My thoughts

  • Very exited for my favorite show of the season Outlander to be nominated for Drama and Caitriona Balfe for lead actress
  • I love thatEmpire got nominated, but how does a show with Cookie Lyons and al lthat music not go into the Comedy and Musical category. But yeii for a Cookie nomination!!
  • Narcos? Ughh, and the horrible accent of Wagner Moura got nominated
  • I guess I might need to give Mr. Robot a new look
  • I loved Mozart in thr Jungle and so good that it got nominated
  • Btw how great did the streaming services do! Go amazon, Hulu and Netflix?
  • Flesh and Bone is my latest obsession and I highly recommend it
  • In the movie side, just too many movies to watch – that is all… I have only seen 2 movies of the nominated ones
  • With all the snub commentray some of the ones i agree with that i would have liked to see: UnReal, Sam Heughan, Outlander, Jane the Virgin, Ruth Wilson, The Affair
