    Excellent point. 'Westworld' is interesting but a big sloppy mess. 'This Is Us' is an overwroght soap.

    House of Cards hasn't been good since season 2, really. Westworld was at least ambitious, and at times thrilling television.

    Every one of these is deserving.

    Modern Family is barely a shadow of its former self anymore, but Phil (Ty Burrell) is still worth watching.

    But the Emmy's jumped the shark with the "variety" category. No, I'm not getting into an argument about it or explaining it. Just stating an opinion and moving on.
    I'm starting to understand why so many women feel negatively toward males. I had always assumed that the predators made up a small fraction of male-kind, but I may have been wrong. When you impose yourself on an unwilling target, you do great harm to both sexes. Time to grow up, boys.

    Easily the most compelling new show I've seen since Lost last decade.

    I normally avoid "soaps" like the plague, but we couldn't get enough of TIU. I'm even watching some of the repeats this summer, it's that good.

    The episode "Memphis" was one of the best things I've ever seen, TV, movies, any decade.

    I don't pay a lot of attention to the Emmys. Do the series nominate their candidates for the different categories? I'm really surprised that Michael McKean didn't get nominated from BCS. I love Jonathan Banks, and he was excellent again this year, but Michael McKean was flat out amazing and considering the arc of his character as it closed out the year I assumed he'd have to be the one nominated for that.
    Eff LBD!

    I know you don't want to debate so I'm not expecting a reply. I just don't understand the issue. With the vast number of content providers and variety of show-types now included/eligible for Emmy's, it seems that separating out the different type of talk/sketch/whatever shows is a good way to acknowledge the assortment of shows out there. Now, if they nominate themselves for one (including the director category - I think I saw the Oscars director was nominated and I'd say any award show nomination is pushing it) then I'll be right with you.

    I agree with every word of that.

    I'm still scratching my head at award show love for "Master of None." Not a bad show, but very inconsistent. While a few episodes--especially the ones where they deal with older people--are rich with insight, sentiment, and humor, others (most, in fact) are fairly ordinary, cliche, and forgetful.

    Best male and female performances I've seen of any type this past year were Michael McKean in "Better Call Saul," and Jessica Lange as the aging Joan Crawford in "Feud." At least one of the two got recognized.

    For some more hyperbole, forget all the nominations, they're pointless, only one matters...

    John Turturro should be a mortal lock and don't even bother with the rest of the Emmys. Nothing else was even close. Dedicate the whole show to his performance

    Jonathan Banks is a wonderful actor. But it seems Mike somewhat faded into the background in the last part of season 3. Meanwhile, Michael McKean's performance was beyond brilliant. Given that he is primarily known for comedy, McKean has seriously good dramatic chops.

    Big miss on this one.
    I ain't quiet, everybody else is too loud.

    This year’s Emmy nominations were announced this morning and Odenkirk and Banks were once again honored with nods, but there was one glaring omission from Saul‘s haul: Michael McKean.

    Where McKean’s name presumably should have appeared in the ‘Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series’ category was Banks’ instead – and frankly, this is wrong. This is not a dig at Banks; he is undoubtedly one of the show’s strongest performers, but this season was a platform for McKean’s breathtaking performance as Chuck McGill, the mentally ill older brother of Odenkirk’s morally-conflicted protagonist. This might be bold to say but it’s certainly not an overstatement: McKean delivered the best performance on television this year.

    McKean, perhaps best known for his comedic turns in This Is Spinal Tap, Best in Show, and Laverne & Shirley, stunningly managed to manifest a complex, frustrating, humorless man in Charles McGill as soon as we met him in Saul‘s first season. Convinced he’s plagued by an electromagnetic sensitivity, he holes himself up in his powerless home, frantically telling any visitors to ensure that they leave anything with an electric charge outside of the house. While his arc in the show’s first two seasons largely sparked a fickle audience reaction and left him standing in a villain’s shoes, Chuck’s development over the course of Saul‘s recently concluded third season is absolutely astonishing – and that is all thanks to the heart-stopping dedication of Michael McKean.

    Hard to understand McKean not being nominated.

    I'm sitting here trying to imagine caring who gets nominated and/or wins an Emmy. Baffling. Is that the same as an Espy?
