Emmy Nominations Announced  

Congratulations to Bear McCreary who really really deserves not only to nominated but to win because he's just amazing.

But if you've read up on who was nominated this year you will realize that Original Dramatic Score is the only category Outlander made it into. Granted I'm sure there are a lot of really great nominated actors and shows but I really think the "Peers" just missed the mark here.

Actually a little surprised they didn't get more nominations, but looking at the list it seems like the Emmy's are playing it safe this year.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on July 24th, 2015 12:35 am (UTC)
Right? I'm not that happy with the Emmy's. I will likely fast forward to see a few things including score but that is about it.
Kaylee Winchester: Outlander-Claireroguem on July 27th, 2015 10:56 am (UTC)
At least Orphan Black finally got a nomination, haven't seen it, but have heard many good things about the main actress.

Hopefully next year they will give Outlander some more recognition.
Jill aka Jo: Happy: Calvin Smilesireesanwar on July 28th, 2015 10:46 pm (UTC)
I love Orphan Black. Just binge watched it. I was stunned how good it is. Tatiana Maslany is amazing on that show. She totally deserves it.

Yes, hopefully. I can see some upcoming scenes in my head that could be Emmy worthy.
Kaylee Winchester: Outlander-Claireroguem on August 4th, 2015 10:47 am (UTC)
Good to know. I've been meaning to watch it for a while, just never gotten around to it.

Me too.
Jill aka Jo: Outlander: Claire Bottoms Upsireesanwar on August 5th, 2015 08:38 pm (UTC)
Well it is worth it. The first episode sucked me in and I could never get enough.
Kaylee Winchester: Supernatural - Dean Smileroguem on August 9th, 2015 11:46 am (UTC)
Well putting that as my next binge watch then. :)
Jill aka Josireesanwar on August 11th, 2015 11:48 pm (UTC)
I hope you like it. Feel free to tell me what you think of it when you get around to it.
Kaylee Winchester: Supernatural - Dean Rock Onroguem on August 22nd, 2015 10:56 am (UTC)
Just finished season 1, really enjoying it. Tatiana is amazing!
Can't believe it took the Emmys so long to notice her.
Jill aka Jo: OB: Sarah Gun Rangesireesanwar on August 24th, 2015 11:30 pm (UTC)
Tatiana is totally amazing and it is shocking how long it took the Emmy's to notice her work. She's so good it isn't funny!

So glad you are liking the show. I can't say I've ever been bored and I've seen all three seasons so far.
Kaylee Winchester: Outlander The Frasersroguem on August 26th, 2015 10:08 am (UTC)
I'm halfway through season 3. Just really enjoying it.

I lost faith in awardshows a long time ago, but it's good she was finally noticed by the Emmys she really deserves it.

Do you mind if I add you to my friendslist? I kind of figure we have a bit in common with the love for Outlander, Orphan Black and The Pretender. :)
Jill aka Jo: TP: Pretender Jarodsireesanwar on September 8th, 2015 10:32 pm (UTC)
Wow, late in responding. So sorry.

Okay so I'm totally okay with you friending me. And you love The Pretender. Oh man that is amazing. Pardon me if I supposedly already knew that....

very cool.
Kaylee Winchester: Supernatural - Dean Rock Onroguem on September 10th, 2015 09:53 am (UTC)
Added you back.
I found myself on your Pretender page sometime before the summer. I was absolutely addicted to that show back in the day.
Jill aka Jo: H50: Kono blue water and beachsireesanwar on September 10th, 2015 09:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I can't give up the page. My site is moving which sucks but it has to happen. I could take it down but I really don't want too. It is one of the few still out there will tons of information that took so long to gather so...

I still love the show but it has been a while since I've watched it and while the Writers are doing stuff with the story there isn't a lot to tell.

yay friend!
Kaylee Winchester: Supernatural - Dean Smileroguem on September 13th, 2015 10:00 am (UTC)
I feel the same about my X-Men page. Once you've put all the work in, it would be a pity just to delete it all.

I bought it, but it's been a very long time since I watched it all too.

Yay. :)
Jill aka Jo: V: Rollosireesanwar on September 16th, 2015 12:01 am (UTC)
Exactly! Where is your x-men page. I wanna see it. ;-D

I have it all too but yeah... so long.
Kaylee Winchester: X-Men - Logan X3 posterroguem on September 17th, 2015 01:39 pm (UTC)
Hah, well you asked for it. http://rogue-x-men.blogspot.no/
