    Wouldn’t it be AMAZING to have more females nominated in Individual Achievement instead of males?

    eh it happened already in 2013.  

    if the most likely contenders deserve it more, sure.

    Tried to edit but the forum is awful at basic things like that.

    It was an even split in 2012/2014 in terms of sex too.

    Looks like the nominations will be announced late this year – August 8th.

    The winners will be announced late this year, on August 8th.

    Program: The Americans, Empire, Justified, Mad Men, Transparent

    I took Game of Thrones out because nothing has ever been nominated for Program of the Year five years in a row.  Then again, nothing had ever been nominated four years consecutively before Game of Thrones last year.  But it is building some bad buzz and ratings are falling.  It can still come back next year or the year after like Lost and The Sopranos did and tie those shows’ record of five nominations.  I wrestled with The Americans for the last slot.  While it is winning best drama, it does not need a program nomination to do it, especially as it gets older.  The fourth season of Mad Men won drama without a program nomination for example.  Justified and Mad Men have not been nominated for program in years, but the TCA loves final seasons in this category.  The Shield was only nominated in this category for its first and last seasons.  An even better example is Battlestar Galactica, which got its only nomination in this category for its final season and then it actually won.

    Drama: The Americans, Empire, Game of Thrones, The Good Wife, Mad Men

    Yes, I have come around to Empire being a major awards force.  It was a combination of Critics’ Choice and other shows failing to generate enthusiasm, which was demonstrated at Critics’ Choice.  Enthusiasm is especially important at TCA, since they use a weird system in which voters can only nominate two contenders per category.  Not having Justified here is probably a mistake, but I worry about exposure, as only eleven reviewed the final season on Metacritic.  My five predicted nominees were certainly more seen by the membership and shows that people either love or do not watch do not always fare well here, as Enlightened and Hannibal can attest.  Going back to Battlestar Galactica, that show won program without a drama nomination for its final season.  The Good Wife is facing a bit of a backlash, but it won last year and still has strong pockets of support.

    Comedy: Jane the Virgin, Louie, Mom, Transparent, Veep

    Silicon Valley might get in.  The TCA continues to have some weird fascination with non-cable, so I threw Mom in here.  Watch out for The Big Bang Theory, but it has missed before and the show has finally passed its ratings peak, so buzz is cooling at least a little bit.  Broad City also might.  The niche thing that I alluded to above with Justified is holding me back, although Party Down got in.  Are people going to put Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt in their top two slots?  I doubt it.  Then again, The Mindy Project and Brooklyn Nine-Nine were nominated last year and it is the same brand of NBC-Universal humour.  I should mention Inside Amy Schumer and Last Week Tonight.

    New: Better Call Saul, Empire, Jane the Virgin, Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    How about a compromise and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt gets in here?  We do need to be wary of black-ish or How to Get Away with Murder sneaking in though because, as I said, there is a broadcast bias in the TCA for some reason.  In recent years, they have nominated Sleepy Hollow, Elementary, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mindy Project, New Girl, Revenge and Smash in this category, while snubbing Masters of Sex, Silicon Valley and Veep.  That is weird for a group of critics.  Can Daredevil enter?

    Movie/Mini: American Crime, Bessie, The Honorable Woman, Olive Kitteridge, Wolf Hall

    Nightingale will be too late for these voters, like The Normal Heart was last year.  Even Bessie is shaky.  Airing in the back half of May was not an issue a couple of years ago, but Critics’ Choice forced TCA’s hand last year and may again this year before they have a chance to see everything.  Also hurting Bessie is that interest was relatively low, with Metacritic finding fewer than two thirds the number of reviews as The Normal Heart or Behind the Candelabra for it.  It is also ten to twelve points below those two in terms of score, so the ones who saw it might not even vote for it.  In recent years, the TCA has opted to nominate stuff that they actually like in this category, even if eligibility is dubious, over actual miniseries and movies.  In fact, they nominated zero movies and traditional miniseries last year, going for two foreign shows (Broadchurch and The Returned) and three anthologies (True Detective, Fargo, American Horror Story).  Two years ago, they nominated Rectify because the first season was “only” six episodes.  Maybe Broadchurch and American Horror Story get nominated again, but those shows faced some backlash.  Watch out for 24, which they previously nominated in this category for the Redemption movie and was just nominated at CCTA.

     Not having Justified here is probably a mistake, but I worry about exposure, as only eleven reviewed the final season on Metacritic.  

    Looks like nineteen.  Eleven extremely positive, plus 8 positive. With zero mixed reviews/so-so reviews… which is amazing.

    For the Mad Men finale, there were 8 extremely positive reviews, 15 positive reviews, and 15 mixed/so-so reviews. Twice as many reviews as Justified, but not as glowing, overall.

    I do not recall them ever announcing the specific date that they will announce the nominations in the past.  We usually know roughly when they will happen because the Firewall & Iceberg podcast makes reference to voting; have they said anything?

    I was referring to the pre-season reviews when I said eleven.

    I can still see a lot of the people who were mixed on the finale nominating the half-season overall though.  I might even count myself in that camp if I were a voter.  But counting the number of finale reviews kind of supports my argument actually.  Whereas nineteen reviewed the finale of Justified, thirty-eight reviewed the finale of Mad Men, so Justified‘s potential is exactly half of Mad Men‘s in this case.  Going a step further, I would speculate that Mad Men is more likely to be watched than Justified by the TCA members who are not posting weekly reviews and there are many of them.  I blame them for the continued The Big Bang Theory nominations and wins.

    It will be great once we are past this Emmy season and I do not have a Justified-sized hole in my fantasy nominees.

    Most here are predicting Justified and Orange is the New Black for best drama at the expense of The Good Wife and Empire.  I would prefer those nominees.  Imagine that—me sticking up for The Good Wife and Empire.
