty much been a co-lead, so this feels more genuine (although actors can still override network placement decisions, right?). And Lewis might as well stay lead and see what happens, as I believe some of his episodes would warrant the placement, even if the entirety of the season does not.

    I’m not holding my breath for Orange Is The New Black. I mean, are we even sure that the Emmys will embrace it? Yes, they threw House Of Cards a bone by giving it a few wins (I’m still attributing the Directing win mostly to David Fincher, though), but the gross underperformance of Arrested Development last year is still vivid.

    Hour long dramedy takes down long time champion, please let history repeat itself.
