    So happy to see Orange is the New Black on the list! It's definitely my favorite comedy, though at this point it's really more of a drama, but I'm not complaining!

    Would anyone care to add ORPHAN BLACK nominations to this group, while taking out a corresponding number from the official list?

    That's the only thing that bothers me; Julianna Margulies is in there, and Tatiana Maslany isn't. What the hell?

    I'd like Veep to win in every nomination it has, the third season was their best.

    Because Julianna Margulies did a marvelous job this past season? If anyone should be removed from that category, it should be Michelle Dockery.

    I read it leads the list of SNUBS?
    A Canadian production.
    Critics seem to like it though it got picked up for a third season.

    I'm glad Michelle Dockery was nominated again. I absolutely love Downton Abbey and Lady Mary (played by Michelle Dockery) is my favorite character along with Anna Bates (played by Joanne Froggatt). I'm very happy that they were both nominated! Now if only actors from my other favorite show, The Walking Dead, were nominated as well!!!

    I'll be honest, I just don't get some of the categories. American Horror Story, Fargo, and True Detective are all limited series that change casts and storylines each year (even though AHS keeps some actors, particularly Jessica Lange, albeit as a different character each season). Yet AHS: Coven and Fargo are up for Best Miniseries, but True Detective is up for Best Drama Series? Is it just because the latter is on HBO? And the (shortened) fourth and final season of HBO's Treme is a miniseries? And a single episode of Sherlock is a TV-movie?

    Please, someone, explain. Or should I just learn to stop worrying and love the Emmys? :p

    They are allowed to choose which category they submit in, so HBO chose to submit True Detective in Drama, which has a bit more prestige than Miniseries, while FX submitted Fargo and AHS: Coven in Miniseries, which is less competitive.

    You have to have a certain number of episodes to qualify as a regular series. Treme and Sherlock fall below that.

    Regarding the drama series vs. miniseries thing, the rule is that if you have a stable creative team (and, in American Horror Story's case, a lot of recurring cast) you are by default considered a series, and if you want to be considered as a miniseries (arguing that the plots, characters, etc. are completely different each year) you have to argue for an exemption. American Horror Story does that; True Detective did not, as they want to go for gold (whereas AHS knows it would never even be nominated, let alone win, anything in the regular categories).

    And as usual, no sci-fi show is nominated. Oh well, I guess I'm not missing anything by not seeing the Emmys as usual.

    As much as I came to dislike several of the characters, this past season of The Good Wife was utterly brilliant. The fact it didn't score nominations in the writing and drama categories demonstrates how worthless awards shows in general - and the Emmys in particular - are. I suppose at least they got the acting nominations right.
