    Let's get these people moving faster! Supporter

    I haven't read commentary on this, so pardon me if I'm making a really common point, but strikes me as odd that certain categories, particularly supporting actor/actress, have up to 3 nominees from the same series. Don't get me wrong, I even like the shows who received a lot of love like that, but seems to take the fun out of it.

    Jason Tate and AVanMill17 like this.

    The Emmys always remind me just how much good TV there is out there and how much more I need to watch. There’s just too many shows! Haha
