It’s way too late now, but it’s time the ATAS look at its eligibility rules that kept shows like Continuum, which will go down as one of Canada’s most honored series in recent memory from being nominated.
New rule: Any English-language series, no matter its country of origin, if it debuted on broadcast, basic cable or premium cable TV, is automatically eligible. No exceptions. You are engaging in discrimination otherwise. Game of Thrones is almost 100% internationally financed and all, yet they get a pass. Orphan Black likewise. A level playing field needs to be the goal here, and as long as shows produced north of the border like Continuum are banned from competing, the system is broken and needs a reformation.December 26, 2015 at 8:31 am #366432
My Emmy wish for next year so far is that Maura Tierney gets nominated in Drama Supporting Actress for The Affair. There is one guaranteed free slot with Hendricks now no longer in the running. I would love for Tierney to fill the vacancy. If tapes mattered still, she’d stand a great shot at winning too!December 26, 2015 at 8:37 am #366433

BoJack Horseman or Rick and Morty in Animated Program.
FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)December 26, 2015 at 1:54 pm #366440
Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty, Steven Universe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles, and Adventure Time for Best Animated Program.
Also Cartoon Network, PLEASE submit “Adventure Time: Stakes” for Best Miniseries. If they promote it enough, it could beat Fargo. Stranger things have happened, plus the category is much more open with there being a separate category for TV Movies!
NO Simpsons, Family Guy, Archer, and ESPECIALLY NO BOB’S BURGERS PLEEEEAAAASSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;PDecember 26, 2015 at 1:58 pm #366441
I know it’s “one wish” for the Emmys. But I still feel I should mention Krysten Ritter’s phenomenal and groundbreaking work on Jessica Jones. Episode 5 “The Sandwich Saved Me” should be her submission due to the sheer amount of range she shows in it.December 26, 2015 at 2:37 pm #366442
The Leftovers, Fargo, The Affair, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for every category they are eligible in.
Please fucking snub American Horror Story, Downton Abbey, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Silicon Valley, Homeland, Ray Donovan.
Throw a bone to Sense8, Master of None, UnREAL, You’re the Worst, The Americans, Jane the Virgin, Orphan Black. Nominate Empire for anything but Best Drama.December 26, 2015 at 2:54 pm #366443
I’ll take anything for Sense8.December 26, 2015 at 3:32 pm #366444
I would love for the Enmys to embrace Unreal in drama series, actress, supporting actress, and writing.
