I love following award shows. I also love movies and music. My favorite movie is The Color Purple with The Wizard of Oz coming in second. My favorite actress is Bette Davis and my favorite singer is Aretha Franklin.

Yeah, I remembered the Tatiana Maslany situation immediately when I saw Viola nominated this time. And it’s not even the final season. She probably was 7th last year, maybe 8th if Moore was 7th. And the only reason they were snubbed was the fact that Emmy voters name check shows more than performers(Hi, Evan Rachel Wood), Oh had the most buzz at that time and Maslany/Russell/Foy were all saying goodbye.
I also think that Viola Davis was 7th or 8th last year. I think that Viola’s nomination in Guest Actress for Scandal helped me with this theory. There was support for Viola, but she probably just missed Lead Actress last year.July 16, 2019 at 7:55 pm #1202980200
I watched Veep this past season and I cannot think of a reason why Tony Hale should have been nominated. I still think that his work on Arrested Development was much superior than what he has done and won for on Veep.July 16, 2019 at 7:50 pm #1202980182

I am thrilled that At Home With Amy Sedaris is nominated for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and it would get my vote
I just realized that Delta Work did not get nominated for Hairstyling for RuPaul’s Drag Race and that Raven was nominated for Outstanding Make-Up as well for RuPaul’s Drag Race. MmmmmmJuly 16, 2019 at 7:11 pm #1202980096
I’ll be glad when the Academy stops throwing awards at Julia Louis Dreyfus. Enough is enough!!!!
And I don’t know what Jenifer Lewis has to do to get a nomination! Come on now!
These SNL nominations every year are a bit much. Bring back the Variety performance category.
I am always baffled about the constant shut out of Jenifer Lewis because she is definitely worthy of nominations for black-ish and she has had episodes that would have made outstanding submissions.July 16, 2019 at 7:04 pm #1202980068
Titus Burgess – Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Jane Krakowski – Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Susan Kelechi Watson – This Is Us
Griffin Dunne – This Is UsJuly 16, 2019 at 7:02 pm #1202980062
I am rooting for the outstanding performance of Phylicia Rashad to win for This Is Us.July 16, 2019 at 6:54 pm #1202980052
BARRY – “ronny/lily”
FLEABAG – “Episode 1”
THE MARVELOUS MRS. MAISEL – “Vote for Kennedy, Vote for Kennedy”
RUSSIAN DOLL – “Nothing in this World Is Easy”
SCHITT’S CREEK – “The Hike”
VEEP – “Veep”
Thank you for sharing your votes and for taking our recommendations. I wish that Schitt’s Creek made it into the Writing nominations.July 16, 2019 at 6:48 pm #1202980030
I was hoping that Liza Weil would have made it in Supporting ActressJuly 16, 2019 at 6:45 pm #1202980022
I am sooooooooo happy that Schitt’s Creek finally got the Emmy nominations that it deserved for series, O’Hara and Eugene Levy. Dan Levy and Annie Murphy should have been nominated as well, but I expect them to make it next year.
I wish that Jenifer Lewis would have made it in Supporting Actress for black-ish.July 16, 2019 at 6:26 pm #1202979968
I am soooo thrilled for Phylicia Rashad getting the nomination for This Is Us and I hope that she wins the Emmy that she richly deserves. Phylicia has range, impact and lots of screen time to make her a worthy winner.
I am also happy that Glynn Turman finally got nominated for How To Get Away With Murder. I was hoping that Griffin Dunne would get nominated for This Is Us.
I am disappointed that Susan Kelechi Watson did not get into Supporting Actress Drama for This Is Us. Susan was more deserving of a nomination that Fiona Shaw from Killing Eve.
Lead Actress – If Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer split the votes, then I think the winner will be Robin Wright.July 16, 2019 at 6:08 pm #1202979943
We could argue that every best actress nominated except Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh are “fillers” because those two dominated past awards and online conversations, and most of the others would have been snubbed with bigger competition. However, due to vote splitting likely happening I believe all of them have a legit shot, even Viola Davis due to her name recognition, already winning for the role and also next season announced as the final one (everyone knows she is not getting a final season nomination next year) Even though I think her performance got worse over the years due to bad writing, we can’t deny that Annalise Keating is the most iconic character of the bunch after Daenerys.
Viola Davis’ performance did not get worse over the years. Actually, Viola’s submission was very strong in season 2 and she would have been a worthy winner. Viola Davis had a couple of strong possible episodes that Viola could have submitted if she were nominated last year.
