Congratulations and commiserations to Melissa McCarthy for her Emmy nomination as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. Last night’s ceremony saw Julia Louis Dreyfus taking the award for Veep, but wowsers did Melissa look great…
It was a tough year, with contenders like Lena Dunham (Girls), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) and Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black).
Of course, we don’t take the Emmys that seriously here, with Gilmore Girls being virtually snubbed, receiving one lonely nomination during the seven years, for Outstanding Make-Up for a Series (Non-Prosthetic) – for the Festival of Living Art episode. Which it won, obviously.
Don’t you think Melissa looks great? Why do you think the Emmys seemed to snub Gilmore Girls? Did Julia Louis Dreyfus deserve the win or do you think Melissa should have won? Would Gilmore Girls have had a movie by now if it had received more awards?
