    The nominations for the PGA Awards will be announced on November 28.

    They have the same eligibility period as the Emmys (June 1, 2011 – May 31, 2012). The only exception is the Longform category where the eligibility period is the calendar year and nominations will be announced on January 3.

    In drama series, they will probably nominate five of the six recent Emmy nominees. “Homeland” and “Mad Men” seem to be locks. “Breaking Bad” is still very well liked and “Boardwalk Empire” actually won here last year, so they should be safe. I guess the final slot is between “Downton Abbey” and “Game of Thrones”.

    Comedy series is more complicated. “Modern Family” is an utter lock. “30 Rock” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” always get nominated but voters could grow tired. “The Big Bang Theory” and “Parks and Recreation” were nominated for the first time last year but could miss out because of increased competition. The former is a huge hit but also has its detractors. The latter has low ratings and was surprisingly snubbed at the Emmys. Emmy nominees “Girls” and “Veep” could show up here or even “Louie” since the buzz around Louis C.K. keeps growing. These shows often earn mixed reactions, so the divisive response could help a mainstream hit like “New Girl” (even though its popularity has been fading).

    I think both HBO shows get in, and “Downton” will be surprisngly snubbed.

    I hate to say it, but my money is on Downton Abbey getting snubbed.  I mean, Lost was nominated for all six seasons by the PGA, so Game of Thrones should be able to get back in, right?

    Also worth noting is that Dexter has been nominated by the PGA for all five of its eligible seasons, whereas it was snubbed by the Emmys in its first year.  Yeah, its sixth season should be snubbed, but its fifth season also should have been snubbed and they still nominated it.  Could they nominate the sixth season, seeing as voting is happening concurrently with the broadcast of the terrific return to form that is the seventh season of Dexter?  More so than at the Emmys, Dexter cannot be counted out for a nomination.  This is a seven-horse race with five slots.

    Comedy series will be Modern Family, 30 Rock, Girls, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Parks and Recreation.

    You make an excellent point, but I think “Dexter” isn’t really in the running. Last year there wasn’t a lot of competition, so it had an easy path to a nomination. This year, “Breaking Bad” is back and we have new contenders like “Homeland” and “Downton Abbey”.

    I’m so glad “Downton Abbey” got nominated. I’m also happy for “The Big Bang Theory” even though it’s not a favorite on Gold Derby.

    So in drama series, they nominated five of the six Emmy nominees, leaving out “Boardwalk Empire”. That’s a major surprise because the show won the PGA Award last year.

    In comedy series, they nominated four of the six Emmy nominees. Instead of “Girls” and “Veep”, the PGA chose “Louie”. It’s interesting that “Parks and Recreation” was dropped after one nomination, similar to what happened at the Emmys.

    Not that I’m complaining, but I wonder why “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” hasn’t been embraced by the PGA.

    And another award show where “The Voice” is in, “American Idol” is out.

    The reason why the Daily Show hasn’t been embraced by the PGA, according to Entertainment Weekly, is because the show has never submitted itself in the category.

    YOU GET GO GET THAT WIN LOUIE! FUCK YOU LETTERMAN!

    And this proves those nominations “Parks” got for series were a fluke and that show was never really that embraced to begin with. I didn’t want this to be true, but it seems quite evident now.   

    Also, hopefully this means “Louie” gets in Comedy Series next year. It seems to be widely regarded, and hopefully it probably just had the opposite reaction to what happened to “Parks”, in that it was a fluke that it wasn’t nominated for Series this year.

    Boring, predictable nominations, but not a disaster either. Also…just to remind everyone, I think the PGA’s work the same schedule as the Emmys. So technically Breaking Bad was nominated for their 4th season, not their 5th for example. I don’t want anyone here saying that The Mindy Project was snubbed or something!

    I’m hoping Breaking Bad will win for Drama, and Louie or 30 Rock will win for comedy.

    Breaking Bad and Louie.  Homeland is a good show, but there are way too many WTF moments.

    It’s a quote from a episode of “Louie”. He goes to the theater where Letterman does his show and just screams “Fuck you, Letterman” after losing out as replacement for him.
