share on:

So now that we know who is nominated for the 2014 Primetime Emmy Awards, it is time to rip apart the choices that the academy made and share what nominations shocked me and who/what shows were robbed!

Shockers

Ricky Gervais, Derek
Not that I am not completely over the moon about this nomination, since I believe that Mr. Gervais can do no wrong. I was shocked that Andy Samberg did not get this for Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Silicon Valley, Outstanding Comedy Series
I enjoyed this freshman HBO show but I would have liked to see Parks and Recreation or Brooklyn Nine-Nine take this slot though I am a big supporter of fresh talent being nominated.

Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine
I am just thrilled about this nomination…that is all.

The White Queen, Outstanding Miniseries
I very much enjoyed this British import that aired on Starz last summer ,but in all honestly I was very shocked to see this miniseries listed because I kind of forgot it happened.

Snaps

To all the ladies from Orange is the New Black that were nominated! Snaps ladies and special shout out to Laverne Cox who is the first openly transgendered person to get a Emmy nomination!

Girl Power!

Snubs

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
After all the success Brooklyn Nine-Nine had at the Golden Globes, I thought that this rookie FOX sitcom was a shoe in, boy was I wrong.

Parks and Recreation
I always think that Parks and Rec should be nominated but I thought that last season was the show’s best. I guess the academy did not feel the same.

Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black
Tatiana may not have won the Golden Globe but she was nominated. Come on, the girl plays a lot of clones on this damn show. She should have gotten a nom.

Charles Dance, Game Of Thrones
As we all know by now, this was Dance’s last chance to get a nom for his role as Papa Lannister for GoT. Tywin Lannister was such a captivating and scary character, I am very much shocked that Dance did not get the nom for the series.

James Spader, The Blacklist
My father is very displeased with the fact that me Spader got no respect for his role on The Blacklist…so this shock is for my dad!

The Biggest Snub of the 2014 Primetime Emmys Goes to…

Sophie Turner, Game Of Thrones
If you know me at all then you know that I am a huge Sansa Stark aka Sophie Turner fan. Sansa/Sophie were pure perfection in season 4 of Game Of Thrones and I personally would give this young lady a nomination, maybe even over Lena Headey. One day Sophie Turner, one day!
