  • ’30 Rock,’ ‘Arrested Development’ among comedy Emmy noms

    Emmy Awards in a RowStreaming video service Netflix is still relatively new to original programming, but they’re off to an amazing start. Their drama House of Cards got nine Emmy nominations, the first time a streaming video service picked up any nominations, and possibly a glimpse at what’s to come in future years. Jason Bateman also picked up an Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series nomination for his role in Arrested Development. Sadly, that was the only major nomination that AD picked up, and marks the first time that the show wasn’t nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series.

    As far as the shows that were, 30 Rock ended its run by picking up nine nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series. The 13 noms are more than any other comedy this year. The other shows garnering nominations included The Big Bang Theory, Louie, Modern Family and HBO series Girls and Veep. Louis C.K. did well in addition to his show being nominated – he also picked up nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor, hosting Saturday Night Live, and for his special “Oh My God.” Between Two Ferns also picked up a nomination for Short-Format-Live Action Entertainment.

    No love for Parks And Rec? How oh how is Nick Offerman snubbed every year? Ron Swanson is one of the best comedic characters on TV in the last two decades. Also, I know they love to nominate all of the cast of Modern Family each year but at this point Thank you Burrell is the only one that should keep getting the noms on that show.

    What do you think?
