These critics really want This is Us to get an Emmy nomination, don’t they? Poor Leftovers got thrown under the bus.pulp50ParticipantJoined:Feb 13th, 2017Topics:21Posts:1710June 19, 2017 at 3:39 pm #1202126474
I’m starting to come around to predicting this is us to at least get a nomination, but this isn’t a race between the crown and this is like all the experts think.June 19, 2017 at 4:08 pm #1202126487
I’m waiting for an article from Ben Travers of Indiewire about how the critics are idiots for going with This is Us over The Leftovers.Fenton LorterParticipantJoined:Apr 24th, 2017Topics:0Posts:2June 19, 2017 at 5:50 pm #1202126533
Disappointed Reese didn’t get a nom. She was better than Kidman imo. Looks like Reese’s Emmy chances are down the toilet.June 19, 2017 at 5:56 pm #1202126535
They nominated Stranger Things and This is Us over The Leftovers. This is bullshit.
My guess is that so many critics thought it was a lock to get in that they decided not to vote for it and vote for a show with not that great chances (they only get to vote for two shows per category in the nomination round)RileyParticipantJoined:Oct 11th, 2010Topics:81Posts:10967June 19, 2017 at 6:06 pm #1202126554
It is four now, which I suspect is the problem. People who watch The Leftovers love it, but it has visibility issues, so the more votes that voters get per category, the more that consensus choices will prevail over passion picks.eastwestParticipantJoined:Jun 6th, 2011Topics:117Posts:3541June 19, 2017 at 6:43 pm #1202126584
Strong set of nominees. Love that the acting races are full of women and men of color. I see you, nerdy critics!June 19, 2017 at 7:15 pm #1202126624
Why did they nominate Bell over Danson?? Not that she was bad or anything, but their felt like there was more buzz with Danson.pulp50ParticipantJoined:Feb 13th, 2017Topics:21Posts:1710June 19, 2017 at 7:22 pm #1202126637
Danson was the best part of the show and of all comedic supporting performances on tv this season. It should have been himJune 19, 2017 at 7:33 pm #1202126650
I just don’t get how the most critically acclaimed shows in TV are ignored by TCA and it pisses me off. If the Leftovers looses program to This is Us or some other crap that isn’t The Leftovers I will hunt every single fucker down that calls them self a critic and make them watch the This is Us using the stuff that the scientist used in A Clock Work Orange.
Joking of course

I’ll celebrate the nods that “The Leftovers” did get, b/c it could have been snubbed altogether. It’s no reason to throw “This Is Us” under the bus. Congratulations to both shows for their deserved nominations!Guest2014ParticipantJoined:Nov 15th, 2011Topics:152Posts:2823June 19, 2017 at 7:47 pm #1202126659
I liked This is Us but I’m annoyed at how much better it did than The Leftovers. Does anybody actually think This is Us is better than The Leftovers? It’s your right to think if you do but come on.June 19, 2017 at 7:58 pm #1202126664
I think the Drama snub could actually help The Leftovers in Program of the Year in the long run. More passion will be behind it to make sure it gets some sort of award.
