Reaction to the 2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

Reaction to the 2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises The Primetime Emmy nominations were announced Thursday morning, here are my thoughts on some of the big categories.  Outstanding Comedy Series:  Louie,  Modern Family,  Parks & Recreation,  Silicon Valley,  Transparent,  Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,  Veep The surprises here were good ones, Parks and Recreation and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt are both terrific shows and deserved their spots. Veep , of course, is always deserving. Emmy voters were never going to deny Louie and Modern Family. Haven't seen the other two.  Outstanding Drama Series:  Better Call Saul,  Downton Abbey,  Game of Thrones,  Homeland,  House of Cards,  Mad Men,  Orange Is The New Black The snubs include Empire, w hich I haven't seen, but many people seem to like, and Bloodline , which I liked, if not loved,   The Americans and The Good Wife . Honestly I don't think very highly of any of the shows that were nominated.

Each week I would learn something new about the films I thought I knew every about. After a year and a half of research, here is how I ranked them:
