    What new comedy has the best chance at this years Emmys?

    Master of None is by far and away the most acclaimed show out of all the options. Aziz Anzari is a very popular comedian and it the fact that it is on Netflix doesnt hurt it. Anzari is a lock for a nomination, and I think it has a really good shot of getting in

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Master of None has by far the best chance. It is the only one of the choices that is better than a longshot. Horace and Pete could get in, we know how much they love Louis C.K., and something in the back of my mind is telling me Angie Tribeca will get in as well as Rashida Jones, but that is very unlikely.

    Master of None gets my vote. However, I’d love to Love get in as well. I’m almost done with S1 and I think it’s fantastic.

    Wouldn’t surprise me, honestly, if all of these end up getting the shaft. I actually went with “The Grinder,” as I can fathom Fred Savage landing a nom.

    Definitely Master of None – it underperformed a bit on the guilds circuit but I am hoping that it can still make a strong showing at the Emmys. A writing nod especially would be well warranted.

    Baffled by everybody stumping for Horace and Pete. It is not associated with any platform or network, it is distributed though Louis C.K.’s personal website. Is he himself going to personally fund an Emmy campaign? Will voters even know this exists? I highly doubt this happens.

    I agree with above poster that Savage (or maybe even Lowe) may surprise with a nom from Grinder although I am not currently predicting either ..those categories can sometimes throw a WTF nominee in there from an otherwise ignored broadcast show (Brooklyn 9-9 comes to mind).

    For Crazy Ex, I am not a huge fan overall of the show but a few original song noms would be great – those are far and away the best part of the show. Bloom does stand a chance as well, especially because the Emmys seem to like creator/actors (i.e. Louis C.K., Lena Dunham, etc.). It’ll be too bad if she is the first CW actress to get in over Rodriguez, though.

    I love both Grinder and Master of None but The Grinder is my new favorite new comedy in 5 or ten years I think it is comedy gold every week. I wish we could see a repeat of 2011 when both leads on The Big Bang Theory so they could find a way to nominate Lowe and Savage. But I am doubtful because FOX sitcoms that weren’t Arrested Development or GLEE haven’t done that well @ The EMMYS.

    100% Master of None, hands down, without a doubt.

    Love does not deserve an Emmy nomination.

    Master of None, but I’m not as sure as I am with drama. This crop is pretty basic.

    I could see Master of None getting nominations for series, directing, and writing. It wouldn’t be too out of the question for Aziz Ansari to get an acting nod, though I wouldn’t personally nominate him myself. I would love to see Noel Wells get a supporting nomination but I don’t think it’ll happen.

    Louis C.K. on Horace and Pete:

    Warning: this show is not a ‘comedy’. I dunno what it
    is. It can be funny. And also not. Both. I believe that ‘funny’ works
    best in its natural habitat. Right in the jungle along with ‘awful’,
    ‘sad’, ‘confusing’ and ‘nothing’. I just think it’s fair this one time
    to warn you since you have every right to expect a comedy from a
    comedian.”

    Unless it goes limited, it is also a drama at the Emmys by default, just because of its runtime.  And if it appeals for a comedy classification, no way is the academy granting it if they only watch the first episode, which is more of a “Thirsty Bird” than a “Milk of the Gods”.

    I think the show that is gonna break big this year on the Comedy side is not a first year show. It’s gonna be “blackish”. Mark my words….

    As for the above shows, I only see “Master of None” and “Crazy Ex Girlfiend” as gaining any and very little traction.

    I think both Master of None and Blackish will get Comedy Series nominations.
