Emmys: A Look at the Snubs and Winners Prediction
The Emmy nominations were announced on Tuesday. There are too many shows to watch that I don’t understand how they determine what gets nominated. I agree with all the shows that are nominated and don’t want to take anything away from them but there are some shows that should have received a nomination.
You’re The Worst (FX) and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (FX)
FX has consistently put out good show over the past years with little recognition from the Emmys. “You’re The Worst” had its final season in the winter and it ended on a good note that all fans were happy with. It was definitely worthy of nominated in the comedy series. This show wasn’t a typical rom-com as it starred jaded people who came to terms of “loving” each other on their own terms.
It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia has had thirteen successful seasons and only been nominated three times and none of those under any major categories. All the actors have tried other ventures (AP Bio, The Mick, and The Cool Kids) and have failed to an extent so take that as a sign that this show should be on thirteen more seasons.
Doom Patrol (DC Universe)
I was really surprised by this show and the originality. If you look at the trailer, it’s not your run of the mill comic book show. The villain isn’t really a villain as he breaks the fourth wall and is acting as “comic book panel”. The show is highly praised for its acting and the way the characters are handled. My favorite part of the show is Diane Guerrero’s ability to act out multiple people as her character has multiple personalities with each having their own power.
What I Think Will Win
I haven’t seen all the shows like reality and variety talk series, but I have seen all the shows in the major categories. What I think will win is in bold.
