Overlooking Gillian Anderson ("Great Expectations"), Kenneth Branagh ("Wallander"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman ("Sherlock"), and Toby Jones and Sienna Miller ("The Girl") in the TV movie categories.
There are far too many problems with the comedy categories to keep the list simple, but let's start with the boneheaded voters who still think "Glee" and "The Office" are even remotely relevant. They left out the talented and noted casts of "Community," "Girls," "New Girl," "Parks and Recreation," and "Veep."
How are Emmy winners Julie Bowen ("Modern Family") and Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") snubbed, especially to continue nominating Edie Falco ("Nurse Jackie") and Betty White ("Hot in Cleveland)? Zooey Deschanel ("New Girl"), Lena Dunham ("Girls"), and Mindy Kaling ("The Mindy Project") would have also been worthy nominees.
No problems with the funny men nodded, but it would have been nice to see Max Greenfield ("New Girl") and Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation"). Note to voters, though, when you receive your final ballots: a seventh consecutive trophy for Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") would be way past the point of overkill.
