Emmy Awards 2014: The Nominations

 
The Television Academy is really out of touch. It's so out of touch, that I wonder if they even watch TV. I guess I'll have to leave this for the Emmy Snub List.
 
 
 
Mindy Kaling and Carson Daly announced the nominees of the 66th Emmy Awards, yesterday in Hollywood yesterday.  The Mindy Project actress and creator and The Voice host, woke up early to make or break people's dreams. And hearts were broken. Including ours. But we also rejoiced for some of the great decisions the academy made. So great that Orange Is The New Black, Fargo, Game of Thrones, True Detective and Mad Men are nominated.
