    Well Tom you want us to raise hell in here, so here it goes!

    Margo Martindale just won an Emmy for 1 throwaway scene that lasted 2 minutes.

    Emmys are a total sham this year.

    Goldderby needs to completely lead the charge against this voting change.  It is absurd!  No more celeb worshipping.  Tell the truth what happened here.  This is almost like Ellen Burstyn winning for Mrs. Harris.  heck with the new voting, she may have won.  They clearly are not watching the submitted work!

    And I haven’t even brought up Reg E. Cathey who was barely in his episode either.

    Why even bother watching the Emmys?  It is a total popular vote.  What made the Emmys great, is now dead.  Not even remotely based on the submitted performances.  They completely exposed themselves with this Martindale win!  Literally EVERY woman did more in their tape.  She won because she’s Margo Martinale and they love her and probably they got shamed into not supporting The Americans.  Man what a great reason to give someone an Emmy!  Man what a joke.

    RIP EMMYS 2015.

    We need to use any and all power we have to change this system.

    I will go a step further, every single winner this year should have an asterisk put next to their name.  That’s how badly this new system got exposed with the Martindale win.

    Not one winner this year could be considered legitimate.  Even if they deserve it.

    Wait, Margo Martindale won? Jesus christ, that’s embarrassing. I’m literally cringing.

    Edit: well this totally means Lily Tomlin is winning Comedy Actress, right? UGH!

    One scene is more than enough to be worthy of an emmy! Kurtz needed to win for and the band played on!

    I’m going to take the ambitious approach and speculate that maybe the voting body, by and large, couldn’t care less about the guest categories and didn’t bother to watch any tapes, but won’t screw up the major categories so badly?

    The quick version:

    Old system: a panel made up of members from the category’s branch of the Academy (or, for things like Comedy Series or Drama Series, from the entire Academy) would watch the submitted episodes and vote for the winner.  There was a time when they would all meet somewhere – usually the Beverly Wiltshire Hotel – to do this, but in recent years, the panelists could “vote from home.”

    New system: everybody in that branch can vote for the winner, and there’s no guarantee that they based it on just the submitted episodes.

    Thanks for the explaination. Yes, the new system doesn’t seem to base the vote much off of the submissions. Very interesting.

    LOL. The Emmys are worst than ever, and every member of television academy are a complete joke. How can Margo Martindale and Reg E. Cathey win for doing nothing ? Reg E. Cathey had a whole episode of great acting last year and he didn’t win and this year he wins for a 2 min appearance of nothing. Than you have Margo Martindale, the weakest contender of the six, also winning with a 2 min appearance of NOTHING. This is a great example why the Emmys are not taking as seriously as the Oscars, for making horrible decisions.

    I love Margo Martindale I really do. Of course the editors put it best she’s not to blame for this win. It’s the stupid voters who don’t give a crap and check of who they like. It really is unfortunate that Ciecly or even Rachel got this award taken away from someone who was in it for 2 minutes. I also love Reg but we have to blame the voters. Let’s home they redeem themselves on Sunday. I will say though good job giving the award to Whitford.

    There is no hope of the voters redeeming themselves after these wins.  These wins are a preview of the storm that is coming our way next Sunday.  I will record the awards via DVR and not waste my time with disappointment after disappointment.
