Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.
This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.
Best Drama Series
The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.
HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).
With a new online voting system, the list of nominees are a bit fresher than usual with a lot of first-time nominees in acting categories, and some notable absentees like network comedy stalwarts "The Big Bang Theory" and Melissa McCarthy in favour of fresher faces such as "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt". There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »

And they're off! Nominations for the 67th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were just announced on Thursday, July 16. "Orange Is the New Black" star Uzo Aduba and "So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley revealed the major nominees, but there are actually a lot more (like for costume design, sound editing, cinematography, etc.) and you can head to the Nominees and Winners page of Emmys.com to check out the very long roundup of nominees.
Here are the announced Emmy nominations:
"Better Call Saul"
Outstanding Actor In A Drama
Bob Odenkirk, "Better Call Saul"
Outstanding Actress In A Drama

After three straight years with four of the six supporting comedy actor slots belonging to "Modern Family," last year finally saw the majority figure cut in half with only Ty Burrell and Jesse Tyler Ferguson making the cut (and Burrell winning). Ed O'Neill and/or Eric Stonestreet could make a comeback, or maybe the "Family" love will reduce further this time around? That all depends on whether Tony Hale ("Veep"), Fred Armisen ("Portlandia"), Adam Driver ("Girls") and/or Andre Braugher ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") can return from last year, and if Martin Sheen ("Grace and Frankie"), Sam Waterston ("Grace and Frankie"), Hugh Laurie ("Veep"), Tituss Burgess ("Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Laurence Fishburne ("Blackish") and/or Josh Gad ("The Comedians") can squeak in for their shows' first seasons (or Hugh Laurie for his first season of "Veep").

I have a bad feeling that Jane the Virgin is about to get royally screwed.
Emmy Nominations will be announced this Thursday at 11:30 am/Est, and my gut is telling me that the sublime freshman comedy — and its sterling ensemble led by Gina Rodriguez —will fall victim to the Academy’s long-held bias against The CW.
I really hope I am wrong.
Only three of last year’s Emmy nominees are missing from the comedy ballots this year (and it’s because all three — “Orange Is the New Black’s” Taylor Schilling and Kate Mulgrew and “Derek’s” Ricky Gervais — are now competing in different categories). Combine that high volume of returning favorites with an influx of buzzy new series, and odds are high there will be a lot of disappointed contenders come Thursday morning. Here’s who we’re predicting will make the very competitive cut. Click to see our picks for those in the running for the drama series categories.
With six consecutive nominations and a record-tying four wins under his belt, “The Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons is this category’s undisputed favorite. But he’ll face heavy competition this year from Jeffrey Tambor, whose transcendent performance in Amazon »

Voting closed for Emmy nominations on Friday. Ordinarily, I would have already completed my usual If I Had An Emmy Ballot exercise by now, but various other projects got in the way, which means what I'm about to post is even more hypothetical than usual, since it's after the voting deadline. As always, I'm working with the choices listed on the actual Emmy ballots, which means I have to go along with where various shows and actors were categorized and submitted. So I have to consider "Orange Is the New Black" a drama, have to consider Key and Peele supporting actors on their own show, and can't go off the ballot to try nominating an actor like Max Greenfield from "New Girl," who didn't even put his name up for submission. Also, while I've done these as a bunch of separate posts the last few years, this thing's already so »

Coming off of a seven-season run as the star of TNT’s “The Closer” in 2012, Kyra Sedgwick returned to television last season with a guest starring role on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” Sedgwick made her “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” debut as deputy chief Madeline Wunch in the second episode of the second season. A longtime rival of Andre Braugher‘s Captain Holt, Wunch set out to destroy the 99th precinct out of spite for having her sexual advances rejected by the gay captain. The dynamic between Wunch and Holt proved to be such a winner, that Sedgwick — originally signed on for just two episodes — went on. »

Andre Braugher’s first Emmy win surprised the actor. His performance in NBC’s “Homicide: Life on the Street” as driven detective Frank Pembleton had garnered notice for years, but an Emmy win for lead actor in a drama series eluded Braugher in 1996. When he took the stage in 1998, he was spotted reaching for a “cheat sheet,” but never pulled it out. Yet the victory was an important one for the actor, who had been nominated for Emmys twice before without a win. Braugher won again in 2006 for a leading role in the FX limited series “Thief,” and received his most recent nomination last year for his supporting role on the Fox comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
How did you feel about your chances the first year you won?
1998 was my last year of “Homicide.” I had left the show at the end of the sixth season and I had been nominated and so that September, »

A hairstylist. A D.C. aide. A community college dean. The characters driving TVLine’s Dream Emmy Ballot for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy couldn’t be more different, but the men who bring them to life are tied together by a common trait: Uncommon talent.

Interestingly enough, though, five of the fellas on our wish list weren’t on the Emmy ballot last year. (Then again, two are from freshman series, and one is from a show that took a nine-year hiatus before its second season — so we can’t »

Ausiello: Borth is staying on as Catherine… at least for a little while, in part because next season will open with the “first dance” at Kono and Adam’s wedding. “We’ll miss the actual vows, but we’ll come in on them being introduced as husband and wife,” showrunner Peter M. Lenkov tells TVLine. As for Borth’s status, »
The Brooklyn Nine-Nine finale had the misfortune of airing against another, more epochal finale this evening, but interestingly enough, this episode equally marked #TheEndOfAnEra for many of the characters in our favorite precinct, with the writers deserving full credit for finally shaking up the board on the show’s increasingly stagnant milieu. Though his unbelievably touching closing speech might have given a few fans cause for concern, Andre Braugher is definitely not leaving the show (thank God), and we’re going to get to see a chunk of next season center around Holt trying to run, and fight his way back from, the NYPD’s public-relations department. (Delightfully, he’ll be joined by Gina, who already understands one major tenant of working with journalists: “Always say your insults to someone’s face. No paper trail!”) I’m proud of the show for painting itself into this challenging corner, especially because »

The following post mortem contains spoilers for the Season 2 finale of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
O Captain, my captain… you got played.
Despite his best efforts to get the upper hand over rival Madeline Wuntch (Kyra Sedgwick) in Sunday’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine season finale, Captain Holt was forced to leave the precinct behind and take a desk job in the NYPD Public Relations Department.
Long story short: After Holt unearthed an incriminating letter that Wuntch once wrote, Wuntch fired back by threatening to make all the 99 cops miserable if Holt showed the letter to anyone— a risk the captain was not willing to take. »
