    i watch almost all the shows nominated in best drama series category. all the shows in that category are amazing. is it the americans or mr robot or house of cards, or better call saul. all are amazing.

    just look at the nominees for best lead actress and best lead actor in a drama series, every single one of these actors are so deserving.

    I love viola davis so much but I hope tatiana maslany from orphan black wins this year. Im still amazed about how she plays 10 different characters so easily like its no big deal.
    and as for best lead actor, I love kevin spacey and bob odinkirk (better call saul) but I pray rami malek wins. mr robot is the best tv series of 2016. rami malek is so cute and dreamy and odd.the way he talks,so adorable. he looks like bruno mars. he is egyptian so that makes his an African man.

      Bruno, stoppet jor. Viola davis is bae. She was so controlling and wonderful in that series. More than Kerry in scandals.

      Abeg chop knuckle jare, Tatiana has been amazingly underrated for far too long, deserves the win.

      Black-ish has to win best comedy.

    For Comedy Series, hands-down, “Silicon Valley”! Each character is simply genius in their delivery. Drama Series; Viola Davis for the win! ?????

    Sherlock Holmes should win any award he was nominated for.

    It’s probably “politically incorrect” to say this but Taraji P. Henson should not be nominated. That last season of Empire was lame as hell. Even Taraji’s “acting” could not save that mess.

    William H. Macy good job on last season of shameless, Liev deserves to be up there.

    Game of Thrones for the win, although I have a really soft spot for Downton Abby.
    Is it me or does it feels like the academy keeps on nominating the good wife and transparent to fill some kind of quota. Very overrated shows in my opinion.

    Mr. Robot is a really good show. I hope Malek wins his category.

    And I see RuPaul is nominated for hosting his reality show. He probably won’t get it but it’s nice that he is recognized.

    OITNB was not nominated why?

      The Good Wife isn’t overrated…more like underrated

    They have to throw in the complimentary black show. How is blackish even nominated for anything, common now. Game of thrones all the way , I love downton Abby but they’ve won enough awards over the years .

    Double nomination for Sarah Paulson who was formidable in AHS: Hotel and The People vs O.J Simpson, stiff one for best supporting (drama) as those GOT women held their own, any of the black-ish guys should win for comedy, they’ve been consistently good.

    How come Power wasn’t nominated for anything?

    • Anonymous

      July 15, 2016 at 12:51 pm

      Because Power is shit. People just like it because it’s sexy and thrilling with even sexier black people. I even prefer Empire’s corny plot to Power. Plus I hate anything cheating or adultery so it’s a win-win for me

    How I wish #HTGAWM can get more nominations.Especially the technical team….The picture and camera angles in that show are too superb.The intrigues and twists are only for smart and open minded people.This show taught me what my school has not taught me about law and human rights.

    Team How to get away with murder all the way!.
