Yeah, Mr. Robot had an amazing week. Having the buzz of SAG support, Golden Globe support and surely Critics Choice support next week will be huge for the show. We’ll see if that carries all the way into the summer next year for the Emmys, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. I hope USA campaigns hard like Amazon-level this year for Transparent.
As for the worst, I know Silicon Valley got a Golden Globe nomination in Comedy Series but for them to not even be able to get a SAG nomination (over an ensemble with TWO PEOPLE) suggests the actors just aren’t big fans. They’ve still yet to get a single individual acting nomination at the Emmys, and I don’t see things changing next year.
Also, Show Me a Hero hasn’t had a great showing. Oscar Isaac was snubbed at SAG, as were Catherine Keener and Winona Ryder. This is even more glaring considering how barren those categories were. And Isaac got a Globe nom but they couldn’t even get a Miniseries/Movie nom! Over crap like American Horror Story: Hotel!
