Team Experience: One last agonized cry for the snubbees this Emmy nomination day!

As is our habit,we polled Team Experience this morning to see which Emmy snub yanked them straight to mourning this morning.Here are their answers.Please share your own in the comments,won't you?Misery loves company!

CHRIS FEIL:MJ Rodriguez in POSE.While we can hope that Billy Porter's immensely deserved nomination can represent the entire ensemble with a win,it still leavesPose's exquisite female cast members unrewarded including the most deserving: Mj Rodriguez's resilient and compassionate house mother Blanca.It's infuriating that the show's directing and writing went unrecognized due to theGame of Thronesglut,but to have denied the season's emotional epicenter is just about unconscionable.Hers is the work that most embodies the multifaceted show and all of its triumphs and power.

DEBORAH LIPP:Gentleman Jackgot crowded out,why?Emilia Clark over Suranne Jones is not supportable.FOUR nominations for Game of Thrones over Sophie Rundle in supporting actress is not supportable.Game of Thrones' worst season over this breakthrough new series is NOT!SUPPORTABLE!

lots more weeping after the jump...

Who will win the Emmy for Comedy and Drama Series?

By Spencer Coile

Happy Emmy Day,everyone!It's been fun dissecting some of the major categories leading up to this fateful evening,where we will finally see who is awarded.Both the Comedy and Drama Series races are some of the most exciting in years.Seriously,it's been eight years since something aside fromModern FamilyorVeephas won Best Comedy Series,so anything that wins this year will be a relief.So let's speculate on who will take the top prizes of Emmy night...

Blueprints: "GLOW"

As we steamroll towards Emmy season,Jorgewill be diving into the pilot episodes for some of the Best Series nominees from now until the ceremony on September 17.This week,he steps into the ring for some gorgeous lady wrestling…

If a TV show has the Jenji Kohan seal (either as a creator or as an executive producer),there are several things you can expect from it: biting satire that effortlessly moves from dark comedy to emotional drama,a focus on female stories,and large ensembles.

GLOW,Netflix's second big collaboration with Kohan afterOrange Is the New Black(though here only in a producer capacity) is a perfect embodiment of these traits.Let's take a look at how writer-creator's for the hit comedy,Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch,introduce and establish the main characters that we will be following in this journey of self-empowerment and risky physical maneuvers...

Emmy Nominations for 2018: Glow,Mrs Maisel,Game of Thrones,and the Snubbing of Mindhunter

Happy 70th,Emmys!The big awards night won't be held until September 17th (hosted by Colin Jost and Michael Che) but the nominations were announced this morning.The Emmys have so many categories that beware when you seeanysite that says "full list of nominees."Even the major news outlets (like Variety and all the massive circulation papers) do this while leaving out a shit ton of categories.In other words don't believe it when anyone says "full list".The only place that regularly shares that is the Emmy site itself.Here's the PDF.

The behemoth,once again,is "Game of Thrones"which,after a year off,returns again to its throne of "Most Nominated Show"just barely edging out "Saturday Night Live,""West World"and "The Handmaid's Tale"all of which received 20 or more nominations.I was particularly happy about plentiful nominations for "GLOW"though it's worth noting that these nominations are not from the show as we know it right this second but from season 1 a full year ago.

After the jump the major stuff and a few other categories that we're interested in...

Costume Design and Cinematography Guild Honors

by Nathaniel R

Sometimes all it takes is one killer lewk.You might not have thought ofThree Billboards Outside Ebbing Missourias a "costume"movie but the Costumer Designer Guild gave it one of their contemporary nominations all the same.Must've been that already famous janitor jumpsuit with bandana on Frances McDormand.It's so very "Mildred".Either that or,you know,the Guilds are just voting on their favorite movies (as they arealsoprone to do) without thinking too much on their own fields within those movies.Who knows what lurks in the hearts of awards voters?No one truly as they're non monolithic.

More on their nominations (and the Cinematography guild also) with commentary after the jump...

TV Riches.Here are just a few highlights...

Year in review lists/recaps each day.TV is too vast a topic for one list but here's a list of personal favorites from Spencer Coile

2017 was a messy year.While we may be entrenched in cultural,political,and social turmoil,one area that keeps getting better is television.From the return of David Lynch'sTwin Peaksand NBC'sWill & Grace(proving that some revivals do work),to the rise of Hulu series,through  the continuation of prestige dramas from HBO,the golden age of TV continues.Because there's such a vast array of shows out there we all have our blindspots so please know that this is but a personal list and you should definitely share yours.  To make room for all of the excellent work put out this year,here are favorite individual and duo performances but let's kick things off with a tribute to the ladies via Ensembles...
