Sunday 8:00 PM on CBS

The greatest award that can ever be bestowed upon a person is World's Best Boss. The second best is a Teen Choice Award. But after those two, it is definitely an Emmy, the television equivalent of popedom. A very few select television types received the good news this morning that they are on the shortlist to compete for one, which is a very longwinded way of saying that the 2014 Emmy nominations have been announced.

And because this is the Emmys, that shortlist contains the usual lot of familiar faces. It's like Emmy voters make their decisions based on whether they've heard of a person or not. "Oh that's a recognizable name, I'll vote for that person," is the Emmy voters' mantra. Sigh. Oh well. The Emmys are here to make us complain if nothing else.

I am happy that Game of Thrones has a couple of nods, but seriously there were some EPIC episodes that should have been acknowledged.
SIgh no sci-fi or fantasy shows get a nod - what a surprise... NOT!!
Seriously there are some pretty awesome shows out there and once again they focus on the same shows over and over and over...

God, most of these are the most boring choices. This season of Downton was terrible, this season of Modern Family was blah and Big Bang Theory is no longer as good as it has been in the past (it's not bad, but it's not been exciting). Also I will literally start to cry if Julie Bowen wins another Emmy.
Peter Dinklage definitely did deserve the nomination, but so did Charles Dance and Dean Norris, and several other actors who are always ignored. Sigh.

All I'm hoping is that Benedict Cumberbatch finally wins an Emmy.

I just blinked back my tears for Tatiana Maslany, Charles Dance, Mads Mikkelsen and Pedro Pascal since I think they really deserve the nominations more than 90% of the people there. The only happy thought about this is Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Jim Parsons and Sarah Paulson. I'm quite torn with Bryan Cranston. Lastly, the "guest actresses" of OITNB, I watch the show and you guys are part of the main cast *rolls eyes*

ZZZZZZZ! The usual boring list of repeats and reruns. What about Rupaul and the RPDrag Race being nominated for best reality host and reality series. The Critics Choice was more current with what the real taste of good TV was. The Emmy is going the way of the Grammy....boring safe boring predictable boring political. Definitely watching it -NOT!

Forgot to add: Hannibal is sending a crate of a fava beans to the Emmy committee. He'll bring the Chianti. Bedelia Du Maurier will offer a free pre-supper therapy session where she will stare icily at each member until they confess their nephew is an extra in House of Cards and their brother in law spoon buffer on Downton Abbey. *nods*

In my perfect Emmy world this would happen

Best Drama Actor: Bryan Cranston. Like Duh.
Best Drama Actress: Lizzy Caplan (seriously Masters of Sex is as underrated as The Wire was. Must be the title that puts people off.)
Supporting Drama Actor: Peter Dinklage. Who else?
Supporting Drama Actress: Lena Headey (Do you see a pattern emerging here, Scully?)
Guest Actor Drama: Beau Bridges
Guest Actress Drama: Allison Janney since Bellamy Young didn't make the cut (FOR SHAME!!!)

Orange is the New Black wins everything else because even if S2 didn't kick as much ass as S1 it's still a whole orange jumpsuit above the fray.

And AHS. YOU NEED TO ASK WHY? Lange, Bassett, Bates you Philistines!

I'm dusting my Voodoo dolls out, just so you know.

Seriously? I would love to see the definitions of some of the categories, e.g. Comedy show? Orange, Silicone? No The League? Guess it is just not funny enough! And louie? Its sinking into the abyss of melodramatic boredome! At least they took Nurse Jackie out of this category!!! OHHHH, wait, Edie falco IS a comedy actress! This is a new definition if you watch this show!!!!!
Cheadle is great but is he really a comedy actor in a comedy show????

No, its entertaining to see all the schmooze but most of this is way out in left field. Better get high to compensate!

Hey Emmys: FoCK YOU. Please pardon the language but these nominees are just gross.

EMMY ROSSUM - IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THAT AWFUL TALENTLESS SACK OF HAM MELISSA MCCARTHY (so being fat and obnoxious with no range and no material makes you a Best Actress?), MOMMY AND DADDY BRIBED THE COMITTEE LENA DUNHAM, AND THE SO MONUMENTALLY O-O-O-VERRATED AMY POEHLER - THE FACT THAT THESE THREE TALENTLESS MEDIA WHORES MADE THE LIST AND THE LOVELY TALENTED EMMY ROSSUM DIDN'T WILL KEEP ME WATCHING BETTER THINGS ON CABLE EMMY NIGHT! Please god let Bill Macy win for Best Actor AND RAIL AGAINST THIS INJUSTICE, THIS CRIME. No they'll give that one to their perfect boy who plays the most one-note character in the history of the 23 minute comedy - Jim Parsons. God this show sucks balls. I can't believe I actually teared up about this one. Sorry Emmy, you really really deserved your namesake this year. These people suck.

NO TATIANA MASLANY? Yep, these folks should give it to that block of wood from 'House of Cards' Robin Wright. BETTER ACTRESSES CURRENTLY THE LEADS ON THEIR SHOW (that I watch) THAN 'PRINCESS BUTTERCUP' (whose ain't nothing new except the provider political drama I do watch) - (Number 1 with a bullet) TATIANA MASLANY 'Orphan Black', KERI RUSSELL 'The Americans', KATEY SAGAL 'SoA', RACHEL NICHOLS 'Continuum', ADELAIDE KANE 'Reign' (come on people, CW finally makes good on their promise of television young women can watch with a phenomenal young lead - she's playing the Queen and doing the part justice and Wright is playing a role so tired and stock and BORING), IVANA MILICEVIC 'Banshee', (who submitted as supporting probably because of shit like getting passed over for Robin Wright), EMILY ROSE 'Haven', THANDIE NEWTON 'Rogue', JANET MONGOMERY 'Salem', DIANE KRUGER 'The Bridge', VERA FARMIGA 'Bates Motel', need some more .... how about EVA GREEN 'Penny Dreadful' whose performance on 'Penny Dreadful' was sublime What about the other Canadian shows that co-opted with SyFy that can submit LAURA VANDERVOORT 'Bitten' or ANNA SILK 'Lost Girl'? THE FACT THAT MS. MASLANY DID NOT EVEN GET NOMINATED FOR 'THOSE' BEAUTIFUL CHARACTERS SHE HAS CREATED SHOWS THAT THIS AWARD IS COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS. How can the winner be proud when they weren't competing against THE BEST? Go Lizzie, I guess???

Matthew Rhys 'The Americans' - yeah he sure doesn't deserve to be on the list but Foghorn Spacey does??????

Gotta calm down now. Sorry for bursting out.

BRING BACK THE CABLE ACE AWARDS!

I am with you on many points of your rant. As much as I like Claire Danes and Mandy Patinking of Homeland (for example), this was an awful season, and their performances were short of outstanding. Yet, more Emmy nominations? This would have been a complete mockery if Damian Lewis got another nomination.

I agree on Eva Green in Penny Dreadful. What a performance! But Claire Danes again? I guess some shows are just "shunned", not even considered. At least the Americans got one nomination for guest appearance, but Keri Russell was yet again outstanding this season, ignored again. Ivana Milicevic was submitted as a supporting actress this year, would have been great to get nominated there (she was fantastic in the Truth about the Unicorn episode), instead of, say Lena Headey, whom I do like, but this was not her best season...,

I never thought I'd find someone who loves Shameless, and Emmy Rossum, as much as I did. I'll give you a silver lining: Eva Green wasn't eligible this year because PD only aired three episodes before the deadline, but she has a really good chance of being nominated and possibly winning next year considering she is a Hollywood star.

She was so so robbed of this. And Honestly: Who do you want to see in a dress on Emmy night Poehler (blech...), Dunham (barf), and McCarthy (just put her in a burlap sack) or Emmy Rossum (how beautiful did she look at the TCA's in red?), who has labored in this part year after year - giving something new to praise her for each time we follow Fiona? EMMY just hates shows about poor people because they are scared it could be them.

She was every single bit as robbed as Tatiana Maslany was on the Drama side. This was supposed to be her year, I guess if I had a vote with this sooo lame list, I'd give it to Falco who was brilliant this season as well - just not so much for the laughs she provided - in Jackie's descent to rock bottom storyline.

Emmy Rossum might be the most natural beauty in the world. I don't watch the show, but I'm sure she was robbed, because I agree with what you said about the other bitches, especially Melissa McCarthy.

I never thought The Originals would ever be nominated for an Emmy (and Klaus is my screensaver)... but even more, I never thought they would be nominated for best hairstyle!!! (I guess that one black mow-hawk vamp that Pierce really likes put them over the edge). This literally made me laugh out loud! Here's hoping they win so the show can now be introduced as the Emmy award winning The Originals!!!

No Pedro Pascal for guest actor? WTF!

Also, I love Orange is the new Black as much as everybody else, but what the fuck is up with guest comedy section? Those three actresses were in just about every episode last season and though they aren't billed as regulars, they are treated like regulars. Then again, I don't watch too many comedies so I can't complain too much, but it's just odd.

Weird that the shortened title on the main page says Fargo and Breaking Bad are the highlights, when Game of Thrones had more nominations than either -- or any other show on television.

Obviously the biggest and most unjust snub was for Tatiana Maslany, who deserved not only the nomination, but the WIN!

And, of course, Charles Dance and Pedro Pascal from Game of Thrones.

Wow. I watch almost none of the shows nominated. I guess if you are known for being a movie star, you will automatically get nominated for a TV role. I'm not saying they're not good actors, but it just seems silly to me. I'm on board with the Good Wife noms and Andre Braugher, but don't care about the rest.

Could someone explain to me the criteria to distinguish Supporting roles from Guest roles? Is it the number of episodes the show up? Is there a minimum/max or something like that?

Contracts. If you're listed as guest actor in the credits, you're a guest actor. If you're in the main credits/series regular status, you're eligible for Lead or Supporting depending on how you want to play it for the awards.

As to your question about a minimum/max: Nope. Kate Mara's nomination is all the evidence you'll need for that.

And I'll note even in the case of billing/credits, it comes down to contracts, too, as Natasha Lyonne is billed up front -- fairly certain -- but she put herself in guest, so weird contract thing possibly happening.

I don't think the Emmys have a criteria to destinguish Guest Actors and Supporting Actors, same as they don't have one to differentiate a Miniseries from a series. It has more to do how a show or actors submit themselves for consideration, also how big the cast is in a show. Look at Orange Is the New Black, its got a pretty large cast so they probably can't afford to have every actor as regulars. So actors or actresses that appear in every episode are credited as guest actors and have to submit themselves as guest actors.

How can they miss the BIGGEST TREE in the whole fucking forest. They are scared of her because none of them have done what she is doing. No one has worked the hours for a television role that she has. If she wins it, the bar gets very high and they just want to keep doing the same thing OVER AND OVER AND OVER again.

I'll get started on Tatiana Maslany! because I can't not. She played SEVEN DIFFERENT CHARACTERS and not even one of them was nominated?!
Sometimes she played them playing each other! At one point she played one acting like the other acting like her husband!
Tatiana doesn't need the statue when she could probably play the statue and do a better job.

Being the steaming pile of self-congratulatory horse shit that are award shows it makes no difference who wins or is nominated,but to put four shows that aren't comedies in comedy categories is very confusing.OITNB,House of Lies,Shameless and Nurse Jackie are all excellent shows containing comedic elements but are far from being comedies.

I hope Breaking Bad takes it home. I tried to get into Fargo, but it felt like an inferior Breaking Bad. Game of Thrones was also superb this season. True Detective was alright, but too slow and dialogue heavy for me.

Hannibal, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones were my favorite shows of this year.

I think the time line for the Emmys is from June 1st 2013 to May 31st 2014, it kind of covers the Semptember-May period and the summer tv period before it.

The latter, I think is from the time the previous noms came out or thereabouts. September is definitely included and maybe August too.

It's June 2013 to May 31st 2014. But there are weird exceptions. For example, all of Game of Thrones S4 was eligible even though some eps aired after June 1. And Penny Dreadful was not eligible despite airing three eps before June 1. Hence, no outrage over no Eva Green, and Neil Marshall got a directing nomination for Watchers on the Wall and The Children got nominated for best writing.

I feel like Allison Tolman should compete in lead actress in a miniseries instead of support, but alright. I also feel like Woody Harrelson would have a way better time in support. (And it should be in miniseries.)

And the Emmy's have the same problem as every year, not enough acceptance of the scifi/fantasy genres, (Game of Thrones being the major exception) too many people being nominated due to being bigger names, (Melissa McCarthy..) and too many repeats from earlier years. (Did Homeland, Downton Abbey, Modern Family or AHS: Coven really deserve any nominations this year?)
