Emmy Rage! Best TV Actress Snubbed! Los Angeles Must Burn!

The Emmy nominations for "Best Actressing On The TV" are in this morning, and, ugh:

Connie Britton, “Nashville”

Claire Danes, “Homeland”

Michelle Dockery, “Downton Abbey”

Vera Farmiga, “Bates Motel”

Elisabeth Moss, “Mad Men”

Kerry Washington, “Scandal”

Robin Wright, “House of Cards.”

We all know who's missing: Tatiana Maslany, the genius of "Orphan Black." Fortunately most "Orphan Black" enthusiasts—and Tatiana herself!—are gathered in San Diego for that nerd convention called Comic-Con. So they can march together on Los Angeles, AND REDUCE IT TO RUBBLE.

No love for Keri Russell in The Americans either?!

Mr. B (#10,093)

Norman's Bates's mother's name is Norma?

@Mr. B At first there are all sorts of eye-rolly things going on with that show (Norman is in High School! Dealing with cute girls and being the new kid! And it's set in the present day!) but Vera Farmiga is absolutely amazing and SO deserves the Emmy nod, especially for the last two episodes of the season.

I've also just discovered that "Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program" is a category for an award of some kind. Burn it down.

Too busy being pissed over the Pannetiere* snub.

(almost certainly a misspelling)

Orphan Black's hair wrangler also deserves an award.

I just wish Emmy Rage had been nominated. But she'll probably win the Golden Globe.

Flaneur (#998)

This is indeed an outrage. Maslany is beyond brilliant.

That category should just be the girls from Bunheads. And Elisabeth Moss.

The jokes on us, it was really Tatiana Maslany playing all those actresses playing their Emmy-nominated roles.

There's TV? With shows? That someone watches?
