  1. I know these are the emmy but I like them. There are so much more variation than previous years yes I know Games Of Thrones dominated. There are going to be so many awards that are going to be interesting to see who wins such as lead actress in a comedy Dreyfus VS Brosnahan, Lead Actress in A Drama Oh VS Comer,

  2. Controversies for me:
    No Kristen Bell for The Good Place
    None of the Will & Grace cast (Debra Messing in particular had some powerful episodes)
    Lena Heady – she just scowled a lot

  3. Chernobyl (HBO) plays a lot with the truth! just watch Andrew Bolt interview with the medical team that got there first by request of the Russian President

  4. Lol. Some of these nominations are completely ridiculous. Just a quick example, Lena Heady has about 20 minutes of screen time on the entire final season of Game of Thrones… and barely spoke. Yet she’s nominated…
    The Emmy’s are always so predictable in terms of nominees. It seems to be the same old same old every year, with just a hint of fresh blood every so often… sigh.
