    I'm still behind in a few of the shows or gave up on some of them, but I find this list to be... meh. I've seen worse but there have been better fields. At least GOT and VEEP are done so all those spots can be filled with new people next year. I've said it before, but the Emmys get stagnant and nominate the same people year after year and those people aren't always the best of the year. It's refreshing when there are new people for new roles/new shows. Seeing Nailed It nominated brought tears to my eyes. Nicole is just such a bundle of fun that I love that people can see it. And how long has Niecy Nash been in stuff and finally getting some recognition? I can't remember if Schitt's Creek or The Good Place got nominated last year, but it warms my cold dead heart to see them, ESPECIALLY because they're not Netflix or HBO shows.

    So pleased to see Emilia Clarke acknowledged for her superlative work in the last season of Game of Thrones. Conversely, the only thing Kit Harington should have been nominated for was Best Portrayal of Man with Stubbed Toe. I love JLD, but this should be Rachel Brosnahan's year for best comedy actress. Although, much like Game of Thrones, I see that they decided to nominate that show's worst performance (Alex Borstein) as well.

    I’m bummed to see Homecoming get snubbed. Along with the crew, both Julia Roberts and Stephan James deserved nominations.

    I really hope Amy Adams wins for Sharp Objects but she probably won’t because she never gets the recognition she deserves.

    Really happy to see Bodyguard and Sharp Objects nominated.

    And that lead actress in a comedy category is a line up of amazing. I do hope Catherine O'Hara gets it, but I'd be happy with any one of them, to be honest. But Amy Adams better win, as that performance in Sharp Objects was one of my favourite tv performances of the year. Richard Madden should have been nominated for his work in Bodyguard too - instead of Kit's meh performance in GOT.

    I think Lena is absolutely the greatest but she really wasn't given material worthy of her talent this season. The other three got to do much stronger work. I'm with you on Sophie and Maisie.

    For all my issues with the final season, I hadn't thought about that, but damn, you're so right.
