BEST COMEDY SERIES

Orange is the New Black

Could this be it? Could this be the year Modern Family is knocked off its perch as reigning Best Comedy of the last four years? If any show can do it, it’s Orange Is The New Black. With 12 nominations this year – helping Netflix more than double their numbers from last year – against Modern Family’s 10, and Best Guest Actress already in the bag with Uzo “Crazy Eyes” Aduba’s win at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards last week, things are looking rosy for Orange.

Considering that OITNB star Taylor Schilling was nominated for a Golden Globe this year for Best Actress in a TV Drama, I was a little confused by the show being Emmy nominated for Best Comedy. I’m not sure if the show determines which genre they’re in contention for, or if it’s dealer’s choice, with the Dorian and Image Awards designating OITNB a drama, and the Critics’ Choice Awards and Writers Guild of America calling it a comedy.

What are the odds Veep or The Big Bang Theory finally get their chance? Honestly, I think Louie would win before either of them. Nobody I know watches HBO newbie Silicon Valley, have you seen it? Is it amazing? Really what I’m asking is, is it worthy of displacing Parks & Recreation from the category? Because that’s the Emmy snub I’m feeling the most.
