Emmy nominations 2015: the excluded and the surprises


Yesterday were announced the nominations for the Emmy Awards 2015, whose ceremony will take place the next 20 September. Like every year there were some predictable names, some unexpected names while others some data were ignored, Unfortunately or fortunately depending on your preference.

No stall, Let's see what were the choices of ’ Academy and commentiamole together.

OUTSTANDING DRAMA: Better Call Saul, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Homeland, House of Cards, Mad Men, Orange Is the New Black. The big news is undoubtedly Better Call Saul, spin-off/prequel Breaking Bad, welcomed warmly by critics and audiences, cosa che già lasciava intuire la possibilità della nomination, especially considering the undeserved ’ favoritism whose mother series has always enjoyed. Like every year, Downton Abbey maintains its position firmly between the nominated, Despite a season below the previous; the same applies to Mad Men, arrived at the end finally. Worthy of note Orange Is the New Black, This year ’ concurs as drama and not as comedy, Thanks to the new rules established by the Television Academy and, come sempre, The Americans that is incomprehensibly ignored. Obviously also appointed Game of Thrones, Although now we learned that hope in victory is a lost cause from the start.

LEAD ACTOR IN A DRAMA: Kyle Chandler (Bloodline), Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), Kevin Spacey (House of Cards). In this category seem to repeat the same comments every year: Jeff Daniels and Jon Hamm receive prior nominations, even if they only mute scenes throughout the season, blowing the place to whoever deserves it and if you are always snubbed, first of all Matthew Rhys (The Americans) and Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex).


LEAD ACTRESS IN A DRAMA: Claire Danes (Homeland), Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder), Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Robin Wright (House of Cards). There are undoubtedly the big three absent: Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex) e soprattutto Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), replaced by the new generation; of the latter, the only ’ that we hoped was Viola Davis, unsurpassed as Justin Keating. Several complaints have been heaped on the web for no ’ Taylor Schilling and Kerry Washington: the first could be d ’ agreement, the second would say that has restored the natural order of things ’. Candidacy for the surprise protagonist of Orphan Black, that goes as well to satisfy all fans of the series who has long hoped that his merits were recognised.

SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA: Jonathan Banks (Better Call Saul), Ben Mendelshon (Bloodline), Jim Carter (Downton Abbey), Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Michael Kelly (House of Cards), Alan Cumming (The Good Wife). Arouse concerns the nomination of Michael Kelly, given that his was the most useless storyline of season 3 of House of Cards, and the absence of ’ Mandy Patinkin for Homeland. Sounds a little’ a SOP of candidacy Peter Dinklage, that remains our favorite, non ha avuto un ruolo di primo piano in Game of Thrones compared with other seasons; It will be a way to excuse of non-victories in recent years?


SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA: Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black), Christine Baranski (The Good Wife). Finally, a category that gives satisfaction! Joanne Froggatt is undoubtedly a favorita, especially after winning at the Golden Globes, but the performance of Lena Headey in the fifth season of Game of Thrones was superb.

OUTSTANDING COMEDY: Louie, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, Silicon Valley, Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Veep. Without doubt the favorite is the Amazon signed, But despite many rumors to the contrary here continue to cheer for Modern Family. Can't explain Veep, but the worst thing is the lack of ’ The Big Bang Theory (that is always the comedy with the ratings pretty much higher in history). Does not pass the scrutiny of the Academy even ’ Jane The Virgin: the surprise victory at the Golden Globes is not enough to take the plunge and the Emmys are only a mirage; rightly, in our opinion.


LEAD ACTOR IN A COMEDY: Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), Louis C. K.. (Louie), Don Cheadle (House of Lies), Will Forte (Last Man on Earth), Matt LeBlanc (Episodes), William H. Macy (Shameless), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent). Tambor and Strong are the main new features, But despite this there seems to be an unconvincing category: where the hell is Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory)??

LEAD ACTRESS IN A COMEDY: Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Lisa Kudrow (The Comeback), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer), Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie). Potrebbe essere la volta buona per Amy Poehler, considerando il tanto atteso successo ai Golden Globes, ma di recente sembra che nessuna possa competere con Amy Schumer. Mancano, instead, Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly) and Lena Dunham (Girls).

SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY: Andre Braugher (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Adam Driver (Girls), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Ty Burrell (Modern Family), Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Tony Hale (Veep). Sarebbe stato strano fare posto a due pilastri della categoria come Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family)?

SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY: Niecy Nash (Getting On), Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Allison Janney (Mom), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live), Emma Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Gaby Hoffmann (Transparent), Jane Krakowski (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Anna Chlumsky (Veep). Virtually no innovation compared to the 2014, but as the year ’ feel the lack of Sofia Vergara. Emma at Bialik is confirmation that we remember of ’ existence of The Big Bang Theory.


OUTSTANDING LIMITED SERIES: American Crime, American Horror Story: Freak Show, The Honorable Woman, Olive Kitteridge, Wolf Hall.

LEAD ACTRESS IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOVIE: Felicity Huffman (American Crime), Jessica Lange (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Queen Latifah (Bessie), Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Honorable Woman), Frances McDormand (Olive Kitteridge), Emma Thompson (Sweeney Todd). The Golden Globe victory would give to favored Maggie Gyllenhaal, though the Emmy ’ would be the best way to say goodbye Jessica Lange After the farewell to ’ American Horror Story!

LEAD ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOVIE: Timothy Hutton (American Crime), Ricky Gervais (Derek Special), Adrien Brody (Houdini), David Oyelowo (Nightingale), Richard Jenkins (Olive Kitteridge), Mark Rylance (Wolf Hall).


SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOVIE: Regina King (American Crime), Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Kathy Bates (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Mo’Nique (Bessie), Zoe Kazan (Olive Kitteridge). The fourth season of the show by Ryan Murphy dominates the category with three appointed; good will for Sarah Paulson?

SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES OR MOVIE: Richard Cabral (American Crime), Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Michael Kenneth Williams (Bessie), Bill Murray (Olive Kitteridge), Damian Lewis (Wolf Hall). Dopo Homeland Damian Lewis riguadagna una nomination, but that's why we welcome most is that of Finn Wittrock, will the Dandy's center stage?

And for those interested, You can find the ’ list of nominations in all other categories.

GUEST ACTOR IN A DRAMA: Alan Alda (The Blacklist), Michael J Fox (The Good Wife), F. Murray Abraham (Homeland), Reg. Cathey (House of Cards), Beau Bridges (Masters of Sex), Pablo Schreiber (Orange Is the New Black).

GUEST ACTRESS IN A DRAMA: Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones), Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards), Cicely Tyson (How To Get Away With Murder), Allison Janney (Masters of Sex), Khandi Alexander (Scandal), Margo Martindale (The Americans).

GUEST ACTOR IN A COMEDY: Mel Brooks (The Comedians), Paul Giamatti (Inside Amy Schumer), Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live), Louis C. K.. (Saturday Night Live), Bradley Whitford (Transparent), Jon Hamm (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).

GUEST ACTRESS IN A COMEDY: Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Pamela Adlon (Louie), Elizabeth Banks (Modern Family), Joan Cusack (Shameless), Christine Baranski (The Big Bang Theory), Tina Fey (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt).

OUSTANDING TV MOVIE: Agatha Christie’s Poirot — Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case, Bessie, Grace of Monaco, Hello Ladies: The Movie, Killing Jesus, Nightingale.

This year ’ l ’ waiting to see who the winners will be a little’ longest, and considering the nominations not particularly exciting we just have to hope for a nice evening of television, conducted for the first time since Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Saturday Night Live).
