Emmy Awards 2016: Who Should (and Shouldn't) Be Nominated

After another extraordinary year in television, Lauren Graham and Anthony Anderson will announce the nominees for the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards on July 14. In anticipation of the Television Academy's annual celebration — and exercise in frustration — I've compiled a list of my dream nominees. Given how many praiseworthy performances there were on TV this year, I've also included the actors whose work I wouldn't mind being recognized. And because there's a touch of snark to everything I do, I've added some of the tiresome veterans and overly praised newcomers with whom I cannot even.     DRAMA Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series COMEDY Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series LIMITED SERIES/FILM Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie   DRAMA Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series In a perfect world: Matthew Rhys, The Americans Rami Malek, Mr. Robot Justin Theroux, The Leftovers OK, sure: Steve Buscemi, Horace and Pete Freddie Highmore, Bates Motel Kyle Chandler, Bloodline Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul Aaron Paul, The Path Liev Schreiber, Ray Donovan Damian Lewis, Billions Louis C.K., Horace and Pete Sam Heughan, Outlander Just... no: Kevin Spacey, House of Cards Bobby Cannavale, Vinyl Clive Owen, The Knick Wagner Moura, Narcos The Americans is the best show on television right now, and the fact that neither of its leads has received an Emmy nomination is as insane as the idea of two KGB spies living across the street from an FBI agent and becoming best buds. On the flip side, enough with Kevin Spacey and all of House of Cards , basically.   Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series In a perfect world: Keri Russell, The Americans Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black Krysten Ritter, Jessica Jones Carrie Coon, The Leftovers Caitriona Balfe, Outlander Shiri Appleby, UnREAL OK, sure: Claire Danes, Homeland Sarah Lancashire, Happy Valley Eva Green, Penny Dreadful Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder Taraji P. Henson, Empire Ellen Pompeo, Grey's Anatomy Vera Farmiga, Bates Motel Gillian Anderson, The X-Files Just... no: Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey Robin Wright, House of Cards Taylor Schilling, Orange is the New Black What Tatiana Maslany does on Orphan Black is truly other-worldly, so hopefully she'll earn her second consecutive nomination (after two brutal snubs) — and win. If Keri Russell doesn't finally get the Academy recognition she deserves… well, then, it will be like every other day, except I'll be extra eye-rolly. Julianna Margulies and Michelle Dockery did good work, but this year good is not enough.   Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series In a perfect world: Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones Christian Slater, Mr. Robot Mandy Patinkin, Homeland Jordan Gavaris, Orphan Black Rupert Friend, Homeland OK, sure: Christopher Eccleston, The Leftovers Jonathan Banks, Better Call Saul Michael McKean, Better Call Saul Hugh Dancy, The Path Andre Holland, The Knick Tobias Menzies, Outlander Alan Alda, Horace and Pete Ray Romano, Vinyl Just... no: Alan Cumming, The Good Wife Jim Carter, Downton Abbey Tatiana Maslany understandably gets the lion's share of praise for Orphan Black 's success, but Jordan Gavaris is, in many ways, the heart of the show. My down-with- Downton campaign continues here, of course. Just say no to mediocrity   Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series In a perfect world: Kate Mulgrew, Orange Is the New Black Regina King, The Leftovers Constance Zimmer, UnREAL Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones Alison Wright, The Americans Billie Piper, Penny Dreadful OK, sure: Lena Headey, Game of Thrones Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones Uzo Aduba, Orange Is the New Black Miranda Otto, Homeland Malin Akerman, Billions Holly Taylor, The Americans Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey Just... no: Christine Baranski, The Good Wife Joanne Froggatt, Downton Abbey One of the best TV stories to come out of the past few years is the resurgence of Regina King. Feel free to give her another Emmy, this time for The Leftovers . Just don't let Joanne Froggatt take up a spot for another year of worried glances and knowing smiles.   COMEDY Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series In a perfect world: Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent Rob Delaney, Catastrophe Fred Savage, The Grinder Chris Geere, You’re the Worst Will Forte, The Last Man on Earth OK, sure: Rob Lowe, The Grinder Gael Garcia Bernal, Mozart in the Jungle Thomas Middleditch, Silicon Valley Anthony Anderson, Black-ish Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine William H. Macy, Shameless Fred Armisen, Portlandia Billy Eichner, Difficult People Just... no: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory Don Cheadle, House of Lies Aziz Ansari, Master of None Chris Geere does really fantastic work on the woefully underrated (in both senses of the word) You’re the Worst . And while Master of None is a very good show, Aziz Ansari is not a very good actor.   Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series In a perfect world: Rachel Bloom, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Aya Cash, You’re the Worst Tracee Ellis Ross, Black-ish Gina Rodriguez, Jane the Virgin Ellie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Sharon Horgan, Catastrophe OK, sure: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep Amy Schumer, Inside Amy Schumer Lily Tomlin, Grace and Frankie Jane Fonda, Grace and Frankie Laurie Metcalf, Getting On Michaela Watkins, Casual Martha Plimpton, The Real O’Neals Abbi Jacobson, Broad City Ilana Glazer, Broad City Anna Faris, Mom Maria Bamford, Lady Dynamite This is where it's at. There is no one in the award conversation to whom I'd object being nominated, but I do sincerely hope Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom is among the nominees. Few actress are tasked with doing as much as she does each week on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend .   Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series In a perfect world: Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Tony Hale, Veep Andre Braugher, Brooklyn Nine-Nine Jaime Camil, Jane the Virgin Adam Driver, Girls Santino Fontana, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend OK, sure: Steve Zissis, Togetherness Ty Burrell, Modern Family Louie Anderson, Baskets T.J. Miller, Silicon Valley Noah Galvin, The Real O'Neals Just... no: Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family Ed O'Neill, Modern Family Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family A little love for the CW, please? Feel free to skip Modern Family completely, however. This was not their year.   Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series In a perfect world: Kether Donohue, You’re the Worst Melanie Lynskey, Togetherness Jane Krakowski, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Donna Lynne Champlin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Niecy Nash, Getting On Gaby Hoffmann, Transparent OK, sure: Anna Chlumsky, Veep Allison Williams, Girls Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live Amanda Peet, Togetherness Eden Sher, The Middle Judith Light, Transparent Chelsea Peretti, Brooklyn Nine-Nine Noel Wells, Master of None Just... no: Allison Janney, Mom Mayim Bialik, The Big Bang Theory Julie Bowen, Modern Family Sofia Vergara, Modern Family Another shout-out for You're the Worst , which is one of the best. Also among the best: Togetherness ' Melanie Lynskey, who is typically the MVP of everything she's in.   LIMITED SERIES/FILM Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie In a perfect world: Courtney B. Vance, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story Patrick Wilson, Fargo Tom Hiddleston, The Night Manager Ben Whishaw, London Spy Malachi Kirby, Roots OK, sure: Oscar Isaac, Show Me a Hero Bryan Cranston, All the Way Timothy Hutton, American Crime Anthony Hopkins, The Dresser Richard Dreyfuss, Madoff Idris Elba, Luther Matt Bomer, American Horror Story: Hotel Ian McKellen, The Dresser Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock London Spy worked because of Ben Whishaw's haunting performance. All the awards!   Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie In a perfect world: Sarah Paulson, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story Kirsten Dunst, Fargo Kerry Washington, Confirmation Lili Taylor, American Crime Felicity Huffman, American Crime OK, sure: Audra McDonald, Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill Angela Lansbury, Driving Miss Daisy Blythe Danner, Madoff Just... no: Lady Gaga, American Horror Story: Hotel Look, Lady Gaga wasn't bad in AHS . In fact, she was surprisingly good. But not award-worthy, no matter what those maniacs at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association think.   Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie In a perfect world: Sterling K. Brown, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story Connor Jessup, American Crime Denis O’Hare, American Horror Story: Hotel Jesse Plemons, Fargo Hugh Laurie, The Night Manager OK, sure: Alfred Molina, Show Me a Hero Bokeem Woodbine, Fargo Wendell Pierce, Confirmation John Travolta, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story Chris Cooper, 11.22.63 In an incredibly dark and violent season of AHS , Denis O’Hare was a beacon of light. But Sterling K. Brown was superlative.   Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie In a perfect world: Olivia Colman, The Night Manager Regina King, American Crime Jean Smart, Fargo Melissa Leo, All the Way OK, sure: Catherine Keener, Show Me a Hero Sarah Paulson, American Horror Story: Hotel Anna Paquin, Roots Kathy Bates, American Horror Story: Hotel Vera Farmiga, Special Correspondents Just a few years ago, Regina King called out the Emmys' lack of diversity among nominees and resigned herself to the fact that ruffling Academy feathers could cost her future recognition. Now she has two acting nominations in one year. And she should win.   T.J. DeGroat is the editor of SideReel. He can't believe Lauren Graham has never been nominated for an Emmy.
