doesn't rely on ridiculousness quite so heavily to make the plotlines work and seems like a sincere attempt to explore human nature under extreme pressure. AHS
doesn't care about any of that, and is just pure sensationalism with no greater goal than tossing one entertainingly sleazy and over-the-top scene at us after another.
But the Globes are notorious for absurd nominations. Amusing rant on the topic
: "a completely meaningless awards show from a scandal-riddled organization on a network desperate for ratings."
Hollywood filmmakers and TV producers who lavishly lobby the HFPA almost always score nominations.
producers probably did some behind-the-scenes finagling to earn their nomination. Since nobody really takes the Globes seriously anyway, I don't begrudge them that. The Globes is like the AHS
of awards ceremonies - pure tripe.
