Since the last few Emmy Drama winners got nominations for both Program of the Year and Outstanding Achievement in Drama, we have Stranger Things vs. The Handmaid’s Tale.June 19, 2017 at 10:55 am #1202126089
I am so happy with The Good Place getting so many nominations. Easily one of the best shows on television. And I just finished Master of None last night and have such affection for it (amazing season) — I want it to win everything.
I love This Is Us and Sterling K. Brown, so I’m happy with their nominations. I’m really pleased with the Big Little Lies support too. And The Handmaid’s Tale is my favorite show of the year, so I’d be happy if it won any.
And I’m still a huge fan of Stranger Things, so I love seeing its continued support. Along with the Gilmore Girls nom, even though it’s far from perfect.June 19, 2017 at 11:08 am #1202126113
Can we just talk about how the Individual Drama nominees are almost all female.June 19, 2017 at 11:11 am #1202126116
I am extremely glad that Pamela Adlon and Phoebe Waller-Bridge were recognized. Hopefully, they translate it into Emmys. Though, I would like to see Westworld recognized somehow, especially for Thandie Newton.June 19, 2017 at 11:15 am #1202126127
For a moment I leave Sasha the cunt behind and become Sasha the predictor. First of all I love LOVE women domination here! Finally women get properly recognized. For years this organization awarded and nominated 99% of the time males. Now it’s our time! Go girls!
Carrie Coon is so going to win this one. Hopefully Emmys take notice and rightfully nominate her. For THE LEFTOVERS, not Fargo.
That The Leftovers snub in drama series stings as fuck. I just don’t get it. This show needed that nomination! To show Emmys they have to nominate it. Now I don’t see it getting nominated anymore. Program of the Year is such a lousy category. They give a win there to any crap that’s on top right now. So fuck you for that TCA. F-U-C-K Y-O-U.
Oh, and I’m so glad we finally have a confirmation that Nicole Kidman is a frontrunner, not Jessica Lange as her stalker and other idiots want to think. Lange has Sarandon to share her votes with. Kidman got in without Witherspoon, that means this is comeback year for Nicki. Yay!
Yeah I wanted to leave the cunt behind but I just can’t help myself. Sorry not sorry.June 19, 2017 at 11:17 am #1202126137
Worst TCA nominations ever.
I could have taken a Carrie Coon snub or The Leftovers not getting Program of the Year, but its snub for drama series totally invalidates these for me.June 19, 2017 at 11:18 am #1202126139
Oh hell no. How will TV critics go to bed at night knowing they voted for corny-fest This Is Us over The Leftovers or messy The Good Place over the provocative Dear White PeopleJune 19, 2017 at 11:31 am #1202126157
The ladies dominated Drama! WOW!!! But I see you Sterling and congratulate you since no one else will lol.
Very happy to see Issa Rae make the cut in Comedy! “Insecure” should have made the cut in Comedy Series. Carrie Coon is having a moment right now, and I’m very close to predicting her for something. I feel like “Fargo” is the easier of the two though. No “The Leftovers” in Drama Series is incredibly depressing and doesn’t speak well to its Emmy prospects.
Who’s in for the Heritage Award?June 19, 2017 at 12:08 pm #1202126199
Keep sleeping on Phoebe Waller Bridge coasting her way to that Emmy nomination at your own risk <3June 19, 2017 at 12:22 pm #1202126222
Interesting to note that of the critical darlings/on the bubble actresses in the mix (namely Adlon, Rae, and Waller-Bridge), Fleabag was the only program to also pick up achievement in comedy. Didn’t include Bell as I don’t really see her as on the bubble for a nomination but I am pretty surprised The Good Place did so well – getting into new program over Westworld?? Ultimately I think The Good Place’s performance here won’t translate at the Emmys but it’s definitely noteworthy.
Interested to see who wins individual achievement in Drama between Moss and Coon.
Not surprised Big Little Lies made it into Program – it’s been continually underrated on the forums.
Not happy with all of the love for This Is Us – at least Metz did not make it in. How could they vote for this over The Leftovers in drama series?! The Leftovers made it in last year, right? I hope that it can at least win program. Switching out The Leftovers for This Is Us in my Emmy drama series lineup is making more and more sense but I’m not sure I can bear to do it.
I think someone already mentioned this but Empire got these same nominations the year it came out (and it won program of the year) but still flopped at the Emmys.
Nothing for Catastrophe?
Glad that, despite dropping on Netflix so recently, critics were able to catch up with Master of None. Despite its strangely barren guild season, it seems to be in a strong position. Can it expand its writing nominations to two I wonder?June 19, 2017 at 12:28 pm #1202126232
Why are people so surprised a critically acclaimed show did so well with a critics award group?June 19, 2017 at 12:35 pm #1202126241
Let’s go, let’s go, Queen Moss.
Drama: Handmaid’s Tale, This is Us
Leftovers in Program but not Drama makes me think of Walking Dead and Battlestar Galactica…
Fleabag, Master of None, Veep
Insecure, Better Things
Longform: Big Little Lies
Gilmore Girls, Night Of, Wizard of Lies
