    House of Cards.

    Spacey, Fincher and Willimon are all Oscar nominated, Spacey with two wins under his belt. Name recognition (let alone the sheer quality of the show) could get them nominated.

    My first guess would also be House of Cards. At least Kevin Spacey is a safe bet, imo. Absolutely deserving.

    My hopes are resting on Go On. I have learned to love mostly everything about this show: Matthew Perry, the outstanding supporting cast and the writing in particular. The show would also deserve a Comedy Series nomination. And it provides some really touching moments.

    The Newsroom has some safe ones: Jeff Daniels and a Writing Nom are a sure thing.

    I would love to see some Legit love. The last episode, Hoarders, was absolutely amazing. It was on Louie-level. Jim Jeffries, DJ Qualls and Mindy Sterling are great in it!

    Last year in the main categories (Series, Acting, Writing and Directing), these were the shows that appeared in something:

    DRAMA:

    – Homeland (Series, Actor, Actress, Directing, Writing – 4 wins)
    – Smash (Guest Actress)

    COMEDY:

    – Girls (Series, Actress, Writing, Directing)
    – Veep (Series, Actress – 1 win)
    – New Girl (Actress, Supporting Actor, Directing)
    – House of Lies (Actor)

    This year in the Drama side: House of Cards is the most likely, followed by The Americans, The Newsroom and… maybe, Hannibal? lol

    In the comedy side I don’t see any.

    Agreed on House of Cards and The Americans getting a few nominations. I think Keri Russell will be nominated in a Lead Actress field that’s pretty different than last year’s lineup,, and maybe even Noah Emmerich in Supporting Actor, although he’s less of a sure bet.

    On the comedy side I don’t see anything. It was pretty weak year for new comedies.

    Ellen Barkin can still get in for “The New Normal” for supporting actress in a comedy series. If “The Mindy Project” had made a stronger case for itself this season, I wouldn’t have had a problem penciling in Mindy Kaling in lead actress in a comedy series, and possibly a writing nomination. There’s also some guest acting contenders from both series who are decent bets for possible nominations.

    House of Cards and The Newsroom seem like sure-things for Kevin Spacey and Jeff Daniels respectively.  Possibly Robin Wright and Sam Waterston along with them.

    I have my doubts that any of the new comedies will break through in any category.  Maybe Matthew Perry for Go On but even he’s a longshot.

    House of Cards is the most likeliest to gain Emmy nominations this year. I bet that its going to get nominated for Drama Series, Actor, Supporting Actor, Writing, and Directing.

    I forgot about Hannibal. I’m curious to see it, but I’m quite skeptical considering everything from the Hannibal Lecter series that has been released after The Silence of the Lambs has been a complete disappointment.  Unfortunately, the common denominator of these post-Lambs films (Hannibal, 2001; Red Dragon, 2002; Hannibal Rising, 2007) is producer Martha De Laurentiis, who will also be helming the new TV series. De Laurentiis had no involvement in the critically-acclaimed Manhunter or the Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs. Hopefully Bryan Fuller’s vision will be closer to what we’ve come to love about the Hannibal Lecter stories.

    Does anyone else here think The Following could have Kevin Bacon in? Star power + heavy campaigning from Fox could possibly do it.

    Netflix isn’t a legitimate TV network, merely an online distribution service, and if any of its shows/actors get in, it will discredit the Emmys even more than they already are.

    I’m not sure that’s entirely fair. With shows like House of Cards and Arrested Development (neither of which I watch, by the way), Netflix is demonstrating it’s trying to break into the realm of original programming. Obviously it is much more than “merely” a distribution service.  If the quality is there, then why not nominate the actors, writers, and producers that worked very hard to create the product?

    The platforms on which quality television programs can be seen is changing rapidly. It’s no longer just the Big 4 networks, or the networks and cable. I say good for the Academy for recognizing that other “non-traditional” avenues exist in television today.

    House of Cards was not the “best new drama” that many predicted it might be, but, for the sake of argument, let’s say it was. Let’s say it was far and away the best show that aired in the eligibility period (as it is, it is better than a vast majority of what’s on “traditional” TV these days anyway). Excluding it from consideration on a technicality would “discredit” the Emmys far more than not doing so.
