    Did the egregious snubs of The Good Wife’s near-perfect fifth season create enough buzz for it to be taken seriously in the Emmy races for drama series, directing, and writing this year? 

    Season six is quite polarizing; some feel it’s on par with season five, while others think it’s an enormous step down. Critics, with the exception of a few bad apples, have praised it universally. And there’s still a third of the season yet to unfold. 

    Besides its annual casting nomination, Julianna Margulies, Christine Baranski, maybe some other supporting actors/actresses, and a few guest stars, will The Good Wife finally be welcomed back into the big categories?

    It was Golden Globe nominated, won the WGA, and had was awarded the Golden Tomato from Rotten Tomatoes for best reviewed drama series of the year (yes, this was for season six).

    I think it will probably be nominated for casting, so yes.

    I’m hoping yes, but my better judgement tells me no. Not with Orange coming over. If it does get nominated in writing for Oppo Research or Mind’s Eye, it could take the win.

    As of right now, 3/21/2015, up until 6×15, Open Source, here’s what I think::

    Opportunities thus far in writing: Oppo Research, Mind’s Eye, The Trial
    Opportunities thus far in directing: Mind’s Eye, The Line, Hail Mary

    I have a feeling the number of acting nominations could be overwhelming….

    Extremely Likely Bets::
    Lead Actress: Julianna Margulies
    Supporting Actress: Christine Baranski
    Guest Actor: David Hyde Pierce

    Strong Bets:
    Guest Actor: Michael J. Fox
    Guest Actor: Dylan Baker
    Guest Actress: Carrie Preston

    Good Chance::
    Supporting Actor: Alan Cumming
    Guest Actor: Ed Asner

    50/50 Shot::
    Supporting Actress: Archie Panjabi
    Supporting Actor: Matt Czuchry
    Guest Actress: Linda Lavin

    Undetermined::
    Guest Actor: Oliver Platt

    Better Call Saul is NOT getting a casting nomination.

    I’d say Casting noms will be:
    Game of Thrones
    The Good Wife
    House of Cards
    Orange is the New Black

    ~ plus one of the following: Empire, Bloodline, How to Get Away with Murder

    Why would Better Call Saul not be nominated? They love new shows and especially ones that are nominated for series. True Detective even won.

    They probably won’t nominate Better Call Saul since most of that cast were already cast by Breaking Bad’s casting directors. Did Fraiser get a casting nomination? Just curious

    I think time will tell with Archie Panjabi. It depends on how well Kalinda’s exit is written and put into motion. If it’s something sensational like Will’s death, then maybe. She already has a winning episode to submit, and is a past winner. It all depends on the rest of the season.

    Just remember, everyone thought Robin Wright was without a doubt winning at this point last year. Will had just died, and Julianna’s big two episodes (The Last Call and A Material World) hadn’t aired yet. A lot can change in seven episodes.

    The Casting award started in the 1999-2000 ceremony, when Fraiser was in its 7th season. It didnt get a nomination that year, but it got one the next year for it’s eight season and then recieved its final nomination in this category the next year for it’s ninth season

    You give the Emmys too much credit.

    It will probably get a casting nomination because it has been nominated every year its been on.

    And while it doesn’t have an episode as acclaimed and as talked about (yet) as “Hitting The Fan”, but Hail Mary could get a writing nom and a music composition nomination even though Hitting The Fan failed to get neither (It didn’t submit in writing though and I’m not sure if it was submitted in music composition). It could also be Czuchry (fingers crossed) and Panjabi’s nominations

    I think Oops Choice is a strong episode to get in for writing. It’s a somewhat bottle episode for Margulies working out the logistics of her campaign and finding out her son got his girlfriend pregnant.

    You mean ‘Oppo Research,’ right?

    The Kings will likely submit one of the episodes that airs in 2015. So far they have The Debate (disappointing) and Mind’s Eye (divisive). Anyway, I don’t think the show is a writng contender regardless of what they will submit.
