Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

How did The Newsroom not get a bajillion nominations? Its politics?

Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

Reviews for the second season have tended to be more positive, but the first season was panned by most critics. Although I like it, it's not hard to take a step back and see why.

Of course, it's worth noting that the Emmys are determined by the TV academy (which is to say, people who make television) not critics, but critics aren't a bad barometer to go by (just not a perfect one).

Just because Aaron Sorkin is involved doesn't mean it HAS to get nominations!

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.
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.
24 is supposed to have been good at some point?

The other thing is that some shows have had multiple seasons in a row in which that show really was the best in it's category. The Sopranos, Mad Men, Seinfeld, Fraizer, The West Wing, all come to mind. True enough the Emmys sometimes misses the expiration date by a season, but I no longer begrudge the multiple winners only because they are multiple winners.

Re: 2013 Emmy Nominations Announced

I liked 24 seasons 1-3 and 5.

Just when our Trek buds Coto and Braga came aboard they decided all characters not named Jack, Kim or Chloe were 100% expendable and started to make the stories more ridiculous and melodramatic.

That certainly applies to Dexter. Dexter was nominated for Best Drama in season five for some reason. Clearly they didn't get the memo that season four was the last good season!

Also once a show stops getting nominated it is extremely hard for it to come back as a nominations contender.

I only watched seasons 1 and 2 and thought it was rubbish. If those are supposed to be the good seasons, then I haven't missed anything by not seeing the rest.

Oh God, they got even more ridiculous and melodramatic? I don't even want to try to imagine that...
