So glad Taraji got nominated. I think Empire should have been nominated too, but oh well. Taraji totally deserves to win!

Taraji is good but Tatiana Maslany deserves the award for her amazing portrayal of 7 — and counting — very different characters on ORPHAN BLACK.

EMPIRE is entertaining but its writing doesn’t come anywhere near the complexity and intelligence of THE AMERICANS which didn’t earn a Best Show nod. Best Show is about being the best, not the most popular.

The most disappointing thing is that THE AMERICANS didn’t earn nominations for Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys.

Much deserving nomination to Taraji P. Henson. Not overly surprised Empire got snubbed The voters don’t usually nominate pop culture,they look for shows much darker

Downton Abbey is the highest rated show and it gets very little. WHAT ABOUT Fellows he made the show great , his ending on a high note is probably the way to go. I will miss the show. The emmy’s are a joke. Same people all the time. isn’t there any talent any where else, same old same old. That is why I don’t watch them.

Here, here, Janet! Downton was absolutely robbed! And what about Dame Maggie Smith? The fact that Dowager Countess Violet wasn’t nominated this year is a complete travesty….ditto for Michelle Dockery’s Lady Mary and Phyllis Logan’s Mrs. Hughes. These formidable ladies make the whole show for me!
