There are many storylines to this year’s awards:

The nominations for many categories, especially “Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series” has trended towards, darker, more antihero roles. No longer is it just the feel-good great character role models that get nominated; we have the fair share of psychopaths and evil minds that populate the lists.

Black actresses also struggle, it’s been 29 years since one won in the comedy category, and there was an 18-year gap when black actresses didn’t even get nominated. We’re not sure if it’s a problem for the Emmys or a problem for Hollywood in general.

“Mad Men” can make Emmy history two separate ways: a fifth award means it will set a record in its category and will put it among the few dramas that have won an award for their final season (voter fatigue is real people). “The Colbert Report”, “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Parks and Recreation” are also seeking awards for their final seasons.

“HBO” is the most nominated network with 40 nominations, 26 more than ABC in second. “American Horror Story: Freak show” has 8 nominations as the most-nominated program.

Last year Seth Meyers was the host, this year it will be comedian and Emmy award winner Andy Samberg, the star of the sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” on Fox. When interviewed post-reveal, he said “Buckle your seat belts, Emmy viewers! Like, in general, you should buckle your seat belts in your car. In fact, even if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should buckle your seat belt. It can be dangerous on the road. Also, if you’re not an Emmy viewer, you should strongly consider becoming one this year, because I’m hosting, and it’s gonna be a wild ride. So buckle your seat belts.” Interesting take, but he should be a great host (even though he’s an internal nomination).

 

With many of our favorite shows, performances, actors and actresses all in one place it’s a great chance to see the real people behind the media that we all love. Remember, September 20th, 8e/5p.
