The 2013 Emmy Nominations Are In!

F--- Yeah Kerry Washington!!!!!!

The nominations for the 65th annual Emmy Awards just came in at 5:30 am Pacific Time and OMGeeeeee!!! It’s a great day to be a Gladiator! Our girl Kerry Washington is officially an Emmy-nominated actress! And she’s also the first black actress to be nominated for Lead Actress In A Drama Series since Cicely Tyson in 1995. That is insane. And let me just say that the BET Awards have been showing Kerry proper lurve since 2006, when she starred in movies like The Last King of Scotland and I Think I Love My Wife. It’s nice to see that, with the success of Scandal, the rest of the world is catching on to the amazingness that is K-Wash. I’m so happy for her, and I’m sure she’s somewhere celebrating like cray with her handsome new husband. Okay, and yes, lots of other people and shows got nominated this year (American Horror Story: Asylum leads the pack with 17 nods) so click inside for more!

There are many more nominees– you can go to Indiewire to see the full list.

Sooo excited for Kerry! And also, sooo excited for my other favorite actress Elisabeth Moss– she’s nominated for her role on Mad Men and also for Top Of The Lake, which PITNBr Jen C recommended to me a while back. Also peeped that Dan Bucatinsky– AKA Cyrus‘s husband, James on Scandal– got nominated too!

Now, other than Scandal, The Good Wife, Mad Men, and Revenge (and… okay… Love & Hip-Hop, which, shockingly, received no nominations) I haven’t really watched any of these shows religiously. I’m just now getting into Downton Abbey, and I’ve caught a lot of the other nominees here and there, but I can’t really say who I think should or shouldn’t win. Did any of your faves get nominated? Any snubs?

Yeah, no. I’m just really excited to be a Scandal Gladiator right now!!! Woot! Woot!

  1. Lots of love for Game of Thrones, so I’m pleased!

  2. Stephanie

    When I heard Kerry Washington was nominated, I knew I had to get on here to see your reaction! LOVE that show!! So excited for Dan Bucatinsky, but no love for Jeff Perry (Cyrus)?!? An injustice!

  3. Game of Thrones is SO overrated!!! Who wants to watch a show with incest?!?!?! EWWW

    With that being said, how can you even compare a show like “Girls” to Modern Family”?! Both are awesome but for SUCH different reasons…

    • Obviously, you have not been watching the awesomeness that is Game of Thrones. If you had been, you would realize that the incest storyline has not been very prominent for the last few seasons. This season was all about the Red Wedding!

  4. These nominations are huge for Netflix! Wow!

    Also, soooo excited for the Game of Thrones love! That show is phenomenal. Amazing storytelling. And so, SO excited for Amy Poehler!! I hope this is her year for a win (finally!) because she definitely deserves it. :)

    • ClaireMichelle, you are so right– Netflix is taking OV-AH! Very exciting stuff. I’m hoping Amy Poehler gets some lurve too :)

    • Joanna

      This is as history making for Netfilx as it was for HBO a couple of years ago when they had more Emmy nominations than the 4 big networks. Pretty soon they will be regulars at the Emmys. This is a big win of sorts for internet programming. I hear that Hulu is trying to jump on the “Original Series” bandwagon with their own drama. If that one proves to be as successful as “House of Cards” then maybe they too can be part of the Emmy lurve next year.

    • @Joanna — Hulu has been trying to do what Netflix has done for years. Their programming just hasn’t come close to reaching the level of excellence required to stand out. Netflix invested in amazing actors, amazing writers and amazing directors. It looks like that investment is paying off so far.

    • Yes, and House of Cards was also data created. Kevin Spacey and David Fincher are two of Netflix’s top subscriber “favorites”, so they got them together and said let’s make a show with you two and people will watch.

    • From NPR:
      The success of House of Cards is no accident. Netflix executives knew exactly what their millions of customers were watching; they knew precisely how popular the works of Fincher were, and how many of their customers were fans of Kevin Spacey, and how many people were streaming the British House of Cards. Sifting through that mountain of data, Netflix executives were able to predict that House of Cards would be just what Netflix viewers would want to watch”

    • @Krissy — It’s a brilliant strategy. They knew what they wanted, they figured out how to get it and … so far, success. I predict Netflix will take home a least one Emmy this year.

    • I like the strategy for totally selfish reasons…I feel like they will have more shows tailor made to my tastes! I LOVE both dramas and comedies that are made in the vein of HBO or Showtime series…a little darker, edgier. I think the popularity of the programs on those channels allowed shows like Mad Men, Louie and Breaking Bad to get made. Now that we have Netflix, I feel that we could have even more of this kind of program because the demand is being heard loud and clear!

  5. Lexie

    I am almost through Scandal season 2!!!! I am so on board the Scandal train!

  6. SD

    i LOVE Kerry Washington but i think she overacts in Scandal. How did Monica Potter from Parenthood not get a nom?!

    • SD, I am SO excited for Kerry and at the same time I don’t necessarily think she deserves the win (though I’d be hella excited if it happened). But don’t tell anyone I said that…

  7. Glad to see the love for Kerry Washington…also so glad to see Connie Britton getting a nod! (She was robbed on FNL, imo).

    Elizabeth Moss is cleaning up as well! Noms in lead actress in both miniseries and drama!

  8. helen

    No Victoria Grayson? No Penny?… Boo you whore!

  9. MJ

    The one show I’m sad didn’t get any love is The Americans. Kerri Russell and Matthew Rhys are awesome on it. I highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it.

  10. Lacey

    I’m sad that Sherlock didn’t get any love! It’s such an outstanding show, Benedict deserved a nod for that.

  11. Aww. I had hoped Michelle Fairley would be nominated for The Red Wedding episode of GoT. Happy to see Peter Dinklage is nominated though.

    • Em

      Many would, but she is 1 of 3 that I know, that didn’t actually put themselves forward for the nomination ballot. Charles Dance & Maisie Williams were two other GoT actors that chose not too – 3 actors I think were strongest this season.

      I’m so Team Amy, even though 30 Rock is my fave! It comes down to voters either voting for Tina cause it’s a farewell, or still on the Girls bandwagon. This is Amy’s second to last year being nomination for Parks as it’s def getting the axe after the upcoming season. And same with Jon Hamm – he NEEDS this Emmy, it’s actually ridiculous.

      And I think when it comes down to the other ladies, it all depends on what episode (or scene) that Claire used to submit, cause if it’s a latter half of the season, she could definitely lose – if I were her, I would’ve gone Ep 3 or 4 for a guaranteed win.

  12. Truth!

    I can’t’ believe Grey’s Anatomy is nominated for NOTHING! THAT’S BULLSHIT I WON’T BE WATCHING. FUCK THE EMMYS
