    I was disappointed with TGW’s showing at the Emmy nominations this morning, especially no noms for Christine Baranski and Julianna Marguiles, but I was quite happy that the show’s series finale got nommed for a writing award. I went back to watch it again tonight and, no matter what you thought about the way it ended, it was great writing.

    Too divisive. GoT vs Americans vs Robot. Even Downton is ahead.

    No way, no how (along with Unreal). The nomination was the win.

    The Americans had better episodes than the bland season finale, i don’t think they stand a chance of winning here, this is where Downton Abbey get its goodbye hug.

    The Mad Men finale lost last year.

    It’s nice symmetry for the Kings getting in for the pilot and series finale, but that’s where I think things end. “End” is too divisive/bad to win here. The nomination is the clear reward.

    We all know Julian Fellowes is winning Drama Writing for Downton Abbey.

    It doesn’t even need justification/rationalization.

    As much as I want them to claim the gold, the nomination is the win for the Kings.

    This race is The Americans vs. Game of Thrones. Last year showed us how popular Game of Thrones is even among the writers’ branch. Also, if they didn’t award Mad Men’s season finale last year, they won’t give it to Downton this year, although it would be great if they did. I think Downton’s goodbye hug will be in the form of a third win for Maggie Smith.

    Unlike the Mad Men finale the Downton Abbey final episode was great.

    No chance for The Good Wife. I think in the build up to the Emmys we will be debating whether GOT will triumph again or if Fellowes gets a farewell win, but in matter of fact The Americans will pull off a surprise win and cement itself as a serious Emmy player in the future.

    The only nominations TGW deserved this year was Christine Baranski (which she didn’t get) and this writing nomination. The 7th season was a disappointment (I actually liked season 6 unlike most), but the series finale was interesting. It’s just weird that the show has been snubbed in the past for superior episodes. I guess this was a “goodbye” nomination a’la ER’s from a few years ago. But I don’t think it’ll win. It’s too divisive.

    Well House & 24 won on their only nom, so I don’t think a win necessarily means the writers’ branch loves a show.
    There was quite a bandwagon for the main HBO shows last season. The fun little voting method could do that again though, yes.

    Those wins are not comparable because of the different voting systems.
