    Go Orphan Black! Tatiana Maslany has got to be THE hardest working woman on television right now. She plays like six different rolls on that show and does a great job.

  • Five

    Go Tatiana Maslany (and Orphan Black)! No one deserves an aware more than her this year.

  • Troy J.

    Fox news is the most watched news network, and they do not even get a nod. Media Bias is alive and well, even with the TCA. How very sad, and to have Cooper and Madcow on the list is just insulting.

  • Lisbeth Slander

    WOW! I never thought I’d see the day that Bryan Cranston would be facing off against Monica Potter! Seems like an Emmy nod will be a slam dunk for her this year. It’s great to see Parenthood finally getting some recognition.

  • meah

    Orphan Black!!!Tatiana mansaly is hands down the best actress on tv right now..hope she wins!!

  • Nick

    Finally, Parenthood gets some recognition. And I’m glad Monica Potter is the one to do it – she deserves it.

    Also, no Modern Family in comedy? I’m shocked. Looks like the downfall for that show has begun.

  • sue

    Pleasantly surprised to see Jake Johnson! Well deserved.

  • Kunz
