My Commentary

  • I still do not understand the love for The unbreakable kimmy schmidt. How did this get nominated over jane the virgin?
  • Speaking of Jane the Virgin, no Gina Rodriguez lead actress? How can she win the golden globe and not even get a nomination
  • In another GG snub – I am obsessed with the Affair and thought that after it won the Golden Globe it would get some love! yet not the case for the series or the actors (if you are not watching this show watch!)
  • Aren’t Homeland and Downton Abbey (Which i personally love) a bit past their prime? How did it get over Empire, Outlander and The Affair
