My Weekend SMASH

So did you hear, the Emmy nominations came out yesterday?

The good news? All the “Orange Is the New Black” nominations including but not limited to those for Taylor, Laverne, Uzo, Natasha and Kate, the nomination for Lena Headey, the nomination for Kate McKinnon, the nomination for Jessica Lange, the nomination for Sarah Paulson, the nominations for the SNL Alumni Holy Trinity of Tina, Amy and Kristen.

The bad news? TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED. TATIANA MASLANY WAS ROBBED.

Oh, Sorry, Emmys. It wasn’t enough that Tatiana has played NINE DIFFERENT CHARACTERS on screen. She has also played multiple combinations of said characters posing as another one of the nine on screen. And done all of it flawlessly. But, I totally get it, this is a weirdo show about clones and science and stuff only nerds like. And you already nominated a show with dragons – so you could hardly be expected to also nominate one with clones. What is this, the circus? If you went and nominated every performance that actually deserved a nomination willy-nilly regardless of genre people might talk.

Except, you know, the opposite of all of that. I woke up late yesterday to the news and The Internet had already cycled through the stages of grief from Denial to Anger and ultimately Acceptance. But I just can’t get past the SNARKER SMASH stage. Give me something to breaaaak! Or dance just dance it out. Or better yet both. Happy Tatiana Was Robbed, All.

This is the same Emmy committee that nominated the OITNB actors under "Comedy". Smh. Nothing surprises me that they do.

@anonymous Netflix is the one who chose the category it was going to run under. Netflix picked COMEDY rather than DRAMA for 2 reasons. It did not want to compete against its own show House of Cards and because the last time they placed OITNB into a drama category for a different award, it was trounced.

So if the show is considered a Comedy, then the actors and actresses have to follow suit and be nominated within that same category.

I like OB, but I can understand why it's acting, though good and unique, is not considered great. Sorry !

I was totally bummed. And I disagree with Tristen. Tatiana's acting IS great. Maybe I could agree that the show as a whole is not as even acting wise. But Tatiana doing so many totally different characters...it's just unbelievable that she wasn't even nominated.

Some people do not understand the Acting & the Comedy. I think this two thing has a pretty difference.
