The Emmy nominations were announced this past Thursday, and for the most part they were right on the mark. The ceremony won't be held until September 18th, so you have until then to watch every episode of every nominated title.
OK, maybe that’s a little extreme, but here are my picks for the ones you should try to catch up on this weekend.
| 1. –“Game of Thrones”: Last year’s Outstanding Drama winner is back and some could argue that this season was better than the previous one.
||2. – “Veep”: Remember what I just said about “Game of Thrones”? Recycle that comment but replace the word “Drama” with “Comedy.”|
| 3. – “Silicon Valley”: Even after what I consider to be a very uneven season, “Silicon Valley” is still one of the best comedies on TV.
|| 4. – “Ray Donovan”: Liev Schreiber’s Lead Actor in a Drama nod is very well deserved.
|5. – “Orphan Black”: – Tatiana Maslany doesn’t just deserve one Emmy, she deserves an Emmy for each role she plays on this amazing series.|| 6. – “Homeland”: Here’s a show that seemed to level off after a hot start, but it really picked up steam again this season.
