Well……who knew that the most popular category would be the Mini-Series/TV Movie category. This is beyond a very strange list of nominees for me. Don’t get me wrong the Mini-Series/TV Movie category is on point. Looks like True Detective decided to submit as a mini-series after they couldn’t clean up the big awards at the Emmys. But watch out, Fargo and The Normal Heart are not to be underestimated.

The Drama Actresses nominated were the typical nominees. No dark horses. No underdogs. A whole lot of yawning. And The Drama Actors? Yes, the entire category seems a little empty without Bryan Cranston there but what in the world? I have given up hope that Andrew Lincoln will ever be nominated for any award. But Jon Hamm? Steve Buscemi? Timothy Olyphant? Hugh Bonneville? And what on earth does Matthew Rhys have to do to get a nomination around here??

And don’t get me started on Comedy. For the comedic actors, I will say I am quite happy with the nominees. At least the Golden Globes have given up on their fascination with Jim Parsons. Maybe Louis CK will finally win one!

But comedic actresses?? I know it’s far-fetched to think the brilliant Mindy Kaling would be nominated but they didn’t nominate Amy Poehler? This is an outrage. She’s obviously good enough on TV for the HFPA to continually ask her to host the show over and over again. And can someone tell me what in the world Jane the Virgin is doing anywhere near this list? Did I miss something? Also where is reigning champion Brooklyn Nine Nine? This is ridiculous.
