Contrary to what the title might suggest, I love the Emmys. I stay up all night watching the ceremony, I drink some coke or coffee to stay awake and I silently cheer when my favourite actor wins an award.
That being said, there were things that annoyed me this year. And yes, it is Game of Thrones related.
I also wrote about the shows that, in my opinion, were snubbed this year.
Game of Thrones Has More Nominees than Chernobyl
It’s petty. I know. I should not be annoyed that Game of Thrones has been nominated for more Emmys than Chernobyl: they are both terrific shows but this season of GOT was a disaster and although Chernobyl got 6, I am still irritated that GOT got more.
It’s petty and idiotic, I know but I don’t care.
Us Me Rolling my Eyes
I loved This Is Us. Loved it. I raved about it when season 1 came out, I cried every week like a maniac for 40 minutes.
I won’t start rambling about how season 2 was still great and season 3 kind of annoyed me. The thing is: just because we cry in every episode (in season 3 I barely did.) doesn’t mean it’s good.
I haven’t been able to connect with it and were all the performances worth of Emmy nominations? I’m happy Mandy Moore was FINALLY nominated but it would have made a lot more sense in season 2 for me! She KILLED it in the episode where Jack dies.
I don’t know. Maybe I was a bit pissed off because I did not enjoy the season as much as I thought I would.
Have you seen “Janet(s)”? If so, WHERE IS D’ARCY CARDEN NOMINATION?!
In the episode “Janet(s)” she LITERALLY plays almost the entire cast flawlessly and nobody gave her a nomination. NOBODY.
And this is a 20-minute comedy show! She was terrific and I’m angry.
Game of Thrones Got Nominated for Outstanding Writing…
and we’re done. I guess this came out sounding pretty petty and angry. I don’t know why. I’m just venting. It’s fun.
Any thoughts on the Emmy nominations?
