Please be creative. Please be inspired. You can go with the typical choices of House of Cards, Viola Davis, and Ben Mendelsohn. There is nothing against them. I’m sure they all still have plenty of fans, but there are so many other inspired choices.
For example, Freddie Highmore gives it his all as his portrayal of the mentally ill Norman Bates in the final season of the critically acclaimed final season of Bates Motel. He, Vera Farmiga, and the show are continually snubbed every year; please watch at lest one episode, and maybe you will change your mind.
Consider nomination performances that aren’t big names or in big name shows. A great example of this would be any actor from Search Party. It is such a well-written, powerful, and hilarious show with amazing performances. Alia Shawkat and Jon Early both are devastatingly hilarious in this TBS gem. Also consider Mikey Madison and Pamela Adlon from Better Things, Justina Machado from One Day at A Time, Frieda Pinto from Guerilla, Sarah Sutherland from Veep, and Aisha Hinds from Shots Fired and Underground. If any actor deserves more than one nomination, it is Hinds, and it is absolutely devastating that she will probably not get near a nomination.
The directors, don’t be plain. We get it, you like pilots. Please nominate the best episodes in general instead of whichever pilot. And also, you don’t have to give Veep and Silicon Valley 500 directing nominations. Same for you writers.
In the end, I encourage you to be inspired. Pick the best, not the most well known. Instead of House of Cards, pick shows like The Leftovers, Rectify, The Good Fight, and Orange is the New Black. Instead of shows like Modern Family, pick stuff like Fleabag and Insecure. Instead of shows like Feud, pick stuff like the brilliant season 6 of AHS and American Crime.
Your favorite bitch,
P.S. Please don’t be stupid fucking sheep by nominating This is Us for 100000 nominations. I love it, and no offense to you if you love it as well, but an Emmy frontrunner, really?June 24, 2017 at 6:06 pm #1202132366

- “One Day at a Time“ breathes fresh life into the classic Norman Lear original with a lively, sharp, and proudly old-school sitcom bolstered by a surfeit of heart and terrific performances from Rita Moreno and Justina Machado. – Critics Consensus, Rotten Tomatoes
- Not only is Netflix’s reimagined “One Day at a Time” a joy to watch, it’s also the first time in many years that a multicamera sitcom (the kind filmed on a set with studio-audience laughter) has seemed so instinctively comfortable in its own skin. – Washington Post
