How the hell is The Big Bang Theory even considered? Especially over Parks and Rec? What mad world have I awoken in?

Big Bang Theory tells predictable one-off jokes to a laugh track about pop culture nerd stereotypes.

Parks and Recreation focuses on modern original character development and insightful political satire.

Of course Big Bang Theory gets more recognition.

Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

I was also surprised to see Emilia Clarke on there. She's okay in the part but nothing close to a stand out. I find the character to be interesting but that's down to the writing and pretty much nothing to do with Clarke.

Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

I'm rooting for 30 Rock (R.I.P. ) for comedy, and Mad Men or House of Cards for drama.

I'm a Downton Abbey fan as well, but it's really just a trashy soap opera masquerading as a sophisticated drama.

I don't think it's such a great idea to split up cable and broadcast into separate categories. The big networks just need to step up their game.

The same one you fell asleep in, it's been nominated before.

Meh, haven't thought the Emmy nominations have had it together in years. They need to really break up the Outstanding Drama/Comedy/Actor/Actress categories into Broadcast/Basic Cable & Premium Channels/Netflix.

So many great shows and performers never get the respect they deserve because the Emmys are waaaaaaay behind the modern times.

People always ask me, why I don't watch it anymore. If I don't care who wins because I don't care about the nominees, why waste the time?
Didn't cable television have their own awards at one point ? Lets bring back the CableACE Awards ! I hope Jon Hamm finally wins - his acting this season wouldn't be what I consider the best he's done on "Mad Men" but his conference room speech on the last episode this season was bravura... I hope Robert Morse wins too ... He always gives nuanced performances with what little he gets to do...

Aw, I was just about to say this is my favorite comedy and I hope it wins. Or Modern Family, I love that show as well.

Honestly I think that there are a lot of great comedies out there right now, particularly on broadcast networks. They've been really crappy for the past decade or so, but since 2010 I think the pool has improved dramatically.

Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

The fact that they completely ignored Hannibal, with neither Hugh Dancy nor Mads Mikkelsen getting a nomination, is enough to make these nominations a complete joke.

Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

The Emmy noms have been a joke for years, but sadly like a lot of the nominees for outstanding comedy, they're not funny.

The acting on the show is fine, but it's just so boring...

This is the problem with the "THESE names are why it's a joke!" comments.

It's so personal, and most people (not saying you) don't even watch all of the shows that are nominated to give an true opinion. It's usually just people saying "I watch this show, why isn't it up there?"

Except for a few questionable decisions, I have to mostly agree with what's been nominated.

We all have our personal favourites, but that's not what this is about. Otherwise Tony Todd would have gotten many more best guest actor awards!

Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

I think it's not so much that it's personal to individuals, more than it has such a narrow definition of cream of the crop and repeats itself every time.

Basically, it seems like they "discover" a few shows and then stick with them every year, and it's difficult for anything else to break through.

If you changed this to "I watch this show, so it's up there", I think it would probably sum up the way the Emmy nominations come about.

Well, it's not like they aren't willing to drop popular shows once they turn bad. The Emmys dropped 24 and Dexter like a bad habit when those shows went downhill in quality.
