Emmy noms: another Orphan Blackout

Emmy noms: another Orphan Blackout

How many people do you have to be to get an Emmy nomination around here?ūüėČ

The 66th annual Prime Time Emmy nominations were announced today…and a lot of people really thought they would recognize Tatiana Maslany for her performances (yes, plural) on Orphan Black…but once again, the clone stands alone.

In fact, the series didn’t get nominated at all…not for writing, directing, costumes, hair…nada.

Looking at the

full list of 2013-2014 Emmy nominations

it really isn’t very geek friendly, although there were acting noms for American Horror Story and Game of Thrones. In fact, Game of Thrones got nominated for…well, pretty much everything.

Some call-outs, before we get into the big listing:

  • The Cosmos¬†reboot received 12 Emmy nominations in its first year: the original Cosmos got a total of 5 Emmy nominations (and won 3)
  • Respect! Nominated series include The Originals, Sleepy Hollow, The 100, and Children’s Hospital
  • Diana Rigg was nominated for the second year in a row as a guest on Game of Thrones. Rigg has won one Emmy before…and not for Mrs. Peel (although she was nominated for that role)
  • Mayim Bialik was nominated for the third year in a row for playing Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory (Fowler had not been nominated for Blossom)
  • Speaking of tBBT, Jim Parsons was nominated for the fifth time for playing Sheldon Cooper. Parsons has won as Cooper three times. The actor was also recognized this year for The Normal Heart
  • Steven Moffatt was nominated for a fourth time…all of them have been for writing Sherlock
  • Anna Nicole was nominated for prosthetic make-up…nothing on the CW or Syfy was
  • Nothing was nominated from MTV (couldn’t Teen Wolf have been nominated in the prosthetic make-up category) or Syfy
