    James Spader is also in the running for ‘Drama Actor’! Good for him and great news for NBC!

  • Franco

    This looks copied, pasted and reformatted. Cannot believe the author was allowed to publish an article in this state. Can’t make any sense of it.

  • PurpleDrazi

    Wow, looks like the Golden Globes managed to get more right than wrong this year. I hope the Emmys take notice.

    So happy to see Maslany and Schilling on the list. It is sad that more of the ridiculously talented cast of Orange is the New Black weren’t nominated but at this point I’m just happy someone from the show got recognition. It’s a start.

  • jose

    my favorites:
    -jessica lange AHS:coven
    -Big bang jim parsons

  • Franco

    Certainly an improvement on the Emmy nominations anyway. Nothing for 30 Rock, Game of Thrones or Hannibal which is disappointing. Surprisingly nothing for Homeland, although it hasn’t deserved anything since season 1 for me. HBO doing well in the comedy categories with Veep and Girls but Showtime stealing their thunder with Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex in drama. Netflix are going to become a serious headache for both HBO and Showtime very soon I reckon.

  • r0ckmypants

    Surprised Orange is the New Black wasn’t nominated for Best Series.

  • AllOfHerTw!st



    Steve McQueen is alive and directing movies?

  • Andrew21

    No Homeland :/
    Brooklyn nine-nine & Tatiana Maslany!!!

  • Kissan

    Brooklyn 99, The Blacklist, Modern Family, New Girl, TBBT, Scandal, Breaking Bad, Good Wife!!!

    I really hope James Spader and Andy Samberg win!

  • Michael Scott

    Monica Potter?

  • Michael Scott

    Monica Potter?

  • Jeff

    Where in the name of all that is right with the world is The Walking Dead or Andrew Lincoln or Lauren Cohan or Scott Wilson? They give out of this world performances, and just because it’s on a show about the zombie apocalypse, they totally get overlooked year after year.

  • Alecia

    Wow broadcast network got a lot of noms this time. Happy for Kerry and Tatiana

  • OddGuy

    Monica Potter! That’s amazing!

  • Jules


    Yes there is a director named Steve McQueen… Also Elena brother in the vampire diaries is also Steve McQueen he is the grandson of the Steve McQueen you are referring to

    On another note, so excited that Clair Danes was not nominated… Let’s go Kerry you got this! Very excited for James Spader too!

  • Jagger Dagger

    Didn’t realize that The Wolf of Wall Street was a comedy/musical.

  • LOST

    About time Masters of Sex got some recognition.
    Without a doubt, the best new drama of the fall..

  • AP076

    “Founded in the 1940s during World War II, the HFPA was originally comprised of a handful of LA based overseas journalists who sought to bridge the international community with Hollywood, and to provide distraction from the hardships of war through film.

    They fail to mention that the “handful” is now a whopping 90 or so persons.
    Nonetheless they still manage to get some things done better than the peer awards, SAG and Emmy.

    But sometimes they can have horrible misfires in their nominations especially in the movie categories.

    The Michael J Fox nomination is the worst on the list I can find.

    It makes sense that the Emmys recognize supporting actors/actresses in both dramas and comedies and because of the duel focus I can see why The Golden Globes combines the supporting actors into one category ( though at the expense of comedic performers), but I don’t know why the SAGs don’t recognize supporting performances at all. Unless they are making a statement that a performance is a performance.

  • matt K

    hmm…wonder where that troll is when I said that James Spader should get nominated for “The Blacklist”.

  • gigi

    TBBT getting a nomination is always beyond me. How a show this awful may be considered the best comedy on TV? It’s the worst Chuck Lorre show and one of the most emberassing shows to watch.
