    3. Either Jim Carter + Brendan Coyle win best supporting
    actor over Esposito, Paul, Dinklage and Harris.

    Simply put, the “Downton Abbey” supporting players don’t deserve to be here. They
    are not even in the top 20 actors in this category, let alone the top six. The
    series quickly turned ridiculous with sloppy storytelling after a good first
    season. In terms of their performances, Jim Carter (Mr. Carson) is not a
    commanding presence. Oftentimes, he fades in the background and he had very
    little to do this season. Brendan Coyle (Mr. Bates) is just not believable as
    someone so noble as to be put in jail without saying a word about his wife. The
    convoluted writing doesn’t help his case and his moments with Anna seemed so
    melodramatic and weird. To compare these two with the other four is a joke and
    it would be a slap in the face if either of the Downton guys pulled off an
    upset.

    2. “The Big Bang Theory” wins outstanding comedy series.

    I think it’s time for the multi-camera sitcom with a laugh track to be killed.
    Even if BBT is the best of that category, they don’t exactly have stiff
    competition. My main problems with the series are the same with most network
    comedies that want syndication over quality: its humour is way too broad and
    the characters have no consequences while each episode exists in a vacuum. The
    nerd jokes could be plucked from a book and Jim Parsons’ performance annoys me like
    no other. And yes, I’m still upset that TV’s best comedy — “Parks + Recreation”,
    failed to even make the list.

    1. “Downton Abbey” wins best drama series over “Breaking
    Bad”, “Mad Men”, “Homeland” and “Game of
    Thrones”. *minor spoilers*

    Sure, they stuck the landing, but does anyone else recall how absolutely insane
    the Matthew-Mary storyline is? And that’s not even the worst storyline of the
    season as Mr. Bates’ faux murder of his wife far surpasses it. Also, it’s
    sloppy for characters to coincidentally be near a vent when another character
    is talking about vital plot information. Let’s be serious for a minute.

    Yes, it’s British. Yes, it’s a period drama. However, it’s not a very good one
    because the plots are so loosely drawn that you can’t be personally invested in
    any of the characters. It reminds me of the later seasons of “Grey’s
    Anatomy”; it’s entertaining in a car crash kind of way to see what
    ridiculous things the writers will do to get people talking. Unfortunately,
    it’s at the expense of pretty much everything else.

     

    Honourable Mention: Amy Poehler loses yet again.

    What three results would make you the angriest on Emmy

    2. Anybody other than Bryan Cranston or Damian Lewis wins Drama Lead Actor.
    3. Claire Danes doesn’t win Drama Lead Actress

    1. Amy Poehler loses again.
    2. Sofia Vergara wins.
    3. Julianne Moore loses.

    I agree with The Big Bang Theory winning best comedy but that is not even on my radar as a possibility because it’s so disturbing so I’m not acknowledging it.

    Actually this mentality makes me angry. Single-camera comedies are not automatically better than multi-camera comedies. I respect the fact that you don’t like them but why should they cease to exist? They’re not all the same show. Besides, a sizable part of the audience enjoys them.

    It bothers me that people (not just you) are allowed to dislike multi-camera comedies in general and that single-camera comedies are considered “cooler”. If someone dislikes one show or doesn’t find it funny, they are dismissed as stupid and humorless. Like everyone shares the same sense of humor or every show has the same sensibilities.

    Let me clarify. It was poorly worded but I meant to say that their chances of being recognized by the Emmy’s should be killed, not the shows entirely.

    Obviously they entertain a large amount of people so they’re justified by being on the air. And plus, Charlie Sheen’s “Anger Management” lead to a bump in ratings for shows like “Louie” and “Wilfred”. I’m not so ignorant as to suggest that anything I don’t like should be cancelled, just that I don’t like the shows.

    I stick by my stance that BBT is the best of the multi-camera sitcoms and it is not very good.

    EDIT: By the way, the laugh track is my biggest pet peeve. For some reason, I can deal with it for shows I’m nostalgic for (Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond) but anything post-2005, I loathe.

    I agree with outsider. Some, make that most of the greatest sitcoms of all time are multi-camera comedies and there is still a potential for great shows like these. Right now, mockumentaries seem to be the hot thing. But I enjoy a good multi cam show and I enjoy a live recorded audience (but I hate laugh tracks). The Big Bang Theory is nominated because it is one of the best shows on TV and is the best in this field. Don’t hate on it.

    There are amazing multi-camera comedies but I haven’t seen one in the past five years or more.
    I don’t believe that “The Big Bang Theory” is one of the best show on TV because it’s not even one of the ten best comedies on TV.

    Comedies that are better than “Big Bang”:
    -Modern Family
    -Louie
    -Parks + Rec
    -New Girl
    -Girls
    -Curb Your Enthusiasm
    -30 Rock
    -Happy Endings
    -Archer
    -Children’s Hospital
    etc…

    Of course this is all subjective so our declarative statements are worthless without our logic behind it. I outlined my reasons for why I dislike it: humour is way too broad, Jim Parsons is annoying, characters have little consequence, laugh track, etc… I’d like to know why you consider BBT one of the best shows on TV.

    I can’t stand any of Chuck Lorre’s sitcoms. And that wouldn’t change if they were all single-camera.

    And this is coming from a big fan of Roseanne, which was the last good thing Lorre worked on.

    I don’t really get “angry” but…I’d be incredibly pissed beyond all belief if…

    1. Melissa McCarthy repeats (esp. over Amy Poehler or Zooey Deschanel)
    2. Hemingway and Gellhorn wins anything (it’s one of the few authentic TV Movie/Miniseries nominated but…it still sucks)
    3. Jimmy Fallon loses
