  1. Looks like these nominations are a bit like the Logies. After searching for a reason why Outlander has no nominations, I found endless posts listing shows that were overlooked. Sounds like GoT is the Emmy equivalent of Home and Away – perpetually nominated regardless of competition.

    And, poss, I agree, most of the shows are not appealing to me either. After trying This is Us, I have realised that I just can’t take American style of drama. Too heavy.

    Wow, there’s a lot on that list not even on here. Would really love to see The Americans win some awards for it’s final season. It’s been pretty much ignored. Shocked that Young Sheldon isn’t nominated. I’m sure it’s funnier than half the shows on that list. Hope Viola Davis wins for her guest role in Scandal.
