    The last time was 24 winning in 2006 and there hasn’t even been a network show nominated since 2011.

    Is there anything coming up that could even get nominated in the next few years?

    I think it is still possible. I think there are alot of network shows coming up that clearly show that networks are uping their game so time will tell. The Good Wife could possibly do well in the future if it stays at this level it is at.

    If The Good WIfe couldn’t even get noiminated this year, it won’t ever win.

    Honestly I doubt it, if only because I think networks will either ie or the network/cable distinction will disappear.

    The distinction will never disappear. Cable TV will always be TV you have to pay extra for Cable to keep the commercials away.

    Not this year, unless Gracepoint finds some great success this year and FOX decides to change their mind and play it as a drama series. Other than that, I could definitely see The Good Wife or (if it gets progressively better) The Blacklist making a push in the coming years.

    Only a hot, new, critically-acclaimed show can do it, but it doesn’t seem to exist yet.

    I think it’s possible for a network show to get nominated again (something new with tons of critical acclaim). But, I’m not sure about winning unless the Networks change their programming models.

    How do you know what is gonna happen in 2016, 2017, 2018…?

    Have you read/seen the episodes? Well, they haven’t even been filmed yet!

    Anything is possible. It helps that AMC is winding down its status as a competitor.

    ^Agreed, it got so much better in Season 5, so why wouldn’t it get even better in the 6th or 7th season? It’s also pretty clear that there will only be 7 seasons, so maybe the farewell hug will get it back into Series. If it stays just as good, I could totally see it happening.

    I don’t know, it’s all this HURRY about predicting things whose existence we can’t even prove right now! It’s sort of religious, only believing you can predict? Well, that’s not good.

    Sure. Anything’s possible. I’m still holding out hope for “The Good Wife” before its run is over.

    I haven’t even seen this season actually (or any season, although I intend to do it at some point). It’s just very hard for a show to come back into the field after being snubbed, let alone win. If the Good WIfe couldn’t do it with the amount of buzz it had, I don’t believe it ever will. Even if the next season is as good, it won’t have as much buzz because that’s just how things work. Maybe it will manage a nomination, but winning is another story.
