Where to begin? Oh yeah, yet another snub for Tatiana Maslany

On the plus side, The Normal Heart swept the acting noms, with four guys up for Supporting Actor. Hopefully they won’t cancel each other out.

AHS: Coven also swept the acting noms, but no nom for Guest Actress for Stevie Nicks? I call bullshit.

So glad to see Kate Mulgrew nominated, and of course Laverne Cox has now made history.

Delighted that Kate McKinnon is up for SNL, and Andre Braugher is nominated for his gay captain on Brooklyn Nine Nine.

My pick for worst nomination: Silicon Valley

Okay, your turn! What are your thoughts on the noms, and who are you rooting for?
