    Sons of Anarchy is a fantastic show, and I think that it deserves more awards attention especially at the Emmys! The series, writing, directing, acting (especially Sagal) deserves award wins and nominations. Do you guys think it deserves award attention from the Emmys and should be considered a major contender?

    I think Sagal deserved supporting nods for seasons one and three and a lead nod, perhaps a win, for season two. Nothing really beyond that.

    It is a fantastic show and I do think it deserved wins and nominations here and there. Writing and directing nods for sure. Sagal should’ve been nominated for the whole show, this will be as ridiculous when it’s all over as Jennifer Carpenter never being nominated for Dexter (let’s be honest, she has two more shots, but it won’t happen). Sagal’s biggest mistake has probably been not being submitted in supporting all along. Switching categories for a show they’ve never paid attention to is not the best of plans.

    But really, I can’t imagine any other actors being that worthy of a nomination over the ones who have gotten one over the years.

    I’m very much against people being nominated of being fanboy-ed over an episode or two during a season, so I don’t think that Maggie Siff, Charlie Hunnam or Ron Perlman have really deserved nominations for a whole season, which is the way it should be. Sagal, yes.

    While I agree on Sagal, Directing, Writing, and Series, I do think Hunnam, Perlman, and Siff have done nomination-worthy work. Hunnam has only gotten better with each season, and last year may have been his best showcase, as Jax transformed from a somewhat-idealistic VP of SAMCRO into its ruthless, remorseless President, in the process becoming the very person he despised (very Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader like, but with much better writing, directing, and acting). Perlman deserved attention in season 2 and even this year, while Siff should’ve gotten some nominations from season 2 onward. Ryan Hurst deserved a nom for season 2, and guest actors like Adam Arkin and Ally Walker have been worthy of attention. Now SoA doesn’t have a prayer in the major categories, but hopefully Jimmy Smits can sneak into Guest Actor and get SoA its first acting nom. And if Walton Goggins gets in, considering he has a tough road ahead to back into Supporting Actor for Justified, that would be great, too. 

    But above all, what has hurt SoA the most, beyond the subject matter and FX’s subpar campaigning, is that Kurt Sutter, from 2010 onward, has trashed the voters for snubbing his show on Twitter. Now, it’s perfectly all right to be upset if you feel you’ve been snubbed (and it’s justified in this case), but it’s not all right to blast the very people whose votes you need by calling them names and demeaning them. It would be like a Presidential candidate calling his supporters idiots. How can you expect people to vote for you if you insult them? Voters remember that the kind of thing and, right or wrong, that hurts the show and anyone associated with it.

    Hunnam and Sagal have been Emmy-worthy every season they’ve been eligible. Jimmy Smits and especially Walton Goggins would make great guest actor drama Emmy nominees this year. But voters don’t recognize the show’s worth in any form, and Kurt Sutter has burned every Emmy bridge imaginable. So sadly, the Emmy consideration ship for this show has so sailed away.

    Ally Walker! Forgot about her. She should’ve been nominated. 

    Walton Goggins would be awesome. If he gets nominated, I’d love to see the voters faces when he shows up on his tape to see if they recognize him or not. I bet more than one could go the whole episode wondering “where’s Walton Goggins?”.

    I would love to see the voters’s faces when they DO realize it’s Goggins and go “what?!”. It would be so hilarious. I may have mentioned this in a previous thread, but if Goggins gets in, I hope clips are played so the audience can see how insane his guest stint was.

    And Hal Holbrook. An incredible arc for him as Gemma’s father. Ally Walker owned her guest actress arc hard. Both my personal guest acting winners for their year.
