Why is GOT not on any list this time? Is it due to the transmission date of Season 7?

Well-known Member
Pleased that Big Little Lies getting the acclaim :)
Will have to check out The Handmaid's Tale, think I averted it due to combo of unappealing title & still image I saw not realising it was set in a dystopian future.

Moment of the night it seems was this- Variety on Twitter funny but predictable backlash against him being "normalized"


Distinguished Member
yeah I agree @krish nothing bad about those results really. Would have liked a support actor for Veep to have got a gong, but McKinnon and Baldwin have done some great work on SNL so can't complain really. Obviously their work has been very topical too in recent months.

And why Modern Family still even gets a nomination is beyond ridiculous.


Distinguished Member
One thing I will add is I still Bob Odenkirk deserves one Emmy for Better Call Saul.

Hopefully next year will be his time.

Record broken by JL-D ...
Julia Louis-Dreyfus won a sixth consecutive prize for her portrayal of beleaguered career politician Selina Meyer on HBO’s “Veep.” The win gave Louis-Dreyfus the most Emmys for playing the same character — six — surpassing Candice Bergen (“Murphy Brown”) and Don Knotts ("The Andy Griffith Show”). (It should be noted that after her fifth win in 1995, Bergen took herself out of the running. Helen Hunt then began a four-year streak in 1996 for “Mad About You.”) Louis-Dreyfus’ Emmy, her eighth overall, tied her with Cloris Leachman for most acting victories.

The producers of “Veep” have announced that its next season will be its last, affording Louis-Dreyfus one more opportunity to win for the character and the show.
