Game of Thrones Shows Controversy Equals Emmy Awards

Game of Thrones Shows Controversy Equals Emmy Awards

2015 emmy nominations game of thronesRather than having to be up at the cruel hour of 5:30 a.m PT, this years 2015 Primetime Emmy Award nominations were announced a few hours later after all of us on the East Coast were more caffeinated.  Not surprisingly, HBO’s Game of Thrones swept the nominations with 24, including best drama series while FOX’s ratings juggernaut, Empire, only received three nominations including lead actress Taraji P. Henson.

Both Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson made history as the first time there has been two black women earned nominations for lead actress in a drama series. They are both strong characters in their shows, How to Get Away with Murder and Empire that they both may lose out to split votes. The Emmy nominations are the polar opposite of the Oscar nominations which were lacking in diversity.

Many new shows were able to shine bright this year such as Transparent, Better Call Saul and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt while other stalwarts were left out of the pack including The Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife and Girls. Personally, The Big Bang Theory (aside from Howard’s mom dying episode) didn’t have such a strong season and Girls once again was a frustrating mishmash of good and tedious.

There were several voting changes this year, with the most most notable one being the default categorization of comedies as half-hours and dramas as hourlongs. The move, an acknowledgement of the surging volume of eligible nominees, also prompted the Academy to open up the main drama and comedy races to seven nominees. The new labeling ruffled a few feathers. Netflix was notably denied in its petition to put hourlong Orange Is the New Black in the comedy race, but that didn’t hurt the show. It made a strong move into the new category, joining House of Cards with a best series nomination.

The 67th annual Primetime Emmys will air live on September 20 on FOX and hosted by Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Andy Samberg.
