After its shocking snubs at the PGA and DGA I doubt it can get a Directing nod. Series seems likely just based on the hype its been deservedly getting.February 27, 2016 at 2:55 pm #367987
Mr. Robot getting a PGA nomination would have been shocking, seeing as it was ineligible. (PGA uses the same eligibility period as the Emmys.)
Mr. Robot will do very well at the Emmys, with nominations for series, writing, directing, lead actor, supporting actor, casting, editing and maybe production design, score and sound mixing.February 27, 2016 at 4:03 pm #367988
It will be snubbed in everything, it is just a golden globe winners trend, don’t take it so seriously. ^.-February 27, 2016 at 4:14 pm #367989
Not even Claire Danes, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Taraji P. Henson, Peter Dinklage and Robin Wright managed nominations for their first years eligible at SAG, but Rami Malek did. It won Best New Series at WGA, beating Better Call Saul and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and following True Detective, House of Cards, Girls, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire and Modern Family. The industry has demonstrated that they are excited about this show.February 27, 2016 at 4:50 pm #367990
Not Remotely deserved, in my opinion. It is all of this not deserved hype that ruined it for me, I used to think about it as a decent show with 2 very strong competitive episodes in the writing category, but that is about it. Maybe I just can’t stand the fact that something like this can get emmy attention when “The Americans”, “Rectify” and so many, so many other more deserving shows can’t.February 27, 2016 at 5:08 pm #367991
Erm, who exactly thinks these are the 3 main awards categories?February 27, 2016 at 5:21 pm #367992
People around these parts who follow the Emmys.February 27, 2016 at 6:01 pm #367993
hmm. interesting opinion.
so i suppose said people around these parts think screenplay is the 3rd main category for the Oscars too.February 27, 2016 at 6:55 pm #367994
It’s definitely possible. Something’s gonna fill in all of these gaps this year.February 27, 2016 at 8:36 pm #367995
Film is widely recognized as a director’s medium, plus they split the category.February 27, 2016 at 8:53 pm #367996
Well, when My Name is Earl, for example, can win Writing and Directing and not get a Series nom, I can’t think that the awards are set up such that W+D are clearly only behind Series in importance.
Or Homicide life on the street.February 27, 2016 at 10:11 pm #367997
^Errrm… Tape system? You don’t have to have overall support to win under the tape system. Writing+Directing noms >>>>>Lead Actress+Sup.Actor+Sup.Actress+Tons of guest nominations. Example: The Good Wife. Only public care about acting categories.February 27, 2016 at 10:30 pm #367998
Btw, the year My Name Is Earl premiered was the year they shifted to blue ribbon panels to select the nominees in Series categories. And those panels even snubbed hugely popular shows like Lost and Desperate Housewives. You can’t compare that to how things go on these days. It had to have a fair amount of support if it got nominated in directing and writing in the first place.February 28, 2016 at 10:30 am #367999
