Tatiana Maslany finally gets an Emmy nod, while Jim Parsons doesn't. Not a bad year.

Although I do wish that the OITNB ladies got more nominations. But I can't complain about Emilia Clarke and Lena Headley both getting one. Actually, the whole Supporting Actress in a Drama selections are quite strong.

Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey getting nominations is almost like Emmy tradition by this point, so it's no surprise. Though I feel like we always have at least one other supporting actor or actress from this show who end up getting snubbed to make room for other shows. This is the first time that Emilia Clarke has received a nomination, however, if I'm not mistaken. To be honest, while I've always liked her in the role, I've never viewed it as particularly award-worthy, myself, but I'm still glad for her. At least this should be some consolation for how much damage Terminator: Genisys probably did to her image. That said, I'd argue that Natalie Dormer is a better actress than her, personally.

In terms of directing nominations, I noticed that GOT had two nominations. "Mother's Mercy" by David Nutter makes sense to me, but how the hell did "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" get nominated over "Hardhome" as far as best directing for an episode goes?

On another note, I'm glad to see Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks get well-deserved nominations for Better Call Saul.

Nope, she was nominated back for season 3. I remember because I was disappointed that she got the nom instead of Michelle Fairley. :P

i think Emilia is great, but she's rarely the GOT actress that I most want to win. This year, I would definitely side with Lena, but my most hopeful winner for the award in general has to be Christina Hendricks.

Yeah, Fairley definitely deserved it more, that year.

And personally I'm still bummed out that Charles Dance always got snubbed for his performance in past seasons, and Iain Glen has shown incredibly good emotional range and nuance in recent seasons of the show. That said, I can't complain about Dinklage constantly getting the nominations, because the guy clearly steals every scene that he's in.

GREAT news!

When I learned that the movie rights for Y was returned to BKV last year, I was really hoping that he would take the series to TV. I just don't see it work as a film franchise. It would be hard for it to connect to a big audience in theaters, and we'd only get a fraction of the story as a result.

Television allows for more time to grow, in terms of both finding an audience and as the story expands. But personally, I do wish that this was going to HBO, or even Netflix, so it can get away with a little more. I think FX makes some great programs, but they're a little more limited in terms of what they can get away with.

I'd prefer Netflix..since I have neither FX or HBO but FX gets away with a lot. Hell, from what I've seen, The Shield is more "adult" than Daredevil. But then again I don't know if they've gotten stricter since then. I haven't read Y so I don't know what to expect though.

I wasn't sure where exactly to post this, but in recent news, it looks as though Snowpiercer may be getting a TV series....which is as genuinely intriguing of a concept as it is a flat-out bizarre one.

For those of you who don't know, Snowpiercer is one of the best sci-fi movies of the past few years, and also probably ever. That said, it's a pretty self-contained story that's perfect as a movie, but doesn't exactly scream TV series to me. I mean, what exactly would all of that extra air-time accomplish? Is there really that much more story or character-development to tell or show us?

Since I love the movie, I of course won't outright dismiss the concept. If something great can come out of this, then I'm all for it. I'm just skeptical as to what exactly that might be. Hopefully the showrunners can successfully answer that question, if and when the show ever comes out.

It's, uh, different. I am curious as well, though.

But in good news.

Holy shit, that's a great trailer. I usually try to avoid them, but I needed to see what they're doing with Paige, and I'm curious to see how this year goes for her.
