Emmys

Of course, like with any awards show, there are winners and also losers. Here are a look at some nominees who have never won.

Parks and Recreation

Amy Poehler has received 7 nominations so far (two for Saturday Night Live, and five for Parks and Recreation). Could this year be her year? Probably not.

Here are my picks for the Emmy’s if I had it my way. Some of these actors, actresses and shows weren’t even nominated, but what the hay, the real Emmy’s are still two days away.

Today let’s look at the nominees for Actress in a Comedy:

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series

Lena Dunham (Girls)

Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly)

Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie)

Taylor Schilling (Orange Is The New Black)

Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreations)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)

Some interesting points to note:

  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus has won for the past two years, and is the frontrunner to win again this year.
  • Amy Poehler has been nominated for the past four years. Could fifth time be the charm?
  • In 2010, Edie Falco was the first woman to win for leading roles on both comedy and drama series – she won Best Actress for “The Sopranos” back in 1999, 2001, and 2003.
  • Lena Dunham is also a regular nominee but is yet to win. She has also been nominated for writing, direction and producing the show “Girls”.
  • Melissa McCarthy is back in the nominees after missing out last year.

Snubs:

  • I would have liked to see a nomination for Lisa Kudrow for Showtime’s “Web Therapy”.  Hopefully next year she can win for “The Comeback”!
  • Many thought Mindy Kaling of “The Mindy Project” would receive a nomination this year.

Who will win: 

  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Who should win:

  • Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black). I freaking love this show so I want anyone from it to win, pretty much. OITNB is more of a dramedy than a comedy as such, but she is great in the role.

Tomorrow – Best Supporting Actor/Actress Drama

Today I have a look at the nominations for Best Actor in a Comedy Series:

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series

Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) (TV2)

Ricky Gervais (Derek) (Doesn’t screen in NZ yet, that I am aware at least)

Matt LeBlanc (Episodes) (SOHO)

Don Cheadle (House of Lies) (Four)

Louis C.K. (Louie) (Comedy Central)

William H. Macy (Shameless) (TV2)

A category with a lot of talent is the Lead Actor in a Drama Series. And the nominees are:

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series – 

Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, FOUR)

Kevin Spacey (House of Cards, TV3)

Jon Hamm (Mad Men, SOHO)

Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom, SOHO)

Matthew McConaughey (True Detective, SOHO)

Some interesting points to note:

  • Jeff Daniels is the defending champ in this category.
  • Bryan Cranston has won Best Actor in a Drama three previous times for his portrayal of Walter White.
  • If he won this year, he would equal the record for most Best Drama Actor wins.
  • Matthew McConaughey won this years Critics’ Choice TV Award for his role as Rust Cohle in True Detective.
  • Woddy Harrelson has been nominated for seven Emmy’s, and won in 1989 for Comedy Supporting Actor for his role in Cheers.
  • John Hamm has been nominated for 11 Emmy’s, and has won…zero.
